Tomatometer-approved publication
Rating Title/Year Author
The Catechism Cataclysm (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A lot of it is tedious and directionless. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Rum Diary (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky This very funny, keenly observant movie meanders in the best way possible. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Like Crazy (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky All that's left is this foolish idea that they're supposed to be together. It's like... they're crazy. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Anonymous (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky This movie is lurid fun that is much smarter than it has any business being. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Puss in Boots (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Avoids all the worst tendencies of the later Shrek movies. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Johnny English Reborn (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It's really the directing in this film that really fouls it all up. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Three Musketeers (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky If you want over-the-top entertainment that doesn't respect the laws of physics, you can't do much better than this. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Texas Killing Fields (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A pretty routine police procedural with...a little bit of regional flavor. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Margin Call (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A film like this -- with a large cast and a big subject -- needs a clear, concise vision, a strong hand, and Margin Call just doesn't have it. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Mysteries of Lisbon (2010) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It is four and a half hours long, but it's got enough plot for at least 30 movies. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It tries to be more disgusting, more outrageous than this idea of a 12-person human centipede. The result is, by design, absolutely no good. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Father of Invention (2010) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Though it's got a few good ideas going for it, Father of Invention doesn't seem to know what kind of movie it wants to be. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky There's a germ of a light, goofy kids movie somewhere in here, but it's buried under a pile of clichés. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Service Entrance (2010) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky They romanticize the whole idea of these women. I mean, they're all essentially interchangeable. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Footloose (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky I'm sure there was some great choreography and some great dancing that went into this movie. You don't see any of it. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Carnage (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Great material, and it's got a really great sense of momentum. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It feels like the fourth or fifth film in a tired franchise. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Real Steel (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Never in a million years did I think that I would enjoy a boxing robot movie from the director of Night at the Museum. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Artist (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Dujardin's performance carries it forward like an adventure actor of the period. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Ides of March (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It's clear the Ides of March is about the nuts and bolts of politics. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Shame (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky So much of it is ambiguous and vague, it's almost as if McQueen didn't fully think it through. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It's this bleak sensibility that makes it so effective as a thriller. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A really cleverly made movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Take Shelter (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky The role of Curtis in this film is a perfect fit for Shannon's intense and slightly unhinged screen persona. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Elite Squad 2 (2010) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky The entire last half hour is just incredibly disingenuous. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky I liked it a lot. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
The Descendants (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Director Alexander Payne's best film. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
50/50 (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky This film is thin. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky It has a few very good ideas, and then, the rest of it is totally lackluster. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Hugo (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky The energy that's behind all of [Scorsese's] films is definitely present here. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Drive (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky The real star of this film is the direction of cult Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, making his Hollywood debut. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Moneyball (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky I enjoyed this film... with certain reservations. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
The Muppets (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A good imitation of the Muppet style. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky I feel like it is trying to be too many things at once. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2011
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A gorgeous-looking movie, especially in 3D. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2011
Another Earth (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky If you take away the sci-fi hook, the movie becomes a pretty standard indie drama... and not a very good one at that. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2011
Lucky (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Has no sense of tone. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
The Ward (2010) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky By no means a perfect film, but Carpenter has an unparalleled gift for constructing a sequence. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Lopsided and rushed. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
Zookeeper (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Vaguely misogynistic, ugly-looking, and features product placement so brazen that it would make Michael Bay blush. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
Project Nim (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Very strong and takes more than a few pages out of the Errol Morris playbook. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
Horrible Bosses (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A mess. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2011
Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky As an introduction to A Tribe Called Quest and a history of a very particular side of hip-hop, this is pretty hard to beat. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011
Bad Teacher (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Has every opportunity to turn mawkish but stays pitch black instead. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011
Terri (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky A smart drama about a group of characters who want to believe that they're doing the right thing. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky Maybe the best-looking 3D movie I've seen this year. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011
Larry Crowne (2011) Ignatiy Vishnevetsky High camp. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2011

Posted Jul 1, 2011

Posted Jul 1, 2011
