83% Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) Despite its sophomoric awkwardness, the Chamber of Secrets is a welcome delivery of childlike wonder for a planet of ever- increasing ugliness. - New Times EDIT

97% Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) Watching it, it's hard to believe that these guys were actually meandering across heaths and trudging across rope bridges, with electricians and caterers not far away. It seems more as if this souvenir of the Absurd Ages has... existed for a millennium. - New Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2014
97% Chicken Run (2000) The first feature film from England's Aardman Animation, and the first truly terrific film to be released by DreamWorks. - New Times EDIT

83% Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) I'm applauding. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009
14% The Ugly Truth (2009) Yet another wearying "battle-of-the-sexes" romp that's sure to please dumb people but didn't please me. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009
55% Orphan (2009) A pretty good little B-movie thriller. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009
85% 500 Days of Summer (2009) As with a lot of truly satisfying art, (500) Days asks many more questions than it answers, and does so in such a charmingly sloppy fashion that one's consciousness is left buzzing rather than sedated. - Huffington Post EDIT

77% Julie & Julia (2009) Cutesy kitchen antics aside, one senses here -- across class lines, fifty years and an ocean -- huge shifts in the perception of romance, of profession, of identity. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009
39% The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) Rarely does a movie make me so dearly wish I could come unstuck in time. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009
90% District 9 (2009) This ham-fisted Apartheid allegory involving beleaguered insectoid space aliens herded into the eponymous South African ghetto wins several points because it craftily hybridizes much that was cool about '80s sci-fi. - Huffington Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2009

Read More | Posted May 20, 2009
94% Star Trek (2009) It's been thirty years since I last found myself at the movies, rooting for a black hole. - ÜberCiné EDIT

Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2009

Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2009
94% The Dark Knight (2008) The Dark Knight is grim, loud, ugly, mean and disjointed (four out of five ain't bad!); thus, as an evening of fanboy fodder it's very hard to beat: Call it The Dork Night. - ÜberCiné EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2008
