2/5 13% A Promise (2014) " The actors are smoothly professional and the production feels polished. But it's hard to recommend a romance without passion, no matter how pretty it looks." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 17, 2014
2/5 63% Small Time (2014) " Surely a big-time Emmy winner like Surnow can do better." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 17, 2014
3/5 43% Make Your Move (2014) " It's cheesy fun for sure, but fun nonetheless." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 17, 2014
3/5 52% Cuban Fury (2014) " Jon Brown's script, while good-natured, is overly predictable. But despite the challenges, Frost proves himself an unexpectedly nimble lead." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
4/5 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " This is a movie about the transcendent bond between partners who can communicate without speaking a word, so it's only fitting that the gorgeous cinematography perfectly captures the movie's emotional depths." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/5 66% The Railway Man (2014) " It's too intelligent to dismiss, but not emotional enough to inspire lasting passion." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/5 47% Rio 2 (2014) " We're grading on a sliding scale here. But if "Rio 2" is hardly Pixar quality, it's certainly better than the average animated sequel." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
1/5 62% Draft Day (2014) " Haven't Cleveland fans suffered enough? Not only have they never won a Super Bowl, but now the Browns serve as the center of Ivan Reitman's painfully creaky sports drama." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/5 44% In the Blood (2014) " Stockwell understands most of all that we don't need Carano to talk; we need her to kick ass." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014
4/5 88% Alan Partridge (2014) " Clear your calendar. There's no better time to get to know a character so obnoxiously stubborn that not even his own creator can shake him." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014
1/5 79% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " How anyone could make such an uninvolving movie out of such a fascinating subject remains its own inexplicable mystery." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/5 25% Goodbye World (2014) " Apocalyptic visions are no longer enough to shock us. By this point, if you want to imagine the end of the world, you really need to say something new about it." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014
1/5 59% Dom Hemingway (2014) " There's so little to appreciate in Dom that it's hard to figure out why we're watching a movie about him at all." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 2, 2014
2/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " It does have a weird, boldly ugly edge that makes for unexpectedly compelling viewing." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 28, 2014
4/5 81% Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014) " While there's little dialogue and no music, the naturalist filmmaking is anything but boring. The tension lends weight to the everyday business of being a young person with time on your hands." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
1/5 14% Refuge (2014) " Jessica Goldberg's sluggish directorial debut feels like a leftover from the 1990s, when dank indie dramas littered film-festival lineups." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " A committed cast elevates what is, ultimately, a gimmicky thriller. It dissolves into a puddle of blood-tinged hypocrisy." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 41% Divergent (2014) " Unimaginative and bland." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 83% On My Way (2014) " Predictable as the adventure may be, the company - and the countryside - make it worthwhile." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 21% Better Living Through Chemistry (2014) " It's tough to feel pity for a guy who blames everyone else for his misery, and even harder to appreciate filmmakers who encourage his entitlement." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 44% The Art of the Steal (2014) " Director Jonathan Sobol clearly understands the first rule of a good grift: misdirection. He packs his middling caper flick with so many known faces, it's easy to miss all the other familiarities." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3/5 64% Bad Words (2014) " For his directorial debut, Bateman returns to his bad-boy beginnings. And the results are predictably amusing." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
4/5 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " Congratulations, loyalists. Veronica's return is everything you've hoped it would be. It's so much fun you may want to put a few bucks aside for a sequel." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3/5 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " Burrell doesn't quite capture the wry deadpan of the original, but then, neither does the movie. That's okay." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 100% Miele (2014) " Golino shows impressive confidence behind the camera, tackling a complex story with patience and empathy." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 93% Journey To The West (2014) " Chow's movies are always as sweet as they are silly, a combination he once again balances - alongside cool effects - with typically deft irreverence." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 55% Interior. Leather Bar. (2014) " We see brief, graphic shots of naked actors performing sexual acts. But it's the conversations about what those depictions represent that truly provoke." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
2/5 33% Bottled Up (2014) " The intentions feel authentic, but not enough else does." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 91% Kids for Cash (2014) " It's worth seeing Robert May's vital judicial expose - not only to learn about the titular scandal, but also to appreciate both the highs and lows of human resilience." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
1/5 10% The Bag Man (2014) " What does John Cusack get, professionally or personally, from making so many mediocre movies like this empty, ugly thriller?" — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
2/5 19% HairBrained (2014) " Early potential fizzles away too quickly in this underachieving buddy comedy, which just barely skids along on the charm of its co-stars." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
21% Son Of God (2014) " He walks on water, heals the sick and raises the dead. But not even Jesus can transform "Son of God" into a compelling epic." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
2/5 80% The Standbys (2014) " Either Riggs needed to dig deeper or she should have included a wider range of personalities." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
2/5 29% Angels in Stardust (2014) " [It] has some offbeat charms. They are not, however, strong enough to carry such a heavy load of cliches." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
1/5 11% Barefoot (2014) " This ill-advised romance from director Andrew Fleming is the sort of indie lark that nearly drowns in its own whimsy. Wade in at your own risk." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
4/5 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " Every would-be director of a celebrity biography should be required to watch Chiemi Karasawa's delightful example." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
1/5 15% Endless Love (2014) " Shana Feste's flatly generic update manages to make Franco Zeffirelli's gauzy 1981 romance look like a masterpiece of psychosexual intrigue." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 30% Date And Switch (2014) " In its sloppy humor and unabashedly earnest expressions of friendship and romance, the movie feels like any likable, and generally forgettable, teen comedy. And yet with its casually handled twist, the genre ambles forward just a little bit." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
1/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " Mark Helprin's original novel had its well-earned fans, but writer-director Akiva Goldsman replaces Helprin's creative metaphysical musings with cheap sentimentality." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
1/5 5% The Outsider (2014) " Fairbrass moves stiffly through both the drama and fight scenes - as if he were underwater. Supporting parts in Jason Statham movies may be his calling, instead." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
1/5 25% Welcome to the Jungle (2014) " This movie's biggest audience will come from Jean-Claude Van Damme's fan base, and boy will they be disappointed." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
4/5 89% Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq (2014) " Classical dance great Jacques d'Amboise calls Tanaquil LeClercq's style a "path to heaven." And this lovely documentary by Nancy Buirski makes clear that he's right." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
3/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " Lord and Miller don't sink into cynicism. Their computer animation embraces the retro look and feel of the toys to both ingenious and adorable effect." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
3/5 100% Oscar Nominated Documentary Short Films 2014 (2014) " Each one of the current contenders is genuinely worth watching." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 61% Oscar Nominated Live Action Short Films 2014 (2014) " Each one of the current contenders is genuinely worth watching." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 100% Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films 2014 (2014) " Each one of the current contenders is genuinely worth watching." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/5 33% Labor Day (2014) " The credits say "Labor Day" was written and directed by Jason Reitman from Joyce Maynard's novel. But that must be a mistake, because surely this is a Nicholas Sparks movie?" — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 91% 12 O'clock Boys (2014) " Nathan wisely avoids explicit commentary. He doesn't need it: Coco's angry frustration, Pug's bruised confusion, and the police helicopters constantly hovering above the defiant bikers say enough." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 86% 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 82% 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
