Amour (2012)

"In a film that's so explicitly cathartic for the filmmaker, there's a whole lotta catharsis withheld for the audience. " ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

Gangster Squad (2013)

"While pretty and often entertaining, Gangster Squad's a violent urban western that gets lost in the fog of homage." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

Quartet (2013)

"A quick and charming story of late life revival so surprisingly lithe you'd hardly believe it was a directorial debut." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

Lincoln (2012)

"Somewhere in there, Lincoln will call upon [his administration's] faculties and better sense, and the film about him will ask something similar of us." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

Skyfall (2012)

"Solicits swoons like the best Bonds ever did, even if Bond's dangerously close to decommission." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

This is 40 (2012)

"Watching This is 40 actually feels like aging, which isn't precisely a draw." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

Playing for Keeps (2012)

"All the characters and their motivations are banal at best and half drawn at worst, leading to the question: why didn't this end up on The Hallmark Channel starring TV's hot-tail of the moment?" ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 18, 2013

The Last Gladiators (2013)

"In a way, this doc is Bully, grown up, and from the bully's perspective." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Bullet to the Head (2013)

"Walter Hill has lost none of his directorial prowess! " ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Warm Bodies (2013)

"I somehow think this "sensitive parable" took a little too much from Scott Pilgrim." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Side Effects (2013)

"Courtroom drama, forensic thriller, romantic murder mystery...It's as if the prescription for genre side effects is more genres." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Les Misérables (2012)

"The [film's] conclusion might be that tragedies deserve sympathy, not judgement...and I wish I could come to this conclusion myself but I saw a film directed by Tom Hooper." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Safe Haven (2013)

"I don't know when has the sexy south has ever looked dry." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)

"The action is intense but spiritless-it's heavy on fury and light on meaningful stakes." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

21 And Over (2013)

"Despite a few lulls in the middle, the jokes pop out like Pez, are seldom stale and feel so well delivered you don't mind the movie's total meaninglessness." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Dead Man Down (2013)

"The brightest attraction in this gripping potboiler is the cast, which is loaded to the gills with high pedigree actors like Isabelle Huppert, who comes just shy of stealing the show as Rapace's comically deaf mother. " ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

"If you liked Hugo you'll be pleased with Oz's coterie of zoopraxiscopes and praxinoscopes and zoetropes (Oh, my!)." ‐Movies With Butter
Posted Mar 15, 2013

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)

"Carrel looks too bored to "be that guy" anymore." ‐Movies With Butter

3.5/5 86%

The Master (2012)

"It's in the moments when these two actors fight, laugh, commune or defy each other that the film is most vital and out of control" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

3.5/5 41%

The Possession (2012)

"There's something oddly sweet at the center of this scary movie, and it's more than just Matisyahu" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

V/H/S (2012)

"Men are bastards, women are beasts and heroes are doomed" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure (2012)

"There's potential to this picture, even if the initial box office reaction is, well, terrible" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Apparition (2012)

"The soulless-ness of their empty plot of track homes and super-store existence invokes both Poltergeist and Employee of the Month." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

ParaNorman (2012)

"As a summer movie for the kids: protect your progeny. Nightmares and bedwetting are bad. But teaching your kids to take death casually is just bad parenting." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012)

"Doesn't mask its awe of the man, who comes off as a cross between a wise Buddha-figure and Santa Claus" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

4/5 100%

The Waiting Room (2012)

"There's more to it than a black-and-white political conclusion, and the laundry list of California documentary heroes in the credits suggests this film is humanist before it's agenda driven." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Wuthering Heights (2012)

"This film provides a striking and immersive feeling of place and the ache of desire." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding (2012)

"It's a great (if middle-of-the-road) family comedy to seek out." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

3.5/5 74%

The Intouchables (2012)

"What it provides (instead of the thematically clever dialogue of typically subtle French comedy) is biting wit, poignancy and, forsaking some structural nuisances, the summer's best bromance." ‐Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 3, 2012

Alps (2012)

"The premise is fetching and feels like a mystery, particularly as the film orchestrates its story to make the work of the Alps group seem like a kind of heist." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

1.5/5 18%

Chernobyl Diaries (2012)

"If this horror movie cashes in on the audience that echoes its character's awareness ("That's where the nucular thing happened, right?") then we're about to learn how low our national academic standards are." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

3/5 76%

The Color Wheel (2012)

"The playacting and oddly veiled contempt evoke Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (if rewritten as a comedy about immaturity and starring tweens) while the quick-and-sharp sibling dynamics are like the Duplass Brothers on lemon juice." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

God Bless America (2012)

"You'll laugh and be offended, but if you watch it and don't want to be part of the solution, you'll know which side of the line you're on." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Turn Me On, Dammit! (2012)

"The way Jacobsen tilts the scales between laughing at normality and laughing at perceived abnormality makes this a comedy feel like it's in a universal language." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

I Wish (2012)

"A coming of age story in which the children better the world for the adults, Kore-Eda's heart is in the right place." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

John Carter (2012)

"It's got the schmaltz and grandeur of the 80s Clash of the Titans but little of the warm wonder that made that spectacle such an addiction." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

This Means War (2012)

"But just as the men in this film vacillate between horrible and endearing, you'll find yourself (whether male or female) being lost and won back by the film's charms, chiefly its cast." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Man on a Ledge (2012)

"Here, Leth makes Worthington's ledge a constantly frightening gimmick and the pacing between scenes is so effective, you'd be on the edge of your seat if the film didn't constantly make you feel for the back of your chair." ‐Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 9, 2012

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012)

"Your neighboring 8-year-old will giggle-and isn't that what it's all for?" ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Dish & The Spoon (2012)

"The Dish and Spoon poses the possibility that, from a different proximity, the MPG is a volatile beast and far more than the promise of your fantasies can actually tolerate." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Watching TV with the Red Chinese (2012)

"Less a story loosely bound by cause and effect than a kind of scrapbook of memories, all of which convey the concerns of being super smart and mostly confused in a culturally mixed Manhattan, circa 1980." ‐Boxoffice Magazine
