Posted Jan 3, 2006
2.5/4 44% Casanova (2005) " Had the filmmakers aspired to match Ledger's sensibility, Casanova might have been something more than a frothy, forgettable diversion; as is, many should enjoy its carefully calculated manipulations." — Los Angeles Daily News

21% Joe Somebody (2001) " A movie based on Charles Atlas ads would be both more realistic and more entertaining than the moist, dithering hackwork slinking into theaters under the moniker Joe Somebody." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 21, 2001
80% Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) " Rowling's glorious contribution to the world with the 'Harry Potter' series was in exciting a young generation to the pleasures of reading.
