Shrek the Third

With cleverly-written, well-voiced, all-star humor and impeccable animation, Shrek the Third is marred only by a few typical Hollywood worldview elements and some scatological humor.

 
Shutter Island

Dreamlike and full of haunting imagery and music, Shutter Island is based on a novel by Dennis Lehane and is a spectacular downer with several moments of great emotional anguish. But it ends on such a grim note that it's hard to imagine anyone enjoying the film.

Sicko

Michael Moore makes a devastating point with his newest movie. He shows us that the American healthcare system has become inaccessible, ineffective and frighteningly corrupt.

Side Effects

The final product is strangely unsatisfying, moving into erotic, even perverse areas unsuited to Soderbergh's smooth, cold visual style.

Signs

Signs is an example of moviemaking at its best!

 
Silver Linings Playbook

It's anything but a typical romantic comedy. Silver Linings Playbook is more like that genre's slightly unhinged cousin.

Simplistic Melodrama Mires Visually Stunning Duchess

A metaphor common to period pieces is how opulent exteriors often mask sordid realities. It’s certainly a staple of The Duchess, although the metaphor isn’t restricted to the film’s themes. It expands to its quality as well.

Simpsons Movie, The

A feature-length movie based on the animated TV series, The Simpsons Movie includes all the antics, both positive and negative, that those familiar with the show expect. Such antics will prove too much for some Christian fans of the show, while others may see them, in context, as meaningful satire.

 
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Tries to cram four stories into just over 90 minutes. Star-studded and easy on the eyes, but lacks a method to its shock-jock madness.

 
Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

For kids who have been spoiled by "Nemo" style animation and color, this animated movie may look too cartoonish and drab. But I liked the imagination of the monsters they faced and the colors of the kingdom ? it reminded me of the last "Star Wars" movie.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, The

Proving that popular books can be beautifully adapted for the big screen, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 has all the verve and spunk of the original as the four friends are now wrestling with being college-age girls.

 
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The

"The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" starts slowly but gently piques the interest within about fifteen minutes. While watching, I wondered if the genuine trust portrayed among the group of friends could work in the real world. I’d like to think it could, and I hope my teens will know the joy of such loyalty.

 
Sitter, The

Starring Jonah Hill, this bawdy comedy takes the premise of 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting and adds lots of raunch.

Skeleton Twins, The

Brother-sister reconciliation story goes to some dark places, and doesn't allow viewers to laugh all of them off.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

Every now and then, a film comes along that bends the rules and gives us a new genre. Often, when directors try to do that, it’s a monumental disaster, but first-time director Kerry Conran has managed to combine state-of-the-art technology with classic filmmaking in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" – and it works, splendidly, for a unique spin.

Skyfall

James Bond and his 23rd film are exactly alike: each has lost a step, but both still get the job done.

 
Slackers

Slackers is a great example of how Hollywood wastes film and advertising money.

 
Sleepwalking

With the basic elements of most Lifetime made-for-TV movies, a slow-moving Sleepwalking keeps getting worse as the minutes tick by. Not only is the writing formulaic, but the situations are so unbelievably horrible that even when redemption seems in sight it never materializes.

 
Sleuth

This remake of the 1972 classic of the same name has been given some distinctly new twists. Based on the successful stage production by Anthony Shaffer, it featured Lawrence Olivier as Wyke and Michael Caine as Tindle, in Jude Law’s current role.

Slow Burn

Slow Burn moves along at a brisk pace. Too brisk, really, at just 93 minutes, which adds to the challenge of trying to follow the plot. Some will be put off by the film’s overt sexuality as well—an overt contrivance which takes every advantage of the leading lady’s curves.
