  • Now You See Me

    This film makes for pretty good popcorn entertainment – and (almost) demonstrates that Hollywood movies can still entrance, even in the age of frantic blockbusters stuffed full with hollow eye candy.

    (33) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Epic

    The by-the-numbers kid’s movie elements (which includes an unnecessary romance subplot) prevents Epic from completely living up to its name.

  • Fast & Furious 6

    At times, Fast & Furious 6 is a little unwieldy, saddled with a lot of added baggage, but it’s still an extremely entertaining ride.

    (39) by Ben Kendrick
  • The Iceman

    The Iceman is an average biopic that is elevated to something higher based solely on the strength of its star.

  • Iron Man 3

    Iron Man 3 should provide enough fun and excitement for both Iron Man die-hards and newly acquired Avengers fans.

    (356) by Ben Kendrick
  • Mud

    Mud is worthy viewing if you’re looking for a wonderfully strange indie folk tale – but be ready to invest the stamina needed to pull through the slower segments.

  • Oblivion

    Melodrama and predictable reveals keep the film from being the mind-bending creation that Kosinski may have envisioned, but the director still presents a captivating future with rich visuals.

    (175) by Ben Kendrick
  • Evil Dead

    Remakes don’t get much better than this – in terms of revitalizing the franchise and servicing both veteran and newcomer viewers.

    (66) by Kofi Outlaw
  • Spring Breakers

    As a whole, this makes for an audacious, yet enthralling and even transcendent, portrait of maturity sprouting from a place of corruption and avarice.

  • The Croods

    The Croods is yet another successful film for Dreamworks, managing to land somewhere between their best works (Panda, Dragon) and their lackluster efforts.

  • Oz the Great and Powerful

    The story of Oscar Diggs is a worthwhile tale with a satisfying payoff – an experience that will leave most filmgoers glad that Raimi decided to investigate the humbug behind the curtain.

    (67) by Ben Kendrick
  • Stoker

    Stoker is worthy viewing for those who are fans of its director or are open to exploring a very unconventional cinematic story, made in homage of classic Hitchcock.

  • The Last Stand

    The Last Stand is a fun throwback to the days of formulaic but immensely entertaining Schwarzenegger-led films

    (32) by Ben Kendrick
  • Django Unchained

    Successfully pays homage to its spaghetti western inspiration and disturbing source material with sharp performances, entertaining characters, as well as poignant violence.

    (127) by Ben Kendrick
  • Jack Reacher

    Jack Reacher is primarily a frame for the fan-favorite actor to flex his (noticeably aging) action muscles – but that doesn’t mean the film fails to satisfy with plenty of excitement.

    (51) by Ben Kendrick
  • Killing Them Softly

    The film nonetheless offers a lot intriguing visual stimuli and food for thought – which you’ll have no choice but to consume as it’s being force-fed to you.

    (28) by Kofi Outlaw
  • Anna Karenina

    The rich performances, succinct screenwriting, and strong direction make it a re-interpretation worth seeing.

    (12) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Seven Psychopaths

    Seven Psychopaths is a smart and well-executed dark comedy full of over-the-top violence and intriguing rumination on human nature and the joy of killing.

    (32) by Ben Kendrick
  • Sinister

    Derrickson’s film succeeds in delivering an exceptionally engaging, and frightening, movie experience with quality characters, a smart story, and plenty of scares.
