Sin Nombre (2009)
While this Mexican import is treading familiar territory, first time writer/director Cary Fukunaga comes at it with fresh eyes.

What this is, in fact, is the live-action version of the opening of The Lion King, celebrating the 'circle of life.'

While slickly done, it is so patently absurd that a more appropriate reaction ought to be not disgust but a shaking of the head and a muttering of, 'Are you kidding?'

3.5/4
While there's plenty of great action set pieces, including the climactic showdown at a nuclear power plant, this is a movie in which we actually care about the characters.

...a dispiriting exercise in ultra-violence that even the gorehounds will find disappointing...

3.5/4
...the first really memorable film of 2009, and clearly the most fun.

Knowing (2009)
If... you want your 'sense of wonder' piqued, and are willing to contemplate some big and possibly alien concepts, this takes you to some unexpected places.

The problem is that its premise is absurd and its execution is ridiculous. However, if you've just come from a fraternity kegger you will no doubt find it hilarious.

...a disposable horror film, made in hopes that some reputable actors might breathe life into the material.

If you've enjoyed this ride before, you'll enjoy it again. If you think the actors don't have quite the emotional range of the vehicles they're driving, you probably won't.

Eisenberg and Stewart end up making the most heartbreakingly honest couple we may see on screen all year.

...all the excitement of a corporate report combined with the liveliness of a stuffed animal.

...a much better film than might be expected, even if it turns out to be as superficial as this season's scarf or handbag.

Watchmen (2009)
...a fascinating film likely to reward repeated viewings, but just as likely to be discovered on DVD than in the theaters.

In the hands of Kristin Scott Thomas it becomes the story of one woman's struggle with the events of her life...

Fired Up (2009)
Fired Up! is the teen sex comedy done right. It's fresh, it's funny, and you won't feel like you need a shower after watching it.

Perhaps it's finally time to let Clouseau retire. If the movies can't generate laughs, there's really no point to them at all.

Coraline (2009)
Coraline proves dazzling on the surface, but in the end that's all it is.

Taken (2009)
...the sort of action film that you watch with glee and then hate yourself for doing so. Call it the year's first guilty pleasure.

a less than exciting Hollywood debut for co-directors... "The Guard Brothers." The Coens and the Wachowskis do not have to start worrying yet.

The Wrestler (2008)
Rourke's performance is worth the price of admission... It's a portrait of a man's life, and one you won't soon forget.

4/4
Frost/Nixon (2008)
Langella's Nixon is a tragic figure... Langella doesn't so much make him sympathetic as show us the flawed personality trying to avoid blaming himself for his failure.

...a silly film that exists primarily as a vehicle for James... this marks the emergence of a comedy star who may get to fulfill the promise he shows here in films to come.

Defiance (2009)
{T]here was nothing that would have led anyone to predict the Bielskis could accomplish what they did. That they did so may be the true miracle...

So, here's the deal. Don't send us any more Chandni Chowk movies, and we won't send you anything with Adam Sandler.

Gran Torino (2009)
It's interesting to note that [Eastwood's] still going strong at 78. What's even more interesting is that the last two decades includes some of the finest work of his career.

Bride Wars (2009)
The resolution of the film's dilemma is not only absurd and unbelievable, but is further humiliating to the two actresses.

The Spirit (2008)
...it's a visual feast, with every image lovingly framed and lit (and mixed with special effects) so that there's always something interesting to look at.

Doubt (2008)
Doubt lets you make up your mind [about the plot] if you insist on certainty, but the point of the story is that there really isn't any.

Marley & Me (2008)
As someone who has actually gone through the procedure depicted with a beloved pet, this reviewer didn't shed a single tear at the end.

It has a lot going for it, but it never quite comes together into a satisfying whole.

[It] isn't the last word on this chapter of music history... but with great music and solid performances, it's good place to start.
