1/5 0% The Undefeated (2011) The Undefeated says less about Sarah Palin than about the political and cultural environment that made her big screen beatification possible.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 18, 2011
3.5/5 81% Conan O'Brien Can't Stop (2011) Conan O'Brien is one of the funniest men to ever host a television program. It was his downfall.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2011
2.5/5 45% The Perfect Host (2011) As it unfolds, one dreams of Sidney Lumet's Deathtrap and wonders how David Mamet would have handled these two A-types as they jockey for supremacy in a closed environment.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 17, 2011
3/5 85% Make Believe (2011) Watching even the most tossed-off gag is worth whatever shortcomings Make Believe has.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 17, 2011
3/5 72% The People vs. George Lucas (2011) It catalogues and recalls events so vividly that it will become a communal experience for those with conflicted feelings about Luke, Han and those stupid, furry things from Episode VI.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 7, 2011
3/5 71% Dumbstruck (2011) Instead of shooting for real insight, the smoothly-edited doc maintains a pleasant course, as troubled artists continually navigate between compromise and concession. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 25, 2011
1/5 14% Cat Run (2011) A loud, ugly and terrible movie that doesn't skillfully juggle its various elements; it throws them violently at your face and calls it edge.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 4, 2011
3.5/5 85% Honey (2011) A gorgeously shot, deeply interior portrait of the artist as a young introvert.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2011
3/5 68% Rubber (2011) Pleasure is derived strictly from bearing witness to such devilish and well-executed nonsense.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2011
2/5 28% Elektra Luxx (2011) Gugino and the rest of the mostly female cast clearly savor the chance to strip and swear in a free-play environment, which is a nice way of saying the film is hopelessly flabby and lacks coherence.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 11, 2011
2/5 28% Take Me Home Tonight (2011) It's only sporadically amusing and it's certainly not original, unless the definition of original has been broadened to include copies of things that were original twenty-five years ago.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 3, 2011
2.5/5 49% Super (2011) Super is not wanting for good ideas; it's wanting for direction.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 23, 2011
2/5 54% Brotherhood (2011) Brotherhood moves fast, but it can't outrun its superficiality.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2011
3/5 77% Zero Bridge (2011) A winning example of modesty in front of the camera and intelligence behind it.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 18, 2011
2.5/5 43% Cracks (2011) Scott excels in maintaining a low, persistent hum of eroticism whose purpose is not titillation or camp.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 12, 2011
2/5 38% The Other Woman (2011) What happens when a film director falls for a novel crammed with Incredible Moments of Heartbreaking Emotion and turns it into a movie crammed with Incredible Moments of Heartbreaking Emotion‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 3, 2011
3/5 83% Lemmy (2011) For the most part, Olliver and Orshoski are smart enough to allow Lemmy's unique personality to come to them, as opposed to pushing a case for it.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 28, 2011
2/5 53% The Mechanic (2011) A mechanic seems like a thinking man's occupation. The Mechanic, though, barely has a thought in its head.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2011
2.5/5 24% The Dilemma (2011) Even though The Dilemma fails as a whole, there's enough ethical brain teasing and character-based conflict to warrant an unenthusiastic recommendation.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 12, 2011
3/5 60% Plastic Planet (2011) Boote's strong film will make you look at the floating plastic bag from American Beauty in a new, wholly suspicious way.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 8, 2011
3.5/5 84% The Time That Remains (2011) The formalism Suleiman employs here provides a unique emotional entry point into the Palestinian dilemma, one that uses static shot composition and humor to clarify and comment, not to generate cheap laughs.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 8, 2011
2/5 32% How Do You Know (2010) Witherspoon's charm...has been replaced with tentativeness, confusion and the exaggerated facial expressions of a sitcom comedienne. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 14, 2010
1.5/5 33% Meskada (2010) Completely inauthentic at almost every level.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 5, 2010
2.5/5 52% The Next Three Days (2010) To get anything out of this overlong, underwhelming nonsense, think of it as a blow against the wimpification of the American male.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 13, 2010
2.5/5 67% Jews And Baseball: An American Love Story (2010) (Prioritizes) statistics and on-field accomplishments over larger questions of religion, culture and community.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 8, 2010
3.5/5 71% The Magician (2010) Ray is a ratty little bugger with a corner pub smile that hides secrets you're safer not knowing but can't wait to discover. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 29, 2010
