Breach (2007)

"A member of the Religious Right involved in something duplicitous sexually and politically, while shrouding themselves in a holy water-soaked American flag? I know, it seems impossible."

Norbit (2007)

"Usually, it takes six or so months for an actor to parlay a Best Supporting Actor nomination into a cringe-worthy career-derailing performance in an unbelievably awful picture."

The Dead Girl (2006)

"A very unconventional way to tell a story we've seen about a million times, and for that (along with the lean 94-minute running time), I am thankful. Keep an eye on Moncrieff -- she's the real deal."

"Alfonso Cuarón's incredibly bleak peek into the very near future is a huge success on both an emotional and technical level."

Venus (2006)

"In terms of showing viewers that the elderly still have something to offer the youth of today, Venus pummels Rocky Balboa into a bloody pulp."

"It's totally refreshing and, honestly, almost a little unnerving to see (a film) where the protagonists don't get to high-five each other before walking off into the sunset."

Rocky Balboa (2006)

"Sly Stallone writes, directs, produces, and stars -- a real quadruple threat, assuming you're talking about unintelligible, monotonous, pandering, and (presumably) incontinent."

"Soderbergh shoots the picture using only equipment and standards available in the mid-40s. If that's not the kind of thing that puts wind in your sail, then move along."

Blood Diamond (2006)

"Cinemaniacs with a palate sophisticated enough to tell a carat from a carrot will recognize the picture as over-produced, overly long, and potentially racist to boot."

The Holiday (2006)

Apocalypto (2006)

"Inexorably tedious, and full of performances that are either absurdly malevolent in an over-the-top way (like Ciarán Hinds' King Herod) or completely wooden (like everybody else)."

"There are a handful of really nice moments in Fiction, and almost none of them have to do with Helm's outrageous setup."

"This is a very dark, very pretty picture (photographed by Óttar Guðnason) that has little else to offer, and its ending, at least for my taste, was a little corny."

"In terms of recent Pacific Theatre flicks, it ain't much better than John Woo's instantly forgettable Windtalkers, which is more than a little ironic since both pictures share the same vapid lead (Adam Beach)."

"There are a lot of blue state folks who are offended by Cohen's portrayal of Kazakhstan as a backwards country of idiots. Hopefully, Cohen will find a way to make fun of these fun-hating cretins in his next picture"
