Mobsters Rating: If the job was to simulate the real feelings of impatience and frustration that come along with hesitant couples dancing around marital consecration, then The Five Year Engagement succeeds. If the Judd Apatow-produced comedy was trying for anything else—like a relatable, quick-witted romp with likable characters and a sweet ... Read More

Breaking Dawn begins the much anticipated/dreaded final chapter of the Twilight Saga. Ed and Bella get married, knock boots, and start the natural first step for any teen/ancient creepy thing relationship: have a baby!

Mike Cahill's Another Earth proposes what would happen if we were confronted with another world, another life, another version of ourselves. A smart science fiction drama with equally smart characters.

A glossy polished adaptation of the popular romantic epic about a guy, a girl and the whole darn circus. Unfortunately, a truncated script and lack of chemistry between the leads knock it off the high wire.

Woof, woof! Red Riding Hood wants to be Twilight but it's more like Twi-lite. There's no wolf here, just a mangy dog of a movie.

Emily Blunt and Matt Damon fight fate and destiny in George Nolfi's The Adjustment Bureau. Hollywood has a less than stellar track record with adapting Philip K. Dick to the screen. Is this another 'Blade Runner' or an 'Imposter'?

Tangled is funny and cute...then the singing starts and it becomes unbearable...then it stops and it goes back to being funny and cute.

It's kind of a good movie. Actually, it's kind of a great movie. No, it's kind of an awesome movie. Wait, it's...you get my point. BEST ZACH GALIFIANAKIS PERFORMANCE EVER.
