54% Allah Made Me Funny: Live in Concert (2008) " Allah may have made these men funny, but he didn't bestow much in the way of filmmaking skills." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2008
1.5/4 43% Death Race (2008) " A movie in which road rage is justified. Yours will be, too, if you spend $10 on this." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2008
2.5/4 48% Bottle Shock (2008) " Rickman's fish-out-of-water act (in farm country, the man never loses his suit and tie) makes for Bottle Shock's sunniest moments." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Aug 6, 2008
39% The Stone Angel (2007) " Old lady on the road takes a memory trip, giving Burstyn a chance to shine." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jul 11, 2008
2/4 51% Nim's Island (2008) " I'm not sure what's more depressing: seeing potential tween megastar Abigail Breslin underused or watching Jodie Foster clutching a Progresso soup can for dear life and smacking head-first into a tree." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 4, 2008
40% The Grand (2008) " [Director] Penn could not have selected a more spoof-worthy venue than the world of high-stakes Texas Hold 'Em, and he has packed his film with actors -- many of them sitcom or sketch comedy stars -- who get the point of the exercise." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 21, 2008
2.5/4 81% The Business of Being Born (2008) " Contending that America's mothers would be far better off if deliveries were taken out of the hands of obstetricians and hospitals, director/producer Abby Epstein and executive producer Ricki Lake will push buttons, but they won't jab them." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 18, 2008
3.5/4 98% The Life of Reilly (2007) " Assembled from Reilly's final performance of Save It for the Stage in North Hollywood, Life of Reilly is as charming and disarmingly affecting as the man himself." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 9, 2007
2.5/4 33% Martian Child (2007) " You might expect a serious-minded movie about a troubled kid who really thinks he's from Mars to confront the fact that this kid really is troubled. Not so much, here." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 2, 2007
3/4 82% Quantum Hoops (2007) " These teams may be genuinely awful, or simply overmatched, but [director]Greenwald honors them, their brainy players and their Job-like coaches alike." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 2, 2007
23% Raising Flagg (2007) " Feels like a TV movie." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 28, 2007
3/4 41% December Boys (2007) " Radcliffe -- in full benevolent leadership -- clearly has a future as a young adult performer once he shelves Harry Potter's wand once and for all." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 14, 2007
3/4 93% Blame It on Fidel (La Faute a Fidel) (2006) " Gavras' film captures both the time period and the queasy inconsistencies of childhood. And in Kervel, Gavras has found a real gem." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 14, 2007
2/4 72% I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With (2006) " Jeff Garlin, the former Second City actor who plays Larry David's manager on Curb Your Enthusiasm, has spun his solo show into a movie that's, alas, pretty light on laughs." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 14, 2007
1.5/4 9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) " At least they don't have the girls dolled up as the next freshman class at Lap Dancing Tech." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Aug 3, 2007
2.5/4 48% Macbeth (2006) " Grunge and slickness substitute for eeriness or any hint of psychological terror." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jul 27, 2007
2.5/4 36% Hollywood Dreams (2007) " This might play funnier and less off-putting were if Frederick's Margie was not so disquietingly desperate." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 18, 2007
2/4 45% Brooklyn Rules (2007) " The friends, the neighborhood, the loyalty, the bloodshed, Alec Baldwin playing a bad-ass wise guy... feel free to stop me when all this stops sounding familiar." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 18, 2007
2/4 27% Downtown: A Street Tale (2007) " [Director] Zielinski's attempts at serving up grunge and grittiness largely fall flat. Scenes of sex and drug use are typically accompanied by a swooning and intrusive soundtrack." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 11, 2007
2.5/4 50% Duck (2005) " Possessed of one of the most hangdog faces in Hollywood, Hall meshes expertly with the movie's hopeful sadness. That we watch him toting a live duck around without once losing his dignity -- or breaking out in laughter -- has to count for something." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 11, 2007
2/4 19% The Ex (2007) " Bateman, who played a good guy on Arrested Development, proves rather easy to despise, especially once his malevolence loses its comic edge." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 11, 2007
2.5/4 28% Next (2007) " Next is a series of artfully choreographed linked pursuits with Moore convincing as the hard-nosed leader of the pursuit team." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 27, 2007
3.5/4 43% In the Land of Women (2007) " Apart from leaning a bit much on his soundtrack and letting Olympia Dukakis indulge her crazy-granny jones, Kasdan does his work with a largely steady hand." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 20, 2007
