2.5/4 60% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " Much of "Magic In The Moonlight" is a pleasure to experience, particularly if you're an aficionado of the sort of sophisticated, neurosis-laden romantic comedy that counts as one of Allen's specialties." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 25, 2014
1/4 0% Among Ravens (2014) " "Among Ravens" is, finally, a thoroughly noxious concoction." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 18, 2014
2/4 65% Alive Inside (2014) " Unfortunately, it's ... not a particularly good movie. In fact, at certain points it can be an actively annoying one." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 18, 2014
3/4 83% The Empty Hours (2014) " The movie has a small story but a big theme; the theme being experience, and it conveys the emotions and moods of its characters by taking things nice and slow." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 11, 2014
1/4 15% Rage (2014) " A dull, lifeless thing even in spite of its efforts, old-school grindhouse picture-style, to put an exploitation-nihilist spin on the dad-with-action-movie-skills-on-the-rampage boilerplate ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 11, 2014
3.5/4 74% Land Ho! (2014) " "Land Ho!" is both a small film and an unabashed wannabe crowd pleaser, but it's also one whose subtle capturing of behavior and longing resonates with clarity that stays with you." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 11, 2014
2.5/4 17% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Confounding. But not without its thrills." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 26, 2014
3/4 100% The Pleasures Of Being Out Of Step (2014) " Remarkably fluid and never lass than compellingly watchable." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 25, 2014
3.5/4 75% The Last Sentence (2014) " A remarkably full-bodied and frank character study that illuminates the old saw about the political being personal in a genuinely unusual way." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3.5/4 97% A Summer's Tale (2014) " Rohmer had an almost uncanny knack for using the mercurial predilections of the young as a launching pad for smart but not oppressive philosophical observations." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3/4 55% The Signal (2014) " Eubank's talent is not at all in doubt, and science-fiction mavens who embrace this picture will rightly be excited for whatever he turns to next." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 13, 2014
2/4 33% I Am I (2014) " People sometimes complain that flashy, ostentatious visual stylization takes them out of the movie; what took me out of this movie was its flat, lifeless, unimaginative and conventional visual style ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 13, 2014
1.5/4 50% Trust Me (2014) " Its perky poster notwithstanding, "Trust Me" is a putatively hard-edged comedy that promises to turn into something harder." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
2.5/4 63% The Sacrament (2014) " Gives enough unsettling atmosphere and upsetting gut-level shock that this viewer didn't mind too much all the stuff he wasn't getting ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
2.5/4 76% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) " It's pretty entertaining and at times almost educational-Gordon's account of how, and why, he created the category of celebrity chef is a short course in modern-day branding, for better or worse." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
1/4 63% Filth (2014) " "Filth" demonstrates that contemporary filmmakers would do well to fine new ways of getting their hands dirty." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 30, 2014
1/4 11% The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014) " Williams, of course, has been doing a gruff-turns-to-lovable schtick as opposed to any organic acting for more than half of his motion picture career, so his work here is what one might call dreadfully predictable." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 23, 2014
1.5/4 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " A movie that glories in the worst and most unexamined bourgeois-bohemian clichés ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 16, 2014
2/4 82% Fed Up (2014) " The information is arguably compelling, and disturbing, but something about the whole delivery mode turned me off." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 9, 2014
3/4 83% The Double (2014) " Within its first five minutes, "The Double" insists upon its bona fides with a will and makes you like it." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 9, 2014
2/4 52% Decoding Annie Parker (2014) " The movie's main point of value is in Morton's performance." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 2, 2014
1.5/4 21% The Protector 2 (2014) " Think about how bad the acting and plotting have to be in order to distill the impact of a Tony Jaa battle scene. If you know a little about Tony Jaa, that's kind of hard to imagine. I know. But trust me. Or don't." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 2, 2014
2.5/4 83% Belle (2014) " The movie is intelligently written and well-acted, but it doesn't sit all that comfortably between the two stools of Austenesque Romance and Socially Conscious Drama." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 2, 2014
2.5/4 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) " I squinted, I looked away, I sank in my seat, I shuddered. For this movie, that means "Mission Accomplished."" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
