Quantum of Solace (2008)
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
"The film has enough charm and humor to keep it appealing to a wide audience, and dumbing things down doesn't feel particularly smart or canny, and proves to be a minor distraction to an otherwise majorly entertaining feature."
A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)
The Guest (2014)
The LEGO Movie (2014)
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Gone Girl (2014)
The Boxtrolls (2014)
""The Boxtrolls" is a swing-and-miss for Laika; when you move forward with revolutionary techniques while standing still in terms of your themes, stories and settings, no amount of technical trickery or animation genius can bring the boring to vivid life. "
Two Night Stand (2014)
" Charming but contrived, more slapdash than sexy and more interested in late-act reversals than real-life relationships, "Two Night Stand" isn't really going to scratch anyone's itchy spots, no matter how far it's willing to go in trying to do so."
Jimi: All Is by My Side (2014)
"If you're expecting all of Hendrix's familiar numbers, you'll be disappointed, but you're interested in the human being who made those hits, you'll find your sense of the new rewarded even as your sense of the familiar is let down."
This Is Where I Leave You (2014)
The Judge (2014)
The Identical (2014)
"The music-heavy second half doesn't zip with much pizzazz, and even the film's many dips into song-and-dance fail to keep it moving along with anything resembling style. By its third act, things have flatlined."
"In a time when the desire for 'strong' female characters on-screen can often create perfect-but-plain parts for actresses to play, seeing a complicated female character on-screen here is even better."
"The easy joke is that while many are touting "Birdman" for Best Picture, it's undoubtedly the front-runner for Most Picture. This is not a film in need of creativity, passion or energy; what it needed was restraint, consideration and direction."
The Imitation Game (2014)
To Be Takei (2014)
The Expendables 3 (2014)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Magic in the Moonlight (2014)
Earth to Echo (2014)
Jersey Boys (2014)
22 Jump Street (2014)
"It'd be easy to dismiss Edge of Tomorrow as just another blunt-force summer movie, but it's sharp as a scalpel in the deft hands of its makers, with the kind of smarts, wit, filmmaking and force too many other summer films can only dream of."
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
"It's a brilliant gameplan for a studio: Manipulate time and space to make the X-Men movies infinitely re-bootable, infinitely re-castable and assuredly profitable, until it sounds like, and is, a kind of prayer: Forever and ever, X-Men."
The Rover (2014)
Lost River (2015)
Maps to the Stars (2015)
The Homesman (2014)
Saint Laurent (2015)
""Godzilla" has technical prowess and computing power that the early efforts could only dream of; but by upping the effects without paying attention to the affect, "Godzilla" gains majesty and loses meaning."
Walk Of Shame (2014)
The Quiet Ones (2014)
" "The Quiet Ones" is rated PG-13, but it's scarier than R-rated gorefests, like "Proxy," "Nurse 3D," and "American Mary." Anyone can create disgust; creating slowly-building disquiet is entirely another proposition."
A Haunted House 2 (2014)
Draft Day (2014)
Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014)
