    Ultimately, this film is only scary if you're afraid of artfully self-conscious, grainy cinematography.

    For a movie about serial killings and media sensationalism, Cronicas sure is wimpy.
    • 63 Metascore

    Combines an insider's perspective with what can only be described as gutsy cinematography.

    One of the smartest things Kaplan does, besides getting talented Boston folk singer Catie Curtis to contribute to the soundtrack, is hang around long enough to see how this three-headed relationship plays out.

    Keep your big-budget horror movie expectations locked away in a separate crawl space, because this grainy feature debut from writer-director Ti West demands that you buy into the silliness, and the cheese.

    So much schlock and melodrama find their way into Darkness Falls that when an exasperated character shouts near the end ''All this over a [expletive] tooth!,'' you know how he feels.

    It needs only to entertain. And that it does thoroughly, leaving us both charmed and enriched without feeling very preached at. Praise be.

    Fails to drum up much excitement.

    The most disturbing thing about this grass-roots-inspired extreme-wrestling documentary by Paul Hough is how much worse you expect the violence to be.

    Coming and going through the wall's checkpoints is a tiresome and undignified process that makes US airport security look like a cocktail reception.

    If there's one image that sums up the filmmaking style of Takashi Miike, it's the close-up of a bubbling hot pot on the family dinner table.

    So, how's the food? The camera never even goes up close. That's the kind of restaurant documentary this is.
    • 59 Metascore

    Ultimately undercut by its fictional elements and its flat characters.

    This nostalgic licorice whip of a movie assumes there's still an audience for a straight-faced, family-friendly salute to the 1970s heyday of competitive roller disco.

    Highly unoriginal tale.

    Choppy, cheesy historical war epic really has only a couple of things going for it, and its biggest asset remains the heroic popular legend that inspired its making.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    It is at least an "experience" that has to be labeled exhilarating.
    • 58 Metascore

    Artful, especially in the ways it avoids sentimentality and employs vintage film clips of truly riveting performances...But Maximilian's narcissistic examination of his theatrical family -- can be boring, and his creative license with the truth is kind of troubling.

    To see this final installment is to know: It’s time.

    The movie's heart is in the right place, but all its messages of tolerance might resonate better if the Spanish-accented pirate didn't get drawn with a gold tooth and the turban-wearing Khalil wasn't an opportunistic rug merchant.

    As rich and literary a work as you might expect.

    Redmon's film is a welcome reminder that everything comes from somewhere and responsible people should at least pause to examine the label. For one thing, that's how bigger and better documentaries get made.

    Maybe the redemptions offered are simplistic in the context of this place, but they make for a dramatic (if heavily foreshadowed) conclusion.

    For all the controversy surrounding Buffalo Soldiers, you'd think the film would at least be interesting.

    Maybe because Hachmeister has a background in journalism, his movie endeavors to educate by covering a lot of ground in its 90-plus minutes, which is certainly commendable, it's just not that satisfying.

    For a certain kind of moviegoer, Saints and Soldiers provides above-average nostalgia. Others, more hardened, might call it child's play.

    Isn't all wrong. But even at its very best, it's just all right.

    Ramona and Beezus the movie, should not be confused with "Beezus and Ramona'' the book.

    Can be quite amusing and enjoyable to watch.

    Ultimately, Jordan's vision is so murky that Ned Kelly remains as foreign to us as wombat stew.
