Film School Rejects
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
Le Week-End (2014)
"At turns charming and subtly complex, Le Week-End is no grand affair to remember, but it's a fine enough showcase for two winning talents and the sort of mature take on romance we don't see nearly often enough."
A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)
"A Walk Among the Tombstones does a fantastic job introducing its capable and engaging main character, but it bungles the execution of the film's narrative as time is spent with unnecessary subplots and supporting characters that add nothing to the tale."
Obvious Child (2014)
Dear White People (2014)
A Most Wanted Man (2014)
"A Most Wanted Man is exactly what you'd expect from the director of The American, and while that assessment will mean different things to different people the film remains a meticulously crafted adaptation of John le Carre's bestselling novel."
"Oculus is well-acted, looks quite good, and manages some moments of entertainment, but as the minutes tick by it grows weaker and weaker until its final cheat designed to allow for a shocker ending."
The Guest (2014)
Under the Skin (2014)
Jodorowsky's Dune (2014)
We Are the Best! (2014)
"Watching We Are the Best! is a genuinely positive experience, one that leaves you smiling inside and out even days later as you think back not only on scenes from the film but also to memories of your own life."
Love Is Strange (2014)
The Imitation Game (2014)
Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)
"Ridley Scott and his quartet of screenwriters hint at a handful of ideas deserving of exploration, but none of them survive the frogs, locusts, crocodiles and other plagues - the most devastating of which is excessive and unimpressive CGI."
"The final installment of Peter Jackson's trilogy adapting J.R.R. Tolkien's novel, and while it's neither the best nor the worst of the three films it brings the story to a satisfying conclusion. Mostly because it is a conclusion, but still."
Gone Girl (2014)
"It feels like you're eating at a Michelin three starred restaurant where the service is impeccable, the ambiance is immaculate but the chef forgot to season the food. Yet as an examination of the insidious nature of public discourse, it's remarkable."
The LEGO Movie (2014)
The Babadook (2014)
Into the Woods (2014)
American Sniper (2015)
Beside Still Waters (2014)
In Bruges (2008)
Love & Mercy (2015)
How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
"Everything from the angle of the shot to the speed of the editing projects an end visual that feels like you're either on Toothless' back or you get an outsider perspective of just how fast he's flying."
Dying of the Light (2014)
Reach Me (2014)
"Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour's feature debut is a gorgeously-photographed and highly unconventional vampire tale about the willful ignorance sometimes required to see the best in the people we suck on and sometimes even love."
V/H/S: Viral (2014)
The Brass Teapot (2013)
"The energetic lead performances bring some smiles for fans of Angarano and Temple. The story is less successful though as aside from its unique premise it has very little to offer thanks to its very familiar moral."
"A film so delightfully creative, vibrant and yes, a little dark that it once again proves that Mr. Selick is a rare creature in the world of filmmaking, that rare kind of filmmaker whose creativity and vision knows no bounds."
Big Eyes (2014)
The Gambler (2014)
A Most Violent Year (2015)
21 Years: Richard Linklater (2014)
The Better Angels (2014)
