82% Nightcrawler (2014) " If Billy Wilder's 'Ace in the Hole' and 'Network' had a mutant baby, it would probably look like Dan Gilroy's 'Nightcrawler'" — New York Post
Posted Sep 7, 2014
92% While We're Young " The most hilarious Woody Allen film in years is directed by Noah Baumbach, with Ben Stiller as basically an updated version of the idealistic documentary filmmaker the Woodman played in 'Crimes and Misdemeanors.'" — New York Post
Posted Sep 7, 2014

Posted Sep 6, 2014
95% Whiplash (2014) " Think John Houseman in "The Paper Chase'' with a touch of Jack Webb's Marine drill sergeant in 'The D.I.,' and you'll get an idea of the extreme hazing and mind games from Simmons that push Teller toward the breaking point." — New York Post
Posted Sep 5, 2014
50% The Judge (2014) " Just watching snarky Chicago lawyer Robert Downey Jr. spar with crotchety father Robert Duvall as he tries to defend the small-town Indiana jurist on a murder rap is worth the price of admission." — New York Post
Posted Sep 5, 2014
3/4 76% The Congress (2014) " A dystopian blend of live-action and animation that acidly comments on some of Hollywood's touchiest issues before drifting off into an existential fog." — New York Post
Posted Sep 3, 2014
2.5/4 52% Frontera (2014) " "Frontera" offers an unsparing look at the plight of illegal immigrants, even if the ending seems too patly convenient." — New York Post
Posted Sep 3, 2014
3/4 29% The Last Of Robin Hood (2014) " Dashing, handsome and self-deprecating, Kevin Kline was born to play Errol Flynn." — New York Post
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/4 97% Love Is Strange (2014) " "Love is Strange'' is very well worth seeing for its two stars, who acutely convey the pain their characters feel over their separation as well as displaying their considerable comic chops to keep things from getting too grim." — New York Post
Posted Aug 20, 2014

Posted Aug 14, 2014
0.5/4 20% Let's Be Cops (2014) " The only truly lethal weapons in the criminally unfunny action comedy "Let's Be Cops'' are the lame script, putrid direction and pair of sitcom stars mugging nonstop in frantic pursuit of laughs that have fled over the state line." — New York Post
Posted Aug 13, 2014
2/4 40% Life After Beth (2014) " Nowhere near as funny as you'd expect with its stellar cast." — New York Post
Posted Aug 13, 2014
3/4 20% Into The Storm (2014) " The found-footage disaster flick "Into the Storm'' is "Twister'' for dummies, but by no means is that an insult. The new film is enormous fun if you're in the right mood." — New York Post
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/4 67% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) " A mouth-watering and charming - if overlong - romantic comedy-drama about an immigrant family opening an Indian restaurant in a most unlikely location: the South of France." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
3/4 95% The Dog (2014) " Keraudren's documentary fills in many fascinating details of Wojtowicz's life ..." — New York Post

Posted Jul 31, 2014
1/4 37% Child Of God (2014) " "Child of God'' is, like the source novel, loosely inspired by the notorious real-life cannibal murderer Ed Gein. So was Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho.'' Nobody left that classic bored - but they sure will be by Franco's film." — New York Post
Posted Jul 30, 2014
0/4 18% And So It Goes (2014) " Thirty years to the week after "When Harry Met Sally,'' Rob Reiner directs the excruciating, mawkish and interminable romantic dramedy "And So It Goes'' with shocking ineptitude." — New York Post
Posted Jul 25, 2014
1/4 18% Sex Tape (2014) " Even for a farce, the situations stretch credulity far beyond the breaking point." — New York Post
Posted Jul 24, 2014
1.5/4 49% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " For all the Mr. Darcy-ish charm Woody's latest surrogate, Oscar winner Colin Firth, can still summon up, it's hard to believe Allen's current muse, played by Emma Stone, would put up with his insults for 10 minutes." — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3.5/4 99% Boyhood (2014) " A heady film experience packed with so many telling details about life in the United States over the past 12 years - and one that makes you care such much about the struggles and foibles of its imperfect characters." — New York Post
Posted Jul 9, 2014
2.5/4 27% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " "Deliver Us From Evil'' expertly serves shivers, buckets of gore - and pretty much every cliché of the genre." — New York Post
Posted Jul 2, 2014
3.5/4 95% Snowpiercer (2014) " Don't miss it - this is enormously fun visionary filmmaking, with a witty script and a great international cast." — New York Post
Posted Jun 25, 2014

Posted Jun 12, 2014
2/4 55% Ping Pong Summer (2014) " Michael Tully's mild tribute to the 1980s - the decade that just won't go away." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
3/4 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " A Tom Cruise action flick with a strong female heroine and a sense of humor? "Edge of Tomorrow'' has both of those, plus a "Groundhog Day''-style gimmick that pays big dividends. Over and over." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2.5/4 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) " The frequently funny "The Grand Seduction'' is a thoroughly pleasant way to pass a couple of hours." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2014
4/4 97% We Are the Best! (2014) " No film I've seen so far this year has provided the sheer moviegoing pleasure of "We Are the Best!''" — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2014
3/4 76% Lucky Them (2014) " A low-key, solidly acted indie charmer from director Megan Griffiths." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2014
1/4 27% The Love Punch (2014) " Manages to be excruciatingly unfunny despite the presence of Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson in the lead roles." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2014
3.5/4 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " "X-Men: Days of Future Past'' blows a breath of fresh air through the musty Marvel universe, which increasingly is all about pandering to hard-core fans rather than trying to make good movies for everybody." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2014
3/4 88% The Discoverers (2014) " Writer-director Schwarz has a lot of fun with this nutty premise. And more important, the twisted dynamics of this particular family ring true." — New York Post
Posted May 15, 2014
3/4 73% Godzilla (2014) " Even in 3-D, these human characters are barely one-dimensional, but in the end that doesn't really matter very much." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2014
97% The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg (2000) " Writer-director Aviva Kempner crafted this love letter to Greenberg by imaginatively weaving interviews with great footage from newsreels and feature films." — New York Post
Posted May 7, 2014
0/4 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " [An] eyeball-gougingly ugly, charm-free animated musical sequel, which is inexplicably opening in thousands of theaters instead of going direct to video." — New York Post
