    Trekkies is a hilarious work, mining the psychology of the average and not-so-average Trek fan, and coming up with the answers to all your burning questions about the show and its devoted following.

    It's all patently ridiculous, but it's also ridiculously fun.

    Teacher’s Pet feels more like Ren & Stimpy's John Kricfalusi on a mild dose of Prozac, and I mean that in the very best way.

    Although the film tends to suffer from a severe case of overt preachiness in the third reel (shades of James Cameron's "The Abyss"), it's still a wonderfully visual, exciting ride.

    Gorgeously lensed and delightfully structured, however, this is, in a word, wonderful.

    Craven is obviously having a ball here, and it's impossible not to sit back and go grinning into this dark, gory ride.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A countrified, monolithic thing of beauty -- gorgeous to behold despite the fact that its overlong two-hour-and-45-minute running time plays off Redford's weather-beaten golden boy good looks far too often for its own good.

    It's all fab, baby, a kicky, wiggy sequel that scores on all levels, from the sexy to the sublime.

    Is it classic cinema? Perhaps not, but then again, American shores and citizens have never been lacerated by atomic weapons. What do we know?

    Poses a problem for reviewers. The entire story hinges on a plot device that occurs roughly midway through the film and alters everything that has come before. To give away this massive, unavoidable spoiler would be disastrous and unforgivable.

    Absolutely delightful filmmaking, chock-full of gorgeously goofy animation and a storyline that cleverly echoes everything from "Stalag 17" to "Cool Hand Luke."

    Remarkable, melancholy, and ultimately hopeful documentary.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Fraser, Martin, and the rest of the flesh-and-blood characters look like they’re having a ball, which translates instantly to the audience as well.

    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A zippy, energetic, automotive free-for-all, a caper extravaganza minus the bleak overtones that have come to figure in so many 9mm movies these days.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore

    While the story may be a common one (for the action genre, at least), Rodriguez, who wrote, produced, shot and edited the entire film himself, has a uniquely straightforward wit that makes what might otherwise have been just another shoot-'em-up something more than that.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A touching (and at times horrific) -- albeit overlong -- Christ allegory, that scores not so much on the strength of its convictions as it does on the truly remarkable performances it elicits from the cast.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A meticulously-researched chunk of underground Americana that traces the poet's full life from his rather dysfunctional childhood (beneath the hoary shadow of his mentally ill mother) to his meetings and eventual friendships with Kerouac, Burroughs, Neal Cassady and other Beat luminaries. (Review of Original Release)
    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A kicky, knockout thriller that ingeniously taps into the current climate of paranoia surrounding personal privacy in the Information Age.

    In the end, it's a love story after all, but a peculiarly Gallocentric one -- cheap, nasty, but salvageable nonetheless.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It has the resonant feel of myth, buoyed by simultaneously vicious and compassionate performances from the men on both sides of the bars.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Plenty of killings abound, nevertheless the film is a masterful -- albeit warped -- love-story-cum-road-movie that revolves around three of the most invigorating performances of the year.

    A simply flat-out fun film.
    • 79 Metascore

    Mamet's dialogue is still on the mark, rapid-fire, and as cutting as an antique straight razor.

    Unlike anything you've ever seen before, Final Fantasy is, finally, one for the history books, and tremendous fun to boot. It makes Lara Croft look like an old maid.

    The "Citizen Kane" of Oedipal zombie-cannibal-right to death-comedy-love stories... So gleefully over-the-top that it's decidedly hard not to gag while you're laughing yourself incontinent... Sick. Perverse. Brilliant.

    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.

    All of the major players turn in powerhouse performances, and Fishburne nails his best role yet as Furious.

    By the time it's over you find yourself wondering why more films don't have the chutzpah to delve deeper into the battle-weary heart.

    Charmingly subversive animation like this is a rare thing indeed, and the fact that you don't have to be under 10 years of age to thoroughly enjoy Mr. Shrek's wild ride is an added bonus.
