"Jackson worked fresh magic at his Weta studios in his native New Zealand, where he had Kong do battle with prehistoric predators on Skull Island..." Rolling Stone "[T]he movie seals Jackson's reputation: He's the most gifted big-picture artist working today....What resonates is the story, which is a very human tale of compassion, greed, loss, bravery, creativity, foolishness, and love." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "[Jackson] succeeds through a combination of modesty and reckless glee, topping himself at every turn and reveling in his own showmanship." New York Times "Jackson is a visionary filmmaker who is not only a technical wizard but also a master storyteller."USA Today "[A] witty comment on the darkness at the heart of adventure stories, a bazillion-dollar spectacle that reserves the right to question the morality of spectacles, and, mostly, a tender love story about a melancholy girl and her tragically misunderstood monkey."Los Angeles Times Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "[I]t has a marvelous fairy-tale kinetic grandeur....KING KONG attains a primal-pop romantic glory..." Entertainment Weekly "Once in the lost world, Jackson reproduces the breathless pacing of the 1933 film, tipping from one huge set-piece to the next..." Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's made with love, care, and tremendous intelligence.This is still a moving love story at heart..." Uncut "[The] picture does a great job of creating the period of the storytelling....The fantastic mix is energetic and invigorating." Widescreen Review42.96252

"[T]he spirit of the book is very much intact....[The film uses] available technology to capture both the mythic power of Lewis's tale and, even better, its charm."New York Times "Its epic scope and elaborate battles will raise comparisons with Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy..."USA Today "[The film] remains remarkably faithful to Lewis' story, and the innocence of his passion begins to shine through. It's there, most spectacularly, in Aslan, the lion-king messiah." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly "[Swinton] is magisterially wonderful as the witch-queen of Narnia."Sight and Sound 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[W]e get dazzling special effects, battle sequences, and a menagerie of cool creatures."Premiere0.2869523

"Gollum is back in all his scrofulous glory, and several set pieces fill the screen with a wealth of detail that would have left Tolkien reeling in astonishment."Wall Street Journal "At its best, it recaptures the RINGS movies breadth, detail, and staggering sense of beauty. Jackson retains the sense of an entire world created on a vast scope for a film."A.V. Club "Freemans the all-too-human face of Jacksons gargantuan vision, his performance indicating that the emotional stakes will keep pace with the ramped-up challenges ahead..."Total Film Its a far more humorous fantasy than RINGS, seeing absurdity in grandeur and vice versa.Sight and Sound0.1820675

"[T]his grossly engrossing speculative fiction bears Jackson's blood-spattered fingerprints but also heralds first-time feature director Neill Blomkamp as a nimble talent to watch."Variety 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[The filmmakers] have stealthily laid the artifacts of these dark days beneath the guise of an Alien invasion movie that is intense, graphically novelistic and just funny enough to keep thoroughly entertained, even while the subtext is of a very serious nature."Box Office "[I]t's a helluva movie. No true fan of science fiction -- or, for that matter, cinema -- can help but thrill to the action, high stakes and suspense built around a very original chase movie."Hollywood Reporter 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "You'll be wowed by Copley. His heart-rending tour de force deserves comparison to Jeff Goldblum's in THE FLY."Rolling Stone "DISTRICT 9 fuses science fiction mayhem and biting social commentary as well as any film since STARSHIP TROOPERS. It's the rare alien invasion story that has the aliens running scared."A.V. Club "A thinking person's sci-fie movie from an inventive director...DISTRICT 9 revels in the fun of mashing up narrative styles..." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 4 -- With its clever faux documentary style, this is the most imaginative science-fiction movie to come along in years.USA Today "DISTRICT 9 is very smart sci-fi, but that's just the beginning; it's also a scathing social satire hidden inside a terrific action thriller....It's a blast..."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] seamless merger of the mockumentary and special effects. And there's a harsh parable here about the alienation and treatment of refugees."Chicago Sun-Times "[O]ften inventive....DISTRICT 9 begins in cinma vrit style with a collection of talking heads..."Wall Street Journal "[The filmmakers] embed their ideas in an ingenious, propulsive and suspenseful genre entertainment, one that respects your intelligence even as it makes your eyes pop..."New York Times 4 stars out of 5 -- [A] fascinating sci-fi specimen....The historical resonances only enhance the films blazing neo-realism, as does the dizzying, docu-style camerawork...Total Film Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The Best Films Of The Year" -- "[A] madly original social drama/sci-fi thriller set in South Africa..."Entertainment Weekly Included in Los Angeles Times's "Best Films Of 2009" -- "[I]nventively fresh...at the same time reflective of the best of the genre's social commentary traditions."Los Angeles Times Ranked #8 in Rolling Stone's "The 10 Best Movies Of 2009" -- "[It] deserves one of those 10 Oscar spots for Best Picture."Rolling Stone Ranked #7 in USA Today's "Top Ten Films Of 2009."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "Blomkamp's wry satirical parallels to apartheid work pretty well here."Uncut0.1137922

"Imaginatively filmed by Peter Sova, PUSH has a dizzying, chaotic energy that pulls you along."New York Times "[T]he execution is fresh, earnest and inoffensive. It's a gussied-up knockoff of a Scorsese mob movie, shellacked with an opaque sheen of Clancy-style espionage, stir-fried with a bit of Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and the Wachowski brothers."Washington Post 3 stars out of 5 -- "PUSH explodes into action....It's an ambitious, original effort..."Total Film0.165507
