Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 15% Sleepless (2017) Sleepless is a mindless, non-stop action film that's contrived, illogical and disappointing. Not only does it feel as if Foxx took on the role for a quick check, but it seems like everyone did the same. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jan 13, 2017
95% Fences (2016) Fences is a family melodrama that's well executed from start to finish. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Dec 1, 2016
95% Creed (2015) Stallone is not only giving his best performance to since Rocky, but Michael B. Jordan has fully established himself as a leading man to be reckoned with. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Nov 29, 2016
2/5 21% Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) Madea is still the same ole gun-toting big woman that hasn't lost her fanbase, but the while there are plenty of scenes that work, the longer the film plays, the barrel of laughs become empty. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Oct 23, 2016
1/4 3% Nina (2016) While Saldana gives her very best in trying to embody the essence of Miss Simone with equal support from co-star David Oyelowo, both are confined to a weak script and for Saldana, probably the worst makeup job she's had on the big screen. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 29, 2016
4/5 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) With Barbershop: The Next Cut, not only is this the best of the three, but it packs in plenty of drama and comedy to entertain and educate audiences across the board. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 20, 2016
2.5/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) One cannot walk away without noticing the plot holes that stops the film from being consistent. There are too many "Whats, Whys, and Hows'" being asked in one's mind that leaves them baffled. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 22, 2016
4/5 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) F. Gary Gary returns to the big screen with an invigorating, dynamic, no-holds-barred film led by five newcomers who embody the characters they are portraying with perfection. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Aug 17, 2015
2/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) If it weren't for its connection to Marvel through the comics, there wouldn't be an interest to keep this franchise from rising from the dead. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Aug 7, 2015
3/4 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Rogue Nation delivers first rate entertainment from beginning to end. Certainly a non-stop joyride that will continue the franchise should audiences choose to accept whimsical disbelief. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/4 85% Trainwreck (2015) The middle of the film tends to drag a bit, but with Schumer's winning personality along with the supporting cast's dry humor, this film leaves one bursting with laughs and entertained. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jul 18, 2015
3/4 94% Charlie's Country (2015) Gulpilil's magnificent performance showcases the struggles that has existed between two cultures on the same land in Australia. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 32% Entourage (2015) There are plenty of inside jokes that's amusing and the film moves at a good beat, so fans will enjoy it but others may wonder why they came if they hadn't seen the series. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Overall, the pitch isn't perfect, but through the dance numbers and some clever mash-ups, there's enough harmony and charm to leave one satisfied. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted May 15, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Brotherly Love (2015) This ensemble film brings in enough elements from comedy to drama that it becomes a moving, enjoyable treat highlighted by surprising performances. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 24, 2015
57% The Girl Is In Trouble (2015) Columbus Short and Alicja Bachleda are actually fun to watch in this lighthearted femme fatale wannabe film noir. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 10, 2015
4/5 79% Furious 7 (2015) While the story ran out of steam long ago, there's plenty of action and excitement that kept the engine going. Another fun ride and first rate entertainment. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 4, 2015
3.5/5 60% Run All Night (2015) This thriller may be paint-by-numbers with clichés all around, but no one is better at giving you pure enjoyment in this action genre at this time than Neeson. It's "Taken meets The Warriors." ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 13, 2015
1/5 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) While the original was clever and funny from start to finish, this painfully written sequel offers the exact opposite and takes away any charm audience were expecting. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Feb 20, 2015
1/4 51% The Interview (2014) The film feels like a Saturday Night Live sketch that went longer than it should with the writers having no where to go after the laugh meter reached it peak early. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Dec 26, 2014
5/5 86% Top Five (2014) Top Five is easily the "Avengers" of comedians where the laugh meter never drops from its highest point. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Dec 26, 2014
3/5 75% Camp X-Ray (2014) Despite the film being slowly paced with some flaws, its subject is worth telling and heightened by standout performances from Stewart and Payman Moaadi. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Oct 19, 2014
2/5 8% The Best Of Me (2014) The film is a huge letdown due to the script. The third act is so much a nonsensical head scratcher that it takes away the alluring romance fans wanted to walk away with. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Oct 19, 2014
2/5 8% Addicted (2014) While the leads are certainly attractive enough to bring the book to life, the film fails to live up to the melodrama and seductiveness that made the book popular. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Oct 10, 2014
3/4 60% The Equalizer (2014) Washington is the sell, no matter if this film is a retread from the fast-paced, high-octane action thriller genre . ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Sep 27, 2014
1/5 10% No Good Deed (2014) This slow burn violent thriller is too short (84 min) and predictable enough that the "twist" isn't anything worth talking about or mentioning it by the water cooler. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Sep 13, 2014
