    The Summit does an amazing job of putting you on the mountain, making it one of the most terrifying horror films a climber or an acrophobe could ever see.
    • 76 Metascore

    These three central performances, and a solid script by Anders Thomas Jensen and director Susanne Bier, ground a potentially overwrought story in genuine feeling.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Ultimately, though, this is a story about a conflicted, intelligent, flawed, moral woman making her way through her life.

    Controversy aside, there's no denying that Kinsey was a pivotal figure in 20th-century America, and one whose fascinating story makes for a fascinating film.
    • 78 Metascore

    The results are inspiring, demonstrating that an artistic eye is an innate thing.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    As fascinating as all the film history is, the movie's core is the dynamic between a famous but distant parent and his child.
    • 89 Metascore

    It's hard to say what's more fascinating: The engaging explication of various paintings by the remarkably articulate docents, the behind-the-scenes looks at the preservation and restoration processes, or the boardroom discussions about the appropriateness of marketing efforts. Actually, that third one probably isn't the most fascinating, but I still wanted more of it.

    Ida
    Just as austere and demanding as you'd expect a black-and-white film about a Polish nun to be. Don't let that scare you, though.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Social critique isn't the main concern of director James Ponsoldt ("Smashed"). What he does is take us inside an unexpected, but not unrealistic, high school relationship and provide a splendid stage for two young and very promising actors.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    It mostly manages the impressive feat of mixing jaw-droppingly gross jokes with characters that are worth caring about.
    • 74 Metascore

    Hold onto your hats, True Believers! This one's got the most massive, momentous montage of Marvel's merry mutants ever mashed into one movie!
    • 89 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    The first to take a big-picture view of just how the plans for postwar occupation went so far off track.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    If the presence of Cheadle and his handsome pal George Clooney can entice otherwise resistant viewers to learn about the ongoing travesty in western Sudan, then Darfur Now has done its job.

    XXY
    The word "hermaphrodite" is never actually uttered, for instance, and the whole topic is revealed obliquely, mostly through the puzzled eyes of Alvaro. Most impressively, a tale that could have been handled with condescending simplicity becomes a testament to the flawed but noble humanity of both parents and children.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Ultimately, it's an instructive and entertaining examination of both the overlooked environmental costs of everyday life and the possibilities for change.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    An unrelenting and important exposé of a system that, as depicted here, has no place in the modern world.
    • 53 Metascore

    Parents who want smart, harmless movies that don't condescend for their school-age kids -- a rare thing these days -- should be grateful for Nancy Drew.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    If there's one thing missing, it's a sense of purposeful, immediate outrage. You can't help but wonder why this film wasn't made 20 years ago, when it could have saved these men some time behind bars.

    With limited means, Westby makes excellent use of Portland locations and cinematic references to make Film Geek a mostly spot-on, sometimes hilarious character study. His greatest asset is Malkasian, who gives Scotty the prototypical geek attributes.

    What makes the Dardennes' films so powerful is their refusal to judge, positively or negatively, their characters.

    If Rod Serling had hired Robert Altman to direct a "Twilight Zone" episode, it might have turned out something like this.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    In the fine tradition of well-made thrillers, it's enough that it all feels solid at the moment, and the final revelations are unexpected and seemingly inevitable.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    A surprisingly in-depth and confrontational examination into the obesity epidemic among Americans, especially children, over the last 30 years.
    • 76 Metascore

    Politics aside, Obvious Child hinges on Slate's performance, which is endearing and real.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    The black-and-white cinematography and silent-film feel are haunting and nostalgic, and Aurora's story encapsulates a broader, bittersweet truth about the perils of tinted memory.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    The worry regarding 2014's Godzilla was that it would seem like a retread of recent big-budget monster mashes "Cloverfield" or "Pacific Rim," or, worse yet, that it would sink to the depths of the 1998 American reboot. Happily, though, this one can stand on its own two enormous three-toed feet.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Although its three-part structure plays out more like sketch comedy than a fully-cooked story, Lavie's debut is an impressive and entertaining one.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    For those under the impression that Icelandic life consists solely of fishing and the hosting of international summits, this triangle of love, lust, and misunderstanding from director Baltasar Kormakur is a welcome treat.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Moving and suspenseful.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    The movie's a solid fish-out-of-water thriller that just happens to be populated by a few folks with adamantium skeletons or poison saliva on their résumés.
