1.5/4 57% 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 30% 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 94% 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
2.5/4 50% Le Chef (2014) " Stars veteran Jean Reno as a longtime celebrity chef who may lose control of his Paris restaurant because the young new CEO thinks he's old toque." — New York Post
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3.5/4 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " Jersey Boys tells a familiar story, yes -- but rarely told this well and with this much heart and soul." — New York Post
Posted Jun 18, 2014
3/4 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " Offers some stunningly beautiful sequences and an engaging, if at times quite dark, story line." — New York Post
Posted Jun 12, 2014
2/4 54% 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% 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 63% 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

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 26% 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 92% 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 86% 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 74% 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
Posted May 7, 2014
3/4 88% Chef (2014) " It has lots of smart things to say about social media, criticism and father-son relationships - while also appealing to fans of food porn and mildly raunchy buddy movies." — New York Post
Posted May 7, 2014
0.5/4 54% NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014) " Vanity, thy name is Kevin Spacey." — New York Post
Posted May 1, 2014
1/4 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) " Veteran screenwriter John Pogue, in his second directorial outing, tries repeatedly and mostly unsuccessfully to jolt his audience by amping up the abundant sound effects to ear-shattering levels." — New York Post
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2.5/4 44% Walking With The Enemy (2014) " After 20 shaky opening minutes, first-time director Mark Schmidt finds his footing with this slightly overlong English-language Holocaust drama." — New York Post
Posted Apr 23, 2014
1/4 19% Transcendence (2014) " It's not a horrible premise for a movie, but the execution is exceedingly trite and sloppy." — New York Post
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2/4 46% Heaven Is for Real (2014) " The makers of "Heaven Is for Real'' should have had the faith to let audiences decide whether little Colton is telling the truth about his near-death experience without resorting to the digital equivalent of dry ice." — New York Post
Posted Apr 15, 2014
3/4 74% Oculus (2014) " "Oculus'' eschews the buckets of gore common to R-rated horror movies and takes a relatively subtle, psychological approach - even if the somewhat disappointing ending leaves the door open for a sequel (or three)." — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/4 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " Legendary hipster filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's wryly funny exercise in genre bending hits so many grace notes it ends up being his most satisfying film in years." — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
1/4 86% Under the Skin (2014) " A rather shapeless film where what's happening onscreen is often less interesting than trying to figure out whether the participants recognize they're sharing the cab of a truck with a world-famous actress." — New York Post
Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/4 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Deeply mediocre and ultra-predictable ..." — New York Post
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/4 77% Noah (2014) " Holy ship!" — New York Post
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/4 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " Those with a high tolerance for violence and gore - at one point, Rama battles assassins labeled "Baseball Bat Man'' and "Hammer Girl'' simultaneously - will eat up "The Raid 2.''" — New York Post
Posted Mar 26, 2014
3/4 83% Rob the Mob (2014) " The always distinctive Raymond De Felitta ("City Island'') offers a hilarious mob comedy with virtually no violence, though it's based on a tabloid-ready true story that did not end at all happily." — New York Post
Posted Mar 20, 2014
1.5/4 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " Von Trier has made some wonderful movies ("Breaking the Waves,'' "Melancholia'') but this pretentious snoozer, like "Antichrist," isn't one of them." — New York Post
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/4 41% Divergent (2014) " Two sequels derived from Veronica Roth's novels have already been announced. Hopefully, they'll have more personality than this clunker." — New York Post
Posted Mar 19, 2014
1/4 74% Enemy (2014) " It doesn't add up to much of anything exciting ..." — New York Post
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3.5/4 89% Le Week-End (2014) " A bickering middle-aged English couple return to Paris to celebrate their ill-fated 30th anniversary in this ruefully funny delight from director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi." — New York Post
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3/4 44% The Art of the Steal (2014) " Sobol encourages his excellent cast, which includes the iconic Terence Stamp as a federal informant and Jay Baruchel as the gang's weakest link, to steal scenes left and right." — New York Post
Posted Mar 12, 2014
2/4 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " This movie takes great pains to thank the fans who made this possible by including many characters from the series - a good deal for them, not necessarily so great for the rest of us." — New York Post
Posted Mar 11, 2014
3/4 93% Journey To The West (2014) " The final product is very much Chow - with elaborately staged stunts, slapstick inspired by silent Hollywood, and a silliness that will appeal to kids (as well as some black humor that may take some explaining for younger audiences)." — New York Post
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/4 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " A smart, funny and beautifully designed feature ..." — New York Post
Posted Mar 6, 2014
1/4 55% Interior. Leather Bar. (2014) " It largely consists of Franco musing about depictions of homosexual activity on film." — New York Post
Posted Mar 6, 2014
2.5/4 42% The Face of Love (2014) " It's the wonderful performances by Bening and Harris that make this flawed, somewhat maudlin film worth seeing." — New York Post
Posted Mar 6, 2014
81% The Royal Tenenbaums (2002) " Anderson, who collaborated on the script (as in his previous films) with his college buddy Owen Wilson, gives everyone some of the best dialogue heard in a recent movie." — New York Post
Posted Mar 4, 2014
1/4 60% Non-Stop (2014) " All the tedium of an endless trans-Atlantic flight gets packed into the 105 minutes of "Non-Stop,'' a preposterous "thriller'' providing Oscar winner-turned action star Liam Neeson with his latest paycheck job." — New York Post
Posted Feb 27, 2014
2/4 47% Stalingrad (2014) " Though the performances aren't bad at all, everyone is playing one-note stereotypes in this cat-and-mouse game as Bondarchuk marks time for an impressively staged climax with lots of pyrotechnics." — New York Post
Posted Feb 26, 2014
2/4 29% Pompeii (2014) " A campy guilty pleasure that serves up a "Gladiator'' knockoff as an appetizer to the impressively flame-filled main course." — New York Post
Posted Feb 20, 2014
1/4 15% Endless Love (2014) " Shana Feste's endlessly lame "Endless Love'' remake turns the obsessive sexual heat way down from the infamous 1981 Brooke Shields vehicle - while also tossing out the tragedies of Scott Spencer's acclaimed source novel." — New York Post
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2.5/4 53% Adult World (2014) " "Adult World" proceeds by fits and starts, but fans of Cusack won't want to miss his performance as the petulant poet, whose resistance is inevitably worn down by his persistent fan." — New York Post
Posted Feb 12, 2014
3/4 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " Clooney's low-key directorial effort is not quite an Oscar-caliber movie, though it's got a great cast, a worthy theme and plenty of things to reward adult moviegoers." — New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2014
3/4 82% Charlie Victor Romeo (2014) " You probably don't want to see this gripping 3-D adaptation of an unusual and acclaimed 1999 off-Broadway production just before your next plane trip." — New York Post
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/4 100% Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films 2014 (2014) " The primary exposure for animated shorts in this country is this annual compilation - which, as usual, is being shown along with separate programs of the Oscar-nominated live-action and documentary shorts." — New York Post
