The appeal goes well beyond a "will they or won't they" formula, showing how our instincts to prevent a wounded heart can hurt others.

Carrie Could Make You See Red

This remake lacks nuance, is spiritually arid and, for most of its running time, visually dull, no matter how much blood is spilled.

Vin Diesel's Riddick Not Fast, Not Furious, and Not Much Fun

When a movie titled after a character's name is more interesting when that character isn't on screen, that's a problem.

Faith and Perseverance Frame Linsanity

What really sets Linsanity apart from other documentaries is the presence of faith basketball star Jeremy Lin gives to his interviews.

Unoriginal Closed Circuit a Decent Alternative

Intelligent, but not smart enough; appealing, but nothing really stands out. It's more Masterpiece Theater than major studio release.

Do Not See Don Jon (But if You Do, You May Never Look at Porn Again)

The Lone Ranger is a Wild, Wild Mess

The last half-hour is exactly what we want a summer movie to be, but we have to sit through two hours of utter tedium to get there.

Elysium Works if One Can Set Aside its Soapbox

Despite the socialistic sermonizing, this brainy thrill-ride is smartly constructed in a manner reminiscent of Christopher Nolan.

Prisoners is a story of human pain and loss, and of how we respond to the temptation to carry out our own ideas of justice.

So poorly executed that it's safe to say all comparisons between Percy Jackson and Harry Potter will come to a screeching halt.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints is Beautiful but Exhausting

A truly beautiful film about an outlaw, but one can’t shake the feeling that it's the exhaustive visual equivalent of a sad country song.
