Ruby Sparks (2012)

"Where's writer's block when you really need it?" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 51%

Savages (2012)

"For a mess, "Savages" is a big, bloody, crazy, beautiful mess, featuring enough visual fireworks to restart the Fourth of July." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Lola Versus (2012)

""Lola Versus" is a heavyweight fight Gerwig just can't win." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 90%

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

"Unlike time travel or jet-setting, "Safety Not Guaranteed" shows that making movies can still be more about the journey than the destination. Whether or not you have first-class tickets." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 21, 2012
2.5/4 57%

Hysteria (2012)

"Unlike the similar comedy "The Road to Wellville," "Hysteria" never reaches a fever pitch, mostly because of its predictable Merchant/Ivory-Soap plotting." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

1.5/4 34%

Battleship (2012)

"Berg does his best to emulate Michael Bay's timeless military-fetish-meets-farting-robots aesthetic, but he never succeeds at putting together an action set-piece that clicks." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 17, 2012
3/4 85%

The Raid: Redemption (2012)

"Lots of action movies hand out 3-D glasses at the door, but tickets for "The Raid: Redemption" should come with a defibrillator." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 12, 2012
2/4 26%

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

"A sequel nobody asked for, except for some really hard-core Pegasus fans and Hollywood studio execs who would turn wallpaper into a trilogy if the rights were available." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 29, 2012
3/4 66%

Friends With Kids (2012)

"The horror that real-life parents survive every day is far too frightening for any movie monster, but "Friends With Kids" unearths humor amid all the gory details." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 8, 2012
1/4 28%

Project X (2012)

""Project X" is "Animal House" for the YouTube generation - that is, if "Animal House" actually was about torturing animals while innocent bystanders got tased, all without ever being, you know, funny." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 1, 2012
2/4 43%

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012)

"The sequel to 2008's "Journey to the Center of the Earth" isn't a movie so much as an amusement-park ride without the park. Or much grown-up amusement." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 9, 2012
2/4 29%

The Vow (2012)

"In "The Vow," love means never having to say "Who are you? What are you doing in my house?"" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

1.5/4 51%

Contraband (2012)

"The film would have been more interesting if Wahlberg was a retired mime who had to escape one last invisible box." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Young Adult (2011)

"Theron and Oswalt play their scenes with an unflinching earnestness worthy of all the award-season buzz." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

New Year's Eve (2011)

"Make it your New Year's resolution to see something other than "New Year's Eve."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 29%

Machine Gun Preacher (2011)

""Machine Gun Preacher" feels inspiring, but never inspired. Which is the difference between a great story and a great film." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 6, 2011
3.5/4 92%

Drive (2011)

"As taut a film as you're likely to see in theaters this year. And it easily leaves other street-racing movies of its kind in the dust, even classics like "Vantage Point" and "Two-Lane Blacktop."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 15, 2011
3/4 76%

The Debt (2011)

"Matthew Vaughn, whose "X-Men: First Class" was similarly groovy, co-wrote and produced "The Debt," and director John Madden takes a shot at Vaughn's action-a-go-go look." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 30, 2011
2/4 72%

Fright Night (2011)

""Fright Night" always seems to be heading toward another obligatory uninspired set piece, including a too-dark-to-see-in-3-D car chase and too-boring-to-care basement stakeout, both of which dilute the movie's Coumadin-thin metaphors about adolescence." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 18, 2011
2.5/4 72%

Sarah's Key (2011)

"A heartbreaking portrayal of the difference between disagreement and distrust." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Another Earth (2011)

"In space, no one can hear you scream, but in "Another Earth," no one can hear you mumble." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 11, 2011
2/4 21%

Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011)

""Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" wants to be "The Color Purple" in China, but it's really just a Lifetime Original Movie with subtitles." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 28, 2011
2/4 18%

The Art of Getting By (2011)

"Not all motion pictures are worth a thousand words. "The Art of Getting By" isn't even worth the price of a movie ticket." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 17, 2011
3.5/4 92%

Incendies (2011)

