The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

"Compare the adaptation to the original and you see a complicated saga of personal sacrifice streamlined into a rosy tribute to love supreme. Feels good, but also feels empty"

Let Me In (2010)

"Stripping away the mysticism and sexuality of vampire lore, Let Me In has taken everything tantalizing about fanged thrillers and converted it instead into an element of agony"

The Social Network (2010)

"The story of a groundswell,of an unlikely collaboration between a product and its customers that upended not just the value propositions of Harvard, but of the pre-web economy"

Inception (2010)

"I expected a lot,but still walked out hypnotized. Here's a movie that's 3 steps ahead of you, on 4 different levels, at 5 blinding speeds. Best of 2010 thus far. (No Spoilers)"

Toy Story 3 (2010)

"In TS3, we come full circle to the biggest question of all: What does it mean not to feel outdated, or misunderstood, but truly useless? It's Waiting For Godot at Lego scale."

The A-Team (2010)

"Brisk, brash, whiplash-inducing. And cracking jokes all along the way.The more this quartet mugs for the camera, the more fun this whole macho-fantasia experiment becomes."

The Karate Kid (2010)

"It's Smith who sells Dre's realization - the same revelation all children have one day, that they are not the center of the universe but only a young star learning to orbit"

Kick-Ass (2010)

"You can tell from scene 1 this was made by someone with vision and conviction, willing to risk offending some so he could wow others. This is no film-by-focus-group. Thank God"

Clash of the Titans (2010)

"The battles look great with computer renderings, but outside the Kraken sequence they don't inspire an ounce of awe. The gods have never looked more real, or mattered less"

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

"Such a delightfully giddy, silly, delirious movie. Tim Burton isn't being "Tim Burton" but is just having fun again, scrambling up the expected pieces"

The Crazies (2010)

"This is complete and utter anarchy with every person out for himself, as the idealistic American dream gives way in real-time to the darker impulse of self-preservation."

The Wolfman (2010)

"You know a horror film's in trouble when the morning-after scene is more satisfying than the 'night before.'"

Frozen (2010)

"I love the straightforward gall of Frozen. Here's a horror film that's confident enough to abandon superficial scares in favor of a far more insidious, intellectual concept"
