  1. American Milkshake 2013 "Milkshake" sucks all the flavor out of a tasty premise ... full review
  2. Concussion 2013 Shot as if they were ads for high-thread-count bed sheets, the pic's talky afternoon delights remain more flowery than erotic. full review
  3. Dirty Wars 2013 [The] astonishingly hard-hitting "Dirty Wars" renders the investigative work of journalist Jeremy Scahill in the form of a '70s-style conspiracy thriller. full review
  4. Maniac 2013 A shocker of a remake, equal parts stylish and scuzzy. full review
  5. My Amityville Horror 2013 Where Walter's film succeeds is in rendering Lutz, onscreen throughout, as an indelibly prickly and unsettling figure. full review
  6. The ABCs of Death 2012 The ABCs of Death is an appallingly bad concoction of disgusting shorts that run through the alphabet but really should've stopped at "A." full review
  7. Cheerful Weather For The Wedding 2012 A costumer that's well named for being pleasant and conventional but little more. full review
  8. Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away 2012 A bona fide high-wire act, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away delivers towering thrills through its candy-colored 3D ode to the titular outfit's astounding acrobatics. full review
  9. Goats 2012 Genial but gratingly irrelevant and none too witty. full review
  10. Indie Game: The Movie 2012 The pic scores big points by drawing a sharp distinction between corporate vidgame programmers and indies. full review
  11. The Invisible War 2012 An aptly infuriating expose of sexual abuse within the U.S. military. full review
  12. Shut Up and Play the Hits 2012 Much like the band's self-conscious synth-pop itself, Shut Up is initially satiric but ultimately disarming in its emotional resonance. full review
  13. Sleepless Night 2012 There's no mistaking Jardin's playful mastery of the Hollywood-style action aesthetic; his movie starts in high gear and accelerates steadily from there. full review
  14. Struck by Lightning 2012 A mediocre coming-of-age indie. full review
  15. Another Happy Day 2011 [Mistakes] over-the-top dysfunctional family cruelty for comedy and drama. full review
  16. Footloose 2011 Paramount's Footloose reboot never quite cuts loose enough to distinguish itself from the original. full review
  17. Sarah Palin: You Betcha! 2011 Sarah Palin -- You Betcha! shovels enough dirt on the Tea Party guru and self-described hockey mom to satisfy her haters, but lacks sufficient humor and insight to make it a must-see for anyone outside the Brit muckraker's fan base. full review
  18. Last Night 2010 Tastefully provocative, ultimately haunting. full review
