  1. In place of elaborate sets, clever filmmaking gives the impression of a central London emptied of people and cars, to eerie effect - and this opening reel is nothing short of magnificent.
  2. Cars leaves the animated competition in the dust, even if it is a tad slower and more predictable than Pixar at full throttle.
  3. An exhilarating, sweeping epic that begs to be seen on the largest possible screen.

  4. This demanding puzzle is not for the "Chocolat" crowd, but those who stay with it will experience perhaps the most dazzling film released so far this year - even though a second viewing is virtually mandatory.

  5. I'm not generally a huge fan of movies with two-or three-person casts -- they tend to resemble filmed plays -- but The Business of Strangers is a knockout.
  6. An instant classic.
  7. Pieta is one of Kim’s most complex and mature efforts, melding violence and humor into dark entertainment.
  8. Includes insightful and often hilarious archival interviews with Langlois and dozens of associates, as well as wonderful footage of Langlois.
  9. This movie doesn't get huffy, it gets laughs.
  10. The role of William is a perfect fit for Red West, a well-weathered member of Elvis Presley's Memphis Mafia who has served as a bodyguard as well as a stuntman and bit-part actor.
  11. Rarely less than absorbing and never boring over its nearly three-hour length.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Genuinely creepy Southern Gothic thriller that once again proves that in horror movies, sometimes less is actually more.
  16. The result is an immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them. In other words: great architect, lousy family man.
  17. Turns out to be one of the most absorbing films of the year. Plus it has lots of wiener jokes.
  18. So terrifically entertaining, it would be a shame if it didn't inspire a companion piece on New York.
  19. This is all as pure and sunny as lemonade.
  20. Pays off with emotional dividends well worth the time investment.

  21. An unforgettable and complex portrait of a nuclear family in meltdown.
  22. You'll either be screaming with laughter - or be incredibly offended.
  23. A twisty, spectacular farce.
  24. His (Friedkin) very lack of subtlety is both the strength and weakness of The Exorcist in the 21st century.
    • New York Post
  25. An astonishing re-creation of the Londonderry massacre of January 1972.
  26. This environmentally themed, very loose version of Hans Christian Andersen's "Little Mermaid" is never going to be mistaken for Disney's musical of the same name.

    (Osment) delivers what may be the greatest performance ever by a child actor.
  27. Thankfully, Tintin is Spielberg at his most playful and unpretentious.
  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. Atriumph on almost every level. It is breathtakingly stylish, wonderfully acted and its three interrelated tales of the "war" on drugs are brilliantly structured to form a cohesive, powerful whole.
