Posted Oct 10, 2008
3/4 26% Eagle Eye (2008) "Eagle Eye skillfully taps into post-Sept. 11 paranoia -- a briskly paced thriller that blinks at times but mostly keeps its focus. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 25, 2008

Posted Sep 11, 2008
2/4 10% Hell Ride (2008) "Leaves little time for plot but plenty of scenes of biker gangs tooling down desert roads, with close-ups of exhaust pipes, handlebars and black leather jackets." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 8, 2008
1/4 20% Meet Dave (2008) "How bombs like Meet Dave get the green light in Hollywood is a mystery. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 11, 2008
1.5/4 6% Strength and Honour (2007) "In addition to having a lame script, Strength and Honor is saddled with characters that are not to be believed." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Posted Nov 16, 2007

Posted Nov 8, 2007
2/4 23% Levantando a p├ípa (2007) "Crusty characters, a bluegrass soundtrack and a dysfunctional family that could exist only in the minds of Hollywood screenwriters make this film more precious than real -- or funny. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 4, 2007
4/4 95% In the Shadow of the Moon (2007) "A fascinating, funny and moving documentary -- possibly the best screen exploration ever of the Apollo program. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 27, 2007
1.5/4 67% Shoot 'Em Up (2007) "As for a plot, the film is too busy piling up dead bodies to have much of one. And, with dialogue consisting almost entirely of movie poster tag lines, Shoot 'Em Up shoots blanks. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 7, 2007
2/4 29% Lucky You (2007) "It's when the movie veers away from the green felt that Lucky You slows interminably, and you're left wishing that the characters would just shuffle up and deal." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 4, 2007
4/4 90% America At A Crossroads: Operation Homecoming: Writing The Wartime Experience (2007) "They're stories of war that resonate with anyone who has ever been in a war zone, and they illustrate beautifully for those who have not seen battle, just what combat can do to a person's soul." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 3, 2007
1.5/4 32% The Ultimate Gift (2006) "The movie's heart is in the right place. It's just that the route it travels to get there is so dull and unsurprising that you just want the trip to be over with." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 9, 2007
3/4 70% Amazing Grace (2007) "The film ultimately tells a powerful and little-known historical tale. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 23, 2007
2.5/4 9% Norbit (2007) "An uneven comedy about a milquetoast named Norbit who marries Rasputia, a woman so large she'd start a fire if she wore corduroy pants. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 8, 2007
2.5/4 21% Arthur and the Invisibles (Arthur and the Minimoys) (2007) "It might have been just another humdrum children's film if not for Highmore, who brings the same charm he did in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland to this fun movie. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 12, 2007
1/4 16% Turistas (Paradise Lost) (2006) "Turistas has better production values than most Hollywood pretty-people-in-peril movies. But even beautiful scenery can't gussy up this flat film. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Nov 30, 2006
2/4 21% Man of the Year (2006) "Man of the Year is merely a Robin Williams stand-up routine wrapped in a limp script. " ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 12, 2006
2.5/4 32% The Black Dahlia (2006) "Not quite as good as the film made from another Ellroy novel, L.A. Confidential, The Black Dahlia is a stylish noir in the same vein, with rat-a-tat-tat hipster dialogue, tough guys, hoods, dirty cops, gangsters and molls." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 14, 2006
1.5/4 37% Scary Movie 4 (2006) "Scary Movie 4 piles on the gags rat-a-tat-tat style. Like clowns throwing cream pies, some hit their mark. Many miss." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 13, 2006
1.5/4 40% Running Scared (2006) "Tthe gimmicks can't hold up a weak, implausible plot that substitutes violence and gore for a smart story and believable characters." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 23, 2006
3/4 52% First Descent (2005) "First Descent might become tedious for anyone wondering what all the fuss is about. But for those who have felt the thrill of carving an "S" down the side of a mountain on a snowboard, this movie is cheaper than a lift ticket." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 2, 2005
1/4 21% Into the Blue (2005) "The only good acting is done by the sharks." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 30, 2005
2.5/4 13% Stealth (2005) "Stealth is a widescreen video game, except all the audience can do is watch instead of grabbing a joystick and playing along." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 28, 2005
2/4 60% Winter Solstice (2005) "A slice-of-life film that, while well-acted, isn't compelling enough to rise to a tale to which you'd want to give two hours of your undivided attention." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 6, 2005
3/4 96% Na Shan Na Ren Na Gou (2003) "Viewers who don't mind reading subtitles will be rewarded as they gradually get sucked in by the lush cinematography and a first-class, heartfelt story." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 28, 2005

Posted Apr 7, 2005
3/4 84% Der Tunnel (The Tunnel) (2001) "The film picks up steam as the tunnel nears completion -- thanks, in part, to a Hollywood film crew that pays for the rights to the tunnelers' story, providing them with the money to finish the project." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 7, 2005
2.5/4 35% Racing Stripes (2005) "An entertaining, sentimental film." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 13, 2005

Posted Aug 26, 2004

Posted Mar 5, 2004
2.5/4 74% Calendar Girls (2003) "A fun film that celebrates the pluck of a group of women who aren't afraid to bare all for a calendar that most likely hangs in the front of car repair shops and not in the back." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 2, 2004
2.5/4 10% Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003) "There are a few cinematic hairballs along the way, but most of the film is a great ride." ‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
