79% The Theory of Everything (2014) "Eddie Redmayne is so convincing as famous physicist Stephen Hawking that you will likely be unable to separate the two men in your mind once this genuinely moving, if slightly maudlin, film flickers to a finish. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
89% The Imitation Game (2014) "The Imitation Game has finally given Turing's remarkable legacy the broad cinematic respect it merits by showcasing it proudly in one of the five best films of the year. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

93% Birdman (2014) "Even if you don't like Birdman, you will be unable to forget its unique ability to disguise meticulous, well-rehearsed craftsmanship as irresistible improvisation. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 2, 2015
1/5 92% Dear White People (2014) "Dear white people (and members of all other races), avoid this movie, as it doesn't do much more for race relations than Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac did for the issue of sexual addiction. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 21, 2014
3/5 87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "A surprisingly touching, if not particularly original, dramedy ... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 24, 2014
2/5 62% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014) "All I'm left with from Them are the memories of a great-but-squandered premise and a film so uninspired in its editing and rambling in its presentation that it, like its title character, almost disappears. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 17, 2014
4/5 98% Boyhood (2014) "Despite the wrinkles in Linklater's time tapestry, he has given us one of the most memorable movies of the year, and probably his own masterpiece. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

4/5 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "A Most Wanted Man is a smart, gripping thriller that carefully navigates its way through subtle twists and delicious ambiguity. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/5 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) "Only Lovers is on par with Jarmusch's Down by Law, which also failed to capitalize on its considerable strengths. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 13, 2014
1/5 59% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) ""How awful that everything has to be so trivial," Joe says. Maybe life has to be trivial, but movies don't, unless you're a certain Danish director who wants to force his psychosis on the viewing public. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 66% The Railway Man (2014) "The Railway Man is uneven, choppy and unimpactful at times, but the slow pacing and melodrama work fairly well and build to an interesting, competent climax. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 22, 2014
4/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) "The Lunchbox is honest and touching, and features a pitch-perfect performance by Khan, whom American audiences might remember from Life of Pi and Slumdog Millionaire. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

3/5 100% Levitated Mass: The Story of Michael Heizer's Monolithic Sculpture (2014) "Pray's film, though not as weighty or groundbreaking - no pun intended - as its subject, nevertheless does a good job of presenting both art and artist ... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 2, 2014
3/5 No Score Yet Once Upon a Time in Queens (2014) "Rodriguez's film would be nothing without Sorvino, as the veteran actor seems born to play this part. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 2, 2014
2/5 No Score Yet Forev (2014) "Instead of fully exploring the vulnerability and fragility of the characters, Forev offers too many ridiculous, unfunny scenarios on the way to a somewhat honest and effective ending. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 2, 2014
1/5 No Score Yet Finding Neighbors (2013) "Writer-director Ron Judkins' movie is so tone deaf, badly paced, poorly scored and amateurishly acted that the only thing you'll be finding is the door when you walk out early from this clunker of a dramedy. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 2, 2014
3/5 No Score Yet After Winter, Spring "This is one part of traditional farming that needs to die, but the doc rarely editorializes, and it deserves credit for that. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 2, 2014

Posted Feb 26, 2014
3/5 77% The Invisible Woman (2013) "It's a beautiful and melancholy tale told in a deliberate, intelligent style but, regrettably, lacking in urgency and passion thanks to writing and performances that often keep us at arm's length. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 22, 2014
4.5/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) "There's no cat, and the roof may not be made of tin, but it's plenty hot thanks to Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

Posted Sep 11, 2013

Posted Jul 16, 2013
3/5 85% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "Though the results make for an interesting experiment and prove that Shakespeare is mesmerizing in almost any form, Whedon's work is a bagatelle not quite worthy of the Bard. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) "Dorothy was right: There's no place like home. And that's exactly where you should see this film: on TV, for free, instead of paying for it in a theater. " ‐ Orlando Weekly

Posted Dec 18, 2012
2/5 88% Django Unchained (2012) "I've always wondered whether Tarantino would finally grow up. But after seeing his latest spectacular, bloody mess of a movie, frankly, I don't give a damn. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 18, 2012
4/5 70% Liberal Arts (2012) "An insightful, touching and amusing three-generational study that is anything but sophomoric. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 7, 2012
2/5 64% The Campaign (2012) "Simply runs out of good ideas and, like a nominee behind in the polls, starts throwing anything and everything at the voters/audience to see what sticks. Not much does. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 9, 2012
100% A Skin Too Few: The Days of Nick Drake (2004) "Despite being a bit flat at times and not taking us through all the highs and lows Drake experienced, the film succeeds by bringing us close to its subject, leaving us wanting more and not being afraid to be subtle. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 22, 2002
38% Mutant Aliens (2001) "Becomes the last thing you would expect from a film with this title or indeed from any Plympton film: boring. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
