Draft Day (2014)

"Holy cow, is this movie safe. That it manages to still be entertaining is to its great credit."

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)

"Hats off to the sequel that begins with poking fun at its inherent shortcomings - in a musical number, no less - then proceeds to surpass its predecessor in nearly every way."

Divergent (2014)

"This movie could use some teeth, and it's surprising that they didn't use the ones that the book provided them."

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)

"You know what to expect when watching one of Anderson's films, and his latest doesn't disappoint, overflowing with colorful characters, zany plot twists and sublime production design."

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"You will learn virtually nothing from this movie, except that Eva Green has very nice breasts."

Non-Stop (2014)

"The beats and twists may be familiar, but it's well executed, and director Jaume Collet-Serra wisely resists the urge to go turbo, as it were."

David Medsker

Pompeii (2014)

"Everything about Pompeii feels half-assed - from its bland romance, to its terrible dialogue, to the worthless addition of 3D."

3 Days To Kill (2014)

"The acting performances elevate the material from 'predictable' to 'predictable but fun.'"

RoboCop (2014)

"The fact that it's not a complete failure will feel like a win to some fans... [but] its inability to capitalize on the promise that it shows early on is perhaps the biggest disappointment."

The Monuments Men (2014)

"A giant mess tonally... It's as if [Clooney] was caught in two minds as to which kind of movie he wanted to make."

Posted Feb 6, 2014

Jason Zingale

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."

Posted Feb 6, 2014

David Medsker

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."

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)

"My wife's take: "This is the first Jack Ryan movie that didn't put me to sleep." She's hoping the studio will use that for the Blu-ray cover."

The Legend of Hercules (2014)

"If there were any reservations about just how bad of an actor Kellan Lutz really is, The Legend of Hercules more than confirms it."

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013)

"While Stiller has retained the core spirit of the original story, he's produced a more modernized, feel-good road movie that's got a bit of a Forrest Gump vibe to it without quite the same heavy-handedness."

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

"Between Leonardo DiCaprio's brilliant lead performance and Terrence Winter's excellent script, it's without a doubt the funniest movie that Scorsese has ever directed."

Grudge Match (2013)

"Grudge Match is funny, at times explosively so, but also uneven and flawed."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013)

"Anchorman 2 is at times funnier than its predecessor, but it's also wildly inconsistent, bouncing aimlessly between gut-busting hilarity and entire sequences that miss their mark."

Her (2014)

"Her is smart, thought provoking, and one of the year's best films. Now please shut down your laptop and go talk to someone face to face for a while."

Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

"The trailer for Saving Mr. Banks resembles the film only slightly more than The Shining resembles that fake trailer for the film that made the rounds 10 or so years ago."

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013)

"The Desolation of Smaug is a lot of fun, but for the love of God, just end it already."

American Hustle (2013)

"Immensely entertaining, impeccably structured and featuring excellent performances from its entire cast, American Hustle is one of the year's absolute best films and a serious contender for every major award."

Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

"Although the movie is a fairly bittersweet portrait of personal failure (a running theme in the Coens' repertoire), it's not without their trademark wit and humor."

Frozen (2013)

"It is encouraging to see Disney crafting women who are focused on something other than the affections of a boy."

Delivery Man (2013)

"Had they kept Vince Vaughn properly restrained, he may have delivered exactly what the role required. As it is, they gave him too much rope, and the movie suffers because of it."

David Medsker

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

"Under the assured direction of Francis Lawrence (stepping in for the departing Gary Ross), Catching Fire doesn't just improve upon Collins' book, but the first movie as well."

Santa sangre (Holy Blood) (1990)

"What's probably most amazing about Santa Sangre is that most of it works, and almost never does it feel like it's being unsettling just for the sake of it."

Nebraska (2013)

"Though it features some good laughs and decent performances, the movie never really goes anywhere."

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

"While they absolutely stick the landing in the third act, getting to it is a bit of a chore."

Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

"Dallas Buyers Club isn't the kind of movie that would normally attract this much Oscar buzz... but it benefits from a couple of great performances that demand to be seen."

About Time (2013)

"This is not only [Richard Curtis'] most mature and personal work to date, but it's also one of his best."

Ender's Game (2013)

"It's like Harry Potter meets Full Metal Jacket, and while that's certainly an intriguing mash-up, the movie doesn't quite live up to the book's reputation."

Last Vegas (2013)

"Where action movies are equated with popcorn, Last Vegas is comfort food. It's not terribly good for you, but it sure tastes good."

12 Years a Slave (2013)

"Though Solomon Northupp's story is one that deserves to be told, it could have benefited from a little restraint."

Captain Phillips (2013)

"A gripping hostage thriller that boasts some of the year's finest performances, not only by Hanks, but his amateur co-stars as well."

The Conjuring (2013)

"With any luck, The Conjuring will lead potential future horror filmmakers raised on a diet of torture porn and slasher films to rethink their approach. One can hope, at least."

Gravity (2013)

"Gravity is magical, the kind of movie that will inspire a generation of kids to grab cameras and let their imaginations run wild, the proverbial face that launches a thousand ships."

Don Jon (2013)

Rush (2013)

"Rush teeters on the edge of being a really good film, but despite some fantastic source material, it never fully seizes the opportunity."

You're Next (2013)

"It's not exactly an instant classic, but You're Next is a horror movie lover's treat that embraces as many genre tropes as it subverts."
