54% Lovelace (2013) " Seyfried's eager-to-please Linda Lovelace seems like a hostage in her own life, reminiscent of another famously pilloried female of the period, Patty Hearst. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Aug 9, 2013
68% Elysium (2013) " Neill Blomkamp is the real thing: a visionary filmmaker with a headful of dystopia and the story-telling ability to give it some punch." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Aug 8, 2013
47% We're The Millers (2013) " I laughed a lot during this brisk, consistently funny movie...counts on comedy shocks for laughs - but it makes them outlandishly weird and surprising. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Aug 7, 2013
92% In a World... (2013) " Announces the arrival of a new triple-threat talent: Lake Bell..a delight at Sundance, it arrives in the dog days of summer like a cool breeze." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Aug 6, 2013
64% 2 Guns (2013) " A film with wit, tension and sheer headlong pace to grab and hold your attention for a brisk 106 minutes..fast and funny, definitely the smartest action movie of the summer." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 30, 2013

Posted Jul 29, 2013
69% The Wolverine (2013) " An extremely entertaining comic-book movie - though a comic-book movie nonetheless...not great but, hey, it's good enough." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 26, 2013
52% The To Do List (2013) " Plaza is a minimalist who knows how to do a lot with a little..a girl-power comedy about one young woman seizing the reins of her own sexuality." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 25, 2013
91% Blue Jasmine (2013) " Not just one of the best films of the summer; it's one of the best of the year, a drama with enough laughs to underscore just how tragic its portrait really is. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 24, 2013
42% Red 2 (2013) " The kind of movie where all the best jokes are in the trailer...as thoroughly unnecessary as anything out there, with the possible exception of The Lone Ranger." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 19, 2013
40% Only God Forgives (2013) " Wrong-headed, self-indulgent and pretentious...Gosling gives virtually the same performance as in Drive, which reveals its seams and shortcomings. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 18, 2013
86% The Conjuring (2013) " It calls to mind films that understood that the less you saw, the spooker it got..It's as scary a film as I've seen in a long time." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 17, 2013
98% Blackfish (2013) " Will shake you up and upset you. At a minimum, it might make some people rethink where they're going on their next vacation." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 16, 2013
80% Crystal Fairy (2013) " A witty riff on the ugly American...Further proof that Cera has a lot more range (and daring) than haters give him credit for. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 12, 2013
93% Fruitvale Station (2013) " Captures the fear that seems to drive too much of race relations in this country, that blend of unease and false assumption that kills communication and leads to tragedy. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 11, 2013
72% Pacific Rim (2013) " There's not a drop of irony in del Toro's film, nothing cynical..I find it all kind of refreshing, in a time where sarcasm and meta are the ruling attitudes. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 10, 2013
10% Killing Season (2013) " Calling this film a cat-and-mouse game would insult felines and rodents, both of which are much smarter than this movie." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 9, 2013
31% The Lone Ranger (2013) " The best thing I can say is it's not in 3D. But it's barely one-dimensional...Depp proves that it's possible to overact without ever changing your expression." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jul 1, 2013
50% White House Down (2013) " Even more symptomatic of how badly dumbed-down big-budget action has become...Emmerich is a bombastic hack, not as cynical, perhaps, as Michael Bay, but just as soulless. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 26, 2013

Posted Jun 21, 2013
78% Monsters University (2013) " Pixar has the kind of layered, lovingly crafted humor that the best TV sit-coms have; there's an ease to the cleverness, an unpretentious, highly skilled approach to comedy." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 20, 2013
64% Unfinished Song (2013) " A film that makes you feel a lot without resenting it. You wish it were better, but it's good enough not to make you begrudge its shortcomings." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 19, 2013
87% The Attack (2013) " We are left at the end with imponderables and questions, things that will ricochet around your brain long after this compelling and unsettling movie ends." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 18, 2013
56% Man of Steel (2013) " Has something that both "Dark Knight" films lacked: excitement. It grabs you viscerally, delivers emotionally. It may be the best big movie of the summer." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 14, 2013
60% The Bling Ring (2013) " Burrows deep into a social strata that seems to float just below the surface of everyday consciousness...You can't help but engage. At least I couldn't." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 13, 2013
83% This Is the End (2013) " Witty and raunchy - alternately juvenile and sophisticated, drawing laughs from all parts of the comedy spectrum. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 12, 2013
99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) " It's hard to imagine another documentary this year that will be as uplifting, entertaining and moving...It is the musical cure for whatever ails you." — Hollywood & Fine

