Brave (2012)

"This Pixar film may not boast the pitch-perfect storytelling of Ratatouille or Incredibles, but it has belly laughs aplenty and a story that'll resonate like a choir of bagpipes for generations to come." ‐E! Online

The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)

"If you crave an animated adventure that isn't dumbed down, this is for you -- a pirate adventure in the spirit of Wallace and Gromit." ‐E! Online

The Three Stooges (2012)

"The guys anchoring the latest iteration of The Three Stooges make every bark and eye-poke look like second nature." ‐E! Online

The Hunger Games (2012)

"Ross delivers the dystopian excitement in high style, mixing naturalistic action with retro-futuristic production design that is sure to draw Oscar honors." ‐E! Online

The Switch (2010)

"The story is boosted by some decent acting and a few genuine laughs, but not enough to justify the cost of a theater ticket." ‐E! Online

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"Much like the graphic novels that inspired it, the movie is as much a love letter to video games as it is a smart romantic comedy." ‐E! Online

Babies (2010)

"It isn't for everybody, but this documentary about four newborns from far corners of the Earth does a terrific job of illustrating just how diverse an infant's first year can be." ‐E! Online

The Back-up Plan (2010)

"A weak leading man, an overly manipulative script and a tired retread of the motherhood genre reduce the movie to a late-night Lifetime TV rerun waiting to happen." ‐E! Online

C- 20%

The Last Song (2010)

"Sparks has said he wrote this whole shebang for Cyrus, so it's maybe unfair to ask more from a film that's clearly a vehicle. No need to make a star push the boundaries when you can set up another shot of her pouting into the sun, wind whipping her hair." ‐E! Online

How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

"Swift action, a smart script, stunning animation and capable set of voice actors come together for a movie that soars." ‐E! Online

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010)

"Much of the book's cartoony charm gets lost in the conversion to live action, and we're left with a coming-of-age comedy that just feels aged." ‐E! Online

Remember Me (2010)

"If you thought New Moon was genius, this movie will be your Casablanca." ‐E! Online

Valentine's Day (2010)

"With few exceptions, Marshall presents each star at the maximum of his or her talents; in the few precious moments when Roberts owns the screen, she also owns the whole movie." ‐E! Online

Leap Year (2010)

"[Adams] walks a tightrope between vulnerable and prickly, with very little aid from a script that seems hell-bent on making the world want to kill her." ‐E! Online

Youth in Revolt (2010)

"Finally reveals a new side of Cera that has been years and years in coming. It's nice to see that the kid has range, and range he has got." ‐E! Online

It's Complicated (2009)

"Even Streep doesn't seem to know what to do with her character except laugh -- the only person, living or celluloid, in the theater doing so." ‐E! Online

Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009)

"As much as these two characters talk, there's little worth sharing with the wider world beyond hey-you-slept-with-somebody." ‐E! Online

Brothers (2009)

"Deft acting -- hello Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman --saves the flick from wallowing too deeply into melodrama." ‐E! Online

The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

"If you fixate on funny things like plot and character -- in movies, anyway -- too bad." ‐E! Online

Bandslam (2009)

"Whenever the music is playing, it's tough to fight the urge to rock out right in your theater seat." ‐E! Online

Julie & Julia (2009)

"If Ephron finds any parity in the tilting that Powell does at this edible windmill, she doesn't share it with the audience." ‐E! Online

Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009)

"Parents will find their suspension of disbelief stretched thinner than a beanpole at the movie's climax, though the kiddie target audience will likely walk away enchanted by the overall message of hometown goodwill." ‐E! Online

Pink Panther 2 (2009)

"The second take featuring Steve Martin as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau occasionally -- only occasionally -- gets a clue, thanks to The Pink Panther 2's strong cast and the intermittent cute line." ‐E! Online
