Posted Jun 3, 2015
3/5 32% Entourage (2015) "Entourage plays like a solid, if slightly too long, episode. But even given the bloat, the cast's easy camaraderie and a "play it as it lays" atmosphere wins you over. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jun 2, 2015
1/5 21% Barely Lethal (2015) "This mashup of a teenage assassin lark and high school misfit comedy misses the chance to add a supercool heroine to pop culture. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 29, 2015
2/5 19% Aloha (2015) ""Aloha" isn't horrible, but it does have a pitiable odor about it, like a dog that's sat too long on the beach. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 28, 2015
1/5 81% Results (2015) "Writer-director Andrew Bujalski appreciates a grimy basement as much as he does a wide-open highway, and he aims for a slice-of-life tapestry. But he should have simply let Corrigan slouch into nirvana. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted May 27, 2015
2/5 89% When Marnie Was There (2015) "The Ghibli studio is in transition, but "Marnie," despite some gentle moments of reflection, is a ghost shadow of its previous masterworks. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted May 13, 2015
4/5 91% Slow West (2015) "This is a western through alternative eyes and ears, though what motivates everyone in it - love, money, fear, redemption - is as familiar as an old pair of boots. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 13, 2015
5/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Strap in, load up and hang on because "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a freaky, ballsy, phenomenal ride. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted May 11, 2015
2/5 17% Playing It Cool (2015) "Screenwriters Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair's script feels like a first draft that was written in one night as they got pumped up on Red Bull and speed-watched Netflix. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 8, 2015
1/5 54% Maggie (2015) "Its creepy atmosphere aside, "Maggie" is a slog of the living dead. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 8, 2015

Posted May 7, 2015
3/5 84% I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015) "You'll find a few touching moments and some iconic images for Gen-X viewers, but don't expect any feathers to get ruffled. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 6, 2015
3/5 71% Welcome to Me (2015) ""Welcome to Me" is not just a character study, but a satire on how the self-centered emptiness of TV is a kind of epidemic. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 29, 2015
4/5 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) ""Avengers: Age of Ultron" is a kinetic, wicked mix of muscle and magic. Look no further if you want a world of superpowered freaks and geeks. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 27, 2015
2/5 63% The Water Diviner (2015) "Despite the incongruous romance and abrupt action beats, Crowe gives a likable, sympathetic performance. But it all starts to dry up before our eyes. " ‐ New York Daily News

1/5 11% Just Before I Go (2015) "Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom. The former "Friends" star clearly wanted something special, but sadly the result is ... this. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 23, 2015
4/5 32% Misery Loves Comedy (2014) "Explaining humor is usually like boiling water - it evaporates. But the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 23, 2015

Posted Apr 17, 2015
1/5 34% Beyond The Reach (2015) "The title of this turgid chase drama couldn't be more apt: almost everything escapes its aim. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 16, 2015
2/5 26% Child 44 (2015) "A muddled, mumbling thriller that never gets us in an iron grip. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 16, 2015
2/5 45% True Story (2015) "This based-on-fact drama would seem to have enough lurid details, slippery truths and human complexity to be an intriguing combination of "Capote" and "Shattered Glass." But the movie squanders its chances. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 16, 2015
5/5 94% Monkey Kingdom (2015) "If you don't love monkeys already - and really, we all should - then "Monkey Kingdom" will swing you in the right direction. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Apr 9, 2015

Posted Apr 8, 2015

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 52% 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 83% 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 88% 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 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
