Posted Sep 28, 2012
The Master (2012) Ron Henriques The Master is a film very focused on the human condition, but it isn't for everyone. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2012
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) Ron Henriques Just as the series starts to get smart, it fumbles and gets clumsy, like a zombie. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2012

Posted Sep 16, 2012
Dredd (2012) Ron Henriques Smarter than any comic book film this year. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2012
C A Thousand Words (2012) Ron Henriques This feels more like a missed opportunity than a complete waste of time. Murphy isn't on his A-game here, but I felt more of an effort coming from his performance than in recent years. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2012
B+ John Carter (2012) Ron Henriques Yes, it's a grand and epic science-fiction tale, but it also wisely takes the "less is more" approach, leaving you with the healthy desire for more. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2012
B- Act of Valor (2012) Ron Henriques The film is an engaging visual and visceral experience, yet despite the "realism" that McCoy and Waugh are going for it suffers from the weak story structure and performances of your typical Hollywood action movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 23, 2012
C Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) Ron Henriques ...a miss, but not a complete one. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2012
C+ This Means War (2012) Ron Henriques The comedic pursuit of Witherspoon by the two leads is where the film works, with many of the shoot-outs and action sequences falling rather flat. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2012
C+ Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) Ron Henriques I'm not the target audience this film was made for...Kids will not doubt find this to be a more engaging and humorous outing than the original EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2012
D+ Underworld: Awakening (2012) Ron Henriques There are audiences who just want to see violence and action and Underworld: Awakening provides that, but it's more of the same. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2012
C- Contraband (2012) Ron Henriques I've seen better direction from a traffic cop. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2012
C- The Devil Inside (2012) Ron Henriques Though the film has intriguing elements, it ultimately collapses from the weight of its own ambitions EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2012
C The Darkest Hour (2011) Ron Henriques Feels like a cross between "Skyline", the "Terminator" films and that old Catherine Mary Stewart flick "Night of the Comet". EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2011
A- Carnage (2011) Ron Henriques Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2011
C Tower Heist (2011) Ron Henriques I still like Ratner, I still like his movies, it's just that this one feels like a missed opportunity. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2011
B- A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) Ron Henriques You wanna bring your own bud to the party, that's up to you, but these comedies are an attempt to put you in the mindset of it's characters without having to inhale EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2011
B- Puss in Boots (2011) Ron Henriques Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2011
B The Rum Diary (2011) Ron Henriques Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2011
B+ The Skin I Live In (2011) Ron Henriques Almodovar is an entertainer first and foremost and despite the film's difficulties you still can't take your eyes off the screen. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2011
B+ Real Steel (2011) Ron Henriques At the heart of the picture is some rather engaging work from Jackman and young Dakota Goyo who plays his young son and nearly steals the picture from him. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2011
B- Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) Ron Henriques In an entertaining fashion (Joost and Schulman) play with their audience who they have the foresight to see are already becoming jaded. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2011
D The Three Musketeers (2011) Ron Henriques The impressive visuals do prevent me from dubbing this the worst film of the year, but ultimately even they can't save the mess this is. EDIT
