Tamara Drewe (2010)

Jackass 3 (2010)
More often than not, this third installment in the franchise, directed as always by Jeff Tremaine, doesn't take full advantage of its visual potential.

Conviction (2010)

Hereafter (2010)
Eastwood weaves between these disparate yet intrinsically connected story lines smoothly and without hurry. The pacing may feel a bit too languid, but it allows us to get to know these characters by observing who they are as opposed to what they do.

Red (2010)
This latest adaptation of a hip graphic novel fails to fill in the spaces between the action with anything terribly interesting.

Buried (2010)
Whatever the reasons that draw us to the movies, spending 90 minutes trapped in a box with Ryan Reynolds isn't one of them.

Secretariat (2010)
Anyone remotely familiar with the story of Secretariat knows the outcome before the movie begins, but that Belmont climax still is intoxicating to watch.

You Again (2010)
You Again unfortunately perpetuates all the worst cliches about women being insecure, petty, spiteful, competitive and cruel, and it does it in the name of comedy -- which is a problem, because it's pretty much never funny.

The rare sequel that feels not only relevant but necessary.

This is a very minor entry in the writer-director's prodigious canon, despite the major-league cast.

Easy A (2010)

The Town (2010)
Affleck also has a way with his actors -- unsurprising, having been one himself for so long and not always getting the credit he deserves -- and he's once again attracted some tremendous talent

Catfish (2010)
For all its intensity and mystery, though, there's still a welcome note of uplift at the end. And that's a surprise, too.

Hoffman reveals Jack the sad sack to be an odd, inarticulate Buddha, willing to put in the work it takes for growth.

If we're truly witnessing the unraveling of a talented man in his prime, it's just sad. If it's all performance art, though, it's just pointless.

The American (2010)

The Last Exorcism is one of the scariest movies to come along in a long time -- until the last five minutes or so, when it completely falls apart.

Piranha 3-D (2010)
Mere words cannot describe how awesomely gnarly Piranha 3D is, how hugely entertaining, and how urgently you must get yourself to the theatre to see it. Like, now.

The Switch (2010)

Watching this small-time Melbourne crime family unravel under the weight of their overconfidence is riveting, as Australian writer-director David Michod takes his time methodically detailing their self-destruction.

Alice Creed sucks you in immediately with a beautifully edited opening sequence.

Middle Men (2010)
This inspired-by-a-true-story film about the birth of Internet porn is giddily sleazy, full of convincing crazies and criminals, as well as the scumbags and wannabes who surround them.

Get Low (2010)
For a filmmaker who has worked mostly in contemporary settings in television, film, music videos and commercials, Schneider shows eyes and ears marvelously attuned to the past.

Whereas The Dinner Game from celebrated writer-director Francis Veber was a tight, sharp satire of societal pretension, this remake seems more interested in easy, broad slapstick.

There's repetitious talk about forgiving and forgetting, and debate over which is preferable, but Solondz doesn't seem particularly interested in either.

Offers a chilling look at current nuclear arsenals and the weapons programs of North Korea and Iran.

This all sounds like uptight, grown-up nitpicking, probably. But it's also a reflection of a weakness in storytelling, which is sad given the strength of the source material.

Salt (2010)
It's easy to figure out what Salt is. But who is she? That's a question the film never really seemed interested in answering.

Inception (2010)
One of the year's best films, one that will surely get even better upon repeated viewings.

Predators (2010)
49
Cholodenko and her cast turn what could have been an utterly artificial story into a warm, funny, sharp-tongued and broiling examination of the volatility underlying even the happiest of families.
