Posted Feb 6, 2015
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 51% 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

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

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 69% 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
3/5 72% 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

Posted Dec 17, 2012
86% 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 75% 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 25% 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
