John Wick (2014)

"Wick is as you would expect, all style and no substance, not even a hint. What it does, it does well, but its ambitions are incredibly limited."

Fury (2014)

"Fury cannot quite rise to the level of the modern war films it aspires to, but in its own way it is a worthy addition to the genre."

The Best Of Me (2014)

"Corny, dumb and predictable and rife with clichés, it's Dawson's Crap."

Fury (2014)

"Quite an achievement for director David Ayer in creating something far more expansive and cinematic than some of his earlier films."

Birdman (2014)

"May be hard to wrap one's head around, but it's easily one of the most thought-provoking films of the past ten years, maybe more."

Inherent Vice (2014)

"P.T. Anderson's most uninspired work to date and mostly a worthless waste of time."

Whiplash (2014)

"Few movies can achieve the highest benchmark of 'perfection,' and movies like Whiplash only come along once in a blue moon."

Men, Women & Children (2014)

"Another fine step forward for Jason Reitman as a filmmaker, although for some, the film's message may be a little on-point."

Gone Girl (2014)

Jimi: All Is by My Side (2014)

Tracks (2014)

"A beautiful and inspirational story, and a real filmmaking coup for Curran which should be getting a far more high-profile release than it's being given."

The Drop (2014)

"A perfectly respectable crime-drama that's only hindered by the fact it feels redundant to a genre that's already become fairly oversaturated."

The Equalizer (2014)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"As the stars get younger and the action gets tamer, Expendables comes to resemble more and more of its direct-to-video kin, and worth about as much of your time."

The Identical (2014)

"Movies like this get made all the time, sometimes they even get released into theaters with a modicum of TV advertising, and they're all about this good, which is to say neither bad nor good, just easily forgettable."

The Judge (2014)

"Despite a strong cast, it's obvious where the problems lie: a weak script and a director working beyond his ability to make the movie work dramatically."

Starred Up (2014)

The November Man (2014)

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"For all that doesn't work, a lot does and hopefully with time and distance, Gunn and his collaborators can chuck all of the non-silly stuff they just don't need for Guardians 2. They've got a firm foundation to build off of."

A Most Wanted Man (2014)

Sex Tape (2014)
