    Rush is too sinfully good for the drama he's in.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Whatever the title of the next installment, this movie is certainly One best forgotten.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Desson Thomson
    Never the magic charmer it sets out to be.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Desson Thomson
    Fans of bubbly romances can consider this a thumbs up. I call it a clenched-teeth concession at best.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Desson Thomson
    Feels more like an overblown TV special than a grand theatrical release.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Desson Thomson
    A chalice of unpretentious delight, flowing over with goodwill, a cheeky love for soccer and, uh, Buddhist humor.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Desson Thomson
    Extraordinarily poetic, suspenseful film.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 20 Desson Thomson
    I'd give this movie about half a miracle.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Desson Thomson
    A heartbreaker, plain and simple.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    Proceeds with an episodic pace, full of narrative twists and turns that clearly are not pretested by a Hollywood committee. Things feel sort of strange and original all at once.

    May not rock the joint. But then, it isn't trying to.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Desson Thomson
    Works better as a subject for high school study rather than lasting art.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Desson Thomson
    The story moves episodically, almost painstakingly.
    • 53 Metascore

    Its greatest asset...Flora Montgomery, a flash of blond, Irish fire who makes Trudy well worth Brendan's trouble.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    Serves as a fascinating exploration of racial and social prejudice; and an indictment of cultural miscegenation.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    In the end, Made is a movie with better potential than actual results.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    Smells much more like real life than the immediate mating that occurs between expensive movie stars on Hollywood soundstages.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Desson Thomson
    What's best about Faithless is its honesty, its lack of desire to ingratiate itself with the audience.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Desson Thomson
    A Chinese film whose simple surface belies greater mysteries.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Desson Thomson
    On one level, Yi Yi is classic soap opera, with a suicide attempt, a wedding ceremony, even a brutal 11 o'clock news murder, all in the mix. But Yang's direction is so admirably restrained, it lends rich heft to everything.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Desson Thomson
    A three-ring circus of visual pleasure, showing us the beauty of Korean garment, custom and national character.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    KEN, KEN, KEN, not another Shakespeare, pleeeeeeez.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    A surprisingly gripping experience.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    All fire-and-brimstone bunk, a tired compendium of involuntary crucifixions, grim messages carved into human flesh, fly buzzings, ominous choral chants on the soundtrack and at least one head twisting.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Desson Thomson
    Moderately pleasing adaptation of the W. Somerset Maugham novella.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    A sort of thinking-person's cornball movie.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Desson Thomson
    The movie's a gas. Very funny, to a rather dark degree.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Desson Thomson
    Narratively club-footed but directorially assured.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Desson Thomson
    There's little here to offend anyone, and even less here to excite anyone.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Desson Thomson
    Grim, yes, and great viewing.
