4/5 90% Wild (2014) "What the book communicates better than the movie is just how grueling the Pacific Coast Trail can be...But that's only a quibble. Like the book, the movie inspires wanderlust, whether the quest is for your body or your psyche. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

3/5 86% The Bridge (FX): Season 2 (TV, 2014) "Season 1 got better as it went along; Season 2, which starts out stronger, looks like it will be a more-than-worthy continuation of a series that still needs work, but is definitely worth watching. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

100% Breaking Bad: Season 3 (TV, 2010) "With its sense of place, its spare dialogue and its oddball peripheral characters, Breaking Bad is the closest that TV comes to the best Coen brothers movies. That's pretty high praise. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

85% True Detective : Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Its dreariness makes it a bit of a slog, and a risk - viewers don't seem to be taking to these downbeat dramas as much as they used to. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

56% Killing Kennedy (2014) "The least-well-known of the movie's four principal actors, he's [Will Rothhaar] the least weighed down by his own familiarity, and he gives an empathetic but intense portrayal of the increasingly obsessive Oswald. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
Posted Nov 12, 2013
96% Argo (2012) "With Affleck's continued growth as a director, it makes you want to see what he will deliver next. " ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

Posted Jan 1, 2000
20% Duets (2000) "Looks a little like an early '70s TV-movie -- a lost, well-meaning artifact about 'looking for America' that you stumbled across during a late-night channel-surf." ‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
