Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 57% Feast (2006) With some amusing performances (Jason Mewes and Henry Rollins, in particular) and an appealingly random sense of humor, Feast hits more often than it misses. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Sep 21, 2006
3/4 85% The Descent (2006) A clever blend of psychological thrills and stalked-by-monster terror is what makes writer-director Neil Marshall's sophomore effort a cut above most horror films. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2006
3/4 82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) Hood's film, with its bold, beautiful cinematography and hard-thumping kwaito music, brings us into a different world, and then helps us to understand it. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 21, 2006
2.5/4 74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) The scenes of camaraderie among the soldiers are moving, and despite its weaknesses, there is something in Noel that resonates, given our current political climate. ‐ Premiere Magazine

2.5/4 93% Super Size Me (2004) The film may not be definitive, but it should be a must-watch in every junior high health class. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 18, 2004
2.5/4 64% Starsky & Hutch (2004) Thanks to its able cast and better-than-expected writing, Starsky & Hutch ends up being a pretty fun ride. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 8, 2004
2/4 68% Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004) Tries hard, but the routine feels a little too familiar. It's like getting a trim when what you really need is a new style. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Feb 24, 2004
3/4 80% Miracle (2004) The puck-flying, stick-slapping, bodies-slamming-against-the-wall action couldn't be more intense ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Feb 10, 2004
1.5/4 19% Chasing Liberty (2004) Feels slapped together and unfocused. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jan 20, 2004
3/4 72% Girl With a Pearl Earring (2004) A fine adaptation that perfectly captures the novel's quiet moodiness. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Dec 16, 2003
2.5/4 65% My Life Without Me (2003) Polley's Ann is scrappy, honest, and warm, not someone to be pitied or doubted or chastened. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Oct 22, 2003
3.5 92% School of Rock (2003) Jack Black rocks in this funny, snarky celebration of music. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Oct 17, 2003
3/4 54% American Wedding (2003) American Wedding, in fact, is so tasteless, so fiendishly puerile that it's hilarious. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2003
2.5/4 63% Camp (2003) Camp may not be great cinema, but it's passionate and original enough to be special. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jul 24, 2003
3/4 70% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) Director Jonathan Mostow doesn't try to incorporate the high-wire special effects now in vogue, and T3's impressive gravity-bound set pieces seem refreshingly rooted in reality. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jul 2, 2003
3/4 50% The Heart of Me (2003) It's a credit to this luminous cast that their characters can behave in such despicable ways and still command one's sympathy. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2003
2.5/4 67% Manic (2003) The film's blurry camerawork, jumpy editing, and oversaturated hues are annoying and distracting. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 15, 2003
1.5/4 44% XX/XY (2003) If you're already familiar with the Mars-Venus school of thought, the film doesn't have much more to offer. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2003
3/4 77% Holes (2003) An intelligent, stylishly shot film that -- for the most part -- doesn't pander to its youthful audience. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2003
1.5/4 8% Kangaroo Jack (2003) Every lame, overdone Australia reference is tossed into the script ... and it also boasts a number of non-continent-specific clichés. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 4, 2003
2.5/4 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) Pokes fun at relationship stereotypes in a way that, while not exactly clever, is pretty amusing -- due in large part to the talented leads. ‐ Premiere Magazine
