Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

"Like a grease-laden fast-food meal, the fourth and highest-budgeted installment in the videogame-based tale of bio warfare gone amuck is slick, tasty, gimmick-laden and literally in-your-face"

The Romantics (2010)

"Just in time for hurricane season, this perfect storm of pretentiousness blows into a theater near you."

I'm Still Here (2010)

"...does for the celebrity crash-and-burn story what This Is Spinal Tap did for rock docs. Except Spinal Tap only toured as a real band after the movie."

Hellcats: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

" We don't care what anyone says, Hellcats is a fun little treat in the endless sea of heavy-handed legal dramas this season. "

Going the Distance (2010)

"As a riotous comedy, Distance falls short, but it still racks up several miles for sweetness."

Machete (2010)

"There's still a lot of fun to be had when he actually does pick up that signature blade and start chopping, but when it comes to Trejo taking the spotlight, we were hoping for more snarly, less sedate."

The American (2010)

"It's like being given a connect-the-dots puzzle, only to find out it contains just four dots."

Takers (2010)

"It's cool to see a movie that doesn't feel the need to make everyone likable, but the four credited screenwriters here don't manage to make anyone worthy of our sympathy"

The Last Exorcism (2010)

"But producer Eli Roth's The Last Exorcism doesn't reconcile the real identity crisis: a script that can't stop making jokes, undermining the scary stuff with too many giggles and not enough shrieks. "

Nanny McPhee Returns (2010)

"Thompson makes McPhee so alluring that her absence is always noticeable. You'll miss that face when it's gone, warts and all."

Lottery Ticket (2010)

"It doesn't work all the time, but it's definitely a worthy attempt."

The Switch (2010)

"The story is boosted by some decent acting and a few genuine laughs, but not enough to justify the cost of a theater ticket."

Piranha 3-D (2010)

"It's Elisabeth Shue and Ving Rhames to the rescue in this low-tech drive-in throwback, complete with corny jokes, unnecessary gore, stunt casting and plenty of skin."

Vampires Suck (2010)

"What sucks more than vampires? Lame, lazy movie parodies aimed at attention-deficient tweens. "

The Expendables (2010)

"Peppered with funny dialogue, epic brawls and supersize explosions, The Expendables is the adrenaline shot the summer of 2010 needs."

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"Much like the graphic novels that inspired it, the movie is as much a love letter to video games as it is a smart romantic comedy."

Eat Pray Love (2010)

"Most of what made the book connect with so many is entirely missing here."

Flipped (2010)

"Flipped is sweet but unsubstantial, kinda like puppy love itself."

The Other Guys (2010)

"Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg milk dry their default movie personas, but it's all part of the joke -- and what a great joke it is."

Step Up 3 (2010)

"Cheesy? A bit, but using 3-D to enhance the dance floor feels more honest than the dull 3-D of The Last Airbender."

Charlie St. Cloud (2010)

"A well-crafted tearjerker with a grown-up performance from Zac Efron. If you don't mind risking dehydration, it's the movie for you."

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"The American version is too obvious and never really gets its hands dirty with a premise that's mean-spirited to begin with."

Ramona and Beezus (2010)

"Relative unknown Joey King, as Ramona, is on the right side of precocious, using her adorableness in carefully measured doses. She easily carries the movie."

Salt (2010)

"Overly complex characters, poorly edited action bits and a pileup of ludicrous twists leave this flick a flavorless mess."

Inception (2010)

"A smartly scripted, big-budget action/heist movie of the sort you'd expect from the director of The Dark Knight."

The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)

"Against many odds, a big-budget Jerry Bruckheimer remake -- of a story best known with Mickey Mouse in the lead! -- manages to hit every mark and gives us a rare blockbuster that should please viewers of all types."

Posted Jul 14, 2010

Despicable Me (2010)

"It's a well-worn tale: Irresistible moppets turn a crusty crank's heart to mush and awaken the nurturing dad within. But delightful Despicable freshens this stale family formula with endearing characters, vivid visuals and Looney Tunes-style lunacy."

Predators (2010)

"This time, the big, disappearing, dreadlocked hunters from outer space must face off against...Adrien Brody? Don't worry, action fans, it plays out a lot better than it sounds. Just pray he doesn't run for governor afterward."

The Last Airbender (2010)

"...it's unfortunate that the one element people apparently cannot manipulate in this world is wood, as that would be the only way to extract a decent performance."

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

"In director David Slade's hands, the story plays like two movies in one, neither being particularly well made, whether it's the would-be action horror of a brewing vampire-on-werewolf fight or the endlessly talky Bella-Edward torpor."

Grown Ups (2010)

"With its undeveloped premise and juvenile humor, Grown Ups remains emotionally and comedically stunted."

Knight & Day (2010)

Jonah Hex (2010)

"Josh Brolin does the pizza-faced bounty hunter justice, but pretty much everyone else involved -- including Megan Fox -- lets him down."

Toy Story 3 (2010)

"Another sentimental journey with some old friends, new scene-stealers and a powerful, heartfelt mix of sugar and spice."

The Karate Kid (2010)

"Like a kung-fu master poised on one leg, a movie must have balance -- between action and emotion, heart and head, fast and slow. This rebooted Kid wobbles, flails, and ultimately stumbles in a futile attempt to top the original."

The A-Team (2010)

"Pretty much everything you could have hoped for in an A-Team movie, this big-screen update of the '80s TV show hits all its marks."

Killers (2010)

"What does work here has little to do with the leads, but rather some scene-stealing performances from Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara as Heigl's overprotective parents."

Splice (2010)

"Two wunderkind geneticists create a new lifeform that's part human, part creepoid. It quickly evolves into something very cool, and so does this creature feature, with a great cast and only a few bumps in the final reel."

Get Him to the Greek (2010)

"Moments of utter hilarity occur, but director Nicholas Stoller seems unsure which of the two is his real protagonist, and the incidents of idiocy are more isolated than escalating."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

Sex and the City 2 (2010)

MacGruber (2010)

"Unfortunately, the film becomes as much of a scattershot joke on the Regan era as it is on MacGruber himself."

Shrek Forever After (2010)

"It was hard to believe Dreamworks was going to be able to find an interesting enough story for a fourth installment, but Shrek Forever After is actually pretty compelling."

Letters to Juliet (2010)

"It's almost like the movie is afraid of what it should be -- a young, frisky love story that should be exuberant and carefree, even if it means risking making a fool of itself. What's love, after all, if it doesn't do exactly that?"

Posted May 13, 2010

Dezhda Gaubert

Robin Hood (2010)

"A rather pointless update of the (theoretically) timeless tale. Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe's latest pairing is not without its pleasures, but fails to deliver the action you might expect."

Babies (2010)

"It isn't for everybody, but this documentary about four newborns from far corners of the Earth does a terrific job of illustrating just how diverse an infant's first year can be."

Iron Man 2 (2010)

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010)

"For many, this will be just too disturbing to sit through. But stick with it, Six has crafted his picture that will remind genre fans of a young David Cronenberg, circa Dead Ringers."
