  1. So consistently involving because the excellent cast delivers their lines with the kind of utter conviction not seen in this kind of movie since the first "Star Wars."
  2. Like a bomb exploding in a fireworks factory: It's fierce and shocking and dazzling and wonderful.
  3. A rare case of an American remake that actually improves on a European movie.

    A flat-out masterpiece, surely the best movie of the year; indeed, an all-time classic.
  4. An unqualified triumph.
  5. Sheer delight. An ensemble comedy-drama that recalls Robert Altman's best work.

    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.
  6. Being John Malkovich, which contains not a frame of extraneous footage, is more than a must-see movie: It's a must-see-more-than-once event.
  7. You have never seen a movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because there has never been a movie like it.
  8. A Japanese cross between "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Wizard of Oz" -- is such a landmark in animation that labeling it a masterpiece almost seems inadequate.
  9. Perhaps the year's most daring and fully realized movie, is a pitch-perfect re-creation of '50s melodramas, showcasing a four-hankie performance by a peroxided Julianne Moore.
  10. Short and sweet, small and smart, Tadpole is the oasis in the desert of dopey summer blockbusters - an uproarious, sophisticated coming-of-age comedy so flawlessly written, acted and directed it seems practically miraculous.
  11. 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.
  12. A thrilling, beautifully crafted, fact-based horse story that's not merely the summer's finest movie, but may well be the one to catch come Academy Awards time.
  13. It's impossible to conceive of this ruefully funny entertainment without Bill Murray, who is nothing less than brilliant.
  14. It's a wistful yet penetrating film, shot through with magic realism and life-affirming humor, that gets you deep down where you live.
  15. Chomet's wacky tale is so crammed full of eye-popping images, it's impossible to forget afterward.
  16. A majestic conclusion to a nine-plus-hours epic that stirs the heart, mind and soul as few films ever have.
  17. Audacious, thought-provoking and ruefully funny.
  18. At turns sexy, ultra-violent and sweet, it will infiltrate your brain long after you've seen it.
  19. Chance encounters and fated love are the stuff of fairy tales, which is what makes the deliriously romantic sequel Before Sunset a small miracle.
  20. A gorgeous, poetic and stirring epic.
  21. Caouette has used art, wit and a huge heart to forge his experiences into an unqualified masterpiece.
  22. Who's going to love it? Anyone with a sense of humor: Team America: World Police is hands-down the funniest movie of the year.
  23. A sublime variation on the buddy road movie, infusing the midlife crises of the two main protagonists with hope and poetry.
  24. Pure magic.
  25. From the Hitchcockian opening credits to the final frame, Almodovar has Hitch on his mind.
  26. The movie equivalent of a 12-course feast crammed with unforgettable images and mind-boggling stunts.
  27. A spectacularly rendered tale of a family of superheroes, takes the art form to a whole new level.
  28. A spare, exquisitely realized masterpiece about faith, redemption and boxing that beautifully illustrates his longtime philosophy that "less is more."
