  1. There are no boring, expository sequences; no depressing, grown-up politics. Instead, Rodriguez gifts us with a kaleidoscope of energy and invention.
  2. There are no sacred cows in A Mighty Wind. Even beloved public television is skewered by Guest and Co. In a lot of ways, this movie pokes the most fun at the average PBS liberal who refuses to let go of the 1960s.
  3. Gory, scary, smart and funny, this is definitely one of the best horror films I’ve seen in years.
  4. I loved this film; from the opening “Ben-Hur” nod to the hieroglyph subtitles, it's simultaneously hilarious and poignant, with great performances.

    When you watch Wonderland, going back twenty years plus, you think you're in for some paleontological expedition. Yet, thanks to James Cox's considered and adept direction, a cast and script that never cheats the experience or realism of Hollywood's enigmatic underbelly -- the drama of the 1981 Wonderland murders is de-petrified.
  5. A gorgeous and poetic meditation on fate, honor and life in the Old West.
  6. This is a five star film because it is one of the most perfect science fiction thrillers of all time.
  7. Breathtakingly inventive story.
  8. As he did with “The English Patient,” director Minghella performs a miraculous juggling act, balancing his epic, sweeping story with the subtleties of character and detail that make Cold Mountain breathe.
  9. This extraordinary work of cinematic art is among the most sublime, compelling and beautifully crafted films to grace the big screen.
  10. Music fans of every stripe should kill to see this film, one of the very best music documentaries in recent years.
  11. Truly magnificent.
  12. Does for psychedelics what "Boogie Nights" does for cocaine; displaying in graphical detail the ultimate failure of drugs as an escape route.
  13. This amazing tour-de-force presents Huppert in a role, which is equal parts abrasive and vulnerable, exasperating and pathetic, monstrous and saintly.

    Fresh, heartfelt and ultimately heartbreaking in its honest portrayal of a modern relationship.
    • 71 Metascore

    Compulsory viewing for anyone with the slightest interest in rock history or the power of celebrity.
  14. "Kill Bill Vol. 1" was a pure action movie, in love with collisions of violent movement. “Vol. 2” relaxes the pace, allowing for extended monologues. Those who lamented the first film's lack of wicked word exchanges should delight in Carradine's final soliloquy.

  15. In the end, the greatest achievement of Control Room may be to simply remind us, as Americans, that in this age of mega-corporate U.S. news media there are other perspectives on world events besides those of Fox, CNN, MSNBC-ABCBS and whoever else feeds us our information.
  16. A raw, brutal, hypnotic journey into the world of seven heroin addicts who barely survive on the streets of New York City. It is a film of great sadness and pain.
  17. Bukowski is one of my all time favorite writers and now I have an all new respect for the man thanks to John Dullaghan’s phenomenal film. I’ll be breaking out “Post Office,” “Ham On Rye,” and “Notes of a Dirty Old Man” again very soon.
  18. One of the most effective, intelligent, mature and romantic love stories to come across the screen recently is, of all things, a documentary.
  19. Full force Will Ferrell at his best. And as an added bonus, we all get one of the funniest movies of the year...that is if you don't mind your humor on the rude and crude side.
  20. Rich with wonderful music and images.

    Gozu is a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a cow's head. If you think that this last statement doesn't make any sense, just watch the movie.
  21. Equally charming and addicting all the way through.

    Enough about the CGI tweaking, is this film really Lucas's unloved masterpiece? The film that got lost in the shadow of "American Graffitti" and "Star Wars" while, actually, being a better film?
  22. The results are either darkly comic and tragic, depending on the viewer's mindframe. But McElhinney's route to these results, as with the Bertolucci, is nothing short of stunning.

    Laugh hard, laugh long, but just laugh at true greatness. Parker and Stone have done it again, multiplied millions of times.
    • 56 Metascore

    The actual performances during the film range from excellent to somewhat amateurish, but this amateurism is easily absorbed by the sheer power of the imagery on display.
  23. A powerful film worthy of a truly extraordinary American.
