3/5 70% Les Misérables (2012) " As Fantine, musical theater's favorite emo chick, Hathaway blows away whatever else is supposed to be going on." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 52% Promised Land (2013) " ...neither a firebrand nor a puppyish Oscar-chaser. It's becalmed, downright mellow at times." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
5/5 88% Django Unchained (2012) " ...the time always flies, and Tarantino gives us a lot of movie for our money." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 81% The Impossible (2012) " Technically impeccable, The Impossible gives the brutal caprice of nature its due, never romanticizing it or demonizing it." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
5/5 93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) " Bigelow has directed excellent movies before, but this deserves to be remembered as the film that established her as a master." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 —— Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part Two (2013) " It's rated PG-13, as was its predecessor, but it's full of gore and pain and trauma...A worthy finale." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 80% Warm Bodies (2013) " The movie doesn't stand out much in memory - nothing in it really pops - but it's enjoyable while it lasts." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 —— Night of The Living Dead: Reanimated (2010) " This experiment's charm is hard to deny. " — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
4/5 55% Would You Rather (2013) " Jeffrey Combs is pretty much the reason to see this (or just about any) film." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
1/5 16% The Last Exorcism Part II (2013) " We get this pallid, waifish film with a safe PG-13, which allows for no nastiness, no filthiness, and one lonely F-bomb. I remember when demon flicks used to be dangerous and shocking." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
3/5 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) " Franco, grinning and smirking his way through his performance, can't compete with the witches." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
5/5 44% The Limits of Control (2009) " ...a Zen gangster film, a mandala that scatters itself at the end. Its very quietude and uneventfulness force you into the moment every moment..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 13, 2013
2/5 51% This is 40 (2012) " Who thought it was a good idea to take the two most irritating characters in 'Knocked Up' and devote a two-hour-and-thirteen-minute movie to them?" — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jan 22, 2013
4/5 37% Dark Shadows (2012) " It turns into a bit of a mess towards the finish line, but at least it's a fun mess, and if you're looking to Tim Burton for narrative tidiness you must be thinking of another Tim Burton." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
2/5 57% The Dictator (2012) " By now, what looked like good dirty fun, a funhouse mirror pointed at America, has calcified into easy shtick." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 70% Men in Black III (2012) " The hip, knowing backdrop of these films - their winking acknowledgment that what you suspect about aliens is true - is more interesting than the run-of-the-mill plots scampering around in front of it." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 73% Prometheus (2012) " The movie wasn't giving my brain much of a workout, but my eyes got a nice buzz. Prometheus is straight-up gorgeous..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
2/5 48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) " Dear god, is this thing setting us up for a sequel in which Kristen Stewart has to negotiate yet another love triangle?" — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) " I go to a Spider-Man movie to see the guy duke it out with powerful bad guys. I'm simple that way. I don't need a welter of convolutions." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
4/5 51% Savages (2012) " This is by no means Oliver Stone's best work. But it's his best work in well over a decade." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " Technically, The Dark Knight Rises is a thick leatherbound volume with gilded pages, though flipping through it yields a story about a big bad bald man doing eeevil things until a vigilante with pointy ears comes to the rescue." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
5/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) " In the summer of big, expensive superhero flicks, Moonrise Kingdom evokes awe, wonder and the magic of escapism in a much smaller and more precious way." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
2/5 30% Total Recall (2012) " Wiseman makes mildly pretty films, full of blues and grays and lens flares, but they're the definition of bland." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 55% The Bourne Legacy (2012) " Unless America is really that stuck on Matt Damon in the Bourne franchise, I see no reason that Renner's work here shouldn't make him a star." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
5/5 76% Premium Rush (2012) " The kind of low-expectation late-summer film that can all too often fall under the radar but delivers more honestly and forcefully than most of its warm-weather predecessors." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
2/5 40% The Possession (2012) " The movie is well-appointed if not terribly well thought-out." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
0/5 26% 2016: Obama's America (2012) " 2016: Obama's America comes to seem like clownish alarmist speculation taking place in an echo chamber of talking heads." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 31% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) " It's a funny thing about Jovovich as Alice: she gives the character just enough personality, but not enough to break the somber apocalyptic mood." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 100% Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 (2012) " ...this first half is essentially throat-clearing before the operatic finale. The pacing seems abrupt and rapid..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
4/5 93% Looper (2012) " The movie is morally murky, to put it lightly, and that's a bit refreshing; we're made to think about why we want the protagonists to achieve their goals." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " Disney should've had more faith in this premise back in 1984, when it mattered, instead of shocking it back to a bigger life now..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
4/5 96% Argo (2012) " This may be the most geek-friendly movie that never did the rounds at Comic-Con." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 24% Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) " The eerie inertia and starkness of the past films' imagery are mostly gone here, and that style is what had set this series apart for me." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
5/5 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) " Cloud Atlas is never boring; I checked the time at one point, saw that we had about an hour to go, and settled back, relaxed and happy to get more." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 49% The Man With the Iron Fists (2012) " The movie is undeniably colorful and action-packed, and gorier than a slaughterhouse floor. But something's missing." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
4/5 92% Skyfall (2012) " Skyfall isn't quite a throwback to the absurd thrills of the 007 films of old, but it does inject some fun back into the franchise." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
48% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) " It's been a sappy and largely uneventful ride, and I welcome The Hunger Games taking its place in girls' hearts, but let's not pretend there haven't been far worse film series." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 62% Hitchcock (2012) " The Ed Gein bits seem like pretentious filler, and a lot of Hitchcock feels padded, though it's only 98 minutes." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 17, 2012
3/5 68% Ted (2012) " MacFarlane, whose Ted sounds a lot like Peter Griffin on his show Family Guy, also co-wrote and directed Ted, so expect a lot of pop-culture references and random gags. Some of them hit, some don't." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jul 2, 2012
2/5 56% Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) " Often, the film seems to tiptoe up to something potentially scary or disturbing and then backs away fast." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jun 25, 2012
4/5 —— Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe (2011) " Really, this is the sort of lightweight adventure we should be seeing Bruce Campbell in much more often..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jun 22, 2012
3/5 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " Feels like a made-for-VH1 movie." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jun 18, 2012
5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) " Overall, this is as smooth and sprightly a franchise machine as we're likely to get this summer; even at two hours and twenty-three minutes it goes like lightning." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted May 6, 2012
5/5 84% Contagion (2011) " Before Contagion is anything else, it's a master class in filmmaking - shooting, editing, making a movie move." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
4/5 94% Moneyball (2011) " A fine, strong, adult movie, and its theme can easily apply to any number of other walks of life." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
2/5 35% The Thing (2011) " Gets the externals but can't duplicate the authentic chill and isolation of the original." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
4/5 68% Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) " In the moments that count, those silent wolf-hour compositions of gathering dread, the franchise has earned a place of pride in horror history." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
4/5 50% The Rum Diary (2011) " Of obvious interest to Thompson acolytes and of no obvious interest to anyone else. As a fan of Thompson and Robinson, I enjoyed the film's laid-back shagginess." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
2/5 69% A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) " What started as a beautiful one-off, extended in a pretty decent sequel, has now grown gray at the edges." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 30, 2012
3/5 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) " As a movie, this isn't terrible; none of them have been, really. Each film has gotten a director who has tried to do something simple and honest with Meyer's tormented material." — eFilmCritic.com
