Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

"It actually went so far as to remind me of days of old, where action heroes were valiant and adorable, and you just want them to kick the bad guy's butts and get the girl."

Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011)

"This HP 7.2 makes a great case for lifting the entire third act out of a picture and just making that your sequel."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011)

Winnie the Pooh (2011)

"The world of Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Wood is a quiet, gentle, kind, generous place. In other words, it's the exact opposite of every single other children's film or TV show in existence in the year 2011."

Horrible Bosses (2011)

"Smarter ideas about revenge, politics and labor are all off the table, and that's weird for a movie where the title promises angry catharsis for everyone who's fortunate enough to even have an employer to hate in the first place."

Zookeeper (2011)

"Because Hollywood Suits need to keep their jobs, they have to make sure that movies about talking animals contain at least the sketchiest framework of a human plot to help everybody pretend that it's all actually about something."

Zookeeper (2011)

Monte Carlo (2011)

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

"[If] your favorite element of these films is precisely their refusal to comply with your eyeballs' need for stuff to just stop for a minute every once in a while so you can focus and not get sick to your stomach, then yeah, lots more of that."

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

"As the credits rolled, however, I was so amped up over the extreme violence and non-stop assault on my senses, I realized that this is what Romans must have felt like just after they partook in their entertainment."

Larry Crowne (2011)

"You can tell they like each other as movie-star-buddies, they're relaxed, unshowy and inviting, but there's not one moment where you get the idea that naked sex activities are on anyone's agenda."

Cars 2 (2011)

"Unless you have a kid in tow who wants to see about 75 new cars that you'll later have to buy for them in toy form, this movie isn't a must-see."

Cars 2 (2011)

"You'd think that the grown-up audience that actually buys the billions of dollars worth of Cars toys and other merch wouldn't have to deal with being so studiously ignored, especially when no other Pixar movie has ever intentionally shut them out."

Film socialisme (2011)

"It's Godard, in what may or may not be the final chapter of his filmmaking career -- at 80 he's just a kid compared to director Manoel de Oliveira, over 100 years old and still making movies -- and he's still deliberately messing with the audience."

Film socialisme (2011)

"It's upsetting that I spent 90 minutes of my life wrestling with this movie to get absolutely nothing out of it, except a desire to take Godard's camera away and put him in a nursing home."
