42 (2013)
For all the hate and hostility it depicts, 42 is a film about decent-hearted people. Hate can be infectious, but so can decency. It's the decency you'll take away from 42.

''The Place Beyond the Pines'' aims admirably for an epic sense of Greek tragedy, and it does have some powerful individual moments, but the characters are all so underdeveloped that the whole effort feels like studied posturing.

Sugar (2008)
To tell you what happens to him from here would be a tremendous disservice. We'll just say that, refreshingly, nothing about it is sickly sweet.

Admission (2013)
What should be a hilarious, long-overdue pairing of two hugely likable, superstar comedians ends up being a major disappointment with "Admission."

The Croods (2013)
"The Croods" is both brisk and beautiful, and should be sufficiently entertaining for family audiences for whom few such options exist these days.

We're all screwed, Korine seems to be saying. It's very sad - but also kinda sexy.

After it's over, poof! You'll forget you ever watched it in the first place.

21 And Over (2013)
While comparisons to ''The Hangover'' are inevitable, ''21 & Over'' is actually reminiscent of a different and specific kind of movie: the early Vince Vaughn-Jon Favreau romp.

''Jack the Giant Slayer'' ends up being smart, thrilling and a whole lot of fun.

2.5/4
A mostly gentle and tastefully photographed depiction of a young boy's coming of age in rural 1940s New Mexico.

A Good Day to Die Hard is pointless and joyless, a barrage of noise and chaos, an onslaught of destruction without the slightest mention of consequence.

''Identity Thief'' strands these two ordinarily enjoyable comics in the middle of nowhere with no help for miles.

Side Effects (2013)
The complexity of emotion, confusion and loss at the film's start gives way to some acrobatic trickery by the end, but "Side Effects" is never less than gripping or entertaining.

2.5/4
There's enough humor and tenderness in Fisher Stevens' film to make it a passably enjoyable experience for the most part.

Parker (2013)
Statham is stepping into a well-known persona. But he's not exactly pushing himself outside his comfort zone; he's on auto-pilot here, despite the obvious physical demands of the part.

Kim keeps things moving briskly and the members of the strong supporting cast don't seem to mind that they're playing flimsy types. Everyone's just here for a mindless good time.

It's all just noise disguised as entertainment.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is sheer poetry on screen: an explosion of joy in the midst of startling squalor and one of the most visceral, original films to come along in a while.

"Promised Land" offers an experience that's alternately amusing and frustrating, full of impassioned earnestness as well as saggy sections.

''Django Unchained'' is Tarantino at his most puerile and least inventive, the premise offering little more than cold, nasty revenge and barrels of squishing, squirting blood.

This is 40 (2012)
It's the feel-bad comedy of the holiday season - and that's what makes it good.

''The Impossible'' is about as subtle as a wall of water.

If you weren't in a failed band yourself, you know people who were, and Chase's story IS their story, if not in the particulars, then in the spirit and the passion. The music may fade, but what's behind it never does.