4/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a riveting, well-layered, intelligent and emotional film that will please fans and audiences looking for an evening's entertainment. Easily it's one of the best of the year, and not just a summer year. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jul 12, 2014
2/5 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) What attracted audiences to seeing a film about couples and their relationships with the first film may want to avoid a sequel that has less humor, romance and any substance. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 21, 2014
3/4 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) With a new title, some new faces and an insane amount of action, the story never runs out of steam; which is good enough for an evening's entertainment. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 13, 2014
3/4 81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are so captivating and genuine in their performances, they manage to make this intensely poignant film very moving, romantic and highly entertaining. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 7, 2014
4/5 91% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) With a reference to several films of the past, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt successfully make everything old, new again in the 'Edge of Tomorrow.' Throughout the film, the story never runs out of steam, which should please and entertain audiences. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
3/4 50% Maleficent (2014) With Angelina Jolie as a force of nature in this magnificent fantasy, Disney has another entertaining family friendly adventure on their hands. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jun 1, 2014
4/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Singer not only elevates the action to delight the fans and newcomers but he delivers a fast-paced emotional storyline that blends in all of the previous films without confusing anyone. Certainly a first rate entertainment among the Marvel films to date. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted May 23, 2014
2.5/4 14% Blended (2014) The jokes are not as funny as their previous films, but as the years go on, it's nice to see that these two can still provide a spark of romance that's appealing in a family film. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted May 23, 2014
3/4 74% Godzilla (2014) Nothing beats the 1954 version, but this film is good enough to side-by-side with it. It will make fans of the franchise proud. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted May 17, 2014
3/5 43% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) Where the first '300' was visually stunning, hypnotic, bloody, and yet enjoyable, this new take is only half of that; mainly brought on by the bravado performance of Eva Green. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 7, 2014
3/4 69% The Best Man Holiday (2013) Here's a film that delivers what the fans have been waiting for. You will laugh, you will cry, but you will be totally pleased by the end result. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Nov 17, 2013
2.5/4 48% Carrie (2013) While this updated remake may bring in a new audience, it offers little surprises, little effect, and pales in comparison to the original. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Oct 18, 2013
2/5 78% The Grandmaster (2013) An emotional moving, thrilling and provocative drama that's highly entertaining but at times loses itself with its lack of storytelling. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Aug 30, 2013
2.5/5 50% Blood (2013) While the performances are strong, especially from Graham and Strong, this cop drama is saddled with derivative plot points that maybe it would have been best if the writer added more complexity to avoid predictability. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Aug 10, 2013
3.5/4 94% Fruitvale Station (2013) 'Fruitvale Station,' is one the most endearing and profound films that echoes the essence of humanity. Ryan Coogler's feature debut gives Michael B. Jordan a career making performance. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jul 13, 2013
3/5 62% Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain (2013) 'Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain' is really a laugh out loud experience that one can enjoy and come back for repeat viewings. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Jul 7, 2013
4/5 69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) Not only is the film more action-packed, but the comedy, fight scenes and death-defying stunts are beyond your imagination. It's certainly a ride you don't want to stop or get off. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 68% Trance (2013) Boyle's films usually never run out of steam and while 'Trance' is at times moving, provocative, entertaining and presents an interesting conundrum, there aren't enough tracks to keep the film from maintaining a steady pace of clarity. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Apr 5, 2013
1/4 15% Temptation (2013) Not even the stunt casting of reality star Kim Kardashian can improve this bloated, soulless and unexciting novella. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 29, 2013
3/5 29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) With a new director and a brand new set of actors and characters, Retaliation delivers with a better storyline that brings back the essence of what true fans remember of the '80's cartoon and comics. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 22, 2013
3/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) A mashup of Die Hard, Air Force One, and possibly Under Siege, there's nothing in this film that we haven't seen before; but Gerard Butler makes the most in making this film a moving crowd-pleaser. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 22, 2013
2/5 44% The Call (2013) The culprit for the film's failure lies with the screenwriter, who couldn't finish a solid suspenseful thriller with chilling effects. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Mar 15, 2013
3/5 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) 'Creatures' offers an entertaining coming-of-age drama filled with romance and fantasy that should appeal to the 'Twilight' crowd. It's not as campy one might have expected. ‐ BlackFilm.com
Posted Feb 15, 2013
3/5 49% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' is the best of the series, despite the terrible CGI, mediocre dialogue and constant reminder of this is nothing but a love triangle between two guys and girl. ‐ BlackFilm.com
