2/5 41% Everyone's Hero (2006) " Young boys may be enchanted by the inspirational adventure, but for anyone over the age of nine, Yankee's journey is ultimately a dull one paved with good intentions." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Sep 30, 2006
3/5 54% The Protector (Tom yum goong) (Warrior King) (2005) " By the end you're so invigorated that narrative issues seem like an afterthought." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Sep 23, 2006
1.5/5 22% Barnyard (2006) " Strictly for kids, and, as the three or four people who saw Oedekerk's previous directing effort, Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, can attest, the writer/director tends to stretch even throwaway jokes minutes past the punch line." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Sep 23, 2006
0/5 4% Material Girls (2006) " The villain (a greedy corporate man of some sort) isn't very fleshed out, but it's hard to believe that he's any worse than the two self-serving, appearance-obsessed protagonists, with whom the film asks young girls everywhere to identify." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Sep 2, 2006
1.5/5 18% Shadowboxer (2005) " There's no glee here, just a handful of glum characters stuck in an unending cycle of sex, violence, and heavy-handed preaching." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Aug 19, 2006
1/5 36% Accepted (2006) " It's an obvious nod to Rock 'n' Roll High School that mostly serves as a grim reminder of how far comedies about the education system have fallen." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Aug 17, 2006
2/4 40% Scoop (2006) " Scoop suffers from the same problem as much of Allen's recent work: Even when the witty banter clicks, it seems stale." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 27, 2006
2.5/5 56% The King (2006) " The many possible ways to read the film might be more fruitful if Marsh's direction was more assured." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 15, 2006
2/5 21% You, Me and Dupree (2006) " Not that the film needed to head into darker territory, but sidestepping even half of the clich├ęs of the final act may keep the film from feeling so uneven and disposable. But, as far as disposable entertainment goes, it gets the job done." — Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 13, 2006
2.5/5 75% Look Both Ways (2006) " It's the type of film in which a character sits next to his work acquaintance for a few moments, then asks, 'Do you believe in God?'" — Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 8, 2006
2/5 36% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) " Racing junkies would be better off browsing the myriad online drifting videos where the camera doesn't cut and the people don't speak. Film buffs would be better off watching Two-Lane Blacktop, but they probably already knew that." — Austin Chronicle
