Buzzard (2015)

"Buzzard, written, directed and edited by Joel Potrykus, who plays Marty's work friend Derek, is a comedy that grows less funny by the scam, deepening desperation and eruption of white-hot anger." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Muses of Bashevis Singer (2014)

"The Muses has a couple of distracting typos in its on-screen identifiers, but it's a fresh way to examine a master storyteller who died in 1991. He no longer can tell his own tale, but others can and do." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 94%

The Farewell Party (2015)

"The laughter leavens the suffering and you may not agree with all of the actions, but the movie will give you much to deliberate, debate and decide for yourself while you can." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Dough (2016)

"The tone is a bit all over the place, but the leads develop a nice rapport, subtle yet crucial messages about working and living in harmony are conveyed, and Dough delivers second chances, comeuppances and comedy along the way." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 52%

Demolition (2016)

"It's not for everyone and lost some luster on second viewing, but Demolition builds on Mr. Gyllenhaal's ability to aim for acting adventure and steer clear of safe." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hello, My Name is Doris (2016)

"Field is at the top of her game, and you will cringe, worry, fear and cheer for Doris." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Fastball (2016)

"As the boys of summer prepare to take the field again, Fastball is a briskly paced, welcome warm-up, beer and peanuts not included." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)

"Too often, though, it feels recycled or full of inflated problems and it's certainly not witty, sophisticated comedy. But it has a big heart." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"[Batman v Superman] looks rich, explores some interesting notions about justice, vengeance and deterrence, and works wonderfully until a CGI creature emerges as an adversary." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

"With some exceptions, dragging out these adaptations seems to be more about money than creative solutions to fat novels." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Miracles from Heaven (2016)

"Miracles is about Anna's healing and a belief in God, but also about the day-to-day kindnesses of strangers or friends that can make all the difference in the world. " ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Gods Of Egypt (2016)

"Definitely not one for the gods or the ages, in 2-D or 3-D." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Birdman (2014)

"In terms of moviemaking, this is a high-wire act and all eyes are skyward on Mr. Keaton, who proves himself up to the challenge." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"The only thing more adorable than one panda or a father-son pair of pandas is an entire village of the two-toned creatures." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Room (2015)

"It will remind you of the lifeline that love and hope and courage can provide in the darkest of circumstances and rooms." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Abrams has served the fans and first-timers exceedingly well." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Nightcrawler (2014)

"It grows more and more preposterous but it never loosens its grip thanks to a riveting Mr. Gyllenhaal." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

42 (2013)

"The drama casts Rickey and Robinson in a heroic light in a story clearly meant to inspire, celebrate a pioneer and jog our collective or selective memory." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Legend of Hercules (2014)

"The Legend of Hercules should be stirring and formidable but instead proves largely lifeless and ludicrous." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Caucus (2013)

"Caucus allows moviegoers to tag along, like a silent observer forbidden from asking questions, in the run-up to the Iowa Caucus in January 2012." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 53%

Out of the Furnace (2013)

"The parts are greater than the whole, and it's all so extreme that it feels like too much, but Mr. Cooper manages to allow his actors to turn coldly crazy or blindly angry or uncharacteristically bloodthirsty." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

White House Down (2013)

"At a time when so many movies seem humorless, White House Down allows a few laughs. It isn't meant to be examined as Oscar fodder but watched as pure summer entertainment." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Man of Steel (2013)

"Mr. Cavill distinguishes himself as a worthy successor to Christopher Reeve although one charged with much more physically punishing scenes and almost no hint of Clark Kent as sweet bumbler." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"An action thriller rooted in hyper-reality." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)

"The wigs (oh, the wigs!) and costumes and magic tricks only take you so far, though, and the movie stages a maneuver at the end but then shows us exactly how it was done, after providing the basics." ‐Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
