1/5 43% Cold Comes The Night (2014) " Cranston, in a fake beard and dark glasses, seems to be enjoying his goofy act. Trouble is, this isn't the kind of movie in which goofy earns goodwill." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 9, 2014
5/5 93% American Hustle (2013) " It turns out that comb-overs, cleavage, cocaine and kookiness are an unbeatable combo." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 8, 2014
1/5 39% Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) " The concept is the same, and just as tired as it was when the second, third and fourth sequels to Paranormal Activity's 2009 first installment." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 3, 2014
3/5 91% The Sapphires (2013) " This charming Australian import has a groove much like other low-key, let's-put-on-a-show indies such as Hear My Song and The Commitments, and never uses its social conscience as simply backbeat." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 1, 2014
2/5 98% Mud (2013) " Sadly, Nichols, who made the superb Take Shelter, gets mired in mood this time around. But there's still an evocative sense of childhood exploration, and a gritty performance by Matthew McConaughey." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 1, 2014
5/5 50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " Dreams not only come true in the wonderful "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," they're the stuff everyday life is made of." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 24, 2013
0/5 13% 47 Ronin (2013) " Memo to Hollywood: Find another use for Keanu Reeves." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 24, 2013
3/5 58% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) " [A] vibrant, engaging film adapted from Mandela's 2000 autobiography." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 24, 2013
4/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " Talk about a high-risk reward. Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a delirious, manic, push-the-limits comedy of gaudy amorality that tests the audience's taste." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 23, 2013
3/5 78% All The Light In The Sky (2013) " Swanberg ... has a knack for catching human behavior at its most unguarded." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 19, 2013
1/5 25% Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) " Kids love dinosaurs. But only the littlest kids will love Walking with Dinosaurs." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 19, 2013
2/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Joins 'Caddyshack II,' 'Airplane II,' 'Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo' and 'Arthur 2: On the Rocks' on the list of unnecessary sequels." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 17, 2013
2/5 19% Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas (2013) " Comedy characters change and grow. Sometimes, as we see in Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, they become so much like old relatives that their edge is gone." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 13, 2013
4/5 96% The Crash Reel (2013) " Director Lucy Walker's chronicle of how Pearce, his family and his friends grapple with their altered reality results in one of the year's best documentaries." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
2/5 57% Some Velvet Morning (2013) " Something's not right, and anyone who's paying attention will be able to spot the signifiers easily. You may be nonplussed by the Big Reveal, though the path to it is rough." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
4/5 79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " The slick but moving "Saving Mr. Banks" transcends its corporate pedigree to become a great Disney movie about making a Disney movie." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 12, 2013
1/5 42% Night Train To Lisbon (2013) " "Murder on the Orient Express," this ain't." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
3/5 88% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " The result is cool and semi-comical, but also serious." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
3/5 89% White Reindeer (2013) " Clark's script goes from funny little observations about the odd serenity people can get from resisting normalcy to shoehorned-in bits that aim for the rafters. But when the movie needs to be astute, it is." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2013
4/5 52% Out of the Furnace (2013) " "Out of the Furnace" gets under your skin. Bale's commitment etches a raw portrait of stagnation and sadness. Affleck is heartbreakingly feral, and Dafoe, Harrelson and Whitaker provide solid support." — New York Daily News
Posted Dec 4, 2013
1/5 42% Homefront (2013) " A disappointing mess of a genre flick." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 26, 2013
3/5 42% Oldboy (2013) " [Oldboy] is rife with blood, quirkiness, four-letter poetry and general ickiness. While much of the movie feels like a major filmmaker slumming in genre territory, there are still a few ripe mysteries to be solved." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 26, 2013
2/5 20% Cold Turkey (2013) " Writer-director Will Slocombe presents a familiar buffet, but there's good stuff to pick over." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 71% Everyday (2013) " The film's day-to-day aches are quiet and lovingly rendered." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
