Contraband (2012)
What keeps this from being the nifty little actioner it might have been? The writing mostly.

War Horse (2011)
The magic talismans lose their potency. Too much is never enough.

There's nothing wrong with David Fincher's remake. Was it strictly necessary? That's debatable.

From Bale's cartoonish performance to the laughably bad "heavenly" choral music, it wilts early and lies there, dead.

Same Victorian clutter, same overstuffed frames, same Guy Ritchie directorial hyperactivity.

The Artist (2011)
Gimmicky but cute.

Well-constructed, but to little purpose other than the personal.

Tomboy (2011)

Covers much the same ground as other death row movies, but with the Herzog difference.

Shame (2011)
The director has delusions of grandeur and the story squishes when it walks.

Hugo (2011)
The charming if overly gilded story of an unwanted teenage boy rescued by art and friendship.

People grow up sometimes, more or less - even punk rockers.

Melancholia (2011)
Glorious compositions wedded to rigidly controlled visual hysteria. There's simply nothing like it onscreen.

If this weren't such a namby-pamby sitcom with cardboard-cutout characters in the first place, it would be borderline offensive.

Feminism, b-ball, and nuns. Hail Mary, full-court press.

Margin Call (2011)
Benefits hugely from sophisticated plotting and dialogue.

A fantastic night at a carnival of shadowy, suffocating, unforgettable wonders.

Toast (2011)

Finding Joe (2011)
Useful and arguably illuminating documentary introduction to the work of Joseph Campbell.

Blackthorn (2011)

The Thing (2011)
Seeks to piggyback on John Carpenter's 1982 horror pic of the same name, but the remake/prequel doesn't have the wit or the know-how to carry it off.
