Ben Affleck has not only put himself back on the A-list as an actor with Argo, as a director, he is now in a class all by himself. Our Argo review finds the film one of the best of 2012 and an easy early contender for Best Picture.
Smashed is the Mary Elizabeth Winstead coming out party. Our Smashed review can firmly state that the actress deserves to be one of the five nominated for Best Actress.
Our The Paperboy review feels that the film pretends to be a Tennessee Williams type of Southern thriller. Instead, the Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey starring movie is as enjoyable as Florida humidity.
Taken 2 brings Liam Neeson back to the role that made him an action star in Taken in 2008. Unfortunately, our Taken 2 review finds the film a little less thrilling than its predecessor.
Won't Back Down should give stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis some Best Actress Oscar love. Our Won't Back Down review also states that the film is powerful, even if it paints teachers' unions as villains.
Adam Sandler proves why he's one of Hollywood's most bankable performers in Hotel Transylvania. Our Hotel Transylvania review states that his Dracula, opposite Selena Gomez as his daughter Mavis, is unlike any we've ever seen and delightfully so.
Looper begins and ends with the most original of premises. Our Looper review finds Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt stunning, but the story sizzles too.
