3/5 68% All The Wilderness (2015) "First-time writer/director Michael Johnson falls back on coming-of-age clichés. But overall, his sensitive, moody camerawork and the cast's strong performances go a long way toward making the familiar feel fresh. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 19, 2015
3/5 81% Queen and Country (2015) "It works, but not entirely. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 18, 2015
3/5 71% The DUFF (2015) "Most of the credit goes to Whitman, who stands in, and stands up, for the DUFF in all of us. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 18, 2015
2/5 64% The Rewrite (2015) "The title of this Hugh Grant romantic dramedy feels like a challenge, so we'll bite: The performances are strong, but a rewrite - or two - was definitely in order. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 12, 2015
2/5 75% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "The violence flies repellently over the top, and the finale features an extended joke so insanely sexist it sends us out on a seriously sour note. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 11, 2015
3/5 60% The Last 5 Years (2015) "Stars Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan are earnest and often appealing in "The Last Five Years," even if the musical romance never completely finds its footing. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 11, 2015
3/5 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Johnson is a true find: She's so committed, she makes Ana's every discovery - in or out of the bedroom - convincing. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 10, 2015
4/5 78% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) "The spirit of the series remains true: cheerfully random jokes, blink-and-you'll-miss-them references and, above all, a silly, stubbornly sentimental streak that only the crabbiest cynic could dismiss. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 5, 2015
2/5 6% Outcast (2015) "Given the state of Nicolas Cage's résumé, it's faint praise to say this samurai tale is slightly better than most of his recent movies. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 4, 2015
1/5 40% Lovesick (2014) "Matt LeBlanc is so great on Showtime's "Episodes" that it's both baffling and depressing to imagine that this soulless rom-com was the best big-screen project available to him. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 4, 2015
2/5 84% Ballet 422 (2015) "For dance fans, any glimpse of the New York City Ballet's inner workings is welcome. Ultimately, though, this observational documentary from Jody Lee Lipes feels too much like an exercise in form over function. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 4, 2015
1/5 27% Wild Card (2015) "Does the curdled thriller "Wild Card" represent a brief misstep? Or is this the moment when Jason Statham, like so many action heroes before him, settles into self-caricature? " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 28, 2015
2/5 69% Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of (2015) "Every time the film inches into compelling territory, the band backs away to avoid offending anyone. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 27, 2015
0/5 12% Mortdecai (2015) "Johnny Depp has done so much for us. Let us now return the favor and pretend "Mortdecai," a disastrously misjudged career low, never existed. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 22, 2015
2/5 36% Song One (2015) "It all seems like low-key riffing, rather than a movie that makes any cohesive statement. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 21, 2015
1/5 52% The Humbling (2015) "With all the talent on tap - including screenwriter Buck Henry, who worked with Michal Zebede to adapt Philip Roth's 2009 novel - you'd think we'd get something better than this outdated indulgence. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 21, 2015
1/5 26% We'll Never Have Paris (2015) "The danger in writing, directing, producing and casting yourself in the same movie is that there's no one to pull you back from the cliff. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 21, 2015
2/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) "First-time director Julius Avery plays the action by the book. None of the plot twists - from the central heist to a distracting romance - is particularly persuasive. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 21, 2015
3/5 76% Match (2015) "One of the great delights of low-budget indies like "Match" is the freedom they offer high-wattage stars like Patrick Stewart, who gets to chew some serious scenery here. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 15, 2015
0/5 4% Vice (2015) "Here's hoping Bruce Willis bought something special with whatever cash he earned from this pointless, brutally ugly rehash of 1973's "Westworld." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 15, 2015
2/5 30% Loitering With Intent (2015) "The title may suggest acts of indecency, but if there's anything this mild dramedy could use, it's a little more raciness. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 15, 2015
2/5 67% The World Made Straight (2015) "A palpable sense of environment and strong performances from Noah Wyle and musician Steve Earle can't balance the extensive flaws in this unconvincing Appalachian melodrama. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 7, 2015
2/5 74% Beloved Sisters (2015) "The movie is gorgeous, awash in lavish costumes and stunningly detailed sets. But it's merely a wash thematically, leaving us with 170 minutes (!) of unabashedly grandiose fan fiction. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 7, 2015
