Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 60% 300 (2007) The exaggerated, stylized carnage takes on an almost Homeric beauty while still remaining in the historical ballpark. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Mar 8, 2007
2.5/5 34% Breaking and Entering (2007) [Minghella's] need to meticulously control every situation, to so perfectly intertwine the lives of every character and to tie up every loose thread creates a degree of contrivance so unrealistic that the fine performances of the cast are muted. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 1, 2007
3.5/5 89% Zodiac (2007) Very little of it works as well as it should, but somehow the strength of his obsessive, single-minded direction makes you overlook all that. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 1, 2007
1.5/5 4% Because I Said So (2007) There's not a member of the cast who isn't better than this premise or its execution. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Feb 1, 2007
2/5 21% Catch and Release (2007) Catch and Release opens with a funeral, which is a not-so-funny way for a romantic comedy trying to pass itself off as a drama to begin. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jan 25, 2007
3.5/4 29% Smokin' Aces (2007) ... a lot more than it seems, even if you have to wait until the last five minutes to realize just how much more that is and just how integral the violence is to Carnahan's point. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 25, 2007
5/5 95% Pan's Labyrinth (2006) With Pan's Labyrinth, director Guillermo del Toro taps the same magical vein that made his Devil's Backbone so memorable. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 18, 2007
4/5 92% Volver (2006) The unpredictable way all these stories begin to weave together makes it impossible to know where Volver is going until the final act. But it's the exploration of the ties that bind mothers to daughters that offers the real substance. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 18, 2007
3/5 49% We Are Marshall (2006) It doesn't really matter that you've seen variations of the story time and time again. What matters is, you're not going to have a terrible time. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Dec 22, 2006
65% The History Boys (2006) Unfortunately, the staid production never manages to justify the leap from stage to screen. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Dec 21, 2006
3/5 62% Blood Diamond (2006) Who wants to watch something so gruesome? ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 7, 2006
3/5 47% The Holiday (2006) You'll find it hard to leave the theater not beaming. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 7, 2006
2.5/4 32% Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus (2006) Whereas Secretary didn't have to worry about truth, Fur never quite escapes it, nor embraces it. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Dec 1, 2006
3/5 51% The Fountain (2006) It's that faith in [Aronofsky's] artistic vision -- a faith that's evident during every second of The Fountain -- that sustains the movie even when you have no idea what the hell is going down. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 23, 2006
2.5/5 50% Fast Food Nation (2006) Linklater and Schlosser's script is uneven and, ultimately, too erratic in focus to make a lasting impact. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 16, 2006
72% Stranger Than Fiction (2006) [Screenwriter Zach Helm is] called by those in the know "the next Charlie Kaufman..." ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Nov 11, 2006
2.5/5 26% A Good Year (2006) It's ultimately a so-so movie that does little more than answer what should've been an ironic question: What would happen if Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe made a romantic comedy? ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 9, 2006
3.5/5 76% Catch a Fire (2006) The narrative resists the grandiosity of Vendetta and the self-righteousness of Syriana. ‐ Orlando Weekly
