    This film is a miracle, an extravaganza equal to its predecessors and in some ways more stunning. It is a profound testament to the extraordinary power of moving images and sound.

    Not to be missed.

    It's best appraised as a strong ensemble piece, a darkly dreamy slab of social commentary and definitely one of the year's best films.

    This is the breakout role for Sigourney (née Susan) Weaver, whose iconic presence still propels this ride beyond the scores of substandard imitations that followed. Why see it on the big screen? Because it's bloody brilliant.

    Coppola and Murch have balanced their new edit with grace notes of sweetness, elegance and eroticism, and the payoff is grand, providing both a reprieve from the multiple blitzkriegs and a break in the monotony of the cruise up the Nung.

    A masterful film about the magic of performance and the foibles of the artists behind it.

    In this bolder, longer new cut, characters are allowed to finish scenes previously left as DVD extras, effects are creepier, and the theories of "the Tangent Universe" are explored in greater depth. Friends and neighbors, this is a Great American Movie.

    One of the finest qualities of Amadeus is that it reminds us of those rare occasions when an Oscar sweep is actually merited.
    • 81 Metascore

    One of this year's best films--a classic, even, like a C.S. Forester "Hornblower" story on steroids.

    What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.

    Smart people will relish its temerariousness, average people will smile awkwardly and comment that it's "kinda different," and dimly lit people may mistake it for the Elmo movie and drool quietly in the back rows. It's a movie for everyone.

    Kubrick's comic gem sparkles with enduring relevance.

    The miracle here is not so much that Pray captures the DJs in peak form, but that he comprehensively captures SO MANY of them.
    • 73 Metascore

    This sensuous, exotic film is more like an issue of "National Geographic" come to life, rich with cultural detail and insight.

    Easily one of the finest and most sophisticated films of the year.

    These pandas, they're truly wondrous on the big screen, as no digital effect could ever recreate. Director Robert M. Young delivers a spry, richly detailed adventure for general audiences, truly a feat deserving acclaim.

    Director Oliver Parker (An Ideal Husband) -- who also adapted the screenplay to include aspects from Wilde's unrevised four-act version of the play -- embraces the material with great gusto, delivering as charming and irresistible a film as one could demand.

    A thrilling tale smartly told, with an abundance of wit and invention. It's a classic.

    Hallström has leavened the story's bleakness with great warmth, fashioning one of the finest films of the year.

    A grand, old-fashioned epic, this project is every bit as important as "Gladiator" or a new "Star Wars" episode.

    Sometimes the cinema is just heavenly, and this is one of those times.

    Funny, sad, moving and, above all, astute, making I Capture the Castle a fabulous film. Even the cars are tasty.

    A big gob of fun.

    A diverting mix of insight and spectacle, human and superhuman. This machine is built for kids, but rarely do words like "noble," "Hollywood" and "rawkin'" all apply to one movie.

    Amazingly, almost every note of every performance in Bloody Sunday rings true.

    Gleefully blurs the line between species. Vive la révolution!

    This may sound an eensy bit hyperbolic, but dig: Mayor of the Sunset Strip is the greatest rock-and-roll movie of all time.

    A beautiful and timeless achievement, Conrad Rooks' 1972 adaptation of Herman Hesse's appropriation of East Indian mythology still entrances.

    This is a powerhouse of a film, but not for the obvious reasons that it's about a female serial killer, scampering lesbians and whatever. The project's strength instead emerges from a sense of nobility and purpose in honoring its characters.
