Year of the Dog (2007)

"With this film Mike White once again proves that he's got an eye for darkness and an ear for character that truly puts what passes for comedy in most films these days to shame." ‐IGN Movies

Jindabyne (2006)

"The filmmakers do not feel the need to fill in every single blank for viewers by the time the credits roll. Just as in reality, these characters' problems are not going to be solved with the wave of a magic wand; there are no short cuts to happiness." ‐IGN Movies

Blackout (2007)

"Hopes to attach some larger social significance to the event, but that unfortunately falls largely flat and suffers from a derivative and sometimes vapid script." ‐IGN Movies

Mulberry Street (2007)

"See, instead of existing in a vacuum like most horror flicks where nothing of real worth can ever seep in, Mulberry Street insists on embracing all those little lifelike details." ‐IGN Movies

This Is England (2007)

"As This Is England's coming-of-age story unfolds, and even as it careens towards an inevitably violent ending, Meadows manages to see beyond the potentially clichéd trappings of depicting the tired, the poor, the huddled masses, and presents us with very" ‐IGN Movies

Civic Duty (2006)

"Eventually it all boils down to cliché, with home invasions by Terry, physical confrontations between Terry and Gabe, a hostage situation, a main character getting gunned down, and all the other standard thriller tropes that might excite the kind of audie" ‐IGN Movies

Rise: Blood Hunter (2007)

"It's a blood-red affair thrown together in a dash, a little number that will ultimately get the same kind of treatment from audiences as it did from those who made it: something you might cue up in the DVD player on a whim and forget just as easily." ‐IGN Movies

A Dirty Carnival (2011)

"A circus of Shakespearean themes about the rise and fall of not just one man who tried to get ahead in life, but also how his successes and failures affected -- and afflicted -- all those around him." ‐IGN Movies

Descent (2007)

"One can't say that the film "devolves" into revenge fantasy in its final act, because that seems to be the whole intention of the filmmakers. But still, what the point is of such an unpleasant and prolonged exercise in hate -- as Descent's climax is -- is" ‐IGN Movies

Once (2007)

"Writer-director John Carney, a former musician himself, has constructed a simple story that runs deep with implied character history and motivation. Little of importance is much said in the film, though the soul of the characters is often gleaned through" ‐IGN Movies

Tideland (2006)

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

"It's a mutant smorgasbord, and most of the characters suffer as a result. 'We need more mutants in leather,' I can hear a studio exec yelling. 'And give them tattoos too! That way we know they're bad guys!'" Now Playing Magazine
