The November Man "The November Movie"

The November Man "The November Movie"

THE NOVEMBER MAN might not be the worst movie I have seen all year, but it is certainly the worst spy thriller I have seen all year.[READ|SHARE]
The Identical "Cheap Copy"

The Identical "Cheap Copy"

THE IDENTICAL is not a very good movie about what might have happened if Elvis Presley's twin brother had not died at birth, but had been given away to another couple who couldn't have children.[READ|SHARE]
Lucy "100% Pure Entertainment"

Lucy "100% Pure Entertainment"

LUCY is the latest film from writer and director Luc Besson that is equal parts high concept, equal parts fast-action thriller, and all parts female protagonist played by Scarlett Johansson as Lucy.[READ|SHARE]
Magic in the Moonlight "The Magic of Love"

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is Woody Allen's latest film, and it has been getting moderately mixed reviews.[READ|SHARE]
Calvary "Depressing Through and Through"

Calvary "Depressing Through and Through"

CALVARY has been called a "dark comedy," and I certainly agree that it is dark, but I found nothing in it that I would call a comedy.[READ|SHARE]
Get On Up "Loud and Proud"

GET ON UP is the story of James Brown, known at various times in his life and career as The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, The Godfather of Soul, or as he preferred to be called by strangers and even friends, "Mr. Brown."[READ|SHARE]
A Most Wanted Man "Just One Fault"

A Most Wanted Man "Just One Fault"

Sex Tape "As Promised"

Sex Tape "As Promised"

SEX TAPE is a movie that resembles its title: lots of skin and boring story.[READ|SHARE]
Begin Again "Not Memorable"

Begin Again "Not Memorable"

BEGIN AGAIN has a typical setup for a romantic comedy, but the most untraditional ending ever for a romantic comedy.[READ|SHARE]
Life Itself "Tough and Joyous"

Life Itself "Tough and Joyous"

LIFE ITSELF is a documentary about the life and career of Roger Joseph Ebert, perhaps the most popular, famous, and successful film critic, who died April 4, 2013, at 70, and it is based on Ebert's autobiography of the same name.[READ|SHARE]
