    Saw
    May be the best independent horror film to have come out since "The Blair Witch Project." It's certainly better than "Blair Witch", and more fun, more gruesome, and more macabre. In a very delightful way.
  1. This is a family film. There's a great deal of wackiness.

    This immaculate filmmaking creates an engaging documentary that makes you forget that you're missing the energy of a live show because it's a completely cinematic experience with its own special energy.
  2. It's an entirely different animal from Tarkovsky's hypnotic but opaque take, and it's an entirely different animal from most studio product in general -- Soderbergh's Solaris is a gorgeous and deceptively minimalist cinematic tone poem.

    A wonderful film, and one with vast appeal. Giving us everything we have come to expect from our fashion-centered programming and more, we are left with the sense that we have uncovered a mystery.

    The only criticism that seems to merit any real discussion is whether directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino actually did make real grindhouse-style fare. To whit, I can easily say: yes, they not only made two on-point grindhouse films, they did them to painful perfection.

    A brilliantly executed film that, like many real-life family reunions, is alternately painful, funny, and moving.
  3. From the film's opening moments you won't be able to guess where the whole thing ultimately ends up and that's one of the many endearing qualities of Revanche.

    Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is a grinding, nightmarish machine.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not a film for everyone. If you are squeamish about children being placed in danger then do not see this film.
  4. How can such difficult subjects as under-age sexual activity, brutal beatings and murders be presented in a way that doesn't alienate the audience, yet still capture the horror and circumstances in a believable manner? The solution? Assign Kai Pieck to the task.
  5. An effective comedy, an interesting bedtime tale, and one of the greatest date rentals of all time.
  6. Just about the truest and most satisfying screen adaptation most anyone could have ever hoped for.

    If FrontRunners doesn't teach you something about politics, at least it will entertain you.
    • 75 Metascore

    The songs in the film are a blast and John C. Reilly and Woody Harrelson share one of the funniest singing moments onscreen ever.
    • 58 Metascore

    A tale that's so enriching, so heartwarming, so funny, so touching and so breathtaking, you'll wonder why the king of wackiness didn't branch out sooner.
  7. I'll just say to anyone lamenting the state of American cinema since the 1970s, if you're curious where the next generation of auteurs is coming from, look in the art houses and look in The Matrix.

    The photography alone would make this a worthwhile effort, but the drama that unfolds over the two years on tour is equally involving and framed by the interviews with former champions.
  8. This movie doesn’t cop out. It doesn’t go for fake, feel-good warm fuzzies, and it’s not for the faint of heart. Terminator 3 has guts. It has a LOT of guts. And it’s a rare thing for any movie – whether it’s a summer blockbuster or an indie arthouse flick – to have guts.
  9. The smart dialogue doesn't hurt, of course, and perhaps the best work is done by Bird himself, who provides the voice of Edna "E" Mode, superhero fashion designer.
  10. More a celebration of movement and music than a parable for our over-communicative, friend-lite, acquaintance-rich society.

    With a deep understanding of his characters, Green has crafted a film that's devastating and uplifting without sounding a false note.
    • 83 Metascore

    The seemingly total access and seemingly total coverage the film makers enjoy makes us forget at times that this isn't some Hollywood fabrication.

    Like many of Claypools bands, Electric Apricot is bound to be a cult hit. I’m just hoping it will have the chance to play before a bigger audience as I feel the film is just plain hilarious and I was extremely impressed at the way Claypool pulled it all together in his first directorial effort.

    This is a serious look at the corrupting influences of fame, money and entertainment, and what it says about us may be even more damning than what it says about its participants.
  11. The two actors (Hanks/Seymour Hoffman) have terrific chemistry and riff off one another like partners in a veteran comedy team.

    Bell's documentary is an absolute must see for anyone taking part in any kind of debate about steroids.
  12. Soderbergh's film will be remembered less for the (inspired) star casting than for being one expertly made piece of pure, unpretentious popcorn entertainment.

    Trust me, if you have a thirst for a good, dark drama, this one is a big gulp.

    Believe the hype, Knocked Up is one of the funniest films of 2007. It's too early in the year to crown it the supreme funniest title, but save for something so funny your head explodes in the theater, I think it'll take the title by year's end. Seth Rogen, we web slackers salute you!
