Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 10% Hell Ride (2008) On paper, this is the formula for a movie that could be fantastic, amusing, or at least a breezy way to kill 90 minutes. In execution, it is brain poison: it is not only bad but actively hostile. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 7, 2008
3/5 38% Swing Vote (2008) This one should have been called "Mr. Smith goes to New Mexico". ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 3, 2008
3/5 65% The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008) This estrogen-filled alternative isn't as good as the first, but is saved by its lovely young cast. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Aug 3, 2008
1.5/5 12% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) Possessing none of the hokey charm of the first movie, nor the hilarious insanity of the second, Tomb is simply inept and uninteresting. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 31, 2008
3/5 31% The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2) (2008) It broods when it should be snarling, and lacks any of the terror or sense of wonder that made the original show so compelling. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 24, 2008
1.5/5 55% Step Brothers (2008) incoherent and forced, as if someone stretched out a short film without asking if it was worthy. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 22, 2008
4.5/5 68% Pineapple Express (2008) the action movie-equivalent of Superbad, and just as funny, if not more so. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 20, 2008
4.5/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) It is maybe the finest film of the year so far. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 15, 2008
4/5 54% Mamma Mia! (2008) "Money, Money, Money" is more than just the title to an ABBA song. It's also what Mamma Mia is going to make. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 14, 2008
2.5/5 34% Space Chimps (2008) hardly groundbreaking animation - but it's a mildly entertaining summer diversion for the younger monkeys in your bunch. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 13, 2008
3.5/5 61% Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) Too bad the movie seats didn't have seatbelts attached %u2013 it would have been the perfect time to strap 'em on. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 11, 2008
3.5/5 85% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) bigger, longer, louder, more complex, and decidedly show-off-ier than its predecessor and, while entertaining, can't help but call to mind yet another oft-told clich%uFFFD, "just because you can do something doesn't mean you should." ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jul 9, 2008
2/5 41% Hancock (2008) Will Smith crashes the July 4th party again, this time with a thud ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 26, 2008
4/5 96% WALL-E (2008) Pixar's unbroken streak, and may be their best and most daring film yet. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 26, 2008
4/5 72% Wanted (2008) a super-adrenaline rush, a breathtakingly superb non-stop action-packed thriller. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 23, 2008
3.5/5 79% Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008) It is truly a family film; the kind of live action flicks that Disney made all the time so many years ago. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 19, 2008
4/5 51% Get Smart (2008) While this is not a perfect film, it drags on a bit too long at nearly two hours; it is a very entertaining flick. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 19, 2008
2.5/5 18% The Happening (2008) Director M. Night Shyamalan's new thriller is hardly thrilling at all. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 13, 2008
4/5 67% The Incredible Hulk (2008) The Hulk is back and better than ever. Forget what you've seen before. This is what you've been waiting for. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Jun 7, 2008
2/5 38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) Sandler's at it again, this time as an Israeli assassin. Crude, tasteless, unfunny. The usual. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 30, 2008
3.5/5 49% Sex and the City (2008) At 2 hours and 20 minutes, this is way too much Sex for anyone. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 29, 2008
2.5/5 45% The Strangers (2008) A genuinely dread-inducing beginning quickly gives way to a very conventional home-invasion slasher movie. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 29, 2008
3/5 85% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) more fun than a break-up should be, just not as memorable. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 1, 2008
3/5 14% Deception (2008) Anytime I can spend two hours in my hometown without having to pay for a ticket on American Airlines, I'm one happy gal. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 1, 2008
3.5/5 53% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) Harold and Kumar return, and miraculously, the sequel is just as funny as the original. ‐ Hero Realm
Posted May 1, 2008
3/5 24% The Life Before Her Eyes (2007) Seeing is not always believing. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 1, 2008
3/5 64% Baby Mama (2008) cute, giggly and funny ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 1, 2008
4.0/5 94% Iron Man (2008) exhilirating, funny, involving, and just plain entertaining as hell. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted May 1, 2008
3.5/5 83% The Year My Parents Went on Vacation (O Ano em Que Meus Pais Saíram de Férias) (2006) The bittersweet coming-of-age story will resonate with just about everyone as the curtain is pulled back on a segment of a tumultuous era in Brazilian history when Pelé was king and young boys dreamed of scoring winning goals. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 10, 2008
3.5/5 49% Smart People (2008) recommended for anyone who enjoys smart performances, witty dialogue and its message that a dysfunctional family is still family. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 10, 2008
2/5 36% Street Kings (2008) what used to feel like a dark revelation now only comes off as an exercise in setting the odds against corrupt characters and watching them crumble. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 10, 2008
1.5/5 48% The Ruins (2008) No The Ruins is not about Britney's career, but a killer plant. At least Britney is entertaining to watch. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 4, 2008
2.5/5 53% Leatherheads (2008) Leatherheads calls many plays, still comes up short of a great movie. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 3, 2008
3.5/5 87% Shine a Light (2008) Scorsese's concert film of the Rolling Stones performing in New York City is intimate, bombastic, and entertaining as hell. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Apr 3, 2008
3.5/5 19% Chapter 27 (2007) Fans of Lennon and people curious about Chapman will enjoy this but if you have no interest in the subject matter, there is a high potential for boredom. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 30, 2008
1.5/5 36% 21 (2008) a nice rental but is a bit of a chore to sit through in a dark theater. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 28, 2008
1.5/5 14% Day of the Dead (2008) Calling Day of the Dead a remake of the original George Romero film is like saying fish tastes like pork. Sure they're animals but that's about the end of the comparison. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 28, 2008
1/5 7% Shutter (2008) Dull and flat, Shutter is Ring-y, Grudg-y and utterly boring ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 21, 2008
2/5 25% Drillbit Taylor (2008) Judd Apatow-style is repurposed to aim squarely at teenage boys, but loses a lot in the translation. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 20, 2008
2/5 48% Run Fatboy Run (2007) Simon Pegg shouldn't make movie that doesn't involve either Nick Frost or Edgar Wright. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 18, 2008
2.5/5 50% Doomsday (2008) Where Escape from New York and the Mad Max films are dark and give a pretty brutal look at the future, Doomsday takes the theme to a new level of bleakness, depravity, and gore. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 14, 2008
4/5 77% Paranoid Park (2007) The film will be remember as one of his best and shows that Van Sant is a director that is still traveling the road less traveled. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 13, 2008
3/5 76% Nightwatching (2007) If you've always found Greenaway to be an overindulgent, pretentious director, your opinion will not change. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 13, 2008
2/5 22% Never Back Down (2008) sporadically fun, but mostly a beatdown ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 12, 2008
3/5 52% Funny Games (2008) move over Carpenter, Craven and Romero, Haneke is here and you better hope he's not playing games. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 12, 2008
3.5/5 79% Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! (2008) should be a solid hit, with many of Dr. Seuss's relevant messages of respecting others opinions strongly reinforced throughout, down to a predictably fun climax ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 10, 2008
2.5/5 8% 10,000 B.C. (2008) will please many in the ADD MTV set, satisfying them until the next big CG adventure drops ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 6, 2008
2/5 55% Romulus, My Father (2008) However poignant the moments were between father and son, it was still not enough to rescue the film ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 2, 2008
3/5 42% The Other Boleyn Girl (2008) as the story of the most extreme example of sibling rivalry on record unfolds, the tale of loyalty and sister bonding comes shining through, although with a hefty dose of tragic consequences. ‐ Pop Syndicate
Posted Mar 2, 2008
2/5 47% My Blueberry Nights (2007) a beautiful film but lingers too long on mundane moments and shallow characterization ‐ Pop Syndicate
