Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) All in fun, the clatter and concussion of action tropes as syncopated as the dialogue.‐ 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

3/5 73% My Amityville Horror (2013) Not so much an "untold story" of the Amityville case as a psychological study of a troubled man.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) The sound design of the movie is oppressive beyond belief -- this damn thing is louder than "Pacific Rim."‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 69% The Wolverine (2013) All that money, all those CGI techs working into the night, and it doesn't pack a fraction of the impact of a wooden-sword battle between two men in the comic.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 75% You're Next (2013) Flirts with being a meta-horror movie, which can be a way of making a routine slasher flick while making fun of routine slasher flicks.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 89% The World's End (2013) A full package of entertainment.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 No Score Yet Cold Blooded (2012) Appealingly minimalist and sharing some DNA with the early work of John Carpenter.‐ eFilmCritic.com
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
5/5 96% Gravity (2013) A work of techno-art, with images of humbling grandeur and scenes almost painful in the depth of horror they evoke.‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 28% Machete Kills (2013) Danny Trejo is as far from stale whitebread as you can get. He's the real deal.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) McQueen approaches the narrative straight on and sober, with long, long takes bearing the weight of cruelty.‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) The great thing about Dallas Buyers Club is that it proves someone can be kind of an ass and also a great man.‐ eFilmCritic.com

3/5 19% Ride Along (2014) The movie isn't loose enough to let Kevin Hart run wild with sustained riffs; he's trapped inside the stodgy, stifling structure. ‐ eFilmCritic.com

5/5 35% The Counselor (2013) The movie is full of odd one-on-one conversations that may exasperate those who want the film to get to the point, but the dialogue is the point. ‐ eFilmCritic.com

4/5 14% Dracula 3D (2013) Argento hasn't been this playful in years, and neither has "Dracula."‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 23% The Canyons (2013) Very little animating emotion to explain why the film had to be made, why the story needed to be told.‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 41% Divergent (2014) It's really just an elaborate metaphor for Being Your Own Beautiful Self, which apparently goes over well with readers of a certain tender age.‐ eFilmCritic.com

Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2015
2/5 12% Vampire Academy (2014) It's too transparently a ploy to hook teenage girls by combining vampires, Hogwarts, and princesses, three things that teenage girls presumably adore.‐ eFilmCritic.com

2/5 43% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) Tries hard to follow in Snyder's footsteps - plenty of speed-ramping slow-mo action - but it just comes across as an imitator.‐ eFilmCritic.com
