The only positive thing about the aimless film The Yellow Handkerchief is the idea that William Hurt may be ready for his Jeff Bridges moment.

Although purists will always prefer the original picture, this remake really does justify its existence. How often can you say that?

In case you wondered: Little girls still scream for Miley Cyrus. You too may experience the need to scream, albeit for different reasons, should you take one (or more) of them to see The Last Song...

Literature lasts, but sometimes, The Last Station suggests, the ties that bind last, too.

Although it is structured like a thriller...The Secret in Their Eyes is really a cautionary tale about the consequences of a life of too much apprehension and propriety.

Yes, it's every bit as brainless as the trailers suggest.

3/4
An exercise in experiential cinema, as well as a blistering critique of a society that drives its poorest to unimaginable acts for mere survival.

One of the many feats director Thornton pulls off in this beautifully observed, thoughtful picture is that the leads spend the entire movie without uttering a word to each other. Sometimes, words are just redundant.

Alice in Wonderland isn't quite the natural fit of director and material that it seemed to be on paper, but most of Burton's recent movies have been far more disappointing.

By turning Brooklyn's Finest into a morality tale, Fuqua lets the movie slip right through his undeniably talented fingers.

There's a deliberate quality to the storytelling that makes the movie drag in many scenes; and yet, numerous characters flit by that we don't have time to really meet.

Happy Tears (2010)
On its way to a climax that ends every plot strand on an unrealistically upbeat and pat note, Happy Tears loses sight of what made the film so engrossing in the first place.

Crazy Heart (2009)
Cooper lets you experience Blake's gradual reawakening right along with him, and Bridges' superb performance -- not the slight plot -- carries the weight.

How did this canny, savvy performer get roped into such a dud for his big acting comeback?

Even if this feeble film weren't based on a book with a gigantic plot-spoiler title, it would still feel like something you endure more than watch.

You'd expect The Book of Eli to offer something special enough to have lured the brothers from retirement, but the Hugheses settle for serving up all the usual clichés...

3/4
Nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards in 2008, the movie takes a completely apolitical look at the lives of its three main characters, focusing not on their differences but on how, in a way, they are trapped by their cultures.

With the insight and sensitivity of an insider, The Messenger illuminates the sometimes invisible victims of war -- the survivors -- and a pain that is tolerated but never quite healed.

A movie that has been tinkered and fussed with until there is no spontaneity left -- no warmth or life or messiness.

Parnassus is a step up from Gilliam's two previous pictures (the ineffectual The Brothers Grimm and the torturous Tideland), but it still feels like a cobbled collection of ideas and conceits rather than a stand-alone story.

A Single Man (2009)
Despite its downbeat theme, A Single Man is ultimately optimistic about the human capability to gradually make peace with seemingly insurmountable pain and tragedy.

Nine (2009)
Like he did in Chicago, Marshall films and edits the hell out of the musical numbers, but Nike TV commercials look pretty cool, too.

Not even Sherlock Holmes could make much sense out of the overplotted, murky mess that is Sherlock Holmes, although Arthur Conan Doyle's legendarily brainy detective would probably never buy a ticket to a movie as elephant-footed as this one...

Avatar (2009)
The genre elements are all there: What critically wounds Avatar is Cameron's inability to write better characters.

Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker are supposed to pass for a married couple, but they have all the chemistry of two actors who just met and shook hands moments before the cameras rolled.
