2/10 29% The Family (2013) " A misfire from start to finish, The Family is unfunny, plodding and kind of depressing. Can someone take a hit out on it, please?" — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 12, 2013
8/10 64% August: Osage County (2013) " August: Osage County is a brutal, heart-wrenchingingly impressive film that only mildly suffers from its downsized running time." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 11, 2013
6/10 68% One Chance (2014) " A thin but perfectly pleasant biopic, One Chance will charm audiences in need of some cinematic comfort." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3/10 12% The Right Kind of Wrong (2014) " Pretty locales and an even prettier Ryan Kwanten don't make up for this painfully silly romcom that's more wrong than right." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 6, 2013
8/10 67% How I Live Now (2013) " This dystopian coming-of-age tale is an exciting--and occasionally brutal--depiction of war, familial connection and the harsh realities of growing up too soon." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 4, 2013
7/10 36% One Day (2011) " For everyone who's grown tired of the summer onslaught of superheroes, save-the-world plots and explosions, Hollywood finally offers some decent counter-programming in the form of the brainy romance One Day." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 28, 2013
7/10 77% The Debt (2011) " The Debt may have its flaws, but thanks to some strong performances and gripping moments, it's worth investing in." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 28, 2013
8/10 68% Wuthering Heights (2012) " Wuthering Heights is stunningly shot and beautifully acted. It puts you inside the minds of Cathy and Heathcliff in a way no other adaptation has done before." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
10/10 89% The Descendants (2011) " The Descendants manages to even surpass those stratospheric expectations most fans will have walking into the theatre." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
7/10 61% The Awakening (2012) " The Awakening glides ghost-like through its story, laying its own elaborate traps along the way." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
4/10 29% Machine Gun Preacher (2011) " With an exploitation-friendly title like Machine Gun Preacher you'd think this movie would be the soul brother of Hobo With A Shotgun. Unfortunately, that is not so." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
8/10 85% The Ides of March (2011) " George Clooney officially passes the impish matinee idol torch to Ryan Gosling in this smart, hella-cool (does Clooney waste his time on any other kind of movie these days?) political drama." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
7/10 68% A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) " While there's no mistaking a Harold & Kumar movie for something that's going win an Oscar, movie fans shouldn't be so quick to dismiss these 21st century incarnations of Cheech and Chong as purely shallow entertainment." — We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2013
5/10 51% The Iron Lady (2012) " As it stands, The Iron Lady isn't doing any favours for history, feminism or at the very least fans of biopics, but it is a clear victory for Streep. It's just too bad that the film doesn't do her spot-on performance any justice." — We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 29, 2013
2/10 4% Abduction (2011) " Card-carrying members of Team Jacob may approve, but Abduction won't help turn Lautner into the action star he clearly aspires to be." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 24, 2012
2/10 41% Straw Dogs (2011) " The best that can be said about Straw Dogs is that it's watchable: and that's due to Alexander Skarsgard's stellar abs." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2012
5/10 35% The Thing (2011) " The fact that The Thing falls flat is proof positive that unlike the film's industrious alien, parasitic remakes can't easily carbon copy the host." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2012
7.5/10 27% Dirty Girl (2011) " Dirty Girl is an off beat gem that's well worth the bidding war it inspired at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2012
5/10 24% The Three Musketeers (2011) " The film may have its fun moments but this adaptation does nothing more than make these Three Musketeers look like a bunch of Stooges." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2012
1/10 3% Jack and Jill (2011) " Jack and Jill is an ill-advised, too long Saturday Night Live skit gone wrong. It's a cartoon. It's a way for all involved to pad their pockets and a way for Sandler to keep his friends employed. " — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2012
7.5 63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) " You'll definitely laugh and it's hard to resist the adorableness factor of Blunt and Segel." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 17, 2012
7.5/10 84% Contagion (2011) " Contagion may be a case of feverishly good filmmaking (and an excellent, if slightly more high brow, addition to the disaster movie genre), but ultimately it will leave you with little besides an admiration for Soderbergh's artistry." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
10/10 93% Drive (2011) " Nicolas Winding Refn's atmosperic direction, Gosling's sheer presence and a soundtrack that's perfection make Drive a fantastic film." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 46% Happy Feet Two (2011) " Happy Feet Two is a fun uplifting family flick that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
