  1. This movie belongs to its young stars, who have grown immensely as actors since they were first ideally cast by Chris Columbus, the hack who directed the first two movies.
  2. There are more than ample rewards for discerning adults: Some of the best dialogue in a recent movie and a gallery of unforgettable performances.
  3. It's the well-wrought details that explain, perhaps better than any earlier film, how an entire country bought into Hitler's genocidal madness.
  4. The teen movie The Spectacular Now begins like “Say Anything” but soon turns into “Drink Anything.”
  5. Despite having no previous film experience, Kare Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson give evocative performances as Oskar and Eli, respectively.
  6. Literate and engrossing, with excellent performances.
  7. Once it calms down and stops trying to be funny, it turns into a thoughtful and intriguing drama.
  8. The movie has enormous force - because it's about a genius, yes, but even more so because of the intelligence, passion and wit of the people who knew Marley.
  9. The White Ribbon is one of the finest films that ever repelled me, a holiday in the abyss.
  10. An extraordinary experience: an original and brilliant combination of comedy, action and sophisticated political comment -- the best American movie of the year thus far.
  11. A stunning achievement, every bit the equal of the classic moun taineering book which inspired it.
  12. The Agronomist uses archival footage and music to tell a moving story that's all too common in the Third World.
  13. As Kym, Hathaway runs an astonishing gamut of emotions, from anger to fragility and from hurt to regret - without ever seeming actress-y, like Nicole Kidman. Start clearing that mantelpiece, Anne.
  14. Le Havre is warm-hearted and uplifting, without being schmaltzy or preachy. And, with its illegal-alien theme, it's dead-on timely.
  15. Days of Glory has good intentions and a well-executed combat scene, but it could do with more originality.
  16. Far from earthshaking, but it's fun while it lasts.
  17. Isn't just scary, charming and delightfully unpredictable - it's also smarter and subtler than any new movie out there.
  18. Lilya is portrayed by Oksana Akinshina, who gives a dynamic, heartbreaking performance... She was wonderful in ["Brothers"], but is even more astonishing in Lilya 4-Ever.
  19. Vladimir Garin and Ivan Dobronravov are amazingly natural as the boys, and Konstantin Lavronenko impresses as the taciturn father.
  20. The highest praise I can give a superhero movie is that it makes me forget about its 10-cent-comic-book soul.
  21. The news footage, so powerful on its own, needs no enhancement. The dramatized scenes only slow the film's momentum.
  22. Working from a well-thought-out script co-written by director Stéphane Brizé, the two stars deliver impressive, understated performances.
  23. There is no shortage of indie movies about economically challenged women. This one is different, in that the women actually do something besides just talk about it.
  24. Kosashvili's clear-eyed approach to the cultural tradition of arranged marriage balances respect and scorn, and he reconciles the comedy and tragedy inherent in Zaza's tug-of-love with finesse.
  25. A breakthrough animated film -- a trippy cross between "Yellow Submarine" and "My Dinner With Andre" that will leave some audience members struggling to stay awake and others reaching for a toke.
  26. A gripping reminder of a brutal chapter of 20th-century history.
  27. The stylish flick harkens back to the work of old masters like Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu.
  28. As cute and energetic as it is, The Lego Movie is more exhausting than fun, too unsure of itself to stick with any story thread for too long. The action scenes are enthusiastic, colorful but uninvolving, like an 8-year-old emptying a bucket of plastic blocks.
  29. Anybody who's ever seen a movie about exorcism knows that, in cases like this, the first thing to do is call 1-800-PRIEST, which the family does.
  30. Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves is the purest, boldest re-imagining of silent cinema yet.
