3/5 64% The Campaign (2012) Movies.com
Posted Jan 22, 2013
2/5 18% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) Movies.com
Posted Jan 22, 2013
4/5 68% Ted (2012) " At times I laughed so hard I thought I would bust a capillary somewhere." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
3/5 86% Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) " Full of images that weave, fade, and flicker among each other, it's visually one of the most beautiful of the year, holding you in the palm of its tiny child-sized hand, floating through the chaos. " — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
3/5 80% Magic Mike (2012) " I was gunning for Showgirls only as Show Boys. Instead director Steven Soderbergh did something normal and classy, which are two words I associate with his other films and did not want to describe this film. " — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
2.5/5 30% Total Recall (2012) " There's plenty of bright, shiny stuff to look at and impressive punches and kicks, but the movie never gets fun." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
3/5 51% Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012) " Wimpy Kid doesn't need to use seizure-inducing, bright, shiny tricks to distract you from the thin plot, like disco dance floors and rats being hurled off of cruise ships in 3D." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
1.5/5 17% The Watch (2012) " Cover Your Eyes" — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
3.5/5 42% Step Up Revolution (2012) " Step Up Revolution is an exercise in extremes--when the characters aren't busy crying over the same ol', same ol', they're dancing in some of the most unique, exciting setups ever produced that will make your eyes pop out of your head." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
4/5 88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " The last act of the film delivers in a shocking way. What comes before it is imperfect, but since we're talking about Nolan here, it's still worth seeing, discussing, and then seeing again." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
1.5/5 37% Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) " Let's make this one extinct." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012

3.5/5 76% Alps (2012) " This cinematic experience was weirdly fascinating." — Movies.com
Posted Aug 7, 2012
2.5/5 51% Savages (2012) " It's better than Alexander or Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, but it's no return to form." — Movies.com
Posted Jul 13, 2012
1.5/5 21% Madea's Witness Protection (2012) " There are laughs in it, according to the enthusiastic audience I saw it with, but they're pretty spaced out and belong to Madea. What happens between them is unremarkable." — Movies.com
Posted Jul 6, 2012
3.5/5 78% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) " It's filled with pizzazz and sparkle, but not enough to distract from the real person under the cupcake skirt." — Movies.com
Posted Jul 6, 2012
4/5 73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) " Aside from the 3D animation looking fantastic and the film having a dark, complex feel to it that makes it feel more grown up, the primary reason worth watching is Andrew Garfield." — Movies.com
Posted Jul 5, 2012
3.5/5 78% Brave (2012) " Look out William Wallace -- Scotland has a new face, and she has a beautifully Brave-heart." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 22, 2012
2.5/5 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) " It relies solely on the gimmick that it's funny to have an ex-President using a silver-coated axe to fight mythical creatures. There's nothing else there." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 22, 2012
3.5/5 35% Lola Versus (2012) " Every time I walk out of a movie with Greta Gerwig in it, such as Damsels in Distress, Greenberg, and especially Arthur, I think, "You know what would have made that movie better? More Greta Gerwig."" — Movies.com
Posted Jun 15, 2012
3/5 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " If the idea of listening to these iconic songs while sensing that you're about to see jazz hands break out at any second makes you start banging your head, then fork over your hard-earned money to see this." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 15, 2012
3.5/5 20% That's My Boy (2012) " Of course, it's no Punch Drunk Love, but you gotta pay the bills somehow. I get it." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 15, 2012
4/5 79% Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012) " This movie is so funny and sweet that it's official: this series actually gets better with each installment." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 8, 2012
3.5/5 73% Prometheus (2012) " For all of the things that are familiar and give you an immediate understanding as to what story you're watching as it unfolds, there's plenty to drink in." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 8, 2012
1/5 28% Bel Ami (2012) " Pattinson is doing something that should be deliciously wicked and unique, but it somehow manages to be completely predictable in its unpredictability." — Movies.com
Posted Jun 8, 2012
5/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) " I normally end up liking Wes Anderson's films, but I love this one." — Movies.com
Posted May 25, 2012

Posted May 25, 2012
3/5 57% The Dictator (2012) " There are plenty of great jokes in here, mostly because of Cohen's complete lack of fear about inciting the anger of the entire world." — Movies.com
Posted May 18, 2012
1/5 22% What to Expect When You're Expecting (2012) " Drag a guy to this one and he'll never forgive you." — Movies.com
Posted May 18, 2012

Posted May 18, 2012
2/5 37% Dark Shadows (2012) " Sigh, and I had such high hopes." — Movies.com
Posted May 11, 2012
3.5/5 68% God Bless America (2012) " Leave it to the guy whose first film was about an alcoholic, womanizing clown to make you question the morality of our world." — Movies.com
Posted May 10, 2012
3/5 29% Girl In Progress (2012) " Even in all its movie-cuteness, Girl in Progress keeps its feet on the ground just enough to keep you watching." — Movies.com
Posted May 10, 2012
4/5 90% Bernie (2012) " Jack Black has never been so good." — Movies.com
Posted May 4, 2012
3/5 74% Sound of My Voice (2012) " I am confident in saying that Marling's future films will be every bit as mystical and thought-provoking as these past two, which is great. But ultimately, I have a ceiling when it comes to blurred lines." — Movies.com
Posted May 4, 2012
0.5/5 4% A Little Bit Of Heaven (2012) " This movie turns into a total bummerfest that isn't sad enough to make me cry or funny enough to make me giggle." — Movies.com
Posted May 4, 2012
4.5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) " The movie that all of those iconic comic book characters deserve." — Movies.com
Posted May 4, 2012
2.5/5 63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) " It's just not quite funny enough to justify its length. Something is just off." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 27, 2012

1/5 38% Detention (2012) Movies.com
Posted Apr 20, 2012
4/5 51% The Three Stooges (2012) " Although I am still bewildered by it, enjoying this movie has inspired me to revisit the original material. It's making me chuckle just as much. Could it be that I had to mature a little in order to enjoy such juvenile pleasures? Man, am I confused." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 13, 2012
0.5/5 38% Lockout (Unrated) (2012) " It's the cinematic equivalent of Paris Hilton." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 13, 2012
3.5/5 83% Comic-Con: Episode IV - A Fan's Hope (2012) " Morgan Spurlock's documentaries are like the gateway drug for people who can get addicted to sitting in front of hours and hours of Frederick Wiseman docs, immersing themselves in very detailed worlds that lack a clear agenda." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 13, 2012
3/5 75% Damsels in Distress (2012) " I knew better than to expect things to come to a satisfying end, but at least the ride there is fun -- you never know what razor-edged and hilarious things the characters are going to say next." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 13, 2012
4.5/5 92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) " This movie gives me faith that Hollywood is actually willing to do something outside the box in the name of entertainment." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 13, 2012
3.5/5 82% Goon (2012) " Goon skates just far enough away from the normal "guy overcomes adversity to achieve his dreams" story to make it an entertaining watch." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 6, 2012
2/5 25% Wrath of the Titans (2012) " Paying the extra bucks to see this in 3D is a poor investment, as the effects are, once again, unimpressive." — Movies.com
Posted Apr 6, 2012
4/5 84% The Hunger Games (2012) " For a PG-13 movie, it gave me all the intensity of an R-rated one, making me feel like our little kid's movies are all grow'd up." — Movies.com
Posted Mar 23, 2012
