3/5 76% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) " [A] fast-moving, entertaining documentary directed with penache by Mike Myers ..." — New York Daily News
Posted Jun 5, 2014
4/5 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " Those looking for any fault in these stars - or the proud, full-of-life characters they portray - will have to look elsewhere." — New York Daily News
Posted Jun 5, 2014
3/5 63% Filth (2014) " Manic but often morbidly fun ..." — New York Daily News
Posted May 29, 2014
4/5 76% Lucky Them (2014) " If the whole movie ends up feeling like "Eddie and the Cruisers" in flannel, the sharp cast members at least come as they are." — New York Daily News
Posted May 29, 2014
4/5 48% Maleficent (2014) " Angelina Jolie is so wickedly enchanting in the magical, magnificent "Maleficent," you may not notice how transporting this female-driven blockbuster really is." — New York Daily News
Posted May 29, 2014
2/5 42% Words And Pictures (2014) " A movie that's a textbook case of not living up to its potential." — New York Daily News
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 93% The Dance of Reality (2014) " A film with an imagination as big as its heart - which is mighty grand, and more powerful than authoritarianism." — New York Daily News
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " The movie finds a lot of success, largely due to solid work from a lot of extraordinary actors. They maneuver around a jam-packed plot that, in lesser hands, could have left you looking at your watch." — New York Daily News
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " The scope is at times too epic. The heightened emotions, though, are in the hands of a strong cast." — New York Daily News
Posted May 15, 2014
2/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " Despite a few fiery breaths, there's mostly hot air from a lot of serious actors slumming it." — New York Daily News
Posted May 15, 2014
4/5 34% God's Pocket (2014) " Many pleasures in "God's Pocket" come from the interplay between characters too wise to tell the truth but too proud to shut their yaps." — New York Daily News
Posted May 8, 2014
3/5 82% The Double (2014) " If you're on its wavelength, it's a dive into quirky, murky fun. But even if you are, this oddball offering is vague and slippery, a calmer brother to "Brazil" or Orson Welles' Kafka tale "The Trial."" — New York Daily News
Posted May 8, 2014
3/5 88% Chef (2014) " Scenes of Favreau at the grill bantering with Leguizamo and Cannavale could almost sustain an entire movie." — New York Daily News
Posted May 8, 2014
1/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " Rogen tries so hard to up the funny, riffing a million miles a minute, you worry that he's headed for a heart attack." — New York Daily News
Posted May 7, 2014
4/5 52% NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014) " This engrossing documentary winds up being about nothing less than making one of Shakespeare's greatest works come alive through hard work - and the spark that happens within an acting company." — New York Daily News
Posted May 1, 2014
4/5 95% Ida (2014) " Both "Ida" and Ida are exquisite." — New York Daily News
Posted May 1, 2014
4/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Andrew Garfield is possibly the best actor to ever star in any Marvel Comics-based flick." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 27, 2014
1/5 26% Brick Mansions (2014) " The film is put together too choppily to appreciate the bounce-off-walls athleticism of parkour." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 96% Blue Ruin (2014) " A real trip." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2/5 18% Gambit (2014) " Firth is solid as always. He fits his tailored suits and rectangular glasses to a T. Diaz fares less well." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " For all its shortcomings, "Gigolo" knows when to turn on the charm." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 17, 2014
3/5 19% Transcendence (2014) " Transcendence is a movie that's of two minds. It's well-grounded, but also over the top. It's a man-vs.-machine epic and also an intimate drama. It's quirky-smart yet sci-fi silly. And it winds up being half as good as it could be." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2/5 46% Heaven Is for Real (2014) " This heavy-handed movie is simply a sermon its makers think we all should hear." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2/5 50% Hateship Loveship (2014) " Too bad "blahship" isn't an option. Because that sums it up." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/5 90% Dancing In Jaffa (2014) " The initially reluctant, moving duets they finally perform make you feel like, yes, dancing." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/5 69% No God, No Master (2014) " Interesting politics done in by so-so filmmaking." — New York Daily News
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 30% Perfect Sisters (2014) " This kind of thing requires a velvet touch, though director Stanley M. Brooks hits only hammer-heavy notes." — 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 86% 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 10, 2014
0/5 60% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) " Here we go again." — New York Daily News
Posted Apr 3, 2014

Posted Apr 3, 2014
4/5 84% The Unknown Known (2014) " The matchup, culled from 30 hours of interviews, is intoxicating, and at times maddening, to watch." — 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 Apr 1, 2014
2/5 77% Noah (2014) " A biblical movie needs more than faith." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 27, 2014
1/5 50% Blumenthal (2014) " Let's see what Fisher does next." — 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 55% 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 98% 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 53% 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 20, 2014
1/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) " "Need for Speed" is like a great-looking roadster with a junky engine." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
4/5 89% Le Week-End (2014) " Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan are plummy perfection as a British pair in their 60s who hope to reenergize their marriage with a trip to Paris." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3/5 73% Enemy (2014) " The saving grace of this tricky, unsettling movie is Jake Gyllenhaal's edgy turn. Or, rather, his two edgy turns." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
1/5 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " The film winds up looking like an ashen video game. It's even more muddy in IMAX and 3-D." — 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 77% 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
