Alex Cross (2012)
"With 'Alex Cross,' the script is filled with such a lack of suspense, that this cat-and-mouse film feels cliché and laughable. The team behind the camera didn't do Perry, in a non-Madea lead role, any justice. "
Pitch Perfect (2012)
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
Premium Rush (2012)
"This 'Sparkle' version shines for its powerful performances by Houston, Ejogo, and Mike Epps, who nearly steals the entire film. The film is still formulaic, but there's enough material to have an enjoyable evening's entertainment. "
Ruby Sparks (2012)
"While no one will ever mistake Zoe Kazan for Kelly LeBrock of 'Weird Science,' the former does posses a certain wit and charm in 'Ruby Sparks' that will delight those who, with a little imagination, are looking for a good lighthearted romantic comedy. "
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Madea's Witness Protection (2012)
"Tyler Perry brings the same persona that his fans come to expect, but the tone is fairly light on the laughs and short on the entertainment value. Madea's back, but Perry needs to write better material. "
Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
"When Michael Bay is unavailable to do the job, Peter Berg is the guy they called to direct. Sadly, if you needed a film to go along with the lame alien film Skyline, 'Battleship' is the perfect companion. "
Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
Think Like a Man (2012)
"The film is not only a great romantic and funny film, but it's destined to be a classic! The chemistry among the cast is beyond the charts. Everyone shines, from the leads to the supporting cast, and including those making cameos. "
The Hunger Games (2012)
A Thousand Words (2012)
"A far cry from the Oscar winning silent film The Artist, Murphy's A Thousand Words is sadly still one too many for an audience to take in.If you waited long enough for the film to come out, then you can wait a bit longer for it to appear on TV for free. "
Tyler Perry's Good Deeds (2012)
"Although the script is flawed and filled with melodramatic moments that warrant laughter, Perry's loyal fan base will be engaged by this "Pretty Woman" meets "The Pursuit of Happyness" mash and leave theaters entertained. "
Big Miracle (2012)
Dysfunctional Friends (2012)
Red Tails (2012)
"Despite the flaws many can pick out, 'Red Tails' is more about the journey this story took to get on the big screen. It's not about the acting, dialogue, or direction, but more about the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and their struggles to be heard. "
Underworld Awakening (2012)
"While there's plenty of action, blood and deaths, somehow the storyline, which connected the audience with the characters, got muddled along the way and with a lackluster 3D appearance, the film certainly isn't worth the time or money. "
"If there was ever a franchise that plays like a TV soap opera with a climatic ending that leaves the audience wanting more, it's this one. If you have seen the previous three films, then you go into 'Breaking Dawn - P1,' already hooked in from the start. "
Tower Heist (2011)
"Murphy delivers the goods as 'Heist' is an amusing take on a real life situation. Although his role as a ghetto thug who is used to teach normal folks the tricks of the trade is questionable, he brings the spark that keeps the laugh meter above par. "
Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)
"With phenomenal performances given by its key leads, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, the film works on multiple levels and can be considered as one of the best films of 2011. You don't have to a baseball to enjoy this film. It's pure, solid entertainment. "
Straw Dogs (2011)
"Nicolas Winding Refn's pulse pounding film, 'Drive,' is met with stunning adoration. If you walked out of a theater and someone asked, "How was the film?", the word "cool" would take on a new meaning! "
"The best way to describe the action packed film 'Colombiana' is to say to that it's mindless, unpretentious, very stylized, and entertaining. It's your typical B film brought to the big screen by the power and influence of Luc Besson. "
The Family Tree (2011)
Conan the Barbarian (2011)
Fright Night (2011)
"'Fright Night,' offers nothing new to the genre. Besides being too campy, the film, shown in 3D, lacks any arresting visuals and suspense. If you are looking to see a good "creepy neighbor" film, try Shia LaBeouf's 'Disturbia!' "
30 Minutes or Less (2011)
"With clever direction from Ruben Fleischer, leave it to the ensemble cast of Eisenberg, McBride, Ansari, Swardson, and scene stealer Pena to make '30 Minutes or Less' one of the funniest films of 2011. "
Final Destination 5 (2011)
The Help (2011)
Green Lantern (2011)
"The best way to describe his Reynolds' portrayal as Hal Jordan is 'wise-ass.' and with this film, his comedic skills should have been laid aside. Strong's performance as Sinestro is reason enough to see the film rather than Reynold's campy performance. "
Jumping the Broom (2011)
Madea's Big Happy Family (2011)
"'Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family' may inspire some to think whether Perry should put Madea to rest. The characters presented are degrading to women and an embarrassment to Perry's followers. "
Scream 4 (2011)
Sucker Punch (2011)
"'Sucker Punch' is a film filled with emptiness and a hodgepodge of other films, it's like watching an unofficial sequel to 'Showgirls' with some 'Kill Bill' and 'Battle LA' thrown into the mix. Avoid at all costs. "
Battle: Los Angeles (2011)
Tron Legacy (2010)
"Christina Aguilera's film debut in 'Burlesque' is not an updated version of 'Showgirls.' In fact, with the big screen return of Cher, along with the dance choreography and singing by the two leads, the film is really an enjoyable guilty pleasure. "
