Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

"For every smart dig the film gets in at sexism, it digs its own grave as a comedy. We can't pick a side when both sides have good intentions. " ‐Georgia Straight

Ratchet & Clank (2016)

"Young gamers might not mind all the competing colours and sounds, but their parents might need a stiff drink in a dark room afterwards." ‐Georgia Straight

No Escape (2015)

"It's the anti-Mission: Impossible, and for a while it's really gripping and refreshing." ‐Georgia Straight

Eve and the Fire Horse (2006)

"While the Catholic lore in this film may be wonky, the relationship between the young Chinese-Canadian sisters who try on Catholicism in a bid to safeguard their family is bang-on." eye WEEKLY

Far Side of the Moon (2005)

"Lepage's adaptation of his own stage play distills his typically grandiose ideas and visual quirks into a masterfully cohesive and entertaining film." eye WEEKLY

The Middle of the World (O Caminho das Nuvens) (2004)

"Not one character seems like a fully realized human being, let alone a likeable one." eye WEEKLY

Welcome to Mooseport (2004)

"The script is so weak, so illogical, so bereft of actual humour that it takes the considerable charm of the cast merely to prop it up." eye WEEKLY

Osama (2004)

"Wears you out in a way that would be considered heartless and manipulative if it weren't also (mostly) true." eye WEEKLY

Secret Window (2004)

"Good thing the people serving this utilitarian story have the wit to dress it up a little and make it dance." eye WEEKLY

Starsky & Hutch (2004)

"If you like Stiller and Wilson, you'll find enough to like about this film. If you don't, you can always just gawk at that awesome car." eye WEEKLY

One From the Heart (1982)

"It's even worse now, when its perms and polyester mark it as dated as its sexual politics." eye WEEKLY

House of Sand and Fog (2003)

"It falls apart in the third act when plot decays into melodrama." eye WEEKLY

Something's Gotta Give (2003)

"Despite the flawed premise and sitcomish plot, this film has an undeniable charm." eye WEEKLY

The Singing Detective (2003)

"A flawed yet mesmerizing adaptation of the 1986 BBC mini-series." eye WEEKLY

3.5/5 34%

In the Cut (2003)

"It's an experiment that's only partially successful. As a character study, In the Cut is sublime; as a murder mystery, however, the film is slightly ridiculous." eye WEEKLY

Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)

"The only real depth here is in Lane's ability to convey lingering heartache despite having little call to do so from the script." eye WEEKLY

1.5/5 77%

Peter Pan (2003)

"Hogan's adapation is likely faithful to a fault: it goes through the motions of the story without seeming to have any reason for telling it." eye WEEKLY

Elf (2003)

The Secret Lives of Dentists (2003)

"One of those quietly brilliant indies, so small in scope that it takes a little extra attention to appreciate how deeply it plunges into its characters." eye WEEKLY

Pieces of April (2003)

"Skips along, propelled by sharp humour and performances." eye WEEKLY

Go Further (2004)

"Harrelson's environmental truths are taken as self-evident, and his private life off-limits, which makes for a doc that's neither educational nor especially compelling." eye WEEKLY

Mayor of the Sunset Strip (2004)

"There's more wit, insight and pathos in this doc than Bingenheimer perhaps deserves, but he's a fascinating touchstone in this crazy celebrity culture nonetheless." eye WEEKLY

Der Tunnel (The Tunnel) (2001)

"Though its story is universal enough to leap across cultural boundaries, it's not deep enough to justify the leap to the big screen." eye WEEKLY

Remember Me, My Love (2004)

"This superficial storyline borders on being a public menace, but Muccino casts well (Monica Belluci is the other woman) and his scenes crackle with melodramatic zest." eye WEEKLY

The Cooler (2003)

"First-time director Wayne Kramer makes the odd choice of taking this premise seriously, which forces the actors to work overtime selling hackneyed plot twists." eye WEEKLY

Casa de los Babys (2003)

"Sayles's latest clash between over- and underprivileged cultures focuses solely on the issue of motherhood, but within this one issue he explores the widest range of emotions." eye WEEKLY

Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2004)

The Station Agent (2003)

"High-concept elements can't obscure how tired the surrogate family storyline is." eye WEEKLY

Alexandra's Project (2003)

"This low-budget Australian film is pitched as a psycho-sexual thriller but it's not thrilling at all: it's just cold, hateful and cheap." eye WEEKLY

The Snow Walker (2003)

Camp (2003)

"Every other character in Camp starts, ends and prances around in the middle as a teen-movie cliché of the worst kind: the well-meaning one." eye WEEKLY

Masked and Anonymous (2003)

"An exercise in celebrity self-worship so stiff and impenetrable it could only come from the warped mind of Bob Dylan in his dotage." eye WEEKLY

Confidence (2003)

"Not quite as clever as it thinks it is, but it's still too clever for its own good." eye WEEKLY

The Shape Of Things (2002)

"At least tries to push buttons, but the conversations you'll hear after the film will likely be more thought-provoking than the ones in it." eye WEEKLY

Finding Nemo (2003)

"Crafted with such care that the story, characters and colours positively pulsate." eye WEEKLY

Risk/Reward (2004)

"The doc is redeemed by Louise, who was abandoned in a phone booth when she was two days old, worked her way up the stock market after high school and now is stepping back from her own company to have a baby with her long-time girlfriend." eye WEEKLY

Alex & Emma (2003)

"With its awkward blend of postmodern literary debate and formulaic romantic comedy, Alex and Emma has the unfortunate distinction of being too intellectual for stupid people and too stupid for intellectual people." eye WEEKLY

House of Fools (2003)

"War is insane. Insane people are cute. Bryan Adams is God. There, now that you've got these three principles down, you don't need to see House of Fools." eye WEEKLY
