3/5 62% Salt (2010) " Aside from some poorly computerized Spider-Man-esque acrobatics in the third act, I don't think anything happens here that's any sillier than the average Hollywood spy blockbuster. Too bad nothing particularly interesting happens, either." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jul 23, 2010
5/5 86% Inception (2010) " As graphic novels and TV shows are churned up by the boatload, Nolan's vision of Inception feels like a defiant stand, folding a complex universe inside a 2 and a half hour movie just to prove you don't need the extra time and space." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jul 14, 2010
5/5 58% TiMER (2010) " Timer is an immensely enjoyable triumph that actually has a voice." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jul 14, 2010
4/5 81% Despicable Me (2010) " There's no better way to describe Despicable Me than "cute". It's almost unbearably cute." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jul 14, 2010
1.5/5 41% The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010) " In case any Disney executives are listening: Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow is your paydirt, fellas. In Nicolas Cage, you hired the one actor that might be able to out-crazy him, so why isn't there more madness to this method?" — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jul 14, 2010
1.5/5 53% Knight & Day (2010) " Knight and Day is a real slog, bogged down by an anemic script that needs to pick up the pace and some of the worst CG I can remember seeing in a big-budget movie." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 23, 2010
3/5 74% Micmacs (Micmacs à tire-larigot) (2010) " Quirk and whimsy, signifying nothing; Micmacs is the ultimate exercise in self-reflexiveness." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 17, 2010
3.5/5 80% Cyrus (2010) " Cyrus isn't quite the rousing experience I was hoping for the theoretical crossover between arthouse and frathouse, but it's a small-scale success that's at least worth a look." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 17, 2010
2.5/5 12% Jonah Hex (2010) " A villainous double-crossing traitor has robbed our hero of his soul, but the bigger plot afoot here is determining who sucked the life out of the film itself." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 17, 2010
5/5 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " On one hand, it isn't quite perfect, but at the same time, it is, with the film's almost non-stop high points easily blotting out the rare smudge on the movie's veneer." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 17, 2010
3/5 66% The Karate Kid (2010) " I was literally right on the verge of throwing up my hands and resigning to the fact that this was just a giant vanity project when Jackie Chan finally makes a serious entrance into the picture and saves it from itself." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 10, 2010
4/5 47% The A-Team (2010) " While you can't walk away from it without the stench of commerce filling your nostrils, you'll have a grin on your face all the same." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 10, 2010
3.5/5 73% Get Him to the Greek (2010) " Greek is basically the same formula [as Marshall], but the familiar structure is a little less bland, and the great one-liners are much, much funnier." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 3, 2010
0.5/5 74% Splice (2010) " The principal players should be embarrassed to have this movie on their resumes, offering only shrugs and emotionless smirks whenever anyone asks them what the hell they might have been thinking." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Jun 3, 2010
3.5/5 47% MacGruber (2010) " A nutsoid piece of niche entertainment that savors every last drop of its hard-R rating and tries valiantly to go to places MacGruber never would have been able to go on late-night television." — DVDTalk.com
Posted May 21, 2010
2.5/5 43% Robin Hood (2010) " I don't think that Robin Hood was forced onto the director's plate, but the movie shows Scott playing into (or too tired to fight off) the desires of focus groups and demographic surveys rather than actual audiences." — DVDTalk.com
Posted May 14, 2010
3.5/5 —— Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009) " Cabin Fever 2 comes dangerously close to being a worthwhile sequel." — DVDTalk.com
Posted May 13, 2010
3.5/5 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) " Iron Man 2 is a pretty good sequel to a very good original, and a lack of further development for its main characters is the movie's major weakness." — DVDTalk.com
Posted May 7, 2010
2/5 —— Peacock (2010) " It took quite a bit of patience on my part to make it through Peacock, and it's not because the movie is painfully inept, but because it has no focus or dramatic drive whatsoever." — DVDTalk.com
Posted May 6, 2010
3.5/5 86% Please Give (2010) " There are scenes in Please Give that are perfectly on-point and immensely satisfying, [but the movie feels] stretched to feature length with the application of major padding." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 29, 2010
3.5/5 15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) " I wouldn't say that this budgeted-up rehash is a great movie, or that it has anything on Craven's 1984 original, but at least Bayer keeps his gaze focused on the parts of the material that interest him." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 29, 2010
2.5/5 49% The Losers (2010) " There will be a lot of win/lose puns in reviews this week, but I don't think The Losers is either one. It's more like a participant." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 24, 2010
4/5 96% Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010) DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 16, 2010
4/5 76% Kick-Ass (2010) " While all of the spectacle is relatively enjoyable, it's two key moments of magic relating to heroes and how we project ourselves onto them that really soar." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 15, 2010
4.5/5 86% The Square (2010) " Both the script and direction conjure up the cold, clammy sweat of dread over and over again with a shocking amount of ease." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 11, 2010
2.5/5 67% Date Night (2010) " Carell and Fey may be funny "in" the movie, but the film doesn't actually support their comedy in any way, outside of providing a setting." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 8, 2010
3.5/5 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " I think Titans will play better on the small screen, where its flaws aren't so exaggerated, and viewers can make all the cheap popcorn they want." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Apr 4, 2010
3.5/5 51% Chloe (2010) " Egoyan's ideas are better than his payoffs." — DVDTalk.com
Posted Mar 26, 2010
3/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) " There are plenty of laughs in the movie, although most of them are not as satisfying as you'd hope." — DVDTalk.com
