Sublime (2007)

"Proving that a movie called Puccini For Beginners actually can be as deeply pretentious as its title implies, Puccini For Beginners attempts to pick up the torch once carried by Woody Allen for the romantic comedy of ideas."

Zodiac (2007)

"The movie provides a crackling chase narrative that should please fans of the dozen or so police procedurals already on TV, but it can't deliver what it doesn't have."

Amazing Grace (2007)

"Like Steven Spielberg's glossy Amistad before it, Amazing Grace shies away from the texture and complexity of color, scurrying instead for the safer platitudes of black and white -- good and evil."

"Somber and watchful, like the people whose story it tells, The Lives of Others brilliantly abrades our perception of the 1980s as a time when the only history worth remembering was being made by Wham! and Duran Duran."

Breach (2007)

"You begin to suspect the FBI may be the world's most boring bunch of crime busters during Breach, a movie that urgently asserts itself as a spy thriller."

"The only thing you can't fault in Because I Said So is Keaton's integrity, as she commits herself completely to a disastrous role."

"Patrick Marber's adaptation of the Zo Heller novel improves upon the promise of the [Dench/Blanchett] pairing with a story that wastes no time on preliminaries as it descends -- gleefully -- into pitch-black comedy."

"The movie talks suggestively about smells but can't quite find a way to bring them to life, so [director Tom] Tykwer uses images to rub our noses in as many disgusting things as he can."

Grease (1978)

"An unembarrassed movie musical, something my generation experienced only in Sunday-afternoon movies on TV."

"The trouble is the movie never really seems to go anywhere. Too many scenes have a feeling of irresolution; they just sort of go on for a while, then disappear."

"This movie manages with great economy to show that soldiers on both sides had far more in common than they thought."

Rocky Balboa (2006)

"What makes this vanity project so pleasurable is that Stallone has written a script filled with wit, and even self-deprecation. In the end, there's no quit in Rocky Balboa. More alarmingly, there appears to be none in Sylvester Stallone."

Dreamgirls (2006)

"[Dreamgirls proves] again that transforming a hit Broadway musical into an equally spectacular movie is one of the most confounding tricks in show business."
