'The Words' unnecessarily complex
It's hard to know for sure what "The Words" was shooting for, writes movie critic Steve Ouellette. Is it a mystery? A romance? An artsy message film?
'Lawless' full of rich performances
Based on the novel "The Wettest County in the World" by former Plattsburgh State professor Matt Bondurant, "Lawless" tells a good, if violent, story that is never dull, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Hit and Run' hard to dislike
Film is a lightweight road movie that maintains an awkward but somehow pleasing balance of action, romance and humor, Steve Ouellette writes.
'ParaNorman' delivers humor, entertainment
A good way to introduce kids to the zombie movie genre is the assessment of P-R movie reviewer, Steve Ouellette.
'Campaign' offers some true belly laughs
Moving starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis has more hits than misses, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Recall' remake lacks originality, fun
The pace is kinetically fast, but there's nothing new, and hardly any thinking involved in "Total Recall," Steve Ouellette writes.
'The Watch' sloppy, predictable
Film elicits more groans than laughs, and never rises above groin-level humor, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Dark Knight Rises' a satisfying conclusion to trilogy
Film is complex and unrelentingly grim, but it's made on a majestic scale, offering jaw-dropping effects and action set pieces to go with deep characters and excellent performances, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Moonrise Kingdom' Anderson's best film yet
It's still quirky, stylized and absurd, but it's beautifully filmed and not so clever and self-important that it interferes with the story or the characters, Steve Ouellette writes.
'The Amazing Spider-Man' waste of time, resources
"Spider-Man" remake isn't a bad movie, but it doesn't have a thread of originality, Steve Ouellette writes.
