3/4 Beauty and the Beast (2017) Neil Rosen Overall, they've done a decent job, it's just not the masterpiece that the original was. EDIT

1.5/4 Kong: Skull Island (2017) Neil Rosen If all you're looking for is visually impressive non-stop action, and you don't care about story, dialogue or characters, then go. But I need a lot more out of a movie. EDIT

3/4 Live by Night (2016) Neil Rosen Maybe it doesn't quite gel into a perfect film, but it's still worth watching as the storyline and fate of the main character do manage to grab you, along with several captivating scenes. EDIT

4/4 The Founder (2016) Neil Rosen If you think you deserve a break today, see this movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2017
3/4 Patriots Day (2016) Neil Rosen Ultimately, Patriots Day looks at how the city and its law enforcement officials came together in the face of this horrible tragedy. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2017
3.5/4 Hidden Figures (2016) Neil Rosen Ultimately, it is a very satisfying movie, with historical significance, and it is great to see these women finally get their due. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2016
3/4 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Neil Rosen From a visual standpoint it's stunning, as the production values are a real knockout. Plus the battle scenes are really well executed. That said the plot is not always that engaging. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2016
3/4 La La Land (2016) Neil Rosen Writer/director Damien Chazelle, whose last film was Whiplash, has made a movie that's visually amazing, awash in vibrant colors, while the camera magnificently swirls around the stars as they sing and dance. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2016
3.5/4 Lion (2016) Neil Rosen Director Garth Davis has taken this incredible, real life tale and made an emotionally involving film that pulls on your heartstrings every step of the way. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2016
3/4 Allied (2016) Neil Rosen The film is lensed beautifully, while attention to period detail is superb in all areas, from the costumes to the production design, expertly evoking the era. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2016
3/4 Bleed for This (2016) Neil Rosen If it wasn't based on a true story you could easily dismiss this film. But the fact that this really did happen sort of changes everything, and watching Vinny's remarkable comeback, along with sensational acting, gives audiences a lot to root for here. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2016
2/4 Loving (2016) Neil Rosen Sadly, the historical significance of the event gets somewhat shortchanged in the low-key approach that this filmmaker has taken, making Loving, for the most part. a missed opportunity. EDIT
Posted Nov 11, 2016
1/4 The Paperboy (2012) Neil Rosen The Paperboy doesn't deliver. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/4 By Sidney Lumet (2015) Neil Rosen Filled with an abundance of film clips from Lumet's vast body of work and interesting behind the scenes stories from Lumet, the movie will mainly be of interest to film buffs and fans of the heralded directors movies. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2016
3.5/4 Moonlight (2016) Neil Rosen It's a touching film that sensitively explores one person's search to find out who he is. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2016
2/4 The Accountant (2016) Neil Rosen The supporting cast, which includes JK Simmons, Jeffery Tambor and John Bernthal are fine, and it's intriguing and fun for a time. But the ludicrous ending kind of ruined the whole experience for me. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2016
3.5/4 The Birth of a Nation (2016) Neil Rosen The movie should be seen. It manages to involve you, makes a powerful statement and it's a story that needs to be told. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2016
1.5/4 Deepwater Horizon (2016) Neil Rosen Judged strictly as a big-budget action film, we've seen it all before in dozens of other movies, and it's boring and uninvolving. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2016
2.5/4 The Magnificent Seven (2016) Neil Rosen The emotion and heart of the movie gets lost in an all the action. But the stars make it kind of entertaining at times, and if all you're looking for is a violent shoot em' up Western with a high body count, it fits the bill. EDIT
Posted Sep 23, 2016
4/4 The Beatles: Eight Days a Week -- The Touring Years (2016) Neil Rosen For Beatles fans and as a history lesson for kids, should you take this ticket to ride? I say 'Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!' EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2016
3/4 Sully (2016) Neil Rosen As Sully, Hanks is perfectly cast. It's a well-crafted, understated performance as a man who's haunted by the incident, cool and calm under pressure and uncomfortable in the role of hero. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2016
2/4 Max Rose (2013) Neil Rosen Lewis does some nice work here, but the film itself, written and directed by Daniel Noah, is maudlin and a downer. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2016
4/4 War Dogs (2016) Neil Rosen Mature, sharp, insightful and funny. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/4 Hands of Stone (2016) Neil Rosen Despite some clichéd moments, it is enjoyable, and I would recommend it for the acting and the historical significance. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2016
2.5/4 Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Neil Rosen Streep is fun to watch, singing badly and being oblivious to her headache inducing sounds. Hugh Grant is also quite good, making sure Florence lives a sheltered life and never finds out the truth that her voice stinks. EDIT
