1/4
The Big Wedding is a would-be screwball comedy that forgets to throw in the screws.

Mud (2013)
You come away from Mud fondly remembering those two boys, especially Ellis, who has taken his first steps toward adulthood and discovers it suits him just fine.

Pain & Gain (2013)
This is easily Bay's best movie, the work of a filmmaker with a cracked sense of humor that he is able to share with the audience.

Oblivion (2013)
The filmmakers don't even have the courage to see the story to its proper end, opting for a ridiculous finale that feels vaguely insulting.

2/4
Trance (2013)
The plot of Trance is purposely convoluted - you're supposed to get more and more confused as the story unfolds, not always sure if what you're watching is a dream.

The Place Beyond the Pines is hackneyed and dull: Not a single moment rings true.

3/4
Blancanieves (2013)
Blancanieves, which won 10 Goyas (Spain's equivalent of the Oscars) and was a smash hit in its native Spain, has traces of a kinky undertone and an uncommon willingness to embrace the darkness inherent in this fairy tale.

Room 237 (2013)
You don't have to buy any of the nutty theories in Room 237 to appreciate what director Rodney Ascher has accomplished.

Evil Dead (2013)
The Evil Dead was an absolute blast. Evil Dead is just a well-made gross-out, and it's kind of a bummer.

Creepy and cockeyed, unholy and unnerving, Top Of The Lake is riveting stuff.

2.5/4
Despite its astronomical body count, John Dies at the End never takes itself too seriously, and neither should you.

The World has plenty of dissenting interviews with journalists and lefty policy wonks who say that the measures Cheney employed were neither necessary nor productive. Cheney shrugs off their arguments.

An oppressive, bloated bore, the latest argument that CGI kills the imaginations of talented filmmakers.

After Lucia (2012)
After Lucia builds to an almost unbearable level of tension, and although you may think you know how the story turns out, Franco has a different idea

Yossi (2013)
It's a slight but uplifting charmer that serves as a feel-good bookend to the sadder first film.

This is the first Die Hard movie to run well under two hours (the incomprehensible final 30 minutes have been so furiously chopped, they deserve their own show on the Food Network).

Identity Thief apparently forgets it was supposed to be a comedy.

Side Effects (2013)
The main thing to keep in mind while watching Steven Soderbergh's playful new thriller is not to take the movie too seriously or else you'll feel betrayed by the end.

If it doesn't exactly break new ground, Bullet to the Head reminds you of the pleasures of a genre that today is exploited primarily for comedy or satire.

Amour (2012)
Shot in long, static takes, Amour stares directly into the indignities of old age and the curse of a slow death.

Even more than The Hurt Locker, which sometimes relied on traditional film techniques to build suspense, Zero Dark Thirty resists manipulating the viewer or building movie-movie excitement.

Django Unchained is the most brutal film Quentin Tarantino has ever made.But the movie is also exciting and ironic and, at times, explosively funny: Even at his most serious, Tarantino can't help but entertain and show you a good time.
