3/4 62% The Magnificent Seven (2016) "Even with its fair share of shortcomings the entertainment factor remains high enough throughout to make giving it a shot exceedingly worthwhile. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/4 75% Goat (2016) "A shocking descent into debauchery that's as gripping as it is disgusting, [with] Neel delivering a searing portrait of abuse I'm not sure I could have torn my eyes away from had I wanted to try. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/4 64% Storks (2016) "The fact the new animated comedy Storks is anything other than absurd is hardly shocking; that it's as supremely entertaining, as messy and as nonsensical as it ultimately might be, certainly is. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/4 36% Blair Witch (2016) "Even if the movie doesn't do anything new, it shows that when talented filmmakers pool their talents and give a project their all even the most tired of subjects and stylistic choices can suddenly feel fresh. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 15, 2016
2/4 62% Snowden (2016) "This movie is just rehashing the arguments that have already taken place, all of which results in a discussion I just didn't care to engage in. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 15, 2016
3/4 82% Sully (2016) "Clint Eastwood's latest outing is easily the most streamlined and economical motion picture of the acclaimed actor-turned-director's Oscar-winning career. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 9, 2016
2/4 39% Morgan (2016) "Even with the majority of the cast working at a relatively high level, the movie is never able to overcome its more obnoxious shortcomings. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3/4 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) "Fassbender is glorious, while Vikander is his equal. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3/4 41% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) "Aja, while not at the height of his powers, still does a marvelous job, managing to keep the melodramatic nature of the scenario from overwhelming things. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Sep 2, 2016
2/4 43% Hands of Stone (2016) "Unfortunately, Jakubowicz just doesn't seem to have the first clue as to how to give any of this the sort of emotional zip DurĂ¡n's story calls for. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 26, 2016
2/4 10% The Sea of Trees (2016) "The Sea of Trees does not work. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/4 92% Southside With You (2016) "People need to see Southside with You. It's a wonderful romance. Wistful, ebullient, full of energy and life, Tanne's movie crosses races and political boundaries. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/4 88% Don't Breathe (2016) "For Alvarez and Sayagues, the film is additional proof these are two guys who know their stuff, and watching them continue to work over the coming years is likely going to prove to be a real, delectably frightening treat indeed. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/4 73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) "It all allows the film to have an eerie, old school noir aesthetic that's reminiscent of Fritz Lang coupled with the psychologically destructive emotional pathos of Claude Chabrol. Yet Winocour manages to make things feel unique. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 25, 2016
2/4 20% Let's Be Evil (2016) "While I get the feeling Morris could be a terrific young talent worth keeping an eye on, she's practically the only reasons to care about anything that's happening here. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 25, 2016
2/4 29% Narcopolis (2015) "Narcopolis never rises above mediocre as far as story is concerned, building to a supposedly slam-bang stunner of a finish that's nowhere near as inspired as I think the director intends it to be. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2.5/4 62% Truth (2015) "Truth, as much as I agree with many of its contentions, fails to hold itself to the same level of scrutiny as it does those going after Mapes and Rather, and as such never feels as authentic as it should have. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2/4 35% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "A head-scratching disappointment that's as frustratingly unsatisfying as anything I've seen this year. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2.5/4 29% Burnt (2015) "It's all too familiar, too rudimentary, and while the kitchen they're working in is top-of-the-line the meal they ultimately prepare isn't that much better than a Denny's breakfast left under the heat lamps a few minutes too many. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2.5/4 79% Tales of Halloween "As anthologies go, this one is a heck of a lot of fun, even the misses having a spunky, go-for-broke attitude worthy of going a tiny bit crazy for. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2.5/4 45% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "I had trouble believing Landon and company were going to be able to pull this type of horror-comedy hybrid off. But they do, more or less, the strengths of the performances and the number of solid laughs winning me over. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3.5/4 94% Room (2015) "Room is a lithe, deeply moving wonder that builds to a miraculous coda. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2/4 65% Spectre (2015) "It is a tired retread that offers little new or original, taking 007 to the one place he's arguably never been before: irrelevance. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3.5/4 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "To paraphrase a speech made once upon a time in a pumpkin patch, there's no hypocrisy to be found in any of this, just sincerity, pretty much as far as the eye can see. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/4 69% Miss You Already (2015) "Barrymore and Collette bring their 'A' game, while Hardwicke's stewardship is gloriously strong. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/4 52% I Smile Back (2015) "I Smile Back might not rewrite the addiction or mental illness melodrama rule book but that doesn't make it less affecting, Silverman's spectacular performance alone making the price of a ticket well worth spending. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
4/4 96% Spotlight (2015) "Spotlight giving center stage to unsung warriors for truth who understood telling the story right, without embellishment, without melodramatic editorial excess, was the greatest victory of them all. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2/4 33% My All American (2015) "My All American means well, and as a film it isn't without merit; sadly there just isn't enough of it for this inspirational sports story to emerge victorious. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
2.5/4 44% The 33 (2015) "While the elements that do not work frustrate, the stuff revolving around those who truly deserve to be labeled as heroes thankfully never does. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/4 71% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) "By the time The Hallow builds to its breathtakingly personal climax, it's hard not to be impressed by what Hardy has accomplished. " ‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "Still a strong effort, and I respect the heck out of the filmmakers' collective efforts to maintain thematic fidelity to the overarching ideas Collins' novels deftly end up exploring. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/4 74% Trumbo (2015) "Trumbo is a solid effort made close to unmissable thanks in large part to Cranston's magnificence, the resulting biopic a gripping return to a Hollywood of yesteryear where the themes being examined couldn't be more appropriately timely. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 22, 2016

