The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

"David Fincher never lets his movie devolve into a petty revenge fantasy. The filmmaker clearly got the novel and, consequently, gets the most out of the novel. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is just what the fans were demanding."

The Artist (2011)

"In a strange way, it's not unlike The Matrix -- only this time the red pill transports you into the futuristic world of sound, rather than a cynical world of two increasingly abysmal sequels. "

Drag Me to Hell (2009)

"Drag Me to Hell's PG-13 rating holds [Raimi] back from the all-out, blood-spraying gonzo insanity he reached with Evil Dead, but he still gets away with a surprising amount of gross-out gags."

Babel (2006)

Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

"A dark fairy tale that only Guillermo del Toro could bring to life. The screenwriter/director can do no wrong."

The Queen (2006)

"You can't help but be taken by Mirren's faultless performance. Entranced by her every nuance. In awe of her very artistry as an actress."

Dreamgirls (2006)

Letters from Iwo Jima (2006)

"Letters from Iwo Jima takes no sides, takes no prisoners and will hopefully take home a handful of Oscars."

Saw III (2006)

"Makes the first two look about as intimidating as a child's six piece jigsaw puzzle. This is for the hardcore horror fan and for the hardcore horror fan only."

The Departed (2006)

"Martin Scorsese must have missed the memo stating that Hollywood movies were being dumbed down for mass audiences. The director has created one of the best films of the year, guaranteed to keep audiences on their toes."

World Trade Center (2006)

"There's been talk of World Trade Center bringing people to tears. After seeing the film, it's hard to believe that they're not tears of boredom."

The Descent (2006)

"One of the scariest horror movies of the past 20 years. Would do Wes Craven, George A. Romero and James Whale proud."

Miami Vice (2006)

The Ant Bully (2006)

"With Monster House already being presented in 3-D at theaters worldwide, there isn't a single reason to recommend The Ant Bully."

Scoop (2006)

"The key to the film's success is the pairing of [Scarlett] Johansson and [Woody] Allen as ham-handed investigative journalists. Johansson brings out the funny in Allen like nobody since Diane Keaton."

Monster House (2006)

Eight Below (2006)

Capote (2005)

Good Night, And Good Luck (2005)

Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)

Evil Dead 2 (1987)

"Best slapstick seen in a horror flick. If Charlie Chaplin were alive today and into terror, he'd be directing this movie. Okay, maybe not -- but at least he wouldn't be dead."
