Warm Bodies (2013)
"...smart, funny, knowing remix of zombie tropes, post-Twilight self-awareness, and youthful yearning for a vague past where, clearly, everything was better. It's a disarming jolt of February awesomeness and the only Valentine's Day movie you need to see. "
Bullet to the Head (2013)
"What's it about? Some bad guys. And some other bad guys. And some badder guys. And bullets to the head, as though through repetition of the title in action we're meant to finally understand the platonic ideal of how to murder a person with a gun. "
"The sometimes maddening action/inaction takes its time and keeps you wondering who's going to come out alive at the end of it all, even though you suspect nobody's walking away from this creepshow happily. "
"It's a nearly perfect apology for the existence of Sheen2013, packaging him as a man out of time, born too late to be the kind of louche, decadent figure he'd easily get away with being 40 years ago. "
Identity Thief (2013)
The Last Exorcism Part II (2013)
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
The ABCs of Death (2013)
"...go straight to F Is for Fart from horror/porn director Noboru Iguchi and enjoy -- if enjoy is the right word to use -- the sight of a Japanese schoolgirl obsessed with her pretty young teacher's gas ("So stinky!" she coos. Seriously.) "
Beautiful Creatures (2013)
"...much weirder, cooler and knowing, more in league with something like The Perks of Being a Wallflower than anything Stephenie Meyer will ever create. It doesn't aim higher; it aims in several competing, uncharted directions. "
Safe Haven (2013)
"...my movie-cry meter is more often pushed into the red by war horses and estranged mixed martial arts brothers battling each other in common resentment of an alcoholic Nick Nolte than it is by revelatory love letters. Your mileage will vary. "
A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)
"If only the people in charge had simply not involved Willis in it, not decided to call it a Die Hard movie, not set up my hopes for something more than gut-level, oomph-ish satisfaction, I wouldn't have felt so empty and disappointed when it was over. "
Escape From Planet Earth (2013)
"During the 95 minutes of undemanding viewing you'll spend with this film on an upcoming Saturday night, you'll easily pretend that the lone "good guy with a gun" is a thing that can actually combat evil... "
"Eldard makes you feel for this broken-down rock and roll creep. That feeling might be that he needs a good slap in the face, but Eldard doesn't want to be loved here and he doesn't flinch in the process. "
Dark Skies (2013)
Norwegian Wood (2012)
Like Someone in Love (2013)
21 And Over (2013)
Side Effects (2013)
"As surprises and weirdnesses and lurid plot points create a landscape of miniature explosions, Soderbergh retains control over the simultaneously bleak, moody, goofy, serious and un-serious momentum. "

This is 40 (2012)
"This squabbling, yelling and pouting goes on for about two hours and ten minutes. Think you can deal with them for that long? More importantly, think you can feel an ounce of pity for their comic pain? "
Robot & Frank (2012)
"It's easy to toss around words like disturbing, eerie, and violence when Hitchcock is involved, but, turns out, the film version of a portion of his life is enjoyable and surprisingly heartwarming. "
Life of Pi (2012)
