Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/5 45% The Box (2009) " Dull, poorly edited and predictable, The Box will come and go so quickly in theatres, you'll wonder if it was ever released when you see it for rent on DVD." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 18, 2009
2/5 45% Hotel for Dogs (2009) " There are enough plot moments for the older ones not to be bored to tears. But, it is just not a great motion picture experience." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
3/5 68% Revolutionary Road (2008) " Another routine suburban drama." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
4.5/5 98% The Wrestler (2008) " It is brutal to the point of being cringe inducing. But, Mickey Rourke gives the performance to beat on Oscar night." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
3/5 33% Not Easily Broken (2009) " no way, shape or form is great cinema, but it a decent Christian entertainment." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
3.5/5 57% Defiance (2009) " a compelling, inspirational look at a little-known story of Jewish resistance in Nazi Europe, though it doesn't come without controversy." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
2.5/5 71% Last Chance Harvey (2009) " Though Hoffman and Thompson inhabit Harvey and Kate nicely, the Golden Globe nominations seem a bit much. What material they're given to work with simply isn't a stretch for either of them." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Jan 15, 2009
3.5/5 14% The Spirit (2008) " The 108 minute film is filled with sizzlin' curves, sexy silhouettes & staggering action." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 22, 2008
3.5/5 79% Gran Torino (2009) " 70's machismo in a 00's package. Clint Eastwood does a film dedicated to his fans." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 18, 2008
3.5/5 80% Un Secret (A Secret) (2008) " you'll exit the theatre with at least one unanswered question and plenty to discuss." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 18, 2008
3/5 62% Valkyrie (2008) " effective and ultimately hollow" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 18, 2008
3.5/5 78% Doubt (2008) " both powerful and flawed, and is worth a look to draw your own conclusions." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 16, 2008
3.5/5 56% The Tale of Despereaux (2008) " Have a heart bigger than a mouse, and take the kids to see the entertaining The Tale of Despereaux." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Dec 16, 2008
4/5 94% Milk (2008) " a very dynamic biopic" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 27, 2008
1.5/5 55% Australia (2008) " If you think you just have to see this film on the big screen, I would suggest seeing a matinee or waiting until the dollar movie circuit. Definitely not worth the full price of admission." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 24, 2008
4/5 25% Four Christmases (2008) " Is this the funniest comedy of the year? Probably not. But it will probably be right up there for holiday comedies if you enjoy films such as Bad Santa or National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 24, 2008
3/5 88% Bolt (2008) " It may be forgotten quicker than Travolta's last comeback or Cyrus' last album for that matter, but it's still harmless, enjoyable fun for the kids on any given afternoon matinee." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 20, 2008
4/5 98% Let the Right One In (2008) " There are more occasions where the film does drag and it is need of a tighter edit, but for the most part it works as a genre flick and as a treatise on young star crossed love." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 20, 2008
2/5 49% Twilight (2008) " Make no mistake: This is not a good movie, and your time and money would be better spent elsewhere. (Your daughters', too.)" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 20, 2008
3/5 92% Frost/Nixon (2008) " If Howard had played with the form a little more%u2014or simply given us access to the actual people and interviews%u2014it may have been more powerful. But as it is, it is a good movie overshadowed by the source material." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 20, 2008
2.5/5 44% Soul Men (2008) " Bittersweet but predictable and profane comedy, with an engaging chemistry from its two stars." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 6, 2008
4.5/5 63% The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) (2008) " The juxtaposition of innocence and abject horror makes this particular story so terrifying." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 5, 2008
4/5 64% Quantum of Solace (2008) " unusually strong despite its flaws, and ends on a surprisingly powerful flourish. It's a hell of a thing to watch." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 5, 2008
3/5 64% Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) " For the next movie, they should select a less redundant title and move it, move it, to another continent altogether." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 5, 2008
4/5 77% Role Models (2008) " You might not trust them with your children, but you can absolutely trust it with your Friday night." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Nov 5, 2008
