"The message is muddled, but the zombie master still knows how to make a gripping, graphic, grossly funny horror flick."

Jumper (2008)

"Jumper had potential, though. It's got a clever premise. And at its best, in the beginning, it almost feels like the pilot for a prime-time series you'd like to see more of. But now we're jumping ahead of ourselves."

"The Spiderwick Chronicles may not be in the same fantasy league as the tales of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling. Yet the family flick based on the books of Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black is an all-around class act."

"A surprisingly clever romantic comedy that starts brightly but unfortunately loses its spark at the end."

Fool's Gold (2008)

"The tone of Fool's Gold often feels as if Tennant & Co. were straining to create a live-action version of a Bugs Bunny cartoon, from the slapsticky physical humor to the constantly jaunty score."

"The movie might satisfy bloodthirsty action fans, but for most people, this is one Stallone do-over we could have done without."

Untraceable (2008)

"Someday, we're probably going to look back at There Will Be Blood, Paul Thomas Anderson's epic about greed, lies, manipulation and insanity, and call it his masterpiece."

Cloverfield (2008)

27 Dresses (2008)

"Patrice Leconte has taken a story about male friendship, in all its posturing and potential vulnerability, and turned it into a light, smart, crowd-pleasing comedy."

Lust, Caution (2007)

"Overwrought and overlong, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution nevertheless has some moments of exquisite beauty and a potentially star-making performance from newcomer Tang Wei."

Rails & Ties (2007)

"It's hard to get over the implausibility of the premise in Micky Levy's script, even though the characters themselves acknowledge that they're in a ridiculous situation."

"As in Antwone Fisher, which helped make a star of Derek Luke, Washington draws effortless performances from his young actors, which go a long way in making The Great Debaters more enjoyable than you might expect."

"It's strangely beautiful and beautifully strange, with horrific subject matter that produces plenty of wicked humor and characters who initially seem ghoulish but ultimately reveal themselves as sympathetic and deeply sad."

"Charlie Wilson's War, a crisp, biting satire that confidently mixes sex and politics, glides along so smartly and smoothly, it makes you wonder how it's possible that director Mike Nichols and writer Aaron Sorkin have never teamed up before."

Revolver (2005)

"After 2002's terrible Swept Away and now Revolver, Ritchie has managed to make, back to back, two of the worst films any one director can lay claim to."

Trade (2007)

"A documentary about sex trafficking might have been more powerful. Dramatizing the subject in this fashion, with a race-against-time road trip, breathless online bidding and a couple of different happy endings, simply cheapens it."

Juno (2007)

"Juno is the kind of movie all indie comedies wish they could be: light and lovable, perhaps a bit too pleased with the cleverness of its dialogue, but a small charmer nonetheless."

The Savages (2007)

"Despite its dark humor, The Savages tackles the tough topics of aging, frailty, humiliation and death. All depressing stuff, to be sure, but Jenkins handles it with a delicate, relatable touch, and without being maudlin."

Redacted (2007)

"Redacted might have been more compelling if De Palma had redacted himself a bit -- if he hadn't been so overt, if he'd given us enough credit to think for ourselves and come to our own conclusions about these men and the choices they made."