3/4 64% The TV Set (2007) " The TV Set, written and directed by longtime tube toiler Jake Kasdan, gets it both right and funny." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 7, 2007
1.5/4 8% The Reaping (2007) " Amidst such mayhem, there isn't much for a two time Oscar winner like Swank to do with herself, except reach out soulfully to the girl who may be the Antichrist." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 6, 2007
3/4 34% TMNT (2007) " The action is breakneck and practically uninterrupted. We're talking a young boy's dream come true." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 23, 2007
2.5/4 65% Antikörper (Antibodies) (2007) " As an exercise in watching a bad guy burrow too deeply into a good guy's head, Antibodies proves more gross than psychologically unsettling." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Feb 16, 2007
2/4 18% Shadowboxer (2005) " Mirren and Gooding are interesting -- and sexy -- to watch together. Once she leaves the film, the picture loses a bit of its uniqueness." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 30, 2006
3/4 66% Screamers (2006) " Garapedian and producer Peter McAlevey offer much to ponder, not to mention a group with more than fame on its mind." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 8, 2006
2.5/4 19% Two Weeks (2006) " Stockman's attempts to distinguish Two Weeks from the formulaic family drama weepies are largely in vain." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 1, 2006
3/4 34% 3 Needles (2006) " 3 Needles, Thom Fitzgerald's globe-spanning investigation of the effects of AIDS, may ultimately be a call to unity, but there's an extreme amount of despair and misery before we get to hear that trumpet blare." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 1, 2006
3/4 54% Flicka (2006) " A coming-of-age tale that proves as gentle as its subject is wild." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 20, 2006
1.5/4 20% The Marine (2006) " There's not much about The Marine that's even slightly diverting. Including, alas, John Cena, the film's villain-dispatching star." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 13, 2006
0.5/4 12% Little Man (2006) " Mr. Palminteri's primary duties include glowering at henchmen Bruno and Roscoe, saying 'get me that diamond' a few times and, ultimately, taking a toy airplane to the crotch." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jul 14, 2006
1.5/4 11% Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) " This movie is intended for young audiences whose animal fix could be infinitely better-served watching creatures at a bark park or petting zoo." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jun 16, 2006
2/4 20% The Wild (2006) " The Wild is not a sequel to last year's delightful Madagascar. Rather it's a half-baked zoo animal quest story buoyed by a father-and-son-learn-a-valuable-lesson reconciliation." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 14, 2006
2.5/4 22% Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing & Charm School (2006) " With a few too many characters and plot fibers to track and about 100 minutes to do it, Miller goes for easy resolutions and leaves a lot of questions unanswered." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 31, 2006
3/4 72% Eight Below (2006) " Dog fanciers and lovers of white-out arctic-looking scenery should be plenty pleased." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Feb 17, 2006
3.5/4 46% Hoodwinked (2005) " The resulting ride is nearly irresistible." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 16, 2005
3/4 32% The Baxter (2005) " It contains a wry, throwback charm." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 2, 2005
3/4 25% Mindhunters (2005) " This is a roller coaster that's actually fun to ride." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 13, 2005
2.5/4 63% Ladies in Lavender (2005) " A sweet and easy tale, certainly, but is it really the strongest use of a couple of grand Dames?" — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 29, 2005
2.5/4 52% Ice Princess (2005) " This is a safe, edgeless cinematic after-school special." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 18, 2005
3/4 25% Dot the I (2003) " The revelation of the film is not Bernal but D'Arcy, who loafs from a callow throwaway part into something a heck of a lot more interesting." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 11, 2005
0/4 6% Son of the Mask (2005) " If there is any thought more singularly horrifying than that of a mask franchise, may it never enter this critic's humble noggin." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Feb 18, 2005
3/4 61% Swimming Upstream (2004) " Mulcahy has the good sense not to make those important races big, climactic scenes. Their results are not what's important here." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Feb 4, 2005
3/4 35% Racing Stripes (2005) " The movie has its charm." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 14, 2005
1.5/4 50% A Letter To True (2004) " Weber is a sly raconteur with great names to drop, and his doggie footage is a kick." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 7, 2005
1.5/4 5% Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie (Yûgiô: Gekijô-ban) (2004) " Games shouldn't be movies. Yu-Gi-Oh! is the (barely) living proof." — Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Aug 13, 2004
2.5/4 11% A Cinderella Story (2004) " The premise -- scripted by Leigh Dunlap with a reported uncredited polish by Callie Khouri -- is largely preposterous, but Rosman embraces rather than evades those obstacles." — Los Angeles Daily News
