New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Force Majeure

  • Rated as: 4/5

A film with a delicious sense of unraveling domesticity

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1

  • Rated as: 4/5

While it definitely takes its foot off the action, this installment goes deeper and darker

The Theory of Everything

  • Rated as: 4/5

At its best, this affecting biopic of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking plays deftly against schmaltz

Interstellar

  • Rated as: 5/5

An overwhelming, immersive and time-bending space epic

Nightcrawler

  • Rated as: 5/5

Writer-director Dan Gilroy's supercharged Nightcrawler is a viciously funny film

Citizenfour

  • Rated as: 4/5

Even if you know Edward Snowden’s story, it’s doubly striking when heard here, straight from the horse’s mouth

Birdman

  • Rated as: 5/5

Savagely funny, strangely sweet, sad and utterly brilliant

New movie releases

Foxcatcher

  • Rated as: 2/5

Arrestingly made yet oppressive, this feeble-brained sports movie focuses on a true-life crime story

The Homesman

  • Rated as: 2/5

The West is a grim place in Tommy Lee Jones’s ineffective 19th-century oater

Diplomacy

  • Rated as: 3/5

Imagine a world in which that great City of Light, Paris, was razed to the ground

Dumb and Dumber To

  • Rated as: 3/5

Cinema’s most improbably tolerable pair of morons is back for a proper sequel that looks like a cash grab but works like a time machine

Rosewater

  • Rated as: 3/5

Jon Stewart turns out to be a merely okay director, judging from this sincere yet serviceable political drama

Big Hero 6

  • Rated as: 3/5

An enjoyable diversion from a studio that usually offers more

John Wick

  • Rated as: 3/5

John Wick feels like action manna for its cleanly designed gun-fu sequences and brutal takedowns

Fury

  • Rated as: 3/5

Brad Pitt pulls along this gutsy, old-fashioned WWII epic by the sheer brute force of his charisma
