The Holiday
Beautiful, flawless film is both an homage to and an update of the classy romantic comedies of the 1940s.
Mel Gibson’s odd Mayan epic is a unique, great-looking film that’s a bit too in love with its own carnage.
Blood Diamond
The acting of Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou holds your attention through a predictable storyline.
Unaccompanied Minors
Small kids may laugh as a rascally gang of kids traveling alone run wild during a Christmas Eve blizzard.
Coffee Date
Wry romantic comedy of sexual confusion deftly turns increasingly serious without losing its sense of humor.
Tale of a heroin-addicted couple (Abbie Cornish and Heath Ledger) is careful not to glamorize drugs.
The Architect
Strong performances give a firm foundation to this tale of an architect whose building and family are crumbling.
