2/4 77% 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 56% 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 47% 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 54% 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 59% 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 80% 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 93% 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 90% 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 47% 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 & CĂ©lestine (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 33% 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 81% 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 34% 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
Posted Feb 26, 2014
1/4 11% Barefoot (2014) " He's a rebellious trust-funder who specializes in strip clubs, one-night stands and gambling debts. She's a possibly schizophrenic mental patient raised in near-captivity by an abusive mother. How could these two kids not fall in love?" — New York Post
Posted Feb 21, 2014
3/4 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " A generous and hilarious portrait of life as an aging legend." — New York Post
Posted Feb 20, 2014
0.5/4 57% Lucky Bastard (2014) " If nothing else (and that is pretty accurate), this found-footage horror film comprises the perfect storm of keywords to ensure moderate online success: porn, guns, boobs, simulated rape, antisocial psychopath." — New York Post
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/4 70% About Last Night (2014) " Pink improves on the 1986 Edward Zwick movie by wisely giving more screen time to less-strait-laced supporting characters." — New York Post
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2/4 45% The Pretty One (2014) " Like the film itself, Kazan is at her best when she's not trying so hard to be cute." — New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2014
2/4 68% Love & Air Sex (2014) " Love is the weak link in this clumsily titled rom-com, which plays a bit like a hipster infomercial for Austin, Texas." — New York Post
Posted Feb 5, 2014
2/4 56% At Middleton (2014) " None of this is particularly innovative, although Garcia and the elder Farmiga develop a nice spark and a gentle humor in their characters' stolen day together." — New York Post
Posted Jan 30, 2014
1.5/4 18% The Wait (2014) " The dialogue is so vague, and the plot so minimal, it all feels like a rather pointless exercise." — New York Post
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/4 84% Run & Jump (2014) " Peake does a wonderful job conveying her character's essential young-at-heartness despite a heavy load of responsibilities and grief, and Forte shines as the tentative Ted learning to step off of life's sidelines." — New York Post
Posted Jan 23, 2014
1/4 23% Gimme Shelter (2014) " A clunky movie that feels as if it's underwritten by the Catholic Church." — New York Post
Posted Jan 22, 2014
3/4 80% Band Of Sisters (2014) " It's said older women are all but invisible in society - and, thus, underestimated - and these righteous nuns are using that superpower to their full advantage." — New York Post
Posted Jan 17, 2014
3/4 80% Maidentrip (2014) " What the film lacks in plot twists it makes up for in sheer amazement, such as one scene in which Dekker, in green night-vision, sways to Kool & the Gang's "Celebration" while closing in on the equator in her 40-foot vessel, Guppy." — New York Post
Posted Jan 16, 2014
1.5/4 47% Raze (2014) " The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only." — New York Post
Posted Jan 10, 2014
1.5/4 0% Chander Pahar (2014) " Painfully awkward in execution, from the stiff dialogue to the time-padding slo-mo sequences and glaring CGI." — New York Post
Posted Jan 10, 2014
2/4 13% 47 Ronin (2013) " [Rinsch] careens from one set piece to another with a blend of passable 3-D and dialogue so wooden, it seems dubbed." — New York Post
Posted Dec 24, 2013
2/4 97% The Selfish Giant (2013) " It is admirably unsparing and gloomily atmospheric. And I looked at my watch a bunch of times." — New York Post
Posted Dec 20, 2013
1/4 57% Some Velvet Morning (2013) " An hour and a half of emotional manipulation seasoned with a dash of straight-up violence." — New York Post
Posted Dec 12, 2013
2/4 20% The Last Days On Mars (2013) " Fails to live up to the awesomeness of its own campy premise." — New York Post
Posted Dec 6, 2013
2/4 36% Swerve (2013) " It's enjoyable enough, but low on novelty, beyond the stark beauty of the sun-bleached Outback landscape." — New York Post
Posted Dec 6, 2013
3/4 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " Yes, it's the middle chapter and feels like it, but it's never dull." — New York Post
Posted Nov 19, 2013
2/4 61% Dear Mr. Watterson (2013) " It was one of the greats of the now-nearly-defunct Sunday funnies, no doubt. Unfortunately, there's not much cinematic magic in watching the director reading the strip, or hearing various other enthusiasts talk about how much they loved it." — New York Post
Posted Nov 15, 2013
3/4 67% Sunlight Jr. (2013) " Collyer paints a sobering and important picture of the way many of us live now." — New York Post
Posted Nov 14, 2013
2/4 73% The Motel Life (2013) " Hirsch and Dorff give it their all - as does the always-welcome Kris Kristofferson, as a boss and father figure to Frank - but they can't make up for the screenplay's shortcomings." — New York Post
Posted Nov 8, 2013
2.5/4 71% Go For Sisters (2013) " It's a deftly scripted parade of low-key character studies; just don't expect too much from the plot, which feels like an afterthought." — New York Post
Posted Nov 8, 2013
2.5/4 83% The Armstrong Lie (2013) " Overall, Gibney does a fine job documenting the timeless nature of Armstrong's fall from grace." — New York Post
Posted Nov 7, 2013
4/4 80% The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013) " This Belgian drama is the real deal, an alternately wrenching and ecstatic viewing experience, adapted from a play by lead actor Johan Heldenbergh." — New York Post
Posted Nov 1, 2013
1.5/4 18% Free Birds (2013) " A forgettable - and occasionally borderline offensive - animated tale of turkeys trying to take back Thanksgiving." — New York Post
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/4 60% Ender's Game (2013) " A big, dark film that should satisfy the many fans of the Orson Scott Card novel and engage newcomers, too." — New York Post
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/4 85% Spinning Plates (2013) " Ultimately, the portrayal of community fostered by delicious food makes a sound case for patronizing independent eateries." — New York Post
Posted Oct 28, 2013
2/4 53% Haunter (2013) " The plot spirals into increasing fuzziness ..." — New York Post
Posted Oct 18, 2013
1/4 6% I'm In Love With A Church Girl (2013) " This overlong drama plays like a threefold infomercial: for Christianity, the cheesy resort chain Sandals and Jeff "Ja Rule" Atkins, the rapper-turned-actor playing drug kingpin Miles Montego." — New York Post
Posted Oct 18, 2013
3/4 90% The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete (2013) " A gritty, sometimes downright heartwrenching story of two young boys left to fend for themselves for weeks during a boiling-hot summer in a Brooklyn housing project." — New York Post
Posted Oct 11, 2013
2/4 22% Romeo and Juliet (2013) " Seventh-grade English teachers, rejoice. You have a new movie to show the class that day you come in hung over and can't deal." — New York Post
Posted Oct 10, 2013
2.5/4 61% Linsanity (2013) " Leong's film isn't particularly stylish, but it makes the most of the climactic Knicks footage, as well as showcasing a sweetly goofy side of the 25-year-old ..." — New York Post