3/5 46% Sex Drive (2008) " ery funny moments, hilarious sight gags and a good-natured message for teenagers about taking risks" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 19, 2008
5/5 55% Martyrs (2008) " During the screening of it, I literally had my hand over my mouth, whispering "Oh God, No" to myself several times and almost, contemplated getting up to leave the theatre to leave as I just couldn't take anymore." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 14, 2008
4/5 54% Body of Lies (2008) " one of the year's best, a technically proficient but powerful and entertaining spy drama" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 12, 2008
3/5 36% How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008) " a nicely sarcastic take on celebrity culture, though its own methods undermine its rebellious spirit." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 12, 2008
2.5/5 61% The Express (2008) " a serviceable, entertaining and unremarkable portrait of a remarkable athlete." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 12, 2008
4/5 69% Religulous (2008) " provocative effort can be summed up in one word, Hallelujah!" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 12, 2008
4/5 54% Choke (2008) " The cast is great, the story is very adult, very wrong, and very engaging. Choke is an excellent open to the fall movie going season, and utterly recommendable." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 2, 2008
2/5 26% Eagle Eye (2008) " turns a faintly interesting thriller/SF premise into untethered fantasy and a whole lotta CGI explosions, I can rally no defense. Life is short, my friends." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 2, 2008
2.5/5 76% Appaloosa (2008) " There is some great work here, but the sum total is a wash." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 2, 2008
3/5 30% Nights in Rodanthe (2008) " This is not a tearjerker but a tear ripper." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 2, 2008
2/5 41% Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008) " much like a playful puppy. Energetic, fun but messy and all over the place." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Oct 2, 2008
3/5 36% Igor (2008) " Not a great film, either in terms of groundbreaking animation or story telling. But, it is a fun little bit of fluff that is better than most September releases." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 19, 2008
3/5 85% Ghost Town (2008) " A layer of nuance and bitter wit saves this from being just another romantic comedy with a twist." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 19, 2008
4.5/5 81% I Served the King of England (2008) " Sometimes a film comes along that touches both a nerve and a funny bone at the same time." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 14, 2008
4/5 —— Exit Speed (2008) " lives in the greatest tradition of drive-in entertainment" — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 14, 2008
4/5 63% Sixty Six (2006) " The writers deftly weave a touching coming-of-age story with that of a bittersweet relationship between father and son." — Hero Realm
Posted Sep 14, 2008
1.5/5 19% Righteous Kill (2008) " I don't hate the film. I hate its aggressive banality." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 14, 2008
3.5/5 78% Burn After Reading (2008) " a fun, enjoyable way to get the fall movie season going." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 14, 2008
4/5 75% Praying With Lior (2008) " The director has managed to solicit the most endearing interviews with that of Lior's classmates." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Sep 14, 2008
2/5 41% The House Bunny (2008) " Could be a box-office hit based on the sheer bubbly sexiness of its leggy star, Faris, who should graduate to better comedic material. She's all you'll remember from this trite but enjoyable late summer movie entry." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 21, 2008
3/5 62% Hamlet 2 (2008) " Chances are, if the title doesn't make you laugh or at least smirk, none of the rest of it is going to either." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 21, 2008
3/5 41% The Rocker (2008) " Although there are many laugh-out-loud moments, the film has trouble deciding exactly what it wants to be %u2013 a physical, slap-stick comedy or a basic one-liner machine." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 20, 2008
3.5/5 83% Tropic Thunder (2008) " As the director, Ben Stiller does an admirable job. He gets great performances out of the cast. But the script starts to sag somewhere in the middle and gratuitous violence just doesn't make up for the lack of smart dialogue." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 13, 2008
2.5/5 18% Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) " Merely OK as a movie, The Clone Wars points to larger problems in the Star Wars prequel universe." — Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 12, 2008
3/5 19% Fly Me to the Moon (2008) " it isn't anything new, but it's colorful, clean and wholesome entertainment for the family." — Pop Syndicate
