77% Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger (2014) " Berlinger may be our premier true-crime documentarian (though he has many other arrows in his quiver)...a crisp (if dense) examination of a shameful and tragic story." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 24, 2014
91% The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) " Straightforward in telling Swartz' story..a solid film on an important topic, " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 24, 2014
83% Begin Again (2014) " A sweet, engaging film which, if a tad too shaggy, is a warm, funny change of pace from most summer fare." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 24, 2014
95% Snowpiercer (2014) " Excessive in an interesting way for much longer than you think it could be. Unfortunately, that's not long enough. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 24, 2014
75% The Last Sentence (2014) " I was riveted, thanks to Christensen's fearlessly etched performance and Troell's spare story-telling style." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
98% A Summer's Tale (2014) " An emotionally rich tale with lots of tasty talk about the way men and women deal with each other, knowingly or otherwise." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
91% Venus in Fur (2014) " It's tricky, tasty and tense...Seigner holds her own - and then some - opposite the subtly expressive Mathieu Amalric." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
24% Third Person (2014) " Ambitious, sometimes perplexing, but never less than involving...the same mysterious quality of the European films of the 1960s that impacted American films in the 1970s. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
53% Jersey Boys (2014) " Competent but unremarkable, an entertainment that evaporates from the mind the minute the credits roll." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
76% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) " Gordon himself comes across as what he is - a smart hustler with an eye for the main chance, a guy with great stories who isn't a great story-teller. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
85% Ivory Tower (2014) " An infuriating film, in its description of the way that a college education threatens to bankrupt generations while promising a future it may not be able to deliver." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
59% Hellion (2014) " A downbeat father-son story that moves too slowly to earn the viewer's continued forbearance." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
66% The Rover (2014) " Has the feel of the fascinatingly aimless late '60s westerns of Monte Hellman. So you'll need patience to appreciate it." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
54% The Signal (2014) " Smart and thrilling, without ever really tipping its hand about just what game it's playing. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " An at-best-mediocre comedy with a few more laughs than the limp 2012 film..like so much contemporary comedy, isn't really about anything, except its own meta-ness. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2014
83% Dormant Beauty (2014) " Like Bellocchio's draggy, overrated Vincere, this movie wants us to believe in its depth, while mostly just skimming the surface. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
52% Trust Me (2014) " This is Clark Gregg's film and he brings the right blend of salesmanship, anger and flop-sweat desperation to the role. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
88% Obvious Child (2014) " It's a small film but should provide a big launch for Jenny Slate. Now I want to see her in a comedy with Kathryn Hahn." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
89% Willow Creek (2014) " The final 20 minutes of the film prove once again that what you can't see is infinitely more frightening than what you can..leaves you goosey and tense. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " Promises more than a few tear-soaked hankies...earns its tears with strong performances and a restraint that help you invest in characters whose departure you will feel." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " Fast, exciting, surprisingly witty and just plain satisfying..the first really exciting movie of the summer-the most original, the most invigorating and the most entertaining." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2014
33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " Think of MacFarlane as a post-modern classicist, who loves his source material, even if he can't resist the impulse to mock its conventions..I laughed frequently and heartily." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 30, 2014
63% The Grand Seduction (2014) " The plot holes are gigantic, but the spirit is so playful and breezy that you can sit back and enjoy the ride." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 30, 2014
48% Maleficent (2014) " It's transformed from a fairy tale into every movie you've ever seen about a curmudgeon who learns to open his/her heart and love an adorable child." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 30, 2014
76% Lucky Them (2014) " Church is a comic marvel..But the film ultimately succumbs to both obvious plotting and the law of diminishing returns." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 30, 2014
42% Words And Pictures (2014) " The charmingly self-destructive Owen and the spiky Binoche make an interesting match..Fred Schepisi is an old pro who knows how to sand off the rough edges." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 22, 2014
27% The Love Punch (2014) " Fairly lightweight, but Brosnan and Thompson bring such a sense of fun to the slapstick that you ignore how insubstantial it all is. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 22, 2014
91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " An OK comic-book movie which, like so many of these efforts, has a reach that far exceeds its grasp. It's not bad but it could have been lots better. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 22, 2014
73% Godzilla (2014) " It's hard to imagine anyone who's serious about film taking this movie seriously...It doesn't suck. The fact that it exists, however, does. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 14, 2014

Posted May 13, 2014
75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " A ramshackle affair...It's diverting, but insubstantial." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 13, 2014
86% The Immigrant (2014) " Roils with passion, but does it with a quiet intensity that is startlingly effective." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 13, 2014
61% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " McCarthy's script has an emotional honesty and a spareness that make it seem sincere rather than schmaltzy..Will lift your spirits and choke you up at the same time. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 13, 2014
34% God's Pocket (2014) " Gritty, witty and downbeat, an alternately thoughtful and juicy adaptation of Pete Dexter's novel. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
23% Devil's Knot (2014) " You would think that the horrific case of the West Memphis Three would not need further retelling. This film has little to add to the conversation. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
82% The Double (2014) " A fascinating and disquieting experience. If you're looking for a movie that will push you out of your comfort zone, look no further." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
82% Fed Up (2014) " The information contained in the film is important - and the message is still a vital one because the problem is ongoing." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
88% Chef (2014) " A movie that manufactures its feel-good status without really earning it. There's nothing wrong with it that an injection of tension (or story) wouldn't improve." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
73% Neighbors (2014) " It's not great - but it is funny. That excuses a lot." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2014
52% NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014) " A valentine to the life of the theater..the kind of movie that allows you to see other people's passion at work." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 30, 2014
89% For A Woman (2014) " It pulls you in without ever hinting at where it might take you. And that's a gift." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 30, 2014
53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Overstuffed, exhaustingly elaborate and just not that much fun...More is definitely less in this piece of Hollywood product." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 30, 2014
81% The Bachelor Weekend (The Stag) (2014) " The dialogue crackles and the comic action escalates in unexpected ways that will surprise you into guffaws..provides laughter with a regularity that is not to be sniffed at." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 30, 2014
83% Belle (2014) " Stirring film, capable of moving you even as it gives you a new perspective from the past on an issue that continues to plague us, here in the future." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 30, 2014
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
54% 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
58% Dom Hemingway (2014) " Wildly funny, delightfully stylized and brutally violent at times. You'll never be bored." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Apr 1, 2014
88% 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
