    An overwrought Taiwanese soaper.

    Think you're depressed now? Wait till you see Aurora Borealis, which spends almost two hours watching Ronald Shorter, a suicidal old man, die.

    It would have been nice to learn as much about Sar the man as about Sar the dancer.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Good-natured, lightweight fun, although clichéd and more suited to DVD and cable than the big screen.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Most of the dialogue is in English, almost all of the story takes place in the U.S., and there is none of the kitschy fun that gives Bollywood flicks their charm.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Filled with nostalgia for old Chinese movies, respectable performances and lively kung-fu slapstick.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film is generic and uninspired, better suited to public TV than the big screen.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    There is also a fair amount of boy-on-boy sex, which would be the main reason for seeing No Regret, no matter what your sexual orientation might be.

    After sitting a while in front of my computer trying to come with the right word to describe the Argentine soaper Family Law, I've settled on "diverting." You will be entertained, but you won't tax your brain.

    At age 76, Chabrol seems to be just going through the motions, but anyone who has helmed 70 films ("Les Bonnes Femmes" and "La Ceremonie," for example) is entitled to an off day. Look for him to dazzle us next time out.

    Mirikitani is a colorful character and talented artist, and his story tugs at the heart. Problem is, Hattendorf insists on inserting herself in what seems like every other scene, a device that dilutes Jimmy's story.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film looks nifty, but the flat and unemotional English-language dialogue lessens its impact.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The charming cast...brightens up the screen, but the TV-sitcom script does them in.
    • 76 Metascore

    Buck is best left to TV, where it will land soon. It's "The Horse Whisperer" that should be seen on the big screen.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    If only its characters weren't such stereotypes.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The plot of Attitude isn't exactly original and won't have you sitting on the edge of your seat. But Nilsson knows how to create a noirish mood, and some of the camera work is interesting, if pretentious.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    There aren't many surprises as the story unfolds in soap-opera fashion, with a happy ending for all concerned.
    • 69 Metascore

    As my cat, Audrey, will confirm, I love animals. But I draw the line at having lions, tigers, gigantic snakes, bears and other predators as pets. Other people have different opinions.

    Offers interesting views of ordinary life in Baghdad that Americans won't find on TV news. But the impact is lessened by the director's failure to let those who think the war is justified have their say.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Too bad the script is predictable at every turn.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Matthews is supposed to be the star here, but it's Englund's hilarious, over-the-top performance that keeps Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, by director Jon Knautz, from becoming another forgettable exercise in horror.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    May be momentarily entertaining, but don't expect anything profound from the lightweight saga.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    An interesting debut for director Pesce, although it isn't worth running out to see. Wait for it to hit the small screen.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    If you're thinking of taking the kids to Bear Cub because the title sounds like something they'd enjoy -- don't!
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The clichéd, heavy-handed script lets them down.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    An uplifting story to be sure, but director-producer David Swajeski doesn't do it justice.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The script is morose and unfocused - not to mention hard to believe and insulting to women.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Director-writer Seth Grossman provides a lazy narrative, with stereotypical characters and plot.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    As a history lesson, Oswald's Ghost is valuable, but don't go expecting any new revelations.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Too many cooks spoil the broth, and too many directors spoil the anthology film Paris Je T'aime.
