The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)

""Girl" is very much a movie without concession or restroom breaks: go prepared. The downside is that too much is not enough: the relentless - frequently unlikely - rush of events may astonish, but doesn't allow much emotional involvement."

The Exploding Girl (2010)

"The movie contains a feeling of intimacy, but Gray's camera always acts as more an observer than a participant. This approach mutes the emotional content somewhat, but we' re still allowed to connect with these characters."

Frozen (2010)

"I seriously doubt I will cavalierly take to a ski lift ever again."

Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

"Capitalism will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will make you angry -- in other words, par for the course for a Michael Moore movie."

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009)

"Stays on track as an entertaining-enough suspense thriller featuring fine performances by Denzel Washington, John Travolta and James Gandolfini."

Terminator Salvation (2009)

"If there's anything to be learned, it's that a) McG likes to blow stuff up, and b) Christian Bale, who plays resistance leader John Connor, likes to shout -- a lot."

The Limits of Control (2009)

"However artsy it may be, a movie that jerks the audience along from beginning to end is not a good one."

Skills Like This (2007)

"The movie is so well made that it's hard not to like this often funny movie regardless whether one takes the story too seriously."

Notorious (2009)

"Biggie is played well by newcomer Jamal Woolard, who not only looks the part but has the moves of a slick street rapper down."
