2/5 50% Quitters (2016) "There is obvious talent in the storytelling but at times the reserved style of filmmaking feels televisual and there 's no spark to really get the film going. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
1/5 No Score Yet I Dream Too Much (1935) "I Dream Too Much means well but it can't move beyond its televisual a esthetic and a bland plot that doesn't really go anywhere. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 100% Manson Family Vacation (2016) "The film is gently funny, if a bit too slow, but the bizarro story line takes it to unexpected places and doing something different in the film industry right now is a much needed thing. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
1/5 30% Addicted To Fresno (2015) "Perhaps in other hands Fresno could have been a hilarious dark comedy , but instead Jamie Babbit and Karey Dornetto have made a chronically unfunny farce, harsh and offensive in its tone, inexcusably laughing at those who are worse off than themselves. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 48% Adult Beginners (2015) "It's not as sharp or witty as you'd expect from a Duplass Brothers product ion but Adult Beginners is still another decent outing in their ever-impressive canon. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet The Nymphets "Gary Gardner is able to build real tension, filming the actors up close and get right in the face of action. There's definitely enough here to be excited for more of his work in the future. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
4/5 82% Deep Web (2015) "Winter does a great job of delving into the underworld of the internet and the intricacies of the Silk Road case, it's just a shame it's not a more rounded view, as you can't help but feel there's another side to the case you're not being told about. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
5/5 64% 6 Years (2015) "Hannah Fidell has quickly become one of the faces to watch in independent film, her naturalistic style of filmmaking and ability to get the best of our her actors and shepherd improvised scenes creates characters and movies you want to root for. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2/5 49% Manglehorn (2015) "Manglehorn is an intriguing film, or at least it should have been. David Gordon Green's latest is unfortunatel y passive, there might be depths to explore on a second or third watch, but I struggled to make it through the first. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 30% Lost River (2015) "Lost River is a hugel y impressive debut, even if it is ultimately flawed. It feels like a first feature, and that's OK, and displays an art and eye from Gosling you might not have thought he possessed. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Bone in the Throat "Bone In The Throat isn't short on high-octane moments or a thrilling climax, but it is the tension of every one-to-one relationship that makes the film tick. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 62% The Little Death (2015) "The Little Death pushes the boundaries but isn't offensive, and at times the comedy really works. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2/5 70% The Final Girls (2015) "It hopes to riff off the classic era of slasher films, but unfortunately The Final Girls only ends up adding to the clichés. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
1/5 33% Entourage (2015) "This is a film that plays up to the vapidity of starry circles and embraces the characters' devil-may-care attitude as an irresponsible dream. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "It feels like Lionsgate are killing time rather than driving forward, so hopefully the long-term success of the franchise isn't harmed by a short-term money grab. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Apr 9, 2015
2/5 48% Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) "The feeling upon the closing credits is one of relief; with the plot nicely tied up, hopefully Shawn Levy gets the hint and finally moves on to try new things with his career. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Apr 9, 2015
3/5 79% Furious 7 (2015) "The action and chase sequences are visceral and triumphant but Furious 7 is undone by a misogynistic streak that runs all the way through the movie and director James Wan's relentless objectification of its female characters. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Apr 6, 2015
1/5 34% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "The film is persistently misogynistic and degrading towards women, racist at times, and Jennifer Aniston's character fantasying about two 14-year-old boys having sex is completely inappropriate. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 20, 2014
4/5 95% 20,000 Days on Earth (2014) "Co-directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard have put together an enigmatic piece. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 88% Gone Girl (2014) "Gone Girl is a dark and intelligent thriller that plays to Fincher's magnetising style, the two really are a match made in heaven. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/5 23% That Awkward Moment (2014) "From the outside That Awkward Moment looks like a typical, throwaway comedy but it has heart and an indie spirit that turn it into something altogether different, something that deserves to be seen. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 86% Chef (2014) "Chef is a funny and exciting road trip movie and, while not downgrading the success he's had with his two Iron Man films, is Favreau's best film for years. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/5 68% All The Wilderness (2015) "The opening ad closing 20 minutes prove difficult but what comes in between is exciting and unexpected, symbolising the excitement and difficulty of discovering who you are. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 86% The Mule (2014) "Sharply written with some great dialogue and a magnificent and captivating performance from lead Angus Sampson. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/5 50% Premature (2014) "It's a bizarre and surprisingly clever concept that really makes the most of it for a lot of laughs. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
