Rating Title/Year Author
2.5 Insidious (2010) Kevin McCarthy The film delivers haunted house-type scares throughout but I just wish the second half was as good as the first. Wait for the flick to come out on DVD. EDIT

3/5 3 Ninjas (1992) Kevin McCarthy If you are under the age of ten, this movie was made for you. EDIT

4/5 Red (2010) Kevin McCarthy I literally shed a nerd tear because I could not handle the awesome nature of the action sequences in this film. Imagine the Ocean's films with machine guns. EDIT

3/5 Going the Distance (2010) Kevin McCarthy Long and Barrymore create very realistic chemistry in a film that pretty much nails what's it like to be in a long distance relationship. Though, Charlie Day steals the movie. EDIT

3/5 Dinner for Schmucks (2010) Kevin McCarthy The overall film is a mess but the performances from Jemaine Clement, Lucy Punch and Zack Galafianakis make the flick worth watching. Catch the matinee price. EDIT

3/5 17 Again (2009) Kevin McCarthy 17 Again is yet another teenage flick that is completely out of my demo and completely unoriginal but delivers great laughs and an overall fun experience. EDIT

4/5 State of Play (2009) Kevin McCarthy It was refreshing to see a well-done thriller with great performances and intriguing twists that keep you guessing throughout. EDIT

