Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
79% The Raid 2 (2014) " Stylishly shot, edited with a lot of confidence in the audience's ability to follow parallel action, and ... faster and more brutal than anything else on the market." — Film Comment Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2014
93% Journey To The West (2014) " A kung fu comedy, a Chinese fairy story, a Buddhist action movie, a prequel to a mega-series that makes James Cameron's ambitions look puny, Chow's Journey to the West is everything that is good about China's mega-blockbuster inclinations." — Film Comment Magazine
Posted Apr 21, 2014
85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) " Hollywood is particularly unsuited to producing sensation cinema these days." — Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 5, 2013
83% JCVD (Van Dammage) (2008) " Think of it as Sunset Bloodsport with Jean-Claude as Norma Desmond." — Slate
Posted Jun 10, 2013
48% Ong Bak 2 (2009) " Nourished on anemic action sequences full of shaky-cams, rapid-fire editing, and quick cutaways, American audiences are not prepared for Jaa's 20-minute essays on human bodies causing massive trauma." — Slate
Posted Oct 22, 2009
55% Sukiyaki Western Django (2008) " While the presence of Quentin Tarantino in the cast invokes comparisons to Kill Bill, Miike's movie is far more self-assured." — Slate
Posted Aug 28, 2008
88% Darkon (2006) " Joins the ranks of movies like Hoop Dreams and Murderball as one of the great documentary dissections of how Americans play." — Slate
Posted Nov 12, 2007
71% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) " The first hour of this lean, mean, 95-minute scream machine is so tasty that it redeems the predictable conclusion." — Slate
Posted May 10, 2007
12% An American Haunting (2006) " It's not a true story. If lying is the latest trend in American pop culture (cf James Frey, Kaavya Viswanathan), then An American Haunting is on the cutting edge." — Slate
Posted May 4, 2006
23% RV (2006) " RV is another disturbing entry in the dark cycle of movies that began for Robin Williams with One Hour Photo and Insomnia. I look forward with queasy dread to what he'll do in Mrs. Doubtfire 2." — Slate
Posted Apr 28, 2006
33% The Sentinel (2006) " There are thousands of us in over-air-conditioned screening rooms all over the country, throwing our bodies between you and bad movies. When I see a bullet coming, I'll take the hit so you don't have to. Don't thank me, ma'am. It's my job." — Slate
Posted Apr 21, 2006
86% Inside Man (2006) " Inside Man is adult, contemporary, and completely relaxed." — Slate
