The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Bella and Edward fans will love it, and the Team Jacob members get lots of shirtless wolf guy, but it’s all a little too sparkly.

Jonah Hex

It’s a mess, and Megan Fox is pretty much pointless, but Jonah Hex has its moments of B-movie Western fun.

Toy Story 3

It’s redundant at this point to continue to praise these Pixar films, but they did it again, and it’s funny and heartbreaking and a little scary and one of the best films of the year.

The Karate Kid

Both an homage to the original and a franchise for a new generation, this re-invention is full of action and strong performances, if not a bit too long.


Somehow, in a mainstream US market that likes its genre films to be in space and its summer films to blow things up, Splice is able to make us think, gross us out, and even scare us a little.

From Paris with Love

We’ve seen it before, but this action flick is a quick, funny watch, due mostly to a masterfully ridiculous performance by Travolta, that only sags a little at the end.

The A-Team

Summer is the time for mindless blockbuster shenanigans, and though it’s not a classic or anything, The A-Team revamp is good at what it does and much better than Killers.


Quite possibly one of the worst movies of the year thus far, Killers is an example of what happens when all the wrong things combine into one dreadful movie.

Get Him to the Greek

Better than The Hangover, Get Him to the Greek is funny and raunchy, owing much of its charm to the perfectly cast Russell Brand, Jonah Hill, and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.


A light piece of summer fluff with a cute big dog that will make your kids laugh a little bit.
