The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

6.0

2015 | Adventure | Animation | Comedy

Essentially a kid-friendly stoner comedy, but also one that’s clever and inspired enough to keep SpongeBob fans entertained.

2015.02.06

Seventh Son

4.0

2014 | Adventure | Fantasy

Would be utterly forgettable, were it not for some decent directorial elements and the performances of Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.

2015.02.06

Hail, Caesar!

7.0

2016 | Drama | Comedy | Mystery

A funny and madcap, if unfocused, farcical salute to Golden Age Hollywood from the Coen Brothers.

2015.02.05

Black or White

6.0

2014 | Drama

Far from ground-breaking in its social statements, but is still a solid comedy/drama buoyed by good performances all around.

2015.01.30

Mortdecai

3.0

2015 | Adventure | Comedy

Lacks the wit and charm that would’ve been necessary for this farcical pastiche to work...

2015.01.23

Paddington

8.0

2014 | Comedy

Thanks to its playfully idiosyncratic, yet thoughtful nature, Paddington maintains the innocence and charm of the Paddington character...

2015.01.16

Big Eyes

7.0

2014 | Drama

The resulting film is one of Tim Burton's better (and more self-reflective) in recent memory.

2014.12.25

Wild

8.0

2014 | Drama

More than a showcase for Reese Witherspoon’s performance, it’s a meditative journey that is refreshingly funny, insightful, and poignant.

2014.12.19

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

6.0

2014 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

It’s worth taking that final trip to his Middle-earth.

2014.12.17

The Theory of Everything

8.0

2014 | Drama | Love

Well-acted and often moving, Theory of Everything is ultimately an insightful love story that just happens to be about Stephen Hawking.

2014.11.26

The Penguins of Madagascar

6.0

2008 | Animation | Comedy

There’s enough kid-friendly wit and non-stop humor to justify Penguins of Madagascar‘s existence.

2014.11.26

Whiplash

7.0

2014 | Drama

A tense (but somewhat hollow) psycho-thriller that features a ferocious performance to remember from J.K. Simmons...

2014.11.14

Rosewater

6.0

2014 | Drama

Emotionally sincere and thoughtful, but Jon Stewart’s movie also very much feels like a first-time director’s work.

2014.11.14

Laggies

5.0

2014 | Comedy | Love

A decent coming of adult age dramedy that (like its protagonist) is a bit too directionless.

2014.11.07

Nightcrawler

8.0

2014 | Drama | Suspense | Crime

An effective neo-noir thriller that provides insightful (though troubling) social commentary on the side.

2014.10.31

Dear White People

8.0

2014 | Drama | Comedy

A strong debut for a newcomer director, who tackles sensitive racial and cultural topics with wit, sensitivity, and thoughtful commentary.

2014.10.26

St. Vincent

7.0

2014 | Comedy

Thanks to Bill Murray’s performance, it’s still a pleasant and funny viewing experience.

2014.10.24

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

5.0

2014 | Comedy

Ultimately proves to be an affable (and refreshingly brisk) piece of family-friendly entertainment.

2014.10.10

The Boxtrolls

7.0

2014 | Fantasy | Animation | Comedy

Another visually-inventive, witty, and energetic fairy tale adventure to add to Laika’s mantlepiece.

2014.09.26

Tusk

4.0

2014 | Horror | Comedy

Has a memorably weird premise, sure, but Kevin Smith’s Tusk generally fails to be either that funny and/or scary… much less interesting.

2014.09.19

The Drop

7.0

2014 | Drama | Crime

Ultimately a solid mood piece, with strong performances that help elevate it above its derivative story elements.

2014.09.12

If I Stay

6.0

2014 | Drama

It's blend of teen romance and supernatural melodrama doesn’t break the YA mold, but it’s a decent addition to the genre nonetheless.

2014.08.22

The Expendables 3

5.0

2014 | Adventure | Action | Suspense

Offers its share of old-school action thrills and fun, yet it has the same problems as its predecessors – and then some.

2014.08.15

The Hundred-Foot Journey

6.0

2014 | Drama

A by the numbers, yet charming, handsome, and well-acted dramedy that the whole family can enjoy.
