2.5/4 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "If that's what you're looking for -- basically a shoot 'em up set amongst the stars -- then it's fun and fits the bill. But true Star Trek fans will not really be satisfied, as the higher, thought provoking ideas are missing. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jul 22, 2016
2/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "Pets is basically a by the numbers, pretty predictable, perfunctory movie that will appeal to kids aged eight to twelve. However, adults will be pretty much left out in the cold. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jul 15, 2016
2/4 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "The fault lies not with the new cast; it's the lackluster script and the mediocre movie that they're saddled with. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jul 15, 2016
1.5/4 73% The BFG (2016) "The two-hour running time drags as this Spielberg misfire winds up being uninspiring and tedious. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jul 1, 2016
2/4 55% Man of Steel (2013) "It's bland and boring. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 20, 2016
3/4 29% Warcraft (2016) "It is not in the same league as Toy Story 3, Up or Ratatouille, but it is still a worthwhile effort, worthy of bearing the Pixar name, and an admirable sequel to its predecessor. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 17, 2016
1.5/4 62% Frozen (2010) "Overall, it's a one note premise, where the characters, stuck up on a lift, have nowhere to go and quite fittingly the movie in turn, goes nowhere. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 14, 2016
2.5/4 86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "What Abrams has given us is the gravy without the meat and potatoes. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 14, 2016
3/4 89% The Witness (2016) "It's a fascinating documentary that debunks the myth as it tries to separate fact from fiction and in the process offers up an eye opening history lesson. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 10, 2016
2/4 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "It is a smart idea and it is ambitious. It is just too bad that it wasn't funnier. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jun 3, 2016
3/4 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Fassbender, Lawrence and McAvoy class up the proceedings, and along with a cast of younger mutants and a surprise cameo, make it a lot of fun. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted May 27, 2016
2.5/4 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "Overall, Neighbors 2 is not as good as the original, but fans of the first film will still find enough humor here to make it worth a look. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted May 20, 2016
2.5/4 77% Elstree 1976 (2016) "It wears out its welcome after about an hour. It also raises a few questions that are left unanswered. But there's still enough here to make it worth a look for fans. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted May 6, 2016
3.5/4 79% The Family Fang (2016) "Kidman gives one of her best performances in years. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Apr 29, 2016
4/4 94% The Jungle Book (2016) "What director Jon Favreau has done here is dazzling and spectacular. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Apr 22, 2016
3.5/4 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "If you look past the laughs, partying and hijinks, you will see that Linklater is going for something more; a philosophy of being in the present and not trying too hard to figure out your entire life when you are only 18. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Apr 1, 2016
2/4 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "The movie does have a few brief, bright spots, and the actual 20-minute battle between Batman and Superman offers some enjoyment. But overall, this film should have been way more satisfying. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Mar 25, 2016
2/4 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "It can be uplifting for kids and teens, telling them to follow their dreams and never give up. The fact that it is based on a true story makes that message stronger, even though the movie Rudy did it much better and with more heart. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3.5/4 91% Birdman (2014) "The entire cast is first rate, but Keaton's performance is one to relish and might just put him back on top. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 16, 2016
3/4 84% Deadpool (2016) "There are dozens of entertaining pop culture references, and even the opening credits have a self-mocking tone. It starts off flat, but then, about 20 minutes in, takes off. The end result is surprising and a lot of fun. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 12, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Hail, Caesar! is a bit disjointed and the story fall apart by the end, but who cares? It is an often-hilarious valentine to movie making in another era, and a good one at that. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 5, 2016
3/4 71% A Perfect Day (2016) "By focusing on a small story, the sarcastically titled A Perfect Day becomes more relatable and in the process tells us more about the big picture, in this case the Bosnian conflict. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/4 42% Moonwalkers (2016) "The whole thing has a retro swinging 60s vibe that I enjoyed. The actors all commit to both the lunacy on screen and its premise, and the result is a good natured and entertaining film. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 1, 2016
1.5/4 82% The Revenant (2015) "Is it realistic? Sure. But does that make it something you want to see? I say no. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 1, 2016
