Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Just once I'd like to see a Star Wars film and be wowed by seeing something completely new and fresh. I didn't hate it, however it commits the crime of being underwhelming and unoriginal. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 13, 2016
D 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Everything is flat & grim, there's hardly no color in this depressing world at all. Anytime the brightest thing is Harley Quinn a psychotic killer & all round annoying character, something is seriously wrong. Actors & audiences deserve better. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2016
D 75% The BFG (2016) Unoriginal, bland and not a good return to form for Steven Spielberg. The film lacked whimsy, warmth and awe. However, there is plenty of fart humor. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 24, 2016
C 91% The Witch (2016) If you aren't a fan of Witchcraft based horror films, this isn't going to change your mind. At times confusing, creepy, and has brief spurts of over the top bloodletting. I left wondering, what did I just watch? ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 21, 2016
B- 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Let's give credit where it's due. The first X-Men film launched the modern era of Superhero films. Unfortunately the latest installment is a mixed bag. Takes 1 step forward and 2 steps back. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 13, 2016
A 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) A near perfect Superhero film! All that destruction in the previous films have real world consequences and those chickens come home to roost. There's no hugging it out this time. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 2, 2016
A 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) One of the greatest Super-Hero Slobberknockers ever filmed! Not Batman v Superman, that fight sucked. The stars of this movie are Doomsday and Wonder Woman! Movie falls just shy of Greatness & hit me in all my fangirl parts! . ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 23, 2016
C- 96% Spotlight (2015) For such an intense story Spotlight ultimately fails because it's so caught up in the process of news gathering that it stops being a compelling movie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 2, 2016
B 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) Tarantino is in love with Westerns because he can get away with using the N word in every sentence. He is an auteur who is in full command of his craft and has a clear, uncompromising vision of what he wants. It's always worth a visit to his world. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 2, 2016
B 81% Ant-Man (2015) This movie proves that fans should wait until a movie is released before passing judgment. Based on the behind the scenes drama this should have been a disaster, instead the little movie that could Triumphs! ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 2, 2016
A- 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) A near perfect Star Wars film that regular fans and fanatics alike have been waiting for, but it suffers by slavishly sticking to the tropes from the original and doesn't strive to go off script. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 17, 2015
F 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) A four year, nearly 9-hour journey and THIS is what it all amounted to? Are you kidding me? No really, is this some sort of joke on the movie going public? ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 20, 2015
A 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) This really isn't a movie, it's a collection of The Peanuts greatest hits strung together into an 80 minute "narrative." It was everything that I hoped it would be. However, it may be a little too sweet and innocent for today's jaded, modern, young'ns. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 6, 2015
B 65% Spectre (2015) Spectre at times feels more like a travelogue of stunning photography than an actual movie. It's one of the most gorgeous looking films I've seen all year. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 6, 2015
C 74% Black Mass (2015) I'm sure the filmmakers weren't trying to make a mind numbingly boring film about the banality of evil, but that's what Black Mass is. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Sep 18, 2015
B No Score Yet Amka And The Three Golden Rules (2014) Amka was a surprising heartfelt journey that was worth the trip. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 9, 2015
D 9% Fantastic Four (2015) FF is bland, joyless, lifeless, claustrophobic, and created by a bunch of idiots who had zero interest in making a Super Hero film much less the Fantastic Four. The entire affair looks lazy and cheap. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2015
B 61% Southpaw (2015) If you saw any boxing film in the last 30 years, you'll see some of the well-worn plot turns coming a mile away, however it's worth stepping into the ring for all the fine performances. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 24, 2015
B 36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Now that we know what to expect from this franchise Sharknado 3 isn't as fun as the original, but still worth one more trip on the crazy train. I desperately want to spoil the amazing, ridiculous ending, ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 21, 2015
B 94% Black Souls (2015) A quiet, contemplative film that shows how one small act of rebellion and violence can escalate and destroy a family. Great performances and cinematography work hampered by an unnecessary twist ending. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 17, 2015
A 79% Furious 7 (2015) I'm not ashamed to say (ok, maybe a little) that I cried like a baby at the end - but I didn't ugly cry. A perfect ending to this 7 film ride and they should just stop now and leave on a high note. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 5, 2015
B 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) My mind screams Noooooooo! This movie sucks and is offensive on so many different levels, but damn my lady parts....Jamie Dornan's abs beat me into submission. Every time I think about them any common sense I have goes out the window. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 13, 2015
B 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Director Matthew Vaughn brings his unique sensibilities and breathes a breath of fresh air to the stagnate Spy Genre. You can't go wrong with Samuel Jackson as a mean mugging, villain who speaks with an hysterically bad lisp. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 13, 2015
C 91% Birdman (2014) Makes you question what's real and not, but doesn't follow through. Two thirds of a absolutely brilliant film that in the end made me want to throw a brick through the screen. Goes completely off the rails. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 13, 2014
