"Of the horde of big-screen redo's of one-time TV hits, who'd have thought 21 JUMP STREET would be the one to get it right? "

Casa de mi padre (2012)

Silent House (2012)

"...thanks to an effective gimmick and a wonderful leading lady, it's not the worst way to spend 88 minutes in a darkened theatre, or better still in the comfort of your own home."

Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012)

"TIM & ERIC'S BILLION DOLLAR MOVIE has its moments, but ultimately it feels like a skit stretched out much too long."

Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012)

"With a small handful of musical numbers and a likable hero in the form of Ted, you can do much worse than this when it comes to a family friendly feature."

Being Flynn (2012)

"Dano and De Niro are phenomenal together. This is certainly a career best for each of these fine actors, which is especially impressive considering De Niro's resume."

Act of Valor (2012)

The Vow (2012)

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012)

"The story is a bit outlandish and the dialogue is far from smart, but the young ones will be entertained and it won't be too painful for the adults thanks to Johnson's likability factor."

Perfect Sense (2012)

"There is a low key element to this narrative much like what CHILDREN OF MEN offered, however this is not nearly as successful as Alfonso Cuarón's brilliant feature."

Excision (2012)

"While it's more than a little sick, and will likely leave you queasy by the time the credits roll, EXCISION is nonetheless a truly unique horror ride into the scariest of all places- the mind of a teenaged misfit."

Red Lights (2012)

"While the ending is more than a little wacky (not such a bad thing), RED LIGHTS is a classy, beautifully put together thriller. Cillian Murphy is a movie star, and people need to give him his due. "
