Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 73% Twelve and Holding (2006) "An intriguing -- if not indelible -- portrait of the difficulty of being not just an adolescent, but the parent of one." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 15, 2006
2.5/4 40% Nacho Libre (2006) "Nacho Libre, with its relatively (and refreshingly) tame PG rating, is likely to thrill boys under 13. But it may also evoke laughs even if you're far removed from that demographic." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 15, 2006
2.5/4 35% The Lake House (2006) "This could all be a miserable mess, but it works, somehow." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 15, 2006
3/4 81% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) "If one were to bring the sprawling program, which practically formulates nostalgia as a tangible commodity, to a movie screen, one couldn't hope for a better director than Robert Altman." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 8, 2006
3/4 93% An Inconvenient Truth (2006) "To Gore's credit, he is using this film to promote something other than himself (although, granted, that is a nifty side effect). He does seem to truly care about the world in which we live." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 8, 2006
2.5/4 33% The Break-Up (2006) "What's strange about The Break-Up is that, despite the alleged deep love between Gary and Brooke, you never get the sense that much is at stake." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 1, 2006
2.5/4 56% The Notorious Bettie Page (2006) "It's sort of baffling that The Notorious Bettie Page turns out to be almost boring -- especially when you consider the talent involved." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 25, 2006
3/4 52% Down in the Valley (2006) "Both a celebration of a time long past and an acknowledgement of the romanticized, whitewashed fantasies of that same past, especially when it's held up to the harsh light of today." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 25, 2006
2/4 58% X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) "It feels a lot like X-Men: The Diluted TV Adaptation." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 25, 2006
2.5/4 75% Over the Hedge (2006) "The script pokes endless fun at American overindulgence, from SUVs to obesity. But the shots are cheap not just because they're so obvious, but because you get the sense no one who made this movie believes any of it." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 18, 2006
1/4 25% The Da Vinci Code (2006) "The movie is woefully plotted and just flat-out, eye-crossingly dull." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 18, 2006
3/4 33% Poseidon (2006) "It's simply a monumental piece of pure entertainment -- too spectacularly frenetic to give you time to care much about any lapses in logic or plausibility." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 11, 2006
2/4 37% Keeping Up With The Steins (2006) "Well intentioned but sloppily rendered, and unlikely to satisfy anyone but a very narrow section of the marketplace." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 11, 2006
2.5/4 36% Art School Confidential (2006) "As much as you want to like him, by the end Jerome is just kind of a whiny twit. And as much as you might want to like the movie, it turns out to seem no more substantial than a rough sketch." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 11, 2006
3.5/4 86% L'Enfant (2006) "A searing work about a severely flawed person's heartbreaking stabs at redemption." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 11, 2006
2.5/4 70% Mission: Impossible III (2006) "Even though this is really nothing more than escapist, illogical amusement that doesn't really go anywhere, it is original." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 4, 2006
3/4 91% United 93 (2006) "... probably the best nearly unwatchable movie ever made." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 27, 2006
3/4 72% Friends With Money (2006) "The performances are uniformly excellent -- this is easily Aniston's best work -- but there is the unshakeable sense that Holofcener has spread herself too thin trying to tell too many stories." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 20, 2006
2/4 20% La mujer de mi hermano (2006) "La Mujer feels like a very attractively filmed, utterly banal TV melodrama." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 13, 2006
2.5/4 42% When Do We Eat? (2006) "When Do We Eat? takes place before, during and after a Passover Seder. But you don't have to be Jewish to savor this light and enjoyable comedy." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 6, 2006
3/4 86% Thank You for Smoking (2006) "Conveniently for Reitman, Buckley's satire has grown even more pointed in the years since its publication, as that culture has only flourished. Also conveniently for Reitman, early indications are that he's a solid director." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 6, 2006
3/4 51% Lucky Number Slevin (2006) "It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does slather it with some enticing new gloss. For the moment, that's quite enough." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 6, 2006
1/4 7% Basic Instinct 2 (2006) "The biggest problem with Basic Instinct 2 is that it's not the worst movie ever made. It's a shame; at least then, it would have some significance." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 30, 2006
3/4 87% Inside Man (2006) "This is a filmmaker who has something to say, and knows how to say it. As creative rebirths go, it's a lot more fun than you might expect." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 23, 2006
2/4 73% V for Vendetta (2006) "In a post-9-11 world, with the Patriot Act and battles raging over civil liberties, V for Vendetta absolutely resonates -- but it's an empty echo. The movie has nothing new or vital to impart." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 16, 2006
