  1. The lack of family friendliness does not diminish what del Toro has achieved with this magical motion picture.
  2. This is easily the best family feature of the early year.
  3. Ricci's performance is brave and effective - the most provocative in a career that has rejected Hollywood norms.
  4. Using black humor, blood, and a pair of tremendous performances, Freeway hones in on its targets and calculatedly skewers them one-by-oneā€¦This movie is both grimly funny and thought-provoking.
  5. The acting is uniformly excellent. For the roles of Ashoke and Ashima, Nair has employed prolific Bollywood stars Tabu and Irfan Khan, both of whom give performances of great range and empathy.
  6. Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle is a top-notch movie. Everything is in place -- a striking lead performance, solid supporting players, a well-written script, and, above all, expert direction to merge the ingredients.
  7. The story is timely and powerful, and the performances of Hanks and Washington assure that the characters will not immediately vanish into obscurity.
  8. Gut-wrenching, brutal, and powerful, American Me is not enjoyable in the conventional sense, but nevertheless stands out as one of the year's most impressive purely dramatic offerings.
  9. Black Book possesses a taut, exciting script that throws surprises at the viewer on a regular basis.
  10. An engrossing examination of the elemental forces that define human nature.
  11. De Niro successfully varies the tone, keeping it light and playful at times, dark and somber at others. A Bronx Tale is his triumph, and a testimony that all those years of watching the best in the business have borne fruit. If what is yet to come has any of the promise shown by this debut, we may be witnessing the birth of yet another directing talent.
  12. This is a film of tremendous scope and emotional depth that uncovers the soul of a novel and brings it to life on the screen.
  13. The tale related here isn't all that original, but the honest presentation lends impact to a wrenching scenario.
  14. With its refined wit and glorious vision, The Hudsucker Proxy is certainly deserving of a wide audience.
  15. Everything (not just the flesh) is vibrant with life.
  16. Witness states its position about clashing cultures with eloquence.
  17. I wouldn't go so far as to classify Jacob's Ladder as a masterpiece, but it is smart and compelling and unquestionably worth a first or second look.
  18. For those who enjoy the offbeat, The City of Lost Children is worth taking the time and effort to find.
  19. Georgia is a tour de force for Leigh, and her portrayal of the troubled, passionate Sadie lingers in the mind long after many of the movie's plot details have faded.
  20. This film is the complete package, and offers a thoroughly satisfying two-plus hours in a darkened theater.
  21. It delivers on everything it promises, from the modern day reverse-Cinderella fable to a fabric of low-key humor. [Review of re-release]
  22. Knocked Up could be one of the summer of 2007's sleeper hits. It certainly deserves the distinction.
  23. The movie is jovial without being silly; it retains the sense of adventure that characterizes the Western, but replaces the often somber mood with one that is airy and, at times, almost comedic.
  24. This is the kind of charming motion picture that can be viewed repeatedly without ever wearing out its welcome. With several triumphant musical numbers, an original villain, a smart and witty script, a cute romance, and a new, upbeat ending, this Little Shop of Horrors offers countless delights during its 94-minute running time.
  25. This is a beautifully-shot film, and director Robert Redford (who also provides the voice-over narration) has paid painstaking attention to detail.
  26. The latest offering from Edward Zwick, the director of "Glory," is the kind of movie that doesn't require much effort to surrender to and enjoy.
  27. Pump Up the Volume, in addition to presenting an engaging story, has tapped into a universal truth about rebels with causes.
  28. It's those moments and others and the way they are tied together by Shepherd's tongue-in-cheek narration that cements A Christmas Story as one of those rare must-see holiday movies, even for those who don't celebrate Christmas.
  29. For those who have gotten their Harry Potter fix entirely through the cinematic incarnation, the script is lucid and fast-moving.
  30. Haunting and disturbing, Time is the kind of motion picture that gets under your skin and doesn't let go.
