The Switch (2010)
2
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)
21
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.

Love Ranch (2010)
A movie with prostitutes, guns, boxing and Reno is crying out for the film noir treatment. Along with neon signs in the desert, give us some terse dialogue and some fatalism.

Grown Ups (2010)
Shockingly inept even by the standards we've come to expect from a Happy Madison production.

I Am Love (2010)
Words like "lush" and "gorgeous" don't even begin to scratch the surface in describing I Am Love, Italian director Luca Guadagnino's retro-styled melodrama.

Knight & Day (2010)
Cruise's presence also helps keep things light, breezy and watchable when the action -- and the story itself -- spin ridiculously out of control.

Cowan and Greenstreet are preaching to the choir.

Cyrus (2010)
Despite their weird interrelations, these mismatched folks do seem like people you might know for real, the players in another of life's random acts of kinkiness that help to keep our curious species fresh and interesting.

Jonah Hex (2010)
So short, and so bad, you cringe at the thought of how awful whatever ended up on the cutting-room floor must be.
Posted Jun 17, 2010

While the individual moments of brutality are powerful, the pacing of the film as a whole tends to lag. The suspense should be suffocating.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

The A-Team (2010)
The pyrotechnics should please the guys in the audience looking for mindless summer fun. And for the women... Cooper has his shirt off early and often. And he's clearly been to the gym.

Winter's Bone is raw, real, understated, fiercely intense and surprisingly gentle and decent amid bursts of ferocity in the rural crime culture where the story's set.

It's just uncomfortable watching kids this age beat each other up to the point of serious injury; there's no one to root for in that.

Get Him to the Greek is a complete blast, a much-needed breath of fresh air - well, as much fresh air as you can get in crowded clubs, packed rock shows and trashed hotel suites.

There's nothing terribly memorable about Prince of Persia; recalling the plot a half-hour afterward might require some effort.

1.5/4
It's self-indulgent, way too long and never as clever or funny as it's intended to be.

This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies -- well, at least the first two.

Robin Hood (2010)
The world probably didn't need another version of this famous tale, even though it arrives with outstanding production values and an impeccable pedigree.

Every turn of Letters to Juliet is obvious and expected, even insufferable.

Just Wright (2010)
You know these two are meant to be together, and the de rigueur obstacles that stand in their way are visible from a mile off.

Babies (2010)
The filmmaker shot nearly all this footage himself, all on a tripod. The stillness of the lengthy moments that result can be mesmerizing.

Harry Brown (2010)
[Caine's] vigilante hell-raising might have seemed more thrilling if only it weren't so overly familiar and predictable.

The performances are what frequently hold the film together when it seems at loose ends, namely from stars Ricardo Darin, Soledad Villamil and Guillermo Francella.
