Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 87% Frankenweenie (2012) Gorgeously animated and playful in its love of classic monsters, Burton's very personal little dog movie has plenty of charm to overcome its faults.‐ Film School Rejects

C 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) It is much bigger. But it's also much colder, much more dour and emptier as it plods its way through a flurry of chaos and silliness.‐ Film School Rejects

75% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) Delivered with infectious energy, Part of Me gives us moments of note mixed in with a gorgeous, immersive concert experience.‐ Film School Rejects

78% Brave (2012) With an incredible attention to the little things, Brave is not just Pixar's first Disney movie, but simply another great Pixar movie.‐ Film School Rejects

No Score Yet El Infierno (2010) The film flips quickly from funny and slow to extreme violence, but in the end it's plenty entertaining.‐ Film School Rejects

85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) An expertly crafted explosion of good old fashioned hand-to-hand-to-machete-to-fist-to-head-to-wall brilliance. A milestone for action cinema.‐ Film School Rejects

67% God Bless America (2012) Darkly comedic, subversive, rage-filled and infinitely charming. I haven't quite laughed this hard since Bobcat Goldthwait's last movie, World's Greatest Dad.‐ Film School Rejects

No Score Yet Just Like Being There (2013) Anyone who has ever bought a poster at a rock show or a wonderful screen-printed movie poster is going to love the intimate portrait of those behind the art they love.‐ Film School Rejects

B- 59% Real Steel (2011) Kudos to Shawn Levy, he's made a movie many of us didn't expect - the personification of what a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots movie should be.‐ Film School Rejects

D 27% Colombiana (2011) Columbiana is stupid, listless and too shy to be any fun. When you fail to make a well-armed, underwear-clad Zoe Saldana interesting, it seems almost intentional.‐ Film School Rejects

A 80% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Guided by the steadiest hand Joe Johnston has shown in years, Captain America explodes into the action movie you've been waiting all summer to see.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2011
B- 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) It's got problems, but when it comes to delivering jaw-dropping, massive spectacle, we're again reminded that no one can do Transformers quite like Michael Bay.‐ Film School Rejects

C 26% Green Lantern (2011) Lantern dazzles with some ambitious visuals and a wicked cool mythology, but fails to overcome its fear that is audience is stupid.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2011
B- 72% Rio (2011) Using all the vibrant colors and lively music of Brazil, Rio dances its way toward becoming Blue Sky's best effort to date. It may be but a kids' movie, but it's a fun ride.‐ Film School Rejects

83% The Imperialists Are Still Alive! (2011) If it accomplishes one thing, it is that Durra shows herself to be an exciting young director. She has a sense of style and a sense of character. And her film has a lot of character because of it.‐ Film School Rejects

40% HappyThankYouMorePlease (2011) As it is in any breakout comedy, it is performance that matters. Radnor is charming, while Kate Mara is red hot sexy and in no way the manic pixie dream girl.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2011
B 13% Yogi Bear (2010) Yogi Bear is a good-hearted, delightful story that captures the spirit of its original, leaving its audience smiling (and possibly hungry).‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2010
C+ 51% Tron Legacy (2010) Stunning visuals, excellent use of 3D and all the digitized cool you can cram into one film. And that Daft Punk score, oh that Daft Punk score.‐ Film School Rejects

A 87% Black Swan (2010) Visually stunning and brutal, Black Swan gives us the great cinematic monster that we never saw coming: Natalie Portman in a pink tutu. Just remember to breathe.‐ Film School Rejects

43% Barry Munday (2010) It trades schmaltz for honesty and receives heaps of laughs as its reward.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2010
81% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) One of the most completely entertaining films of the summer.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2010
C 41% The Expendables (2010) When The Expendables revs up and becomes the loud, explosive machismo parade that it's meant to be, it works. But when it doesn't, it's rather abysmal.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2010
C+ 64% Predators (2010) A fun call-back to its gruesome predecessor. What it lacks in machismo, it certainly makes up for with atmosphere.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2010
A 92% Children of Men (2006) A special film by a gifted filmmaker.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
B- 76% Superman Returns (2006) One of this summer's best action movies.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
A 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) The message is clear and the animation creates a world unlike any other in film, making A Scanner Darkly an easy addition to the must-see list of 2006.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
B- 71% Invincible (2006) Mark Whalberg is surprisingly good, delivering a likeness to the real Vince Papale that is uncanny.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
A+ 60% 300 (2007) Awesome!‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
A 75% Over the Hedge (2006) Adventure, cute and cuddly animals, and some wit make for a wonderful experience!‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
A- 76% Rocky Balboa (2006) Stallone still has what it takes to make Rocky the peoples champ, and while the film is by no means a knockout, it will certainly be right there 'til the final round.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
C+ 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) Eclipse breaks the mold at the hands of a craftsman. It becomes something new, something oddly watchable, at times enjoyable and surprisingly unlike what has come before.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2010
F 6% The Last Airbender (2010) The most well-rounded failure of the year so far.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2010
C+ 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) the film's joyous embrace of the gaudy computerized action earns it the tag of fun, but not to be taken seriously.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 27, 2010
D+ 43% Robin Hood (2010) An extravagantly hollow experience that feels disconnected from the original character, and can't survive the ferocious scowl of Russell Crowe.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 14, 2010
B 72% Iron Man 2 (2010) Despite some imperfections, this film accelerates well into a spectacular final act, once again proving Iron Man invincible.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted May 7, 2010
15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) Haley's Krueger doesn't just look like a deeply unhinged burn victim out for gruesome revenge, he is a complete embodiment of evil. And it's terrifying.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2010
F 8% Furry Vengeance (2010) Brendan Fraser should know better. Then again, his career choices continue to insist that he doesn't.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2010
A+ 91% Hot Fuzz (2007) From paying homage to Michael Bay's camera motions to kicking an old lady square in the kisser, this film holds nothing back and fires away with tons of laughs.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2010
76% Kick-Ass (2010) It is violent, it is vulgar and the story is off-the-walls at times. But in the end, Kick-Ass is a relentlessly fun, irreverent film that doesn't even care to take names.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2010
B- 41% Death at a Funeral (2010) By holding tight to the story of the original, it delivers laughs and is held up on the shoulders of a great performance from James Marsden.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2010
A 83% Avatar (2009) A spectacular visual experience unlike anything you've seen before.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
C- 28% The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) Poorly structured, poorly paced, poorly executed CGI in places and characters that are unlikeable, despite the fact that we should be rooting for them. An inaccessible mess.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
B- 73% Banlieue 13 - Ultimatum (District 13: Ultimatum) (2009) Adrenaline-filled, high-flying and brutal. A truly impressive action film that will hit you in the chest with awesome.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
84% Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2011) Take note, those of you in Hollywood making awful satire. There is a right way to send up a genre, and this is it.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
87% Buried (2010) Make no mistake, you can make a movie about one character inside a box interesting for 94 minutes.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
62% Howl (2010) A complex, multi-layered commentary on art and what it means to different people.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
80% Cyrus (2010) The best we've seen from Jonah Hill and yet another in the long line of wonderful performances from John C. Reilly.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2010
68% The Runaways (2010) What begins as a sexually charged, energetic rock love story featuring two actresses pouring their souls into two iconic characters grinds to a halt beyond act one.‐ Film School Rejects
