Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)

"Montage of Heck is an insightful, moving mosaic that works to immerse you, for better or worse, inside Kurt Cobain's creative process and personal demons." ‐ IGN Movies

The Ridiculous 6 (2015)

"An overly-dumb, obvious, often lazy, obtusely offensive Wild West farce." ‐ IGN Movies

A Very Murray Christmas (2015)

"A Very Murray Christmas is a slight chore to get into, but once it relaxes, unwinds, and has a few drinks it's actually an enjoyably somber affair." ‐ IGN Movies

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)

"All I know is that you'll have fun for a hot minute and then gradually start to seriously question how you're prioritizing your life. The true "Sharknado Effect."" ‐ IGN Movies

The Forger (2015)

"There's about an hour's worth of story in the The Forger, a languid movie that's stretched thin to fill out the running time." ‐ IGN Movies

The Walking Deceased (2015)

"The actual parody parts, and attempts to lampoon the specific movies and TV shows, of The Walking Deceased don't work. It's better when it just settles into a straight comedy." ‐ IGN Movies

Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014)

"It basically contains the emotional capacity of a six-minute Toy Story short so don't expect a tear-filled, transcended experience. But do expect a playful, amusing addition to the growing saga that both kids and grownups will enjoy." ‐ IGN Movies

The Sheik (2014)

"Director Igal Hecht has pulled together a compelling film about an extraordinary man. There are moments of true heartbreak and tragedy mixed with wild road stories and the Iron Sheik's trademark over-the-top personality. " ‐ IGN Movies

Penguins Of Madagascar (2014)

"This isn't phenomenal, transcendent animated cinema, but it's also pretty fun if you're just looking for surface-level silliness with a handful of clever gags and a lot of word play." ‐ IGN Movies

Revenge of the Green Dragons (2014)

"It doesn't bring anything new to the table. And its pacing, grim tone, and cheesy guitar riffs belong squarely in the '80s. " ‐ IGN Movies

Starring Adam West (2013)

"A fine testament to an enduring actor who left Hollywood when it turned on him, but then also enthusiastically returned when it wanted him back. As himself." ‐ IGN Movies

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)

"As an outrageous entity, it holds absolutely nothing back." ‐ IGN Movies

The Nut Job (2014)

"A tedious affair with little to offer other than a chance for your child to see a hugely forgettable romp." ‐ IGN Movies

Mockingbird Lane (2012)

"Some of the jokes are definitely beneath the players here, but some land just right, creating a enjoyably demented journey." ‐ IGN Movies

The Smurfs 2 (2013)

"Smurfs 2 heroically carries on the franchise's traditions of being trite, noisy, and lazily assembled." ‐ IGN Movies

Turbo (2013)

"While mostly harmless, a sluggish Turbo sputters its way to the finish line." ‐ IGN Movies

Epic (2013)

"The fantasy elements are undercooked and the voice cast is random, but Epic pulls everything together in the third act and has some nice payoffs." ‐ IGN Movies

The Croods (2013)

"A familiar story made fresh thanks to great voice acting and dizzying, dazzling action. Parents won't hate themselves afterward." ‐ IGN Movies

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012)

"Exhausting, but still funny; with actual jokes meant for viewers over eight. It's not top-shelf booze, but irreverence wins out." ‐ IGN Movies

Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012)

"Seuss' original message resonates but the rest of the overwrought window dressing that's required to "movie" it up only serves to dilute and bore." ‐ IGN Movies

Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012)

"Do you enjoy diarrhea and screaming? Is your favorite sound effect the "gooey sploosh?" Then the heavens have answered all of your prayers." ‐ IGN Movies

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)

"The ship's captain, at the beginning of the film, is named Captain Corelli. This little item kept me amused for a good ten minutes." ‐ IGN Movies

Puss in Boots (2011)

"Even though the past few Shrek films have been a chore and the character of Puss himself is fairly one-note and perhaps better suited as a side character, this new spin-off film will surprise you with its clever script and hearty adventurer's spirit." ‐ IGN Movies

Cars 2 (2011)

"The Cars characters will never be in danger of melting my heart, but the spy antics in this film are enough of a rip-roaring distraction to carry me through the almost two-hour running time. " ‐ IGN Movies

Mars Needs Moms (2011)

"Mars Needs Moms dares to venture into some sad, tragic territory which, in a perverse way, made the film a bit more enjoyable and prevented it from being completely underwhelming" ‐ IGN Movies

Tron Legacy (2010)

"Whereas 3D has quickly become a dirty, corporate word, Tron: Legacy's use of the new technology to bring the audience directly into this very specific and unique world makes this movie a completely immersive experience." ‐ IGN Movies
