2.5/4 52% Frontera (2014) " "Frontera" is a well-cast, well-made, well-acted drama that you will probably forget about soon after you've seen it. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 5, 2014
2.5/4 100% Rocks in my Pockets (2014) " "Rocks in my Pockets" is a bold, rough-hewn combination of papier-mâché, stop-motion animation and hand-drawn images. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 3, 2014
2.5/4 36% If I Stay (2014) " [Moretz's] grounded, naturalistic presence goes a long way toward making mushy material palatable. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 22, 2014
1.5/4 18% Let's Be Cops (2014) " This notion might have worked perfectly well in sketch form, but stretched out to feature length - in a film that's overlong at nearly two hours - it grows thin, repetitive and wearying. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 17, 2014
2/4 45% Life After Beth (2014) " "Life After Beth" gets into the well-tread zombie-comedy territory in a clever and inspired way. Then it doesn't get out of it nearly so skillfully. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 15, 2014
1.5/4 21% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) " It's essentially a Transformers movie - a Michael Bay production complete with mass destruction, urban panic, white-hot lighting, inane quips, product placement, explosions and, well, Megan Fox. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 10, 2014
2/4 43% Step Up: All In (2014) " Even by the standards of this franchise-and this genre in general-"Step Up All In" is pretty laughable. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 8, 2014
2/4 68% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) " Despite being handsomely crafted, well acted and even sufficiently enjoyable, "The Hundred-Foot Journey" is also conventional and predictable. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/4 80% Get On Up (2014) " In Boseman's hands - and his feet, and his entire body, for that matter - he demands and earns our attention. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 6, 2014
3/4 91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " Director and co-writer James Gunn brings a giddiness and a wondrous, endless sense of why-the-hell-not? possibility that's reminiscent of Star Wars. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 2, 2014
2/4 29% 4 Minute Mile (2014) " 4 Minute Mile at least has the decency to acknowledge that it's aware of its underdog sports-movie clichés, especially the ones that made The Karate Kid such an '80s classic. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 1, 2014
1.5/4 47% War Story (2014) " There's minimalist filmmaking that's quietly intriguing, and then there's emotional detachment that's stultifying to the point of being nap-inducing. War Story falls into the latter category. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 1, 2014
72% The Ring (2002) " The Ring, about a videotape that kills people, is so full of inconsistencies and plot holes that I stumbled from a recent screening with few answers, and a ton of questions. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 25, 2014
1.5/4 18% And So It Goes (2014) " "And So It Goes" does what it needs to do for its target audience in thoroughly sufficient, mediocre ways. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 25, 2014
3.5/4 95% Snowpiercer (2014) " It's so hard to describe how amazing Snowpiercer is without giving away everything that makes it amazing. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jul 23, 2014
1/4 0% Persecuted (2014) " A heavy-handed and didactic drama which also manages to be totally mushy in terms of the message it's trying to convey. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 18, 2014
1.5/4 17% Sex Tape (2014) " It's a one-joke movie that feels like a one-joke movie. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 17, 2014
4/4 98% Boyhood (2014) " Linklater and his team have done something incredibly difficult and made it look effortless. The result is easily one of the best films of the year. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jul 13, 2014
3/4 83% Begin Again (2014) " The wholesome, hopeful, let's-put-on-a-show enthusiasm may sound hokey but it's actually infectiously joyful. At the same time, Carney roughs up the edges just enough to make this fairy tale seem somewhat accessible and realistic. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jul 12, 2014
2.5/4 23% Tammy (2014) " [The material] requires a light touch that sometimes eludes Falcone. But the intention is admirable, as is the focus on flawed female characters and the way they relate to each other. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 2, 2014
1.5/4 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Long before Optimus Prime hoists his hulking metal frame onto the back of a giant robot dinosaur, wields his mighty sword and rides valiantly away to save the planet once more, Transformers: Age of Extinction plays like a parody ... " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jun 29, 2014
1.5/4 70% They Came Together (2014) " Simply recreating what we know to be hackneyed and safe doesn't suddenly make it hilarious and surprising. There has to be a spin to it; there has to be some innovation. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 27, 2014
2/4 44% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) " A tasteful and formulaic biopic, visually lush but emotionally shallow. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 25, 2014
2/4 53% Jersey Boys (2014) " It's glossy and entertaining but also safe and conventional. If my father had lived to age 72, he would have loved this movie. This is your target audience. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jun 21, 2014
1.5/4 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) " Everything about this film smacks of laziness. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3.5/4 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) " 22 Jump Street is pretty much the exact same movie as 21 Jump Street. It knows it, you know it, and it knows that you know it. And that is why it's brilliant. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jun 14, 2014
