    Lior is an irrepressible character as he works a room, doing exactly what a bar mitzvah boy should: challenging, instructing, and, in his own way, healing the world.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Meticulously rendered CGI creatures--from Arthur Rackham-esque flower sprites to a troll that could have sprung from "Jurassic Park"--spike this dark adventure, shot marvelously by Caleb Deschanel.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    This nuanced coming-of-age drama by Cao Hamburger exudes warmth without getting mired in nostalgia.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    More tart than sweet, this contemporary fairy tale provides a worthy vehicle for the fearless Christina Ricci.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    In one slender documentary codirectors Shane King and Arne Johnson accomplish what Hollywood routinely bungles: incisively depicting the inner lives of complicated young females.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The tolerance and loopy poetry of the beloved book by Dr. Seuss have been nicely captured.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The overlapping stories pulse with a tidal rhythm, the film's sensibility flowing between serious and wry, and there are memorable turns from Assi Dayan as the waitress's henpecked dad and Tzahi Grad as a cop with a nonchalant attitude toward babysitting.

    This 2006 drama is refreshing not only for its gentle comic touches but for director Wang Quanan's refusal to sentimentalize China's vanishing nomadic culture: life is harsh and no one's a saint, including his outspoken heroine.

    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Amiable screwball comedy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Bell presides over this insightful, often droll survey like a sweeter, buffer version of Michael Moore, trolling gyms, universities, and Congress to grill assorted experts.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Julianne Moore proves game for anything in this pitch-black true-crime reconstruction.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Tongue-in-cheek dialogue, inventive slapstick and fight sequences, and luminous production design make this a treat.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    There's enough adrenaline pulsating throughout this bang-up Marvel Comics adaptation to erase 2003's Hulk from memory (Ang who?).
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The melodrama form allows Tornatore to examine such current issues as human trafficking and black-market babies within a yarn that, for all its sentiment, is never less than gripping.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    A crime wave gives the heroine a mystery to solve and provides most of the comedy, but the film is stronger in its dramatic stretches.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    This sequel improves on the 2005 original about four friends.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Director Peter Sollett (Raising Victor Vargas) and cinematographer Tom Richmond transform nocturnal New York into a soft-focus wonderland for their sweet but screwball courtship.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    What begins as a leave-taking turns into a homecoming that reflects the mixed-race society of the modern south.
    • 51 Metascore

    The end result is "Mission: Impossible" meets "Speed": high-tech gizmos, exotic European locales, and hair-raising stunts, many performed by Statham himself, who, when he's not shirtless, looks spiffy in Dior.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    As in the original version, the fights are outweighed by existential angst and Buddhist introspection, but the sequence in which a blind swordsman (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) takes on an army of thieves is still gangbusters.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Lessons about family loyalty, tolerance, ingenuity, and sacrifice add depth to the screenplay by Etan Cohen and directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath, but thankfully don't detract from the lunatic maneuvers of a delusional lemur king (Sacha Baron Cohen) and those wily spheniscidae.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The electrifying music helps camouflage the screenplay's hyperbole.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The fulcrum of this deeply humanist work is an extended two-shot of the strike's leader, Bobby Sands (Michael Fassbender), as he converses with a priest (Liam Cunningham); the virtuosic sequence encapsulates the whole sorry history of a horrific civil war.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Engrossing and timely, this crackles with ideas about art, politics, religion, and the terrible costs of war.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    A bright, funny family movie that gets everything right, from story to production design to cast (both human and canine).
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    This amiable romantic comedy benefits from its stellar ensemble.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The lighting, production design, and character modeling are excellent, and director David Bowers (Flushed Away) references "Frankenstein," "Wall-E," "Transformers," and even Abraham and Isaac. But the TV series, primitive though it was, had a sweet innocence and joyfulness that made it more fun.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    The movie includes some tony philosophizing about the conflict between science and faith, but it's mostly a beat-the-clock chase through Rome (nicely evoked in Salvatore Totino's lush cinematography).
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    In the films of Swedish director Jan Troell (The Emigrants, The New Land), ordinary lives assume epic dimensions, and this drama, based on the experiences of his wife's protofeminist grandmother, doesn't sugarcoat the hardships of the early 1900s.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Andrea Gronvall
    Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa switches gears from supernatural horror to poignant social satire.
