Latest 2 star movies

  • The Judge

    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.

    (26) by Ben Kendrick
  • Dracula Untold

    ‘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.

  • Annabelle

    Unfortunately, Annabelle can’t sustain much tension before fizzling out into a boringly repetitive exercise in rehashed scare tactics. The Conjuring this is not.

  • Tusk

    It has a memorably weird premise, sure, but Kevin Smith’s Tusk generally fails to be either that funny and/or scary… much less interesting.

  • A Walk Among the Tombstones

    ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ is your standard, traditional Noir flick; in other words, it feels pretty dated.

  • No Good Deed

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

  • The November Man

    In a genre where smarts and thrills are pivotal, The November Man delivers only routine (and uninspired) spy drama.

    (14) by Ben Kendrick
  • The Giver

    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 offers its share of old-school action thrills and fun, yet it has the same problems as its predecessors – and then some.

    (84) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Let's Be Cops

    Let’s Be Cops tries to offer coming-of-age gravitas, action movie thrills and comedic slapstick, but never excels at any one of them.

  • TMNT

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

  • Lucy

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

    (64) by Ben Kendrick
  • Hercules

    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.

    (54) by Sandy Schaefer
  • The Purge: Anarchy

    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.

  • Planes: Fire & Rescue

    The short of it: Planes: Fire & Rescue is a better made film than its predecessor on a technical level, but otherwise just as generic (in some ways, more so) on a storytelling level.

    (17) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Sex Tape

    Despite an intriguing setup, Sex Tape squanders its clever premise with an underwhelming combination of cheap jokes and ham-fisted family drama.

    (6) by Ben Kendrick
  • Tammy

    One the whole, Tammy is yet another effective demonstration of McCarthy’s comedic abilities – but much like its protagonist, the film is too jumbled and directionless for its own good.

    (23) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Think Like A Man Too

    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.

  • A Million Ways to Die in the West

    No doubt, there’s a market for films like A Million Ways to Die in the West and longtime MacFarlane fans (as well as raunch-comedy lovers) should find plenty to enjoy in the Western spoof.

    (37) by Ben Kendrick
  • Maleficent

    Maleficent is yet another old Disney product re-packaged with a big-name star and visionary director, in order to sell a “modern” fairy tale to audiences.
