Even though it's only August, I'm not going out on a limb when I say that "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" is one of the best films of the year.

2.5/4
More thriller than horror movie, "Skeleton Key" is the latest in a brood of PG-13-rated so-called horror movies developed to draw in the junior-high and high-school crowd.

Don't expect to see John Wayne's swagger in the urbanized rendition of "The Sons of Katie Elder."

Despite its stars, despite its premise, and despite the presence of cute canines, "Must Love Dogs" is the most bland romantic comedy of the summer. Possibly of the year.

Stealth (2005)
More of a flying turkey than a tale of airborne action, "Stealth" begins to nosedive moments from its liftoff until it spirals out of control about half-way through.

Sky High (2005)
I anticipated going to this movie with a dread that was nearly "Sky High." But what a pleasant surprise!

ts title is deceptively adult. "Mad Hot Ballroom" actually is a mesmerizing story, of all things, about dancing fifth-graders.

Wow. The challenges of reviewing an NC-17 movie for a family newspaper are, um, challenging.

If ever a documentary was worth waiting 10 years to see, then "Villisca: Living with a Mystery," is it.

Almost as miraculous as the birds on which is focuses, March of the Penguins is an astonishing gem of a documentary.

I have come close to walking out on four movies in my 18 years of reviewing. "The Devil's Rejects" is one of them.

The Island (2005)
About half-way through The Island I realized what had happened: Director Michael Bay just plain went nuts behind the camera.

Strange and beautiful, "Howl's Moving Castle" is the latest anime offering from Hayao Miyazaki.

As a successor to the original, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is a pleasant enough concoction.

Fantastic? Uh ... hardly. "Fantastic Four" was No. 1 at the box office because of a good old-fashioned advertising campaign.

Dark Water (2005)
Almost as murky as its title "Dark Water" earns an average rating amidst other - and mostly lesser - PG-13-rated horror movies.

Rebound (2005)
Why would such a talent as Martin Lawrence make a totally useless, inane movie? I'm guessing that, as usual, money talks.

Everybody wins with "War of the Worlds," a fast-paced summer blockbuster that will appeal to action, sci-fi and drama fans.

Sometimes a movie is so perfectly awful it deserves a perfectly shaped rating: "Zero."

You don't need to know a grind from an ollie to appreciate "The Lords of Dogtown," the story of the birth of modern skateboarding culture.

I couldn't find enough superlatives to describe "Cinderella Man," an astonishing film that's simply perfect.

A guy who would dress up like a bat, as Christian Bale says, "has issues." Does he ever. And we become acquainted with many of them in this incarnation of the Caped Crusader.

"The Honeymooners" is a good-natured movie that's not so much a remake as a nod to the old television series.

Whale Rider (2003)
"Whale Rider" is a mystical, gentle movie that goes beyond the boundaries of the usual coming-of-age film.

No, it's not a "one size fits all" film. But "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" is just the right size for so many audiences.

Millions (2005)
I hesitate to say that this is a family film. That phrase too often conjures up, at least for adults, cutesy-poo animated features aimed squarely at the younger set.

I cried for two reasons. First, because, after nearly 30 years, it's finished. Yes, the series will be out in 3-D. But this is the finale of what George Lucas began in 1977.

For what it is -- another stalk 'n' slash -- "Mindhunters" has a few moments of intelligence.

A sort of adult fable, "Unleashed" is Jet Li's finest American release so far.

House of Wax (2005)
OK, guys, let's just cut to the chase: Paris Hilton does not bare all in "House of Wax." That said, the show isn't as awful as I had anticipated.

Clever, if not cutting-edge, Woody Allen's "Melinda and Melinda" examines whether we interpet life as a comedy or tragedy.

There's only one reason I'm giving this three stars, and that's Jane Fonda, whose talent is, well, monstrous.

Crash (2004)
Believe it or not, this is a lot like "Pooh's Heffalump Movie." It's just that the demographic age of the audience is vastly different.
