2.5/4 5% Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie (Yûgiô: Gekijô-ban) (2004) " Like Harry Potter, Shrek and Spider-Man, it will become part of the currency of grade and middle school conversation." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 17, 2006
1/4 16% xXx: State of the Union (2005) " Well, they sure blowed 'em up good in XXX: State of the Union. And they pimped many rides. XXX is a car nut's fantasy." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 17, 2006
2/4 25% Walking Tall (2004) " Like the hicksploitation genre from which it was spawned, Walking Tall is long on violence and short on police procedure." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 17, 2006
4/4 92% Vera Drake (2004) " In a hopelessly polarized debate, Leigh allows us to see real people involved in real situations. The film will keep people on either side of the abortion debates talking." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 10, 2006
1.5/4 65% Unleashed (Danny the Dog) (2005) " Freeman is better than his role, and Hoskins is a powerful presence. Li almost pulls off a psychologically complex role. But in the end, Unleashed is a muddled film." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 10, 2006
3.5/4 45% The Thing About My Folks (2005) " Reiser has given us a film that makes us laugh while contemplating the ways we understand and misunderstand those we love." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 2, 2006
2/4 79% Red Eye (2005) " Fans of the thriller genre will probably be scared and entertained, but seeing Red Eye is more like watching a good television show than a good movie." — Christianity Today
Posted Nov 1, 2006
2.5/4 10% House of D (2004) " House of D is a delightful coming of age drama/comedy that deals with weighty matters of the soul." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 28, 2006
3.5/4 96% Osama (2004) " Great films like Osama, thoughtfully considered, give us the ability to withhold blanket judgments and come that much closer to the truth." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 27, 2006
3/4 72% Open Water (2004) " Kentis and Lau have labored to make an almost documentary-style film. It's meant to make us feel like we are really there, and to a large extent it succeeds." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 27, 2006
3/4 52% The Notebook (2004) " A thoughtful, emotionally rich film in which we see that great love, like deep faith, is forged on doubt, trials, and hardships. Only then does it deliver its deepest rewards." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 27, 2006
2.5/4 44% The Jacket (2005) " A solid attempt to wrestle with some big questions. The cast is exemplary and the premise and script are well reasoned and artful. But it doesn't quite come together." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 25, 2006
3/4 21% Into the Blue (2005) " An unpretentious film that delivers more than the trailers might suggest." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 25, 2006
2/4 4% Godsend (2003) " The script is long on the Big Issues, but comes up short in compelling dialogue. It needed a couple more drafts." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 22, 2006
2.5/4 15% Garfield - The Movie (2004) " People who love cats will see their own felines in Garfield. Parents who love neither Garfield nor cats will have a good time nonetheless." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 22, 2006
3/4 69% Curious George (2006) " A great kids' film, and a vehicle for a beloved character that will hopefully send parents scurrying to the bookstore for the genuine article. " — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 11, 2006
2/4 51% Code 46 (2004) " What keeps Code 46 from living up to its fascinating premise is the lack of empathy we feel for William and Maria. They are almost like benign video game characters." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 11, 2006
2.5/4 20% The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D (2005) " A fun summer film for grade school kids, it avoids the subtle meanness and double entendres that filmmakers sometimes insert into films geared to children." — Christianity Today
Posted Sep 1, 2006
3.5/4 93% Good Night, And Good Luck (2005) " Many will see it as a cautionary tale: Don't let anyone else do your thinking for you. The truth is the thing. Cherish it and defend it. " — Christianity Today
Posted Aug 25, 2006
