Movie Reviews Only

Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Role Models (2008)

"You can probably figure out how this is all going to end, but it still has more laughs than you might think." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Nov 7, 2008

Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)

"Everyone on screen seems to be having so much fun." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 31, 2008

Filth and Wisdom (2008)

"Madonna fans will probably want to go anyway -- hey, I can't stop you -- but I can tell you that the movie delivers on neither of the promises of its title." ‐ Washington Post

Sex Drive (2008)

"Formulaic doesn't necessarily mean lifeless, and Sean Anders, who directs (and co-wrote the script), hits a number of bits just right." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 17, 2008

Call + Response (2008)

"It's a documentary with its heart and its outrage in the right place." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 9, 2008

City of Ember (2008)

"It's not an entirely convincing trip, but it is the sort of satisfying movie you wished they would make more often." ‐ Washington Post

A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (2008)

"A Thousand Years is imbued with these melancholy images, but it may leave you longing for a story to make you care." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 3, 2008

Blindness (2008)

"It's a beautiful car that never quite cranks up. The book is deep allegory, lost in time and place, describing a suffocating little world. It's hard to get at that in cinematic form." ‐ Washington Post

Religulous (2008)

"One of the rules of satire is that you can't mock things you don't understand, and Religulous starts developing fault lines when it becomes clear that Maher's view of religious faith is based on a sophomoric reading of the Scriptures." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 3, 2008

Eagle Eye (2008)

"Eagle Eye, with a more nuanced idea of paranoia and the ills of technology gone wild, could have been both entertaining and disturbing. Deafening isn't quite the same thing." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 26, 2008

Towelhead (2007)

"It's clever and original with an excellent cast. Ball's script catches a lot of the novel's pop, often word for word." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 18, 2008

The Family That Preys (2008)

"By far the best thing about the enterprise is Woodard. If she's not in this thing, I think it goes kaput." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 15, 2008

Surfer, Dude (2008)

"You can stick around for the only funny line, which involves a breakfast burrito, but the smart surfer would head for the hills and Willie's goat ranch." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 12, 2008

Righteous Kill (2008)

"It's astonishing how much intensity and focus these two have lost, but the picture itself is not all that bad -- if you can get the collapsing-career thing out of your head." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 12, 2008

Burn After Reading (2008)

"The high-octane cast works hard. But there's nothing to suggest anybody off camera tried that hard, which is fatal to a Coen outing." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 11, 2008

Angels in the Dust (2007)

"A moving, stunning example of unadorned filmmaking." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 11, 2007

Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till (2005)

"You leave the theater feeling moved by a mother's courage, sickened by the crime and a little frustrated, wondering if this unquiet moment in our history will ever rest easy." ‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 14, 2005

Moolaadé (2004)

"For those interested in Africa as it is -- and not how Hollywood so often has it -- Sembene provides lasting insights into village life." ‐ Washington Post
