1/5 30% The Longest Ride (2015) "If this is your particular poison, it won't kill you. But anyone averse to Sparks' sappy touch may get sick from all the bull. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 9, 2015
4/5 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "This is the film that fulfills whatever promise Kristen Stewart has shown for more than a decade. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 9, 2015
1/5 9% Kill Me Three Times (2015) "This Australian movie reminds you what can happen when directors pretend to be Quentin Tarantino, complete with snark masquerading as style, slippery timelines, blood and guts and guns everywhere. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 9, 2015
3/5 91% Ex Machina (2015) ""Ex Machina" shows there's still life left in tales of artificial intelligence. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 8, 2015
1/5 16% Last Knights (2015) "This thing is so garbled and goofy it plays like a parody. Except it's not. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2015
2/5 42% Effie Gray (2015) "Fanning feels wafer-thin and out of her element. She's appropriately wan, but as we never know Effie's potential, her loss of identity has minimal punch. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2015
2/5 53% Woman in Gold (2015) "Next to Mirren, [Reynolds is] like a dope in a museum, trying to be respectful of the genius around him but unable to sit still. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 2, 2015
3/5 81% Ned Rifle (2015) "Like the best of Hartley's work ("Fool," "Trust," "Simple Men"), "Ned" leaves behind little bits of wisdom. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 2, 2015
5/5 84% While We're Young (2015) "When Baumbach is on, he's really on, and the brilliant "While We're Young" contains the same self-lacerating humor as his "Greenberg," "Margot at the Wedding" and "The Squid and the Whale." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 26, 2015
2/5 22% The Barber (2015) "What remains rote is how easily the fiend's victims fall for his tricks. It's almost as if they've seen too many movies like "The Barber," and shaved away all common sense. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 26, 2015
4/5 18% Serena (2015) "Lawrence is the hottest actress in Hollywood and she and Cooper share six Oscar nominations, and one win, between them. But "Serena" uses muscles the costars of "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" stars don't often get to flex. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 26, 2015
1/5 29% Get Hard (2015) ""Get Hard" isn't edgy enough to be offensive or witty enough to be challenging. It's just dumb. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 25, 2015
3/5 86% Backcountry (2015) "Just when you thought it was safe to stand up to a bear in the woods, this jarring indie horror drama will make you scurry back indoors. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2015
1/5 7% Accidental Love (2015) "Forget the title. "Accidental Release" is more like it. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/5 17% The Gunman (2015) "There's a grubby, redemptive quality that makes this tough-minded flick feel like the son of "Serpico" and "Salvador." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/5 69% She's Lost Control (2015) "There's a lot left unsaid in director Anja Marquardt's chilly yet intimate and thought-provoking indie drama. But what should be said loud and clear is that actress Brooke Bloom is riveting. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/5 77% Danny Collins (2015) "This uneven but ultimately sweet comedy-drama takes full advantage of Pacino's larger-than-life persona (think "Glengarry Glen Ross," "Donnie Brasco," "The Insider") and his ability to add in lovely grace notes. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 19, 2015
1/5 30% Insurgent (2015) "Woodley, great in "The Spectacular Now" and "The Fault in Our Stars," is a humdrum action star. Her amiable yet laid-back style turns the film's key moments from do-or-die into OK-whatever. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 17, 2015
2/5 58% Walter (2015) "What a strange little indie film this is. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3/5 100% Seymour: An Introduction (2015) "Some very special aspects of New York City hide in plain sight. A case in point is Seymour Bernstein, the subject of actor Ethan Hawke's assured, meditative debut as a documentary director. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3/5 56% Champs (2015) "The historic, socioeconomic, racial and even poetic roots of pugilism are addressed, and celebs and sportwriters weigh in, but often it's the fighters themselves who best sum up the appeal of "the sweet science." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
1/5 60% Run All Night (2015) "Liam Neeson warns us what we're in for from the first voiceover at the start of "Run All Night": "I've done terrible things in my life." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
5/5 93% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) "[A] searing, scalpel-sharp documentary ... " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3/5 85% Cinderella (2015) "Disney's live-action retelling of its cornerstone princess tale is an often sparkling movie that never disrespects the kid audience even as it wins over the parents. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/5 20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) "Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times. More sly wit would have helped things come to a head. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 5, 2015
1/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) ""Unfinished Business" squanders almost every opportunity provided by its potentially funny premise. Instead, it becomes yet another blotch on star Vince Vaughn's résumé. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 5, 2015
4/5 85% Merchants Of Doubt (2015) "Shows how a bunko artist is a bunko artist, whether on a corner or on CNN. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 4, 2015
2/5 62% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "Yes, there are good moments from a team of veteran British actors, but overall, this return visit to the 2012 gray-set rom-com is deadly dull. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Mar 4, 2015
1/5 28% Out Of The Dark (2015) "Julia Stiles and Scott Speedman sleepwalk through a thriller that never lets either of their talents materialize. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 26, 2015
2/5 13% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "Doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 26, 2015
0/5 29% Everly (2015) "What on earth is Salma Hayek doing starring in this exploitative, junky piece of torture trash? " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 26, 2015
4/5 92% The Hunting Ground (2015) "The stories are horrifying, but essential to hear. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 26, 2015
1/5 56% Focus (2015) "In this lame caper, the biggest scam perpetrated is the one that makes audiences think they'll have a good time. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 26, 2015
0/5 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "The sequel takes everything that was good about the first film - a raunchy, though affectionate, take on how guys look back on the moment when their lives went south - and makes it seem accidental. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 19, 2015
2/5 79% McFarland USA (2015) ""McFarland, USA" invokes an old sports movie trope: the inspiring coach and his noble, suffering team. But the good intentions can't help it sprint past cliche. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 19, 2015
3/5 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "It succeeds not because it gets the dead-ghoul stuff right (sudden flights, tomb bedrooms, Lestat-like wardrobes), but because it sends up the true-life genre that just won't die. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 12, 2015
2/5 36% Hits (2015) "All the low-hum, behavioral buffoonery gets a bit tedious. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 11, 2015
4/5 39% Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2015) ""Sweet Blood" is idiosyncratic and sultry, simultaneously nodding to film conventions and striding boldly down its own path. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 11, 2015
0/5 71% The Voices (2015) "A few big stars working in a minor key, a bit of macabre indie-film quirk, and presto! Instant junk. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 5, 2015
1/5 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "Talk about lost in space. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 5, 2015
3/5 97% 1971 (2015) "This is a terrific time capsule with a resonant message. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 5, 2015
2/5 12% Seventh Son (2015) "The stars shine, but the special effects are strictly fantasy-film assembly line, with hardly a spark of inspiration. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Jan 22, 2015
2/5 49% Cake (2015) "Alas, "Cake" can't rise simply from Aniston's performance. Had the script been sharper and the direction tighter, she might just have made the Oscar list. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 22, 2015
2/5 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "By the time Jeremy Garelick's movie gets to the altar, it does hit a groove. But by then, the humor feels like stale champagne. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 53% Little Accidents (2015) "There's a quiet desperation to all the lives depicted in writer-director Sara Colangelo's assured indie about a West Virginia mining accident that upends everyone in town. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 15, 2015
2/5 34% Blackhat (2015) "The movie's smart ideas are overlaid with dull, standard-issue moments of people typing on computers or pursuits through crowded streets. " ‐ New York Daily News
