3/5 49% No Strings Attached (2011) There's plenty to like about No Strings Attached, enough that you'll wish it had been done better.‐

4/5 43% The Green Hornet (2011) As much a comedy as it is an action movie, actually it's better than that, it's one of the all too rare modern movies which manages to be both. ‐

3.5/5 51% Tron Legacy (2010) When the movie works, characters and visuals and sound come together, sync up and create an unbelievable, almost magical cinematic rhythm unlike anything you've ever experienced before.‐

5/5 70% TRON (1982) Tron didn't just come up with a new special effects, it came up with new things to use those new kinds of special effects on.‐

2.5/5 20% The Tourist (2010) Tries to make up for the story's complete lack of significance or motion with some very nice scenery and a few very nice people. It does that so well that at times, it's almost enough.‐

4.5/5 87% Black Swan (2010) A stellar performance, both for its physicality and its subtlety. It's the best of Natalie Portman's career. ‐

2.5/5 43% Faster (2010) It's not particularly good, but at least The Rock isn't wearing a tutu. ‐

4.5/5 52% The Next Three Days (2010) One of the best movies of the year. ‐
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2010
3/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) Good enough, even for those of us who have no idea what's going on once the plot resorts to Potterbabble. ‐

4/5 87% Unstoppable (2010) Unstoppable is a surprisingly taut and entertaining train thriller which takes old ideas and breathes modern life into them.‐

4/5 73% Megamind (2010) What Megamind lacks in apparent laughter it makes up for in sheer cleverness.‐

2.5/5 40% Due Date (2010) None of what they're doing ever actually means anything. ‐
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2010
4/5 93% 127 Hours (2010) 127 Hours is the kind of movie you absolutely must see once and then, battered and broken, you'll never want to see it again.‐

4/5 87% Buried (2010) Buried works not because Ryan Reynolds is good (he is) but because director Rodrigo Cortes is even better.‐

2/5 64% Jackass 3 (2010) It's so celebratory that fans will probably be happy, but I miss the danger. I miss wondering how no one in this movie ended up dead.‐

2.5/5 9% My Soul to Take (2010) Just another Wes Craven kills kids running around in the woods movie. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2010
1.5/5 63% Secretariat (2010) Secretariat all but ignores the horse it’s named after in favor of telling the tedious, mostly irrelevant story of his owner.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2010
4/5 88% Let Me In (2010) Let Me In may not be its own movie, but it's good just the same.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2010
2.5/5 50% Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) On a visual level, there's nothing else in theaters like this.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2010
4/5 55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) A spectacularly well made film without any real answers, and a lot of questions which have already been asked.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2010
2.5/5 52% Devil (2010) A capably directed murder mystery in confined spaces.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2010
1.5/5 23% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) An adaptation which will soon feel decades behind its time.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2010
2/5 53% I'm Still Here (2010) Increasingly annoying, deluded, mumbling narcissism. Joaquin Phoenix may still be here, somewhere, but I no longer care. ‐
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2010
3.5/5 72% Machete (2010) Machete's politics are a cringe-worthy mess but when it comes to over-the-top fun his blade is razor sharp.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2010
52% The Winning Season (2010) A film that feels fresh and insightful in a generally pretty played out genre.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2010
1.5/5 28% Takers (2010) The logical result of watching Heat over and over and over until your brain burns out, and then wondering what it would look like if the whole thing were remade as a Smirnoff Vodka commercial.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2010
1.5/5 4% Vampires Suck (2010) The best recent parody movie. Not because it's good, but because it's only unbelievably boring while the others were unbearably irritating. ‐

41% The Expendables (2010) Fathers, don't let your sons grow up without The Expendables.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2010

Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2010
3/5 64% Predators (2010) Predators sets out to pay homage to the original movie by echoing it, but instead it mostly ends up duplicating it.‐ Giant Freakin Robot

3.5/5 6% The Last Airbender (2010) It's worth putting up with M. Night the writer to enjoy the work of M. Night the director.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2010
3/5 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) An endless conversation about an immature, moody, generally unlikable, teenage girl's feelings. Please Bella, grow up.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2010
2.5/5 52% Knight & Day (2010) The premise is tired, the tone doesn't exactly work, and I honestly still have no idea why it's called Knight and Day.‐

2.5/5 12% Jonah Hex (2010) Jonah Hex would hate this movie. He would make fun of this movie.‐

5/5 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) I walked out of Toy Story 3 feeling as if my heart was too full. Pixar has already given us two utterly perfect Toy Story movies, yet this may be the best one yet.‐

3/5 74% Splice (2010) It's hard to care about what's happening, when you don't care about the people it's happening to.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2010
2.5/5 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) There's no sense of wonder in Prince of Persia and that's a shame because it's a film which should be built almost entirely on wonder.‐
Read More | Posted May 27, 2010
3/5 58% Shrek Forever After (2010) You've seen Shrek and it was good. If you want to know what Shrek would be like if it wasn't good, then see Shrek Forever After. ‐

3.5/5 72% Iron Man 2 (2010) It's easy to talk about what Iron Man 2 doesn't do, but what it does do is so full of energy and genuine enthusiasm that it's hard to imagine anyone walking out unhappy.‐

1/5 18% The Back-up Plan (2010) One of the ten most terrifying movie experiences of my life.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2010
74% Micmacs (Micmacs à tire-larigot) (2010) It's like every American's worst nightmare of what France must be like.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2010
2/5 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) A last-minute, gimmicky, careless money grab.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2010
2.5/5 76% Kick-Ass (2010) Kick-Ass wraps itself realism, promising to show us what it's like when real people do what superheroes do, and then it turns into a cartoon.‐

4.5/5 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) How to Train Your Dragon takes its audience on a fire-breathing, dipping, diving ride and never looks back.‐

Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2010
82% American: The Bill Hicks Story (2011) See this movie. Force people you know to see it with you. Drag them kicking and screaming.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2010
64% Harry Brown (2010) Harry Brown is a vicious entry into the tried and true revenge formula. Michael Caine, no matter how old he gets, will always be able to kick your butt.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2010
3/5 47% MacGruber (2010) An unending string of easy scatological jokes which it executes really, really well.‐
