Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 88%

The Wind Rises (2014)

"In The Wind Rises as elsewhere, Miyazaki's artistry is undeniable, but the storytelling is flabby." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 49%

RoboCop (2014)

"The new Robocop is a generic shoot-em-up for much of the film, one no different than any other." Washington Free Beacon

The Monuments Men (2014)

"The movie's biggest sin is a complete and utter lack of dramatic tension." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 96%

The Act Of Killing (2013)

"The Act of Killing is as much a movie about the movies as it is a movie about real-life horror." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 56%

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)

"As an action-thriller, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is more or less competent. As an heir to the Jack Ryan mantle, however, it is less so." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 75%

Lone Survivor (2014)

"Berg's film is beautifully shot and thrillingly paced; he and his actors have a real affection for these men and feel a real duty to portray them honorably. " Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 77%

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

"If one watches this film and thinks Scorsese has crafted it to exculpate rather than expose the behavior of Jordan Belfort ... well, one has rather missed the point." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 95%

Her (2013)

"Jonze's film is a quietly unsettling and impressive accomplishment, one that makes us believe its protagonists are in love despite the fact they can never be together." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 94%

Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

"The film is vintage Coen Brothers: quietly funny, a bit arch, and beautifully shot." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 93%

American Hustle (2013)

"American Hustle is about life as a performance, the ways in which we perceive ourselves and wish to be perceived by others." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 74%

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug manages to zip nicely along. Yes, it's 2 hours and 40 minutes. But it doesn't really feel like it." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 42%

Homefront (2013)

"What sets the movie apart is the performance of Franco. His turn as Gator elevates the affair." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 89%

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is much of the same: lots of standing around and talking without much in the way of flair or excitement." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 64%

Dear Mr. Watterson (2013)

"This is an appreciation steeped in nostalgia, something for fans of the strip to sit back and simply enjoy." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 66%

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

"When Thor: The Dark World doesn't work-and it doesn't, far too frequently-it's when the writers and director take the whole thing much too seriously." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 60%

Ender's Game (2013)

"A leaden, confusing affair that's all the more frustrating because there's a kernel of a good, possibly even great, movie here." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 35%

The Counselor (2013)

"A masterful film, one that succeeds in conveying the nature of a cold, uncaring cosmos with remorseless tenacity." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 96%

12 Years a Slave (2013)

"12 Years a Slave is more of an important film than a great one." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 93%

Captain Phillips (2013)

"A gripping action-thriller, one that hews closely to the events as they occurred, and offers a glimpse into the fight for survival endured by all parties to the crime." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 96%

Gravity (2013)

"Gravity is less a feature film than cinema as experience: a new frontier in filmmaking that will appeal to studios trying to attract people to movie theaters." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 79%

Metallica Through the Never (2013)

"Metallica: Through the Never- three-quarters-concert film, one-quarter-disaster epic-is the most fun I've had at the movies this year." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 81%

Prisoners (2013)

"Not for the weak of stomach, Prisoners is a sure signifier that summer is over, more serious fare has arrived in theaters, and the Oscar race has begun." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 29%

The Family (2013)

"Those excited for the return of Besson to the action-comedy game likely will come away disappointed from this jumbled, visually bland effort." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 44%

The Lords of Salem (2013)

"Lords of Salem may be a misfire, but it's an interesting one from an auteur with much to offer a genre that has devolved into a sodden mass of jump scares." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 78%

The Grandmaster (2013)

"Wong Kar Wai's latest film is by turns elegant and frustrating, beautiful and hard to track, sumptuous and spartan." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 89%

The World's End (2013)

"The World's End is pretty blasted funny and a fine finale to director/cowriter Edgar Wright and star/cowriter Simon Pegg's so-called 'Cornetto Trilogy.'" Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 31%

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

"In trading a modestly subversive critique for a modestly successful romp, Kick-Ass 2 falls short of the expectations set by its predecessor." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 67%

Elysium (2013)

"It seems to me that Elysium has its heroes and villains confused." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 41%

Only God Forgives (2013)

"This is more a horror film than a martial arts extravaganza." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 69%

The Wolverine (2013)

"The Wolverine is at its best when it deals with Logan's internal struggles and helps return fans of the franchise to the modern day." Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 71%

Pacific Rim (2013)

"Pacific Rim may work best in its smaller moments, a testament to director Guillermo del Toro's ability to build worlds." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 31%

The Lone Ranger (2013)

"The Lone Ranger is a weird mixture of daffy slapstick and deadly seriousness." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 50%

White House Down (2013)

"The script reads as if it was written by a college freshman who just got his first taste of Zinn and Chomsky." Washington Free Beacon

The Bling Ring (2013)

"In the United States of Narcissism, you're nothing if you can't see yourself on a screen." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 67%

World War Z (2013)

"A mishmash of epic action, close quarter combat, and family drama that feels neither grand nor intimate, just confused." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 55%

Man of Steel (2013)

"Man of Steel is the movie of the summer. It's the Superman movie we deserve. And it's about time." Washington Free Beacon

The Purge (2013)

"The Purge offers mediocre thrills wrapped in absurd rhetoric." Washington Free Beacon

Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

"As long as 'let it go, bro' is your mantra, you'll have a fine time at Fast and Furious 6." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 86%

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

"Star Trek Into Darkness is a high octane but messily plotted romp, with solid performances papering over plot holes you could pilot a galaxy-class starship through." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 48%

The Great Gatsby (2013)

"There's something dispiriting about a filmmaker who does his best to be utterly faithful to the words on the page, but doesn't seem to recognize what those words mean." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5 79%

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"The Iron Man films are so much better when Iron Man isn't onscreen." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 49%

Pain & Gain (2013)

"Not for the kiddies, this immensely entertaining flick is a hard-R romp through seedy South Florida." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 53%

Oblivion (2013)

"Complaints about plausibility, logic, or common sense aside, Oblivion looks great." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 94%

Room 237 (2013)

"Room 237 isn't about The Shining or the Holocaust or the slaughter of Native Americans or the moon landing. It's about people finding order in chaos." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 68%

Trance (2013)

"Trance is your biennial reminder that Danny Boyle is one of our greatest living directors." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 61%

Evil Dead (2013)

"This Evil Dead remake is more 'blah' than 'boo.'" Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 29%

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)

"Retaliation takes itself about as seriously as it should. Which is to say, not very. The dialogue is light and breezy, filled with jokes and sarcastic asides." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 78%

Murph: The Protector (2013)

"The story of Lt. Michael P. Murphy's life doesn't need to be hyped, and Murph: The Protector does a good job of staying out of its way." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 67%

Spring Breakers (2013)

"Spring Breakers is titillating and absurd and vulgar and, perhaps most importantly, entertaining." Washington Free Beacon
