Laggies

5

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

Nightcrawler

8

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

Dear White People

8

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

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

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

Poster for The Boxtrolls

The Boxtrolls

7

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

2014

Poster for Dorothy of Oz

Dorothy of Oz

3

Accomplished little more than being a glorified 90-minute distraction for kids.

Poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

7

Feels like a step in the right direction for the rebooted Spider-Man franchise – hopefully leading to better installments in the future.

2014.05.02

2014

Poster for The Quiet Ones

The Quiet Ones

4

Just a hodgepodge of retro and modern horror elements that isn’t all that memorable.

Poster for A Haunted House 2

A Haunted House 2

Moviegoers who enjoyed the first as pure guilty pleasure viewing may get additional mileage out of the sequel.

Poster for Rio 2

Rio 2

5

Provides enough decent material to compensate for the film’s derivative qualities.

Poster for The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel

9

The Wes Anderson meter cranked up to 10 makes the movie a wondrous celebration of everything that the filmmaker stands for and holds dear to his heart.
