The shoddiness of the picture is part of the charm; the freakishness of the characters is diverting; and the mutant mayhem, musical gags, sexual jokes, and utter absurdity of the plot maintain interest. Review

Unfortunately, Neeson’s character design is the only tried-and-true one here; the supporting roles fail to muster any creativity. Review

There’s also slapstick and physical fumbles, but it’s only a matter of time before Babe’s guilt gets the better of her, transitioning the awkward, sweet, sentimental love story into one of tragedy and heartbreak and commentary on greed, moochers, and the truly needy – perpetually kept down by the excesses of the ultra rich.

Fortunately, the script is smart enough to let the film conclude with Pacino returning for the last word – a sagacious decision that brings back the one element that truly excels. It also helps that the movie has such a continuously heartwarming and funny vibe. Review

Though it’s fueled by memorable moments of dippy lampooning, it also carries on a touch too long; it’s quite funny but ultimately not as polished as it could be. Review

The first half of the film is a fairly straightforward biopic, zipping through the years with montages and highlights to chronicle Gehrig’s early career... Review

The premise is chronological and original, resulting in an absolutely perfect combination of cartoonish nuttiness, deliriously nonsensical turns, and naturally-flowing comical interactions. Review

Sadly, only faithful fans of his films will enjoy rewatching Tenet until they pick up on a few of the revelations, while everyone else will likely be content walking away mystified and only marginally entertained. Review

It’s a strange combination that really shouldn’t work (part spoof, part real thriller), yet it manages to be both a convincing monster movie at specific moments and a gut-busting comedy at others. Review

But despite the narrative shortcomings, many of the gags are outstanding – even simple one-liners and jokes written on items in backgrounds. Review

With its limited dialogue, Bambi succeeds in telling a moving story predominantly through imagery. And some of these artistic sequences are exceptional... Review

Garbo gives a breathtakingly moving performance, making the most of scenes in which she sacrifices personal happiness for someone else’s potential; during close-ups of great emotional pain, shedding completely believable tears; and during soul-shattering reunions – or confrontations – full of purposeful lies and inevitable tragedy.

Part heist, part thriller, part road movie, part buddy-cop chuckler, part actioner, part crime caper, part murder-mystery, and part romantic comedy – with a number of other elements sprinkled on top – Silver Streak moves swiftly and unpredictably, keeping up the amusement even with its overlong running time and the steady diminishment of jokes in favor of heightening suspense.

Yet there’s also an eerie beauty to the picture, chiefly in the scenery and marginally in the premise, during which few decisions trump coming to the aid of a damsel in distress. Review

The running time is a touch too long, spreading the laughs thinner for the sake of drama and inevitable confrontations, but it creates an opportunity for a heavy-hitting revelation – and eventual reversal. Review

Keeping in line with standard sci-fi monster movies, human villains tend to be just as repulsive as the otherworldly intruder; antagonists are quick to sacrifice lives in the name of science. This is made more potent by excellent acting and an adherence to apposite severity; here, there’s no time for levity. Review

Every time the action gets going, demonstrating a knack for modern choreography, the intrusive soundtrack kicks in, distracting with a pitifully incompatible lineup of popular tunes, which induces cringes rather than awe. Review

When the focus is on romantic comedy, the film is breezy and amusing; but when it switches to dramas involving fundraising and campaigning and clashes for political gain, it grows stickier, since it doesn’t approach these topics with sincerity. Review

The dialogue is also superb, bringing these relatable characters and their grounded situations an extraordinary sense of authenticity and hilarity – even when they’re caught in awkward moments that could only ever happen in the movies. Review
