The Getaway (1998) – decent remake
The Ring – effectively creepy
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (US) – brutal thriller
Take Shelter – slowly engaging
Haywire – stylized action
Jawbreaker – overly shallow
The I Inside – confusing thriller
The Dark Knight Rises – fitting conclusion
Margin Call – unsatisfying ending
Hated: GG Allin & the Murder Junkies – disturbing insight
