Man of Steel Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
The Purge Movie Review by Michael Carter
Hawke did a great job, along with the rest of the cast. Things can get boring when you cram almost a whole movie into one set location (like here in the house), but between the script, cast and action the play-through is smooth. I did wish it was longer. Some points could have been explored a little deeper. Overall I really enjoyed this thought provoking flick.
Interview with Dave Franco & David Limacher of iratefilms.com
I don’t have a Twitter or anything like that. I feel pressured to get on Twitter, and I feel that if I’m on there people will be expecting me to write something every day, or be funny all the time. I’m really a private person, and don’t really find myself to be funny “all the time”, so I’m avoiding Twitter as long as I can!

Now You See Me Movie Review by David Limacher of iratefilms.com
Now You See Me begins by watching J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) performing some “illuminating” street magic. We then see Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) performing a hypnotism/mentalist act with a married couple in an airport. We then see Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) performing her act in a club in Los Angeles. Lastly, we see Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) doing a magic trick of his own in New York City. The four were brought together, but what is the reason for it? They soon discover they were brought together to form a group thus known as the Four Horsemen. The opening sequence in showing the four different personalities is a great way to start. The fact some of them know each other before hand, and their interaction is really well done. This is a great way to start the movie, mainly because there is humor and a sense of what is yet to come.

the final Wolfpack installment :(
Renoir Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
Renoir deserves special praise for balancing, albeit not flawlessly, an artist’s pain and fear as he tries to capture the last bright sunrises life has to offer before his canvass is torn. And, if nothing else, watching it definitely earned me some cultural cool points. There is nudity aplenty in this film, so be warned if that sort of thing offends you. But, maybe you could lighten up a bit! Impressionist students will get that joke!
What is YOUR Mission?
WIN A FREE BLU-RAY FOR YOUR MOM!
So, yea, your mom called . . . she wants a movie night for Mother’s Day! No, seriously, she loves Kris Kristofferson. She doesn’t care that you think he’s Whistler from Blade – to her, Kris is the bee’s knees as John Norman Howard in A Star is Born.
And while Joel Grey is immediately recognizable to you as Chiun from Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins . . . he’s done some other stuff apparently. He co-stars opposite Liza Minnelli in another little gem from the 70′s that your mom can’t wait to experience on Blu-ray. But, if you don’t hurry, some other mom will win the prize.
John Dies at the End Movie Review by H-Man of iratefilms.com
The H-Bomb: Dave (Chase Williamson) and John (Rob Mayes) were just a couple of typical, twenty-something slackers when they came upon a new mind altering drug called Soy Sauce. A pitch black goo with hair growing out of it, Soy Sauce can “open doors to other worlds” by giving its users an array of psychic powers, as well as making them able to see things normal people cannot… like strange, otherworldly creatures. Other side effects of the Sauce include turning sausages into cellphones and doorknobs into dicks… but let’s not get into that.
Mud Movie Review by Alyn Darnay of Chaos Films
The movie wants to take its background from Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” but it feels more like “Winter’s Bone.” It is a complex tale told in a sly quiet way that forces itself into your mind, because you’re compelled to find out what the characters are really all about below the surface.

This is the End Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
I’m pretty sure the guys were mocking themselves in this movie. It seemed like they had a lot of fun shooting this film, and I wonder how much of it was improvised. Some parts were so funny, I missed some of the dialogue, because everyone in the theater was laughing so hard. With a running time of 107 minutes, it did drag a bit. I thought they could have made more montages to show the passage of time. It was a fun ride though, you never know what to expect!! -
Movie Review: The Internship by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
The Internship has a lot of heart! Director Shawn Levy gives us something to aspire to achieve and reminds us that we need to provide more than just an opportunity to our graduating seniors – we need to have faith, and yes, hope. But, hope is a four-letter word if it isn’t backed by persistent practice, research and faith.
LOUD MOUTH TV - Acting Workshop

From Ron Maxwell comes the third film in his U.S. Civil War series. You have all probably seen Gettysburg and perhaps Gods and Generals, but I would wager only a handful of people have ever heard this term.
Learn all about this oft overlooked group from our nation’s history. As you recall the success of Spielberg’s Lincoln, think of those in the North who wanted nothing to do with the war.
After Earth Movie Review by H-Man of iratefilms.com
After Earth is co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, a fact that has been hidden from us in the marketing, as his name is nowhere to be found on any of the posters or trailers. It’s kind of fascinating to see how, over the course of the last decade, his name has gone from box office gold to box office poison, as his films became sillier and sillier, made less and less sense, to the point where he finally vanished up his own ass with The Happening, and studios have figured out that they’re better off just not mentioning his name. It’s kind of sad, really.
The Lords of Salem Movie Review by H-Man of iratefilms.com
Rob Zombie has always interested me as a filmmaker, even if I haven’t exactly loved the bulk of his movies. His debut, House of 1000 Corpses, is a crazed, candy colored acid trip of a movie that has, I’ll admit, grown on me, but initially I kind of hated it. Its sequel, The Devil’s Rejects, is a grim, gritty, and genuinely intense picture that, much to my surprise, I kind of loved. His two Halloween flicks I didn’t love or hate. They had some aspects I liked, but overall, Zombie’s style just didn’t jive well with that particular series.
Fast & Furious 6 Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
It's FAST AND it's FURIOUS - AND LETTY IS BACK!
Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) are an odd couple in this universe, with both more or less tolerating one another yet grudgingly admitting they are a fantastic team. And from the moment the action starts, we are given a glimpse of how each views their duties. Spock is always logical and by the book, even at great personal risk, while Kirk is always a seat-of-your-pants type leader. This film changes those roles to a certain degree, as Kirk is betrayed by Spock and loses his command of the Enterprise.

Iron Man 3 Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
If you like watching your heroes torn down, Iron Man 3 is your flick. But of the three, I still think Iron Man is the best of the series. Until The Avengers came out, it was my favorite comic book film from Marvel. Still, if you are hungry for an action-packed blockbuster this May, I can’t think of a better place for your butt to be than in a seat for Iron Man Three!
Solo . . . is coming!
Solo, the best soft drink out of Norway, has endeavored to create a spectacular cross-Atlantic voyage and this campaign is as inspiring as a real live Willy Wonka, someone will be the lucky recipient of one bottle for each nautical mile the bottle travels if they can pinpoint the exact location of landfall for this Norwegian long neck.
