0/4 90% The Nice Guys (2016) "The Nice Guys is another sub-mental movie for morons churned out by the kind of sophomoric Hollywood machine that trademarks the works of Judd Apatow & Co. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted May 19, 2016

Posted May 5, 2016
3/4 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "Its craft is evident, its sincerity is admirable, and it's the kind of movie about which you can say, "There's not a hair out of place," and mean it. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Apr 6, 2016
2/4 88% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "I admire Richard Linklater, but anyone who fixates on memories like these suffers from a case of arrested development. It all looks like old reruns of dated TV sitcoms, like Welcome Back, Kotter. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Mar 31, 2016
2/4 54% The Program (2016) "I had a hard time buying so much concentrated bile, and for me, the film loses an objectivity that might have otherwise scored points for the destructive nature of competition that can wreck a decent man's corrupted psyche. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Mar 17, 2016
3/4 67% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "I found it flawed but fascinating, and a no-fail showcase for Tina Fey's real talents as a serious actress. Best of all, this movie is never boring for a single minute. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Mar 3, 2016

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

Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/4 31% 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 30% 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 42% 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 79% 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 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 94% 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
