7% The Choice (2016) "You feel manipulated, but not in the I-can't-help-but-be-moved way that these films usually work. By the time its finale rolls around, The Choice has completely undone its own spell. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 6, 2016
12% Regression (2016) "A disposable genre movie that cannot scare, convince, or enlighten. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 6, 2016
82% The Revenant (2015) " The physicality of DiCaprio's performance is certainly impressive, as is the technical effort that clearly went into the making of the film. But as a whole, the movie arcs toward tedium; we become less involved in Glass' ordeal as he goes on. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Feb 2, 2016
100% Little Men "Little Men has a melancholy edge, but it's not really a depressing film. For all the despair onscreen, what remains afterwards are its luminous characterizations and big-hearted filmmaking. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 30, 2016
75% Operation Avalanche "The earnest enthusiasm with which Operation Avalanche begins, and the paranoia and fear toward which it proceeds, chart the course of an entire nation. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 30, 2016
No Score Yet Sufat Chol (Sand Storm) "It's a lovely, deeply affecting film. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 28, 2016
29% Yoga Hosers "It will probably be widely hated. But sue me; I found it is a surprisingly fun, bizarre hybrid. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 27, 2016
95% The Birth of a Nation "More than a movie about a slave rebellion, it's about the difficulty of reconciling the great moral chasms between thought, vision, and deed. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 26, 2016
60% First Girl I Loved "This is a manipulative way to tell a story, to be sure ... but it's a pointed, appropriate one in terms of this film's overall effect. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 26, 2016
94% Manchester by the Sea "Its world is cruel and chaotic, but it unfolds with purpose and grace. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 24, 2016
100% Aferim! (2016) "Everybody in Aferim! seems to hate and demean everyone else. And yet, they all seem like parts of the same blend of cultures - not a melting pot, but sort of a stew - that reasserts itself throughout the film. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 24, 2016
85% Morris from America "This understated, generous film quietly sneaks up on you. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 23, 2016
17% The 5th Wave (2016) "It's like Lord of the Flies by way of Michael Bay, only not nearly as awesome as that sounds. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 22, 2016
13% Ride Along 2 (2016) "Ride Along 2, which picks up not long after the first film ended, doesn't mess much with the formula, except that everything feels more frayed and tired this time around. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 17, 2016
7% Norm of the North (2016) "It's got elements of Happy Feet, Madagascar, Despicable Me, Ice Age, and any number of other films. But most of these elements go nowhere. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 17, 2016
92% The Treasure (2016) "Slowly ... something changes, and the functionality of Porumboui's style gives way to an ever-so-slight hint of wonder. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 10, 2016
11% The Forest (2016) "Any compelling sense of unease is ultimately undone as the film gradually settles for tedious schlock. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 10, 2016
46% No Escape (2015) "No Escape takes the casual xenophobia of something like Taken, crossbreeds it with something altogether more noxious, then asks us to kick back and enjoy the ride. We don't. We can't. And the ride isn't that great to begin with. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 30, 2015
96% Mustang (2015) "[A] beautiful, harrowing film. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 29, 2015
75% Where to Invade Next (2016) "Presented as a menu of mix-and-match progressive offerings, the ideas gradually lose their power. They become little more than smug sound-bites. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 24, 2015
17% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) "It's all mostly harmless as far as these things go - lazy, sure, but harmless. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 20, 2015
31% Don Verdean (2015) "I think I chuckled about three times ... " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 12, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "The meat-and-potatoes Howard is uncomfortable in the realm of the spirit, or the metaphysical. He can film objects, and he can film people, but he can't quite film emptiness. The cosmic vastness of the sea eludes him. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 11, 2015
85% The Wolfpack (2015) "he Wolfpack transcends mere social-issue concerns. It becomes a coming-of-age movie with monumental stakes -- and a strangely vibrant look at the liberating power of creativity. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "Let Inside Out in, and it will wipe the floor with you. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
85% Steve Jobs (2015) "Boyle does something surprising with Sorkin's endless cascades of dialogue: He turns them into music. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
80% The Theory of Everything (2014) "The Theory of Everything may not tear a rip in the cinematic space-time continuum, but as an intimate drama about two people struggling with a life they never expected, it has real power. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
97% Two Days, One Night (2014) "The surface details may be different from some of their previous films, but Two Days, One Night might be the Dardennes' masterpiece. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "It's hard to do justice in words to Fury Road's nonstop, breathtaking action sequences. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
85% The Walk (2015) "There's something charming about the use of all this technology to depict what was, ultimately, a minor event. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "On some level, Spectre is a betrayal of the More Serious Bond promised in Casino Royale. But it's also the first Bond film in a long time that actually lets you have fun with it. " ‐ Nashville Scene
Posted Dec 7, 2015
73% Youth (2015) "Though often beautiful, this is an emotionally paralyzed film about emotionally paralyzed people. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 4, 2015
77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "The resulting film is amiable, pretty, and charming in all the right ways -- even if it ultimately settles for a fairly typical tale of a late bloomer finding his way. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 25, 2015
97% Welcome To Leith (2015) "Welcome to Leith is a sober, terrifying look at the very real monsters roaming the quiet countryside. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 23, 2015
83% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Goodnight Mommy is a very disquieting, very suspenseful film, but proceed with caution. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 23, 2015
20% Love the Coopers (2015) "It's just as often manipulative and contrived, but Jessie Nelson's film sells itself well. There's care in the details, and the characters often feel like actual people. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 17, 2015
31% By The Sea (2015) "A marital drama filled with long, immaculately shot pauses and often tin-eared dialogue, it's perplexing and wildly imperfect. But there's something here that's quite powerful if you get on its wavelength. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 12, 2015
100% Of Men And War (2015) "What emerges is a tapestry of despair, one defined by its persistence. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 9, 2015
96% Theeb (2015) "The desert in Theeb feels intimate, rough, real. You can run your hands through the sand and feel the flies on your face. That realism extends to the characters as well, thankfully. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 9, 2015
87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "Somehow, this Peanuts feels familiar, even cozy. I can't make any great claims for it, but it feels like the return of an old friend. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 8, 2015
93% Sembene! (2015) "The result is an enormously moving portrait of the profound way that art can transform those who come in contact with it. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 2, 2015
96% The Armor Of Light (2015) "The only time I've cried more during a movie than the first time I saw The Armor of Light was probably the second time I saw The Armor of Light. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 1, 2015
44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "The gags are mostly puerile and uninspired - like the film was dreamed up by a bunch of tired, wired 13-year-olds; it has their insistence but little of their invention. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 1, 2015
73% Suffragette (2015) "It's a movie with a lot of things to say, but walking out, you feel like you're still waiting for it to say them. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 29, 2015
88% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "Bone Tomahawk is terrifying and strange, to be sure, but it's the old-fashioned veneer that makes it beautiful. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 26, 2015
50% Tokyo Tribe (2015) "There's a strange power to Sion's filmmaking that goes beyond the midnight-movie oddness of the plot. He likes the silly and the strange, but he has the style of a Spielberg; he can work wonders with a camera and make the dumbest ideas work. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 25, 2015
13% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) "If only Ghost Dimension spent more time in the ghost dimension and less time in the people dimension, we might have had something. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 24, 2015
16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) "Watching The Last Witch Hunter is like sitting by while someone else plays a game whose coolness eludes us. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 23, 2015
76% Goosebumps (2015) "It's a cheerful, nasty delight. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 16, 2015
69% Crimson Peak (2015) "Crimson Peak is a fascinating conundrum of a movie. I was close to hating it as I walked out of the theater, but images and moments from it have stayed with me. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
