Bobby (2006)

"There are so many people involved that none of them are given a chance to be special or memorable, until they become victims of a senseless act of violence."

The Fountain (2006)

"The movie has some beautiful and surreal images, but they deserve to be part of a deeper story. I didn't dislike this, but I didn't like it as much as I wanted to when I first saw the trailer."

La demoiselle d'honneur (The Bridesmaid) (2004)

"How does that saying go, 'Always a bridesmaid, never a convicted felon?' Okay, maybe that's not quite right, but it is intriguing and so is this movie."

Happy Feet (2006)

"The movie is fun for a while, then you might be tempted to dance right out of the theatre. It's a little too preachy to be all happy."

Casino Royale (2006)

"They still have the bad guys and lots of action because you can't have Bond without all that, but you get more of a sense of the man behind the martinis."

Copying Beethoven, (Klang der Stille) (2006)

"There is an absolutely fantastic moment when Beethoven conducts the Ninth Symphony. Then they go back to talking and spoil all the good vibes."

Infamous (2006)

"This movie is full of subtle little gems that seem so small and mean so much and they all add up to one powerful film that shouldn't be missed."

Conversations With God (2006)

"A conversation with God should be inspirational and moving, but this conversation loses some of the magnificence and glory when it's channeled through this very ordinary movie."

Running With Scissors (2006)

Babel (2006)

"This is one of those movies that would work better at home, where you could pause the tape when you need to take a break or fast forward when things start to slow down too much."

Flushed Away (2006)

The Queen (1968)

"There's a lot of Oscar buzz about Helen Mirren's performance and it's all deserved, but it takes two to have a great on-screen duo and Michael Sheen is just as brilliant portraying Tony Blair... a royal winner."

The Prestige (2006)

"It will have you talking on the way out of the theatre and maybe thinking about that one glaring error in logic, but it's like an illusion, if you think about it too much, it will spoil the magic."

Shortbus (2006)

"The premise of this story is pretty fascinating but it seems that it gets diluted, not enhanced by the sheer amount of sex. I would be fakin' it if I recommended this movie."

America: Freedom To Fascism (2006)

Employee of the Month (2006)

Open Season (2006)
