2.5/4 —— Las brujas de Zugarramurdi (Witching and Bitching) " Not high art by any means, but it is pretty entertaining if you like a good slice of crazy horror-movie fun once in awhile." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 31, 2014
3/4 82% Jigoku de naze warui (Why Don't You Play in Hell?) (2014) " It's a movie that feels perfectly at home in 2014, but wouldn't feel out of place in any other decade." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 31, 2014
3/4 —— The Kill Team " "The Kill Team" is emotionally heavy; as you watch, you feel conflicted about Winfield's role and about your own perception of right and wrong." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 31, 2014
2.5/4 47% We're The Millers (2013) " Though incredibly predictable from start to finish, "We're the Millers" did make me laugh." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 8, 2013
3/4 78% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) " "Part of Me" succeeds because it's not afraid to let its big star be vulnerable." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 4, 2012
3/4 59% Wanderlust (2012) " [It] produces tons of laughs in its compact 90 minutes and doesn't overstay its welcome. The bad jokes are bad, but the good ones are great." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Feb 23, 2012
3/4 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) " Hot Tub Time Machine is a surprisingly enjoyable way to waste 90 minutes if you're into dude humor and penis jokes." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 25, 2010
1.5/4 13% The Bounty Hunter (2010) " Aniston isn't the world's greatest actress, but the main reason The Bounty Hunter stinks is the script." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 18, 2010
2.5/4 16% When in Rome (2010) " All in all, Bell and Duhamel (gee, that rhymes!) are not tearing down any barriers, but it's clear that they're having fun and their chemistry is palpable. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing them team up again." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2010
12% The Spy Next Door (2010) " The Spy Next Door is so hokey that I couldn't help but wonder if I was watching a campy sendup. It opens with "Secret Agent Man," for god's sake!" — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 14, 2010
2.5/4 21% Leap Year (2010) " The cinematography is what makes Leap Year worth seeing. Turns out Ireland is kind of pretty!" — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 7, 2010
2/4 19% The Fourth Kind (2009) " The Fourth Kind is legitimately scary enough to keep you in your seat. (Just don't Google the flick before you see it.)" — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 5, 2009
3/4 81% Bandslam (2009) " Instead of the vapid drivel you'd expect from their Disneyfied crowd, Bandslam turns out to be a charming (and well-soundtracked: Hello, Wilco!) little parable for the tween set about first crushes, friendship and like, duh, the power of music." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 13, 2009
3.5/4 13% The Ugly Truth (2009) " Despite the fact that it swims in a veritable ocean of romantic comedy clich├ęs, The Ugly Truth should manage to captivate and charm men and women alike." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 24, 2009
2.5/4 44% The Proposal (2009) " And though Bullock and Reynolds have snappy chemistry to spare, their love affair stops just shy of being believable. There are too many awkward 'tender' moments and not enough vigor for a real romance." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 18, 2009
3.5/4 77% Valentino: The Last Emperor (2009) " As Valentino's team of seamstresses pore over a sequined white dress, entirely hand-sewn, and finally premiere it to the designer in its flawless, couture glory, it's all you can do not to gasp with pleasure." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 12, 2009
2.5/4 41% The Last House on the Left (2009) " Sure, the movie is predictable (a convenient storm causes power outages and therefore the dark house is creepily candlelit and who knows who's lurking behind the door), but it keeps its audience on edge." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 12, 2009
1.5/4 25% Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009) " Had Confessions been truer to its chick-lit novel inspiration, the movie could have been fizzily enjoyable instead of sickening." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Feb 12, 2009
1.5/4 31% The Uninvited (2009) " Cheap thrills and a gimmicky twist at the climax keep The Uninvited in the realm of the subpar horror movie." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
