    The filmmakers were right to believe that a live-action version of this story would have failed to achieve the universality Persepolis does.

    Teaming with Depp, his long-time alter ego, Burton makes Sweeney a smoldering dark pit of fury and hate that consumes itself. With his sturdy acting and surprisingly good voice, Depp is a Sweeney Todd for the ages.

    Downey plays off his own bad-boy image wonderfully. The writers give him great lines to work with and ditto that for his Girl Friday, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, whose own svelte lines cannot be improved on.

    The stroke of genius is, of course, the film's hero -- the big, lovable bear that is the Chinese panda.

    Even a klutz could hardly make a bad movie about these compelling figures. Thankfully though, Guido Santi and Tina Mascara are superb filmmakers, fully alive in their terrific film Chris & Don: A Love Story to all the undercurrents of art, social class, sexual orientation, challenging relationships and, most especially, the touching love story at the heart of their film.

    A biographical documentary doesn't get any better than this.

    Spicing up the entire package is a screenplay by Canet and Philippe Lefebvre that bristles with wit and energy.

    Working with non-pro actors, Hammer pulls authentic performances from the trio that are at times almost too painful to witness.

    In Changeling Eastwood continues to probe uncomfortable subjects to depict the individual and even existential struggle to do what is right.

    The film is superbly crafted, covering huge amounts of time, people and the zeitgeist without a moment of lapsed energy or inattention to detail.

    This is a marvelous family story, tapping into all sorts of childhood dreams and nightmares involving Mommy, monsters and heroic youngsters. Selick's imaginative sets and puppets are in perfect pitch with Gaiman's fantasy.

    This is one helluva good movie that craves the eyeballs of as many American high schoolers as it can possibly get.

    What this strange yet strangely beguiling film does is capture one of pop culture's great entertainers in the feverish grips of pure creativity.

    Salt moves ever forward -- pushing, pushing, pushing its heroine to greater feats every minute. It doesn't stop for martinis, either shaken or stirred, or any other detours. The movie is lean and muscular, looking for action even in situations where a little sleight of hand might have done the trick.

    In a summer of remakes, reboots and sequels comes Inception, easily the most original movie idea in ages.

    "Dream" brings together so much history, sheer adventure and terrifying moments.

    Noir never has been this dark.

    A satisfying comic gem.

    That rare sequel that took its time -- 23 years -- so it not only advances a story but also has something new to say.

    Biutiful has a strong, linear narrative drive. Nevertheless, and most of all, it's a gorgeous, melancholy tone poem about love, fatherhood and guilt.

    The cinematography and editing are as superb as the film's feline stars are photogenic and heroic.

    To call this movie fascinating is akin to calling the Grand Canyon large.

    All the movie's playfulness rubs off on the actors. Scenes crackle with life. The chemistry among all the actors is terrific.

    The best science fiction tells stories about people in extraordinary environments or situations that serve to open up the vast, still largely unexplored terrain of the human heart. Mike Cahill's Another Earth is science fiction at its best.

    The movie gathers momentum with a steady, assured pace, accumulating incidents, characters, secrets and lies until the rush of events is absolutely transfixing. Cinema can sometimes rival the novel in compulsive intensity and Sarah's Key is one such example.

    It's a long movie that feels short: It grabs you in early scenes, intense though low-key before all hell breaks loose, then keeps you riveted to its mostly male characters.

    An eloquently shot and closely observed documentary about a poor family in modern-day Indonesia.

    Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's final film about the West Memphis Three demonstrates how the first two docs played a role in galvanizing national support to free the wrongly convicted men.

    This 3-D Imax film puts you at eye level with awesome creatures that look like alien beasts from deep space.

    Hits on all cylinders -- a smart blend of acting, direction, editing, design, costumes and effects.
