Posted Mar 10, 2015
68% All The Wilderness (2015) "[Instead of being] "yet another" coming-of-age/identity-quest film [...] All the Wilderness is interlaced with literate and interesting characters. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 20, 2015

22% Dracula Untold (2014) "But for a walk on the wild side with a dangerous rake, look elsewhere. As one of the characters in the film says, the world (at least the movie world) doesn't need a hero, it needs a monster. Got that right. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Sep 25, 2014
83% Alumbrones (2014) "Much of this is in the "who knew" mode, and it's lovely to get extended shots of the art. But the human angle is not skirted either. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Jul 2, 2014
23% Third Person (2014) "Writer-director Paul Haggis' new film will most likely screen soon on long airline flights: perfect for a movie where you sometimes don't know where you are, and with so many plot ellipses you needn't worry if you missed something while in the loo. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 17, 2014
81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) "Facing its issues with such wit and attitude keeps the film from ever being lugubrious. That and Shailene Woodley. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted May 28, 2014
88% The Immigrant (2014) "James Gray's film sticks in your head both for the images it creates, and for those triggered in myth memory, of the immigrant experience in America. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Apr 18, 2014
7% Authors Anonymous (2014) "...Authors Anonymous manages to be sweet-tempered mainly thanks to lead Kaley Cuoco. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014

Posted Mar 27, 2014
23% Shirin In Love (2014) "Shirin in Love, like its protagonist, looks ditzy at first but quickly becomes a thinking woman's romantic comedy, making a lie of recent media claims that the genre is defunct. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Mar 13, 2014
15% Endless Love (2014) "...Endless Love is silly and trumped up, though it may do something for tween girls dreaming over Pettyfer. " ‐ Film Journal International
