68% Pineapple Express (2008) " Critics Consensus: Pineapple Express is Tasty" — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Aug 6, 2008
7/10 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) " If A Scanner Darkly doesn't match Waking Life's wonderfully fluid meditation on the nature of existence, it's still a remarkable visual experience and an involving drama -- albeit one that takes a while to wrap your head around." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
7/10 73% V for Vendetta (2006) " In all, V for Vendetta is a provocative film, not least because it's sometimes unclear what reactions it should be provoking." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
7/10 88% Maxed Out (2006) " This is an informative film about an important issue." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
8/10 100% LOL (2006) " It has some sly laughs (and a few wrenching moments, including one distressed voicemail message) and a sharp ear for how people (awkwardly) communicate." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
3/10 22% The Oh in Ohio (2006) " Like the Cleveland Indians in the playoffs, The OH in Ohio is a missed opportunity." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
10/10 56% The King (2006) " There isn't a scene in The King that doesn't work, and it all adds up to something rare: a film that doesn't cheat, and that may turn off some but will leave others, ahem, all shook up." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
8/10 72% Friends With Money (2006) " This a rare film about social status in which the bourgeoisie is seen in three dimensions, with discreet charm." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
7/10 —— Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes " The film never feels simply like an accusatory diatribe; it's a sincere examination of the most important pop music of our time. Beyond Beats and Rhymes is rap food for thought." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
8/10 80% Son of Man (2006) " The movie is a mix of gritty realism and fable, and director Mark Dornford-May finds many ways to place the story in a contemporary setting." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
8/10 72% American Hardcore (2006) " About as definitive a chronicle of American punk as we're likely to get." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
8/10 76% Factotum (2006) " A wry examination of quiet desperation, the film boasts rich performances and a nice topographical map of skid row." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
7/10 20% Open Window (2006) " A solid drama about how a traumatic incident affects a once-joyous relationship." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 10, 2006
6/10 67% loudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies (2006) " Filmmakers Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin capture concert performances so powerful, so joyful, that most objections can be overlooked." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
8/10 86% Thank You For Smoking (2006) " A comedy for our troubled, intensely partisan times" — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
6/10 36% Art School Confidential (2006) " The film has its share of pleasures, particularly as a wry satire of how arbitrarily the art world selects its favorites for reasons that can have little to do with the art itself." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
8/10 71% The Science of Sleep (2006) " Equally fanciful and haunting." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
8/10 91% Little Miss Sunshine (2006) " The film builds to a stunningly funny climax, one that is a moment of familial growth without an ounce of schmaltz." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
4/10 25% The Darwin Awards (2006) " The visual representation of gruesome death makes this black comedy a bit hard to stomach." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
10/10 87% The Proposition (2005) " One of the wildest and bloodiest odysseys in recent cinema." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
4/10 46% Battle in Heaven (Batalla en el cielo) (2006) " Visually arresting but dramatically inert, Battle in Heaven is the very definition of a difficult film. The question is whether such difficulty is ultimately rewarding." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
9/10 91% Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) " The best comedians are remarkable for their ability to express things that most people wouldn't dare say. What separates Cohen is his ability to get these people to speak the words themselves, uncensored." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Oct 9, 2006
5/10 73% Infamous (2006) " Truman Capote is good company, and for much of Infamous' running time, that's enough to hold our attention." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 25, 2006
3/10 37% Death of a President (2006) " D.O.A.P. leaves an ugly aftertaste." — Rotten Tomatoes
Posted Sep 25, 2006
8/10 90% Rescue Dawn (2007) " ... another triumph for the great German director." — Rotten Tomatoes
