C 88% Titanic (1997) 15 years ago, I didn't let Titanic into my heart, now I get it. Movie is fantastic, but utterly fails as a 3D reissue. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 8, 2012
B 26% Wrath of the Titans (2012) Yes the story is paint by the numbers and Worthington is well, you know, but this is a nice example of spectacle film making on a budget. Most of the large 3D set pieces work really well. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 30, 2012
C- 49% Mirror Mirror (2012) Watching this, I kept thinking all the elements are here, "Why am I not liking it?" The answer is simple Singh crafted a fairy tale world that no one wants to be in. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 30, 2012
A 96% The Muppets (2011) Everything here just works. Its weird, colorful world is breath of cinema fresh air. The Muppets is a world where you just have to believe that these "muppets" are real and not question the whys and how of it. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 28, 2012
D 84% The Hunger Games (2012) Gary Ross clearly does not have enough faith in the material or the world he created to simply let the audience enjoy the ride. The constant shaky cam, out of focus zooms and other unnecessary camera gimmicks literally made me sick. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 24, 2012
A- 51% John Carter (2012) It was nice watching an adaptation that stands on its own two feet. This movie hugged me with all four arms. It is not as great, or epic as it wants to be, but it is thoroughly enjoyable. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 11, 2012
D 17% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) Ish.... ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 19, 2012
C+ 53% Safe House (2012) While the movie does have issues, the star power of the two leads ultimately elevates this sometimes-tired material. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 12, 2012
A 85% Chronicle (2012) Takes all the standard Super Hero movie cliches dresses it up with an interesting "documentary" style approach that makes the movie seem fresher than it actually ends up being. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2012
C- 66% The Woman in Black (2012) This is a limp, lifeless horror movie with no scares dressed up as a "Art House" movie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2012
B 41% Red Tails (2012) Any movie that makes even one person want to find out more about The Tuskegee Airman makes it an worthwhile effort in my book. I walked in with high expectations, I wanted to love this movie but came away just liking it. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 22, 2012
B 26% Underworld: Awakening (2012) The reason the Underworld series works is Kate Beckinsale's portrayal of the all black clad, baddass Vampire Selene is just cool. She doesn't whine, moan, or sparkle she just kicks the butt of anyone who screws her over. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 22, 2012
D 86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Ho, Ho, Anal Rape? Wha?? A boring, bland, exploitative movie with TWO graphic anal rape scenes? This is exactly what I want to see on Christmas weekend! ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 24, 2011
A 76% War Horse (2011) If there was a way to nominate a horse for best Actor, Joey "The Forrest Gump" of horses would get it. The most touching horse bromance I've seen all year. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 24, 2011
A+ 94% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) The skyscraper scene in iMax is worth the price of admission. One of the most exhilarating movie experiences of the last few years. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2011
D 60% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) Can I say, I hate just about everything about this movie and leave it at that? ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2011
B- 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) Can someone please, for the love of god, tell me why everyone falls in love with this woman? What does she do? What are her hopes and dreams for the future? Can't stand Bella. When she and Edward are not on camera, I like the movie well enough. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 20, 2011
C 24% The Three Musketeers (2011) The movie suffers from the malady that all remakes have - if you change it too much it becomes unrecognizable and you upset people like me who want the same thing only modernized, if you keep it the same it becomes unoriginal and a pointless exercise. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 24, 2011
B- 72% Fright Night (2011) Fright Night reaffirms my hatred of 3D. It is another example of a good movie almost ruined by horrible 3D. I was tempted to walk out, but glad I stayed. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 21, 2011
B- 62% Final Destination 5 (2011) The 3D isn't just a gimmick it's an integral part of the movie, fun deaths, and decent cast but the entire thing is marred by a horrific (and not in a good way) third act. Fails to arrive on time by a few minutes. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 15, 2011
C 60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) This movie almost makes me ashamed to be a Gleek. When did Glee become pretentious, pompous and preachy? ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 14, 2011
C 80% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Worst Superhero movie of the summer. Movie spends too much time showing a contempt for the character and is hampered by a script that gives too much away in the wrong places. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 23, 2011
A 96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) The movie still looks drab, dark and blah but Yates has finally made a Harry Potter movie fans can be proud of and sends this Franchise off on a high note. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 17, 2011
