Underdog (2007)

Underdog is so piecemeal it should come with a roll of duct tape.

Part 5: The Return of the Auteur

That noise you heard near the start of the new millennium was the creative din of a brash new breed of filmmakers tearing down the traditions of mainstream moviemaking. Their motion picture mission statements -- including the ones featured on this list -- remain the rulebook for new generations of anxious film artists.

Rising Son - The Legend of Skateboarder Christian Hosoi (2006)

Christian Hosoi was the coolest of the cool, a brash and rowdy pin-up idol whose talent took him to the apex of the skateboarding world during the '80s, only to leave him flailing when the world moved on without him.

Film

Monkey Business (Part 4: August)

In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

My Name is Earl: The Complete First Season

At the end of "Joy's Wedding," Earl lets loose to Young MC's "Bust a Move" his eyes brightening and his mouth melting into a blissful grin. It's a sublimely goofy moment.

My Name Is Earl

What's so wonderful about My Name Is Earl is that it's a comedy with its heart in the right place and everything else gleefully in the gutter.

My Name Is Earl

Earl's not the sharpest tool in the barn, but his learning process made for entertaining TV.

The Ballad of Jack and Rose (2005)

They inhabit an ideal world, located, a title helpfully informs you, on an isolated island off the Eastern Coast of the United States, 1986. They coo and cuddle, he coughs ominously, and they seem momentarily content, absorbed in one another. And then comes trouble.

The Incredibles (2004)

Its snark makes The Incredibles one of those cartoons that mainstream, self-knowing adults might appreciate along with their kids.

Dreamcatcher (2003)

One thing you can say about 'Dreamcatcher': you can't really say one thing about it.

A Guy Thing (2003)

A movie of this sort depends on a relentless illogic.
