Rating Title/Year Author
Now You See Me (2013) Deborah Krieger However, the film sacrifices true depth of characterization of its leads in its quest to be purely entertaining, and the film suffers as a result. We are left rooting for-and against-a series of charming façades. EDIT

Much Ado About Nothing (2012) Deborah Krieger Joss Whedon's stab at the material is absolutely worthy, featuring some stellar performances and providing satisfying levels of depth through its direction that the dialogue alone does not convey. EDIT

Jobs (2013) Deborah Krieger This dichotomy between what the film insists is Jobs at his best, and what we the audience see as Jobs at his arguable worst undermines the overall message and what we are supposed to take away from the movie. EDIT

The Conspirator (2010) Deborah Krieger Although the "guilty" verdict is already a foregone conclusion, under the sure, steady direction of Robert Redford[...]the film builds suspense and allows the watcher to hope against hope that somehow the verdict will return as "not guilty". EDIT

The LEGO Movie (2014) Deborah Krieger Clearly having fun with the low expectations garnered by the idea of a full-length film devoted to schilling for a toy, the film's directors have nonetheless created a solidly enjoyable and often hilarious 100 minutes of entertainment. EDIT

Thin (2006) Deborah Krieger What I found interesting while watching the film is that no attention is paid to aspects of aspects of society, especially in the United States, that could very well have played a part in these women and girl developing such severe eating disorders. EDIT

Divergent (2014) Deborah Krieger Divergent is one of the few film adaptations that improves upon its source material. That's not to say that Divergent is a great film, but it's definitely a solid, often thrilling adaptation of a weakly written book. EDIT

Star Trek Beyond (2016) Deborah Krieger Needless to say-much to my surprise-I found myself truly enjoying Star Trek Beyond, despite its faults, even more than the original 2009 reboot. EDIT
