3/5 84% Run & Jump (2014) " Peake provides the solid center for a movie that would otherwise melt into indie formula." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 23, 2014
3/5 81% G.B.F. (2014) " Director Darren Stein clearly has some serious themes in mind, even as most of his characters exhibit all the brain cells of amoebae." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 23, 2014
1/5 22% Gimme Shelter (2014) " From an artistic perspective, Ron Krauss' heavy-handed drama, Gimme Shelter, fails almost entirely." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 23, 2014
2/5 36% Summer in February (2014) " Cooper stomps around ineffectually, Stevens makes for a blandly tame suitor, and Browning is unable to ignite any chemistry with either. The scenery is stunning. But the swooning has all the heat of a midwinter's swim." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
4/5 80% Maidentrip (2014) " "Maidenstrip" is a clear-eyed chronicle of Dekker's record-breaking voyage. Think "All Is Lost," but real, and with a teenage girl instead of Robert Redford (plus a very different ending)." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
2/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " If you're looking for brainless action, hop in. But if you're aiming any higher, you'll probably want to find another ride." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
2/5 14% Free Ride (2014) " While this true-life odyssey should be the basis for a compelling drama or even a taut thriller, slack direction and a weak screenplay undermine the plot's inherent tension." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 9, 2014
2/5 28% The Truth About Emanuel (2014) " A lack of development - in both characters and storyline - will likely leave you feeling duped." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 9, 2014
14% Dumbbells (2014) " [A] crude, exhaustingly inane comedy ..." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " If you embrace the overkill, you'll enjoy it. But if extravagance isn't your thing, move swiftly on to something lighter and more digestible." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 27, 2013
3/5 76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " Directed tastefully by Ralph Fiennes, "The Invisible Woman" is very lovely to look at. But it lives up to its own title too well." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 24, 2013
1/5 30% Grudge Match (2013) " In the end, this is no Ali-Frazier grudge match. It's more like Larry Holmes coming out of retirement to make $3 million as Mike Tyson's punching bag. Depressing." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 23, 2013
4/5 97% The Selfish Giant (2013) " Both a tender ode to childhood and a wrenching eulogy for lost innocence." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 19, 2013
4/5 94% The Past (2013) " "The Past" is not as nuanced as its predecessor - and not as impactful, either. But this is still far more complex than most family dramas." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 19, 2013
5/5 94% Her (2014) " A heartrending romance that will ring true for all those who've found, lost, or are still impatiently awaiting their own soul mate." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 18, 2013
3/5 92% Liv & Ingmar (2013) " Ullmann delivers some real insight into Bergman, who comes across as both a professional genius and a petty control freak." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3/5 75% What's In A Name? (2013) " What starts as an entertaining exposé of Parisian society eventually becomes exhausting." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3/5 44% The Unbelievers (2013) " These conversations are fascinating ... to those of you who share the scientific view." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3/5 61% Hours (2013) " Most of the movie elicits tense empathy, which builds to a genuinely nerve-wracking sense of dread." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " If you liked "An Unexpected Journey" last year, you'll like "The Desolation of Smaug" because, really, it's more of the same." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 11, 2013
2/5 20% The Last Days On Mars (2013) " Ruairi Robinson's derivative thriller renders even alien zombification as airless as a vacuum-sealed space capsule." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
1/5 36% Swerve (2013) " The story is uninspired, Lyons looks lost, and Booth makes for a bland femme fatale." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
5/5 95% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " It's a must-see - as long as you're willing to embrace the movie's melancholy." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
4/5 94% Blancanieves (2013) " We're not in Disney's world. Berger knows his Grimm, and he suffuses his entrancing fairy tale with a moving sense of melancholy." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 27, 2013
2/5 49% Black Nativity (2013) " The movie doesn't weave religion into the familiar structure of a comedy or melodrama. Instead, everything works in service to the sermon at the core." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 26, 2013
3/5 89% Frozen (2013) " It's a lovely story and mostly well-told." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 26, 2013
