January continues to be the dumping ground for weak films, but thankfully there are still some holdovers from Oscar season to keep us happy. This week we have scores for A Haunted House and Gangster Squad, but the big one is Kathryn Bigelow’s controversial film Zero Dark Thirty. Find out what the LAMB members thought of these films and don’t forget to visit the forums to add your reviews for the next edition of the LAMBScores.

LAMB Bites:

Surrender to the Void: “A gripping and entrancing film about one of the great manhunts in world history that features a magnificent performance from Jessica Chastain.”

The Movie Review Warehouse: “A little too much procedure, not enough cinema.”

Movies Hate You Too: “Keeping in mind the aspects of the film that work well, there’s not much here that you couldn’t find in a well produced America’s Most Wanted special.”

Movies Hate You Too

 

LAMB Bites:

Time for a film: ”Supported by a strong cast and a superb score, Gangster Squad attempts to replicate a typical gangster style movie and does it well.”

FlixChatter: ”A gritty story without the grit… there’s just no immersive quality nor sense of realism as the whole thing feels like one giant ‘gangster-ized’ set.”

An Online Universe: ”Gangster Squad is a predictable and boring, almost cartoonish mob flick, which completely wastes both the talents of its cast and the audience’s time.”
