We don't often get new releases on a Saturday, but Christmas sort of creates its own rules. Here's a quick and handy guide to what's coming out in theaters this weekend, courtesy of the insatiable film junkies here at Cinematical. Happy Holidays!

'True Grit' -- "Ultimately, though, if your biggest gripe about a flick is that you wish it was longer, then that's probably a darn good film. 'True Grit' might not go down as one of the Coen's most "unique" experiments, but it sure might be recalled as one of their coolest." -- Erik Davis (full review)

'Blue Valentine' (pictured) -- "With each flashback, we see a couple falling in love, and a couple falling out of love, creating a dual-sided love story and a tragedy at the same time. But where you know the ending of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, you have no idea where this is ultimately heading." -- Kevin Kelly (full review)

'Little Fockers' -- The elements that made 'Meet the Parents' a treat -- the surprise, the novelty, the sharp banter -- are long gone. This is a pale, sickly imitation of the original, so derivative and putrid that you'd think it was the fifth sequel, not the second. -- Eric D. Snider (full review)

'Somewhere' -- "It's repetitive but never redundant, an inwardly spiraling movie that ends with a straight line that some will find jarring, others majestic ... what might seem like a retread or a self-involved bit of make-believe blossoms almost imperceptibly into one of the year's best films." -- David Ehrlich (full review)

'Another Year' -- "Leigh presents all of this in his typical slice-of-life fashion, light on plot but heavy on characterization, full of effortlessly funny dialogue." -- Eric D.Snider (full review)

'Biutiful' -- "A brilliantly-observed study of a character facing his demise, and that it dares to challenge real issues about migrant workers and the black market is all the more impressive." -- Joe Utichi (full review)

'Gulliver's Travels' -- "Jack Black does his Jack Black routine, of course, mugging with a tenacity no green-screen effect can match. Better yet, he even manages to say lines like "These little people have grown large in my heart" with a straight face -- this is why he gets paid the big bucks, people." -- William Goss (full review)

'The Illusionist' -- "A bittersweet love letter to silent showmanship and a lament for its obsolescence on both stage and screen." -- William Goss (full review)
