4/5 Rodents of Unusual Size (2017) Widgett Walls Recommended. Does in seventy minutes what a History Channel docu couldn't do in seven hundred. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2019
3/5 Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) Widgett Walls If you too like action films with lots of flipping and gunplay, then probably you're going to greatly enjoy yourself. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2015
1.5/5 The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (2014) Widgett Walls They didn't go full Hobbit on us, but [Mockingjay] should have been one film. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2015
1/5 Maleficent (2014) Widgett Walls Disney's #1 villain...they've turned her into a glorified nanny and a prankster. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2014
4.5/5 Snowpiercer (2013) Widgett Walls Utterly surreal and completely mental. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2014
3.5/5 Godzilla (2014) Widgett Walls What is the line? 'It's not the Godzilla film you want, but it's the Godzilla film you need?' But it's neither. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2014
4/5 How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) Widgett Walls I'm so impressed I actually saw a movie where I plonked down the coin for 3D and felt like I hadn't been robbed. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2014
3.5/4 Edge of Tomorrow (2014) Widgett Walls Tom Cruise: in regards to Oblivion? All is forgiven. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2014
3.5/5 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Widgett Walls I went back and saw the first film again fairly quickly after seeing it the first time because I enjoyed it so much. Wouldn't elect to do that with this one. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2013
4/5 Kill Your Darlings (2013) Widgett Walls The story is slightly less important than the characterizations and the performances, because those carried everything. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2013
4.5/5 Gravity (2013) Widgett Walls That is probably one of the best acted, most visually stunning adventure films ever. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2013
3.5/5 Thor: The Dark World (2013) Widgett Walls I like the cast, I like the epic feel. It satisfied me in a way that Thor 1 did not. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2013
2.5/5 Ender's Game (2013) Widgett Walls The film's strengths are people standing around talking, so can we get back to some people standing around talking? That feels weird to say. But that's what happened. EDIT
Posted Nov 3, 2013
4.5/5 The World's End (2013) Widgett Walls What if John Wyndham decided to write a comedy? EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2013
3.5/5 Kick-Ass 2 (2013) Widgett Walls Silly, ridiculous, violent and worthy. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2013
2/5 Elysium (2013) Widgett Walls It almost feels like it's some sort of fable...but if that's the case...then it's so heavy-handed, you would need an exoskeleton to lift your hands. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3.5/5 Now You See Me (2013) Widgett Walls If you look at the film as escapist fare where you just go: 'My brain's off, you got a good cast, you got a good concept, roll with it' -- I think you'll be fine. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2013
1.5/5 The Wolverine (2013) Widgett Walls They have yet to make a film that is as good as Hugh Jackman is at portraying Wolverine. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2013
4.5/5 Pacific Rim (2013) Widgett Walls Is this going to give me enough of a story and enough characters to carry the amount of rocket-punching and monster-bashing that I want to see? The answer is yes. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2013
0.5/5 The Lone Ranger (2003) Widgett Walls Between this and The Green Hornet, the Reid Family has been royally screwed by Hollywood. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2013
2/5 World War Z (2013) Widgett Walls We could have had the zombie Red Storm Rising. Instead, we got 28 Days Later, on speed, in more locations, with a lame ending. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2013
2.5/5 Man of Steel (2013) Widgett Walls Hopelessly convoluted in a way that only a cast this good could save. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2013
1.5/5 After Earth (2013) Widgett Walls The script basically has its legs broken as badly as Will Smith's. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2013
3/5 The Iceman (2012) Widgett Walls Person A went to Place B and shot Person C in D Face and that's all well and good...but if I'm going to spend time with someone, I want to know a little bit more. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2013
3.5/5 Fast & Furious 6 (2013) Widgett Walls The answer to the question of 'What if the people behind Top Gear did a Mission Impossible film?' EDIT
Posted May 25, 2013
4/5 Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) Widgett Walls 'Evil Benedict Cumberbatch.' It's almost as much fun to say it as it is to watch it happen on the screen. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2013
