    Significantly cleverer than its moniker, even though it picks for its satire one of the most inviting targets on record: the world of contemporary art.

    Laggies doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it puts an engaging spin on the old canard about high school being the best years of our lives.

    Overall, Luther does a satisfying job of restoring humanity to a woodcut icon.

    This 90-minute exploration of the myriad ways Lego is great suffers from a relentlessly annoying narrator and a punishingly peppy tone. Still, if you're an AFOL—that is, an Adult Fan of Lego — or even a KFOL — you can figure that one out, right?—there's plenty to make it worth your while. If you're not, don't bother.

    Remarkable, unheralded story.

    A sometimes very funny movie made by very funny people.

    An enjoyable sojourn into the world of Dickens and could inspire a trend. Shakespeare and Austen have had their Hollywood moments during the past few years; why not the proto-Hollywood Dickens?

    Giamatti, in fact, makes off with a few scenes as the literally mustache-twirling antagonist, providing some welcome moments of over-the-top levity.

    There will always be plenty of fictional geniuses solving impossible crimes, but Holmes, it turns out, it where the heart is.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    A mordant, almost-too-dark comedy, but a comedy nonetheless.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    It's visually appealing, but embodies the movie's (and Frances') problem: wanting to be taken seriously without putting in the real work required to prove you're actually serious.

    Zach Braff has come up with a charming, funny, melancholy ode to twentysomething angst.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    The film paints a by now familiar picture of suburbia as a pit of dysfunction, though some nice dark-humored moments and generally fine performances make up for a lot.

    Bottle Shock never quite connects. And considering the more recent transformation of Napa, the movie's triumphant ending rings a bit false.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    The movie is well-crafted and finely acted (including by the non-actors László and András Gyémánt as the creepy, affectless twins), but it never comes up with a new way to communicate its sadly familiar themes.

    Overall, the trip successfully embodies the spirit of the original Magic Bus man, Ken Kesey, whom these modern-day pranksters visit in a poignant scene filmed just months before his death.

    Some of the dwarves have nice individual moments, namely Balin (Ken Stott), Bofur (James Nesbitt), and Kili (Aidan Turner), and Gandalf gets to throw some potent magic around at Dol Guldur. But other than that (and the dragon itself), The Desolation of Smaug turns to be more of too much of a good thing.

    The movie is simple fun.
    • 58 Metascore

    Lyrical and gorgeous, it indulges in enough trademark Malickian touches to seem almost a parody of itself.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    A solid, twisting, well-acted mystery, but it strains credulity at times, and its ultimate revelations are unsurprising and, when you think back on the whole film, confusing. It also lacks a distinctive atmosphere, shot in an almost TV-style flatness.

    As is, it's a pleasant but unremarkable retelling of a story as old as the Dead Sea itself.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    Like last year’s vaguely similar “Killing Them Softly,” “Furnace” reeks of '70s-inspired, downbeat, politically conscious genre filmmaking. And its cast is composed of hard-working, seemingly omnipresent actors who understand what Cooper’s after.

    For those to whom life is but a stage, this will be sweet, sweet candy; to those of us destined to be their audience, it's a satisfying, if flawed, look behind the curtain.

    Caro stumbles in a couple ways. By flashing forward throughout the film to scenes of the climactic courtroom showdown, she blunts the story's dramatic impact.

    They could have made a harder-hitting, more realistic film, but then no one would have gone to see it.

    It's not a question of Lucas' right to revamp his own work -- the movie simply was much better without these absurd additions.

    This gritty take on Grimm's suffers from mannered supporting performances and an inconsistent level of realism.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    The result is an uneasy mix of social-issue realism and escapist excitement that's ultimately disposable.

    Some of the combat scenes work, including a kitchen-set hand-to-hand battle that's one of the movie's highlights, but more often they feel superfluous at best.
    • 61 Metascore

    The good news is that this movie is no "Spanglish;" the bad news is that Sandler's performance is actually better than the material deserves.
