93% Skyfall (2012) "Every time a Bond fan extols the virtues of the Bond films I wish I could see what they saw. I finally have, and I saw it in SKYFALL. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 23, 2012
62% Sinister (2012) "[Villain] Mr. Boogie shows up too often to be effective, but is kept too mysterious to be interesting. Also, he looks like a heavy metal band's attempt to create their own Eddie-like mascot. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

85% The Master (2012) "Paul Thomas Anderson is obviously at the height of his powers right now, and he has crafted a character piece that is enthralling and engulfing. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 16, 2012
66% Cloud Atlas (2012) "CLOUD ATLAS left me with an incredible sense of hope for the future of cinema. And the future of humanity. How many movies give you that? " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

55% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) "A totally forgettable piece of substandard sitcom fluff that will one day be a blip on Ari Graynor's resume. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Posted Aug 31, 2012
65% The Expendables 2 (2012) "In some ways it's an action star minstrel show; they're all doing their famous lines and shuffling across the screen hoping for some tiny bit of love from the audience. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 16, 2012
55% The Bourne Legacy (2012) "The film, while echoing The Bourne Identity, is adequate enough (not the highest praise, I know) and creates enough space for itself to warrant further adventures. " ‐ CHUD
Posted Aug 7, 2012
87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "The whole movie feels so like a series of contradictions - bloated and long yet rushed, deeply serious yet utterly silly, politically minded yet ultimately vapid - that being both wildly entertaining and a bad movie would be exactly right for it. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 17, 2012
72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) "The only thing amazing about this movie is how badly it goes off the rails. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 1, 2012

Posted May 31, 2012
48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) "There's lots of talent on display in the film (and I think the film will make a good display movie for your home theater one day), but none of it matters when the script is so saggy and the lead so wrong. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 31, 2012
93% Indie Game: The Movie (2012) "The struggles these guys face getting their games done are monumental, and makes for some really tense, anxious stuff. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 29, 2012
34% Battleship (2012) "Director Peter Berg engages in Michael Bay fetishism the way one might say Ed Gein engaged in female festishism. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 15, 2012

Posted Apr 27, 2012
51% The Three Stooges (2012) "If you're a Stooges fan, go see the movie. If you like crude, silly slapstick, go see the movie. If you have a stick up your ass, go see Titanic. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 14, 2012
43% American Reunion (2012) "I would accuse American Reunion of being misogynistic, but the movie seems to hold all of humanity in contempt, not just women. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 6, 2012

Posted Mar 20, 2012
85% 21 Jump Street (2012) "It would have been impressive if the 21 Jump Street movie was any good. The fact that it's flat-out great feels like showboating by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 12, 2012
92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) "You'll feel like horror is revitalized, like its importance is more obvious than ever. That might be Cabin's greatest achievement, reminding us why we love and need this genre. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

59% Wanderlust (2012) "Hilarious. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 2, 2012
51% John Carter (2012) "Often spectacular, with stunning action and thrilling moments, it's a film that captures the pulpy, swashbuckling sensibilities of Burroughs while updating much of the whiz bang for an audience a century older than the original novels. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 1, 2012
17% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) "This is a movie of shattering ineptitude, starting at the script and reaching into every aspect of the cheap, rushed, sh***y-looking production. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Feb 17, 2012
53% Safe House (2012) "Safe House will have you on the edge of your seat - so you can spring out of it the second the credits roll. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Feb 9, 2012
85% Chronicle (2012) "A strong, well-told science fiction movie that uses its fantastical ideas to explore grounded human emotions. It's got vivid action and it has cool concepts, but most of it all it has great characters. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Posted Feb 2, 2012
79% The Grey (2012) "If we had one like this a month - lean, smart, muscular, thematically coherent and filled with good character actors - the cinema would be in remarkably good shape. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) "The ultimate poseur movie... [A cinematic] temporary tattoo, a way of feeling underground without ever committing to anything real. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Posted Dec 22, 2011
93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) "A legitimately great action film, a thrilling and fun bit of exquisitely crafted escapism. It might be the best in the series, and it's without a doubt the best since the first film. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 14, 2011
59% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) "the touches that made the first film a surprise seem to have disappeared. The Holmes/Watson relationship is now shrill, the facade of a mystery story has been chucked for a nation-hopping action adventure, and the volume has been turned up to 12. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 12, 2011
97% The Artist (2011) "If The Artist truly were from the period it's about, it would be a minor film that occasionally played on TCM at 3AM, and about which even hardcore silent film fans wouldn't care much. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 29, 2011
66% We Bought a Zoo (2011) "We Bought A Zoo is targeted at people who cry during TV commercials, who get misty eyed in the greeting card aisle. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 27, 2011
94% Hugo (2011) "A deeply felt, hugely personal, glorious and heart-swelling ode to the magic of cinema and stories: the way they bring us together, allow us to understand each other, allow us to see our dreams come true. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 25, 2011
96% The Muppets (2011) "I don't know why The Muppets faded away over the last couple of decades, but [this film] proves that they still have plenty of heart and smart-assness to give to a new generation and beyond. " ‐ CHUD
Posted Nov 21, 2011
24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 might be the most beautiful and well made bad film in history. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 18, 2011
68% Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) "PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 feels the most like a real film, even though it sticks to the exhausted found footage format of the first two. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 19, 2011
77% Outrage (2011) "To me there's no better praise you can give to a crime film -- when a hood gets his comeuppance you don't feel thrilled but bummed out. " ‐ Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 18, 2011
70% Footloose (2011) "Every dance sequence in the film is simply spectacular. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 13, 2011
30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) "Depraved and disgusting but intellectually active, The Human Centipede 2 never fully coheres as a movie but works incredibly as a screed of cultural critique. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 7, 2011
85% The Ides of March (2011) "Smart and as exciting as a thriller, with killer performances. Ryan Gosling is magnificent. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 7, 2011
94% 50/50 (2011) "Emotional without being cloying, honest and funny and low key. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 30, 2011
91% Take Shelter (2011) "Playing like the excruciatingly long first act of a better movie, Take Shelter long overstays its welcome while confusing narrative indolence for tension. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 27, 2011
60% Real Steel (2011) "ROCKY with rivets. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 27, 2011
84% Contagion (2011) "The scariest cinematic image of the year is a lingering shot of a grimy pole on a public bus. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
