Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 29% Provoked (2007) A melodrama dressed up just enough to hold interest, in the retelling of an undeniably important story.‐ GreenCine

3.5/5 70% I Am Legend (2007) I Am Legend is three film genres for the price of one: Science Fiction, Action, and Horror, and while it's no classic in any one arena it remains edgy fun.‐ GreenCine

4/5 81% Fong juk (Exiled) (2006) Exiled veers on the pretentious ...but the whole thing has such a humor about itself that it's hard to carp about it.‐ GreenCine

4/5 50% Days of Glory (1945) A terrifically gripping WWII drama that manages to balance introspection with bursts of battlefield action.‐ GreenCine

5/5 97% Killer of Sheep (2007) The fantastic thing about this beautiful film is how little it tries to make a statement about anything; it is, simply, life.‐ GreenCine

3/5 79% Sharkwater (2007) If the film sometimes gets choppy, the filmmaker's passion for the subject and the disturbing revelations to be gained from watching the film make it more than worthwhile.‐ GreenCine

3.5/5 85% Blast of Silence (1961) The lost noir classic starts off a bit dubiously... but the increasingly sleazy, realistic atmosphere begins to take hold of you, until you're fairly well rapt.‐ GreenCine

3.5/5 No Score Yet Paddle to the Sea (1968) It's surprising how touching the simple film is. The marvelous photography makes viewing it a breathtaking experience.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 89% The Unforeseen (2008) If The Unforeseen has a fault, it would be a slight lack of focus. A flawed, but beautiful documentary.‐ GreenCine

3/5 No Score Yet You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown It's not up there with the best of the animated Peanuts shorts... but will still leave Peanuts nostalgists as happy as a warm puppy.‐ GreenCine

2.5/5 30% War, Inc. (2008) This absurdist political farce has its moments but requires a deft touch for satire ... perhaps no one could have made the uneven script work.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 94% Encounters at the End of the World (2007) ...May not have the shock and drive of Grizzly Man, but it's a poignant and even haunting work nonetheless‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 69% The Wackness (2008) With a game cast and cool songs from the era... heartfelt moments battling clumsy ones, The Wackness isn't quite dope but, like a good mixtape it is full of highlights.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 60% In the Electric Mist (2009) Tavernier captures the moody, misty Louisiana atmosphere and has a low-key, slow pace that fits the energy of the sticky South.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 94% Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006) Tell No One has shades of Hitchcock's Vertigo -- and not to its detriment. [An] extremely gripping and fascinating suspense film.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 92% Sugar (2008) Full of life, even sexy and at times bouncy (and with a fine score), Sugar is a lovely, moving treat... full of rich supporting characters.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 73% Hansel & Gretel (2007) The story gets a bit convoluted as it rolls on, rushing through a few too many plot points and explanations, but slowly builds the layers of dread.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 88% Jerichow (2008) Jerichow is not the masterfully complex work that Yella* was, but it's very tightly constructed and made, showing in some ways Peltzold's maturity as a filmmaker.‐ GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
65% Coffee and Cigarettes (2004) Between the wry trademark Jarmusch deadpan humor (and there is quite a bit of it) and the great cast, this one is worth a look, particularly for those already in the Jarmusch camp.‐ GreenCine
