Posted Apr 22, 2016
2/4 68% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "A ponderous, overwrought meditation on grief, loss, guilt, and memory that prods and probes its characters more like lab rats than living, breathing creations. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Apr 22, 2016

1.5/4 49% 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

Posted Feb 11, 2016
86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "It's easy to mistake the simplicity of plot and theme here for simple-mindedness - this isn't Pynchon or Proust. Kung Fu Panda 3 has the economy of a Zen koan, not to mention its inner harmony and wisdom. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

80% Killing Fields: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "This is the kind of story that builds over time, so it's difficult to tell - Discovery made only one episode available - whether the rest of the series will stay as compelling as the pilot. But it's a doozy of an episode. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted Nov 17, 2015
46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The writers fill Chicago Med with just enough character work to make the players interesting. So what if they lift every hospital drama cliche, from '60s classic Dr. Kildare to ER and Chicago Hope? " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
