Gravity (2013)

"As Cuarón spells out in his intro: "Life in space is impossible". So is forming any emotional attachment to Gravity." ‐ Final Cut on Film

Don Jon (2013)

"Gordon-Levitt's cracking directorial debut depicts porn/sex addiction infinitely more realistically -- and rollickingly -- than 2011's absurdly-overrated snoozefest Shame." ‐ NECN

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013)

"The makers of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 spend the first five minutes of their subpar sequel recapping the original, a handy reminder just how inferior Flint Lockwood's second cinematic outing is to his first." ‐ Final Cut on Film

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

"Bravo Jim Carrey, bravo. Refusing to promote your work in Kick-Ass 2 is the wisest career move you've ever made. " ‐ NECN

Despicable Me 2 (2013)

The Bling Ring (2013)

"A stick-thin expose of a gaggle of brats obsessed with snatching Prada purses and Alexander McQueen shoes from celebs' high-up-in-the-hills chateaus." ‐ NECN

World War Z (2013)

"We've seen it all before and seen it done far, far better. E.g., 28 Weeks Later, the Holy Grail of the zombie-contagion genre." ‐ NECN

Man of Steel (2013)

"Superman's brawl with Zod is interminable, an ungodly overload of CGI that amounts to a special effects bludgeoning." ‐ Final Cut on Film

The East (2013)

"Marling and Batmanglij pull punches as things come to a close, opting for a more pacifist resolution than their fictional insurrectionist group would certainly espouse." ‐ NECN

This Is the End (2013)

The Internship (2013)

"Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's cinematic reunion renders the Google-glorifying, Revenge of the Nerds ripoff irresistibly likable -- make that +1-able." ‐ NECN

Before Midnight (2013)

"Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy come off as if they were conjoined for the past nine years in the gloriously-acted, hypnotically-conversational conclusion to the Before Sunrise trilogy -- the year's first legit contender for awards season love." ‐ Final Cut on Film

Epic (2013)

"Though Epic walks a woefully-worn, save-the-planet path, it manages to feel fresh, even when drawing inspiration directly from Alice in Wonderland, Avatar and The Lord of the Rings." ‐ NECN

The Great Gatsby (2013)

"A visually-stunning, theatrically-showy spectacle that's as lavishly grandiose as one of Gatsby's grotesquely over-the-top shindigs." ‐ NECN

Iron Man 3 (2013)

To The Wonder (2013)

Trance (2013)

"The film's sensory experience is too alluring to resist, Boyle salvaging his unduly swirly story with a slathering of his shimmering, sumptuous aesthetics." ‐ NECN

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)

Spring Breakers (2013)

"Korine kills it with a Britney Spears-backed montage of the pretty little gangsters protecting Franco's drug-trafficking turf. Gun-toting teens clad in string bikinis passing for high art? Indubitably." ‐ Final Cut on Film

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

The Place Beyond The Pines (2013)

"While Cianfrance's overambitious narrative and Crash-y conclusion come perilously close to bringing the film to its knees, the electrifying first half more than compensates. " ‐ Final Cut on Film

Stoker (2013)

"Dripping with mood but deprived of dynamics, Stoker fails as an overall film yet wonders with the wizardry of the man behind the cam." ‐ NECN

Escape From Planet Earth (2013)

Warm Bodies (2013)

"It's hard to beat a brain-eating scene with John Waits' "Missing You" blaring in the background, the '80s ode to the forlorn has never sounded so grotesquely poignant." ‐ NECN

Amour (2012)

"Haneke addresses the ravaging effects of aging in a starkly intimate way but Amour oddly lacks affectivity. Something that should be overflowing with emotion is strangely as sterile as Georges and Anne's Parisian apartment." ‐ NECN

Zero Dark Thirty (2013)

"While it's executed with the same level of meticulous precision as the raid itself, you can't help but wonder if Bigelow could have compressed things just a bit." ‐ NECN

Django Unchained (2012)

This is 40 (2012)

"Teetering between tepidly humorous and totally unfunny, Judd Apatow's crazy long crudefest plays like bits and pieces of a stand-up routine that would get a comedian booed off the stage." ‐ NECN

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Killing Them Softly (2012)

Hitchcock (2012)

"Mirren's "I am woman, hear me roar" nuclear weapon-level unloading on her hubby is a contender for the strongest acting moment this year - time stops, jaws drop when she unleashes it." ‐ NECN
