The critics have weighed in on their picks for the best films of the year. The Oscar season is ramping up.
So far, this much is clear: People love Ratatouille, Charlie Wilsons War, Juno and The Bourne Ultimatum (pictured), among others. In fact, each of those films received more than an 80% approval rating from the Rotten Tomatoes website, which compiles reviews from across the nation.
But if you werent taken by Junos snappy dialogue, didnt "get" The Savages or prefer Bond over Bourne, theres no reason to feel insecure. There are critics who are in your corner, sticking their necks out to offer contrarian takes on some of 2007s most beloved films.
Take a look at those who dared to speak out against the awards-season favorites.
