Inglourious Basterds (2009)
The Brothers Bloom (2009)
"The most wondrous film of it's kind since E.T. The Extra Terrestrial touched down."
The Bucket List (2007)
"Despite the AARP factor, audiences of all types will probably love this film for what it says about our own mortality and how we handle it."
There Will Be Blood (2007)
"A masterpiece from Paul Thomas Anderson. You won't be able to shake it off. Daniel Day Lewis delivers a chilling portrait of greed. He can be charming, cunning, terrifying and pathetic -- sometimes all at once. This is a landmark performance."
"With more white powder than even Al Pacino's nose housed in 'Scarface', Steep pushes human endurance and achievement to the limit with indescribable eye-popping crazy feats of Big Mountain glory."
P.S. I Love You (2007)
"If you're looking for a great date movie so you can get laid over the holidays, this is the one."
"Unparalleled visual splendor, a bloody red-velvet fever dream of a musical for people who think they HATE musicals."
"Even though it's wildly unbelievable and rather hokey at times, this is total entertainment from start to finish."
Charlie Wilson's War (2007)
"You'll want to stand up and cheer for Charlie Wilson, a smart and absolutely irresistable true tale about a guy who dared to make a difference."
"After 'Superbad' and 'Knocked Up', Judd Apatow has now pulled off the movie equivalent of the Triple Crown."
The Great Debaters (2007)
"An absolute triumph for Denzel Washington. Here is a movie that can make a difference. What more can you ask from a film?"
"This chick-lit flick is an 'English Patient' style epic."
"It brings up lots of questions to ponder and mostly succeeds as a fascinating, if frightening statement on the way we are."
The Kite Runner (2007)
Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007)
"Kids at the preview screening ate it up but everyone else will probably be shouting 'ALVIN!!! SHUT THE F*** UP!'""
I Am Legend (2007)
"Mind-blowing excitement, an expert thriller that really thrills and makes you think. A special shout-out for the dog, Sam. Now that's acting!"
Grace Is Gone (2007)
"Incredibly John Cusack has never been nominated for an Academy Award but this movie may change that. He's simply terrific in a fine and moving film."
The Golden Compass (2007)
"Like Lord Of The Rings and Chronicles Of Narnia it's a visual feast that transports you to an alternate world of jaw-dropping awe, unforgettable images and pure adventure."
"A psychological thriller that focuses more on the 'psycho' than the 'logical' for its own good. But who says everything has to make sense when you're just trying to blow a few brains out?"
"Tough to watch? Sure. Worth it? Absolutely. Perhaps the most inspiring film in many years."
The Savages (2007)
"The film successfully navigates the tricky waters of family dysfunction. A savagely funny/tragic/hopeful portrait of the way we are circa 2007."
"The filmmakers of Awake have crafted a domestic thriller that just may end up putting you ASLEEP."
"This motion-capture animated version is genuinely exciting to see although the process still gives us the creeps."
"It's a shame that with the vast canvas of this seemingly never-ending conflict that this crap is the image De Palma wants to convey."
Margot at the Wedding (2007)
"A wry, devastatingly witty look at a family you won't soon forget, no matter how hard you try."
"It's so 'G' you almost want to gag, but its heart is in the right place. Take a kid or take a pass."
"Its success is largely due to the casting of Amy Adams who is simply sensational. She weaves some serious movie magic into this thing."
August Rush (2007)
"It can be admired for trying something a little different from the usual family film, but in the end, it just doesn't work. At all."
I'm Not There (2007)
"Cate Blanchett has delivered the most audacious, astounding and entertaining performance of the year by ANYONE, male or female."
The Mist (2007)
"Film adaptations of King's work tend to be hit and miss, but with last summer's '1408' and now this scary-as-hell flick, he's on a roll."
"It delivers top-notch action, dazzling gunplay and lots of fireworks. What more could we ask for?"
"A remarkably well-detailed doc that proves 'Rock The Casbah' is not just that song from the cell phone commercials."
Martian Child (2007)
"John Cusack is perfect but it's Bobby Coleman who delivers one of the most uniquely original kid performances ever. You actually believe he might be from Mars."
No Country for Old Men (2007)
"A great American film. A dark and sometimes bleakly comic vision of our violent culture."
Fred Claus (2007)
"A ho-ho-hum yuletide comedy trying to shoehorn Vaughn's fast talking wise-guy brand into a warm and fuzzy Christmas confection that seems like it has been focus-grouped to smithereens."
Lions for Lambs (2007)
"Agree or disagree, love it or hate it, you won't be able to turn away. It's Robert Redford's urgent, impassioned wake up call for America."
"Just in time for the holidays comes this vile exercise in yuletide terror. On the plus side Rachel Nichols gets to run around in a slip most of the time."
Bee Movie (2007)
"Seinfeld, what happened? You've gone soft on us. Sure, some of it is fun but where's the sting?"
American Gangster (2007)
"It marks a return to the lost art of true storytelling, every bit as epic as 'The Godfather' and just as fascinating to see."
Rails & Ties (2007)
"It's closer to a small kind of affecting and simply human story we rarely get to see in mainstream movies anymore."
"It has been exactly 50 years since Sidney Lumet made his first movie but let's hope on the basis of this shattering edge-of-your-seat stuff that he hasn't made his last."
Dan in Real Life (2007)
"Finally a really smart, really funny movie about the ups and downs of life, love and family."
Reservation Road (2007)
"A powerful human drama that rips into you like a hurricane. Suspenseful, emotional and completely engrossing throughout."
"A political potboiler guaranteed to get your heart racing. It pushes all the buttons these kinds of suspenseful dramas usually do."
