The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
"Ultimately, The Fault in Our Stars overcomes those faults because of Woodley, who uses her instincts and abundant talent to depict Hazel as a fully realized young woman who's more than just the sum of her symptoms. "
John Wick (2014)
20,000 Days on Earth (2014)
"If you're not already a fan of Australian-born rocker Nick Cave, the hyper-stylized documentary 20,000 Days on Earth will make you one -- and increase your knowledge of and appreciation for the artistic process at work. "
The Theory of Everything (2014)
A Most Wanted Man (2014)
"The lead actresses bring power and pain to their roles. Kulesza captures the bitterness of Wanda's life as a cynical Communist apparatchik, while Trzebuchowska gives quiet grace and strength to Anna. "
"Edwards exercises a sure hand marshalling the special effects needed to make Gojira's brawls realistic. He also pivots smoothly from the skyscraper-size action to the human drama at the monsters' feet. "

The Gambler (2014)
"A richly realized exercise in style, in which an action director ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes' " Rupert Wyatt) and an action star (Mark "I think we got a Trans-foamah" Wahlberg) dive deep into a '70s noir classic and come up aces. "
Big Eyes (2014)
The Interview (2014)
Into the Woods (2014)
"Sondheim and his collaborator James Lapine ... have to sacrifice a thing or two within the House of Mouse. But their vision, of children's stories reimagined for thinking adults, remains gloriously intact. "
Arthur Christmas (2011)
"The scenes portray a sense of innocence made all the more affecting by the fact that we know the war went on for years afterward, and a good (and true) example of why we'd fight a lot fewer wars if regular people made those decisions. "
The Secret World of Arrietty (2012)
"Shooting in crisp black-and-white and with sparse dialogue (on title cards), Berger creates gorgeous scenes that evoke not only the silent era but early '30s horror (including a reference to Tod Browning's Freaks that's oddly endearing). "
