97% Logan (2017) What Deadpool awakened in audiences a year ago, this thirst for blood, can be credited as paving the way for Logan, which picks up the cause of violence and accelerates it considerably.‐ Film School Rejects

No Score Yet Headshot (2017) If you're a fan of The Raid and its sequel, Headshot is going to give you a lot of the same vibes.‐ Film School Rejects

97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) A multi-layered, lovingly crafted work of art that is the work of a studio that continues to push the envelope of not just stop-motion animation, but innovative storytelling and world-building.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2016
97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It's a classic reluctant camaraderie story with emotion that sways like trees in a gentle breeze between sad, bittersweet, and rambunctious adventure.‐ Film School Rejects

84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) A combination of smarts and sparks make Beyond a brisk, exciting ride with a classically Star Trek positivity.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2016
26% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad is likely to be good enough for some, but it's by no measure good. It's a smattering of recognizable faces and costumes in an otherwise incoherent, listless story.‐ Film School Rejects

48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Bryan Singer proves that he no longer has any interesting X-Men stories to tell.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 9, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is basically a dumpster fire. But from that rubble, there is something salvageable.‐ Film School Rejects

B+ 79% Furious 7 (2015) Heavy-hearted, lead footed and energetic as hell, this James Wan directed joint fits right into the franchise.‐ Film School Rejects

60% Dare (2009) It is so fresh and fun.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2015
B+ 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) It is the very in your face style of action that was hinted at in Casino Royale, but has come full circle here in the second film delivering an experience unlike anything we've seen from this franchise in a long time, if ever.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2015
B+ 84% The Walk (2015) It's exhausting, but also quite a profound journey.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2015
A 77% People Places Things (2015) To say that People, Places, Things is a lovely experience makes it sound less challenging than it is. It provides a range of emotion, all of which it earns.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2015
A 98% Inside Out (2015) It's a brisk and effortlessly charming affair that explores some of our most basic human emotions and how they work together to make us whole people.‐ Film School Rejects

D+ 46% Ted 2 (2015) ...a soon-to-be-forgotten movie that had a few very funny moments.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2015
B 83% Cinderella (2015) No matter how cynical you might be -- hardened by the current climate of remakes, reboots and incessant sequels -- it's impossible to avoid getting caught up in the magic of a little Bippidy-boppidy-boo.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2015
A 95% Star Trek (2009) This version is new and fresh, but it doesn't forget its roots -- and I think fans will appreciate that.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2015
B+ No Score Yet Don't Let Me Drown (2009) The film takes a while to really get going, but once it does get up to speed it really shines.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2015
A+ 92% Slumdog Millionaire (2008) [A] deliriously entertaining, unforgettable film.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2015
C+ 86% Chef (2014) It's incredibly sweet, but still perplexing with its dashes of bitter.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
A- 84% In Bruges (2008) In the end, the only problem I see with In Bruges is that it will be a tough film to market to a mainstream audience.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2014
A 90% Coraline (2009) A film so delightfully creative, vibrant and yes, a little dark that it once again proves that Mr. Selick is a rare creature in the world of filmmaking, that rare kind of filmmaker whose creativity and vision knows no bounds.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2014
71% Interstellar (2014) Interstellar is escapism in its purist form.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2014
A 85% John Wick (2014) John Wick also sports an interesting premise and a surprisingly sharp bit of world-building not normally seen in your average shoot 'em up.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2014
A+ 94% The Dark Knight (2008) The Dark Knight is a rarity in Hollywood -- a truly earnest adaptation that in many ways exceeds even the brilliance of the work upon which it is based.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2014
C 43% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) Like many sequels we see these days, it's a lot of the same only bigger and louder.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2014
D 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Seemingly written by a thirteen-year old boy and directed by his walking erection, this one is nothing but a booming pile of rubble.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2014
B- 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) As with much of Singer's filmography, the intrigue of the idea ultimately overshadows the execution.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2014
B 85% Witching and Bitching (2014) Full of weird and wonderful insanity, Witching and Bitching is the kind of wild ride you don't look away from. The insanity is magnetic.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2014
A- 95% Mary and Max (2009) Unapologetically bleak and delivered with dashes of sweetness and sharp wit, Mary and Max deserves notice for being such an unexpected change of pace.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 30, 2014
C+ 92% Sugar (2008) The problem is that it is incredibly tedious and at some point very uneventful.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 9, 2014
C 46% Rio 2 (2014) Rio 2 feels less like a new adventure and a lot like an excuse to do more of the same.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) It's one hell of a proper action thriller. A full-speed man-on-the-run story with layers of intrigue and violent stakes.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2014
C- 10% The Nut Job (2014) Weird as it may be with its dancing Korean pop star and all of its "nuts" wordplay, The Nut Job isn't a tough one to crack. Like most actual nuts, it's pretty bland.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2014
D 28% Machete Kills (2013) A movie so lumbering and unnecessarily stupid that it has rid this reviewer of the desire to see Rodriguez continue the Machete saga.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2013
D 25% Planes (2013) This is the laziest brand of kid's film: the kind created by a bunch of marketing executives in a 90th floor boardroom. For shame, John Lasseter.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2013
C+ 13% The Smurfs 2 (2013) For movies that don't aspire to the pedigree of age-spanning animated tales, it's harmless and above-average.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2013
B 52% The To Do List (2013) It's refreshing to see a movie aspire to a little more than just raiding the cliche bin.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2013
B 69% The Wolverine (2013) After the outright creative failure that was the last Wolverine movie, this kind of Adamantium-solid effort is something to be appreciated by fans.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2013
A 71% Pacific Rim (2013) Del Toro brings no pretense to Pacific Rim. He's simply making the most massive, relentlessly cool movie he can make until a studio accountant brings him to a full-stop.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2013
B 51% Promised Land (2013) Promised Land is one of those rare "message movies" that first tells us a great story with great performances, then alerts us to its message.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2012
D 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Jackson has come back to Middle Earth to compose his most masturbatory effort yet.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2012
A 94% The History Of Future Folk (2013) The film's charm, as you might imagine, is derived from the innocent joy that music brings to our main characters.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2012
A 44% Black Out (2014) An Energetic, Twisted, Colorful and Wickedly Violent Ride.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2012
A 78% Dredd (2012) A killer take on the character, full of great 3D and slow-motion effects that enhance a stellar performance from Karl Urban.‐ Film School Rejects
