1.5/4 6% A Sound of Thunder (2005) " Bradbury's classic 1952 short story is brilliant and thought-provoking; the movie isn't. On the bright side, it's bad in a campy, "ooh, it's on cable at 2am" kind of way." — Reel.com
Posted Sep 2, 2005
1.5/4 8% Undiscovered (2005) " Anyone who has an actual interest in filmmaking or music would be best served by staying far, far away." — Reel.com

Posted Aug 19, 2005
2.5/4 79% Red Eye (2005) " It's not a bad movie; it just didn't scare me at all, though it did make me reconsider my preference for window seats." — Reel.com
Posted Aug 19, 2005
3/4 52% Four Brothers (2005) " Four Brothers revels in its own testosterone." — Reel.com
Posted Aug 11, 2005
2/4 35% Must Love Dogs (2005) " Such great performances... Such a dreadful movie." — Reel.com
Posted Jul 28, 2005
3/4 76% Cry-Baby (1990) " Waters is just as offbeat as any of his film characters- and he surrounds himself with creative people who wouldn't at all be out of place in a John Waters movie." — Reel.com
Posted Jul 23, 2005
3.5/4 40% The Island (2005) " Turn off your brain and just have fun." — Reel.com

Posted Jun 28, 2005
2.5/4 25% Bewitched (2005) " You may be more bothered and bewildered than bewitched by this spoof-remake of the classic TV series." — Reel.com
Posted Jun 24, 2005

Posted Jun 9, 2005
3/4 59% Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) " Pretty people. Big explosions. More plot holes than bullet holes. What more could you want from a summer blockbuster?" — Reel.com

Posted Apr 8, 2005
2.5/4 37% Beauty Shop (2005) " Fun, sassy, and the only mainstream Hollywood comedy you'll ever see that features Maya Angelou quoted throughout." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 30, 2005

Posted Dec 16, 2004
2.5/4 72% Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) " It often feels disjointed... As though we get ten minutes of a dark children's movie, then fifteen of a Jim Carrey solo. Repeat." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 16, 2004

Posted Nov 12, 2004
3.5/4 49% Alfie (2004) " Alfie is a total knockout of a movie: stylish, well-crafted and well-performed. It also manages simultaneously to be a cautionary tale for Casanovas everywhere." — Reel.com
Posted Nov 5, 2004
2/4 7% Surviving Christmas (2004) " Summoning sympathy for poor-little-obnoxious-rich-man Drew is nearly as difficult as swallowing Grandma's decade-old fruitcake." — Reel.com
Posted Oct 22, 2004

Posted Oct 6, 2004

Posted Oct 1, 2004
2.5/4 8% First Daughter (2004) " O'Connell doesn't seem quite sure whether First Daughter is a social satire or a sugary fairytale. Nor does he seem to have a specific audience in mind." — Reel.com
Posted Sep 24, 2004
2.5/4 31% The Forgotten (2004) " if mind-*&$!s are your kind of thing, The Forgotten is your kind of movie." — Reel.com
