'Terrible Love' (2014) Movie Review

'Terrible Love' (2014) Movie Review

The debut feature of Christopher Thomas about a wounded soldier returning home has individual moments that will sit with you, thanks to its two leads, but gets far too manipulative in its postproduction.

'The Last 5 Years' (2014) Movie Review

'The Last 5 Years' (2014) Movie Review

Richard LaGravenese's The Last 5 Years, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, perfectly captures Jason Robert Brown's beautiful off-Broadway musical by letting the score drive the story and showcasing two terrific performances, both as actors and singers.

'Listen Up Philip' (2014) Movie Review

'Listen Up Philip' (2014) Movie Review

Listen Up Philip is filled with strong performances, great female characters, and features a beautiful jazz score, but the repugnance of its main character and a lack of direction make it difficult to truly like.

'Force Majeure' (2014) Movie Review

'Force Majeure' (2014) Movie Review

Force Majeure is a difficult film to wrap your head around as it takes a dramatic, absurd and realistic look at human nature, and it's so expertly crafted you'll be at odds with your emotions as you find yourself laughing in horror.

'John Wick' (2014) Movie Review

'John Wick' (2014) Movie Review

Taking the "action first" approach stuntmen-turned-directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski have delivered a fast-paced and entertaining revenge thriller in John Wick with Keanu Reeves leading the way.

'Stonehearst Asylum' (2014) Movie Review

'Stonehearst Asylum' (2014) Movie Review

Despite an incredibly impressive cast, including Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, and Michael Caine, the thriller, based loosely on a, Edgar Allen Poe story, has a script the betrays any goodwill the rest of the production had going for it.

'Stretch' (2014) Movie Review

'Stretch' (2014) Movie Review

Imagine Collateral. Now imagine Collateral as a neon-filled, hooker and cocaine-fueled, balls-to-the-wall B-movie... maybe now you have some kind of idea what to expect from Joe Carnahan's Stretch.

'Birdman' (2014) Movie Review

'Birdman' (2014) Movie Review

Birdman is a film that's truly alive, bristling with anxiety, irony, satire and dark humor. Michael Keaton gives a knock-out performance as does the entire supporting cast in a film unlike any you've seen for quite some time, if ever.

'Young Ones' (2014) Movie Review

'Young Ones' (2014) Movie Review

Young Ones is a well executed drama held up by a quartet of very strong performances, including Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult, though its story is a bit thin.

'Wolves' (2014) Movie Review

'Wolves' (2014) Movie Review

The werewolf movie, starring Lucas Till and Jason Mamoa, is dull, uninventive, and bluntly stupid, making it one of the worst films I have seen this year.
