    A bit of a throwback, a nostalgic, easygoing Capra-esque comedy that should appeal to both youthful and older audiences.

    Naji is an expressive actor, and so are the wonderful young non-pros who play his children.

    Moody, provocative and intellectually ambitious, Adoration is primed to elicit impassioned discussion among audiences.

    This slice of American life, as seen through the eyes of Palestinian immigrants, is nuanced, engaging and authentically observed.

    Good Hair is cause for hope that Rock continues to make documentaries. His style is lively, smooth and up-to-date, like the most coveted 'do.

    When it comes to 3-D visual splendors, give me Wonderland over Pandora any day.

    The Secret of Kells is a magical adventure unlike anything we've seen on screen before.

    Powerfully honest, insightful and poignant.

    Who would have thought a fire-breathing monster could be one of the most adorable on-screen critters since Babe?

    An excellent adaptation of a wonderful work of fiction (The Age of Grief).

    About a Boy is a rarity in many ways. It's a well-written, witty film whose memorable characters grapple with the nature of family, love, friendship and despair. Even its soundtrack, by Badly Drawn Boy, is perfectly pitched.

    • 88 Claudia Puig
    An irreverent and witty comedy in which the events aren't predictable but are well paced.

    This genre-busting movie has the appearance of a love story but morphs into a thriller, told cleverly in a nonlinear style. Think "Sliding Doors" crossed with "The Sixth Sense," with a little "Memento" thrown in.

    Something this gleefully goofy and consistently funny would be welcome in any environment.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    It is an unsettling tale told simply and chillingly by director Peter Mullan, with stand-out performances, an evocative soundtrack and spare, haunting visuals.

    A sharp-tongued, subtly nuanced tragicomedy starring Jennifer Aniston, who shows her depth as a serious actress in this dark tale.

    Despite the sad denouement, it's still the love story of the year.

    The clash over the house quickly escalates into a modern-day tragedy. It is a fascinating film, handsomely adapted from the book and well directed.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    Worth seeing not only because it's a highly effective thriller, but also because it's a finely tuned evocation of innocence at the mercy of adult cynicism.

    It's great to see an action-adventure family film with heart as well as humor, whimsy alongside wisdom, and a compelling narrative.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    It is at once warmly humanistic and boldly innovative, raising philosophical questions but not answering them.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    Irresistibly endearing, with a visual verve all its own.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    Touching, but not cloying, uplifting and hopeful but never sappy and also just plain funny. There is not a false note among the five core performances, nor a false word in Sheridan's script.

    Finally, there's a big-budget popcorn movie that delivers what moviegoers hunger for: humor, action, thrills and charismatic characters. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is the summer blockbuster we've been waiting for.

    Riveting and darkly comic Super Size Me is a whip-smart documentary.

    Caro gives the fablesque story -- based on a 1,000-year-old Maori legend -- both a contemporary and timeless quality, anchored by newcomer Castle-Hughes' powerful and haunting performance.

    A revelation. One rarely sees American-made movies that are so unafraid to explore emotional cruelty and portray the consequences without positing easy answers or attaching happy endings.
    • 67 Metascore

    The documentary's scathing attack on the war in Iraq and George W. Bush's presidency is informative, provocative, frightening, compelling, funny, manipulative and, most of all, entertaining.

    The most gorgeous of all the Pixar films — which include "Toy Story" 1 and 2, "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters, Inc." —Nemo treats family audiences to a sweet, resonant story and breathtaking visuals.

    It is by turns comic, dark and surprisingly tender. If one must reduce it to simple description, call it a love story with a twist. Or a twisted love story.
