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

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

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

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

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

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

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

Inside Out (2015)

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

In Bruges (2008)

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

The Dark Knight (2008)

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Witching and Bitching (2014)

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

Machete Kills (2013)

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

The Smurfs 2 (2013)

Pacific Rim (2013)

Promised Land (2013)

Frankenweenie (2012)

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
