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 9, 2015
2/5 32% Dark Summer (2015) "As an exercise in atmosphere, this claustrophobic creeper does a lot with a little, even if the movie winds up providing just superficial shivers. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 8, 2015
3/5 84% Predestination (2015) "Dumb-smart fun. The movie screws with your head, and even screws with itself. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 8, 2015
3/5 91% Locke (2014) "Yes, it sounds like a gimmick. But Tom Hardy is so compelling, multilayered and terrific in the title role, this one-man show is never dull. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jan 5, 2015
5/5 90% A Most Violent Year (2015) "A movie that quietly but ferociously immerses us in a time and place, with atmosphere done in minimal yet evocative strokes. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Dec 17, 2014
2/5 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "There's far too many moments of sabre-rattling, and too much confusion about who is aligned with whom, and why. Those who know and love Tolkien's texts will have a vested interest. Everyone else may grow restless. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 16, 2014

Posted Dec 11, 2014
4/5 73% Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles (2014) "If one has a need for another documentary on Orson Welles - there are already several on DVDs of his films - montage master Chuck Workman's footage-filled movie will ably fit the bill. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Dec 4, 2014
1/5 30% Murder of a Cat (2014) "Despite the presence of actors like Simmons, Greg Kinnear and Blythe Danner, this trying-too-hard comedy is as annoying as chasing a ball at the end of a bouncy string. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Dec 3, 2014
3/5 35% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "Bateman has never been funnier on film, because the zingers he launches are bounced off of the oafish Sudeikis and the ferrety Day. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 25, 2014
2/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "There are moments when "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" takes flight, but overall this action-drama flits about, wondering where to land. " ‐ New York Daily News

4/5 40% 21 Years: Richard Linklater (2014) "There are great clips and good insight, and it's all as loose and cool as an Austin night out. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3/5 41% The Better Angels (2014) "If you succumb to "The Better Angels," the effect is like falling into a gorgeous photograph, but that also means the narrative in this arthouse film is oblique and sketchy. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) "The beautiful Jones seems limited in how deep she can burrow into Jane's frustration and sorrow. But then, anyone would be lost in Redmayne's wake. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 5, 2014
3/5 72% Interstellar (2014) "Even as "Interstellar" becomes a beautiful mess, its wannabe-deep impact will hit everyone differently. We need far-reaching artists like Nolan, since, as they say, Earth without art is "eh." " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Oct 23, 2014
2/5 51% Low Down (2014) "Preiss soaks his movie in a brownish retro atmosphere, which helps smooth over the many dull spots, but only briefly. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 23, 2014

Posted Oct 15, 2014
4/5 47% The Judge (2014) "Always the most inscrutable of the great '70s actors, Duvall uses his great, unassuming American face to convey pride, confusion, pain and compassion - sometimes all at once. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 9, 2014

Posted Oct 9, 2014
4/5 77% St. Vincent (2014) ""St. Vincent," the movie, is a lot like its namesake character, Vincent: overexuberant, a bit predictable, messy in a very self-conscious way. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 8, 2014
