    It's a visually stunning film. For every kid everywhere, and for every adult still a kid at heart, the dinosaurs are the thing, and here, finally, Disney does justice to our dreams.

    Pure unadulterated animal fun.

    It may not be art, but it's vastly more entertaining than anything Coppola senior has done in far too long.

    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's done with such a wonderfully dry style and wit that you don't mind having to stop to catch up now and again.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A disarmingly enjoyable film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Compelling, relentless cinema.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A slam-bang, sci-fi actioner, relentlessly paced and edited, with a pounding soundtrack and some ingenious aliens courtesy of Berni Wrightson and KNB Effects.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Less a film than a lyrical, naturalistic tone poem.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Full of period locations, costumes, and one very clever Lana Turner gag, it's easy to see why Ellroy is so pleased with the film.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Unfamiliar to most these days and it goes without saying that Harris performs a great service in the eyes of history with his film.

    Well worth seeing if you have even the slightest interest in guns and sex and the interplay between the two (and who doesn't?), Burnt Money also has, you'll forgive the pun, style to burn.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Gleefully, goofily over-the-top.
    • 63 Metascore

    Great fun to watch, thoughtful and timely, Thomas in Love is likely to generate some decidedly interesting post-film conversations as well.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Deeply moral, thoughtful, and amiably humorous.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Minus much of the rose-tinted nostalgia his films have occasionally engendered. There is a nostalgic tone to the film, but it's a quiet, subtle one.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's a humorous film, to be sure, but there's also a stringent vein of giddy realism to it.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Above all, it's a satisfying, almost restful work, as welcome in this less-than-thrilling cinematic summer as a cool soak on a hot summer's day.

    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's not perfect -- Thornton's slack-jawed yokel Jacob is played a bit wide of the mark and Fonda continues to irk in some indefinable way -- but it's a revelation for longtime Raimi fans. And it's a hell of a ride too, for both Raimi fans and newcomers alike.

    This is Martin Scorsese, and in the end, it's his town, and his show.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    There's no denying it's a tragic film from start to finish, but equally undeniable is the endless stoicism displayed by the women, and Panahi's crisp, meandering direction.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A remarkable film. From its performances on down to director of photography Roger Deakins' sun-baked, dirty-ochre cinematography, the film is all of a piece.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Bird's grim, picture-perfect direction -- the Sierras are more character than backdrop, and everything else looks like it's already been digested and expelled -- augments what is frankly a small, albeit lusterless, gem of a horror show, for once with as many smarts as body parts.

    The strangest biographical film ever made is also one of the most charming, melancholy and quirkily humorous films of the year.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Although a few bits (the film is done in blackout sketch style) fall flat and a good ten minutes could be shaved off the running time with no visible damage, it's an impressive and irascible debut that rings true even when you're laughing too hard to hear it.

    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A very nasty piece of work, indeed.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Gorgeously lensed and delightfully structured, however, this is, in a word, wonderful.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    The spirited interplay between Goodman and Crystal is both wacky and, dare I say, charming.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Smith's film is a celebration of quirkiness, eccentricity, and certain individuals' tendency to let it all hang out, and damn the consequences.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Far and away the most original thriller to come out of a major studio (in this case Columbia Pictures) in a long while.

    You’ve heard of guerrilla warfare? Buffalo Soldiers is all about guerilla capitalism.
