"It turns a complicated story of religious bigotry and paranoia, with visitations from God, self-appointed prophets and 'divine' instruction into a dry history lesson."

The Invasion (2007)

"There have been two official remakes of Invasion, and both tapped into the original's fear and dread of a society subverted by the others. This one taps only into that part of the brain that shuts down when confronted with witless tedium."

Superbad (2007)

"The unrelenting Judd Apatow stamp on movie comedy continues with Superbad, which is recognizably in the same hilariously vulgar vein."

Interview (2007)

"Interview feels more like a lab experiment/tribute than a committed, personal drama, leaving us with the sense that Buscemi wanted to feel more connected to this material than he actually did."

Stardust (2007)

"Even if it is not as smart and emotionally affecting as MirrorMask it will alert moviegoers to the talent of Gaiman -- a storyteller for the ages."

Rush Hour 3 (2007)

"Brett Ratner, the great refusnik of all the A-list, big-budget action film directors, sticks steadfastly to formula."

"Owes more to the third or fourth sequel to Meatballs and other character-building summer-camp comedies than it does to Daddy Day Care, with neither director Fred Savage or the writers inclined to come up with a single original idea."

El Cantante (2007)

Hot Rod (2007)

"Director Akiva Schaffer apparently thinks that by adding stupid stunts to the formula, Hot Rod also can attract the Jackass crowd."

"The third chapter in the globe-trotting -- more like globe-speeding, actually -- saga of Jason Bourne, a.k.a. the Spy With No Memory, is easily the best of the three."

Black Sheep (2006)

Becoming Jane (2007)

"Explains Austen's art simply and neatly: too simply, in fact, to do justice to such a brilliant observer of social manners and hypocrisies and weaver of complex, romantic moral tales."

"In the same way that leftover food sometimes tastes better warmed over, No Reservations is a more enjoyable film than the 2001 German film on which it is based, Mostly Martha."

"So the only real argument I can make for Eagle vs. Shark, a stupid-absurdist comedy from New Zealand, is that I laughed a lot, often despite myself, and that while I might not be able to wholly justify it, I can mount a questionable defense."

"...Winter's coming-of-age-in-the-1980s saga is content to rewalk the same mean streets, never ducking into one alley or back room we haven't visited."
