I'm So Excited! (2013)

""I'm so Excited" shows Pedro Almodovar at his frothiest: shaking sex and death into a humorous cocktail aboard a plane in peril." Yahoo! Movies
Posted Nov 1, 2013

The Way Way Back (2013)

"If you're first act was writing the Oscar winning screenplay for "The Descendants," looking for an encore can be tough. But Nat Faxon and Jim Rash leveraged that win and made the leap to directing their own small-budget, bighearted coming of age comedy." Yahoo! Movies

The Hunt (2013)

"Vinterberg uses a sharp cinematic knife to cut to the core of the matter: that the human heart can never be entirely civilized and, ultimately, each man is alone with his fate." Yahoo! Movies

Only God Forgives (2013)

"Those who are less judgmental, or less enamored of the sentimentality of "Drive" -- and "Bronson" die-hards -- will know to lower their expectations and see what strange, stylized crime drama the Danish director is serving up this time." Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

Short Term 12 (2013)

"The film succeeds by its simple storytelling technique - no explosions, no sweeping music signaling emotional peaks, no big reveals. It's just unsuperhumans...hoping to scratch out some joy and ward off the shadow of loneliness." Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013)

"Like a bastard love child of Terrence Malick and Robert Altman, David Lowery's crime drama shuffles to its own drummer. " Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

Lovelace (2013)

"Co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman corralled a stellar cast that piles on great performances." Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

Cockneys vs Zombies (2013)

"Maybe it's me, but after all the bloated, clanging, FX-driven summer tent poles, I'm partial to a gentle genre horror comedy that has gooey guts - but doesn't throw the heart out with the steaming entrails." Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

Blackfish (2013)

"Gabriela Cowperthwaite's eye-opening, edge-of-your-seat feature "Blackfish" has it all: an oversized villain, chilling attack footage, corporate malfeasance, and girls in bikinis. " Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 31, 2013

All Is Lost (2013)

"As a solo sailor on a hostile sea, Robert Redford doesn't so much play to the camera, as tolerate it, showing that, even at 77, he's so much more than a pretty face, a buttery voice and an athletic physique. " Yahoo! Movies
Posted Oct 30, 2013

The East (2013)

"What makes The East a necessary destination is that it explores the personal why's behind these homegrown terrorists, and discovers each individual's mixed motives for taking the law into their own hands." Yahoo! Movies

The King's Speech (2010)

"A charming, personal period drama." ‐Us Weekly

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

"Though the adventure gushes with blood (there's an amateur C-section on the battlefield), it's also packed with thrills and sexy romance." ‐Us Weekly

Cars 2 (2011)

"Only the youngest audience members will be amused (if a bit squirmy); older kids and parents will find their patience tested. At least Pixar's peerless animation remains a treat." ‐Us Weekly

The Art of Getting By (2011)

"While Roberts glows, she deserves more than this flimsy, underwritten part. The humdrum romance flunks out." ‐Us Weekly

Green Lantern (2011)

"Green Lantern fails to shine." ‐Us Weekly

Super 8 (2011)

"A strong Kyle Chandler enforces order as Joe's lawman dad, while Elle Fanning catapults from child star to romantic heroine as a troubled teen." ‐Us Weekly

Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer (2011)

"[This] high-pitched, candy-colored comedy tries too hard to be fun." ‐Us Weekly

Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)

"With fluid action sequences and luminous 3-D visuals, the film will tickle kids and engage their parents." ‐Us Weekly

Everything Must Go (2011)

"Though the actor is famous for his outrageous roles, he delves deep into this troubled character and nails the quieter moments." ‐Us Weekly

Prom (2011)

"It can't decide if it's a snarky look at the rite of passage or an earnest story about being true to oneself." ‐Us Weekly

2.5/4 72%

Rio (2011)

"Vibrant and as zippy as a kindergartner on a sugar rush, this 3-D animated flick will certainly please kids, even if adults may find it a little snoozy." ‐Us Weekly

Scream 4 (2011)

