Posted Mar 5, 2015
55% Focus (2015) " [Will] Smith isn't at his best here. The role of Nicky tamps down his strengths as a star, forcing him to rein in his outsized persona. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 26, 2015
79% McFarland USA (2015) " Stirring even when it is manipulative, the movie hits all the expected points without finding much new to say. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 18, 2015
13% Seventh Son (2015) " The surprise is that by genre standards [Seventh Son isn't] that bad-it's just that everything in it has been done before. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 5, 2015

Posted Jan 23, 2015

Posted Jan 22, 2015
34% Blackhat (2015) " The Sony hacking disaster may draw some attention to the movie, but Blackhat is strictly Hollywood hokum with a limited shelf life. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jan 15, 2015
60% The Taking of Tiger Mountain (2015) " A big-budget spectacle overflowing with patriotic action, the movie may strike Western viewers as too impersonal and propagandistic. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Dec 31, 2014
73% American Sniper (2015) " Far more complex and troubling than The Hurt Locker, American Sniper is still liable to be misjudged by critics who refuse to look beyond surface details. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Dec 9, 2014
90% Wild (2014) " This first-rate adaptation distills the book to its essence, turning Strayed's adventures into a voyage of self-discovery that is only incidentally about the outdoors. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Dec 1, 2014
100% The King and the Mockingbird (2014) " By turns lyrical and biting, winsome and cynical, the movie borrows freely from other artists while forging its own idiosyncratic path. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Nov 20, 2014
0% Reach Me (2014) " The characters keep bumping into one another like a cut-rate Crash, only to drift apart until the plot needs another twist " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Nov 20, 2014

Posted Nov 5, 2014
9% Revenge of the Green Dragons (2014) " An ugly, dispiriting mess, full of clich├ęs, bad taste and bombast. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Oct 24, 2014

77% Fury (2014) " Ayer's quest for accuracy and attention to detail really pay off in these [fighting] sequences, which are fascinating in both their logistics and their violence. But when it comes to characters, Ayer reverts to familiar stereotypes. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Oct 15, 2014
59% I Am Ali (2014) " I Am Ali may not be the definitive look at an incredibly charismatic athlete, but it does provide authentic insights and observations from the family he raised and loved.

Posted Oct 9, 2014
47% The Judge (2014) " As thin as it is, The Judge is wrapped up in a very appealing package of colorful Americana, solid turns from a superior supporting cast, and an old-fashioned score by Thomas Newman. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Oct 9, 2014
87% The Good Lie (2014) " The Good Lie is not a typical message drama filled with big statements and teachable moments. But in its modest, quiet way, it shows some of the dignity and determination of the refugees it portrays. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Oct 2, 2014
31% Men, Women & Children (2014) " Nothing if not earnest, the movie is also so preachy and square that it will be largely ignored by the very people it is trying to help. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 30, 2014
61% The Equalizer (2014) " Fresh paint can't disguise the shaky structure underneath The Equalizer, a routine spy vigilante thriller. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 25, 2014
63% The Maze Runner (2014) " The Maze Runner is a surprisingly solid movie, and its fans should generate enough interest to keep the series running. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 19, 2014
41% This Is Where I Leave You (2014) " While it's never totally grating, This is Where I Leave You fails to live up to its appealing cast or its quirky premise. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 18, 2014
67% Dolphin Tale 2 (2014) " Dolphin Tale 2 is perfect fare for budding marine biologists, and solid if unspectacular entertainment for the families who indulge them. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Aug 21, 2014
71% Red Hollywood (2014) " The directors make no pretense at objectivity... By limiting their examples to "filmwork created by the victims of the Hollywood Blacklist," they ignore a mainstream cinema that was considerably more complex than they are willing to admit. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Aug 14, 2014
60% Hercules (2014) " The best thing about Hercules may be how well it meets its goals. It's not the definitive look at ancient Greek demigods, but it is smart, exciting escapist fare that won't disappoint Johnson's fans. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 25, 2014
90% The Kill Team (2014) " Strong subject marred by poor narrative choices. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 24, 2014
66% Lucy (2014) " If the narratives never quite mesh, Besson still handles them with his typical verve. Lucy moves with a focus and determination that is bracing. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 24, 2014
46% Wish I Was Here (2014) " Because Braff is such an affable screen presence, it's easy to relate to many of his character's concerns. Unfortunately, his script, written with his brother Adam, settles for easy answers. A cynic might call it trite. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 17, 2014
17% Sex Tape (2014) " Everyone tries too hard in Sex Tape, a labored farce that's as generic as its title. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 17, 2014

Posted Jun 26, 2014
80% Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger (2014) " As this dense and ultimately frustrating documentary shows, Bulger is not only unrepentant, but claims he did not have a fair trial due to widespread government corruption. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 25, 2014
29% No Tears For The Dead (2014) " Although made with care and sporting impressive production values, No Tears for the Dead (released in Korea as The Crying Man) feels counterfeit, from its tired plot to its maudlin characters. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 19, 2014
53% Jersey Boys (2014) " Solid adaptation of the Broadway hit shows how The Four Seasons became pop stars. " ‐ Film Journal International