C 71% Interstellar (2014) Big on ideas and concepts but falls apart in the 3rd act. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 13, 2014
D 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) Spends an inordinate amount of time teaching Katniss the importance of propaganda. Really? If I wanted to learn about propaganda film-making I'd watch a documentary on Leni Riefenstahl ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 22, 2014
B+ 61% Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Sharknado 2: The Second One is the same as the first and that's all fans of the series should want and expect. It delivers bite! ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2014
A 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Apparently these days all movies have to be dark, grim, joyless, and not allowed to be fun just for the sake of entertaining an audience. I loved every moment of this big, dumb, over the top extravaganza. It's why Summer Blockbusters exist. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 27, 2014
B+ 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) At the end of the day, no matter how poorly this may be directed, written, and acted, the only thing a good comedy needs to do is make you laugh and this one does it in spades. Funniest comedy of 2014. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 30, 2014
C 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Could have been so much more if not for the relentless focus on Wolverine and Magneto. While their performances were good, just sucked the life out of the film. Felt like a retread of the far superior X-Men: First Class. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 23, 2014
C 52% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) It's official, I think I hate every Spider-Man movie, except Spider-Man 2. Can we please have ONE Spider-Man film that doesn't have The Green Goblin? A decent, but shallow, by the numbers corporate blockbuster that doesn't bring anything new to the table. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 2, 2014
D 24% The Other Woman (2014) Humor is is too forced, pedestrian, not at all natural and borderline offensive. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2014
D 73% Oculus (2014) Makes the mistake of taking itself way too seriously. Horror films should be fun and deliver scares; Oculus is a plodding mess that doesn't even follow its own internal logic on a consistent basis. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 13, 2014
B 60% Draft Day (2014) This is an enjoyable, if not forgettable, movie. It is not going to go down as another Costner sports classic. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 11, 2014
A 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) A solid piece of blockbuster filmmaking. Would have LOVED it if I didn't walk in feeling like I've already seen it. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2014
A+ 79% Veronica Mars (2014) Anyone who loved the television show and supported the Kickstarter should adore this film. Rob Thomas and the VM crew deliver a brilliantly constructed film that redefines the phrase "fan service." ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2014
C 60% Non-Stop (2014) Lacks visual flair and comes across as competent but passionless.Very watchable, but there's no oomph to it. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 28, 2014
D 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) Misleading trailer leads to one of the most disappointing films of 2014. Falls apart in a ruinous 3rd act and filled with mixed messaging. Not even kragle could hold this mess together. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 9, 2014
D 30% The Collector (2009) Felt a little bit dirty watching this ugly looking, stale bit of plotless torture porn. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2014
C 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) Who is this movie for? Manic depressives who love folk music? Avoid this movie if the holiday season already upsets you. Well made and acted but relentlessly melancholy. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2013
A 78% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) In many ways this is the ultimate Disney film and embodies everything the company sort of stands for, this is also its downfall. It is a brilliant piece of propaganda. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2013
D 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) The movie fails to make you sympathize with Thorin. I was rooting for him to fail, he'd make a wretched King. Should have been called The Hobbit: Sidequests. I felt like I was watching a Video Game or Theme Park ride pitch and not a real movie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 13, 2013
C- 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Katniss is a sponge. She sucks up the hopes and dreams of everyone around her. If they made a live action version of me playing COD, it'd be called Camp or Hunger Games. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 21, 2013
B 56% Killing Kennedy (2013) Killing Kennedy offers a fresh, if not biased take on the lives of two men that unexpectedly intersects and changes the nation forever. Will Rothhaar and Michelle Trachtenberg give the performance of their careers. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 12, 2013
B 66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) Thanks to a great cast it works surprisingly well, despite annoying technical issues by a Director apparently not ready for this kind of responsibility. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 9, 2013
C 96% Gravity (2013) Bullock and Clooney are good at playing themselves, but it felt like they "phoned" it in making the film feel shallow. Some nice visuals, but nothing that we haven't seen in far better Space films. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 4, 2013
C 89% Rush (2013) Why is it we rarely see male dingleberries? Rush feels more like a advertisement for F1 Racing than a movie with characters I cared about. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Sep 27, 2013
B 89% The World's End (2013) Not as funny as their previous efforts but this is probably Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's most confident and well-conceived film yet. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 23, 2013
B- 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) Throws everything at the wall to see what sticks - Werewolves, vampires, warlocks, love triangles - because what is a tween story without one of those, gay demon hunters, incest...Wait, what? It is a mess, but somehow it works. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 21, 2013
B+ 27% Jobs (2013) Does a fantastic job of giving us a portrait of who Steve Jobs was, but it fails to do it with a critical eye. Kutcher gives us one of the best performances of 2013. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
