    A film about how outwardly alienating our circles are (much to the detriment of our careers) and how caustic our supposedly nurturing intimacies can be at the same time.

    He's either daring you not to laugh or daring you not to care, but either way, you'll laugh, care and worry about the consequences in Dark Horse.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    The premise is fetching and feels like a mystery, particularly as the film orchestrates its story to make the work of the Alps group seem like a kind of heist.

    The shadow of Whitney Houston's stardom and crushing recent death hang heavy over this midrange movie that promises its female audience at least three good cries during its somewhat overlong run time.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    Premium Rush has a rewarding relentlessness and a payoff that suggests that whirring city that surrounds us in is full of supporters who see past the system.
    • 32 Metascore

    The song and dance interaction of kids hollering advice during Blue's Clues happens here on the big screen, which is meant to transform the movie into a social event of sorts.
    • 45 Metascore

    With an incredible performance by young Natasha Calls and surprisingly effect direction by Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch) you'll be surprised how this horror gets you just when you think you're safe.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    The laughs are proportionate to the stakes, which are middle-of-the-road.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    It's never boring but the relentless twists do get a bit tedious.

    Trash-action director Paul W.S. Anderson's (Alien vs. Predator) finds no cultural purpose for this rather literal adaptation of the Musketeers, but it's not so horrible it deserved to be protected from the cold eye of film critics.

    Surrogate fathers and family values are at the foreground, making the film a quick sell to parents - especially as it boasts the added value of literary roots.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    The film's biggest (and saddest) crime is malaise - it's not that John Carter doesn't care about what it's doing, it just can't make us care, even though the magnitude of every event, conflict and emotion is as melodramatic as its Victorian roots.
    • 64 Metascore

    Still, the fans are lovable no matter how mixed the Comic-Con bag is, and Morgan Spurlock is precisely the doc maker to tell us about it.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    It's a great (if middle-of-the-road) family comedy to seek out.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    To say the franchise is coasting along on fumes suggests it once ran on a full tank, which may not even be true for "Meet the Parents," the surprise hit that kicked off this broad comic franchise.
    • 38 Metascore

    The Rite might have been more affecting if the performances gave just a hint that its histrionics were more than just that.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    From Prada to Nada might appeal to tweens but word of mouth won't be nearly as strong as Austen's parlor gossip.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    This foreign view of the subject is anthropologically useful, however the film's photo animation technique transforms family photos (used extensively to fill in historical plot holes) into something that resembles zombie-resurrection.
    • 43 Metascore

    On the surface Monte Carlo is charming, oddly down-home wish-fulfillment, but it's riddled with unexplored class issues and generic filmmaking.
    • 62 Metascore

    A chick flick for do-gooders, The Help suffers from a malady common to the discrimination drama: its treatment of inequality is more condescending than the prejudice it aims to remedy.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 40 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    The mother/daughter drama should have played a bigger part in this film as the 87-minute runtime passes quickly and leaves us feeling utterly short-changed.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    The film's strength isn't its shock tactics - it's the rapid-fire, party montage editing that finds a million natural ways to put mundane actions and moments up against each other for comic effect.

    While A Thousand Words features some reverent flashes and even has the potential to touch audiences (a moment involving a mother with Alzheimer's particularly hits home), it suffers from being too broad.
    • 62 Metascore

    Killer Joe isn't as outlandish in premise as it is in execution, which is saying something.
    • 72 Metascore

    ParaNorman is easily one of the most charming, imaginative and quirky comedies to come out of Laika Entertainment (Coraline), but for all its cleverness and urbane wit, it's in no way appropriate for kids.
    • 18 Metascore

    The soulless-ness of their empty plot of track homes and super-store existence invokes both "Poltergeist" and "Employee of the Month."
    • 44 Metascore

    We all have to make jokes around the water cooler, and if enough people bother to see Killer Elite, its silly nonsense could make for a great comedy routine by Greg from IT.
    • 32 Metascore

    If this horror movie cashes in on the audience that echoes its character's awareness ("That's where the nucular thing happened, right?") then we're about to learn how low our national academic standards are.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Sara Maria Vizcarrondo
    Even the presence of Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as his pint-sized straight man Boo Boo, couldn't save the movie.
    • 24 Metascore

    Apollo 18 is a drab horror that tries to plant fears about untrustworthy authority (Nixon, NASA, etc) that are as stale as a freeze-dried peas.
