No Score Yet The Pack (2016) "It's an effective thriller that sets out to scare the living daylights out of even the most skeptical viewer and delivers in spades. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2/4 70% Tumbledown (2016) "The two stars have charisma, but not necessarily together. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/4 59% The Finest Hours (2016) "I expected nothing special and wound up being thoroughly exhilarated. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 4, 2016
0/4 17% The 5th Wave (2016) ""What's the point of any of this?" asks Cassie. I kept hoping, but no such luck. It's a question that is never answered. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 4, 2016
1/4 5% Martyrs (2016) "Another slash-and-dice programmer with no redeeming factors whatsoever. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 21, 2016
0/4 30% Mojave (2016) "Posing as a bogus thriller without one line of believable dialogue or one single thrill, Mojave is 93 minutes of gibberish with guns and phony literary pretentiousness about two thugs in a duel of weapons and words that goes nowhere fast. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 21, 2016
1/4 30% The Benefactor (2016) "As a memorable work of cinema, it misses every important mark by a mile. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/4 32% Anesthesia (2016) "A pile of incomprehensible existential gibberish by the vastly untalented actor-writer-director Tim Blake Nelson about the meaning of life in an age of technology, told in the tiresome style of multiple characters who intersect at odd angles ... " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 21, 2016
1/4 31% Don Verdean (2015) "It's a funny, offbeat idea for a farce up to a point, but the joke wears thin too fast to sustain interest and the Hesses lack the originality and cleverness to juggle their balloons in the air in any fresh way. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Dec 10, 2015
2/4 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "It's a harrowing tale that still packs an entertaining wallop. But any attempt at character development seems to have ended on an editing-room table. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/4 73% A Royal Night Out (2015) "A Royal Night Out is a film of enormous charm, texture and good will, thanks largely to the three leads. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Dec 10, 2015
2/4 80% Macbeth (2015) "The antique weapons, ancient mud-splattered costumes and faces so caked with dirt that the expressions are often obliterated make this a visceral Macbeth, if far from flawless in other areas. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3.5/4 93% The Lady In The Van (2015) "The lady in the van grows on you, like a vine. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/4 70% The Danish Girl (2015) "Regardless of how you feel about the subject matter, The Danish Girl is an overwhelming act of heroism for Eddie Redmayne. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 25, 2015
1/4 31% By The Sea (2015) "So boring it defies description. By the Sea is not only a dog; it's a dog that's got fleas. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 19, 2015
2/4 62% Legend (2015) "The script may be flawed and the narrative storytelling mechanical, but ... whenever either one Tom Hardy (or both) is onscreen, Legend is engrossing stuff indeed. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 19, 2015
4/4 93% Carol (2015) "Mr. Haynes is a director of enormous imagination and insight, so for a fragile narrative as exquisite and tender as Chantilly lace, Mr. Haynes fits the emotions to the period like the movements in a symphony. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3/4 72% Trumbo (2015) "Bryan Cranston brings the complex personality of Trumbo to life with substance and humor. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 11, 2015
2.5/4 38% Shelter (2015) "Some people will find it too emotionally wrenching to watch, but there are moments of raw, understated sensitivity, encapsulating the ache of regret at the heart of Shelter. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 11, 2015
4/4 100% Jag är Ingrid (Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words) (2015) "This is what you got when you met her, and this is what you get in the movie. The camera loved her and she loved cameras. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Nov 5, 2015
2/4 64% Spectre (2015) "We've seen it all before. Despite a plot trajectory that changes so often they seem to be making it up as they go along, everyone on and off the screen seems to be doing it by the numbers. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 5, 2015
4/4 98% Brooklyn (2015) "Brooklyn is an elegant testament to the dream of first experience, relatable to everyone, regardless of where you're from-elevated to no small degree by the blue emerald eyes and creamy complexion of its star ... " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Nov 4, 2015
2/4 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "The movie wafts and drones and shifts gears so many times that it is never as funny, pointed, jaundiced or clever as it could have been, and much less politically significant than it should be. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Oct 28, 2015
3/4 29% Burnt (2015) "A mildly entertaining but well acted, sumptuously photographed and smartly written comedy with dark undertones about culinary addiction that can only be called "delicious." " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Oct 28, 2015
2.5/4 88% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "It's an uneasy mixture of bizarre character development, arty dialogue laced with black humor and gruesome horror flick. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/4 73% Suffragette (2015) "As a period piece, Suffragette captures and preserves the pulse and passion of a past era, yet strengthens the vibrant urgency of a cause that continues to inform the future. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Oct 21, 2015

Posted Oct 8, 2015
2/4 32% Knock Knock (2015) "Watching two psychotic sex kittens slap Keanu Reeves around while he's stripped down to his Calvins does, I admit, offer a certain amount of guilty pleasure. Otherwise, there's nobody home in Knock Knock. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Oct 8, 2015

Posted Sep 30, 2015
4/4 75% Labyrinth Of Lies (2015) "It deals with seminal issues in cinematic terms that keep the audience spellbound without sensationalism. The actors are perfect, especially the dynamic Mr. Fehling. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 30, 2015
2/4 4% Shanghai (2015) "How many times does John Cusack have to prove he is no leading man? In Shanghai he comes off as Sam Spade with chopsticks. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 30, 2015
3/4 80% Uncle John (2015) "The kind of polished, understated throb in the temple that gives independent, low-budget filmmaking a good reputation. Uncle John is meticulously observed and startlingly good. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 24, 2015
3/4 81% The New Girlfriend (2015) "The New Girlfriend is a funny, delicate, subtly flavored dish deliciously prepared by François Ozon - idiosyncratic and unforgettable. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 24, 2015
3/4 90% Mississippi Grind (2015) "The ambience of pool halls, honkytonks, backroom crap games and smelly racetracks where these guys live out their aimless days and nights is captured perfectly, lending a distinct air of hopelessness to their already rudderless lives. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 24, 2015
1.5/4 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) "Everything in this hoax is a cliché inspired by a dozen other B-movies about the same subject, from No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher to Friends with Benefits with Justin Timberlake. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/4 74% Time Out Of Mind (2015) "Time Out of Mind is not sentimental or overly plotted. It's just a sober, emotionally direct film of subtle observance on the road to Hell. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
4/4 93% Coming Home (2015) "It's a cause for rejoicing. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
2.5/4 100% Two Step (2015) "There's a lot to admire in the slow-burning build of Texas ambiance and dialogue. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 29, 2015
2/4 14% Big Significant Things (2015) "Admirable and respectable, it engages you while you're watching it, then leaves you empty and wanting more. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 29, 2015
3/4 77% Tom at the Farm (2015) "Following an arc of dread that builds to a breathy climax, Mr. Dolan continues his usual theme of how people test their love and hatred for themselves and each other while he keeps your heart racing. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Posted Jul 22, 2015
3.5/4 60% Southpaw (2015) "Moving effortlessly between big Hollywood movies and modest New York stage vehicles, [Gyllenhaal has] turned into quite an actor. Few stars make such concentrated efforts to improve their craft while rising through the ranks of stardom. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 21, 2015
2/4 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "I found the whole thing pokey and plodding, but there's no denying the fact that even when sitting through Mr. Holmes seems numbing, Mr. McKellen is a force so powerful he's his own reward. " ‐ New York Observer
