8.95/10 90% A Most Wanted Man (2014) " An intelligent slow-burn thriller. Philip Seymour Hoffman knocks it out of the ballpark. Your patience will be rewarded. It wouldn't be surprising if he were nominated later this year for a posthumous Best Actor award. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jul 27, 2014
5/10 38% Beneath (2014) " f there were double features nowadays, The DescentBeneath be the underwhelming B movie. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jul 27, 2014
10/10 99% Boyhood (2014) " Genuinely poignant, profound and relatable with a strong beginning, middle and end. Why can't Hollywood make films like this anymore? Now critics need only worry about their other 9 Best Films of the Year. " — NYC Movie Guru

9.1/10 82% Begin Again (2014) " The first great American film this year that can't be turned into a video game. It deserves to become a sleeper hit, and has a well-balanced blend of commercial and art-house qualities. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jun 28, 2014
9.49/10 91% The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) " A potent, frightening and poignant reminder of how easy it is to lose democracy in modern day America. If this were 1930s Germany, DOJ prosecutors Carmen Ortiz and Stephen Heymann would probably work for Adolf Hitler." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jun 26, 2014

9.15/10 85% Coherence (2014) " Complex, suspenseful, unpredictable and increasingly profound. One of those rare sci-fi movies with a brain. You'll want to see it again." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jun 18, 2014

Posted May 16, 2014
6.12 29% SX_Tape (2014) " Its creepy setting, lighting and sound designs deliver some scares, but there's not enough in terms of surprises or cleverness. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted May 16, 2014

Posted May 14, 2014
7.75/10 61% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Genuinely heartwarming, uplifting and wholesome. It's a pleasantly diverting antidote to the many loud, shallow and action-packed summer blockbusters. An ideal sports drama for the entire family." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted May 14, 2014

Posted Mar 7, 2014
8.05/10 100% 7 Boxes (2014) " A suspense thriller grounded in social realism. It's yet another example of how the most effective suspense thrillers are usually found outside of Hollywood and with much lower budgets." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Mar 1, 2014

Posted Feb 14, 2014
