    Precious without ever being cloying, All the Real Girls is a wise, delicate and immensely touching romance.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A sparkling exercise in movie cool.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Occasionally feels a bit suffocating, like being trapped at a party by a drunkard who won't shut up until he tells you his entire life story.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    It is as emotionally raw and wrenching as life itself.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    This is a thriller that embraces stillness and silence where others prefer noise and bombast. It thrives on the hush before the explosion instead of its aftermath, and it's that eerie sense of expectation that gives the film its thick aura of suspense.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A fascinating record of how the movie fell apart, piece by piece, with everything short of a natural disaster conspiring against the filmmaker.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Loses its nerve in the final minutes, relying on a series of contrivances to arrive at an unconvincingly pat, happy ending. The story begged for a darker, more biting resolution.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    For those with the patience to latch onto Van Sant's slow, methodical groove. It's worth trying.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Celebrates a larger-than-life heroism that is, sadly, all too rare.

    If Treasure Planet falls short of "Lion King's" classic status, it still proves there is plenty of room in animation for movies that aren't geared exclusively to 8-year-olds.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie asks tough, unflinching questions about America's responsibility to maintain world peace -- and the price we are willing to pay in order to accomplish that. Timely stuff, indeed.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Nothing fantastic or supernatural ever happens, but you can still feel cosmic forces at work behind the scenes, conspiring to repeatedly test the movie's characters, doling out reward and punishment in equal doses.

    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Might have been unbearable if Linklater hadn't filled it with so much self-deprecating humor, undercutting the pretentiousness whenever it threatens to become too thick.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    This is a rare breed of crowd-pleaser: a big-hearted, generous movie that never patronizes the audience.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A very engrossing movie, the kind that gives shameless manipulation a good name.
    • Miami Herald
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The package is perfectly irresistible.
    • Miami Herald
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    More sour than sweet, but Steers knows that, even in a cruel, unsentimental world, there is room for forgiveness and hope. Just don't expect a hug.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An uncommonly playful fright machine -- a fun house factory of scares.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Only a very stony heart could resist its pull.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Shows Jerry Seinfeld as you've never seen him before: being unfunny.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The world's newfound familiarity with the region's troubles only make Kandahar more compelling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Has the feverish intensity of a bad dream, leavened with a subversive sense of humor that is both sophisticated and cracked.
    • Miami Herald
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    In The Shape of Things, love doesn't just hurt: It bites, and bites deep.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Frida, the kaleidoscopic drama based on the life of the Mexican painter/feminist/icon Frida Kahlo, was directed by Julie Taymor, which is the movie's first blessing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    If Heaven doesn't quite achieve the transcendent power that Kieslowski might have attained, it comes close. One shot in particular, with the couple making love under a tree in silhouette, is a thing of quiet, sublime beauty that is eloquent in a way words never could be.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An uncommonly perceptive and finely shaded character drama.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is so cheerfully, furiously relentless, its contagious silliness wears you down.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Never crosses over into meanness, and even the most satirical character has a moment of empathy.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Watching this essentially good but misguided kid slide into a hopeless future is both transfixing and heartbreaking.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Even if the movie loses its nerve at the end, that doesn't take anything away from Washington's performance.
