Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 53% The Hunting Party (2007) a very poor man's Three Kings, minus the deft mixture of witty satire/raw emotion and solid chemistry amongst the three leads.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

3/5 No Score Yet Stalking Santa (2007) Remember Conspiracy Theory? Mel Gibson would've made a perfect Lloyd Darrow. Plus, you know he believes in Santa Claus.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
5/5 88% Superbad (2007) be sure to stick it out through the closing credits. You'll thank me later.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

5/5 97% The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007) You could say it's sort of like Murderball, only these guys' disabilities are of the social variety. At any rate, it's a great film‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

3/5 62% Dans Paris (2007) will induce a shortage in precious vacation days, stirring up visions of oneself mimicking the carefree Jonathan, gallivanting about Paris without a care in the world‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 No Score Yet Human Cost of War: Michael Franti: I Know I'm Not Alone (2005) a testament to the healing power of music‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

5/5 96% Ratatouille (2007) arguably the finest film in Pixar's distinguished canon‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

4/5 91% Sicko (2007) Prepare to laugh (nervously), cry and be outraged.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
2/5 No Score Yet Dog Bite Dog (2006) One can't help but brand the final 15 minutes of this film as one of the most glaring cases of self-sabotage since the twist-ending of M. Night Shyamalan's The Village.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 No Score Yet given the current pitiable state of American horror flicks, it's far more profound than say... Hostel II‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

3/5 57% Transformers (2007) If you take Transformers with a grain of salt...you'll have a pretty fun time checking out both the robotic (transformers) and human (Megan Fox) eye candy‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine

5/5 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) we feel Steidle's inner turmoil as he cries uncontrollably at the thought of the genocide he was powerless to prevent‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
5/5 79% A Mighty Heart (2007) When Mariane finds out about Daniel's death, she lets out a guttural scream; one that rivals Sean Penn's outburst in Mystic River in raw emotional defeat.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
3/5 70% Ocean's Thirteen (2007) Like a few dirty martinis, you won't remember much of it the next day, but it was pretty fun while it lasted.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
5/5 90% Knocked Up (2007) Knocked Up is an instant classic, and cements Apatow's status as the top comedic director in the business‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
2/5 45% Brooklyn Rules (2007) a fuzzy film sporting more bad Brooklyn accents and mob-movie cliches than Knockaround Guys which, all things considered, is hard to do.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 75% My Best Friend (2007) Leconte has crafted an at once thoughtful, engaging, lighthearted, and melancholic entertainment about loneliness and friendship‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 56% Charlie Bartlett (2007) If you give in to the charms of Charlie Bartlett, he will no doubt win you over. This is after all Anton Yelchin's show, and it's a doozie‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
2/5 No Score Yet Watching the Detectives (2007) It looks like it's back to doling out parking tickets and shotgunning booze for Mr. Soter, and I think Cillian's probably learned a valuable career lesson here as well.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
2/5 No Score Yet Blackout (2007) there are some terribly cliched threads, including C.J.'s as the doomed upwardly mobile kid from the block, and James as the tormented witness of 9/11‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
5/5 93% This Is England (2007) Stephen Graham delivers a bravura performance as the brooding, mesmerizing Combo, clearly channeling Russell Crowe in Romper Stomper.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
2/5 78% You Kill Me (2007) Kingsley seems to be sleepwalking through the entire movie, in a faux-understated performance‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 47% The Education of Charlie Banks (2009) a very solid first effort from Durst who, whether you like it or not, may just have a future in the director's chair.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
1/5 No Score Yet Matrimony (2007) Unfortunately, this Matrimony is almost as drawn out and tedious as an actual marriage.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
3/5 No Score Yet Brando (2007) a very informative, albeit unfocused documentary, with far too much time dedicated to Brando the actor, and far too little time dedicated to Brando the man‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 89% The Savages (2007) The Savages is a precious, pitch-perfect little film that finds humanity and mirth in the darkest of places.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
5/5 91% There Will Be Blood (2007) An exegesis of capitalism and the 'Horatio Alger myth,' as well as a captivating character study, There Will Be Blood is a near-masterpiece of epic proportion.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 66% The Kite Runner (2007) Afghani newcomer Ahmad Khan Mahmidzada's portrayal of the doting servant Hassan is an absolute revelation‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 86% Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) A Grand Guignol, with plot elements from Jacobean tragedy, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Jack the Ripper, it's the perfect mélange for the master of the macabre, Tim Burton.‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2007
4/5 82% Charlie Wilson's War (2007) Perhaps a better way to remember these two colorful characters ... is with a little gem by Gust: 'What brought us together was chasing pussy and killing communists.'‐ Manhattan Movie Magazine
