Posted Aug 22, 2010
27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) " This corny melodrama takes itself way too seriously, but it also seems perfectly targeted to its teen-romance devouring audience." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Posted Mar 21, 2010
83% The Ghost Writer (2010) " This multi-layered thriller is a tightening knot of noir fascination involving mysterious bodyguards, car chases, top-secret documents, the CIA and end even hidden codes." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 1, 2010
16% When in Rome (2010) " 'When in Rome' is a brainless mess of silly characters doing stupid things on camera. Everyone involved should be completely embarrassed." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Posted Nov 13, 2009

Posted Nov 1, 2009
83% Paranormal Activity (2009) " With 'Paranormal Activity,' Paramount and Oren Peli have teamed up to bring us one of the most unique horror experiences in quite some time." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Posted Jul 18, 2009

Posted May 23, 2009
26% The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009) " 'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past' lacks energy and originality, plus the characters are too shallow to care about. But Michael Douglas is delightful." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted May 10, 2009
89% Adventureland (2009) " 'Adventureland' is a sweet, heartfelt coming-of-age drama with loads of sensitivity and bigness of heart." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Apr 6, 2009
23% Fired Up (2009) " 'Fired Up!' has a great story to tell for sure, but it just doesn't make a good 'PG-13' movie." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 27, 2009
58% Taken (2009) " An exciting white-knuckle ride for action junkies and those who like to see the enemy get the raw end of a deal." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 2, 2009
51% Notorious (2009) " Failing to find a message to champion, this shiny, polished biopic glosses over many of the warts which continue to tarnish the accomplished rapper's legacy." — ReelTalk Movie Reviews