3.5/4 89% Locke (2014) " The self-imposed minimalism of the conceit challenges Knight to make a compelling cinematic work. And it challenges the actor playing the title character more." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2.5/4 63% For No Good Reason (2014) " I learned more about Steadman than I had known, and was glad to do so." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2/4 31% The Girl and Death (2014) " The sort of movie in which one character will say "Love destroys everything; love is an illusion" to another character mere seconds after the two characters are introduced." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2.5/4 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " It's not really a home run, but as an aging urban dweller it hit some notes both antic and plangent for me. If you're a fan of any of the cast members it might well do the same for you." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
1/4 7% Authors Anonymous (2014) " The only reason to watch this picture is for the novelty value of feeling bad for Chris Klein and/or Teri Polo. To each his own, but my recommendation is "pass."" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
1.5/4 25% Goodbye World (2014) " None of these characters really work as either representations of ideologies or human beings, and none of their female counterparts, despite the fact that the movie was co-written by a woman, are convincing ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/4 58% Dom Hemingway (2014) " Cool stuff, and Law should get some kind of award in a "Most Shamelessly Enjoyable" acting category." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 2, 2014
2/4 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " All those looking for a new kick are advised to seek it out, but don't blame me for the headache with which you might leave the theater." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 28, 2014
2.5/4 47% Blood Ties (2014) " If you're an ardent admirer of pretty much anyone in the cast (OK, except Emmerich), you'll find something worthwhile here." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 21, 2014
3.5/4 97% Ernest & Célestine (2014) " Every frame is suffused with a fireplace kind of warmth that, for me at least, cast an immediate spell that didn't let up." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/4 77% Exposed (2014) " Much of what is depicted here is not for the easily shaken. If you associate "burlesque" exclusively with Natalie Wood's striptease scene in "Gypsy," take a step back." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2.5/4 86% In Fear (2014) " "In Fear" takes a small task and a hooky premise and runs with them, providing some good jolts over the course of its barely-90-minute length." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2.5/4 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " "300: Rise of an Empire" gets a lot of mileage out of sheer venal spectacle. Just don't try to derive a history lesson from the movie." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 7, 2014
4/4 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " To answer some folks who claim to enjoy Anderson's movies while also grousing that they wish he would apply his cinematic talents in a "different" mode: no, this isn't the movie in which he does what you think you want, whatever that is." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2.5/4 47% Stalingrad (2014) " I'd recommend it just for the window it provides into popular entertainment on the other side of the world." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/4 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " Costner deserves better, and the fact that he doesn't phone it in here indicates that he thinks maybe so do you." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2.5/4 29% Pompeii (2014) " The action scenes are choice, and once the clouds of ash and shooting fire and churning seas start up, "Pompeii" achieves a momentum that most sensationalist studio fare can't touch." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/4 53% Easy Money: Hard to Kill (2014) " Given the substance that was already inherent in the material, it seems wasteful for the filmmakers to discard it for the sake of one more guns-cocked standoff." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/4 85% The New Black (2014) " If you're looking for insight, context, poignancy, the movie does offer all of the above." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 12, 2014
1/4 49% RoboCop (2014) " An ostensibly mindless entertainment that doesn't content itself with mere sensationalism but goes out of its way to insult whatever intelligence the audience might have." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 12, 2014
1.5/4 —— Someone Marry Barry (2014) " Various catastrophes ensue, although hilarity does not." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 7, 2014
1.5/4 13% Brightest Star (2014) " This is a movie that so privileges the perspective of the good-looking foofy-haired white male that it makes you understand the absolutely pejorative aspect of the term "heteronormative."" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 31, 2014
3.5/4 89% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " The movie is straightforward, brisk, engaging, and sometimes even moving." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 31, 2014
1/4 4% I, Frankenstein (2014) " A grievously ill-advised motion picture on every level ..." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 24, 2014
1.5/4 36% Summer in February (2014) " It's sad when a movie that aspires to tell a sad, even tragic, story can't quite connect, and lies there inert on the screen instead of galvanizing or even stirring emotions the way it means to." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 17, 2014
3/4 56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) " A pretty suspenseful, largely engaging, and hardly ever too-over-the-top spy thriller." — RogerEbert.com
