Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
83% Bright Star (2009) " In presenting Keats as much in Brawne's eyes as she in his, we watch Fanny's growing interest in John, we wait with her for his letters, we share in her anguish when all seems lost -- Campion suggests that he was her "bright star" as well" — Cinematical

6/10 33% Breaking and Entering (2007) " Despite some admirably committed performances, the film is marred by a few plot contrivances that cast unbelievability into a story that strives to be about real relationships, real politics, and real economics." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 25, 2006
4/10 76% Black Book (Zwartboek) (2007) " It's Nazis, melodrama and intrigue galore as Paul Verhoeven adds his patented Verhoeven touch to this sordid tale of a Jewish girl in hiding during World War II." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 25, 2006
8/10 75% Catch a Fire (2006) " The film champions its "terrorist" and vilifies its family man-turned-desperate lawman, and argues that when the lines between good and bad are forever blurred, forgiveness is mankind's only salvation." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 19, 2006
9/10 100% Deliver Us From Evil (2006) " What further elevates Deliver Us From Evil beyond the poignancy and courage of O'Grady's victims and the sorrow of their devastated families is Berg's access to the pedophile himself." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 19, 2006
4/10 —— Kabul Express " Obliterates the poignancy it's attempting to establish by being a weird, mismatched hybrid of political drama, adventure thriller, and road comedy." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 19, 2006
7/10 33% Stormbreaker (Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker) (2006) " Filled with entertaining action sequences and a dazzling supporting cast, Operation Stormbreaker succeeds in serving up tasty fare for the older set, as well as kids." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 19, 2006
8/10 57% The Dog Problem (2007) " Scott Caan's second directorial effort is an intimate, comical gem of a film..." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 19, 2006
6/10 25% El Cantante (2007) " El Cantante is driven by the rhythmic, pulsating sounds of Lavoe's music, without which the film would be nothing." — Rotten Tomatoes
