22 Jump Street (2014)
"The best thing about Maleficent is the actress playing the titular character. Angelina Jolie is captivating, funny, grounded yet appropriately theatrical, and entirely appealing as the dark and misunderstood fairy. "
The Two Faces of January (2014)
Million Dollar Arm (2014)
"There's no denying the feel good vibes of a well-crafted athletic drama... But the story of two Indian strong arms shipped from Mumbai to Major League Baseball training camp veers dangerously close to the all-too-common savior narrative."
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Trouble with the Curve (2012)
The Double (2014)
"Resting on the laurels of its namesake, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return suffers from lackluster storytelling, TV-quality animation and haphazard music, all of which don't hold a candle to the many Oz tales that have come before it."
The Rookie (2002)
Stage Fright (2014)
"Horror movies can get away with inconsequential plot details. Musicals aren't as lucky. The two can play nice, but in Stage Fright they're like two halves of a schizophrenic psychopath's inner monologue. "
They Came Together (2014)
"A film that's as funny as it is silly, twisting every cliché in the rom-com cannon to impressive effect, so much so that you'll never be able to look at a Katherine Heigl movie in the same way again."
"42 is a solid crowd-pleaser about courage, endurance, justice and tolerance, but also about love: Robinson's love for his wife, the bromance between Robinson and Rickey, and their love for the game of baseball."
Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)
Son of Batman (2014)
"Son of Batman, the 20th DC Universe Animated Original Movie, makes considerable alterations to the original Grant Morrison comic book tale, but still delivers plenty of entertainment value for Bat-fans."
Walk Of Shame (2014)
Battlefield Earth (2000)
Brick Mansions (2014)
Fading Gigolo (2014)
A Haunted House 2 (2014)
"A Haunted House 2 occasionally tries to be a legitimate horror movie, but just like the comedy, it doesn't really work. Basically, this means you'll be hit with extremely generic jump scares every now and then."
The Quiet Ones (2014)
Hateship Loveship (2014)
Draft Day (2014)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Rio 2 (2014)
Poseidon Rex (2014)
"Sabotage is far more effective than its action-centric trailers have suggested, with the film more a mystery-thriller that actually offers Arnold Schwarzenegger and the cool ensemble a chance to act and not just shoot guns."
Free to Play (2014)
Blood Ties (2014)
"Visually a throwback to the era of Sidney Lumet's NYC crime dramas of the 1970s, the slow-moving Blood Ties features fine performances from Clive Owen and Billy Crudup, but wastes Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis."
Rob the Mob (2014)
Starred Up (2014)
Patrick: Evil Awakens (2014)
"Patrick: Evil Awakens is an entirely forgettable horror flick that lets the great talent involved go to waste. There are certainly more entertaining low-budget horror offerings that you can waste an evening on."
"If you're willing to go with that - an affectionate character study of a bloke in a massive papier mache head - you'll find Frank to be a richly rewarding film, and the title character to be one you can't help but fall in love with."
Need For Speed (2014)
Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
Bad Words (2014)
Under the Skin (2014)
"In refusing to spoon-feed the audience information, Glazer's film instead burrows into the brain, the ambiguous nature of proceedings making it all-the-more beguiling. The result is a film that's hard to shake after the credits have rolled. "
Journey To The West (2014)
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
