Posted May 1, 2011

3.5/5 53% The Mechanic (2011) "Statham has my respect for two reasons: 1) he's one of the few remaining action stars who isn't claiming his pension, and 2) he has yet to star in a Disney movie in which he must babysit projectile-vomiting children. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Mar 22, 2011
2/5 35% Battle: Los Angeles (2011) "I'm sure there's an epic battle going on here, but it's hard to tell when the cameraman is too busy shaking off a swarm of angry bees to capture any of it. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Mar 17, 2011

3/5 93% 127 Hours (2010) "It doesn't matter how disarming Franco's single-handed performance is; there is simply not enough dramatic meat on the bones of Ralston's true story to distract us from where it is heading. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Feb 8, 2011
2/5 48% No Strings Attached (2011) "If I had to dig for praise, it's impressive that Reitman manages to get the 5'2" Portman and 6'3" Kutcher in the same frame. " ‐ Moviedex

Posted Feb 6, 2011
4/5 43% Faster (2010) "There's a primal intensity, both adrenal and emotional, flowing through Tillman Jr's frenetic direction and Johnson's gritty performance that suggests there's more going on under the hood than the stock fittings let on. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Jan 31, 2011
2/5 46% Hereafter (2010) "Eastwood's weepy depiction of the 'here' is just as dull and tedious as his superficial exploration of the 'after'. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Jan 29, 2011
4/5 96% True Grit (2010) "Although it mightn't be Coen in quirk, it certainly is Coen in quality. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Jan 27, 2011
3/5 43% The Green Hornet (2011) "There's just enough novelty, action and comedy in the tank to see this film teeter across the finish line, even if it does cough and splutter for much of the journey. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Jan 18, 2011

Posted Dec 28, 2010
2/5 71% Somewhere (2010) "Somewhere features dead-on-the-inside people looking pensively into their bowls of pasta. Some call this reality, I call it bloody boring. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 20, 2010
3.5/5 20% Gulliver's Travels (2010) "Not only tolerable, but actually - *gasp* - enjoyable. [...] The 3D is better employed here than it was in Tron: Legacy. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 19, 2010
4/5 88% Blue Valentine (2010) "The tagline "Nobody baby but you and me" says it perfectly; when Gosling and Williams on screen, nobody else matters. If not Oscars, they will win over your heart. And possibly break it. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 16, 2010
1.5/5 51% Tron Legacy (2010) "Tron: Legacy looks like the bathroom of a trendy nightclub. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 15, 2010
4.5/5 94% The King's Speech (2010) "David Seidler writes in a way that Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network couldn't; he successfully balances truth and entertainment, injecting a keen sense of humour without costing the film its humanity or credibility. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 14, 2010
4/5 72% Megamind (2010) "It's never quite slap-your-knees hilarious, but Megamind will still have you smiling from dimple to dimple for every one of its 95 minutes. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Dec 7, 2010
2/5 40% Due Date (2010) "It's bad enough that it took four screenwriters to ineptly rehash Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but it's even worse that they've only managed to come up with one new joke each. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 27, 2010
4.5/5 72% The Last Exorcism (2010) "The Last Exorcism is a rare reminder that the genre label "horror" derives from the word horrifying, not horrible. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 25, 2010
2.5/5 78% Red Hill (2010) "Red Hill only truly works when it retains a hard edge and a straight face. So why does Hughes insist on blowing so many raspberries? " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 24, 2010
4/5 72% Monsters (2010) "By playing on our intrinsic fear of the unknown, Monsters turns out to be far more convincing, compelling and unnerving than the likes of Skyline where the aliens are constantly in the limelight. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 18, 2010
3/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) "The darker atmosphere and real-world locales makes this the most mature and humanistic entry to date, but it's hard not to miss the warmth and whimsy that has been left behind. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 15, 2010
2/5 15% Skyline (2010) "A good example of what can visually be achieved on a tight budget, but an even better example of why filmmaking should be left to filmmakers. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 12, 2010
2/5 9% Saw 3D (2010) "The filmmakers continue to regurgitate the same pile of puke each and every year for us to lap up. Sure, those chewed chunks of bile-soaked carrot are now in "eye-popping" 3D, but that certainly doesn't make them taste any better. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Nov 4, 2010
4/5 98% The Loved Ones (2012) "A squeamishly self-aware bloodbath in which Lola, superbly portrayed by Robin McLeavy with hellish zeal, reveals her ambition to be the next Hannibal Lecter. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 24, 2010
3.5/5 96% The Social Network (2010) "There's a lot to like, yet The Social Network lacks a strong emotional core that is integral to making a good drama truly great. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 23, 2010
3.5/5 71% Red (2010) "Although it's full of wasted potential, Red is a prime example of a mediocre film elevated by raw star power. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 14, 2010
2/5 23% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) "Paul W.S. Anderson has discovered his favourite new gimmick - slow motion. Had Afterlife played at full speed, it probably would have lasted all of 15 minutes. Wouldn't that have been nice. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 12, 2010
4.5/5 87% Buried (2010) "Whoever says you need to think outside the box should think again, because Buried is nothing short of a minimalist masterpiece. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 10, 2010
3/5 88% Let Me In (2010) "Let Me In mimics the mood and mastery of Alfredson’s original almost to the point where it's a shot for shot remake. Yes, it’s good. But only because the original was good to begin with. " ‐ Moviedex
Posted Oct 7, 2010
1.5/5 42% Dinner for Schmucks (2010) "Dinner for Schmucks belongs to that mangy breed of American comedy that confuses situations that are genuinely funny for situations that are agonisingly awkward. " ‐ Moviedex
