"Famed Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's film debut In Bruges is a ferociously funny, deadly serious character study of two Dublin hitmen holed up in the titular Belgian town." ‐ Montreal Gazette

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

"Do we really need another Hulk, following so closely on the very large heels of Ang Lee's 2003 action adventure with the conflicted Marvel comic book superhero. As it turns out, yes, we do." ‐ Montreal Gazette

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

"Spider-Man 3 is better than most comic book-based superhero action epics, but not as satisfying as the first two installments of this multi-billion dollar franchise. I guess familiarity breeds disrespect." ‐ Montreal Gazette

The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000)

"Smart, funny, sophisticated and full of self-referential digs." ‐ Ottawa Citizen
