Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1/4 17% Georgia Rule (2007) " Frankly, it's a wonder that stars Jane Fonda and Felicity Huffman didn't belly up to the bar alongside Lohan, once they read Mark Andrus' screenplay, an atonal, ersatz mix of garden-variety family dysfunction and rank 'chick flick' clichés." — Reel.com
Posted May 11, 2007
1.5/4 29% Lucky You (2007) " Normally appealing actors Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore generate zero sparks as the unlikely couple, whose low-wattage romance apparently bores Hanson as much as it does the viewer, for he devotes far more screen time to poker than their relationship." — Reel.com
Posted May 4, 2007
2/4 48% Wind Chill (2007) " Wind Chill suffers from an underdeveloped screenplay, which feels like a first draft, erroneously deemed ready for production." — Reel.com
Posted May 4, 2007
1/4 20% The Invisible (2007) " [Goyer's] reliance on pointless montage sequences to push the dawdling narrative forward reduce an eerily intriguing idea for a character-driven supernatural thriller to just another mopey wallow in teen angst." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 30, 2007
0/4 2% Kickin' It Old Skool (2007) " This cruddy-looking, Rip Van Winkle-esque slough through 1980s-era pop culture detritus joins an already crowded field of contenders for Razzie recognition at year's end." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 28, 2007
3/4 65% Jindabyne (2006) " Only the third feature film Lawrence has directed since the surreal black comedy cult favorite Bliss (1985), Jindabyne marks yet another triumph for the director." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 27, 2007
3/4 90% Stephanie Daley (2006) " Stephanie Daley ultimately stays with you is chiefly due to Tamblyn, late of television's Joan of Arcadia. She gives a penetrating, stunningly unaffected performance that should be remembered, come award season." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 20, 2007
1.5/4 11% Perfect Stranger (2007) " More silly than suspenseful, this sleekly produced, high gloss piece of trash isn't quite in the so-bad-it's-good category of schlock films, but it comes mighty close, thanks to a gonzo twist of an ending." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 13, 2007
2/4 68% Disturbia (2007) " By and large, the characters in Disturbia do all the dumb, reckless things we've come to expect -- and rightly mock -- in cheesy suspense flicks." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 13, 2007
3.5/4 73% In the Pit (2007) " A fascinating and eye-opening chronicle of work and class issues in contemporary Mexico." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 6, 2007
3.5/4 85% The Hoax (2007) " A jazzy, whip-smart, and mischievous account of the one of the great literary cons of the twentieth century." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 6, 2007
0.5/4 8% Are We Done Yet? (2007) " There's not a whiff of freshness in all of Are We Done Yet?, which goes for the very lowest common denominator in terms of laughs -- and still misses that broad mark 99 3/4 percent of its seemingly interminable running time." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 4, 2007
0.5/4 70% Ten 'til Noon (2005) " A real waste of time." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 30, 2007
1.5/4 50% Race You to the Bottom (2005) " A wisp of a film, dramatically threadbare, and saddled with a brittle and affected performance by Williams." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 30, 2007
3/4 66% Meet the Robinsons (2007) " It's got wit, heart, and razzle-dazzle to spare." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 30, 2007
3/4 95% Offside (2006) " A beguiling, deceptively simple slice-of-life drama, shot cinéma vérité style, Offside reaffirms Jafar Panahi's preeminence as one of the most humanistic and socially progressive filmmakers in contemporary Iranian cinema." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 23, 2007
3/4 92% Journey From the Fall (2007) " Journey From the Fall deserves commendation for its intelligent and nuanced account of the Vietnamese refugee experience. Kudos to Tran and his fine cast, many of whom had never acted before, for making this moving and artfully crafted film." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 23, 2007
2.5/4 45% Pride (2007) " Pride is a watchable if overly superficial film that nonetheless builds to a genuinely stirring conclusion." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 23, 2007
2.5/4 86% The Namesake (2006) " An unfocused and overly episodic drama that emotionally truncates what could have been a richly textured saga of an Indian family torn between assimilation and tradition." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 9, 2007
2/4 60% 300 (2007) " One of the casualties of all this digital-effects wizardry is a sense of emotional immediacy. There's a conspicuously remote quality to much of the movie that drains the film of the visceral energy it so desperately needs to make an impact." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 9, 2007
2/4 35% Reno 911!: Miami (2007) " Dissipates the series' smart blend of satire and slapstick with its threadbare plot, excessive running time (even at 84 minutes), and pedestrian direction." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 3, 2007
1.5/4 6% Full of It (2007) " While Pinkston does a serviceable job and makes an all-too believable nerd, he's neither charming nor funny enough to give the material the extra spark it so desperately needs to engage us." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 2, 2007
2/4 66% Black Snake Moan (2007) " For a film touted as a lurid, blues-themed Southern Gothic melodrama evocative of William Faulkner at his most decadent, Craig Brewer's Black Snake Moan turns out to be a disappointingly tame and rather conventional morality play." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 2, 2007
3/4 84% Breach (2007) " A solid feat of filmmaking across the board, Breach brings a long-awaited end to the drought of good movies at the multiplex." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 16, 2007
2.5/4 84% Bridge to Terabithia (2007) " Any film celebrating the power of imagination is always welcome. Due to its rather pedestrian execution, however, The Bridge to Terabithia ultimately comes up short." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 16, 2007
