    Kubrick's comic gem sparkles with enduring relevance.

    We're told that this new version is tweaked and enhanced, with the E.T. puppet digitally smoothed out, and the guns in the meanies' hands removed (silly, but bravo).

    • 94 Metascore

    This astonishingly gritty film maintains its strong niche between Roberto Rossellini's "Open City" and Paul Greengrass' "Bloody Sunday" as a pinnacle of war-torn neo-realist drama.
    • 94 Metascore

    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.

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

    The film succeeds as massive, astonishing entertainment; verily, enthralling us is its chief goal.
    • 91 Metascore

    An animated extravaganza of Gallic wit and soul that delivers more wild humanity than many of the year's live-action features. In a word: go.

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

    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.

    What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.

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

    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.

    Meandering but reasonably charming.
    • 89 Metascore

    Coppola hasn't delivered a turkey--it's a cute little movie, if not as rich as her brother Roman's similarly themed "CQ"--but when work this potentially satisfying remains flatly obvious, it's almost worse than being flat-out bad.

    Despite the presence of several sublimely cracked actors and some of the most abrasive white-trash caricatures since "Raising Arizona," Birch totally owns this movie.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Gregory Weinkauf
    The year's greatest adventure, and Jackson's limited but enthusiastic adaptation has made literature literal without killing its soul.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Gregory Weinkauf
    Gleefully blurs the line between species. Vive la révolution!
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Gregory Weinkauf
    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.
    • 86 Metascore

    The confusing, demanding role finally brings the actor home, and us with him.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Gregory Weinkauf
    An inspiring effort, lavishly lensed and featuring a spicy (if occasionally synthy) score from A.R. Rahman. Best of all, it's also something of a musical, as the characters are not above breaking into song and dance to serve their emotions.

    Hero keeps its characters stiffly archetypal, like chess pieces sent whizzing through outrageous maneuvers. Unfortunately, this apparent choice of spectacle over intimacy put me at a slight remove.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Gregory Weinkauf
    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.
    • 82 Metascore

    A nifty little war movie that defies convenient categorization.

    While much of the film is as scattershot as life itself, there are a few superb sequences involving lucid dreaming that really get down to business.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Gregory Weinkauf
    A big gob of fun.
    • 81 Metascore

    The songs are actually quite good--if also hideously embarrassing--but these comedians take their roles far too seriously, to their peril and our puzzlement.
    • 81 Metascore

    While this road may contain too many potholes -- and plotholes -- to sustain an even ride, there are moments of greatness scattered throughout to remind us why Lynch is vital and why the French think he's so nifty.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Gregory Weinkauf
    One of this year's best films--a classic, even, like a C.S. Forester "Hornblower" story on steroids.

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

    It's a noble work, an elegant work, a compassionate work -- and a somewhat tedious and glaringly self-important work.