3/5 71% Weekend Of A Champion (2013) " Polanski and Stewart reunite at the film's end to reminisce, but it's the original footage that thrills." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 76% Bettie Page Reveals All (2013) " Mori gives us a delightful nostalgia trip, illustrated with lots of stunning, once-scandalous photos of Page in her prime. We even hear from the deeply private icon herself, in voiceover interviews recorded before her death in 2008." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 38% Delivery Man (2013) " Vaughn is one of those actors who tends to autopilot his way through too many mediocre projects. When he goes all in, though, it's impossible to resist his charm." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 92% Philomena (2013) " The way these two talents connect - and strengthen Frears' tenuous tone - is enough to soften any cynic's heart." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
2/5 61% Dear Mr. Watterson (2013) " Your money would be better used - and Schroeder's points better made - if you spent it on any "Calvin and Hobbes" collection instead." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
4/5 91% The Great Beauty (2013) " It's a glorious experience, one that blends both compassionate dismay and wry delight over Italy's own, eternal excess." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 68% The Best Man Holiday (2013) " The film does feel overlong and the tone is occasionally wobbly. But Lee keeps the pace generally steady, mixing comedy and melodrama in even amounts." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 27% Charlie Countryman (2013) " Thanks to a perfectly-matched lead, Shia LaBeouf, the movie makes enough impact to justify its existence." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " Remains loyal to Markus Zusak's World War II story without quite capturing its dark originality." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 41% A Case Of You (2013) " The actors are on their game, with Long digging deeper than he's usually asked to, and Wood showing more restraint than she often does." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
2/5 28% Ass Backwards (2013) " Raphael and Wilson are impressively committed to these misadventures, but it's a shame the movie is so cruel to the characters." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 71% Go For Sisters (2013) " The mechanical plotting fades into the background as the personal connections become increasingly compelling." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
2/5 45% Big Sur (2013) " With Kerouac declaring that "the only thing that matters is the conceptions in my own mind," we're still left waiting for the filmmaker who can take us there." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 36% Last Love (2013) " Not much happens in Sandra Nettelbeck's intimate family drama, but its well-drawn connections between lonely souls make an impact nonetheless." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) " "Diana" can be declared a success in one regard - its vacant inanity serves to remind us of the perpetual indignities forced upon this unlucky Lady." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
2/5 18% Free Birds (2013) " This cheerfully gonzo kid flick. It's no masterpiece, but if you're hoping for a family film that will keep everyone reasonably entertained, this will fly." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 85% Spinning Plates (2013) " Levy chose the sites well and does a nice job juxtaposing the owners' passions and persistence. All three restaurants have faced their share of trials, to say the least." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
4/5 100% The Square (2013) " Pulses with an immediacy that will leave you simultaneously enlightened and stunned." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
3/5 90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) " A fairly simple, unevenly told and expertly acted romance about two young French women in love." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) " Knoxville and the perfectly cast Nicoll have great chemistry throughout. But longtime "Jackass" director Jeff Tremaine consistently cuts away too quickly, undermining each joke in order to rush on to the next." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
1/5 29% 2 Jacks (2013) " Rose's apparent intent is to show how little of Hollywood's Golden Age magic is left today. In that, at least, he succeeds ." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013
1/5 6% I'm In Love With A Church Girl (2013) " There is no reason a film with an agenda can't also be engaging or thought-provoking. But what we have here is not so much a movie as a blunt Sunday sermon." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013
5/5 93% All Is Lost (2013) " It's just a guy. On a boat. For 107 minutes. And every one of those minutes is riveting." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013
3/5 76% Kill Your Darlings (2013) " Krokidas develops a nice rhythm - crucial for any film about the Beat movement - even if the composition feels a bit too meticulous." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/5 56% Escape From Tomorrow (2013) " Moore shows promising ingenuity in shooting parts of the movie covertly, within the notoriously restrictive Disney World resort. But his script never takes the same sort of risk." — New York Daily News
