Dead Man Down (2013)
"Though the wheels gradually come off the increasingly-preposterous production, all is forgiven on account of the convoluted adventure's compelling storyline, arresting special f/x, and satisfying, if farfetched resolution. "
Crossing the Line (2007)
"Not exactly compelling stuff, especially if you caught the 60 Minutes segment about this traitor. The bio-pic's saving grace is that it offers a peek inside North Korea, a closed society which has previously granted the Western press limited access. "
What Just Happened? (2008)
"More understated than sidesplitting, this biting satire of showbiz offers an amusing enough inside peek at what life might be like in Tinseltown to remain recommended, its mostly inside industry jokes notwithstanding. "
Cadillac Records (2008)
"Highly recommended musical melodrama revisits rise of Chess Records, despite the glaring omission of Aretha who recorded her very first album with legendary company in 1956. How about showing the Queen of Soul a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T? "
To the Limit (2008)

Hallam Foe (Mister Foe) (2007)
Mardi Gras: Made in China (2005)
The Exiles (1961)
War, Inc. (2008)
"Like a campy cross of Dr. Strangelove and Wag the Dog, this celluloid anti-war screed serves up a mesmerizing melange of action, romance, slapstick, intrigue, sentimentality and sensuality while warning of the dire prospects of a corporatized planet. "
Meet the Spartans (2008)
African American Lives 2 (2008)
"Ironically, probably the series' most compelling moments revolve around Bliss Broyard, daughter of the late New York Times literary critic, Anatole Broyard, who talks about how she never knew she was part black until the time of her father's death. "
Constantine's Sword (2007)
Dans Paris (2007)
"True to the Will Ferrell formula, going for the joke trumps plot and character development at every turn, with the trademark humor coming via nonsensical slapstick and such Seventies-era fashion statements as cotton-candy afros and loathsome leisure suit "
Three Can Play That Game (2008)
"Though featuring cheapo special effects, phony-looking fight scenes and cornball dialogue, this throwback is readily recommended for anyone who might enjoy a campy cross of Mothra and The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. "
Blade - The Complete Series (2008)
"Though the IRS-entangled Wesley Snipes still remains too associated with the role to be forgotten, Sticky Fingaz certainly held his own over the course of the year he was entrusted with the franchise. "

Good Luck Chuck (2007)
Senator Obama Goes to Africa (2007)
September Dawn (2007)
"Released on DVD at probably the worst time for presidential candidate Mitt Romney, September Dawn is a graphic Western which sheds light on a shameful stain on the legacy of the controversial sect that later became the Church of Latter Day Saints. "

Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)
"Perhaps Brian De Palma was too blinded by his undoubtedly fervent feelings about the Bush Administration's bungling of the invasion and occupation to make an honest appraisal of his message movie's abundance of technical flaws. "
