  1. Unfortunately, the film's final third is poorly focused and, while there is a clear conclusion, it feels strangely hollow.
  2. The computer-generated effects are a marvel. It's something of a bonus that the characters, dialogue, and story provide entertainment value of their own.
  3. Toy Story 3 enhances the legacy of its brand while providing exceptional entertainment value for viewers of all ages, especially for those who favor the brighter, livelier 2-D iteration over the 3-D gimmick.
  4. Fatoumata Coulibaly's peformance is striking. She plays her character with a mixture of determination and compassion.
  5. Like all great craftsmen, Lucas has managed to fashion this material in a manner that not only honors the original sources, but makes it uniquely his own. Hacks rip off other movies; artists synthesize and pay homage to their inspirations.
  6. A highly satirical work, albeit without the "in your face" style of "South Park."
  7. Close Encounters of the Third Kind is unquestionably a great movie.
  8. Represents the director at his best -- unsentimental yet powerful, funny and poignant, and, in the end, undeniably satisfying.
  9. Patton remains to this day one of Hollywood's most compelling biographical war pictures.
  10. It’s mostly an off-kilter road trip that accomplishes what the Coens do best - seamlessly merging drama, violence, and quirky humor into a whole.
  11. Has all the right ingredients: a smart script, a likable hero, a dash of romance, more than a touch of comedy, and a lot of fast-paced action.
  12. As is often the case with European films, the acting is superlative...The real standout, however, is newcomer Jaye Davidson, whose performance is, without exaggeration, stunning...Not to be missed.
  13. For those who are willing to brave the movie's shocking and unforgettable images, Saving Private Ryan offers a singular motion picture experience.
  14. Winter's Bone is a welcome reminder that thrillers don't have to be loud and boisterous to grab the attention and keep it captive.
  15. Lately, it seems that film noir has become the province of independent productions. As a result, it's refreshing to see a big-budget, studio effort of this sort that does nearly everything right.
  16. The result is a grim, startling motion picture.
  17. Her
    It's audacious but also genuine. It's emotionally true and demands much from its audience not in terms of suspension of disbelief but of empathy with the main character.
  18. This is truly a great film -- easily one of 1997's best.
  19. As always, the voice casting is perfect. Throw in a moral, and some nice touches of technical accuracy (that fish keepers will appreciate), and the movie represents the best family film to-date of 2003.
  20. In the midst of summer's cinematic thunder and lightning, this is a rare moment of tranquility.
  21. Isn't just fine family entertainment, it's superior family entertainment.
  22. American Splendor is deserving of accolades, not only because it tells an interesting story about a fascinating man, but because it does so with such freedom and freshness. I wish more of the comic book-inspired movies were like this.
  23. United 93 is powerful not only in the way it provides hope through the actions of a few unlikely heroes, but in its ability to take us back through time to a day many of us would prefer not to remember, but will never forget.
  24. An appealing, offbeat, one-hundred minute diversion for those who really are tired of monsters tearing down buildings and action heroes saving the world.
  25. The film is as powerful as any narrative motion picture in telling a story that rips at the emotions.
  26. American Hustle runs a little long with the strongest scenes occurring toward the end. Although the actors don't put on a clinic, they all provide worthwhile performances playing interesting characters, and there's a nice cameo thrown into the mix.
  27. Simply put, Sofia Copolla's Lost in Translation is an amazing motion picture.
  28. With solid performances and a terrific screenplay, this movie offers solid, no-frills drama that feels organic and believable, not contrived.
  29. It is Lee's job as a film maker to imbue these images with life, and that's a task he easily accomplishes.
  30. If you think "Hero" is a sumptuous film, prepare to be blown away by House of Flying Daggers.
