Latest 3 star movies

  • ‘It Follows’ Review

    The film might not be as deep as it aspires to be, but It Follows is one retro horror movie that’s quite creepy and has style to spare.

  • ‘Get Hard’ Review

    The combined power of Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell is enough to make ‘Get Hard’s raunchy and juvenile look at prison life a whole lot of depraved fun.

  • ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ Review

    Insurgent falls short of hitting the bar set by superior YA film adaptations but is a step in the right direction for the Divergent series.

  • ‘Run All Night’ Review

    ‘Run All Night’ marks a slight uptick in the stock of ‘Liam Neeson With a Gun’ action movies.

  • ‘Cinderella’ Review

    Cinderella plays it overly-safe in transitioning from cartoon-to-live-action but is sure to entertain Disney’s go-to juice box crowd.

  • ‘Chappie’ Review

    Chappie succeeds in Blomkamp’s principle goal: exploring a heightened version of childhood development told through the lens of gritty science-fiction and gangster stereotypes.

  • ‘Focus’ Review

    Despite its ‘never lose focus’ catchphrase, unnecessary tangents and underwhelming reveals make Focus a somewhat unfocused, though still enjoyable, viewing experience.

  • ‘The Duff’ Review

    The Duff makes timely points about self-love, body image, and modern relationships but falls short of becoming a teen drama classic.

  • ‘McFarland, USA’ Review

    McFarland, USA is by-the-numbers underdogs sport fare, but good direction and performances make it a respectable addition to the genre.

  • ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ Review

    ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ is basically a sillier version of an already silly concept – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still fun.

  • ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water’ Review

    ‘The SpongeBob Movie’ is essentially a kid-friendly stoner comedy, but also one that’s clever and inspired enough to keep SpongeBob fans entertained.

    (22) by Sandy Schaefer
  • ‘A Most Violent Year’ Review

    A Most Violent Year is not the next great mob movie it’s been advertised as; it’s a thoughtful character drama with a solid cast – no more, no less.

    (26) by Kofi Outlaw
  • ‘Black Sea’ Review

    It isn’t the smartest or most exciting thriller that viewers will have seen but, thanks to a quality cast and a fresh setup, Black Sea is still an entertaining watch.

  • ‘Black or White’ Review

    It’s far from ground-breaking in its social statements, but ‘Black or White’ is still a solid comedy/drama buoyed by good performances all around.

  • ‘Project Almanac’ Review

    Even though Project Almanac does not reinvent the found footage format, the movie still manages to tell a gripping (and stylish) time travel story.

  • ‘Justice League: Throne of Atlantis’ Review

    ‘Justice League: Throne of Atlantis’ is solid DC superhero entertainment and a great introduction to the Aquaman character.

    (52) by Kofi Outlaw
  • ‘The Wedding Ringer’ Review

    The Wedding Ringer is a mixed but overall enjoyable dramedy – one that includes a number of laugh-out-loud scenes couched in an often clumsy story.

    (19) by Ben Kendrick
  • ‘Big Eyes’ Review

    Tim Burton buttons down his kooky expressiveness with Big Eyes, but the resulting film is one of his better (and more self-reflective) in recent memory.

    (12) by Sandy Schaefer
  • ‘Into the Woods’ Review

    ‘Into the Woods’ struggles in fine tuning prior iterations for the big screen, and finding its own identity as a film, but it’s still an overall enchanting and entertaining musical experience for all ages.

  • ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ Review

    ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ is a fun enough trilogy-capper for every family or fan that has followed the series.

    (14) by Kofi Outlaw
  • ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Review

    Peter Jackson’s Battle of the Five Armies ends his Hobbit trilogy on a somewhat underwhelming note, but it’s worth taking that final trip to his Middle-earth.

    (62) by Sandy Schaefer
  • ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Review

    Exodus: Gods and Kings is not an offensive Hollywood cash-grab, nor is it a particularly inventive revision of the Exodus story.

    (109) by Ben Kendrick
  • ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ Review

    Its stars didn’t need their own movie, but there’s enough kid-friendly wit and non-stop humor to justify Penguins of Madagascar’s existence.

    (4) by Sandy Schaefer
  • ‘Horrible Bosses 2′ Review

    Horrible Bosses 2 is another fun time with the crazy trio we met in the first film – only it’s a party that definitely feels exhausted by the end.

    (15) by Kofi Outlaw
  • ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ Review

    It’s a solid entry in the series, and lays an intriguing foundation for Part 2, but on its own Mockingjay – Part 1 is rarely as entertaining or rewarding as its predecessors.
