2.5/4
Ira and Abby (2006)
It is a pleasant enough way to while away 90 minutes, but lacks the consistency of the weight to make it more than a genial diversion.

Towelhead (2007)
An engrossing, unforgettable film, if more than a little incendiary.

A poor man's version of a Judd Apatow-style raunchy romantic comedy.

Hirsch is excellent as the woefully ill-informed and too arrogant for his own good McCandless, but Christopher is ultimately such an unsympathetic character that it is hard to feel anything for him. That makes it very hard to stick with the film.

In the end, the scariest thing about The Last Winter is how few of its ideas seem truly fantastic or implausible.

It is beautiful, but ultimately empty and a little bit boring.

The movie is merely a long, empty exercise in style.

Sydney White (2007)
Completely undemanding and entirely predictable, this Amanda Bynes vehicle, nevertheless, offers plenty of charm, a lot of laughs, and that rarest of commodities, a smart, independent, can-do heroine.

...Angels in the Dust is an important, enormously emotional film that will hopefully have a far-reaching and valuable impact on the plight of Sub-Saharan AIDS.

Dragon Wars (2007)
It's admittedly pretty dumb, but in the end its fierce commitment to its own goofy ideas is oddly admirable.

It is a showcase for Jones, who is moving as a father who only wants to know what happened to his son, but it is also a vile, hopelessly reductive film.

Except for the breathtaking Australian landscape, there's little to recommend about December Boys.

Though Moving McAllister's heart and soul are in the right place, it's a terrible excuse for a movie.

Though it takes a while to get in sync with its flat style and sluggish pace, the movie creeps up on you in stirring, unexpected ways.

It's overlong, exhaustingly so, and barely held together by the flimsiest of narratives.

Silk (2007)
It is a gorgeous film to look at, but it has little to recommend it beyond pretty pictures.

Mr. Woodcock (2007)
It's a two-minute trailer unsuccessfully stretched into an 87-minute feature film.

2.5/4
This intermittently riveting and atmospheric film nevertheless ends on such a bewilderingly abrupt and unsatisfying note, you wonder if there's a missing reel.

2.5/4
One guesses this slick, decidedly mainstream project is little more than a paycheck [for director Jordan]. Unfortunately, it shows. The minutes pass quickly enough in watching The Brave One, but it is a waste of time.

In the end, Kohn's one-note approach diminishes, rather than intensifies, the impact of Manda Bala.

Milarepa (2007)
A captivating fable, told with heartfelt eloquence and restraint.

Idiosyncratic and personal, it's a comedy that could only have come from the distinctive mind of its very talented creator.

The quest might be ridiculous with a different cast of characters, but with these three, it is a delight following them on their impossible journey.

The analogies drawn between the Ishkanani and the Osborne social circle come off as insufferably precious, rather than thoughtful.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
A former storyboard artist, Davis orchestrates the film's nearly wall-to-wall action sequences with breakneck precision and exhilarating verve -- the more outrageous the mayhem, the better.

3:10 to Yuma (2007)
A terrific, old-fashioned western, proof positive that sometimes, they do "make 'em like they used to."

A strong argument for birth control and 2007's worst comedy to date.

There is a lot of talent in front of the camera in this mess -- Statham, Li, Lone, Aoki, Luis Guzman, Saul Rubinek, and the always cool Sung Kang -- and they are all wasted. Those actors deserve a better movie. So does the audience.

For anyone bored silly by the formulaic drivel churned out by the studios, Exiled is like a blast of cinematic adrenaline.

Halloween (2007)
Rob Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's Halloween is neither the blasphemous affront hardcore fans have feared nor the flat-out masterpiece one might have hoped for from one of modern horror's most distinctive talents.

Deep Water (2006)
Nearly 40 years after he attempted to transcend his everyday life of limited horizons and money troubles, Osmond and Rothwell offer a fitting tribute to Crowhurst and his impossible dream.

Heartbreak has been portrayed on film many times, in many ways, but Hawke and his actors find a whole new language for it.

Crosses our real-life national nightmares with a cleverly constructed thriller to create a movie that is smart, impeccably acted, and extremely unsettling.

Dedication (2007)
A weird hybrid of hipster art-house film and chick flick in which the warring intentions and attitudes cancel each other out.

What could have been a galvanizing and all-too timely account of religious fanaticism turning violent has instead been reduced to the banal level of an Romeo and Juliet-type love story.

Fans of the novel might consider this tired movie a wasted opportunity. For everyone else, it is just a waste of time.

A breezily funny showcase for the rubbery-faced Atkinson's signature character, a near-mute buffoon partly inspired by the similar antics of Jacques Tati.
