Shark Night 3D (2011)

"By way of comparison, Soul Surfer devoted at least a dozen minutes of screen time to people reading the Bible and that was a more exciting shark attack movie than this. "

Shark Night 3D (2011)

"Unfortunately, you can't even appreciate the movie for jaw-droppingly bad performances. It's just a whole bunch of people who deserved better."

Colombiana (2011)

"The movie is like a lady who can't choose between two suitors: the campy and fun one, or the serious and cliché one."

Our Idiot Brother (2011)

"Somehow the script manages to eke out enough new jokes and sweet moments to help me hang in there with Ned, and Elizabeth Banks makes a deliciously despicable Miranda."

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

30 Minutes or Less (2011)

Final Destination 5 (2011)

"These movies are starting to cross over into pure genius territory with their ever-evolving sense of self awareness and addition of 3D."

Bellflower (2011)

"The movie peels back the damage and lays it out in a way that's as fractured and sad as the mess its characters make, like a Judd Apatow dramedy with skull-cracking baseball bat beatdowns."

Bellflower (2011)

"Replete with occasional moments of grunge on the lens and other clear indicators of its ultra-indie origins, Bellflower is not perfect, it's post-perfect... which is exactly the way reality feels right about now."

The Help (2011)

"There's not a human response that isn't framed as either an "awwww" moment of lady-bonding, a you-go-girl punchline or a begin-weeping-right-NOW command. So that's pretty exhausting."

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

"Although the CG started out a little shaky, Andy Serkis and his motion capture work quickly won me over as Caesar aged. I completely forgot I wasn't watching a real ape take everything over. In fact, he became my favorite character."

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011)

"This isn't really a Glee movie as much as it is a movie about how everybody loves Glee. And because of that important distinction, the real theme of the party is "Let's gloat over our own success" and it'll leave non-fans no way in."

The Change-Up (2011)

"Put in the hands of less competent actors, this movie would have been completely skippable. However, since they both hold their own and the jokes are surprisingly biting, it ends up being tolerable."

30 Minutes or Less (2011)

Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011)

"There aren't enough movies about women's friendships. And there really aren't enough movies about women's friendships with all-Asian casts. So it's a bummer to report that this one's as terrible as it is."