2/5 25% Black November (2015) "Basinger, Rourke, Anne Heche, Vivica A. Fox, Akon and Wyclef Jean all appear lost or disengaged in bit parts that give a B-movie feel to a political passion project. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 7, 2015
4/5 72% American Sniper (2015) "The best movies are ever-shifting, intelligent and open-hearted enough to expand alongside an audience. "American Sniper," Clint Eastwood's harrowing meditation on war, is built on this foundation of uncommon compassion. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 22, 2014
3/5 46% The Gambler (2014) "Whether Wahlberg's been miscast or misdirected, we never buy him as a desperate addict. Still, the movie is so quick and cool that for much of the time, we barely notice how little is actually at stake. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 22, 2014
3/5 71% Into the Woods (2014) "The life lessons are delivered with insight and heart, the rightfully beloved music is well handled and the cast is so enthusiastic that we can excuse some rough patches. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 19, 2014
3/5 72% Big Eyes (2014) ""Big Eyes" is still a compelling film, well presented and solidly performed by leads Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. But more weirdness would have done wonders. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 18, 2014
3/5 60% Goodbye to All That (2014) "Despite its flaws, the first feature from "Junebug" writer Angus MacLachlan is a heartfelt, bittersweet and often amusing portrait of early middle-age. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 18, 2014
2/5 27% Annie (2014) "For all the talent involved, the overall effect is surprisingly flat. Foxx appears disconnected, Byrne is wasted and a painfully hammy Diaz seems to be in another movie altogether. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 17, 2014
4/5 98% Mr. Turner (2014) "Leigh and lead Timothy Spall make full use of their canvas, creating a sprawling portrayal of a wonderfully messy personality. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 17, 2014
3/5 45% Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks (2014) "Seidelman lacquers this predictable plot with a sitcommish sheen, but that's where we see the value of great casting. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 11, 2014
4/5 73% Inherent Vice (2015) "Phoenix's extraordinary performance pulls the movie's infinite strands together. But this twisty tale takes so many foggy turns that you'll want to approach it with a plan. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 10, 2014
1/5 18% Free the Nipple (2014) "The movie is so tone deaf, and travels so far from its original feminist ideals, that it's painful to watch. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 10, 2014
1/5 29% The Captive (2014) "Surely an Oscar-nominated filmmaker like Atom Egoyan ("The Sweet Hereafter") can do better than this nasty and unconvincing thriller. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 10, 2014
3/5 86% Red Knot (2014) "It's no surprise that first-time director Scott Cohen is a nature photographer by trade: he's made one of the most gorgeous movies you'll see this year. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2014
2/5 41% Comet (2014) "The actors give their all, and Esmail's got an interesting directorial approach. But his own misguided script continually pulls this starry-eyed project down. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 4, 2014
3/5 89% Still Alice (2015) ""Still Alice" is hampered by both an unimaginative script and ordinary direction, but it's a serious Oscar contender. Why? Because Julianne Moore is in the lead. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 3, 2014
3/5 90% Wild (2014) "A biopic that is both visually engaging and emotionally compelling. But it's hard to shake the feeling of careful ambition that keeps everything moving forward so neatly. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 1, 2014
3/5 90% The Imitation Game (2014) "There's an algorithm for making an Oscar-ready prestige picture - and "The Imitation Game" follows it obsessively. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 24, 2014
4/5 90% The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2014) "This seemingly ordinary biographical documentary about the retiring animation master unfolds, at a deceptively gentle pace, into a work of immense beauty. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 24, 2014
3/5 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) "Granted, it's no classic, but a sassy script and good-natured voice work from Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich should keep kids and grownups entertained over the holidays. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 24, 2014
3/5 90% Food Chains (2014) "Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2014
1/5 0% Reach Me (2014) "The excessive plotlines are sloppily written and choppily edited, while the acting is almost uniformly subpar. Worse, the concept itself is bafflingly empty. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 19, 2014
1/5 10% All Relative (2014) "Does Hollywood have so little to offer women that well-regarded actresses feel obliged to accept demeaning indies like this flatly unfunny, morally vacant comedy? " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 19, 2014
3/5 82% The Homesman (2014) "There's a thrilling undercurrent of rebellion in the way this straightforward, seemingly old-fashioned Western takes up the feminist cause. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 13, 2014
1/5 16% A Merry Friggin' Christmas (2014) "The actors all commit, but it's frustrating to see how little material they're given. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 13, 2014
