    A contemporary epic built both on the myths of its audience and the stories of its own universe, ChloΓ© Zhao's "Eternals" is a sumptuously crafted and thrilling piece of blockbuster filmmaking. Vastly entertaining and meaningful, Zhao's film instantly earns of place in the uppermost tier of its canon and lands as one of the year's best.

    Adding a little more polish and a little more Zac Efron to the formula the made its precursor a suitable success, Kenny Ortega's "High School Musical 2" finds the cast from Disney's original film emoting and singing through summer vacation at a high desert country club. The work is energetic and committed, and the experience offers the same kind of uptempo and good-natured teen drama that made Ortega's 2006 "High School Musical" click. This is enjoyable, lightweight stuff.

    A watchable drag, "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" packs a lot of noise and color into its two-hour and two-minute self while forgoing any nuance, style, or heart that might make the video game adaptation stand out.

    "Inception," at its most basic, is two things. It is a heist film dressed in science fiction conventions; and it is a study of a man trying to free himself from a near-suffocating past. "Inception," at its more complex, is a cerebral pop-masterpiece. It is an enthralling combination of thought-provoking, layered story-telling and sumptuous aesthetics enhanced by near-flawless editing, sound design, effects, and musical score. Driven by a pitch-perfect cast and the confident directorial hand of Christopher Nolan, "Inception" is a brilliant and unrivaled piece of filmmaking.

    An audacious blend of imagery and allegory, Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" is a film that may take multiple viewings to fully appreciate. On first viewing, however, the film bursts with colors, shapes, and a searing observation of the battle between youth culture and adult stolidity. Kubrick's film, based on the novel by Anthony Burgess, is a striking and layered piece of work.

    The plot of "A Clockwork Orange" revolves around Malcolm McDowell's Alex, the quintessential hooligan concerned with all…
