When The Game Stands Tall (2014)

"Despite having a unique message, When the Game Stands Tall is pretty boring stuff."

To Be Takei (2014)

"If you don't know George Takei, and you will never be asked to come over to his house for tea and a pleasant conversation, then To Be Takei is probably the next best thing."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"It's amazing how much has to happen in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in order to make every single piece of it seem pointless. "

Let's Be Cops (2014)

"I'd ask this movie to turn in its badge and gun, but I wouldn't want to give it the satisfaction."

The Giver (2014)

"A well-made movie that could have been a lot more entertaining, but also a lot less intelligent. I'll take it."

The History Of Future Folk (2013)

"D'Aulaire's deadpan gravitas makes the low budget sci-fi undertones feel real enough to juxtapose with the ridiculous premise."

Into The Storm (2014)

"The dirty documentary style of Into the Storm only calls attention to how fake its characters and situations really are."

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"Both Stallone as creator/screenwriter and the filmmakers he brings on each time have learned how to tell a large ensemble story. All the fun stuff is still there but it's even stronger. "

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"There's no angst in this new franchise, no elaborate metaphor and no ambition to speak of. And although you could argue that that is in and of itself a problem, at least it smoothes out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' many, many flaws."

Get On Up (2014)

"The movie we imagine it should be, crackling across the screen with a beat you can damn near dance to."

Hercules (2014)

"Dwayne Johnson was crafted by the Movie Gods to play Hercules. He's spent years slaying mythical wrestlers, bodybuilding with Mark Wahlberg and protecting the children of high-ranking scientists to finally get here. And Ratner has him play it humble."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"James Gunn succeeds at turning a relatively familiar and kinda dumb story into an impressively emotional and satisfying journey."

And So It Goes (2014)

"And So It Goes is harmless. But it's also a clumsy bore."

A Most Wanted Man (2014)

"This magnificent thriller is thrilling not just for being one of Hoffman's final (and best) performances, but also for how Corbjin uses Hoffman as a thespian bomb that explodes at the narrative meeting points."

Lucy (2014)

"The action detracts from the sci-fi, the sci-fi makes the action seem unnecessary."

Magic in the Moonlight (2014)

"It may be familiar, but Magic in the Moonlight dazzles nevertheless: somehow it's just as clever as it thinks it is."

Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014)

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"A live-action stealth video game, complete with traps, night-vision and chest-high walls [...] In short: it's pretty cool."

Sex Tape (2014)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"It is, in the end, just a well-made movie about apes fighting humans in a post-apocalyptic landscape, and that's a very fun thing to watch."

Deliver Us from Evil (2014)

"It's too trite to be a good cop movie and too stunted to be an effective horror movie. Two mediocre tastes that taste mediocre together."

Earth to Echo (2014)

Begin Again (2014)

"Exactly the inspiring, uplifting movie I needed to see this month. It has been a rough summer, so I needed to be reminded that there's always room for new inspiration and new relationships. "

Snowpiercer (2014)

"By the time "Snowpiercer" closes we've been guided through an exhilarating, videogame-fighting infographic of the post-globalization world ecosystem: climate change, child labor and population control. And it's fun, too!"

Jersey Boys (2014)

"The plot and execution of Jersey Boys demands a certain amount of momentum and zeal that Eastwood's restrained approach never quite captures."

The Signal (2014)

"There is certainly an intriguing, horrific set-up in "The Signal". But where "The Signal" goes is probably the least interesting place that Eubank could've taken us from where he started us."

About Last Night (2014)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"It's more like a Roger Moore James Bond movie, maybe even Moonraker but I say that as a Bond fan who appreciates the blatant outrageousness of Moonraker. If Moonraker sounds like an insult, then Days of Future Past is at least Octopussy."

Filth (2014)

A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)

Maleficent (2014)

"Maleficent is probably the only rape-and-revenge movie you will ever be able to watch with your kids, and that alone really does make it worth watching. In a good way."

Blended (2014)

"Insipid and outdated, but after several films that celebrate outright abuse, it does come across like a microscopic step in the right direction, if only for an Adam Sandler film."
