Posted Feb 25, 2010

Posted Feb 5, 2009
5/5 76% Becket (1964) "it finds what's compelling about that history and, more importantly, what's compelling about the people in that history. And, just to be on the safe side, it throws in two of the greatest actors of the day. " ‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Dec 14, 2008
3/5 26% Eagle Eye (2008) "a likable paranoid fantasy that will handily kill a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon... before disappearing into the endless data stream it depicts with such apprehension. " ‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Sep 25, 2008
1.5/5 18% Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) "In watching The Clone Wars, one is filled with the overwhelming urge to grab George Lucas, thank him for his immeasurable contribution to the science fiction canon, and ask him politely to cut it out already " ‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Aug 14, 2008
4/5 83% A Necessary Death (2012) "a gripping tale that raises troubling questions about the nature of art and our voyeuristic society. " ‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted May 17, 2008
