26% Child 44 (2015) "The movie doesn't really captivate the way it should, and as the manhunt stretches on it actually diminishes in suspense, ultimately overstaying its two-plus-hour running time. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Dark Places "It keeps the guessing game going long enough to compensate for some otherwise shallow characterizations, while Theron offers up an earnest and downbeat turn that says a lot with little dialogue ... " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

73% Welcome To New York (2015) "It's a rather fascinating bit of artistic self-indulgence that's both made by, and about, self-indulgent men, although one that can certainly grow taxing. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 23, 2015
21% My Way (2011) "Kang Je-kyu's big-budgeted WWII melodrama offers up a kitschy, overtly violent tale about two rival marathon runners caught in a continent-hopping battle of blood, guts and bad dialogue. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 13, 2015
80% Not My Type "[It's] omewhat redeemed by an endearing turn from Belgian-born star Emilie Dequenne, who brings something extra to a film that seems to be deliberately playing with Gallic rom-com stereotypes, yet has a hard time going beyond them. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 11, 2015
40% On The Way To School (2015) "Despite its earnest message, Plisson's documentary remains mostly on the surface of its subject matter. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 4, 2015
No Score Yet Atlit "Fails to capitalize on a potentially thought-provoking scenario, opting instead for schmaltzy storytelling and predictable sibling rivalries, with a few welcome nods to actual historical events. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 28, 2015
28% Wild Card (2015) "Should cash in on Statham's loyal fan base, but will be a letdown to anyone looking for a real thrill ride. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 14, 2015

13% Seventh Son (2015) "Son of a dud. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 17, 2014
23% Love, Rosie (2015) "Ditter has made a handful of popular comedies in Germany, and while he's able to maintain a certain rhythm and polish, there's ultimately nothing in Love, Rosie that distinguishes it much from your average in-flight movie. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 6, 2014
70% Trash "There's no doubting a certain passion among crew and cast, most notably the trio of native youngsters whose antics provide a solid level of action-packed dramedy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 19, 2014
93% Diplomacy (2014) "It's Arestrup who really steals the show, turning von Cholitz into a man who bears the weight of several thousand soldiers, not to mention an entire civilian population, and who suffers under that burden until making a final, eleventh hour decision. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 10, 2014
86% The Blue Room (2014) "[Amalric's] latest effort, The Blue Room (La Chambre bleue), takes a cue from both classic Hollywood noir and the time-shuffling narratives of the late Alain Resnais, telling a familiar story in ways that can feel compellingly new. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 24, 2014
80% Fort Bliss (2014) "[A] well-observed and endearing account of one woman grappling with allegiances to her fellow soldiers and her estranged 5-year-old son. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 22, 2014
88% Top Five (2014) "The writing is strong enough that when the humor gives way to drama in the second half, there's enough at stake to keep us interested, although Rock still has plenty of jokes in store for the finale. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 12, 2014
No Score Yet American Heist (2015) "A run-of-the-mill crime drama that toes the risibility line on several occasions, even if it's better made than your typical straight-to-video movie. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 8, 2014
81% Ned Rifle (2015) "A crime dramedy that's ostensibly quirky, but also short, sweet and rather moving. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 8, 2014
95% Nightcrawler (2014) "Like his erratic protagonist, Gilroy doesn't always know when to settle down or call it quits, and the film's constant shifts of tone can grow tiring, even if the action as a whole never gets boring. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 7, 2014
37% Black or White (2015) "A broad but touching dramedy about the racial barriers that divide us and the family ties that bind. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 7, 2014
89% Pawn Sacrifice (2015) "This well-acted and handsomely crafted biopic is not a total checkmate, but takes the queen all the same. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted May 19, 2014
29% Pompeii (2014) "A kitschy apocalyptic peplum whose visual epiphanies -- of which there are definitely a few -- cannot outdo a B- (or C- or D-) grade scenario that will have lots of eyes rolling by the time the big stack finally blows. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 19, 2014
17% Tarzan (2014) "All of this feels awfully simplistic, like a 10-minute cartoon sketch bloated into a full-length movie, and one that's backed by an over-explanatory voiceover that can sometimes sound awkward. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 27, 2014
No Score Yet Un Autre Vie "This bold but misguided effort is as well-crafted as it often feels overblown, asking viewers to take a considerably leap of faith in following its many twists, turns and swooning scenes of amour interdit. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

62% Mood Indigo (2014) "Michel Gondry's surreal Gallic dramedy is less a visual feast than an all-you-can-eat buffet, and one that's rather hard to consume. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 23, 2013
80% Dark Blood (1993) "Left unfinished when River Phoenix died of drug-related causes in the middle of shooting, this terrifically played and superbly photographed three-hander reveals to what extent the 23-year-old star was an intense and unpredictable talent. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
