Burzynski: the Movie (2010)
Double Take (2009)
Sex and the City 2 (2010)
The Juche Idea (2011)
Perrier's Bounty (2010)
" A moderately engaging, but uneven hodgepodge of comedy, action, drama and romance that lacks surprises, imagination and palpable thrills. It's barely saved by lively characters and all-around solid performances. "
John Rabe (2010)
Shrek Forever After (2010)
Holy Rollers (2010)
" Tackles an intriguing premise, but squanders its opportunity to be brave and powerful because of its lazy, pedestrian screenplay that fails to breath any life into its characters and to profoundly explore its provocative issues about faith. "
" A mostly captivating documentary that will appeal to avid soccer fans, but it could have used more insightful and provocative interviews with sharper questions about such an politically integral soccer team. "
" Marginally intriguing, easy-to-follow and stylishly edited, but it barely scratches the surface of its topic and leaves avid film buffs hungry for more thorough, revealing explorations and analyses. "
Touching Home (2010)
" A heartfelt albeit slightly contrived drama that boasts a brave, emotionally resonant performance by Ed Harris as well as inspirational messages about the important virtues of courage, love, hope, passion and family. "
Looking for Eric (2010)
Robin Hood (2010)
The Living Wake (2010)
" A refreshingly original, well-acted and delightfully bizarre amalgamation of comedy, satire, drama and tragedy that's often amusing and unpredictable, but lacks a genuinely poignant emotional core. "
Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo (2009)
" Occasionally drags and offers nothing surprising or new, yet it remains intriguing and provocative thanks to Gibney's easy-to-follow and comprehensive assessment of Abramoff's rise and fall to power. "
Ocean of Pearls (2008)
Mother and Child (2010)
" Never overstays its welcome and manages to be curiously engaging, heartfelt, funny and amusing at times, but without much-needed insight, it leaves you feeling unenlightened and slightly underwhelmed. "
Multiple Sarcasms (2010)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
" Offers fewer surprises and exhilarating scenes than its smarter predecessor, briefly loses its footing, and suffers from excessive contrivance, but remains mindlessly entertaining thanks to its solid cast and some thrilling action sequences. "
" A refreshingly unconventional, invigorating and provocative slice of experimental cinema brimming with brilliantly bizarre and endlessly stylish visuals. It's a one-of-a-kind experience that must be seen to be believed. "
Harry Brown (2010)
Please Give (2010)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Anton Chekhov's The Duel (2010)
" A sporadically tender drama filled with breathtaking scenery, exquisite production values and a radiant performance by the beautiful Fiona Glascott, but suffers from stilted dialogue that often keeps you at an emotional distance from its flawed characters "
Ghost Bird (2009)
See What I'm Saying (2010)
The Losers (2010)
Boogie Woogie (2010)
" Overstuffed and occasionally meandering while boasting a terrific ensemble cast and a radiant, brave performance by Gillian Anderson. It's an unflinchingly honest, provocative potpourri of the harsh realities of the art world. "
Behind The Burly Q (2010)
Red Birds (2010)
" An overlong, strained and poorly-paced drama with that suffers from Omar Metwally's bland performance and excessive style over substance. It can't be saved by an otherwise terrific cast, beautiful scenery and exquisite production values. "
