(500) Days of Summer

While adherence to romantic-comedy genre rules and staples lacks the inspiration of its premise, the refreshing spin of (500) Days of Summer is found primarily in first-time director Marc Webb’s style.

 
10,000 B.C.

10,000 B.C. works as sheer spectacle, but its story is forgettable. Its unknown actors make an impression because of their striking looks, but it’s hard to fathom what their future roles might be based on this special-effects driven extravaganza.

 
12 Years a Slave

We’ve seen slavery depicted on film before, but not like this, comparable to the depths Spielberg plunged us to in Schindler’s List.

 
127 Hours

Danny Boyle's 127 Hours takes you through the ringer, sure to elicit audible (and collective) gasps, groans and shrieks before concluding in one cathartic exhale of relief and redemption. It's not the kind of movie to engender multiple viewings, but one is enough to sear it into your mind forever.

 
1408

Should moviegoers check in to 1408? Only if you’re a little low on your claustrophobia, schizophrenia, acrophobia, and especially “blood-o-phobia.” Based on the Stephen King short story of the same name, the horror flick stars John Cusack as a skeptical author of two books on paranormal phenomena.

 
17 Again

With a recycled premise (Freaky Friday, Big, 13 Going on 30) and lukewarm life lessons, 17 Again is really nothing more than a good excuse to capitalize on leading man Zac Efron’s charm and hard work at the gym.

 
2 Fast 2 Furious

Gentlemen, start your engines! Only this time around there's also a lady in the driver's seat. While this thrilling joy ride doesn't try to penetrate the street-racer psychology, it does let the average speed-abiding driver enjoy the excitement of a highway chase.

 
2 Guns

Finally, the funny, fast-paced action movie we've been waiting for all summer has arrived.

 
2012

Sure, the disaster movie format provides countless opportunities to show off the latest CGI trickery, and there are a handful of memorable moments in 2012. But certainly not enough to justify the overly long running time.

21

Winning big isn’t that easy, unless you happen to be a math whiz with a knack for counting cards. Based on the true story of MIT students who actually managed to beat the Vegas system, 21 is a slickly crafted cautionary tale of greed and gambling.

21 Jump Street

What started out as a breakout television hit in the late ‘80s has now been given a surprising cinematic update: raunchy comedy.

 
22 Jump Street

Doesn't take itself too seriously; the actors have a blast, creating lightheartedness. But it just had to sink into the gutter.

 
27 Dresses

While the chick-flick 27 Dresses does weave a cute romantic story with perils designed to surface “issues” needing healing, it is regrettably marred by the needless inclusion of rude language and sex.

 
28 Weeks Later

Director Danny Boyle’s terrifying vision of societal decay and survival of the fittest reinvigorated the horror genre in 2003 with 28 Days Later. Now, its sequel, 28 Weeks Later, introduces a stronger family dynamic than its predecessor.

 
3 Days to Kill

Feels like Kevin Costner channeling Liam Neeson in a funnier iteration of Taken. The movies even share the same writer and producer.

3:10 to Yuma

Even under the careful eye of director James Mangold, the script for 3:10 to Yuma lacks a focused, coherent plot. And without that, even stellar performances from Russell Crowe and Christian Bale can’t make up the difference.

30 Minutes or Less

Clocks in at a lean 83 minutes, but for viewers looking for admirable characters it’s a long sit.

300

Filled with violent battle scenes, gory killings and some surprisingly explicit sex, 300 is a perverse form of eye candy. A war epic that arrives in the midst of the United States' ongoing war against Islamic radicalism, it offers, at best, only faint echoes of the current conflict.

 
300: Rise of an Empire

The bloodshed and lack of character development are laughable, and even the striking visual 'wow factor' of the original has vanished.

 
40 Days and 40 Nights

The entire movie disrespectfully handles themes of abstinence, sex, chastity, friendship, dating/professional relationships and the Catholic faith.
