Poster for Ride Along

Ride Along

4.0

2014 | Action | Comedy

A mashup of watered-down action/comedy tropes and uninspired slapstick...

2014.01.17

Poster for The Legend of Hercules

The Legend of Hercules

3.0

2014 | Adventure | Action

Feels like a glorified Syfy movie that lacks the cheekiness necessary to make the whole experience a so-bad-it’s-good B-movie viewing.

Poster for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

6.0

Insightful, for sure, but something of a chore to sit through.

2013.12.24

Poster for Grudge Match

Grudge Match

5.0

2013 | Comedy

One icon-exploiting and formulaic Hollywood comedy that manages to clear the (not so challenging) bar that it aims for.

2013.12.24

Poster for American Hustle

American Hustle

9.0

Offers a real crowd-pleasing experience – one with profound social commentary.

2013.12.20

Poster for Walking With Dinosaurs

Walking With Dinosaurs

4.0

2013 | Adventure | Animation

Unfolds like a decent 3D documentary screened at a museum theater – which ultimately makes it a C-grade theatrical feature.

2013.12.20

Poster for Frozen

Frozen

8.0

2013 | Adventure | Animation

Offers a witty and heartfelt princess fairly tale with creative musical elements and some visual panache.

2013.11.27

Poster for Black Nativity

Black Nativity

6.0

2013 | Drama | Music

What saves the film is Lemmons’ ability to leave her personal stamp on the material, occasionally resulting in a movie that feels like the work of a true auteur...

2013.11.27

Poster for Philomena

Philomena

7.0

2013 | Drama

Dench and Coogan's work together is enough to accommodate many of the flaws in storytelling.

2013.11.22

Poster for Nebraska

Nebraska

9.0

2013 | Adventure | Drama

An elegant work of storytelling, which manages to make a thoughtful statement about the current demographic of older Americans.

2013.11.15

Poster for Dallas Buyers Club

Dallas Buyers Club

6.0

2013 | Drama | History

Works best as an uplifting viewing experience that showcases McConaughey and Leto’s great performances.

2013.11.08

Poster for Free Birds

Free Birds

4.0

2013 | Animation | Comedy

Feels like the result of a meeting among studio executives, who just threw together every idea they could imagine.

2013.11.01

Poster for 12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave

6.0

2013 | Drama | History

Voids feeling like cheap exploitation, but Ridley’s script reduces the evils of slavery to a concept that isn’t challenging...

2013.11.01

Poster for All Is Lost

All Is Lost

5.0

2013 | Adventure | Drama | Action

A work of art that impresses as a competent example of minimalistic storytelling, yet still feels too cold and distant...

2013.10.25

Poster for Machete Kills

Machete Kills

4.0

2013 | Action | Suspense | Crime

Supposed to be bad, but it’s also supposed to be entertainingly dumb and loony – which is where it falls short.

2013.10.11

Poster for Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet

5.0

2013 | Drama | Love

A respectable adaptation that most moviegoers (young and old) will be able to appreciate...

2013.10.11

Poster for Parkland

Parkland

3.0

2013 | Drama | History | Suspense | Mystery

The absence of decent intellectual/emotional payoff ultimately make the overall viewing experience too manipulative.

2013.10.04

Poster for Metallica: Through the Never

Metallica: Through the Never

6.0

2013 | Music

Succeeds as an enthralling and visceral concert movie viewing experience...

2013.10.03

Poster for Baggage Claim

Baggage Claim

4.0

2013 | Comedy

Mostly a harmless fantasy and isn’t offensively backwards-thinking.

2013.09.27

Poster for Battle of the Year

Battle of the Year

3.0

2013 | Drama | Music

There’s not nearly enough quality material to make Battle of the Year recommendable...

2013.09.20

Poster for Thanks for Sharing

Thanks for Sharing

6.0

2012 | Drama | Comedy

A commendable examination of addiction, sex and the nature of grown-up relationships...

2013.09.20

Poster for The Family

The Family

7.0

2013 | Action | Comedy | Crime

Besson once again proves that he is a storyteller who knows how to produce European pop-art cinema...

2013.09.13

Poster for Getaway

Getaway

2.0

2013 | Action | Crime

Solomon’s direction is so amateurish that Getaway fails to even provide serviceable B-movie thrills...

2013.08.30

Poster for You're Next

You're Next

5.0

2011 | Horror | Suspense | Mystery

There’s enough innovation and enthusiasm present to make it worth recommending to gore-hounds and hardcore horror lovers.
