3.5/5
The Interview may be caught up in turmoil -- considering how smart it is about how dumb we can be when pop culture meets politics, that's pretty funny -- but it's also a funny, risky and well-done comedy far ahead of most of its studio peers.

Big Eyes (2014)
ig Eyes is more melodrama than drama, more comedy of manners than cultural critique -- and yet its wide-eyed candy-colored exterior holds fascinating and funny depths behind its glassy stare.

Unbroken (2014)
Unbroken may be as imperfect as it is impassioned, but it also precisely knows what story it wants to tell you, and how.

This film, like this franchise, was never going to be great ---- but if you can get into its gee-whiz vibe and its mix of stonefaced deadpans and serious slapstick, you're in for a movie you will appreciate and your kids will love.

Annie (2014)
This Annie isn't a movie; it's a series of bits and blobs and smiles and sights, designed to be viewed in GIF form on a Tumblr page that recounts its highlights.

4/5
So, yes, if you watch inherent Vice as a whodunnit, you'll be disappointed -- but if you watch not as a whodunnit but rather as a whahappened, it's a film that's both funny and freaky, a pitch-perfect portrait of a time that never was.

3.5/5
The Penguins of Madagascar doesn't have the high points of other animated films, they can't match it in one specific area: Sheer, chaotic comedy craziness right out of the classic old-school whack-with-a-frying-pan animation playbook.

Foxcatcher (2014)
Foxcatcher crystallizes Miller's technique and concerns the way a dip in the temperature turns free-flowing water into hard-edged ice, as great performances and skillful technique transform history and tragedy into strong, striking art.

Thrilling, heartfelt, and a terrific curtain-raiser for the final battle, Mockingjay Part 1 takes the Hunger Games series to new heights even as it sings in its own voice.

St. Vincent (2014)
St. Vincent is the kind of movie that actually ends with a scene where Bill Murray essentially receives a on-screen standing ovation for being Bill Murray.

Big Hero 6 (2014)
Your kids will love it. And frankly, they should: Big Hero 6 is zippy, beautifully made, fraught with action and peril but never scary or bloody and features a vocal team of actors so smooth and polished it verges on the criminal.

Nightcrawler (2014)
This smart thriller-drama has dark gravity and a sharp-toothed smile, with Jake Gyllenhaal giving one of 2014's best performances in an economic horror film that oozes through the L.A. night.

The Book of Life may be crowded, bumptious, messy and overly ambitious, and yet it's unique and excitingly fresh when it succeeds, with a good heart behind its mustaches, magic and madness.

A termite-art thriller that burrows in and stays with you, A Walk Among the Tombstones is a story about murder that makes you truly think about life.

While the gathering of the family to mourn the father may be a familiar playbook, Levy's assembled a team who can run it with grace, style and good humor.

When the Game Stands Tall is an incomplete pass of a Sports-piration film.

Brutal, boneheaded and boring, a glass-bottom boat ride through the sewer of writer-creator Frank Miller's fetishes, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For truly stands on its own clumsy, over-shot feet as potentially the worst film of 2014.

The kind of filmmaking that makes you imagine a Red Bull can in an Ed Hardy shirt being struck by lightning and ascending to the director's chair.

Moebius (2014)

Hoffman immerses himself in the character the way he usually did, giving Gunther Bachmann a tragic streak of frustration and righteousness

4.5/5
A spot-on takedown of rom-com cliches ... scathingly satirical ... one of the funniest movies of the year.
