2/4 44% Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007) But even spectacles have their limits. Eventually there has to be substance to go with all that style, and that's where "At World's End" falls short. - Times-Picayune EDIT

3.5/4 53% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) The rollicking adventure, beautifully designed and filled with impressive visual effects, is a boatload of fun. - Times-Picayune EDIT

3.5/4 86% Inside Man (2006) Director Spike Lee's most polished effort in years is a gripping thriller with strong performances. - Times-Picayune EDIT

97% Good Will Hunting (1997) The movie... [is] surprisingly moving, though resolutely unsentimental, rites-of-passage yarn. - Times-Picayune EDIT

3/4 98% Say Anything... (1989) What makes Crowe's film worth seeing...is the writer's care in developing characters and situations of infinitely greater credibility than those which litter 99 percent of today's adolescent screen romances. - Times-Picayune EDIT

61% The Sandlot (1993) After a "Porky's"-style segment dealing with puppy lust, the film then segues to its better second half. - Times-Picayune EDIT

2.5/4 95% The Last of the Mohicans (1992) "The Last of the Mohicans" is, in short, an adventure flick for the intellectually unadventurous. - Times-Picayune EDIT

93% Fargo (1996) This curiously overpraised yet solid effort by two of the foremost satirists of contemporary Americana again finds director Joel and writer-producer Ethan surveying the wreckage of our national innocence. - Times-Picayune EDIT

84% JFK (1991) [It] is a beautifully crafted, steadily engrossing mega-thriller. - Times-Picayune EDIT

4/4 100% Toy Story 2 (1999) "Toy Story 2" offers as much fun as audiences are likely to have in movie theaters this season. - Times-Picayune EDIT

3.5/4 100% Toy Story (1995) [Tom] Hanks doesn't just speak lines, he gives a performance. - Times-Picayune EDIT

56% Alien Resurrection (1997) Jeunet,... has both a pictorial imagination and a healthy sense of irony, qualities that may not have viewers on the edge of their seats but do tend to make "Resurrectoin" quirky fun. - Times-Picayune EDIT

42% Alien3 (1992) Unfortunately, David Fincher's "Alien 3" - though it's an honest attempt to sustain the creative level of the series - makes a good case for the idea of quitting while you're ahead. - Times-Picayune EDIT

3.5/4 93% Glory (1989) "Glory" is most memorable for some quieter scenes... that capture more elusive aspects of its story - and that help audiences to grasp the underlying significance of what the 54th achieved. - Times-Picayune EDIT

90% Misery (1990) Reiner's tense adaptation of Stephen King's first satisfying screen yarn in years is superbly paced, chock full of devilish plot twists and capable of lifting audiences inches off their seats. - Times-Picayune EDIT

2.5/4 89% Titanic (1997) See Titanic, then, for its success as an outrageous visual stunt -- a marvel of cinematic (and computer) sleight-of-hand. But don't go with any illusions that this soap opera on water is anything but a cartoon melodrama with fairy-tale leads. - Times-Picayune EDIT

2.5/4 78% GoldenEye (1995) It contains four or five humorous, intricately choreographed action sequences that -- while not as riveting as similar episodes in True Lies or Die Hard With a Vengeance -- are enjoyable on that idiot level that even critics possess. - Times-Picayune EDIT

92% Pulp Fiction (1994) A 2 1/2 -hour tour-de-force of personal style that (with the help of an extraordinary cast) creates more memorable characters than any other movie this year. - Times-Picayune EDIT
