85/100 77% A Dangerous Method (2011) "Exploding the era of the costume drama with both its style and its ideas, David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method pushes repression to its breaking point at every turn " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
73/100 90% Bernie (2012) "Very nearly a great American comedy with a profound thematic core... " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
33/100 69% Men in Black III (2012) "Not even a melodramatic last minute twist or a reminder of race relations from half a century ago can inspire us to feel much for this parade of cheap humor and intentionally gaudy special effects. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
72/100 99% The Interrupters (2011) "It's lazy critical shorthand to point out that good documentaries often feature better characterizations than even the best fiction films, but The Interrupters certainly justifies such a cliché. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
60/100 79% The Innkeepers (2012) "The pleasures here are small, but sure to be resonant for horror film fans. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
43/100 No Score Yet The Silent Scream (1980) "The Silent Scream is something less than a classic of its genre, but still manages to be worth a look for aficionados of the era's horror films. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
51/100 No Score Yet Freeheld "[Wade] is clearly a biased filmmaker, but Freeheld never for a moment pretends to be anything other than activist filmmaking, passionate about its cause. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
49/100 64% Dracula (1979) "Several horror scenes, notably those not involving Dracula himself, are genuinely creepy. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 11, 2012
61/100 65% The Pact (2012) "While The Pact hardly forges new ground for the genre, it comes about its scares honestly, without reliance upon gimmicks or cheap tactics. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 6, 2012
57/100 No Score Yet Chained for Life (1951) (2005) "[It] becomes something of a freak show. There's little here beyond the twins' unique condition to warrant viewing the film, which somewhat undercuts the overall message of assimilation. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 4, 2011
39/100 80% The Myth Of The American Sleepover (2011) "The narcoleptic, resigned tone that dominates The Myth of the American Sleepover doesn't make us regret what we've lost. It mostly implies that being young is a major bummer. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 4, 2011
76/100 No Score Yet The Baby "Less a horror film than an outright freak show, The Baby grows oddly hypnotic in its accumulation of oddity. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com

Posted Jul 19, 2011
32/100 68% Horrible Bosses (2011) "This moronic screenwriting through swearing does little to generate laughs and only would appear to represent creative freedom or boundary pushing to a cast used to working under television censorship laws. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 19, 2011
57/100 86% Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011) "Judged on its own terms, the movie is a better than average, if somewhat routine, horror effort. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 17, 2011
70/100 No Score Yet Moy drug Ivan Lapshin (My Friend Ivan Lapshin) (1984) "As "fifty years and five blocks" would imply, memory is viewed here as something slippery; almost tangible yet just out of reach. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 15, 2011
46/100 33% Kidnapped (2011) "Vivas, by generally refusing to cut, imbues Kidnapped with more gory details than the average thriller. The narrative cost at which this verisimilitude comes, however, seems a touch too high. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 15, 2011
57/100 72% We Are What We Are (2011) "If the resulting work ultimately fails to completely marry its disparate goals, it's to Grau's credit that he manages to make this slow-burning horror drama work as well as he does. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 14, 2011
62/100 85% The Yellow Sea (2011) "An epic noir thriller that contains no small amount of excitement, it suggests that Na might well be the best action director currently working in Korea. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 14, 2011
35/100 44% Yellowbrickroad (2011) "YellowBrickRoad not only offers a mystery with no solution (which isn't such a terrible thing by itself), but also a story with no clear sense of purpose. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 14, 2011
48/100 No Score Yet Someone I Touched "Cloris Leachman sings the somewhat inappropriate title song in a pleasant, lilting voice. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 14, 2011
46/100 48% Super (2011) "Ellen Page, who has a manic energy here that she's not shown before... Her too-brief time on screen energizes the film " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 13, 2011
12/100 3% Passion Play (2011) "Perhaps it's needless to say, but Rourke and Fox are a thoroughly mismatched screen couple, who exude zero screen chemistry with one another. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 13, 2011

59/100 59% Film socialisme (2011) "If Film Socialism is intended to be Godard's final coda, it's clear that he has a great deal left to say (even if most of us won't be able to understand what, exactly, it is that he's saying). " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 13, 2011
73/100 95% The Secret World of Arrietty (2012) "Arrietty offers the sort of quality storytelling that seems effortless yet is rarely achieved within the animated medium. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 12, 2011
30/100 35% Larry Crowne (2011) "With little to distract us from its half-hearted plotting and flimsy characterizations, Larry Crowne quickly turns into an abject failure, propped up only by its fading stars' fading charisma. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 12, 2011
61/100 No Score Yet Megan Is Missing (2011) "Megan Is Missing is entirely convinced of the terrors that lurk online and by the time it comes to its chilling conclusion most of its viewers will be as well. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com

Posted Jul 12, 2011
61/100 91% Public Speaking (2011) "Little seems sacred in Public Speaking, which makes it an invigorating reminder of a media culture that once was fueled by highbrow wit and provocation. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 12, 2011
43/100 82% Super 8 (2011) "Abrams panders to his audience and wrongly assuming that more explosions, more pathos, and more clichés will provide a path to more approval. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 12, 2011
53/100 42% Mother's Day (2012) "By the film's climax, it's laid waste to the majority of its cast, which will repulse some viewers, but stand as something of an attraction to others. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 12, 2011
54/100 No Score Yet Husk (2011) "Suspense is valued here over gore, and it must be noted that the brief final scene manages to be genuinely eerie. " ‐ MovieMartyr.com
