Posted May 26, 2006

3/4 84% Akeelah and the Bee (2006) "Akeelah and the Bee carefully diagrams every cliche we've absorbed from sports movies, urban dramas, mentor flicks and precocious-children portraits. Yet it works. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Mar 24, 2006
1.5/4 61% Find Me Guilty (2006) "Slow, repetitive, flat and altogether wrongheaded, using suspect editing of a true story to make us celebrate a bunch of vicious crooks. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Mar 17, 2006
2.5/4 43% She's the Man (2006) "She's the Man, modeled on that gender-bending Shakespeare masterpiece, is harmless fun for the 12-year-olds who should make up the core audience. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Mar 3, 2006
3/4 61% 39 Pounds of Love (2005) "It's not quite on the level of Enron, or even other disability-themed nominees such as Murderball. But with a subject like Ami Ankilewitz, nitpicking seems out of the question. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Feb 10, 2006
91% After Innocence (2005) "Each lost face in the documentary is a burning reminder of the human toll when our justice system succumbs to its imperfections. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Jan 13, 2006
3/4 55% Glory Road (2006) "While Bruckheimer and Co. stretch the gospel theme too far and leave no emotional waypoint unmarked, Glory Road largely works. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jan 13, 2006
1/4 44% Casanova (2005) "There's less sexiness in the awful Casanova than in the downbeat, doomed gay love story featuring Ledger in Brokeback Mountain. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jan 6, 2006
3/4 57% Breakfast on Pluto (2005) "Jordan is the kind of director you follow out of trust, even when his movies aren't perfect. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Dec 9, 2005
3/4 88% Touch The Sound (2004) "It will be frustrating if you expect narrative and linear development. But if you take it on as a new point of view, valuable even if you don't completely comprehend it yet, Touch the Sound is worth the trip. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Dec 2, 2005
2/4 46% The Ice Harvest (2005) "The Ice Harvest is too tepid to have much taste either way, and it ends up lulling us to apathy. " ‐ Denver Post
