Beverly Hills Cop III (1994)
"Eddie Murphy needs to shoot off his mouth. It's his best weapon, and the one that's unique to his arsenal. When a movie mostly requires him to shoot off a gun he becomes just another action star, and another talent wasted in lazily miscalculated material."
My Cousin Vinny (1992)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
"Douglas, with Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct behind him, knows all about playing male victimization without total loss of amour propre. Moore's ferocity is totally unredeemed, therefore totally riveting."
"Its ostensibly canny match of star and subject assures that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves will fill theaters. But will it send moviegoers out enthralled? The message from this cracked crystal ball is: Naaah."
For No Good Reason (2014)
"The salient, liveliest parts of For No Good Reason - the title comes from Thompson's reply when Steadman once asked him, "Why are we doing this?" - are to be found in the artist's display of his work and recollections of the eccentrics he met."
Spirited Away (2001)
The Elephant Man (1980)
Rio 2 (2014)
"Even when it's coarse and calculating, this is an eager entertainment machine that will keep the kids satisfied. Just don't tell them that the Rio movies are musical comedies about an avian genocide."
8 Mile (2002)
Under the Skin (2014)
"The Winter Soldier is no labored treatise on political science; it fulfills all the expectations of a Marvel movie. But this time the danger doesn't emanate from a fantasy villain like Neutron or an imaginary realm like Asgard."
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Far From Heaven (2003)
Robin and Marian (1976)
"Aronofsky brings wild ambition and thrilling artistry to one of the Old Testament's best-known, most dramatic, least plausible stories... with Russell Crowe infusing the role of God's first seaman and zookeeper with all his surly majesty."
Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)
Jodorowsky's Dune (2014)
Need For Speed (2014)
Double Indemnity (1944)
The Big Sleep (1946)
The Wind Rises (2014)
Endless Love (1981)
"The film should not come as a complete surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to Allen's doings lately. This is the movie that Annie Hall hinted at and to which last year's Interiors, flawed as it was, seems to have served as a necessary prelude."
About a Boy (2002)
The Lady Eve (1941)
What's Up, Doc? (1972)
The Great Escape (1963)
The Monuments Men (2014)
"Rather than juicing each element to blockbuster volume, Clooney has delivered it in the tone of a memorial lecture, warm and ambling, given by one of the distinguished academics he put in his movie."
The LEGO Movie (2014)
"Take the kids to The LEGO Movie - the funniest, cleverest, most exhaustingly exhilarating animated feature in ages - then leave them to play with their toys and see it again for your own wicked amusement."
Labor Day (2014)
American Beauty (1999)
"Anyone who followed the '08 and '12 elections will not be surprised by how Mitt's story plays out. But it's an interesting footnote, a spin-free picture of the personal cost of campaigning; I found it humanly sympathetic regardless of political sympathies."
Heaven Can Wait (1978)
"[The film] has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching (but PG) romance."
Stranger by the Lake (2014)
"Its major sin -- a certain ineluctable improbability -- is pretty much offset by the moments of winsome humanity Gibson finds for his freebooter; by the rich, nicely tuned portrayals of the other actors; and by director Ron Howard."
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
Ride Along (2014)
