Posted Sep 23, 2010
C+ 72% The Last Exorcism (2010) "But producer Eli Roth's The Last Exorcism doesn't reconcile the real identity crisis: a script that can't stop making jokes, undermining the scary stuff with too many giggles and not enough shrieks. " ‐ E! Online
Posted Aug 26, 2010

Posted Mar 25, 2010
C 43% Brooklyn's Finest (2010) "The one shining bright spot is Snipes, who makes it clear that he still has it. As an old drug kingpin who's recently been paroled, the actor is menacing, weathered and charming as hell. His talent has been missed onscreen. " ‐ E! Online

Posted Dec 15, 2009
C- 26% Ninja Assassin (2009) "Sounds promising, yes? But this way-too-frantic noisefest cooked up by the Wachowski brothers turns out to be just a mess of choppy editing and bad CGI. " ‐ E! Online

Posted Nov 12, 2009
A 81% Michael Jackson's This Is It (2009) "No matter the format, even in low-res video you can't take your his eyes off him. He truly seems like a force of nature with every signature move -- and some new ones! " ‐ E! Online

Posted Sep 25, 2009
