Fine version of classic horror/love story/tragedy...minus music, of course.

Invincible (2006)
Produced by Mark Ciardi ['The Rookie,' 'Miracles'], the fact-based 'Invincible' goes for touchdown. It is a formula movie that works.

Go West (1925)
One of Buster's best, which means one of cinema comedy's best.

Alien Nation (1988)
Fascinating and somewhat timely themed sci-fi flick, a minor classic.

The whole of the movie is rough edged cruel. Main characters, including Ricky, are ignoble back stabbers.

Top praise should go to Stone. After the overblown failure 'Alexander,' he made a wise decision to shoot an up close and personal script. Less proves definitely more.

One of Hitch's best from his '50s period...and his only one with a hit song ("Que Sera").

So well animated, voiced, written, and directed, it defines itself as one of the best animated flicks this summer, rightfully standing beside 'Monster House' and 'Cars.'

All 'Lady in the Water' lacks is a narrator ending the tale with 'and they lived happily ever after.' This is a Shyamalan flick?

The script does not wear so well, dragging along for stretches. Reeves, in his usual sullen delivery way, does not help take up the slack.

The pace is grueling...as the many sword fighting sequences clang on and on. Even battling gigantic tentacles becomes a yawner after the 45th pirate is squeezed.

Our caped hero does not turn the world backwards to relive time, but much of director Bryan Singer's film is lifted from the 1978 Richard Donner version.

Click (2006)
Michael never thinks big like changing mankind for the good. He would rather click-freeze a guy and pull down his pants to embarrass him. THAT's a Sandler laugh.

Nacho Libre (2006)
The camera languishes on sequences like Nacho rubbing cow manure into Esqueleto's face. Jokes like these are nacho good, nacho funny.
