Movie Review Divergent
by Owen Gleiberman | Mar 19, 2014

''Woodley, through the delicate power of her acting, does something compelling: She shows you what a prickly, fearful, yet daring personality looks like when it's nestled deep within the kind of modest, bookish girl who shouldn't even like gym class.''

Movie Review 3 Days to Kill
by Owen Gleiberman | Feb 21, 2014

Movie Review Pompeii
by Owen Gleiberman | Feb 21, 2014

''Most of the film is a chintzy but watchable B-movie knockoff of Gladiator, with Kit Harington mustering very little in the way of facial expressivity in the role of Milo, a slave-gladiator whose Celtic family was slaughtered by Corvus, a nasty Roman officer-turned-senator played with smarmy superiority by Keifer Sutherland.''

Movie Review Endless Love
by Owen Gleiberman | Feb 13, 2014

Movie Review Vampire Academy
by Owen Gleiberman | Feb 07, 2014

''The movie is all random cutting remarks, hand-to-hand fight scenes that seem particularly pointless in a film where everyone is supernatural, and a story that barely pretends to matter.''

Cover Story Philip Seymour Hoffman: 1967-2014
