1/4 90% 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 88% Calvary (2014) " Twice I have left a "Calvary" screening feeling dazed and moved." — New York Post
Posted Jul 31, 2014
3/4 60% 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 67% 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 19% 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 90% 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 48% 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 57% 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 40% 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 82% 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 55% 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 43% 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 73% 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 31% 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 89% 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
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2.5/4 91% Bears (2014) " There's only so much editing can do to make a bear story seem like a human one, and the filmmakers (Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey directed) also go to unfortunate lengths to give human characteristics like laziness to the bears." — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
2/4 59% 13 Sins (2014) " The "Saw" formula of a mysterious voice guiding our hero through a series of depravities has gone a bit stale." — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
1/4 7% Authors Anonymous (2014) " Pulling off a broad satire requires great finesse: If, as in the mockumentary "Authors Anonymous," all of the subjects are idiots, why should we care?" — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
2/4 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " I couldn't figure out what these two movies - one larkish but trivial, the other emotionally ambitious - have to do with one another. Neither, apparently, could Turturro." — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
1/4 62% Draft Day (2014) " "Draft Day" is lumbering and predictable, and its hero general manager is so dumb, it should have been called "Dummyball."" — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
1/4 66% The Railway Man (2014) " Colin Firth plays a choo-choo lover and ex-World War II prisoner of war who finds his two great obsessions neatly joining in the trite, hokey message movie "The Railway Man."" — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/4 86% Joe (2014) " If there is a point to it all, I couldn't find it." — New York Post
