"[A] bright and jagged piece of the jigsaw puzzle of Mr. Godard's career."A. O. Scott "Elliptical in the extreme and loaded with cinematic and political references, the film is nevertheless compelling because of Anna Karina's radiant presence and Godard's stunning images, dry wit, political fervor and endless inventiveness and daring."Los Angeles Times0.1015286

"Hardy gives an utterly convincing performance, and as a piece of filmmaking, BRONSON is undeniably well shot and well edited."Hollywood Reporter 4 stars out of 5 -- "Bronson's closest cousin is Malcolm McDowell's Alex in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Like Kubrick's anti-hero, Bronson inspires equal reactions of fascination and revulsion."Total Film "Refn's visual strategy reinforces both physical claustrophobia and mental closure....Not since A CLOCKWORK ORANGE has the aura of brutality been accompanied by such shrewd musical selections..."Film Comment 3 stars out of 5 -- "BRONSON is a stridently static film with an amazingly fluid performance at its center."Box Office "A fearless, indelible lead performance by Tom Hardy propels the wildly riveting BRONSON, the harsh true story of perhaps Britain's most notorious prisoner..."Los Angeles Times "For his movie BRONSON, director Nicolas Winding Refn turns Petersen's life story into a pensive, Kubrickian study of anti-social behavior." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club "[T]old with a CLOCKWORK ORANGE-in-the-cuckoo's-nest jauntiness."Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 4 -- "Tom Hardy is pure dynamite in the role....This movie and Hardy's electrifying performance will knock you for a loop."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "It is 92 minutes of rage....Hardy brings a raw physicality to the role..."Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's impossible not to be impressed by Hardy's charismatic take on a man we could spend a lifetime with and never fully understand."Premiere14.14324

"...As lively a tale as any Trekkie might want....One more fanciful chapter to this story..." New York Times "...Meyer and Flynn get a fullness back into their characters....STAR TREK VI works so well on its own terms that it looks less like a close than another possible opening..."Los Angeles Times "It all works: this is a tight, thrilling send-off."

"...A very satisfying space adventure....Bound to captivate 'Trek' fans and with premiere special effects to attract other space [picture] enthusiasts..."

3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his is a very well-made film indeed. There's more than meets the eye."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The players, who seem to be mostly improvising, are uniformly charming....Micahel Cera in particular cements his status as a contemporary Canadian Jimmy Stewart..."Box Office "PAPER HEART manages to work the meta mostly magically thanks to the sensibility brought by Yi, whose stand-up persona blends a childlike naviet with an almost perpetual state of shy embarrassment."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "PAPER HEART is refreshingly, almost defiantly inventive. A big part of its charm is the bespectacled and slightly addled Yi."USA Today "This diverting riff is as much a spoof of film-school self-seriousness as it is a sincere art project, enhanced by Yi's great, homemade puppets." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "Enjoying this wondrous wisp of a something is easy....Charlyne Yi is an enchantress."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] playful quasi-documentary....Yi is a unique tour guide..."Total Film12.66872

3 stars out of 5 -- "Brand is seductive to watch as he vamps his way across the various stages here, both public and private, working the hair-tossing insouciant artist thing to excellent effect."Los Angeles Times "GET HIM TO THE GREEK manages to sustain its hepped-up, manic energy for surprisingly long stretches....Byrne, in addition to being a good sport, has marvelous comic timing..."Movieline 4 stars out of 5 -- "Both Brand and Hill communicate as much with their facial expressions and bodies as they do with words....Brand shows flashes of genuine dramatic depth."Box Office "[Hill] makes the perfect foil, as passive and impressionable as Brand is reckless and impulsive..." -- Grade: BA.V. Club 3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie is funny in the way of THE HANGOVER about what trouble lads can get into when their senses are whirling."Chicago Sun-Times "It has a rambly, realistic tone, with one orgiastic mishap spilling into the next, and that tone keeps much of the action popping with surprise." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 4 -- "Brand's legit rock vocals make Snow's songs about venereal disease and bangers and mash actually kind of awesome."Premiere 3 stars out of 5 -- "Brand displays a winning ability to seem completely real, and he's at his funniest whenever Snow is being horrendously pretentious or incandescent with mock rage. Hill, meanwhile, is the perfect foil..."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "There are some wickedly funny lines, gross-out gags, parodies and cameos....The show is stolen by Sean Combs, playing the volatile label boss..."Uncut "[T]he result is a welcome complication of the post-SPINAL TAP bozo archetype....[Hill] impresses as a foil to a famous and dangerous egomaniac..."Sight and Sound12.17721

