The Babadook (2014)
Throw in a few fresh images, great performances and enough creepy audio to have you fearing those dark corners again, and you have one entertaining and frightening experience in store.

This film deserves to be seen as a major breakthrough for Jenny Slate who commands the kind of humor and honesty that stars possess.

Boyhood (2014)
It seems appropriate that Boyhood was always in the background, charting its filmmaker's growth from Tape to Before Midnight. As Mason grew, so did the man who kept returning to his story.

Calvary (2014)
It's a film that works almost like a sermon: It lost me at points along the way but hit me like a ton of bricks in its conclusion. On the way home and in the days that passed, I've only come to admire it even more.

Falls into single-girl-in-the-city clichés a few too many times for my tastes, but heralds the arrival of someone who seems likely to do impressive things.

Bigger, brasher, bloodier, and with more bowels, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is a blast.

It is often playful, strange, and unexpected. And it is defiant in its refusal to allow you to judge Joe. Is she good or bad? Stop asking the question.

4/5
It is rare to see a film as tonally balanced as The Skeleton Twins. It is both a tearjerker and a crowdpleaser, often in the same scene.

Just by being truthful and honest with its subjects, Cynthia Hill's film feels like a call to action. Listen to it.

Cold in July (2014)
Any issues with the actual narrative fall away when one considers the risk-taking here. We need more risk-takers in horror and I can't wait to see what he does next.

Locke (2014)
Hardy takes an incredibly difficult assignment in that he's the only face seen for 85 minutes, but he gets so deep under the skin of this complex character that he elevates a script that can sometimes feel like a narrative cheat.

3.5/4
Braff's heart is very much 'in it' as Natalie Portman's Sam would say, and while his character fantasizes about science fiction role-playing, the complete storyteller is looking for the reality in our everyday fictions and how it applies to all of us.

After screening The Crash Reel, you will never, ever again delight in televised images of skiers and snowboarders wiping out on the slopes. Guaranteed.

None of the French talent involved seemed to recall that the Vietnam conflict had its roots in the French military occupation of Indochina. Obviously, there was more than a little amnesia on the road from Dien Bien Phu to the Cannes screening rooms.

1.5/5
The screenplay dilutes the book's emotional maelstrom into a tepid swirl of soapy melodrama that is often too predictable for comfort.

Excessively sentimental, but still entertaining thanks to the unusual chemistry between the stars.

Despite the film's wishful advocacy that Cooper was a modern-day outlaw, he comes across as a disorganized nut that screwed up his life.

Although the film covers territory that is too familiar to many people, it still manages to resonate with a sense of dread and sorrow over the unprecedented tragedy of that horrible day.

The landmark Italian silent epic is still a highly effective production.
