Taken 2 (2012)

"It's essentially the same movie as the first one- only less so. Regurgitated and redundant. Lacks the contained excitement of the first. Neeson deserves better. "

The Paperboy (2012)

Aftershock (2013)

"The first two-thirds are terrific, but it's marred by a gruesome finale. "

10 Years (2012)

"It may not be life changing or even original, but it is a feel good movie that reminds us that we are all a little afraid of growing up."

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

"It's a crowd-pleaser if I've ever seen one, and something that will have plenty of mileage come awards season. A best picture nomination seems a lock."

Premium Rush (2012)

"A near-miss. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and especially Michael Shannon give it their all, but they can't overcome the patch-work script. "

Hit & Run (2012)

"Done up in the style of a seventies Burt Reynolds flick- HIT AND RUN seemingly aspires to be nothing more than 100 minutes of fun, and on that score it more than delivers. "

The Campaign (2012)

2 Days in New York (2012)

The Bourne Legacy (2012)

"It adheres pretty strictly to the BOURNE formula, but LEGACY is still a very entertaining spy thriller. Renner is shaping up to be an ace leading man. "

Hope Springs (2012)

Total Recall (2012)

"Nice eye candy and a game cast doesn't make up for the utter lack of tension or excitement. This 2012 version of TOTAL RECALL is purely recycled, lifeless entertainment. "

Klown (2012)

"KLOWN may not necessarily garner Casper and Frank too many new fans, yet it will most likely please the target audience with its raunchy and sardonic humor."

Dredd (2012)

"From the smart casting to the hypnotic score by Paul Leonard-Morgan, to the copious amounts of crushed heads, this is a superhero flick that has balls and then some."

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

"From the towering shots of Gotham City to the exhilarating action set pieces, Nolan has crafted a worthy adversary when it comes to award season."

Savages (2012)

"A pretty good adaptation of an amazing book. The ending almost ruins it, but Del Toro, Travolta and even Kitsch pull it back from the brink. "
