7.5/10 93% Incendies (2011) To say that 'Incendies' is an intense film would be a gross understatement. It is a disturbingly painful film that is difficult to shake off. - Modamag.com EDIT

6/10 49% No Strings Attached (2011) In some ways, "No Strings Attached" plays out rather conventionally within its genre. At the same time, there is a certain rawness to it that makes it fresher than most rom-com flicks. - Modamag.com EDIT

2/5 9% Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003) In addition to the dim-witted attempt at comedy, the script contains no plot, no intrigue, no originality – nada. - MovieWeb EDIT

3/4 77% Seabiscuit (2003) What "Seabiscuit" the movie has in common with the horse is its heart. That heart lies in the story and within the characters that gallop within it. - Modamag.com EDIT

B 74% Gangs of New York (2002) "Gangs of New York" allows us an inside look at an epic time and the characters that took part in it, although that gaze is imperfect and restricted, it is a worthy effort. - Modamag.com EDIT

C+ 70% Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) While the idea was there, it's unfortunate that the script left us to watch not much more than a bunch of pretty horses running around from place to place to the 'soulful' tunes of Bryan Adams. - Modamag.com EDIT

B- 74% Behind the Sun (2001) It's lyrical and melancholy, despairing and hopeful all at the same time. It's the stuff that movies are made of, yet something is missing. "Behind the Sun" won't leave you hot, but it won't burn you either. - Modamag.com EDIT
