1.5/4
More silly than suspenseful, this sleekly produced, high gloss piece of trash isn't quite in the so-bad-it's-good category of schlock films, but it comes mighty close, thanks to a gonzo twist of an ending.

Disturbia (2007)
By and large, the characters in Disturbia do all the dumb, reckless things we've come to expect -- and rightly mock -- in cheesy suspense flicks.

The TV Set (2007)
Much like the television pilot it revolves around, the pale satire The TV Set doesn't quite know what it wants to be.

3.5/4
The cast is uniformly excellent, but Webber in his first feature role is a stand out, delivering a subtle performance that offers a fully realized portrayal of a smart, sensitive, confused, and sometimes bratty and obnoxious youth.

Grindhouse (2007)

A movie that is probably too intense for younger children yet too simplistic for their older siblings or grownups.

The Hoax (2007)

The Reaping (2007)
The creators of The Reaping don't believe in their own pro-spirituality message, which they're willing to betray in the film's final minutes for the sake of one cheap, totally gimmicky scare.

There's not a whiff of freshness in all of Are We Done Yet?, which goes for the very lowest common denominator in terms of laughs -- and still misses that broad mark 99 3/4 percent of its seemingly interminable running time.

A wisp of a film, dramatically threadbare, and saddled with a brittle and affected performance by Williams.

There are some solid chuckles in the lowbrow crime comedy Live Free or Die but they're not enough to sustain its slight story for a whole 90 minutes.

Dead Silence (2007)
Formulas are great for chemistry, but relying on them in movies only leads to tedium -- in this case, tedium interspersed with occasional bouts of gore.

If Tortilla Heaven is supposed to be a more serious exploration of faith and greed it's a total failure, given that it doesn't address a single question it raises with any depth.

Offside (2006)
A beguiling, deceptively simple slice-of-life drama, shot cinéma vérité style, Offside reaffirms Jafar Panahi's preeminence as one of the most humanistic and socially progressive filmmakers in contemporary Iranian cinema.

Journey From the Fall deserves commendation for its intelligent and nuanced account of the Vietnamese refugee experience. Kudos to Tran and his fine cast, many of whom had never acted before, for making this moving and artfully crafted film.

First Snow (2007)
With its quiet, unassuming style and brooding intelligence, First Snow isn't the kind of movie that announces itself, but it's well worth seeking out, especially for moviegoers who complain that 'they' don't make movies for grown-ups anymore.

A sequel to a remake that's surprisingly intelligent and original, and it proves to be a worthy successor to both Alexandre Aja's 2006 Hills and Wes Craven's 1977 original.

Shooter (2007)
[Writer Jonathan Lemkin] never streamlined the plot enough to make this the fully accessible 'popcorn picture' it aims to be. Frankly, I defy any average moviegoer to accurately recount Shooter's knotty story.

Pride (2007)
Pride is a watchable if overly superficial film that nonetheless builds to a genuinely stirring conclusion.

There's a poignant story here, but to tell it well Binder needed to dig deep. Instead, he skates along the surface, and Charlie's story never comes completely alive.

While the end result of all this experimentation isn't entirely convincing or coherent, it's fairly entertaining and will probably appeal to the young audience at which it's aimed.

Less a piece of incisive cultural commentary than a riveting portrait of two nice guys whose lives and careers go into a tailspin, one moral compromise at a time.

Nomad (2007)
In the American-release version of the picture, the emphasis on spectacle and the paring away of all but the most essential exposition ends up having the opposite of its intended effect.

In the end, it is not the sexism and misogyny that truly ails I Think I Love My Wife-if the movie was actually funny, Rock probably would get away with all of that-it's just that it's so tired. The humor falls flat. The situation is hardly novel.

This depressing if worthy drama can only really scratch the surface of a tragedy that remains unfathomable both for its savagery and for the sheer indifference of the outside world.

The Host (2007)
Bong Joon-ho's The Host is the best kind of genre film, a movie that delivers the conventions audiences expect from a horror flick while also offering surprising new variations on the formula.

300 (2007)
One of the casualties of all this digital-effects wizardry is a sense of emotional immediacy. There's a conspicuously remote quality to much of the movie that drains the film of the visceral energy it so desperately needs to make an impact.
