3.5/4
Like its title character, The Real Dirt on Farmer John is a simple, effective movie with a lot on its mind.

The film is riveting at every moment even when the audience is a little unclear on how those moments connect.

Transformers (2007)
A high-octane symphony of machine battling machine and stuff blowing to pieces.

Introducing the Dwights has its moments -- just not enough of them.

The worst idea for a studio comedy since last year's equally dreadful Failure to Launch.

Rescue Dawn (2007)
Made up of moments that represent cinema at its best -- moments of pure sensation of the type that can't be expressed with the same degree of immediacy in any other art form.

Consistently riveting thanks to the sense of sheer terror that infuses its best moments.

3/4
It's a bold and watchable look at a group of friends in their late teens/early 20s -- four men and one woman -- who share a codependent, sometimes sexual, always provocative relationship.

Evening (2007)
Danes, radiant with intelligence, warmth and common sense, captures your heart. Sadly, the same cannot be said of Evening.

Sicko (2007)
A galvanizing, infuriating and sometimes heartbreaking look into the red tape-snarled morass of the American health care system.

Ratatouille (2007)
A scrumptious and savory entrée, delivered with wit and aplomb. It is the most delicious offering yet from those wizards at Pixar.

Klimt (2005)
A handsome film, but no amount of superior art direction or glittering surface can obscure the rigor mortis that engulfs the drama.

You Kill Me (2007)
Dahl, greatly assisted by the eye-catching work of vet cinematographer Jeffrey Jur, has crafted a stylish-looking piece but, unfortunately, can't keep up the movie's initial spirited pace.

Scary, smart, and moving, it's a terrific summer entertainment for grown-ups.

3/4
This is one modern movie musical that has what its slicker, star-studded, far more lavishly financed brethren, such as Chicago and Dreamgirls, lack: real joy and a giddy love for the genre that imbues every frame.

Stripped of much of the director's trademark deadpan humor and saddled with such an extremely passive protagonist, getting through the drama becomes an exercise in patience.

Nancy Drew (2007)
It is smart enough to captivate not just the women who loved the books as kids, but also the boys and men that would normally disdain such a 'chick' flick. That nice Nancy Drew just has a way of winning people over.

This is one of those superhero movies in which the superheroes are not nearly as charismatic as the villain. Luckily for this sequel, the Silver Surfer is on the scene.

Williams's dialogue writing is often rather witty -- he's fully aware of some of the more ridiculous conventions of the genre, and he gives the characters exchanges in which they justify the plot contrivances in inventive, plausible ways.

Corneliu Porumboiu's drolly witty black comedy 12:08 East of Bucharest is an understated gem, infused with gimlet-eyed humor, weary pathos and surprising tenderness.

Another dysfunctional American family gets its documentary close-up in the sad but involving You're Gonna Miss Me, the story of legendary music pioneer Roger "Roky" Erickson.

Cotillard is capable of taking something ordinary and transforming it into something special, and that is exactly what she does in La Vie En Rose.

If this is the final Ocean's movie, saving the best for last is a wonderful way to go out.

Hostel: Part II has something that most bigger-budgeted and more heavily promoted sequels don't: the ambition to not only repeat the experience of its predecessor, but to expand and improve upon it.

Day Watch (2007)
Night Watch was a deliriously stylish and endlessly inventive rollercoaster ride; Day Watch adds emotional resonance to the mix to create an epic that's got more energy and depth than all three Lord of the Rings movies combined.

Crazy Love (2007)
Klores makes vivid use of a wide variety of snapshots, headlines, TV news coverage, and some decent re-enactment footage.

Gracie (2007)
Gracie's many heartfelt, well-calibrated moments, affecting performances, and evocative visual style should win over those who do give it a shot.

Mr. Brooks (2007)
The movie is a missed opportunity. It has all the ingredients of a delightfully twisted, sleek little thriller. But with all that extra padding, Mr. Brooks is just one bloated mess.

Knocked Up (2007)
Hollywood's reigning auteur of raunchy romantic comedy, Judd Apatow, scores a near-knockout with Knocked Up, his extremely funny and sweetly endearing follow-up to The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Ten Canoes (2007)
One of the most surprising things about the movie is how much fun it is. The story Minygululu tells has components as exciting as any American action movie, and the relationships are as compelling as the best melodrama.

Golden Door (2007)
Beautifully made but simple-minded Oscar bait, a film guaranteed to offend no one and to attract a large contingent fans who will love it for the nobility of its intentions and the earnestness of its performances.

Angel-A (2005)
As a drama, Angel-A does not rank as a great movie, but as an homage to Paris, it is sensational. For this viewer, at least, that is good enough.
