Free Birds (2013)

"Better luck next time, message-poultry and talking space eggs (please, whatever deity controls turkey representation in pop culture, let there not be a next time)." ‐Movies.com

Ender's Game (2013)

"Ender's Game can't keep itself from rational thought, which is always gray. It weighs facts against feelings. It's reluctant to slaughter a perceived enemy. And that's the part of his creation that Card will never be able to dismantle. " ‐Movies.com

The Fifth Estate (2013)

"This needed to be a 10-hour miniseries on HBO, there's that much ground to cover." ‐Movies.com

Carrie (2013)

"It's lifeless, dull, sanded-down and expected, another unsurprising, irrelevant product for the movie-watching market to regard with curiosity and, eventually, deirision after it vacuums up all that opening weekend teen-cash. " ‐Movies.com

A Touch of Sin (2013)

"In [Jia's] sorrowful vision of Life Right Now, everything on screen follows the jagged line of trickle-down cruelty, one where the bottom isn't the bottom at all. " ‐Linoleum Knife

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013)

"The wordplay zips back and forth, never stooping to smarmy innuendo. It's the kind of clever that parents will enjoy as their little ones focus on the brightly colored, energetic "foodimals," friends they'd never think of devouring." ‐Movies.com

Machete Kills (2013)

Captain Phillips (2013)

Enough Said (2013)

"[Gandolfini and Dreyfuss] seem to truly enjoy one another's company and it makes us root for them while reminding us how sad it is the movies have lost him." ‐Movies.com

Battle of the Year (2013)

Rush (2013)

Prisoners (2013)

"...its cast is uniformly impressive, especially the mute, disturbed Dano and the glum "bad cop" Gyllenhaal, who effectively turns down the handsome and owns the film with his gaunt, haunted stare." ‐Movies.com

The Family (2013)

"[De Niro]'s been down this road so many times now it's a wonder he isn't hiring himself out for lucrative guest spots doing stand-up for rich children at Goodfellas-themed Chuck E. Cheese birthday parties." ‐Movies.com

Blue Caprice (2013)

" Some of the most harrowing conversations take place in supermarkets, over tables in diners, in the bright light of day. "We're invisible," says Washington at one point. And that is the point, or at least one of them." ‐Movies.com

The Grandmaster (2013)

"Wong Kar Wai has something slow, lush and precise in mind for this story of Ip Man (Tony Leung), the legendary martial arts master who trained Bruce Lee. He offers a chance to dream in kung fu." ‐Movies.com

Passion (2013)

"It feels like a reunion with a weird old friend, the kind who's obsessed with the kinkier side of Alfred Hitchcock, Emmanuelle movies, sensual body lotions and smooth jazz sax solos." ‐Movies.com

One Direction: This Is Us (2013)

"One Direction: This Is Us... doesn't bother with bummers, even small ones. Fame, according to this movie, is a journey to the center of radness. " ‐Movies.com

Riddick (2013)

Pacific Rim (2013)

"It won't steal any real estate in your heart still occupied by Gamera, Ultra-Man or those weird times when Godzilla battled King Kong or his own mecha-doppelganger, but it can stand proudly next to them and belch nuclear fire all day long." ‐Movies.com

The Kings of Summer (2013)

"The filmmakers... opt for a mostly witty Sundance-branded coming-of-age sitcom featuring lucky good looks, accelerated maturity, sexual ease, quick wits, cooperative facial hair and a distinct lack of teenage awkwardness." ‐Movies.com

After Earth (2013)

The Purge (2013)

"...quickly forgets its fake concern because there's too much awesome stalking, stabbing and shrieking demanding camera time, too many luxury objects that cry out to be righteously smashed by bad guy skulls. " ‐Movies.com

Much Ado About Nothing (2013)

This Is the End (2013)

"They've tapped into the inherent psychedelia of Revelation and enhanced it with absurdity, scatology, Ecstasy, weed and a contemporary secular ignorance informed by Terminator movies." ‐Movies.com

The Hangover Part III (2013)

Upstream Color (2013)

"It's not designed to stump or baffle but to beckon you into its wondrously chilly gray world. If it takes a few viewings to unlock (most of) its secrets then lucky you; you spent high-quality time you might have wasted on Pain & Gain." ‐Movies.com

The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2013)

"...the movie goes full-tilt sledgehammer with parallels between the corporate culture of greed where quotidian terrorism involves ruining workers' lives and the more clear-cut brand of blowing-up-everybody terror." ‐Movies.com

Oblivion (2013)

"Kosinki is no hack. He's made a gorgeous-looking experience, the kind they invented IMAX to accommodate. He's a pastiche artist, cribbing stylishness and building his own beautiful ice sculpture..." ‐Movies.com

The Lords of Salem (2013)

"Zombie loves taking his beloved spouse and turning her into a demonic witch-Madonna while The Velvet Underground drones "All Tomorrow's Parties." As horror it's not horrifying, but as a valentine to creepshow romance it's almost heartwarming" ‐Movies.com

Pain & Gain (2013)

"[Casts] the fictional approximations of the real-life victims as somehow deserving their fate in an effort to create sympathy for its three bumbling anti-heroes. In other words it's an insult to true stories." ‐Movies.com

The Big Wedding (2013)

"I'm... pleased?... not sure if that's the right word... surprised or relieved, maybe, like finding out you get to be the front part of the human centipede... to report that this not-very-good wedding farce is also not the worst film of all time." ‐Movies.com

Mud (2013)

"...a respectful, storyteller's approach to rural America. No mockery, no Hollywood-knows-better, no nonsense. That kind of thing is in shorter supply than the universe's collective desire for McConaughey to return to rom-coms." ‐Movies.com

42 (2013)

"It's flamboyantly square and corny. It starts big and gets even bigger, demanding that you get on board. It offers zero surprises and a palatable historical glossiness, but also terrific David-slays-Goliath pleasures." ‐Movies.com
