Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/4 55% Paper Towns (2015) ""Paper Towns" might be the only movie to ever pay tribute to Walt Whitman's poetry, Woody Guthrie's music and the empowering theme song from the "Pokemon" cartoon series. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "[An] intriguing if only semi-satisfying Sherlockian enterprise. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/4 80% 10,000 Km (2015) "Nothing will break your heart as much as watching this man, desperate to keep this woman in his life, waltzing around the room with a laptop in his arms while staring into her faraway eyes. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 10, 2015

2/4 48% Live From New York! (2015) ""Live From New York!" is required viewing only if the network's own 3 1/2-hour marathon salute to four decades of skit hilarity earlier this year was not enough of a retrospective for you. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 52% Saint Laurent (2015) "If you come away remembering anything from this 150-minute movie as it overstays its welcome, it will be individual scenes rather than the overall effect, for that is where Bonello shines. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 8, 2015
3/4 70% Welcome to Me (2015) ""Welcome to Me" basically lives and dies by [Wiig's] performance, and, luckily, her Alice Klieg is a carefully and cunningly crafted creation, which exposes an undercurrent of pain and sorrow beneath her often placid, pixilated state. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 85% Cinderella (2015) "Branagh and company are probably making this version not just for us jaded adults but for a generation of children who perhaps never had a chance to see "Cinderella" on a big screen. For them, it will be a brand new adventure. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 47% The Judge (2014) "The material showcases the lead actors' strengths. Downey's is hyper-verbal glibness with a black sheep's injured sadness in his eyes. Duvall's is grizzled authority undercut by the infirmities of age. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
