What an astonishing, well-made historical drama.

Jarhead (2005)
Don't walk in to "Jarhead" and expect to see an editorial for or against war. This isn't that kind of movie.

Well, it doesn't quite lay an egg. But it's nothing that will make even chicken scratches in the history of Disney, even though it's in 3-D.

Zathura (2005)
Here's a space mess that's all show with very little go.

Does a movie need a plot to move it along? Not necessarily. Look at "Lost in Translation," for example. And "The Weather Man."

Prime (2005)
Well, I'm still not sure why this movie is called "Prime." But regardless of its title, it's an enjoyable, intelligent romantic comedy that has its share of drama, too.

Yes, "The Legend of a Zorro" is a cartoon, with bad guys that are oh-so-bad and heroes who are larger than life.

Saw II (2005)
If you saw the first "Saw," you'll want to see "Saw II," too.

Even after 18 years of seeing every movie that plays here, I'm still surprised by some films. I even gave this one conflicting ratings.

3.5/4
Sometimes a story is so timeless that it deserves to be told again. Such a story is "North Country," a fictionalized account of events in the 1980s at a mine in the Midwest.

Stay (2005)
OK, all you folks who loved the bizarre "Mulholland Drive" as much as I did. You're in for another mind-boggling, brain-teasing treat.

Doom (2005)
Well...I've seen worse. And that's about the only recommendation I can make for "Doom," yet another movie that's based on a video game.

Domino (2005)
"Domino" is the latest in the "what were they thinking?" category of movies that should have been documentaries.

The Fog (2005)
Yes, there's "something in 'The Fog,'" all right. Another weekend of low box office proceeds and more dismal reviews for yet another unnecessary, poorly made remake.

Proof (2005)
Here's an interesting, sometimes frustrating, film about who really wrote a mathematical proof and how it affects those involved in the mystery.

I don't know what this film should have been called, but I think that the title "Two for the Money" is misleading.

Here's a dramatic version of a familiar story with a contemporary spin and fantastic music.

Ew. "Waiting" longs to shock its audience. And does.

If you want your beefcake and cheesecake served up against an ocean setting, you'll get "Into the Blue," a decent thriller with lots of skin, sharks and sun.

It took me about 45 minutes into "Just Like Heaven" to figure out just exactly what it is: A contemporary retelling of "Sleeping Beauty."

I'm going to bet that Bill Paxton loves golf. Because, despite his deftly directed "Frailty," "The Greatest Game Ever Played" rolls all over the place.

Flightplan (2005)
Strange. "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" takes off. "Flightplan" stinks. You'd think it would be the other way around.

Lasse Hallström, who also directed the amazing "The Cider House Rules," has created a film that takes its time, that allows you savor it rather than gulp it down.

I'm not sure how to define an art film any more. But I do know that Jim Jarmusch's latest, "Broken Flowers,' is an art film, and it's out-arted itself right out of an ending.

The Man (2005)
Whenever I see cruddy movies such as "The Man," I figured that the actors either owed somebody a favor or signed a contract.

"The Constant Gardener" fairly blooms with award potential in a lush, serious romance that's also a political thriller.

Why, oh why, would Nick Cannon, star of the perfectly marvelous (but too-little seen) "Drumline" star in this tasteless mess? Did success go to this young actor's head?

The Cave (2005)
Movies such as "The Cave" are one of the reasons that box office proceeds are plummeting in record numbers.

would be too easy to make a pun out of the title "The Brothers Grimm," because its a fair description of the atmosphere of the film itself.

And here I thought this movie had a dumb-sounding title. Despite that, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" is a hilarious sex comedy that's smart, charming and sweet.

Rob Schneider serves up a veritable buffet of tastelessness in "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalo."
