4/5 44% Hostel: Part II (2007) MovieWeb
Posted Apr 26, 2011
5/5 71% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) MovieWeb
Posted Apr 26, 2011
6/10 86% Control (2007) " Greenhalgh's script plots a confusing route through proceedings, using clunky dialogue and glaring foreshadowing." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 27, 2007
7/10 96% Ratatouille (2007) " While Ratatouille may lack the pioneering invention and sardonic wit of some of Pixar's previous films, there is plenty to enjoy for the kid in everyone." — Tiscali
Posted Jul 14, 2007
6/10 86% The Namesake (2006) " There are some nice performances, most notably from Tabu as the dignified Ashmira." — Tiscali
Posted Mar 24, 2007
9/10 89% Zodiac (2007) " Chilling, smart and intense, with the occasional glimmer of light allowed to penetrate the darkness, Zodiac is utterly compelling." — Tiscali
Posted Mar 3, 2007
7/10 74% The Illusionist (2006) " Norton is pitch perfect as the aloof and complex Eisenheim, who maintains an inscrutability every bit as enthralling as his illusions." — Tiscali
Posted Feb 24, 2007
4/10 9% Norbit (2007) " The trouble with fat jokes is they wear thin very quickly." — Tiscali
Posted Feb 24, 2007
8/10 54% The Good Shepherd (2006) " The Good Shepherd is meticulous, intricate and unhurried, but with so much to absorb and admire, it's good not to rush." — Tiscali
Posted Dec 30, 2006
5/10 78% Dreamgirls (2006) " Dreamgirls, like most musicals, isn't so much about the story as it is about the music, which in this case is primarily the problem." — Tiscali
Posted Dec 30, 2006
6/10 65% Apocalypto (2006) " The impressive sets and sheer scale of the city scenes conjure thoughts of Cecil B. DeMille's great epics." — Tiscali
Posted Dec 30, 2006
7/10 62% Blood Diamond (2006) " DiCaprio has matured into an actor of real substance, with the chops to pull off challenging and weighty roles. The youthful fragility has gone, replaced with a forceful presence." — Tiscali
Posted Dec 30, 2006
6/10 55% Déjà Vu (2006) " If I experienced déjà vu and saw the film again, there's a possibility I might even understand the physics involved, but as diverting as Déjà Vu is, I'm not sure it's worth it." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 29, 2006
7/10 51% The Fountain (2006) " The Fountain doesn't offer any new theories about the existence of eternal life, but it offers a fascinating look at some age old ones." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 25, 2006
5/10 75% Happy Feet (2006) " Disappointing." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 25, 2006
8/10 72% Stranger Than Fiction (2006) " Further proof, were it needed, that where there's a Will, there's a way." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 11, 2006
7/10 72% Flushed Away (2006) " As if to confirm how amusingly bizarre it all is, the story even includes England reaching the World Cup final." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 11, 2006
6/10 73% Flags of Our Fathers (2006) " There is much to admire, but inevitably with Eastwood, he finds it hard to resist lapsing into sentimentality." — Tiscali
Posted Nov 4, 2006
7/10 76% The Prestige (2006) " Christopher Nolan is by no means a one trick pony." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 28, 2006
3/10 10% The Grudge 2 (2006) " Spinning out a flimsy idea into a movie is one thing, but dragging it out to a sequel is simply mercenary." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 21, 2006
5/10 7% Basic Instinct 2 (2006) " For those who were happy enough to sit through a mediocre thriller buoyed by the promise of a fleeting second of titillation, this sequel will no doubt satisfy. For those looking for something more substantial, your naiveté is endearing." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
6/10 76% The Devil Wears Prada (2006) " The Devil Wears Prada is like many of the models that grace the haute couture catwalks, appealing enough on the outside, but not much going on inside." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
4/10 33% Poseidon (2006) " It's not a question of being so bad it's good. It's not. It's truly bad. But the sheer brazen enormity of its failings is impressive." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
8/10 92% The Departed (2006) " A seriously good film." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
7/10 68% Snakes on a Plane (2006) " Samuel Jackson holds everything together with a performance that effectively parodies himself." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
5/10 68% World Trade Center (2006) " An overly sentimental, sluggish bore." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
7/10 93% Children of Men (2006) " Its unrelenting desolation is uncomfortable to experience, but its force is undeniable and compelling even if at times a little heavy-handed." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
4/10 24% Failure to Launch (2006) " I'm not quite sure why it is that this genre allows the normal rules of plausibility to be stretched beyond credulity, but any film which includes one man giving CPR to a mocking bird and another being savaged by a chipmunk lays itself open to ridicule." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
7/10 72% Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) " A feature of Ferrell's films is the warped reality they inhabit. It's as if anything goes." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
3/10 24% Lady in the Water (2006) " That Lady In The Water solicits more laughs than chills, most of which are unintentional, is evidence that the clothes Shyamalan struts around in are rapidly becoming more transparent." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
8/10 86% Thank You For Smoking (2006) " A smart and pointed comedy." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
5/10 73% V for Vendetta (2006) " Behind V For Vendetta is an intriguing idea, but one that needed a defter touch and more panache to pull off." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
9/10 91% Little Miss Sunshine (2006) " A consistently unexpected and twisted treat." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
8/10 91% United 93 (2006) " United 93 does a remarkable job of putting you in the midst of the unveiling drama as it chronicles a day that started out as routine and quickly became one of the blackest in America's history." — Tiscali
Posted Oct 11, 2006
5/10 55% 16 Blocks (2006) " There's little original about this serviceable if formulaic drama." — Tiscali
