Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 64% The Cake Eaters (2007) There are only so many story threads an ensemble cast can hold. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 27, 2009
1.5/4 44% Bella (Beauty) (2006) It wants to answer the questions it's clearly too timid to ask, but the questions are always so much more interesting. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 9, 2007
3/4 100% Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure (2007) Sea Monsters will undoubtedly bring open-mouthed awe and joy to brainy kids from ages 8 to 108. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 19, 2007
1.5/4 22% Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) It's all so much more fun when you're the one with the controller, telling the heroes what to do: Watching this stuff unfold onscreen is like sitting by while someone plays your video games without you. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 24, 2007
3.5/4 70% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo re-creates the gritty and spastic look of Days while brilliantly utilizing dark space and shadow to enhance the terror. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 11, 2007
1.5/4 38% The Abandoned (2007) Perhaps the worst offense of The Abandoned, however, is that so little effort is made by the screenwriters to make any 'sense' of it all. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 26, 2007
2.5/4 90% Metal: A Headbanger's Journey (2005) The metal scene emerges throughout the documentary as the recruitment center of an army of misfits, where the outcasts of the world can seek each other out based on their love of the angsty, eardrum-destroying tunes their parents warned them about. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 12, 2006
2.5/4 92% Sisters in Law (2005) Despite the lack of an especially defined narrative arc, the people are what make the movie -- as they should in a tale like this. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 5, 2006
2.5/4 53% Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story (2006) ... succeeds as a modest tribute to the kind of aging boys club that idles for hours in somebody's parents' rumpus room, its members tossing around big-man talk but trapped in emotional adolescence. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 28, 2006
3/4 32% Trudell (2006) Despite the rambling finish, however, overall the film is a thought-provoking and graceful portrait of a tenacious peace warrior whose frankness is his greatest weapon. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 10, 2006
3/4 49% The Hills Have Eyes (2006) From complete dismemberment to extreme shotgun violence, Aja & Co. not only pull out the stops on this one, they decimate them. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 10, 2006
3/4 36% Don't Ask Don't Tell (2002) A surprisingly thoughtful social film. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 11, 2002
2.5/4 No Score Yet Ciao America (2002) Lighthearted and often funny. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 11, 2002
1/4 27% Amy's O (Amy's Orgasm) (Why Love Doesn't Work) (2002) The whole mess boils down to a transparently hypocritical work that feels as though it's trying to set the women's liberation movement back 20 years. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 4, 2002
3/4 79% The Sleepy Time Gal (2001) A thoughtful, moving piece that faces difficult issues with honesty and beauty. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 27, 2002
2.5/4 57% Group (2003) The nine women are a touching reminder that we all have our own, very different problems, but by relating to each other, we can come to terms with just about anything. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 26, 2002
3/4 60% The Independent (2001) A charming and funny look at the independent filmmaking business and the thin line between a masterpiece and a $9 nap. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 28, 2002
2/4 37% Sordid Lives (2000) While the film at times feels like a clumsily acted play, a surprising turn by Delta Burke carries the cast out of the doldrums of an often-strained plot line. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 28, 2002
1/4 26% Chelsea Walls (2001) Were Dylan Thomas alive to witness first-time director Ethan Hawke's strained Chelsea Walls, he might have been tempted to change his landmark poem to, 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Theatre.' ‐ Boston Globe
