4/5 94% I Wish (2012) There's nothing about I Wish that should have you in tears, and yet, at the end, it's hard not to choke up. ‐ Film Racket

2.5/5 No Score Yet Tan Lines (2007) Quote not available. ‐
Posted Apr 4, 2011
3.5/5 33% Máncora (2008) worth watching simply because it's full of (good-looking) people you'd never otherwise meet who take you to a place you'd never otherwise go ‐
Posted Mar 18, 2010
1/5 32% The Room (2003) It's hard to describe how bad the acting in The Room is. ‐
Posted Jan 6, 2010
2.5/5 No Score Yet Redwoods (2009) Yes, everyone loves a handsome stranger, but at this stage of the game, we need our handsome strangers -- gay or straight -- to do something new and interesting, not just recycle the same very familiar three-act story arc. ‐

2.5/5 64% Where God Left His Shoes (2007) you won't get much out of Where God Left His Shoes other than an appreciation of the fact that you have a home for the holidays. ‐
Posted Nov 17, 2009
2/5 No Score Yet Make the Yuletide Gay (2009) a kindhearted and very low impact coming out tale with only the slightest bit of angst getting in the way of the feel good vibe ‐
Posted Nov 14, 2009
3.5/5 92% The Way We Get By (2009) plucks every heartstring but never in a manipulative or maudlin way. ‐
Posted Nov 12, 2009
1.5/5 17% Eating Out: All You Can Eat (2009) a harmlessly silly gay L.A. comedy of manners that's far more notable for its profusion of abs and pecs than it is for such things as acting, story, and characters. ‐
Posted Nov 10, 2009
2.5/5 No Score Yet West 32nd (2007) Writer/director Michael Kang seems to be going for a Mean Streets vibe, but he's no Scorsese, at least not yet. ‐
Posted Nov 9, 2009
4/5 100% Law of Desire (1987) a pivotal and unmissable piece of the Almodóvar puzzle, a romp that is Pedro at his young and kinky best. ‐
Posted Nov 3, 2009
4.5/5 92% The Dead (1987) a finely polished jewel and a wonderful way to remember a great director. ‐
Posted Nov 3, 2009
3/5 50% Triangle (Tie saam gok) (2007) Your best strategy is simply to sit back, try to follow along, and enjoy the hijinks. ‐
Posted Oct 16, 2009
3.5/5 No Score Yet Half-Life (2008) A healthy serving of Californian suburban angst is topped with a drizzle of existential angst ‐
Posted Oct 15, 2009
2/5 0% A Beautiful Life (2009) There's simply not enough for Maggie and David to do to sustain an entire movie. ‐
Posted Oct 1, 2009
4/5 No Score Yet Island Etude (2006) While Island Etude will obviously have special resonance for Taiwanese viewers, anyone can take something away from Ming's grueling, poetic journey. ‐
Posted Sep 27, 2009
2.5/5 39% Full Grown Men (2008) Full Grown Men might work better if the audience was given a reason to feel even a small sliver of sympathy for Alby ‐
Posted Sep 27, 2009
3.5/5 77% Valentino: The Last Emperor (2009) What a nice surprise to settle in for a fashion documentary and find a touching love story hidden within its glamorous folds. ‐
Posted Sep 27, 2009
3.5/5 86% Kâbê (Kaabee) (Kabei: Our Mother) (2008) Painful though it may be, Kâbê is finely crafted and totally enjoyable. Watch ‐
Posted Sep 8, 2009
4/5 83% Après lui (2007) a great effort from a great actress who is at the peak of her powers in this, her sixth decade in movies. ‐
Posted Sep 2, 2009
4.5/5 100% Aruitemo Aruitemo (Still Walking) (2008) There's also a touch of Bergman-style family angst here, and in the tale of the drowned golden boy and the surviving son, even a little bit of Ordinary People. ‐
Posted Aug 27, 2009
1.5/5 No Score Yet Ryan and Sean's Not So Excellent Adventure (2008) a low-budget movie set to indulge in antics aimed squarely at the 12-year-old boy demographic. ‐
Posted Aug 12, 2009
2/5 0% Dim Sum Funeral (2008) There were plenty of opportunities for originality here, but other than toying with a layer of Asian exoticism, writer Donald Martin doesn't stray far from convention ‐
Posted Jul 30, 2009
2/5 No Score Yet Boys Over Flowers: Final (2008) reveals its biggest problem in its title ‐
