Foxcatcher (2014)

Foxcatcher is brilliantly acted, richly detailed, but as cold to the touch as a metal pole in sub zero temperatures.

Hobbit, The: The Battle Of The Five Armies (2014)

Riddled with problems, some more glaring than others, I still give a cautious recommendation...

Exodus: Gods And Kings (2014)

Overwrought, joyless, and unrelenting, Ridley Scott's Exodus offers the Eleventh Plague of Boredom and Frustration...

Penguins Of Madagascar (2014)

Not a bad or terrible film, there just is not much to recommend here.

Hunger Games, The: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014)

Everything great about the first two films is absent in this new installment...

Theory Of Everything, The (2014)

The question is not whether Eddie Redmayne is an Oscar nominee for Best Actor in 2014, but whether or not he is the winner.

Big Hero 6 (2014)

★★★1/2 What this had the potential to be and what it ultimately becomes is a bit disappointing, but I offer no hesitation in recommending this...

Whiplash (2014)

★★★★1/2 Whiplash simply grips you by the throat and never lets go.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) (2014)

★★★★★ Michael Keaton delivers an astonishing performance in this extraordinary film...