1.5/5 38% Eichmann (2010) Feels the burden of history so heavily that it's effectively smothered by it.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 29, 2010
2.5/5 40% Gerrymandering (2010) Works fine as civics instruction but it won't move the needle against this decidedly anti-democratic process.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2010
3/5 83% Rachel (2010) Bitton operates at a cool, investigatory remove that's not as objective as it looks ... nevertheless, it's a well structured, sometimes riveting piece of information gathering.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 10, 2010
2/5 71% Red (2010) Schwentke keeps things light: light on big laughs, light on unique action set pieces and light on any sense that these game but retired spies are too old for this crap. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 5, 2010
2.5/5 52% The Winning Season (2010) Rockwell charms us into giving the film the benefit of our many doubts. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 3, 2010
3/5 75% Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe (2010) A wild biographical ride that adds an unexpected psychological layer to the classic art versus commerce conundrum.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 27, 2010
3.5/5 97% A Film Unfinished (2010) Hersonski has done Holocaust scholarship a great favor. Just when we thought there were no new twists to the story of the Warsaw Ghetto comes this documentary: focused, sorrowful and revelatory.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 20, 2010
2.5/5 42% The Extra Man (2010) Filled with odd behavior and curious quirks. What it's not filled with are recognizable humans.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 6, 2010
3/5 60% Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel (2010) Hugh Hefner has earned the gift of a fawning, non-confrontational greatest hits package and that's exactly what he's received, even if it's not what we necessarily wanted.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2010
3/5 90% Winnebago Man (2010) A fun little addendum to a profanity-laden chapter in New Media history.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 9, 2010
2/5 18% Princess Ka'iulani (2010) Free of insight and depth, leaving us with little sense of the weight of her accomplishments.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 6, 2010
2/5 50% South of the Border (2010) Edging closer to boilerplate leftwing loon, Stone embarrasses himself by backing the wrong horse and then making a weak case for him.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2010
3/5 88% Harlan - Im Schatten von Jud Süss (Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Seuss) (2010) This open therapy session-slash-doc is a film festival and PBS-type item worth seeking out. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2010
2.5/5 80% Cyrus (2010) Cyrus is strong enough to free them from their tiny corner of deep-indie cinema. But today's films have so little interest in exploring character that it's worth lamenting when one of the last champions of character specificity undershoots the target. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2010
1.5/5 12% Jonah Hex (2010) Jonah Hex is not a good movie, but it's a great cautionary tale about what happens when a film loses its way.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2010
1/5 42% Burzynski: the Movie (2010) Burzynski may have credibility in the eyes of some, but the movie about him has no credibility, so no one will be receptive to its message. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 11, 2010
3.5/5 100% The Juche Idea (2008) Densely constructed and pretty damn brilliant.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 1, 2010
3/5 No Score Yet It's all quite renegade, in that self-aggrandizing, subcultural way. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 30, 2010
3/5 No Score Yet One Peace At A Time (2009) Pipkin liberally applies the dispiriting statistics, but he's not laying a guilt trip. His tone is positive and hopeful, elevating One Peace at a Time from other docs that try to motivate using alarmist rhetoric, smug sarcasm or scare tactics.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 23, 2010
2.5/5 50% Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger (2008) Appearances by Toni Collette and Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes should draw a few curious parents to what is, most of the time, a quirky and quite enjoyable coming of age saga. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 23, 2010
2.5/5 26% After.Life (2010) If someone needs to be convinced they're dead, Neeson should make the argument.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 9, 2010
3/5 89% Breath Made Visible: Anna Halprin (2010) A lovely experience. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 2, 2010
2/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) Utilizing pervasive social media and numerous promo screenings, the movie looks to open well. It's just too bad Pink and company declared open season on an embarrassing decade then armed themselves with a urine-filled squirt gun. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 25, 2010
3/5 60% Kimjongilia (2009) Heikin has gathered rare video shot in-country and riveting escapee stories to create a commendable upgrade to our limited fount of North Korean knowledge, which almost completely mitigates the doc's numerous problems. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
