Reese Witherspoon is wonderful in Wild, a truly inspiring movie, filling you with a thirst to experience life to the fullest. Read the Review
Jon Stewart's Rosewater is an interesting, mildly entertaining, though relatively safe look at four months in the life of imprisoned journalist Maziar Bahari. Read the Review
There is no pinning Foxcatcher down and easily setting the stage for people to see it. It's simply a film you must experience for yourself and a movie that will remain with you for days after seeing it. Read the Review
Noah Baumbach's While We're Young explores a cross-section of cultures as the old and young come together and it's a movie I simply could not connect with and only got progressively annoyed. Read the Review
The Imitation Game is an outstanding look at the life of mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing with what may be Benedict Cumberbatch's best performance to date. Read the Review
I could have guessed [REC] 4: Apocalypse would be terrible, but I was in the mood for horror and decided to give it a shot... my fault. Read the Review
The Theory of Everything is a good film that will likely result in cheers from most audiences with two superb performances from Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones as they bring a dramatized story of the lives of Stephen and Jane Hawking to the big screen. Read the Review
Adam Wingard delivers a delightfully twisted and comically dark tale with The Guest, completed with the perfect casting of Dan Stevens as the titular guest who may or may not be the best thing to come into the Peterson's life. Read the Review

Tom Hardy, once again, shows a whole new face to his talents in The Drop, a classically told crime drama that's not so much about the crime, but about the characters. Read the Review

Leviathan is a masterclass in filmmaking, but also a film in which I came away feeling an emotional distance that I couldn't quite qualify. Read the Review
David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars is a lame attempt at a dark, Hollywood satire with nothing new to say, filled with cliches that are all-too-familiar. Read the Review