Posted Aug 19, 2016
2.5/4 34% By The Sea (2015) "Thankfully, Jolie Pitt the director is in much better form; and as ponderous, maybe even pretentious, as some of this might be, there was never a moment where I wanted to look away from the screen. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3.5/4 97% Brooklyn (2015) "Brooklyn is marvelous, watching it as close to pure bliss as any cinematic confectionary treat as I could possibly have imagined myself. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3/4 75% A Ballerina's Tale (2015) "George's ace in the hole is his subject herself. Copeland is captivating, oozing talent and charisma in equal parts. " ‐ MovieFreak.com

Posted Aug 18, 2016

Posted Aug 18, 2016
3/4 77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "The Good Dinosaur is a children's fable that is more than content to be exactly what it is and little more. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
2/4 29% Submerged (2015) "As good as the concept might be, as strong as Bennett (best known as the object of Lindsay Lohan's affections in Mean Girls) is as the psychologically scarred and physically injured hero, Milam's screenplay just never finds a comfortable groove. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
1/4 13% Asthma (2015) "Gus just isn't a guy I liked spending time with, watching him meander around gracelessly about as entertaining as having tiny hot needles poked into my eyes A Clockwork Orange-style. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3/4 65% Krampus (2015) "As Christmas miracles for horror fans go, this is one stocking stuffer certain to be enjoyed for many years to come. " ‐ MovieFreak.com

Posted Aug 18, 2016
2/4 61% Legend (2015) "Legend really does waste the majority of its potential, Helgeland never tapping into the story of the Kray brothers in a way that is essential or lasting. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
2.5/4 73% Youth (2015) "Youth has nothing new to say, its Italian thematic aesthetic nothing more than a mask for an emotional schadenfreude impossible to take pleasure in. " ‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 No Score Yet Carl(a) (2015) "Ultimately, Carl(a) wins me over for refusing to completely become a fairy tale, yet at the same time offering its main character some semblance of hope for future happiness. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3.5/4 80% Macbeth (2015) "It screws the viewer's courage to the sticking-place, forcing them to look into corners of themselves they would rather not peer. " ‐ MovieFreak.com
