film reviews

MaxSpace

Maleficent

Reimagined Sleeping Beauty never quite lives up to Angelina Jolie's cheekbones.

MaxSpace

Transcendence

Man vs. machine sci fi is both derivative and ridiculous.

MaxSpace

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Another great addition to the Avengers franchise

MaxSpace

Divergent

The Breakfast Club goes dystopian

MaxSpace

Bad Words

Jason Bateman's directorial debut is both funny and offensive. (But mostly offensive).

MaxSpace

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson delights (again) in this witty tale of a genteel action hero.

MaxSpace

Pompeii

It's like Gladiator. . . with volcanoes! It's Gladcanoes!

MaxSpace

Winter's Tale

The cinematic equivalent of a greeting card from a second-rate New Age bookstore.

MaxSpace

The Lego Movie

Surprise! It's really good!

MaxSpace

The Monuments Men

Film about a mission to recover art stolen by the Nazis fails to quicken pulse.

MaxSpace

That Awkward Moment

Too much bathroom humor in this ill-conceived bromantic comedy

MaxSpace

Labor Day

Not even the talented leads can save this ridiculous romance.

MaxSpace

Lone Survivor

A bloody battle in Afghanistan brought vividly (too vividly?) to life.

MaxSpace

Her

On falling in love (with an Operating System)

MaxSpace

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

For a film about taking risks and embracing adventure, it feels awfully safe.

MaxSpace

Blue is the Warmest Color

An emotional repertoire of adolescence

MaxSpace

Review: Frances Ha

Frances Ha is basically all about the adorableness of Gerwig. Seriously.

MaxSpace

Review: Olympus Has Fallen

This movie has one of the higher body counts of a film that doesn’t take place on the beaches of Normandy that I’ve ever seen.

MaxSpace

Premium Rush

Joseph Gordon-Levitt as America's first hipster-approved action hero.
