Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

"It's sort of like a very special slavery-themed episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force."

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

"It relies solely on the gimmick that it's funny to have an ex-President using a silver-coated axe to fight mythical creatures. There's nothing else there."

Lola Versus (2012)

"Every time I walk out of a movie with Greta Gerwig in it, such as Damsels in Distress, Greenberg, and especially Arthur, I think, "You know what would have made that movie better? More Greta Gerwig.""

For Greater Glory (2012)

"It's the kind of now-obscure subject matter that could be fascinating if done well, but here just feels like an obligation. And yeah there's going to be a test, so good luck at not falling asleep in class."

Rock of Ages (2012)

"If the idea of listening to these iconic songs while sensing that you're about to see jazz hands break out at any second makes you start banging your head, then fork over your hard-earned money to see this."

That's My Boy (2012)

"[I'm] the kind who needs Adam Sandler to keep making deplorable garbage like this. I will watch it and I will enjoy myself and I will have no excuse for it and I will remain un-sorry."

Rock of Ages (2012)

"Whatever charms it had on the stage have apparently been lost in the transition, leaving us with a tedious, tacky lump."

"Subtly and thoroughly disturbing. "

Little Heaven ()

"Positively touching ... Director Lieven Corthouts keeps the film incredibly upbeat, appropriately paying mind to the girl's mantra of trying to be happy every day."

The Invisible War (2012)

"One of the most important films of the year ... a strong and quite damning expose."

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012)

Prometheus (2012)

"For all of the things that are familiar and give you an immediate understanding as to what story you're watching as it unfolds, there's plenty to drink in."

Bel Ami (2012)

"Pattinson is doing something that should be deliciously wicked and unique, but it somehow manages to be completely predictable in its unpredictability."

Skidoo (1968)

"One of those movies that defies labels like "good" or "bad" or "insane" or "genius," Skidoo conveys the generation gap of the late 1960s in a singularly bizarre way."

Sing Your Song (2012)

"Belafonte is the real deal, an optimistic and inspiring hero whose life story and career narrative is also a journey of civil and human rights struggles and accomplishments."

Paul Williams Still Alive (2012)

"Thanks to Williams, who almost deserves a co-directing credit, it ends up a very endearing portrait as well as an amusing real-life take on the buddy film."

U.N. Me (2012)

"Horowitz comes off as a deceptive jokester, so he doesn't always warrant a serious response from his audience. But we do need documentaries that reach beyond safe boundaries."

Pink Ribbons, Inc. (2012)

"Not especially well-crafted, but this provocative deviation from the usual documentary angle on aid organizations and human rights issues is worth a look."

Argento's Dracula 3D (2013)

"This would be laughable if it were the first film by a Hollywood producer's nephew. As the twenty-first feature by a 71-year-old genre veteran, it's embarrassing."

On the Road (2012)

"It doesn't capture the cadence and flow of Kerouac's writing -- doesn't really even try to -- and can only hint at the intangibles that made the novel so influential."

Antiviral (2013)

"It's fair to say that Antiviral is intriguing; it's just not thrilling. Cronenberg definitely has promise as a visually minded filmmaker and a teller of gross stories, however, and this is a respectable opening bid."

The Dictator (2012)