3.5/4 93% The Lives of Others (2006) " Bleak yet never completely despairing, this superbly acted and richly atmospheric film has a gravitas and thematic complexity that's sadly absent from most contemporary American films." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 9, 2007
1.5/4 5% Because I Said So (2007) " Playing a ditzy control freak of a mother with serious boundary issues, Keaton comes across as such a screeching, flailing flibbertigibbet that you want to give her costars tranquilizer dart guns." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 2, 2007
3.5/4 92% An Unreasonable Man (2007) " A substantive and fairly balanced overview of 'Citizen Nader's' decades-long rise and sudden, precipitous fall from liberal political grace." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 2, 2007
1.5/4 11% Blood and Chocolate (2007) " You could almost overlook the chemistry vacuum between Bruckner and Dancy, but the shots of actors leaping and morphing into wolves are so cheesy that they make the bargain-basement special effects in Teen Wolf look Oscar worthy in comparison." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 27, 2007
3.5/4 83% Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story (2006) " Incredibly powerful -- and never more so than when the filmmakers turn their cameras on the Yokotas and other victims' families, many of whom channel their pain and anger into political activism." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 26, 2007
2.5/4 55% Seraphim Falls (2007) " For all its many virtues, not the least of which are its ambition and its obvious intelligence, Seraphim Falls is an honorable disappointment." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 26, 2007
2.5/4 74% Fah talai jone (Tears of the Black Tiger) (2007) " What should be a zippy, good-natured parody of genre elements instead becomes a labored, almost oppressively stylized cinematic pastiche that's only sporadically engaging." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 19, 2007
2/4 19% Factory Girl (2007) " Miller bears an uncanny resemblance to Sedgwick and gives a striking, emotionally raw performance that deserves a much more richly imagined and vividly rendered narrative backdrop than the superficial one provided by Factory Girl." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 19, 2007
2.5/4 91% The Italian (2007) " Graced with honest performances by the entire cast, The Italian is nevertheless a frustrating disappointment that promises much more than it ultimately delivers." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 19, 2007
3.5/4 84% Black Gold (2006) " An important and timely film that may make you think twice before downing your next cup of joe." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 13, 2007
4/4 100% Verdict on Auschwitz: The Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial 1963-1965 (2007) " A monumental achievement." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 12, 2007
1.5/4 26% Stomp the Yard (2007) " Unlike Spike Lee's School Daze, Stomp the Yard barely explores the social dynamics of its university setting beyond the fraternities' 'step' competition." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 12, 2007
0.5/4 4% Happily N'ever After (2006) " Painfully devoid of charm, wit, and ingenuity, this interminable, tongue-in-cheek slough through Fairy Tale Land is so jaw-droppingly awful, the executors of the Brothers Grimm literary estate should consider taking legal action." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 5, 2007
3/4 85% Unconscious (2006) " Spanish writer/director Joaquin Oristell brings 2006 to a mostly delightful close with Unconscious, a clever and sweetly risqué period farce brimming with frothy charm and tongue-in-cheek wit." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 29, 2006
3/4 54% The Good Shepherd (2006) " Handsomely crafted and impeccably acted by an all-star cast, this quietly riveting and meticulously detailed film presents a fascinating portrait of Cold War-era espionage." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 22, 2006
3/4 74% The Painted Veil (2006) " The third and best cinematic adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham's 1925 novel, The Painted Veil is a beautifully mounted and incisively acted period piece, bristling with intelligence and caustic wit." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 20, 2006
2.5/4 33% The Good German (2007) " What should be a ripping good yarn, powered by high voltage stars, instead comes across as another of the director's audacious but unsuccessful experiments -- a cinematic curio where form takes unfortunate precedence over narrative." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 15, 2006
2.5/4 78% Dreamgirls (2006) " Dreamgirls is undermined by its stop-start pacing and sketchily developed characters." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 15, 2006
3/4 78% Charlotte's Web (2006) " The filmmakers have the taste and good sense not to trash White's classic by lacing their narrative with pop culture references." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 15, 2006
2.5/4 100% The Yacoubian Building (Omaret yakobean) (2006) " The Yacoubian Building is a flawed, yet ultimately illuminating film worth seeing." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 8, 2006
3/4 66% Screamers (2006) " An impassioned synthesis of concert film and political exposé about the rock group System of a Down's intensely personal campaign to stop genocide." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 8, 2006
2.5/4 65% Apocalypto (2006) " The film's ultimate descent into laughable implausibility is regrettable, for there's so much that's otherwise genuinely impressive about the boldly realized, yet wildly uneven Apocalypto." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 8, 2006
2/4 19% Two Weeks (2006) " The humor feels forced -- there's a smug, jokey quality to most of it -- and it rarely cuts deeper than your average sitcom quip." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 1, 2006
2/4 38% The Nativity Story (2006) " Beautifully shot, but dramatically inert." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 1, 2006
1.5/4 54% Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny (2006) " Absurdly overlong skit masquerading as a feature film." — Reel.com
Posted Nov 23, 2006
2/4 51% The Fountain (2006) " The Fountain is not an unmitigated disaster -- just a disappointment from an undeniably talented filmmaker." — Reel.com
