The 10 Worst Movies of 2015

The 10 Worst Movies of 2015
Nobody sets out to make a bad movie.  I have no doubt that a lot of time and hard work went into making these movies, and that the filmmakers went into production with the best intentions.  Not everything comes together in the end.  And, that is especially true for these – the 10 worst movies...

The Top 10 Movies of 2015

The Top 10 Movies of 2015
This year, there was a seemingly endless supply of entertainment options that you could watch around the clock on screens big and small, where each week saw the release of new and interesting comedies, dramas, documentaries, Oscar and/or Razzie bait, and the sheer volume of product threatened to completely overtake our lives if we bothered...

The Visit and 7 Other Found Footage Movies That Succeed Despite The Gimmick
M. Night Shyamalan’s name has been so synonymous with crap over the last decade that it’s almost easy to forget that the guy once directed The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, two genre-bending classics that revealed a true visionary behind the camera.  After Lady in the Water, The Last Airbender, The Happening, and After Earth, I’d...

July is here, so it seems a fitting time to take stock of where we are and what we’ve seen, and run down my picks for the 10 best movies released in 2015 so far. I’ve seen 61 new movies this year, and while I always enjoy my time in theaters, it still means I’ve... Read more »

Family Movie Night Vol. 2

Family Movie Night Vol. 2
With everyone getting busier and schedules filling up as the year progresses, we didn’t knock out too many movies in February and March, so it made sense to do away with the monthly format and just combine the two months for maximum impact.  There’s really no rhyme or reason to any of these flicks (that’s...

Furiously Ranking All Seven Fast & Furious Movies

Furiously Ranking All Seven Fast & Furious Movies
About a month ago, I took it upon myself to re-watch all six previous films in the Fast & Furious franchise in preparation for this weekend’s much-anticipated (by me at least) release of Furious 7. The Fast & Furious movies aren’t perfect, and all of them are dumb in varying degrees, but I find myself... Read more »

Family Movie Night: A Tradition Begins
Don’t get me wrong.  Babies are great.  They’re cute and sweet, and it’s an amazing thing to watch them grow and develop.  But, they suck at watching movies. There are several perks of having kids grow up.  They play by themselves.  You can have discussions with them.  They have longer attention spans.  And, there are... Read more »

Hammervision's Bottom 5 Movies of 2014
Having just knocked out my Top 10 of the year and waxed poetic about what a great movie year it was, now it’s time to take out the claws, sharpen ‘em, and dig in. Most of you are smart enough to avoid the stinkers.  Word of mouth and sites like Rotten Tomatoes help weed out... Read more »

Hammervision's Top 10 Movies of 2014

Hammervision's Top 10 Movies of 2014
Every year, people complain that there are no good movies. Or that last year was better. But, I thought 2014 was an unqualified success. Our big-budget tentpoles had real depth, and earned some of the best critical notices of the year (Apes, Guardians, Godzilla).  A handful of scrappy indies (Boyhood, Birdman) really helped push the medium...
