2/5 9% Runner Runner (2013) " Be aware, poker fans. "Runner Runner" is bluffing." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2013
2/5 33% Five Dances (2013) " Though the film's untested cast struggles with the drama, and the sketched-out story is often banal (there are several amateurish calls-to-mom scenes), the presentation of a specific city subculture is etched from the heart." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2013
3/5 63% The Summit (2013) " Director Nick Ryan mixes in re-creations and actual footage to tell of an ill-fated climb involving an international group of established mountaineers." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2013
1/5 61% Linsanity (2013) " Banal and fawning, with Lin coming off as a pious, charmless subject." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2013
5/5 97% Gravity (2013) " If our exploration of space emerged from imagination, science and the spark of inspiration, the extraordinary "Gravity" uses those same tools to craft a movie that might correctly be called a thrill ride with a brain." — New York Daily News
Posted Oct 2, 2013
2/5 45% Morning (2013) " The effort here counts for something, but the emotions may be just too much." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 26, 2013
4/5 92% Inequality For All (2013) " Essential viewing, no matter how you cut it." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 26, 2013
3/5 89% Rush (2013) " By the time the final lap of "Rush" starts, we're up for the ride." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
3/5 42% Men at Lunch (2013) " Delicious." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
2/5 83% The Short Game (2013) " This less-than-illuminating work resembles the spelling-bee doc "Spellbound," only with a promise of high-end endorsements and far more pampering." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
3/5 80% Generation Iron (2013) " The oversized men who compete for the title of Mr. Olympia in this illuminating documentary are articulate and serious-minded, with some muscling through adversity to find a way to their dreams." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
4/5 82% Prisoners (2013) " It's easy to make a thriller. It's hard to make one that says something about human nature and then, like the hauntingly compelling "Prisoners," finds something inside the genre that validates tying your nerves up in knots." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
2/5 49% Thanks For Sharing (2013) " Solidly grounded performances from almost all the cast members wind up playing second fiddle to navel-gazing." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 19, 2013
3/5 96% Enough Said (2013) " What a treat it is to discover a totally new actor inside one we already loved. And how sad to know we won't see that from him again." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 18, 2013
3/5 93% Mother Of George (2013) " Director Andrew Dosunmu's film is big-hearted and rich, frequently using slow motion to underscore an artful intimacy." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 12, 2013
3/5 —— Naked As We Came (2013) " Writer and director Richard LeMay's film plays from the heart, sometimes almost too blatantly. But on the whole, it nicely underscores how silences and shouts often come from the same place." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 12, 2013
2/5 45% And While We Were Here (2013) " Though the film plays like late-era Woody Allen - not necessarily a good thing - and Goldberg's rambunctiousness is more annoying than liberating, there's a serious depth of feeling here." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 12, 2013
1/5 29% The Family (2013) " This unexciting, unfunny would-be action satire is filled with Italian-American stereotypes, decades-old TV-style Mafia cliches, bits of business that never amount to anything and actors so much better than the hoary, one-joke material." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 12, 2013
2/5 38% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) " Comes upon a few quirky solutions and movie-ripoff scares before settling into a kind of coma." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 12, 2013
2/5 35% Touchy Feely (2013) " Shelton's oh-so-slight veer toward whimsy and artifice this time turns her previous strengths into weaknesses." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
2/5 15% Winnie Mandela (2013) " Distant and obvious, it takes a story with many angles and reduces its edges, becoming a glorified TV movie." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
1/5 58% Riddick (2013) " There's no expiration date for movie characters. But there are certainly some who, if they went missing, we'd never even notice." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
2/5 32% A Teacher (2013) " Fidell's mature style and Burdge's lack of guile are engaging. As the film's emotions grow darker, a lack of ideas comes through." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
3/5 73% Populaire (2013) " When things change to a rom-com template, things get slightly more rote, but in everything from film stock to (slightly overactive) score, "Populaire" is a nice shift to another time." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
1/5 34% Hell Baby (2013) " There are genre satires, and then there are dumb comedies that wish they could qualify for that status." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
1/5 31% Adore (2013) " [An] embarrassingly breathless portrayal of middle-aged crazy." — New York Daily News
Posted Sep 5, 2013
