Focus (2015)

"The best thing about Focus, as with any successful caper flick, is that you are never quite certain when the con is on and when it's off." Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 74%

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

"Kingsman's deft blend of comedy and combat render it an early contender for best action film of the year." Washington Free Beacon

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

"The most disappointing aspect of Jupiter Ascending is, surprisingly, its action sequences." Washington Free Beacon

Leviathan (2014)

"This is a tale of vodka-fueled dysfunction, of the meaninglessness of a life in which fairness and freedom are little more than easily ignored words." Washington Free Beacon

Blackhat (2015)

"Mann's preference for digital film is not well served by some of Blackhat's more frenetic sequences." Washington Free Beacon

Inherent Vice (2015)

"Inherent Vice is a bizarre, almost dreamlike, movie, one that makes sense from moment to moment but falls apart the second you try to tie it all together." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 59%

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

"For nearly 2.5 interminable hours, The Battle of the Five Armies throws waves of computer-generated elves and computer-generated dwarves against computer-generated orcs." Washington Free Beacon

The Imitation Game (2014)

"Weapons-grade Oscar-bait designed to earn months of plaudits before being promptly forgotten." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016

Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

"Exodus is rarely boring, but it lacks gravitas compared to its predecessors." Washington Free Beacon

Wild (2014)

"Reese Witherspoon makes a strong case for the best actress Oscar." Washington Free Beacon

Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

"If you want to define Hollywood mediocrity, it might look something like this: competently shot and executed, but utterly lacking in soul or verve or originality." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 94%

Whiplash (2014)

"It's about the social utility of sociopathy, about the refusal to fret over self-esteem or hurt feelings or mental or physical pain in the pursuit of greatness." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 95%

Nightcrawler (2014)

"What's fascinating about this movie is the way in which writer/director Dan Gilroy treats Bloom. He's framed as a regular cinematic hero rather than a devious anti-hero." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 29%

Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

"A surprisingly funny film that lands just enough jokes not to desecrate its predecessor. Sometimes the soft bigotry of low expectations is a blessing, not a curse." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 71%

Interstellar (2014)

"Interstellar never feels overly long despite its almost three hour running time. It also packs an emotional wallop, if you let it." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 91%

Birdman (2014)

"The refusal of the camera to cut from scene to scene despite the film taking place over days of rehearsal and performances lends the proceedings a dream-like quality. " Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 85%

John Wick (2014)

"John Wick is the platonic ideal of a disposable action movie. It gives you everything you want, nothing you don't, and gets you in and out of the theater." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 77%

Fury (2014)

"Fury is a well crafted, incredibly taut war film, one that sets aside the Great Man Theory of war and instead focuses on war-fighting men." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 63%

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014)

"If you have three-plus hours to spare, you'll find good company. McAvoy and Chastain are great, plumbing the emotional depths of their characters' broken marriage." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 88%

Gone Girl (2014)

"The latest effort by director David Fincher to suss out the meaning of modern American life." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016

The Equalizer (2014)

"The perfect marriage of generic material and a huge star." Washington Free Beacon

Tusk (2014)

The Drop (2014)

"A puppy upstages James Gandolfini in his final film." Washington Free Beacon

The Trip To Italy (2014)

" Given the excellence of Coogan and Brydon's back and forth, the generally lame nature of The Trip to Italy is all the more disappointing." Washington Free Beacon

3/4 43%

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn't for the weak-kneed. It's a punch to the gut, a cigarette burn on the soul." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 32%

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"Is The Expendables 3 any good? In its own way, I suppose. It's occasionally quite fun, though the final action sequence is oppressively long and a bit monotonous." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 89%

Calvary (2014)

"Calvary is both darkly comic and deeply sad. And it's well worth 10 of your dollars and 100 minutes of your time." Washington Free Beacon

4/4 91%

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"Action-filled and funny, Guardians of the Galaxy stakes a late claim for the summer's best film." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016

A Most Wanted Man (2014)

"A Most Wanted Man is a rare feature: a relatively smart take on the war on terror that doesn't devolve into ideological score settling." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 56%

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"Progressive allegory so stupid it comes across as conservative parody." Washington Free Beacon

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"Director Matt Reeves has an eye for striking imagery." Washington Free Beacon

Snowpiercer (2014)

"The film's something of a mess, trading swerve and style for cohesion and coherence. No matter: Nothing else at the multiplex right now is half as entertaining." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 18%

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

"On the one hand, Transformers: Age of Extinction is barely coherent, narratively disastrous, and oppressively long. On the other: Optimus Prime riding a dinosaur robot!" Washington Free Beacon

22 Jump Street (2014)

"The mere fact that the filmmakers are aware that they're playing the role of a wholly unoriginal cog in the corporate machine does not really excuse their unoriginality." Washington Free Beacon

3/4 91%

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"A better video game movie than any movie based on a video game." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 50%

Maleficent (2014)

"Jolie is perfectly suited for the role, letting everyone know with her eyes when she's just funnin' and when she's actually angry." Washington Free Beacon

Locke (2014)

"It's an audacious picture, perhaps a bit gimmicky-but undeniably quite good, and possibly even great." Washington Free Beacon

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"X-Men: Days of Future Past is, on its own, a fine film, funny in all the right places, impressively acted, and rousing in its action." Washington Free Beacon

Godzilla (2014)

"Big lizard, big budget, big fun." Washington Free Beacon

Neighbors (2014)

"Rose Byrne, sporting her natural Australian accent, delights as Kelly. Between this and Bridesmaids, she has shown that she's as funny as any actress working today." Washington Free Beacon

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"The problem with Marc Webb's reboot of Spider-Man can be boiled down to one word: scale." Washington Free Beacon

The Other Woman (2014)

"Kate Upton busts out in buoyant debut turn." Washington Free Beacon

Transcendence (2014)

"Transcendence's intellectual reach exceeds its grasp." Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 85%

Under the Skin (2014)

"Repetitive but creepy sci-fi horror flick likely to get under your skin." Washington Free Beacon

Dom Hemingway (2014)

"An angry and noisy romp that left this reviewer feeling cold." Washington Free Beacon

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"Marvel has made what amounts to the biggest-budgeted paranoid thriller of all time." Washington Free Beacon

Noah (2014)

"Gruff and gentle, skilled with a blade and tormented by his visions, Russell Crowe proves yet again that no one anchors an epic as well as he." Washington Free Beacon

Bad Words (2014)

"Bateman has cornered the market on ornery average dudes with rapier wits." Washington Free Beacon

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

"There's a slightly darker edge to The Grand Budapest Hotel than Anderson's previous efforts." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 43%

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Eva Green delights as the cunning Artemesia, so dominating every scene she's in that Empire almost feels as if it is her story rather than a tale of Greek freedom." Washington Free Beacon
