4/5 84% Beginners (2011) "Mike Mills has taken a particularly confusing and painful part of his own life and turned it into a moving expression of acceptance, compromise, and the struggle to overcome obstacles. " ‐ Reel Reviews

69% Turtle: The Incredible Journey (2011) Reel Reviews
Posted Jul 11, 2011
3/5 86% Submarine (2011) "A fresh, quirky, teen-angst drama that plays out somewhat like a Welsh Rushmore. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jun 13, 2011
2/5 84% The Tree of Life (2011) "Yes, Malick's Tree of Life is a beautiful film and its visuals will stay with you for a long time. There's no question he's a master visual filmmaker. But his storytelling must now be seriously examined. " ‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 63% True Legend (2011) "This gnarly beast -- written by To Chi-long -- is epic in scope " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 30, 2011
4/5 65% Hobo With a Shotgun (2011) "Hobo with a Shotgun certainly delivers on its promises of excess. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 30, 2011
5/5 90% Bridesmaids (2011) "Bridesmaids is not a movie for those looking for a pleasant, uneventful night out at the movies. Yes, it's touching. And yes, it resonates with a heart of gold. But it's also awkward, raunchy, and disgusting. Just like real life. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 16, 2011
2/5 15% Something Borrowed (2011) "We're never given any legitimate reason why Rachel would consider the self-absorbed Darcy such a dear friend for so many years. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 9, 2011
2/5 48% Super (2011) "Yes, Super is dark, twisted, funny, and insolent, but finding success by putting an audience in an uncomfortable place is a tricky gimmick to pull off with success. The maneuver worked in Kick-Ass, not so much in Super. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 25, 2011
4/5 55% The Conspirator (2011) "Historians and lovers of fascinating storytelling about little-known historical events will be captivated by the powerful and true story about America then and now. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 18, 2011
4/5 71% Hanna (2011) "Artfully photographed and cleverly themed, the simple story is elevated by director Joe Wright who combines elements of a James Bond adventure thriller, and an innocent coming-of-age story, framing it all within the structure of a fairy tale. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 11, 2011
5/5 94% Win Win (2011) "Win Win is an all-around solid, well-written, brilliantly acted film that challenges and entertains. It's a no-lose proposition. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 4, 2011
3/5 78% Mooz-lum (2011) "Poignant, relevant, and often quite moving in its characterizations. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 4, 2011
4/5 83% The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) "The Lincoln Lawyer mines most of its success from a talented stable of actors, especially that of lead Matthew McConaughey. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 26, 2011
35% Battle: Los Angeles (2011) "Too caught up in trying to be a no-nonsense, Marine-recruitment war movie than on being an entertainment vehicle. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 18, 2011
28% Take Me Home Tonight (2011) "This film succeeds (just barely) not by poking fun at the '80s but by embracing the charm of its endearing lead actors. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 11, 2011
3/5 28% Take Me Home Tonight (2011) "A film that succeeds (but just barely), not by poking fun at the decade of leg warmers, big hair, and even bigger cell phones, but rather by embracing the charm of its endearing lead actors. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 7, 2011
5/5 82% Four Lions (2010) "The amount of edge to this edgy comedy and Morris's chutzpah for demanding that the film's tone and its uneasy ending remain intact throughout the film's financing. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 28, 2011
80% Barney's Version (2011) "Paul Giamatti once again bringing sweetness, compassion and lovability to a miserable cad of a character is a beautiful thing to see. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 19, 2011
4/5 80% Barney's Version (2011) "While sometimes a little scatter-brained and occasionally a bit uneven, this wise, witty character piece feels much lighter and breezier than it actually is. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 14, 2011
4% The Roommate (2011) "This almost straight knock-off of 'Single White Female' is told in a colorless, A-to-Z manner with very little suspense, no clever twists, and no visual style. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

92% Another Year (2010) "An unassuming little masterpiece. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 5, 2011
5/5 92% Another Year (2010) "Downbeat, slow, calculated and muted, Leigh's slice-of-life film often just lies there, studying a facial wrinkle, an empty wine glass, or a ripened fruit in the garden. But the linger displays a vividly intelligent knowledge of filmmaking. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 31, 2011
4/5 67% The Company Men (2011) "It's so well acted and constructed in such a manner it allows viewers the opportunity to absorb the concept of job loss, and more closely sympathize with those affected. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 24, 2011
5/5 88% Blue Valentine (2010) "It's this slow grinding down of the gears of marriage that Cianfrance brings so realistically to the big screen, aided by the heartfelt performances of Gosling and Williams that'll surely garner recognition come Oscar time. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 24, 2011

Posted Jan 17, 2011
2/5 88% White Material (2010) "While we get the idea Denis knows what she's doing with the metaphor of racial recompense in her movie, whether or not she "gets" the idea of fleshy, full-bodied characters grounded in a sense of viewer compassion is still up in the air. " ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 17, 2011
95% The King's Speech (2010) "The film begins to crackle with life the moment Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth first appear on screen together. Their playful banter offsets the story's gloomy backdrop. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 20, 2010
20% The Tourist (2010) "Two of Hollywood's most glamorous and cherished Hollywood heartthrobs team up for what will likely go down as one of the year's most disappointing misfires. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
