  1. Tim Burton, plus Alice, plus 3D equals an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind movie experience. It will clean up.
  2. A timely and timeless look at the intersecting lives, fortunes and fates of Jews, Christians and Muslims in the fragile Ajami neighborhood of Jaffa, Israel.
  3. That tension between silly comedy and poignant drama could have been dicey, but Stebbings and Harrelson maintain just the right balance between the two.
  4. The exquisite art and fairytale ambience will win over animation fans and children alike.
  5. An exciting, fun and sensationally entertaining movie for everyone.
  6. It is a crackerjack thriller and a sensational calling card for the brothers Edgerton.
  7. Campanella has laced his story with twists and turns worthy of Hitchcock and the framing device of the novel (which forces the protagonist to sort out the whole thing through writing) is ingenious.
  8. Hilarious and heartfelt from start to finish, this is the best Shrek of them all, and that's no fairy tale.
  9. Winter's Bone so far past any notion of formula or precedent that comparison is a futile exercise. This film is a thing all its own.
  10. The filmmakers have created a wrenching piece of work that allows the viewer to draw his own conclusions-and should make anyone of whatever political persuasion think about exactly what they mean when claiming to "support the troops."
  11. A rousingly funny, heartfelt and imaginative 'toon blessed with the vocal talents of Steve Carell and loaded with whimsy and smarts.
  12. Will appeal strongly to a mature audience drawn to robust characters, dry wit, and great performances.
  13. The performances are spot on and so is the film's ever growing sense of horror.
  14. This is a beautifully crafted and special movie to cherish, one likely to stay with you long after most of the so-called summer blockbusters have faded into memory.
  15. This could have been a slick little thriller. Instead, it evolves into the unfolding of an epic tragedy.
  16. If "Heat" and "The Departed" had a baby, the result might come close to The Town, a riveting and explosive crime thriller and one of the year's best pictures.
  17. The drama boasts a stellar cast, exquisite performances and a tense atmosphere. It is a film that the author's fans and lovers of mature, measured storytelling will embrace.
  18. Smartly emphasizing Portis' quirky dialogue and dark comic tone, the Coens show the flare that made them famous.
  19. It's an unforgettable, moving and brilliantly acted drama that richly deserves to be seen by anyone who cherishes great filmmaking.
  20. The film might have ended at its action-packed and ultimately moving climax, but screenwriter Steve Kloves goes one step farther. He finds the perfect cliffhanger, one that emphasizes just how dangerous young Mr. Potter's situation really is and definitely leaves the audience anxious for the next chapter.
  21. While the film is likely to find outright rejection among those who remain jittery with each turn in the War Against Terror, it should find a warm reception with fans of dark, outrageous humor.
  22. Biutiful, which gets it name from a child's misspelling of the word, is in itself a beautiful, mesmerizing film and Iñárritu's masterpiece.
  23. A grueling, stunningly photographed story.
  24. The film is masterfully directed by Xavier Beauvois who co-wrote the screenplay. At Cannes, Of Gods and Men received the runner-up Grand Prix. It's also France's selection for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
  25. Stylish and funny.
  26. Wonderfully animated, witty and wildly imaginative.
  27. Rio
    Rio is the biggest and brightest animated triumph since "Toy Story 3."
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A breakthrough comedy, a four-square piece of populist fun that ranks as quite possibly the best mainstream American comedy in years-at least since "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."
  28. Stake Land is the movie "The Road" should have been.
  29. Woody Allen's time-travelling comedy Midnight In Paris is a valentine to Paris and an absolute delight.
