Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

2.5

2011 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

A film that is losing the magic, losing the effects, and losing the point of the whole series.

2017.06.01

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

4.2

2007 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

A movie that is beginning to falter under the weight of its special effects and its plotlines.

2017.05.31

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

6.7

2006 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

Fun, with a terrific set of antogonists, you slowly start to feel a bit overwhelmed by it all.

2017.05.30

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

9.1

2003 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

With terrific acting between Depp and Rush, as well as incredibly original characters, and skilled pivoting between the moments that matter.

2017.05.29

The Island

2.5

1980 | Adventure | Drama | Action

Michael Caine turns in an insane performance in this lost forgotten movie of the 1980s.

2017.05.26

Against All Flags

4.2

1952 | Adventure | Action

Beginning to show signs of the drinking that plagued him, Flynn somehow still buoys up this picture from being the complete mess it should have been.

2017.05.24

Captain Blood

10

1935 | Adventure | Love

Still an exemplary pirate movie, it will forever be a standard to which I hold the swashbuckling genre.

2017.05.22

The Island

6.7

2005 | Adventure | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

This fever dream of a Michael Bay film has tons of highlights despite being messy and having nonsense throughout.

2017.05.17

Oculus

5.8

2013 | Horror

A killer mirror movie (ummmm) that somehow turns out scarier than you expect.

2017.05.16

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

7.5

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy

A decent addition to the new HP series – it never approaches the series at its height, but is serviceable throughout.

2017.05.15

Young Frankenstein

9.1

1974 | Comedy | Science fiction

Comedy at a full-blown tilt.

2017.05.12

Shut In

2.5

2016 | Drama | Suspense

A decent idea with a terrible amount of red herrings and false thrills.

2017.05.10

The Blues Brothers

8.3

1980 | Music | Action | Comedy | Crime

One relentless chase scene, with strong memorable characters and excellent musical performances.

2017.05.08

Zodiac

6.7

2007 | Drama | Suspense | Crime | Mystery

Never generates the tension it so desperately needs, this thriller consistently lingers on characters incessantly.

2017.05.05

Joy

3.3

2015 | Drama | Comedy

Coming across as completely unnecessary, this film stars the David O. Russell trio once more as they try to keep the movie relevant.

2017.05.03

Allied

6.7

2016 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Love | War

Desperately needing some emotion that doesn’t feel stale and overused.

2017.05.02

Passengers

5.8

2016 | Drama | Science fiction | Love

Falling short of all it could have been, this film rides its stars charisma to being eternally average.

2017.05.01

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

7.5

2017 | Fantasy | Drama | Action

It’s got some good action, good humor, an easy, recognizable story, and a great score.

2017.05.01

Midnight Special

8.3

2016 | Adventure | Drama | Science fiction

This Spielbergian science fiction film features beautiful filming, wonderful acting, but few answers.

2017.04.28

The Legend of Hercules

2014 | Adventure | Action

Bad. Just… Bad.

2017.04.26

The Guest

10

2014 | Action | Suspense | Mystery

Gleefully manic, this film will have you riding the edge and laughing out loud.

2017.04.24

Beauty and the Beast

5.0

2017 | Fantasy | Love

This “Tale as Old as Time” feels that way in this clunky remake.

2017.04.21

Beauty and the Beast

10

1991 | Fantasy | Animation | Music | Love

An example of a fairy tale that dares to think further than the source.

2017.04.21

Unforgettable

4.2

2017 | Drama | Suspense

A completely forgettable (see what I did there) film destined to play on the Lifetime network for weeks.
