3/4 91% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) "A cross between François Truffaut's sometimes-harrowing dramas about childhood and a Steven Spielberg fantasy, Gondry's film abounds with sentiment - without falling prey to sentimentality. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted Jul 1, 2016
2/4 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "The violence is too tantalizing, too stylized, too fetishistic - the film features killers dressed in fanciful Halloween costumes who dance and sing as they dismember people. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

2.5/4 63% Therapy for a Vampire (Der Vampir auf der Couch) (2016) "Rühm has an ear for the absurd that reminds one of Monty Python. But his humor is as dry as they come - Therapy for a Vampire elicits ironic smiles, not belly laughs. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted May 19, 2016
63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "It touches on serious - and ridiculously complex - ideas but always cuts them down to manageable, middle-brow morsels. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted Apr 8, 2016
1.5/4 48% Hardcore Henry (2016) "For about 90 seconds, the novel first-person-shooter point of view hits our bodies with an unexpected flood of adrenaline, in a heart-pounding rush. Trouble is, the chemical high doesn't last. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
