Still Alice (2015)
"A decent film that's emotionally raw, worth seeing if only to see how one of the masters of her craft single-handedly manages to rescue (along with the help of her castmates) a film from being a maudlin mess into a watchable, moving piece of cinema."
Inherent Vice (2015)
"Like waves in the ocean, you have to let this stuff flow over you, man. The film is fuzzy. It's not going to give all it can give on first watch, and for many that will be annoying as hell....One of the best films of the year"
Into the Woods (2014)
Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)
""Exodus" may not be the best thing in theatres, but it's decent enough to make it worth your time. It's less dreary and pointless than "Prometheus," for one, and showcases...some of the fun and splendour that Scott has occasionally shown"
"I'm not here to mock "Mockingjay Part 1," and can state with confidence that it can only go up from here, (yet) this entire exercise seems merely a hurdle that must be jumped in order to move onto the conclusion."
Big Hero 6 (2014)
The Book of Life (2014)
"It's hard to hit that sweet spot, where a kid's film can feel like it has real moments of jeopardy to sate an adult audience without terrifying the younger viewers, and I'm not quite sure the film pulled it off."
The Double (2014)
"This is a smart and sophisticated film to be sure, and its craft has much to applaud, but it's the way that the film is never burdened with an overabundance of dreariness or ennui that helps make it the success that it is."
" For all those that complain they don't make them like they used to, I recommend you get to the biggest screen you can find, buy copious amounts of popcorn, and enjoy this slice of summer movie-going fun."
The Captive (2014)
"This is a bit of a lull for this director, and while he continues to explore notions surrounding the loss of a child (a theme consistent with several of his works), it's hard to see that "The Captive" does much to add to his cachet."
The Raid 2 (2014)
Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014)
"With echoes to his earlier works, an extremely dark sense of humour, and a surprisingly endearing look at his tortured characters, this is most definitely a film worth seeing for those willing to brave the subject matter."
Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)
