Rating Title/Year Author
4/10 The Visit (2015) C.J. Prince Madsen's choice to take the alien's perspective falls flat on its face from frame one, a mistake the film never fully recovers from. EDIT

8/10 The Raid: Redemption (2011) C.J. Prince Despite the real lack of substance when it comes to story or character development, there are no complaints when it comes to the action. EDIT

5.8/10 Marianne (2011) C.J. Prince The nightmare sequences were somewhat effective, but they lacked any real impact. The inevitable 'big scare' that came at the climax of the movie felt more like a whimper than a bang. EDIT

7.5/10 Rapt (2009) C.J. Prince Belvaux writes his characters in shades of greys, and his cast is smart enough to play on that moral ambiguity as much as possible. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
7.8/10 Polisse (2011) C.J. Prince When Polisse sticks to its realistic fly-on-the-wall approach to the CPU it's some of the best filmmaking from this year, but its poor attempts to make the film more of a character piece hold it back from being truly great. EDIT

8.1/10 Las acacias (2010) C.J. Prince Even with the formally limited style Las Acacias has a big heart at its center and pays off tremendously if you're patient enough. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
6.7/10 The Road (2011) C.J. Prince If you can get past the shortcomings, The Road is a fun little horror movie that's best seen late at night with a group of friends. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
6.2/10 The Pact (2012) C.J. Prince There is a lot of potential shown in The Pact, but the clunky writing and bombardment of clichés end up overshadowing the better qualities of the film. EDIT

