4/5 50% Brahmin Bulls (2014) "Slow-paced, quiet, and thoughtful, Mahesh Pailoor's "Brahmin Bulls" is an unusual film. " ‐ Examiner.com

3/4 44% Walking With The Enemy (2014) "It is faithful enough to history to bring alive horrible memories to those among the few lucky survivors who were children at the time. " ‐ San Francisco Examiner

3/4 92% Solntse (The Sun) (2005) "Alexander Sokurov's "The Sun," arriving in the U.S. five years after its release in Europe, is a stunning film, fascinating to some, probably sleep-inducing to others. " ‐ San Francisco Examiner
Posted May 25, 2010
3/4 51% Holy Rollers (2010) "Though it lacks depth, Holy Rollers captures your attention early on and is able to sustain this momentum throughout. Kevin Asch has learned from his influences well and his feature debut takes its place among the better recent independent crime dramas. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 58% Shrek Forever After (2010) "If you had a tough time getting through Shrek the Third, you'll probably have an even tougher time with Shrek Forever After. Oh, but it's in 3-D. That should make things pop, but it didn't make much of an impression, sort of like the rest of the animati " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 50% The Living Wake (2010) "A small, peculiar film with a big, grating personality, The Living Wake is like a party crasher at an intimate gathering, momentarily intriguing and difficult to forget, but mostly for the wrong reasons. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2.25/4 43% Robin Hood (2010) "Robin Hood was a workmanlike film with nothing special to recommend it other than the two lead actors and beautifully shot English countryside. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2.75/4 40% Letters to Juliet (2010) "Seyfried is delightful in this movie whereas I have found her just annoying in others. Maybe it is that she gets to share the screen with Bernal and the luminous Vanessa. Those two could make anybody look good. Still Seyfried is also good in her scenes wi " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 85% Looking for Eric (2010) "Though certainly well intended and with a pleasant enough spirit, it lacks anything in the way of urgency, usually the defining trait of a Ken Loach movie. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 12, 2010
2.5/4 49% The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010) "If the movie works on any credible level, it's as a deranged, surreal experience. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 11, 2010
2/4 68% Babies (2010) "For the first part of the movie the cuteness of the babies is enough but after that the sameness of the film starts to sink in and the need for something else arises. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3/4 18% Princess Ka'iulani (2010) "You mourn the princess not only because of her cruel fate and that of her country, but more personally because of the magnificent way Q'orianka Kilcher portrays her on the screen. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3/4 72% Iron Man 2 (2010) "This sequel was an improvement in many ways. I preferred Don Cheadle as Tony's friend Rhodey, the two seemed to have a better rapport, and Mickey Rourke just can't be beat as a villain " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 7, 2010
3.75/4 82% The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2010) "The Disappearance of Alice Creed is not flawless, and Blakeson occasionally ties himself in knots with his complicated plotting, which often leads to Alice, Vic and especially Danny behaving in a manner that forwards the plot rather than one that naturall " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 2, 2010
1.25/4 8% Furry Vengeance (2010) "Kids will probably enjoy the scenes with the animals getting the best of the humans, and they will all absorb the message that nature needs to be protected, All the bad acting and boring moments in the script will be overlooked. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 2, 2010
1.75/4 15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) "Haley is a solid replacement for Englund as the murderous Freddy. He is particularly effective in the scenes of Freddy's earlier life. Although his talent was put to better use in "Watchmen" this role should give him employment for years to come. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted May 2, 2010
2.5/4 49% The Losers (2010) "The action in the film is continuous and the excitement is intense. Still there is something just a bit off with the whole plot, look and feel of the film. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 18% The Back-up Plan (2010) "It is nice to have Lopez back in a romantic comedy and for the most part it is an acceptable vehicle for her. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 25, 2010
3/4 59% Dancing Across Borders (2010) "The film is a wonderful mix of ballet rehearsals and performances, the saga of a young artist's struggle and success, and a personal story of dealing with cross-cultural conflict and resolution. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 25, 2010
1.5/4 57% Cemetery Junction (2010) "While Remi Adefarasin's cinematography gives the picture a superficially cinematic sheen, this is essentially small-minded fare, unimaginative in its ambitions and clumsy in its execution. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3.5/4 84% Get Low (2010) "Robert Duvall can do no wrong. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 20, 2010
2/4 31% Paper Man (2010) "What the film aims to be, I think, is a dry, witty and intimate glimpse into the lives and souls of these misunderstood everyday people, but simply cannot connect " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 62% The Joneses (2010) "The execution just didn't live up to the clever premise. If we aren't going to get into the heads of these characters as they witness the havoc they wreak, then director should have kept up the satirical tone of the " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3.5/4 75% Greenberg (2010) "Through the casual pacing of the script and Harris Savides' gloriously brumous cinematography, Greenberg becomes more about other people's interpretations of Roger than the man himself. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3/4 53% Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010) "For anyone who has struggled to fit in, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is full of nostalgic and painful reminders of the horrors of middle school, from gym class to school plays. It's full of genuine laughs, one of the rare films that can by enjoyed by kids and adu " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

3/4 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) "It is, quite simply, a good story told in an entertaining, imaginative and heartfelt way. Now come on, DreamWorks; was that really so difficult? " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 51% Chloe (2010) "Chloe, a shallow, formulaic thriller that feels rushed and somewhat routinely slapped together, registers as a surprising disappointment. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 15, 2010
2/4 26% Why Did I Get Married Too (2010) "One trip to this well was enough. The cast, returning from the first film, is good enough but the story is shrill and unnerving. By the time a tacky ending arrives the audience is ready for something a little lighter and a little brighter. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

1.5/4 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) "Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Danny Huston play the three main Greek gods %u2013 Zeus, Hades and Poseidon.

3/4 68% The Runaways (2010) "The Runaways a rollicking good time, with plenty of funny moments mixed in with the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, I was left with the sensation that something was missing. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 15, 2010
4/4 76% Kick-Ass (2010) "After the deluge of huge, effects-laden superhero blockbusters that has dominated cinemas in the past decade, there's something pleasing in seeing the modestly budgeted Kick-Ass come out of nowhere to provide more imagination and entertainment than almost " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

2/4 53% Green Zone (2010) "Green Zone begins with Shock and Awe, and Paul Greengrass tries to maintain that tone for the rest of the movie. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 15, 2010
2.5/4 84% Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) "Running an obscene 2 1/2 hours, presenting a story which could have made a halfway decent half-hour episode of a half-assed TV series, this Potter has no focus, a comprehensive plot, any semblance of cohesion, purpose, meaning. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders
Posted Apr 13, 2010
2.5/4 61% A Perfect Getaway (2009) "Twohy's script dares and succeeds in peppering the dialogue with funny insider references to Hollywood scripts and actors. " ‐ Entertainment Insiders

Posted Apr 13, 2010
3/4 86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) ""Girl" is very much a movie without concession or restroom breaks: go prepared.
