20% Transcendence (2014) " Transcendence is an engaging enough "What if?" that happily reminded me of days spent curled up with a good Michael Crichton book." — Vanity Fair
Posted Apr 18, 2014
85% Under the Skin (2014) " This is a movie that at its most sensitive is about loneliness, and at its bleakest and most searching is a look at the mechanics of sexual predation. " — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 31, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " Isn't it wonderful that a director who was handed a $160 million studio budget had the temerity to aim for something this big, this sweeping?" — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 27, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " The Winter Soldier isn't overly existential, but the way it teases at those deeper questions allows Evans to give his performance a welcome bit of shading." — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 24, 2014
41% Divergent (2014) " With action scenes that can't raise a pulse, an expectedly chaste romance, and plodding, formulaic expansion of its mythology, Divergent has the drab sogginess of something reheated." — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 20, 2014
56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) " It's rare that a movie like this should be longer, but a little elongating might help this clipped, B-grade thriller resonate a little deeper." — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 14, 2014
92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " All the cutesiness in the world can't really make what was beginning to happen in 1930s Europe remotely charming, as Anderson seems to want to do." — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 14, 2014
76% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " Frankly, I'm not really sure we need to see another straight cis man dissect female sexuality for us, at least not in these terms." — Vanity Fair
Posted Mar 14, 2014
75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " It's enjoyable enough at first, being back in Ron's wild world, but Anchorman 2 quickly begins to feel like too much of yesterday's news." — Vanity Fair
Posted Dec 19, 2013
95% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " It's a well pedigreed and quirkily tailored film that will likely find its fair share of devoted fans. That said, a slight warning for those eager to run out to their local indie haus after work tonight: The movie's a total downer." — Vanity Fair
Posted Dec 12, 2013
74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " Though a heavily beefed-up version of what happens in the book, the scene still manages to conjure up some of the primal thrills that Tolkien's novel has provided for generations of young readers." — Vanity Fair
Posted Dec 12, 2013
49% Pain & Gain (2013) " I left Pain & Gain wondering how it managed to be both Bay's most off-putting movie and his most artistically successful. " — The Atlantic
