Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

"Viewed as the explosion-a-minute, simple action film that it's intended to be, Captain America delivers on what it needs to do: introduce the character to mainstream audiences while not offending longtime fans, and prime the public for The Avengers." IFC.com

Riddick (2013)

"The back-to-basics approach works for Riddick, even if it does follow a familiar blueprint." ‐Metroland
Posted Feb 16, 2014

World War Z (2013)

"World War Z offers a strong case that a bigger focus can indeed be better when it comes to the living dead." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jun 13, 2013

Man of Steel (2013)

"If the intent of 1978′s Superman: The Movie was to make audiences believe a man can fly, then Man Of Steel would have you believe a superhero can sulk - and punch things while doing so." ‐Digital Trends

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

"Star Trek Into Darkness does a nice job of providing all the excitement and explosive moments one expects from a blockbuster of this sort, but it might try a little too hard to hit the obligatory beats for fans of the franchise." IFC.com
Posted May 16, 2013

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"Iron Man 3 defies typical third-chapter drop-off and makes it clear that the franchise is in good hands with its new director." IFC.com
Posted May 2, 2013

On the Road (2012)

"Salles makes a strong case for On the Road as one of the best adaptations of Kerouac's work to date, managing to tell a story that's both faithful to the source material and well aware of the elements that make the story timeless." ‐Metroland

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a genuinely fun, popcorn adventure that leaves you looking forward to the next installment instead of wondering if the franchise is worth saving." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Mar 22, 2013

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"Imagine Die Hard playing out in the White House, and you're on the right track." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Mar 22, 2013

Admission (2013)

"It's not often a film comes along that's just as much fun to watch with your parents as it is to watch with your partner or friends, but Admission is just that sort of film." IFC.com
Posted Mar 22, 2013

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

"Sam Raimi does a nice job of positioning Oz the Great and Powerful as a bridge to L. Frank Baum's world for younger audiences, hinting at what came before and teasing future adventures lying just ahead on the yellow-brick road." IFC.com
Posted Mar 8, 2013

Snitch (2013)

"Dwayne Johnson ventures further outside the straight-up action genre with a tense thriller that proves he he doesn't need to punch, shoot, or body-slam anyone to carry a movie." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Feb 22, 2013

A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)

"The latest chapter of John McClane's continuing adventures raises the bar for what its hero can accomplish without becoming an outright parody of itself." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Feb 14, 2013

Warm Bodies (2013)

"Just when you thought the zombie genre had shambled off into the sunset bereft of any fresh ideas, a movie like Warm Bodies comes along and makes the undead seem, well... very much alive." IFC.com
Posted Jan 31, 2013

John Dies at the End (2013)

"Only time will tell if John Dies At The End will achieve as similar a level of under-the-radar success as Coscarelli's Bubba Ho-Tep, but it's easy to believe the film is well on its way to becoming a cult classic." IFC.com
Posted Jan 28, 2013

Jack Reacher (2012)

"In the end, it's easy to believe that the only mystery Jack Reacher can't solve is the question of where his movie went so very, very wrong." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Dec 21, 2012

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

"Peter Jackson seems keenly aware of the differences between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and instead of trying to make one more like the other, he embraces what makes each story unique." IFC.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012

Lincoln (2012)

"Let's just dispense with all of the usual deliberation and give Lincoln star Daniel Day-Lewis the Oscar now. " ‐Digital Trends
Posted Nov 9, 2012

Dredd (2012)

"Dredd 3D is the movie the character has always deserved, and proves that you don't need the intimidating budget and star-power of a Hollywood tentpole film to bring a character like Judge Dredd to life on the big screen." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Sep 21, 2012

Robot & Frank (2012)

"It's a science-fiction story that does without the typical sci-fi tropes-and that's just part of the magic in this clever, compelling film." ‐Metroland
Posted Sep 14, 2012

Premium Rush (2012)

"Premium Rush does an admirable job of not only taking you inside the bike messengers' world, but making convincing heroes out of them, too." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Aug 23, 2012

Total Recall (2012)

"Does Total Recall succeed as a movie? Sure. But unfortunately, the movie never quite succeeds as Total Recall." IFC.com
Posted Aug 2, 2012

Man on a Ledge (2012)

"A heist film that never quite lives up to its compelling premise." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

The Woman in Black (2012)

"The film rarely tests the boundaries that Hammer Films were famous for stretching and keeps the scares relatively tame and for the most part, bloodless." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

John Carter (2012)

"The good far outweighs the bad with John Carter, and leaves you hoping for a return to Barsoom in the future." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

Mirror Mirror (2012)

"A surprisingly good, fun film that makes great use of Singh's talents and offers a much more enjoyable experience than the trailers for the film suggest." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

Lockout (2012)

"Lockout ultimately amounts to a series of bad imitations of good films." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

Safe (2012)

"Jason Statham is still one of the most entertaining action heroes on the big screen, and when he inevitably puts up his fists, it's always a show worth watching." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

The Dictator (2012)

"The Dictator mines its comedy from the film's talented cast instead of people he pranks, and it feels like a very different film than what we've come to expect from Cohen." ‐Digital Trends
Posted Jul 25, 2012

Prometheus (2012)

"An excellent film, but not quite the genre-redefining, mind-blowing, life-changing experience much of the hype suggests." Newsarama
Posted Jul 25, 2012

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

"A funny, scary, and cheer-worthy adventure that somehow manages to make the 16th President of the United States a bad-ass action hero." ‐Movies.com
Posted Jul 25, 2012

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

"In his last adventure under Christopher Nolan's guidance, the Dark Knight never quite rises to the occasion." IFC.com
Posted Jul 25, 2012

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

"The Amazing Spider-Man is a balanced mix of bright and dark, fun and angsty, fast-moving and deliberately ponderous -- just like its hero." IFC.com
Posted Jun 27, 2012

Marvel's The Avengers (2012)

"The Avengers greatest accomplishment could be this: its ability to make an entire audience feel like children reading their favorite comic for the very first time." IFC.com
