JACK REACHER (2012)
Jack Reacher poster

That Tom Cruise intensity fuels a refreshingly old school, stylish and brutally violent murder mystery. Its name: Jack Reacher.

****
 
THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS (2012)
The Man with the Iron Fists poster

The Man with the Iron Fists is a visually glorious mix of violent chop suey, Blaxploitation and spaghetti western conventions, played to a hip-hop beat as only RZA could do.

***1/2
THE MASTER (2012)
The Master poster

Primal and inquisitive man clash in The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson’s exploration of the post WWII American psyche where matters of the spirit and the mind are thought provokingly raised and beautifully portrayed.

****
 
END OF WATCH (2012)
End of Watch poster

L.A. crime movie veteran David Ayer reaches the peak of his writing/directing talents with End of Watch, a violent and moving cop thriller about brothers in blue trying to survive in an increasingly hostile world.

****
ARGO (2012)
Argo poster

Argo is an intense, true life espionage thriller that draws eerie parallels to today’s anti-American climate, while also adding a laugh or two at the expense of Hollywood.

****
 
FRANKENWEENIE (2012)
Frankenweenie poster

Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie marks a welcome return to form, blending heartfelt drama with a tribute to classic monster movies.

***1/2
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 (2012)
Paranormal Activity 4 poster

The fourth instalment in the Paranormal Activity series proves to be more than a spooky ghost story, but rather an annual institution for horror fans who like their supernatural tales creepy and menacing.

**1/2
 
KILLING THEM SOFTLY (2012)
Killing Them Softly poster

With its focus on American capitalism played out in the mean streets of Boston, Killing Them Softly establishes itself as a new crime classic that is as thought provoking as it is visually and narratively absorbing.

****1/2
