Your Mommy Kills Animals (2007)
Good Luck Chuck (2007)
Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
Sea of Dreams (2006)
Sydney White (2007)
The Last Winter (2007)
Into the Wild (2007)
"Penn's film burns with native intelligence, never tipping into hagiography, and always doing what very few purveyors of McCandless' story have been able or willing to do. It engages with him on his own terms."
The Jane Austen Book Club (2007)
Antonia (Antônia - O Filme) (2007)
"The music, rhythms and vibrant colors of the city are beautifully woven into cinematographer Jacob Sarmento Solitrenick's unobtrusive hand-held camerawork, while director/co-writer Tata Amaral reveals a deft hand with actors."
Dragon Wars (2007)
"This one's for connoisseurs of the "totally preposterous crap" school of fantasy cinema. You know who you are: You have all the Warlock sequels on Laserdisc [and] the complete Leprechaun series on DVD."
Shadow Company (2007)
Moving McAllister (2007)
"Lacking so much as one interesting creative flourish, Moving McAllister may inspire your inner-development exec to scream out script notes in the hope that somehow, maybe, the characters will hear you and give them a try."
"The legend of Milarepa -- an exiled heir who sought revenge before finding dharma -- engages on a narrative level; however, Chokling's direction fails to give the story any period texture or visceral emotion."
Fierce People (2005)
"It's possible, I suppose, that Dunne and Wittenborn were so intent on excoriating the well-to-do that they conceived of this entire movie as an act of self-flagellation. In which case, they should rest assured that no one stands to make a dime from it."
The Brave One (2007)
"Jordan's ballsy and sometimes bonkers movie is more ambitious and alive -- more worth writing, talking and thinking about -- than anything that has tumbled off the Hollywood assembly line in a good long while."
The Dead One (2007)
3:10 to Yuma (2007)
The Bubble (2007)
Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
Self Medicated (2006)
"As director, Lapica labors to affect a kind of stark, airless 'realism,' yet long before Andrew's eleventh-hour encounter with a saintly, homily-spouting homeless man, Self-Medicated reveals itself as a uniquely narcissistic fantasy."
The Nines (2007)
"In each segment, Reynolds (who gives the movie his all but gets little in return) finds himself haunted in some way by the titular numeral -- a feeling likely to be shared by anyone who spends about that many dollars on a ticket."
Manda Bala (Send a Bullet) (2007)
Ladrón que Roba a Ladrón (2007)
"Ruiz is so intent on harnessing the painter to his own -- here, rather arid -- relativism that he never manages to convey the unfettered eros that brings crowds flocking to exhibitions of Klimt's work, even as critics hold their noses."
Freshman Orientation (2007)
War (Rogue Assassin) (2007)
The Nanny Diaries (2007)
Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)
In a Day (2006)
Deep Water (2006)
Closing Escrow (2007)
"Unless you've thrown up your hands and butted out of all news of the Middle East debacle, nothing in this methodical, unimaginative documentary about the Arab-Israeli conflict will surprise, edify or, God forbid, outrage you."
"Cinematographer Bridger Nielson treats every shot as a work of art; you've never seen East L.A. look this gorgeous before. Unfortunately, the actors also seem to have been cast for appearances only."
7 días (2007)
"U2, notoriously tight with the rights to their music and image, were reportedly so impressed by the script that they allowed their music and some concert footage to be used for very cheap. They got gypped."
Chakde! India (2007)
The 11th Hour (2007)
"The 11th Hour is ultimately a triumph of redemptive ideas that DiCaprio -- God bless his celebrity -- may finally succeed in transporting from the environmental fringe to the mainstream moviegoing audience."
The Invasion (2007)
Daddy Day Camp (2007)
"There's no point being highbrow about a film that relies on the typical fart-puke-nuts-kaboom brand of family comedy, but [director] Savage's lethargic, impersonal approach can't even make Camp's gross-out moments appropriately revolting."
Cut Sleeve Boys (2007)
"First-time director Corneliu Porumboiu's political satire is uproariously funny and bitingly critical of social hypocrisy before and after Ceausescu, and of the new forms of mythmaking and corruption that have replaced Soviet-style autocracy."
Becoming Jane (2007)
"For realism's sake, Jarrold checks in with the usual muddy hems, misty green fields and chickens clucking underfoot. And if youâ(TM)re an Austen reader you can have an okay time just playing I-Spy Pride and Prejudice..."
The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
This Is England (2007)
