3/4 63% Life Of Crime (2014) " Director Daniel Schechter ("Supporting Characters") moves the plot along in a loose, unhurried manner, letting the cast enjoy Leonard's delicious dialogue." — New York Post
Posted Aug 27, 2014
2/4 39% If I Stay (2014) " Compared to another recent teen weepie, "The Fault in Our Stars," this one comes up wanting." — New York Post
Posted Aug 21, 2014
1/4 8% Are You Here (2014) " There's little to explain the existence of this confoundingly unfunny film." — New York Post
Posted Aug 20, 2014
3/4 88% Abuse of Weakness (2014) " The plot, though never less than engaging, occasionally tests believability - until you remember it's drawn from Breillat's life." — New York Post
Posted Aug 14, 2014
3/4 91% Frank (2014) " If Michael Fassbender wears a giant papier-mâché head for most of a film, is he still mesmerizing? Happily, yes ..." — New York Post
Posted Aug 14, 2014
2.5/4 32% The Giver (2014) " The central premise - that wildness of spirit isn't something to be tamed, no matter how messy it makes our lives - is an enduring one, and well served by Jeff Bridges in the title role." — New York Post
Posted Aug 13, 2014
1.5/4 9% After (2014) " [There's] a fairly far-fetched twist that feels out of place in this realism-based drama." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
2.5/4 46% About Alex (2014) " Zwick has a good ear for dialogue, and scenes between pairs of characters are smart and intimate - a nice match for talents like Plaza and Greenfield, who are particularly fun to watch play off each other." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
2/4 59% Deepsea Challenge 3D (2014) " On the whole, the film would probably be more at home on cable and at a reduced running time." — New York Post
Posted Aug 6, 2014
2/4 47% War Story (2014) " Lee may not want to let anyone in, but it's hard to engage fully with a film that doesn't seem to want to, either." — New York Post
Posted Jul 30, 2014
1/4 —— My Man Is a Loser (2014) " 'That's what you got for me? Men are stupid, women are crazy?" says a put-upon wife, echoing my thoughts, in this witless comedy." — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/4 57% EDC 2013: Under the Electric Sky (2014) " EDC has made headlines with fatal overdoses, so you'd think directors Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz would examine the role Molly and related drugs play here. But the topic is mentioned only fleetingly." — New York Post
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/4 44% Aftermath (2014) " Director Peter Engert, to his credit, delivers a believably awful scenario; nine people trapped underground for a month are mostly going to pace, cry and argue. Unfortunately, this makes for wearying watching." — New York Post
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2/4 44% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) " It's generic stuff, unless you're a kid who's really into playing with toy planes and trains and cars." — New York Post
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2.5/4 78% Land Ho! (2014) " The gorgeous scene stealer in this gentle-spirited road movie is the country of Iceland, depicted in breathtaking wide-angle shots by cinematographer Andrew Reed." — New York Post
Posted Jul 16, 2014
2/4 24% Tammy (2014) " This pastiche of sitcomy episodes never gels into a plot." — New York Post
Posted Jul 2, 2014
3/4 96% Wrinkles (2014) " The film doesn't wallow in grief; it's a thoughtful and nuanced portrait of a stage of life we often choose not to see." — New York Post
Posted Jun 30, 2014
2/4 69% They Came Together (2014) " Much of [the movie] will make you smile gently because it's familiar and taken to an extreme. Actual laughs may be harder to come by ..." — New York Post
Posted Jun 25, 2014
0.5/4 25% Think Like a Man Too (2014) " If "Think Like a Man Too" was a man, he would be the world's worst date: humorless, shrill, speaking primarily in clichés ("what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!") and absolutely terrified of women." — New York Post
Posted Jun 18, 2014
3/4 84% Coherence (2014) " Writer/director James Ward Byrkit, in his feature debut, achieves effective chills with only eight actors and a living room ..." — New York Post
Posted Jun 18, 2014
1.5/4 45% All Cheerleaders Die (2014) " This would-be cult movie looks the part, but has little going on inside." — New York Post
Posted Jun 12, 2014
2/4 33% Lullaby (2014) " Writer/director Andrew Levitas needlessly pads this captivating theme with over-used tropes ..." — New York Post
Posted Jun 11, 2014
2/4 76% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) " As much fun as it is, this all-star tribute is awfully one-note, never questioning Gordon's seemingly casual habit of befriending only the ultra-famous." — New York Post
Posted Jun 5, 2014
2/4 52% Trust Me (2014) " This small film's momentum ... like the childhood career of its protagonist - gradually sputters." — New York Post
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2/4 48% Maleficent (2014) " It's often arresting to look at, but never has a strong sense of where it wants to go." — New York Post
Posted May 29, 2014
1/4 10% The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014) " [Williams] has played against type before, but his presence feels like epic miscasting in this underwritten dramedy ..." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2014
