End of Watch / Officer Down

Two new releases shine a light on the shield.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm a sucker for a good cop movie, and End of Watch is a great one. Had I seen it before its home-video release, it would have made my 2012 year-end list.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

High school was tough.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
John Hughes, for all the love people heap on his ’80s teen movies, was far too easy on high school. Maybe your high school experience was different than mine — and, if so, congrats. For many of us, however, those years were a marathon of self-pity, heartache, passion and anything else you’d find on an album by The Smiths.

Comedy

Rod Lott
Let’s at least give Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal commendation from the start for not being a zombie movie. There are too damn many of those, but cannibals? Hmmm ...

An American Ghost Story

A pile of sheet.


Horror

Rod Lott

Here's how ludicrous the protagonist of An American Ghost Story is: He still uses American Online. Here's how ludicrous An American Ghost Story is as a whole: It uses AOL's once-ubiquitous greeting of “You've got mail!” as a scare.
