50% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " It's 100 solid minutes of wearying pastiche, and I found myself checking my watch a lot." — New York Post
Posted Aug 21, 2014
2/4 81% The One I Love (2014) " Like many movies that premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, "The One I Love" has plenty of story - for a 30-minute TV episode, in this case of "The Twilight Zone."" — New York Post
Posted Aug 21, 2014
3/4 31% When The Game Stands Tall (2014) " 'When the Game Stands Tall" is nearly as good as the average episode of TV's "Friday Nights Lights," which makes it better than most movies and one of the better sports films of recent years." — New York Post
Posted Aug 21, 2014
2.5/4 86% The Trip To Italy (2014) " As the film moseyed on I wished director Michael Winterbottom would sharpen his focus a bit and get to the point, any point." — New York Post
Posted Aug 13, 2014
1/4 21% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) " The comedy-action mash-up is as weird as if the Dark Knight took a break from belting the Joker to plug Pizza Hut and bang out a hiphop beat on his nunchucks." — New York Post
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3.5/4 81% Rich Hill (2014) " The title is a woozy irony: The three high-school boys portrayed in the documentary "Rich Hill" will never be rich, though this gently heartbreaking film certainly is." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
1/4 72% What If (2014) " The movie is saturated with cute, teeming with cute, rancid with cute. I'd endured all a man could fairly be expected to take when I glanced at my watch and realized there were still 95 minutes to go." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
1/4 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " "Guardians of the Galaxy" brings to mind some of the most unforgettable sci-fi event movies of the last 30 years. Alas, those films are "Howard the Duck" and "Green Lantern."" — New York Post
Posted Jul 31, 2014
4/4 89% Calvary (2014) " Twice I have left a "Calvary" screening feeling dazed and moved." — New York Post
Posted Jul 31, 2014
3/4 64% Lucy (2014) " Besson keeps the pedal down for 90 breathless minutes, sprinkling the road with dry wit but occasionally taking detours into beautiful, quiet side streets." — New York Post
Posted Jul 24, 2014
1.5/4 73% A Letter to Momo (2014) " A comic adventure that suffers from a dearth of both laughs and thrills." — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
1/4 17% Very Good Girls (2014) " A drama that feels like an old person's idea of what young people are like." — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/4 91% A Most Wanted Man (2014) " More than 100 minutes into "A Most Wanted Man," a CIA officer asks, "What are we trying to achieve here?" Viewers can be forgiven for replying, "If you don't know, why should we?"" — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/4 49% I Origins (2014) " "I Origins" has a pleasing way of working expansive ideas into a suspenseful, twisting story line, even if it occasionally has to wrench the story around tight turns." — New York Post
Posted Jul 17, 2014
1/4 58% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) " A plodding horror flick that mistakenly thinks it has big ideas." — New York Post
Posted Jul 17, 2014
1/4 0% Persecuted (2014) " The Lord works in mysterious ways but "Persecuted" works in blundering, obvious ways, straining a Christianity-under-attack theme through a dopey thriller." — New York Post
Posted Jul 16, 2014
3/4 41% Wish I Was Here (2014) " If this movie amounts to an elongated sitcom, it's a pretty good sitcom." — New York Post
Posted Jul 16, 2014
3.5/4 91% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " For two hours of breathless drama, you forget you're watching actors grunting like chimps and hope two rival civilizations can work together." — New York Post
Posted Jul 10, 2014
1.5/4 22% A Long Way Down (2014) " "A Long Way Down" may prove uniquely inspirational: It's bound to make audience members want to kill themselves." — New York Post
Posted Jul 9, 2014
1/4 15% Rage (2014) " A dopey mob thriller about an ex-killer turned real estate developer trying to find his daughter's murderers." — New York Post
Posted Jul 9, 2014
3/4 97% Life Itself (2014) " Ebert's honesty, his industry and most of all his bottomless enthusiasm for his métier make for a lasting monument." — New York Post
Posted Jun 30, 2014
1/4 49% Earth to Echo (2014) " Even at a cramped and frenetic 82 minutes, the movie feels long. That's what happens when the audience can guess everything that's going to happen in advance." — New York Post
Posted Jun 30, 2014
2/4 83% Begin Again (2014) " If "Once" was a bracing blast of cool spring water, "Begin Again" is a can of Fanta. If "Once" was a piano, "Begin Again" is a keytar. If "Once" was Otis Redding, "Begin Again" is Bruno Mars." — New York Post
Posted Jun 26, 2014
2.5/4 91% The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) " May his death not be in vain." — New York Post
Posted Jun 26, 2014
1.5/4 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Loud, ridiculous and nonsensical - even for a Transformers movie ..." — New York Post
Posted Jun 26, 2014
0.5/4 24% Third Person (2014) " "Third Person" has nothing to say and spends 2 1/2 hours not saying it." — New York Post
