88% Gone Girl (2014) As rewarding as a film as it was as a book. In both cases, you walk away feeling gut-punched by a story that manages to save a couple of surprises for the end. ‐ Hollywood & Fine

78% Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger (2014) Berlinger may be our premier true-crime documentarian (though he has many other arrows in his quiver)...a crisp (if dense) examination of a shameful and tragic story.‐ Hollywood & Fine

Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2014
95% Snowpiercer (2014) Excessive in an interesting way for much longer than you think it could be. Unfortunately, that's not long enough. ‐ Hollywood & Fine

Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2014
89% Venus in Fur (2014) It's tricky, tasty and tense...Seigner holds her own - and then some - opposite the subtly expressive Mathieu Amalric.‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2014

82% Ivory Tower (2014) An infuriating film, in its description of the way that a college education threatens to bankrupt generations while promising a future it may not be able to deliver.‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2014
59% Hellion (2014) A downbeat father-son story that moves too slowly to earn the viewer's continued forbearance.‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2014
66% The Rover (2014) Has the feel of the fascinatingly aimless late '60s westerns of Monte Hellman. So you'll need patience to appreciate it.‐ Hollywood & Fine

84% 22 Jump Street (2014) An at-best-mediocre comedy with a few more laughs than the limp 2012 film..like so much contemporary comedy, isn't really about anything, except its own meta-ness. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2014
83% Dormant Beauty (2014) Like Bellocchio's draggy, overrated Vincere, this movie wants us to believe in its depth, while mostly just skimming the surface. ‐ Hollywood & Fine

90% Obvious Child (2014) It's a small film but should provide a big launch for Jenny Slate. Now I want to see her in a comedy with Kathryn Hahn.‐ Hollywood & Fine

86% Willow Creek (2014) The final 20 minutes of the film prove once again that what you can't see is infinitely more frightening than what you can..leaves you goosey and tense. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2014

33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) Think of MacFarlane as a post-modern classicist, who loves his source material, even if he can't resist the impulse to mock its conventions..I laughed frequently and heartily.‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 30, 2014
60% The Grand Seduction (2014) The plot holes are gigantic, but the spirit is so playful and breezy that you can sit back and enjoy the ride.‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 30, 2014

27% The Love Punch (2014) Fairly lightweight, but Brosnan and Thompson bring such a sense of fun to the slapstick that you ignore how insubstantial it all is. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 22, 2014
90% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) An OK comic-book movie which, like so many of these efforts, has a reach that far exceeds its grasp. It's not bad but it could have been lots better. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 22, 2014
74% Godzilla (2014) It's hard to imagine anyone who's serious about film taking this movie seriously...It doesn't suck. The fact that it exists, however, does. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2014
88% The Discoverers (2014) Griffin Dunne, an under-appreciated actor, hasn't had a role this good in ages - and he makes the most of it. ‐ Hollywood & Fine

Read More | Posted May 13, 2014
63% Million Dollar Arm (2014) McCarthy's script has an emotional honesty and a spareness that make it seem sincere rather than schmaltzy..Will lift your spirits and choke you up at the same time. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 13, 2014
38% God's Pocket (2014) Gritty, witty and downbeat, an alternately thoughtful and juicy adaptation of Pete Dexter's novel. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
Read More | Posted May 9, 2014
24% Devil's Knot (2014) You would think that the horrific case of the West Memphis Three would not need further retelling. This film has little to add to the conversation. ‐ Hollywood & Fine
