The Dilemma (2011)
Torn between establishing itself as a bromantic comedy or a relationship potboiler, the movie meets the requirements of neither. It is unsatisfying in general.

There's simply no center here, no sense that someone is guiding the ship.

3/5
A thoughtful, if sometimes frustrating, tale of a Frenchwoman caught in the middle of a civil war in an unidentified African country.

Carlos (2010)
Carlos deserves mention alongside the greatest suspense thrillers ever made.

Even the most dedicated of Nicolas Cage's fans will find little to enjoy about the historical-fantasy-action romp Season of the Witch.

Rabbit Hole (2010)
It's not exactly full of holiday cheer. Then again, perseverance can inspire and enlighten any time of the year.

2.5/5
Little Fockers packs in all the cynicism and laziness of a tired franchise's third chapter. It's the drive-through version of comfort food, comedy by repetition and indigestion.

True Grit (2010)
If Laura Ingalls Wilder took a detour through Cormac McCarthy country on the way to her Little House, she might stumble upon True Grit, a classic Western tale livened up by a few Coen brothers tweaks.

4.5/5
With its rich source material shaped from real-life events, The King's Speech doesn't need to overplay its hand -- especially not with a king waiting in the hole.

The Fighter (2010)
This is polished entertainment with a little edge, a juicy urban fable for grown-ups.

Tron Legacy (2010)

4/5
Despite some rejiggering of the book's plot, it's a film that should please Narnia fans and, if it does well, may lead to the return of Eustace in the next installment, The Silver Chair. Here's hoping.

The Tourist (2010)
The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze.

4.5/5
It finds the humor in an unlikely love story, and it resists any temptation to play it straight.

It just seems like a bunch of actors playing dress-up.

Black Swan (2010)
It's the kind of nightmare melodrama that rouses the best from director Darren Aronofsky, of a piece with his dark spirals Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler.

Welcome to the Rileys is a reminder that good, or at least intriguing, things can come in what seem to be predictable packages.

Faster (2010)
Johnson's performance is one of seething rage camouflaging emotional scars as ugly as the physical ones, a grim, single-minded figure straight out of a Jim Thompson or Richard Stark novel.

One or two provocative bits emerge from the incoherence.

Boxing Gym (2010)
Don't go to Boxing Gym expecting pugilistic melodrama about long-shot underdogs. There's not an ounce of fat or cliché in Frederick Wiseman's new documentary.

David Yates' fluid, fast-paced direction sends up the crackling tension of a thriller.

127 Hours (2010)
The latest from Danny Boyle is actually an ode to survival, a bracing story of man and nature and an exhilarating sensory experience. It's my favorite movie so far this year.

3/5
A Hollywood movie doesn't need to serve as media criticism. But don't serve yesterday's news, pretend to treat it as vital and then turn it into a mere bauble.

Monsters (2010)
Monsters is far from perfect, but as a calling card for a rising young talent, it's impressive.

Fair Game (2010)
What the filmmakers do capture brilliantly is the human cost of espionage and political gamesmanship.

Inside Job (2010)
Whether it's parsing the definition of a derivative or detailing the bad faith of major financial institutions, the new documentary Inside Job approaches its deconstruction of the financial meltdown with laserlike focus.
