8% Aloft (2015) "Aloft is ultimately a movie about our need to keep moving and searching. And at times, it's quite a lovely one. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 22, 2015
8% The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) "About halfway through the film, I realized I would be way more interested in a film about the making of Human Centipede 3 than I was in Human Centipede 3. But I don't want to give Six any ideas. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 22, 2015
84% When Marnie Was There (2015) "When Marnie Was There may start off a bit awkwardly, but it'll have you bathing in your own tears by the time it's over. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 22, 2015
33% Poltergeist (2015) "This new Poltergeist isn't anything special ... But it's not a travesty, and that feels like cause for brief celebration. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 22, 2015
91% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) "There are three reasons to see I'll See You in My Dreams. Blythe Danner is Reason No. 1. She also happens to be Reasons Nos. 2 and 3. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 20, 2015
7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "You could easily imagine these two in a sharper, edgier comedy. Maybe, if Hot Pursuit is a hit, the filmmakers can take a mulligan and reunite them for a faster, funnier sequel. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 8, 2015
43% The D Train (2015) "The last act of The D Train becomes a hilarious, deeply weird, and ultimately touching medley of delusion, humiliation, and friendship. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 8, 2015
74% Far from Men (2015) "What makes it work is the solemn efficiency of director David Oelhoffen's storytelling and the quiet intensity of the two leads: The rough tenderness of Mortensen's gaze plays off well against Kateb's conflicted demeanor. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 1, 2015
69% Welcome to Me (2015) "I'm not even sure it can be called a movie; it feels like a setup and a character in search of a story. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 1, 2015
61% The Water Diviner (2015) "It's clear that Russell Crowe has poured his heart and soul into the historical romance The Water Diviner, his first feature as a director. If only the film were better. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 24, 2015
54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "The Age of Adaline has a fundamental weakness: The tepid romance is supposed to structure everything else, so the film feels disjointed - a series of good, sometimes even great scenes in search of an organizing principle. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 24, 2015
93% Monkey Kingdom (2015) "This may be an unabashed, Disneyfied version of nature. But it's also fun, touching, and expertly assembled. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 17, 2015
69% The Dead Lands (2015) "It feels like a typical action movie that's been sawed off and sanded down - its blunt edges sharpened, its soft center drained out. It's not particularly original, but it is mean, relentless, and bracing. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 17, 2015
6% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) "Nobody was expecting much from Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, but did it have to be this unimaginative and lifeless? " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 17, 2015
97% Black Souls (2015) "It may not quite have the explosive charm of some of the classics, but Black Souls is an elegant, unsettling addition to the gangster-movie canon. Get on its unique wavelength, and you may find it transfixing. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 12, 2015
28% The Longest Ride (2015) "Look, it's easy to laugh at this stuff - that's part of the game, in fact. To buy into these movies, you have to buy into the silliness. But The Longest Ride, for all its ridiculousness, comes by its emotions honestly. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 10, 2015
9% Kill Me Three Times (2015) "How do you cast Simon Pegg in a movie and then do virtually nothing with him? " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 10, 2015
81% Ned Rifle (2015) "The movie doesn't exactly go anywhere. Or rather, it dithers around, and then, just as things start to get interesting, it ends. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 5, 2015
42% Effie Gray (2015) "Fanning's controlled presence is ideal for a tale of Victorian repression. But as the film becomes one of quiet liberation, it needs more than her cool reserve. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 5, 2015
88% Lambert & Stamp (2015) "For all the Who's flamboyance and rock-god excess, the more fascinating story behind them may well have been that of Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp ... " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 3, 2015
74% Welcome To New York (2015) "This is not the kind of material for a stately biopic or a political drama. This is nasty, strange business - perfect for Ferrara, whose work often hovers between art and exploitation, between angst and sleaze. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 28, 2015
95% The Salt of the Earth (2015) "Given this fractured-three-ways perspective, it's surprising how smoothly The Salt of the Earth moves, how gracefully it switches back and forth between the personal and the objective. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 27, 2015
46% Home (2015) "A surprisingly moving tale of friendship and family, dressed up as an adorably frivolous sci-fi comedy. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 27, 2015
