Rating Title/Year Author
Que Caramba Es La Vida (2014) Monica Castillo It seems like a new study about gender equality crops up every few days. Que Caramba could have used a bit more of a punch to get that across to its audience. EDIT

Amour (2012) Monica Castillo Beautifully shot, powerfully acted, and skillfully composed, Amour is worth pursuing. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2016
Arbitrage (2012) Monica Castillo Really, it could use some nip/tuck on the screenplay, but the players are decent and the movie looks opulent enough. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2016
The Comedy (2012) Monica Castillo For something titled The Comedy, this movie isn't funny. Or charming, likable, enjoyable, or any other adjectives you would find splashed on a poster. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2016
Exit Elena (2012) Monica Castillo I liked the concept of Exit Elena more so than the execution. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2016
The Armstrong Lie (2013) Monica Castillo The flow is constantly punctured by Gibney's interjections, as if we were hearing it from a jilted ex. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2014
Saving Mr. Banks (2013) Monica Castillo The movie wrenches much too many artificial emotions, leaving an ooey-gooey, sappy aftertaste that isn't everyone's cup of tea. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2013
Step Up Revolution (2012) Monica Castillo Despite the fact that there are four choreographers listed on the IMDB credits, even a few of the routines felt flat. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2013
The Spectacular Now (2013) Monica Castillo It's a bittersweet movie that I can't wait to see again. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2013
The Muppets (2011) Monica Castillo This is comedic gold! EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2012
Men in Black 3 (2012) Monica Castillo The third time is supposed to be the charm, right? EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2012
The Bourne Legacy (2012) Monica Castillo This is not the Bourne sequel you were looking for. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2012
Cosmopolis (2012) Monica Castillo Well, if it isn't the most confounding movie of the year. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2012
Savages (2012) Monica Castillo After all the fun we have with Del Toro's murderous perv, Travolta's crooked cop, and Hayek's sentimental cartel head, we return to the artificial heart of the story of the pot-smoking, gun-toting threesome. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2012
People Like Us (2012) Monica Castillo Everybody gets angry at each other because no one talks or uses reason. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2012
Peace, Love & Misunderstanding (2011) Monica Castillo The lighting was so off in this movie that bright patches of sunlight made me squint and dark nighttime scenes lost some character's facial features. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2012
Rock of Ages (2012) Monica Castillo No fun was had when I saw Rock of Ages. No fun at all. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2012
Real Steel (2011) Monica Castillo Real Steel plays like a glossy commercial lasting over 90 minutes. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2012
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) Monica Castillo I don't want to live on this planet anymore. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2012
Project X (2012) Monica Castillo It's an all no-name cast of actors and actresses, culled from the depths of Craigslist. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2012
The Woman in Black (2012) Monica Castillo It's silly and spelled out, but the fun house aspect remains. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2012
Red Tails (2012) Monica Castillo It was a pretty fair movie (save for the weird zooming camera work that's become a trend-your movie feels dated five minutes after release). EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2012
Red Lights (2012) Monica Castillo Will someone give poor DeNiro a decent script? EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2012
Contagion (2011) Monica Castillo As disaster celeb-loaded disaster movies go, it could have been a lot worse. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2012
War Horse (2011) Monica Castillo Spielberg works in some hefty homages to Gone with the Wind, The Searchers and Paths of Glory that may draw a few impressed gasps... or a couple of eye rolls. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2011
Shame (2011) Monica Castillo Fassbender performs his role of the addict with a suave attitude that doesn't make you hate the guy. At first you envy him -- by the end, you pity him. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2011
New Year's Eve (2011) Monica Castillo To keep it short and sweet: the movie is messier than Times Square at 3 a.m. on January 1st. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2011
Hugo (2011) Monica Castillo Hugo is nothing short of gorgeous. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2011
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) Monica Castillo Just have fun with the movie, embrace it with premature Christmas cheer. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2011
Happy Feet Two (2011) Monica Castillo Easily the most interesting part of the story has nothing to do with the overdramatic penguin club but rather a pair of excestentialist krill. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2011
Tower Heist (2011) Monica Castillo It's kind of weird to say this but, I think Rush Hour 3 may have had more suspense EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2011
Footloose (2011) Monica Castillo Don't come with any high expectations. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2011
What's Your Number? (2011) Monica Castillo This sort of movie is why most men hate romcoms, and I agree. I do not want to pay for anything that speaks down to or insults me. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2011
Dolphin Tale (2011) Monica Castillo Stilted acting, shoddy filming and CGI effects look as legitimate as a sand dollar. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2011
Drive (2011) Monica Castillo It's the kind of movie magic that we don't see every Friday night at the theaters anymore. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2011
Seven Days in Utopia (2011) Monica Castillo It's not challenging on the spiritual level nor is it particularly good. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2011
Conan the Barbarian (2011) Monica Castillo The only time the 3D was decent was during the opening montage of the evil MacGuffin they're after. Aren't you proud you spent that money on about 15 minutes of footage? EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2011
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) Monica Castillo It's the kind of bad movie you laugh at, not laugh with. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2011
The Devil's Double (2011) Monica Castillo Is this entertainment, or an interesting bit of commentary on how little we know about the people who reside in the ivory towers of dictatorships? Perhaps a bit of both. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2011
Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) Monica Castillo It's a tempestuous up and down storyline of laughing and sighing. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2011
Cowboys & Aliens (2011) Monica Castillo It's a straight bland whiskey drink of a western, with a garnish of aliens on top. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2011
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Monica Castillo It's simple, but effective and engaging. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2011
Zookeeper (2011) Monica Castillo Perhaps the madcap adventures of a love-lorn middle aged man is not exactly kid's stuff. But it sure isn't for the adults in the audience either. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2011
Larry Crowne (2011) Monica Castillo What a pleasant, easy-going experience that was. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2011
Bad Teacher (2011) Monica Castillo Somehow we are supposed to feel sympathy for this wreck of a woman. EDIT
