Black Sea (2015)
12 Years a Slave (2013)
"Easily the most powerful, compelling, devastating, and just plain blunt film about slavery ever made, Steve McQueen's adaptation of Solomon Northup's 1853 memoir, 12 Years a Slave is a raw and searing indictment."
Into the Woods (2014)
Big Eyes (2014)
"The wild true story behind the movie is so bizarre that it is impossible for the movie not to grab one's attention, and Burton isn't content to coast on the premise alone. Still, it feels smug and heavy-handed."
Inherent Vice (2015)
Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)
Dumb and Dumber To (2014)
John Wick (2014)
Big Hero 6 (2014)
"Big Hero 6, based on the comic book series of the same name lacks personality, a heartfelt story or even decent laughs. It's not a terrible movie by any means, but neither is it very good. It's just kind of there."
"Unfortunately, the long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill doesn't prove to be worth the wait. Whereas the first film was kitschy, ambitious schlock, its sequel is a monotonous, shallow, parody of its predecessor."

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
"It's a rare sequel - animated or otherwise - that expands the story of its predecessor without rehashing it, and an even rarer family-oriented film that manages to be fun and mature without being condescending to its audience. [It] does both."
The Rover (2014)
"There's a lack of articulation in [Michod's] story that there's little in the way of a theme to make The Rover compelling. That's frustrating, because a movie this nihilistic and driven should be about something."
Deliver Us from Evil (2014)
Jersey Boys (2014)
"Some of [characters'] recklessness is so reminiscent of imbecilic television personalities that, by the end of the film's 2 hour 15 minute runtime, they can get a bit grating, which is enhanced by a story that gets progressively heavy-handed as it goes on"
22 Jump Street (2014)
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
"Ambitious and epic in scale and intimate in execution, X-Men: Days of Future Past seal[s] the deal on the slow-burn comeback started by clever prequel X-Men: First Class and pulpy spin-off The Wolverine."
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
"Liman takes the movie's "Groundhog Day meets Independence Day" premise (adapted from Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel All You Need is Kill) and runs with it a way that makes it more compelling than it theoretically should be."
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