1.5/4 30% Mojave (2016) "Isaac elevates the proceedings and I did enjoy his performance in a movie where there is little else to recommend. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/4 61% Joy (2015) "This is not David O. Russell's finest work. It's no American Hustle or The Fighter. But it's still a solid effort worth seeing. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3.5/4 87% Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon (2015) "Filled with incisive interviews... director Douglas Tirola does an admirable job of telling the Lampoon's story and offering up an inside look at how it launched huge careers and went on to change the face of contemporary comedy. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2.5/4 46% Boychoir (2015) "Director Francois Girard, who has made several other musically themed films, including "The Red Violin," has made a predictable movie here, with a by-the-numbers storyline. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
1.5/4 17% The Gunman (2015) "They [the actors] are all defeated by a movie that ultimately has little to say, offers up no thrills and, at a bit under two hours, seemed a lot longer. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 60% Run All Night (2015) "The movie is predictable and obvious, and it also feels a bit long, but who cares? It is a fun action flick with Neeson, doing what he does best these days - yielding satisfying results. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2/4 56% Focus (2015) "The first half of the film... is somewhat entertaining, and some of the comedic dialogue in that section also periodically hits. It is the second half of the film, set three years later in Buenos Aires, where things fall very flat. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2.5/4 48% Cake (2015) "Writer Patrick Tobin and director Daniel Barnz have a made a movie that, despite the clich├ęd template, manages to hold your interest. The main reason for that are the fine performances, mainly by Aniston who pilots this thing. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3.5/4 48% The D Train (2015) "Overall, The D Train is a wacky, welcome and very funny surprise. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
1.5/4 19% Aloha (2015) "Crowe, a former journalist for Rolling Stone, does know music, and the soundtrack is good. The on location Hawaiian settings are also nice to look at. However, there is little else here worth recommending. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 46% Ted 2 (2015) "If you liked the first Ted, you're going to really enjoy Ted 2. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2.5/4 52% Boulevard (2015) "It reminded me of how just good this Oscar winning actor could be when he shed himself, on screen, of his unique comedic gifts. He is certainly missed. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 44% Irrational Man (2015) "There are some funny one liners, the plot, although derivative, will have you engaged from start to finish and overall it's an enjoyable ride. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
1.5/4 65% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "This is not worth full price at the box office on any level. I can make a slight case to see it when it comes out on On Demand, but it won't be a strong one. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
1/4 26% Vacation (2015) "As far as Helms and Applegate, they seem to be straining with the mediocre material and the harder they work, the more forced and desperate the entire movie seems. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2/4 88% The Big Short (2015) "Maybe if this was balanced with a personal story that one of the characters was going through, I would have taken the spoon-fed lesson. But we know the outcome in advance. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3.5/4 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The action scenes are excellent, the special effects are superb and there's good doses of humor, suspense and drama all along the way. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 17, 2015
2.5/4 77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "Overall, it's alright. I do recommend it for children, but there's no real humor in it, and I've just come to expect more from the folks at Pixar. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/4 97% Brooklyn (2015) "Simply put, I loved this movie. I can't wait to see it again, and it's easily one of my favorite films of the year. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Nov 20, 2015
2/4 94% Carol (2015) "I did like the performances, even though Blanchett was a bit stagey. However, with this paper thin storyline that is overly drawn out, I did not care about the fate of the two main characters and the whole thing left me emotionally cold. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Nov 20, 2015
4/4 96% Spotlight (2015) "A brilliant, absorbing film. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Nov 13, 2015

Posted Oct 23, 2015
3/4 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "It's the engaging acting and expert direction that manages to rise well above any of the script's deficiencies. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Oct 16, 2015
4/4 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) "It's an ingenuous screenplay that's marvelously executed by Singer, whose return to the series is more than welcome. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3.5/4 86% Steve Jobs (2015) "It is an interesting film for people who have seen many of the other movies and TV specials about Jobs. This one is a different take and a very worthwhile and interesting one at that. " ‐ NY1-TV
Posted Oct 9, 2015
93% Skyfall (2012) "It's not really what I want from a 007 film. It has its moments, some of the action scenes are well-shot, and it's not as bad as the last entry, Quantum Of Solace. But it's no Casino Royale. " ‐ NY1-TV
