Blood Diamond (2006)

Bobby (2006)

"A document to the idealistic spirit of RFK's times. Estevez, in a trifecta as director-screenwriter-star, brilliantly succeeds in all aspects."

Babel (2006)

"Except for the rather contrived Tokyo link, 'Babel' is as good as 'Crash.' It is definitely worth seeing, but take a deep breath first."

Open Season (2006)

"Disney never showed, say, Goofy actually defecating on camera, but 'Open Season' does just that with Eliott. And an entire scene is built around Boog's having a b.m."
