2/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) " Rather than fine-tune the narrative engine, the filmmakers hit the gas with not much more in the tank than sumptuously photographed car porn, robbing what could have been a high-toned B-movie of any punch." — Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

4/5 72% Machete (2010) " A loud, giddy, carnal blast from one of cinema's most relentless schlock auteurs." — Dallas Morning News

4/5 96% Restrepo (2010) " By keeping the focus solely upon the outpost and the soldiers who lived and fought there, the co-directors effectively seal the film off from any external influence." — Dallas Morning News

4/5 62% When You're Strange (2010) " Seeing Morrison blithely hang a lei over the neck of an obviously giddy young woman or watching as Manzarek patiently fields questions helps humanize a group of men all too often shrouded in the mists of legend." — Dallas Morning News

3/5 69% The Runaways (2010) " The band's few hits, like "Cherry Bomb" and "Queens of Noise," are all over the soundtrack, but the music, much like the people who made it, feels like an afterthought." — Dallas Morning News

2/4 50% Fast Food Nation (2006) " There are plenty of blasé attitudes about the companies who provide our burgers and fries, and with Fast Food Nation, there's one more diffident voice to join the chorus." — Slant Magazine

1/4 54% Flicka (2006) " A beautifully photographed slice of pony porn for the preteen set." — Slant Magazine
Posted Oct 22, 2006
1/4 5% Broken Bridges (2006) " Broken Bridges is wrapped tight in the cloak of good intentions, soft-pedaling tired tripe about redemption, reconciliation, and finding solace in the bottle." — Slant Magazine

1/4 50% The Dogwalker (2002) " Broken Bridges is wrapped tight in the cloak of good intentions, soft-pedaling tired tripe about redemption, reconciliation, and finding solace in the bottle." — Slant Magazine
