20% Ball Don't Lie (2008) " Had Ball Don't Lie gone the straight linear route and changed the story so that our main character was actually working toward a concrete goal, perhaps the film would've shined." — Cinematical
Posted May 1, 2008
3.5/5 53% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) " The HIGHly-anticipated sequel to 2004's Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle comes just how you'd expect it: raunchy, wild, disgusting and completely absurd." — Cinematical
Posted Apr 9, 2008
3.5/5 84% Nights and Weekends (2008) " Nights and Weekends marks writer-director Joe Swanberg's fourth consecutive film at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and it's quite possibly his strongest work yet." — Cinematical
Posted Apr 9, 2008
4/5 83% A Necessary Death (2012) " As much as it doesn't seem like you're watching an intricate plot unfold, there's actually so much going on -- all of it layered; structured brilliantly." — Cinematical
Posted Apr 9, 2008
63% Super High Me (2007) " Super High Me is nowhere near the smartest or most thought-provoking documentary you will ever see, but it certainly delivers enough humor to keep even the non-stoners chuckling for an hour and a half." — Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2008
3.5/5 87% Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired (2008) " Is Polanski a great filmmaker who made a mistake, or a perverted coward who ran from the law instead of facing the music?" — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
4/5 56% A Complete History of My Sexual Failures (2010) " Sexual Failures is edited well, the score is great and while certain scenes feel a bit staged, Waitt is immediately likable and a ball to watch on the big screen." — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
3/5 23% Incendiary (2009) " Williams is magnificent in her role -- though they beat the living hell out of her, to a point where it almost becomes ridiculous." — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
4/5 54% Choke (2008) " Ultimately, Choke is really a film for the Palahniuk fans who've have been waiting years to see this book come to life." — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
3/5 17% Downloading Nancy (2008) " Downloading Nancy is a sick and twisted rollercoaster ride that climbs fast and drops slowly ... leaving you plenty of time to absorb its raw insanity along the way." — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
3/5 67% The Yellow Handkerchief (2010) " Yellow Handkerchief is just another quiet character piece that may make its way to theaters in limited release, but won't cause any waves." — Cinematical
Posted Feb 1, 2008
—— Purple Violets (2007) Cinematical
Posted Dec 1, 2007
3.5/5 51% Bee Movie (2007) " Here's the biggest problem most folks will have with Bee Movie: It's not Ratatouille." — Cinematical
Posted Nov 2, 2007
4/5 88% Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) " At 83 years-old, Lumet still manages to deliver this film in a captivating, edge-of-your-seat fashion." — Cinematical
Posted Oct 26, 2007
4/5 94% Gone Baby Gone (2007) " It doesn't appear to have enough juice to land a best picture Oscar nod, but it definitely has enough taste to linger in your mouth, heart and mind for a long time to come." — Cinematical
Posted Oct 26, 2007
4/5 68% The Darjeeling Limited (2007) " The first thing my friend said to me as the credits began to roll: "Loved it ... but the film won't make a dime at the box office."" — Cinematical
Posted Sep 27, 2007
2/5 15% The Brothers Solomon (2007) " In real life, if you met John (Arnett) and Dean Solomon (Will Forte), you'd probably walk away thinking they were either suffering from some mental disorder or serial killers in training." — Cinematical
Posted Sep 8, 2007
4/5 88% Superbad (2007) " Jonah Hill and Michael Cera displayed some of the best on-screen chemistry I've seen all year, and newcomer Christopher Mintz-Plasse squeezed his shtick in there at just the right moments." — Cinematical
Posted Aug 18, 2007
2/5 18% Rush Hour 3 (2007) " As it is now, it's just a messy plate of leftovers fancied up to include the number three in the title." — Cinematical
Posted Aug 11, 2007
3.5/5 84% Rocket Science (2007) " It's fun to watch an outsider try to succeed in a world full of outsiders, and for that reason alone, Rocket Science is worth the price of admission." — Cinematical
Posted Aug 11, 2007
4.5/5 90% The Simpsons Movie (2007) " If you don't have the urge to stand up and cheer as the end credits begin to roll, then you are not who this movie was created for." — Cinematical
Posted Jul 27, 2007
2/5 14% I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007) " While it might be enough to make you laugh -- like with the majority of his films -- it's far from memorable." — Cinematical
Posted Jul 20, 2007
3.5/5 52% Introducing the Dwights (2007) " It's sweet, quirky, sincere, and provides a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of those big-budgeted extravaganzas currently invading your local theater." — Cinematical
Posted Jul 4, 2007
1.5/5 7% License to Wed (2007) " Do they have what it takes to keep it cool and stay together long enough to get hitched? Trust me, you won't care." — Cinematical
Posted Jul 3, 2007
3/5 82% Live Free or Die Hard (2007) " Welcome to the new millennium John McClane, where the portions are huge but the quality isn't what it used to be." — Cinematical
Posted Jun 27, 2007
4.5/5 90% Knocked Up (2007) " We often feel like our hopes and dreams are over once a child enters the equation, but it's movies like this that help remind us it's only the beginning." — Cinematical
Posted Jun 26, 2007
3/5 56% Charlie Bartlett (2007) " Here's a film that carries a heavy message about the mis-use of prescription medication amongst today's teens, but does so in a very clever (and fun) way." — Cinematical
Posted Jun 26, 2007
3.5/5 40% Shrek the Third (2007) " Vibrant colors and finely-crafted backdrops pave the way for characters who, believe it or not, felt more alive in this world than they did back in those old books or cartoons." — Cinematical
Posted Jun 26, 2007
3/5 37% Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) " It's PG-rated summer popcorn fluff at its best, and while the new additions might irritate the hardcore FF fanatics, those simply looking for a check-your-brain-at-the-door night out at the movies will certainly surf away satisfied." — Cinematical
