    The visuals are stunning, perhaps the most fully realized of any film.

    A genuine triumph, a great movie with astounding performances so natural, so genuine, that you forget it's a movie.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Bill Goodykoontz
    It's one of the best movies of the year, one of the best entries ever in the Way We Live Now oeuvre.

    50/50 is a tremendous movie. It's also a really funny one, which doesn't mean it won't make you cry.

    It is particularly rewarding to see Clooney outside his comfort zone of self-composed cool in The Descendants, Alexander Payne's beautifully gentle, funny and moving film.

    The Artist is such an engaging, delightful film that, if you like movies, you will walk out of the theater with a smile. You just will; it's that inspired.

    A great movie, a look inside a world so foreign that it might as well be another planet, yet so universal that its observations are painfully familiar to anyone, anywhere.

    Simply put, Argo is why we go to movies.

    Wreck-It Ralph is smart, funny, sweet and sassy. And that's just Sarah Silverman's character... The movie is a treat for kids and the parents they drag to see it. Or maybe it'll be the other way around. Either way. It doesn't matter how you get to it. Just get there.

    A great movie, an astonishing achievement on nearly every level.

    Though everyone is older this time around, and the themes are darker, harder to enjoy, the conversation is just as engrossing. So is the film.

    What a great movie.
    • 96 Metascore

    It is a remarkable achievement.

    The acting is outstanding, the direction assured if straightforward. 12 Years a Slave is a history lesson of the best type. It’s brilliant. But, more crucially, it’s important. It’s brutal truth that demands to be seen.

    Her
    Her is an outstanding movie, in part because of its originality, but also because of its execution.

    Boyhood is not just a great movie, it's a landmark achievement in film.

    Birdman is a treat. But it's also more than that. It's a full-fledged wonder.
    • 94 Metascore

    Inside Out is terrific, a mind-bending concept turned into a brilliant film, a return to form for Pixar not just in terms of quality but in taking risks — risks that pay off.

    McCarthy and his brilliant cast make hard work and truth-telling inspiring.
    • 88 Metascore

    Foster was born to this kind of role, rugged but soulful, and he’s outstanding. The surprise is Pine, giving by far his best performance.

    Moonlight is a minor miracle, a movie that mines beauty out of the ugliest situations, and a glimmer of hope from heartbreak.
    • 96 Metascore

    Manchester by the Sea is a masterpiece in a minor key, an exploration of grief that never lets its characters — or its audience — off the hook. It manages this even when it’s funny, which is surprisingly often.

    Gosling is terrific, playing hangdog and irritable yet still managing to be someone you root for (even if you want to smack him in the head every now and then). Stone is even better. It’s her best performance, and that’s saying something. Their relationship, their chemistry, everything about it, and everything about La La Land is, well, magic.

    There Will Be Blood is a masterpiece; Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as a ruthless oilman is without flaw.

    Dunkirk is a great movie, both an old-time inspirational war epic and at the same time very much a Christopher Nolan movie.

    Toy Story 3 is very much a worthy entry in the series, a movie well worth making (and seeing). It continues the legacy. It just doesn't expand upon it.

    A perverse delight, the rare film that makes you feel good about feeling bad (or at least watching others do so).

    The Secret in Their Eyes never lets you forget that you're watching a movie - and never lets you wish you were doing anything else.
    • 78 Metascore

    Please Give is an almost perfectly rendered slice of life, buoyant with wonderful performances.

    It's Douglas' movie - and you've got a fine movie.
