8/10 41% American Dreamz (2006) "The Weitz brothers are a 2-headed John Hughes for post-2000 audiences...not always critically aclaimed, but almost always loved by the public. Once again, they succeed. " ‐ Supercala.com

Posted Apr 7, 2006
5.5/10 80% Brick (2006) "Assumes that you know film noir and then that you won't mind high-schoolers trampling one of your favorite genres. An admirable attempt that falls short in the end. " ‐ Supercala.com

10/10 90% Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006) "...if you're considering waiting to see it on DVD, do yourself a favor and go see it in the theater. It'll be worth every penny. " ‐ Supercala.com
