3/4 89% A Royal Affair (2012) " The film ends not on a happy note, naturally, but on a moment of hope. Love may not conquer all, but it has a power all its own." — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 18, 2013
2/4 28% Broken City (2013) " Broken City is one of those movies in which characters keep reminding you that nothing is what it seems, and sure enough, there's more going on here than mere infidelity. But the audience is hard-pressed to follow exactly what it is." — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 18, 2013
2/4 60% The Last Stand (2013) " Director Jee-woon Kim (I Saw the Devil) handles the action sequences effectively if not spectacularly, though The Last Stand could have dispensed with the occasional attempts at sobriety and cut straight to the chase (or chases)." — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 18, 2013
2.5/4 82% De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012) " The movie wanders off course in the final act, as if none of its three screenwriters could quite figure out how to end it. " — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 11, 2013
2/4 32% Gangster Squad (2013) " Gangster Squad is The Untouchables moved west and cheesed up." — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 10, 2013
1.5/4 36% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) " A languid, tedious effort that never bothers to get to the heart of its characters, the film is a shallow reading of a significant time told mostly from the viewpoint of a lifeless character. " — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 4, 2013
2.5/4 81% The Impossible (2012) " While it may have been changed for the screen, this story of a family's ordeal is one from which any parent - any person, really - can't turn away. " — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3/4 52% Promised Land (2013) " Damon and McDormand are terrific as co-workers seeking the same goal, though they see their work from different points of view." — Miami Herald
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3/4 38% The Guilt Trip (2012) " The Guilt Trip is clearly targeted at older audiences less than receptive to the crude jokes that made Seth Rogen famous." — Miami Herald
Posted Dec 20, 2012
1.5/4 51% This is 40 (2012) " This is 40 is crude and dull, with a supporting cast that reminds you how utterly uninteresting the main characters are." — Miami Herald
Posted Dec 20, 2012
3/4 64% The Fitzgerald Family Christmas (2012) " These Fitzgeralds are loud, selfish and often maddening, but they're a loving group, and you wouldn't mind spending more time with them." — Miami Herald
Posted Dec 14, 2012
3.5/4 87% Life of Pi (2012) " Don't wait for Netflix. Life of Pi demands to be seen on the biggest screen you can find." — Miami Herald
Posted Nov 21, 2012
2/4 78% A Late Quartet (2012) " For a film that relies so heavily on the lasting power of a classical master, A Late Quartet never really converts any viewers to his church. " — Miami Herald
Posted Nov 9, 2012
2.5/4 78% Flight (2012) " But while a movie as grim as Flight could use a moment or two of levity, does it have to be in service to the antithetical idea that drug dealers are awesome? " — Miami Herald
Posted Nov 1, 2012
1.5/4 34% The Oranges (2012) " You know the movie has an insurmountable problem when the two adulterers, who profess to be madly in love, don't even seem like they want to be in the same room." — Miami Herald
Posted Oct 5, 2012
3.5/4 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " The best thing about an animated monster movie with this much heart is: It's alive. In the best possible way." — Miami Herald
Posted Oct 5, 2012
2/4 67% 17 Girls (2012) " 17 Girls is allegedly inspired by true events, but this diffident, dreamy film is so insubstantial it's hard to believe there's a speck of reality to be found in it. " — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/4 85% The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) " High school can be hell, but Stephen Chbosky's engaging new film argues that anyone can get by with a little help from their friends. " — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/4 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " If you're not grinning by the end of this light, funny crowd-pleaser, consider yourself tone deaf. " — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 28, 2012
1.5/4 33% Won't Back Down (2012) " Americans desperately need to have some difficult conversations about the state of public education, but Won't Back Down goes about the task too awkwardly to be helpful or interesting." — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 28, 2012
2/4 50% Trouble with the Curve (2012) " Nobody would pay much attention to this plodding but good-hearted film if not for its star, Clint Eastwood, although he's just dialing in the go-to Cantankerous Old Man mode on which he has relied for a decade or so." — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 23, 2012
3/4 56% Bachelorette (2012) " Bachelorette will no doubt be divisive, possibly along generational lines. If you have to ask "Do women really talk this way?" it's not for you." — Miami Herald
Posted Sep 6, 2012
1/4 70% Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012) " Tries to blend chick flick staples with bro humor but never quite gets the mix right." — Miami Herald
Posted Aug 23, 2012
