Consensus: “Sideways” is Alexander Payne’s best film. This film is a deft blend of dark humor, touching romance and troubled characters.
Consensus: “Undertow” is an under the radar masterpiece from director David Gordon Green. Green’s style is hypnotic and dream like.
Consensus: “Ray” is a solid musical biopic with a mesmerizing performance by Jamie Foxx.
Consensus: “Saw” is kind of a unique horror flick that places their characters in the middle of a mystery then asks them to make sadistic choices. I liked it but the more I thought of it afterwards the less sense it really made.
Consensus: “After The Sunset” well made but has nothing new or interesting to add to this genre.
Consensus: The sequel to 2001’s “Bridget Jone’s Diary” has the same wonderful performances but it essentially recycles the same plot.
Consensus: “Finding Neverland” is an absorbing look at the life of author J.M. Barrie. This is a fascinating look at the period and events that lead to inspiring him to write “Peter Pan”.
