Posted Jul 27, 2007
.5/5 7% I Know Who Killed Me (2007) "What is billed as a suspenseful thriller is lacking any suspense, and generates cheap thrills only from scenes of torture, gore, and the occasional "jump" moment of pseudo-shock. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Jul 27, 2007
3.5/5 79% Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) "More suspense than the other films in the series ... and an improvement upon the book from which it was adapted. " ‐ Cinematical

Posted Jun 10, 2007
3/5 60% Gracie (2007) "More charming and enjoyable to watch than it deserves, primarily because the performances transcend the script flaws. " ‐ Cinematical

Posted May 12, 2007

2/5 68% Disturbia (2007) "Apart from a contemporary setting, nothing about Disturbia gives it an advantage over Rear Window. " ‐ Cinematical

Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 No Score Yet Crazy Again "Its focus is muddled - it's half a tour film, and half an exploration of a man driven to the brink of sanity, trying to fight the voices in his head. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 78% Summercamp! (2007) "At times it feels like a feature-length Flaming Lips video, which is not at all a bad thing, except I kept wondering if Wayne Coyne would pop out from behind a tree and start somersaulting or building sandcastles. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 No Score Yet Letters from the Other Side (2006) "While the film doesn't disguise its political leanings, it isn't blatantly manipulative or preachy. " ‐ Cinematical

3/5 No Score Yet The Cassidy Kids "The characters, rather than the plot, make this an enjoyable movie. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 68% Hard Candy (2006) "The film's strength is in the way it continually sustains suspense, particularly in the use of sound effects. Very little is shown, but much is heard. " ‐ Cinematical

Posted Apr 8, 2007
1.5/5 55% Glory Road (2006) "It isn't meant to be a movie that makes us think, or that makes us uneasy in any way. It's meant to make us feel good. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 74% Cars (2006) "It's never a good sign when the funniest, most entertaining part of a movie are the closing credits. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
4.25/5 90% Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story (2005) "If you go into this movie expecting a traditional narrative tale, you may get discouraged. You have to throw away your expectations and sit back and wait to see what happens ... if anything. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
4/5 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) "I don't think the movie will appeal to a wide audience, but I could see it becoming a perennial cult classic, right up there with Repo Man. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007

Posted Apr 8, 2007

Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.25/5 19% Domino (2005) "A well-paced action movie, if a little long, with an unusual feeling of surrealism behind the action. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 50% Nobelity (2006) "It is difficult to sustain an audience's interest with talking heads, and a few of the Nobel Laureates have trouble explaining concepts in terms that are easy to digest during a documentary. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 19% Step Up (2006) "Tatum and Dewan have none of the chemistry of Astaire and Rogers, but with help from a good supporting cast and talented choreography, the movie rises slightly above the usual cookie-cutter dance-movie fare. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 71% Invincible (2006) "As far as sports films go, Invincible doesn't offer anything original or notable ... except Mark Wahlberg's performance. " ‐ Cinematical

Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 55% Marie Antoinette (2006) "For two hours, we are treated to a display of prettiness. It's like one big elaborate meringue, delicate and intricately decorated, but without much past the surface. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
1.5/5 12% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) "A garden-variety horror movie that provides no innovation on the old "kids stranded in the woods with a scary monster" plot. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 69% The Woods (2006) "Not a groundbreaking or innovative horror film, but contains many elements that make horror movies appealing: screaming schoolgirls, spooky forces of nature, stylish camerawork, a good sense of humor throughout ... and the presence of Bruce Campbell. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007

Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 29% Tideland (2006) "Gilliam appears to be trying to throw us all off-guard, to make the theatergoing experience unpleasant. But in its own unlovable way, the movie is an unforgettable experience. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 61% Bug (2006) "Blends paranoia, trust and love into a riveting story, driven by intense characters. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 100% GamerZ: One Game to Rule Them All (2005) "An old-fashioned coming-of-age relationship comedy wrapped in the universe of role-playing gamers. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 83% Grindhouse (2007) "Tarantino's feature Death Proof is the better homage to grindhouse, while Rodriguez's feature Planet Terror is more a contemporary update of the old drive-in movie genre. " ‐ Cinematical
Posted Apr 6, 2007
3/5 72% American Zombie (2007) "Doesn't add much to the contemporary zombie genre or even the horror comedy genre but does provide light entertainment, especially if you like jokes about filmmaking. " ‐ Cinematical
