The sprawling fantasy epic The Golden Compass storms into theaters this weekend, accompanied by a gaggle of smaller releases, including the highly buzzworthy flicks Juno, Atonement and Grace is Gone.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
The Golden Compass
"No amount of CGI wizardry or bear-on-bear action can save this movie from collapsing under the weight of its many structural flaws." [Full Review]
"An epic war-time love story...as beautiful as it is thought-provoking and soulful, Atonement is a December must-see." [Full Review]
"Guy Ritchie's latest is a mind-numbing, sanity-challenging debacle." [Full Review]
"A charming and sweetly sardonic tale of teen pregnancy...one of 2007's best and most enjoyable films." [Full Review]
Grace is Gone
"There were times when it felt almost too indie to me...but it's still a noteworthy effort." [Full Review]
"Despite a great cast and amusing plotline, The Amateurs falls flat." [Full Review]
