The film is gorgeous, dripping with texture and sensuality and, well, mood.

Hope Springs (2012)
It will make you want to go home and have sex with your spouse afterward. Or at least share a longer hug or a more passionate kiss.

Total Recall (2012)
Farrell is confident and competent regardless of the situation; there never seems to be any real threat of him coming out alive.

"Celeste and Jesse Forever" is by no means a parody of romantic comedy cliches, but rather an acknowledgement of them en route to an exploration of greater emotional truths.

Killer Joe (2012)
Like a deep-fried Twinkie at the State Fair of Texas, ''Killer Joe'' is gooey, flavorful and bad for you. Dig in.

Maybe it'll give you something to think about as you Facebook stalk that cute girl you just met for coffee.

Polley (who's been an actress herself) never judges these people she's created. Instead, she depicts the giddy, fleeting and illusory nature of new love, and lets us get caught up in it, too.

The Imposter (2012)
Director Bart Layton takes a story that was already fascinatingly weird to begin with and makes it even more compelling by structuring it as a shadowy film noir.

Magic Mike (2012)
[Tatum is] just mesmerizing: confident, creative, acrobatic and, above all, seductive. `Cause that's the whole point.

Ted (2012)
Much of the material works because the bear has someone to bounce off of; Wahlberg does his best work in situations like this, where he's playing it totally straight in a setting that's totally silly.

1.5/4
What ideally might have been playful and knowing is instead uptight and dreary, with a visual scheme that's so fake and cartoony, it depletes the film of any sense of danger.

Buoyed by individual moments, and by some of the inspired casting that's revealed at each stop along the way.

Brave (2012)
Pixar is long overdue for a feature with a strong female character at its center. Now that she's arrived, it's clear that she deserves better.

The animation is grand, and the lovely images may be enough to send really young kids away happy. Their parents might leave feeling they've been taken in by some carny sleight-of-hand, though.

Prometheus (2012)

Astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking in its brutal imagery, Snow White & the Huntsman is thrilling and frightening in equal measure, yet as bereft of satisfying substance as a poisoned apple.

Cluzet has the daunting task of trying to strike a powerful contrast while acting only from the neck up, and he pulls it off with stoic, bemused grace.

Polisse (2012)
Sure, you've seen this sort of material before -- comparisons to HBO's "The Wire" are frequent and obvious -- but when it's done right, as it is here, it's gripping.
