Soul Power (2009)
This has no contextual structure at all. It is essentially the archive footage slapped together.

I do think this is a film worth seeing, so obviously, I say see it.

Local Color (2006)
I suspect Local Color will lose those unfamiliar with the jargon and subtleties of the art world. Skip it.

Certainly not terrible, but ultimately forgettable and that means you should skip it.

Everyone who's ever seen a movie knows where this is headed... but getting there is breezy, fun, and most importantly, well-executed.

It was a perfect blend of satire and tension.

Afghan Star (2009)
If you think American Idol is a cultural phenomenon here, imagine its impact on a country devastated by 30 years of internal strife, religious intolerance, civil war and foreign invasion.

Chéri (2009)
Michelle Pfeiffer is quite good, but the script leaves Kathy Bates -- talented as she is -- with a bit of a cartoonish performance.

Outstanding performances across the board, but I thought Anthony Mackie in particular really, really nailed it.

It is as if Michael Bay was saying "You think I've blown stuff up before? Ha-ha. Wait till you see this."

I have a heart. I just don't want schlock.

It's consistently very funny, sharp and observant.

Surveillance (2009)
When Surveillance is good, it's a gory, pleasurable ride. When it's not -- it's just gory. But more often than not, it delivers on the camp.

Year One (2009)
[Year One has] some very funny moments but not enough of them.

Washington demonstrates his really remarkable ability to make us forget he's a movie star and completely believe he's a flawed but noble civil servant.

Food, Inc. (2009)
A powerful, muckraking documentary on the big business of what we eat.

Imagine That (2009)
This is a fairly likable family comedy.

Tetro (2009)
It is long and slow and, most importantly, lacking in dramatic tension.

Away We Go (2009)
Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski carry this movie.

Tennessee (2009)
It is a brooding, heavy story that has moments of visual beauty, but is ultimately imbued with a permanent glumness.

Danny McBride is funny in the movie, not nearly often enough.

You know precisely where it's headed and how it will get there halfway into Act One.

Up (2009)
The key to Pixar's success has always been the perfect blend of heart and humor -- and they've certainly done it again here.
