A Good Year (2006)

"Audiences will have to be content with the admittedly lovely Provence landscape and Ridley Scott's slick, superficial direction. Those searching for anything more will be sorely disappointed." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Crank (2006)

"There's a self-realization here that at its heart this is an absurd, even silly, movie, but rather than exploring that premise further, Chev is off again, inflicting gruesome violence on his enemies until the film's inevitable, sadly predictable end." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

John Tucker Must Die (2006)

"When we have savvy, smart TV shows like Veronica Mars, which perfectly and cleverly capture the angst and tribulations of high school life, there's absolutely no need for empty-headed, vapid movies like this." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Descent (2006)

"The Descent may be superior to other recent horror movies but it's all still just surface thrills." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

"Talladega Nights spins out early and never recovers." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Scoop (2006)

"Woody Allen's latest movie is further evidence of his inexorable descent into consistent mediocrity. Simply put, his films have become irrelevant, undistinguished and not terribly original." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006)

"My Super Ex-Girlfriend is watchable enough but it's humor for our age of diminished comedic expectations." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Shadowboxer (2005)

"It wants to break new ground but lacks the ability to think outside of the box." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Proposition (2005)

"When it comes to condemning the ancient Western code of violence, this film should practice what it preaches." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Seres queridos (2006)

Just My Luck (2006)

"You'd think a movie set in New York could at least boast some grit and panache, but Just My Luck is over-sanitized and cutesy. There's nothing serendipitous about this inauspicious concoction." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Benchwarmers (2006)

"Only the reliably funny Jon Lovitz delivers his lines with any aplomb, providing just a few laughs in this otherwise horrid movie." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Basic Instinct 2 (2006)

"It's left to David Thewlis as a know-it-all cynical cop to walk away with the whole film. He brings a mischievousness and wit to a movie sorely lacking in both and offers a fine example of what this sequel should have been." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Three Times (Zui hao de shi guang) (2005)

"Like all of Hou's films, Three Times is beautifully shot -- a painting come to life. And like most of his movies, it's utterly compelling." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Silent Hill (2006)

"Absolutely atrocious, Silent Hill is probably the worst movie ever to be based on a video game." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Sentinel (2006)

Look Both Ways (2006)

"A well-rounded, funny and appealingly quirky drama." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Syrian Bride (2005)

"Though too schematic and too intent on resolving all its prickly family issues, The Syrian Bride nonetheless packs an emotional punch." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Ultraviolet (2006)

"This is disposable cinema, to be wiped clean from the mind as soon it's over and mercifully forgotten." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (2006)

Forgiving Dr. Mengele (2006)

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (2006)

"Sophie Scholl: The Final Days wants to avoid the sentiment that is inherent in the details of her tragic demise, but in doing so, it's leeched the emotional power out of her life and death." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Why We Fight (2006)

"... Why We Fight is neither fair nor convincing." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Libertine (2006)

"A fine feature debut for director Laurence Dunmore, The Libertine is more of a calling card for his future work than a fully rounded triumph in its own right." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Private (2005)

"Rather than evincing some subtlety in its depiction of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the movie's Italian makers prefer to engage in melodrama and simplistic Israel-bashing." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Ringer (2005)

"The Ringer manages to avoid offending anyone -- the handicapped athletes are a savvy bunch -- but it also fails to provide any semblance of intelligence or wit." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005)

"Alternately wonky -- a late plot twist will leave you thinking a couple of the film's reels went missing -- and offensive as only an elegant depiction of brutal violence can be, Lady Vengeance is meretricious nonsense." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Go for Zucker! (Alles auf Zucker!) (2006)

"Ostensibly a comedy, Go For Zucker makes a heavy-handed hash of its overly contrived plot, which plays like a lame sitcom." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Stay (2005)

"The intent is to rivet the viewer's attention, but the movie is so relentless in imposing its deliberately dazzling technique that audiences are liable to be annoyed instead." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story (2005)

In Her Shoes (2005)

"In Her Shoes provides the perfect example of a talented director rising far above his material. But there's only so much that Curtis Hanson can do with the choppy, unfocused script." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Oliver Twist (2005)

The Notorious Bettie Page (2006)
