The Bank Job (2008)

"More Dog Day Afternoon than Ocean's Eleven ... I'd be hard-pressed to come up with three great scenes, but there aren't any bad ones."

"All about people being cast into roles they don't necessarily want to embrace, and yet they do because it's easier to submit than to make the effort to be who you really want ... Features a breakout performance by Anton Yelchin."

"Javier Bardem's Chigurh is the embodiment of Sheriff Bell's exasperation -- a mythological, Grim Reaper-like figure whose existence makes order and civility implausible."

"There has to be a way to weave your personal issues and memories together into a story that transcends just presenting a bunch of ugliness. Margot rarely rises above that."

"Elah is, for the most part, exactly what Crash wasn't -- understated. Haggis spends most of the film focusing on the procedural aspects of the investigation rather than moralizing."

"Could have been brilliant or an absolute train wreck. Instead it's something worse -- dull."

The Invasion (2007)

"Contains writing so bad, Jeremy Northam comes off more charismatic as a pod person than a normal person."

"Much of what is good about We Own The Night is undercut by an average performance from Wahlberg and a downright annoying performance from Phoenix, who unfortunately has to carry most of the movie."

Fracture (2007)

"Only worth seeing if you enjoy watching talented actors sleepwalk through a plodding thriller."

The Savages (2007)

"I wanted to do what patriarch Philip Bosco did -- pull the hood of my jacket up to drown out Hoffman and Linney's tedious bickering."

Cloverfield (2008)

"Ultimately asks us to invest in whether a monster is going to stop a dude from saying he's sorry to the girl he loves ... but Cloverfield is an 82-minute amusement park ride I was glad I grabbed a ticket for."

Juno (2007)

"Screenwriter Diablo Cody takes teen comedy cliches and turns them on their heads ... Made me laugh more than any film this year."

"Stylistically familiar and yet unique ... This is Paul Thomas Anderson's Kind of Blue."

"Interesting to see Allen's continued fascination with class since coming to London, but his writing and directing here lack the punch of 2005's Match Point."

Persepolis (2007)

"A coming-of-age tale that exquisitely captures the fickle nature of youth ... Whimsical and clever if not necessarily challenging or engrossing emotionally."

In Bruges (2008)

"A dark but fun movie about two characters in need of redemption, with the medieval title city as a perfect stand-in for purgatory ... Farrell and Gleeson are a dynamic odd couple."

"How do you have a film called The Bucket List without bothering to actually share the formation of the list with the audience, item by item, crossing them off as they go?"

Chicago 10 (2008)

"If Chicago 10's style occasionally stifles its substance, Morgen's artful blend of animation and archival footage is nevertheless a powerful piece of rage-against-the-machine propaganda."

"Despite a last act cop-out and its cutesy, unsatisfying narrative gimmick, writer/director Adam Brooks offers a surprisingly unsentimental take on modern romance."

"Kind of a mess, but one that gets by thanks to the shoot-it-yourself exuberance of Gondry and his cinephile heroes."