3/5 13% The Lifeguard (2013) " This sorrowful, achingly wise little drama has a lot to say about the dangers of hanging on to youth at all costs." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 29, 2013
1/5 34% Passion (2013) " With no heat at all and a woefully disjointed cast, De Palma's danse macabre never catches fire." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 29, 2013
2/5 2% Getaway (2013) " "Getaway" gets itself embroiled in all sorts of inane situations. Then director Courtney Solomon forgets to give us that basic thrill of all car-chase flicks: watching the car barrel toward its destination." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 29, 2013
2/5 42% Closed Circuit (2013) " This officious, aggravatingly overexplained drama gets more washed out and dull as it goes along." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 28, 2013
4/5 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " Short Term 12 wraps up with one of the most touchingly memorable last moments of any film this year. Despite a title that's hard to recall, this brief but resonant movie sticks with you." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2013
4/5 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) " We laugh with these people not because they're absurd, but because they're so normal. Swanberg's made the rare film that feels exactly the way your friends do when they don't know you're watching them." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2013
2/5 74% You're Next (2013) " "You're Next" tries, somewhat valiantly, to add new twists to the usual bloody horror-flick shenanigans. But aside from a few fresh chords, it's same-old, same-old." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2013
1/5 59% The Frozen Ground (2013) " The movie's late-night cable feel and skeevy salaciousness grinds everything to a snowy slush." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2013
3/5 75% The Grandmaster (2013) " An exquisite-looking, fitfully moving drama from the director of "In the Mood for Love."" — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2013
3/5 79% Rising From Ashes (2013) " Ashes is joyous and uplifting, full of spirit, memorable athletes (including Olympian Adrien Niyonshuti) and remarkable achievements, both big and small." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 16, 2013
1/5 30% Austenland (2013) " The missed opportunities in "Austenland" are more numerous than dowry-less sourpusses at a ball in a Jane Austen novel." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 16, 2013
4/5 27% Jobs (2013) " Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 16, 2013
3/5 50% Drew: The Man Behind The Poster (2013) " The summary comes when the low-key Struzan offhandedly reveals what he often hears: "Give it your magic." It's all on view here." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3/5 96% Cutie And The Boxer (2013) " They express love and vivaciousness, at once seeming like any couple walking down the street and yet unlike anyone you're lucky enough to spend time with." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
2/5 93% This Is Martin Bonner (2013) " This contemplative drama draws strength from day-to-day ordinariness and a terrific lead performance from Paul Eenhoorn, yet sadly falls short." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
2/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " The meta-satire hits you over the head until not just your Spidey sense is tingling." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
1/5 5% Paranoia (2013) " "Paranoia's" twitchiness is like an actual twitch: it's contrived and clunky, and you forget it in an instant." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3/5 86% The Patience Stone (2013) " Speaking truth to power - all manner of truths, to any kind of power - is at the core of "The Patience Stone."" — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3/5 79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) " The shadow of Terrence Malick falls hard across this Texas crime drama, a beautiful-looking prose poem that starts strong but winds up with nowhere to go." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
4/5 72% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) " A singularly full-hearted and moving film." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 15, 2013
4/5 92% In a World... (2013) " A sparky combination of workplace satire, family tapestry and hipster star-is-born goofs, "In a World ..." is able to pitch its theme in several places." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 8, 2013
3/5 68% Elysium (2013) " Like some of the best sci-fi movies, it draws strength from a great idea. Then it settles for crunching battles and predictability." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 7, 2013
2/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) " The Millers script -- it took four writers to cobble together something that seems so slight -- hits too many obvious notes between the moments when Aniston can strut her stuff." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 6, 2013
4/5 64% 2 Guns (2013) " Pure charisma is sometimes the best special effect. That's what Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg bring to 2 Guns, and after a season full of superhero duds, they deliver a crucial dose of cool." — New York Daily News
Posted Aug 1, 2013
3/5 68% El artista y la modelo (The Artist and the Model) (2013) " Much like "La Belle Noiseuse," the 1991 Jacques Rivette film it resembles, this contemplative drama washes over you." — New York Daily News