29% Get Hard (2015) "It feels like a bunch of off-color jokes the filmmakers have been trying to tell for years, and they've crammed them all into one film - with tiresome results. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 27, 2015
6% Accidental Love (2015) "Accidental Love is an utter mess, which is understandable given its troubled provenance. It's also fascinating. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 20, 2015
86% Backcountry (2015) "It's beautifully tense and well-acted - the kind of modest genre picture we don't see enough of these days. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 20, 2015
91% Jauja (2015) "I never once doubted that I was in the hands of a master filmmaker. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 20, 2015
11% The Cobbler (2015) "Throughout The Cobbler, Sandler himself seems more invested than he's been for a long time. But the rest of this ghastly movie lets him down. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 13, 2015
73% 3 Hearts (2015) "A romantic drama with the sensibility of a thriller, Benoît Jacquot's 3 Hearts is a good example of how a talented director and cast can elevate the most tired of concepts. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 13, 2015
96% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) "The cult is right to be scared. Going Clear is spectacular stuff. Literally. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 13, 2015
40% Two Men in Town (2015) "It'll be easy for some to dismiss this as a familiar story told all too coolly, but look closer and you'll see it has a raging heart. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 8, 2015
63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "Chances are, if you liked The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, you'll like the second best one as well. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 6, 2015
11% Unfinished Business (2015) "There's plenty to like in Unfinished Business, even though viewers expecting the debauchery of a Wedding Crashers will likely leave disappointed. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 6, 2015
70% The Salvation (2015) "The Salvation is visually beautiful, morally down and dirty, and simplistic. But it's marked by two haunted, quiet performances from stars Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green, who make [an] otherwise predictable slog worthwhile. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 27, 2015
14% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "A grimy, dopey, confused thriller that wastes a very likable cast. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 27, 2015
97% '71 (2015) "'71 doesn't always work, but when it does, it's a blistering, gripping tale of a boy lost in a war gone horribly wrong. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 27, 2015
14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is so bad it might make you question your allegiance to the original Hot Tub Time Machine. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 23, 2015
79% McFarland USA (2015) "Here's a movie that should be disposable at best, and racially condescending at worst, and yet it sticks with you. It comes by its emotions honestly and wins you over. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 21, 2015
71% The DUFF (2015) "Why is it so wonderful? Because wit and charm matter, and The DUFF has a good deal of both. The cast will be stars, the gags will be immortal, and you'll still be watching this movie years from now. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 20, 2015
35% Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2015) "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a mess, but it's the kind of mess only one of our greatest filmmakers could make. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 13, 2015
82% Results (2015) "Results feels so free-form, so liberated from the shackles of genre, that it becomes its own wonderfully alive and unpredictable thing. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 13, 2015
64% The Rewrite (2015) "The Rewrite wants to be a film about the messiness of life but it only has Hollywood clichés to work with. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 13, 2015
74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Kingsman is not a film for gentlemen. It's for us, the great unwashed, bloodthirsty audience. It's an immaculately engineered, laugh-out-loud appeal to our own depravity. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 13, 2015
71% The Voices (2015) "It's the most likable Ryan Reynolds has been in a film in, well, forever, basically. He's not necessarily good, mind you. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 7, 2015
13% Seventh Son (2015) "A strange movie that manages to be both ridiculous and bland, its chief point of interest is the spectacle of a great actor caught in career decline. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 6, 2015
38% Black or White (2015) "Black or White isn't so much an offensive movie as it is a pointless one. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 31, 2015
100% James White "The world it presents seems at times so slippery and uncertain that being lost seems like the only natural response. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 30, 2015
88% Slow West (2015) "An absurdist, melancholy coming-of-age tale that jumps from odd comedy to striking violence to stirring reflection. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 30, 2015
18% Strange Magic (2015) "Strange Magic isn't very magical, but it sure is strange. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 23, 2015
98% Paddington (2015) "Paddington is absolutely, positively delightful. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