1/4 8% Don Peyote (2014) " This Don Peyote doesn't even have a windmill to tilt at." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2014
2/4 41% A Night In Old Mexico (2014) " Unfortunately, there's a clichéd bag-of-money plot surrounding Red's hell-with-old-age night out, which would have made a more unique movie on its own." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2014
3/4 82% Fed Up (2014) " Toggling between profiles of kids struggling with their weight and a wider look at the evolution of processed foods, "Fed Up" presents a pretty watertight case that there's something deeply wrong with the way we eat." — New York Post
Posted May 9, 2014
3/4 72% Palo Alto (2014) " A thoughtful, dreamlike (at times, nightmarish) tour through the day-to-day lives of several suburban California teens." — New York Post
Posted May 7, 2014
2/4 52% Decoding Annie Parker (2014) " [A] well-intentioned, if ultimately underwhelming, ode to the ongoing fight for a cure." — New York Post
Posted May 1, 2014
3/4 89% For A Woman (2014) " The striking Thierry brings her character to nuanced life on screen, torn between loyalty to the man who saved her and passion for his Nazi-hunting brother." — New York Post
Posted May 1, 2014
1/4 24% The Other Woman (2014) " Mann and Diaz give it their all, and you can see how they might be a good comic team with better material, Mann a goofy foil to Diaz's savvy urbanite." — New York Post
Posted Apr 23, 2014
3/4 96% Blue Ruin (2014) " Sparse of dialogue, terrifically ominous and full of low-key, high-quality performances, "Blue Ruin" is a vigilante tale even haters like me can get behind." — New York Post
Posted Apr 23, 2014
2/4 63% Small Time (2014) " "Small Time" has its heart in the right place, but its screenplay's in serious need of a tuneup." — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
1/4 43% Make Your Move (2014) " An entirely generic drama in which two characters actually say to one another, "What if this doesn't work?" "It has to."" — New York Post
Posted Apr 17, 2014
2/4 50% Hateship Loveship (2014) " I hope this is Wiig's last sad-sack turn; it seems a waste to ignore those comic chops in the pursuit of this sort of Serious Acting." — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
2/4 51% Cuban Fury (2014) " A rather unremarkable, if endearing, entry in the quirky rom-com genre." — New York Post
Posted Apr 10, 2014
0/4 0% 10 Rules For Sleeping Around (2014) " This retrograde sex comedy is embarrassing for just about everyone involved ..." — New York Post
Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/4 60% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) " Sex addiction recovery groups may have just found their new recruitment video. "Nymphomaniac: Volume II" makes the act look about as enjoyable as getting your taxes done." — New York Post
Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/4 82% Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014) " The many silences in "Hide Your Smiling Faces" don't speak quite loudly enough, and the film ultimately gets bogged down by its own ponderousness." — New York Post
Posted Mar 26, 2014
3.5/4 91% Mistaken for Strangers (2014) " Not since "American Movie" has there been such an entertainingly clumsy, warts-and-all documentary about making a movie, this time courtesy of Cincinnati filmmaker Tom Berninger." — New York Post
Posted Mar 26, 2014
3/4 88% It Felt Like Love (2014) " Gorgeously shot in Brooklyn's beachfront neighborhoods and devoid of easy sentimentality, "It Felt Like Love" features realistic performances all around, understandable given the cast of mostly first-time actors." — New York Post
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/4 53% Blood Ties (2014) " It all feels so familiar, from the beleaguered female characters, to the scene-setting anthems ("New York Groove" is well-used, admittedly), to the predictable eruptions of violence." — New York Post
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/4 97% Ernest & Célestine (2014) " There's a truly original beauty in "Ernest & Celestine," from its delicate, pastel-hued animation to the look and sound of its inhabitants ..." — New York Post
Posted Mar 13, 2014
1.5/4 21% Better Living Through Chemistry (2014) " Every character is a pretty well-worn archetype, including Michelle Monaghan's uptight, exercise-obsessed wife." — New York Post
Posted Mar 13, 2014
1/4 36% Haunt (2014) " There is virtually nothing in Mac Carter's horror flick that deviates from the standard haunted house plot (or, in this case, plod)." — New York Post
Posted Mar 5, 2014
2/4 82% Grand Piano (2014) " The only way I can make sense of this movie is to imagine it was made on a dare: Someone bet Spanish director/composer Eugenio Mira he couldn't do "Speed," but with a piano instead of a bus - and the guy likes to prove people wrong." — New York Post
Posted Mar 5, 2014
1/4 33% Odd Thomas (2014) " What worked so well for Anton Yelchin as the protagonist of "Fright Night" - scrappy, clever young guy fights supernatural evil - falls flat in this adaptation of a Dean Koontz novel from director Stephen Sommers." — New York Post
Posted Feb 27, 2014
1/4 10% The Bag Man (2014) " [A] blathery, misogynist indie ..." — New York Post
