Posted Jun 1, 2012
1.5/5 36% One Day (2011) A disaster, a dour When Harry Meets Sally. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 26, 2011
2/5 62% Gun Hill Road (2011) Despite the characters and grittiness of milieu, the overall vibe is that of a soap operatic Afterschool Special. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2011
3/5 68% Good Neighbors (2011) Inspired pitch-black humor and a crackerjack ensemble. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2011
3/5 72% Sarah's Key (2011) [An] elegant if uneven adaptation of Tatiana De Rosnay's novel. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 22, 2011
3/5 21% Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011) Visually, the film is a treat with Richard Wong's cinematography equally evocative at capturing the pastoral beauty and slower rhythms of rural 19th century China and the urban splendor and bustle of today's Shanghai. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 19, 2011
3.5/5 82% Life, Above All (2011) Thoughtful [and] emotionally resonant. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 19, 2011
3/5 75% Green (2012) Takal has a gift for dialogue and for character, the latter especially strong when it comes to Genevieve. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 5, 2011
4.5/5 90% Attack the Block (2011) Attack the Block may emerge as one of the summer's sleepers. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2011
3.5/5 92% Take Shelter (2011) Shannon makes the man's dilemma plain and moving, and that gives Take Shelter a resonance that last long after the final fade out. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 10, 2011
3.5/5 79% Small Town Murder Songs (2011) A lawman seeking redemption can't seem to escape sin in Ed Gass-Donnelly's haunting, rural drama. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine

4.5/5 75% Stake Land (2011) Stake Land is the movie The Road should have been. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 6, 2011
3/5 79% Earthwork (2011) Ordal certainly picked the right moment of Herd's career to memorialize, because while the tale seems to follow a predictable path, it eventually veers off into a different direction. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 3, 2011
60% Water for Elephants (2011) The love triangle takes a familiar shape and the dialogue tends toward the banal. Rarely has running away to join the circus looked so dull. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 21, 2011
3/5 66% Insidious (2011) Wan strikes just the right notes of ever-building suspense as he establishes the trouble that befalls the Lamberts, but when Elise and her team enter the picture, Insidious goes off the rails. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2011
5/5 97% Queen Of The Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? (2011) While Queen of the Sun is filled with talking heads, this is no talking head documentary. Siegel uses various visual strategies to make his film more dynamic. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2011
4/5 95% Making the Boys (2010) It is hard to make a lively documentary out of talking heads, but Robey has done that as he puts the play into historical perspective. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 22, 2011
4/5 99% Bill Cunningham New York (2011) A warm, lively portrait of the artist. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 15, 2011
2.5/5 35% Battle: Los Angeles (2011) It presents an apocalyptic scenario that ought to be tense and horrifying but is instead unintentionally funny. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 11, 2011
3.5/5 74% The Human Resources Manager (2011) Israel's Oscar submission and Best Picture winner at the Israeli Academy Awards is an amiable but dark dramedy. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 5, 2011
4.5/5 87% Rango (2011) This reteaming of Depp with his Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski looks like a lock to emerge as the first genuine blockbuster of 2011. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 1, 2011
4/5 72% The Adjustment Bureau (2011) Nolfi makes a memorable directing debut in this sometimes silly, but also suspenseful and entertaining story. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 1, 2011
4.5/5 73% Heartbeats (2011) Remember the name Xavier Dolan. You're going to be hearing it a lot in the future. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 26, 2011
3/5 87% The Last Lions (2011) While the anthropomorphism Joubert employs to tell the lions' story may strike some as cloying, ultimately that doesn't distract from this tale of survival in an inhospitable environment. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 19, 2011
5/5 78% The Mill and the Cross (2011) An investigation into Pieter Bruegel the Elder's painting "The Way to Calvary," Majewski's film is a stunning piece of art in its own right. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 11, 2011
2.5/5 18% Just Go with It (2011) The positives have an edge over the negatives, but it probably doesn't matter either way. It is an Adam Sandler movie. It is a romantic comedy opening Valentine's Day weekend. It is going to be huge. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 10, 2011
4/5 80% I Saw the Devil (2011) Cinematographer Lee Mogae's elegant compositions alongside the beauty of the South Korean countryside at night, contrast with the horrific activities unfolding within the frame. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2011
3/5 64% Troubadours (2011) Troubadours is an amiable endeavor, if something of a puff piece. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 4, 2011
3.5/5 68% Our Idiot Brother (2011) A fine addition to the dysfunctional family comedy genre. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2011
5/5 94% Win Win (2011) A film with a big heart; it's an eccentric dramedy and a crowd pleaser. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2011
2/5 20% Gulliver's Travels (2010) A movie that ought to entice people to want to travel with Gulliver instead inveigles them to run from him. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2010
5/5 51% Brighton Rock (2011) With a cast that includes Helen Mirren and John Hurt and a well-told tale with equal appeal to Greene and suspense fans, the savvy distributor that picks this up will be in happy possession of a potential sleeper. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2010
4.5/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) There is suspense and action in this film, but there is also lots of room for emotion, and for the audience, a satisfying build up to next summer's grand finale. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 16, 2010
2.5/5 16% Skyline (2010) Perfect drive-in fare. Too bad there aren't more drive-ins. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 15, 2010
2.5/5 49% Love and Other Drugs (2010) Blends exuberant comedy with soppy romance that eventually sinks it. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 12, 2010
4/5 87% William S. Burroughs: A Man Within (2010) It's a persuasive documentary; one that ought to gain Burroughs some new converts if the film itself can find a wide enough audience. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 9, 2010
4.5/5 82% Four Lions (2010) Terrorism is a fact of modern life. There isn't a lot we can do about it, so we may as well laugh about it. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 9, 2010
4/5 72% Monsters (2010) This efficient, low-budget drama is geared toward the arthouse crowd, but genre buffs will want to get a look at its titular monsters. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 2, 2010
3/5 64% Jackass 3 (2010) The laughs are a little uneven and director Jeff Tremaine does not always take full advantage of the 3D technology, but the movie has enough going for it to satisfy Jackass' legions of fans and make some new ones. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 16, 2010
2.5/5 58% It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) The third time is charmless for writers/directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 8, 2010
1.5/5 22% Case 39 (2010) A mess of a horror movie that spent several years sitting on a shelf and should have remained there. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 2, 2010
4/5 85% Easy A (2010) This is a movie that is going to hang around in theaters for a while and seems destined to join the John Hughes' oeuvre in having a long, home video shelf life. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 17, 2010
4.5/5 71% Never Let Me Go (2010) It is a film that the author's fans and lovers of mature, measured storytelling will embrace. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2010
4/5 53% I'm Still Here (2010) As a character he is extreme, a grandiose wild man who manages to be irritating and ingratiating at the exact same time. It is a performance that is both absurd and committed and ranks among his best. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 8, 2010
4.5/5 73% Soul Kitchen (2010) This comedy offers plenty to savor for foodies and romcom fans alike. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 1, 2010
2.5/5 66% The American (2010) So threadbare, trite and predictable that not the star's formidable charisma nor the considerable talent of director Anton Corbijn can come close to erasing its deficiencies. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 1, 2010
4/5 53% Going the Distance (2010) Barrymore and Long are adorable together. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
