Winter in Wartime (2011)
"While far from terrible, I can't really say this one is all that good, either, and like spending a night out having one to many the only thing lasting about this new journey with Arthur Bach is the unhappy hangover one is left with the very next morning. "
Your Highness (2011)
"At the same time, Green is far too talented a filmmaker for this picture to be quite this unrelentingly terrible, and for everyone involved I can't help but think this is a collective low none of them will soon live down. "
Fast Five (2011)
"As debuts go, the one director Michael Greenspan and screenwriter Christopher Dodd make here is pretty darn impressive. All the pieces of this puzzle are in place, the filmmakers connecting them one to the other with cocksure confidence. "
"We root for Frank even though his antics as the Crimson Bolt become more and more extreme as the film goes along, especially after Boltie joins the team, keeping things in an insane moralistic grey area that's thought-provoking and invigorating. "
"But at a certain point the bottom falls out of this production, the filmmakers letting things get increasingly silly and ludicrous unleashing a final climactic flourish of lunacy and tedium that had me scratching my head as to what exactly just happened. "
"Other than some truly obnoxious and out of place sexual innuendos that serve no purpose and have no reason to be in the film other than to help it achieve a PG rating, this is a picture unashamedly geared towards little kids under the age of ten. "
Source Code (2011)
Black Death (2011)
Jane Eyre (2011)
"It is a movie that has delved into the nooks and crannies of the author's brain unlike any other before it that I have seen, and for that reason alone I do call it a triumph and a motion picture most definitely worth the time to experience for one's self. "
Win Win (2011)
The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)
"This is a full-bore legal thriller of maneuvering and slight-of-hand, of parlor games and verbal ingenuity, and when all is said and done the tension ratcheted up is of a higher pedigree than I would have believed was possible before entering the theatre. "
"Better, part of me kind of thinks the film is maybe extolling the virtues of addiction, saying the pluses outweigh the minuses as long as you have enough self control to understand your limits and not overdue it. "
Sucker Punch (2011)
"All you need to know is that Sucker Punch is awful, probably on my shortlist of the worst motion pictures that I have ever seen. That's it, nothing more; as far as I'm concerned it's more then enough. "
Vanishing On 7th Street (2011)
Elektra Luxx (2011)
"Not that there's a lot of substance here in the first place. Gutierrez's movie is superficial and slick in most respects, and if not for its amazing cast of veteran and up-and-coming character actors I don't there would be much here to talk about. "
Mars Needs Moms (2011)
"The biggest problem, however, remains the animation style itself. Zemeckis' motion capture technology just isn't fit to depict human movement. Worse, it can't showcase a human eyeball to save its life. "
Battle: Los Angeles (2011)
Red Riding Hood (2011)
Tetsuo: The Bullet Man (2009)
The Housemaid (2011)
"While elements of this one are downright awesome, the final product is sadly forgettable, and for all its strengths it's doubtful this is one I'll be talking about one way or the other come the end of the year. "
I Am Number Four (2011)
Dream Home (2010)
"The film is a surprisingly hilarious and deeply sickening midnight freak-out, and for a director known more for character-driven melodramas and comedies it's a delectably disgusting change of pace worth crowing about. "
The Eagle (2011)
Cedar Rapids (2011)
"It is smart, witty and extremely entertaining. What's even better is that it truly respects its characters, treating them with a surprising amount of respect giving the film an emotional center that connected right to the core of my heart. "
Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)
Just Go with It (2011)
"Instead Dugan is more than content to let things play themselves out the majority of the time, a refreshing, almost Blake Edwards-like simplicity to what's being depicted onscreen that's rather charming. "
Another Year (2010)
"While certain sequences can't help but bristle with tension, overall director Alister Grierson stages everything in as straightforward and as perfunctory a manner as possible, draining the suspense out of scenes that should be overflowing with it. "
La posesión de Emma Evans (2011)
"While it had its moments, and while the performances, especially from Vavasseur, were borderline exceptional, the movie itself is just far too routine and familiar to achieve the thrills and chills it is going for. "
The Rite (2011)
The Mechanic (2011)
"It's flash without the sizzle, an appetizer without the main course, and by the time it was finished setting itself up for the requisite sequel I was mentally already halfway out the door to forgetting about it completely. "
The Way Back (2011)
"Much like the group it chronicles the movie never relents, never stops and, more importantly, never gives up. It keeps moving forward, forward, forward, refusing to back down or give in no matter what sort of hardship or tragedy pops up along the way. "
Country Strong (2011)
"The movie slogs from scene to scene with no urgency, no energy, making 110-minutes feel like a mind-numbing mental marathon the likes of which even championship level Grand Master chess players would find far too taxing. "
Season of the Witch (2011)
"Watching it you can't escape the feeling that Hollywood executives were constantly hovering telling Sena to add more CGI here, less character development there and all-in-all doing their best to royally screw things up. "
And Everything Is Going Fine (2010)
"It is a fitting and beguiling coda to a man who never shied from laying all his cards on the table in order to reveal all, only his 2004 suicide an unsettling mystery the truth of which no one will ever truly know the answer behind. "
The Green Hornet (2011)
"It almost put me to sleep, and considering just how many explosions, near-escapes, fireballs, rockets and cracked heads it packs into its almost two-hour running time leading this viewer to the edge of narcolepsy is a pretty nifty trick. "
The Dilemma (2011)
"But it's just way too uneven, too masochistically sexist and startlingly homophobic for the good to outweigh the bad. It is a movie I can appreciate for the attempt but roast over the coals thanks to its execution. "
No Strings Attached (2011)
Gulliver's Travels (2010)
Blue Valentine (2010)
"Cianfrance has crafted an intriguing, superbly acted enigma, the final product a relationship tragedy devoid of tears, devoid of emotion and, ultimately, sadly devoid of giving me any reason to care. "
