director: takeshi kitano
The dreams of a child and the adult as a child are two of the themes in this highly effective tale of an unlikely friendship. A far cry from Kitano's earlier work this beautifully shot film is hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time.

kill bill
director: quentin tarantino
The brilliant directorial debuts of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction seem to have taken everything out of Quentin Tarantino as his latest effort sprays blood and campy, over- acted scenes more than the bodily fluids and amateurish thespian efforts of a Ron Jeremy film. This is not so much homage to martial arts films of the seventies as it is to chop sockey chick fights and samurai swordsmanship--slicing and dicing when it should have been writing and re-writing.

kill bill 2
director: quentin tarantino
Technically not in part two, but just try and stop me: Daryl Hanna as an assassin/nurse wearing an eyepatch which has a little Red Cross symbol on it is the most wonderful thing ever. I personally think that Quentin Tarantino is a self-absorbed, cokehead maniac; but, and that said, he cannot make a movie which is not great.

The dinosaur chase scene was too long. Hold Tight, Monkey!

director: bill condon
Great performances by Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, and Peter Sarsgaard - plus lots and lots and lots and lots of talking about sex (with some actual sex). Interesting overview of Kinsey's work interspersed with flashes of humor featuring John Lithgow reprising his role from Footloose, Chris O'Donnell reminding us why he doesn't seem to be working that much anymore, and Timothy Hutton doing a decent impression of the actor J.K. Simmons (no, really).

knocked up
director: judd apatow
Knocked Up is ripe with humour and light on plot, a good distraction from the pain of every day worklife. Condoms not required.

kung fu hustle
director: stephen chow
Successfully surpassing all previous kung fu movies' sorry attempts at humor and lazy, inept fight sequences with its subtle comic depth and superlative choreography, this film kicks more asses than you can find at a republican presidential convention. Beware of fighting frogs, stand clear of the lion's voice, and always, always, always respect the hand of the Buddha.
