Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/4 95% Wordplay (2006) "It's a movie about crosswords, as seen through [puzzlers'] eyes, and it makes us one of them as we learn how to do crosswords by their side. " ‐ Zertinet Movies

2/4 69% Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (2006) "Wouldn't $10 be more wisely spent on his greatest hits? " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Jul 19, 2006
3/4 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) "As a story about Bob/Fred, and his friends, Scanner is a compelling creation. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Jul 19, 2006
0.5/4 21% You, Me and Dupree (2006) "I wouldn't want to spend five minutes with these people in a cab. Not an hour together for dinner. And sure as hell not two hours together in a movie theater. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Jul 19, 2006
3/4 76% Superman Returns (2006) "The lasting accomplishment of Superman Returns is that it manages to free itself from the mountain of expectations weighing it down. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Jul 1, 2006
1.5/4 37% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) "Unlike the campy 2001 Vin Diesel vehicle that started it all, what's missing in this third incarnation is any sense of fun, overrun by the forced seriousness of a soap opera mistaking itself for serious drama. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jun 16, 2006
3.5/4 68% Hard Candy (2006) "Hard Candy is both as ambiguous, and as obvious, a movie as you're likely to find in mainstream American cinema. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted May 6, 2006
3.5/4 91% United 93 (2006) "It's one thing to say we'll never forget; United 93 asks us to sit down and try to remember. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted May 6, 2006
3.5/4 73% V for Vendetta (2006) "It's a sign of our times that fictional fluff like this has now taken the plunge into raging rhetoric -- a sign that entertainment may be becoming the new forum for a conversation that has no other place in today's partisan political landscape. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Mar 22, 2006
3.5/4 82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) "The film succeeds at creating an unforgettable character study of one soul at the brink. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Mar 22, 2006
1.5/4 24% Failure to Launch (2006) "Everyone here is sour and detestable on some level, and though the film generates some chuckles and some interest due to its sheer quirkiness, we stare on in a freak-show kind of way. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Mar 22, 2006
1.5/4 43% She's the Man (2006) "It's stupid, dull and toothless, and a classic example of why the next generation is increasingly staying away from the movie theaters. Is this all Hollywood thinks of them? " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Mar 22, 2006
3.5/4 92% Dave Chappelle's Block Party (2006) "No, it's not Shakespeare, it's not Citizen Kane, but when a movie is this funny, addictive, affectionate, energetic, uplifting and aware of the world and its people and their hearts, it is just as much a triumph. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Mar 15, 2006
1.5/4 39% Agent Cody Banks (2003) "A bland and condescending adaptation of an adult action film for a younger audience. " ‐ Zertinet Movies

Posted Mar 15, 2006

Posted Feb 15, 2006
1.5/4 69% Curious George (2006) "It's tragic when the stilted dialogue, silly physical humor and meaningless plot lines come crashing down over this peace and calm fit for a Sunday morning. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Feb 15, 2006
2.5/4 55% Glory Road (2006) " It's a safe and succinct tribute to a powerful true story, a breezy historical drama that aims for the gut more than the heart. And it succeeds in only that dimension, as an inescapably escapist one-course meal. But what history it has to work with. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Feb 1, 2006
3/4 61% Hostel (2006) "Eli Roth's sly, shrewd and disquieting Hostel excels at twisting a morbid story around to ask a rather essential, philosophical question: Is violence always a bad thing? " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Feb 1, 2006
4/4 76% Match Point (2005) "Match Point achieves an almost Shakespearean effect. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
Posted Feb 1, 2006
3/4 55% Last Holiday (2006) " "Last Holiday" is more than a story that lets us escape. It's a story we'd like to believe could actually happen. " ‐ Zertinet Movies

3.5/4 89% Caché (2005) Zertinet Movies
Posted Feb 1, 2006
3/4 72% Bubble (2006) "While Bubble lacks a third act, never quite reaching an ultimate destination in the film's 70 short minutes, what it does evoke with remarkable success is the claustrophobia of a world without a way out. " ‐ Zertinet Movies

3.5/4 72% Syriana (2005) "It has a lot on its mind, and is not afraid to speak. So much so, in fact, that it should serve as a good crash-course in international energy affairs for those unfamiliar with the subject. " ‐ Zertinet Movies