89% The Iran Job (2013) " If you invest in Kevin Sheppard's story, it will pay off." — Hollywood & Fine

Posted Jun 7, 2013
67% The Prey (2013) " A tightly constructed little suspense machine, as neatly plotted as an advanced calculus problem...builds to a literal cliff-hanger." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 6, 2013
38% The Purge (2013) " Has one good idea and little notion of what to do with it. Unfortunately, that's enough for most audiences." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 6, 2013
84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) " Acker might as well be pitted against a body pillow, so shapeless and soft is Denisoff's presence." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 5, 2013
23% Violet & Daisy (2013) " Imagine a script by Quentin Tarantino, directed by Wes Anderson - and you have an idea of just how surprising this film can be. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 4, 2013
75% The Kings of Summer (2013) " A coming-of-age tale that touches a lot of bases and explores a variety of tones in ways that most films are too timid to do." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted Jun 1, 2013
74% The East (2013) " Thought-provoking even as it entertains. It moves with a nimble, sure-footed speed as it pulls you into its shadowy world." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 29, 2013
88% Fill the Void (2013) " Take it on its own terms, as a compelling emotional drama about an impossible situation." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 28, 2013
19% The Hangover Part III (2013) " The people who want to see it will see it, no matter how bad it is...You have much better ways to waste your time, I'm sure." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 24, 2013
98% Before Midnight (2013) " Never less than compelling, generally entertaining and sometimes piercing. The acting matches the script: incisive, unshowy, yet fiercely honest." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 23, 2013
68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " How about a give-back program in which the studios donate one car to charity for each car they smash up in movies like this?" — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 22, 2013
93% We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks (2013) " Watch it - and then try to get worked up about any of the phony scandals that currently preoccupy the media. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 21, 2013
42% The English Teacher (2013) " Moore shows physical-comedy chops that are both admirable and quite funny..a small but very funny treat with a cast to die for." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 17, 2013
48% Black Rock (2013) " It feels amateurish, as though it was made up as they went along. The violence - because that's what most of the action consists of - feels phony. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 17, 2013
75% Pieta (2013) " With its dazzlingly cynical story and intensely squalid setting, it's a trip to the dark side - indeed, the darkest side." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 16, 2013
87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) " Even more entertaining than Abrams' first one...the first real blockbuster hit of the summer. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 15, 2013
93% Frances Ha (2013) " Baumbach's acerbic wit seems to have been diluted by the watery Gerwig, who seems to have no flavor whatsoever...like viewing the outtakes from a movie you don't want to see." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 14, 2013
35% Aftershock (2013) " You can only listen to so much screaming and crying before it stops having the desired effect (ratcheting up the viewer's stress level) and simply becomes grating. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 10, 2013
95% Stories We Tell (2013) " One of the year's best films: funny, moving, thought-provoking - and so personal that it strikes universal chords." — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 9, 2013
85% Sightseers (2013) " Like the slow-cooking version of a road comedy, yielding tasty results thanks to the craft and patience of the filmmakers. " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 8, 2013
49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " Luhrmann does find the beating heart at the center of this overstuffed enterprise. It rests firmly in the person of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jay Gatsby, " — Hollywood & Fine
Posted May 7, 2013
49% Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's (2013) " It's like a vanity project for - well, who, exactly? I could barely sit through the whole film; I can't imagine wandering the aisles of this puffed-up emporium. " — Hollywood & Fine
