3/5 67% Conviction (2010) " Despite the strong performances, the happy ending, and the belief that justice can be found, the film still lacks the one thing that would make it better: conviction." — Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

1/5 18% Valentine's Day (2010) " There's little need for another gag-inducing love-fest unless it's good. And Marshall's Valentine's Day is not." — Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Posted Feb 11, 2010
2/5 32% The Lovely Bones (2009) " It's too bad no one told Jackson to ''keep it simple, stupid,'' because when you strip away all the special effects, the bare bones of the film are indeed quite lovely." — Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

Posted Nov 26, 2009

Posted Sep 17, 2009
3/5 63% Extract (2009) " While it lacks the charm and indelible characters of Office Space, Extract is still better than your average day of work. Though that's probably not a high bar for most." — Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Posted Sep 3, 2009
2/5 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) " When the action finally starts, you're not going to be jumping because you're startled. You're going to be jumping because you were just woken up." — Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Posted Aug 20, 2009

Posted Jul 2, 2009
