B+ 55% The Killer Inside Me (2010) "In this terrific, magnetic performance, Affleck is a bit charismatic, somewhat awkward, and utterly despicable, all at the same time " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jun 17, 2010
A- 94% Winter's Bone (2010) "Strikingly unsentimental. Winter's Bone has no time for backstory, moral lessons, or other cute stuff. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jun 16, 2010
B+ 74% Splice (2010) "When Splice is in full flower, there's something magnificent about it. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Posted May 3, 2010
A- 92% Vincere (2010) "Evokes the historical weight of Europe's Fascist tragedy on a small, resolutely humane, scale. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Mar 19, 2010
C+ 29% Survival of the Dead (2010) "This one's really for fans only. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Mar 5, 2010
B- 53% Green Zone (2010) "This is a kind of experiment, and it's only partly successful. But, set against the most expansive, otherworldly backdrop this side of James Cameron's Pandora, it's an appropriately spooky experience. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Mar 5, 2010
B 83% The Ghost Writer (2010) "Too many scenes here are a bit perfunctory, but they're balanced out well enough by the occasional directorial flourish or long moment of nicely sustained tension. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Feb 23, 2010
B 73% Banlieue 13 - Ultimatum (District 13: Ultimatum) (2009) "When D13: Ultimatum is firing on all cylinders, it's a bad-ass action movie. When it functions as a delivery mechanism for a social message, it's corny as all hell, but still pleasant enough. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Feb 4, 2010
B+ 91% Fish Tank (2010) "Fish Tank walks well-trod ground, but it's still riveting from start to finish. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jan 14, 2010
C+ 43% Jennifer's Body (2009) "Jennifer's Body is full of ideas, but it doesn't have much in the way of tonal control. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Posted Jan 7, 2010
B+ 87% Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) "Nicolas Cage, a born Hollywood skin-walker, somehow hints at a spiritual dimension to all this lunatic mayhem. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Nov 24, 2009
A- 92% Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) "Fantastic Mr. Fox isn't exactly a kids' movie. It's just kid-friendly. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Nov 24, 2009
C 39% 2012 (2009) "2012 is the expensive, large-scale version of the same spectacle presented by downmarket counterparts like the Final Destination and Saw franchises. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Nov 16, 2009
B- 50% Antichrist (2009) "For this kind of Satan-in-the-woods scenario, Von Trier is doing a little too much Scenes From a Marriage and not quite enough The Evil Dead. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Oct 22, 2009
B+ 50% Hardware (1990) "They say all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun. But if you've got a girl and a killer robot, then you're really onto something. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Posted Aug 26, 2009
A- 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) "It's a violent wish-fulfillment fantasy, and if such a thing is necessarily immoral, then Inglourious Basterds is immoral. But it's also -- necessarily -- a provocation. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Aug 26, 2009
C+ 68% Grace (2009) "Grimaces its way through 85 long, low-key minutes just to marvel again and again that, gosh, mommies really love their babies. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

C 7% Ghosted (2009) "A blandly romantic drama with just the whiff of the otherworldly about it. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jul 30, 2009
B+ 55% Orphan (2009) "Its many outright depictions of children in jeopardy are scary, but its marital drama is even more unsettling. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jul 27, 2009
B+ 94% In the Loop (2009) "Unfailingly witty in its speculation that international aggression isn't driven by mania as much as facilitated by banality. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Posted May 29, 2009

Posted May 14, 2009
B 95% Star Trek (2009) "Faced with the task of acclimating new audiences to this venerably corny space opera, J.J. Abrams simultaneously executes a franchise reboot and nostalgia play. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

Posted Mar 19, 2009
C+ 42% The Last House on the Left (2009) "The requisite studio-movie gloss reduces the gritty, documentary-style efficiency of the original. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Mar 18, 2009
C+ 65% Watchmen (2009) "I spent most of the movie scorning Snyder's reverence to the original, then spent the last half-hour resenting him for changing my favorite part. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

B+ No Score Yet Angélique, marquise des anges (1964) "By contemporary standards, this is hilarious stuff -- yet somehow it's still stirring, swooning through its melodramatic paces with the speed and heft of the proverbial greased pig. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jan 19, 2009
C- 57% My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009) "This lowest-common-denominator remake of/sequel to a minor slasher classic succeeds on purely technical terms but, despite the depth effects, it's a serious snooze. " ‐ Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
Posted Jan 18, 2009
