Director Brett Ratner throws his usual brand of blockbuster cinema at the screen, but it is Dwayne Johnson's acting that carries this film.

The Purge: Anarchy works hard on social issues and character depth while missing out on actual purging.
A raunchy, B-movie comedy that plays it too safe. Sex Tape is like the kiddie roller coaster at a Six Flags theme park: slow, generic, but just enough to keep you somewhat entertained.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is by far the best summer blockbuster of the year and one of the best films this year. The visual effects and story were on par with the symbolic meanings throughout the entire film and the excellent acting. However, every film has its flaws.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the Empire Strikes Back in the Planet of the Apes franchise. That's to put it as simple as possible.

The current census is, Transformers: Age of Extinction is more of the same. Sadly, it's worse than that. I'm not critical of all the films in this deathly franchise. I really enjoyed Transformers (2007). Thought it was a good film. How did the franchise get worse after that? Age of Extinction is the pinnacle of what's wrong with Michael Bay and the Hollywood studio system.

Snowpiercer is ambitious, fun, and cinematically adoring. For the most part, Bong Joon-ho creates a darling masterpiece that you will want to watch over and over again.

Tammy is a forgettable Melissa McCarthy romp about finding yourself, that outlasts its stay with lengthy jokes and a story that strays from its plot every chance it gets.

Just when you thought you've seen it all. Transformers: Age of Extinction is the epitome of film. It's hard to qualify this as a film. I would just say it's one large advertisement for Transformers toys and Bud Light, or a bunch of random robot battles mashed together.
