5/5 50% Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) " Este filme es tan bueno que me atrevería a decir que pudiera quitarle la racha invicta a Pixar con ‘Toy Story 3’ este año en los premios Oscar. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Oct 7, 2010
3.5/5 88% Let Me In (2010) " Hay elementos de terror que lo entretendrán a uno, como los miembros mutilados y sangre salpicando por todas partes. Si usted está buscando una buena película de terror con sustancia, 'Let Me In' tiene que ser su opción principal." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Oct 7, 2010
4/5 87% Buried (2010) " ‘Buried’ is perhaps one of the most emotionally uncomfortable films you will see this year. If Hitchcock were alive today, I truly do believe, he would have indulged in directing this film." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Oct 7, 2010
4.5/5 96% The Social Network (2010) " Although 'The Social Network' isn’t a masterpiece, this film will undoubtedly be the film that defines our generation, the zeitgeist of our times." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Oct 7, 2010
3/5 34% I Spit On Your Grave (2010) " Este filme no logra quebrantarlo a uno emocionalmente o cicatrizarlo como otros filmes lo han hecho." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Oct 7, 2010
4/5 94% The Town (2010) " The Town is not as enthralling as his first film 'Gone Baby Gone,' yet, it is perhaps one of the better films of the 2010. Come Oscar time, it wouldn't surprise me if it is elected to the ten best films of the year." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Sep 17, 2010
3/5 52% Devil (2010) " Stop it folks! Devil isn't a bad film. Devil serves its purpose as entertaining escapism and it does it well. It will make you cringe and twinge all while still subtly humoring you." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Sep 17, 2010
4.5/5 72% Machete (2010) " Machete tiene que ser una de las gran delicias prohibidas de lo que va el año. Desde su violencia cómica hasta sus delirantes excesos sexuales, esta cinta alcanza momentos de absoluto genio. Esta es una obra maestra dentro del genero de exploitation." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3/5 43% Robin Hood (2010) " If you're looking to entertain yourself, any imperfections the film might have are put aside for the high level entertainment value. I particularly left satisfied enough to recommend it. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
2.5/5 40% Letters to Juliet (2010) " 'Letters to Juliet' is for women who are looking for their prince charming or are not happy in their own relationship. If you female friend are in this situation, you're gonna love, love, love this film." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
2.5/5 9% Marmaduke (2010) " Marmaduke is what it is - a project using a familiar American brand name to make some money from it. Did it work? Not enough for me to tell you to run to the theater to see it. This is definitely a DVD property." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3.5/5 73% Get Him to the Greek (2010) " 'Get Him To The Greek' is perhaps in the top 3 best comedies of the year. It's competition is not as good. 'Greek' has much more likable and interesting characters and a mix of clever and low brow humor to titillate the senses." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
1.5/5 74% Splice (2010) " 'Splice,' is in this critic's opinion, one of the worst, if not arguably the worst movie of 2010. There are so many wrong things with it on so many levels I don't even know where to begin. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
4.5/5 80% Cyrus (2010) " Cyrus is one of the best comedies of 2010! If you are looking for a unconventional and clever comedy with superb performances, 'Cyrus' will not disappoint." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3.5/5 80% I Am Love (2010) " 'I Am Love' is one of the few showpieces of 2010. It is one you need to see if you love sweeping dramas." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
2/5 10% Grown Ups (2010) " Overall, I thought 'Grown Ups' would possess grown up R humor, but instead it delivers a family movie for adults with infantile jocularity. Not what I was expecting." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
4/5 53% Knight & Day (2010) " 'Knight and Day' is what summer Hollywood movies are all about - pure high wattage entertainment with likable superstars. This one qualifies as a must see in my book." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3.5/5 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) " 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,' is the best film of the series and it is indisputably the most entertaining of the three movies. It has depth, sexual tension,appealing special effects and entertaining drama. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
4.5/5 86% Inception (2010) " The premise is not a simple one to follow and it demands more focused attention than 90% of the films out there, but the payoff will be one of the great cinematic experiences of 2010 and perhaps the past decade. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3.5/5 40% Middle Men (2010) " If you want to see something under the radar filled with sex, drugs and more sex, Middle Men has to be on the top of your list. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
1/5 5% Vampires Suck (2010) " 'Vampire Sucks' is on my top 10 lists of one of the worst movies of the year." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
4/5 76% Nanny McPhee Returns (2010) " 'Nanny McPhee Returns' is perhaps the best live-action family film of the year. It is a delightful experience that adults will be able to enjoy this time around." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
3/5 51% The Switch (2010) " The Switch generates some occasional cheap laughs, but it is uneven. It feels generic. If two directors couldn't get this right, then its probably not worth the theatrical viewing. " — ShowBizCafe
Posted Aug 24, 2010
4/5 81% Solitary Man (2010) " Solitary Man is one of my favorite films of 2010. The movie reminds me of Ben Stiller's 'Greenberg', about a man who is trying to find meaning in life, except that Douglas is far better and much more appealing." — ShowBizCafe
Posted May 20, 2010
4/5 58% Shrek Forever After (2010) " 'Shrek Forever After' is the best of the series. The film is excellent. It combines witty comedy with drama, action and poignant moments." — ShowBizCafe
Posted May 20, 2010
3/5 51% Chloe (2010) " Atom Egoyan's new directorial work, is the lesbian version of Fatal Attraction. The acting is strong and the story, for 85% of its duration, is utterly enthralling... until it collapses at the very end in an hyperbolic mess." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 25, 2010
4/5 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) " This is a moving, charismatic 3D animated film that is sure to draw smiles, wonderment and a few tears from most of you. The voices couldn't have been better cast, the friendship themes are on mark and the 3D flight sequences are to applaud." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 25, 2010
2.5/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) " The R rated comedy 'Hot Tub Time Machine' deserved a better fate. Auds are left in limbo awaiting on hilarity that is saved for seldom occasions, as if there were rations of jokes dispersed for us to laugh at." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 25, 2010
2.5/5 51% Alice in Wonderland (2010) " Tim Burton's new phantasmagorical Real-3D remake of 'Alice in Wonderland' is shockingly a bore. All that eye-popping colorful imagery was just eye candy to sidetrack us from focusing on the anemic script adaptation." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 24, 2010
3.5/5 43% Brooklyn's Finest (2010) " Brooklyn's Finest es una muy buena drama policiaca que reúne maravillosas actuaciones, una historia apasionante y un final cautivante. La cinta posee similitudes a filmes como 'Crash' y 'Serpico', pero enredados con algunos giros inesperados." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 24, 2010
4/5 81% City Island (2010) " City Island is one of the more charming comedies to come out in a very long time and thus far this 2010. It is a magnetically crafted indie comedy that provides jokes worth laughing at and charming characters worth liking." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 24, 2010
4.5/5 86% Hubble 3D (2010) " How many times are you going to hear someone say that there is a film out there right now that has better 3D special effects than Avatar? Most likely you won't until you witness 'IMAX: Hubble 3D,' one of the most tantalizing 3D imagery ever." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 24, 2010
3/5 22% Repo Men (2010) " La primera hora de la nueva película de acción futurista 'Repo Men', uno de los filmes más violentos y sangrientos que he visto desde Ninja Assassins, es una lenta película, hasta agobiante, que te hará pedir tu reembolso." — ShowBizCafe
Posted Mar 24, 2010
3.5/5 53% Green Zone (2010) " Green Zone es la versión militar de la saga de películas de Jason Bourne. Se trata de un thriller político al estilo Tom Clancy con intensas secuencias de acción de alto calibre. Las actuaciones son excelentes, pero la acción es implacable." — ShowBizCafe
