3.5/4 82% Furious 7 (2015) " This is an immensely entertaining movie, and if the filmmakers are wise, they'll quit on this high note. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 3, 2015
3/4 92% The Hand That Feeds (2015) " It has a beautiful, low-key approach that earns its cheers and tears without resorting to the manipulative or dramatic tricks of a typical feature film. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 3, 2015
0.5/4 21% Marfa Girl (2015) " Clark clearly has a visual eye, and some of the compositions in his films are breathtaking, but unless his predilections float your boat, his movies are endurance tests. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 75% That Guy Dick Miller (2015) " Miller is such a character that Drenner takes the advice offered him by many of the filmmakers he interviews: He just turns on the camera and lets Miller work his magic. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/4 97% '71 (2015) " O'Connell continues to bring equal measures of toughness and vulnerability to his characters. Despite his good looks, there's an everyman's quality to him, which he uses to full effect in "'71." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 27, 2015
1/4 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) " Hot Tub Time Machine 2 commits the two biggest sins of the dudebro comedy genre legitimized by the success of The Hangover series. The first is that this sequel exists at all. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine

2.5/4 28% Wild Card (2015) " This film's tagline should be "Come for the stabbing, stay for the gabbing!" " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 30, 2015
2/4 21% The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015) " "The Woman in Black 2" might have served as an effective tribute to movies like "Curse of the Cat People." That is, if it hadn't completely squandered all this goodwill in its last third. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 46% The Gambler (2014) " "The Gambler" should have been called "Three Supporting Characters in Search of a Lead." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Dec 25, 2014
4/4 99% Selma (2015) " Its timeliness is a spine-chilling reminder that those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. Its story provides a blueprint not only of the past, but of the way forward. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Dec 24, 2014
1/4 36% After The Fall (2014) " A substandard "crime drama" that reeks of the Idiot Plot Syndrome. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Dec 12, 2014

Posted Oct 24, 2014
1.5/4 31% Autómata (2014) " Personally, if I were you, I'd bypass it for a double feature of "Cherry 2000" and "Runaway." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 10, 2014
3.5/4 100% Nas: Time Is Illmatic (2014) " The camera roams the way the human eye would, yet it knows the power of stillness, of letting the image linger and rest. These documentarians masterfully construct their vision to elevate and serve their subject. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 1, 2014
3/4 82% The Two Faces of January (2014) " This is one of Mortensen's best performances, and "The Two Faces of January" is one gorgeously rendered old-school feature. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 26, 2014

3/4 100% A Life in Dirty Movies (2014) " "A Life In Dirty Movies" hooks you with its title, then surprises by supplementing its salacious material with a charming look at the couple who made those dirty movies. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 19, 2014

Posted Sep 12, 2014
3/4 91% To Be Takei (2014) " Conventional documentary or not, I got something of positive value and insight out of "To Be Takei." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 22, 2014
3/4 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) " As dopey and bloodless as the action sequences are, they keep the film moving at a brisker pace than its 2-hour-plus running time indicates. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 15, 2014
A 99% Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) " Of the many films considered great satire, only Dr. Strangelove holds up as a masterpiece with none of its bite removed. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Aug 7, 2014
35% Young Einstein (1988) " Serious's most distinguishing feature is his unruly hair, which serves as both a reminder of Einstein's own unkempt mane and the endless series of '80s-era stand-up comedians memorable only for their wacky hairdos. " ‐ House Next Door

3/4 89% Siddharth (2014) " A sense of hopelessness invades every frame of "Siddharth," yet its story is not emotionally manipulative. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 28, 2014
2/4 53% Jersey Boys (2014) " The elephant in the room is Eastwood himself. He is the wrong director for this material, and this opinion comes from someone who loved "Million Dollar Baby," "Space Cowboys" and even those orangutan movies. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 20, 2014
1/4 27% Burning Blue (2014) " This shockingly amateurish film evokes memories of "Making Love," the Arthur Hiller film about a married man coming to terms with his homosexuality. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
85% Dead Poets Society (1989) " Dead Poets Society purports to be about the bravery of following one's own path. This is a bright, shining lie, one the film is ballsy enough to tell to your face. " ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jun 4, 2014

Posted May 23, 2014
B 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Million Dollar Arm's biggest strength is its sneaky way of making you care about its characters. Sure, it's clichéd, but it's perfectly fine Sunday afternoon movie fare. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted May 16, 2014
73% Neighbors (2014) " The screenplay is a poorly stitched-together patchwork of ideas, which shouldn't be a surprise, as See No Evil, Hear No Evil is credited to five writers. " ‐ House Next Door

Posted May 2, 2014
0.5/4 8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) " Why did I need to see scene after unfunny scene of Wayans nakedly humping a creepy children's doll (there must be 10 minutes of this footage)? " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/4 46% Heaven Is for Real (2014) " Without fail, every time I found myself liking this movie, it would break the spell with its ulterior motives. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 16, 2014
3.5/4 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a very good movie, the rare film in this genre that serves as both entry point and continuation. For a change, you can walk in cold and you won't be too lost. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/4 76% Anita (2014) " As a documented record of Hill's story and her achievements, "Anita" is a serviceable, at times riveting documentary. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/4 41% In Secret (2014) " Isaac is better in his early scenes as a seducer, Olsen is better in her bitter, angry later scenes, but they synch up by the film's over-the-top last moments. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 21, 2014
A- 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " Stritch speaks honestly about her mortality. At 87, she harbors no fantasies about extended amounts of time. Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me makes you wish she would live forever. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine

0.5/4 8% Girl On A Bicycle (2014) " It may be the worst romantic comedy I have ever seen, and this is not hyperbole. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/4 68% About Last Night (2014) " "About Last Night" surrenders its predecessor's ellipsis in its title, but thankfully retains the salty mouth and sexual shenanigans that mark it as an adaptation of David Mamet's "Sexual Perversity In Chicago". " ‐ RogerEbert.com
