B 50% Chéri (2009) "Lacks the precision and control of this same team's randy vicious Dangerous Liaisons but thanks to the lead actors, it stings and lingers " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 2, 2009
A 100% The Terminator (1984) ""TECH%u2022NOIR" indeed. He's a futuristic machine and this movie is pitch black with menace. " ‐ Film Experience

Posted Sep 10, 2008
88% Roman de Gare (Crossed Tracks) (2007) "It's too bad you can't shove a new theatrical release into your beach bag, as if it were a well-worn paperback. " ‐ Pajiba
Posted Sep 10, 2008
B 65% Stop-Loss (2008) "An honest vocalization of the inchoate discomfort so many Americans on either side of the political divide are feeling. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008
17% Sleepwalking (2008) "Theron sneaks out the door roughly 1/2 an hour into the picture. What is the movie to do without her energy? " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008

Posted May 15, 2008
A 90% The Piano (1993) "It's often incorrectly reduced to a feminist fable, but the scope of Jane Campion's achievement is broader. If anything The Piano is a masterwork of humanism. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008
D+ 24% The Life Before Her Eyes (2007) "Should my life flash before my eyes before my demise, I am certain that movie scenes will appear. I only ask that this movie not be included in the edit. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008
C+ 39% Speed Racer (2008) "Messy and undisciplined, if at least always itself. But isn't this a more suitable aesthetic for an imaginary movie version of Marvel's 'Dazzler' " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008
B- 94% Iron Man (2008) "a fun night at the movies but unfortunately disposable " ‐ Film Experience
Posted May 15, 2008

Posted Dec 7, 2007
91% Blade Runner (1982) "The macro eye closeup that opens this spectacular film (newly scrubbed and polished) is a perfect statement for the movie, human but abstract: unconnected to a face. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Oct 11, 2007
94% The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) "less cloying and superficial than other movies of its subgenre and directed with true showman's flair. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Oct 11, 2007
76% I'm Not There (2007) "the multiple actor gimmick is fascinating to grapple with (as is the movies comparably shape-shifting visual identity) but it leads to an uneven ride " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Oct 11, 2007

Posted Oct 11, 2007
89% Eastern Promises (2007) "If ...Violence was Cronenberg's gift to Viggo Mortensen, unlocking the greatness of the rising star, consider this the actor's return favor. He's mesmerizing. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Sep 21, 2007
D+ 43% The Brave One (2007) "Following her first vigilante act, the movie starts hemorhagging IQ points and the faux hand wringing escalates. This movie never stops lying to itself " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Sep 14, 2007
76% Stardust (2007) "Pfeiffer rocks. The rest is merely rocky. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Aug 10, 2007
57% Becoming Jane (2007) "Becoming Jane isn't purposefully cynical but if you stop to consider it, it rather undermines Austen's great talent. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Aug 6, 2007
91% The Women (1939) "a bitchy but endearing mix of comedy and melodrama. Norma Shearer holds the chaos together with improbable dignity. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 20, 2007
97% Rope (1948) "An elaborately perverse buffet served up at a pivotal moment in Hitchcock's career " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 20, 2007
92% The Little Mermaid (1989) "A coming of age fable for both Disney and the mermaid heroine " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 20, 2007

Posted Jul 20, 2007
91% Hairspray (2007) "Good morning Moviegoers. Each new Hairspray's an open door. Each new "Tracy" a fantasy Each new version a symphony " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 20, 2007
57% Transformers (2007) "When you get a good view you'll probably be thrilled. But the thrills vanish with the next quick cut. There should have been more that met the eye. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 4, 2007
96% Ratatouille (2007) "My compliments to the chef Brad Bird. This writer/director has one of the best young filmographies in the world. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jul 3, 2007
79% A Mighty Heart (2007) "The best thing about it is the very thing that's most potentially maddening to moviegoers. Movies and TV offer US a steady diet of reductive emotional sensationalism but this one, like its protagonist, keeps a cool head even in horrific situations. " ‐ Film Experience
Posted Jun 29, 2007
27% Evening (2007) "At first you can't believe that so much talent has been assembled. But by the end of this deathbed reverie you can't believe what they've done with that abundance. " ‐ Film Experience
