19% Transcendence (2014) " Trolls in the waters of both Philip K. Dick and William S. Gibson (without ever really getting a solid bite)." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 18, 2014
58% Fading Gigolo (2014) " A film that has laughs, heart, romance and several other things to recommend its unconventional charms." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 18, 2014
100% Ilo Ilo (2014) " A subtle, touching tale..It never quite goes where you expect it to, choosing nuance over broad strokes and smaller moments over splashy effects" — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
59% Dom Hemingway (2014) " Wildly funny, delightfully stylized and brutally violent at times. You'll never be bored." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
86% Alan Partridge (2014) " The jokes are silly, smart and everything in between...a fine idiocy, but done with a touch that is alternately hilariously deadpan and outlandishly stupid. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
85% Under the Skin (2014) " A quiet, moody sci-fi tale..has an experimental feel and gives up few of its secrets without a struggle. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " At almost two-and-a-half hours, it's easily an hour too long...Too much of the first two hours, unfortunately, is dedicated to action scenes that are merely gunplay. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
93% Mistaken for Strangers (2014) " Like a nonfiction Chris Farley movie...it's never less than entertaining, though not as the redemption story Tom Berninger probably thinks he's created. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 27, 2014
80% The Raid 2 (2014) " Unbearably tense..it may test the limits of even veteran action fans - or satisfy them in a way they never thought possible." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 27, 2014
40% Cesar Chavez (2014) " Pena captures Chavez's quietly intense commitment, but the movie doesn't really capture the drama without making it seem melodramatic." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 27, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " There's neither the thrill of discovery nor the excitement of watching a bold cinematic artist grapple with tough material. Aronofsky grapples but it's a draw. At best." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 27, 2014
90% A Birder's Guide To Everything (2014) " A delightful coming-of-age tale...sweet and funny, with plenty of heart and intelligence. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
83% Rob the Mob (2014) " The characters have an interior life that is often surprisingly funny, thanks to the offbeat timing of Pitt and Arianda. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
47% Blood Ties (2014) " Instead of building to a climax, it simply rolls to a stop." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
76% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " Equal parts rhetorical show-offishness, lad-like sexual attitudes, cinematic brattiness...the most boring movie about sex in recent memory. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " A witty, engaging sequel...just as fast, funny and entertaining as its predecessor." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
41% Divergent (2014) " It's not bad ... but not great either..seems to be marking time until the story really kicks in, which doesn't happen until the final 20 minutes " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
63% Bad Words (2014) " Make no mistake: The humor is nasty, in all senses of the word. But I'm a sucker for a truly vulgar, unhinged comedy like this." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 13, 2014
92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " It is the deft, exceptionally light touch that Fiennes brings to moments both comic and serious that gives this engine its fuel." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 5, 2014
44% The Face of Love (2014) " Films like this - a relationship built on a fundamental lie or omission - are a formula, but Posin figures out how to make it feel less weird than touching." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Mar 5, 2014
60% Non-Stop (2014) " Neeson spends the movie looking pained, as though he's contemplating the size of the tax bite on his paycheck...as forgettable as an airline meal and about as flavorful." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 26, 2014
96% The Lunchbox (2014) " The film is a marvel of understatement and intelligence, exploring the loneliness and regret two people are able to express to each other, perhaps because they are strangers." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 25, 2014
45% In Secret (2014) " A stylish, nervy film, one that captures the manners and mores of its 19th-century setting while making the emotions it deals with utterly contemporary. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 21, 2014
89% Omar (2014) " Bakri has a simmering energy and stark humanity..This thriller is about more than the sum of its parts." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 20, 2014
98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " You can't kid a kidder, and she's a truth machine set on "Play" at all times. She may kid herself occasionally, but you get the impression it's a rare occurrence." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 18, 2014
57% Bluebird " A touching and adventurous little film, filled with exceptional acting...lets the actors think and feel, without forcing them to act out in obvious ways." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 13, 2014
13% Winter's Tale (2014) " Goldsman has no trouble shmaltzing it up in a way that undercuts the magic...awash in incredibly cheap-looking special effects. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 12, 2014
33% The Monuments Men (2014) " Imagine Saving Private Ryan told to you by a dusty docent on an art-gallery tour and you get the idea. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 5, 2014
96% The Lego Movie (2014) " Will not only amuse kids and parents alike, but will let the adults keep laughing during the repeated viewings that inevitably will result when it reaches home video. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Feb 4, 2014
88% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " Like a cinematic magic trick, one that unveils itself over the course of roughly 90 minutes." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 30, 2014
56% At Middleton (2014) " A small film with big feelings, built around a pair of engaging performances. It's absolutely worth tracking down. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 29, 2014
54% Hank: Five Years From the Brink (2014) " A worthy film and an important document..It's a narrative we need to understand and learn from." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 28, 2014
33% Labor Day (2014) " Reitman never winks at the melodrama of the romance. Nor does he overdo it...not without its flaws, but if you let yourself get caught up in it, you won't be sorry you did." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 27, 2014
68% Visitors (2014) " If you let it, Visitors casts a spell, unlike any film you've seen in a long time." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 24, 2014
23% Gimme Shelter (2014) " Given the figures on the relationship between teen motherhood and poverty, this movie seems woefully short on references to sex education, birth-control and family planning." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 24, 2014
86% Like Father, Like Son (2014) " This film is too nuanced and understated for any Hollywood studio to get right. See this version before someone makes an inferior copy that gets more attention." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 16, 2014
18% Ride Along (2014) " Hart's flailing and Cube's slow-burn scowl are supposed to be the funny part. That, unfortunately, is an inaccurate assumption. Even the cheap laughs are expensive here." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 15, 2014
80% Maidentrip (2014) " You watch her sailing and you get caught up in the relaxing, infinite quality of the pursuit: the sounds, the colors, the feeling - you are and must be totally in the moment. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 14, 2014
—— Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? (2014) " A bittersweet tale of self-discovery for all involved." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 13, 2014
43% Cold Comes The Night (2014) " You want to root for this little movie because it works so hard. But, finally, to not nearly enough effect." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jan 9, 2014
30% Grudge Match (2013) " The script for this film is never sharp or savvy enough to counteract both the ick factor and the simple lackluster quality of it all." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 24, 2013
76% Lone Survivor (2014) " A gripping tale of men pushed to the extreme and rising to the occasion, right up to the moment they no longer can." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 23, 2013
49% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " The film runs out of steam in its second half. It keeps chugging along, but it feels like Stiller and crew are going through the motions." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 23, 2013
77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " He's not really a wolf - he's more like a hyena, a scavenger, a bottom-feeder. Why would you want to know his story?" — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 22, 2013
64% August: Osage County (2013) " As bitter and brutal - and witty and entertaining - as anything since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 22, 2013
25% Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) " Like a more expensive Land Before Time: bad writing, corny jokes and a weak (and familiar) plot. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 19, 2013
75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Only Adam Sandler makes movies that are less entertaining." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 18, 2013
94% Her (2014) " A daring piece of work...turns what could have been a one-joke movie into something much deeper and more emotionally thoughtful." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 17, 2013
79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Will leave you wet-eyed and appreciative for it. It's a personal story that proves to be more than a little universal." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Dec 10, 2013
93% American Hustle (2013) " This film has actual heart and soul. That's because Russell looks at the whys of these people's lives in ways that make this movie jump to life at unexpected moments." — Hollywood & Fine
