Welcome To Happiness (2016)
"As with many feel-good comedy-dramas, Welcome to Happiness has quite a few dark moments, but then, Oliver Thompson shows himself to be the guy to watch for future fantasies of the Wes Anderson type. "

Septic Man (2014)
Among Ravens (2014)
Giuseppe Makes A Movie (2014)
Earth to Echo (2014)

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
Burt's Buzz (2014)
"If there was a film school class about burying the lede, it would be difficult to think of a more fitting example than this aimless doc, which gets to its most essential questions only an hour into its running time or leaves them entirely unasked. "
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
Half of a Yellow Sun (2014)
"When you've got a talented visual effects artist at the helm, iconic source material, an all-star cast and a hefty studio-sized budget to back it all up, there's just no excuse to deliver such a lazy film. "
Oasis: Definitely Maybe (2004)
"An engaging if incomplete documentary overview of Oasis' debut album that imparts some interesting new slang for drugged-out intoxication ('cabbaged beyond all f-cking belief') while also confirming the Gallagher brothers' feud. "
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014)
"It's possible for a movie to confirm the innate filmmaking gifts of its helmer while still not quite succeeding as a standalone film. Such is the case with this artful yet frustrating coming-of-age drama, which values tone over incident. "
Cesar Chavez (2014)
"It's finally time for 'The Hunger Games' to make some room because the quality of 'Divergent' justifies all of the hype and gives the film a solid shot at becoming a successful franchise-starter, too. "
Jodorowsky's Dune (2014)
"Any film about the global financial crisis that fails to consider subsidized risk, the illegality of credit default swaps, echo-chamber thinking and the like is irresponsible at best and deleterious at worst. And that's Hank. "
