    Flight is a so-so movie with Denzel Washington as a commercial-airline pilot who crash-lands a plane while drunk, high, hung over, and horny. It doesn't do much that you couldn't anticipate just by seeing the trailer - the trailer is more exciting than the movie itself.

    It's scant to the point of irrelevance.

    Comes on like an "After School Special'' psychodrama that's been taken off its medication.

    The idea is to share with us that this show happened. But gluttons for these artists and for music festivals in general might wonder, as I have, whether there's any way the filmmakers might share more of the remaining 123 1/2 hours.

    This is a party, and you're either having a good time or wondering when Akin is going to get down to business. But for an hour and a half, fun is the business.

    Like most films about gay men, Undertow can't envision a normal life of couplehood. But Fuentes-Léon works in a blithe and breezy magic-realist manner that fends off attendant feelings of depression.

    Piercingly co-written and directed by Susanne Bier, the movie dramatizes one man's collapse and the other's surprising maturation.

    In the case of Jeremy Irons playing the aloof English billionaire who owns the bank, that's dinner theater. But it's of the highest caliber.

    Enormously enjoyable.

    Every moment... is a cleverly constructed live-action joke on aloofness: The world is ending, and these people are too self-centered to notice.

    It’s as slickly enjoyable as anything you’d see on VH1.

    Crassly funny passages.

    The movie captures a kind of tragedy of self.

    This is the best thing Mortensen's ever done. His slow, paunchy, hairy Freud has a cavalier authority and a capacity for drollery. He's also seductively wise in a way that makes both Fassbender and Knightley, as very good as they are, also seem uncharacteristically callow.

    The result is kitschy entertainment that wants to celebrate Lucas's chutzpah and acumen while loosely condemning what they wrought: "Scarface" with a ghost of a conscience.

    As films about the young and the horny go, I preferred the smarter approach director Jeffrey Blitz takes in "Rocket Science."

    Rothemund gives us his sophisticated filmmaking only in the finale, which is devastating in its briskness and fury.

    It's that rare movie with a sense of timeliness that is eternal, and a protagonist whose soul-crushed angst, even at its most fatal, speaks to the little boy/girl lost in everyone.

    The movies rarely gives us a woman as fascinatingly complex as Lisbeth Salander, and the happiest news about the two sequels is that she’ll be back.

    A further, captivating extension of Oshima's marriage of the oblique and the erotic.

    A collection of beautifully acted encounters, conversations, symbols, and vignettes woven into an evocative and unforgettably surreal garment.

    As wonderful as Testud is, her character doesn't make much sense.

    Part Marxist social drama and part Michael Moore corporation-needling, with fed-up residents trying to outsmart the big, bad naive company to keep their lights on for free.

    There's the air of sadness and worry all over this movie, and sometimes it's heavy. But it's air all the same.

    It just feels like playacting.

    Boy A comes frustratingly close to succeeding as tragedy.

    This intimate, warmly made family portrait always feels true. The performances are particularly good.

    The movie's amateurishly made. But the script is full of little surprises.

    A lovely , old-fashioned farm romance quietly doubling as a comment on immigration and American identity.
