Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/5 64% A Fragile Trust: Plagiarism, Power And Jayson Blair At The New York Times (2014) " Director Samantha Grant chronicles an ignominious but fascinating chapter in modern journalism in this solid doc." — New York Daily News

Posted Apr 10, 2014
1/5 74% Oculus (2014) " A dangerously cracked creep flick." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/5 84% Joe (2014) " This kind of character could be deeply unappealing, but Cage appreciates the soulfulness of the story, as well as the swamp of backwoods Americana from which it springs." — New York Daily News

Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/5 21% Frankie & Alice (2014) " It's hard to see beyond Berry's forced mannerisms. She swerves from boogie-dancing tough girl to stoic matron to irritatingly voiced kid." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014
4/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " A great international thriller, it engages the world at large yet stays focused as a sharp cast led by Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie and Robert Redford support the star-spangled main man." — New York Daily News

Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " From the first scene, this Jakarta-set actioner is extraordinarily gorgeous - and extremely violent." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/5 54% Breathe In (2014) " Sometimes, when it comes to getting across specific themes or ideas, creating a mood can do even more than developing a story or writing dialogue." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
0/5 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " The film makes an analogy between sex and fly-fishing - and fly-fishing comes off as more intriguing." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 83% Rob the Mob (2014) " The movie winds up being a real standup flick, if you know what I mean." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
4/5 99% Jodorowsky's Dune (2014) " Jodo, now 85, is such a magnetic, life-affirming presence, it's clear Hollywood wasn't ready for his "Dune."" — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
1/5 47% Blood Ties (2014) " Fine actors are let down by a comatose script and wayward direction in this retro crime drama." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " The film's slightly overplotted feel is offset by the zippiest musical numbers since the Muppets' deservedly beloved 1979 film." — New York Daily News

Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " As with all of Anderson's films, the magic is in the cast. Fiennes, with his rapid-fire delivery and rapier mustache, is hilarious, dapper and total perfection." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
1/5 82% Grand Piano (2014) " With nearly a dozen production companies and financiers presenting it, "Piano" is nothing more than a way for moneyed muckety-mucks to be part of the movie biz." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014

Posted Feb 27, 2014
1/5 33% Odd Thomas (2014) " This expensive-looking indie, adapted from a supernatural book series by sci-fi author Dean Koontz, tries too hard for a wacky tone, and winds up merely brain-dead." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 60% Non-Stop (2014) " There's an enjoyable, go-for-broke bullishness in "Non-Stop" that echoes its star, Liam Neeson." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 91% Omar (2014) " The movie grips us partly because Bakri's performance is alternately casual and calculated." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014

Posted Feb 20, 2014
0/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " This lumpen adventure with a misguided romance buries anything in the disaster-flick genre that might have been a blast." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
3/5 68% About Last Night (2014) " Seduction is all in how it's played, as evidenced by the winning About Last Night. It's playful, stable and sexy, thanks to a cast that knows how to find the sweet spots." — New York Daily News

3/5 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " [Clooney and Heslov] make sure "Monuments Men" is fleet and fun, but wisely stop short of simply making "Ocean's Eleven" with jeeps." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
1/5 13% Brightest Star (2014) " Far from burning bright, this earnest indie starts out dull and gets duller." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 70% Love Is In The Air (2014) " With a snappy score made up of American standards and tons of Gallic spice, "Love" wins us over." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 82% Charlie Victor Romeo (2014) " Almost unbearably gripping." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) " The film certainly makes up in verve what it lacks in imagination." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
0/5 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) " It's amazing to think there were grown-ups behind the making of The Legend of Hercules." — New York Daily News

Posted Jan 9, 2014
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 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
