A joy to behold.

Downey spins joyfully back and forth between farce and realism. Is there any leading man more fun to watch?

Zorro is misnamed, since it's less about the legend than what happens when the legend goes home and gets yelled at by his wife.

Shopgirl (2005)
Shopgirl is sadly vacuous, with a sadly vacuous center.

Domino (2005)
Manages the feat of literally spelling things out and being utterly incoherent.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is a bloody delight on every level.

You can look at The Squid and the Whale as the truest kind of artistic coming-of-age story: a cathartic piece of self-criticism.

An honest tear-jerker.

Serenity (2005)
I mean Serenity no disrespect when I say it's enjoyably junky.

Duma (2005)
I like it. Maybe not as much as those other pictures, but enough to bemoan a system in which family films have been so geared to kids (and their parents) with a kind of attention deficit disorder that it's inhospitable to a measured piece of storytelling.

Flightplan (2005)
A more than decent thriller.

The movie is so Burtonesque that it verges on self-parody -- but it's fun and stunningly beautiful anyway.

You take your laughs where you can find them.

Overlong at nearly two hours but still a sharp and amusing and subtle piece of filmmaking.

Valiant (2005)
Where are the real fairy tales -- the ones without the relentless number of jokes aimed at grown-ups?

A gratifyingly slick and fast-moving Flemish thriller, directed by Erik Van Looy, with superb acting.

Asylum (2005)
Asylum is all very formal, detached, and, regrettably, sane.

The Brothers Grimm has enough haunting, fairy-tale imagery for 10 movies, but no emotional kick to drive those images home.

Eternal (2004)
Perfect for watching on video on a cool Cape Cod night, but maybe not so arousing in an arthouse for 10 bucks and change.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin is too long, too sexist, and too -- shall we say -- flaccid.

Grizzly Man (2005)
Amazing documentary.

A decent-enough rambunctious Southern-drive-in sort of time-waster.

Last Days (2005)
Last Days is an extraordinarily potent brew.

9 Songs (2005)
It's stupefyingly dull, even with good music and at the short but resonant length of 69 minutes.

Dark Water (2005)
This is an eerie, relentlessly grim, invasive little movie -- a tone poem of despair that seeps into you like the damp.
Posted Jul 8, 2005

An overinflated B-movie with no grace, no subtext, no wit, and featuring beefcake/cheesecake actors who look like they've been plucked from the soaps.

Bewitched (2005)
Nora Ephron used to mine the tension between romantic fantasy and the real (disappointing) world for honest laughs. But now she has settled happily in big-budget star-studded chick-flick land, where it's all synthetic, all the time.
