4/5 99% The Missing Picture (2014) " Panh believes that those who survive such oppression are obligated to speak about it - and this chronicle is impossible not to watch." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/5 13% McCanick (2014) " It's a shame the script doesn't offer anything beyond loose-cannon-cop cliches." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/5 36% Just a Sigh (2014) " French cinema has built many a masterpiece on the foundation of what may, on the surface, just seem like women wandering around. Sadly, 'Just A Sigh' is no 'Cleo From 5 To 7' or 'The Green Ray'. " — The Dissolve
Posted Mar 19, 2014
8/10 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " Vaudevillian pandemonium is alive and well." — Film.com
Posted Mar 19, 2014
8/10 97% Ernest & CĂ©lestine (2014) " 'Frozen' beat 'Ernest & Celestine' at the Oscars for Best Animated Picture. I'm not about to diss the winner - it's a great movie - but this is one that's worth checking out as well." — ScreenCrush
Posted Mar 17, 2014
2/5 16% The Single Moms' Club (2014) " [T]his is a film about catharsis and camaraderie, not logic. " — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2/5 64% The Cold Lands (2014) " "The Cold Lands" is aimless and dull, but has a rich tone and upstate authenticity." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3.5/5 74% Enemy (2014) " Even with a final third that doesn't deliver on the setup, the movie more than makes it across the finish line." — The Dissolve
Posted Mar 12, 2014
1/10 23% Need For Speed (2014) " [I]diotic in addition to being irresponsible." — ScreenCrush
Posted Mar 11, 2014
3/10 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " "Nymphomaniac Vol. 1″ is the worst thing Lars Von Trier has ever associated himself with." — Film.com
Posted Mar 11, 2014
3/5 30% Perfect Sisters (2014) " A marginal film elevated, however inadvertently, by the strange specificity of its scenes" — The Dissolve
Posted Mar 10, 2014
7/10 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " "I forbid you from fighting in the Trojan War!" It's something any father would say to his son, provided that the pair regularly traveled through time." — ScreenCrush
Posted Mar 7, 2014
1/5 38% Haunt (2014) " There's lots of mixed film stock and screeches on the soundtrack (as in the credits for "Seven"), but this gets annoying, as do the predictable twists." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
4/5 77% Bethlehem (2014) " By its conclusion, this fascinating film has informed its viewers more than a hundred political essays could." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
4/5 95% Particle Fever (2014) " Talk about a smash hit." — New York Daily News
Posted Mar 6, 2014
2/5 86% In Fear (2014) " As an exercise in stomach-knotting, In Fear is mildly successful [...] All the pieces are in place for a gripping indie horror flick, but [the] film just goes around in circles. " — The Dissolve
Posted Mar 4, 2014
7/10 41% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " There is a sex scene in '300: Rise of an Empire' that is an all-timer." — ScreenCrush
Posted Mar 3, 2014
2/10 21% Son Of God (2014) " Considering just how popular Jesus is, you'd think he'd get better treatment" — Film.com
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 47% Stalingrad (2014) " If you're going to make a movie about the bloodiest battle in human history, perhaps there's no place for subtlety. "Stalingrad" goes for big explosions and bigger theatrics, and it works." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 27, 2014
4/5 85% Two Lives (2014) " a unique take on typical John le CarrĂ© turf" — The Dissolve
Posted Feb 26, 2014
6/10 59% Non-Stop (2014) " It's disposable but that doesn't mean it's bad" — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 26, 2014
8/10 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " A memory of a memory, a fastidious, whimsical take on real horrors - a storybook samizdat that entices with madcap adventure then goes in for the kill with existential dread. " — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 24, 2014

Posted Feb 20, 2014
4/5 93% Child's Pose (2014) " The movie creates its own tightening vice grip." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
1/5 60% Chaplin of the Mountains (2014) " In real life, this makes a nice story. As a movie, it is a cavalcade of cliches." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 20, 2014
2/5 53% Jimmy P. (2014) " Benicio Del Toro's sad, penetrating eyes loom heavy in this intellectually intriguing but sadly dull biopic." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
