    Tom Cruise might have saved his family from apocalypse. But Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have just saved our summer.

    The film itself is also a beautiful work of art, exquisitely framed and precisely envisioned.
    • 67 Metascore

    Weirdly enthralling film.

    Where the average Japanese horror flick is petulant and nasty, Pulse is dolorous, shivery, and surreal.

    A lot of the credit for what's right with 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin goes to the screenplay, which Carell and Apatow wrote. They like these characters and, when it matters, they dare to give them feelings, none truer than Andy's.

    If anyone is capable of pulling off a deviled screwball with cheeky panache, it's de la Iglesia, who's one of the world's great nutty directors yet to find the American following he so richly deserves.

    The violence in the final 45 minutes of Mr. Vengeance is tough to watch.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Entertaining.

    The movie, though, is nonsense. At its most credible, the story evokes fond memories of the adult drug narcs hiding among American high schoolers on ''21 Jump Street."

    Anyone looking for a more practical horror film than ''The Fog" should try The Future of Food.

    Into the Blue is as much a mesmerizing aquatic expedition as it is a reasonably suspenseful action adventure.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A sound piece of profiling that has miles of archival footage of the affable, pop-eyed Langlois enthusing.

    Yes, Younger has made an update of the ''shiksa who changed my life" story in ''Annie Hall." But Prime is missing the psychological acuity and scabrous cultural wit of Woody Allen at his best. These lovers meet standing in line to see Antonioni's ''Blow-Up" and never mention the movie.

    Yet despite the retrospective sensationalism, Lovett's 70-minute documentary is a sobering anti-erotic cautionary tale.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An absorbing piece of investigative journalism.
    • 76 Metascore

    In its seriousness, Syriana has an absorbing, ominous roundness that plays even better with a second viewing.

    It's debatable whether watching Huffman get dressed, take hormones, and learn to use a more feminine diction could sustain an entire movie, but the character is certainly a creation more original than a lot of the film itself.

    When the film ends, we're haunted. We've been driving with a ghost.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A cult classic is born.
    • 52 Metascore

    Director Wayne Wang and his screenwriters sometimes ape ''Pretty Woman." But Latifah's obvious forebear is Pearl Bailey, who was just as regal and straight-up.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Thompson adapted the screenplay from Christianna Brand's "Nurse Matilda" books, and she and director Kirk Jones balance the slapstick and levity with darker enchantments. At its most enjoyable the film feels like Roald Dahl's idea of "Mary Poppins."

    Week in and week out, horror movies cheat us, so it's wonderfully cathartic to watch a bunch of kids cheat death in what turns out to be the best installment yet in the "Final Destination" franchise.

    It's hard to blame Telfair for letting his celebrity go to his head. If I were on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the 12th grade, there'd be no living with me either.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's the most touching love story about tragically separated sexy beasts since "Cold Mountain."
    • 58 Metascore

    It's also the first apocalypse-minded franchise that's earned its downbeat mood. The action, for starters, is post-Cold War, post-Chernobyl, post-perestroika. Darkness is so much a part of the Russian psyche it must be nice to see a local movie try to put its hand toward the Light.

    Rothemund gives us his sophisticated filmmaking only in the finale, which is devastating in its briskness and fury.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    This is a movie about the marriage between sound and image, and the sound is wearing the pants in the relationship.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie brings to mind the more polite parts of "Wedding Crashers." Failure to Launch, while totally exuberant and appealingly made, is not nearly as randy.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A screwball comedy that made me wish I were 13 again, because this is precisely the kind of movie I would have gone nuts for in the ninth grade.

    Like the great Iranian filmmakers, Rasoulof has no use for the artificiality of heightened drama.
