Let Me In (2010)
The Americanized version is a nice parlor trick, and will satisfy those who believe fidelity is the principal virtue of a good adaptation, but what's the point?

Freakonomics (2010)
Like the 2005 bestseller that inspired it, the movie version of Freakonomics is fleet and accessible, an enjoyably light and lively pop artifact aimed at bringing some unusual economic theories to the masses.

Douchebag (2010)
Douchebag feels both rushed and way too slack, but the bigger problem is that the kind of characters and humor this movie traffics in can be found in a more compact, amusing package on the average FX show.

Ip Man (2010)
As an exaggerated, myth-making martial-arts movie, Ip Man is often thrilling.

Buried (2010)
Reynolds is terrific, and Cortés and Sparling overlay a preposterous premise with familiar modern complaints.

Unfortunately, the story rarely rises above cookie-cutter kids'-fantasy tropes: It's a standard hero's-journey story, one that substitutes colorful characters for actual incident.

Catfish (2010)
Catfish is absolutely riveting, and even nerve-wracking as Joost and the Schulmans get progressively closer to learning more about their "friends."

The performances are strong, and Glaudini pulls the story forward largely on the sweet image of an adult gladly taking baby steps into a new world.

If this is a documentary, it's a profoundly embarrassing one, in which Affleck has exposed Phoenix's soul and found it shallow and damaged.

Bran Nue Dae (2010)
Director Rachel Perkins aims for broad comedy in the familiar Australian style -- in the manner of Muriel's Wedding and Strictly Ballroom -- but she often overshoots, and slapstick overwhelms the movie's satire of the infinite varieties of piety.

Hideaway bottles up stormy feelings of grief, guilt, and desire so tightly that register only in a few sharp, impetuous bursts. The rest of the time, it's dull and inscrutable -- a film of almost vaporous subtlety.

It all looks so effortless, it's a wonder that movies like Going The Distance are such an anomaly.

At its best, it's a mesmerizing portrait of a man who mesmerized a lot of people, right up to that bloody display of police power on the Paris streets.
