The Ivory Game (2016)

"While it is wonderful to see rangers, conservationists and activists in the documentary trying to fight and expose this terrible crime, you fear it's a losing battle." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Born To Be Blue (2016)

"While not a definitive exploration of Baker's life, "Born to be Blue" does offer a lively portrayal of the man's elusiveness." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)

"Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!! is delightful fun, a 1980s college romp complete with sex and offbeat hijinks." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma (2016)

"Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma provocatively examines the question of what makes a homegrown jihadist. There is no easy answer, of course." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Amy Schumer: Live From the Apollo (2015)

"While Schumer slyly plays off of her own girly persona, she also is willing to take just enough time to make a joke real - use the "cold hard facts," as a sports channel says." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015)

"Hollywood and Scientology have often collided, but never quite as explosively as they do in Going Clear, the revealing documentary by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

"While Catching Fire could easily stand on its own, it also should make audiences hungry for the next installment." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

"The running time of 2 hours and 45 minutes allows plenty of time for lots of explosions and inane dialogue." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

The Zero Theorem (2014)

"Qohen and Bainsley are quirkily interesting though being little more than cyphers. And as in any Gilliam picture, there are some crazy flights of fancy, but this one is never grounded enough to come alive." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Interstellar (2014)

"Interstellar is chockablock with philosophical ideas, visual effects and theoretical physics from Nolan and his brother, Jonathan, who co-wrote the script." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

"Considering some of the sci-fi dreck from Hollywood in the last couple of decades, Jupiter Ascending isn't that bad of a film, just one we have seen before in more interesting ways." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Séraphine (2009)

"Rather painterly and a bit distant. It never digs into the messiest of either the artist's or her patron's lives." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

La Fille de Monaco (The Girl from Monaco) (2009)

"The film doesn't add up to much in the end, but if you like leggy, flirty blondes, dark, brooding tough-guy bodyguards and fussy middle-aged lawyers, it's entertaining." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Etz Limon (Lemon Tree) (2009)

"The film, though, belongs to the two women. Lipaz-Michael gives Mira a degree of empathy that's important to the film, while Abbass -- is a striking and formidable presence as Salma." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (2009)

"Michael Barrett's cinematography gives the film and the city of Pittsburgh just enough of a picturesque dream-like quality that, like its protagonist, you'll remember." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006)

"Even when Tell No One's story gets a bit too convoluted for its own good, the cinematography, the acting and especially the action will keep you glued to the screen." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Red Roses and Petrol (2008)

"With her static camera, director and co-writer Tamar Simon Hoffs has done little to move it out of its staginess." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008)

"Zohan skirts any real issues, but maybe crass and messy is more reflective of the times and situation." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Boarding Gate (2008)

"[Assayas] has concocted a plot that is dizzying and annoying at times, and it's hard to care about the characters in the shifting story. But B-movie veteran Argento's portrayal of Sandra is like watching a car careening down an incline." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

First Snow (2007)

Flight of the Phoenix (2004)

"What drove the original was the clash of personalities, but here, when all you have is a just lot of sand, things get pretty dry pretty fast." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002)

"Comic-book logic in action movies has seemingly given way to video-game logic which is almost no logic at all and spooling out Ballistic's inane, convoluted plot is a waste of time." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Rock Star (2001)

"By-the-numbers direction from Stephen Herek ... and a script by John Stockwell that's too intent on making everything fit neatly together rather than reaching for any truth, combine to undermine the film." ‐Los Angeles Daily News
