  3. The Lunchbox
    96% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 74 reviews
    "Warm, affectionate, and sweet but not cloying, The Lunchbox is a clever crowd-pleaser from first-time director Ritesh Batra."
  4. Child’s Pose
    95% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 59 reviews
    "It isn't necessarily an easy watch, but thanks to Netzer's interesting direction and a riveting performance from Gheorghiu, Child's Pose is rewarding."
  5. Her
    94% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 219 reviews
    "Sweet, soulful, and smart, Spike Jonze's Her uses its just-barely-sci-fi scenario to impart wryly funny wisdom about the state of modern human relationships."
  6. Godzilla: The Japanese Original
    94% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 64 reviews

  7. The Grand Budapest Hotel
    92% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 209 reviews

  8. Le Week-End
    91% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 118 reviews
    "Topped with bittersweet humor but possessing surprisingly thorny depths, Le Week-End offers a sophisticated, well-acted portrait of late-life struggles and long-term marriage."
  9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    89% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 222 reviews
    "Suspenseful and politically astute, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a superior entry in the Avengers canon and is sure to thrill Marvel diehards."
  10. Omar
    89% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 66 reviews
    "Twisty and riveting, Omar is a well-directed crime drama with uncommon depth."
  11. The Wind Rises
    88% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 138 reviews
    "The Wind Rises is a fittingly bittersweet swan song for director Hayao Miyazaki."
  12. Tim's Vermeer
    88% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 104 reviews
    "Entertaining and profound in equal measure, Tim's Vermeer uses its seemingly esoteric subject to pose fascinating questions about art and obsession."
  13. The Double
    88% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 43 reviews
    "Hauntingly bleak and thrillingly ambitious, The Double offers Jesse Eisenberg a pair of compelling roles while reaffirming writer-director Richard Ayoade's remarkable talent."
  14. In Fear
    87% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 39 reviews
    "Compact and effective, In Fear offers discerning horror fans a smart and disturbing plunge into the depths of cinematic anxiety."
  15. Bears
    87% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 31 reviews
    "Sweet, beautifully filmed, and admirably short on sugarcoating, Bears continues Disneynature's winning streak."
  16. Like Father, Like Son
    86% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 83 reviews
    "Sensitively written, smartly directed, and powerfully performed, Like Father, Like Son uses familiar-seeming elements to tell a thought-provoking story."
  17. Joe
    84% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 75 reviews
    "Rich in atmosphere and anchored by a powerful performance from Nicolas Cage, Joe is a satisfying return to form for its star -- as well as director David Gordon Green."
  18. The Unknown Known
    83% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 86 reviews
    "Viewers hoping to see Donald Rumsfeld admit making mistakes in public office (or hoping Errol Morris will force him to give straight answers) may find The Unknown Known frustrating -- but no less fascinating."
  19. Rob the Mob
    82% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 34 reviews
    "Bolstered by a pair of likable leads and suffused in a warmly nostalgic glow, Rob the Mob is an uneven crime caper that mostly works."
  20. Grand Piano
    81% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 42 reviews
    "Grand Piano is so tense in its best moments -- and appealingly strange overall -- that it remains rewarding in spite of its flaws."
  21. G.B.F.
    81% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 37 reviews
  22. The Raid 2
    80% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 138 reviews
    "Although its high-energy plot and over-the-top violence may play better with genre aficionados, The Raid 2 definitely delivers more of everything audiences loved about its predecessor."
  23. Muppets Most Wanted
    79% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 160 reviews
    "While it may not reach the delirious heights of The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted still packs in enough clever gags, catchy songs, and celebrity cameos to satisfy fans of all ages."

    78% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 114 reviews
    "Mr. Peabody & Sherman offers a surprisingly entertaining burst of colorful all-ages fun, despite its dated source material and rather convoluted plot."
