A Thousand Words (2012)

"There is a surprising sweetness and sincerity that manifests during the third act, enough to acquit the film of charges of cynicism. Its crimes against comedy, however, are not so easily forgiven." ‐Hollywood.com

Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012)

"The Lorax speaks for the trees; Zac Efron speaks for the vital 12-to-18-year-old demographic." ‐Hollywood.com

Silent House (2012)

"Despite an unfortunate third-act meltdown, it's a notch better than your average home-invasion thriller, thanks largely to the efforts of Olsen." ‐Hollywood.com

Project X (2012)

Gone (2012)

Tyler Perry's Good Deeds (2012)

"Drowning in tedious exposition, much of which is devoted to affirming the obvious." ‐Hollywood.com

This Means War (2012)

"Warrantless wiretapping has never been more hilarious. A stroke of McGenius!" ‐Hollywood.com

The Vow (2012)

"There are unintentional echoes of 'Total Recall' in Rachel McAdams' storyline, which I suppose would make Channing Tatum her Kuato." ‐Hollywood.com

Chronicle (2012)

"When the action slows, Trank's hand grows heavy, pummeling us with scenes of ham-fisted histrionics that undermine the found-footage verisimilitude." ‐Hollywood.com

Big Miracle (2012)

"Ends up feeling like some kind of saccharine paean to the virtues of self-interest, a Hallmark special scripted by Ayn Rand" ‐Hollywood.com

Man on a Ledge (2012)

"Worthington makes for a likable populist protagonist, even if his Australian accent betrays him on copious occasions, and Harris' disturbingly emaciated frame lends an added menace to his plutocrat villain." ‐Hollywood.com

The Grey (2012)

"Director Joe Carnahan's macho metaphysics leave 'The Grey' feeling a bit overcooked." ‐Hollywood.com

Underworld Awakening (2012)

"The carnage occasionally pauses to allow Beckinsale a moment to emote over lost love or seek a fleeting bond with a screen partner, but soon more beasts are on hand, and the soulless slaughter hastily recommences." ‐Hollywood.com

Haywire (2012)

"Having grown accustomed to waif-like "action heroines," it's refreshing to witness an actress who can deliver a knockout blow - and take one - with some credulity." ‐Hollywood.com

Contraband (2012)

"I confess to be unfamiliar with the vagaries of illicit foreign-goods transport, but I have to think it's more exciting than the rote action that unfolds in this movie. " ‐Hollywood.com

The Devil Inside (2012)

"The film devolves into a kind of exorcism-themed Real World episode, replete with "confessionals" in which the characters tearfully air their frustrations. As if we cared. " ‐Hollywood.com

The Muppets (2011)

"The Muppets heralds the return of Jim Henson's beloved furry creations, resurrected from pop-culture irrelevance and lovingly restored to their former greatness in a vibrant comedy-musical." ‐Hollywood.com

Colombiana (2011)

Final Destination 5 (2011)

The Help (2011)

"We are all invited to revel in the shadenfreude, but in between the snickering, it's worth pondering whether the film has perhaps lost its way. Was 'The Help' really intended as a revenge fantasy?" ‐Hollywood.com

Larry Crowne (2011)

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

"Exhilarating and exasperating, awe-inspiring and stupefying, less a movie than a prolonged manic episode. In other words, it's a Michael Bay film." ‐Hollywood.com

Cars 2 (2011)

"Pixar's least-serious film to date: playful, silly, crammed with one-liners and throwaway sight gags. Though it lacks the immense depth of feeling that characterizes the studio's more acclaimed releases, it's by no means hollow." ‐Hollywood.com
