Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) The work of a man who needs to do everything in excess - lengthy battles, an absurd amount of low angle shots, painfully blatant product placement, pyrotechnics overload and well over two hours of CGI porn. ‐
Posted Jun 27, 2014
4.5/5 95% Snowpiercer (2014) An unprecedented combination of stunning combat, stylistic eccentricities and dramatic poignancy that is so rich and enthralling, there's no way one viewing will ever be enough. ‐
Posted Jun 27, 2014
4/5 88% Coherence (2014) There's more suspense in this low budget dialogue-driven sci-fi thriller than many effect-heavy, $100 million+ blockbuster wannabes. ‐
Posted Jun 24, 2014
4/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) It's kind of like going to a pet store and being swarmed by puppies; you won't want to leave and when you have to, you'll want to take them all home with you. ‐
Posted Jun 13, 2014
4.5/5 81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) It isn't just about letting you have a good cry; it's about inspiring you to appreciate the good in life while you do it. ‐
Posted Jun 6, 2014
2.5/5 91% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) Vicious aliens, wicked combat and Tom Cruise charm are all good fun, but what's the point when the story makes no sense? ‐
Posted Jun 6, 2014
1.5/5 50% Maleficent (2014) When you've got a talented visual effects artist at the helm, iconic source material, an all-star cast and a hefty studio-sized budget to back it all up, there's just no excuse to deliver such a lazy film. ‐
Posted May 30, 2014
2.5/5 100% Frequencies (2014) A fascinating combination of science and romance, and particularly when the balance is in the romance's favor. ‐
Posted May 28, 2014
2.5/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Sentinels, good, bad, future, past, who cares? This movie needs more Quicksilver! ‐
Posted May 23, 2014
4/5 74% Godzilla (2014) It's a little light on fully realized human characters, but what does that matter when you've got a 350-foot monster with an astonishing amount of fight and resolve to root for? ‐
Posted May 14, 2014
4/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) The combination of spectacular stunts and characters with honest human qualities, makes 'The Winter Solider' more than a thrill, but also a story you can believe in. ‐
Posted Apr 2, 2014
3.5/5 76% Noah (2014) The performances are engaging, the visuals are stunning, and they're both featured within the context of an enthralling narrative, but by going so big, certain lapses were inevitable. ‐
Posted Mar 27, 2014
63% 13 Sins (2014) The logic behind the whole operation isn't entirely sound, but Webber's performance is so engaging and Stamm has such a firm handle on every other element of this production that those flimsy narrative elements rarely pulls you out of the experience. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Mar 19, 2014
4/5 41% Divergent (2014) It's finally time for 'The Hunger Games' to make some room because the quality of 'Divergent' justifies all of the hype and gives the film a solid shot at becoming a successful franchise-starter, too. ‐
Posted Mar 18, 2014
3/5 66% Bad Words (2014) Bad Words is highly entertaining, but it's often hard to enjoy because the tone makes it so difficult to separate reality from fiction. There's still loads of fun to be had; you just have to make an effort to push your morals aside to access it. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 11, 2014
1.5/5 27% Pompeii (2014) If you were hoping 'Pompeii' would ditch the lava in exchange for nonsensical political and romantic melodrama, Paul W.S. Anderson's latest is for you - and probably only you. ‐
Posted Feb 21, 2014
1/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) It's not a true story nor a love story, but rather, the comedy of the year. ‐
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 12% Vampire Academy (2014) It doesn't build its world as deftly as 'Hunger Games' and can't compete with 'Mean Girls'' smart wit, but 'Vampire Academy' does manage to find a place for itself as a silly yet enjoyable variant. ‐
Posted Feb 7, 2014
4.5/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) Everything is awesome! Really. ‐
Posted Feb 6, 2014
2.5/5 56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) This could have been a thoughtful, fresh thrill, but in order for that to have happened, we'd need a compelling mystery that we could be part of, not one that we could watch Jack solve himself. ‐
Posted Jan 15, 2014
3/5 39% Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) It isn't half as scary as three of its four predecessors, but its strong characters and clever story layers do prove the mythology is worth expanding. ‐
Posted Jan 3, 2014
4.5/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Gary Ross did the hype justice by kicking off the series with a highly effective adaptation and now Francis Lawrence builds upon that success by taking the budget boost and funneling it into top talent, stunning visuals and an all-consuming experience. ‐
Posted Dec 31, 2013
4.5/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) It lets you relish in unparalleled no holds barred debauchery while increasingly disillusioning the fun and games with the nasty reality of the situation along the way. ‐
Posted Dec 30, 2013
5/5 95% Her (2013) I wouldn't mind living in Spike Jonez's version of the future, but for now I'm happy to just keep watching 'Her' over and over again. ‐
Posted Dec 29, 2013
1.5/5 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) Despite stunning visuals, a satisfying score, and three all-in lead performances, "Out of the Furnace" is still bleak, lifeless and excruciatingly slow. ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2013
