The Gardener of Eden (2007)
This Is Not a Film (2012)
Tyler Perry's Good Deeds (2012)
The Forgiveness of Blood (2012)
"It's the kind of movie that makes the world feel like a smaller place, suggesting that the similarities connecting us across continents and cultures are more resonant than the things that divide us."
Act of Valor (2012)
"It's Rudd who provides the tenuous through-line that holds together this scattered ramble of a film, by realizing that there's a middle ground between high-rise living and a cooperative farm, and that it's where most people end up."
"It's not as wild or as fun as it may sound (or that it needs to be to hit the midnight-movie sweet spot for which it aims), but it's a minor improvement on the unintentional silliness of the initial installment."
"[It examines] issues of class and race through the lens of its ragtag athletics program while also reinforcing American mythos of bootstrapping, hard work and community. Its triumphs are bittersweet, but they're irresistible."
This Means War (2012)
The Secret World of Arrietty (2012)
"Wispy but sweet as spun sugar, The Secret World of Arrietty feels like a modest but exquisitely trimmed Japanese gift to fans of The Borrowers, British author Mary Norton's classic children's books."
"The Phantom Menace, in any number of dimensions, is an exercise in disappointment, a film filled with enough callbacks to the first trilogy to remind you about what you loved about them without adding much of note in all the new material."
The Vow (2012)
Safe House (2012)
In Darkness (2012)
Chico & Rita (2012)
"Johnson's disarming commitment to the doodle of a character he's playing isn't enough to inject life into the rest of the film, which is an anemic retread of beats and elements from its predecessor..."
The Woman in Black (2012)
Kill List (2012)
Big Miracle (2012)
The Innkeepers (2012)
"More so than in West's previous film, which worked on its own steam right up until the end, The Innkeepers feels like a devoted horror fan's attempt to reinvent a classic genre by sheer force of quality."
One for the Money (2012)
Man on a Ledge (2012)
"At the very least, Leth allows us to bask in the illusion that the movie's farfetched conclusion actually might make sense - until you start taking it apart, piece by piece, and realize that it's all utter ishkabibble."
The Grey (2012)
"Carnahan is smart enough to know what not to show. When those largely unseen wolves start hooting and moaning, the sound goes right through you: It's a howl of existential pain from nature's peanut gallery."
Declaration of War (2012)
Underworld Awakening (2012)
"Murky and perpetually bluish in tinge, Underworld: Awakening does and gets little with the 3-D in which it's being offered, and ends by shamelessly setting up a further and fatally unnecessary installment."
Red Tails (2012)
The Front Line (2012)
The Flowers of War (2011)
"While it's as blunt as any typical big-budget war epic would be, the film finds plenty of moments in which Zhang's skill as a filmmaker and his deft handling and interest in female characters shines..."
Crazy Horse (2012)
The Divide (2012)
Sing Your Song (2012)
Joyful Noise (2012)
Don't Go in the Woods (2012)
"Outside of the proxy satisfaction it will give those who are dying to see the grim reaper let loose on the set of a very special episode of Glee, the pleasures of Don't Go in the Woods can't quite compensate for its straggly bits."
Norwegian Wood (2012)
The Devil Inside (2012)
"The Devil Inside just comes across as lazy and unnecessarily serious given how silly it becomes -- if it had just a touch of lightness, at least it'd feel like we were laughing with it instead of at it."
It's About You (2012)
Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2012)
War Horse (2011)
We Bought a Zoo (2011)
Albert Nobbs (2012)
The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
