One of "The Immigrant’s" primary assets is its texture: a rich fabric of sights and sounds that evoke the look and feel of New York’s underbelly in the early 20th century.

"Godzilla" is a terrific piece of entertainment that doesn’t insult its audience and gives us more than our money’s worth.

This is the kind of film I usually root for: a collage of vignettes about offbeat, colorful characters, played by an A-list cast including the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman.

"Devil's Knot" screenwriters Paul Harris Boardman and Scott Derrickson, and the talented director Atom Egoyan, paint a picture of the principal figures in the case of the West Memphis Three and the community where the crimes and first murder trial took place.

"Belle" is handsome and well-cast with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who made an impression on me in Tom Hanks’ "Larry Crowne," in the title role.

I don’t demand a great deal from a glossy Hollywood comedy, but it would be nice to find a smarter, more original piece of work than this in the year 2014.

"Fading Gigolo" is a sweet, bracingly original, wholly entertaining film from John Turturro with a plum part for none other than Woody Allen.

The heartbeat of “Transcendence” comes from solid performances in the leading roles.

"Joe" paints a rich, multilayered portrait of a hardscrabble existence in this community, not unlike the world we encountered in Debra Granik’s "Winter’s Bone."
