3/4 49% Rédemption (2013) " Jason Statham is arguably the leading action star of his generation, but with Redemption, the feature directorial debut from talented screenwriter Steven Knight, he attempts to expand his range for the first time since The Bank Job." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 28, 2013
3/4 65% The Heat (2013) " An action comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy as odd-couple cops that rivals Goodfellas for its use of F-bombs and Lethal Weapon for its appealing chemistry." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 27, 2013
3/4 78% Monsters University (2013) " Partly because it's a prequel, Monsters University is one of the few films from the gigantically successful studio that fails to deliver an emotional payoff." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 21, 2013
3.5/4 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " The Bling Ring is something new from the Lost in Translation director. It continues her ongoing portraits of teen alienation, but it's also full of big laughs." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 14, 2013
1/4 38% The Purge (2013) " Sadly, thanks to a ridiculous premise, ugly cinematography, one-dimensional characters, and indecipherable editing, it fails on both counts." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 6, 2013
2.5/4 50% Now You See Me (2013) " Now You See Me never comes up with an ending that justifies the incessant misdirections that make up the bulk of the film." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 30, 2013
2.5/4 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " [Lin] relies on a hyper-edited style that gives you the feeling of frantic action, but he does have the good sense to slow things down ever so slightly when something really insane is going to happen so that you can gawk, laugh, and marvel." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 23, 2013
3/4 93% Frances Ha (2013) " Frances Ha is the work of an artist in love, and in Baumbach's case, it's not clear that love is his most constructive muse." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 17, 2013
4/4 87% What Maisie Knew (2013) " Most movies about divorce and fractured families play up the tumultuous melodrama, but What Maisie Knew goes for something much quieter and more profound. It's a subtly ambitious film that's smartly written, beautifully acted, and perfectly directed." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 3, 2013
2.5/4 66% The Iceman (2013) " The script is so straight-ahead, and Shannon's performance is so forceful, that The Iceman doesn't offer any real insight into this monster, but if you just want to glimpse a character capable of genuine evil, it's effectively chilling." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 3, 2013
4/4 98% Mud (2013) " Set in Arkansas, Mud captures the rhythm of the South in a way few films do." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 26, 2013
4/4 45% To The Wonder (2013) " This approach to the material is so quintessentially late-period Malick that naysayers will accuse the man of parodying himself. In truth, he's come up with his purest vision -- and his most streamlined work since Badlands." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 12, 2013
3/4 78% 42 (2013) " Helgeland's film is square, but it's a really solidly built square -- the kind of square that can be used as a foundation for something sturdy and true." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 11, 2013
3/4 84% Upstream Color (2013) " Anybody haunted by Primer's creepy overtones will instantly recognize it as the work of the same director." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 5, 2013
1/4 15% Temptation (2013) " Tyler Perry is a moralist who doesn't have sense enough to engage us by making sin look like fun." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 1, 2013
3.5/4 81% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " A film this well-constructed, superbly acted, and thoughtfully humanistic is rare; it's the kind of movie many people say can't get made any more." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 29, 2013
2/4 38% Admission (2013) " Admission squanders its most interesting aspects, flattening them out into a tidy, dull narrative instead of running with their more outlandish aspects, or focusing deeper on the pain at the heart of the characters." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 22, 2013
2/4 70% The Croods (2013) " The real problem is the script. Not so much the dialogue, which is functional and occasionally humorous, but more the story itself." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 22, 2013
2/4 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) " The characters get little laughs in most of the scenes, but in the larger sense it never seems like there's anything at stake." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 14, 2013
2.5/4 28% 21 And Over (2013) " Lucas and Moore have written this story enough times that they know how to make it flow even when there are long gaps between laughs, and as directors they show a keen eye for casting." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 1, 2013
4/4 94% The King's Speech (2010) " Inspiring, funny, touching, and delivered with craftsmanship and artistry." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 16, 2013
4/4 98% The Artist (2011) " Writer/director Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist manages the trick of being both fearlessly loyal to an era of cinema that's long since passed and one of the few original motion pictures of its own time." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 15, 2013
1.5/4 12% Safe Haven (2013) " If Nicholas Sparks' name is enough to get you to pay to see a movie, Safe Haven probably won't disappoint, but if you're allergic to his patented brand of tear-jerking stay far, far away." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 14, 2013
3/4 83% Side Effects (2013) " The picture tickles you throughout with a sense of relentless unease; you know something is wrong, but can't figure out what it is until Soderbergh and Burns are ready to play out the characters' various endgames." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 8, 2013
