    • 80 Scott Foundas
    A superior piece of Texas pulp fiction that starts out like a house on fire, sags a bit in the middle, then rallies for an exuberantly bloody finish.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Scott Foundas
    A bluntly powerful provocation that begins as a kind of tabloid melodrama and gradually evolves into a fraught study of addiction, narcissism and the lava flow of capitalist privilege.
    • 64 Metascore

    Michod’s sophomore feature isn’t exactly something we’ve never seen before, but it has a desolate beauty all its own, and a career-redefining performance by Robert Pattinson that reveals untold depths of sensitivity and feeling in the erstwhile “Twilight” star.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Scott Foundas
    A minor-key but eminently enjoyable work by a master craftsman.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Scott Foundas
    22 Jump Street hits far more often than it misses, and even when it misses by a mile, the effort is so delightfully zany that it’s hard not to give Lord and Miller an “A” for effort.

    "Whitey” emerges as yet another of Berlinger’s gripping, irony-laced snapshots of the American criminal justice system, in which his eponymous subject comes across as an incontestable monster who may, nevertheless, also be an unwitting patsy.

    Whenever Firth and Stone are onscreen together, the movie sings; the rest of the time it’s never less than a breezy divertissement.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    The Berlin File keeps narrative coherence far down on a priority list that privileges expertly choreographed hand-to-hand combat, hair-raising stunt work...and such familiar genre accoutrements as secret rooms hidden behind bookshelves, shiny metallic attaché cases, and pens concealing fast-acting vials of poison.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Jaglom's quickest and funniest picture in years and the most accessible.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    The happiest marriage yet of the disparate propagandistic and narrative influences inherent in the subgenre of "religious" cinema.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    The most affable and endearing of the recent wave of films about Indian immigrants assimilating in the West.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Fine new chapter in the long-running franchise should score well with family audiences.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    As a spy pic, it has more pizzazz than the last few Bond adventures, "The Sum of All Fears" or "The Recruit."
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Jokes about impotence, menopause and other middle-aged maladies reside where a screenplay ought to live.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Inoffensive adolescent escapism laced with surprising amounts of genuine charm.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Moves along at a clip and provides a terrific action lead for Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Not as insightful as "Topsy-Turvy" or "Vanya on 42nd Street" about the process of putting on a show, it's nonetheless a fascinating meeting of the minds -- between iconic New York indie filmmaker Michael Almereyda and laconic American cowboy and dramatist Shepard.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Sublimely trashy, this conceptual sequel to 1997's surprise hit, "Anaconda," doesn't expect to be taken any more seriously than its schlock predecessor, and keeps its tongue-in-cheek thrills flowing rapidly.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Largely plays down the ethnic stereotyping to deliver a carefully observed, fundamentally human roundelay about the wonders and horrors of looking for someone to love.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Ultimately something of a softball satire, its climactic evocation of the "true meaning" of the holidays is surprisingly touching.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Snicket's macabre tale of three newly orphaned siblings has been lavishly visualized. But for all its elaborate splendor, production pic lacks the feeling and imagination that have distinguished the best recent kidpics.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    The genocide of some one million Rwandan Tutsis by their Hutu neighbors remains a disgraceful and too-little-known episode in recent world history. Alas, Terry George's ineffectual Hotel Rwanda only partly rectifies that problem, taking what ought to have been a complex, powerful inquiry and simplifying it to a story about the resilience of the human spirit.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    May not be a complete success, but it is in some ways that rarest of commodities in American movies: It is a movie about sex and sexuality, in its many perversions and permutations, done without falling back on an exploitatively comic or violent scenario.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Looks with fresh eyes at a new millennium in which, seemingly, the entire world is bought and sold in neatly wrapped packages engineered for mass consumption.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Like a really, really high-tech version of a high school class trip to the planetarium.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    A noteworthy piece on a difficult subject.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    An immensely likable, funny comedy that finds a novel approach to that familiar combo of kids and sports.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Brings a fresh perspective to age-old human dilemmas.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Scott Foundas
    Has a relaxed poeticism to it; it's a sweetly naive, adolescent Hemingway fantasy with a star-making performance by Shawn Hatosy and good ones from everyone else (including Caan).

    G
    A handsome, compelling drama, about the African-American elite settling in the Hamptons, that more than stands on its own.
