1% Disaster Movie (2008) Disaster Movie is one doo-doo that can't be undid, homeskillet.‐ Georgia Straight

65% The Campaign (2012) Really stupid, funny things happen that'll make you laugh when you're thinking about them later, alone and scared in the world.‐ Georgia Straight

28% Project X (2012) We wonder how they and the movie can possibly pull off a party so deranged we'll totally wish we were there, taking our clothes off.‐ Georgia Straight

13% W.E. (2012) Considering that W.E.'s dialogue is self-conscious, frothy snippets rather than real conversation attached to real drama, Riseborough is rather excellent.‐ Georgia Straight

96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) This show, in all its surprisingly moving gravity and beauty, belongs to the three young actors at its centre who've held their own since it all began.‐ Georgia Straight

72% Disneynature African Cats (2011) The filmmakers play us fragile types by alternating "awww" moments of adorable cubs with menace that is, yes, sometimes deadly (generally off-screen).‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2011
91% Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) It's a deeply heart-busting story about finding self-realization.‐ Georgia Straight

39% The Eagle (2011) Luckily, director Kevin Macdonald quickly distracts with a little of the old ultraviolence when longhaired locals attack the fort and the Romans go into those cool fighting formations that are always so transfixing.‐ Georgia Straight

9% Season of the Witch (2011) Seriously, don't you always think that the powerful demon or witch or whatever could really just zap the humans immediately and go have lunch?‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2011
98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) Most magical is the funny, tender bond between the uncool teen and the wildly cool, beguiling black dragon, Toothless. News bulletin: we don't have to kill everything we're scared of! And we might just get the thrill ride of our geekiest dreams.‐ Georgia Straight

23% Sucker Punch (2011) The sucker punch is to our retinas, eardrums, and tiny, tender brain cells.‐ Georgia Straight

64% Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011) This surprisingly captivating documentary about the floppy-haired one just might convert the Biebz haters.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2011
9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) It spouts mush about being true to your friends and to yourself but admits you also need awesome clothes.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2010
64% The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) The fantastical, messy, noisy, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink result might be a tad crazy-making for some, but fans of Brazil, Time Bandits, and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen can step right up.‐ Georgia Straight

16% Max Payne (2008) Some of these slow-mo-shooter moments, however, veer toward parody.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2010
64% Brothers (2009) Brothers has painful things on the brain, but it's the intimate moments that hit deepest in a story that shifts between the war in Afghanistan and pent-up family angst back in the good old U.S. of A.‐ Georgia Straight

94% The Dark Knight (2008) With his sliced visage, enough knives to supply a steak-house chain, and makeup that makes Courtney Love's bad days look pretty, this Joker is the picture of pure evil.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
64% Duplicity (2009) A brain-bending, sleekly twisted puzzle.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
9% My Life in Ruins (2009) A less than Homeric odyssey.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
29% Vice (2008) A muddled, murky film by writer-director Raul Inglis that can't blame its consistent incomprehensibility on the rain.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
19% The Fourth Kind (2009) The eerie-jumpy bits simply don't pan out satisfyingly or convincingly.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
49% My Sister's Keeper (2009) Yes, unabashed weeper My Sister's Keeper has that Hollywood sheen -- but it's the unexpectedly piercing realness of this family's anguish that's going to get you. Just try to hold back the waterworks.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
26% The Legend of Zorro (2005) The two stars exert remarkable energy, but they're undermined by a convoluted story that doesn't really matter.‐ Georgia Straight
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2005
25% Mindhunters (2005) The best thing that can be said about losing 106 minutes to the brain-numbing Mindhunters is that you have a really stellar excuse to grab the nearest bottle of Finlandia afterwards to forget it all. You may need more than a twenty-sixer, though.‐ Georgia Straight
