  1. There’s something fundamentally unconvincing and contrived about the story. Forget the fact that O’Connor hauls out every cliché in the bad cop handbook and the dialogue is more boilerplate than hard-boiled. The premise itself is just plain preposterous.
  2. Right out of the gate, we realize that bringing the series to the big screen makes the flaws that much more obvious. The voices are too thin, the music and lyrics too simplistic, and the production values are – frankly – too "televisual."

    This is easily the smallest-scale of the sequels, and it has the feeling of a massively shrunken budget.
  3. Changeling is an almost universally impressive all-around effort, and is the best "dirty underbelly of Los Angeles" movie since "L.A. Confidential."

    The best fairy tales always have so much darkness in them. That's why they resonate so deeply. This is a magnificent film.

    It is a sprawling, ambitious and very long look at so many things, it's almost a miracle he was able to wrap it up in just two hours. And yet, for a film that is principally about death, the conclusion is surprisingly life-affirming, especially coming from Kaufman.

    A visually exhilarating trip through the darker regions of the subconscious.

    W.
    W. is the kind of film that demands discussion and only then can we start to decipher what Stone's intentions are towards our President.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Simple, it is as by-the-books formulaic as can be, and there's not a surprise around that the corner that isn't obvious immediately.
  4. Should have billed itself as a fairy tale, as that’s the only possible way to swallow what Prince-Bythewood and Kidd are feeding us.

    The movie's original moments drown in its overall derivation.

    If FrontRunners doesn't teach you something about politics, at least it will entertain you.
  5. Depressingly inert.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Worth seeing for its solid first two acts, some terrific acting by some favorite character actors, and a several solid spook-show scares.
  6. Even if you already knew the facts, you won’' be able to help but reflect in awe at how much progress in the fight against discrimination has been made on a societal level.

    Excellent directing coupled with a smart script and solid acting make Choose Connor a movie worth your time.
    • 54 Metascore

    In the vast wasteland of romantic comedies, this lovely film defies the tired genre.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're a fan of the early Ritchie comedy-crime thrillers, then this is not only right up your alley, it's a long lost relative returning home.
  7. Packs a full plate of gasps and giggles.

    Isn't nearly as offensive to the senses as I originally thought it would be when first presented with the trailer.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    The able cast can't swim through the muck.
  8. The role is ill-suited for Kinnear's talents. Abraham's pacing is glacial, the cinematography is flat, the score by Jill Savitt is suited better to a supermarket and then there's the fact that the climax can be seen coming a mile away. Maybe the biggest, though, is its failure to play fair with the audience.

    As successful as this family drama is, Demme proves himself to be quite a multitasker. With the skill of an ethnographer and the passion of a sentimentalist, he celebrates the traditions of marriage in a handful of tender set pieces.

    What they produced is something that is true not just to this place or to these people's lives, or to the lives of poor people or black people, but to the experience of being human.
    • 43 Metascore

    In the end, the film isn't a complete waste of your time, and it is a neat little walk down a Patriot Act assisted cyber-terrorist "what if..." scenario, but don't expect anything brilliant.
  9. So think of it this way: Miracle at St. Anna is a Spike Lee joint that possesses a European texture in the vein of Guillermo Del Toro and Jean Pierre-Jeunet. Imaginative, thought-provoking, and intense.

    The film feels flat. I don't know how to express my criticism much more than to say that things unfold before you, but you never really engage in the world beyond just watching it.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Just the type of small film that, if given a chance to be seen by audiences, could become somewhat of a hit for grownups ala "Sideways" or "The Squid and the Whale."
  10. This is what "Nightmare" fans have been waiting fifteen years for.
    • 47 Metascore

    A pretty provocative film, that is until it implodes into standard formulaic Hollywood crap.