1/5 8% Girl On A Bicycle (2014) " What wants to be a screwball comedy is run over by preposterous character motivation and a clunky plot." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2/5 53% Easy Money: Hard to Kill (2014) " How many times do these guys need to hear that crime doesn't pay?" — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 13, 2014
1/10 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " 'Winter's Tale' makes 'Safe Haven' look like 'The Godfather.'" — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 12, 2014
5/10 49% RoboCop (2014) " The new 'RoboCop' isn't terrible. It's certainly better than the recent 'Total Recall.' It just can't compete." — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 11, 2014
3/5 10% Vampire Academy (2014) " For the target audience - teen girls likely to spend as much time gossiping in the theater lobby as they are to actually watch the movie - "Vampire Academy" is pure catnip." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 7, 2014
3/5 57% Demi-soeur (2014) " In the end, you've got to have a heart harder than a tortoise shell not get a little misty." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
1/5 70% Love & Air Sex (2014) " Director Bryan Poyser has no clue what to do with his stars, other than to ask them to humiliate themselves." — New York Daily News
Posted Feb 6, 2014
6/10 63% Nurse 3-D (2014) " Someone (who deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom, BTW) recognized that if they went all-in on trash they'd have a classic, grindhouse exploitation film that ably scratches an itch for degenerate movie goers." — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 5, 2014
9/10 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " From its opening frame to its surprisingly heartfelt conclusion, 'The LEGO Movie' has a bright and brash, candy-colored go go go dynamism that crackles with a glorious alacrity set to the tempo of the classroom's biggest and most disruptive spaz." — ScreenCrush
Posted Feb 2, 2014
8.9/10 100% Listen Up Philip " Schwartzman is absolute perfect casting." — Film.com
Posted Jan 29, 2014
6/10 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " They don't make 'em like that anymore!" — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 29, 2014
2/5 69% Visitors (2014) " Godfrey Reggio's latest movie, "Visitors," has all of the pretensions and none of the pop of his earlier work." — New York Daily News

Posted Jan 23, 2014
5/10 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " For all the technique, 'The Raid 2′ - at least this unrated cut - can only offer shock." — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 22, 2014
6/10 87% A Most Wanted Man (2014) " an interesting yarn, but while watching it I was unable to shake that it was so ... freaking ... slow." — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 21, 2014
8/10 85% The Voices " Even with the talking cat, this movie is a lot more realistic than 'Silver Linings Playbook.'" — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 21, 2014
7/10 —— To Be Takei (2014) " It's more than just 'OK to be Takei.'" — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 20, 2014
9/10 88% Frank (2014) " A very meaningful film, but it also has a good beat." — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 20, 2014
2/10 50% I Origins (2014) " Half-assed storytelling and dull performances" — ScreenCrush
Posted Jan 20, 2014
8.9/10 100% Love Is Strange (2014) " Ira Sachs' film makes you understand the miracle and good fortune of finding love." — Film.com
Posted Jan 20, 2014
3/5 87% Like Father, Like Son (2014) " While some of the class conflict is predictable, the movie wins out by treating everyone as individuals, not types, and maintaining a muted tone." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
4/5 78% Big Bad Wolves (2014) " The Middle Eastern setting adds a rich quality and the movie works as both a suspense flick and a vehicle to examine the ethics of justice. Some scenes get gruesome without warning, but the violence is always earned." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
2/5 11% The Nut Job (2014) " The cartoon is stuffed with exhausting visual mayhem. Some jokes land, but most kids over 10 will roll their eyes." — New York Daily News
Posted Jan 16, 2014
3/10 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) " The best way to describe 'The Legend of Hercules' is as the fake movie that teenagers in movies go to see." — ScreenCrush
