Emotional 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' is extraordinary
The Bathtub is a place of myths and wonders, a broken down teardrop of Louisiana marsh and mud in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and the setting for an extraordinary new drama whose fierceness, like its 6-year-old heroine Hushpuppy, grabs on and won't let go.
 
Jack Kerouac's stream of consciousness novel "On the Road" comes to the screen more or less intact as a not-altogethersatisfying road trip into the Beat Era. The "Motorcycle Diaries" team of director Walter Salles and screenwriter Jose Rivera have made an "unfilmable book" cinematically coherent, capturing the geographical possibilities, the feel and flavor of this blend of biography and Beatnik history.
 
Laughs and tears come at 'the End of the World'
For its first half, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" is as lost and out of sorts as its title. Is it a comic romance set during Earth's final days, a dark lampooning of every If I had a week to live/Party like it's 1999 cliche you've ever heard?
 
Stunning 'Life of Pi'
Ang Lee is perhaps the most famous Taiwanese-born film director working today. His films, from martial arts spectacular "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (臥虎藏龍) to cowboy romance masterpiece "Brokeback Mountain," have captivated audiences across the world.
 
'The Twilight Saga' ends with real bite
Finally -- finally! -- the "Twilight" franchise embraces its own innate absurdity with the gleefully over-the-top conclusion, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2."
 
Cram school romance
Although its name doesn't indicate it clearly, "When a wolf falls in love with a sheep" recounts a love encounter between two young adults who've lost their purpose, searching for their next step in life.
 
'Trouble With the Curve' shows Eastwood has lost his fastball
"Trouble With the Curve" is a baseball dramedy that telegraphs its pitches, an amiable, meandering character study whose big plot points hang there like the curveballs of its title. We see them coming a long time before they cross the plate.
 
Wolf, sheep fall in love for good
From the outset "When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep" really just looks like your everyday rom-com with the boy-meets-girl-falls-in-love scenario. It is set, however, in a world we might consider quite the opposite of romantic -- stressful, suffocating cram schools.

Ambitious 'Argo' one of year's best films
Amovie about the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis probably doesn't sound like it would be a laugh riot -- or should be -- but that's just one of the many ways in which "Argo" is a glorious, gripping surprise.
 
'Margin Call' opens your eyes to Wall Street
"Margin Call" takes ripped-from-the-headlines events and dramatizes them for all they're worth. Which turns out to be quite a lot.
