Hot Fuzz (2007)
Perfect Stranger (2007)
Black Book (2007)
The Reaping (2007)
"In a movie with no purpose beyond small-scale grotesque spectacle, I can only imagine its purpose as a cinematic waiting room for the end of the world where the guy in charge isn't capable of counting to ten. "
After Hours (1985)
"The grandfather of all heists movies. Essential."
The Lookout (2007)
The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)
"Gratuitous, slow-as-molasses and interminably dull-witted; this is a horror movie for no one. Dialogue runs the gambit from "Shitman the Barbarian" to "smelling like shit" in a crappy stinker where even the cameraman blows. "
The Last Mimzy (2007)
I Think I Love My Wife (2007)
Down (The Shaft) (2001)
"Great little B-movie horror with Naomi Watts stealing the show."
"In English, means Run Tell That."
The Namesake (2006)
""The Namesake" is a hurried tapestry of cross-cultural experience that periodically derails due to episodic hopscotching in Sooni Taraporevala's script adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri's debut novel about. "
Believe in Me (2007)
"Whether based on fact or not, now is not the time for yet another feel good sports movie about a small town coach who battles against local public perception to take his team of misfits to the championships. "
"Vincent Price lording over a giant torture pendulum! Awesome."
"Apart from its pro-war propaganda, that comes in the form of unrelenting voice-over narration, "300" is a dog of a movie where cookie-cutter CGI battle scenes show thirty actors pretending to fight to the death. "
Beyond the Gates (2005)
"In spite of heartfelt performances from John Hurt and Hugh Dancy, director Michael Caton-Jones ("Scandal") keeps an arm's distance from his volatile subject and fails to expand on an epic tragedy that is being replicated in places like Darfur. "
The Host (2007)
Wild Hogs (2007)
Reno 911!: Miami (2007)
Black Snake Moan (2007)
Avenue Montaigne (2006)
The Number 23 (2007)
""The Number 23" is a movie that doesn't believe in itself."
Cobra Verde (1987)
"Herzog & Kinski = Logic and passion."
"Classic social satire and slapstick humor!"
Exterminating Angels (2007)
Color Me Kubrick (2007)
"It's a truffle of a movie that may leave you feeling like you ate one too many purple chocolates, but secondary performances by Honor Blackman (remember the original "Avengers") and the ever-kooky Ken Russell add texture to the comic motif. "
The Astronaut Farmer (2006)
"Stuck between an idealized '60s era idea of liberty and our post-9/11 clampdown under Big Brother, "The Astronaut Farmer" is a high concept movie that never bothers to bridge its essential gap of sanity and reason. "
Music and Lyrics (2007)
The Hitcher (2007)
"Newcomer Jodie Whittaker fulfills the elusive arc of her budding character, but it is the great Peter O'Toole who makes every ticking of the clock seem a momentous occasion in this nuanced drama about the power of the female body to inspire. "
Notes on a Scandal (2006)
"Without a clear protagonist, "Notes On a Scandal" collapses under the weight of its significant subject matter. Nevertheless, Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench rise above the ill- prepared source material with their passionate performances. "
Happy Feet (2006)
The Painted Veil (2006)
Charlotte's Web (2006)
"Steve Buscemi's invigorating vocal characterization of Templeton the rat is the only high point in this sleep-inducing live action-animated revamp of the 1973 animated classic based on E.B White's 1952 children's book. "
The Queen (2006)
Night at the Museum (2006)