1.5/4 32% Lullaby (2014) " A film like "Lullaby" should both enlighten and inspire debate. Instead, it feels simultaneously superficial and overbearing, albeit with a few moments that do indeed resonate. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 13, 2014
2/4 81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " "The Fault in Our Stars" feels emotionally inert, despite its many moments that are meant to put a lump in our throats. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 5, 2014
93% Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004) " At its core, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind could have been just another love story. Refracted through Kaufman's wonderfully weird prism, it's something truly memorable. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted May 30, 2014
3/4 75% Lucky Them (2014) " Toni Collette radiates smarts, humor and a world-weary cool in "Lucky Them." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 30, 2014
2.5/4 88% Elena (2014) " What began in beautiful, intriguing fashion ends up feeling surprisingly dull. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 30, 2014
3.5/4 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " The results are both dazzling and intimate, clever and - during one tour-de-force sequence - spectacularly funny. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted May 28, 2014
1.5/4 14% Blended (2014) " A decent movie might actually be buried here somewhere deep, deep down. The world will never know. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 23, 2014
3/4 74% Godzilla (2014) " This is what you get, San Francisco, with all your douchey, flashy, dot-com money: You get stomped on by Godzilla. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted May 18, 2014
3/4 92% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) " Johnsen intimately chronicles the fascinating push-pull of Ai's daily existence: the man he truly is now contrasted with the man he hopes to become once again. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 16, 2014
48% Bad News Bears (2005) " Billy Bob Thornton has proven he can do pretty much anything, but he simply does not look haggard, washed-up or miserable enough to be a believable Morris Buttermaker, the role Walter Matthau immortalized. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted May 13, 2014
54% Mr. 3000 (2004) " Bernie Mac plays a baseball-star version of his corrosive TV-show persona in Mr. 3000, a comedy that's essentially an extended ad for ESPN. Ironically, though, the insertion of real-life media provides the film's few laughs. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted May 12, 2014
2.5/4 73% Neighbors (2014) " The young married couple does something cruel, and then the idiot frat guys next door respond, and back and forth it goes. I laughed, but not uproariously and not often enough. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted May 10, 2014
1.5/4 18% Moms' Night Out (2014) " Basically, the moral of the story is: Don't go out. Because if you do, all hell will break loose - or rather, all heck. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 9, 2014
9% Catwoman (2004) " A soulless amalgamation of quick edits, computer images and swooping, nausea-inducing dolly shots. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted May 2, 2014
1/4 12% Walk Of Shame (2014) " It would all be galling if it weren't so lame. But Walk of Shame is notable only for turning the unendingly adorable Banks into an unlikable figure. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 2, 2014
2/4 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Director Marc Webb's follow-up to his entirely adequate "The Amazing Spider-Man" from 2012 feels even more like it's just been unloaded from the assembly line. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 1, 2014
3.5/4 91% Locke (2014) " In Locke, we ride shotgun with Tom Hardy as he makes a fateful nighttime drive to London. He is the only person we see on screen for the entire film. There are worse ways to spend 90 minutes. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Apr 28, 2014
2/4 23% The Other Woman (2014) " While "The Other Woman" raises some thoughtful questions about independence, identity and the importance of sisterhood, ultimately it would rather poop on them and then throw them through a window in hopes of the getting the big laugh. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2.5/4 26% Brick Mansions (2014) " The action may be serious, but "Brick Mansions" doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a ridiculous movie that has the decency to acknowledge that it's ridiculous. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
3/4 73% The German Doctor (2014) " The restraint Puenzo employs here is an assured and refreshing change of pace-especially given the horrific subject matter. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2/4 19% Transcendence (2014) " When it's all over, you will turn on your iPhone and ask Siri to find you a good restaurant for a bite to eat near the theater. And you will have learned nothing. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Apr 21, 2014
3/4 61% 13 Sins (2014) " Darkly funny and deeply twisted, "13 Sins" grabs you from its startling opening sequence and doesn't let go. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2.5/4 89% Bears (2014) " "Bears" could have used a lot more science; more substantive information in the place of wacky one-liners. Still, the images trump everything. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
3/4 61% Draft Day (2014) " Draft Day isn't even really about football. It's about coming into your own and finding clarity at a personal and professional crossroads. It's about doing your job. It's a day in the life. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Apr 15, 2014
2.5/4 66% The Railway Man (2014) " Throughout his career, Firth repeatedly has proven himself to be a master at steadily revealing his characters, and the way his Lomax eventually reclaims his identity before enjoying some redemption is gently stirring. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
