    It's actually the surprisingly compelling plot and the often hilarious dialogue that keep you watching this tale of passion and murder in a Samurai militia unit - not the beautiful scenery or the elegant color palette.

    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A unique, priceless portrait of the now legendary leader, and of his beautiful country when it was in the grip of a disastrous civil war.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A beautifully shot, well-acted movie that manages to make a complicated, real-life story without much drama feel like a thriller.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Lighthearted and smart enough to be one of the best Altmanesque ensemble comedies of the last couple of years.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A deeply pleasurable, old-fashioned blood-'n'-guts adventure film.
    • New York Post
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    An elegant, quietly comical but slightly constricted period piece whose stately pace is all but offset by several impressive performances.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A sometimes glorious, sometimes disastrous folly.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A formulaic and predictable movie that combines minimal characterization with some irritating implausibility.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Presents an intelligent, profound and at times heartrending slice of Taiwanese middle-class existence - as seen by characters at different stages of life.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Warm and charming and often witty, it's as good a romantic comedy as has come out for some time, with an endearing, perfectly pitched central performance that's a four-square triumph for Zellweger.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Though On the Run is a welcome reminder that effective thrillers don't have to be noisy or dumb, the film does contain slightly jarring moments of inadvertent humor.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    The most enjoyable western comedy since "Blazing Saddles."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Spectacular special effects and sets.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    If you have the patience, its almost endless silences and extremely slow pacing eventually pay off.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    What makes 8 Mile transcend the formulaic nature of its plot is the way it makes these rap competitions compelling even for those unfamiliar with rap music, and its scrupulous, loving rendition of a grim, wintry Detroit circa 1995.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Though never dull and often visually beautiful, this work of operatic sweep doesn't fulfill its own ambitions.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A beautifully filmed, scrupulously authentic but strangely evasive exercise in combat ultra-realism.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A charming, (mostly) briskly unsentimental love story, written, directed and acted with remarkable assurance.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Rescues a rarely performed tragedy and makes a brilliant case that it is the Shakespeare play for our time.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Much less mawkish and predictable than you might expect.
    • New York Post
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    It's an original, and a gamble, and one of those movies that works better than it should, despite considerable flaws of conception and execution.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Director Alfonso Cuaron ("A Little Princess") gets vivid, convincing performances from a fine cast, and generally keeps things going at a rapid pace.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    The film's tongue is so firmly in cheek that, without being a spoof like "Dragnet" or "The Brady Bunch Movie," it has more in common with the "Austin Powers" films.
    • New York Post
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Although the jokes aren't as consistently funny as those in "Lock, Stock," once again writer-director Ritchie demonstrates a deeply pleasurable combination of verbal flair and visual wit while conveying the genuine, intimidating hardness of the English working class and its love of language.
    • New York Post
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A far more impressive and affecting piece of filmmaking and storytelling than most movies put out by Hollywood this year, and offers, as a bonus, a glimpse into a fascinating, contradictory society.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Part sitcom, part comedy of manners - but it lacks the courage to deal honestly with class and ethnicity.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    An extraordinary documentary about an extraordinary man that brings to urgent life potentially dry questions of American foreign policy in the 1960s.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    It turns into something that is much smarter, and in a gentle, low-key way, tougher and funnier than you expect.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A sophisticated, stylish, fast-moving piece of work.
    • New York Post
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A gorgeously photographed, sun-baked fable.
