The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Rating: 3.5 of 5   My review of the second Hobbit film is kind of vague and philosophical more than my usual analysis. Because there’s not much to say. This has the feel of a story pulled apart and so half…

Thor – The Dark World

Rating: 4 of 5  My review for Thor The Dark World is up. I don’t know if it’s the presence of Joss Whedon or the increasing pressure from the fans to release a movie about a female superhero but it’s interesting…

Wolverine

Rating: 3.75 of 5  Wolverine is one of those difficult movies to review because my reaction to it is not a reflection of the quality of it. I actually think it’s one of the better made comic book movies. You can…

Pacific Rim

Rating: 3.5 of 5  I posted my Pacific Rim review and I’m glad I saw it opening weekend. Because unique ideas are becoming so rare in summer blockbusters and this is a good one. a little scary every now and then…

The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger Rating: 2.75 of 5  
My Lone Ranger review or, an examination of when trailers lie. And I have to admit it’s not often that I’ll watch a trailer and get the tone of a movie so wrong. Even when they…

Star Trek Into Darkness

This review is not going to be fair. I just want to be clear about that upfront. And it's not because Into Darkness wasn't good; it just wasn't what I wanted it to be. I wanted it to be surprising and inventive. I wanted it to be smarter than I am and the dialog to be more clever than I am.

Iron Man 3

Marvel's Phase Two shows obvious signs of being post-Avengers. And not just in the characters and the ramifications they have to deal with (Tony Stark, perhaps most of all) but in the studio and writers and directors who have seen what a Joss Whedon superhero movie is and now have to be that good.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Peter Jackson is not Tolkien. I know I'm stating the obvious there but after seeing The Hobbit I'm not sure Peter Jackson is aware of this fact.

Red Dawn

I have to admit, I guess from the top, that I've never seen the original Red Dawn. But I actually didn't think this movie was half bad.
