1/4 12% The Darkest Hour (2011) " "Darkest Hour'' doesn't have even as much character as those Discover commercials." — Boston Globe
Posted Dec 27, 2011
1/4 12% Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) " You know there is something wrong with a movie when even David Cross in a giant pelican suit isn't funny." — Boston Globe
Posted Dec 15, 2011
1/4 0% Echelon Conspiracy (2009) " Combines a righteous message about out-of-control government surveillance with the old computer-gone-haywire plot to make - well, not very much, actually." — Boston Globe
Posted Nov 24, 2011
2.5/4 64% Norman (2011) " Byrd and Jenkins earn the film its critical points, but the screenplay has too many moments that feel network-TV-bland." — Boston Globe
Posted Oct 25, 2011
1.5/4 24% Apollo 18 (2011) " For most horror fans it will be kind of a snooze." — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 5, 2011
2/4 60% Second Skin (2008) " Most of the movie's revelations will be old hat to anyone who's paid modest attention to pop culture for the last 10 or 15 years." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 13, 2009
2/4 81% Under Our Skin (2008) " Heartbreaking stories of patients suffering life-shattering illness make "Under Our Skin'' compelling. It would have been an even better movie if the filmmakers had been more diligent in following the money." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 6, 2009
2/4 —— A Man Among Giants " Tunstall is a raw character, a troubled unit. It's not quite clear what Webber and Lewis are." — Boston Globe
Posted Jul 9, 2009
2/4 48% La Fille de Monaco (The Girl from Monaco) (2009) " The Girl From Monaco doesn't seem to know whether it wants to be a sprightly sex comedy or an enigmatic little thriller. Unfortunately, it's neither very funny nor very thrilling." — Boston Globe
Posted Jul 3, 2009
2/4 14% Dragonball Evolution (2009) " The giddy, anything-goes spirit of Japanese manga comics and Hong Kong martial arts flicks animates Dragonball Evolution. Not enough to make it a good movie, mind you, but enough so you won't hate yourself if you sit through it with the kids." — Boston Globe
Posted Apr 13, 2009
1/4 29% Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans (2009) " Director Patrick Tatopoulos was responsible for the creature effects in the two earlier installments, but he's not great at staging fights or directing actors." — Boston Globe
Posted Jan 26, 2009
2.5/4 50% We are Wizards (2008) " The documentary sweetly focuses our attention on the way human creativity transforms everything around it. Often in the nuttiest of ways, true. But still, it's a good thing." — Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2009
2/4 50% Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North (2008) " It would be as funny as a Christopher Guest mockumentary if it weren't also so sad." — Boston Globe
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3/4 94% It Always Rains on Sunday (1947) " This is a mostly forgotten gem." — Boston Globe
