The Giver (2014)

"The Giver may satisfy the legions that have read the book, but is a rather predictable, mediocre film."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"Megan Fox, who plays the plucky reporter - April O' Neil, is front and center when it comes to screen time here. Her dull performance was not the banner to hang this movie's success on."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"There's lots of action, incredible 3D, all the bells and whistles audiences expect from a tentpole film. But it's the brilliant humor that will help Guardians undoubtedly be one of the biggest hits of the year."

Hercules (2014)

"Hercules is a solid popcorn film and a better than average entry this summer."

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the new pinnacle of a franchise that has endured for over four decades. Director Matt Reeves delivers a stunning film, deeply emotional and character driven."

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

"Transformium, wow! Meant to be funny, but is really a whole lot of stupid."

The Rover (2014)

"Cinema is rarely so menacing and provocative. The Rover is that desired bit of sour in a summer full of cinematic fluff."

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"The Matrix Revolutions meets Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow is Tom Cruise's most entertaining film in years."

Maleficent (2014)

"Sleeping Beauty reloaded. Maleficent is darker than expected and an incredible visual experience."

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"Strap yourself in kids, because this is why you go to summer movies. Director Bryan Singer has absolutely nailed Days of Future Past."

Godzilla (2014)

"Warner Brothers and Director Gareth Edwards deserves a golf clap. They have taken a franchise that has been laughable for decades and made it into something audiences will flock to see."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"Watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is like the buffet at Golden Corral. There's a lot of choices, you over stuff your plate, and in the end, you ate too much. But you still feel like you got your money's worth. "

The Other Woman (2014)

"The Other Woman brings up plot points that are never followed up. They simply disappear. This wouldn't be so glaring if they weren't so obvious."

Draft Day (2014)

"Draft Day is an amiable tale likely to win over non-critical audiences. It's basically a giant commercial for the National Football League."

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"The Winter Soldier represents the evolution of Captain America into a more complex character. He still kicks major ass and can throw that shield like a death Frisbee, but does he have enough courage to ask out the hot babe that lives next door?"

Sabotage (2014)

"Arnie's post-political, action film comeback is taken to new bloody heights in David Ayer's Sabotage."

Divergent (2014)

"Divergent plods along at a snail pace. Everything unveils as expected without a whiff of surprise or nuance."

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Recommended for the action, special effects, and Eva Green. There's an attempt at a plot in there somewhere. "

Stalingrad (2014)

"Stalingrad embraces technology to tell this bloody tale, but also paints a proud, nationalistic portrait of the terrible sacrifices made by civilians and soldiers."

Non-Stop (2014)

"Non-Stop can be picked apart like a buzzard on road kill. But if you want some breezy entertainment, then this film delivers in spades."

Pompeii (2014)

"Pompeii is not going to have teenage girls swooning a la Titanic, but works as an action and disaster film."

The Monuments Men (2014)

"An all star cast of veteran actors can't save a tepid, sort of Cliff's Notes version of World War II heroics."

I, Frankenstein (2014)

"I checked my brain out, and gasp, got some entertainment value from the film. The special effects, fight choreography, and production design are actually pretty good."

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)

"The best compliment I can give this movie is that I look forward to the next one. Shadow Recruit is nothing special on its own, but does lay enough groundwork for future success."

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Out of the Furnace (2013)

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

Ender's Game (2013)

"A dark tale about the militarization of youth, Director Gavin Hood delivers a solid adaptation of the science fiction classic."

The Counselor (2013)

12 Years a Slave (2013)

"This harrowing story of the worst of humanity is deceptively simple and straightforward. 12 Years a Slave is an essential film for all to see."

Prisoners (2013)

Redemption (2013)

"Drugs, trafficking, poverty, violence and love against the backdrop of a broken man. Redemption is Jason Statham's best film to date."

World War Z (2013)
