Poster for Wild

Wild

8

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

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

Poster for The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything

8

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

Poster for The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar

6

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

Poster for Whiplash

Whiplash

7

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

Poster for Rosewater

Rosewater

6

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

2014

Poster for Laggies

Laggies

5

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

2014

Poster for Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

8

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

Poster for Dear White People

Dear White People

8

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

Poster for St. Vincent

St. Vincent

7

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

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

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

5

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

2014

Poster for The Boxtrolls

The Boxtrolls

7

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

2014.09.26

2014

Poster for Tusk

Tusk

4

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

2014

Poster for The Drop

The Drop

7

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

Poster for If I Stay

If I Stay

6

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

2014

Poster for The Expendables 3

The Expendables 3

5

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

2014

Poster for The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Hundred-Foot Journey

6

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

2014.08.08

2014

Poster for Get on Up

Get on Up

8

Has elements of greatness, but ends up being just one step above a standard musician biopic...

2014.08.01

2014

Poster for Hercules

Hercules

5

Tongue in cheek, lunkheaded summer blockbuster entertainment...

2014.07.25

2014

Poster for Planes: Fire & Rescue

Planes: Fire & Rescue

4

A better made film than its predecessor on a technical level, but otherwise just as generic on a storytelling level.

2014.07.18

2014

Poster for Tammy

Tammy

4

Yet another effective demonstration of McCarthy’s comedic abilities – but the film is too jumbled and directionless for its own good.

2014.07.02

2014

Poster for Chef

Chef

7

Offers a pleasant cinematic road trip, which also works as a palate cleanser for Favreau the filmmaker.

2014.05.30

2014

Poster for Belle

Belle

7

Has an intelligence that should make it more appealing.

2014.05.23

2014

Poster for Locke

Locke

7

Has its flaws, but manages to satisfy as a minimalist work of social realism that is both dramatically-rich and often quite engaging.
