Restless (2011)

Contagion (2011)

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)

"Don't put yourself through this train wreck of a movie. Unless of course you enjoy feeling like the screenwriter is hovering at your elbow during the film screaming "GET IT?!" after every joke." ‐

Shark Night 3D (2011)

Colombiana (2011)

"The movie is like a lady who can't choose between two suitors: the campy and fun one, or the serious and cliché one." ‐

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011)

Our Idiot Brother (2011)

"Somehow the script manages to eke out enough new jokes and sweet moments to help me hang in there with Ned, and Elizabeth Banks makes a deliciously despicable Miranda." ‐

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

"Usually when a movie includes so many interesting parts, it amounts to a pretty good time. However, the result here never gels." ‐

30 Minutes or Less (2011)

"Even with all these talented performers, I was left with no sympathy for Nick's predicament -- the movie was way more painful than whatever he went through" ‐

Final Destination 5 (2011)

"These movies are starting to cross over into pure genius territory with their ever-evolving sense of self awareness and addition of 3D." ‐

3.5/5 73%

Bellflower (2011)

"Replete with occasional moments of grunge on the lens and other clear indicators of its ultra-indie origins, Bellflower is not perfect, it's post-perfect... which is exactly the way reality feels right about now." ‐

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

"Although the CG started out a little shaky, Andy Serkis and his motion capture work quickly won me over as Caesar aged. I completely forgot I wasn't watching a real ape take everything over. In fact, he became my favorite character." ‐

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011)

"The splendidly mixed and visually overstimulating movie might make your head explode on the spot, Scanners style." ‐

The Change-Up (2011)

"Put in the hands of less competent actors, this movie would have been completely skippable. However, since they both hold their own and the jokes are surprisingly biting, it ends up being tolerable." ‐

Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

"If you were curious about this movie because you thought there might be more to it than the obvious, don't overthink it -- the title truly is all you're going to get." ‐

Another Earth (2011)

"This is the coolest science fiction movie I have seen in a long time, because it's just masquerading as a story about a new planet with bizarro versions of us." ‐

The Smurfs (2011)

"When pointless movies like this come out, I can't help but wonder what these talented artists could have been doing besides earning this paycheck." ‐

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

"It actually went so far as to remind me of days of old, where action heroes were valiant and adorable, and you just want them to kick the bad guy's butts and get the girl." ‐

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011)

"This HP 7.2 makes a great case for lifting the entire third act out of a picture and just making that your sequel." ‐

Monte Carlo (2011)

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

"As the credits rolled, however, I was so amped up over the extreme violence and non-stop assault on my senses, I realized that this is what Romans must have felt like just after they partook in their entertainment." ‐

Larry Crowne (2011)

"This is a sweet movie. It's so sweet, in fact, that it made me realize how cynical I've gotten over time." ‐

A Better Life (2011)

Cars 2 (2011)

"Unless you have a kid in tow who wants to see about 75 new cars that you'll later have to buy for them in toy form, this movie isn't a must-see." ‐
