HappyThankYouMorePlease (2011)

"Extremely accessible and relatable with its cute, hip New York vibe and believable, well-written dialogue that doesn't force out stupid MySpace/Twitter/Facebook jokes in order to remind young audiences of how relevant it is." ‐Cinematical

Mary and Max (2009)

"Although a tad sappy and heavy-handed at times, Mary and Max fidgets and wiggles its way into our good spirits by the time it reaches its endearing conclusion." ‐Cinematical

Lovers of Hate (2011)

"Lovers of Hate does a superb job of tapping into a lot of our worst nightmares with some dark, intelligent comedy, and then completely screws us over by making it relatable and believable." ‐Cinematical

Which Way Home (2009)

Peter and Vandy (2009)

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)

"If Star Wars: The Clone Wars were a simple board game stacked up in a toy store aisle, the side of the box would read: "Ages 7 through Check Your Star Wars Ego at the Door."" ‐Cinematical

Bart Got a Room (2009)

Posted May 9, 2008

Ball Don't Lie (2008)

"Had Ball Don't Lie gone the straight linear route and changed the story so that our main character was actually working toward a concrete goal, perhaps the film would've shined." ‐Cinematical

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)

"The HIGHly-anticipated sequel to 2004's Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle comes just how you'd expect it: raunchy, wild, disgusting and completely absurd." ‐Cinematical

Super High Me (2007)

"Super High Me is nowhere near the smartest or most thought-provoking documentary you will ever see, but it certainly delivers enough humor to keep even the non-stoners chuckling for an hour and a half." ‐Cinematical

Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired (2008)

A Complete History of My Sexual Failures (2008)

Incendiary (2009)

Downloading Nancy (2008)

"Downloading Nancy is a sick and twisted rollercoaster ride that climbs fast and drops slowly ... leaving you plenty of time to absorb its raw insanity along the way." ‐Cinematical

The Yellow Handkerchief (2010)

Gone Baby Gone (2007)

Superbad (2007)

"Jonah Hill and Michael Cera displayed some of the best on-screen chemistry I've seen all year, and newcomer Christopher Mintz-Plasse squeezed his shtick in there at just the right moments." ‐Cinematical

Rocket Science (2007)

Charlie Bartlett (2007)

"Here's a film that carries a heavy message about the mis-use of prescription medication amongst today's teens, but does so in a very clever (and fun) way." ‐Cinematical

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

"It's PG-rated summer popcorn fluff at its best, and while the new additions might irritate the hardcore FF fanatics, those simply looking for a check-your-brain-at-the-door night out at the movies will certainly surf away satisfied." ‐Cinematical
