Battle: Los Angeles (2011)

"A solid popcorn movie, with plenty of action, explosions and low-key mayhem unlikely to scar even the most fragile of psyches."

Beastly (2011)

"Beastly, for all its potential pitfalls, works better than it has any right to."

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

"I can't imagine anyone's ever speaking about this movie with fondness other than the people who made it, and maybe their close relatives."

Orgasm, Inc. (2011)

"Many documentaries lose focus or become unwieldy as their directors uncover unexpected facts about their subjects, but Canner is able to keep Orgasm Inc. trained on its eponymous theme ..."

Immigration Tango (2011)

"The movie never comes close to making you believe such an arrangement between these people could ever exist."

Unknown (2011)

"Unknown has its moments, but ultimately it's as forgettable as Martin's identity."

The Illusionist (L'illusionniste) (2010)

"The film ends on a note of graceful, heartbreaking beauty that Tati would have admired for its lack of sentimentality. A lot of what precedes that ending, though, is precious and slight and a little too fanciful."

The Eagle (2011)

"Tatum has the strong-jawed good looks and stoic demeanor of a natural-born movie star. What he lacks is a sense of inner life, a spark of internal fire: When the camera trains on him, you can practically hear the wind whistling through his head."

Rage (2011)

"This may be the first film ever made about the seething rage of the disenfranchised that succeeds in lulling you to sleep."

Sanctum (2011)

The Way Back (2011)

"This is an impressive production and technical feat, but through most of it, I kept thinking about how difficult the filming conditions must have been, and not about the lives of the men in front of me."

Somewhere (2010)

"The best movie directors aren't just masters of technical craft: They also are artists capable of showing you the world through their eyes -- of making you see and feel exactly what they do."

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World becomes a fatal case of flash over substance. Pretty great flash, though."

The Expendables (2010)

"The movie had been billed as a throwback to the action flicks of the 1980s, but that pitch turns out to be false advertising."

Charlie St. Cloud (2010)

"It's more of a demo reel for Efron than a movie. His predominant fan base, though, won't mind a bit."

Buried (2010)

"Buried, despite its seemingly impossible premise, is by turns funny, suspenseful, moving and -- in one heart-stopping sequence worthy of Indiana Jones -- incredibly exciting."

The Other Guys (2010)

"The Other Guys is the sort of movie that generates some of its best jokes quietly in the background or as quick-hit throwaway lines, while other terrific gags are defiantly over the top."

It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010)

"It's Kind of a Funny Story lacks substance, but after you've spent a short time in this ward, you have to agree with Craig: These crazies aren't so bad."

Restrepo (2010)

"Restrepo avoids political discussion. It just revels in the heroism of these impossibly young, brave soldiers who follow orders that at times seem pointless because following them is what their country has asked them to do."
