  1. Chomet's wacky tale is so crammed full of eye-popping images, it's impossible to forget afterward.
  2. A spectacularly rendered tale of a family of superheroes, takes the art form to a whole new level.
  3. Those with the stomach to sit through Decline will be rewarded with a lively, masterful documentary.
  4. Porumboiu, who also produced and wrote, elicits remarkably deadpan performances from Teo Corban (as the show's host), Ion Sapdaru (the professor) and - especially - Mircea Andreescu, as the old man. Even the subtitles cracked me up.
  5. Christopher Nolan's dramatically and emotionally satisfying wrap-up to the Dark Knight trilogy adroitly avoids clichés and gleefully subverts your expectations at every turn.
  6. Break out the popcorn and prepare to be blown away. King Kong is the most pulse- pounding and heart-stirring romantic adventure since "Titanic."
  7. Masterful, atypically political - and flawlessly acted.
  8. The year's best foreign-language movie an absolute must-see.

  9. A thrilling and propulsive drama.
  10. Old-school filmmaking at its best.
  11. Walk the Line superbly combines music and two of the year's most riveting performances to tell one of the screen's great love stories.
  12. Getting a small cohort of humanity dead right is an impressive artistic achievement, but Mike Leigh's beautifully modulated English drama Another Year advances even farther.
  13. As we face yet another summer of brooding superheroes, it's Magic Mike to the rescue! He's got the civilian alter ego and the acrobatic skills to rival Spidey or Batman.

    A film of such cyclonic visual and emotional power, of such dazzling virtuosity and shattering humanity, that it is difficult to endure, yet alone describe. Savagely beautiful and savagely true, Saving Private Ryan is an excruciating masterpiece.
  14. Tomlin and Elliot relive their characters’ pain and anger so deeply that they could very well both end up with Oscar nominations.

    A flat-out masterpiece, surely the best movie of the year; indeed, an all-time classic.

  15. This Belgian drama is the real deal, an alternately wrenching and ecstatic viewing experience, adapted from a play by lead actor Johan Heldenbergh.
  16. Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
  17. Summer hasn't even started, but you won't likely find a better catch this season than Finding Nemo, a dazzling, computer-animated fish tale with a funny, touching script and wonderful voice performances that make it an unqualified treat for all ages.
  18. The best reason to wade into this (let's be honest) challenging but hugely rewarding film is Quvenzhané Wallis.
  19. It falls to Hanks and his movie-star presence to anchor this ambitious enterprise, and he does some of his most impressive acting without saying a word.
  20. Capping off the year that transgender stopped being transgressive, the story of artist Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne) makes for one of the year’s finest films.
  21. Visually imaginative, The Theory of Everything is an unusually compelling true-life story about an extraordinary couple triumphing over adversity. It’s my favorite movie so far this year.
  22. A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come.
  23. Like all great movies, 127 Hours takes us on a memorable journey. Which is not easy when 90 percent of the movie takes place with a virtually immobile hero in a very cramped setting.
  24. The End of the Tour is a five-day bender of a talk — a film that illuminates like few others the singular pleasure of shared discovery of one another’s sensibility. In an unassuming way, it’s a glory.
  25. The latest episode of this ongoing masterpiece of reality TV -- which every seven years revisits a group of English people first interviewed as 7-year-olds in 1964 -- is every bit as enthralling as the earlier ones.

  26. Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.
  27. Delightful performances are delivered by all in this ingenious work of cinema that is worth seeing if only for its glorious views of the Himalayas.
  28. You won't have a more viscerally emotional experience at the movies this year.
