Jeff Giles

Agrees with the Tomatometer 84% of the time.

I'm a freelance music and film critic, which means a lot of people mistake me for Newsweek's Jeff Giles (I even get his mail sometimes). I am not Newsweek's Jeff Giles. Also, I like long walks on the beach.

1.5/5 39% Feast of Love (2007) " Let Google point you to this movie's finer moments, and leave the rest. It's really that bad." —

4/5 100% Man on Wire (2008) " Petit showed us that a dream, no matter how risky or dangerous, is often its own reward. It's an important lesson, but one that's obviously easy to forget, and Man on Wire is a stunning reminder." —

3/5 —— Live From the Artists Den - Patty Griffin (2007) " A set as solidly entertaining as you'd expect from an artist of Griffin's caliber." —
Posted Dec 1, 2007
3/5 —— Opus & Bill - A Wish For Wings That Work (1999) " Talking animals, brightly colored animation, a heartwarming moral to the story...what else could you possibly want out of a holiday 'toon?" —
Posted Dec 1, 2007
2/5 —— Rock Relief: Live in Concert (2007) " If a disaster relief concert is held, and is itself a disaster, who raises money for the concert's victims?" —
Posted Oct 16, 2007
4/5 —— Van Morrison - Live at Montreux 1980 & 1974 (2006) " The chance to see a rock & roll legend in his prime, for this kind of money, is something you really have to look for reasons not to take." —

2.5/5 33% Flashdance (1983) " There's something real in here, and it could have made it to the screen, but the people involved were too shortsighted to see it through." —
Posted Oct 16, 2007
3/5 —— Greatest American Hero - Deluxe Collector's (2006) " Sets like these often make you question what the hell you were thinking when you tuned in the first time around, but in this case, nostalgia will likely outweigh buyer's remorse." —
Posted Oct 16, 2007
4/5 100% White Light/Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (2007) " To say that watching this footage is harrowing would be an understatement -- and to call watching it "painful" would be a serious insult to the survivors." —
Posted Oct 6, 2007
2/5 25% Tortilla Heaven (2007) " This corn Tortilla is an undercooked mess." —
Posted Mar 24, 2007
1/5 11% The Architect (2006) " It would bear mentioning that nothing winds up being resolved in the film, if it weren't for the fact that there's nothing to resolve." —
Posted Dec 30, 2006
0/5 7% Conversations With God (2006) " The cinematography has all the flair and depth of your average episode of "Yes, Dear"; the score is a giggle-inducing juggernaut of obviousness; Eric DelaBarre's script contains virtually no believable dialogue; and Stephen Simons' direction carries the s" —

4/5 96% Back to the Future (1985) " Although the Zemeckis and Gale script has its corny moments, it's also genius -- it combines action, romance, comedy, drama and science fiction with impressive dexterity, and has aged better than most of its contemporaries." —
