As both a film critic and reporter, I have to sit through a lot of terrible movies. This year I spent hours of my life watching movies like New Year's Eve, Spy Kids: All The Time in the World, Abduction and Waiting For Forever.

Sundance Review: Take Shelter Is An Unsettling, Gripping American Original Sundance Review: Take Shelter Is An Unsettling, Gripping American Original
