'World War Z' is a fast-paced, exciting thriller, which blends the horror, action, and science-fiction genres generally well. Brad Pitt gives a decent performance as Gerry Lane, but the film fails to create a real connection between the viewer and Pitt's family. 'WWZ' ends up being an above average film, which provides a nice new look at an oft-visited idea. Grade: B
'Man of Steel' is a hard-hitting, action-packed summer blockbuster. Cavill is more than serviceable as our hero, Kal-El, while Crowe and Amy Adams provide strong acting from the supporting roles. The action sequences are immaculate, and Snyder's quick-cutting direction gives the movie great pace and keeps the audience engaged. Overall, 'Man of Steel' is a must-see 2013 summer film. Grade: B+
'This Is the End' is, by far, the funniest movie of 2013. The humor may be immature, but Seth Rogen is to immature jokes, what Shakespeare was to tragedy. This may not be the best Rogen/Goldberg flick of all time, but it will have you laughing from start to finish. Grade: B+
'The Purge' is an appropriate title, considering this movie is a regurgitation of familiar plot devices. The actual concept of the purging event could've served as the foundation for a great movie, but instead serves as the setting for a 'Straw Dogs' knockoff. There's little emotional attachment to the characters in the movie, and the only moments of anticipation occurred when I was anticipating the end of the film. Some of the action sequences are entertaining, but overall, this movie is not worth wasting your time on. Grade: D
To say 'Pain and Gain' is flawed is an understatement, but at the same time that doesn't mean it isn't interesting and entertaining . Michael Bay takes an extremely light hearted look at a very dark story, which either shows depth that I didn't know Bay possessed, or reflects a shocking lack of self-awareness. Wahlberg gives a solid performance as Danny Lugo, and 'The Rock' is passable given the tone of the film. Ultimately, 'Pain and Gain' is an entertaining movie, that will likely have decent rewatchability factor on HBO. Grade: C
