The Muppets (2011)
It's time to start the music. The Muppets have gotten a brilliant makeover. The holiday season just got a whole lot brighter.

4/5
This new round of toe-tapping musical numbers from the penguin population is shot in eye-poppingly gorgeous 3D and guarantees some very sweet holiday box office returns for Warner Bros.

2/5
If Pacino-on-Sandler action is your trailer's selling point, the movie better be brave enough to have Pacino bend him over. Heck, it's already doing the same to us.

Immortals (2011)
Spectacle and spectacular are often confused for one another in stories of epic adventure, but Immortals is the rare film where they are one and the same.

This isn't high art, but the return of screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg is a good sign

A highly entertaining and heartfelt action comedy that ought to steal more laughs than any other film this holiday season.

In Time (2011)
You won't be looking at your watch, which means it's at least worth the time spent.

While it may not be ground breaking stuff, The Rum Diary should register as a delirious ode to the 99%.

Margin Call (2011)
Margin Call's rigorously modulated tone, while it gives the actors time to breathe, also gives the audience more than enough time to lose interest.

Bound to spawn many sequels, this collaboration with co-producer Peter Jackson will set off massive fireworks at ticket windows around the world.

Happy, Happy (2011)
Happy, Happy is the catharsis for anyone who's had a romance go south.

3/5
The mix of groin injury and over-explanation could totally reach 9-year-olds and a greying Atkinson is still relentlessly lovable.

The Thing (2011)
Much of this is just second-verse-same-as-the-first reiterations of material from the Carpenter version-similar set and creature design, similar shots of snowy wastes and gruesome transformations.

Footloose (2011)
From start to finish, Brewer's remake exudes the look and style of its forebearers: semi-awkward dance choreography, clunky dialogue and an obedience to formula that borders on cliché. But somehow, it works.

Real Steel (2011)
Although the marketing looks like Transformers 4, Real Steel is the real deal, a Rocky with robots that ought to have audiences standing up and cheering.

Dream House (2011)
The real mystery here is how this mess of a movie got such a stellar cast.

1/5
Red State (2011)
Ugly characterizations and simplistic preachiness negate the terror in Red State-a film that eventually proves horrific in ways unintended by writer/director Kevin Smith.

Some audience members will come out for What's Your Number? for Faris' appeal and likability, but they'll leave disappointed because this film is more interested in showing her physical assets than her comedic ones.

if you willfully choose to patronize this sort of movie, much less this one in particular, you deserve what you get. At least, that's what Tom Six seems to think.

Abduction (2011)
Abduction has a lot of problems, but the biggest is the fact that no one gets abducted. Ever.

Killer Elite (2011)
Killer Elite has plenty of killing, but the only thing elite about it is the cast.

The balance of naivete and insularly sweet exchanges are pleasing and comical but the film's painfully derivative.

Hysteria (2012)
Though the film is a fairly plastic British period piece with all the intimacy of a Hitachi Wand, the script captures some delicate and intelligent facets of a tensely conflicted era.

4/5
This four-hour opus about the fury of love and the love of fury is ritually fascinating, often excessive and, with a caution the film wields like a blade, achingly poignant.

Call it Prosthetic Flipper, but the truly inspiring Dolphin Tale is perfect family entertainment (although why it needs to be in 3D is a mystery).

Anonymous (2011)
Why is Emmerich, destroyer of worlds, elbowing his way into the conversation about Shakespearean authorship? Because the debate is explosive -- and he can't resist packing on more dynamite

Restless (2011)
If Harold and Maude hadn't already gotten there 40 years ago, this quirky but engaging trifle might seem refreshingly original.

4/5
The exploitation title may not do it any favors, but this biopic based on the incredible life journey of Sam Childers-a drug-addicted, violent, low life biker redeemed by God and Sudanese orphans-is gripping, inspirational and well told.

Empathy rescues it from the brink of disaster porn -- it's so good-hearted and optimistic that stressed-out moms will feel the flick speaks directly to them, which it does.
