94% Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006) It's a thriller. It's a love story. It's for adults. Don't miss Tell No One.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

81% Priceless (2006) As entertaining as the young lovers are, the most compelling character in Priceless is the widow Madeleine, played to sophisticated perfection by Anne-Christine Adam.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

41% Hancock (2008) [At first] Hancock is great fun, quirky and hilarious... Smith especially proves every minute why he's become the best in Hollywood. Then the movie takes an odd turn and goes into a whole other story, with different -- and deeper, I guess -- meanings.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

64% The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) Nothing quite like the entertainment value of bloodless mayhem.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

42% Death Race (2008) Death Race was so relentlessly sadistic, so grim, so basically without any redeeming human value that even a race fan like me ended up being turned off by the so-called "ultimate in auto carnage."‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

13% The Women (2008) Despite its good intentions and high hopes, The Women is not a good movie. It does, though, have plenty of nifty slices.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

64% August: Osage County (2013) I disliked this movie so much that, figuring I must have missed something, I went and saw the darn thing again -- it was even worse the second time.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

73% Big Eyes (2014) The movie is big and amusing, and the shots of streets full of pastel vintage automobiles are worth the price of admission. It's terrific holiday fare.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

71% Interstellar (2014) The enchantment of a Christopher Nolan film, the sheer majesty of it, if you will, is surrendering to it.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
95% Ida (2014) It's done in hard-focus black-and-white, with no tricky camera moves, no special effects; sort of "minimalist realism."‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

No Score Yet Oorlogsgeheimen (Secrets of War) (2014) The children are so believable you forget that you're watching a movie. You're right there with them in their changing world, hearing their heartbeats, imagining the nightmares looming over them.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

100% The Winding Stream (2015) You'll not leave the theater without feeling that you, too, are part of the great flow of American music.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

54% Dough (2016) English-Austrian director John Goldschmidt and his two writers have put together a tale that, while utterly predictable, is also simply delicious.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

67% The Danish Girl (2015) The film's extraordinary, detailed visual beauty will stay with you long after the movie is over.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

93% Hidden Figures (2017) It's a rousing, patriotic, feel-good picture, with terrific performances from Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monaé, and Octavia Spencer.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

87% Jackie (2016) A subtle, mesmerizing, mind-altering character study.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

97% Hell or High Water (2016) Hell or High Water is a modern crime tale, as mythic as any classic Western, filled with complex heroes, dangerous bank robberies, and breathtaking scenery.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

4/5 72% Eight Below (2006) This surprisingly impressive adventure tale from director Frank Marshall escaped being Disneyfied, meaning that the animals are heroic, wondrous and believable, but not cute.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
4.5/5 75% Over the Hedge (2006) Very cute. Lovable characters, wildly original slapstick routines, tearful heart tuggings, and most surprisingly, life-or-death dilemmas and environmental messages that will withstand repeated at-home viewings.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

4/5 20% Step Up (2006) There's gotta be something right about a movie when half the audience dances up the theater aisles when it's over.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

4/5 56% Glory Road (2006) If you're a basketball fan, you'll love it. If you're a parent looking for movie inspiration for your offspring, see it as a family outing. For everyone else, Glory Road is an accessible time capsule of American history.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

3/5 69% Curious George (2006) Curious George is one curiously mixed-bag movie.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

2/5 37% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) The movie var-rooms on, through its sequence of ear-splitting, knuckle-biting, artery-thumping yet eerily emotion-free races. Ho-hum.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
4/5 31% Stick It (2006) As a shameless medley of Flashdance, Rocky, Busby Berkeley routines and hip-hop videos, Stick It is a glorious, over-the-top girl-power fantasy. It's also a thrilling insider look at the obsessive world of elite gymnastics.‐ Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
91% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) The movie is so lush with detail that only a big screen can do it justice.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

95% 12 Years a Slave (2013) 12 Years a Slave is the most horrifying film you'll see all year. It's also one of the most beautiful.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

72% Enemy (2014) I liked Enemy a lot. I see so many movies each year, many of which are near-clones of previous movies, that it's a treat to see a movie with an unconventional take on things, even if it's disturbing.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

76% Noah (2014) In essence, the best thing about Noah, is not merely the excitement on the screen, but the many questions that keep multiplying when it's over. Do see Noah, and do see it on the big screen.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

13% Winter's Tale (2014) Winter's Tale is one of the movies where you just forget logic and allow the magic to happen.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

94% The Dark Knight (2008) A film is only as good as its villain. By that standard, The Dark Knight achieves true greatness.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

50% Then She Found Me (2007) In her feature film directorial debut, actress Helen Hunt delivers a solid, thoughtful drama marked by terrific performances from a perfectly cast circle of friends.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

50% Sex and the City (2008) Sex and the City isn't a movie per se. It's a cultural phenomenon. As a movie, it's only so-so. As an event-it's terrific.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) The high-handed premise doesn't always work in Zohan but you have to admire the chutzpah in trying it.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

78% Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) Except for one grossly offensive aspect -- done twice --Crystal Skull is everything Indy fans want. It's a big, noisy, entertaining escape from reality. It makes no sense whatsoever and who cares?‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
50% Get Smart (2008) There are a few laughs, but nothing memorable, no biting satire and no clever wit. Most disappointing, there's no real chemistry between the bumbling Maxwell Smart and beautiful Agent 99. A fizzle where there be sizzle.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

51% Nim's Island (2008) Particularly for young girls and their supportive parents, Nim's Island is an entertaining, empowering film -- don't miss it.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

93% Iron Man (2008) It's perhaps the most thrilling tribute to good old American ingenuity the movies have given us in ages.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
52% Leatherheads (2008) Is Leatherheads a retro screwball comedy? A patriotic tribute? A sliver of sports history? It's all those things and more. Alas, more is not necessarily better.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
77% Fury (2014) Led by Brad Pitt, all the actors turn in stunning performances: weary of war, numb from the pointlessness of it all, but feverishly alive.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
78% The Hero (2017) The Hero is a darned good movie, full of heart and dignity, a simple tale of reconciliation.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) If you channel your goofy 8th-grade self, you will love this film.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

84% Darkest Hour (2017) You'll leave the theater stunned -- not only by what the British accomplished in WWII, but also longing for leaders whose words touch the hearts of their citizens.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards' characters may not get slapped with an earth-based court sentence, but in this complex story, a morality play some call it, life itself metes out justice.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
51% Maleficent (2014) Angelina Jolie was beyond perfection -- she wasn't playing the role of the wronged fairy -- she was the fairy, raging in all her queenly grief and vengeful fury, and lovely in her otherworldly beauty.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

91% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the most fun I've had in a movie theatre in ages.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)

90% Calvary (2014) The movie is a tragedy with humor -- kind of like life. And, like life, it may be way-too-human for some audiences. I loved it. My companion did not.‐ Bold Life (Hendersonville, NC)
