The Man With the Iron Fists (2012)
"Oh, how 'The Man With the Iron Fists' longs to be 'Kill Bill.' It isn't, but its environments, blood-letting and martial arts, along with an interesting score and soundtrack, make no bones about its filmmakers being Quentin Tarantino devotees. "

The Iron Lady (2012)
"Although this is an interesting movie, the character outshines the screenplay. That's not surprising considering that Meryl Streep is earning acclaim for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 'Iron Lady.' "
Joyful Noise (2012)
"Sort of a homespun 'Glee' for audiences with walks of faith, 'Joyful Noise' is truly that, featuring a soundtrack that's infectious. And believe it or not, this gospel-tinged musical covers almost all genres, from Paul McCartney to Kirk Franklin. "
"t's not the Tom Cruise vehicle that's playing in the auditorium next door. Still, 'Contraband' is an entertaining heist flick. Based on an Icelandic movie, it's an enjoyable exercise in eluding capture. "
The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
"With gorgeous animation and action typical of its director, Steven Spielberg brings a comic strip to the big screen - in 3-D, no less. 'Tintin' has a lot in common with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and other fanciful Spielbergian adventures. "
The Devil Inside (2012)
"Gentle reader, be prepared for a shock."The Devil Inside" is pure fiction. I know about the advertising campaign and that it's supposed to be based on a true story, but it's not. It has a screenwriter, director and everything, even professional actors. "
"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" will leave its mark on you. Dark, brutal and intriguing, this version is as troubling and memorable as its Swedish counterpart. Its disturbing tone begins in the opening credits and continues to the last frame. "
War Horse (2011)

My Week with Marilyn (2011)
We Bought a Zoo (2011)
"We Bought a Zoo," based on a true story, is an outstanding show that could, and should, bring in herds of viewers. It centers on a man who really did buy a zoo with 200 animals, on his children and on the staff that became their second family. "
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
"'Reach for the skies' has a whole new meaning now. The science-fiction Western 'Cowboys & Aliens' is an entertaining, genre-blending romp. It's a serious movie, too - a drama with comedic moments - and that makes it all the more exciting. "

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011)

30 Minutes or Less (2011)
Final Destination 5 (2011)

The Help (2011)
La Rafle (2012)
Conan the Barbarian (2011)
"It would be barbaric to say this is the worst movie of the year. That certainly isn't the case. 'Conan the Barbarian' is, however, a second-rate remake, no more and no less. It's a far cry from the 1980s Arnold Schwarzenegger film. "
Fright Night (2011)
"Just because it's more than 25 years old doesn't mean a movie needs to be remade. The 1985 movie 'Fright Night' is still enjoyable and quite entertaining. Now here's an above-average remake that adds a few changes, along with 3-D. "
One Day (2011)
"Clever and strange, 'Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D' is a psychedelic action movie that will boggle and entertain the minds of adults and kids alike. If you like wordplay, you will like it all the more for the witty dialogue. "
