Critics Consensus: Argo Is Certified Fresh
This week at the movies, we've got a daring escape (Argo, starring Ben Affleck and Alan Arkin); a tough teacher (Here Comes the Boom, starring Kevin James and Salma Hayek), frightening footage (Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke and Juliet Rylance); criminal cinephiles (Seven Psychopaths, starring Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken); and striking capitalists ( Atlas Shrugged: Part II, starring Samantha Mathis and Jason Beghe). What do the critics have to say? As a director, Ben Affleck is on a roll. With two Certified Fresh films (Gone Baby Gone and The Town) under his belt, critics say Affleck scores again with Argo, a tense, darkly comic thriller.

Total Recall: Christopher Walken's Best Movies
From junior soap star to Oscar-winning film actor, Saturday Night Live mainstay, and music video legend, Christopher Walken has carved out one of the most cheerfully inimitable career paths in Hollywood since making his screen debut nearly 60 years ago. This weekend, the amazingly prolific actor -- who's acted in nearly 30 films over the last 10 years alone -- pops up in Seven Psychopaths, so we decided to take the opportunity to take a fond look back at some of his most critically beloved performances. Break out your cowbells, it's time for Total Recall!

Colin Farrell's 10 Best Movies
Seemingly overnight at the turn of the century, Colin Farrell went from just another struggling actor to a major Hollywood star -- only to retreat into semi-obscurity less than a decade later, after cluttering his filmography with a handful of big-budget turkeys. But while misguided efforts like Daredevil and Miami Vice obscured Farrell's gifts, he remained capable of superlative work -- and he's proved it with a string of critically lauded appearances in recent films. The latest chapter in Farrell's reinvention is set to arrive with the forthcoming season of HBO's True Detective, in which Farrell has just been announced as one of the lead actors. With that in mind, we decided now would be the perfect time to take a look back at the critical highlights of an often underrated career. It's time for Total Recall!
