3/4 75% Keanu (2016) "Part of the reason why it works so well is that you gradually realize there's something far more substantive going on, and that makes the bits that work hit even harder. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 29, 2016
50% Dolemite (1975) "For whatever it lacks formally, Dolemite is a fun, fascinating piece of cultural history. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 27, 2016
2/4 16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "As with many prequels, it exists largely because a Hollywood studio wants a franchise, not because someone had a great story that they were passionate about telling. The movie sadly feels too much like the "product" it is. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 24, 2016
3/4 61% Holidays (2016) "Holidays has one story that's a dud, two that are okay but would have been better longer, and five that are solid. That's more than enough for a recommendation. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3.5/4 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Sharp, funny, and infectiously nostalgic. Everybody Wants Some!! is filled with moments where you relate to the youthful, carefree spirit Linklater so carefully evokes. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 20, 2016
3.5/4 44% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) "TCM 2 works because it's a complete original. You never know from minute to minute where it's going to go, and that unpredictability keeps you riveted for every single second. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2/4 23% Fatal Beauty (1987) "Never quite hits the sweet spot in balancing action and humor. The film clunkily moves back and forth between them, rather than getting them to work in unison. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2/4 31% Criminal (2016) "Criminal is intermittently entertaining, but when you squander a cast like this and a cool sci-fi premise, intermittent entertainment equals overall disappointment. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 15, 2016
3/4 77% 13 Cameras (2016) "13 Cameras is the kind of thing that messes with your mind and starts to do some damage. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 14, 2016
No Score Yet The Syndrome (2016) "It's pretty clear that the film's arguments against Shaken Baby Syndrome are highly questionable. Once you start peeling back the layers, they begin to unravel. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 13, 2016
3/4 No Score Yet Justice League vs. Teen Titans (2016) "If you want to see DC superheroes taking each other on, this is a far more entertaining option than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 12, 2016
3/4 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) "This gloriously goofy little film lets you be the central figure in a rollicking adventure full of danger, mayhem, and carnage. Pop some Dramamine and go for one heck of a wild ride. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 8, 2016
2/4 No Score Yet Temps (2016) " If you're of a certain age, it may speak to you. If you're beyond that age, it'll most likely seem innocuous, but also very, very obvious. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 6, 2016
3/4 70% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) "A sophisticated and scary horror picture with way above-average effects. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 5, 2016
3/4 81% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) "There is a lot of laughter and a lot of pathos in Hello, My Name Is Doris. Sally Field delivers one of the finest performances of her career. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 2, 2016
1.5/4 10% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) "This is a movie custom made for people who became outraged when Starbucks made their Christmas coffee cups red. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Apr 1, 2016
2/4 46% Pandemic (2016) "The first-person action scenes are a lot of fun, but everything else is so routine by this point that you may find yourself mentally going on autopilot whenever someone isn't fighting off hordes of infected. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3.5/4 68% Darling (2016) "Armed with a pitch-black sense of humor, a confidently-executed nightmarish style, and a dazzling turn from Lauren Ashley Carter, the movie works its way into your psyche and gradually frays your nerves. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 29, 2016
2/4 9% Point Break (2015) " If you like to see people pushing themselves to the physical brink, parts of the movie will absolutely hold your attention. If only the plot was that compelling. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 29, 2016
1/4 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "One of the worst superhero movies ever made. It is worse than Batman & Robin. It is worse than Catwoman. It is worse than last summer's Fantastic Four. A lugubrious experience that squanders every ounce of promise. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 25, 2016
31% The Trip (1967) "It's not conventionally a good movie; there's little plot to speak of, and 83 minutes of psychedelia becomes a touch repetitive. However, it's still a captivating curio. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 21, 2016
3/4 75% All The Time In The World "Keeps you watching and wondering, while simultaneously challenging your own viewpoint on life in the modern day. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 20, 2016
3/4 48% Miracles from Heaven (2016) "If you want a meaningful Christian message, you'll absolutely find one. If that's not your cup of tea, you can still enjoy a really amazing feel-good story. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 18, 2016
3/4 54% The Program (2016) "While perhaps not as deep as it could have been, the movie is nonetheless a compelling examination of an unrepentant cheater. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 17, 2016