2.5/5 41% Oldboy (2013) Despite striking visuals and Josh Brolin's all-in performance, the new 'Oldboy' fails to build a riveting, believable mystery strong enough to support its big twist. ‐
Posted Nov 27, 2013
4.5/5 89% Frozen (2013) There's no way you're walking out of 'Frozen' without a pep in your step, massive smile on your face and the desire to build a snowman. ‐
Posted Nov 26, 2013
4/5 66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) Easily one of Marvel's most entertaining films. It's got action, adventure, heart and some of the best superhero movie comedy. There are logic issues, but the film is such a joy and thrill that the pleasure of the illusion leaves no room for misgivings. ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2013
4/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) It celebrates love and life in one sequence and takes it all away in the next, only to come back around to give your heart yet another bruising, but it always does so with purpose, making the film a well-earned flood of emotion. ‐
Posted Nov 4, 2013
4/5 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) It's loaded with quality work, but it's Matthew McConaughey's performance that elevates those elements to make the film an exceptional experience. ‐
Posted Nov 4, 2013
4/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) Gavin Hood's film is like a CliffsNotes version of a book that still reads well. ‐
Posted Nov 1, 2013
4.5/5 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) It's impossible to call '12 Years a Slave' an enjoyable film, but it is exceptional in every respect, making it a warranted 133-minute nightmare. ‐
Posted Oct 18, 2013
4/5 91% Nebraska (2013) All the hijinks and misunderstandings are rooted in the woes and/or promise of the family's past, present, and future, making the film an especially thoughtful bittersweet comedy. ‐
Posted Oct 9, 2013
3/5 94% All Is Lost (2013) Watching a man try to survive a mid-sea disaster is compelling, but watching a man try to survive a mid-sea disaster in an effort to live for something would have been exponentially more compelling. ‐
Posted Oct 9, 2013
7/10 36% Ghost Team One (2013) Rather than going straight for the laughs and only the laughs, Ghost Team One delivers two well developed, likable characters that turn the film into an effective narrative capable of sustaining the best and worst of its comedic repertoire. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 8, 2013
5/10 53% Haunter (2013) Haunter is a step down for director Vincenzo Natali, but yet another step up for Abigail Breslin, who continues to prove herself as a leading lady. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 7, 2013
4.5/5 96% Gravity (2013) You may never get to fly off to space, but 'Gravity' is the next best thing. ‐
Posted Sep 30, 2013
4.5/5 69% About Time (2013) Time travel functions as a highly entertaining and amusing component, but it's also embedded in a barrage of tremendously honest and relatable drama that makes the film a deeply affecting experience, worth taking with you well after the credits roll. ‐
Posted Sep 30, 2013
2.5/5 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) It features a remarkable lead performance and impassioned journey, but the character's destructive habits and off-putting attitude can make the experience deflating and unfulfilling. ‐
Posted Sep 30, 2013
4.5/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) The ultimate true tragedy-to-film adaptation. Rather than ride the "wow, this really happened" wave to an explosive finish, Greengrass' representation is so absorbing in and of itself, you won't have an ounce of energy left for that until well after. ‐
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3.5/5 81% Don Jon (2013) Joseph Gordon-Levitt's highly stylized and well-executed directorial choices make 'Don Jon' a raunchy romp, but then he throws in just enough of that good old JGL charm to give it some heart. ‐
Posted Sep 27, 2013
2/5 13% The Secret Lives Of Dorks (2013) It tries to be satirical and plausible and fails at both, but it does manage to conjure up just enough heart to keep the experience from being a total grating loss. ‐
Posted Sep 24, 2013
3.5/5 81% Prisoners (2013) It's missing some pivotal story details, but has an abundance of stellar assets that add up to a highly successful nightmarish experience. ‐
Posted Sep 20, 2013
3/5 39% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Talented filmmakers manage to elevate the uneven narrative and produce an entertaining experience, but 'Chapter 2' is nowhere near as refined as the original. ‐
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3.5/5 71% I Declare War (2013) With so much straightforward supernatural and/or dystopian teen violence, this is a welcomed and highly effective experiment in juggling preadolescent imagination and very real, adult life lessons. ‐
Posted Aug 30, 2013
2/5 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' might reduce plans for the sequel to ashes. ‐
Posted Aug 24, 2013
3/5 31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) It rocks more than enough polished and highly engaging sequences to entice you to overlook it's minor identity crisis. ‐
Posted Aug 21, 2013
5/5 99% Short Term 12 (2013) It's infinitely dynamic, making it one of the most moving, harrowing, heartwarming, and satisfying films of the year. ‐
Posted Aug 21, 2013
3/5 27% Jobs (2013) It's an entirely wooden and bland representation of the tech icon, but for Apple devotees, it'll still have an appeal as an informative biopic. ‐
Posted Aug 16, 2013
3.5/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) The plot isn't particularly sound and some jokes fall flat, but the appeal of watching this 'family' come together is so enjoyable and satisfying, it makes the film a worthy watch. ‐
