    Columbus knows his way around this kind of material even if some of the special effects look like they came from Deep Discount. The gods are well-rendered, but nothing special. Still for the Potter crowd, Percy provides a nice diversion until the real thing comes along.

    An entertaining fright movie that’s crazy fun and full of genuine scares.

    In a brief supporting role Meg Ryan is also fine along with Brian F. O’Byrne and Will Patton. Shannon Kane is memorable as the prostitute Gere hooks up with.

    For those looking for the rare romantic youth drama without vampyric overtones or other gimmicks, Remember Me should satisfy and it works as a much-needed change of pace for the talented Pattinson who remains one of the most watchable of our young stars.

    Gordon is bit too good looking to really be the Greg Heffley the books detail, but he's not obnoxious in the role and will appeal to the target 'tween set.

    An exciting, fun and sensationally entertaining movie for everyone.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Full of high flying action, nifty monsters, valiant heroes, plotting villains and impressive CGI.

    Yet another movie marketed with the line “From the author of The Notebook,” The Last Song is distinguished from other Nicholas Sparks adaptations because it’s the first screenplay the best-selling novelist has written himself.

    Don McKay just never seems to be able to blend its noir elements into a story that makes us care one way or the other.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Pete Hammond
    Easygoing effort at times feels over-baked and too full of Perry’s now-trademarked melodramatics, but nevertheless should hit squarely at the target audience of the older African-American women that can’t seem to get enough of what this director dishes out.

    A clever movie premise based on an obscure comic book has been turned into, okay we’ll say it, a fanboy’s kick-ass wet dream of a movie that could be a surprise Spring smash.

    Letters to God is far too simplistic and pandering to find success outside of the targeted church-going family moviegoers it’s hoping to reach.
    • 52 Metascore

    Performances are generally first-rate with Hopkins exhibiting an ease and laid-back approach that serves Adam perfectly.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    Offers very little new for those who saw the original.
    • 42 Metascore

    Really a perfect family movie.

    Campanella has laced his story with twists and turns worthy of Hitchcock and the framing device of the novel (which forces the protagonist to sort out the whole thing through writing) is ingenious.

    The Losers not only looks like a low rent, buttoned-down version of The A-Team, but it also resembles a hybrid of other flicks like "Mission: Impossible" and "Inglourious Basterds."

    Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, Oceans is simply amazing at times, a truly remarkable and extraordinary journey under the sea that takes us places we have never been before.

    Although it’s formulaic in the extreme, The Back-up Plan is an easygoing romantic comedy treat for fans of Jennifer Lopez.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    Too introverted and gimmicky for its own good.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    The basic feeling you get out of this version is ‘been there-done that.’

    Odd but endearing, The Good Heart has just exactly that--a good heart--mixed with a simplistic story that comes recommended as a showcase for two fine actors at the top of their game.

    Fans of the first will not be bored. This Iron Man may not be the Godfather II of comic book movie sequels critics hope for but it is a complete blast anyway.

    Mixing old-fashioned content and state of the art effects, this Jerry Bruckheimer production trades ‘pirates' for ‘princes' to revive the swashbuckling, sword fighting spirit of the sort Douglas Fairbanks or Errol Flynn specialized.

    Hilarious and heartfelt from start to finish, this is the best Shrek of them all, and that's no fairy tale.

    The entire cast is superb. Crowe's an ideal Robin Hood-born to play the role-he's fully in command but human to the core. He owns it.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    A fascinating, strangely funny and remarkable film about events so incredible you'll likely have a hard time believing what you see onscreen.

    Channing doesn't bring any new tricks to the table but with her character's tenacious and spirited nature she's fun to have around for a few brief scenes.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    This revved-up movie version offers a perfect mix of non-stop thrills and clever dialogue, mixed with an engagingly light touch. Nobody is taking anything too seriously here, and that's the fun of it.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Stylish, globe hopping, action-packed comedy that starts at full blast and never lets up.
