1.5/4 32% The Black Dahlia (2006) " Such a baroque, incoherent mess it fails to please as a period piece or a murder mystery." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 14, 2006
2.5/4 90% Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006) " It shows the whole of Young's music as a well-worn mixture of brawn and grace. But it reveals the new Young album, Prairie Wind, as a sometimes musty echo of his 1972 acoustic-rock classic, Harvest." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 6, 2006
3/4 77% It's All Gone Pete Tong (2004) " It's All Gone Pete Tong practically yanks the viewer along the wild arc of Frankie's life. But there's no other way to travel through the rock-star world he inhabits." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 12, 2005
2/4 42% Beyond the Sea (2004) " Spacey's singing turns out to be the most plausible and appealing element of Beyond the Sea. It's just about everything else that needed rethinking." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 29, 2004
3/4 90% Tom Dowd and the Language of Music (2004) " As affectionate and energetic as its subject." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 12, 2004
2.5/4 78% Tupac - Resurrection (2003) " It does have the limitations of the form: selective memory and admiring treatment that errs on the side of its subject. But Resurrection also humanizes Shakur even as it enshrines him and soft-pedals some difficult questions." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 14, 2003
75% Intolerable Cruelty (2003) " It winds up playing like a separation -- loud, overheated and messy." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 10, 2003
2.5/4 92% School of Rock (2003) " Obvious but sometimes funny." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 3, 2003
2/4 24% Masked And Anonymous (2003) " What Masked and Anonymous does best is bring to mind the words of another solitary dude, Clint Eastwood: 'A man's gotta know his limitations.'" — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 28, 2003
2/4 66% Brown Sugar (2002) " This plodding romantic comedy about two friends falling in love has little of the punchy wit and storytelling dexterity that makes hip-hop a worthy source of inspiration." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 11, 2002
3/4 82% Barbershop (2002) " A genuinely funny ensemble comedy that also asks its audience -- in a heartwarming, nonjudgmental kind of way -- to consider what we value in our daily lives." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 13, 2002
3.5/4 86% 24 Hour Party People (2002) " Think of this dizzying, sometimes surreal presentation as fabricated truth, a memoir that freely admits to coloring facts while keeping the broad essentials straight and the real names intact to expose the guilty." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 5, 2002
2/4 4% Serving Sara (2002) " Serving Sara is fitfully funny but so threadbare in most respects that killing time is the only reason to see it." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 23, 2002
2/4 54% Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) " What started out as charming budget farce has become comedy by corporate affiliation." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 25, 2002
48% Eight Legged Freaks (2002) " Try as it might, it never equals the squirm value of Arachnophobia or the self-mocking wit of Tremors and Lake Placid." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 17, 2002
2/4 14% Crossroads (2002) " Borrows from other movies like it in the most ordinary and obvious fashion." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 15, 2002
27% How High (2001) " Even when aiming low, How High is too stupid or stoned to hit many marks." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 20, 2001
70% Grateful Dawg (2000) " Starts to dissolve into a pleasant but overlong home movie." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 7, 2001
19% On the Line (2001) " This one is pretty slight." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 26, 2001
52% Rock Star (2001) " Writer and director are content to plod the old walk of fame without much irony or questioning." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
