2.5/4
A fable about parenting and its accompanying joys and sorrows, done in the trademark Walt Disney style of pleasant, feel-good entertainment that doesn't leave much of an emotional trace.

2.5/4
ParaNorman (2012)
Butler and Fell are diehard fans of the horror genre and they have peppered the film with an endless array of subtle homages and gags.

Chuck Norris is also in this movie, although you should know that he gets roughly five minutes of screen time, half of those devoted to his telling of a Chuck Norris joke.

3/4
Dark Horse (2012)
Solondz will never be much for happy endings, but the film is strangely optimistic and at times borders ever-so-slightly on the whimsical.

2/4
Ruby Sparks (2012)
Ruby Sparks opts for a seemingly darker but ultimately easier resolution, one that involves magic and fantasy and the sort of neat, happily-ever-after finales that only exist in movies.

Hope Springs (2012)
Like a Hannah Montana movie, Hope Springs argues there are no romantic ills that a walk on the beach and a few pop songs on the soundtrack can't cure.

2/4
The last half-hour of the film is one enormous action sequence in Manila that must have been exceptionally difficult to shoot and even harder to edit together. It's also hard to sit through.

1/4
Red Lights (2012)
With the sort of last-minute plot twist that sank M. Night Shyamalan's career, Red Lights comes to an unexpected, risible end.

3.5/4
By the end, the movie has pulled off a small miracle: You become absorbed in the lives of these people for who they are and not what they own.

The Watch (2012)

1/4
The movie looks like it was lit by lava lamps, scored on Moog synthesizers, written between bong hits and acted underwater. None of this is meant as praise.

A study of a man who pulled away from the edge of the abyss at the nick of time, only to realize he may not be able to forgive himself for the things he's done.

A beautiful, strange tone poem about childhood and innocence.

Saddled with the impossible expectations surrounding the final chapter in his trilogy of Batman movies, Nolan surprises by one-upping you. He gives you more than you expected.

To Rome with Love desperately needs a script polish, as well as an entire third act.

Savages (2012)
The superb craftsmanship and care behind Savages only helps to underscore what an asinine, unconvincing picture this is.

Do we really need another Spider-Man movie? As long as it's this much fun - yes, yes, we do.

Ted (2012)
This is exactly the same plot as The Muppets, in which Jason Segel was forced to choose between Amy Adams and Kermit the Frog.

Safety Not Guaranteed is droll and hilarious, but there isn't a cheap laugh in it, and the ending is so perfect it sends you soaring.

As Seeking a Friend for the End of the World crawls toward its sentimental finale, you're rooting for that asteroid to get here, quick.

Hysteria (2012)
Hysteria never gets too preachy or ponderous, and there's something in the film to educate even the most learned viewer.

Prometheus (2012)
Why are we here? What is our purpose? Is there a God? When does this movie get good?

Headhunters (2012)
By film's end, we're deep into Coen brothers territory, with an extra splash of Sam Raimi-level gore.

When Snow rides into battle wielding a sword, you want to tell her to put that thing down before she pokes her eye out.

There is a huge difference between an unexpectedly sudden ending (like The Sopranos) and a non-ending.

Men in Black 3 is so dull and empty, it's the first movie that has ever made me think "Thank God this is in 3D."

For a genre dominated by American movies in which girls are usually prizes or objects of lust, Turn Me On, Dammit! practically feels revolutionary.

Bernie (2012)
The question of why the law must always be upheld, regardless of consequences, gives this light, amiable movie a surprising heft and weight.

Shot in 1943 during World War II, Children of Paradise overcame so many seemingly impossible obstacles that today the film seems enchanted.
