8.5/10 100% Manakamana (2014) " Breathtaking, unusual and transcendent. Patient viewers will be rewarded. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 17, 2014
8.21/10 —— Road to the Open (2014) " The family-friendly Road to the Open is the kind of film that Hollywood rarely makes anymore: character-driven, warm, charming, human, genuinely uplifting and inspirational. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 7, 2014
5.23/10 13% McCanick (2014) " A ho-hum B-movie with an A-list cast. Besides the solid performances, it offers nothing else to hold your interest." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 3, 2014
5.21/10 73% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " Breathtaking scenery and slick editing, but convoluted, unfocused and overlong." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 2, 2014
8.75/10 100% Being Ginger (2014) " A warm, inspirational and unflinchingly honest doc that's equally moving and uplifting." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 2, 2014

Posted Mar 14, 2014
8.87/10 87% In Fear (2014) " Genuinely scary and suspenseful because it leaves room for imagination and doesn't rely on gore or use a "found footage" device." — NYC Movie Guru
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
9.5/10 59% Hank And Asha (2014) " Hank and Asha might be the best modern love story since Once or Before Sunset. It's the rare love story that has both style and substance." — NYC Movie Guru

Posted Feb 24, 2014
8.0/10 58% The Returned (2014) " Refreshingly intelligent, subversive and psychologically terrifying. It's much more than your average zombie film. " — NYC Movie Guru

Posted Feb 14, 2014
8.2/10 —— Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage (2014) " A highly entertaining, invigorating throwback to the films of Ray Harryhausen. If there were any justice, it would become a cult classic. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Feb 10, 2014

Posted Feb 7, 2014
4.1/10 33% The Monuments Men (2014) " Boring, tepid and clunky. It's one of the most disappointing films in recent memory. You're better off watching paint dry. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Feb 6, 2014

Posted Jan 31, 2014
7.21/10 77% Enemies Closer (2014) " Outrageous, unintentionally funny, cartoonish, dumb and consistently entertaining---in other words: the ultimate B-movie that's best watched at midnight with a group of friends while intoxicated. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jan 28, 2014
9.78/10 99% Gloria (2014) " Warm, wise, sophisticated and deeply human. Paulina GarcĂ­a is a revelation. It's the kind of film that will linger in your mind for weeks. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jan 26, 2014
7.6/10 56% Mercedes Sosa: The Voice of Latin America (2014) " A genuinely heartfelt, adequately informative introduction to the life and music of Mercedes Sosa." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jan 26, 2014
7.98/10 92% Grzeli nateli dgeebi (In Bloom) (2014) " A tender, heartfelt and understated coming-of-age story that becomes slightly uneven when introducing thriller elements. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jan 24, 2014
8.2/10 20% Indigo Children (2014) " Elliptical, lyrical and provocative film and filled with visual poetry. It defies genre while remaining unpredictable and refreshingly un-Hollywood." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Jan 24, 2014
7.0/10 68% Visitors (2014) " An ambitious, visually stunning achievement. Mesmerizing and transfixing, but eventually becomes tedious and repetitive. " — NYC Movie Guru

Posted Jan 21, 2014
5.81/10 26% Jamesy Boy (2014) " Sans nuance and much-needed depth, the end result feels underwhelming, bland and undercooked. Up-and-coming Spencer LoFranco shows promise as an actor." — NYC Movie Guru

Posted Jan 17, 2014

Posted Jan 10, 2014
7.49/10 40% Commitment (2013) " An entertaining, well-cast action thriller, but it grows increasingly mindless, pedestrian, contrived and convoluted. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Dec 30, 2013
7.5/10 —— Hollywood Seagull (2013) " A refreshing, well-edited update of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull anchored by the bravura performances of Barbara Williams and Biff McGuire. Lara Romanoff sizzles." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Dec 29, 2013
9.76/10 94% The Past (2013) " Well-acted, captivating, nuanced and emotionally resonating. Not a single moment rings false. One the best films of the year." — NYC Movie Guru

8.21 40% Sweet Talk (2013) " Absorbing, focused and provocative despite its slight staginess. Kudos to screenwriter Peter Lefcourt and director Terri Hanauer for providing the audience with a romance that respects its female protagonist without over-sexualizing/objectifying her." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Dec 21, 2013
7.01/10 61% Hours (2013) " A lean, palpably tense thriller. Paul Walker gives the best performance of his career. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Dec 14, 2013

Posted Dec 13, 2013
9.0/10 83% The Punk Singer (2013) " Well-edited, invigorating and moving. It's more than your standard music doc. Hanna's humility, intelligence, courage, sense of humor and charisma shine brightly throughout." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Nov 29, 2013

Posted Nov 25, 2013
9.1/10 83% Home (2013) " Remains character-driven throughout and doesn't have a moment that rings false, pretentious or contrived. Gbenga Akinnagbe gives a genuinely heartfelt performance. If there were any justice, he'd get some awards attention." — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Nov 23, 2013
7.21 67% Detroit Unleaded (2013) " Sweet, but not too sweet, amusing, but not laugh-out-loud funny, and occasionally suspenseful, but not palpably. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Nov 23, 2013

Posted Nov 14, 2013
8.65/10 57% Lion Ark (2013) " Equally thrilling, enraging and uplifting. It'll make you want to stand up and cheer. If you're not moved by it, you must be made of stone. " — NYC Movie Guru
Posted Nov 14, 2013
