Posted Oct 12, 2008

Posted Oct 12, 2008

Posted Oct 12, 2008

Posted Sep 5, 2008
B+ 64% Traitor (2008) "A film that aims to examine Islam in order to separate the true believers from those who have hijacked it for terrorism. (Sound boring? It's also a taut thriller.) " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Sep 5, 2008
B+ 41% The Longshots (2008) "It's rare to see a well-made movie that empowers young girls the way this one does. So who am I to complain about the plot being formulaic? " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Sep 5, 2008
A 83% Tropic Thunder (2008) "It's hilarious, and there are a lot of fun cameos and explosions. Did Stiller just steal comedy back from Apatow? " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Sep 5, 2008
A 72% Hallam Foe (Mister Foe) (2007) "A worthy addition to Holden Caulfield's coming-of-age subgenre of off-kilter teenage boys let loose in big cities. Bell and Myles give terrific performances. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Sep 5, 2008
D+ 55% Step Brothers (2008) "When a 23-year-old male Anchorman fan would rather see a romance with Jenkins and Steenburgen than an R-rated comedy with Ferrell, you know something went horrible wrong. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 28, 2008
A 94% The Dark Knight (2008) "Squaring off the best-ever Batman and the best-ever Joker would've been enough, but director Nolan sticks them inside an ensemble crime saga that should make Scorsese proud. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 16, 2008
A- 96% Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (2008) "The unique point of view -- from a guy who used to take steroids and has two brothers who still do -- is the reason to see this. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
B+ 87% Kung Fu Panda (2008) "A collision of Black's signature humor with a succession of surprisingly awesome fight scenes. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
B 38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) "There are a handful of legitimately funny jokes, even though -- though it frightens me to say so -- I don't get as excited as I got when I was fifteen. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
B 67% The Incredible Hulk (2008) "I'm still not too enthusiastic about the character, but the film is fast-paced, well-acted, and captures that elusive 'comic book feel.' " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
C- 17% The Happening (2008) "Usually Shyamalan can hide his limitations as a screenwriter behind his skill as a director. Here, that skill fails him as well, and the whole movie falls apart. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
C 14% The Love Guru (2008) "Myers has a borderline-pathological need to mock Verne Troyer's height. It stops being funny quickly. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
B- 51% Get Smart (2008) "Even if you've never watched the TV show in your life, you'll have the nagging feeling that you've seen it all before. " ‐ The Cinema Source
Posted Jul 1, 2008
B 72% Wanted (2008) "It's fun, but it's sillier than The Love Guru. " ‐ The Cinema Source
