  • The Interview

    ‘The Interview’ Review

  • Annie

    ‘Annie’ Review

    Annie (2014) lands in an uninventive middle ground – it isn’t necessary (or an improvement) but it isn’t a total disaster either.

  • Laggies

    ‘Laggies’ Review

    Buoyed by Keira Knightley’s empathetic performance, Laggies is a decent coming of adult age dramedy that (like its protagonist) is a bit too directionless.

  • Before I Go to Sleep

    ‘Before I Go to Sleep’ Review

    Before I Go to Sleep does little to redefine the psychological thriller genre but still offers an intriguing central mystery that should keep viewers guessing.

  • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

    ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ Review

    Alexander is far less memorable than its source material, but it ultimately proves to be an affable (and refreshingly brisk) piece of family-friendly entertainment.

  • The Judge

    ‘The Judge’ Review

    The Judge is a very familiar tale of a man that finds humility in a return to his hometown – albeit one with a few genuinely powerful moments of drama.

  • Dracula Untold

    ‘Dracula Untold’ Review

    ‘Dracula Untold’ is not a masterful or deep re-introduction to the franchise; but as basic genre fare, it’s relatively fun in its depiction of the monster in a different light.

  • No Good Deed

    ‘No Good Deed’ Review

    In the end, ‘No Good Deed’ is pretty much what it promises to be: your standard home-invasion thriller.

  • The Giver

    ‘The Giver’ Review

    The Giver movie is a surprisingly generic addition to the young adult film genre – especially for a story that champions individuality and self-expression.

  • The Expendables 3

    ‘The Expendables 3′ Review

  • TMNT

    ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Review

    TMNT is shallow popcorn entertainment – but on the spectrum of reboots and remakes, it falls on the safe side of honorable.

  • Lucy

    ‘Lucy’ Review

    Lucy will not speak to a wide audience but those that fall within its target reach should be rewarded with thought-provoking science fiction.

  • Hercules

    ‘Hercules’ Review

    Basically, if the phrase Brett Ratner’s Hercules starring The Rock sounds like a fun movie to you, then you’ll get your money’s worth from the film.

  • The Purge: Anarchy

    ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ Review

    The Purge: Anarchy is a step down from the original in terms of narrative (and that’s saying something), but the basic promise of the series – thrills, kills, and mayhem – is still fulfilled in satisfying fashion.

  • Think Like A Man Too

    ‘Think Like A Man Too’ Review

    In the end, Think Like A Man Too is an obligatory sequel to an unexpected success ($96 million on a $12 million budget) that – unlike 22 Jump Street – is perfectly content to rest on its laurels.
