  1. It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.
    • New York Post
  2. A civics lesson about integration very artfully - and entertainingly - disguised as an upbeat family sports movie.
  3. Toy Story had a simpler, stronger story and the advantage of being the first of its kind. But it's quickly apparent that TS2 represents a major step forward in computer-animation artistry.
  4. Doesn't have the crossover appeal of the Mexican sexcapade "Y Tu Mama Tambien," but it does herald the arrival of an audacious young filmmaker. We can't wait to see what he does next.
  5. Daring, mesmerizing and exceedingly hard to forget.

    The entire film is a feast for the eyes that brings to mind the work of Hong Kong ace Wong Kar-Wai.
  6. Pays off with emotional dividends well worth the time investment.
    • New York Post
  7. Morton deserves an Oscar nomination, but she is unlikely to get one. The movie is too dark and out of the mainstream to impress the conservative fogies who vote for the prizes.
  8. An indie gem.
    • New York Post
  9. The most effective moments in Taymor's gorgeous, surprisingly romantic Frida are those that evoke the visual world from which Kahlo's work was formed or the paintings themselves, often using clever animation and other special effects.
  10. A comedy as black as the asphalt desert of a mall parking lot.
  11. Combines big laughs, a big heart and thoroughly winning characters to become the first big surprise of the fall season.
  12. Be warned: Though it's entirely justified by the story, there's a level of violence and brutality in Training Day -- that some terror-weary audience members may not care to cope with these days.
  13. Lynch's first G-rated feature, turns out to be one of the year's best films...a wonderful surprise.
  14. Tremendously affecting on several levels, In the Bedroom is must-see viewing for anyone who complains Hollywood doesn't make movies for grownups.
  15. I've seen three or four other movies by Miike, and I can tell you that he's one of the most exciting, versatile directors working today.
  16. The gritty photography is a perfect match for the film's harsh realities, the script is taut (not a word or motion is wasted) and the acting is raw and realistic.
  17. Emotionally honest, feel-good saga with a universality that stands out in a season of singularly depressing and cynical Hollywood product.
  18. It's a positive hat trick by John Cameron Mitchell.
  19. The most delightful family movie since "Stuart Little."
    • New York Post
  20. Genuinely creepy Southern Gothic thriller that once again proves that in horror movies, sometimes less is actually more.
  21. May be the creepiest and most original horror film since John Carpenter's classic "Halloween."
    • New York Post
  22. The quirky High Fidelity really deserves being called the first must-see movie of the century.
    • New York Post
  23. Subversively funny, it's a welcome alternative to the big-budget movies flooding into theaters at this time of year.
  24. Schrader's strongest movie since "Affliction," is another meditation on American masculinity powerfully told with great wit and style.
  25. An astonishing re-creation of the Londonderry massacre of January 1972.
  26. Thoughtful and entertaining documentary.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Forget the hype, and the backlash. The Phantom Menace is captivating.
    • New York Post
  27. A technological landmark that couldn't look or sound better.
  28. An unforgettable and complex portrait of a nuclear family in meltdown.
