Autoerotic (2011)
If only (Swanberg) explored his characters as much as his characters explore themselves.

Cowboys & Aliens is a nearly exact description of the conflict at the heart of Jon Favreau's latest film. A better one is Cliché & Exposition.

With a surprisingly mature screenplay by animation writer Dan Fogelman (Tangled, Cars) and top flight direction from Glenn Ficarra and John Requa Crazy, Stupid, Love cuts to the heart of the matters of the heart.

Lucky (2010)
Lucky has its moments, but even with good... performances its vile characters are never likable enough to make you laugh at (or forgive) their wickedness.

Mike Cahill's Another Earth is such a superb and original narrative film debut that people who write about movies think they're doing it a favor by comparing it to other movies and directors they love.

Kunis and Timberlake have the rapid-fire patter of Hepburn and Tracy, if Hepburn and Tracy had conversations about Olympic snowboarder Shaun White's pubic hair.

By default as much as by design, it's the best superhero story you'll see this year. Let's hope it doesn't just set up the story of The Avengers, but sets a standard for its quality.

The Undefeated says less about Sarah Palin than about the political and cultural environment that made her big screen beatification possible.

Ironclad (2011)
Casting is almost uniformly first rate with Cox, Purefoy and the always brilliant Giamatti providing noteworthy standouts.

Larry Crowne (2011)
This charmer about late middle-aged renaissance is pertinent for these times and a perfect summer comedy for grown-ups looking to escape robots and superheroes.

Monte Carlo (2011)
Next to all this totally awesome glitz, it's "be happy with who you are" philosophy is as convincing as Selena Gomez's British English.

True, epic filmmaking, but its enormity actually undermines its cumulative impact: there's only so much mortal danger we can watch our heroes survive before it all becomes too much to swallow.

Pputs a human face on the hot-button topic of immigration in such effective and emotional terms that you may never look at the subject in the same way again.

Bad Teacher (2011)
Filthy and unredeeming in all of the right ways, Bad Teacher is a worthy successor to the benchmark black comedy Bad Santa (without being at all the same).

Drive (2011)
Drive dynamically merges a terrific film noir plot with a cool retro look, evoking '60s classics like Point Blank and Bullitt.

Cars 2 (2011)
Formally, everything's in order-it's an attractive film with some ingenious action sequences-but the problems overwhelm the pleasures, leading to the conclusion that this film's trouble is under the hood.

Conan O'Brien is one of the funniest men to ever host a television program. It was his downfall.

As it unfolds, one dreams of Sidney Lumet's Deathtrap and wonders how David Mamet would have handled these two A-types as they jockey for supremacy in a closed environment.

Whether Rossi's cautious optimism about the future of a legendary but troubled journalistic institution is justifiable is a story yet to be written, but Page One assures us that if the paper goes down, it will go down swinging.

Viva Riva! (2011)
This is just a gangster movie, but it has the edge of a unique time and place, and in a crowded summer movie market any edge will do.
