**** 93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) " Unlike Christian Bale's freak-show emaciation for 2004's 'The Machinist,' McConaughey's astonishing weight loss for his portrayal of AIDS activist Ron Woodruff doesn't overshadow the movie. It reinforces the authenticity of this fine film. " — Bloomberg News

Posted Jul 2, 2013
65% The Heat (2013) " Standard-issue for the point-and-shoot style that trains a camera on improvising actors. The outtakes might be hilarious." — Bloomberg News
