    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Robert Horton
    Conveys not just a joy in music and The Beatles, but a joy in cinema.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    A magnificent piece of movie-making.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Robert Horton
    Absolutely, see the movie.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Robert Horton
    You'll treasure this movie.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    A smart, engaging movie.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    Doesn't have the purity, the sense of discovery, of the first Toy Story, but it's still an utter delight. Its images and gags keep replaying themselves in the mind well after the film is over.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    It's got both the sweeping spectacle and the keen, tactile sense of human intimacy.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    Movie excitement from beginning to end.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    If it is never really as profound as it seems to think it is, American Beauty is consistently entertaining, and it earns points simply for acknowledging that all may not be perfect in the current boom years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    It's great that this movie exists.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    Furiously uncompromising, and therefore absolutely alive.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    It's like a madly inventive hybrid of "Dr. Strangelove" and "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre."
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    An unleashed Raimi may be a more exciting moviemaker, but there's something to be said for the virtues of a good story well told, which describes A Simple Plan down to its last shivery snowflake.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    One of the best films of the year, a polished, contained piece of provocation.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Robert Horton
    Forman imbues the material with exactly the right dry, satirical flavor, yet this story is still a Frank Capra little-guy-against-the-system picture.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    The Taste of Others takes regular (but not ordinary) people and knocks them out of their usual zones of activity. The resulting collisions leave behind a very pleasing flavor.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Tight and quick-moving, the film scores its points and gets on with it.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Like other aspects of this film, the image may be a little too perfect, a little too careful.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Once again writer-director Cameron Crowe has gotten all the little details just right.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    The bleakness of the material ought to make Ratcatcher a depressing experience, yet Ramsay's power as an image-crafter transforms this grim universe.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    May be Hitchcock on holiday, but that's a perfectly enjoyable vacation.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Bulworth shoots along with great vigor, and its non-politically correct jabs are occasionally exhilarating.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Part of the appeal of John Irving's writing is its sense of bounty, the way the world is offered up as a horn of plenty. The Cider House Rules movie, by contrast, feels narrowed down to small slices of experience.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    A fitting tribute to an era, a writer, and an unapologetic eccentric.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Like it or hate it, Titanic lives and breathes as a piece of pure cinema.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    If it weren't so pushy about selling itself, The Dish might have been a very special movie.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Director Stephen Daldry gets it right.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    There's something thin about the picture-both in its ideas and its visual texture.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    The kind of college movie people will be quoting for years.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    While this movie is no great advance in cinema comedy, it is rewardingly silly.
