2/5 61% Arctic Tale (2007) Some kids at the screening I attended were growing restless ... and so was I.‐ Cinematical

1/5 1% Daddy Day Camp (2007) An extended sitcom for kids, with very little to entertain adults.‐ Cinematical

2/5 42% No Reservations (2007) Mired in cliches, the movie wants us to believe what it tells us, instead of showing us genuine people and emotions.‐ Cinematical

.5/5 7% I Know Who Killed Me (2007) What is billed as a suspenseful thriller is lacking any suspense, and generates cheap thrills only from scenes of torture, gore, and the occasional "jump" moment of pseudo-shock.‐ Cinematical

3.5/5 78% Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) More suspense than the other films in the series ... and an improvement upon the book from which it was adapted.‐ Cinematical

3.5/5 91% Rescue Dawn (2007) Lush visuals and a fascinating story ... but hardcore Herzog fans may not approve.‐ Cinematical

4.5/5 96% Ratatouille (2007) An oasis in the middle of summer-movie mediocrity.‐ Cinematical

2/5 23% Evan Almighty (2007) The combination of pratfalls and platitudes doesn't quite work.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2007
3/5 78% Surf's Up (2007) It's refreshing to see a kids' movie that entertains in an almost classic fashion, although there's not much to capture the interest of adults.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2007
3/5 60% Gracie (2007) More charming and enjoyable to watch than it deserves, primarily because the performances transcend the script flaws.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2007
1.5/5 17% Georgia Rule (2007) A tedious yawn with only a few bright spots.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted May 12, 2007
2/5 43% In the Land of Women (2007) The kind of movie that gives the term 'chick flick' a bad reputation.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2007
2/5 69% Disturbia (2007) Apart from a contemporary setting, nothing about Disturbia gives it an advantage over Rear Window.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2007
2.5/5 No Score Yet Last Western (2006) I wasn't quite sure what its point was supposed to be, and where the central focus was.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 No Score Yet Crazy Again (2006) Its focus is muddled - it's half a tour film, and half an exploration of a man driven to the brink of sanity, trying to fight the voices in his head.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 78% Summercamp! (2007) At times it feels like a feature-length Flaming Lips video, which is not at all a bad thing, except I kept wondering if Wayne Coyne would pop out from behind a tree and start somersaulting or building sandcastles.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 No Score Yet Letters from the Other Side (2006) While the film doesn't disguise its political leanings, it isn't blatantly manipulative or preachy.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
1.5/5 40% Live Free or Die (2006) A Will Ferrell/Steve Carell-style comedy that lacks the charm associated with those actors' films.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 No Score Yet The Cassidy Kids (2006) The characters, rather than the plot, make this an enjoyable movie.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 68% Hard Candy (2006) The film's strength is in the way it continually sustains suspense, particularly in the use of sound effects. Very little is shown, but much is heard.‐ Cinematical

1.5/5 41% American Dreamz (2006) Did writer-director Paul Weitz think that U.S. audiences would be too dumb to appreciate actual satire?‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 26% Hoot (2006) A safe, slight film that doesn't possess the chaotic hilarity I associate with Carl Hiaasen's best writing.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 40% Running Scared (2006) The action throughout Running Scared is involving and fast-paced enough that you don't notice the number of cliches being invoked in this film.‐ Cinematical

1.5/5 55% Glory Road (2006) It isn't meant to be a movie that makes us think, or that makes us uneasy in any way. It's meant to make us feel good.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 74% Cars (2006) It's never a good sign when the funniest, most entertaining part of a movie are the closing credits.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
4.25/5 90% Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story (2005) If you go into this movie expecting a traditional narrative tale, you may get discouraged. You have to throw away your expectations and sit back and wait to see what happens ... if anything.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
4/5 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) I don't think the movie will appeal to a wide audience, but I could see it becoming a perennial cult classic, right up there with Repo Man.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
1.5/5 44% Take the Lead (2006) Feels like a product, with decisions made for audience appeal rather than creativity.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 68% Mrs. Henderson Presents (2006) One of those "prestige" pictures that you can watch with your dear old Mom ... provided your Mom won't be offended by the unclothed young ladies.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 49% The Dying Gaul (2005) An absorbing, fascinating film, but disturbing and a little grim.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 75% Zathura (2005) At times it seemed like events were occurring just so the kids, or the kids in the audience, could learn their lesson a little bit more.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.25/5 19% Domino (2005) A well-paced action movie, if a little long, with an unusual feeling of surrealism behind the action.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 50% Nobelity (2006) It is difficult to sustain an audience's interest with talking heads, and a few of the Nobel Laureates have trouble explaining concepts in terms that are easy to digest during a documentary.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2/5 19% Step Up (2006) Tatum and Dewan have none of the chemistry of Astaire and Rogers, but with help from a good supporting cast and talented choreography, the movie rises slightly above the usual cookie-cutter dance-movie fare.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
2.5/5 71% Invincible (2006) As far as sports films go, Invincible doesn't offer anything original or notable ... except Mark Wahlberg's performance.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
4/5 97% 51 Birch Street (2006) Doug Block delves effectively into family mysteries without offending or showing disrespect to any of the parties involved.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.75/5 83% Gretchen (2006) A beautiful, delicate look at the nasty pains of teenage relationships. And Gretchen could totally kick Napoleon Dynamite's butt.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 55% Marie Antoinette (2006) For two hours, we are treated to a display of prettiness. It's like one big elaborate meringue, delicate and intricately decorated, but without much past the surface.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
1.5/5 12% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) A garden-variety horror movie that provides no innovation on the old "kids stranded in the woods with a scary monster" plot.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 69% The Woods (2006) Not a groundbreaking or innovative horror film, but contains many elements that make horror movies appealing: screaming schoolgirls, spooky forces of nature, stylish camerawork, a good sense of humor throughout ... and the presence of Bruce Campbell.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.75/5 68% Brothers of the Head (2006) The edgy humor and oddly compelling lead characters make it well worth seeing.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 29% Tideland (2006) Gilliam appears to be trying to throw us all off-guard, to make the theatergoing experience unpleasant. But in its own unlovable way, the movie is an unforgettable experience.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 61% Bug (2006) Blends paranoia, trust and love into a riveting story, driven by intense characters.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3/5 100% GamerZ: One Game to Rule Them All (2005) An old-fashioned coming-of-age relationship comedy wrapped in the universe of role-playing gamers.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2007
3.5/5 83% Grindhouse (2007) Tarantino's feature Death Proof is the better homage to grindhouse, while Rodriguez's feature Planet Terror is more a contemporary update of the old drive-in movie genre.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2007
3/5 72% American Zombie (2007) Doesn't add much to the contemporary zombie genre or even the horror comedy genre but does provide light entertainment, especially if you like jokes about filmmaking.‐ Cinematical
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2007
3/5 54% Manufacturing Dissent (2007) A Michael Moore-style documentary about Moore himself.‐ Cinematical
