Rodents of Unusual Size (2018)
Recommended. Does in seventy minutes what a History Channel docu couldn't do in seven hundred.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)
If you too like action films with lots of flipping and gunplay, then probably you're going to greatly enjoy yourself.
Posted Apr 10, 2015
They didn't go full Hobbit on us, but [Mockingjay] should have been one film.
Posted Apr 10, 2015
Disney's #1 villain...they've turned her into a glorified nanny and a prankster.
Posted Jul 17, 2014
Utterly surreal and completely mental.
Posted Jul 8, 2014
What is the line? 'It's not the Godzilla film you want, but it's the Godzilla film you need?' But it's neither.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
I'm so impressed I actually saw a movie where I plonked down the coin for 3D and felt like I hadn't been robbed.
Posted Jun 17, 2014
Tom Cruise: in regards to Oblivion? All is forgiven.
Posted Jun 14, 2014
I went back and saw the first film again fairly quickly after seeing it the first time because I enjoyed it so much. Wouldn't elect to do that with this one.

Kill Your Darlings (2013)
The story is slightly less important than the characterizations and the performances, because those carried everything.
Posted Nov 26, 2013
That is probably one of the best acted, most visually stunning adventure films ever.
Posted Nov 20, 2013
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
I like the cast, I like the epic feel. It satisfied me in a way that Thor 1 did not.
Posted Nov 9, 2013
Ender's Game (2013)
The film's strengths are people standing around talking, so can we get back to some people standing around talking? That feels weird to say. But that's what happened.
Posted Nov 3, 2013
The World's End (2013)
What if John Wyndham decided to write a comedy?
Posted Aug 25, 2013
Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
Silly, ridiculous, violent and worthy.
Posted Aug 17, 2013
It almost feels like it's some sort of fable...but if that's the case...then it's so heavy-handed, you would need an exoskeleton to lift your hands.
Posted Aug 15, 2013
Now You See Me (2013)
If you look at the film as escapist fare where you just go: 'My brain's off, you got a good cast, you got a good concept, roll with it' -- I think you'll be fine.
Posted Jul 27, 2013
The Wolverine (2013)
They have yet to make a film that is as good as Hugh Jackman is at portraying Wolverine.
Posted Jul 27, 2013
Pacific Rim (2013)
Is this going to give me enough of a story and enough characters to carry the amount of rocket-punching and monster-bashing that I want to see? The answer is yes.
Posted Jul 14, 2013
The Lone Ranger (2013)
Between this and The Green Hornet, the Reid Family has been royally screwed by Hollywood.
Posted Jul 4, 2013
World War Z (2013)
We could have had the zombie Red Storm Rising. Instead, we got 28 Days Later, on speed, in more locations, with a lame ending.
Posted Jun 21, 2013
Man of Steel (2013)
Hopelessly convoluted in a way that only a cast this good could save.
Posted Jun 15, 2013
After Earth (2013)
The script basically has its legs broken as badly as Will Smith's.
Posted Jun 8, 2013
The Iceman (2013)
Person A went to Place B and shot Person C in D Face and that's all well and good...but if I'm going to spend time with someone, I want to know a little bit more.
Posted May 27, 2013
Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
The answer to the question of 'What if the people behind Top Gear did a Mission Impossible film?'
Posted May 25, 2013
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
'Evil Benedict Cumberbatch.' It's almost as much fun to say it as it is to watch it happen on the screen.
Posted May 17, 2013
The Great Gatsby (2013)
It feels like the actors are just Acting So Hard--you'd think with the 3D you'd see their Acting-Ness coming right at you.
Posted May 12, 2013
Iron Man 3 (2013)
They decided to make a sort of mad James Bond film...except instead of Bond, you've got Tony Stark...who, by the way, has a suit of armor.
Posted May 4, 2013
The part of the film that works the best? Morgan Freeman looks absolutely awesome in those sunglasses.
Posted Apr 19, 2013
Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
On the actual Secret Service entrance exam, please tell me one of the first questions is: 'Should you run directly into the line of fire? Yes/No.'
Posted Apr 13, 2013
Evil Dead (2013)
If you watched the first film's vine attack and went, 'You know what this needs? This needs to be more like hentai.' If you thought that, then this film is for you.
Posted Apr 7, 2013
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)
If you played with G.I. Joe action figures...any crazy storyline you came up with is probably less silly than this.
Posted Mar 30, 2013
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
You know, its heart was in the right place.
Posted Mar 15, 2013
Zero Dark Thirty (2013)
A well-acted, well-intentioned, disjointed mess.
Posted Jan 14, 2013
Django Unchained (2012)
This is pretty much exactly what you would want from a Tarantino western.
Posted Jan 5, 2013
Jack Reacher (2012)
The ultimate marriage between Action Guy Tom Cruise and Non-Tom Cruise Tom Cruise.
Posted Dec 25, 2012
'Well, that was the longest video game trailer I have ever seen. No, seriously, are you going to show the real film now?'
Posted Dec 15, 2012
What I wanted to say to Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field: for God's sake, just stop and take your Oscars...you're breaking my heart and you're killing me.
Posted Nov 17, 2012
Traveling the world, solving a mystery, hunting people down, killing some of those people...everything that you want James Bond to do. Then it takes an interesting turn.
Posted Nov 12, 2012
Cloud Atlas (2012)
If there is a fault to be found with this film, it's that it wants to be about everything. But if it was any less than that, it wouldn't be this film.
Posted Nov 7, 2012
The Man With the Iron Fists (2012)
This film is what you would get if you took somebody who had watched all the martial arts films in a 1980s video store...if you took their id and ran it through a juicer.
Posted Nov 4, 2012
Seven Psychopaths (2012)
When the film itself is jerking you around, the cast is carrying you through it.
Posted Oct 22, 2012
Taken 2 (2012)
This latest installment in the Liam Neeson Punching Things franchise...it is talkier, feels longer, is shakier and just feels less satisfying.
Posted Oct 6, 2012
I don't know where you guys found that kid... Was it the same lab where they grew the Fannings?
Posted Oct 3, 2012
The Bourne Legacy (2012)
There comes a point at which you have enhanced soldiers fighting with non-enhanced people stuck in the middle...where you're just remaking Terminator 2.
Posted Aug 19, 2012
The Expendables 2 (2012)
You know...that balls-to-the-wall, ludicrous, stupid, ridiculous, amazing, awesome film that you thought you were getting with the first film? Well, better late than never.
Posted Aug 17, 2012
Total Recall (2012)
Kate Beckinsale moves like a freaking predator...[that's] predator with a lower case 'p.'
Posted Aug 4, 2012
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Tom Hardy can apparently do more with only 20% of his face than most people can do with all of their face.
Posted Jul 21, 2012
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
It appears that someone's actually made a Spider-Man movie.
