Black Sheep (2006)

Evan Almighty (2007)

"Evan Almighty strains consistently to pave the way for topical humor, yet lacks inspired comedic charm and a cogent message."

Sicko (2007)

"In moving away from the dirty arena of polemics, Sicko accomplishes something Moore has sought for quite some time: coherence."

Live Free or Die Hard (2007)

"To call this the best Die Hard movie ever made merely acknowledges that Director Len Wiseman simplifies the franchise to its basic elements: Predicament, Villain, Hero, Action."

Joshua (2007)

"Joshua survives its muddled experimentation with homage and mystery primarily due to the ability of its cast to play it straight through all the mood changes."

Rescue Dawn (2007)

"Rescue Dawn's late-coming Vietnam war story -- [Werner] Herzog's first American drama -- is his best film since his great 1970s period."

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004)

"It's part of that American eccentricity to obsess over growing up. Anderson's obsession has genuine, daffy substance."