3/4 64% The Campaign (2012) " Though it's crude and juvenile in ways that makes you vaguely ashamed at laughing so much, The Campaign is versatile enough to sneak in a good shot or two at the American political system." — Miami Herald
Posted Aug 9, 2012
1/4 30% Total Recall (2012) " The new Total Recall fails on the most basic levels: Its characters are dull, and its action is duller." — Miami Herald
Posted Aug 2, 2012
2.5/4 42% Step Up Revolution (2012) " Contrary to its message, it will not change the world. But the dancing will make you sit up and take notice." — Miami Herald
Posted Jul 26, 2012
2/4 17% The Watch (2012) " It's just an excuse for jokes about male genitalia and its operational weaknesses." — Miami Herald
Posted Jul 26, 2012
3/4 80% Magic Mike (2012) " McConaughey goes for broke, rolling and writhing on the stage while women grab at him and throw cash. I would've handed over my credit card." — Miami Herald
Posted Jun 27, 2012
3/4 35% Lola Versus (2012) " An extremely smart, exquisitely funny film about finding yourself amid the clang and clutter of contemporary life." — Miami Herald
Posted Jun 21, 2012
1/4 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " For a movie that prides itself on celebrating music, Adam Shankman's Rock of Ages is oddly tone deaf." — Miami Herald
Posted Jun 14, 2012
2/4 29% Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding (2012) " If nothing else, you must applaud Peace, Love & Misunderstanding for its cheery insistence that a lifetime of resentment can float away as easily as a helium-filled balloon." — Miami Herald

Posted May 18, 2012
3/4 78% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) " As for the Marigold Hotel, well, it's not the Delano. But overall it's a fine spot to spend a couple of hours." — Miami Herald
Posted May 11, 2012
2/4 4% A Little Bit Of Heaven (2012) " When a movie opens with a character telling you that love isn't important, that movie is definitely going to smack down that nonbeliever, because movies always believe love is important." — Miami Herald
Posted May 4, 2012
3/4 22% Darling Companion (2012) " The movie takes a simple if shattering occurrence and uses it as a way to bring a family together, an old trick but one well played by director Lawrence Kasdan and his wife and screenwriting partner Meg." — Miami Herald
Posted May 4, 2012
3/4 63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) " It makes you laugh and eagerly wish for a happy ending without any preachy soul-searching." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 27, 2012
2.5/4 20% The Lucky One (2012) " Despite a plot hole so big it could generate its own gravity field, it's still not a bad movie." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 19, 2012
1/4 —— Overnight (2012) " Overnight is the feel-dumb movie of the spring." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 19, 2012

Posted Apr 19, 2012
3/4 85% Bully (2012) " For a film that understandably only scratches the surface of its topic, Bully carries a devastating emotional punch." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 13, 2012
3.5/4 92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) " Fans of Whedon are fond of repeating the mantra "In Joss we trust" - and with good reason." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 12, 2012
2/4 38% Detention (2012) " Somebody somewhere forgot that a film needs a streamlined story to make visual chaos palatable." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 12, 2012
2/4 38% Lockout (Unrated) (2012) " Pearce gets into his groove swiftly, owns it and remains entertaining. The rest of the movie, however, would work better as a video game." — Miami Herald
Posted Apr 12, 2012
2.5/4 67% Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012) " Hallstrom shores up his film with a terrific cast that can often make up for the parts that sag under the uneven weight of preciousness." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 29, 2012
3.5/4 93% Coriolanus (2011) " Slathered in blood, covered with scars and glowering with a predator's gaze, Ralph Fiennes makes a fierce and impressive Caius Martius Coriolanus." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 23, 2012
2.5/4 79% The Deep Blue Sea (2012) " That's the difficulty in warming up to The Deep Blue Sea: The first thing we see Hester do is foolish and inconceivable, which makes it hard to get invested in her future." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 23, 2012
2.5/4 63% Delicacy (2012) " Delicacy ends on a wonderful bittersweet note, but getting there isn't as effortless as you might want it to be." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 15, 2012
3/4 67% Friends With Kids (2012) " It's funny without being ridiculous, sweet without turning sentimental, even though it involves parenthood." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 9, 2012
3/4 51% John Carter (2012) " John Carter manages to be a ridiculous amount of fun, even if you are immune to the charms of Taylor Kitsch running around in what amounts to a stylish loincloth." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 7, 2012
2/4 13% W.E. (2012) " A movie more concerned with how things look than how they feel." — Miami Herald
Posted Mar 1, 2012
1.5/4 59% Wanderlust (2012) " Wanderlust is not the worst movie you will see all year. But it is not good." — Miami Herald
