Ford and Spielberg are all a little older and a little slower. But the film works because they have all retained a sense of fun... This isn't great art, just great fun.

Pulp Fiction (1994)
But what makes the film such wicked fun is the way Tarantino delivers the familiar with a twist. He continually prepares us for one thing and then delivers another.

[Bose's T.K.] is both an observer and a reluctant participant in the tragedy, and in Bose's performance we see the intellectual awakening and politicization of a young man.

Son of Rambow conveys the passion and imagination of these kids... But what the film also does is to place their fantasies in a very real context.

[Dujardin] has a goofy and endearing smile, and somehow manages to combine Sean Connery's suave appeal with the pomposity and incompetence of Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau.

...bland family fare with high end production values. It feels about as real as a Disneyland ride, and what a fantasy film needs to do is convince you of is that even the most fanciful thing in its imagined universe is absolutely real.

If you love good story telling, an intricate plot, cute young Japanese stars, and a punky shinigami, you won't find a film better than Death Note... unless it's Death Note 2.

Ready? OK! (2008)
The film works so well because it comes from something personal and you can't fake intimate details that come from life. You'll come out of this one cheering.

88 Minutes (2008)
The film had no opening credits, except for the title 88 Minutes. Maybe that's because no one wanted to take credit for this mess.

Brazil (1985)
Brazil serves up one of the most breathtakingly imaginative worlds ever to be put on screen.

Rather than being the perfect first date movie, it serves up the perfect break up film. You might just laugh till you cry... or cry until you laugh if you're the one being dumped.

As someone who has an aversion to most contemporary romantic movies, Wong is a filmmaker whose lush romanticism makes me swoon.

Duck Soup (1933)
Comic anarchy at its very best. This one just keeps getting better.

Sublime work from an old but still innovative French New Waver.

Zombie Strippers is hands - and arms, legs, feet and any other dismembered body part you have laying around - down the best comedy so far this year.

Nim's Island (2008)
I haven't felt this embarrassed for a star since Robert DeNiro donned a tutu and did the can-can in Stardust.

The Grand (2008)
The new film The Grand should have been called Werner Herzog Steals the Show because that's precisely what he does in this mockumentary about a poker tournament.

The Ruins (2008)
To sum up The Ruins, I'll quote one of the characters: "This is so not okay."

Sanders provides a rare glimpse into the world of the doctors and nurses tasked with saving lives in difficult circumstances. You cannot leave Fighting for Life without a deep sense of respect for the medical personnel and the patients.

Stop-Loss (2008)
If Gordon-Levitt (who's delivered stellar performances in Mysterious Skin and The Lookout) had been moved up from his supporting role to the lead, the film would improve considerably.

Planet B-Boy (2007)
So while I might complain about some of Lee's filmmaking choices, I feel nothing but wonder and delight at seeing these dancers excel at something they love so passionately.
