Review: Flight


If Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) could land a doomed plane and save the lives of almost all the passengers while in the midst of a coke- and booze-fueled bender, imagine how well he'd do if he was sober.

Review: The Details


God is not in these details. Jacob Aaron Estes's black comedy gets so dark that it's not even funny.

Review: Tai Chi Zero


Mashup, hodgepodge, or remix — call it what you will, this kung fu odyssey from former action star Stephen Fung offers intermittent pleasures and freaky twists.

Review: Alex Cross


The level of writing in Alex Cross is inferior to that of your fourth-favorite TV cop show.

paranormalactivity_film

Review: Paranormal Activity 4


The scares — and there have been some good ones — in the Paranormal franchise depend on what's not happening.

cloudatlas_film

Review: Cloud Atlas


The most disappointing film of the year, Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer's adaptation of David Mitchell's 2004 novel fails on nearly every level.

John Hawkes on body language


Ask any great actor — Robert De Niro, Christian Bale, Daniel Day-Lewis — if all that physical preparation is necessary for a great performance, and they'll say that sometimes you just have to put your body on the line.

Review: The Sessions

Sexual healing
No other film this year pushes as many Academy buttons as Ben Lewin's adaptation of the true story of the Dorchester-born poet and writer Mark O'Brien, a paralyzed polio survivor who hired a sex surrogate to lose his virginity.

shorttakes_sinister

Review: Sinister


From the producer of the fading Paranormal Activity franchise comes a horror movie that is plainly frightening in a way that so few today are.

Film_SevenPsychopaths

Review: Seven Psychopaths


As in his debut In Bruges , Martin McDonagh here plays self-reflexive games while undermining the gangster genre.

argo_film

Review: Argo

Escapist cinema
There are many heroes in Ben Affleck's spunky, polished political thriller. But the biggest hero is Hollywood itself.

Film: PitchPerfect

Review: Pitch Perfect


Jason Moore's musical doesn't hit all the high notes, but guilty pleasures are seldom perfect.

Frankenweenie-1984_list

Puppy love: Tim Burton's first Frankenweenie


All that is unique and wonderful about the films of Tim Burton can be traced back to "Frankenweenie," a half-hour-long black-and-white live-action short he made while an animator for Disney.

FILM_Looper_SideDirectorRianJohnson_list

Review: Looper


It takes some concentration to follow a plot where flashbacks are flash-forwards and vice versa. Or both. And sometimes flash-sideways.

Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower


"Just smile and be yourself," advises Charlie's naïve dad. "That's how you make friends in the real world."

Review: Stars in Shorts


There are big names galore in this amalgam of short films — Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh, etc. — and the celebs are having a holiday good time, even when the stories aren't particularly distinguished.

house-at-the-end_list

Review: House at the End of the Street


A project that's been around the block, Mark Tonderai's horror thriller was slated to go into production nearly a decade ago, with Jonathan Mostow (Breakdown) attached to direct.

Review: Hotel Transylvania


Genndy Tartakovsky's crummy cartoon would suck under any circumstances, but its inadequacies are particularly glaring when it comes out the week before Tim Burton's macabre gem, Frankenweenie .
