  1. Cheerful, slightly cheesy entertainment that uses the latest special-effects techniques to breathe life into a venerable film tradition.
  2. Expertly directed, acted and written crowd-pleaser.
  3. Gripping and stylish thriller.
  4. Lacks the humor and charm that fills the book and makes it so much more than a catalog of suffering.
  5. Just as spectacular as seeing the view from Everest or other natural wonders caught by the IMAX technology.
  6. It is an important, thoroughly bewitching work of art.
  7. It's an even rarer pleasure to see a film that combines exciting action with a smart, well-informed script and vivid yet restrained performances.
  8. Less grim than it sounds, Southern Comfort ends on a note of triumph for its endearing, gender-bending hero.
  9. The cast is amazing -- two of the lead actresses are first-timers.
  10. Davis, a hugely underrated actress..., is deadpan perfection as Joyce, wearing oversized glasses and a wig that makes her look like an older version of Thora Birch's character in "Ghost World."
  11. Smart, funny and ingeniously detailed with terrific vocal teamwork.
  12. For some reason, the people who make modern musicals don't like to let you watch dancers dance -- there are still too few moments when you get to enjoy choreography from a dancer's hands to her feet.
  13. A head-clearing, mind-blowing blast from the past - one of the year's best.
  14. So smooth and satisfying it makes the similar "Ocean's Eleven" look like a game of three-card monte.
  15. Despite its shock value, Thirteen rises above dysfunctional-family-drama cliches, thanks to the truthfulness of its script and the keen eye of a sympathetic director.
  16. There's style and panache to spare. Mournful jazz adds to the mood.
  17. A terrific work of political and social satire set in a Nebraska high school that has the intelligence of (the less coherent) "Rushmore," while painting a much darker picture of politics and human relationships.
  18. His (Friedkin) very lack of subtlety is both the strength and weakness of The Exorcist in the 21st century.
  19. Like some of Hitchcock's films, the story - adapted from a novel by Charlotte Armstrong, an American mystery writer of the '40s and '50s - can be accused of stretching credibility and coincidence almost to the breaking point.
  20. Splendidly spectacular, intelligent and very well-acted.
  21. A haunting, superbly made film. But it's also an unrelentingly sad and depressing experience.
  22. Vastly superior to the small and independent films that have come out during the last six months.
  23. I was laughing so hard, tears were streaming down my cheeks.
  24. A reminder of just how good Hollywood storytelling can be.
  25. The faint of heart might want to leave early. If you elect to stay, remember: You were warned.
  26. It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.
  27. A civics lesson about integration very artfully - and entertainingly - disguised as an upbeat family sports movie.
  28. 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.
  29. 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.
  30. Daring, mesmerizing and exceedingly hard to forget.
