2/4 41% Woman in Gold (2015) " Under Harvey Weinstein's sponsorship, this remarkable story has become a paint-by-numbers variation on the producer's far better "Philomena." " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 31, 2015
1/4 31% Insurgent (2015) " Practically everyone you're watching seems to be wishing they were somewhere else. So you might want to take the hint. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 18, 2015
2/4 72% Danny Collins (2015) " "Danny Collins'' is certainly watchable, but don't go expecting much in the way of surprises. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 18, 2015
0.5/4 7% The Cobbler (2015) " A painfully earnest and totally unfunny magic-realist fable set on the Lower East Side that works in no way whatsoever. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 11, 2015
3/4 92% The Wrecking Crew (2015) " Fascinating ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 11, 2015
1/4 31% Chappie (2015) " I haven't been as happy to see a movie end since the third "Transformers." " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 6, 2015
1.5/4 63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) " Second best by a distressingly large margin, "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is a pointless sequel to an overlong but charming little comedy that was never designed to launch a franchise. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 4, 2015
20% Serena (2015) " The choppily edited and thoroughly wooden "Serena'' fails to catch fire, even when everything literally goes up in flames. Basically, it's "Cold Mountain" without Renée Zellweger. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 27, 2015
0/4 14% The Lazarus Effect (2015) " Looks like it was directed by a blind and deaf person over a weekend on a leftover laboratory set from a TV show and edited with a roulette wheel. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 26, 2015
1/4 63% Maps to the Stars (2015) " This train wreck is nasty and mean without making any coherent point. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 25, 2015

Posted Feb 18, 2015
2.5/4 64% The Rewrite (2015) " Lawrence's script for "The Rewrite'' could have used one, and his direction is uneven, but it's still rewarding watching Grant dispensing his dithery charm surrounded by old pros. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 11, 2015
3/4 59% The Last 5 Years (2015) " Kendrick does the dramatic heavy lifting here as a woman struggling to break free from her husband's large shadow and find her destiny. She nails the comedy as well ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 11, 2015
2/4 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) " A movie so jaw-droppingly awful that you can't wait to see what happens next (and that was without the use of mood-altering substances on my part). " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 5, 2015
1.5/4 28% Wild Card (2015) " "This is the height of my career," says Jason Statham sarcastically in his latest potboiler ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 28, 2015
2/4 37% Black or White (2015) " Despite excellent performances by Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer and other cast members, Mike Binder's racially tinged custody battle drama "Black or White" never achieves much in the way of dramatic credibility. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 28, 2015
1/4 11% The Boy Next Door (2015) " "The Boy Next Door'' wants badly to be a cut-rate "Fatal Attraction,'' but ends up getting more laughs than many comedies. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 22, 2015
1/4 19% Strange Magic (2015) " A jaw-droppingly terrible animated musical that mismatches George Lucas' inane story about a pair of fairy princesses to an oddball selection of the "Star Wars'' creator's favorite pop tunes. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 22, 2015
3/4 75% Match (2015) " Stepping into a role played onstage by Frank Langella - opposite Ray Liotta's Mike - Stewart plumbs the soul of a man comfortable in his own skin despite some huge regrets about his past. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 15, 2015
3/4 91% Farewell, Herr Schwarz (2015) " An absorbing documentary that eloquently explores questions about forgiveness. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 7, 2015
3.5/4 71% Into the Woods (2014) " "Into the Woods'' thankfully retains most of its wit and bite, and showcases two of the year's very best female performances, from Streep and Blunt. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 24, 2014
4/4 99% Selma (2015) " Hollywood's definitive depiction of the 1960s American civil rights movement - as well as perhaps the most timely movie you'll see this year. " ‐ New York Post

0.5/4 28% Annie (2014) " Leapin' lizards! The evergreen Broadway musical "Annie'' strays far from its Depression-era roots with truly dismaying results in this crass, charmless, tineared and lead-footed update. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 18, 2014
1/4 28% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) " An utterly clueless, relentlessly grim and rambling action epic guaranteed to displease devout Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, amuse atheists - and generally bore everyone. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 11, 2014
1/4 71% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) " A lazy, noisy ADHD-addled collection of animated clichés guaranteed to give anyone older than 5 a headache, even if you don't see it in optional 3-D. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 25, 2014
1.5/4 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) " Thinly spreads a half-hour's worth of plot over two plodding hours. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 19, 2014
3/4 81% The Homesman (2014) " Title and director notwithstanding, Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman'' is very much a feminist Western - one painting a vivid picture of how difficult it was for even a strong and determined woman to survive in frontier days. " ‐ New York Post
