Love for Sale is a small film, but is one with a big heart.

3.5/4
An audience favorite on the film festival circuit, The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters is a laugh-out-loud funny and rousing documentary that's far more compelling than the would-be summer blockbusters crowding the multiplex.

2.5/4
As dumb and redundant as its wink-wink title. Devoid of the charm and wit that's become the hallmark of so many British ensemble comedies, it feels more like some frantic, door-slamming stage farce than an actual movie.

The Invasion (2007)
Aside from a handful of scenes, the fourth version of Finney's pulp novel may induce drowsiness, rather than goose-bumps.

Superbad (2007)
At the film's core is a poignant message about teen male friendships that smartly balances the bawdy nuttiness that surrounds it.

Delirious (2007)
Delirious is a funny, insightful, entertaining poke at celebrity culture that lands quite a few notches above the typical, New York-set ensemble indie.

There's virtually no story in the movie, at least none that isn't utterly, completely predictable.

The Nines (2007)
It's that increasingly rare animal, a comedy that is engaging, funny, and smart. And since this is only August's first film, it bodes well for the future.

Rush Hour 3 (2007)
Rush Hour 3 is just sad, but what is sadder still is the certainty that there will be a Rush Hour 4.

Stardust (2007)
Vaughn has done justice to his source material, at times even surpassing it (his ending is way more satisfying than Gaiman's). It is mostly a delight and that is just fine.

Underdog (2007)
Yet another misbegotten live-action remake of a beloved Saturday morning cartoon, Underdog is a negligible family film that's so blandly formulaic, it makes the original, '60s-era cartoon look downright edgy in comparison.

The whole thing is perverse, with first-time (and hopefully last time) screenwriter Jeffrey Hammond and director Chris Sivertson taking particular delight in the way the killer toys with his victims.

1.5/4
About the best that can be said for this clunky mixture of tired stereotypes, obvious gags, and on-the-nose social commentary is that it's relatively short, clocking in just less than 90 minutes.

El Cantante (2007)
Ultimately, Ichaso's passionate helming and its stars' deep commitment make El Cantante (The Singer) worth seeing, despite the film's unmistakable missteps.

1.5/4
The effect is not a rich film with a wide range of tones as the director may have intended, but a schizophrenic mess that ends up working as neither social message movie nor entertainment.

Hot Rod (2007)
So lazy and so void of even the most rudimentary sense of storytelling that it showers the viewer with contempt...I've never felt as abused by a filmmaker as I did in Hot Rod.

The action never flags, but the story and the characters are shallow. This is glossy entertainment and nothing more.

Hathaway and McAvoy are appealing, but bland. The scenes that hark back to Pride and Prejudice are not so much evocative as hackneyed. It is all very pleasant, but it is also a bit of a bore.

The movie is never dull and like the best episodes of the series, it is frequently hilarious, rich in visual humor and verbal wit.

The Queen (2006)
An intelligent script that keeps in the spirit and tone of Britain's House of Mountbatten-Windsor, and yet slyly manages a wink at the audience every now and then.

A dull and utterly routine ensemble dramedy.

Arctic Tale (2007)
Its no-bones-about-it message of how global climate change is challenging our furry -- and blubbery -- animal friends at the top of the world is critical and makes the film something everyone concerned with the environment should see.

The biggest problem with the movie isn't the actors or even the half-baked script; it is that it never successfully draws one into its world. Watching Goya's Ghosts, one begins to daydream about Michael Palin.

It's the best kind of documentary, in that if you're a thinking person it is nearly impossible to watch the movie without having your point of view challenged and questioned.

Sunshine (2007)
Sunshine is also an atypically humorless entry from Boyle, who's never made a film this oddly devoid of personality.

It does not aim high, yet it cannot even hit the low targets it sets for itself. It is simply painful.

Talk to Me (2007)
As might be expected in a film that stars two such heavyweights, Talk to Me is a master class in acting. Ejiofor and Cheadle are both terrific, investing their characters with more than just personality, but also with heart and soul.

Lady Chatterley is nearly three hours long, a punishing length for such a lethargic film. Julien Hirsch's cinematography and Constance's beloved woods are gorgeous, but pretty pictures are not enough when the drama is so inert.

2.5/4
Since the movie more or less abandons all pretense of naturalism somewhere around its midpoint, in the end the expressionistic frenzy of light, movement, and color that takes over is enough to make it worth seeing.

Joshua (2007)
This stylish and sophisticated film loses its way in a frustratingly vague third act that's more unsatisfying than unsettling.
