The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)

"The movie takes its time entangling a reporter-turned-investigator and a hacking punkette into its multigenerational family mystery, but once it gets there it becomes a solid, old-fashioned slab of detective fiction." ‐Orlando Weekly

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)

"It doesn't aspire to reinvent the crime flick, it merely delivers the genre. But, goddamn, does it deliver." Baltimore City Paper

4/4 89%

Séraphine (2009)

"It ... works as an intimate story of one woman's mental instability; the film commendably does not demur from recognizing that whatever powered Séraphine's art was also responsible for her social awkwardness and institutionalization." Baltimore City Paper

The Soloist (2009)

"You could learn more about the story of mentally ill musical prodigy Nathaniel Ayers in a 12-minute segment of a March 60 Minutes broadcast than in the 109 minutes of The Soloist. But what a wonderful 109 minutes they are." ‐Orlando Weekly

The International (2009)

"The International impressively uses architecture as tone sculpture, primarily setting its action in the clean affluence of polished steel, clear glass and poured concrete modernism. Rarely does a thriller convey such an effortless stench of untouchability" ‐Orlando Weekly

Sicko (2007)

"Moore wisely doesn't editorialize too much about what his camera captures. He knows that it doesn't matter to the audience whether they live in a blue or red state or if they're pro-gun control or not." ‐Orlando Weekly

Lords of Dogtown (2005)

"If you really want to know what's what, check out Peralta's own doc, Dogtown and Z-Boys, which dishes the real deal in adrenaline-pushing detail." ‐Orlando Weekly

Seed of Chucky (2004)

"This 90-minute lobotomy scores a few giggles, but only enough to recommend it to friends you never want to speak to again." ‐Orlando Weekly

Festival Express (2003)

"From the moment Joplin announces her arrival in the film she holds you rapt under her spell." ‐Orlando Weekly

Osama (2004)

"Traps you in a quicksand pull, slowly sucking you into its world until it's too late to escape unscathed." ‐Orlando Weekly

Dysfunktional Family (2003)

"Griffin has displayed better timing and wit on talk shows and Howard Stern." ‐Orlando Weekly

The Kid (2000)

"A heaping helping of Willis' hijinks doesn't help this shovel-full of sugar go down."
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000)

"It's nothing but a mess."
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Scary Movie (2000)

"Its targets are obvious, the darts it throws at them puerile, and they rarely hit their mark."