"Begins with a promise and ends with revelations so combustible they'll consume anyone who uncovers the truth." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 26, 2011
2.5/4 77%

Fast Five (2011)

""The Fast and the Furious" 2011 model comes fully loaded, with enough power under the hood to almost compensate for its lack of innovation." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 28, 2011
2/4 36%

Prom (2011)

"Basically, it's "When Hilary Duff Met 1993 Eddie Vedder."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Hanna (2011)

"Wright knows how to tell a story; he just doesn't seem to know how to tell this one." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Music Never Stopped (2011)

"Director Jim Kohlberg misses a few beats, but more amplitude would have been appreciated." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Source Code (2011)

"This adrenaline-drenched thriller stars Jake Gyllenhaal in the performance of his career." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Paul (2011)

""Paul" embraces sci-fi culture with gleeful abandon. Anybody who catches its "Mac and Me" reference earned their laughter years ago." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 17, 2011
2/4 70%

Limitless (2011)

"The problem with "Limitless," other than its lack of Muppets, is a charismatic but unappealing protagonist." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 17, 2011

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

""The Adjustment Bureau" is what "Inception" might have been like if it were written by Nicholas Sparks." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 3, 2011
1.5/4 33%

I Am Number Four (2011)

"A low-budget "Twilight" knockoff made by people, including director D.J. Caruso ("Eagle Eye") and producer Michael Bay, who obviously have no idea why "Twilight" is so popular - or even how actual human beings behave and talk." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 17, 2011
2/4 39%

The Eagle (2011)

""The Eagle's" sweeping score and grand cinematography are reminders of that old saying: When in ancient Rome, do as Ridley Scott does." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 10, 2011
3.5/4 43%

The Green Hornet (2011)

"A joy ride of a film that evades the self-consciousness that stalls so many other recent comic-book adaptations, it is one of the best superhero movies ever." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 13, 2011
1.5/4 52%

The Next Three Days (2010)

"One thing's for certain: "The Next Three Days" was not made because somebody involved had a story to tell." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3.5/4 98%

Inside Job (2010)

"Anybody who owns a wallet, a purse, a mattress or combination safe should see "Inside Job."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Unstoppable (2010)

"Basically, it's like if Thomas the Tank Engine was an angry drunk, and James and Percy had to take away his keys before he killed somebody." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Red (2010)

"RED positively dares you not to have a good time." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 14, 2010

Catfish (2010)

"Want to know the truth about Catfish? Either way, it's one of the most resonant, haunting, provocative movies I've seen this year." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 30, 2010
2.5/4 55%

Mao's Last Dancer (2010)

"Mao's Last Dancer is such a profoundly moving story, it's hard not to get drawn in as Li must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice for his American dream." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 30, 2010
1.5/4 32%

A Woman, A Gun and a Noodle Shop (San qiang pai an jing qi) (A Simple Noodle Story) (The First Gun) (2010)

"Simultaneously frantic and dull, Noodle Shop has no hint of the restraint or meticulous concern with form exhibited in Zhang's earlier blockbusters." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 30, 2010
2.5/4 66%

The American (2010)

"While Corbijn attempts to humanize his espionage thriller, genre expectations too often disarm what could have been hair-trigger drama." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Takers (2010)

"Each close-up competes to be the closest, until everything looks like Batman getting dressed." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Babies (2010)

"Its cuteness-quotient fried my cute-ometer after maybe 10 minutes, when the third adorable kitten tumbled onscreen." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Joneses (2010)

"FX's under-viewed cable series >The Riches did everything that's here years ago, with more lucidity." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Greenberg (2010)

"A comedy that is so cozily Zen that its subdued laughs might qualify as relaxation exercises." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Chloe (2010)

"Sure it's a bit much. But just try tearing your eyes away from the screen." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Brooklyn's Finest (2010)

Posted Mar 4, 2010
3/4 48%

The Book of Eli (2010)

"A gorgeously illustrated picture-book of landscapes made barren by politicized religion, where faith is salvation's last frontier." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
