Poster for Whiplash

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

Poster for Rosewater

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

Poster for Laggies

Laggies

5.0

2014, Drama, Comedy, Love

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

2014.11.07

Poster for Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

8.0

2014, Drama, Suspense, Crime

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

Poster for Dear White People

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

Poster for St. Vincent

St. Vincent

7.0

2014, Comedy

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

2014.10.24

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

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

Poster for The Boxtrolls

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

Poster for Tusk

Tusk

4.0

2014, Drama, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

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

Poster for The Drop

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

Poster for If I Stay

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

Poster for The Expendables 3

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

Poster for The Hundred-Foot Journey

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.

2014.08.08

Poster for Get on Up

Get on Up

8.0

2014, Drama, Music

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

2014.08.01

Poster for Hercules

Hercules

5.0

2014, Adventure, Action

Tongue in cheek, lunkheaded summer blockbuster entertainment...

2014.07.25

Poster for Planes: Fire & Rescue

Planes: Fire & Rescue

4.0

2014, Adventure, Animation, Comedy

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

2014.07.18

Poster for Tammy

Tammy

4.0

2014, Comedy

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

2014.07.02

Poster for Chef

Chef

7.0

2014, Comedy

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

2014.05.30

Poster for Belle

Belle

7.0

2013, Drama

Has an intelligence that should make it more appealing.

2014.05.23

Poster for Locke

Locke

7.0

2014, Drama, Suspense

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

2014.05.16

Poster for Dorothy of Oz

Dorothy of Oz

3.0

2013, Animation, Music

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

2014.05.09

Poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

7.0

2014, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

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

Poster for The Quiet Ones

The Quiet Ones

4.0

2014, Horror

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

2014.04.25

Poster for A Haunted House 2

A Haunted House 2

2.0

2014, Horror, Comedy

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