Terminator Salvation (2009)

"Definitely a 'summer blockbuster' and has enough great moments in it to outweigh any groaners that it may also have. In fact, the good moments outweigh the bad about 20 to 1."

Burn After Reading (2008)

"Worth viewing if only to see Clooney, McDormand, and Pitt all play what Malkovich's character refers to as a 'league of morons'."

Primeval (2007)

Alpha Dog (2007)

Turistas (Paradise Lost) (2006)

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006)
