Letter to Jane: An Investigation About a Still (Lettre à Jane) (1972)

"Letter to Jane, despite its rigor, is strangely more watchable than most of Godard's post-1968 output."

Tuesday, After Christmas (2011)

"If Tuesday, After Christmas has a flaw, it is its lack of subtext."

Just Go with It (2011)

"It's as if everyone involved, with the exception of Kidman, would gladly have you forget the film the moment it ended."

Extremities (1986)

"It at once wants to be a feminist tract against the exploitation of women and a vessel that showcases that exploitation."

Country Strong (2011)

"[B]y the time Country Strong ends, it has largely defeated the feel-good buzz from its subplots involving puppy love and charity."

The Roommate (2011)

"A timid psychological study with no plausible psychology at work, the film is remarkable in its emptiness."

The Biggest Chinese Restaurant in the World (2008)

"Taken as a whole, it's as trivial as anything in the Guiness Book of World Records."

Catfish (2010)

"Bravely charging into uncharted territory and confronting emotions that would be easier to ignore, Catfish emerges as an unexpectedly compassionate work."

Machete (2010)

"For its first hour, Machete really gives hope that the concept, which started as a three minute trailer, could be sustained for an entire feature film."

39/100 92%

Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster (2011)

"Its blatant recycling of the plot structure of its predecessor combined with its complete lack of further development of any of its characters, makes the overall film a tedious sit."

MacGruber (2010)

"It achieves wit in a realm where stupidity is too often deemed sufficient."

The American (2010)

"For those willing to accept a slower pace, even if the resulting film is not exactly contemplative, The American could be a pleasurable experience."

Feng gui lai de ren (All the Youthful Days) (1983)

"There are bits here, like the one in which Ah-Ching traces an outline around a dead insect, trapped between a notebook's pages, and triggers a memory, which would be evocative by anyone's standards."

City After Dark (Manila by Night) (1980)

"A histrionic melodrama that plays out on an epic scale, it genuinely warrants comparisons to the great works of the Italian neorealists and Altman's Nashville."

Vampires Suck (2010)

"Obviously, Vampires Suck is not a good film, but that it's not a complete and total abomination makes the attempt feel like something close to progress for its creators."

Get Low (2010)

"Modest to the point of nothingness, Aaron Schneider's debut feature Get Low mistakes simplicity for authenticity."

Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill! (2006)

"Easter Bunny Kill! Kill! starts out with a degree of ambition that it eventually backs away from. Still, it manages to mine discomfort from a genre that all too often feels rote."

The Resurrected (1991)

"An assured but sadly neglected independent horror film."

Lourdes (2010)

"An odd, dispassionate religious film that will likely be more powerful for skeptics than true believers, it manages to most strongly suggest the possibility of grace by so clinically observing its opposite."

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

"[It] embraces its formulaic premise, but then resists developing in formulaic directions, resulting in one of the most refreshing and honest screen comedies of recent memory."

41/100 10%

Grown Ups (2010)

"Its embrace of the compromises involved in pursuing the American dream is a message designed to placate the masses, but it offers more of a message than most comedies manage to impart, which must count for something."

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)

"[W]hile the film offers silly fun for a while, its ultimate schizophrenia and self-seriousness become its undoing."

"Just when you think you've sat through all of the perversion that the horror genre has to offer, along comes A Serbian Film to reveal that there are still boundaries waiting to be pushed."

Shirin (2009)

"It powerfully reminds us of the persuasiveness of art as it simultaneously stresses the humanist perspective of its singular, innovative creator."

Predators (2010)

"What it lacks in imagination, it makes up in execution. It fulfills its limited potential, which is more than can be said of most of this summer's movies."

The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto de Sus Ojos) (2010)

"Campanella's work here is certainly polished and well-acted, but there's little that one can do with hoary material like this. The secrets that it holds are scarcely worth discovering."

I Love You Phillip Morris (2010)

"Defined by puppy love, a crude sense of humor, and rampant immorality, the characters here are as repulsive and shallow as the film that contains them."

The Karate Kid (2010)

"An inspirational movie that has little inspiration to call its own."

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

"Eclipse is an unfortunate entry in a franchise that, while certainly flawed, had at least built up some dramatic momentum over the course of its first two installments."

After Dark Horrorfest: Dread (2010)

"A bit too concerned with gore to really grapple with the concept of dread, but too full of dialogue to be genuinely thrilling"

A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010)

"While A Prophet might lack the ambiguity and the moral complexity to make it a classic of its genre, it is an excellent work by most standards."

Sleeping Dogs Lie (2005)

"Anchored, and essentially redeemed, by a fearless performance from Melinda Page Hamilton, Sleeping Dogs Lie has little else to recommend it from a creative level."

An Education (2009)

"... attempts to impress audiences with its worldliness, but it comes off instead as an awkward, unformed teen fantasy run amok."

Looking for Eric (2010)

"A magical realist comedy that flirts uncomfortably with serious drama at times, the film sees its veteran director fouling due to an unsure grip on his material."

The Devil Rides Out (1968)

"With Fisher, arguably the auteur of Hammer Studios, behind the camera, and one of its top stars in front of it, the film works on all levels and truly earns its reputation as a classic of British horror."

Trilogy of Terror (1975)

"By the time the Zuni fetish doll bursts onto the screen and worms its way into your nightmares (or your heart), you'll be fully convinced that you've seen at least one-third of a genre classic."

Ip Man (2010)

"First and foremost, Ip Man is an excuse for Yen to demonstrate his newfound mastery of the Wing Chun style. On that front, the film succeeds brilliantly."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

"The CG-enhancements are so omnipresent here that they soon become the very opposite of "special" effects."

The Killer Inside Me (2010)

"A classic crime novel is given an adaptation that pulls no punches"

Nowhere Boy (2010)

"[S]omewhat touching, but since we go into this exercise with full awareness of Lennon's future, dramatic tension is nowhere to be found."

San suk si gin (The Shinjuku Incident) (2009)

"Shinjuku Incident strains for social significance, but it is too timidly produced to risk depicting any recognizable reality."

Knight & Day (2010)

"It is never less than light on its feet, even as its body count climbs into the dozens."

Toy Story 3 (2010)

"At best, Toy Story 3 stands as a refinement of Toy Story 2, a movie which was an unnecessary sequel to begin with."

Cyrus (2010)

"Too sunny, and too kind, to be classified as a black comedy, Cyrus chooses tidiness and warmth over any truly biting message or frank appraisal of its characters."

Winter's Bone (2010)

"While Winter's Bone hardly exploits the poor in its depiction of them, its decision to focus on Bree while showing audiences their world seems like an artistic compromise."

Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (2010)

"A Piece of Work does a solid job of deepening our understanding of Rivers, but its accomplishments pretty much end there."

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Happiness (1934)

"Both less stodgy and more outrageous than the rest of the Russian silent film canon, Happiness is political cinema at its finest, and funniest."

The Unloved (2009)

"The Unloved is a promising debut for director Morton, but it's sometimes too sensitive where it should be insightful."
