    A disarmingly enjoyable film.

    Like the doomed vessel from which it takes its tale, Cameron's film is a behemoth, svelte, streamlined, and not the least bit ponderous.

    Unfamiliar to most these days and it goes without saying that Harris performs a great service in the eyes of history with his film.

    Hopper, unsurprisingly, devours scenery like he's already dead and loving it, but for once his penchant for overacting is overshadowed by the real stars of Romero's world: They're dead, they're all messed up, but it's great to finally have them back in town.

    With The Guest, Wingard and Barrett have once more upped the ante for the indie horror flick pack.

    Helgeland's film positively seethes with bad vibrations; it's kicky, nasty urban sangfroid with pointy little teeth and a serious case of the angries, an existential hand grenade disguised as a heist film.

    Open Windows has plenty to say about both the death of privacy and the dominion of the always-connected digiverse we now inhabit, and editor Bernat Vilaplana does a remarkable job of keeping the film’s frenetic pace rushing headlong toward an ending that you’ll never see coming.

    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.

    The film’s love for its subjects is mirrored in their passionate frenzy for words, and language – spoken, written, body – in general. Above all, and what sets it apart from other cinematic takes on the Beatified, is how much fun it is. It may end in tears, but then, don’t all great love stories?

    It's a disturbing film on many, many levels, but beautifully shot (by Seamus McGarvey) and shot through with a horrific sense of false hope. The kid is not all right.

    Great fun to watch, thoughtful and timely, Thomas in Love is likely to generate some decidedly interesting post-film conversations as well.
    • 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.

    Based on actual events, this claustrophobic epic is as emotional as they come: a Holocaust story shot through with a layer of darkness both literal and figurative
    • 55 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's not so much the individual storylines that grab you, but Curtis’ unrelenting optimism. In the end, it's nice to know that love, actually, does conquer all.

    The less said about The Ring, the better for you, the sooner-to-be-freaked-out.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    This is a Farrelly film for adults, if not the entire family, and its a charmer, honest both to the nature of the loves we choose in haste, and the fear that makes us so hasty so often.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Scrappy, powerful, and shocking.
    • 66 Metascore

    Reality has overtaken the movies here, which, I suppose, makes T3 all the more cathartically appealing. At least onscreen we have Arnold Schwarzenegger in our corner.
    • 73 Metascore

    With centrifugal force on his side, Spider-Man dips, weaves, and whooshes past, up, and around the camera -- it's a rush, and it plasters a grin on your face even after you've left the theatre.
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A consistently entertaining parody that never once makes you feel like an idiot for laughing out loud at its idiocy.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's all fab, baby, a kicky, wiggy sequel that scores on all levels, from the sexy to the sublime.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Its adult themes of familial separation and societal betrayal are head and shoulders above much of the director’s previous popcorn work -– more hurt, more heart, more unassailable hope.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    What makes The Innkeepers such an unnerving experience isn't the outright horror but rather the lack of it. West mines every single floorboard creek and shadowy corridor for maximum frisson; this film ventures far beyond creepy and into the rarely explored land of genuine, incremental fear.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A pure distillation of the great director's ongoing themes of the frailty of the human psyche and mankind's willful inability to accept the inevitable, whatever that may be.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Mangold, Phoenix, and Witherspoon, all excellent in their roles.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's childhood done just right: part cotton candy angels, part gurning adult frighteners, and all wide-eyed kidhood bravado.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    As atypical a summer film as they come -– no explosions, no car chases, no Arnold -– but immensely more pleasing than films with all three of those summertime staples.
