  1. One warning however: James Caan's shoulder hair, when seen on this size screen, may frighten children considerably (you'll at least want to discuss it openly after the show, answering any questions your kids may have in an honest and direct manner).

    The action scenes are exciting, the fantasy scenes are creative and the war scenes are brutal.
  2. The first masterwork of the post-modern pop culture generation...gets better with every viewing, and like good rock n' roll, needs to be played loud!

    Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is a grinding, nightmarish machine.
  3. A thoroughly enjoyable film, and ranks with Pixar's best.

    Alexander Payne is becoming one of the greatest American directors of modern cinema and again, Sideways is on its way to being one of the best films of the year.

    Schnabel's film is so steeped in the visual that it is surely the purest of cinema.
    • 92 Metascore

    Masculine, Feminine could be viewed as Godard's reaction to his own success and the state of the world around him.

    This may be an extremely bold statement to make, but there hasn’t been such an amazing character study in film since “Citizen Kane.” I honestly can’t praise it enough. From the opening to the ghastly ending, this film will sit in the depths of your stomach for some time to come.

    This is quite possibly the best Canadian film of all time.
  4. Breathtakingly inventive story.

    There will definitely be a need to see it again after the first time, for the atmosphere, for Hoyle, for the theories, for the case, for everything offered and happily accepted.

    A return to form for the Coen Brothers and, while I feel the film will annoy and frustrate the masses, it will be looked back upon as one of the truly great movies of the first part of this new decade.
  5. 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.

    Though it has many moments of sarcasm and humor, the overall tone, like the comics themselves, is a depressing one.
  6. You’re unlikely to come across a more powerful film this year.
  7. Whereas "Cuckoo’s Nest" is a brilliantly over-the-top accomplishment, The Passenger is more brilliant with the most effortless underplaying one can ever hope to witness on screen.

    von Donnersmarck creates a milieu so realistic that the attention-worthy setting becomes just a backdrop, while an intricate tale, as suspenseful as it is humanistic, takes over.
  8. Quite simply, House of Flying Daggers is a film that sets several new standards for production and entertainment values. It is a wild riot of color, music, passion, action, mystery, pure old-fashioned thrills and even dancing.
  9. Borat isn't just one of the funniest movies of the year, it might be one of the funniest movies of all time.
  10. No End In Sight is the most important film of the year thus far and, more significantly, the most comprehensive, clear-eyed account of the Iraq debacle and the arrogance behind it that we have.

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

    One of the most beautifully stark, yet provocative and powerful films of 2005 has to be Capote. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who gives his finest screen performance to date, literally becomes Truman Capote through effete mannerism, nasaly voice & self-absorbed tone.
  11. There’s no question here that moviegoers will be treated to a completely enveloping, three-hour vacation from reality.
  12. Maybe if PETA tried being funny instead of comparing eating meat to the Holocaust, they’d have a bigger following.
  13. To me, Say Anything is without a shadow of a doubt the most rewarding, funny, and likable romance of the last twenty years. It heralds the decency of romantic love against the gears of a cold, grinding mechanical world.
  14. Eastwood tells the story at a pace well under the Hollywood speed limit, tosses in details so beguiling they seem about to sprout into motion pictures of their own and bathes his subjects in shadows as lovely as those in any Rembrandt.

    Imagination spills across the screen in a bold, undeniable presence.

    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!
  15. Rich with wonderful music and images.
