Transformers (2007)

"For some, the movie went on a little long, but true fans didn't mind. (You can tell the true fans, they're the ones who cheer Optimus Prime like a rock star whenever he comes on the screen.)" ‐

Crazy Love (2007)

"It's hilarious, more than a little sad, and totally captivating... it's like really juicy gossip at the water cooler, only the people are telling the dirty secrets about themselves." ‐

Brooklyn Lobster (2005)

"The movie has that 'shiny-object-syndrome'... it tends to get easily sidetracked by things that aren't important to the story." ‐

Evan Almighty (2007)

"They spent a fortune filming all those different animals and mixing the images all together, but I'm not sure it was worth all that trouble for a movie that's a miracle or two short of being divine." ‐

Knocked Up (2007)

"There are some downsides, but you have enough laughs, so it's entertaining. I wouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater, just go in knowing this is not the next classic romantic comedy." ‐

Mr. Brooks (2007)

"Smart, funny and wicked... a combination I would pay to see. Mr. Brooks may not want to be bad, but with the devilishly cruel Marshall by his side, he's oh so good at it." ‐

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007)

"Documentaries can make you concerned for the environment or fascinated by penguins. And now, they can make you cheer for a guy who plays arcade games in his garage." ‐

American Zombie (2007)

"If you're looking for zombie horror, this is not the film for you (not enough gut-ripping and arm-chewing), but if you're looking for zombie fun, check it out." ‐

Blades of Glory (2007)

Shooter (2007)

God Grew Tired Of Us (2007)

Sweet Land (2006)
