Into the Wild

Into the Wild reveals the sense of loss that drove Chris McCandless. It also shows that it isn't only his.

Mr. & Mrs Smith: Unrated Collector's Edition (2004)

Mr. & Mrs. Smith strips away the niceties of the classical narrative form to revel in pure spectacle, and to surprisingly pleasurable effect.

For all that goes wrong with The Break-Up, the most compelling question it raises has to do with the state of the romantic comedy.

Wedding Crashers (2005)

The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Wedding Crashers might have made it safe for adults to go back to big-screen comedies in 2005, but it was the latter that reminded those viewers that adulthood doesn't mean growing up -- at least in the traditional sense.
