    Moore has marshaled what's on the record and off into a stinging indictment of where we're going. In a multiplex filled with Hollywood cotton candy, we need him more than ever.

    Leave it to a g-rated cartoon to give the live-action epics a lesson in action, fun and bracing originality.

    • 88 Peter Travers
    Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland plumb the violence of the mind with slashing wit and shocking gravity. Happy nightmares.

    • 88 Peter Travers
    Director Tim Burton finally hooks the one that got away: a script that challenges and deepens his visionary talent.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Kidman gives the most emotionally bruising performance of her career in Dogville, a movie that never met a cliche it didn't stomp on.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Throbs with action, suspense and a seductive rhythm all its own.
    • 83 Metascore

    A sequel of twisted thrills and sly surprises.

    You can't shut the door on this spellbinder. It gets into your head.

    In Kill Bill, Tarantino brings delicious sin back to movies -- the thrill you get from something down, dirty and dangerous.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Chases so many ideas that it threatens to spin out of control. But with our multiplexes stuffed with toxic Hollywood formula, it's a gift to find a ballsy movie that thinks it can do anything, and damn near does.

    • 88 Peter Travers
    Fresh comic thinking spices up this smart cookie of a satire from director-writer Paul Weitz (About a Boy). He makes it sexually provocative and subversively hilarious.

    • 88 Peter Travers
    Bird has crafted a film -- one of the year's best -- that doesn't ring cartoonish, it rings true.
    • 79 Metascore

    Scrappy, funny, hot-to-trot biopic.
    • 73 Metascore

    Jamie Foxx gets so far inside the man and his music that he and Ray Charles seem to breathe as one.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    A ruthlessly clever musical, a punchy political parody and the hottest look ever at naked puppets -- the first film, porn included, in which a woody is actually made of wood.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    An emotional powerhouse.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    The ending -- a more devastating surprise than "The Village" could manage -- caps eighty sweat-job minutes of imaginative, jolting suspense.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    If you've forgotten the kick you get from watching a globe-trotting, butt-kicking, whiplash-paced action movie done with humor, style and smarts, take a ride with The Bourne Supremacy.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    No crime film in years boasts a cooler vibe than Michael Mann's dazzling Collateral.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Mike Nichols' haunting, hypnotic Closer vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Glorious entertainment.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Not only is this dazzler by far the best and most thrilling of the three Harry Potter movies to date, it's a film that can stand on its own even if you never heard of author J.K. Rowling and her young wizard hero.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    A mesmerizing look at an asthmatic, rich-boy medical student in the act of discovering his insurgent spirit.
    • 48 Metascore

    A rich blend of humor and heartbreak.

    When it flies, it soars.

    In Washington's haunted eyes, in the stunning cinematography of Roger Deakins (Fargo) that plunges into the mad flare of combat, in the plot that deftly turns a whodunit into a meditation on character and in Zwick's persistent questioning of authority, Courage Under Fire honors its subject and its audience.

    Sleepers, for all the doubts it raises, is the work of a man who speaks for absent friends and "for the children we were." It's his secret heart.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Immensely entertaining and provocative.
