4/4 90% A Most Wanted Man (2014) " Corbijn gives "A Most Wanted Man" the momentum of a thriller but Hoffman's subtle performance gives it the depth of a melancholy character portrait." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jul 24, 2014
1/4 5% Paranoia (2013) " A movie as generic and forgettable as Paranoia deserves a title as generic and forgettable as Paranoia." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3.5/4 99% Boyhood (2014) " It's close to three hours long, there's almost no plot, the star is someone you've never heard of and, yet, "Boyhood" is mesmerizing." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jul 17, 2014
3.5/4 91% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " The most thrilling entertainment of the year." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jul 10, 2014
2/4 23% Tammy (2014) " From scene to scene, "Tammy" rarely makes dramatic sense, probably because it plays out more like a series of loosely connected sketches, like you'd find on a middling episode of TV's "Saturday Night Live."" — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jul 1, 2014
1.5/4 17% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Transform your money into a ticket to something else." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jun 26, 2014
1/4 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " Download the music instead." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jun 19, 2014
4/4 87% Obvious Child (2014) " The humor gets dark but the future looks bright for Robespierre and Slate." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jun 12, 2014
3.5/4 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " I knew exactly what to expect but I still sobbed for about the last hour of it." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Jun 5, 2014
2.5/4 49% Maleficent (2014) " It's intelligent and well-made but I do wish it were more fun." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted May 29, 2014
3/4 92% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " Singer does a nice job of connecting the bleakness of the '70s with the optimistic spirit that inspired the X-Men in the first place." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted May 22, 2014
2.5/4 74% Godzilla (2014) " A drive-in would be perfect." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted May 15, 2014
3/4 73% Neighbors (2014) " For a movie that gets as much mileage as it does out of sex and vomit jokes, "Neighbors" is surprisingly smart about how people behave in uncomfortable situations." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted May 8, 2014
3.5/4 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Thrilling action and well-drawn characters make for a very satisfying adventure." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted May 1, 2014
2.5/4 23% The Other Woman (2014) " "The Other Woman" ends up like gnocchi: It's oddly shaped but there's good stuff in there." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2/4 19% Transcendence (2014) " It isn't a terrible movie, just a frustrating one that is far from transcendent." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Apr 17, 2014
3.5/4 86% Under the Skin (2014) " Whatever you think the movie means, its most important element is clearly Johansson's performance, which is simultaneously bold and subtle." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/4 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " By the time we've been treated to not just one, but two, mid-closing credits scenes that set up future "Avengers" movies, I was wishing they'd concentrate on telling one story capably instead of three or four not very well." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3.5/4 77% Noah (2014) " It's not perfect but bold, thought-provoking filmmaking rarely is." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3.5/4 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " "Vol. 1" is elegant and beautifully composed. The form Von Trier gives it seems meant to assure us that there will be something to learn in the painful chaos of Joe's life." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/4 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " It's not the funniest movie this year or even the funniest movie the Muppets have made, but it is a return to form for Jim Henson's beloved creatures. It's good to have them back." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/4 41% Divergent (2014) " If you're looking for a movie that faithfully reproduces the book, "Divergent" is the slightly unwieldy adaptation for you." — St. Paul Pioneer Press

Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/4 89% Le Week-End (2014) " If you liked the "Before Midnight" movies, I bet you'll go for this, too." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/4 95% Particle Fever (2014) " There are a few entertaining developments in the film, but much of it is dull." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2.5/4 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " If you are new to these people, it feels like it takes forever to get to its tiny point." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2.5/4 61% Generation War (2014) " It's an involving story and an intriguing view of history." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/4 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " Broadway legend Elaine Stritch is the subject of the documentary "Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me" and, quite a bit of the time, she also tries to direct it." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2/4 42% The Face of Love (2014) " Keep those expectations low, but fans of the two leads should enjoy seeing them in meaty roles." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 14, 2014

Posted Mar 7, 2014
3/4 69% Visitors (2014) " There's no plot or characters, but it's one intriguing image after another." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 7, 2014
3.5/4 94% Stranger by the Lake (2014) " Unsettling, suspenseful and sad, it's a movie that sticks with you long after it's over." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2/4 —— Death to Prom (2014) " It's fun to see the Twin Cities used so well in such a good-looking movie, but there are script and acting issues." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2/4 77% Bethlehem (2014) " "Bethlehem" comes off like a character study without much character." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 7, 2014
1/4 10% The Bag Man (2014) " Even if this is your bag, you can do better." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2.5/4 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " Following the lead of the '60s cartoon on which it's based, "Peabody" finds a clever way to appeal to both children and the adults who bring them." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/4 60% Non-Stop (2014) " Do the clues all fit together? Perhaps not. But for the duration of the "Non-Stop" ride, I had no problem stowing my disbelief in the compartment overhead." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 27, 2014
2.5/4 89% The Wind Rises (2014) " As long as you're willing not to ask too many questions about what's going on here, "Wind" soars." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3.5/4 89% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " You don't even need to care about art to be entertained by this clever, swift documentary." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 21, 2014
3/4 91% Omar (2014) " Abu-Assad creates vivid, relatable characters, but like "Paradise Now," "Omar" is more about a place whose people are so beaten down they can't see any way out." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 21, 2014
3/4 41% In Secret (2014) " "In Secret" doesn't judge its characters' behavior. What it does, instead, is show the bad choices they make and the terrible ramifications of those choices." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/4 81% If You Build It (2014) " If they build it, you should still stay home." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/4 29% Pompeii (2014) " It's not disastrous but it's not very good." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 20, 2014
2.5/4 49% RoboCop (2014) " Padilho ... again displays a knack for raising the emotional and intellectual stakes without losing track of the action or suspense." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/4 68% About Last Night (2014) " The leads are great, especially the hilarious Hall, and the humor is spot-on." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2.5/4 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " You'll either buy into the fairy-tale conventions of the story or reject them, and I suspect that die will be cast for most moviegoers within the first 10 minutes of the movie." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 13, 2014
1/4 15% Endless Love (2014) " Maybe the biggest disappointment about this new "Endless Love" is that the book on which it is based is a smart, beautifully written novel. Unfortunately, the remake is even less like the novel than the first movie was. It's also even worse." — St. Paul Pioneer Press
Posted Feb 13, 2014
