22 Jump Street

22 Jump Street "Lowbrow As It Gets"

Chef

Chef "Tantalizes the Taste Buds"

June 5th, 2014

CHEF is more than just a little movie about food or about the personal redemption of a first-class chef.[READ|SHARE]

May 22nd, 2014

MILLION DOLLAR ARM is a comedy about sports, and it is about an underdog who eventually achieves success.[READ|SHARE]

Neighbors

Neighbors "Bro's before Neighbors"

May 15th, 2014

NEIGHBORS won the top spot at the box office its first weekend of release, which is another reason that this film should not be confused with the 1981 NEIGHBORS, which was John Belushi's last film.[READ|SHARE]

Brick Mansions

Brick Mansions "Totally Preposterous"

May 8th, 2014

BRICK MANSIONS is an action movie that might be of interest only to very huge fans of Paul Walker, the star of the FAST AND FURIOUS movies who was killed in 2013 in an auto accident.[READ|SHARE]
