Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012)

"Hallstrom shores up his film with a terrific cast that can often make up for the parts that sag under the uneven weight of preciousness."

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

"[A] loud and agonizingly dull sequel that inherits all the problems that plagued its predecessor - and then some."

Coriolanus (2011)

"Slathered in blood, covered with scars and glowering with a predator's gaze, Ralph Fiennes makes a fierce and impressive Caius Martius Coriolanus."

The Deep Blue Sea (2012)

"That's the difficulty in warming up to The Deep Blue Sea: The first thing we see Hester do is foolish and inconceivable, which makes it hard to get invested in her future."

Jeff Who Lives at Home (2012)

"A surprisingly sappy misfire from brothers Jay and Mark Duplass - a hug-it-out, touchy-feely movie that succumbs to the maudlin sentimentality they had avoided in all their previous pictures."

Delicacy (2012)

Casa de mi padre (2012)

"Hearing Ferrell shout "Alejate! O te doy una paliza con estas manos!" is a lot funnier if you speak Spanish - and much less so if you're stuck reading subtitles. "

Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You (2012)

"The film is a pleasant watch, filled with nice little moments of comedy and tenderness, and optimistic about the fate of dreamers who happen to be a little slow out of the starting gate. "

Juan of the Dead (2012)

"As a zombie picture, Juan of the Dead is merely OK. But as a satirical comedy of life in Cuba under Castro, it totally kills - and keeps coming back for more. "

In Darkness (2012)

"More than half of In Darkness takes place underground, shrouded in rank, oppressive shadows. But the movie also glows bright with life and hope."

A Thousand Words (2012)

John Carter (2012)

"John Carter manages to be a ridiculous amount of fun, even if you are immune to the charms of Taylor Kitsch running around in what amounts to a stylish loincloth."

We Need to Talk About Kevin (2012)

The Vow (2012)

"If I get in a car accident, suffer a traumatic head injury, and emerge from a coma to find Channing Tatum telling me that he's my husband, I'm just going to go with it. Even if I don't recognize him."

Smash: Season 1 (TV, 2012)

" Smash doesn't dabble in sociology: It's pure greasepaint melodrama. Sneer all you want, but if you sneak in a secret smile now and then, that's OK, too. "

The Woman in Black (2012)
