      Smokin' Aces (2007) It's instantly engrossing, stays great for about 45 minutes and good for another 20, then begins collapsing under the oppressive weight of taking itself very, very seriously. - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

      Pan's Labyrinth (2006) I saw better films in 2006 -- but none more imaginative than Guillermo del Toro's communal masterpiece. Bring a friend, and you'll have plenty to talk about. - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

      The Queen (2006) The remarkable achievement is not just in Helen Mirren's performance -- but in the sly, often almost imperceptible observations of how violently worlds can collide with a fleeting word, a subtle gesture. - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

      Thr3e (2007) I've seen films that said nothing in entertaining, even compelling ways. 'Thr3e' is not one of them. At least it's not wholesome too. - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

      The Descent (2005) In a genre where misogyny runs as a matter of course, 'The Descent' is a true rarity: a feminist horror film. It's Ida Lupino kicking Brian De Palma right in the junk. - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
