77% Bad Santa (2003) " Even when the film threatens to turn feel-good, it thankfully resists the urge." — Associated Press
Posted Dec 5, 2013
84% Elf (2003) " Sure, Elf feels a little too feel-good at the end, but what do you expect? It's a Christmas movie! Anything else would be the cinematic equivalent of finding coal in your stocking." — Associated Press
Posted Dec 4, 2013
2.5/4 89% Frozen (2013) " While the journey may seem overly familiar, the destination has some surprises in store." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 27, 2013
89% Shrek 2 (2004) " A rare example of a sequel that's better than the original." — Associated Press
Posted Nov 25, 2013
88% Shrek (2001) " After a 90-minute onslaught of in-jokes, here's the real punch line: Shrek strives to have a heart. Supposedly there's a message about beauty coming from within, but somehow it rings hollow." — Associated Press
Posted Nov 25, 2013
3/4 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " Director Francis Lawrence's film runs nearly two-and-a-half hours but it concludes so abruptly and tantalizingly, it leaves you wanting more. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Nov 24, 2013
88% Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) " Goblet of Fire is more effective in these smaller, more intimate moments than in the bloated bombast of its larger set pieces." — Associated Press
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2/4 38% Delivery Man (2013) " The schlubby, aw-shucks look on Vaughn's face in the omnipresent Delivery Man ads tells you everything you need to know about the ooey-gooey direction in which the film is headed." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Nov 20, 2013
3.5/4 92% Nebraska (2013) " Dern makes Woody as cantankerous as he is clueless, bobbing and weaving to avoid his inevitable mortality, but there's a purity about him that'll break your heart." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 15, 2013
1.5/4 11% Paris Countdown (2013) " That's a lot of stuff going on at once, all of which feels rather familiar but none of which the film ever truly gets right." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 8, 2013
2.5/4 28% Ass Backwards (2013) " As with any kind of episodic or sketch comedy, some gags land more effectively than others, although you'll likely find a line or a beat or an image that makes you laugh from start to finish." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 8, 2013
3/4 69% About Time (2013) " You may as well check your cynicism at the door, because Curtis & Co. are going to find a way to trample all over it - adorably." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Nov 5, 2013
2.5/4 57% Capital (2013) " The famously left-leaning Costa-Gavras is preaching to the choir in his indignation, but he does so in slick, brisk fashion." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 1, 2013
1.5/4 18% Free Birds (2013) " Everything about "Free Birds" feels perfunctory, from its generic title and holiday setting to its starry voice cast and undistinguished use of 3-D." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 1, 2013
2.5/4 49% Carrie (2013) " It is a timeless thing for all of us, the ritual of high-school expectation and heartache. Once again, as it did nearly 40 years ago, Carrie turns it into an experience of biblical proportions." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Oct 22, 2013
1.5/4 76% Kill Your Darlings (2013) " A sort of Muppet Babies version of the Beat poets ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 18, 2013
2/4 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) " "The Fifth Estate" feels unfortunately small and safe." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 18, 2013
3/4 93% Captain Phillips (2013) " The entire performance is one of the greatest in Hanks' prolific, varied career - a role that gives him a massive arc and the opportunity to show great range." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Oct 14, 2013
1/4 8% CBGB (2013) " "CBGB" ain't no party, it ain't no disco, it ain't no foolin' around." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 11, 2013
2/4 41% All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2013) " While some of the kills are sufficiently clever and gnarly, "Mandy Lane" is never particularly frightening. And the twist at the end raises the wee issue of character motivation-or lack thereof." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 11, 2013
87% 28 Days Later (2003) " What also makes 28 Days Later effective, and sets it apart from other thrillers, is that it makes you care about the characters." — Associated Press
Posted Oct 6, 2013
91% Shaun of the Dead (2004) " The pasty, scruffy Pegg shows a surprising amount of range for the unlikely hero of a zombie flick." — Associated Press
Posted Oct 6, 2013
4/4 97% Gravity (2013) " Believe the hype: Gravity is as jaw-droppingly spectacular as you've heard - magnificent from a technical perspective but also a marvel of controlled acting and precise tone. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Oct 5, 2013
2/4 —— Running Wild: The Life of Dayton O. Hyde (2013) " Pacing can be painfully languid, to the point of being nap-inducing." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 4, 2013
3/4 81% Don Jon (2013) " Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns the gym-tan-laundry routine into an art form with Don Jon, his vibrant and viciously profane directorial debut." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Oct 3, 2013
3/4 96% Muscle Shoals (2013) " It might have functioned even better as an hour-long TV documentary. But with such great music coming, one hit after after another, it's always a joy to watch." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 27, 2013
1/4 33% Wedding Palace (2013) " Yoo finds room for all of the obligatory bad first dates and fantasy sequences, montages and misunderstandings, a wisecracking best friend and overbearing parents. It doesn't appear that she means any of this ironically, or as parody." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 27, 2013
