Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Rings False

Likely to leave fans hesitant and uncertain about the upcoming films, while newbies will wonder why this story is so beloved.

Hide Your Eyes from Hyde Park on Hudson

The casting and the idea to make a movie about FDR are inspired. That's where the inspiration ends for this gross miscalculation.

 
Playing for Keeps Not a Keeper

A would-be romantic comedy that doesn't really make us laugh and is more morose than lighthearted, more clichéd than crackling.

Hitchcock Lacks Little (Except His Famed Visual Style)

Entertaining, but begs the question why a biopic of one of Hollywood's greatest directors was put in the hands of one of its greenest.

 
Cynical Killing Them Softly Critiques Capitalism

We've seen cussing low-life criminals in a hit job gone bad before. This film tacks on a critique of the American economic system, too.

Secular & Somewhat Scary, but Guardians is Great Fun

The 3D animation is outstanding, and the spectacle of rival, familiar, holiday characters out of their usual context is fun to watch.

Life of Pi Full of Wonder, but a Poison Pill

Spectacularly brings to life a popular modern story. But in doing so, distorts, compromises and sells out the greatest story ever told.

Lovable Misfits Make Silver Linings Something Special

It's anything but a typical romantic comedy. Silver Linings Playbook is more like that genre's slightly unhinged cousin.

Anna Karenina is Beautiful Yet Baffling

Rather than a straight reenactment of the grim Russian morality tale, the filmmakers decided to tell the story as if it happened on stage.

Lincoln is One Stunning History Lesson

No stilted caricature, Spielberg humanizes this beloved leader without placing him on too high of a pedestal in the process.

Twilight Saga Concludes with a Twist

What struck me most about the finale - and the series as a whole - was the way it portrayed the lengths someone would go to find love.

Not the Strongest Bond, but Skyfall is Satisfying

James Bond and his 23rd film are exactly alike: each has lost a step, but both still get the job done.

 
Wreck-It Ralph Simultaneously Fresh, Retro

Disney's "love letter to video games" appeals equally to kids, gamers, and grown-ups.

Flight Has Worthwhile Themes, Turbulent Delivery

A 'hard-R' examination of addiction, one where conservative viewers might champion the message, but be too offended to see it through.

Cloud Atlas More Wasteland Than Wonderland

For a story that would reach into our souls, it does its best to keep us at arm's length for nearly three hours.

Chasing Mavericks Rides Waves of Mentorship, Authenticity

Even those not interested in surfing won’t mind spending two hours in the company of these characters because they feel so true to life.

Don't be Tricked, Fun Size is No Treat

If you plan to view this Nickelodeon product with your kids, prepare to come away shell-shocked rather than satisfied.

Alex Cross Easier to Watch Than Expected

In a word, emotional. A roller coaster of feelings: suppressed joy to palpable fear to excruciating pain and overwhelming grief.

Inspiring Argo Could Have Used More Intrigue

An intelligent film about intelligence agents, minus the sanctimony and political score-settling of other recent films.
