When The Game Stands Tall (2014)

"I like where When the Game Stands Tall goes, though I don't like all of how it gets there. Clear eyes, full hearts, narrow victory."

The Trip To Italy (2014)

"While Rick Steves possesses an extensive amount of useful information, he may have some competition if Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon ever start compiling travel guides."

Dinosaur 13 (2014)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"Even worse than 2007's all-animated TMNT, putting this century one crappy Ninja Turtles-related movie ahead of the last one."

Calvary (2014)

"While Gleeson always cuts a large figure, here he's a captivating, simmering pot, a priest who shows his kind are people too."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"With a tone that lands closer to clever than snarky, GOTG represents the rare comic-book movie that's enjoyable with or without sound."

Manhattan: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

I Origins (2014)

"The overly hypothetical, weakly ambiguous I Origins gets tangled in scientific gobbledygook from which it never escapes, with no actual implications about identity."

Boyhood (2014)

"It's easy to watch the film and recall similar moments in your own life. That's not enough; the film needs to inspire reflection, not just recollection."

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"Would people really wait until the official start time to begin and lower their guns the moment it ends, like 'Top Chef' contestants being told to put down their utensils?"

Extant: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Earth to Echo (2014)
