Posted Aug 13, 2015
67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress who plays a German, is more convincing speaking English than Armie Hammer ... a heavy-footed film that barely gets by on one actor's charm. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine

Posted Jul 23, 2015
79% Ant-Man (2015) "One of the summer's most entertaining... one of only a handful of comic-book movies to transcend the limits of that increasingly cookie-cutter genre. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 16, 2015
85% Trainwreck (2015) "Could easily be 20 minutes shorter...If Apatow had made a movie with the young Henny Youngman, he'd have turned him into the king of the two-liners. " ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Posted May 27, 2015
82% 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
91% 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 Apr 18, 2015
45% 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
52% 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
83% 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
17% 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 (2015) "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

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
75% 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 4, 2015
10% 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

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
72% 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
