The Next Three Days (2010)
Chasing Amy (1997)
127 Hours (2010)
"Sometimes Cortes gets carried away with his "angry little film criticizing the world", but hell, when you’re stuck making a movie in a box, it’s easy to see why you’d want to stand up, raise your arms and yell as loud as possible."
Let Me In (2010)
The Social Network (2010)
The Town (2010)
I'm Still Here (2010)
The American (2010)
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
The Bicycle Thief (1949)
American Beauty (1999)
"The flaws that exist in American Beauty are effortlessly overcome by a cast that blossoms. Spacey in particular exhibits a rare wit and gravitas with Lester's weary frowns and cutting smirks, proving his mettle in this career peak performance."
"Truffaut brought a fresh and piercingly honest portrayal of troubled youth to the screen. In many ways, Antonie Doinel is not only the cinematic embodiment of Truffaut, but also the French New Wave as a whole. "
"Closer is no joke and it's got the brave, mature performances of an all-star cast to prove it. It's a movie in which characters feel each other up with their hands and knock each other down with words."
A History of Violence (2005)
The Conformist (1970)
Rear Window (1954)
"In this brilliant movie about watching the neighbors, Alfred Hitchcock turns the lens on his audience. "We have become a race of Peeping Toms," notes one character not only commenting on Jeff's obsessive voyeurism but also that of the cinematic spectator."
Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
"Alfie (Michael Caine) is more than just a perpetual bachelor; he's a ladies' man, a cad, a man about town. Put bluntly: Alfie loves to have sex. He meets women and takes what he wants from them: pleasure. But behind him, Alfie is leaving a trail of misery"
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
"Saving Private Ryan set a new benchmark for realism in WWII films, and defined war movies for a generation. A film of scope and vision rarely experienced, its award-winning cinematography and sound editing helped convey the blood-chilling images of"
Old School (2003)
"Mitch (Luke Wilson) has just been cheated on and moved into a nice new bachelor pad right near the local college. But when threatened with eviction by the dean of the college, Mitch's buddies Beanie (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Ferrell) suggest that the"
La Dolce Vita (1960)
"Along with his later 8 1/2, La Dolce Vita is regarded as one of acclaimed Italian director Federico Fellini's best-loved and most influential films. The '60s-set tale of one man's struggle with the so-called "sweet life" stars Marcello Mastroi"
The Wolfman (2010)
"The Wolfman boasts a solid principal cast from Del Toro to Hopkins and up-and-comer Emily Blunt, but Del Toro especially seems to be going through the motions at half speed, as if waiting for the beast and the stuntmen to take it from there. Only H"
A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010)
"Though it can sometimes feel like a prisoner in its own genre, moving in the same direction as several crime dramas before it, director Jacques Audiard, avoids cliche and grandstanding, and gives A Prophet the intelligence and artistic flair to cha"
Dear John (2010)
"The one saving grace is some decent work by the always reliable Richard Jenkins as John's father. Truthfully, the only real appeal there would be for a guy going to see this film is the possibility that it will earn him points with the girl who dragged hi"
"A decade after its release, P.T. Anderson's emotionally epic Magnolia gets the glorious Blu-ray treatment it deserves. This Altman-esque mosaic follows several disparate L.A. citizens on one rainy day, as they navigate through mistakes and torrenti"
44 Inch Chest (2010)
"When faced with his wife's infidelity, Colin (Ray Winstone) enlists his gang of aging pub-crawlers to kidnap, torture and (possibly) kill her younger lover. 44 Inch Chest takes the typical British gangster film and turns it into a David Mamet-ish c"
The Book of Eli (2010)
"Denzel Washington deserves equal credit for this, delivering his best Man with No Name impression as a Bible-thumping hero in a much more literal sense, one who delivers bloody vengeance in lieu of sermons. Though these types of roles are far more demandi"
"Lost are Fellini's autobiographical nuances, the deep philosophical and psychoanalytical ramblings, the artistic construction of identity, and the very film specific deconstruction at play. They even scrap the circus! It just makes you wonder what the poi"
"As impressive and as wild as Gilliam's acid-laced visuals can be -- and yes, they are often stunning and hilarious -- it's not enough to keep us engaged in a movie with a plot that spins circles around our heads and characters who are really nothing more"
"Despite its title, Sheridan's film is less concerned with sibling rivalry (romantic or otherwise) and more with post-traumatic stress disorder -- which would be fine if it had anything particularly new or profound to add to the conversation. Unfortunately"
Everybody's Fine (2009)
"To dismiss Everybody's Fine as clichéd holiday schmaltz is to stereotype without appreciating the finer details. Clearly working within an established genre without the gall to overstep his boundaries, Jones elevates the material by showing conside"
Up in the Air (2009)
"Though it's far from perfect, Up in the Air is without a doubt Jason Reitman's most mature film to date. In other words, it's his least flawed. A filmmaker who is certainly in tune with his generation, Reitman gives prominent roles to Blackberry an"
Fight Club (1999)
"The last great male-centric movie of the last millennium just arrived on a spectacular new Blu-ray disc for its 10th anniversary, providing the opportunity to relish every aspect of David Fincher's ultimate dissection of Gen-X masculinity. Fight Club"
"A movie that ultimately has more cult than mass appeal, how much you enjoy Bad Lieutenant will probably come down to how much you like Werner Herzog rather than Nicolas Cage. A notoriously eccentric director, his latest film is nowhere near as mainstream"
The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
"If you're not a teenage girl or don't swoon at the sight of Robert Pattinson or a shirtless Taylor Lautner, then surprise, New Moon wasn't made for you. An event movie for girls in the same way every Michael Bay movie is a guilty pleasure for guys, there'"
A Single Man (2009)
"The clothes, the cars, the furniture -- Los Angeles of the early '60s offers Ford a chance to be gleefully fetishistic about his set pieces, embracing a moment when modern design had reached an undeniable apex. Falconer lives in a glass-and-timber Neutra-"
The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)
