1/4 35% V/H/S: Viral (2014) I couldn't wait to hit eject on this whole jittery mess. - Seattle Times EDIT

3.5/4 78% Harmontown (2014) Harmon states at one point in the film that he just wants to be "the guy who makes people happy." This documentary does just that. - Seattle Times EDIT

1.5/4 57% V/H/S (2012) [A] too-long, violent horror anthology ... - Seattle Times EDIT

2.5/4 67% Headshot (2012) While there are some great twists and revelations here, I just kept wishing it would stop with all the cinematic tricks and get to more conventional, straight- forward storytelling. - Seattle Times EDIT

1.5/4 36% Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012) Tim and Eric's man-child characters, who look at the world with wide eyes and total trust, must be an acquired taste. And while fans of the television show may enjoy this movie, this reviewer did not. - Seattle Times EDIT

3/4 No Score Yet The Hammer (2011) Overall this is a gentle and fascinating alternative to your typical noisy big-screen blockbuster. - Seattle Times EDIT

3.5/4 60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) If you're not a fan of the series, you might want to look elsewhere, but for those of us who enjoy the show, this bouncy, high-energy documentary/concert movie is a refreshing reminder of what the show does best. - Seattle Times EDIT

1.5/4 46% Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (2011) It's all a big cinematic jumble and, quite frankly, an expensive-looking mess. - Seattle Times EDIT

3/4 71% sleep furiously. (2011) This film is best taken as a visual ode to an all-but-forgotten way of life. - Seattle Times EDIT

2.5/4 74% Gunnin' for That #1 Spot (2008) In the opening section of the film, we get to know them through interviews, game footage and scenes of family life. It's here where the film shines, giving us a glimpse into what it's like for young athletes being groomed for the NBA. - Seattle Times EDIT

3/4 60% Revengers Tragedy (2001) Probably destined to join Cox's other films (Sid and Nancy, Repo Man) as a cult favorite. - Seattle Times EDIT

3/4 23% Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003) Anyone who grew up watching television or revels in every episode of E! True Hollywood Story (and you know who you are) should enjoy this movie. - Seattle Times EDIT

1.5/4 23% Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) The first film at least offered some spooky atmosphere and suspense before all the violence began, but this time out we're just given dismemberment, decapitation and a javelin through the head. - Seattle Times EDIT

1.5/4 15% Pokemon Heroes (2003) If you still have Pokémon fans at your house, I suppose there's no harm in taking them to see this movie; but with Pixar's Finding Nemo set to open in a couple of weeks, surely you can find something better to do this weekend. - Seattle Times EDIT

10% What's the Worst That Could Happen? (2001) What's the worst that could happen? That the summer movie season won't produce a better comedy than this lame Martin Lawrence/Danny DeVito crime caper. - Seattle Times EDIT

59% The Low Down (2001) One of the most aimless, hard-to-follow films I've seen in a long time. - Seattle Times EDIT

71% Brigham City (2001) Several scenes in this movie progress at a snail's pace. - Seattle Times EDIT

33% Just Visiting (2001) It could be worth a visit to your local multiplex if this kind of frothy foolishness appeals to you. - Seattle Times EDIT

42% Someone Like You (2001) Ashley Judd tries to make Jane interesting, but seems to be longing for some decent situations and dialogue -- and no bull. - Seattle Times EDIT

57% Godzilla 2000 (2000) Despite the millennial title, you're not going to see anything new here. - Seattle Times EDIT