1/5 39% Open Windows (2014) "With the film feeling so remarkably slapdash, it is a big step down Vigalondo's previous work, and a hugely disappointing English language debut. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
1/5 86% Fort Tilden (2015) "There are some similarities to the perpetual failings of the characters in Frances Ha, and this movie equally fails to charm. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/5 54% Pioneer (2014) "Though the stellar acting talent do much to bring this amazing true story to life, Pioneer struggles to ever leave you on the edge of your seat. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 100% Next Goal Wins (2014) "Next Goal Wins is a classic underdog story, but it is entirely original. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) "It seems like all the summ er blockbusters this year are coming in spring, but Days of Future Past will surely hold up as one of the year's best. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
5/5 98% Boyhood (2014) "A one-off masterpiece, the likes of which has never been done before, and will never be done again. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
2/5 56% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) "The film has lost its soul, its life sapped by the filmmaker's arduous style, and its a great disappointment because there are definitely still legs in the central idea. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Nov 7, 2014
2/5 76% Welcome To New York (2015) "As Ferrera runs out of reported events to hang his story on, he spirals out of control into a dull and obvious climax. " ‐ Fan The Fire

4/5 33% Before I Disappear (2014) "Before I Disappear shows a lot of promise for the cast and actor/writer/director Christensen. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Oct 24, 2014
1/5 28% Machete Kills (2013) "Guns and explosions aren't that exciting when the plot hasn't sucked you in, and lacking the imaginative, spunky spirit of the original, Machete Kills just feels so much more laboured. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
4/5 79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) "An honest tale of love and desperation from a couple making ends meet, Ain't Them Bodies Saints might just have been Lowery's audition for the big leagues. And he nailed it. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
1/5 46% Last Vegas (2013) "I will concede that there were 3 scenes which pulled something between a chortle and a guffaw from me, but by that time they came along, my face had already set into such a stony grimace that smiling genuinely hurt. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) "It would have been nice to have seen more of the rest of the cast, particularly the other members of the news team, but Ferrell does a great job of carrying what ends up being a fairly lengthy main narrative. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
4/5 73% Young & Beautiful (Jeune Et Jolie) (2014) "An engaging and well executed turn from the accomplished Ozon. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
2/5 50% Parkland (2013) "Ultimately Parkland is not thought-provoking, inspiring or even brave enough to be offensive, but it does raise some interesting scenarios and is full of some very solid acting. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
3/5 No Score Yet Family (2006) "It rattles along at a slick pace and the final sequence is everything you could want from a closing crescendo. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
2/5 35% The Counselor (2013) "You get the feeling that there's an extremely interesting story unfolding, but we're constantly on the periphery and there's not nearly enough substance to sink your teeth into. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
4/5 58% Dom Hemingway (2014) "There are moments of laugh out loud comedy mixed in with grim scenes of graphic violence, all punctuated by some of the most fantastically sweary tirades you're likely to hear this year. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
2/5 83% Prince Avalanche (2013) "Prince Avalanche is a slow burn and it does grow on you over time, but despite the central pair sharing undoubted chemistry, the movie's dialogue isn't as riveting as it needed to be and it inevitably feels a little flat. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jan 2, 2014
4/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) "Even if it's flawed by a few obvious clichés, Love Is All You Need still comes highly recommended. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jun 12, 2013
3/5 67% Spring Breakers (2013) "If you can look beyond Harmony Korine's misogynistic, uncomfortably leering view of the women in his film, there is some stuff to enjoy, though the film is held back by an unfortunate lack of substance. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jun 12, 2013
5/5 68% Trance (2013) "A complex, breakneck and stirring modern thriller, superb in both execution and conceptual ideas even if it is a little over-indulgent. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jun 12, 2013
3/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) "Jack The Giant Slayer is an entertaining family adventure, with moments of tension and humour in equal measure. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jun 12, 2013
2/5 19% Identity Thief (2013) "The natural charisma of the two leads is about the only thing that saves Identity Thief; it's a very generic, very lazy Hollywood comedy. " ‐ Fan The Fire
Posted Jun 12, 2013
2/5 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) "Hot properties John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) penned the script, and while it's another effort which lacks depth and real emotional involvement, they're certainly proving themselves as dependable, if not exceptional, talents.