Posted Jun 18, 2014
2/4 65% The Rover (2014) " Despite the dense dust-caked atmosphere and a spiky, unnerving score by Antony Partos, Michôd's film adds up to little more than existentialist moaning punctuated by the occasional gunfight." — New York Post
Posted Jun 12, 2014
3/4 54% The Signal (2014) " Though you could argue that Eubank simply throws in bits of a dozen classic sci-fi movies without ever making them cohere, the way he springs open his various trapdoors makes the film an entertaining tumble down the rabbit hole." — New York Post
Posted Jun 12, 2014
2/4 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " What's the difference between "21 Jump Street" and "22 Jump Street"? Same as the difference between getting a 21 and a 22 at blackjack." — New York Post
Posted Jun 11, 2014
3/4 85% Borgman (2014) " A sickening horror parable disguised as a comedy of mores, the Netherlands' "Borgman" is a rarity: a genuinely shocking, upsetting movie." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
1.5/4 87% Obvious Child (2014) " Simply a bad rom-com." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2.5/4 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " In the second half, with the forced jauntiness largely foregone, the movie takes a deep breath and realizes it's nobler to be an effective formula drama than a wan comedy." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2.5/4 84% Night Moves (2014) " An eco-parable about domestic terrorists turns into a suspenseful noir." — New York Post
Posted May 29, 2014
3/4 63% Filth (2014) " A cop caper that more than lives up to its name." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2014
3.5/4 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " MacFarlane is just passable as a leading man, but as a director and co-writer with two others he has a wider comic imagination than "Blazing Saddles." For every so-so gag there are three genius ones." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2014
1/4 14% Blended (2014) " If "Funny People" is any indication, Sandler hates himself, and in "Blended" he invites us to join him." — New York Post
Posted May 22, 2014
1/4 42% Words And Pictures (2014) " Clive Owen stumbles around the scenery doing unfortunate drunken-writer shtick in "Words and Pictures," a formula movie whose script is yet more unfortunate." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2014
2.5/4 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " Cédric Klapisch's film is meandering and cutesy, but his characters are endearing and every so often he comes up with a deft insight, such as how this city's streets are like a flayed zombie." — New York Post
Posted May 15, 2014
2.5/4 67% A Short History Of Decay (2014) " Maren's script isn't deep, but it's heartfelt without being sticky, suggesting that the best way to deal with aging parents is to savor every tender frustration while you can." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2014
3/4 83% The Double (2014) " Ayoade's breathtakingly realized oddity will appeal to fans of David Lynch and the comic surrealism of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil."" — New York Post
Posted May 9, 2014
2/4 61% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Despite the pulsing South Asian score that gives the film some energy, it's not even a slumdog hundredaire." — New York Post
Posted May 9, 2014
2/4 73% Neighbors (2014) " "Neighbors" seems to have originated in a butcher shop: It stars a slab of beef and features a whole lot of sausage jokes. To me it looks like a turkey, but it seems poised to bring home the bacon." — New York Post
Posted May 8, 2014
2/4 33% Stage Fright (2014) " "Stage Fright" starts out as a funny musical mashup - "Glee" meets"Friday the 13th" - but winds up indulging slasher-flick clichés instead of spoofing them." — New York Post
Posted May 8, 2014
3.5/4 35% God's Pocket (2014) " Neither over-sentimentalizing nor condescending toward the working-class people in the film, Slattery sees the humanity in his self-defeating and ignorant characters." — New York Post
Posted May 7, 2014
0.5/4 31% Bad Johnson (2014) " A buddy comedy that reeks like stale underpants." — New York Post
Posted May 1, 2014
2/4 47% Blood Glacier (2014) " As if climate change weren't worrying enough, studies show it's leading to an uptick in the production of cheesy German-language monster flicks." — New York Post
Posted May 1, 2014
2/4 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " All I heard was the sound of paychecks being cashed by everyone going through the motions for this perfunctory sequel. It's as much computer program as movie." — New York Post
Posted Apr 25, 2014
1/4 26% Brick Mansions (2014) " Dystopia's supposed to be worse than what's in the papers, fellas. Try to keep up." — New York Post
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/4 88% Locke (2014) " Writer-director Steven Knight keeps the gimmick going with new complications Locke thinks he can manage with his typical supreme competence." — New York Post
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2.5/4 75% Bicycling with Moliere (2014) " An amiable French buddy comedy, "Bicycling With Molière" is worth a ride." — New York Post
