Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve (2013)

"Money For Nothing lacks the rush of Rush, but you still might find your pulse racing and your blood boiling by the film's end." ‐ Denver Post

Gangster Squad (2013)

"It might sound like a stretch, imagining Penn playing that intense, indiosyncratic a villain. But the lauded, veteran actor pulls a left hook, then a right, and after a wild bodyshot at the tail end of the film, you see the true mania behind his eyes." ‐ Denver Post

Not Fade Away (2012)

"This film could have been -- should have been, even -- something special. But it's not." ‐ Denver Post

This is 40 (2012)

"Apparently Apatow's penchant for if-it's-not-broke filmmaking isn't changing anytime soon. And it's a shame, because while This is 40 has plenty of laughs, it lacks decency and heart." ‐ Denver Post

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

"This meaningful film keeps the laughs, giddy anxiousness and warm butterflies from the trailer and sustains it all through two full hours of a love story." ‐ Denver Post

Hit & Run (2012)

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

"The disconnect between intention and final product is a head scratcher." ‐ Denver Post

American Reunion (2012)

"Yes, American Reunion is a juvenile outing. They steal jet skis and defecate in beer coolers. They cheat on their girlfriends and lie to their best friends. But what did you expect?" ‐ Denver Post

It Might Get Loud (2009)

"While that sounds like a fantasy for rock aficionados, the scenes lack dramatic tension or cinematic enlightenment. It just kind of happens, and then the all-star jam fades to black, leaving few remnants of the filmmakers' initial intentions." ‐ Denver Post

Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (2009)

"In a struggling music economy, the big screen can be big money -- for the right acts. And the Jonas Brothers are exactly that." ‐ Denver Post

Cadillac Records (2008)

"Etta's story will be better told in another film, surely." ‐ Denver Post

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (2004)

"It's great emotional fodder for old-school Metallica fans and smart, tugging drama for people unfamiliar with the band." ‐ Denver Post

Identity (2003)

"A film that is thiiiis close to nailing the whole suspense/thriller/ serial-killer genre." ‐ Denver Post

The Recruit (2003)

"The foreshadowing is a bit heavy-handed, but the writers and director largely manage the tension and mystery tactfully." ‐ Denver Post

Kangaroo Jack (2003)

"Little more than an exercise in pockmarked dialogue, lame stereotype riding and even worse pacing." ‐ Denver Post

Just Married (2003)

"Ditches the expected route and comes out surprisingly original and endearing." ‐ Denver Post