Posted Aug 19, 2016
2.5/4 Get On Up (2014) Neil Rosen The narrative is unsatisfying as it leaves lots of unanswered questions. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
1.5/4 About Alex (2014) Neil Rosen Most of the characters are superficial and underdeveloped, while the film itself is filled with predictable scenarios. Strong performances by the cast elevate the material, but it's simply not enough. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
3/4 The Trip to Italy (2014) Neil Rosen It's very smart and entertaining, and if Coogan, Brydon and Winterbottom want to do a third film, I'd be more than happy to take another ride with them. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
2/4 The One I Love (2014) Neil Rosen Ultimately the surreal concept is half-baked and poorly executed, which will take audiences out of the movie all leading to an unsatisfying conclusion. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
3/4 This Is Where I Leave You (2014) Neil Rosen The stellar cast is first rate, elevating whatever weaknesses there are in the material, and the overall result is an endearing, dysfunctional family that you'll enjoying spending a few hours with. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
4/4 Men, Women & Children (2014) Neil Rosen The entire cast all turn in first-rate performances, as Reitman has given us a finely executed and fascinating cautionary tale that leaves lots of food for thought. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2016
4/4 Gone Girl (2014) Neil Rosen Novelist Flynn nicely adapts her book to the screen, remaining predominately faithful to her source material. EDIT
Posted Aug 16, 2016
2/4 Suicide Squad (2016) Neil Rosen The production values are quite good, and so is the fun, pop music score. But there's a lot of action scenes, and that shortchanges the storyline. It could have also used more doses of humor. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2016
2/4 Jason Bourne (2016) Neil Rosen Fans of the series will enjoy the chase scenes, but story-wise it's nowhere near as satisfying as some of its predecessors. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2016
2.5/4 Star Trek Beyond (2016) Neil Rosen If that's what you're looking for -- basically a shoot 'em up set amongst the stars -- then it's fun and fits the bill. But true Star Trek fans will not really be satisfied, as the higher, thought provoking ideas are missing. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2016
2/4 The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Neil Rosen Pets is basically a by the numbers, pretty predictable, perfunctory movie that will appeal to kids aged eight to twelve. However, adults will be pretty much left out in the cold. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2016
2/4 Ghostbusters (2016) Neil Rosen The fault lies not with the new cast; it's the lackluster script and the mediocre movie that they're saddled with. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2016
1.5/4 The BFG (2016) Neil Rosen The two-hour running time drags as this Spielberg misfire winds up being uninspiring and tedious. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2016
2/4 Man of Steel (2013) Neil Rosen It's bland and boring. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2016
3/4 Warcraft (2016) Neil Rosen It is not in the same league as Toy Story 3, Up or Ratatouille, but it is still a worthwhile effort, worthy of bearing the Pixar name, and an admirable sequel to its predecessor. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2016
1.5/4 Frozen (2010) Neil Rosen Overall, it's a one note premise, where the characters, stuck up on a lift, have nowhere to go and quite fittingly the movie in turn, goes nowhere. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2016
2.5/4 Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) Neil Rosen What Abrams has given us is the gravy without the meat and potatoes. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2016
3/4 The Witness (2015) Neil Rosen It's a fascinating documentary that debunks the myth as it tries to separate fact from fiction and in the process offers up an eye opening history lesson. EDIT
Posted Jun 10, 2016
2/4 Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Neil Rosen It is a smart idea and it is ambitious. It is just too bad that it wasn't funnier. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2016
3/4 X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Neil Rosen Fassbender, Lawrence and McAvoy class up the proceedings, and along with a cast of younger mutants and a surprise cameo, make it a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2016
2.5/4 Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) Neil Rosen Overall, Neighbors 2 is not as good as the original, but fans of the first film will still find enough humor here to make it worth a look. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2016
2.5/4 Elstree 1976 (2015) Neil Rosen It wears out its welcome after about an hour. It also raises a few questions that are left unanswered. But there's still enough here to make it worth a look for fans. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2016
3.5/4 The Family Fang (2015) Neil Rosen Kidman gives one of her best performances in years. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2016
4/4 The Jungle Book (2016) Neil Rosen What director Jon Favreau has done here is dazzling and spectacular. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2016
3.5/4 Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) Neil Rosen If you look past the laughs, partying and hijinks, you will see that Linklater is going for something more; a philosophy of being in the present and not trying too hard to figure out your entire life when you are only 18. EDIT
