Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For crackles with dark energy and, with the addition of Eva Green as a sultry femme fatale, entertains as a sublimely sinful pleasure - even if the original remains unparalleled."

If I Stay (2014)

"ChloŽ Grace Moretz is luminous as always, but the lazy writing and dull direction she's saddled with here is so conspicuous that even the book's most ardent fans will likely leave disappointed."

Selfie: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" It might be too caustic for its own good, but Selfie, led by the marvelous Karen Gillan, skewers the social media generation with more wit and panache than its on-the-nose title would suggest. "

Locke (2014)

"Tom Hardy is electric in the title role, and the harmony that the actor achieves with writer/director Steven Knight elevates Locke from a simple gimmick into a simply brilliant exploration of the human psyche."

The Possession of Michael King (2014)

"The Possession Of Michael King is a surprisingly enjoyable "Possession Movies With People's Names In The Title" genre entry that has me super excited to see what writer/director David Jung will do next. "

Are You Here (2014)

"Are You Here isn't the debut we hoped Matthew Weiner would deliver, as it struggles to tell a full, meaty story in the smaller confines on a Hollywood movie."

Jersey Shore Massacre (2014)

"Imagine the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore stuck in a slasher movie - but then remove any bits of entertainment, intelligence or respectful execution you might assume would be present. Who pulled the pin on this grenade?"

The November Man (2014)

Welcome To New York ()

"Welcome to New York is depraved, confrontational and insidiously intriguing. Gerard Depardieu's electric performance needs to be seen to be believed."

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"The Expendables 3 runs entirely on this action supergroup's infectious energy, because without the likes of Gibson and Arnie, the hollow core of Stallone's story would be a lot harder to swallow."

Divergent (2014)

Into The Storm (2014)

And So It Goes (2014)
