Posted Sep 27, 2009
68% Funny People (2009) " ... if my complaints are 'I'd like to spend more time with many of the characters' and 'there's too much good stuff,' there are worse problems for a filmmaker to have." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 31, 2009
68% Public Enemies (2009) " ... a solid, smart adult entry into the summer sweepstakes this year, and a nice moment for Mann, even if it doesn't particularly break new ground." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews

Posted Apr 27, 2009
92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) " [The] brand-new self-described "spook-a-blast" is a nasty little bit of cyanide fun, a new Sam Raimi horror film, and it is an indecent amount of fun." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 20, 2009
97% The Hurt Locker (2009) " I'm not sure this is a film that will be easy to sell to the general public, but anyone who is willing to test themselves will find that it's a dynamic and memorable experience." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 20, 2009
84% I Love You, Man (2009) " [I]f you're in the mood for some straight-faced absurdism this weekend, "I Love You, Man" delivers." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 20, 2009
64% Duplicity (2009) " "Duplicity" may not be an award-winner at year's end, but for adults looking to see something that treats them with genuine respect this weekend, there are few films in wide release that better fit the bill." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 20, 2009
51% Observe and Report (2009) " If you think full frontal male nudity, "Old Boy"-style asskickings, date rape, and elderly incontinence are hilarious, you are in for a treat." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 18, 2009
31% While She Was Out (2008) " [Kim] Basinger does truly exceptional work in this intimate thriller that marks a promising debut for [Susan] Montford as a writer/director." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews

Posted Jul 7, 2008
77% Cloverfield (2008) " ... there's a lot of visual imagination in the way certain moments are staged, and I think there are few films that better capture the panic and the chaos of a crisis in a big city." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jan 25, 2008

Posted Dec 17, 2007
44% Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007) " Do I think PIRATES 3 is a perfect film? Nope. Do I think it delivers on the promises that the first two films have been making? For the most part, absolutely." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted May 24, 2007
83% Grindhouse (2007) " These are filmmakers who have followed their muse, for better or for worse, and what they've come up with here rewards every bit of faith I've ever put in them as a viewer." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Apr 6, 2007
100% Sidekick (2005) " Sidekick isn't a comedy so much as it is a twist on the genre. It's a solid little film, and I'll be curious to see what these filmmakers do next." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 10, 2006
29% Silent Hill (2006) " It wants to get under your skin and unnerve you, and when that fails, it's willing to grab you, shake you, and even yank your skin clean off if that's what it takes to affect you." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Apr 21, 2006
73% V for Vendetta (2006) " We have here something that we rarely see in SF films these days... a movie about ideas over action, character over special effects, and emotion over action." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 7, 2006
84% This Film is Not Yet Rated (2006) " This film... remembers to entertain as it illuminates, and it keeps its anger focused in a way that's never preachy." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jan 21, 2006

Posted Dec 31, 2005
78% Munich (2005) " MUNICH takes a clear-eyed look at a terrible moment in cultural history and the ramifications of that moment, and it's brave enough to say that there are no simple answers, no absolutes, when you are dealing with violence and hatred." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 23, 2005
77% Match Point (2005) " ... one of the best adult films of the year, a sleek moral quagmire that will no doubt be compared to crap like FATAL ATTRACTION, but which outclasses it in all regards." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 19, 2005

Posted Dec 19, 2005
84% King Kong (2005) " If you can look past the places where it doesn't hang together, KONG is a tremendous entertainment, as passionate a movie as any little self-financed indie film you want to name this year." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 14, 2005
19% Domino (2005) " DOMINO is a baffling mess, a movie that means to thrill but which ends up as one of the most depressing, empty exercises of the year." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 14, 2005
28% Elizabethtown (2005) " ELIZABETHTOWN is joyous and sloppy and frustrating at times but ultimately very satisfying, all of it jumbled up together." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 14, 2005

Posted Sep 30, 2005

Posted Sep 29, 2005
87% A History of Violence (2005) " This is a monster movie, just as surely as anything he's ever done, and the monster in this film is our own capacity for violence as well as our innate attraction to it." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews

Posted Aug 25, 2005
85% The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) " ... THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN does it all, and it does it very, very well." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 18, 2005
79% Red Eye (2005) " This is the film that PANIC ROOM wanted to be, and it's not so obsessed with being slick and overstylized that it loses sight of the basics." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 5, 2005
35% The Chumscrubber (2005) " ... even if it's not quite perfect, it's reaching for greatness, and it wants to be profound, and in some ways, that's enough." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 5, 2005
38% The Brothers Grimm (2005) " ...the most nakedly commercial and impersonal film that Gilliam's ever made." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 30, 2005
75% Wedding Crashers (2005) " This is a romantic comedy for people who hate romantic comedies, and it will also fully satisfy people already in love with the genre." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 14, 2005
83% Rize (2005) " Krumping isn't a fad for the amazing young people we meet in RIZE; it's a lifeline. And for LaChapelle, it's a triumphant first documentary feature." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 3, 2005
94% March of the Penguins (2005) " What makes MARCH OF THE PENGUINS such a fascinating film to watch is the thought that someone was crazy enough to actually go and film it." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 3, 2005
74% War of the Worlds (2005) " It's a perfect fireworks show for the long July 4th weekend, but as with even the most spectacular fireworks, it was not built to last." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews

Posted Jun 25, 2005
60% The Terminal (2004) " There are story threads that play out enjoyably, and other threads end up going nowhere. Enjoy the film from scene to scene, since there are definite pleasures along the way." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 25, 2005
75% Secretary (2002) " Perhaps there is something bold about saying pain can bring healing as long as it's applied by the right hand, but that seems obvious and normal thanks to... Gyllenhaal." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 25, 2005
54% Payback (1999) " This is the seediest studio picture I've seen since TO LIVE OR DIE IN LA. Even the theater floor feels stickier while watching this thing unfold." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 25, 2005
25% Hard Rain (1997) " Overall, HARD RAIN is the kind of film that most people will see, enjoy, and forget five minutes later... entirely adequate." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 25, 2005
97% Good Will Hunting (1997) " For the first time in his career, Van Sant is invisible as a filmmaker, simply getting out of the way of the story and his performers. The film is richer for it." — Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
