8.5/10 85% Under the Skin (2014) "In refusing to spoon-feed the audience information, Glazer's film instead burrows into the brain, the ambiguous nature of proceedings making it all-the-more beguiling. The result is a film that's hard to shake after the credits have rolled. " ‐ IGN Movies

7/10 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) "Rise of an Empire is a sumptuous feast for the eyes that's a worthy sequel to the action classic that doesn't improve on the formula, but does entertain for the majority of its run-time. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 5, 2014
6.8/10 86% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) "While Jarmusch's vision is an original take on the genre, it's also hard to fully engage with his efforts, the pace too stately, the script too self-conscious, and the initially intriguing characters ultimately outstaying their welcome. " ‐ IGN Movies

6.9/10 49% RoboCop (2014) "While Padilha and his team are to be admired for bringing the concept up-to-date and addressing concerns about drones [etc.]... they've taken much of the fun out of the concept, making for a po-faced and ultimately somewhat forgettable Robocop movie. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 6, 2014
8.5/10 78% Grand Piano (2014) "The best movie that Alfred Hitchcock never made, Grand Piano is a wild ride that features several enjoyably silly twists and turns and a grandstanding central performance from Elijah Wood. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Oct 24, 2013
9.2/10 63% Filth (2014) "If you aren't squeamish, Filth is a marvelously messed up festive flick that manages to be shocking, hilarious and ultimately quite poignant. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
