JR and Bo make their predictions for the 2013 Academy Awards
  CAPTAIN PHILLIPS
(***½)
"...compassion and truthfulness-sets this movie apart from action thrillers." (JR)
  the CONJURING
(***)
"Smart and very entertaining..." (JR)
  DJANGO UNCHAINED
(***)
"There's a good movie inside-but it hasn't been carved out of the lopsided excess." (JR)
  ELYSIUM
(***)
"Elysium works, though never as well as it should." (JR)
  ENDERS GAME
(***)
"...mainstream space adventure, and philosophical subtlety wasn't on the table..." (JR)
  GRAVITY
(****)
"...this is easily one of the best and most memorable films of the year." (JR)
  HITCHCOCK
(***)
"...passionate people fighting tooth-and-nail for their artistic satisfaction" (JR)
  HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
(**)
"....full of stuff, in fact, stuff all the way up to a bloated 169-minute running time." (JR)
  HOBBIT 2: DESOLATION OF SMAUG
(**)
"...Jackson meanders from one plot crisis to the next..." (JR)
  HUNGER GAMES 2 CATCHING FIRE
(***)
"...compelling depiction of a country manipulated by-tyranny and fascism." (JR)
  IRON MAN 3
(***½)
"...it’s quite an achievement-that “Iron Man 3” feels so fresh and natural." (JR)
  JLA: FLASHPOINT PARADOX
(***)
"The Flashpoint Paradox is a lot of dark, violent fun but not much else..." (JR)
  LES MISERABLES
(**)
"...leaden bore that practically suffocates under its own sense of self-importance." (JR)
  MAN OF STEEL
(***½)
"...style and swagger attempt to compensate for its flaws and mostly succeeds...." (JR)
  MONSTER UNIVERSITY 2
(**)
"...more creaky than creative and the humor more forced than embedded..." (JR)
  OBLIVION
(**)
"...all your favorite cinematic memories without getting too involved." (JR)
  OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
(***)
"..a whimsical and spirited storybook adventure." (JR)
  PACIFIC RIM
(***)

  STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
(***)
"A highly polished piece of pop cinema with cliffhanger sensibilities..." (JR)
  THOR THE DARK WORLD
(**½)
"...delivers in a generic superhero fashion offering a couple hours' diversion...." (JR)
  WORLDS END
(***)
"...serves as a bittersweet, marvelously effective end of a certain goofy era..." (JR)
  WORLD WAR Z
(**)
"...just another run-of-the-mill zombie film without-the social commentary..." (JR)
  the WOLVERINE
(***)
"...much better than it had to be-there is still some life in the franchise" (JR)
  ZERO DARK THIRTY
(****)
"...suspense derives not from the bullets fired but the dominoes felled." (JR)
