Awful

The Purge: Anarchy [2014]

The first “Purge” cost $3 million to make and ended up making $64 million. I thought you should know this fact because it’s the only damn thing left for Hollywood to exploit in a franchise. This ridiculous sequel is more of the same, only less likable; Once a year, for […]

Think Like A Man Too [2014] ★½

Sequels are the curse of modern-day moviegoing. Occasionally you find a good one, but more often the second installment dissipates all the fun and sense of discovery that made the original a hit in the first place. That’s not the case with “Think Like A Man Too”, since […]

Grace Of Monaco [2014] ★½

Shush. Do you hear that? That’s Grace Kelly turning in her grave. Kelly, a former actress turned Princess, is one of the most iconic women of the 20th Century, if not the greatest. But telling her story is no easy achievement. Enter French director Olivier Dahan, who brought […]

Son Of God [2014] ★½

It’s difficult to review a movie like “Son Of God”. Some people may question my intentions, but I’m not here to start a religious debate. I’m here to review a film, and as a film “Son Of God” can only be described as a misfire. Writer/director Christopher Spencer […]

Reasonable Doubt [2014] ★½

In this boring thriller, district attorney Dominic Cooper (a decent actor) commits a fatal hit and run after a night of drinking. When Clinton (Samuel L. Jackson), a man who lost his wife and child in a deadly home invasion, is charged with killing the man Dominic struck, […]

Filth [2013] ★½

Nothing against James McAvoy (who was good in so many movies) or his director Jon S. Baid, but my patience drowned while trying to swallow this atrocity. McAvoy plays a self-obsessed bipolar detective who hallucinates, blackmails, boozes and drugs his way around Edinburgh, trying to solve a murder […]

Ride Along [2014] ★½

The first comedy of the year has a damn fine chance of being the worst. “Ride Along” isn’t just a lousy comedy flick, it should numb the brains of moviegoers of all sexes and ages. Before you start hating, I think you should know that I’ve got nothing […]

The Legend Of Hercules [2014] ★½

Another January dud. After last week’s horrible “Paranormal Activity”, “The Legend of Hercules” thinks it’s “Gladiator”. Talk about delusional. This is basically the story of Hercules (played by a dreadful Kellan Lutz), son of Zeus, who was betrayed by his stepfather the King and how he embarked on […]
