    Hasty pacing makes for a rich and exciting movie, but not an especially spooky or spellbinding one.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Gregory Weinkauf
    A small but grand expression of the beauty of the feminine, which brings everyone together with revised and deepened appreciation.
    • 65 Metascore

    Writer-director-actor Cedric Klapisch simultaneously shows great moviemaking flair and reveals a very peculiar worldview.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Gregory Weinkauf
    The filmmakers' investment in their weird visions is wildly unorthodox, but the payoff is oddly satisfying.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Gregory Weinkauf
    Smart, sassy and much more fun than most political diatribes.
    • 64 Metascore

    It's pretty safe to say that claustrophobic, gay-themed murder mysteries haven't been this much fun since "Deathtrap."

    The soul of Gladiator is made sluggish by a maddening lack of suspense.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Gregory Weinkauf
    Stupid camera shenanigans aside, theater veteran Crowley deftly directs his large, stellar cast, and playwright-cum-screenwriter Mark O'Rowe serves up a wild knot of character arcs pitched somewhere among the neighborhoods of Ken Loach, Mike Leigh and Danny Boyle.

    If Hallström has a problem with tone, it lies in his almost supernatural niceness. Thus, what arrives on-screen is purely a man's feminism, simple and trite and beautiful and vital.

    Happily, then, the first movie of the Harry Potter series casts a splendid spell, as screenwriter Steve Kloves has transcribed J.K. Rowling's novel nearly to a T, with precious little tweaked or trimmed.

    Fry establishes himself as an inspired, world-class talent behind the camera and delivers my favorite film of the year thus far.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Gregory Weinkauf
    The design is gorgeous, the dialogue delicious, and even the supporting characters prove resonant.

    There's just no arguing with 12 centuries of flamenco, and, in this sensuous movie, no resisting it.
    • 63 Metascore

    Standing on its own, it's comme ci, comme ça, self-serious when it should be adventurous, coy when it should be revelatory. One must afford it props, though, for its proud celebration of insanity. Now that is truly creepy.

    A mess, but it's a rousing mess, with ample humor and action to satisfy the discerning dullard within.
    • 63 Metascore

    I love it, but much in the way I managed to love "The Phantom Menace" -- in spite of its bloat, swaggering self-importance and largely neutered characters.

    It's definitely an enchanting spectacular for Potter fans anxious to ride the Hogwarts Express toward a new year of magic and mischief.
    • 63 Metascore

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

    The movie features several political themes for adults and is mostly delightful for kids. Just consider yourself warned about the live-action Carly Simon video at its tail end.

    Rarely does an established filmmaker so ardently waste viewers' time with a gobbler like this -- it's pretty shocking that this thing isn't even artsy. Barring a few brief moments of instantaneously fizzling inspiration, it's merely fartsy.

    Smith has fashioned a complex, contemporary Bible epic on his own terms. By turns crafty and clunky, pious and profane, it's clearly a labor of love.

    The movie will leave you smiling forgetfully on the way out, and Myers will have done his job.

    Austere little creep-out.
    • 62 Metascore

    The Dreamers is a real humdinger, at once an intimate romance, a glimpse into a rather unconventional friendship and a beautifully focused celebration of cinema itself.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Gregory Weinkauf
    The resulting project matters much and should be seen, but how much it'll be FELT depends on your specific level of patience for a director who presumes audience comprehension to be at about a fourth-grade level (at least he's a shoo-in for Hollywood).
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Gregory Weinkauf
    It's light fantasy, but lovely and astute.

    Björk holds the movie together, her natural charisma and the overwhelming intensity of her emotions should blind a lot of viewers to the ludicrousness of the story and the intentionally rotten videography.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Gregory Weinkauf
    A loud and ghastly movie to sit through and not short on gratuitous hideousness, but Darabont has also done his best to baste it with humanity and sweetness.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Gregory Weinkauf
    Forces its snuggly weirdo upon us and instructs us from the get-go to love him.
    • 61 Metascore

    The bulk of the film showcases some of the best direction of actors this year.
