FAV Movies

  1. Savages

    A fast-paced darkly comic thriller with a sex-drugs-and-severed-heads narrative propelled by music-video-style gimmicks

  2. This Is the End

    Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy is a disaster pic and riff on similar comedies

  3. The Great Gatsby

    Baz Luhrman's adaptation is not a delirious train wreck but it's not a success, either

  4. Iron Man 3

    Shane Black's action-comedy is chockfull of the sparkly stuff fans want

  5. John Dies at the End

    A quirky, mind-bending romp pitting slackers against mutated beings

  6. Warm Bodies

    A zombie-filled fairy tale is a sweet mid-winter diversion

  7. Les Misérables

    Tom Hooper's film is a moving adaptation, directed with relentless intimacy and beautifully performed

  8. Life of Pi

    Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's novel is a moving, absorbing, thoughtful cinematic adventure

  9. Wreck-It Ralph

    The secret world of video-arcade characters comes to live in this animated comedy

  10. Seven Psychopaths

    McDonagh's intricately constructed film is a smorgasbord of homage and (affectionate) take-down of the violent-crime feature

  11. Frankenweenie

    The pros and cons of bringing your dead pet back to life highlight this animated comedy

  12. Looper

    Rian Johnson delivers an entertaining sci-fi actioner about time travel, and choices

  13. The Bourne Legacy

    The spy thriller gets a spin-off, but despite a good cast, fails to engage

  14. ParaNorman

    An amusingly macabre comic fable, told via stop-motion animation

  15. The Dark Knight Rises

    A solid piece of entertainment that lacks the coherent themes and tension to be as provocative and enthralling as fans might have hoped.

  16. We're the Millers

    The lighter side of drug smuggling is examined in this comedy
