    The visuals are stunning, perhaps the most fully realized of any film.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Bill Goodykoontz
    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    It is a remarkable achievement.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Bill Goodykoontz
    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Bill Goodykoontz
    A perverse delight, the rare film that makes you feel good about feeling bad (or at least watching others do so).
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Bill Goodykoontz
    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.
    • 69 Metascore

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

    In theory, we go to movies for enjoyment. Director Rodrigo Cortés inverts that notion with Buried, a terrific, claustrophobic, fist-clenching film in which he tortures his audience in exquisite fashion.

    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.
    • 77 Metascore

    Like its stars, the film's not particularly flashy, it's just good, and it's hard to find fault in that.

    The naturalistic style Michod employs adds to the sense of dread.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Bill Goodykoontz
    To say that the film is uncomfortable to watch is an understatement. It's searing. Yet it's also invaluable.
    • 86 Metascore

    Watching the film, emotions range from sadness, of course, to frustration to outright anger.

    It's a measure of how good a film Nowhere Boy is that it would be compelling even if it were the story of the formative years of a boy named Joe Brown.

    Once it's done, you feel terrible for these people, for their lives, for their daughter, especially. Is that entertainment? To each his own, but it is compelling and, yes, rewarding.

    Scarier than anything you'll find in a horror movie this time of year.

    127 Hours is based on Ralston's memoir, and it's a really good movie because director Danny Boyle is a genius.
