As much as I would love to praise A Most Violent Year simply based on the fact J.C. Chandor continues to test himself, it's nevertheless a film that feels as if it's trying to be something rather than actually being that something.
The modernized, auto-tuned retelling of little orphan Annie is one of the most charmless movie musicals I have seen in quite some time.
The Gambler is a somewhat uneven, though very entertaining film, failed only by its tacked on ending.
Unbroken is a mess as Angelina Jolie misses the mark by a wide margin in her attempt to tell the life story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini, but in the end leaves us with nothing more than Zamperini's resume.
Chris Rock saves his risks for the comedy bits in Top Five, a film that's being sold as a riotous comedy even though it's more of a sweet and sincere drama with comedy bits peppered throughout.
