    The second movie by "Being John Malkovich" writer Charlie Kaufman is even weirder than his first.

    This is a parlor trick, but it's a hell of a good one.

    Isn't much more than a student film made by a talented amateur who's in over his head. Burns has a decent eye and a breezy sense of pace, and he'll make better movies if he remembers where he came from.

    For the most part it's a blast.

    It may be a haphazard mess, but it's actually pretty funny.

    I wanted to take these two characters somewhere else and make a real movie about them...But Vaughn provides so many spooky, hilarious, unhinged moments, you won't mind sitting through it.

    An engrossing, gem-hard little popcorn-cruncher.

    An endless battle scene in search of a movie. It's every bit as harrowing -- and also every bit as pointless and misguided -- as the botched military mission it depicts.

    A chaste, lively and mildly goofy romance to dispel the winter blahs.
    • 55 Metascore

    As utterly disastrous movies go, this one's really got something.

    It might be nice if Ghosts of Mars had more to offer than snappy repartee and shameless gore, or if it could borrow a little narrative tension from its Alien Chain Saw forebears.

    Never quite establishes its own identity, and when you remember it in two years it's likely to be that movie you saw that you kind of liked with that girl in it, what's her name, from TV.

    This version of the Potter saga is fun and harmless rather than memorable or imaginative. That's certainly no crime.

    OK, so Valentine is, like, this new serial-killer movie that totally blows. But kind of in a good way. Like, it's funny.

    The resulting film directed by Scott Hicks is afflicted by terminal nostalgic drift. You come out of the theater with nothing more specific than half-pleasant memories of baseball gloves, Ferris wheels and vintage automobiles. I've had naps that were more exciting.

    It remains a puzzling dream, vivid in detail and overly obvious in symbolism, fueled by half-digested lumps of malice and wonder.
    • 36 Metascore

    There's nothing unconventional or daring about On_Line, but considering how cheap it undoubtedly was to make, the acting, writing and direction all stand up pretty well; this is more intelligent and better structured than at least half the Hollywood movies I see.

    The funny thing about all this is that a half-hour into Underworld I couldn't wait for it to be over. When it really was over, I couldn't wait for the next installment. Go figure.

    The 76-year-old Zeffirelli will make many more movies, but Tea With Mussolini has the unmistakable feeling of a personal testament. Its sunny disposition and modest wit are well-suited to the genial temper of this born entertainer.

    • 60 Andrew O'Hehir
    A fever dream about an aging, grasping, neurotic artist who brings his disastrous personal life, thinly veiled, into his work and ends up as a grotesque caricature of himself, alienating everyone who ever loved him.
    • 73 Metascore

    Wag the Dog is such a crisply delivered political satire, so packed full of wickedly amusing details and expertly modulated performances and with its heart so obviously in the right place that I really, truly wish I could tell you it was also a good movie.

    In its quest to create "wholesome" entertainment, the movie industry is furiously turning back the clock four decades or so, to the days when men were men, girls were cute but knew their place and pencil-necked Poindexters stayed out of your damn face.

    An elegant but muddled affair, worth seeing despite (and maybe because of) its own split personality.
    • 53 Metascore

    Apr├Ęs Vous offers nice sound design and an unfussy presentation of middle-class Paris. It comes and goes with no unpleasant aftertaste.

    5x2
    In the end I respected 5x2 more than I loved it. As we move backward in time, the distance between audience and characters inevitably widens -- we know what's going to happen and they don't -- and I found the effect a little astringent.

    Yes
    For the most part Yes buzzes with visual life and imagination.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Andrew O'Hehir
    A lovely, faintly sinister travelogue.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Andrew O'Hehir
    It has, at times, a loopy, edgy humor and moments of genuinely affecting pathos. But somehow the combination doesn't add up to anything.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Andrew O'Hehir
    This is an ambling, relaxed talking-head docu in the grand European style.
    • 42 Metascore

    The kind of little indie you'll either hate or find impossible to resist. I fall into the latter camp, but can appreciate opposing views.
