8% Absolutely Anything "Decades in the making, Monty Python vet Terry Jones' lame sci-fi satire squanders the contributions of top comic talents - including the late Robin Williams. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 12, 2015
67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "An unusually restrained Guy Ritchie serves up solid entertainment with a classy touch, but bland leads and no-sizzle chemistry make this slick '60s TV adaptation forgettable. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 11, 2015
38% One & Two (2015) "There are simply too many loose ends to distract us, and too much empty air in which audiences can't help but poke holes. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 10, 2015
53% A LEGO Brickumentary (2015) "The film exhibits an oddly promotional tone that might rub audiences wrong if it were hyping any another product. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 31, 2015
86% Microbe and Gasoline "Two misfits and a house on wheels make for gentle yet sincere amusement in Michel Gondry's low-key French laffer. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 20, 2015
50% A Tale of Love and Darkness "Natalie Portman wrote, directed and starred in this well-meaning but dreary adaptation of Amos Oz's autobiography. " ‐ Variety

Posted Jul 20, 2015
18% Jellyfish Eyes (2015) "[The] story [is] barely original or interesting enough to sustain a half hour of kids' TV. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 15, 2015
52% Boulevard (2015) "[Boulevard] is well written, acted and directed, and yet somehow never manages to surprise. That approach has its advantages, however. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 6, 2015
No Score Yet Heil "Not necessarily 'too soon,' but undeniably 'too much,' this German sendup of neo-Nazism feels like an assault on good taste. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 1, 2015
85% Glass Chin (2015) "Between [Buschel's] script and Stoll's performance, "Glass Chin" finds fresh humanity in a seemingly exhausted genre. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 23, 2015
55% Minions (2015) "There must have been a million Minion ideas that Lynch and everyone involved simply weren't able to incorporate into the film. Here's hoping the best of them find their way into "Despicable Me 3," due out summer 2017. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 18, 2015
49% Manglehorn (2015) "A fragile, smaller-than-life portrait. " ‐ Variety

Posted Jun 9, 2015
33% Ardor (2015) "The spirit of Sergio Leone hovers above Argentine director Pablo Fendrik's Ardor, a spooky south-of-the-equator oater -- or "machete Western," if you will -- that trades open desert horizons for dense jungle backdrops. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 8, 2015
84% Alleluia (2015) "Laurent Lucas astonishingly allows the Belgian suspense-meister to obliterate whatever leading-man prospects he had left, pairing up with Spanish actress Lola Duenas to form the world's creepiest couple. " ‐ Variety

Posted May 25, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "Pixar's 15th feature proves to be the greatest idea the toon studio has ever had ... promises to forever change the way people think about the way people think, delivering creative fireworks grounded by a wonderfully relatable family story. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 18, 2015
79% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "Taken together, the parables serve primarily to entertain - an effect that has as much to do with Garrone's command of the cinematic language as it does the content itself. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 14, 2015
52% In the Name of My Daughter (2015) "A mobster movie without whackings, a thriller without suspense and a courtroom drama without resolution, this turgid retelling of an unsolved missing-persons case functions mostly as a portrait of a young woman who loved too passionately. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 11, 2015
26% Every Secret Thing (2015) "Despite its name cast, short of a significant re-edit, not much can save what feels like a Lifetime version of The Lovely Bones. " ‐ Variety

Posted May 6, 2015
No Score Yet Beaver Trilogy Part IV "Besser's obsessive feature-length follow-up documentary ultimately feels like a DVD featurette that spiraled ridiculously out of control. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 5, 2015
44% Maya The Bee Movie (2015) "This sweet, play-it-safe adaptation of TV's honeybee heroine is as innocuous and uninspired as preschool animation gets. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 1, 2015
63% Reality (2015) "[A] mind-numbingly unfunny attempt to apply slippery dream logic to filmmaking. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 27, 2015
68% Marie's Story (2015) "Slight but satisfying. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 27, 2015
81% Far from Men (2015) "Writer-director David Oelhoffen's idea of approaching this potent two-hander as an Algeria-set horse opera proves as inspired as it is unexpected. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 27, 2015
25% Child 44 (2015) ""Child 44" plays like a curious relic of an earlier Cold War mindset, when Western audiences took comfort that they were living on the right side of the Iron Curtain, and relied on movies to remind them as much. " ‐ Variety

Posted Apr 13, 2015

Posted Apr 8, 2015

Posted Apr 7, 2015
25% Dark Places (2015) "No matter how you feel about "Gone Girl," there's no denying that Gillian Flynn's second bigscreen adaptation is a relative disappointment. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 7, 2015
68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "A work of essential spiritual enlightenment, elegantly interpreted by nine of the world's leading independent animators, all tied up and wrapped in a family-friendly bow by "The Lion King" director Roger Allers. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 22, 2015
100% Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made "Often poignant, occasionally pathetic, but never short of entertaining, "Raiders!" captures the obsessive hold movies have on young people's imaginations ... " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 19, 2015
29% Insurgent (2015) "Perhaps instead of splitting the third book into two movies, they should have considered combining the first two into one. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 11, 2015
75% 3 Hearts (2015) "Jacquot makes it much more compelling to watch his characters fall in love than it is to see them writhe and twist amid its complications. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 10, 2015
47% Home (2015) "From a creative standpoint, this is the studio's least exciting feature yet - hardly its worst, execution-wise, but entirely lacking in the risk-taking spirit that has spawned such successful franchises as "Shrek," "Kung Fu Panda" and "Dragon." " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 8, 2015
57% My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (2015) "Suggests the sacrifices required of those who live in an artist's orbit, but it fails to offer what groupies surely want, which is insight into Refn's creative process. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 26, 2015
70% The Salvation (2015) " Levring is certainly the first of his countrymen to render an homage to the genre with quite this level of skill, while his outsider status allows him to damn every last American in the godforsaken land of his own invention. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 25, 2015
25% Tracers (2015) "The plot may be as creaky as an old-timer slinking across rooftops in a black turtleneck and domino mask, but the acrobatic stunts more than compensate, many of them performed by Lautner himself. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 25, 2015
57% Focus (2015) "While not quite the "art" it's billed to be, if the perfect con is about diverting one's focus, then this one keeps you distracted till the end. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 25, 2015
63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "For a film conceived without any chance of a sequel in mind, "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" actually lends itself surprisingly well to being extended ... " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 17, 2015
84% Cinderella (2015) "Though this lavish, live-action 'Cinderella' could never replace Disney's animated classic, it's no ugly stepsister, either. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 13, 2015
54% Woman in Gold (2015) "This heavy-handed retelling of the fight to reclaim a Gustav Klimt painting stolen by Nazis is no masterpiece. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 9, 2015
70% 5 to 7 (2015) "Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin's refreshingly articulate "5 to 7" delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 6, 2015
6% Queen of the Desert "In the end, it's not clear what's driving Bell, nor what's holding her back. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 6, 2015

Posted Feb 3, 2015
26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "A disappointing step backwards for the Wachowskis, who lose themselves in an over-designed, underdeveloped 'Star Wars'-style land grab in space. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 3, 2015
No Score Yet Pervert Park "Most will go in with minds set about rapists and child molesters, only to find their assumptions challenged by this tough-to-watch, even-trickier-to-market pic's daring approach and the courageous candor of its subjects. " ‐ Variety
