In David Fincher's“Gone Girl,” the director shines a light into the deepest depths of the psychological minefield that is marriage, creating a portrait of a couple rivaled in toxicity only by “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” The result is a wonderfully wicked adaptation of Gillian Flynn's thriller starring Ben Affleck as the husband who comes under suspicion when his wife goes missing.
Hell-o dolly! 'Annabelle' could be spawn of Chuckie
For “Annabelle,” James Wan gives the director's chair to his “Conjuring” cinematographer John R. Leonetti, whose pedestrian approach doesn't improve Gary Dauberman's ridiculous plot twists, absurd character reactions and embarrassingly generic horror film dialogue.

Dour 'Men, Women' weaves somber suburban stories
If ever there was a movie that needed a window to be opened, a blast of fresh air to be let in, it's Jason Reitman's “Men, Women & Children.” Reitman's suburban tale artfully weaves a handful of overlapping stories of lonely teenagers and their lonely parents in small town Texas, all of whom are unable to summon a smile in the two hours of this dour, downbeat melodrama.
