Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"In a Hollywood landscape where so much action cinema in plagued with sameness, I can not in good conscience give anything with this level of inspired design an entirely negative review."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

""Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is designed to fill a pipeline, a matter of volume more than quality. It's bland, familiar, lazy and drunk on a deadly mix of nostalgia and unthinking adrenaline."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"Behold! "Guardians of the Galaxy" is the type of movie where every second sentence starts with "behold!" "

Magic in the Moonlight (2014)

"It isn't as showy or obvious as one of Allen's (many) masterpieces, but it is quite good and deserves your time and respect."

Mood Indigo (2014)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"[A] heavy movie, even if it is hidden in the gorilla suit that is action-adventure entertainment."

Earth to Echo (2014)

"Combining some classic plot movements and plenty of modern trappings (just, like, a lot of cell phones), Earth to Echo is a sweet family film that has something for everyone."

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"It'd be easy to dismiss Edge of Tomorrow as just another blunt-force summer movie, but it's sharp as a scalpel in the deft hands of its makers, with the kind of smarts, wit, filmmaking and force too many other summer films can only dream of."

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"It's a brilliant gameplan for a studio: Manipulate time and space to make the X-Men movies infinitely re-bootable, infinitely re-castable and assuredly profitable, until it sounds like, and is, a kind of prayer: Forever and ever, X-Men."

Godzilla (2014)

""Godzilla" has technical prowess and computing power that the early efforts could only dream of; but by upping the effects without paying attention to the affect, "Godzilla" gains majesty and loses meaning."

The Quiet Ones (2014)

" "The Quiet Ones" is rated PG-13, but it's scarier than R-rated gorefests, like "Proxy," "Nurse 3D," and "American Mary." Anyone can create disgust; creating slowly-building disquiet is entirely another proposition."

A Haunted House 2 (2014)

Noah (2014)

"W.H. Auden cautioned against those who "read the Bible for its prose," but after "Noah," perhaps the better warning is to look out for those people who read the Bible for its potentially profitable widescreen IMAX action scenes"
