2/4 48% Love and Other Drugs (2010) For all the breast-baring and butt-flashing, Love & Other Drugs is a surprisingly unsexy flick. - amNewYork EDIT

94% The King's Speech (2010) Hooper manages to balance humor and sentiment in a manner that is both artful and crowd-pleasing. - amNewYork EDIT

4/4 93% 127 Hours (2010) Boyle's hyperkinetic filmmaking pumps amazing energy into a movie with very few changes of scenery. - amNewYork EDIT

3.5/4 91% Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer (2010) Client 9 takes a salacious anecdote and contextualizes it against a broader, much more sinister political landscape. - amNewYork EDIT

2.5/4 79% Tiny Furniture (2010) Though it wallows inordinately in uncertainty and twee affectations, Tiny Furniture does succeed in capturing a distinct sense of limbo. - amNewYork EDIT

2.5/4 86% Unstoppable (2010) It's hard not to appreciate the movie's urgency when [Tony] Scott is constantly reminding you of how fast, monstrous and out of control the rogue train is. - amNewYork EDIT

3/4 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) Whereas previous Harry Potter films skewed toward sanitized, pat storytelling, Deathly Hallows is a grittier depiction of a world in despair. - amNewYork EDIT

2.5/4 51% The Next Three Days (2010) Paul Haggis simulates complexity by employing cheap twists and thrills. - amNewYork EDIT

2/4 38% Inhale (2010) The strained and confusing story compromises the film's more thoughtful qualities. - amNewYork EDIT

3/4 95% Boxing Gym (2010) Wiseman's intuitive camerawork captures a meditative beauty in all those shuffling feet, jabbing fists and hustling bodies. - amNewYork EDIT

2/4 49% Stone (2010) Stone is a mildly titillating psychological thriller that benefits from a likable cast. Too bad the cast couldn't benefit from a better script. - amNewYork EDIT

2.5/4 58% It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) As much as you want to take Craig's depression seriously, it's hard to tell just how seriously the film is taking it. - amNewYork EDIT

2/4 47% Hereafter (2010) The script barely manages to get characters from point A to point B, and it's by the grace of the actors' talent that any emotion surfaces at all. - amNewYork EDIT
