Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) "Like the Civil War re-enactments featured in the final action scene, it all looks insane on the surface, but has a mighty power to suck you in. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Feb 14, 2013
2/5 12% Safe Haven (2013) "Safe Haven doesn't have a whole lot to offer, with a plot so familiar and stars so uninterested in each other, and its resolution only undermines what it's truly best at being-- a cheap North Carolina vacation. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Feb 14, 2013
3.5/5 83% Side Effects (2013) "A twisty and surprisingly sexy thriller that, despite its heat, is actually about how cold and disconnected the world can be. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Feb 5, 2013
2/5 31% Gangster Squad (2013) "Gangster Squad is bloody, sloppy and far dumber than it looks, a Hollywood spectacle of slo-mo bullets and explosions perfectly calibrated to be soulless. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

3/5 62% Jack Reacher (2012) "Jack Reacher errs on the side of taking itself too seriously, and in simplifying the story becomes more of a standard-issue action thriller-- while most of us know that Reacher and Cruise are capable of something more " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Dec 19, 2012
3/5 60% 10 Years (2012) "To hate 10 Years is like hating the enthusiastic girl who organizes your high school reunion-- can you really be so mean when so much effort was made and a reasonably good time was had by all? " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Dec 5, 2012
5/5 92% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) "Telling a nearly three-hour story with an ending everyone knows, Bigelow and Boal have managed to craft one of the most intense and intellectually challenging films of the year. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 4, 2012
4/5 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) "For its occasional moments of excess and unhurried pace, An Unexpected Journey is proof that Jackson still has a knack for stories in this world. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

78% Flight (2012) "Flight is a messy return to live-action filmmaking for Zemeckis, but its strongest scenes -- and especially that plane crash -- are reason enough to be glad he's back. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

Posted Oct 4, 2012
3/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) "As energetic children's entertainment with a twist it works fine, but Frankenweenie has the elements to go further before it settles for something that feels too familiar. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

Posted Sep 21, 2012
4/5 85% The Master (2012) "The Master is unforgettable, but like the mercurial men at its center, the harder you try to read into it, the more it slips away into the distance. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

4/5 67% Lawless (2012) "Shot through with good humor that balances out the blackness, and performances that liven up even rote plots of revenge, Lawless earns its detours and minor missteps, a late-summer surprise with unpredictable power. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 28, 2012
2/5 50% Hit & Run (2012) "It probably was fun to drive all these hot cars around California, and make a movie with your friends and sacrifice plot logic for better jokes. But where's the fun for the audience in all that? " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 22, 2012
3.5/5 64% Cosmopolis (2012) "It helps to let yourself get lost in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, which adapts Don Delillo's novel and clings hard to the inscrutable, arcane language, which very deliberately keeps the audience at arm's length " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 20, 2012
3/5 66% The Expendables 2 (2012) "The Expendables 2 isn't nearly clever enough to operate as an actual action movie as well as a parody of one, but it is a good amount of fun. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 15, 2012

4.5/5 80% Magic Mike (2012) "What's probably most impressive about the work Steven Soderbergh does, directing from Reid Carolin's script, is that it's got the glitz and the heavy character study, without sacrificing either. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

Posted Jun 21, 2012
2.5/5 55% Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) "Lorene Scafaria never nails down a tone for this rambling road trip romance, tossing together some dark humor, some rom-com contrivances and some last-minute sap for an uncomfortable, never quite satisfying combination. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

Posted Jun 5, 2012
2.5/5 49% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) "Sanders has approached a classic fairy tale with a few strong visual ideas and a very game Charlize Theron, and it's almost impressive how little he's managed to make of it. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted May 30, 2012
3.5/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) "With lots of good jokes and very funny child actors, plus adults who carry the emotional weight the children cannot, Moonrise Kingdom has elements that hold up to the best of what Anderson has done " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
