Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
"The fine line between abuse and pleasure is so thin it's almost non-existent. Here is a Valentine's Day movie that will certainly make bank, but you aren't helping yourself or anyone else by seeing it. "
Still Alice (2015)
"'Mockingjay, Part 1" is only half awesome because it is only half a movie. Suzanne Collins' final book in the trilogy has been segmented into two films, massacring the momentum the previous films had delicately built. "
Gone Girl (2014)
"Melissa McCarthy is back with "Tammy," one of her strongest roles yet -- a result of her direct creative control on this project -- but apart from her performance, this road-trip comedy unfortunately coasts by on autopilot. "
22 Jump Street (2014)
"Since this genre has more than exhausted itself over three and a half decades, writers Michael Bacall, Oren Uziel and Rodney Rothman are smart to hold a mirror up to the buddy cop genre, generating the comedy through self-awareness and self-deprecation. "
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
""Neighbors" - or more aptly 'get off my lawn: the movie' - is suburbia's worst nightmare: a quiet young family versus the horde of an unruly, perverse and destructive frat house. Equal parts heart and raunch, this latest Seth Rogen gem is all laughs. "
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
"Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey in this long - very long - two and a half hour long - did we mention its long? - sequel. They didn't quite use their spidey-sense in the cutting room. "
In Your Eyes (2015)
""Winter Soldier" is a nod to the great espionage films of the 1970s, movies like "3 Days of the Condor" and "The Parallax View," even going so far to bridge the two by casting "Condor" star Robert Redford as shady politician Alexander Pierce. "
Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
The Monuments Men (2014)
"Clooney has certainly created a throwback to old Hollywood war films, which is fine, but almost unsure of his own recipe, throws far too many ingredients into the mix ultimately creating a war film that is indeed enjoyable but suffers an identity crisis. "
Labor Day (2014)
August: Osage County (2013)
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
American Hustle (2013)
"An awkward start, especially as it takes a moment to get used to Russell's style and tone, but once "Hustle" finds its footing it really takes off and is one of the most intelligent and enjoyable films of the year. "
""The Hobbit" has been saved... at least for the time being. "The Desolation of Smaug" is a vast improvement over the first installment and is an excellent return to the level of quality as "The Lord of the Rings." "
Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
"Emma Thompson's brilliant performance, a story that captures the joy and heartache of creation, the nostalgia of the Sherman brothers' classic songs, combined with Thomas Newman's bittersweet original score, make this a sweetheart of a picture. "
Out of the Furnace (2013)
"The biggest assets to any classic Disney musical are the songs, and the tunes in "Frozen" just happen to be the weakest link, making this attempt to return to the glory days of "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin," an arduous, frigid journey. "
"A beautiful, timeless American film whose story, characters and performances should be treasured. This is one of the year's best films and once again, Alexander Payne has given us a tender, poetic masterpiece. "