4/4 96% Krisha (2016) "Krisha is bold and powerful. This Great American Indie will knock you on your ass in the best possible way. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 15, 2016
2.5/4 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "The Brothers Grimsby needed more structure to achieve its full potential. That makes it a mixed bag. But boy, are there ever some amazing moments here. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 11, 2016
3/4 89% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Everything about 10 Cloverfield Lane is wildly effective, except for the part that actually connects it to Cloverfield. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 11, 2016
No Score Yet Psycho-Pass: The Movie (Gekijouban Psycho-Pass) (2016) "Stimulating and thoughtful, if occasionally a bit confusing, this is a worthy piece of animated fare for adults. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 9, 2016
1/4 0% Speed Zone (1989) "A choppy, inconsistent film that often feels assembled from the deleted scenes of other movies. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 7, 2016
4/4 98% Zootopia (2016) "Zootopia is to 2016 what Inside Out was to 2015 - a next-level animated feature that gives kids something of substance while simultaneously showing them a really good time. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 4, 2016
2.5/4 24% Camino (2016) "Zoe Bell deserves her own Kill Bill, her own Die Hard. Camino is basically an above-average Steven Seagal flick with a much more appealing lead. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 3, 2016
3/4 80% Road Games (2016) "Fueled by strong performances and some genuinely riveting twists and turns, it's a solid genre film that delivers the goods in a largely fresh way. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Mar 2, 2016
1/4 60% Jack of the Red Hearts (2015) "A dull, predictable melodrama that only pretends to be about autism. " ‐ Film Racket
Posted Feb 27, 2016
1.5/4 15% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) "A pale imitation of the masterpiece that spawned it. Whereas the original had a freshness and a beauty that made it accessible to martial arts fans and non-fans alike, the sequel will leave even the faithful unimpressed. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 27, 2016
3/4 79% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Entertaining and heart-warming, if not entirely original. It's the cinematic equivalent of one of those inspirational posters featuring kittens and sayings about how you should 'hang in there.' " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2.5/5 17% A Country Called Home (2016) "Lacks the clear vision to know how to distinguish itself from a hundred other similar movies. " ‐ Film Racket
Posted Feb 25, 2016
3.5/4 93% The Last Man On The Moon (2016) "Spellbinding! A vital, wondrous piece of history is beautifully preserved. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 24, 2016
3.5/4 90% The Witch (2016) "One of the more notable horror films of the last few years. The Witch holds you in its grasp with a chilling exploration of how evil chooses some people to be its victims and others to do its bidding. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 19, 2016
3/4 68% Snowtime! (2016) "Snowtime! explains the topic of war in a "safe" manner that tempers things with a healthy dose of fun and laughter. It's like a really good Newberry Medal-winning book. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3.5/5 43% Forsaken (2016) "A passable Western entertainment, thanks to the actors and some good technical qualities, including production design and cinematography " ‐ Film Racket
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3/4 83% Deadpool (2016) "Despite some notable flaws, Deadpool is just what superhero cinema needs. It's a shot of adrenaline directly into the Marvel nervous system. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/4 24% Zoolander 2 (2016) "Zoolander 2 will probably disappoint people looking for a carbon copy of the original, but its refusal to be one is probably its best quality. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/4 96% Nina Forever (2016) "Nina Forever would be funny if it wasn't so disturbing, and it would be disturbing if it wasn't so funny. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 10, 2016
2.5 77% Where to Invade Next (2016) "There are sections of Where to Invade Next that are important to see. As a whole, though, it doesn't represent Michael Moore at the top of his game. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 9, 2016
1.5/4 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is one of the best adaptations I've ever seen. It perfectly captures the unrelenting awfulness of the book it's based on. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 6, 2016
3.5/4 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "An old Hollywood tale as only the Coen Brothers could tell it. If you love movies from the '40s and '50s, you'll see affection buried within the often uproarious parody of the on- and off-screen cinematic world at that time. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 5, 2016
3/4 No Score Yet Batman: Bad Blood (2016) "So much is made of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but what DC is doing with these animated features is much more organic. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Feb 3, 2016
3/4 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "Whereas other pictures of this type tend to focus on the thrills, this one focuses on the idea that lives are at stake. The Finest Hours' appreciation of the "leave no man behind" ethic is refreshing. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Jan 29, 2016
0.5/4 10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) " I'm not saying Dirty Grandpa is terrible, but I fully expect a terrorist organization to claim responsibility for it any minute now. " ‐ Aisle Seat
Posted Jan 22, 2016
3/4 93% The Lady In The Van (2015) "The performances and thematic elements are more than sufficient to make The Lady in the Van a treat. " ‐ Aisle Seat
