This comedy thing isn't supposed to be as easy as these guys make it seem.

You're being short-changed.

88 Minutes (2008)
Even a viewer with incredibly low expectations will be staggered by its badness.

Fool's Gold (2008)
It's like Raiders of the Lost Ark, only for retards.

Simultaneously exhilarating and disturbing while leading me to a place I wasn't sure I wanted to go.

It's like a cross between My Name Is Earl and The Amazing Race, only with two guys dying from cancer. And without the soul, heart, or brains.

John C. Reilly is not anyone's idea of a leading man (which is part of the spoof, people).

Two hours of singing is going to bore the pants off of gore-starved viewers, and the last-reel gore is going to scare the pants of the foofy Broadway types. And that means a theatre full of people without pants.

A scene-stealing performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman.

This is the work of a man who has truly lost his marbles.

The perfect maudlin holiday entertainment.

Atonement (2007)
Sightly better than average, unless you count Keira Knightley's lack of screen time as a positive (note: it is).

Tepid at best.

Like every other story that pits the Haves against the Have-Nots.

I Am Legend (2007)
A tidy post-apocalyptic thriller starring the increasingly impressive Will Smith.

Juno (2007)
I can't remember the last time I was pulled into a film this quickly and this deeply.

The Savages (2007)
Exactly like I thought it would be for about 96 of its 113-minute running time.

August Rush (2007)
Think of it as a fairytale only with more of a ... oh, who am I kidding? I can't defend this.

The Mist (2007)
Deeply upsetting enough for me to recommend it to only the heartiest viewers.

Fred Claus (2007)
There is absolutely no way writers were involved in the process that pooped out this holiday turkey.

Everyone who pretended to love Aquatic because they were afraid of hopping off the Anderson bandwagon because deep down they hoped it was just a little career hiccup? Don't lock your knees when you jump because you'll wreck 'em.

Things We Lost in the Fire: Any sense of rhythm or pace, and an ending that won't make you groan.
Posted Nov 2, 2007

Affleck's non-acting effort is dark, scuzzy, and authentic.
Posted Nov 2, 2007

Little else we've not been exposed to in the last handful of years.

5/10
Instead of playing to the strength of its leads, the script almost seems to highlight their weaknesses (in other words, you don't see Wahlberg's abs once).

Honeydripper (2007)
Very light and quite predictable.
Posted Oct 4, 2007

Whether you buy the whole enchilada or not, you'll be in awe of There's editing and photography.
Posted Oct 4, 2007
29
Ultimately plays out as weakly as an actual adult film.

Half the fun is watching a first-rate cast try to outdo each other without chewing up any scenery.

The trouble lies in the story.
Posted Oct 4, 2007
32
Agonizingly pedestrian.
Posted Oct 4, 2007
33
Very unusual, but very likeable and quite colorful, as well.
Posted Sep 29, 2007
34
Very funny stuff from the likes of Takeshi Kitano, Nanni Moretti, the Coen brothers, Lars von Trier, Roman Polanski, David Cronenberg, and Walter Salles.
Posted Sep 25, 2007

More of a direct-to-Lifetime Network quality.
Posted Sep 25, 2007

There are some really nice quiet moments, but George generally opts for the screaming and the uncontrollable sobbing one might think need accompany a film with Oscar aspirations.

Towelhead (2007)
If there's a message, I didn't get it. But that doesn't mean I didn't dig the flick, especially the performance from Macidissi.
Posted Sep 25, 2007

It's subdued a bit, and not nearly as nauseating. And I'm not sure I mean either of those things as a compliment.
Posted Sep 25, 2007

Ultra-grim.

Strong performances, especially from the never-better Farrell. This might be the first time I've watched him and not been completely distracted by that big black caterpillar above his eyes.

Patrice Leconte's latest is a little light and a little telegraphed, but still quite enjoyable.
Posted Sep 22, 2007

Sleuth (2007)
Fans of the original, or even people who saw the original and said, 'Meh,' will likely be angered by this update --- especially the end, or more directly, the lack thereof.
Posted Sep 15, 2007

Deficit (2007)
Bernal has worked with some of the planet's greatest directors so it comes as no surprise that the actor's directorial debut is accomplished, thoughtful and entertaining.
Posted Sep 15, 2007
44
Cleaner (2008)
The "cleaning" thing was done and done better in Curdled and in terms of a crime drama, Cleaner just doesn't measure up.
Posted Sep 15, 2007
45
Another very, very solid crime drama from Johnnie To and Wai Ka-fai.
Posted Sep 15, 2007
46
Miike surprises for all the wrong reasons.
Posted Sep 15, 2007

Haunting and gorgeous.
Posted Sep 15, 2007

Wareing stands out among the slate of typically Loachian/genuine performances, managing to be both unlikable and empathetic at the same time.
Posted Sep 14, 2007
49
Persepolis (2007)
It always seems like there's one very strong, very different animated film that gives the mundane, computer-generated 'toons a run for their money come Oscar time, and this is almost certainly going to be this year's version.

Redacted (2007)
Poorly executed, poorly acted, and poorly imagined.
