Soderbergh's skill, intelligence and love for the genre are never in doubt. But, as it turns out, you can't play it again, Sam.

Dreamgirls (2006)
The movie belongs to Hudson as the proud, self-destructive Effie. When she's center stage, Dreamgirls transports you to movie musical heaven.

Flushed Away (2006)
Though it lacks Wallace and Gromit's charm, its mile-a-minute inventiveness is impressive.

Forest Whitaker, uncorking the power that he usually holds in check, gives a chilling, bravura performance as Ugandan tyrant Idi Amin.

[T]he movie certainly means well, and its worthwhile message (teamwork is good, selfishness is bad) should penetrate the brains of kids old enough to stay in their seats and pay attention to it.

Miami Vice (2006)

This indie, a sweet, tart and smart satire about a family of losers in a world obsessed with winning, is an authentic crowd pleaser. There's been no more satisfying American comedy this year.

You have to honor its mad ambition. But sadly, it feels like a dream too long deferred.

The Pianist (2002)
In going home to tell Szpilman's story Polanski seems reborn: once again he's become a filmmaker who matters.
