Rating Title/Year Author
3/4 Interstellar (2014) Sam Fragoso It's an experience. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2014
3.5/4 Dear White People (2014) Sam Fragoso Arguably the most vital film to come out of Hollywood in 2014. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2014
2/4 Fury (2014) Sam Fragoso Ayer's overlong, 134-minute screenplay never pops with any urgency, passion, or fire. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2014
3.5/4 Nightcrawler (2014) Sam Fragoso A hypnotic confluence of action, comedy and hysteria that is at once unnerving, exhilarating and unlike anything I've ever seen. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2014
3.5/4 Gone Girl (2014) Sam Fragoso A galvanizing portrait of defective love that twists, turns, and unfurls until you don't know what to think anymore. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2014
2/4 Two Night Stand (2014) Sam Fragoso A foreign film without subtitles - a movie whose language is incomprehensible to anyone who has truthfully been involved. EDIT
Posted Sep 29, 2014
1/4 This Is Where I Leave You (2014) Sam Fragoso We are, at least in some small measure, partly responsible for the abhorrent, radioactive hazmat that is Shawn Levy's latest film. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2014
1.5/4 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) Sam Fragoso Webb's second entry into this tiresome franchise amounts to little more than a case study in superhero movie banality. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2014
2/4 Transcendence (2014) Sam Fragoso Depending on how the next few decades unfold, people will look back at Transcendence as either a prophetic or surreal piece of filmmaking. EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2014
Draft Day (2014) Sam Fragoso I left with the unshakable feeling that this is the type of movie Costner would've starred in (and made better) 20-years ago. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2014
Under the Skin (2013) Sam Fragoso A formalist masterwork: moody, meditative and mystifying. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2.5/4 Breathe In (2013) Sam Fragoso It takes all of 10 minutes for Doremus' film to reveal itself to us: this is a movie about a conflicted father who has arrived at a crossroads, both morally and artistically. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2014
3/4 Bad Words (2014) Sam Fragoso Underneath Bad Words' thick layer of sardonicism and snark, there is heart. You just have to dig deep. Very deep. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2014
1.5/4 Divergent (2014) Sam Fragoso Despite being filmed and set in Chicago, Divergent feels like a manufactured product churned out by the Hollywood system. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2014
2/4 Non-Stop (2014) Sam Fragoso My lasting wish is that Neeson, now 61, retires this grating schtick soon. His Golden Years are nigh, and his undeniable talents need not be wasted any longer. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2014
3/4 RoboCop (2014) Sam Fragoso Jose Padilla's RoboCop is a galvanizing action picture that doesn't settle for merely retelling Verhoeven's original narrative, but updating it, both visually and thematically. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2014
4/4 The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Sam Fragoso There's a good chance that by the conclusion of Martin Scorsese's intoxicating, raucous, and shamelessly depraved "The Wolf of Wall Street" you're going to want to cleanse yourself through prayer, charity, or whatever it is that you do to feel virtuous. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2014
1/4 That Awkward Moment (2014) Sam Fragoso That Awkward Moment is neither romantic, nor comedic. Just idiotic. EDIT