3/4 24% Failure to Launch (2006) "It's good. Not brilliant, not a future Oscar contender, but a perfectly sturdy, sweet, pleasingly non-formulaic production that should amuse a variety of age groups." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 9, 2006
3.5/4 92% Dave Chappelle's Block Party (2006) "Dave Chappelle's Block Party is easily the most fun I've had in a movie theater in months." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 2, 2006
3.5/4 85% The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2006) "A seriously promising directorial debut from an already great actor." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 23, 2006
3/4 79% Why We Fight (2006) "How you react to Why We Fight will be entirely subjective, much as with Fahrenheit 9/11. However, this is by far the superior film, if only from a technical standpoint." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 16, 2006
3/4 33% Imagine Me & You (2006) "Whether you can invest in the central conceit is iffy, but Parker gets a lot of mileage out of deftly managing the delicate balance of sweet and tart, sentimental and clever." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 9, 2006
2/4 19% Firewall (2006) "Firewall is a riveting suspense thriller, in the sense that after about an hour and a half of it you're still riveted by the suspense of what exactly is going on." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 9, 2006
3/4 68% Mrs. Henderson Presents (2006) "No actress has been as purely delightful to watch all year as Dench is tromping her way through this effervescent comedy, which falters only during its inevitably somber final act." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 2, 2006
2/4 74% Loggerheads (2005) "The movie could have benefited from a lighter touch ..." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 26, 2006
2.5/4 73% Nanny McPhee (2006) "Nanny McPhee may well delight kids -- if not eternally -- but their adult chaperones, hoping for pleasures of their own from the Thompson-Firth contingent, are bound to find it a bit lacking." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 26, 2006
2.5/4 77% Match Point (2005) "Match Point is what happens when a veteran director whom many considered far past his prime tries something superficially different." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 20, 2006
3.5/4 74% The Matador (2006) "The Matador is a superbly cast story that clearly marks Shepard as a filmmaker to watch." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 12, 2006
1.5/4 44% Casanova (2005) "Casanova is a forgettable, dopey enterprise, with what can already be declared the most wasted R rating of the year." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 5, 2006
2.5/4 35% Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) "In any case, if you judge Memoirs of a Geisha as a moving work of art, it's pretty fabulous." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 27, 2005
3.5/4 78% Munich (2005) "The rare action film that is as full of heart-rending dialogue as it is explosions and point-blank shootings." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 27, 2005
2/4 57% Breakfast on Pluto (2005) "By the time the movie finally creaks to a close, you may feel like it's taken a lifetime to learn about Kitten's." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 22, 2005
1/4 20% Rumor Has It (2005) "Rumor Has It is glossy, pretty and utterly forgettable, just like -- except for that last part, evidently -- Aniston's fabulous hair." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 22, 2005
3.5/4 53% Wolf Creek (2005) "A lo-fi masterpiece, an intense ride through your worst nightmares." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 22, 2005
4/4 87% Brokeback Mountain (2005) "If you haven't read the story before you see the movie, read it after. And then go see what is arguably the year's best movie." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 20, 2005
2.5/4 52% The Family Stone (2005) "It tries way too hard to give you the sense of familiarity - - like, you already know these people, they're your family, so why develop the characters? Except we don't, and they aren't." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 15, 2005
2.5/4 84% King Kong (2005) "There's a lot to be absorbed by your eyes, plenty of the sort of awesome visuals you'd expect. But, for a movie so painstakingly noisy, there simply isn't too much worth perking up your ears for." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 13, 2005
2/4 72% Syriana (2005) "The problem with Syriana is not that it lacks good elements, but that it has no idea how them shape them into a comprehensible story." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 8, 2005
3.5/4 76% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (2005) "It achieves an overall epic sweep most movies don't even dare to attempt." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 8, 2005
3/4 46% The Ice Harvest (2005) "[T]he tired heist concept is considerably enlivened by excellent casting and behind-the-camera pedigree." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 28, 2005
2/4 46% Rent (2005) "Without the immediacy you get from live theater, you're always going to feel at arm's length listening to people sing simple bits of dialogue like 'I'm so mad I don't know what to do,' or, um, 'Hello.'" ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 22, 2005
3/4 82% Walk the Line (2005) "As a love story complete with beautifully heartrending moments and rollicking musical performances, Walk the Line is a lot closer to great than to mediocre." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 17, 2005
2/4 75% Nine Lives (2005) "These little stories (whose overlaps feel mostly like an afterthought) never really connect." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