3.5/4 37% Stand Up Guys (2013) " For a film about coming to terms with death, Stand Up Guys is funnier than you might expect, and never once sinks into sentimental treacle." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 4, 2013
2.5/4 4% Movie 43 (2013) " If you're interested in seeing Oscar winners, Tony winners, and a bunch of genuinely talented people act out the raunchiest, most inappropriate material you're likely to see this year, Movie 43 fits the bill." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 4, 2013
3/4 100% Resolution (2013) " One of the first things about Resolution that catches you off guard is the humor." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 25, 2013
2.5/4 28% Broken City (2013) " If you need a pithy, Twitter-ready review for Broken City it would be "Forget it Jake, it's not Chinatown."" — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 18, 2013
3.5/4 80% Haywire (2012) " A lean and vastly entertaining picture." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/4 86% Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) " In his willingness to ignore convention, Zeitlin does reveal a confidence that few first-time directors display. He's made a film that's the antithesis of Hollywood's summer mind-set." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3.5/4 93% Coriolanus (2011) " As good as all the men are, it's Vanessa Redgrave who steals the movie." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/4 82% Goon (2012) " It's the kind of small-budget comedy that earns your goodwill early and easily, even if it isn't breaking new ground or transcending its readily apparent monetary constraints." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/4 79% Ruby Sparks (2012) " Even with the draggy pacing, though, the actors and the central idea are so good that Dayton and Faris never lose us completely." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/4 90% Bernie (2012) " It's absolutely worth seeing for Black's skillful work, but if only the filmmaker had added some tension, more people would be interested in seeing such a genuinely great performance." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 8, 2013
99% Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2012) " The end result isn't just one of the best films of 2012, documentary or fiction, but a movie worthy of Jiro himself." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 7, 2013
2.5/4 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) " People who enjoy being immersed in his singular vision won't be disappointed at all." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 4, 2013
4/4 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) " A feel-good film filled with laughs and memorable performances, David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook leaves you so ecstatically happy that it might just be the most recommendable movie of 2012." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3.5/4 52% Promised Land (2013) " Promised Land actually delivers a compelling human drama along with its message." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3/4 70% Not Fade Away (2012) " Rock & roll is salvation, rebellion, fun, sex, and the greatest middle finger ever extended by one generation at another. If you actually believe all of that, even a little bit, David Chase's far-from-perfect Not Fade Away is hard to dislike." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3/4 93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) " That kind of ambition should be applauded, even if the movie as a whole never quite clears the very high bar it sets for itself." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 3, 2013
2.5/4 38% The Guilt Trip (2012) " While it doesn't break new ground, it will play well for all those who appreciate Streisand or want to be reassured that their adult children still love them." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Dec 21, 2012
3/4 63% Anna Karenina (2012) " It's hard to argue that tackling this story again was necessary, and this version can't be called definitive or revelatory. However, Wright has done an admirable job of investing this tale that's more than a century old with a modern sensibility." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Nov 30, 2012
4/4 90% Lincoln (2012) " It's a superior achievement for Kushner, and makes for one of the best of Spielberg's "serious" movies." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Nov 30, 2012
2.5/4 78% Flight (2012) " Flight isn't a bad movie, but it isn't a good one either." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Nov 1, 2012
1.5/4 25% Fun Size (2012) " The whole film plays like a made-for-cable holiday event -- it belongs on the small screen, not in a theater." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 26, 2012
2/4 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) " The result is a lot of sound and fury signifying a sentiment that could be printed on a fortune cookie." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 25, 2012
2.5/4 33% The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012) " What the movie needs is an element of fun -- or at least childlike wonder -- to balance out the foreboding gloom that hangs over every interaction." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 19, 2012
3/4 67% Lawless (2012) " Just as he did in his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, Hillcoat creates a very specific and unnerving sense of place in Lawless." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 19, 2012
2.5/4 51% Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012) " Dog Days doesn't have the emotional pull of the last installment in the franchise, but it's still a vast improvement over the irritating series opener." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 19, 2012
2/4 38% Here Comes the Boom (2012) " To paraphrase the quip that started the David Cross/Patton Oswalt feud, the script for Here Comes the Boom feels like something Vince Vaughn read and threw across the room -- where it promptly hit Kevin James in the head." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 19, 2012
4/4 94% The Sessions (2012) " With Ben Lewin's film The Sessions, Hawkes is given the biggest and juiciest leading role of his career, and he pulls it off with remarkable grace and humor." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