"[Firth] gives a tender and memorable performance....A pre-liberation romantic reverie that insists that love is love, period."Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "Fashion designer Tom Ford establishes himself as a filmmaker to celebrate from the very first sequence of his artfully constructed, heartfelt adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel A SINGLE MAN."Box Office 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Ford is a true visionary, but it's his humanity that gives the love story a ravishing, bruised grandeur."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "Designer Tom Ford's directorial debut is an aesthetic wonder....The visuals are gorgeous, and the melancholy mood is exquisitely evoked."USA Today "Moore is absolutely buoyant. A luscious lush, she oozes mod sophistication..."Los Angeles Times "[Mr. Firth delivers a] delicately shaded performance....Certainly, the director knows how to exploit his actor's reserve to terrific effect..."New York Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "Firth plays George superbly, as a man who prepares a face to meet the faces that he meets. He betrays very little emotion..."Chicago Sun-Times Included in Los Angeles Times's "Best Films Of 2009" -- "[A] movie of mesmerizing beauty..."Los Angeles Times "[A] movie of quiet but potent emotional power....The movie takes on the momentum and narrative tension of a thriller..."Washington Post "[T]his impeccably glamorous period piece is just about the most dazzling visual experience of the year."Movieline 4 stars out of 5 -- "On the strength of this debut, Ford has impressive potential as a filmmaker....He's managed to guide Colin Firth to his finest onscreen performance yet."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is impeccably composed, astonishingly self-assured debut filmmaking. A SINGLE MAN is patently a labour of love, and you can feel Ford's commitment to the content in every frame."Empire "It lets Colin Firth, who is superb as the numb, grieving hero, transmit a subtle range of experiences..."Sight and Sound 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A smart, stylish, and intimate film....Firth excels as the understated grieving protagonist..."Premiere9.443382

"[The film was] directed by Werner Herzog, a filmmaker and documentarian with a gleeful affinity for the aberrant....Rather than a conventional remake, it's a whole new take on the 1992 cult classic BAD LIEUTENANT..."Wall Street Journal "As Cage's Lieutenant Terence McDonagh roams the Katrina-ravaged Big Easy, Herzog doesn't so much direct him as hit his detonator."Rolling Stone "[T]his BAD LIEUTENANT is its own special fever-swamp of a movie, an anarchist film noir that seems, at times, almost as unhinged as its protagonist."New York Times 4 stars out of 4 -- "No one is better at this kind of performance than Nicolas Cage....He and Herzog were born to work together."Chicago Sun-Times "Herzog has done well by noir too, giving us exactly what he should -- crime, corruption, sarcasm, sex, sleaze and shadows all through the glass darkly."Los Angeles Times "BAD LIEUTENANT doesn't go where you expect, but it has a stubborn, trippy logic. Herzog stages the film as a modern noir..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's an intuitive, fearless performance that reminds you what a phenomenal actor Cage can be....Herzog delights in piercing holes through the conventional rotes of police procedurals..."Total Film "The most interesting aspect of the film is the way in which it shows family ties linking different levels of society, with virtually every character citing, rejecting or accepting familial obligations..."Sight and Sound8.392928

It's blissfully uncynical..." Los Angeles Times "...The story is not so much about romance as about goodheartedness, which is a rarer quality, and not so selfish. And Cage has a certain gentleness that brings out nice soft smiles on Fonda's face..." Chicago Sun-Times8.079285

It even has a hearty dose of charm, thanks mostly to the most outrageous performance by a child in recent memory."USA Today "Ms. Moretz is by far the best thing about the film: she holds the screen as gracefully as she executes a running back flip."New York Times "The film, based on the comic by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr., is grungily stylish and often funny..."Wall Street Journal "This shrewd mixture of slick comic-book mayhem, unmistakable sweetness and ear-splitting profanity is poised to be a popular culture phenomenon....Los Angeles Times "Directed by Matthew Vaughn with verve and a crisp, color-saturated visual sense, KICK-ASS should delight fans of the original comics and garden-variety action junkies as well."Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "KICK-ASS might be the most fun two hours you'll spend in a movie theater. It delivers the darkly comic laughs as well as the jaw-dropping action..."Premiere 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] mosh pit of a comic-book movie that dares you to dive into its anarchy."Rolling Stone "KICK-ASS is an intelligent meta-comic that deploys familiar superheroic tropes and archetypes to explore all that is fractured and flawed in our decidedly non-super humanity."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "All good, teen-savvy, pertinent stuff, spiked with laughs....Cage is a deadpan delight..."Total Film8.079285
