  1. While the audience has its laughs along the way, the violent tension of war often threatens to erupt, and slowly, subtly gathering force is the film's emotional weight, which is potently felt by the film's indelible (if not exactly unexpected) concluding image.

    Does the world need another Holocaust film? When the director is Roman Polanski, the answer is an unequivocal “yes."
  2. I loved it. I'm glad it was made...Film Threat's association with Flynt would sometimes bring gasps of outrage or phones slammed down in disgust. Now, it brings curiosity and even admiration. Kinda weird, huh?

    A black-humored, unflinching look at the Ugly American at his psychotic worst. And Tobe Hooper is at his best as a writer and director here.
  3. They should have produced this in 3D for IMAX as Metropolis is the kind of work destined to blow the minds of stoners everywhere.
  4. Sean Penn's scenes are still so stunning...His Jeff Spicoli is an unabashed kick every second he is on the screen.
  5. This is John Hughes' best teen film, and it's a call to arms to everyone in the world who doesn't want to follow society's lame-ass rules at the expense of living a cool life.

    Shyamalan’s film blends together elements of humanity, faith, drama, tears, tension, terror, humour and the supernatural and succeeds in being one of the sharpest and most exciting films of the year.
  6. The result is stunning -- both as a narrative film and as a document of the place and time.
  7. Rare vehicle which gives the Palestinian people (rather than their failed, double-talking leadership) an opportunity to speak freely and openly, and that feat in itself makes this one of the most important documentaries of recent times.
  8. This well made, slightly cornball and riotously comical romantic comedy not only extols the old fashioned American dream, but charmingly celebrates the virtues of the great American melting pot as well.

    Max
    Immerse yourself in two fantastic performers, a polished narrative (by Menno Meyjes) and a “could have happened” scenario. It plays all too real if you ask me.
  9. As much fun as I had with this film, and many others will have with it for years to come, Citizen Toxie is definitely an acquired taste.
  10. Exciting, but not completely original.
  11. This musical epic is unlike anything I (or anyone I know) have ever laid eyes on.

    Scene after scene blends masterfully with the work of Ohwon’s paint brush, and the power of images and symbols reveal not only a great artist, but also a pivotal era in Korean history.

    Jesus Nebot pulls off the impossible task of not only being the writer, director, producer, and star of the film No Turning Back, but makes it all work into a satisfying and socially conscious film as well.
  12. Stiller is laugh-out-loud funny from start to finish and anyone that may quibble about plot minutiae, is just not ready to have a good time.
  13. Brilliantly scripted and full of a virtual Who's Who of familiar faces, The Big Lebowski is yet another golden hunk of totally unique celluloid from the versatile Brothers Cohen.
  14. Unfortunately, this horror gem won't even receive the same fate as a crappy "Children of the Corn" sequel, that of ending up on the back shelf of the local Blockbuster. This all but guarantees, that some kid won't accidentally come upon it and scare the crap out of himself. And that's just sad.
  15. For the most part, the film is brilliant.
  16. As always, Don Cheadle is fantastic, but the film belongs to Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    The real-deal, packed with more excitement, vigor and fortitude than an unfaltering Magnum.
  17. After half a century, does the story hold up? Eh, pretty much. In the end, the story doesn't really matter that much as this is really a vehicle for the amazing visuals.

    Dark, disturbing and original throughout. You know that you’re going to see something a little different than your usual studio crap.
  18. Rodriguez knows kids. No doubt kids will be clamoring to get acquainted with Spy Kids 2, the best sequel to emerge from a children’s franchise in the past several years.

    Not only the best I've ever seen, but also the Indian film that'd be most accessible to a Western audience.
    • 64 Metascore

    So immodestly unripe; yet so horrendously tempting you’ll find it hard to resist.
  19. We have an authentic Old Master working in our midst, and Gosford Park will at the very least remind everyone how masterful a helmsman Altman can be.
  20. A powerful no-frills drama. It's a film that never flinches from its colorful, if sometimes cruel namesake neighborhood and the people who populate it.
