Intelligent, adult filmmaking at its finest, People Like Us is that rare bird from a major studio: a movie that matters.

Brave (2012)
Brave unfortunately wastes the studio's most winsome protagonist on their least interesting narrative.

3.5/5
Too bad the film's obscure star will be a hard sell to non-music geeks or anyone born after 1965, because this film's a blast.

Rock of Ages (2012)
You've never seen Cruise like this-stoned, sexy, topless, reckless-and his swing-for-the-fences performance is so on target it's actually Oscar-worthy.

It's a great (if middle-of-the-road) family comedy to seek out.

Polley's mature interest in emotional relationships should bolster the film's arthouse prospects, though an A-list cast isn't likely to help this understated indie make much mainstream summer box office noise.

What it provides (instead of the thematically clever dialogue of typically subtle French comedy) is biting wit, poignancy and, forsaking some structural nuisances, the summer's best bromance.

Prometheus (2012)
Beneath the hype and promises, however, it's almost a letdown that the actual film is merely very good: a better-than-average 3D big-budget space tale.

The premise is fetching and feels like a mystery, particularly as the film orchestrates its story to make the work of the Alps group seem like a kind of heist.

Piranha 3DD (2012)
Piranha 3DD stops at mediocre before arriving at gloriously bad.

If this horror movie cashes in on the audience that echoes its character's awareness ("That's where the nucular thing happened, right?") then we're about to learn how low our national academic standards are.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is a most welcome addition to summer and a great addition to a moneymaking franchise that seems as good as new.

3/5
The playacting and oddly veiled contempt evoke Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (if rewritten as a comedy about immaturity and starring tweens) while the quick-and-sharp sibling dynamics are like the Duplass Brothers on lemon juice.

Lola Versus (2012)
Lola Versus never comes close to generating the sort of laughs or attitude required to fill out such a frail narrative.

Undeniably the work of a director with a very specific and pointed comic style who's not for every taste. Those who succumb to its charms will be transported.

Battleship (2012)
Its endless parade of explosions, battles and general mayhem makes Michael Bay seem like Ingmar Bergman in comparison with Battleship director Peter Berg.

What to expect from What to Expect When You're Expecting: laughs, heart and a terrific ensemble of actors doing what they do best.

You'll laugh and be offended, but if you watch it and don't want to be part of the solution, you'll know which side of the line you're on.

The Dictator (2012)
Fleet, funny, and smart enough to not overstay its welcome, it's a commentary-coated R-rated comedy with supreme box office potential.

Dark Shadows (2012)
It's a great time at the movies and a wickedly clever cinematic treat.

Deadfall (2012)
A crime saga cobbled together from scraps of genre predecessors, Deadfall's unbelievable silliness escalates at every turn.

Free Samples (2013)
A deeply unpleasant micro-budget indie that has no clue how to extrapolate a single location into an entire feature, Free Samples is an ugly bit of work.

The post-proposal blues strike a crushingly bland couple in The Five-Year Engagement, a romantic comedy lacking in both of the genre's signature elements.

Although the script is aimed at the youngest members of the audience, adults will find much to admire in the simply astonishing footage gathered over four years in tracking this amazing species.

Titanic (1997)
Titanic evidences the secret of his longtime success, a talent more impressive even than Cameron's technical prowess: his ability to find stories that tap into greater truths and deeper feelings.
