Posted Jul 24, 2013
8/10 75% The Way Back (2011) " The Way Back is an inspiring story that is beautifully photographed and full of interesting and well acted characters. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
4/10 21% The Rite (2011) " Poor character development, a thin plot and predictability make this one a forgettable film. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
5/10 55% Gnomeo and Juliet (2011) " Sophomoric humor and a lack of substance make Gnomeo and Juliet a rather forgettable flick. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
7/10 39% The Eagle (2011) " Despite its bleak atmosphere and sparse storyline, period drama The Eagle is a pleasant surprise. It entertains with some great sword play, and the themes of honor and bravery overcome the simplicity of the story. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
7/10 33% I Am Number Four (2011) " Though geared towards a young adult audience, I Am Number Four entertains with sleek special effects, scary aliens, and superhero action. " ‐ We Got This Covered

Posted Jul 24, 2013
8/10 66% Insidious (2011) " Insidious is effectively creepy and is able to provide some great horror elements without the gore. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
5/10 No Score Yet Jez Jerzy " The amateurish animation and excessive vulgarity is a turn off, and the light-weight plot/storyline doesn't help matters either. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
6/10 21% Beastly (2011) " So this isn't a great re-imagining of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, but Beastly does have mass tweener appeal. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
7/10 37% Mars Needs Moms (2011) " Mars Needs Moms actually entertained me. There's the bright colors and great 3D, but there's also some touching moments and grown-up wit " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
8/10 66% Hobo With a Shotgun (2011) " Hobo With A Shotgun is a film in the tradition of 70s exploitation films. But unlike most grindhouse films, this one is actually awesome. " ‐ We Got This Covered

Posted Jun 2, 2013
6/10 84% Beginners (2011) " Beginners, beyond its pervasive atmosphere of melancholy and loss, suffers from a little self-indulgence. It's your typical indie drama. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
6/10 60% The Beaver (2011) " Jodie Foster's The Beaver had its moments, but the overall premise just didn't fly. I just couldn't buy the idea of the talking puppet. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
7/10 94% Win Win (2011) " A thoughtful study of relationships and family dynamics, Win Win wrestles the competition to the ground. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
7/10 71% Paul (2011) " A sort of comedy homage to seminal sci-fi movie culture from the 80s, Paul never takes itself too seriously and is a lot of fun. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013

Posted Jun 2, 2013
9/10 49% Super (2011) " Great dark humor and enjoyable performances make this one a winner. Surprisingly, the animated sequences also work quite well. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
6/10 10% Red Riding Hood (2011) " Trite dialogue, poor special effects and an insubstantial storyline make this one a bit of a dud. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 2, 2013
6/10 84% Jane Eyre (2011) " A rather anemic version of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, Focus Film and BBC's Jane Eyre favors atmosphere over strong narrative. " ‐ We Got This Covered

Posted May 3, 2013
3/10 60% Cold Sweat (Sudor frío) (2012) " Cold Sweat is a nonsensical horror film out of Argentina. With a plot so illogical it's hard to describe, it didn't work on any level. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 3, 2013
5/10 58% Scream 4 (2011) " Weak plot, half-assed performances and lacking any originality make this a lame and uninspired film. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 21, 2013
6/10 11% Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011) " While staying true to Rand's vision, Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 suffers from poor directing and it lacks the sleekness it needs to connect with audiences. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 21, 2013
7/10 25% Hop (2011) " A miscast Russell Brand and some poor writing make the film nothing but a decent one time watch. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 21, 2013
5/10 60% Water for Elephants (2011) " The leads lack chemistry and the movie has a very cookie-cutter love story that was far too predictable. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 21, 2013
7/10 36% Prom (2011) " Wholesome story, colorful characters and sweet romantic elements, make for a decent watch. " ‐ We Got This Covered

Posted Mar 25, 2013
3/10 8% Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (2011) " Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night is a fun comedy/horror whodunnit with a supernatural twist. It delivers plenty of movie fun too, just like those campy 80's monster flicks. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 25, 2013
6/10 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) " Much Ado About Nothing is a cute and stylish modern adaptation of Shakespeare's play, but it's largely unremarkable especially when compared to film versions that are already out there. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 14, 2013
4/10 84% The Tree of Life (2011) " The lack of story or purpose is annoying and at times, the film is too experimental. Topping things off is an abrupt and unsatisfying ending which doesn't leave us with good feelings towards the film. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 13, 2013
5/10 38% Skateland (2011) " A mundane and tired story that lacks depth doesn't exactly make Skateland an exciting or even enjoyable film. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 13, 2013

Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/10 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) " Drinking Buddies wasn't the worst I've seen from Swanberg (luckily no meandering-film-student feel to this one), but it wasn't very compelling or interesting either. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 13, 2013
7/10 98% Before Midnight (2013) " Before Midnight is one of those dialogue-driven indie dramas that make you appreciate the medium of film. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 11, 2013
5/10 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) " The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is by no means an awful film, and it does have some genuinely funny moments, it just offers nothing new and comes off as stale and recycled for the most part. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 9, 2013
8/10 62% Evil Dead (2013) " Evil Dead lacks the humor and sub-genre-launching power of the original, but it's a solid remake that is definitely worth watching, even and especially if you are a fan of the original. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 9, 2013
5/10 14% Zookeeper (2011) " Kevin James' new comedy Zookeeper may be popular with the kiddos, but slapstick humor and a cookie-cutter storyline doom it for adults. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 2, 2013
6/10 35% Larry Crowne (2011) " Larry Crowne is nothing we haven't seen before and at times feels over-done and cliched. " ‐ We Got This Covered

Posted Mar 2, 2013
5/10 32% The Ward (2011) " The Ward might not bode too well for Carpenter's come back, but he did do good things with what he had to work with (clichéd story and script). " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 2, 2013
9/10 90% Winnie the Pooh (2011) " Winnie the Pooh is a charming addition to the Pooh collection of animated family films. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 2, 2013
6/10 21% Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011) " Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a delicate, if sometimes disturbing, portrait of the enduring relationships that bond women together, out in theaters now. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 28, 2013
5/10 22% The Smurfs (2011) " The Smurfs is a cute family film that suffers from being a little formulaic and uninspired, and the CGI smurfs don't look like the original characters. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 28, 2013
9/10 76% The Help (2011) " Outstanding performances and a delicate approach to racial tensions make this film a cut above other inspirational period dramas. " ‐ We Got This Covered

2/10 30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) " The gratuitous and exploitative nature of the violence, coupled with very little story development and plot, makes for a film without any real purpose other to shock and appall. " ‐ We Got This Covered
