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?"

Divergent (2014)

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)

"An unbridled tale of drug fueled sex and avarice, The Wolf of Wall Street moves like a breeze for its three hour runtime."

American Hustle (2013)

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013)

Out of the Furnace (2013)

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

"While Hemsworth is buff and brooding as Thor, Tom Hiddleston steals every scene as the contemptuous Loki. "

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)

Rédemption (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)

"The crisp, frenetic pacing turns dull and nonsensical as World War Z takes a detour for the silly in its third act."

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"Olympus Has fallen packs a punch with its fair share of tired clichés. It's at once hokey and gripping, a pulp feature that certainly doesn't hold back."

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)

"A lackluster script, poor direction, and a dialed-in lead performance from Steve Carell make this ensemble comedy a big disappointment. The lone highlight and saving grace is Jim Carrey."

Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)
