  1. It's distinctly Morrisean, as it were, and seeing his style applied to subject matter with which one is already somewhat familiar makes one... well, question the style a bit.
  2. The Fall is a movie whose every frame pulsates with the desire to be a transportive, transcendent work of cinema. And each one of said frames is full of visual bedazzlement and wonder. So full that one is loathe to sum up with the phrase "Close, but no cigar." But there is something, finally, kind of pushy about the film's desire to be a masterpiece.

    From Downey Jr.'s purposely racist embodiment of African-American anachronisms to Black's scatological humor, everything in Tropic Thunder qualifies as satire, not spoof. It's an important distinction. Pauline Kael once noted that "unlike satire, spoofing has no serious objectives; it doesn't attack anything that anyone could take seriously; it has no cleansing power."

    The perfect antidote to the post-holiday blues. It's exciting, well-acted, touching, and genuine.

    A remarkable and disturbing look at the personal stories glossed over by the headlines.

    Sally Hawkins offers an Oscar-worthy performance as Poppy, the funny, kind-hearted, and mischievous protagonist.

    At turns as neurotic and nebbishy as any Woody Allen flick, as creepy and disorienting as your favorite "Twilight Zone" episode, and as steeped in magical realism as the most moving Márquez novel, Synecdoche may not be the feel-good date movie of the year. But for viewers up for the challenge, it may be the film most likely to stick with you.

    Sometimes the only funny stuff is in the trailers, but not so here. Kristen Johnson was especially adept at stealing some scenes.

    The beginning is a little slow, but after Neeson starts his hunt and does his best wrath-of-God impression, it doesn’t skip a beat.

    The story is creepy fun and 100-percent different than whatever other crap is flooding the February market.

    Ginnifer Goodwin gives a standout performance--and that’s saying a lot considering the large cast--as the insecure, neurotic female looking for love.

    This movie was absolutely hilarious, and proved that dating might be easy, but making friends is much harder.

    Each character has their own story, and Pixar never sacrifices their development just for a happy ending.

    You might not bust a gut laughing, but Malkovich’s performance alone is worth the 90-minutes required to watch it.

    On the surface, this might look like a typical teen movie, but Adventureland’s talented cast perfectly portrays the self-loathing and strong-minded characters in that transient post-college stage of life.

    A great-looking and smart film. It has enough action, wonder, depth, and action to keep any fan of the genre happy. The sociological undertones here are fascinating as well.

    The credits may be silly, but the last scene is a definite tear-jerker.

    Why John Cusack stopped doing this kind of movie remains one of the late-20th century’s great mysteries. Teaming him with contemporary comic vanguards Corrdry and Robinson is equal parts welcome and unexpected as the three relive the social, sexual, and Soviet fears of the era.

    We were also glad to see they didn't ignore the humorous elements that made the original so great. Plus, the casting is spot on.

    Inception is one of the best sci-fi movies of the new century, a mind-bender about dreams as public spaces.

    It's the kind of smart, stylish, entertaining and grown-up movie that the studios are making less and less of these days.
