How to Train Your Dragon 2

The Fault in Our Stars

Grab the hankies.

Maleficent

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Chef

Food. Lots of Food.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

An X-citing X-ample of a sequel that X-ceeds X-pectations.

Godzilla

Godzilla plays a supporting character in his own movie. 

Belle

An entertaining and inspiring story about human dignity.  

Mom’s Night Out

Still a bit cheesy, but a step in the right direction for “faith-based” films.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

A bloated spectacle that works because, and only when, it wears its heart on its sleeve.

Million Dollar Arm

Jon Hamm is the worst part of this Jon Hamm movie.

Transcendence

A beautiful waste.

Heaven is For Real

Colton Burpo’s been to Heaven, and he wants you to know that it’s for real.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Some stuff blows up, and Captain America saves the day again. Whatever.

The Muppets Most Wanted

The Best ‘Muppets’ Movie since… well, the last one!

Draft Day

Kevin Costner stars in a dull look at a dull tradition within America’s favorite sport.

Noah

Amid a flurry of controversy, ‘NOAH’ has flooded into theaters. Is the movie faithful to the Biblical story? … And is it even a good film?

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Wes Anderson at his most Wes-Andersonian.

Need for Speed

Do you have the Need?

The LEGO Movie

“Everything is awesome!”

Mr. Peabody and Sherman

“I forbid you to fight in the Trojan War!” Isn’t it what any good father would tell their son? Albeit, most fathers probably aren’t a talking dog. Or the inventor of a time machine that brought them to the Trojan War in the first place.

Non Stop

Everyone is suspect.

Her

A poignant and deeply heartbreaking exploration of the many facets of falling in love, and of the reasons we give ourselves for accepting counterfeit love in an ever-changing world of instant connection and growing loneliness.

Robocop

Don’t go see this movie. Just don’t.

Short Term 12

An intimate gem of a movie about tackling personal demons, and the power of grace.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Stop Dreaming. Start Living.

The Monuments Men

Is art worth dying for? Certainly not ‘art’ this dull.

Labor Day

A sap-fest that’s one part The Fugitive, and one part The Notebook.

August: Osage County

Meryl Streep’s borderline scenery-chewing performance heads up this dark dramedy featuring a number of A-list actors.

Lone Survivor

A moving and harrowing tribute to those who daily put their lives on the line for their country.

Frozen

frozen1
Disney returns to form with this delightful new sing-along adventure.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

A moving history lesson that narrowly succeeds as a tribute to the life of Nelson Mandela.

Philomena

A moving journey through grief with the unlikeliest of duos.

Saving Mr. Banks

This joyous celebration of the struggles that accompany bringing art to life is a spoonful of sugar.

Gravity

Quite possibly one of the most stunning and beautifully simple films ever made.

12 Years a Slave

A heart-wrenching and brutal look at our nation’s greatest atrocity.

American Hustle

Is it even possible for a David O. Russell-directed drama with Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner to fall flat on its face? Apparently.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Does the holiday season already depress you? Well, here’s the perfect movie for you.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

The gang is back together! And they’re staying classy.

The Book Thief

An admirable little film that is both bleak and hopeful.

Nebraska

A delightfully simple road-trip dramedy from Alexander Payne.

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

Still trying to capture that good ol’ “Lord of the Rings” magic.

The Dallas Buyer’s Club

A flawed but gritty look at the rise of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980′s, led by a forceful performance from Matthew McConaughey.

The Christmas Candle

A sentimental, if hokey, Christmas movie for the whole family.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: All-Stars Edition.

Out of the Furnace

A mediocre drama with top-notch performances from Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, and Casey Affleck.

The Way Way Back

A heartfelt, hilarious, and original “coming-of-age” story that enchants throughout.