Posted Jul 29, 2009
2/5 No Score Yet Twisted Souls (2007) the devolution into animalistic psychos isn't really credible. ‐
Posted Jul 21, 2009
2/5 78% Sukai Kurora (The Sky Crawlers) (2008) how could a movie about the amazing sky-high acrobatics of aerial dog-fighting teenagers end up being so boring ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2009
2/5 No Score Yet 40 Dias (2008) Is there any point to all this driving, any revelation, any epiphany? Not really ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2009
2.5/5 No Score Yet The Ramen Girl (2008) may make you hungry, but it won't warm your heart. ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Personal Effects (2009) Despite its R rating, Personal Effects will not go down in history as the movie in which Ashton Kutcher boinks Michelle Pfeiffer ‐
Posted Jun 25, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet In Love We Trust (2008) needlessly long ‐
Posted Jun 14, 2009
3/5 43% Killshot (2008) the quality of the A-list cast's performances do deserve a tip of the hat. ‐
Posted Jun 12, 2009
3.5/5 61% Newcastle (2008) a bit like Endless Summer meets The Karate Kid ‐
Posted Jun 12, 2009
4/5 78% A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (2008) Well-written, beautifully shot, and meticulously acted ‐
Posted May 30, 2009
3.5/5 50% The New Twenty (2009) Writer/director Chris Mason Johnson is a sharp observer of urban life, and his story moves along so briskly that you won't spend much time considering the fact that it should have been set in 1999 ‐
Posted May 26, 2009
3.5/5 71% The Towering Inferno (1974) break out the popcorn, sit back, and enjoy a galaxy of stars picking up their fat paychecks and having a great time. They absolutely don't make 'em like this anymore ‐
Posted May 13, 2009
2.5/5 33% Between Love & Goodbye (2008) lacks professional polish ‐
Posted May 8, 2009
2.5/5 No Score Yet Japan Japan (2008) Unusual? Yes. Satisfying? Well, you kinda have to be in the mood for that sort of thing. ‐
Posted May 7, 2009
3/5 73% Chocolate (2008) Ultimately there isn't much of a movie here, just a series of great-looking and expertly filmed showdowns that are worth the price of a rental ‐
Posted May 3, 2009
2.5/5 No Score Yet Mulligans (2008) Writer/star Charlie David may have wanted to keep things low key, but the movie ends up coming across as low voltage ‐
Posted May 3, 2009
4/5 78% A Jihad for Love (2008) director Parvez Sharma sets out across the world to find out what it means to be gay and Muslim. In most cases, it means trouble. ‐
Posted Apr 29, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Baby (2008) The main problem here is there is no one to root for ‐
Posted Apr 3, 2009
2/5 39% Goal II: Living the Dream (2007) If your kids play soccer, they may appreciate this tall tale of Santi's rise from obscurity to shin-padded glory, but once you pop in the DVD, chances are you won't want to stick around. ‐
Posted Apr 3, 2009
3.5/5 No Score Yet Beautiful Ohio (2006) unfolds in extremely surprising ways ‐
Posted Apr 3, 2009
4/5 100% A Bittersweet Life (Dalkomhan insaeng) (2005) What's great about all this isn't just the gloriously choreographed violence (among the best I've ever seen) but also Lee Byeong-heon's bravura and surprisingly profound performance ‐
Posted Mar 10, 2009
4/5 No Score Yet Man Walking on Snow (2001) I don't think I'll ever forget the weird imagery of him making his way along the snow-blasted streets of his miserable town while an eerily slow electronic version of the French Can-Can song plays on the soundtrack. ‐
Posted Mar 9, 2009
4/5 86% Wonderful Town (2007) Laundry drying in a breeze has never looked so threatening. ‐
Posted Mar 9, 2009
3/5 0% Weapons (2007) one slice of life that I hope to never see in my town ‐
Posted Mar 9, 2009
3.5/5 94% Chris & Don (2007) A wonderfully crafted documentary about a most unusual long-term relationship ‐
