Les MisÚrables (2012)
"Fosse wept. "
Django Unchained (2012)
"Insulting lip service to 2001 notwithstanding, Prometheus shocks and awes with more than sufficient technical bravura. If only it was as smart as it clearly thinks it is."
The Possession (2012)
"While frustratingly vague in terms of character and motivation, The Possession is among the more competent of recent studio horror efforts. If only that wasn't the best thing I could say about it."
"Lean, fun, smart without overthinking things and always equipped with a one-liner, Lockout is refreshingly free of the bull**** that plagues so many genre films."
Killer Joe (2012)
"The humor magnifies the horror, and vice versa. Like the inflammatory Dr. Strangelove, we've sewn these seeds, and we deserve whatever is reaped from them."
Beyond The Black Rainbow (2012)
"If 2001: A Space Odyssey had an evil twin masquerading as a horror film, this would be it. Beyond the Black Rainbow culls from untold volumes of film history even as it delivers its own uniquely brilliant freak-outs."
The Expendables 2 (2012)
"Enjoyable, but disappointingly tame compared to its ferocious predecessor. The Expendables 2 is disposable."
Total Recall (2012)
"While far from terrible, this retread forgoes any qualities to justify its existence in the first place. It will be justly forgotten before long."
"Essentially stupid, but stylistically invigorating, like watching a genius muck about with finger paints like a child on a sugar high. And then it throws it back in your face."
Take This Waltz (2012)
"Polley's sophomore feature fumbles between reality and fantasy, often insightful but frequently ungrounded. Dig that carnival ride, though."
This Is Not a Film (2012)
"The truth of what is and isn't lies deep between the lines of this brilliantly elusive meta-commentary, arguably the greatest Iranian film since Abbas Kiarostami's masterpiece Close-Up."
"I laughed, and frequently. There are also images I can now never forget, and kind of want to. Is this what it was like for all those people I introduced, kicking and screaming, to Aqua Teen Hunger Force?"
Your Sister's Sister (2012)
"What could have been trite male wish-fulfillment is instead beholden to genuinely messy revelations: life as a tattered, living quilt we sew and wear as one."
