The Grand Budapest Hotel

  • Rated as: 5/5

There’s nothing like the glow of a truly great film—and this could be Wes Anderson’s keeper—to trigger some niggling reservations. Let it be said that somewhere along the way, after his mighty The Royal Tenenbaums and before Fantastic Mr. Fox, cozy became interchangeable with stifling, and

Under the Skin

  • Rated as: 5/5

E.T. landed in the cozy suburbs and wanted to go home. Now Scarlett Johansson—or something that looks like her—has landed in modern Glasgow and is thinking about sticking around. (One can only guess that the weather is worse on her side of the galaxy.) Jonathan Glazer’s creepy, mysterious and

Grand Central Terminal, Main Concourse

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice
  • Free

The 1913 Beaux Arts train station is the city’s most spectacular point of arrival. The station played an important role in the nation’s historic preservation movement, after a series of legal battles that culminated in the 1978 Supreme Court decision affirming NYC’s landmark laws. One notable

"Robert Heinecken: Object Matter"

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Robert Heinecken (1931–2006) was an artist/photographer whose appropriation of existing imagery beginning in the 1960s made him an important precursor to the art of the Pictures generation of the late-1970s and 1980s. A self-described “paraphotographer,” Heinecken rarely used a camera,

Noah

  • Rated as: 2/5

Even the unfaithful know the elements: a world drowning in sin, a Heaven-sent deluge, and a massive vessel (containing two of every animal) waiting out the flood for 40 days and nights. What you might not know about are the rock Transformers. First things first, however—which is to note that

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  • Rated as: 4/5

With his biceps and righteousness pumped to the max, Chris Evans’s superhero Captain America is an enjoyable square peg in the round hole of the sleek Marvel universe. That continues in this involving sequel to 2011’s WWII-set Captain America: The First Avenger, placing the character in an

Divergent

  • Rated as: 2/5

Rest easy, Katniss: You've got this round. The first film adapted from Veronica Roth's generically dystopian book series arrives with a sludgy, gray-hued plop. It doesn't help that Roth's YA source material is particularly dopey, making The Hunger Games read like high Orwell. Her scenario is based

"Grand Central Centennial Quilts"

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Last spring, American Patchwork & Quilting magazine teamed up with local store the City Quilter to host a national contest for blankets inspired by the 100-year-old terminal. The grand prize, first- and second- place winners, and 27 finalists in this display draw from the building’s design

Transcendence

  • Rated as: 2/5

Shouldn’t a future America ruled by a disembodied Johnny Depp—playing an artificial intelligence on the rampage—be a lot more zany than this dull-as-computer-code thriller? Transcendence isn’t going to win any comparisons with last year’s Her (a pocket version of the same general

The Shakespeare

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4

In the past decade, Brit icons like April Bloomfield and Fergus Henderso (of London’s St. John), have transformed English food from punch line into powerhouse cuisine. Jason Hicks and Yves Jadot—the pair behind popular uptown gastropub Jones Wood Foundry—do their own enlightened version at
