Transcendence is like watching a baseball player hit a home run only to get profoundly lost and confused after stepping on second base.

Under the Skin

This is a crude, rude, offensive film devoid of a single moment of charm or interest. It gives all aliens a bad name.

Captian America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America, Thor, Spiderman, Superman and Ironman. What’s next, Sen. Ted Cruz starring as a human Moby Dick?


Though it has enormous weaknesses, it also will strongly appeal to teenage girls looking for a heroine instead of a hero.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Beyond being a great scientist, Mr. Peabody was also a great father. Yet he had to discover the importance of saying “I love you” to his son, something that shouldn’t go unnoticed.


How can this film be both fun and intellectually stimulating? How can that be possible?


Director Spike Jonze has done some interesting work, but please do not compare this film to either Being John Malkovich (1999) or Adaptation (2002).

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Rating: Katniss Everdeen is a female Robin Hood, so get to the theater and watch the Sheriff of Nottingham’s knees start to buckle.

About Time

Rating: More pedestrian than sophisticated, it still produces a warm glow.
