Finding Forrester (2000)
A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
Tropic Thunder (2008)
"Some of it is very funny, some of it is too broad."
The Rocker (2008)
"It is a goofy and amusing late summer film with more than enough laughs to recommend it."
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
"One of the more mediocre entries in the entire Star Wars catalogue."
Henry Poole Is Here (2008)
"This film really and truly moved me."
Fly Me to the Moon (2008)
"You can skip it in all three dimensions."
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
"Penelope Cruz deserves a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her fiery, crazy, sexy work in Vicky Cristina Barcelona."
Hell Ride (2008)
"Maybe only once every six months am I in the mood for jokey sadism, but this struck me as the right picture for the right time."
Pineapple Express (2008)
"Watching Pineapple Express is like sitting dead sober in a room with a bunch of stoned people who are laughing uproariously. They're having a great time. You're not."
"Wonderful writing, good performances, beautiful photography, and a lot of food for thought."
"You believe these four are friends now and will probably be friends when they're little old ladies."
"I was never a fan of the first two, but those are masterpieces compared to this clunk 'o junk."
Sixty Six (2006)
"I think it's a very heartfelt story, but we get the same thing over and over again."
Swing Vote (2008)
"Not a bad movie, probably OK to rent on DVD, but I'm saying don't rush to the theaters."
Frozen River (2008)
"What a beautiful and impressive job by first-time writer-director Courtney Hunt."
CSNY Déjà Vu (2008)
"It is a good, strong documentary."
Boy A (2007)
"Bleak but expertly rendered."
Step Brothers (2008)
"Don't watch it on an airplane, don't check it out on cable, don't walk past the bargain basement bin where it's been sold."
Brideshead Revisited (2008)
"Yes, it's a compressed version, but I found it very enjoyable."
"The movie gets into some pretty freaky territory in the third act, but for this casual fan of the series, it's a strong effort featuring some great characters."
American Teen (2008)
"Compared to the contrived junk we see on MTV masquerading as a reality series, I think this is very authentic."
Mamma Mia! (2008)
"A lot of fun."
Space Chimps (2008)
"I have to admit, there's a sort of dopey, cute, harmless charm to this movie. It actually doesn't stink."
"I think it's one of the best movies of the year."
"I'm not saying it's that good, but it's a solid if sometimes messy and confusing crime story."
"It's definitely a mish-mash, but really good performances."
"Very good stuff."
The Wackness (2008)
"A minor triumph."
Meet Dave (2008)
"Even in C-movie junk like this, Murphy manages to wring a few laughs out of the material. But the humor is so broad it barely fits onto the screen."
"This is more about the culture of celebrity, the sensationalism, a power hungry, media-hungry judge, and all the things that have happened since then. And as such, it's a very good documentary."
The Dark Knight (2008)
"This is a rich, complex, visually thrilling piece of pop entertainment, as strong as any superhero epic we've ever seen."
"It's just a lot of fun."
"It's made for fans of films that really just want to see some great visuals, some amazing sequences and some terrific performances."
"It's one of the best documentaries of the year, no doubt about it."
Finding Amanda (2008)
"Broderick's sunny spin on the deeply flawed Taylor is interesting but eventually defies belief. In the third act, Finding Amanda loses steam altogether."
Get Smart (2008)
"One of the more pleasant surprises of the year."
"The action sequences here are first-rate, the performances are uniformly excellent, the cinematography as good as I've seen in any film this year."
"I think this film is very well-directed, and you have some very funny performances."
"One of the best movies of the year. Just so beautifully done."
The Love Guru (2008)
"It's just deadly."
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
"It's really well done. It's a lot of fun."
The Happening (2008)
"It almost dares you to roll your eyes or laugh at certain scenes that are supposed to be deadly serious. But, you know what, I appreciated this creatively offbeat, daring sci-fi mind-trip."
