Posted Aug 29, 2014
45% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " The picture is completely owned by Eva Green, whose trademark nakedness is offered in generous measure." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 22, 2014
32% The Giver (2014) " Distinguished mainly by its transparent box-office calculation. In genre terms, it does just about everything wrong." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 15, 2014
91% Frank (2014) " A strange and wonderful movie drawn from an even stranger and not quite so wonderful real-life story." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 15, 2014
78% Land Ho! (2014) " The procession of amusing incidents carefully enlarges the two main characters, and soon we really care about them." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 8, 2014
69% What If (2014) " A happy surprise that's bubbled up out of the rom-com swamp." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 8, 2014
78% Get On Up (2014) " Disjointed to the point of irritation. But Boseman is -- no other word -- amazing. It's a dazzling feat of pure incarnation." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 1, 2014
92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " The movie is naturally thick with CGI. But Gunn uses the digital effects to create scenes of striking beauty." — Reason Online
Posted Aug 1, 2014
65% Lucy (2014) " Besson thrives on this sort of baloney, and his enthusiasm can be infectious." — Reason Online
Posted Jul 25, 2014
48% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " The movie may be most interesting in what it tells us about Allen himself." — Reason Online
Posted Jul 25, 2014
99% Boyhood (2014) " It really is a movie unlike any other." — Reason Online
Posted Jul 18, 2014
49% I Origins (2014) " A dairy farm run by a family named...Dairy?" — Reason Online
Posted Jul 18, 2014
90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " A blockbuster with a brain, and a heart, too - a welcome thing." — Reason Online
Posted Jul 11, 2014
—— A Hard Day's Night - 50th Anniversary (2014) " An extraordinary feat of digital salvage that brings us as close to that long-vanished era as we're likely to come any time soon." — Reason Online
Posted Jul 4, 2014
24% Tammy (2014) " ...has the awkward limpness of bad improv" — Reason Online
Posted Jul 2, 2014
18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " There's more product-placement in this movie than I can remember in ... ever. Even Dr. Dre gets a Beats shoutout-like he needs the money." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 27, 2014
95% Snowpiercer (2014) " The movie is baldly schematic, and largely grim and grubby. It wears you down." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 27, 2014
100% The Pleasures Of Being Out Of Step (2014) " For more than 60 years Hentoff has been an unrelentingly outspoken champion of both modern jazz and of all the liberties that flow from the First Amendment." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 27, 2014
53% Jersey Boys (2014) " The delirious New York music biz of the time, and all the other great music being made -- Eastwood captures none of that." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 20, 2014
66% The Rover (2014) " A movie that offers successive temptations to walk out of it." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 13, 2014
84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " The the picture is more than a wink-fest -- it's often blazingly funny." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 13, 2014
80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " The movie doesn't reach for tears, but tears come." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 6, 2014
90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " Seen as it must be, in IMAX 3D, the movie rears up before you in a formidable display of pure commercial will. It's actually a lot of fun." — Reason Online
Posted Jun 6, 2014
48% Maleficent (2014) " It's all about Angelina Jolie, in a performance of silky restraint." — Reason Online
Posted May 30, 2014
33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " Here at last, Seth MacFarlane in the flesh. Unfortunately, the flesh is weak." — Reason Online
Posted May 30, 2014
86% Cold in July (2014) " A sharp little noir with some nasty surprises." — Reason Online
Posted May 23, 2014
91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " Singer's gift for blending slamtastic action and monumental CGI setpieces with deep feeling and droll humor fully honors the classic Marvel comics." — Reason Online
Posted May 23, 2014
73% Godzilla (2014) " There are familiar themes floating around in the epic wreckage. Mainly, though, there are monsters. And they're pretty great." — Reason Online
Posted May 16, 2014
72% Palo Alto (2014) " In his first film role, Kilmer, with his gentle star quality, turns recessive indecision into something worth watching. " — Reason Online
Posted May 9, 2014
73% Neighbors (2014) " Mac and Kelly may still smoke the occasional joint, but their full-tilt 'shroom years are quickly receding, and at the end, they realize they're okay with that." — Reason Online
Posted May 9, 2014
88% Chef (2014) " Consistently funny -- and when Robert Downey Jr. glides in for five-minutes and just kills it, hilarious." — Reason Online
Posted May 9, 2014
47% Blood Glacier (2014) " An old-school creature feature that seeks only to peel your nerves back and gross you out -- and does its job." — Reason Online
Posted May 2, 2014
53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Aces the emotional stuff, but muffs the CGI spectacle designed to suck up bucks at the worldwide omniplex. " — Reason Online
Posted May 2, 2014
24% The Other Woman (2014) " Worth seeing to be reminded of how funny Leslie Mann can be..." — Reason Online
Posted Apr 25, 2014
63% In Your Eyes " A radiant romantic fantasy." — Reason Online
Posted Apr 21, 2014
19% Transcendence (2014) " The picture doesn't stake out any new genre territory, but it has a warm emotional core-it's really a love story." — Reason Online
Posted Apr 18, 2014
85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " Drifts like a dark bank of fog -- it's mostly atmosphere. But entertainingly strange, and unlikely to be confused with any other movie." — Reason Online
Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Plenty of action -- especially the rousing stuntwork -- but more of an emotional kick, too." — Reason Online
Posted Apr 4, 2014
88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " Gross and bloody, but it has a jaunty air. " — Reason Online
Posted Mar 29, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " Sometimes feels like two, maybe three movies. Producers must be praying there's one audience for all of them." — Reason Online
Posted Mar 28, 2014
75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " The future of transatlantic amity may hinge on dissuading Shia from ever again attempting an English accent." — Reason Online
Posted Mar 21, 2014
41% Divergent (2014) " Woodley could be on the verge of a career breakthrough of Lawrencian dimensions." — Reason Online
Posted Mar 21, 2014
82% Grand Piano (2014) " We'll accept a certain number of implausibilities in this sort of high-concept thriller. Impossibilities are something else" — Reason Online
Posted Mar 14, 2014
78% Veronica Mars (2014) " Bell's Veronica is still a tough cookie with a nice line in deadpan wisecracks (and now an Internet sex tape, too)." — Reason Online
Posted Mar 14, 2014
92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " A clockwork wedding cake, a caper movie sprinkled with pixie dust, a picture that sends you scrambling for clever metaphors and failing to find them. " — Reason Online
Posted Mar 7, 2014
42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " Severed limbs once again fly, skulls split wetly, and fat gobbets of slo-mo blood squirt through the air, this time in 3D." — Reason Online
Posted Mar 7, 2014
60% Non-Stop (2014) " The screenwriters have apparently never encountered a plot hole they couldn't saunter right past." — Reason Online
Posted Feb 28, 2014
29% Pompeii (2014) " As gaudy genre uproar goes, this isn't bad." — Reason Online
Posted Feb 21, 2014
47% The Pretty One (2014) " As anyone who saw her at full glow in Ruby Sparks might guess, Zoe Kazan is enough to make the movie worth seeing." — Reason Online
