G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)

"Jonathan Pryce (The President) and Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow) steal the film from the muscled stars without firing a bullet."

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"Olympus Has fallen packs a punch with its fair share of tired clichés. It's at once hokey and gripping, a pulp feature that certainly doesn't hold back."

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)

"A lackluster script, poor direction, and a dialed-in lead performance from Steve Carell make this ensemble comedy a big disappointment. The lone highlight and saving grace is Jim Carrey."

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

"If you don't leave Oz with a smile on your face and bounce in your step, then you're a miserable grouch that surely needs a hug."

Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)

"The CGI effects and tepid intro will probably bore older viewers, but if you let yourself get into the story, then you're in for a decent time."

Snitch (2013)

"Dwayne Johnson has his best performance yet as a father fighting to save his son from a grave injustice."

A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)

"The well has certainly dried up for the Die Hard franchise."

Parker (2013)

Jack Reacher (2012)

"Jack Reacher is a crisp actioner and mystery from writer/director Christopher McQuarrie."

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

"Peter Jackson triumphantly returns to Middle Earth with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. A folksy, beguiling adventure, we get to enjoy the splendor of the story and fantastic settings in a more whimsical experience."

Zero Dark Thirty (2013)

"Zero Dark Thirty is a clinical, apolitical look at ten years of dogged determination. It is a thoughtful exploration of the elaborate puzzle put together to find Osama Bin Laden."

Life of Pi (2012)

"Ang Lee has taken the most impossible of stories and given it life. Life of Pi is adventure on a grand scale; easily the most technically advanced film of 2012."

Lincoln (2012)

"Daniel Day-Lewis plays Lincoln as a true mid-westerner, a wry, twinkle-eyed statesman that understood how conviction and likeability could affect the hearts of men. This man has no equal as an actor."

Skyfall (2012)

"Skyfall represents the new standard in one of cinema's longest running franchises. It is a deeply personal, exquisitely shot film that had me mesmerized from the opening scene."

Flight (2012)

"The first act of Flight is as engrossing as any film I've seen this year. It's when the film starts pandering to Washington's performance that it loses steam."

Cloud Atlas (2012)

"The new age spiritualism behind the story is flogged for too long and ultimately isn't that rewarding. However, the audacity of Cloud Atlas makes it a must see for any real fan of cinema."

Alex Cross (2012)

"Tyler Perry, who made his considerable fortune in drag as Madea, was wise to embrace a film that pulled no punches and shows he can be a bad ass on screen."

Lawless (2012)

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

"The Amazing Spider-Man has its good points, the primary leads and romance, but lacks fluidity and presence of a great villain."

Men in Black III (2012)
