Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
60% 300 (2007) Echoing the finest visual cliches of martial chopfests such as Zulu Dawn, The Seven Samurai and Starship Troopers, 300 is an incredibly engaging romp.‐ Flak Magazine

59% Aquellos que me Aman Tomarán el Tren (1999) Its easy to walk out of the theater feeling confused and slightly tired, rather than challenged and engaged.‐ Flak Magazine

93% The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) It's huge, it's majestic, and, for all of its grand scope, it's a film that will reach out and grab you.‐ Flak Magazine

82% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) Maybe the film's briefly flashy brilliance amidst humble affability was one of the most authentically Minnesotan aspects of the whole deal.‐ Flak Magazine

69% Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy (2001) Clocks in with close to laugh-a-minute hilarity. Its pitch-perfect use of stock footage and sexually loaded quotes takes material already rife with fun and squeezes the most out of it.‐ Flak Magazine

95% The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) It's a film with a heart of gold, and a keen ear for balancing sentiment and style.‐ Flak Magazine

87% The Matrix (1999) As an action film, The Matrix is a winner. As a sci-fi film, it's terrific. As a deep and powerful exploration of the nature of reality and self... well, shoot.‐ Flak Magazine

81% Lumumba (2001) In its efforts to portray a complicated and stunningly powerful human being in blocks of black and white, the shifting shades of gray are almost entirely lost. With them go the heart of the real story.‐ Flak Magazine

74% Lucie Aubrac (1999) Polished to the point of absurdity.‐ Flak Magazine

95% Lost In Translation (2003) Lost in Translation is not a film that stars Bill Murray - it's a film built around Bill Murray the way a house by Frank Lloyd Wright hugs the land.‐ Flak Magazine

91% The Kid Stays in the Picture (2002) The Kid Stays in the Picture is a little out of control and a little out of bounds. It's not a balanced, nuanced, carefully tinted portrait of one man's life in Hollywood. But it's a hell of a lot of fun.‐ Flak Magazine

78% Keep the River on Your Right (2000) It's hard to resist the almost saintly Schneebaum, and it's easy to understand why he gets an gentle ride from the film's directors.‐ Flak Magazine

87% Howl's Moving Castle (2005) Drama is in the details, and Miyazaki is as painstakingly conscious of the fine stitchwork as he is of the pennants and uniforms that create Howl's broad martial spectacle.‐ Flak Magazine

91% High Fidelity (2000) With its solid performances, bumpin' soundtrack and thoughtful portrayal of one of America's most vibrant underground scenes, High Fidelity gets in a groove and stays there.‐ Flak Magazine

74% Gangs of New York (2002) Gangs of New York does something brilliant, and daring, and something a little bit dangerous. It digs around in the ugly part of the American attic and puts flesh back on some of our most embarrassing skeletons.‐ Flak Magazine

87% Far From Heaven (2003) A gorgeously executed rehash of a long-dead decade, presented with fanfare and panache, but intellectually void and emotionally torturous.‐ Flak Magazine

86% The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2000) The Eyes of Tammy Faye is one of most outrageously quirky, cleverly executed and entertaining documentaries since Roger and Me. There's little doubt this film will change minds, turn heads and bust guts.‐ Flak Magazine

89% Eastern Promises (2007) It's to the credit of Eastern Promises that its mobsters don't feel like cartoons. What they do is brutal and dehumanizing, not funny and viscerally thrilling. The film isn't merely filled with crime; it's filled with victims.‐ Flak Magazine

98% Croupier (2000) Croupier embraces neither the zany nor the sublime, and achieves neither as a result.‐ Flak Magazine
