  1. Patric and Liotta are as tense and great as they've ever been.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wonderfully effective, funny and yet horrific film.
  2. A gripping experience, and often downright sickening.
  3. Lee gives us cross-section of characters, almost none of whom escape the summer unchanged.

    This film takes chances and is abundant with style, seeming to pick-up where "Brown Sugar" left off, introducing editing conventions not normally accustomed to African-American film.
  4. Clones is not a good movie -- but it is an incredibly awesome Star Wars movie! This is far from a perfect film, but the problems are almost dismissable based on the final result.
  5. So well is this film made, written and acted that you’d have to be a pretty big hard ass not to get pulled into the hilarious and even touching exploits of Alan and Tommy as their lives take the most unpredictable of turns. Try it, you’ll like it!

    Not unlike its predecessor -– might be hard to swallow, but it’s so delicious you just can’t help but want more. Not unlike one of those gobstoppers you can find in any candy store -- Hard to chew, nice to endure, if you will.
  6. It feels strangely slight for Almodovar, but there's a richness that draws us in -- There's so much going on beneath the surface that you can hardly take it all in.
  7. As a piece of acting, The Quiet American represents a fitting capper to Caine’s illustrious career; his portrait of a jaded sybarite whom history nudges into conscientious action is among the year’s most moving.

    A fun time and a must-see.
  8. One of those guilty pleasures of the summer. It’s also one of those action movies that could have been ruined if Jerry Bruckheimer had taken charge of it.
  9. Probably the best comment I could give it is that after sitting through the first two and 1/2 hours, I would have happily sat through another five. How long am I going to have to wait for that DVD Box Set?
  10. A very scary film, well made and lovingly dark, and it illustrates how terrified we are of becoming the victims we see on TV.
    • 57 Metascore

    The film has a wonderful style and a sense of movement that barely slows down for its two and a half hours.
  11. For those who appreciate movies that capture almost every emotion -- from laughter to tears, suspense to tranquillity -- The Majestic was made for you.
  12. May
    Call it a horror movie, a psychological thriller or a feminist splatterfest, but this sort of story is tough to get right. May gets it more than right.
  13. Worthy of attention. Susman has put together a well-crafted, witty commentary on corporate culture and the deals all of us make with ourselves to come to terms with modern existence.
  14. This could have been an unmitigated disaster, but Hughes' way with the material ensured it a special place in the heart of just about everyone who happened to be in high school while Ronald Reagan was President.
  15. This is a very simple story, but it builds beautifully to an endearing and witty romance.
  16. Will Ferrell is a fearless comedian, and he commits completely to his insanity in the film, and that makes it work.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    For those who find that most “life-affirming’ films leave them nauseous and sometimes angry, Man on the Train is a miracle of genuine uplift working with two characters probably fated to die.
  17. What ultimately comes through is an undeniably imaginative work that is a glorious testament to the limitless and largely untapped possibilities of cinema.
  18. I find Soderbergh's Solaris an eminently more satisfying experience than Lem's. This is a film as elegantly directed as any by Kubrick, one which is superbly acted and brilliantly scored, as spellbinding a work of cinema as we're likely to see for some time.

    It works because of Anderson's ability to challenge viewer expectations. Instead of making his principal actors change, he manipulates the story and dialogue to match their characters. His exquisite art-house camera shots and sense of pacing set Sandler up to do his usual thing in an almost poetic manner.
  19. One of the funniest films I’ve seen all year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Infinitely impractical, consistently unique and vastly imaginative.
  20. This is a spacious, robust movie that grabs hold of us and doesn't let go for nearly three hours.
  21. Lock is filled with great writing, great acting, colorful characters, and a tight story. I actually like this film more than "Pulp Fiction".
  22. Is Red Dragon a better film than "Manhunter?" I don’t know. I think it stands on its own, but I wonder how much people who are intimately familiar with "Manhunter" will be shocked by it, although the ending is altogether different and much more realized, I think.
