    New rule: All Disneynature films must be narrated by Tina Fey.

    What’s on camera is both damning and expertly assembled, a filmmaking effort worthy of standing with 2009’s Oscar-winning documentary about dolphin abuse, “The Cove.”

    Knowlton has landed on four stories that deserve to be told, and she's told them in a straightforward way that gets the job done, with obvious dedication and love.

    Kevin James's latest comedy doesn't promise any bing or bang, only boom. Take it at its word.

    Where Wiseman excelled in respecting the broad rhythms and pure storytelling of the ring, Chang's new documentary focuses on the stories of three boxers and weaves them into a compelling narrative that rivals anything Hollywood could script.

    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.

    A well-crafted, bravely revealing little film that could be considered essential education for baseball fans. It's just a bonus that the documentary is so entertaining.

    More storytelling and less preaching would have served those messages better.

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

    It's still Black's franchise, though. And part of the problem with this sequel is how little it lets its star just riff with silly abandon, as he did throughout the original.

    Ironically, Born to Be Wild banks solely on its tameness to captivate and inspire, aided by an upbeat, sometimes incongruous soundtrack.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Janice Page
    The cast is up to the challenges of that arc, but the plot doesn't always keep them afloat.

    Miller is certainly faithful to the spirit of Rendell's psychologically probing, class-dissecting novels, even if his probing doesn't go nearly as deep and his storytelling isn't as compelling.

    With more character development this might have been an eerie thriller; with better payoffs, it could have been a thinking man's monster movie.

    Likable performances are critically wounded by implausible scenarios and derivative-minded direction referencing everything from ''Reservoir Dogs'' to ''Fargo.''
    • 71 Metascore

    An invitation to see something a little less pretty, and potentially more enduring.
    • 72 Metascore

    Serves up enough action and passion to stay afloat, but at the end of the day it's just not the perfect ride those earlier films were.
    • 69 Metascore

    Has a sultry and complex psychological intent all its own, yet it's reminiscent of some earlier Denis works, including ''Nenette and Boni.''
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    fully devotes itself to painting a family portrait seldom allowed such rich cinematic detail.

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

    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.

    Roughly translated, Touchez pas au Grisbi means ''don't touch the loot.'' But in literal terms, this film version of Albert Simonin's blockbuster really couldn't care less who ends up with the cash.

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

    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.

    Isn't just a feel-good movie; it's a feel-good-and-righteous movie. And audiences will forgive its flaws.

    Intimidated by the words "avant-garde film"? Then hand yourself over, without reservation, to the skills of documentarian Martina Kudlacek and her astonishingly accessible primer, In the Mirror of Maya Deren.

    May not be as dramatic as Roman Polanski's ''The Pianist,'' but its compassionate spirit soars every bit as high.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Janice Page
    Though it never rises to its full potential as a film, still offers a great deal of insight into the female condition and the timeless danger of emotions repressed.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    The film's unhurried pace is actually one of its strengths. Entirely appropriately, the tale unfolds like a lazy summer afternoon and concludes with the crisp clarity of a fall dawn. That's not just a farm movie, that's life.

    Ladling in so much schmaltz that even his in-house critic says, ''This thing's worse than `Terms of Endearment.'''