3.5/5 Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) Kevin McCarthy I may be putting my career on the line for this but this movie was enjoyable, well directed and well acted. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2009
2.5/6 Observe and Report (2009) Kevin McCarthy Observe and Report is one of those films that leaves you feeling confused about what you just watched. Luckily the last five minutes make up for the rest of the film. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2009
4/5 Adventureland (2009) Kevin McCarthy Adventureland is the perfect coming-of-age story with great performances and a beautifully written script. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2009
4/5 Fast & Furious (2009) Kevin McCarthy If you are a fan of the first film in the series and can forget about the two predecessors, then this is the sequel you have been waiting for. Vin Diesel is back! EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2009
2/5 The Haunting in Connecticut (2009) Kevin McCarthy Haunting in Connecticut made me feel like I was in a padded room. The main core was AWFUL but the two ends were actually pretty entertaining. Wait for the cable viewing. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2009
2/5 Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) Kevin McCarthy Monsters Vs. Aliens is visually pleasing but a sad attempt at entertaining kids. The film is riddled with tired jokes and wasted talent. Wait for the cable viewing. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2009
3/5 12 Rounds (2009) Kevin McCarthy 12 Rounds has some great action scenes and intensity but is killed by a horribly written script and ending. I would still recommend a rental. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2009
3.5/5 I Love You, Man (2009) Kevin McCarthy I Love You, Man has a great premise, enough laugh-out-loud jokes and plenty of awkwardness to warrant a viewing. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2009
3.5/5 Duplicity (2009) Kevin McCarthy Duplicity is another one of those flicks where everything is confusing until the very end but Gilroy does a great job building the chemistry between Roberts and Owen. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2009
1/5 Knowing (2009) Kevin McCarthy Knowing has a very gripping beginning and then just slowly lets the audience go until the film becomes a laughable cliché. One of the worst of the year so far! EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2009
3/5 Miss March (2009) Kevin McCarthy Every once in a while a movie comes around that most critics hate and I love. Well here is a movie that I thought was completely hilarious. EDIT
Posted Mar 13, 2009
1/5 Race to Witch Mountain (2009) Kevin McCarthy As much I disliked Disney's excuse to make more money, I now know that Nationwide is on my side. The product placement is atrocious. EDIT
Posted Mar 13, 2009
3.5/5 The Last House on the Left (2009) Kevin McCarthy This flick is one of the most disturbing, brutal and hard-to-watch movies I have seen. It is definitely on par with the original! EDIT
Posted Mar 13, 2009
5/5 Watchmen (2009) Kevin McCarthy The flick is brutal, beautiful, thought provoking, phenomenal, genius, violent, sexual, brilliant and just overall completely mind blowing. Alan Moore would even like it! EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2009
3.5/5 Two Lovers (2008) Kevin McCarthy If the hype is true and this is really Phoenix's last role, he chose a relatively heavy and awkward film to go out on. The acting was superb and the flick felt very realistic. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2009
0/5 Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009) Kevin McCarthy As a fan of the video game series, I can honestly say that this is hands down one of the worst films I have ever seen. Chris Klein is so bad that he made the movie a comedy. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2009
4/5 The International (2009) Kevin McCarthy The International is one of the better films of 2009 so far and contains an action scene that is worth the price of admission. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2009
2/5 Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009) Kevin McCarthy The flick might deliver some good laughs and decent performances, but the script had some of the more forced and unrealistic dialogue I have seen in a long time. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2009
1.5/5 Friday the 13th (2009) Kevin McCarthy Maybe I am just desensitized, but this movie should have been a lot scarier, a lot more brutal and not the same old slasher movie we have seen a billion times. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2009
3.5/5 Coraline (2009) Kevin McCarthy Coraline succeeds more so visually than it does in terms of plot and dialogue. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2009
4/5 He's Just Not That Into You (2009) Kevin McCarthy Anyone who has been in a relationship can appreciate a film like this because it just exposes the guts and glory of it all. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2009
3.5/5 Push (2009) Kevin McCarthy With mediocre expectations going in, the flick's cleverness, great score and wicked fight scenes lead me to recommend this to anyone looking for a good time. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2009
0.5/5 The Pink Panther 2 (2009) Kevin McCarthy This movie is so bad that I feel awful taking up Rotten Tomatoes' space with this quote. I will stop now. What a waste of great talent! EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2009
2.5/5 New in Town (2009) Kevin McCarthy New in Town is a fun little flick that delivers a decent message and makes me want to visit Minnesota. It is the perfect rental. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2009
3/5 The Uninvited (2009) Kevin McCarthy Shockingly, the movie was a half-way decent horror flick with a great ending you will not see coming. I wouldn't waste your money in the theatres but it's a great rental. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2009
4.5/5 Taken (2008) Kevin McCarthy If they had an Oscar for kicking butt, Liam Neeson would win it. I feel like I just left the gym. See this flick in theatres! EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2009
3/5 Inkheart (2009) Kevin McCarthy Even though Brendan Fraser might be one of the worst actors out there, his co-stars and a clever script keep this movie alive and entertaining. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2009
2/5 Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) Kevin McCarthy The first two in the series were visually pleasing action films but this prequel suffers from bad special effects and awkwardness. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2009
4/5 My Bloody Valentine (2009) Kevin McCarthy Right now with ticket prices sky rocketing, why not see a flick that will keep you cringing and practically feels like an amusement park ride. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2009
3.5/5 Last Chance Harvey (2008) Kevin McCarthy Even though I couldn't separate Dustin Hoffman from the Harvey character, it is still a perfect little flick that makes you smile when you leave. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2009
2/5 Hotel for Dogs (2009) Kevin McCarthy You can predict the end of the film in the first five minutes but I will say that the dogs and the gadgets were pretty fun to watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3/5 Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) Kevin McCarthy Paul Blart: Mall Cop is a perfect display of clichés and predictability but I couldn't help but laugh at Kevin James riding the scooter and his addiction to pixie sticks. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3.5/5 Notorious (2009) Kevin McCarthy I can honestly see people hating this film but for fans of Biggie's music like myself, the film is a great memorial to one of the best rappers ever. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3/5 Che: Part One (2008) Kevin McCarthy The flick is over four hours long and almost feels like you are watching trees grow. What makes it tolerable is Del Toro's dead on performance of an international icon. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3/5 Bride Wars (2009) Kevin McCarthy Not knowing what to expect, the battle between Hudson and Hatheway was fun to watch but I would not waste money to see it in theatres. Wait for the rental! EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2009
2.5/5 The Unborn (2009) Kevin McCarthy I had nightmares about the trailers, which is unfortunate, because of a lot of films' best scenes are contained there. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2009
4/5 The Wrestler (2008) Kevin McCarthy The Wrestler is Aronofsky taking a step back and giving you a full on actor driven flick that will make you cringe and weep and contains the year's best acting performance. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2008
4/5 Gran Torino (2008) Kevin McCarthy Anytime Clint Eastwood is drinking a beer, growling and killing people, I am in. Eastwood directs a subtle film which will make you laugh awkwardly and keeps perfect intensity. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2008
4/5 Marley & Me (2008) Kevin McCarthy While the movie was fun and entertaining, don't believe the advertisements because the film may have one of the most emotional endings I have ever seen. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2008
3/5 Valkyrie (2008) Kevin McCarthy With a movie that had so much potential, Singer delivers high intensity and action but lacks emotional connection to the characters! EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2008
5/5 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) Kevin McCarthy I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the best flicks to come out in years. It is perfect in every aspect of filmmaking, i.e. acting, directing, pacing, editing, make-up, set design, special effects. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2008
3/5 The Tale of Despereaux (2008) Kevin McCarthy This is a kid's flick that is extremely dark, contains very little humor and actually plays off as a well written drama that just happens to be animated. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2008
4.5/5 Seven Pounds (2008) Kevin McCarthy Please stay away from the plot line of this film and go into it with an open mind. You will be pleasantly and emotionally surprised. EDIT
