Posted Aug 5, 2003
2.5/5 70% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) " Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines unfolds as a thrilling piece of entertainment, but it has a third act and ending that don't work and shouldn't ever work." — Film Threat

3/5 59% Men with Brooms (2002) " The plot of the comeback curlers isn't very interesting actually, but what I like about Men With Brooms and what is kind of special is how the film knows what's unique and quirky about Canadians." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
