3/5 94% Carol (2015) I value Haynes as an artist, but his art isn't revelatory or emotional; it signifies feelings rather than sharing them.‐ eFilmCritic.com

1/5 69% The Danish Girl (2015) Being cisgender doesn't disqualify you from making a movie about transgender subjects, but maybe being incompetent should.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) Decently, it focuses on the victims, and why there continued to be victims for so long.‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 81% The Revenant (2015) It's probably time to admit that Iñárritu has a loud voice but not much to say with it.‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) It's enjoyable in the moment but leaves us little to chew on, to dream on.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 68% Scrooged (1988) Murray, it's clear today, was the perfect Scrooge of the '80s. ‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 No Score Yet Twice Upon a Time (1983) Animation fans, and admirers of pure cinema in general, owe it to themselves to see this at least once.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2015
4/5 67% À Meia-Noite Levarei Sua Alma (At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul) (1964) It's a lot of fun, but it's also a serious document of its time and place, a Brazil gripped with fear of God and ghosts.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 96% Island of Lost Souls (1933) There's something legitimately sick and cold about it, a chill sweat of jungle malaria.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 83% Bill Cosby: Himself (1982) "Too much of the film is Cosby passing judgment, as if comedy weren't good enough anymore; he also has to tell us a thing or two."‐ eFilmCritic.com

Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2015
5/5 100% The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith (1978) The movie is gorgeous pure filmmaking even when we wince at the violence - and we do, because Schepisi doesn't present it as cathartic or exciting.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2015
5/5 100% Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970) Like the best fairy tales, "Valerie" is voluptuously suggestive, a bit dangerous, and perfectly legible on its own subterranean terms.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 92% A Face in the Crowd (1957) Griffith's hungry, lunging performance is a shock and a revelation to anyone who knows him primarily from The Andy Griffith Show or, God knows, Matlock.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 100% The Third Man (1949) Welles was a still-ridiculously young 34 when he played Harry, but he was probably born sounding 56...‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) A lot of footage of Gerard Butler skulking around dark hallways and neutralizing terrorists.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) Luhrmann is quite content to stay on the surface, to rub elbows with tuxedoed gents and bewitching flappers.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 11% After Earth (2013) It's not Shyamalan's fault -- he did his best with what he was given. He deserves another shot.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
1/5 67% World War Z (2013) The action is unscannable spinach, the characters are dull, and the climax is the very pinnacle of anti-climax.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
3/5 83% This Is the End (2013) The movie's very self-amusement makes it go down easy.‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 71% Pacific Rim (2013) Del Toro lives and breathes this stuff like mythopoetic oxygen. ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
1/5 38% The Purge (2013) There might be true satire here, but it would take a far less bored reviewer than me to pick away at the flab surrounding the satire.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
5/5 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) All in fun, the clatter and concussion of action tropes as syncopated as the dialogue.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
2/5 61% Evil Dead (2013) If you wondered what the "Evil Dead" movies might be like without the central wit and charisma of Bruce Campbell, the answer now awaits you.‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 46% To The Wonder (2013) Your response to all this depends extremely heavily on how much philosophizing and pretty pictures you're willing to accept in lieu of a story.‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 64% Antiviral (2013) Antiviral is what happens when you make a movie around a fleetingly interesting idea but forget to find a story in it.‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 94% Room 237 (2013) "The Shining" is the perfect launching pad for a movie about obsessive film theorists because Kubrick attracts theories like lint and this film is perhaps his most stubbornly mystifying work.‐ eFilmCritic.com
