    Such astounding computer-generated effects you'll suspend disbelief and root for the hero, a 3-inch talking mouse.

    That still makes Broken Embraces superior to at least 99 percent of the movies released in 2009. Run, don't walk.

    Splendidly spectacular, intelligent and very well-acted.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Quite unlike anything I've ever seen before.

    ParaNorman is probably the year's most visually dazzling movie so far, and the stunning climax centering on an 11-year-old witch (Jodelle Ferland) is too good to spoil.

    Winslet (Mendes' wife) once again demonstrates why she's one of the best actresses working today.

    You might not want to watch all of "The ABC of Love and Sex Australian Style," "Turkey Shoot" or "The True Story of Eskimo Nell," but the clips on view in "Not Quite Hollywood" are a hoot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The kind of stand-up-and-cheer movie Hollywood is supposed to have forgotten how to make.
    • New York Post
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Smart, funny and ingeniously detailed with terrific vocal teamwork.

    As Kym, Hathaway runs an astonishing gamut of emotions, from anger to fragility and from hurt to regret - without ever seeming actress-y, like Nicole Kidman. Start clearing that mantelpiece, Anne.

    Like the Master of Suspense's best films, Double Take (which makes great use of Bernard Herrmann's haunting "Psycho" score) is an intellectual puzzle that also works as a thoroughly accessible entertainment.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Gut-bustingly funny.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The most delightful family movie since "Stuart Little."
    • New York Post
    • 84 Metascore

    It’s a remarkable story, vividly and urgently told by French-Canadian director Vallée (“The Young Victoria”) from a pointed, schmaltz-free script by Craig Borten and Melissa Wallack.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    It's as purely entertaining as it is thought-provoking and timely.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Arguably the year's most entertaining art-house film.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Strictly a love it-or-hate-it proposition, it requires viewers to work at a movie with a narrative that could support at least half a dozen interpretations.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A remarkable, eye-popping nature documentary.

    The time passes quickly. This is the rare remake that does honor to the spirit of the original.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Forget those weepie liberal clichés. This starless and vividly authentic romantic thriller set in Central America really rocks, and is one of the most exciting directorial debuts in years.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Slowly builds power to devastating effect.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    It’s perhaps the most incisive and funniest Hollywood take on Broadway since Mel Brook’s original “The Producers.”
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A remarkably assured feature debut by Bennett Miller, a longtime director of commercials (and the documentary "The Cruise") whose no-frills style trusts that the powerful material and the uniformly excellent performances need little embellishment.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Phoebe in Wonderland happens to be at least partly a Lifetime movie, but this special little film is no disease-of-the-week tear-jerker.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Tim Burton's best film in years.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Combines big laughs, a big heart and thoroughly winning characters to become the first big surprise of the fall season.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A technological landmark that couldn't look or sound better.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Clooney, who gained 35 pounds for the role, gives a self-effacing but highly effective performance.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    This movie belongs to its young stars, who have grown immensely as actors since they were first ideally cast by Chris Columbus, the hack who directed the first two movies.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The first filmed Shakespeare comedy in decades that’s actually funny.
