The Family That Preys (2008)

"I appreciate what Perry is trying to do with his films, and it's nice to see an urban film that isn't a "Gangsta Picture", but he needs to tone down the soap opera qualities and let his stories unfold naturally."

Burn After Reading (2008)

"If you are a Coens fan you should like it. It's not as funny as THE BIG LEBOWSKI, but there's enough memorable moments and lines in it that will make you want to see it again."

Righteous Kill (2008)

"Moviegoers that haven't seen alot of cop mysteries will probably like it. I have seen too many of them so it was very unoriginal and just silly."

Battle in Seattle (2008)

"Very ambitious, the story constantly jumps back and forth, trying to give both sides of the story. I'll say it's mostly successful."

My Best Friend's Girl (2008)

"It works much better as a comedy, but by the end, the romantic aspect has taken over and there's not much humor to be found after the first half."

Lakeview Terrace (2008)

"This is a b-grade thriller, but with A-list directing and acting. Jackson turns this routine thriller into something worth going to the theater for."

Body of Lies (2008)

"For the most part, this is a pretty solid thriller that combines Government mumble jumble with some pretty exciting action sequences."

An American Carol (2008)

"This is an uneven, uninspired, tired spoof that has about 10 funny jokes throughout."

Blindness (2008)

"Even though it has some problems, I ended up enjoying this atmospheric tale about the evil inside of man, due to Meirelles fantastic visual style."

Appaloosa (2008)

"It's a rousing, efficient western that is about the friendship of two men, just as much as it is about getting the bad guys."

Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008)

"Kids movies over the past few years have proven they can be just as good as grown up films (WALL*E), but this one brings us back to the drawing board."

How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008)

"Hollywood took a mediocre script and hired Pegg, relying on his charms alone to carry the picture. Sorry, it just doesn't work that way. The movie has to be good too."

Igor (2008)

Ghost Town (2008)

"This charming film never quite got off the ground for me. I don't think it's worth a trip to the theater, but might make a better DVD rental."

Choke (2008)

"CHOKE will probably find a following with 19 year old college kids who haven't seen enough good movies to know better, but this felt like a missed opportunity to make something memorably off the wall."

The Lucky Ones (2008)

"It feels like the writers were trying for dialogue that sounded natural and improvisational. Instead, it feels scripted and rehearsed. It's all phony balony!"

Nights in Rodanthe (2008)

"This is one of those unapologetic, tear-jerking romances. There's nothing really wrong with that, but it occasionally lays things on a little thick when it should have been holding back."

Miracle at St. Anna (2008)

"This isn't on the same caliber as SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, but really, what is? This is a decent war movie that should satisfy most fans of the genre."

Eagle Eye (2008)

"Those that are bothered by shaky camerawork might want to stay home or take Dramamine. Considering how promising the premise was, EAGLE EYE is a major disappointment."

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008)

"The last half hour of this is so good, that I wish the rest of it would've been more like it. A better idea would be to stay in and rent BEFORE SUNRISE."

The Express (2008)

Sex Drive (2008)

"Another attempt at being the latest hip,raunchy comedy. And... it rises far above the other impersonators and rip-offs. This movie surprised me in every way."
