Frances Ha (2013)
Has the earnest, wonky charm of a homemade valentine.

For two movies in a row now -- and possibly even more in the second than the first -- [Abrams has] caught some of the spark of the first Star Trek without either mimicking or desecrating the original.

It is, as I suspected, a gargantuan hunk of over-art-directed kitsch, but it makes for a grandiose, colorful, pleasure-drenched night at the movies.

The Iceman (2013)
Shannon inhabits this character so completely that by the end of this hard-to-watch, hard-to-look-away-from movie you feel you can, if not understand Richie, at least wish he had found some redemption in life.

Iron Man 3 (2013)
Unfortunately, [its] sharp-eyed domestic comedy is dwarfed by the far less well-written supervillain crime plot that surrounds it.

Nair is so busy making sure we never lose sympathy for her handsome and charming protagonist that the film ultimately founders in a tangle of humanist platitudes.

Pain & Gain (2013)
I'm still not sure whether to mildly like or mildly hate this movie.

42 (2013)
By burnishing Jackie Robinson's legend to such an unnaturally high polish, 42 does Robinson the man (and the actor who plays him, the relative newcomer Chadwick Boseman) a disservice.

I didn't like the movie at all-found it boring, unintentionally comical, at times even (a word I seldom use) pretentious ...

Packs an impressive amount of personal and political history into a wispy 90 minutes of screen time.

It's a long, limping slog from the halfway point to the finish line, even if the actors have built up enough goodwill by then that it's bearable to coast the movie out.

The complexity of the film's moral world makes the movie far more than a simple anti-religious screed.

A visually over-crammed, emotionally empty mega-spectacle on the model of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

No (2013)
There will have to be a hell of a lot of good movies released in 2013 for No not to make my list of the year's 10 best.

Few fans of the series would disagree that this sclerotic fifth installment should probably be the last.

We're all familiar with the experience of seeing movies that cram ideas and themes down our throats. Les Misérables may represent the first movie to do so while also cramming us down the throats of its actors.

Amour (2012)
A compassionate, rigorously unsentimental masterwork from a director who doesn't normally truck in emotions like the one named in the title.
