    Like "The Blind Side," this is an inspiring and compelling true story. Harrison Ford is at the top of his game in this remarkable film.

    • 70 Pete Hammond
    With a razor-sharp script and Jennifer Garner winning laughs in a nice change-of-pace role, this cynically funny and pointedly pertinent not-so-subtle spin on the national battle between right and left wing politics scores lots of comic bullseyes.

    Reiner has crafted the perfect summer film in The Magic Of Belle Isle. No, not one with a lot of noise and battles and comic book heroes, but rather a wonderfully laid back family story set around a gorgeous lake, about the everyday problems of real people from 7 to 70.

    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.

    • 70 Pete Hammond
    This charmer about late middle-aged renaissance is pertinent for these times and a perfect summer comedy for grown-ups looking to escape robots and superheroes.

    Performances are generally first-rate with Hopkins exhibiting an ease and laid-back approach that serves Adam perfectly.

    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.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    The script, from first time screenwriters Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson, takes a predictable premise and gives it surprising depth.

    • 70 Pete Hammond
    The Book of Eli takes the violent, gritty feel of a spaghetti western, marries it with elements of "The Road," places it in the future and gives it a spiritual twist.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Stylish, globe hopping, action-packed comedy that starts at full blast and never lets up.

    Norton's tale of an undetected community of tiny people is perfectly suited for a cartoon and this beautifully rendered, almost old-fashioned version is a gem.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Unbeatable entertainment if you want to climb on board for the ride.

    Although the marketing looks like "Transformers 4," Real Steel is the real deal, a Rocky with robots that ought to have audiences standing up and cheering.

    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Blending a perfect brew of classic '80s songs, big laughs and rockin' performances, director Adam Shankman manages to make this film adaptation of the hit Broadway jukebox musical a red hot summer blast for people who grew up with glam metal - or just can't escape it on the radio.
    • 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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    The film is a really entertaining look at the Bieber phenomenon; the music in Never Say Never is great and Bieber proves himself to be the real thing as a musician and performer.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    A who's who of classic action stars light up the screen for pure combustible entertainment in Sly Stallone's The Expendables, a sort of "Dirty Dozen" meets "Inglourious Basterds"--and then some.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Full of high flying action, nifty monsters, valiant heroes, plotting villains and impressive CGI.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    The story behind brothers Logan and Noah Miller getting their movie made is almost better than what’s onscreen, but the film is heartfelt and engaging enough to be worthy of attention.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    An entertaining fright movie that’s crazy fun and full of genuine scares.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Even better than the first edition, in its own sitcom-ish ways.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    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.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    In some ways the film is reminiscent of "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World" with the theme of greed and a gaggle of people all after a piece of the pot, but Lottery Ticket pays off on the laughs with a strong message about using sudden riches responsibly and the importance of giving back to the community.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Strictly for kids, but pure movie fun nonetheless,
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Wilson is nicely restrained as a loving husband caught in a middle-aged crisis, while Sudeikis makes a great foil as a guy in over his head.
