3.5/5 72% American Hardcore (2006) ... an enjoyable if incomplete nostalgia trip. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 89% The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2006) The Devil and Daniel Johnston is an unflinching yet loving look at the outsider musician's life. It's also the most revealing look at genius and mental illness since Terry Zwigoff's 1994 documentary Crumb. - Arizona Republic EDIT

3/5 90% New York Doll (2005) As the credits roll, New York Doll transforms from a puff piece about an aging rock star into a moving rumination on a man's final grasp for redemption. - Arizona Republic EDIT

3/5 54% MirrorMask (2005) McKean's inexperience as a director trips the film. There is so much going on that the viewer can't take in all the imagery, and McKean's devotion to his skewed vision slows the story to a crawl. - Arizona Republic EDIT

1/5 7% Dirty Deeds (2005) Not so much a coherent story as a string of clichés. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 83% Serenity (2005) A good old-fashioned space opera. - Arizona Republic EDIT

2/5 27% Fantastic Four (2005) The radiation-altered members of the Fantastic Four don't show their humanity. Rather, the superpowered quartet is little more than a bland collection of four-color caricatures. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 60% Dust to Glory (2005) The race becomes a metaphor for life, in which finishing builds camaraderie and victory is not the ultimate goal. - Arizona Republic EDIT

3.5/5 89% Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (2004) An unflinching and often hilarious look at the humanity of these heavy-metal gods. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 87% Mayor of the Sunset Strip (2004) Power, control and fame are not the driving forces in [Bingenheimer's] life. He only wants to share the music he loves with as many people as possible. - Arizona Republic EDIT

3.5/5 78% Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) Fry up a peanut butter and 'nana sandwich, hop in your Cadillac and take one last ride with the King. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 81% Step Into Liquid (2003) The undisputed surf-film champion. - Arizona Republic EDIT

4/5 65% Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (Kaubôi Bibappu: Tengoku no Tobira) (2003) Even those unfamiliar with the good ship Bebop will enjoy the high-intensity action and witty dialogue. - Arizona Republic EDIT
