Appeals equally to fans of no-holds-barred gross-out movies and those looking for something more intelligent. It's hilarious, surprisingly perceptive, and even sweet.

The Hard Way (1991)
Along with some good laughs, there's also a bit of effective tension.

Smart, fascinating and horrifying, All the King's Men is an example of late 1940s filmmaking at its best.

The 1980s were not a particularly inspired era, so it's appropriate that a middling romantic comedy like this one would earn the title of quintessential movie of the decade.

Exciting and compelling, but even more than that, it's a great acting showcase for Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou.

Lucky You (2007)
An empty shell of a film, devoid of heart and soul, leaving us to wonder how in the world this movie ever got released.

The Ex (2007)
It's the smart dialogue and plain old darn witty ideas at the core of this film that lift it above the average Hollywood comedy.

While parallels with the Iraq situation are unmistakeable, it's more concerned with terrifyingly dismal atmosphere and a kinetic, intense race for survival.

Rather talky, but a reasonably solid cop show and a neat little window onto the world of 1960s America.

You have to admire Jean-Pierre Melville's ambition to make a sophisticated "b-movie" that is moody, intelligent and consistently engaging.

Mike White has had the courage to redirect his abundant quirkiness away from benign nerdiness and toward a quiet subversiveness.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
It continues to use secondary characters brilliantly, allowing them to add depth and humour to the proceedings.

Creepshow 3 (2006)
Of zero interest to true horror movie fans, and certainly will bore those looking for quality cinema. It will, however, provide a giggle or two to bad movie aficionados.

Babel (2006)
Smart, interesting to look at, and courageous, this is one of the best films of 2006.

Leaves out too much of the story to really work. Why are these people doing what they're doing? If I hadn't seen the 1949 version first, I would not have known.

Sofia Coppola has sacrificed a compelling storyline in exchange for aimless atmospherics.

Next (2007)
Think of Groundhog Day with guns and car chases. And without humour.

The Departed (2006)
Sometimes accused of failing to harness the kinetic energy that abounds in his films, Martin Scorsese has done such a fine job of balancing the heat and the cold here.

We need to remind ourselves that Hollywood makes dreck like this for the same reason that caterpillars lay a zillion eggs.

A decent film that doesn't occupy a single neat genre category, and often doesn't seem able to decide who it's trying to speak to.

Fracture (2007)
About as fresh and original as the old "Oh, he's got a long lost twin brother nobody knew about" trick.

Disturbia (2007)
A good old fashioned tension-laden thrill ride that's as satisfying for an old Hitchcock fan as it is for the Scary Movie set.

Heights (2005)
An intelligent and perceptive film, neither unique nor earth-shattering, but still worthwhile.

Ask the Dust (2006)
Donald Sutherland saunters onscreen, momentarily raising the level of the film, before he ambles back out the door and things sink back down to the listless and pointless pace that typifies this jumbled mess of a movie.

What really solidifies the greatness of The Grapes of Wrath is Ford's ability to blend the personal and political without causing damage to either characters or themes.

A thriller with a brain, a grown up film for grown ups