1.5/4 14% Baggage Claim (2013) " "Baggage Claim" is so archaic in its depiction of feminine self-worth-and, frankly, so insulting-it's amazing that it's coming out in 2013, not 1963." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 27, 2013
2/4 82% Prisoners (2013) " It's got lofty aspirations but it also wants to wallow in the muck - to thrill you and sicken you in equal measure while also being About Something. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 22, 2013
3/4 94% After Tiller (2013) " "After Tiller" takes the politically divisive, emotionally charged issue of late-term abortions and portrays it with grace, understatement and humanity." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 20, 2013
2/4 51% A Single Shot (2013) " An odd mix of beautifully bleak atmosphere and hammily mannered performances, "A Single Shot" is simultaneously understated and overpowering." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 20, 2013
3.5/4 83% Blue Caprice (2013) " Blue Caprice takes a true story of violence and panic and tells it in the most artful, understated manner imaginable - which makes its events even more powerful." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 16, 2013
.5/4 29% Plush (2013) " It feels so inauthentic at every turn, it's as if the film itself is unsure of what it's supposed to be. " — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3.5/4 89% You Will Be My Son (2013) " French director and co-writer Gilles Legrand shows great mastery of tone and pacing in his third feature, which begins life as a domestic drama set at a family-owned vineyard and slowly morphs into a tense thriller." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3/4 50% Mademoiselle C (2013) " Roitfeld seems constantly inspired by the prospect of pushing boundaries and expectations, and that, in turn, is inspiring to watch. " — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 11, 2013
2/4 67% Things Never Said (2013) " The film's stars ... are hugely charismatic individually and have chemistry with each other. But the soapy melodrama and ferocious, on-the-nose poems threaten to overpower their budding romance. " — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 7, 2013
2.5/4 31% Adore (2013) " Adore is, as my late mother would say in describing Sidney Sheldon novels, good trash." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 7, 2013
2/4 35% Salinger (2013) " It feels overstuffed and overlong, getting bogged down as it does in the minutiae of certain segments of Salinger's life without conveying a big-picture sense of what his actual writing was like. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 6, 2013
2/4 62% One Direction: This Is Us (2013) " This Is Us does what it needs to do for its target audience. But anyone looking for actual substance or insight will be disappointed and maybe even a little bored with its repetitive nature. " — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 31, 2013
2/4 67% Afternoon Delight (2013) " The moral of the story appears to be: Don't invite a stripper to come live with you in your home. Suggestion noted." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 30, 2013
1.5/4 2% Getaway (2013) " Getaway might have been enjoyable as a mindless bit of dumb, late-summer entertainment if it had been vaguely coherent. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 29, 2013
3/4 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) " Drinking Buddies is a crackling screwball comedy refracted through a low-key, mumblecore prism." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 27, 2013
3/4 71% Paradise: Faith (2013) " Scenes are dramatic without a hint of melodrama, so when a flash of intensity does occur, it does so out of nowhere and registers even more powerfully." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 23, 2013
3.5/4 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " "Short Term 12" comes from a place of delicate and truthful understatement, which allows the humanity and decency of its characters-and, yes, the lessons-to shine through naturally." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 23, 2013
3.5/4 89% The World's End (2013) " The World's End might be the best time you'll have at the movies all year. It is a complete blast: urgently paced, hilariously clever and blisteringly profane." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 20, 2013
1.5/4 27% Jobs (2013) " The irony is that a man who treasured innovation and sleek, stylish design should be the subject of a film that's so bland and bloated." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 16, 2013
3.5/4 79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) " A muted but always engrossing tale of young, doomed love." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 16, 2013
2/4 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " The unloaded gun is also unfortunately a rather apt metaphor for the movie itself. Kick-Ass 2 may look powerful, but doesn't have much real pop." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 14, 2013
2.5/4 47% We're The Millers (2013) " Stays mean and maintains a bit of an edge even when it threatens to go all soft and gooey. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Aug 10, 2013
1.5/5 46% Off Label (2013) " Co-directors Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher try to encompass so many people and so many angles in such a short amount of time, they end up breezing through them and providing glimpses that feel rushed and unsatisfying. " — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 9, 2013
1.5/4 34% The Internship (2013) " Similar to Eddie Murphy's hard right turn from daring and profane comedy to family-friendly romps, Vaughn and Wilson have gone all soft and gooey here. " — ChristyLemire.com
