Syriana (2005)
Interesting and worth watching, despite the fact that complete comprehension of the film seems just beyond the reach of the viewer.

.5/4
Suspect Zero (2004)
Essentially an X-files episode that wishes it were as disturbing and visually arresting as David Fincher's Seven (it's not).

3.5/4
Underscores the need for individuals to take responsibility for their own health, and it does so in a frequently humorous and self-deprecating way. Plenty of food for thought.

2.5/4
As comedies go, it's actually fairly funny, albeit in a light, superficial way which either hides or exposes the fact that the plot is a thick tangle of mutual contradictions.

Stealth (2005)
Neither entertaining nor exciting, the dumb and noisy Stealth will hopefully live up to its name by fading quietly from movie theaters.

Stay (2005)
Ultimately the film delivers such a weak payoff that it makes nearly everything that came before it seem rather pointless.

2.5/4
It's back to the drawing board for the TV show's creators, who have previously proven themselves capable of much better than this soggy and waterlogged miscalculation.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Hands down the best comic book franchise on film.

Spartan (2004)
A tight and engrossing mystery thriller.

Spanglish (2004)
While the content isn't always pretty, the lessons are important. And, Brooks, thankfully, isn't afraid to face these themes, ugliness and all.

1.5/4
The film is full of rumbling sounds that will make your innards tremble (at least in some theaters). But that's about all it has going for it.

2.5/4
Sky High (2005)
Sky High is adolescent, in the best, age-appropriate sense of the word; it's like a John Hughes movie, but for tweens.

3.5/4
Director Kerry Conran hasn't just mimicked his favorite serials and comic books. He's written a love letter to the full scope of 1930s and '40s films by basically making one.

Pretty much what you would expect from the screenwriter of disappointing films such as Scream 3, Reindeer Games and Arlington Road.

3/4
Four friends on a quest to find something, only to realize that anything resembling an answer is to be found in the journey itself, in their friendships, and in themselves.

Sin City (2005)
The world Miller and Rodriguez have created is so bleak and nasty it's difficult to see what lasting value any sort of redemption could have here.

Sideways (2004)
The year's second best movie about broken and lonely people (after Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).

Shopgirl (2005)
Claire Danes has a gravitas and grace to her that hearkens back to starlets of the 1930s and '40s.

Shark Tale (2004)
Want a good fish story? Watch Finding Nemo again instead

2.5/4
The 1996 original is classier, deeper, more poignant. A Ginger Rogers to this Beyoncé.

The Sentinel (2006)

2/4
This is, in short, a mystery story that has very little actual mystery.

2.5/4
Lions will appeal to a more mature audience because of the solid acting duo of Caine and Duvall. It will also appeal to children because of its almost mythological feel.

The film is worth seeing, but only if you're prepared to set aside your aversion to its polemic in order to experience its compassion.

Pacino shapes the role masterfully. He not only rises to the role's extremes of villainous melodrama, he fills them, rendering them both theatrical and believable

Freedomland (2006)

2.5/4
Les Choristes isn't quite as forced and syrupy as Mr. Holland's Opus or Music of the Heart, but it's not a classic like To Sir with Love or Goodbye, Mr. Chips either.

Doom (2005)
Doom is irritating enough to make you blow off some steam by spending a couple hours gunning down demons.

You could pass on both Scooby Doo films unless you really have nothing else to do one day. And I mean nothing.

A film with two opposite interpretations to its title -- figuratively sad, literally joyful.

Saved! (2004)
Saved! could have been a challenging but affirming movie about the evangelical subculture -- if handled with the same love, acceptance and tolerance it preaches.

Saint Ralph (2005)
For the jaded moviegoer, here's a little film that just might restore your faith -- in movies and a whole lot more.

Sahara (2005)
Vapid, lengthy, and mostly lifeless -- kind of like the desert it's named for.

Rumor Has It (2005)
The movie shines when allowing the characters to just exist in their world together, without the forced and tired romantic comedy plot weighing on them.

A technical mess. The final version looks like an unfinished cut.

Rock School (2005)
Watching the students band together to rock -- and the faces of the audience and participants when they realize what these kids are capable of -- is a joy.

Robots (2005)
A fun ride with plenty of laughs, excitement and touching moments about living out your dreams no matter your make, model or build.

1.5/4
Just because a film is about the undead, that doesn't mean the film itself has to feel like it was made by the undead or for the undead.

Rent (2005)
For all the big themes Rent deals with -- love, death, injustice, community -- it still seems a bit superficial

Ray (2004)
The directing is sure-handed, the script intelligent, and the acting strong, especially the amazing performance from Foxx.

Racing Stripes never pulls ahead of the pack, but it's good for a few laps around the track.
