    Despite Sigismondi's fresh eye, feminist perspective, and rapport with actors, The Runaways feels like a long-form music video, recycling every trope from the doomed-rocker handbook.

    Where Finding Nemo suggested that under-the-waves adventure was limitless, Shark Tale suggests that this sea is over-fished. The krill is gone.

    Bills itself as a comedy but unfolds as the drollest of dramas, an extended-family album for the age of abortion, adoption and donor sperm. It's a cheeky story about turning the other cheek.

    Succeeds as a do-it-yourself handbook of guerrilla filmmaking

    So profoundly does The Third Miracle live up to its title that Agnieszka Holland's exceptional meditation upon a priest's crisis of faith might win the endorsement of archdiocese and agnostic alike.

    To the extent that movies bear the residue of their filmmakers' autobiographies, I found The Pianist particularly compelling.

    An involving fantasy for beamish boys and girls - and their parents.

    This film that imagines the end of the world not as a whimper but as an implosion is a preposterously diverting, instantly forgettable, big-screen video game.

    He (Lee) combines the daredeviltry of Buster Keaton with the devil-may-care of Errol Flynn.

    An unnerving and astonishing thriller.

    This intelligent, postmodern biography from director Irwin Winkler and screenwriter Jay Cocks uses Porter's songs, by turns haunting and hilarious, to decode and reconstruct a life hinted at in the familiar words and music.

    An unsteady empowerment film for 'tweenage girls and their moms, Ice Princess boasts more spark than sparkle.

    An enjoyably sudsy romance starring a moody Keanu Reeves, a broody Sandra Bullock, and the titular structure - a jewel box of glass and steel perched on stilts over Lake Michigan.

    Like this diabolically designed weapon of war, Tanovic's film is coil-sprung to explode on the unsuspecting.

    The film underscores the power of reading, and applying what we read to problem-solving. The story suggests that we don't really see the natural world around us, and if we did our lives, like Jared's and his siblings', would be immeasurably richer.

    Also quite fine is the film's musical score from David Byrne, as unsettling and edgy as the story.

    Sobering and wildly entertaining.

    If, like me, you were hoping for "Scarface" as a hip-hopera, I am sad to report that Get Rich or Die Tryin' has heat, but not sweep.

    In the odd, and oddly compelling, biopic The Notorious Bettie Page, Gretchen Mol is a delight as the saucy brunette.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    This delicious adventure of crude betrayal and elegant revenge is yummy even when reheated by director Kevin Reynolds.

    Romance and Cigarettes is lewd and it's lurid and looks to be a lost pop opera, but it has more vitality than anything else out there.

    Skin is both exasperatingly choppy and exceptionally moving.

    While the impulse for his concert may have been confession and atonement, the cumulative effect is one of a guy struggling mightily to reconcile his divided self.

    Though a fine specimen of cultural anthropology, The Aristocrats is too shapeless to be satisfying as a film.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    As efficient and zippy as its subject.

    First and last, Appaloosa is the slow-but-sure story of the friendship between Virgil and Everett, one a man of action surprised by emotion, the other a man of emotion surprised by action.
