It plays like Cliff's Notes of the political themes Romero has already explored more effectively with his other movies.

Cloverfield (2008)
The POV [camera] IS the movie...and we get to see lots of angles of the monster. On that point, it totally delivers.

Any towering institution is capable of producing monsters, even if none of them are as far removed from human frailty as Plainview [Day-Lewis] and his pitiable nemesis [Dano].

This genius collaboration between director of photography Janusz Kaminski and Schnabel immerses you in Bauby's situation so that it becomes your reality.

Reilly is fantastic, the music is right on, and the commentary is obnoxiously accurate, so while Walk Hard may not go to 11, it's definitely worth a seven or an eight.

It's like Dario Argento blood just spurting everywhere...

2.5/4
[It's]a satire of the second Cold War and clueless American politics, while also celebrating the comparatively loose morals and naiveté of the greed decade.

I Am Legend (2007)
The third act is where it finally, fatally trips itself up. A couple of key revelations seem like they are leading somewhere and suddenly, the film is over.

...rushed like crazy, from one scene to another, introducing characters, spouting [forced] dialogue.

It is exhibitionist cinema for the post-Crash era, designed to tell us what we already know and somehow stir us out of our apathy simultaneously.

Scott presents the mob leader as a beaten-down minority who finally gets his due, but not without a serious look at the consequences.

Gilroy has crafted a smart thriller that revolves around a corporate cover-up but doesn't burrow into hair-splitting details and stays away from cliché.

This may take place in the insular world of men who spend too much time in front of dimly-lit video screens, but that does not make this very un-Homeric struggle for glory any less engaging.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
Though it has no real characters and a completely nonsensical plot, it is a welcome respite from other uber-violent movies like 300 that are itself parodies and don't even realize it.

3:10 to Yuma (2007)
What Mangold had crafted is like a classic western in theme, but it resembles a modern movie in its pace and its complicated, multi-layered characterizations.

In a successful comedy of manners, the screenwriter and director are supposed to build the carefully lain plot to a frenzied fever pitch. Between Craig's lackluster script and Oz's tepid direction, its gait never gets beyond that of an elderly mallwalker.

Rush Hour 3 (2007)
You've got to hand it to Brett Ratner. He knows how to make a formula comedy breeze by in an efficient 90 minutes.

[It is] in the unique and unfair position of having a lot to live up to, and The Simpsons Movie is not quite up to the task.

Talk to Me (2007)
For all the wild controversy that Petey ignited in his time, Talk to Me ends up being as generic and watered-down as its title.

Once (2007)
Casting musicians rather than actors proves to be a wise choice because their interplay is completely naturalistic. All of the musical interaction is authentic and, by extention, so is their entire relationship.

As the number of pages gets higher, the movies are having a tougher time squeezing them all into one cohesive narrative.
