The Box (2009)
I think that Richard Kelly, from one film to the next, has gone in some very interesting and sometimes puzzling directions.

It's a disappointment.

Everyone involved seems to have had a pretty good time, but this one looks like it was more fun to make than it is to watch.

[A] dull, clumsy little movie.

No, no, no, no.

A smart little gem from Chile.

While the director, Lee Daniels, does not shy away from the grimmest elements of the story, his eclectic filmmaking style is almost exhilarating, finding room for fantasy, operatic melodrama, and authentic humor.

Everything that basically worked in Napoloeon Dynamite -- the behind-the-beat timing, the arch eccentricity -- it's all misjudged here.

It doesn't have any kind of emotional center.

The Michael Jackson we see here is not a self-styled Messiah or a tabloid oddity. He is, instead, what he always was underneath it all: a talented musician, a brilliant dancer, and one of the most gifted entertainers of his time.

I will not defend it as a good movie, but I have to say, I had a pretty good time at it.

I just felt like this was a mistranslation -- almost trying to combine the slightly sinister, cold world of Japanese anime with the warm, sentimental, fuzzy, bouncy world of Hollywood kid animation.

Motherhood (2009)
Motherhood gives upper-middle-class whining a bad name.
Posted Oct 26, 2009
14
This is one of the worst films of the year.

15
Amelia (2009)
Wwhy does such an exciting life make such a dull movie?
Posted Oct 26, 2009
16
Firth looks like he's changing his mind about being in this movie WHILE the cameras are running.
Posted Oct 19, 2009
17
Every scene is so frantic and desperate to make you laugh, to be clever, to be naughty and none of it worked.

18
Trucker (2009)
You know exactly what is going to happen and you don't really care.
Posted Oct 19, 2009

Trucker (2009)
Most of Trucker comes off like a sincere but totally artificial slice of life.

Good Hair (2009)
This movie just does take what seems like a kind of a superficial topic and really does go into it with great depth.
Posted Oct 12, 2009
21
An Education (2009)
The next Audrey Hepburn? The new Kate Winslet? British actress Carey Mulligan has drawn some pretty bold comparisons for her performance in the charming new coming of age story An Education.

I say see it, before the inevitable overhyping begins, along with the inevitable backlash.
Posted Oct 12, 2009
23
These monsters that are made of costumes with CGI faces and voiced by these wonderful actors, they're just as real and as complicated as the real people.
Posted Oct 12, 2009
24
It's bogged down in too many squishy romantic-comedy pieties.
Posted Oct 5, 2009
25
Around the halfway point when the LeBron James crew runs into some adversity beyond the socioeconomic circumstances that get short shrift in the movie, it starts getting pretty good.
Posted Oct 5, 2009
26
Zombieland (2009)
This movie is fundamentally empty.
Posted Oct 5, 2009

Coco Chanel was a lot more complicated than you'd guess from this thin slice of over-decorated cake.

Even if you don't agree with the answers that Michael Moore suggests, I think you should see this movie.
Posted Sep 28, 2009
29
I didn't think there was a minute of truth in this thing.
Posted Sep 28, 2009
30
I worry that this film is static enough and stiff enough that it's going to keep people away from discovering David Foster Wallace if they haven't read him.
Posted Sep 28, 2009
31
Tthough this experiment doesn't quite succeed, there's enough intelligence and insight in this movie to make it worth the attempt.
Posted Sep 28, 2009
32
Fame (2009)
I don't mind the cornball and I don't mind the clichés, but I just think that the thing has to be executed a little better than this.
Posted Sep 28, 2009
33
Blind Date (2009)
Behind all the role playing is a movie that feels uncertain in its tone and style, more exercise than drama.
Posted Sep 21, 2009
34
Blind Date (2009)
It does feel very stage bound, very formal.
Posted Sep 21, 2009

By the end you're left with a question worth asking: What is the best way to put your ideals on the line in any country, in any era?
Posted Sep 15, 2009
36
Very good, very smart, very clear.
Posted Sep 15, 2009

RJ Cutler had plenty of access, but it's pretty clear that from start to finish it was Anna Wintour who was in control of this movie.

Whiteout (2009)
Where are the penguins?

Whiteout (2009)
A stupid thriller.
Posted Sep 15, 2009

Despite the cast, which is very good, you never feel like they're really taking on a life of their own.
Posted Sep 15, 2009
41
It owes its air of mystery to a piece of narrative trickery that's both obnoxiously manipulative and insultingly obvious.
Posted Sep 15, 2009
42
It's not really a who-done-it, it's more of a when'd-ya-guess-it and a who-cares.
Posted Sep 8, 2009
43
In The Burning Plain we follow three-or maybe four-different stories that ultimately converge in ways that are both utterly predictable and completely preposterous.
Posted Sep 8, 2009
44
It's dreadful.
Posted Sep 8, 2009
45
Big Fan (2009)
It's a modest, drab little drama about a psychologically unstable guy living in a sad little corner of America.
Posted Sep 8, 2009

Big Fan (2009)
[Oswalt] is doing work here he has never done on screen.

Extract (2009)
There are so many good jokes packed in there.
