79% Results (2015) "A sly little wonder of a film that may end up flying under the radar. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 27, 2015
50% San Andreas (2015) "This film doesn't need a director, which is fortunate because it has Brad Peyton..disaster porn..a listless, heaving mess of a film. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 27, 2015
87% 1001 Grams (2015) "A miniaturist dealing in microcosms that reveal the world...one of the most human films I've seen in recent years, full of insight, sadness and unexpected laughs. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 13, 2015
98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "If there was a rating between Fresh and Rotten, I'd have given it to a movie that aroused extreme ambivalence: an hour of intense pleasure followed by a lot of wheel-spinning. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 12, 2015
87% Slow West (2015) " Maclean takes more interest in the journey than the destination. The stops along the way are alternately life-threatening, illuminating and abruptly, wildly funny. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 11, 2015
43% The D Train (2015) "Marsden is rapidly positioning himself as a worthy comic successor to Christopher MacDonald: that good-looking actor who is potentially any movie's comedy secret weapon. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 8, 2015
92% Ex Machina (2015) "After tantalizing us with increasingly imaginative developments and the promise of catharsis, Garland lets it all dribble away at the end. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 23, 2015
23% Child 44 (2015) "The plotting gets a little sludgy...it runs out of ideas long before it plods to the final credits " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 18, 2015
77% Alex of Venice (2015) "Pleasant and occasionally touching, without ever being really compelling. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 18, 2015
49% True Story (2015) "The limitations of its script and of Jonah Hill's performance in the central role keep it from transcending its shortcomings. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 15, 2015
51% Woman in Gold (2015) "A great movie? Probably not - but a compelling and involving one, dealing with an important moment in recent history? Woman in Gold is absolutely that. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2015
84% While We're Young (2015) "Funny and smart, finding humor in cultural pretension without taking cheap shots. That's a lot harder than it sounds. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 26, 2015
29% Get Hard (2015) "Get Hard isn't terrible. It's funny often enough to stave off impatience. That's something, I guess. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 24, 2015
16% The Gunman (2015) "The writing is wooden and Penn obviously knows it... If Penn is helpless against exposition-heavy dialogue, what chance do the other actors stand? " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 18, 2015
88% Traitors "There are not a lot of actual incidents in the film: no chases or shootouts. Yet Gullette creates real tension, through silences, quiet encounters with the drug lord and the extremely expressive face of Ben Acha. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 10, 2015
62% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "Sequel-itis: Let's take this delightful little surprise hit and try to duplicate its success without doing anything original. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 5, 2015
97% An Honest Liar (2015) "a fascinating character: quick-witted, still relatively spry for his age, with an air of mystery, even when he's simply telling the truth. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 4, 2015
61% Maps to the Stars (2015) "There's a difference between tart and vinegary and Maps to the Stars is consistently on the wrong side of it. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 27, 2015
56% Focus (2015) "Works hard and does manage to generate entertainment. But the strain shows. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 26, 2015
96% Wild Tales (2015) "Film-making at its most friskily entertaining and surprising. Even if it doesn't win the Oscar on Sunday, it's a film to be prized for its audacious energy. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 20, 2015
79% McFarland USA (2015) "A well-made and unabashed feel-good film that has the advantage of being true. How often do you find that? " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 19, 2015
74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Vaughn finds new ways to deconstruct and reconstruct the spy-thriller... blends Hong Kong action with state-of-the-art digital effects to create breathless set pieces. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 12, 2015
96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "Comedy is a very subjective thing and I can imagine people who won't find What We Do in the Shadows funny. But I can't imagine that they have happy lives. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 12, 2015
25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "The good news is that Jupiter Ascending is actually not bad. But that's not the same as being great - or even good. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 4, 2015
11% The Boy Next Door (2015) "This dreadful film mistakes gross violence for thrills and formula setups for action sequences. J-Lo, usually a controlled screen presence, mostly looks hapless here. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 22, 2015
82% Black Sea (2015) "The kind of movie that makes you hold your breath when things get tense. How long can you hold yours? " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 21, 2015
34% Blackhat (2015) "The script is a mix of talky exposition and gun battles, the lowest form of cinematic action..a cyber-thriller that's distinctly short on thrills, not to mention credibility. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 14, 2015
76% Match (2015) "A slight but affecting film built around a stirring central performance by Patrick Stewart, who lifts this small indie to another level altogether. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 13, 2015
97% Two Days, One Night (2014) "Cotillard does a stirring job portraying the repeated triumph of will over fear...A film that places value on the simple human attributes of empathy and sacrifice. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 26, 2014
71% Into the Woods (2014) "Busy without being involving, energetic without having much excitement... And the lesson is this: Everyone dies, sooner or later. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 26, 2014
51% Unbroken (2014) "Readers will be sorely disappointed by how shrunken Zamperini's experiences seem...feels more like a Hollywood formula than a hero's true story. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 24, 2014
73% American Sniper (2015) "Eastwood displays the futility of the Iraq war, but, given more than 10 years of films with the same ideas and images, it's not a startling or even moving message. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 24, 2014
72% Big Eyes (2014) "A solidly entertaining film, one that finds the humor in an unfamiliar tale of human art and artifice. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 23, 2014
46% The Gambler (2014) "It's a mess, pure and simple, and remaking it turns out to be a sucker's bet. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 23, 2014
99% Selma (2015) "A film about courage and strength that should be required viewing in this, a nation whose sense of history extends barely as far as last week. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 22, 2014
61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Jackson brings it home with a bang with this final film...exciting and emotional..flies by in a roiling series of climaxes, each carrying a new level of tension and thrill. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 18, 2014
98% Mr. Turner (2014) " Leigh and Pope simply let Turner exist in the landscapes he's trying to capture, creating the cinematic equivalent of Turner's panoramic washes. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 17, 2014
73% Inherent Vice (2015) "Treats plot like a rental car: something to be abused and abandoned, squandering a strong start in an orgy of wheel-spinning. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 15, 2014
90% Wild (2014) "An exceptional visual version of what could have been largely an interior journey...manages to tell a tale as large and daunting as the great outdoors. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 4, 2014
62% Life Partners (2014) "Settles for sitcom setups and punchlines.... feels both slight and generic. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 2, 2014

Posted Nov 25, 2014
65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "I'd be lying if I said that it could stand on its own. That, of course, is the difference between a good sequel and a good movie. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Nov 21, 2014

Posted Nov 12, 2014
81% Beyond the Lights (2014) "Romantic, at times melodramatic, "Beyond the Lights" is entertaining and emotionally involving. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Nov 11, 2014
61% A Five Star Life (2014) "Light but with a real heart...See this film, if only to live vicariously through her job. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Nov 7, 2014

Posted Nov 7, 2014
50% Viva la libertà (2014) "Haunting, surprising in its humor and beautifully served by the twin performances of Servillo. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Nov 7, 2014
79% The Theory of Everything (2014) "Well-crafted but formulaic, a glossier version of the kind of movie the Lifetime network shows every month. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
