  1. Whip-smart, sexy and delightfully twisty romantic thriller.
  2. A blue-chip Oscar contender that's also a rousing popcorn movie, Ben Affleck's Argo offers plenty of nail-biting thrills as well as funnier scenes than you'd ever imagine possible in the grim context of the Iran hostage crisis.
  3. While Tarr's newest epic, Werckmeister Harmonies, isn't intended for the shopping-mall crowd, it is more viewer-friendly and will please adventurous moviegoers.
  4. Expertly mixing tears and laughs with the sort of alchemy not seen since "Terms of Endearment," this superbly written, directed, acted, and yes, Oscar-friendly movie perfectly captures the blackly comic insanity that can overtake a family forced to confront an impending death.
  5. Hollywood's Woman of the Year is a pregnant 16-year-old, the incredibly hip, smart-mouthed and totally endearing heroine of the wise and witty Juno.
  6. What a sweet collision is Rescue Dawn: the American psycho meets the German kook.
  7. It's time to stop calling Azazel Jacobs a "promising" filmmaker. With Momma's Man, Jacobs achieves the promise.
  8. Less a conventional biography than a performance film - one that stuns and delights.
  9. An unqualified triumph, the year's best movie so far.

  10. It takes a world-class storyteller and a great yarn to rivet your attention for nearly three hours. This very classy, old-school movie - employing cutting-edge technology that will make your eyes pop - did it for me.
  11. This eye-popping, inspired and often-demented (in a good way) cross between "The Red Shoes" and "All About Eve" channels horror maestros David Cronenberg, Brian De Palma and Dario Argento.
  12. Twice I have left a Calvary screening feeling dazed and moved.
  13. Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves is the purest, boldest re-imagining of silent cinema yet.
  14. Taken together, Eastwood's masterworks - two of the best films of 2006 - may be Hollywood's last word on World War II.
  15. The very sex-positive The Sessions treats intimacy with an explicitness and honesty that's very rare in movies. It may be the first film that doesn't turn premature ejaculation into a punch line.
  16. The movie equivalent of a 12-course feast crammed with unforgettable images and mind-boggling stunts.
  17. Whether Tiny Furniture is a mumblecore movie is an open question. It has many of the tell-tale signs of that ill-defined genre; although improvised dialogue, a mumblecore staple, is minimal.
  18. A really classic adventure yarn with one of Hollywood's great actors hitting one out of the ballpark. If you're seeing only one movie this season, this is the obvious choice.

  19. Many of the images — and Salgado’s accounts of taking them — are as soul-shattering as they are breathtaking.
  20. Sheer delight. An ensemble comedy-drama that recalls Robert Altman's best work.
  21. 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.
  22. Petzold raises questions of honor and builds the romance with an absolutely rigorous lack of sentiment, moving Barbara to a sweeping finish as emotionally satisfying as any this year.
  23. This is one perfectly terrifying movie, an instant classic.
  24. Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.
  25. Nothing this year comes close to being as utterly unforgettable as Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, an extremely dark and disturbing fairy tale for audiences say, ages 12 and up.
  26. A gorgeous, poetic and stirring epic.
  27. Beach ("Windtalkers") gives a tremendously moving, Oscar-caliber performance as Hayes, portrayed by Tony Curtis in an earlier movie and celebrated in a song performed by both Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.
  28. If there is a genius working in Hollywood today, it's animation director Brad Bird, who tops the delightful "The Incredibles" with arguably the finest 'toon in the Pixar canon, Ratatouille.
  29. The best and most entertaining movie adaptation of a stage musical so far this century - and yes, I’m including the Oscar-winning "Chicago."
  30. A charming, hilarious robot love story aimed at the entire family.
