2.5/4 83% The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) Crudup excels as Zimbardo, casually sliding into the role of evil prison boss so subtly that we almost don't realize what's happening.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 60% Southpaw (2015) Dull tale of boxing and redemption provides actors showcase.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 81% Ant-Man (2015) Ant-Man is solid, mid-tier Marvel: nothing spectacular, but entertaining enough. Proceed accordingly.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 16% The Gallows (2015) I wouldn't want to definitively say The Gallows is the nadir of the found footage genre ... but I have to hope we're nearing rock bottom.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) I liked it more than I thought I would, though I'm still not entirely sure I, you know, liked liked it.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 89% Dope (2015) Moore is fantastic as Malcolm, bringing just the right kind of dorky fidgetiness to the role.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 71% Jurassic World (2015) Messy nostalgia trip could bring back turtleneck sweaters.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 48% San Andreas (2015) San Andreas turns horror on an unimaginable scale into light entertainment. Pass the popcorn!‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 49% Tomorrowland (2015) Wholesome adventure with a dash of agitprop for the kiddies.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Miller's commitment to things that look cool cannot be overstated. Mad Max Fury Road is a never-ending stream of such things‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 58% Maggie (2015) Maggie is beautifully shot. Hobson and director of photography Lukas Ettlin make excellent use of natural lighting to create a mood of disaster and despair.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) It's too bad Avengers: Age of Ultron lacks dramatic tension and has a more or less nonsensical plotline, because its component parts are frequently entertaining.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 93% Ex Machina (2015) Alex Garland's Ex Machina uses a compelling, well-contained story to examine society's growing anxieties, something he's made a habit of doing throughout his career.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 79% Furious 7 (2015) Furious Seven is constructed of clichés ('You do whatever you gotta do') and lines that aspire to be clichés ('There's a billion things that's wrong-but not in this moment').‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 97% It Follows (2015) This impressive throwback to 80s slasher flicks is packing houses for good reason.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 17% The Gunman (2015) Even for an action movie, The Gunman is ridiculously, almost courageously, dumb. It's also boring. So, you know, it's got that going for it.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 60% Run All Night (2015) A rather dour example of late Liam Neeson.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 33% Chappie (2015) When I say Chappie reminds me of Short Circuit 2 by way of Robocop and District 9, you have to understand that I mean it in the nicest sense possible.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 56% 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

2/4 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) The most disappointing aspect of Jupiter Ascending is, surprisingly, its action sequences.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 99% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 34% Blackhat (2015) Mann's preference for digital film is not well served by some of Blackhat's more frenetic sequences.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 74% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 90% The Imitation Game (2014) Weapons-grade Oscar-bait designed to earn months of plaudits before being promptly forgotten.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) Exodus is rarely boring, but it lacks gravitas compared to its predecessors.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 90% Wild (2014) Reese Witherspoon makes a strong case for the best actress Oscar.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 34% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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

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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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

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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 60% The Equalizer (2014) The perfect marriage of generic material and a huge star.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1/4 41% Tusk (2014) Kevin Smith has lost his mind.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 89% The Drop (2014) A puppy upstages James Gandolfini in his final film.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 85% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 42% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
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
