Asmodexia (2014)

"Asmodexia isn't exactly a biblical epic, but a rejuvenating finish brings meaning to a movie that otherwise would seem minimalistic and generic - finding a savior in the nick of time."

Godzilla (2014)

"Only stunning in its scale and visual spectacle, this new Godzilla is brutally undercut by a laughable script and a misguided focus on puny humans and not the King of Monsters himself."

No Good Deed (2014)

"Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson are great actors, but No Good Deed is silly and cliché-riddled in spite of itself from beginning till end."