2.5/5 The Great Gatsby (2013) Widgett Walls It feels like the actors are just Acting So Hard--you'd think with the 3D you'd see their Acting-Ness coming right at you. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2013
4/5 Iron Man 3 (2013) Widgett Walls They decided to make a sort of mad James Bond film...except instead of Bond, you've got Tony Stark...who, by the way, has a suit of armor. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2013
0.5/5 Oblivion (2013) Widgett Walls The part of the film that works the best? Morgan Freeman looks absolutely awesome in those sunglasses. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2013
1.5/5 Olympus Has Fallen (2013) Widgett Walls On the actual Secret Service entrance exam, please tell me one of the first questions is: 'Should you run directly into the line of fire? Yes/No.' EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2013
0.5/5 Evil Dead (2013) Widgett Walls If you watched the first film's vine attack and went, 'You know what this needs? This needs to be more like hentai.' If you thought that, then this film is for you. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2013
1.5/5 G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) Widgett Walls If you played with G.I. Joe action figures...any crazy storyline you came up with is probably less silly than this. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2013
2.5/5 Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) Widgett Walls You know, its heart was in the right place. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2013
3/5 Zero Dark Thirty (2012) Widgett Walls A well-acted, well-intentioned, disjointed mess. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2013
4/5 Django Unchained (2012) Widgett Walls This is pretty much exactly what you would want from a Tarantino western. EDIT
Posted Jan 5, 2013
3/5 Jack Reacher (2012) Widgett Walls The ultimate marriage between Action Guy Tom Cruise and Non-Tom Cruise Tom Cruise. EDIT
Posted Dec 25, 2012
1.5/5 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Widgett Walls 'Well, that was the longest video game trailer I have ever seen. No, seriously, are you going to show the real film now?' EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2012
4/5 Lincoln (2012) Widgett Walls What I wanted to say to Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field: for God's sake, just stop and take your Oscars...you're breaking my heart and you're killing me. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2012
4/5 Skyfall (2012) Widgett Walls Traveling the world, solving a mystery, hunting people down, killing some of those people...everything that you want James Bond to do. Then it takes an interesting turn. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2012
4.5/5 Cloud Atlas (2012) Widgett Walls If there is a fault to be found with this film, it's that it wants to be about everything. But if it was any less than that, it wouldn't be this film. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2012
3/5 The Man With the Iron Fists (2012) Widgett Walls This film is what you would get if you took somebody who had watched all the martial arts films in a 1980s video store...if you took their id and ran it through a juicer. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2012
3/5 Seven Psychopaths (2012) Widgett Walls When the film itself is jerking you around, the cast is carrying you through it. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2012
2.5/5 Taken 2 (2012) Widgett Walls This latest installment in the Liam Neeson Punching Things franchise...it is talkier, feels longer, is shakier and just feels less satisfying. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2012
4.5/5 Looper (2012) Widgett Walls I don't know where you guys found that kid... Was it the same lab where they grew the Fannings? EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2012
2/5 The Bourne Legacy (2012) Widgett Walls There comes a point at which you have enhanced soldiers fighting with non-enhanced people stuck in the middle...where you're just remaking Terminator 2. EDIT
Posted Aug 19, 2012
3.5/5 The Expendables 2 (2012) Widgett Walls You know...that balls-to-the-wall, ludicrous, stupid, ridiculous, amazing, awesome film that you thought you were getting with the first film? Well, better late than never. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2012
3/5 Total Recall (2012) Widgett Walls Kate Beckinsale moves like a freaking predator...[that's] predator with a lower case 'p.' EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2012
4.5/5 The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Widgett Walls Tom Hardy can apparently do more with only 20% of his face than most people can do with all of their face. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2012
4.5/5 The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) Widgett Walls It appears that someone's actually made a Spider-Man movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2012
3.5/5 Brave (2012) Widgett Walls That is the worst thing you can say about the film: it's a good, solid Disney film. Not a Pixar film. EDIT
