Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 68% Everything's Gone Green (2007) The film exists in that familiar Douglas Coupland never never land populated by twentysomethings facing cubicle farms and shoddy romances revealed under quasi-Ikea lamps. ‐ Premiere Magazine

1.5/4 44% Fay Grim (2007) What borders on a pleasingly intricate spy plot lead by the grimacing Parker Posey gets hopelessly tangled in the wrinkles in the story, and it all never quite pays off. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2007
3/4 89% Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten (2007) Director Julien Temple examines Strummer's life and motivations with a flair for unearthing endlessly quotable bandmates, friends, and artists who have been inspired by him. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2007
3/4 95% Casino Royale (2006) Crass product placement, implausible dialogue, plot points that drag on, Casino Royale has them all. The reason none of that really matters is Daniel Craig. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Nov 17, 2006
3/4 91% Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) Any movie that lists someone with the job of 'feces provider' in the credits is either going to be a disaster or one of the funniest, most outrageous films of the year. Borat is clearly the later. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2006
3/4 69% Babel (2006) What unfolds, courtesy of Innaritu and the excellent cast, is a commentary on how the 21st century is a constantly upset balance of cultures whose every move has repercussions upon each other. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2006
3.5/4 69% Snakes on a Plane (2006) Just when you settle into laughing at the stock characters and one-liners, Snakes manages to scare the hell out of you. As the deranged crime boss says, "Woo!" ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Aug 18, 2006
2/4 25% The Da Vinci Code (2006) It fells a little silly to watch movie stars like Tom Hanks make gee whiz, awestruck pronouncements about the bloodline of Jesus Christ out loud. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 19, 2006
1.5/4 33% Poseidon (2006) Petersen's Poseidon is a ridiculous collection of disaster clichés, eye-rollingly obvious symbolism, and two-dimensional stereotypes. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 11, 2006
2/4 83% Somersault (2004) Just about everything that happens to Heidi explores that awkward cusp between adolescence and adulthood, and the film maintains a mild, interesting suspense because of it. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 1, 2006
2.5/4 33% The Sentinel (2006) Sometimes, as in the case of The Sentinel, a good old rat-in-the-government picture that hews to the conventions of the genre can be an enjoyable, not terribly taxing entertainment. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 1, 2006
2.5/4 57% Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006) The sequel is satisfying for the same reason as the first movie. The sweet animals are witty, and while the physical comedy is simple, the main characters ultimately aren't. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 13, 2006
3/4 60% Lonesome Jim (2006) Buscemi's small story of failure, depression -- and ultimately, love -- in one Indiana town rings painfully true-to-life. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 11, 2006
2/4 43% She's the Man (2006) Implausible as she is, her voice-changing, artificial guy-speak, and penchant for causing fights makes the whole film fun and watchable. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 4, 2006
1.5/4 26% The Shaggy Dog (2006) The Shaggy Dog feels like little more than a stale rehash with a promising cast whose talents haven't been tapped. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 28, 2006
1.5/4 9% Ultraviolet (2006) Amid every action cliche in the book, outmoded stereotypes, and a plot derivative of every futuristic drama made in the last fifteen years, Ultraviolet comes off as nothing more than a pale copy of better, more inventive films. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 25, 2006
2/4 23% Freedomland (2006) If nothing else, Freedomland tries very hard to be a good film. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2006
2.5/5 40% Running Scared (2006) Ultimately, it is a serviceable, well-made thriller that earns its R rating. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2006
3/4 92% Our Brand Is Crisis (2005) This unlikely pairing of relentless U.S. pollsters and a Bolivian election is a fascinating glimpse of the Americanized marketing of international politics (and vice versa). ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2006
1.5/4 6% Big Momma's House 2 (2006) Just like the first film, it's another basic, unoriginal fish-out-of-water story stocked with predictable plot twists and physical comedy. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Feb 21, 2006
2.5/4 55% The Polar Express (2004) Everything is so nearly real, down to the characters' hair fluttering in the icy wind, that it's uneasily surreal, the way that clowns scare tots more than they amuse them. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Nov 16, 2004
3.5/4 85% Chaos (2003) Affecting, brilliantly acted French-language drama. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 17, 2003
.5/4 11% National Security (2003) Dugan's predictable, thin-plotted lark reads as little more than a black guy-white guy Three's Company. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 4, 2003
2.5/4 22% The Hot Chick (2002) Basically harmless and grudgingly funny. ‐ Premiere Magazine
