Dear John (2010)
With about half an hour left, Dear John took a shark-jumping turn that ruined the entire film for me.

Tooth Fairy could have been completely forgettable had it not been for the comic timing of [Stephen] Merchant.

Fish Tank (2010)
Katie Jarvis is achingly good. Fish Tank is unremittingly bleak, but somehow, allows room for hope.

Despite its leaps in logic, The Book of Eli isn't all bad. Watching Denzel Washington deliver yet another outstanding performance is greatly entertaining.

Leap Year (2010)
Let's think positively about this. We've gotten the first disappointing romantic comedy of the year out of the way, and we're only one week into 2010.

As the precocious and nubile Sheeni Saunders, newcomer Portia Doubleday is the first major discovery of 2010.

It's Complicated is as middle-of-the-road as you can get. It doesn't even attempt to break new ground.

This new take on the classic story proves to be a snappy, fast-paced, albeit confusing, action comedy that's smarter than the average fare.

Ricky (2009)
Ozon's Ricky contains moments of real grit, but also contains a dose of otherworldly magic that only movies can provide.

Nine (2009)
A musical lacking enthusiasm, lacking any memorable songs, and just overall lacking any semblance of an entertaining story.

Avatar (2009)
You have to see Avatar to believe it, and even then it's nearly impossible to register all of what's on screen.

Those who haven't read the book may actually get more enjoyment out of the feature film adaptation than those who have read Sebold's novel

Great cast, smart writing, and a timely but touchy storyline make Up in the Air a film you won't forget about the moment you leave the theater.

To paraphrase a quote from an ex-NFL coach, The Blind Side is what we thought it would be, but it's also a whole lot more.

If this is the best the franchise can do creating wolves, I'm not looking forward to what they do with a certain character central to the final Twilight story, Breaking Dawn.

Pirate Radio captures that rebellious, sexy, chaotic era by letting the generation-defining tunes do all the work.

2012 (2009)
I don't think that, other than Zombieland and The Hangover, I've laughed this hard all year, although I'm sure the comedy in 2012 is 90% unintentional.

For the most part, Zemeckis delivers a faithful interpretation of Dickens' work in this PG-rated holiday tale. What he misses out on capturing is the spirit of Dickens' story.

Many, many movies have been made about World War II; but Albou's film provides a fresh perspective. It also doesn't hurt that her two lead actresses are terrifically beautiful.

Amelia (2009)
Instead of soaring alongside Amelia, we're left grounded by a script that spends too much time on her love life and not enough time on what made her an extraordinary woman.

It's not the be-all, end-all of horror movies. But for what Oren Peli was able to accomplish with an $11,000 budget, Paranormal Activity should definitely be applauded.
