F Aloha (2015) Danny Minton Sadly, San Andreas is not the only disaster movie hitting theaters this weekend. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2015
A- Interstellar (2014) Danny Minton Interstellar is one of the most ambitious films in this genre that I've ever experienced. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2014
F Heaven Is for Real (2014) Danny Minton While watching, I couldn't help but think of the studio execs in the background whispering in the filmmakers ears "does it have to be so religious? Can you make it any less... Christian?" EDIT

A Saving Mr. Banks (2013) Danny Minton I can't think of a better holiday film that you'll be able to enjoy with your families. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2013
A- This Is the End (2013) Danny Minton I love a movie where it feels as if you just worked out your abs because you laughed so hard. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2013
C The Hangover Part III (2013) Danny Minton Overall, the movie suffers from a lack of inspiration. The desire to produce a sequel overrode the need to create another legendary film. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2013
A- Admission (2013) Danny Minton ...the ending result is much better than I thought it was capable of being. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2013
A Zero Dark Thirty (2012) Danny Minton ...even if this is a completely fictional account, it seems true and our need to fill in the gaps will cause what I think will be a massive audience to see this much anticipated film. EDIT

A- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Danny Minton I found myself concentrating more on the strange look of the film and less on the film itself. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2012
A Lincoln (2012) Danny Minton The events of the tale might be 150 years old, but they couldn't be more relevant to today's political climate. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2012
C Lawless (2012) Danny Minton Gary Oldman is the only actor who really knocks it out. Unfortunately he's only in the film for a few minutes. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2012
A- The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) Danny Minton As long as the film is well-written, well-acted and well-executed, then bring it on. After all, I've read hundreds of his stories in comics growing up. If the films are at least this good - I'll watch hundreds also. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2012
B Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) Danny Minton The 3D in this film is spectacular. It adds such an incredible element to the movie that I will go as far as to say the film shouldn't be seen in 2D. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2012
C+ Brave (2012) Danny Minton While the visual artists here should be commended for a job well done, the story artists need to get a better understanding of what made Pixar so special to begin with. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2012
A- Prometheus (2012) Danny Minton I think the thing I like most about this film is that it will spark many, many interesting conversations. So many people will have so many takes on the film and I am really looking forward to joining the debates. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2012
A- The Dictator (2012) Danny Minton He very lovingly pokes fun at us like a favorite uncle who wants you to pull his finger. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2012
B- Albert Nobbs (2011) Danny Minton Glenn Close does her best Clay Aiken impression as she pretends to be a male butler in 19th century Ireland. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2012
A- Get the Gringo (2012) Danny Minton Made me want to take a shower after watching. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2012
B+ The Cabin in the Woods (2011) Danny Minton This movie might look like a scream-fest from the outside, but what you get on the inside is a very clever and extremely funny pseudo-scarer. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2012
A Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011) Danny Minton Through the boy's eyes we see a world that can be cruel, but that can also be filled with love, laughter and adventure. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2012
C+ J. Edgar (2011) Danny Minton Clint is a talented composer, but this film needed a much better score than it received. I would bet that hiring Alexandre Desplat, a composer who is much more adept at expressing emotion in softer films, could have improved the experience immensely. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2011
A- The Elephant in the Living Room (2010) Danny Minton Incredibly informational, interesting and profoundly moving. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2011
B Drive (2011) Danny Minton The most impressive performance here though comes from Albert Brooks who plays the deceptively friendly gangster and I will predict that he will get his first Oscar nomination (and possible win) in over twenty years. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2011
B The Guard (2011) Danny Minton There aren't a whole lot of leading roles out there for guys that look like a 56-year-old version of me. So there should be no wonder why I like the guy and want to see him do well. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2011
C+ Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) Danny Minton When my bladder and I began analyzing it, we found many, many places where [running] time could have been effectively cut down. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011
