91% Crazy Heart (2009) " Looking as bleary as a sleep-deprived Kris Kristofferson, Bridges gives a soulful, yet dry and witty performance..." — Critics at Large
Posted Jun 3, 2011
2/5 66% Brick Lane (2008) " A blandly earnest coming-of-age story." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2008
4/5 95% Antz (1998) " A Engaging and awe-inspiring animation once again elevates Shrek's world to fantastic heights, and the laughs are just as freewheeling as we have come to expect." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2008
4.5/5 86% El Orfanato (The Orphanage) (2007) " The Orphanage is an effectively scary picture about guilt, retribution, and acceptance, and it shares some of the spectral potency of Alejandro Amenabar's The Others." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 3, 2008
58% Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland (2008) " Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show is a sweet and affecting tribute to the shrewd charms of the American road show." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 4, 2008
83% Atonement (2007) " Atonement is so good it redeems our faith in intelligent drama." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 7, 2007
63% Buenos Aires, 1977 (Cronica de una fuga) (2008) " Chronicle of an Escape pretty much lives up to its title and little else." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 30, 2007
44% redacted (2007) " Redacted is a provocative, multi-layered anti-war film whose power sneaks up on you." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 16, 2007
2/5 90% Michael Clayton (2007) " So bogged down in plot that it has little in the way of suspense." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 29, 2007
3/5 79% Sharkwater (2007) " Sharkwater is a rare advocacy film that arouses both awe and wonder." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 28, 2007
2.5/5 72% Lust, Caution (2007) " As it is, Lust, Caution is only part, movie." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 28, 2007
2/5 47% Rendition (2007) " Hood, who knows what kind of movies win awards, crafts his tale so that every little detail falls neatly into place." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2007
33% Rails & Ties (2007) " Rails & Ties is definitely a heart-tugger, but it earns its tears modestly." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2007
88% Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) " Although not in the same league as his Serpico or Dog Day Afternoon, it's still a dark little noir about a botched heist with some crackerjack moments." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2007
3/5 82% Into the Wild (2007) " Although Into the Wild carries with it a tragic undercurrent, Penn illuminates the graceful aspects of Christopher's ultimate search for self to overall illuminating effect." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 21, 2007
2/5 73% In the Valley of Elah (2007) " Although more seamless and less contrived than writer/director/producer Paul Haggis' Academy Award winning Crash, the picture offers little more than an earnest civics lesson." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2007
2/5 89% Eastern Promises (2007) " Offers mostly empty promises." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2007
2.5/5 53% Across the Universe (2007) " Across the Universe would make for a much stronger picture if Taymor had worked from a better dramatic script, one that fleshed out the characters and made them a distinguishing force out to make history, like the Beatles themselves." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2007
1/5 79% Summercamp! (2007) " Summercamp is so haphazard it might as well be someone's digitally enhanced home movie." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 30, 2007
3/5 86% Paris Je T'aime (2007) " If you've ever been to Paris, the picture's varied takes on the City of Lights is seeped in reverie. If you haven't, Paris je t'aime serves as a enticing invitation." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 4, 2007
2/5 67% Everything's Gone Green (2007) " In trying to mock the yuppie subculture by poking fun at people who become obsessed with grass grow-ops and pyramid schemes, Fox shoehorns Coupland's generalizations into a lame character comedy." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 13, 2007
3.5/5 84% Beyond the Gates (2005) " Director Michael Caton-Jones doesn't go for obvious pathos or simple outrage. He approaches the picture's theme with a documentary realism that, scene by scene, heightens the drama." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 18, 2007
1/5 43% The Brave One (2007) " Director Neil Jordan, usually a master at creating atmosphere, keeps us at a remote distance throughout." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 30, 2006
3/5 89% Venus (2006) " Watching the bittersweet exchanges between O'Toole and Vanessa Redgrave, as his former wife, call up memories of a generation of British actors whose graceful style is quickly becoming a distant memory." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2006
3.5/4 93% Gwoemul (The Host) (2007) " The Host evolves into that rare horror film that becomes inconsolably poignant." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 7, 2006
55% Seraphim Falls (2007) " Seraphim Falls is a sanctimoniously violent western about retribution and forgiveness with obvious Biblical overtones, references and names." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 7, 2006
4/5 91% The Italian (2007) " The picture captures with a piercing sympathy the ambiguous state of post-Glasnost Russia." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 6, 2006
4/5 95% Offside (2006) " Offside is rewarding because rather than telling us what to think about contemporary Iranian society, Panahi invites us to consider its many paradoxes and possibilities." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 29, 2006
2/5 70% Amazing Grace (2007) " A terrific subject becomes a tepid morality play." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 29, 2006
1/5 49% Candy (2006) " Candy is a terribly obvious road-to-ruin movie that's bound to produce cavities." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 17, 2006
2/5 33% A Little Trip to Heaven (2007) " The pacing makes you feel like you're trudging through the snow." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2006
4/5 88% Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing (2006) " While watching the Chicks balance career and family life, Kopple and Peck paint an intimate portrait of a group breaking free of being a brand." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 30, 2006
2/5 37% Death of a President (2006) " Rather than opening up his subject and illustrating how Bush's death might affect a broad range of opinion, the world's as well as the country's, Range narrows everything down because it plays more comfortably to the pieties of a partisan audience." — Boxoffice Magazine