6/10 Michael (2011) C.J. Prince Once you get past the effective style, there isn't much else to look at. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
5.7/10 The Woman in the Fifth (2011) C.J. Prince The Woman in the Fifth could have worked better if everything didn't feel so inert. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
8.4/10 This Is Not a Film (2010) C.J. Prince If we go by the title and don't define this as a film then it's one of the most original and important things to come out this year. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
5/10 Code Blue (2011) C.J. Prince With no real substance behind its images it's understandable why some people would see the film as nothing more than a provocation. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7.1/10 Natural Selection (2011) C.J. Prince Despite its shortcomings, Natural Selection is an enjoyable film. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7/10 Children ... (2011) C.J. Prince Luckily the strength of the film beforehand keeps things afloat. For the majority of the running time Children is a great crime thriller that doesn't miss a beat. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
6.8/10 The Imposter (2012) C.J. Prince On the surface The Imposter is one hell of a story, but it raises more questions than answers. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7.9/10 Whores' Glory (2011) C.J. Prince Glowagger's display of the range of consequences that come with the sex trade make for one of the best documentaries of the year. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7.3/10 The Queen of Versailles (2012) C.J. Prince It's this turn of events that transforms The Queen of Versailles into a surprisingly empathetic look at Jackie Siegel as everything around her begins to crumble. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
4.9/10 Twixt (2011) C.J. Prince The incompetent way that Twixt is shot might have been done intentionally by Coppola to match the pulpy B-movie storyline, but the result is laughable. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
5.3/10 Lovely Molly (2011) C.J. Prince Eduardo Sanchez may have one horror classic with his name on it, but Lovely Molly shows that Blair Witch didn't establish a new name in horror. It was only lightning in a bottle. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7.7/10 Detention (2011) C.J. Prince It may look like a giant mess, but missing out on this would mean depriving yourself of one of the year's most entertaining films. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
7.4/10 Pink Ribbons, Inc. (2011) C.J. Prince Pink Ribbons, Inc. may look uninteresting with its generic documentary format, but the content easily does all of the work. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
6/10 The Tall Man (2012) C.J. Prince The Tall Man's twists and turns make for a fun time, but its attempts at provocation fail miserably. Laugier's ambitions are commendable, but they just don't succeed. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
5/10 Lawless (2012) C.J. Prince The cast, while impressive, does little with what they have. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7/10 The Master (2012) C.J. Prince I would need a rewatch to really settle in on how I feel about The Master, but my initial reaction is that it's good. It's just not the masterpiece that his last film was. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
5/10 No One Lives (2012) C.J. Prince Unfortunately, this is not a triumphant return for Kitamura, as No One Lives is a pretty stupid movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7/10 Amour (2012) C.J. Prince Amour is definitely a good film, but I'm judging this on the scale of Haneke's previous films where it just doesn't stand up. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7.5/10 Tabu (2012) C.J. Prince A romantic film about lost love and classic cinema, Tabu is definitely worth seeking out. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
5/10 The Land of Hope (2012) C.J. Prince Unfortunately, The Land of Hope is a total miss despite its heavy subject matter. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7.5/10 Cloud Atlas (2012) C.J. Prince While Cloud Atlas has its flaws, there are plenty of moments where I found myself seeing the big picture and fully realizing the weight of every storyline linking to one another throughout time. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
6.5/10 Here Comes the Devil (2012) C.J. Prince Here Comes The Devil may be awful a lot of the time, yet I can't deny its power at keeping me invested throughout. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7/10 Berberian Sound Studio (2012) C.J. Prince Berberian Sound Studio is definitely unique with some wonderful moments that nail what Strickland is going for, but it's too uneven to be something truly great. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
9/10 Leviathan (2012) C.J. Prince Everything around me looked foreign, like I was suddenly dropped into the theatre and trying to figure out where I was. It's the kind of reaction I've never had after watching a film, and it left me feeling euphoric afterwards. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7.5/10 The Hunt (2012) C.J. Prince The Hunt may have been too see-through for me to truly enjoy it, but Vinterberg has crafted a very good movie here. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
6.5/10 () C.J. Prince I can't deny that the film's existence is essential with how it brings this tragic story into the spotlight... I just wish that it could have been as interesting to watch as the story surrounding it. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
6/10 Post Tenebras Lux (2012) C.J. Prince I still can't deny that parts of the film resonated with me, and down the road I might come to appreciate it more, but right now I feel mostly indifferent to what I saw. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7/10 Penance (2014) C.J. Prince Penance is definitely a well-made film despite its flaws, but it should probably stay on smaller screens as good TV. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
7.4/10 You Are Here (2010) C.J. Prince A thought-provoking experience, and hopefully just the beginning of Daniel Cockburn's career in filmmaking. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
5.3/10 Red Lights (2012) C.J. Prince Red Lights remains interesting throughout, but by the end it's appealing in the same way a train wreck is. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
6.9/10 Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) C.J. Prince If you can get past the flaws, Safety Not Guaranteed will make for a short but pleasant time. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7/10 Keep the Lights On (2012) C.J. Prince Keep The Lights On is still well-made with a terrific cast supporting one of the year's best performances. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
2.5/10 Grave Encounters 2 (2012) C.J. Prince Waste any more time with these films and you'd be better off in a madhouse. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
8/10 How to Survive a Plague (2012) C.J. Prince How to Survive a Plague will leave people feeling hopeful that it can be done sooner rather than later. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7.1/10 The Bay (2012) C.J. Prince Like Jaws did back in the 70s, The Bay will definitely have people feeling a little hesitant to go into the water any time soon. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7.8/10 The Comedy (2012) C.J. Prince After spending 90 minutes with characters like Swanson and his friends, no one will want to resemble them in any way whatsoever. That alone makes The Comedy a success. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7.4/10 Silver Linings Playbook (2012) C.J. Prince Fans of Russell's earlier films might lament his new career path as him selling out, but doing so doesn't give him enough credit. His work is still subversive, but now it's getting him better results. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
8.2/10 Barbara (2012) C.J. Prince The directorial power of Barbara constantly shines through, helping certify Christian Petzold as one of Germany's best directors working today. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
8.1/10 The Color Wheel (2011) C.J. Prince Alex Ross Perry has defined himself as one of the more exciting new directors with The Color Wheel. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7/10 Django Unchained (2012) C.J. Prince Fans of Tarantino won't come away disappointed, but he can do a lot better than this. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7.9/10 The House I Live In (2012) C.J. Prince The subject matter alone makes this essential viewing if one has the chance to see it. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
Inocente (2012) C.J. Prince What makes Inocente such an interesting subject is her relentless optimism. EDIT
