I Origins (2014)
I Origins challenges too little and ties up things too neatly for it to register as anything more than well-made, well-intentioned hogwash.

Watching the zippy, ebullient Guardians of the Galaxy, you wonder "Why can't all comic-book movies be this much fun?"

Boyhood (2014)
Boyhood understands the tumult of childhood and adolescence as well as it does the hurdles and satisfaction of raising children.

A Most Wanted Man has a veracity most spy thrillers lack, and the suspense is of the intellectual, not visceral, kind.

Despite its thriller veneer, A Wolf at the Door is more of an examination of adultery and its consequences, both on the married couple and the outsider who comes between them.

Life Itself (2014)
Life Itself reminds you how unpredictable Ebert's tastes: He loved Benji the Hunted and tore Scarface and Blue Velvet apart.

Watching an army of apes riding horses heading into battle is undeniably cool, but that's the only thing the movie gives you: Neat eye candy.

Snowpiercer (2014)
In the thick of summer, while Hollywood is busy cranking out cookie-cutter superhero movies and giant robot sequels, along comes Snowpiercer to show everyone how it's done.

To say that Age of Extinction is the best installment in the money-minting Transformers franchise is like saying the best episode of The Love Boat was the one that had Charo in it: The praise is so faint, it's close to meaningless.

The Rover (2014)
The Rover is so intentionally vague and shapeless, it doesn't leave much of an imprint other than Pattinson's odd, melancholy performance.

Palo Alto (2014)
A pale imitation of the early novels of Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote about young ennui and aimlessness from the inside out.

A swift, dark and nasty horror comedy that occasionally dances into territory deemed taboo by American filmmakers.

The Signal (2014)
The Signal is too ambitious for its own good, but it is still a pleasure to watch.

There's something going on at the edges of the frame in practically every scene of 22 Jump Street, a testament to the care and attention to detail directors Lord and Miller bring to this potentially silly material.

The Dance of Reality, which deserves a place alongside Amarcord as a fantastical take on coming of age, is the work of a wise and experienced old soul with the passion and curiosity of a young man.

Night Moves (2014)
In Night Moves, Reichardt keeps her characters close and up front, so when differences arise in their ranks and signs of vague trouble arise, the suspense starts to mount.

Why do invading extra-terrestrials always bring with them the single thing that can wipe them out? Couldn't they have hid it on Jupiter or something?

There are enough laughs scattered throughout A Million Ways to Die in the West that while you're watching it, the movie seems like a passable comedy. By the time you get home, though, you can barely remember the jokes.

Maleficent (2014)
In a movie crammed with special effects, Jolie is the most startling and wondrous of all.

Heli (2014)
A depiction of how violence and corruption, when left unchecked, taints saints and sinners alike, sparing no one.

The Immigrant is the fourth collaboration between Gray and Phoenix, and it's their most fruitful to date.

God's Pocket (2014)

Godzilla (2014)
In Godzilla, director Gareth Edwards sets out to revive something that has practically disappeared from big-budget Hollywood spectacles: A sense of awe.

Neighbors (2014)
Neighbors is rude, brazen and merrily offensive, and the movie mines the homoerotic undertones of fraternities to fine (if lowbrow) comic effect. But Efron, of all people, gives the film a curious edge.

Jodorowsky's Dune gives you a good sense of what might have been, and judging by what we see, the picture might have accomplished what the director ultimately intended: "To mutate young minds."

The focus of the film may be the deadly dangers of illegal border crossings, but its true subject is ordinary people and the things they'll do for the ones they love.

Dom Hemingway is often viciously funny, and every time you think the movie has run out of steam, Shepard spins things in a new direction, keeping the energy from flagging (including one of the most startling car crashes I've ever seen in a film).

Aside from a few scenes where he's walking around in a suit, Depp could have shot in his living room while instant-messaging his agent about the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Joe (2014)
Cage surprises you with his portrayal of a man who doesn't care whether the world likes him but discovers he's capable of taking an interest in someone who desperately needs help but can't bring himself to ask.

Oculus (2014)
As Oculus builds toward its gruesome (but not unexpected) finale, the characters get lost in a series of hallucinations and flashbacks that don't amount to much other than eat up screen time.
