3/5 68% The Darjeeling Limited (2007) " It's very much what I think Anderson intended - a light travelogue of small consequence, with a slight, though sincere and concerned effort to bring a heart back into his films." — Toledo Blade
Posted Mar 12, 2014
5/5 92% The Departed (2006) " Rude, profane, clever, hilarious, engrossing, crowd-pleasing, ridiculously entertaining." — Toledo Blade
Posted Feb 11, 2014
4/5 87% Howl's Moving Castle (2005) " Howl's Moving Castle is a visually wondrous, invigorating work of breathless invention and grandiosity, full of hushed pastoral glens, zeppelin blitzkriegs, whimsical machines, and blobs that wear straw hats. And it's not Miyazaki's finest." — Toledo Blade
Posted Nov 19, 2013
5/5 94% The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) " As the series grows in scope, so do the emotions. Jackson modulations of scale keep shifting between the vast and the intimate, but it's all so perfectly paced, you're gripping your chair throughout -- because it all feels so urgent." — Toledo Blade
Posted Nov 19, 2013
1/4 7% Undiscovered (2005) " There is not a single moment in the undistinguished Undiscovered that will do for [Pell] James what those couple of compassionate, moving minutes do in Jim Jarmusch's [Broken Flowers]." — Toledo Blade
Posted Jun 14, 2013
8% The New Guy (2002) " A very forgettable new teen comedy." — Toledo Blade
Posted Jun 11, 2013
0/4 6% Supercross (2005) " It's a bizarre, contradictory mess, a lousy promotion for a sport still unknown to many Americans" — Toledo Blade
Posted Jun 10, 2013
2/4 6% The Perfect Man (2005) " [Hilary Duff movies] never do solve their one nagging flaw: Duff's characters are remarkably self-possessed for teens but not enough to recognize the sitcoms they inhabit." — Toledo Blade
Posted Jun 7, 2013
1/4 6% Gigli (2003) " Here is a film that exists on another plane. It is so insane, so misguided, so Dadaesque, so Kafkaesque, you'll think I'm exaggerating. I'm not." — Toledo Blade
Posted Jun 5, 2013
5% The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002) " Pluto Nash will set lunar exploration back decades." — Toledo Blade
Posted May 23, 2013
3.5/4 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Sustains its joyful, unpretentious ridiculousness so perfectly that I secretly hoped the "6" meant "hours long"..." — Chicago Tribune
Posted May 23, 2013
73% Peur(s) du Noir (Fear(s) of the Dark) (2007) Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 17, 2009
2/4 33% Knowing (2009) " Knowing has the evangelical fervor of a movie that feels as if it were made during W's first term. Which is to say, Knowing is as potent a slice of disaster porn as Left Behind. It dabbles in faith and doubt and has no patience for f" — Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 19, 2009
1.5/4 25% Friday the 13th (2009) " An SUV of dramatically varied teens (sluts, nerdy sluts, one black guy, other sluts) visit Camp Crystal Lake. Pot is smoked. Sex is had by all. Also, topless water skiing." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Feb 13, 2009
3/4 58% Taken (2009) " Taken, which tells the story of how Liam Neeson blows a gasket and flies off to France and kills 75 Albanians in 90 minutes, is crisp, efficient and deeply insane." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jan 30, 2009
1/4 19% Dark Streets (2008) " Dark Streets lost me early, real early, like still-adjusting-my-eyes-in-a-dark-theater early: Welcome to the blues, growls the entertainer with the mohawk and the full-length ringmaster gown." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Dec 12, 2008
3.5/4 52% Nothing Like the Holidays (2008) " It's the modest goal of a modest little picture like this--to capture something heartfelt and real, finding anyone doing anything and meaning it, regardless of how patently false the situation seems." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Dec 11, 2008
2.5/4 37% Transporter 3 (2008) " It's hard not to smile." — Chicago Tribune
