"Jurassic Park" is such an impressive technical achievement that it seems churlish to note that it accomplishes this at the expense of more substantive elements.

A movie with enough melody and camaraderie to cover up its lack of originality.

Evil Dead (2013)
It's never truly scary, but it is spectacularly disgusting, so if that turns you on, prepare to be thrilled beyond measure.

On the Road (2012)
If the movie weren't so visually eloquent at evoking post-war America, it might prove unbearable.

The Host (2013)
It offers viewers the choice of Team Hokey or Team Absurd.

Admission (2013)
'Admission' probably began with a clear artistic vision but was compromised along the way. The messy result offers glimpses of greatness dragged down by scenes that are bafflingly tone-deaf.

Stoker (2013)
A beguiling debacle that in its best case scenario might achieve cult status ... or could just as easily fade into obscurity.

The Croods (2013)
The kooky Cage, representing the voice of authority for a change, creates a marvelous character. He's part Mr. Incredible, part Homer Simpson; he's a great warrior limited by his own inflexibility.

In a film about people who perform death-defying stunts, the last thing you want to inspire is a yawn.

A long but enjoyable family adventure that is as noisy as it is clever.

Snitch (2013)
An engrossing balance of drama and thriller, "Snitch" introduces a minefield of compromised morality, where every action taken or not taken could lead to a worse predicament for its hero.

Safe Haven (2013)
The film offers an already weird hybrid of love story and police procedural. But the closing creates head-scratching moments that even the cast doesn't quite know how to handle.

Amour (2012)
In many ways, it's a horror film, as the woman descends into helplessness, and - like the audience - the man can only watch. It's a potent piece of filmmaking.

'Identity Thief' is not a great movie. But it is a great vehicle for two terrific actors who drape themselves in material perfectly tailored to them.

'Bullet to the Head' may be trashy, but it's never dull.

Mama (2013)
Can we declare a moratorium on stringy-haired ghost women who make freaky noises?

Most R-rated comedies involve meaningless sex. "The Sessions" is the rare one about meaningful sex.

Sinister (2012)
Central to the cinematic impotency on display in "Sinister" is the ludicrous behavior of its hero.
