  1. Rowan Atkinson's spy spoof is wildly uneven and yet, at times, nothing less than wildly entertaining.

    I’m Not Scared manages to convey a truthful approach to the beginning of the end of childhood.
  2. Beyond any contention is Morgan Spurlock's gift for metabolizing common knowledge into uncommonly entertaining cinema.
  3. The story itself holds up fairly well though, twenty years later, does come off as thinner than I recalled.

    Director Edward Zwick has an ace up his sleeve, in addition to all the glorious scenery and pulse-pounding battles, and that’s Ken Watanabe.
  4. Will warm your heart without making you feel guilty about it.
  5. The leads are all likable, albeit two-dimensional, and the rompish surreal texture of the film, makes it stylishly hip and humorous, almost like an episode of "The Monkees."
  6. With Manito's raw portrayal of its characters and stripped-down cinematography, the undercurrent of impending tragedy is palpable.
  7. I found myself in a tug-of-war between enjoying Bottle Shock as entertaining fluff, and thinking that there might be a more serious, gritty, complicated story lurking behind the grab-ass soap opera.
  8. Of the underutilized mega cast, Djmon Honsou shines the brightest. His portrayal of Cinque, the leader of the displaced band of African tribesmen, is devastatingly potent.

    A heartfelt and incredibly resonant ode to his father's achievement, Mario's film relives the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the making of Melvin's pioneering effort.
  9. While it does deliver some good jolts, it never quite cranks up the terror.
    • 30 Metascore

    A terrific story, years in the making, that clearly stays true to the uncompromising vision of its creators. The results are on the screen.

    What’s most surprising in Hotel for Dogs, is Don Cheadle co-starring as Bernie.
  10. The movie doesn’t even try to break new ground–it’s shot entirely on location in familiar Ferrell-McKay territory.
  11. Hey, I'm not saying it's bad. It's kind of entertaining, what I can recall of it after two days. It's, uh, okay. Just okay, though.
    • 68 Metascore

    It's a damn impressive trick to build a film around narrative frustration and not cause your audience to run out screaming.

    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.
  12. The film is a visceral overload of wordplay ranging from the spontaneous neighborhood park jams to the overflowing concert venues.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Overall, while the film is a gorgeous, nostalgic cinema experience, and there's definitely a multiple of mini-plots to unravel while you work towards the final resolution, the film comes up as a bit of a dud.
  13. Leatherheads is as trifling as Clooney’s second movie (“Good Night and Good Luck”) was significant, but that’s okay. It succeeds where so many other romantic comedies fail because of a superior script and because everyone involved has the good sense not to take themselves too seriously.
  14. While the film is flawed, lacks desperately needed humor and is filled with cliches, the attempt to explore the human cost of all those cool explosions and destruction is an admirable one.
  15. Believe it or not, most of the empathy here is with Wand Jean's legal team. Yes, the lawyers.
  16. Eisenstadt does an excellent job bringing the story of an ambitious young woman setting out to fulfill a dream full circle.
  17. It has its share of eye-rolling moments, but at its heart there's a decent story.
  18. The only complaint is that the plot ultimately tries to take over the character drama with twists, turns and some rather pointed preachiness. But at least it's fiercely smart about it. And Algrant's final shot is gorgeous.

    It is just too bad that this film isn’t as snarky and groundbreaking as it would like you to think it is.

    Please Chris Carter, bring us X-Files fans back to where we belong. If there is to be another movie, and there damn well better be, return us to our beloved mythology.
  19. A silly comic book movie with provocative psychological overtones. Or a provocative character study with silly comic book overtones. Take your pick. Either way, it's hardly the cinematic milestone it's widely hailed as being.
  20. A small, no-budget, seemingly unsophisticated film that creates a minor energy miracle by fueling its running time on pure raffish charm.
