The Last Exorcism (2010)

"If you ignore the marketing, this is actually a clever and creepy (if ultimately pointless) little thriller possessed by the soul of a horror movie." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Lottery Ticket (2010)

"Sweet, and very noisy, ensemble comedy lives up to its premise when it sticks closely to its neighborhood and its characters." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Expendables (2010)

"There's a lot in this nostalgic Sylvester Stallone actioner that lives up to its title - the recycled plot, the forgettable characters, the monotonous violence - but it's an undeniable kick to see these vets in action." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Other Guys (2010)

"The humor in this big budget action-comedy is a lot like one of its many chase scenes: the jokes fly like bullets, some hit the target and some don't, but in the end they get the job done." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Step Up 3 (2010)

"The 3D, as well as the rehashed plot, do little to enhance the frequently phenomenal dancing in this third "Step Up" film." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Restrepo (2010)

"Sebastian Junger's chronicle of a fourteen-month mission in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley isn't much of a documentary, but the undeniably harrowing footage should be required viewing." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"A perfectly stupid and ultimately forgettable comedy from director Jay Roach that will, nonetheless, have you laughing even as the film dissolves from your memory." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Salt (2010)

"Angelina Jolie's half-baked actioner feels like it was unearthed from some pre-Iron Curtain time capsule. Maybe back then we would've bought the wildly improbable plot." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Predators (2010)

"It's no "Aliens", but it does have an intriguing setup, good pace and a surprisingly action-ready Adrien Brody." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

X2: X-Men United (2003)

"'X' hits the spot." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Knocked Up (2007)

"A surprisingly sincere look at male-female Mars-Venusness in these 00s. It's funny alright, but not in the way you might think." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Punisher (2004)

"Standard, styleless revenge fantasy." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

"Relentlessly silly but not quite funny parody of 70s network news never quite lives up to its promise." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Grown Ups (2010)

"A bunch of funny guys goof their way through the thinnest of plots in a bucolic setting. It plays like watching someone else's vacation footage." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Jonah Hex (2010)

"This comic book adaptation is an ill-defined mess of a film that attempts to shoehorn its character into a superhero "origin story" with vague hints of the supernatural." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead (2010)

"A clever title in search of a movie to support it, this playful mash-up of Shakespeare and vampires aims for the type of brain-twisting meta-plot that Charlie Kaufman has all but monopolized. Mr. Kaufman makes it look easy. It's not." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The A-Team (2010)

"What this 80s redo lacks in common sense it more than makes up for in sheer nostalgic, explosion-filled mayhem." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Get Him to the Greek (2010)

"Russell Brand's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" character gets a movie all his own. The result is, as you might imagine, too much of a good thing." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

"This mildly diverting video game adaptation strives to be nothing more than exactly that. It's both comforting in its predictability and depressing in its lack of ambition." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

MacGruber (2010)

"This SNL adaptation misses even the most obvious of opportunities. What's left is as pieced together as one of its hero's many "gadgets"." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Best Worst Movie (2010)

"Sweetly amusing documentary about the making of the oft-debated worst movie of all time, "Troll 2", is solely for fans who are in on the joke." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Iron Man 2 (2010)

"Director Jon Favreau's light touch and Robert Downey Jr.'s gift with a wisecrack continue to make this superhero franchise good, noisy fun." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Kick-Ass (2010)

"When a movie's called "Kick-Ass", the best you can hope for is that it lives up to its name. This one lives up to it, and then kicks its ass." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Date Night (2010)

"Harmless action-comedy rests on the considerable comedic shoulders of its two stars but generates few real laughs." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Clash of the Titans (2010)

"An unnecessary 3D upgrade and choppy script make Louis Leterrier's update of the 1981 camp classic an Olympian missed opportunity." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)

"This raunchy, 80s-soaked comedy is every bit as funny as a movie called "Hot Tub Time Machine" should be. Which is to say, quite a bit." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Repo Men (2010)

"Grisly, humorless and over-long, this sci-fi thriller about the repossession of artificial organs isn't nearly as interesting, clever or original as it wants to be." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

1.5/4 27%

Remember Me (2010)

"Angst-ridden, wanna-be tear-jerker - featuring Robert Pattinson as another tortured, brooding James Dean-type - doesn't come close to earning its big payoff." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

"The most wondrous thing about director Tim Burton's take on the Lewis Carroll classic is how lacking in wonder it all is." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Cop Out (2010)

"Desperately unfunny, tone-deaf homage to 80s buddy cop movies from director Kevin Smith - just one of the many who should have known better." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Wolfman (2010)

"This been-there-mauled-that monster movie gets points for being loud and rather bloody, but it still hasn't found a way to make werewolves interesting." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Book of Eli (2010)

"Another lone traveler wanders another post-apocalyptic landscape. This time, he carries a book. Who is this man and what's with the book? If that question is enough to keep you interested for two hours, you're all set." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Daybreakers (2010)

"I'm as surprised as anyone, but this clever vampire movie from the Spierig Brothers proves the genre still has some bite left in it." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

"Guy Ritchie's frenzied, over-long "reimagining" of the much-adapted Conan Doyle character isn't quite the blasphemy you'd think, thanks to a solid cast and Robert Downey Jr's inherent likability as the title." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Avatar (2009)

"James Cameron's long-awaited, unspeakably expensive 3-D epic may not change the way we watch movies, but it's undeniably beautiful, engrossing, and sets a new bar in computer-generated animation. Not bad for the King of the World." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Invictus (2009)

The Road (2009)

"Oppressively, but appropriately, bleak adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's end-of-the-world novel about a father and son wandering a post-apocalyptic landscape. Points for strong performances from the two leads and the film's unyielding view of the end of day" ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Ninja Assassin (2009)

"Gleefully bloody martial arts tribute - about a renegade ninja hunted by his clan - makes "Kill Bill" look like an episode of "7th Heaven"." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Fourth Kind (2009)

Amelia (2009)

Where the Wild Things Are (2009)

"Spike Jonze's beautifully audacious and sadly flawed film brings Maurice Sendak's much-beloved, nine-sentence children's story to vivid, CGI-enhanced life. If only he had kept it a short story." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Couples Retreat (2009)

"On the surface, "Couples Retreat" appears to be a quickly stitched together comedy that places a bunch of likable actors in a tropical setting for some cheap laughs. And that's exactly what it is." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Zombieland (2009)

"The undead live on in this broad, crowd-pleasing - and gleefully gory - comedy about the inevitable "zombie apocalypse"." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Invention of Lying (2009)

"This high-concept comedy, about the first person to develop the ability to lie, is wildly uneven but features a few laughs, cameos galore, and an indictment of organized religion that would make Bill Maher proud." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Surrogates (2009)

"Like the titular avatars in this graphic novel adaptation, "Surrogates" is a rote whodunit masquerading as a techno-thriller." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

The Informant! (2009)

"Playful adaptation from Steven Soderbergh features Matt Damon, 30 pounds heavier, whose beautifully nuanced take on wide-eyed naiveté saves this otherwise pointless goof." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

"Delightfully witty, feature-length adaptation of the popular children's book doesn't have the emotional heft to take its place among the great animated classics, but when it rains it soars." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

Whiteout (2009)

"An adequate thriller - complete with scares, red herrings and a nonsensical twist-ending %u2013 which exploits its Antarctic surroundings for all their worth." ‐Big Picture Big Sound

9 (2009)

"Wondrously-imaginative, lightly-plotted fable about the stitch-work creations who outlive humanity in a post-apocalyptic wasteland." ‐Big Picture Big Sound
