Latest 2 star movies

  • The Huntsman: Winter’s War Review

    Every single piece of The Huntsman: Winter’s War underwhelms – resulting in a strained prequel/sequel/spin-off fairytale with very little magic.

  • Criminal Review

    Despite a fun performance from Kevin Costner, Criminal is a half-baked action/thriller that fails to properly explore its sci-fi premise.

  • Hardcore Henry Review

    Hardcore Henry is only partly successful at using the first person POV format to create a unique cinematic experience.

  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Review

    It’s not exactly a bar-raising sequel, but My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 has enough of its predecessor’s charm and sincerity to earn a passing grade.

  • The Divergent Series: Allegiant Review

    Allegiant is a subpar installment in The Divergent Series that fails to justify the decision to split the final Divergent novel into two movies.

  • The Brothers Grimsby Review

    The Brothers Grimsby is a middle of the road action/comedy where Sacha Baron Cohen’s R-Rated comedy brand offers diminishing returns.

  • Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Review

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is an uneven, but otherwise passable wartime comedy/drama anchored by Tina Fey’s performance.

  • London Has Fallen Review

    London Has Fallen is an uninspired sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, but has some of its predecessor’s cheesy action movie throwback charm.

  • Triple 9 Review

    Triple 9 has elements of greatness, but its talented cast and inspired directorial flourishes are offset by messy storytelling choices.

  • Zoolander 2 Review

    Zoolander 2 aims to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor, but amounts to a serviceable (though less memorable) comedy sequel.

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is unwieldy horror-comedy – delivering an amusing but gimmicky blend of Regency-era romance and zombie mythology.

  • The Finest Hours Review

    The Finest Hours is a respectful dramatization of the real-life events that inspired it, but is too by the numbers to leave a strong impression.

  • Kung Fu Panda 3 Review

    Kung Fu Panda 3 is a well-meaning piece of escapism for kids – one that shows signs of wear in the larger computer-animated kung fu franchise.

  • Ride Along 2 Review

    Ride Along 2 is an uninspired retread of its predecessor, but manages to reach the (low) bar set for this action/comedy franchise.

  • 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi Review

    13 Hours has elements of a lean and efficient action/thriller, but is bloated and overblown thanks to Michael Bay’s directorial approach.

  • The Forest Review

    The Forest struggles to transform its spooky premise and haunting setting into memorable or unique on-screen movie scares.

    (14) by Ben Kendrick
  • Daddy’s Home Review

    Daddy’s Home is a formulaic Will Ferrell comedy, but enough jokes hit their mark to make it a passable one.

    (7) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Krampus Review

    Krampus isn’t as clever or scary as Christmas horror/comedies past, but provides enough kitschy fun for those craving a darker holiday yarn.

    (26) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Victor Frankenstein Review

    Victor Frankenstein is an entertainingly kooky, but otherwise messy and slapdash re-imagining of the Frankenstein mythos.

  • Secret in Their Eyes Review

    Secret in Their Eyes is a well-acted and politically-charged drama/thriller with ambitions that exceed its grasp.
