The Love Bug (1969)
The Absent-Minded Professor (1961)
"Flubber provides fuel for a very funny piece of hyperbolic humor in the grand American tradition of Paul Bunyan, and Director Robert Stevenson and Scriptwriter Bill Walsh get plenty of bounce out of every ounce."
The Parent Trap (1961)
Swiss Family Robinson (1960)
The Shaggy Dog (1959)
Old Yeller (1957)
Dances With Wolves (1990)
Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
"Alfred Uhry's adaptation of his Pulitzer-prizewinning play aspires more to complex observation of human behavior than to simple moralism about it. Precisely because it has its priorities straight, it succeeds superbly on both levels."
The Last Emperor (1987)
Out of Africa (1985)
"Out of Africa is, at last, the free-spirited, fullhearted gesture that everyone has been waiting for the movies to make all decade long. It reclaims the emotional territory that is rightfully theirs."
Terms of Endearment (1983)
"Its quirky rhythms and veering emotional tones are very much its own, and they owe less to movie tradition than they do to a sense of how the law of unintended consequences pushes us ceaselessly through the years, permitting no pause for perspective."
Ordinary People (1980)
The Deer Hunter (1978)
Annie Hall (1977)
"One Flew over the Cuckoo 's Nest is an earnest attempt to make a serious film. But in the end the movie backs away from both the human reality and the cloudy but potent symbolism that Ken Kesey found in the asylum."
The Godfather, Part II (1974)
The French Connection (1971)
In the Heat of the Night (1967)
A Man for All Seasons (1966)
The Sound of Music (1965)
Tom Jones (1963)
"The film is a way-out, walleyed, wonderful exercise in cinema. It is also a social satire written in blood with a broadaxe. It is bawdy as the British were bawdy when a wench had to wear five petticoats to barricade her virtue."
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
He's Just Not That Into You (2009)
West Side Story (1961)
The Apartment (1960)
"A comedy of men's-room humours and water-cooler politics that now and then among the belly laughs says something serious and sad about the struggle for success, about what it often does to a man, and about the horribly small world of big business."
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
Around the World in 80 Days (1956)
On the Waterfront (1954)
From Here to Eternity (1953)
The Greatest Show on Earth (1952)
An American in Paris (1951)
All About Eve (1950)
Gentleman's Agreement (1947)
The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)
"Like most good mass entertainments, this picture has occasional moments of knowing hokum; but unlike most sure-fire movies, it was put together with good taste, honesty, wit -- and even a strong suggestion of guts."
The Lost Weekend (1945)
"Director Billy Wilder's technique of photographing Third Avenue in the grey morning sunlight with a concealed camera to keep the crowds from being self-conscious gives this sequence the shock of reality."
Going My Way (1944)
Mrs. Miniver (1942)
How Green Was My Valley (1941)
You Can't Take It With You (1938)
The Life of Emile Zola (1937)
Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)
The Great Ziegfeld (1936)
