Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
47% Mister Lonely (2007) It's subdued a bit, and not nearly as nauseating. And I'm not sure I mean either of those things as a compliment.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 25, 2007
83% Import/Export (2006) Ultra-grim.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 25, 2007
46% Cassandra's Dream (2007) Strong performances, especially from the never-better Farrell. This might be the first time I've watched him and not been completely distracted by that big black caterpillar above his eyes.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 25, 2007
75% My Best Friend (2007) Patrice Leconte's latest is a little light and a little telegraphed, but still quite enjoyable.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 22, 2007
36% Sleuth (2007) Fans of the original, or even people who saw the original and said, 'Meh,' will likely be angered by this update --- especially the end, or more directly, the lack thereof.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 15, 2007
No Score Yet Deficit (2007) Bernal has worked with some of the planet's greatest directors so it comes as no surprise that the actor's directorial debut is accomplished, thoughtful and entertaining.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 15, 2007
17% Cleaner (2008) The "cleaning" thing was done and done better in Curdled and in terms of a crime drama, Cleaner just doesn't measure up.‐ Planet Sick-Boy

Posted Sep 15, 2007
83% It's a Free World (2007) Wareing stands out among the slate of typically Loachian/genuine performances, managing to be both unlikable and empathetic at the same time.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 14, 2007
96% Persepolis (2007) It always seems like there's one very strong, very different animated film that gives the mundane, computer-generated 'toons a run for their money come Oscar time, and this is almost certainly going to be this year's version.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 14, 2007
45% Redacted (2007) Poorly executed, poorly acted, and poorly imagined.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 14, 2007
81% Lars and the Real Girl (2007) Gosling once again shows his range and ability to pick quality projects in this sweet little script from Six Feet Under scribe Nancy Oliver.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 14, 2007
73% In the Valley of Elah (2007) A "very special" episode of CSI: Red State.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 14, 2007
60% Mogari no Mori (The Mourning Forest) (The Forest of Mogari) (2007) Beautifully photographed, but Uda steals the show as Shigeki.‐ Planet Sick-Boy

Posted Sep 13, 2007
89% The Visitor (2008) The performances are very strong and the film is very well-written.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 13, 2007
89% Eastern Promises (2007) One of the best taut thrillers you'll see in 2007.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 13, 2007
76% The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) Loping, lyrical, contemplative, poetic, Malick-meets-David Gordon Green style.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 12, 2007
89% Alexandra (2007) The performance of 80-year-old Vishnevskay is priceless.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 12, 2007
96% 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007) Definitely worth checking out, but also not worthy of beating a handful of other pictures in Cannes competition.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 12, 2007
93% No Country for Old Men (2007) It's the Coen's masterpiece.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 12, 2007
47% Rendition (2007) Three or four years ago, a movie about innocent citizens being pulled into secret torture prisons because of the color of their skin might have raised an eyebrow or two, but those days are long gone.‐ Planet Sick-Boy

94% My Winnipeg (2007) Part real documentary and part drop-dead hysterical farce...‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 8, 2007
28% Slacker Uprising (2008) Again, totally preaching to the choir (of which I'm obviously part), so I'm not sure what the intent is here. All I know is I liked it.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 7, 2007

87% The Orphanage (2007) Absolutely terrifying and heartbreaking.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 7, 2007
52% Margot at the Wedding (2007) I think it's one of the best-written films I've seen this year, and it features what might be the greatest performances to date in the careers of Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Sep 6, 2007

Posted Aug 16, 2007
2/10 40% Hot Rod (2007) Andy Samberg is tolerable in a 90-second Digital Short on Saturday Night Live, but very, very far from tolerable in a 90-minute feature film.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Aug 16, 2007

Posted Jun 21, 2007
4/10 23% Evan Almighty (2007) Every decent bit is in the trailer, which means someone spent nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to make a funny 90-second advertising spot.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
Posted Jun 21, 2007
4/10 29% Lucky You (2007) Along with Spider-Man 3's Kirsten Dunst, Barrymore will form one powerful cog of this weekend's Cinematic Caterwauling Craptacular. Yes, it's an exciting time to be an American.‐ Planet Sick-Boy
