Welcome to Me (2015)
Danny Collins (2015)
"While the plot sounds like an old familiar tune (dissipated artist changes his wicked ways when he realizes that love of family/friends is worth more than fame/fortune), it's Danny's dazzle that intoxicates. "
The Age of Adaline (2015)
The Harvest (2015)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
House of Cards: Season 3 (TV, 2015)
"In the Season 2 opener, Frank threw Mara under the train. In the Season 3 opener, Frank urinated on his father's headstone. Now there's a piss-poor encore - and yet, a perfect harbinger of the dilution to come. "
Groundhog Day (1993)
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
"Many Wes Anderson films have been intricately laced together, the ingredients blending just so. But nothing matches this perfectly layered concoction, wrapped up in an impeccable confectioner's bow. "
The Wedding Ringer (2015)
Transparent: Season One (TV, 2014)
"Sabotage is nothing more than an excuse for Arnold the AARPster to throw his weight around, bludgeoning us with equal parts of carnage and deathly boredom ... which is sort of like killing us twice. "
The Wind Rises (2014)
3 Days To Kill (2014)
The Monuments Men (2014)
Labor Day (2014)
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
"Inanities aside, the movie delivers suspense throughout. But between this turn and 'Star Trek,' Pine may find himself up to his neck in all sorts of re-booties. Let's hope he keeps away from Howard the Duck. "
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
American Hustle (2013)
The Wolverine (2013)
"Jackman's 126-minute scowl is a poor substitute for character. With this, his 6th tour of Logan, he could have capitalized on the 100-plus-year story arc, delivering a performance of greater depth. Certainly not less. "
Pacific Rim (2013)
The Lone Ranger (2013)
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
Zero Dark Thirty (2013)
"Among the hundreds of characterizations in film, television and books, Day-Lewis' rendition of the 16th President - transmuting the myth into a man -- just may be the definitive portrayal for the ages. "
Wreck-it Ralph (2012)
"Disney can dress it up, take it out to the arcade and plug it full of quarters ... but at the end of the cord, the film's a simple, 8-bit I-gotta-be-me story, with a dull plot and tepid characters. Game over. "
"'Flight' flies high due to Washington who rescues the film twice, as both the fictional hero and as the superb actor, etching a character awash in palpable guilt, denial and helplessness. He is Sky King, circa 2012. "
Cloud Atlas (2012)
"We should be able to come away from this film--purporting to examine the meaning of our destinies--with some sense of majesty, of message, of wonder. Yet with all the smoke and mirrors and prosthetics...we do not. "
Chasing Mavericks (2012)
"As one might assume, the surf cinematography is superb. But as a nod to the young surf king Jay Moriarty, rather than "Live Like Jay," this film comes far closer to the opposite, namely a burial at sea. "
Alex Cross (2012)
Seven Psychopaths (2012)
"Suggestive of a blisteringly good-humored Quentin Tarantino (sans the uber gore), McDonagh possesses a rare talent for ushering black comedy to a bleak end, luring his audience into laughter all along its shootapalooza way. "
Here Comes the Boom (2012)
"If Kevin James continues to make films that no longer fight his considerable talents -- such as the highly entertaining 'Boom' -- he someday might look back at such missteps as 'Zookeeper,' and laugh long and hard. "
