5/10 69% The Darjeeling Limited (2007) It seems like Anderson is still a struggling seventeen year-old, angrily filming his defiance and shouting to the heavens that he 'doesn't have to explain his art to us.'‐ FirstShowing.net

8/10 94% Gone Baby Gone (2007) Gone Baby Gone is a film you'd expect from his former partner in crime Matt Damon, but instead, this quirky thriller is a surprise based on Affleck's penchant for high-impact action flicks and his direction shows it.‐ FirstShowing.net

8.5/10 82% Into the Wild (2007) With all that said, Penn's visual style is remarkable. His use of extended metaphor (McCandless is often seen eating an apple and there is a proliferation of dual jet trails from passing planes) is nice and he really captures the beauty of what McCandless‐ FirstShowing.net

6/10 90% Michael Clayton (2007) As a first time director, I have to wonder if this film suffers from a too-many-cooks mentality %u2013 two of its stars and one of its producers are all themselves award-nominated directors.‐ FirstShowing.net

5/10 23% Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) In the end though, all I can really say is that Resident Evil: Extinction is the cinematic equivalent of blue balls... and that's never good.‐ FirstShowing.net

5/10 28% Dragon Wars (2007) Sure the computer graphics are top notch, but in order to make Dragon Wars rise above the ranks of a Sci-Fi Original, we need better acting, a tighter script and, most importantly, warring dragons!‐ FirstShowing.net

6/10 51% The Kingdom (2007) It seems like the only real relationship is the one between Fluery and his Saudi counterpart, Colonel Al-Ghazi (Ashraf Barhom), but even that sincerity doesn't last long...‐ FirstShowing.net

7/10 26% Halloween (2007) ...Rob Zombie's version eliminates the moralizing over-tones and brings in a back story which tries to define, once and for all, how an American psychopath is made.‐ FirstShowing.net

6/10 20% Death Sentence (2007) What started out as a grim, realistic portrayal, devolves, by the end of almost two hours into a film with unintentional laughter and a main character who has become a parody of Charles Bronson in Death Wish...‐ FirstShowing.net

9.5/10 76% Stardust (2007) Overseeing this whole creation is Vaughn, whose sophomore outing as a feature film director is an overwhelming achievement. He leaves few moments for directorial criticism and handles the comedy with a deft hand.‐ FirstShowing.net

7/10 76% Sunshine (2007) In fact, not only is it quite beautiful to look at, for the first half it's very good. Like a lot of modern films though, it falls apart in the conclusion, mostly, I think because Boyle and Garland don't trust their audience.‐ FirstShowing.net

9/10 78% Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) David Yates respects the characters and story enough to modify it to fit into the framework of what he's trying to accomplish. Working with first time Potter writer Michael Goldenberg, the two have crafted a dark, exciting tale to entertain anyone watchin‐ FirstShowing.net

10/10 96% Ratatouille (2007) This film has heart, charm, darkness, love, wit, and just a soupcon of silliness... and all of this without the benefit of any actual actors on screen.‐ FirstShowing.net

6/10 42% No Reservations (2007) Everything that happens to the characters happens out of plot necessity, not out of any type of organic story-telling.‐ FirstShowing.net

8.5/10 44% Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007) As a sequel, it was better than the second installment in the series (something which doesn't often happen) and as a film in and of itself, it works on a number of levels.‐ FirstShowing.net

6/10 55% Eagle vs Shark (2007) By the end of the film you realize that's what it's supposed to be about but the ride to the conclusion leaves you just a little bit befuddled.‐ FirstShowing.net

7/10 71% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) When all is said and done, though, Fresnadillo and his co-writers commit the cardinal sin - underestimating the suspension of disbelief of their teen audience, let alone the adults.‐ FirstShowing.net
