2.5/4 68% Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve (2013) " Money For Nothing lacks the rush of Rush, but you still might find your pulse racing and your blood boiling by the film's end." — Denver Post
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/4 32% Gangster Squad (2013) " It might sound like a stretch, imagining Penn playing that intense, indiosyncratic a villain. But the lauded, veteran actor pulls a left hook, then a right, and after a wild bodyshot at the tail end of the film, you see the true mania behind his eyes." — Denver Post
Posted Jan 11, 2013
1.5/4 70% Not Fade Away (2012) " This film could have been -- should have been, even -- something special. But it's not." — Denver Post
Posted Jan 4, 2013
2.5/4 51% This is 40 (2012) " Apparently Apatow's penchant for if-it's-not-broke filmmaking isn't changing anytime soon. And it's a shame, because while This is 40 has plenty of laughs, it lacks decency and heart." — Denver Post
Posted Dec 21, 2012
4/4 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) " This meaningful film keeps the laughs, giddy anxiousness and warm butterflies from the trailer and sustains it all through two full hours of a love story." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 21, 2012
3/4 49% Hit & Run (2012) " The rom-com/car chase back-and-forth doesn't always work, but a fun story and affable cast keep things moving fluidly." — Denver Post
Posted Aug 17, 2012
4/4 43% To Rome with Love (2012) " Allen's story moves along quite wonderfully, primarily because of his nuanced casting." — Denver Post
Posted Jul 6, 2012
2/4 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) " The disconnect between intention and final product is a head scratcher." — Denver Post
Posted Jun 22, 2012
2.5/4 43% American Reunion (2012) " Yes, American Reunion is a juvenile outing. They steal jet skis and defecate in beer coolers. They cheat on their girlfriends and lie to their best friends. But what did you expect?" — Denver Post
Posted Apr 6, 2012
2/4 80% It Might Get Loud (2009) " While that sounds like a fantasy for rock aficionados, the scenes lack dramatic tension or cinematic enlightenment. It just kind of happens, and then the all-star jam fades to black, leaving few remnants of the filmmakers' initial intentions." — Denver Post
Posted Sep 4, 2009
25% Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (2009) " In a struggling music economy, the big screen can be big money -- for the right acts. And the Jonas Brothers are exactly that." — Denver Post
Posted Feb 27, 2009
2.5/4 67% Cadillac Records (2008) " Etta's story will be better told in another film, surely." — Denver Post
Posted Dec 5, 2008
3.5/4 89% Metallica - Some Kind of Monster (2004) " It's great emotional fodder for old-school Metallica fans and smart, tugging drama for people unfamiliar with the band." — Denver Post
Posted Jul 30, 2004
2.5/4 62% Identity (2003) " A film that is thiiiis close to nailing the whole suspense/thriller/ serial-killer genre." — Denver Post
Posted Apr 25, 2003
3.5/4 60% Old School (2003) " This School is cool." — Denver Post
Posted Feb 21, 2003
2.5/4 45% Daredevil (2003) " A well-crafted introductory course." — Denver Post
Posted Feb 14, 2003
2/4 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) " Lackluster." — Denver Post
Posted Feb 7, 2003
3/4 43% The Recruit (2003) " The foreshadowing is a bit heavy-handed, but the writers and director largely manage the tension and mystery tactfully." — Denver Post
Posted Jan 31, 2003
1.5/4 8% Kangaroo Jack (2003) " Little more than an exercise in pockmarked dialogue, lame stereotype riding and even worse pacing." — Denver Post
Posted Jan 17, 2003
3/4 19% Just Married (2003) " Ditches the expected route and comes out surprisingly original and endearing." — Denver Post
