4/5 92% Gloria Bell (2019) In Gloria Bell, Moore gives one of her most sympathetic performances, ringing true as a mature, gutsy woman who won't let her age, or the failings of men, define her. - The List EDIT

2/5 52% Four Brothers (2005) Singleton. bereft of serious ideas if not visceral talent. now appears to have nothing more to offer than plenty of bang for your buck. - The List EDIT

3/5 48% Bad News Bears (2005) Bad News Bears finds Linklater marking time professionally enough -- and while hardly essential viewing, it's unpretentious, amoral fun. - The List EDIT

4/5 87% 3-Iron (2004) Oddly, 3-Iron is a violent yet serene meditation on the transitory nature of human existence. A work of genuine poetry, it's a cinematic hole in one. - The List EDIT

1/5 40% Kicking & Screaming (2005) You may have to be dragged kicking and screaming to see this silly kiddie footie flick. - The List EDIT

4/5 54% Madagascar (2005) Madagascar's surface fluffiness conceals a hard-boiled philosophical center as it offers a trenchant examination of social Darwinism. - The List EDIT

2/5 41% A Lot Like Love (2005) Although A Lot Like Love is advertised like a generic teen comedy, its failure to provide [Ashton Kutcher] with his fourth consecutive U.S. number one reflects the film's avoidance of pratfall-style gags in favor of slushy romantic sentiment. - The List EDIT

3/5 81% Friday Night Lights (2004) With Billy Bob Thornton's garrulous Coach Gary Gaines masterminding every play, you'll get caught up in the action even if you can't tell your 'first-and-down' from your 'time-out.' - The List EDIT

3/5 53% Spanglish (2004) Spanglish eventually comes off as compromised and awkward as its hybrid title suggests. - The List EDIT

2/5 64% Coach Carter (2005) Despite the attraction of fluently filmed basketball sequences, director Thomas Carter's simplistic approach to the social and educational issues involved makes this vacuous MTV-produced movie fall well short of the basket. - The List EDIT

3/5 39% Meet the Fockers (2004) Dodging any aspirations to satire or drama, Meet the Fockers is an intricately wrought, barely credible sitcom, but it's also as gratingly one note as a whoopee cushion. - The List EDIT

2/5 41% Ladder 49 (2004) Gail Gilchriest's witless script leaves Phoenix with little to do but flex his muscles, while Travolta rarely steps outside the realms of cliché in his role as a supposed mentor figure. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
3/5 51% Vanity Fair (2004) Hardly high-drama, but it's gently satirical and arguably represents the spirit of Thackeray's mischievous attitude to high society better than Kubrick's overwrought Barry Lyndon. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
4/5 68% Closer (2004) For all its stunt casting and knee-jerk sexual frankness, Closer gives an underlying resonance to an emotional world that is normally the preserve of glossy soap operas. - The List EDIT

Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2019
2/5 88% The Vanishing (2019) The profile of both subject and stars promises a far more interesting experience than the drab final product, which takes a convoluted route towards a dull denouement that the audience already knows. - The List EDIT

4/5 96% Beats (2019) Ortega and Macdonald's performances are so vivid that it's a shame that the black and white photography may well relegate this drama to cult status; there's nothing about the setting that merits such a deliberately arty presentation. - The List EDIT

2/5 27% The Aftermath (2019) The cliches featured in director James Kent's adaptation of Rhidian Brook's novel are more dog-eared than a ration book. - The List EDIT

2/5 22% Miss Bala (2019) A tough, female-led thriller from the director of Twilight sounds great on paper; unfortunately, the lack of nous in Miss Bala's politics runs the film smack into a big brick wall. - The List EDIT

4/5 69% Papi Chulo (2019) Butler defuses cliché with keen observation, not only in terms of Sean's sense of loneliness, but regarding Ernesto's guilt about his own duplicity. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2019
2/5 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) A comedy drama bearing the pungent whiff of a brand-awareness exercise for World Wrestling Entertainment. - The List EDIT

Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2018
3/5 58% White Boy Rick (2018) It's an entertaining ride, but the lack of a knock-out punch lessens the impact of the careful work all round. - The List EDIT

2/5 19% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Crunching bones and tearing flesh are effectively rendered, yet expectations of cheap thrills drain away as the scares fail to materialise. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2018
2/5 60% Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us (2018) Regrettably, The Power of Us offers little to convert new recruits - it's a candy-coloured advert that effectively showcases product. - The List EDIT

3/5 76% Smallfoot (2018) If the setting and characters seem familiar, the film's warm and fuzzy message should stave off the winter blues. - The List EDIT

3/5 22% Mile 22 (2018) Mile 22 is about wham-bam video game action rather than geopolitical treatise but there's enough fantasy shock and awe here to justify anyone's buck. - The List EDIT
