The Artist (2011)

"You have to applaud a movie that takes every rule for How to Sell Your Movie to Modern Audiences and throws it on a silver nitrate fire." ‐

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)

"Nic Cage doesn't get a chance to qualify for the Razzies in this one, which prompts me to recommend you rent Drive Angry instead. That movie has a much better use of a human skull." ‐

Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

"Full of images that weave, fade, and flicker among each other, it's visually one of the most beautiful of the year, holding you in the palm of its tiny child-sized hand, floating through the chaos. " ‐

Magic Mike (2012)

" I was gunning for Showgirls only as Show Boys. Instead director Steven Soderbergh did something normal and classy, which are two words I associate with his other films and did not want to describe this film. " ‐

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012)

"Wimpy Kid doesn't need to use seizure-inducing, bright, shiny tricks to distract you from the thin plot, like disco dance floors and rats being hurled off of cruise ships in 3D." ‐

Step Up Revolution (2012)

"Step Up Revolution is an exercise in extremes--when the characters aren't busy crying over the same ol', same ol', they're dancing in some of the most unique, exciting setups ever produced that will make your eyes pop out of your head." ‐

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

"The last act of the film delivers in a shocking way. What comes before it is imperfect, but since we're talking about Nolan here, it's still worth seeing, discussing, and then seeing again." ‐

Madea's Witness Protection (2012)

"There are laughs in it, according to the enthusiastic audience I saw it with, but they're pretty spaced out and belong to Madea. What happens between them is unremarkable." ‐

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

"Aside from the 3D animation looking fantastic and the film having a dark, complex feel to it that makes it feel more grown up, the primary reason worth watching is Andrew Garfield." ‐

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)
