    Director Scott Teems' film is as quiet as untilled soil -- not always a good thing -- but Holbrook has a handle on where to dig.

    This doc, made by Kunstler's daughters Emily and Sarah, doesn't pretend to be unbiased, but it nonetheless has an unblinking view of its subject. They must have learned a thing or two from dad.

    "Parnassus," while not unwatchable, is also an elephantine mess.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Though it takes time to find its courage and heart, Gigante, like its oversized hero, merely has a slow, shy way of doing things.

    Imagine a quietly creepy "X-Men" prequel -- in French -- and you have this odd little parable.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The 6- to 10-year-old audience this movie is aimed at deserved better.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Most of the movie unfolds in such a dull manner.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Regardless of where its stars want to take it, all roads here lead to blandness and inanity.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Wang tracks his guys like the documentarian he is, and if the movie feels a bit canned thanks to Adam Forgash's unoriginal script, classic NYC spots and a big heart make it feel like home.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Engrossing, sad and heartbreaking.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The big problem here is that dark sci-fi satire works best when it aims for several targets. Repo Men aims at corporate greed, which is good, but doesn’t fill in the details.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Informative and flavorful, though lacking in surprise.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Dignity dies a million deaths despite the best intentions.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The earnest attempt at family drama doesn't benefit from the abundance of movie-of-the-week cliches.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Digs up familiar ground without adding any fresh dirt.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    A lot of heart, a jaunty mariachi score and a lush Eisenhower-era look help as the family-friendly story follows the usual sports-drama plays.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Overly analytical, cutesy comedy-drama.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    This is just one nutso, painfully unfunny family flick.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The kids' story gets out of control, but Andie MacDowell is a pleasantly earthy mess as Victor's out-of-it mother, and familiar New York faces (Ann Magnuson, Mark Boone Jr., Richard Edson) lend quirky support as the out-of-it elders.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    This somber but unexceptional drama is luxurious to look at but never gripping.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Proudly matter-of-fact but, sadly, far from gripping.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The movie devolves into a series of clichéd bits, none of which are that funny.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Unabashedly one-sided, this biography of Chávez - and several other Latin American politicians - does raise some valid concerns about what Stone calls the "manipulative power of the media." So it's too bad he's as guilty of partisanship as the right-wing outlets he reviles.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Predators tries to spice up the hunt-or-be-hunted thesis, but from the get-go, director Nimrod Antal's movie has nowhere to run.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The self-conscious poetry and Cruz's diagnosis of bipolar disorder threaten to add too many notes to this quiet drama.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    The eyewitness testimony of dozens of punk-era survivors and hotel denizens has a disorienting effect, and everyone gets sidetracked, though the colorful anecdotes are priceless.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    This National Geographic production mixes two amazing adventures, neither of them quite what you expect.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    His (Bateman) performance is fun. Too bad The Switch is not.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Joe Neumaier
    Noble but dull.
    • 62 Metascore

    Marshall shows off the breathtaking landscape, but with interiors, he populates the ale houses and encampments with cliches - like dueling female warriors, one a mute and the other a white-haired vixen.
