"There are many funny moments and some pleasing suspense towards the end, but as a cautionary tale about the dangers of overeating and obesity it's more likely to boost sales at the candy bar. That may be one good reason for watching it at home. "

22 Jump Street (2014)
"While much of this is pretty standard stuff, it's all easy to take thanks to the engaging performances from the two leads. The screenplay contains quite a few funny lines, and the direction by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller is crisp and efficient. "
How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
"Those who made [this film] know the kids who adored the original have grown since the [first one] and they're trying mightily to grow with them. That counts for something in today's popular culture universe, even if they seem to be trying awfully hard. "

The Two Faces of January (2014)
"Amini's handling of this gripping drama makes the film intriguing even when some of the plot developments stretch the boundaries of belief, and the film boasts three very strong performances in the leading roles. "
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
"Edge of Tomorrow is acceptable escapist entertainment whose unexpected plot developments give it much-needed originality. The action scenes are handled with expected skill, the heroes are intrepid and the creatures are suitable nasty and vicious. "
"It has become something of a tradition to dismiss the latest Adam Sandler movie outright or, if one is feeling particularly generous, damn it with faint praise. Blended is no exception to this strategy. "
Under the Skin (2014)
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
"Fart jokes are all too plentiful, along with copious references to bodily fluids, but in this zany context the film gets away with them. And the screenplay is crammed with witty lines. The western lives on. "
The Trip To Italy (2014)
"But the chief pleasure lies once again in the free-flowing and largely improvised chitchat between Rob and Steve, little sketches and impersonations, riffs built on the latest fads and fashionable cliches. "
"There are sentimental elements, and not all the songs are top-drawer, but despite that the unlikely idea of having characters burst into song as they walk down the street or drink in a pub worked for me. "
"If you get right down to it Baran represents the new sheriff attempting to bring law and order to an unruly and violent town while dallying with the local schoolmistress. The result is a film of great cultural interest plus suspense and humour. "
The Babadook (2014)
"The Babadook proves once again that an original and personal vision is the principal requisite for an interesting film, but in this case the director's work with two wonderful actors is crucial to the film's success. "
"The film's main theme, the restoration of the father-son relationship, while not very original, is sympathetically handled and young Anthony gives a winning performance as a sensible, loyal child who is able to teach his jaded father a thing or two. "
The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013)
"Banal riffs on pop culture themes vie for laughs with depressing jokes about tits, balls and dicks. The low-point has Byrne (who I hope was well paid) being "milked" by Rogen. Whatever happened to comedy? "
"There's darkness and poignancy in this charmingly irreverent escapade, and I was never sure whether to laugh or cry. It's all a bit of a dog's breakfast -- but what a friendly, frisky, lovable dog it is. "

"Nevertheless, Transcendence is superior to most other sci-fi films these days; it's briskly paced, consummately made and never boring. Puzzling and occasionally challenging it may be, but it's made with style and imagination. "
The Other Woman (2014)
"The director's lack of subtlety extends to the selection of music used on the soundtrack; [like] the theme from Mission: Impossible and that's only one of the blindingly obvious uses of music cues. "
