7.5/10
You might want to catch We Are What We Are before its inevitable, much-too-glossy remake brightens the walls of American multiplexes.

Hall Pass (2011)
The pleasantly crude Hall Pass reminds us of what's been missing from movies: Those squirm-inducing moments in comedy that produce enough discomfort that at points what we're watching is half a heartbeat away from a horror film.

Unknown (2011)
The notion of combining Taken and Roman Polanski's Frantic makes for a clean graft here.

Carancho (2011)

5/10
It's got a great subject -- the extraordinarily voluble comedian Jonathan Winters, whose constant rush of words can be like a blizzard: beautiful, maddening, exhausting and finally beautiful again. But it's not a great film.

The Eagle (2011)
Nearly everything in The Eagle feels like text carved into a tablet, and the stolid Tatum's lack of an inner life reinforces that miscalculation.

Cedar Rapids (2011)
It's a movie that needs to look down its nose for its laughs, which generally isn't the best place to find them.

It's cute, all right. But even as Shakespearean tragedies aimed at kids go, Gnomeo & Juliet is a slender conceit that stretches itself way too thin.

5/10
The on-the-nose, audience tested feel of the film's current title also sums up the way the movie plays; what nuance it had went out the window with the original name.

Kaboom (2011)
Gregg Araki's Kaboom may be the most cheerful movie ever made about the impending apocalypse.

If your idea of a great Valentine's Day is to ring up your secret beloved and breathe heavily into the phone, this is the movie for you.

The Rite (2011)
If The Rite isn't exactly good, it's also surprisingly not-terrible.

The Way Back (2011)
Weir's artisan's sureness grants a bewitching calm -- his trademark ambience -- to this harrowing tale.

Man has the confidence of knowing exactly where it wants to go, and when it wants to arrive; however, you may be just as familiar with the territory as the driver.

The Dilemma (2011)
The failure to establish which world these characters live in becomes more problematic as the film goes on.

Every Day (2011)
Hunt and Dennehy rise to it, investing their exchanges - which at their best are unexceptional and yet exquisitely painful - with lifetimes of regret and ambivalence.

While this latest Rogen-penned iteration is a game try, it feels a bit like he's trying to make a volume out of a footnote.

In the battle between claustrophobic, showily indie filmmaking and the raw openness of the lead actors, the latter wins by a long shot. The faces of these performers -- particularly Williams' -- are the key to Blue Valentine.

Biutiful (2010)
Bardem is the only reason that Biutiful is impossible to fully turn away from -- he's the beacon who lights the way in this otherwise overmanipulative, overreaching mess of a film.

Lilliputian light and unconcerned about it, Gulliver's Travels clears enough antic elbow room for its liberal adaptation of Jonathan Swift's classic novel to do its thing without too much offense and then pretty much disappears.

Even so, The Illusionist shifts gears too abruptly into an aggressively dour ending. It's as if the movie's grudgingly fanciful quality must come with a punishment.

I'm not saying the legacy of Meet the Parents deserved the protection of cinematic landmark status. But it does seem like a shame that what was there to protect has been ground into an unrecognizable pulp and reshaped into a grotesque of its former self.

Tron Legacy (2010)
Even the name seems crass, as if some Disney marketing exec figured that all the studio had to do was slap "Legacy" at the end of the old title and the thing would be good to go.

There are a couple of scenes of pure, sentimental genius, as well as appealingly boggled turns by Rudd and Wilson.

The Tourist (2010)
It's the kind of espionage caper that doesn't get made anymore, a visually sensuous picture made with tender attention to detail and an elegant, understated sense of humor.

5.5/10
Frankie's struggle strays close to camp during her first transition; by the climax, which finds her cycling through personalities so quickly one fears for an emotive sprain, the story is secondary to the spectacle of Berry writhing with Oscar fever.

[The film] plays possum with its themes of Christian good vs. ungodly evil, so that its loosey-goosey conceit is not driving the film -- a sleek effects vehicle, to be sure -- but getting taken for a ride

The Fighter (2010)
Whenever it should bounce backward, it lunges forward; it jabs instead of feints, and stomps down hard when it needs to dance.