A+ The Tree of Life (2011) Danny Minton If you actually ask "honey, should we go see Pirates, Hangover or Tree of Life?," by all means - go see one of the other two. Your frame of mind is everything when it comes to your potential enjoyment and connection with this movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2011
B+ Water for Elephants (2011) Danny Minton Stealing the show here was the Tai, the elephant actress. Not only was she beautiful and talented, but she brought more to the table than I'm sure was expected. She had me mesmerized every minute she was the in the film. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2011
C- The Eagle (2011) Danny Minton PG-13 is not the arena this film should be fighting in. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2011
F Season of the Witch (2011) Danny Minton The only time I was even modestly entertained was when the 10-year-old boy sitting behind me (obviously taken out of school to see the film by his model parents) started belching unrelentingly at the screen. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2011
A+ True Grit (2010) Danny Minton Using the themes of protestant hymns such as "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms," Carter provides a score that soars above the film and resonates in your head long after you've left the theater. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2010
C+ Love & Other Drugs (2010) Danny Minton Having worked as a Pfizer rep for the exact same period that our hero did, I can tell you that they got almost everything wrong. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2010
A+ Tangled (2010) Danny Minton Through use of ingenious story crafting, the fairy tale proves to be what I consider Disney's best film (not including Pixar pics) since Beauty and the Beast, and overall one of their greatest creations. EDIT
Posted Nov 23, 2010
C Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) Danny Minton Somebody obviously likes David Byrne and Brian Eno, but to have every song of the movie sung by them felt like a bad 80’s comedy starring Dudley Moore, not a contemporary movie about the financial crash that had such a great impact on all of our lives. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2010
A Waiting for Superman (2010) Danny Minton A catalyst for revolution. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2010
C- Going the Distance (2010) Danny Minton And thus the romantic comedy slump continues. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2010
A- To Save a Life (2010) Danny Minton I can see this being a positive influence for many who watch it and for some it could possibly even make a huge difference, and you don't get that from many movies these days. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2010
C+ The A-Team (2010) Danny Minton Everything in this film runs on perfect timing built on insane assumptions EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2010
A+ Toy Story 3 (2010) Danny Minton The emotional roller coaster this film takes its audience on is better than anything at Disneyland. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2010
C- Robin Hood (2010) Danny Minton This looked like the airplane version of the movie and not the epic it could have been. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2010
B Babies (2010) Danny Minton I really did love seeing these children age a year over ninety minutes and was as entertained as could be. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2010
A Kick-Ass (2010) Danny Minton The real star of the film is young Moretz, whose caped crusader "Hit Girl" is one of the baddest super heroes to grace the screen. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2010
A+ How to Train Your Dragon (2010) Danny Minton DeBlois and Sanders did a fine job with their last outing Lilo and Stitch, but they've really outdone themselves with this newest creation and should give Pixar a run for their money come awards time. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2010
D+ Clash of the Titans (2010) Danny Minton This really is all action and no adventure. There is not a moment where Perseus looks like he is astonished that these things are happening to him for the first time. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2010
B+ Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) Danny Minton It is crude, raunchy, full of bad behavior, and extremely funny. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2010
B Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010) Danny Minton What really works most is the great chemistry between Gordon and Capron. This very talented duo stirred up thoughts of what Steve Martin and John Candy might have been like had they teamed up long ago as twelve-year-old boys. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2010
C+ Alice in Wonderland (2010) Danny Minton This creation is nice to look at but lacks energy, curiosity, or any kind of emotional draw. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2010
B- The Wolfman (2010) Danny Minton Just like the duality of the Wolfman himself, there is a wild and crazy fun part to this movie and a serious, dull, lifeless partition as well. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2010
A- Edge of Darkness (2010) Danny Minton It's a deeper and more thought-provoking film than I could have expected or imagined. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2010
B+ Sherlock Holmes (2009) Danny Minton There is a synergistic relationship here in this movie between Director Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr. that works in a grand way. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2009
A+ Avatar (2009) Danny Minton The special effects are so good here that you don't even notice them. It is eerie how Cameron has made it look and feel like he is just pointing a camera at the action. EDIT
