  1. Patton remains to this day one of Hollywood's most compelling biographical war pictures.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Close Encounters of the Third Kind is unquestionably a great movie.
  6. 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.
  7. The result is a grim, startling motion picture.
  8. 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.
  9. For those who are willing to brave the movie's shocking and unforgettable images, Saving Private Ryan offers a singular motion picture experience.
  10. This is truly a great film -- easily one of 1997's best.
  11. 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.
  12. In the midst of summer's cinematic thunder and lightning, this is a rare moment of tranquility.
  13. Isn't just fine family entertainment, it's superior family entertainment.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Talk about taking things to a new level… Theaters showing Fury Road should have seat belts installed.
  17. An appealing, offbeat, one-hundred minute diversion for those who really are tired of monsters tearing down buildings and action heroes saving the world.
  18. The film is as powerful as any narrative motion picture in telling a story that rips at the emotions.
  19. 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.
  20. Simply put, Sofia Copolla's Lost in Translation is an amazing motion picture.
  21. With solid performances and a terrific screenplay, this movie offers solid, no-frills drama that feels organic and believable, not contrived.
  22. It is Lee's job as a film maker to imbue these images with life, and that's a task he easily accomplishes.
  23. If you think "Hero" is a sumptuous film, prepare to be blown away by House of Flying Daggers.
  24. A fascinating time capsule: a combination of talking-head interviews, actual footage, and re-creations that evokes a kinder, gentler world and provides insight into one of the most audacious stunts of the 20th century.
  25. The tone is perfect; this is one of those rare films that, despite being rooted firmly in the world around us, is utterly absorbing and capable of reducing the immediacies of life into abstract thoughts in the back of one's mind.
  26. The variation keeps things fresh and the relatively short running length (less than 90 minutes) ensures that Borat doesn't overstay its welcome - even though when it's all done, we wish this absurd man might have lingered a little longer.
  27. Taken as a whole, this is compulsive viewing and offers plenty of material for post-viewing discussions.
  28. The film’s contribution is the unique perspective it provides about what it meant to work in a death camp.
  29. Whether you view this film in the middle of the summer or at Christmas, Capra's greatest film represents one of the most transcendent and joyful experiences any movie-lover can hope for.
  30. Ultimately, Goodbye Solo works because the screenplay, actors, and director combine to craft honest, compelling individuals.
