    Technically superb and witty in an old-fashioned, veddy British way that will delight many adults but will sail over the heads of young audiences.

    Toy Story 2 is to "Toy Story" what "The Empire Strikes Back" was to its predecessor, a richer, more satisfying film in every respect.

    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A riveting, thematically probing, richly atmospheric and just occasionally troublesome work, a deeply inquisitive consideration of the extent of trust and mutual knowledge possible between a man and a woman.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Taking advantage of a splendid cast, a sharply focused script and the fresh English setting, "Gosford Park" emerges as one of the most satisfying of Robert Altman's numerous ensemble pictures.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    An intensely imaginative piece of conceptual filmmaking that also delivers the goods as a dread-drenched horror movie.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    The script is faithful, the actors are just right, the sets, costumes, makeup and effects match and sometimes exceed anything one could imagine.

    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    The rough power, as well as the humor and sensitivity, of pop phenom Eminem is delivered intact in 8 Mile.

    George Lucas has reached deep into the trove of his self-generated mythological world to produce a grand entertainment that offers a satisfying balance among the series' epic, narrative, technological and emotional qualities.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Delivers enough thrills, kicks and cool moments to satiate geeks, fans and mere general viewers worldwide -- until the "Revolutions" installment wraps up the trilogy in November.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    This is not "E.T.," nor is it a kid's film nor even necessarily a major mass-audience film, although Spielberg's name, high public anticipation and the child-oriented campaign will make it perform like one.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A first-rate thriller with grit and intrigue to spare.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Looks to please the book's legions of fans with its imaginatively scrupulous rendering of the tome's characters and worlds on the screen, as well as the uninitiated with its uninterrupted flow of incident and spectacle.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Gripping, highly dramatic thriller that more than confirms the distinctive talent of young Brit helmer Christopher Nolan.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Wickedly funny.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Truly beguiling romantic comedy.

    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A script as fresh and distinctive as any produced in the States in recent memory.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Brilliance of the action and effects are supplemented by a consistently superior and resourceful score by Tan Dun.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Entirely unpredictable and marked by audacious strokes of directorial bravado.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    All but stealing the film is Cooper, who seizes a rare opportunity as an extroverted, rather than buttoned-up, character to bust loose like an uncaged alligator.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A seductively structured and superbly acted suspenser that breathtakingly piles swindle upon scam without giving away the game until the very end.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Bears all the earmarks of a magnum opus for Martin Scorsese: Fascinating and fresh material about his beloved New York City, an epic reach, an equally epic gestation period, a dynamic criminal element, combustible socio-political-religious elements, outstanding actors and sophisticated allusions to cinema history that inform and enrich the experience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Audiences will be excused for any feelings of déjà vu the new film might inspire. That won't prevent them from watching it in rapt, anxious silence, however, as the gruesome crimes, twisted psychology and deterministic dread that lie at the heart of Harris' work are laid out with care and skill.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    T3 delivers the goods. A hard-hitting, straight-ahead sci-fi actioner with none of the pretentions and ponderousness that have put at least a portion of the public off of "The Matrix Reloaded" and "Hulk."