"The entertaining Scream formula still works: When there's a big shiny knife, the action never gets dull." ‐Us Weekly

Soul Surfer (2011)

"The sincere message -- perseverance is essential when faced with life's setbacks -- is a good one, but the movie is a bit of a chore to watch." ‐Us Weekly

Source Code (2011)

"Give credit to the dashing and romantic Gyllenhaal for keeping this effort (mostly) on track." ‐Us Weekly

Mars Needs Moms (2011)

"Green makes a whiny hero, and Dan Fogler (as his buddy on Mars) fails to amuse. Plus, why is Milo's stay-at-home mom a saint and the working alien moms evil?" ‐Us Weekly

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

"The actors' romantic scenes excel. Just sitting side by side on a bus, their sexual connection crackles." ‐Us Weekly

Rango (2011)

"While Depp turns his bug-eyed reptile into a charismatic character, the plot gets lost in a maze of tangents and the story has too many tasteless jokes -- like a prostate gag -- that are not kid-friendly." ‐Us Weekly

Hall Pass (2011)

"[A] far-fetched, mostly unfunny comedy." ‐Us Weekly

Unknown (2011)

"This twist-filled tale of an amnesiac falling into a web of international intrigue moves swiftly but makes little sense -- and has ludicrous moments." ‐Us Weekly

Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)

The Green Hornet (2011)

"The interplay between the Green Hornet and straight man Kato delights, overshadowing Cameron Diaz as a mutual love interest." ‐Us Weekly

Little Fockers (2010)

"If you do see the flick, stay for the closing credits, when Stiller offers a loose stand-up routine. Now that could have been a movie!" ‐Us Weekly

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010)

"It's easy to get lost in the rich, two-and-a-half hour installment, but it wraps up too abruptly." ‐Us Weekly

Morning Glory (2010)

"It plods along." ‐Us Weekly
Posted Nov 10, 2010

For Colored Girls (2010)

"This grave update of a 1975 play, which interweaves nine stories, wastes talents such as Janet Jackson and Thandie Newton." ‐Us Weekly

3/4 73%

Megamind (2010)

"Superb 3-D graphics and silly running gags (Megamind routinely mispronounces words such as school) should keep kids amused, while sly political and pop culture references will get laughs from adults." ‐Us Weekly

The Social Network (2010)

"The movie zips along at a quick pace, with caffeinated dialogue. Still, things get dull in the third act during the inevitable crash." ‐Us Weekly

Ramona and Beezus (2010)

"The sweet sisterhood story based on the Beverly Cleary books doesn't talk down to kids and presents parents as appealing and vulnerable. " ‐Us Weekly

Salt (2010)

"Angelina Jolie is one deadly weapon in this breathless political thriller" ‐Us Weekly

Knight & Day (2010)

"Directed at a breakneck pace and with a spry script, it ratchets up the stakes as its stars leap from stunt to outrageous stunt. After a few years without a hit, Cruise seems back in control." ‐Us Weekly

4/4 93%

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

"Directing from the tart, laugh-out-loud script she cowrote, Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon) has crafted an honest, generous portrait of the challenges of American family life -- gay or straight." ‐Us Weekly
Posted Jul 15, 2010

Despicable Me (2010)

"This dark family comedy with its steal-the-moon premise is hilariously over-the-top, yet understandable from a child's perspective." ‐Us Weekly

The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)

"I get a charge out of Cage's serious self-mockery, here as a wizard who'd never make the grade at Hogwarts in a fantasy that doesn't aim high but hits the mark for summer entertainment." ‐Us Weekly
Posted Jul 15, 2010
3.5/4 86%

Inception (2010)

"In this smart sci-fi puzzle box, director Christopher Nolan transports the audience to a dreamscape that begins with the familiar and then takes a radical, imaginative leap. " ‐Us Weekly

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

"Eclipse's balance of PG-13 romance and bone-crunching action will satisfy Twi-Hards and appeal to supernatural romantics who haven't completely converted to TV's True Blood." ‐Us Weekly
