The Giver (2014)

" In the movies, as in life, timing is everything. In the case of The Giver it's a movie that's several years too late. "

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

" While several of the summer's films have had plenty of battles and destruction, this is the one that leaves us with something other than a conventional happy ending. "

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

" ..a thoughtful, action-packed, and occasionally amusing take on the [time loop] premise melded into the alien invasion story. For summer entertainment, it will more than do. "

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Son of Batman (2014)

" With a title such as Son of Batman you'd be expecting some more kiddy-friendly material, but this latest made-for-DVD animated effort by Warner Home Video is simply too violent and bloody for younger viewers. "

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
