Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
B+ 90% Bernie (2012) " Bernie delivers an abundance of belly laughs, but at its center is a confounding act committed by a man too beloved to be hated and a community too passionate to think clearly." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 8, 2013
B+ 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " Tim Burton's Frankenweenie embodies the excitement, innocence, awkwardness and imagination of childhood." — Austin American-Statesman

4.5/5 94% The Sessions (2012) " The Sessions belongs completely to Hawkes, who disappears into the role of Mark O'Brien, delivering a stunning performance that illuminates what it means to be a whole person." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 4, 2013
4.5/5 92% Skyfall (2012) " The film serves as a trip back to the beginning of the 50-year-old cinematic legend and the promise of a golden future with Craig in the role of 007." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3.5/5 93% Looper (2012) " Despite its confusing logic and ornate storyline, Looper still grabs the audience with the raw emotional storyline on the farm and the constant popping back and forth in time. It's a head-scratching ride, but a fun one nonetheless." — Austin American-Statesman

B- 36% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) " Murray disappears into his role as FDR, blending Lothario charm with professorial cool." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 21, 2012
B- 51% This is 40 (2012) " Those tensions and the way the couple talk about them -- both comically and seriously -- give the movie its heart, but Apatow is easily distracted by the desire to cram in more jokes." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 20, 2012
C+ 50% In Our Nature (2012) " The characters in this family drama are not given enough backstory or nuance to make their problems feel real, and none of the characters warrants much interest or compassion." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 13, 2012
4/5 91% Holy Motors (2012) " It may be the weirdest and most challenging movie to open in Austin this year. It's also oddly moving." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 7, 2012
1.5/5 37% The Collection (2012) " The Collection never hits audiences in the stomach with any immediate sense of danger, and the dialogue and most of the performances feel entirely too campy for the movie to actually be taken seriously. Maybe that is the point, but I don't think so." — Austin American-Statesman

3.5/5 75% Killing Them Softly (2012) " The movie calls to mind ominous Scorsese heavies menacing with their fearless gravitas and quick-mouthed Tarantino featherweights exchanging verbal barbs in a slowly enclosing ring." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 30, 2012
A 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) " Speaking of Oscars, the great DeNiro is great once again here." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 21, 2012
B- 90% Lincoln (2012) " [Day-Lewis] brings humanity and warmth to a man too often made static by history." — Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 21, 2012
B- 87% Life of Pi (2012) " An engaging and exciting tale and a magnificent achievement of visual storytelling that will likely be held up as a model for what can be achieved through the marriage of imagination and technology." — Austin American-Statesman
