Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 77% Fast Five (2011) This is about as good as brainless Hollywood filmmaking gets, and I'm already excited for whatever silly name they give to the next installment. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted May 2, 2011
3/5 59% Scream 4 (2011) Even if it's not very scary, it's refreshing to see the Scream franchise come back to life - at the very least to acknowledge how awful things have gotten. ‐ Razorfine Review

3.5/5 71% Hanna (2011) There are sure to be thousands of High School film geeks that will see this film and think it's one of the best films ever. It's not, but only a real buzzkill could watch Hanna and not have a fun time ‐ Razorfine Review

3/5 78% Role Models (2008) Role Models might be a light weight in a lot of respects, but it's certainly entertaining enough to justify spending time with. But it might not be worth looking up to. ‐ Razorfine Review

4/5 81% Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) It might not be a high-point in Allen's storied career, but were it in any other filmmaker's filmography, it could be. ‐ Razorfine Review

2.5/5 39% Henry Poole Is Here (2008) The movie isn't saying anything, just asserting a religious belief without ever questioning it. That's sloppy writing, regardless of what religion or ideology it's preaching. ‐ Razorfine Review

1/5 12% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) 'Tomb of the Dragon Emperor' is as much fun as a Nickelback concert that lasts five hours. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Aug 3, 2008
3.5/5 55% Step Brothers (2008) Ferrell and Reilly effortlessly give us overgrown middle-schoolers in a brutal sibling rivalry. It's hilarious and endearing, watching pre-pubescent boys try to act grown-up. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jul 25, 2008
4.5/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) The Dark Knight is like an 800-pound alpha-male gorilla that charges and jumps on you to show you who's boss. And you love every pound of it. ‐ Razorfine Review

1/5 20% Meet Dave (2008) This comedy is not awful - you won't be laughing at it; but you're not going to be laughing with it much either. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jul 11, 2008
4.5/5 96% WALL-E (2008) Pixar might well be the best production house in all of Holllywood, animating or otherwise. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jul 1, 2008
2/5 41% Hancock (2008) Not a bad film; but when a movie with so much potential for entertainment winds up being more boring than it is exciting or thought-provoking, it's not unfair to say it fails. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jul 1, 2008
1.5/5 14% The Love Guru (2008) For all of its cheesy and easy jokes, it is funny on occasion; but it's not a movie Mike Myers or anyone else should ever feel they have the right to brag about. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jun 21, 2008
1.5/5 18% The Happening (2008) It is clear that Shyamalan is a fraction of the filmmaker he was even just six years ago. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jun 13, 2008
3.5/5 87% Kung Fu Panda (2008) It's not astoundingly good, but given it's a non-Pixar U.S.-animated feature, it's certainly good enough. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jun 13, 2008
1.5/5 38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) The middle-schoolers will flock to it for it's wealth of not-so-subtle sexuality jokes, but anybody else is going to have trouble forgiving this terribly production that lucks into a few laughs. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jun 13, 2008
3.5/5 74% Son of Rambow (2007) What really makes the film is the level of creativity that went into its production. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Jun 13, 2008
2/5 39% Speed Racer (2008) It's too much too fast, and likely won't make it past your short-term memory. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted May 9, 2008
3.5/5 53% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) Post-Borat, the racial commentary isn't as scathing as it could have been just a few years ago; but it's still a funny ploy that gives the movie an edge of social mindedness ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Apr 25, 2008
2.5/5 85% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) As a comedy, it's worth seeing; but as a film - despite some fine work from Jason Segal - it's just not quite there. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Apr 19, 2008
3/5 35% National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) There's no subtext, and it's not trying to change your mind either. It's just a fun time. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Mar 7, 2008
4.5/5 91% There Will Be Blood (2007) Day-Lewis' ability to put his character on the verge of madness, with Anderson's obsessive style of clean filmmaking go together in this one like a good film and an Oscar. ‐ Razorfine Review
Posted Mar 7, 2008
2/5 8% 10,000 B.C. (2008) It's a fun movie that's never hard to sit through, it just never gives you much of a reason to sit through it. ‐ Razorfine Review