B 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) Love him or hate him, Bay knows how to put together an Popcorn Action flick. What do people expect from a movie about Toy Robots? However, Fox was right when she quit this franchise. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 4, 2011
D 32% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) I don't know who to blame for such an awful looking movie - the Director or Cinematographer. If I have to spend 2 1/2 hours in this world, can they at least make it watchable?" ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 22, 2011
D 9% Saw 3D (2010) Clearly the Producers have no more ideas for this franchise. It's a good thing they are ending the way they wanted to. To bad its not an ending fans will enjoy or deserve. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 22, 2011
B 77% Thor (2011) This isn't SyFy Thor, it's HOLLYWOOD Thor! Crummy costume and set design is made up by being full of heart and soul. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 7, 2011
B- 60% Water for Elephants (2011) Witherspoon seemed way too old for Pattinson. Like a cougar ready to attack and Pattinson has the emotional range of a teaspoon. Movie is soggy but doesn't sink. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 24, 2011
D 59% Scream 4 (2011) Boring, derivative and killed its own gimmick within the first five minutes. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 16, 2011
C 89% Tangled (2010) Enjoyable movie but a little shallow and lifeless. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2011
C 27% Your Highness (2011) Fails to please as a comedy, but was fine as a low-budget adventure movie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 9, 2011
A 94% The Town (2010) The Town isn't original in any sense of the word, but Affleck does a marvelous job executing all of the pieces and is easily one of the best films of 2010. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2011
C 93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) The dialog seems like it was pulled from a magazine full of bad liberal clichés. It feels as if people who used to be progressives, but want people to think they still are wrote this movie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2011
B 56% Unknown (2011) Liam Neeson's late career conversion into a bad ass action hero continues. On it's face the premise sounded dumb, but the movie is much more nuanced than the trailer would lead you to believe. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2011
B- 43% The Green Hornet (2011) These are just two people who wanted to do cool stuff and had the money and talent (at least Kato did) to do it. It was nice watching a Comic Book movie where there wasn't much brooding or tales of woe involved. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 15, 2011
A 90% The Fighter (2010) I'm a sucker for a good sports movie, add Christin Bale in a Oscar worthy performance, Amy Adams and Mark Wahlberg and you can't go wrong. Great cast, good story makes it one of the year's best. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2010
A 51% Tron Legacy (2010) The "Youngification" of Jeff Bridges is downright creepy, but groundbreaking. Hedlund does a great job of being the emotional center of this movie. Great visuals are matched by a good story. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2010
D 20% The Tourist (2010) Boring, bland and self indulgent Vanity piece for Angelina Jolie. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 12, 2010
A- 49% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) If this truly is the last Narnia film, the series will end on a strong note. I'm not ashamed to say I cried like a baby at the end. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 11, 2010
C 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) David Yates hoodwinked us. He created a really strong, dark, road movie set against the backdrop of a holocaust, but fails to deliver a real Harry Potter movie. He completely sucked the magic out of this franchise. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 20, 2010
D 87% Unstoppable (2010) There may be a decent action movie in here somewhere but Unstoppable is stopped in its tracks by a horrible set up. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 13, 2010
F 9% My Soul to Take (2010) Yep, this movie is garbage. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 10, 2010
C 96% The Social Network (2010) What happens when a director and writer hate their subject? A well made, but one dimensional hit piece. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 2, 2010
B- 23% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) Would this movie have been made if not for the 3D Gimmick? Milla Jovovich commands the screen and makes all the RE films a fun ride. If you hate the series, this won't change your mind. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2010
B 73% Piranha 3-D (2010) Parents keep your annoying kids out of my R Rated Movies! Has a bit of build up but once the carnage finally hits, it's 20 - 30 minutes of absolute, beautiful, mayhem. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 21, 2010
C 81% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Has moments when it is laugh out loud funny and has some truly cool action scenes but it's overdone, over the top and they are so darn smug and self-aware about everything. Ultimately suffers from gimmick overload. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 13, 2010
B 68% The Runaways (2010) Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning are great together. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2010
B 46% Step Up 3 (2010) Best use of 3D I've seen all year. Doesn't set the world on fire and not genre defining, so if you don't like these types of films, this isn't going to change your mind. For the rest of us, it's a fun ride and truly a showcase for effective 3D use. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2010
B- 100% Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010) Quote not available. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2010
B 62% Salt (2010) Ok action movie that gets bogged down by a convoluted plot, but is elevated by Angelina Jolie's presence. ‐ Eclipse Magazine