6/10 77% A Dangerous Method (2011) " A Dangerous Method is beautifully crafted and abundant with subtext but it's also sterile, dramatically turgid and at times, kind of a drag." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
9/10 91% Arthur Christmas (2011) " Arthur Christmas is a smart, funny, heartwarming story that will have you smile from ear-to-ear for the film's duration." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
10/10 79% Shame (2011) " Shame is an elegant, art-tinged character study that that will hover in your psyche for a long time after you see it." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
9.5/10 98% The Artist (2011) " The Artist is apparently Hazanavicius' dream project and it's truly inspiring to see a filmmaker take such a big risk in this day and age: especially when it pays off so big." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
5/10 60% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) " As it stands, with its engrossing-yet-obscured-by-over-the-top-CGI plot, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is little more than elementary, my dear moviegoer." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) " Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo manages to build on the original film without copying it, reinventing it or ignoring it." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
4.5/10 66% We Bought a Zoo (2011) " In short, We Bought a Zoo is all bore and no roar, and while it's certainly not the worst of Crowe's career, it's far from earning its stripes as a worthy successor to his earlier films." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
5/10 77% War Horse (2011) " It's too bad that Steven Spielberg's latest film War Horse doesn't quite live up to the example set by its majestic titular character." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
10/10 94% Pariah (2011) " Pariah tells an involving story that's both deftly relatable and urgently progressive." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
5/10 80% Haywire (2012) " Haywire is a Bourne Identity-inspired spy vs. spy action flick that isn't quite the kick in the head it should be." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
7/10 56% In the Land of Blood and Honey (2011) " In The Land Of Blood And Honey is a compelling story that is enhanced by the well-researched portrayal of the politics behind the conflict and the ways that people were made to cope." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
4/10 32% Man on a Ledge (2012) " Sam Worthington's Man On A Ledge is an absolute mess of a film, from start to finish. It's silly, dumb and ridiculous." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 79% The Grey (2012) " The Grey is a cool action film with a heart and soul, which is refreshing to see in a January release." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 66% The Woman in Black (2012) " Whether or not The Woman in Black provides those chills is entirely up to whatever particular type of creep-out sends shivers down your spine." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
5.5/10 29% The Vow (2012) " Thankfully The Vow spares us from all of that shakey-camera'd nonsense, but that's about all it spares us from." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
7/10 26% This Means War (2012) " In a turn of events that utterly defies the terrible trailer that's been making the rounds for the last few months, This Means War actually proves to be an agreeably dim-witted combo of testosterone-fuelled action and an estrogen-friendly love story." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
7.5/10 82% Goon (2012) " Goon will definitely provide an entertaining diversion from the February blahs and may even leave you cheering for more." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
7/10 28% Project X (2012) " Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
6/10 67% Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012) " As it stands, the best elements of the film become mired in the unwelcome narrative muck, branding Salmon Fishing in the Yemen the one that got away." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 67% Friends With Kids (2012) " Ultimately, Friends With Kids is an unconventional family drama that uses conventional romantic comedy clich├ęs to make its point." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
2/10 0% A Thousand Words (2012) " A thousand words? Try two words: stay away. Murphy does a pretty good job keeping up with the various indignities heaped on him but the movie as a whole ends up sinking." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
5.5/10 51% Being Flynn (2012) " Being Flynn is too dark to appeal to the faint of heart and too safe to draw in those looking for an honest portrayal of a troubled father-son relationship." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
4.5/10 43% Casa de mi padre (2012) " Unfortunately for Casa de Mi Padre there's a very fine line between smart-stupid and slapdash-stupid." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
8/10 84% The Hunger Games (2012) " Despite a few minor problems, The Hunger Games proves to be a promising start to what will no doubt become the next beloved Hollywood mega-series." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
9/10 85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) " This adrenaline-fuelled spectacle of flying fists, whirling kicks and spurting blood will leave you breathless, exhilarated and shouting for more." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 15, 2012
3/10 49% Mirror Mirror (2012) " Mirror Mirror is an aesthetically fantastical yet ultimately tedious film that may occasionally please the tots in the audience. However, it will leave adults far less enchanted." — We Got This Covered
