1.5/4 0% Beer for My Horses (2008) " Like Middle Age Crazy and Ode to Billie Joe, Beer for My Horses belongs in that small but not exactly elite company of movies based on hit country songs." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 8, 2008
2.5/4 72% Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour (2008) " Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus is Bubble Yum for the eyes and ears. But given the demographic, that works." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 1, 2008
2/4 88% 3:10 to Yuma (2007) " If the original overplayed its naiveté, the update of 3:10 to Yuma overplays its cynicism only to sell it out at the end." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 7, 2007
2.5/4 13% September Dawn (2007) " If September Dawn is a kind of Western, it's a Western utterly devoid of heroism or the usual archetypes. But the core message transcends time: Hatred laced with religious fanaticism is a toxic blend." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 23, 2007
3/4 79% Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) " This is a darker, more tormented Harry Potter than we have ever seen onscreen." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 10, 2007
2/4 19% One Night With the King (2006) " While Dupont is lovely and sweet, the script leaves her motivations largely open and she's not enough of an actress to fill in the blanks." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 28, 2006
2.5/4 33% Flyboys (2006) " Flyboys does an excellent job of re-creating the confusion, speed and peril of fighting in the clouds with machine guns mounted on rickety planes." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 22, 2006
3/4 80% Miracle (2004) " Miracle has the feel of a fairy tale populated by real people." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 5, 2004
3/4 79% Open Range (2003) " Costner doesn't seek to reinvent the classic Westerns as much as simply honor them. On those modest terms, he succeeds." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 15, 2003
1.5/4 8% Gods and Generals (2003) " So long-winded that it sometimes feels like the Civil War in real time." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 20, 2003
3/4 92% Standing In The Shadows of Motown (2002) " As a belated nod to some neglected all-stars, Standing in the Shadows of Motown is cultural history of the best kind: informative, revealing and richly entertaining." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 5, 2002
2/4 32% Windtalkers (2002) " Unfortunately, contrived plotting, stereotyped characters and Woo's over-the-top instincts as a director undermine the moral dilemma at the movie's heart." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 14, 2002
74% Songcatcher (2001) " Well-served by its stars." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 28, 2001
99% A Hard Day's Night (1964) " More than anything else, the movie is a snapshot of how much fun Beatlemania really was." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
