This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

"Good for Shawn Levy for going outside of his comfort zone, but as much as he may dislike being typecast as a director, he should keep that 'mindless family movie' door open as long as he possibly can."

The Zero Theorem (2014)

"The sort of Gilliam ideas that at one time were perceived as fanciful or witty are now the horror outside your front door or inside your computer monitor."

The Drop (2014)

"A well-paced and expertly acted film that serves as a fitting end to one actor's career and the exciting emergence of another."

God Help the Girl (2014)

"If God Help the Girl were any more precious, Gollum would steal it."

Life After Beth (2014)

"A dead-on-arrival comedy that's just as much in need of some brains as its title character."

The November Man (2014)

"Pierce Brosnan is a better spy here than he ever was in the Bond movies."

Starred Up (2014)

"From the cell block politics, to the crooked authorities supposedly in charge of keeping the peace, Starred Up doesn't pull any punches in its tough and gritty depiction of prison life."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles delivers a slightly different take on the series... and though it gets some things wrong along the way, it gets just as much right."

Get On Up (2014)

"The story line is too slight... but thanks to a showstopping performance by Chadwick Boseman, Get on Up is quite entertaining."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"Gunn absolutely nails the offbeat tone of the source material, creating a sort of punk rock Star Wars that delivers big on adventure and comedy with a thoroughly entertaining cast of characters."

Magic in the Moonlight (2014)

"The whole thing feels less like a genuine Woody Allen comedy than a pale imitation."

Lucy (2014)

"How ironic that in a movie about striving for greater intelligence, the takeaway turns out to be that ignorance truly is bliss."

Wish I Was Here (2014)

"Wish I Was Here is a confident, funny and heartfelt tragicomedy that, although not without its blemishes, proves Braff is more than just a one-hit wonder."

Sex Tape (2014)

"If there is anything good that comes from Sex Tape, it is the age-old lesson that you shouldn't make one, ever. Ever. No, really, ever."

Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014)

"The rule for animated films should be that a good joke for adults is one that is both funny and can be explained to children. Here, we have a female airplane talking about her rack. John Lasseter, I expect more from you than that."

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"Unlike the home invasion plot of the first film, Anarchy has shed itself almost entirely of all horror elements, aiming for something more along the lines of a retro John Carpenter movie, only not as good."

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"What it lacks in originality, the movie makes up for in sheer visual spectacle."

Earth to Echo (2014)

"It's a movie that acknowledges cynicism, but shows a more hopeful path. It's hard to get too down on a movie like that, even a mediocre one."

Tammy (2014)

Begin Again (2014)

"Begin Again doesn't quite have the same magic of Once, but it's a sweet and cuddly crowd-pleaser highlighted by a pair of great performances and some catchy tunes."

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

"It's entertaining and gorgeous, but disjointed, veering between wildly emotional scenes on both ends of the spectrum without much thought for how they should flow together."

22 Jump Street (2014)

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"Edge of Tomorrow isn't without its faults... but those are minor annoyances for a film that proves to be such a satisfying breath of fresh air in a summer packed with sequels."

Maleficent (2014)

"There is certainly another side of the Sleeping Beauty story to be told, but it looks as though the idea of Disney villains as the next franchise opportunity overtook all efforts to make a solid, stand-alone film."

A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)

"A Million Ways to Die in the West is guaranteed to divide audiences, but it's a really solid comedy with more than enough laughs to offset its minor shortcomings."

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"There's quite a bit to like about Days of Future Past, but it feels more like a step backward than the creative leap forward that Matthew Vaughn's prequel pointed towards."

Blended (2014)

"While Blended isn't as aggressively terrible as [Adam Sandler]'s recent crop of films, it's not very funny either."

Million Dollar Arm (2014)

"It speaks to the importance of loving the game that you're playing, and that is never a bad thing, even when it takes an extra 20 minutes to say it."

Neighbors (2014)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Dom Hemingway (2014)

"Jude Law is one of the most underrated actors in the business, and though it's been awhile since he's had a part to really sink his teeth into, he may have found the role of a lifetime with Dom Hemingway."

The Raid 2 (2014)

"The Raid 2 may not provide quite the same adrenaline rush of its faster-paced, more contained predecessor, but it's a richer and more sophisticated action-thriller that ranks among the best crime movies ever made."

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"Arguably the studio's best sequel to date - a gripping and socially relevant continuation to its hero's cinematic evolution."

Sabotage (2014)

"There's nothing about Sabotage that's even remotely surprising, except perhaps for the fact that a film with such a cool premise and awesome cast could be this boring."

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

Need For Speed (2014)

"Need for Speed is in desperate need of a lot of things - a better script, stronger direction, better pacing - but one thing you wouldn't think it'd be lacking is excitement."

Bad Words (2014)

"Although the story is a little undercooked and the big "twist" is entirely predictable, Bad Words delivers enough hilarious, foul-mouthed mischief to deserve its title."

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Non-Stop (2014)

RoboCop (2014)

The LEGO Movie (2014)

"It's a LEGO movie for people who despise the very idea of a LEGO movie, which is pretty punk rock for a CGI movie made by one of the largest media conglomerates in the world."

Labor Day (2014)

"It's essentially a trashy romance novel disguised as an Oscar prestige movie - the kind of story that sets back feminism several decades."
