84% When Marnie Was There (2015) "With the retirement of producer Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli has put production on hold; When Marnie Was There may well be its last feature film. If so, it's a strong note to leave on. " ‐ Village Voice

89% The Drop (2014) "A throwback to the character-driven New York crime films of the 1970s, aided in no small part by being filmed in areas of Brooklyn that don't look like they've changed much in the past 40 years. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015

No Score Yet Slugterra: Return Of The Elementals (2014) "There's little in Slugterra: Return of the Elementals to interest nonfans of the show, and the sheer laziness would be more forgivable if not for the equally lazy use of broad ethnic stereotypes. " ‐ Village Voice

Posted Jul 26, 2014
79% A Letter to Momo (2014) "The tone is generally light, the bickering goblins make a boffo comedy team, and while there's a recurring fart joke, it borders on classy. That's the power of good anime. " ‐ Village Voice

45% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) "Yves Saint Laurent is at its best when Yves indulges in all the hedonism the 60s and 70s have to offer. Just like real life, movies these days could use more hedonism. " ‐ SF Weekly

Posted Apr 29, 2014
8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) "Though he's not for all tastes, there's something admirable about Wayans's willingness to do anything for a laugh, often reminiscent of Jerry Lewis at his most frantic. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 22, 2014
95% Particle Fever (2014) "The fact that Mark Levinson's engrossing Particle Fever was edited by the great Walter Murch gives it a better pedigree than most documentaries. " ‐ SF Weekly