2/5 89% Narco Cultura (2013) " South of the border, the constant terror of bloody battles over drugs and territory has influenced music, movies and a level of star worship. But the glimpses we get here are a bit listless." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
1/5 18% The Christmas Candle (2013) " This odd Dickens-meets-Sunday-school movie is as artless as the setup is muddled." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 21, 2013
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " The double, or even triple, meanings behind Catching Fire -- the subtitle, as if you didn't know, of the second Hunger Games movie -- burns through this exciting, thoughtful adventure drama like a torch to tinder." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2013
2/5 67% Sunlight Jr. (2013) " Empathy for the all-too-real plight of the working poor drives this heavy but bold indie. Sadly, though, it falters under the weight of too much drama." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 —— Long Island Railroad Massacre (2013) " The real-life horror that gives this riveting documentary its title is revisited 20 years after the shooting rattled the region." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
4/5 92% Nebraska (2013) " As in "About Schmidt" and "Sideways," Payne - an Oscar winner for the script of "The Descendants" - finds poetry in everyday, lower-middle-class folks." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 66% Great Expectations (2013) " Yet another big-screen version of Dickens' exquisite tale of striving, charity and arrogance highlights the Gothic deliciousness of the tale." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 92% Medora (2013) " Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart's doc, exec-produced by Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci, is one more sad, serious eulogy for a way of life." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 88% The Wind Rises (2014) " It's a gorgeous-looking, thoughtful epic, even if it falters at times." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
2/5 67% How I Live Now (2013) " A frosty-eyed, imperturbable actress in "Atonement," "Hanna" and "The Host," Ronan is at least able to sell Daisy's new focus while the movie loses its own." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " Thor: The Dark World may not be thunder from the movie gods, but it is -- shock! -- an entertaining journey into mystery, action and fun." — New York Daily News
Posted Nov 6, 2013
3/5 92% Casting By (2013) " A look into one of the most invisible, and crucial, of cinematic disciplines." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 70% Man of Tai Chi (2013) " Say what you will about Keanu Reeves, he knows his strengths. So for his first directorial effort, he chose to do a martial-arts flick with a postmodern tinge." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
0/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) " Audiences of all ages, avoid it. Brain cells are too valuable." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
4/5 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) " The commitment McConaughey brings is something to behold ... Woodroof's mix of Texas blowhard and eccentric bozo is clearly his strong suit." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 57% Capital (2013) " This is territory covered far more vibrantly in "Margin Call," yet director Costa-Gavras ("Z," "Missing") still has good, old-fashioned indignation to count on." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
4/5 94% I Am Divine (2013) " In Milstead's brief 42 years there were separations and reunions, stumbles, success and, finally, a real American family, in movies oddly ahead of their time." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
2/5 64% Bastards (2013) " An oblique, by-design and frustrating drama ..." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
2/5 34% The Counselor (2013) " Ultimately, this dull tour of a thieving, primal underworld is just a lot of high-talking hogwash." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 24, 2013
5/5 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " A harrowing, unforgettable drama that doesn't look away from the reality of slavery and, in so doing, helps us all fully, truly confront it." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013
1/5 22% Paradise (2013) " Cody's directorial debut will not leave you wanting more." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 17, 2013

Posted Oct 17, 2013

Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 90% The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete (2013) " What day-to-day struggles do kids in need face? George Tillman Jr.'s "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete" addresses many of them within a self-contained but successful story." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 10, 2013
2/5 8% CBGB (2013) " The movie feels like a Las Vegas imitation of a place that was once scuzzily, beautifully alive." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 10, 2013
5/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) " Captain Phillips unfurls with an intensity that knocks the wind out of you. Director Paul Greengrass' film is the most gripping based-on-fact film so far this year." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 8, 2013
2/5 9% Runner Runner (2013) " Be aware, poker fans. "Runner Runner" is bluffing." — New York Daily News
