4/5 94% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) " Incredible fights and chases, unbearable tension and breakneck pacing - just another day at the office for Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 17, 2007
3/5 74% Cars (2006) " Often veers over the central line between watchable and disappointing. " — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
4/5 100% Atomised (Elementarteilchen) (Elementary Particles) (2006) " Grim, funny, moving and thought-provoking, Roehler's film will find some people who will rank it as one of their films of the year and others who will say that he has ruined Houellebecq's book." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
2/5 47% Miami Vice (2006) " While Miami Vice is heavy on the style and visuals of Mann's other films, almost everything else which makes his work so watchable is absent." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
2/5 29% Wilderness (2006) " It's nasty and bloody with enough mayhem to make most horror fans overlook some even more horrific dialogue." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
3/5 74% Monster House (2006) " Here's a conundrum: an animated movie that is pitched at kids but is far more suitable for teenagers and adults." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006

Posted Aug 31, 2006
3/5 84% Akeelah and the Bee (2006) " While there's a temptation to dismiss Akeelah and the Bee as Good Will Spelling, there aren't enough (good) heartwarming films like this for either younger or older audiences." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
3/5 —— Severance " Gets the mix of gore and grins just right." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006
3/5 61% Crank (2006) " Very noisy, severe on the eyes and ludicrous, but a decent example of mindless entertainment." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Aug 31, 2006

Posted May 12, 2006
1/5 12% An American Haunting (2006) " The star of Don't Look Now and the star of Carrie appearing in a film as weak as this - now that's scary." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 12, 2006

Posted May 12, 2006
2/5 9% When a Stranger Calls (2006) " While teen chillers tend to be exercises in extreme dullness, at least director Simon West tries to wring some suspense out of the scenes here." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 12, 2006
2/5 50% Prime (2005) " You'd get/give a second date after this one. Probably. " — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 12, 2006
4/5 100% C.R.A.Z.Y. (Crazy) (2005) " Even though the ending feels a little rushed, and some of the brothers are more sketches than characters, this is a family it's impossible not to like." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 5, 2006
3/5 71% Lemming (2006) " Even if this film promises more than it ultimately delivers, for arguably the most excruciating dining scene in cinema history, it's worth seeing." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 5, 2006
3/5 23% Freedomland (2006) " Promises much but doesn't connect in the same way as another recent film with racial themes, Crash." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted May 5, 2006

Posted May 5, 2006
2/5 51% Manderlay (2006) " A film with plenty of interesting things to say but an exhausting way of saying them." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Mar 15, 2006
3/5 62% Proof (2005) " Proof is something of a puzzle, an all-star drama that has the feel of a Sunday afternoon film. Think curiosity, not must see." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Mar 15, 2006
3/5 86% L'Enfant (The Child) (2006) " For all its bleakness, the latest film from the Dardenne brothers offers hope and you'll take away from it how much you have to be thankful for." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Mar 15, 2006
4/5 82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) " Expertly told and beautifully shot, Tsotsi will find its place on plenty of year end lists. It deserves every plaudit that comes its way, and your attention." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Mar 15, 2006

Posted Jul 21, 2005
2/5 80% Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D (2005) " As blockbusters go, Revenge of the Sith has some good throwaway entertainment, but there have been better blockbusters with better throwaway entertainment." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Jul 21, 2005
3/5 25% House of Wax (2005) " The whole thing is vacuously enjoyable, downright nasty in places and, despite the fact that the ending is rushed, has a pretty spectacular finish." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Jul 21, 2005
2/5 83% The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse (2005) " With an embarrassment of comedy riches, Gatiss & Co will still leave some fans feeling disappointed." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Jul 21, 2005

Posted Jul 15, 2005
3/5 85% Batman Begins (2005) " Batman Begins isn't a case of DC setting a new level for comics onscreen, but rather a memorable example of how to keep up with the competition." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Jul 15, 2005
4/5 90% DiG! (2004) " Consistently funny and brutally honest, Dig! is a great addition to the rockumentary genre." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

Posted Jul 15, 2005
2/5 75% Wedding Crashers (2005) " A comedy which, like many big days, ends up with you wanting to see more of some people, goes on too long and ultimately ends up as a bit of an anticlimax." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Jul 15, 2005
3/5 20% The Ring Two (2005) " Shouldn't wind up the devotees too much and will keep fans of the first American movie quiet." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Apr 19, 2005
3/5 68% The Assassination of Richard Nixon (2004) " By the close you're convinced that there should have been more to the film than what ended up onscreen." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Apr 19, 2005
2/5 43% I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2004) " While the performances are excellent and the Get Carter-in-reverse plot is intriguing, this is a film where atmospherics triumph over the script." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Apr 19, 2005
2/5 23% The Amityville Horror (2005) " Unlike many of its multiplex peers, it does offer up a few decent scares, even if diehards will have seen them all before." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Apr 19, 2005
2/5 56% The Interpreter (2005) " As far removed from the glory days of 1970s political thrillers as many diplomats are from the suffering which they're presented with. Lost in translation indeed." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Apr 19, 2005
1/5 76% Seom (The Isle) (2000) " It's the safest of bets that this is one Asian film that won't get a Hollywood remake." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Oct 8, 2004
1/5 72% Open Water (2004) " Not likely to help scuba diving become the world's most popular pastime, but only scary if you're already frightened of your own shadow in a cinema." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Oct 8, 2004

Posted Oct 8, 2004
2/5 21% Resident Evil - Apocalypse (2004) " The longer the story goes on, the more it feels like a live action video game and not a real movie." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Oct 8, 2004
2/5 39% Man on Fire (2004) " Serves up revenge, loud bangs, grisly deaths and heavy symbolism in Mexico with some relish - and extra cheese." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
Posted Oct 8, 2004

Posted Sep 28, 2004
1/5 29% The Punisher (2004) " Revenge, they say, is a dish best served cold. Leftovers like this don't count." — RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
