    It is just too bad that this film isn’t as snarky and groundbreaking as it would like you to think it is.
  1. Two things come to mind as you watch the first act of Street Kings, the first is how fresh and exciting the movie would’ve been if it was released in 1984, the second is the question, “James Ellroy wrote that?”
  2. Although it runs 78 minutes, it feels like 78 hours.
  3. Leatherheads is as trifling as Clooney’s second movie (“Good Night and Good Luck”) was significant, but that’s okay. It succeeds where so many other romantic comedies fail because of a superior script and because everyone involved has the good sense not to take themselves too seriously.
  4. There are a handful of intense sequences and a few scenes of squirm-inducing gore in The Ruins, but not much else.
  5. Over all though, this is a first rate caper piece elevated by Caine’s effortlessly elegant portrayal. The movie is wall to wall with pompous, sexist, greedy backstabbers and it’s a hoot to watch Hobbs mop the floor with the lot of them.

    Schwimmer impresses with this film.

    From what I can tell, the film is generally accurate regarding the events of Dec. 8. But I got as much out of it as I did by looking up Chapman on Wikipedia.
  6. Stop-Loss is a bit uneven. Mixed messages abound.

    What's shocking about Superhero Movie is not that it's been advertised to death on Nickelodeon to impressionable children, but that it's a completely on-the-nose satire of "Spider-Man.”
  7. There was a movie called “My Bodyguard” about the new kid in high school who hires the sullen loner to protect him from a bully. That was good. Drillbit Taylor is shit but, hey, I’m in Judd Apatow’s Hollywood.

    The Grand is a fast and furious comedic attack that begs to be seen again. There’s just so much going on, it’s nearly impossible to keep up.
  8. As a guilty pleasure, it’s spectacularly entertaining

    Even if Horton's world can't shine like Whoville, this movie's visuals keeps things vivid, while digital animation is so often crisp, precise, and cold.

    About as bland, predictable, and self-important as you’d expect.

    It’s a shame that this film’s star-studded cast wasn’t able to save the mediocre storyline.
  9. By and large, reviewers have conceded that the picture is exceptionally gripping and suspenseful while deriding its moral subtext as a crock. The only explanation possible for such fuming pettiness, in my opinion, is the fact that Michael Haneke isn’t one of us.

    What chaps my hide more is that I've seen 10,000 BC. I've seen it three times in the last year and a half. Except in the one that I saw, it centered instead on Mayans, was mostly historically accurate, and was called "Apocalypto."
  10. The Bank Job secures the viewer’s attention pretty quickly and does not relinquish that hold for a second.

    Undeniably fun for the kids, though it requires a camp sensibility in its adult audience. But in doing so, it is a warm return to the live-action Disney movies of yesteryear.
  11. Despite the cast's capable portrayals, it's difficult to connect with or care about any of these characters as, one by one, each stabs another in the back.

    Plays like a breeze and ends before we know it. In the current state of cinema, all we can hope for is one like this per year.
  12. The chief triumph here, it seems to me though, is one of style over substance. The disaffected kids who shuffle through its universe have nothing to say, nothing to tell us. I’m not sure the movie has a whole lot more.

    With a deep understanding of his characters, Green has crafted a film that's devastating and uplifting without sounding a false note.
  13. Some might perceive City of Men as a slow film, while others could reasonably argue that Morelli is taking more time to develop characters.

    The movie stylishly portrays the story of the Chicago Seven with archival footage and animated sequences. Without reference to or retrospection from the present, Morgen crafts a film that is as pertinent as ever.

    The falling blade is the only element not missing the mark in this film. I wanted to call for the beheading after Act One, and spare the audience instead.

    An extraordinarily charming movie.
  14. As Ferrell’s films go, Semi-Pro is, honestly, pretty damn boring.

    Dunn does an incredible job of condensing this extremely complex battle into a story that is simple and understandable, as well as extremely compelling.
