Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
0.5/4 27% Beer League (2006) The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable. ‐ Newsday
Posted Sep 19, 2006
1.5/4 3% The Covenant (2006) The Covenant is just a copycat. ‐ Newsday
Posted Sep 13, 2006
2/4 50% Suicide Killers (2006) Rehov seeks answers, but there are none. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 25, 2006
2/4 43% Reinas (Queens) (2006) [A] frothy, occasionally charming romantic comedy. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 25, 2006
3.5/4 71% Invincible (2006) Unlike most 'feel-good' films in this genre, Invincible isn't blatantly manipulative, and works so well because it is, in fact, understated. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 24, 2006
0/4 4% Material Girls (2006) Madonna's anthem was only good-naturedly arrogant, but the SoCal twins, like the film's script, are arrogant, ghastly immature and offensive to any audience that isn't all of the above. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 18, 2006
2.5/4 65% Lunacy (2006) A bad dream leads to constant conscious nightmares in this wacky, surreal creepshow from over-the-edge Czech filmmaker Jan Svankmajer. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 12, 2006
1.5/4 74% Conversations With Other Women (2006) By fade out, the movie has run out of air: the quick, clever dialogue flattens out and it becomes contrived. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 12, 2006
0.5/4 37% Accepted (2006) More disconcerting is the idea put forward that self-indulgence is a substitute for structured education, or, more to the point, that it's a substitute for life. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 12, 2006
1/4 3% Zoom (2006) The director of Zoom is Peter Hewitt, who also directed Garfield. Nothing more to say about that. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 12, 2006
2.5/4 72% Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) A whole bunch of great racing footage would've ratcheted up Nights a notch or two -- see Cars for inspiration -- but even the track scenes are ... well, pedestrian. ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 3, 2006
1/4 85% The Descent (2006) The Descent doesn't need to exist: a script that goes beyond outlandish. Actors who'd flunk out of Make Believe 101. Blind creatures that see things. Did we mention continuity? ‐ Newsday
Posted Aug 3, 2006
3/4 63% The Ant Bully (2006) Luc's transformation from ant destructor to ant protector illustrates a lesson told many times before, but rarely with such down-to-earth charm. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jul 27, 2006
2.5/4 18% Shadowboxer (2005) Billed as film noir, but because it lacks any subtlety and accentuates gratuitous violence that is more in-your-face than it is implied, the movie is about as noir-ish as Rocky. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jul 21, 2006
2/4 74% Monster House (2006) When the fat lady finally sings -- the filmmakers turn up the volume and the visuals explode. It's these sensations, and not necessarily the content, that might overwhelm some youngsters. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jul 20, 2006
.5/4 22% The Oh in Ohio (2006) Eventually, the oh's becomes 'zzzzzz's.' ‐ Newsday
Posted Jul 13, 2006
2.5/4 82% Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (2006) Told in a breezy, fast-cut style, and backed by a boisterous soundtrack that ranges from Puccini to James Brown, Lifetime focuses on the players -- on the field and off -- that made the Cosmos such a super, if short-lived, team. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jul 6, 2006
0/4 52% Strangers with Candy (2005) Quickly, no taste leads to bad taste, and dumb leads to dumber. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jun 28, 2006
2/4 86% The Road To Guantanamo (2006) Reality and make-believe get more than mixed: They get muddled. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jun 23, 2006
2.5/4 32% Click (2006) Walken is so adept and natural as Sandler's guiding light -- and his tormentor -- that he seems to be ad-libbing. It's an artful, endearing performance. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jun 22, 2006
1/4 60% Lower City (Cidade Baixa) (2006) The film is gritty and graphic, with 'artsy' takes where the camera holds on a motionless actor. But art it isn't. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jun 16, 2006
1/4 26% The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green (2006) There's so much ill-conceived fluff floating about the 'elusive true love' themes that by the finish, Ethan Green hasn't as much substance as a good Looney Tunes. ‐ Newsday
Posted Jun 16, 2006
2.5/4 86% Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul (2006) It's a tasty sonic apertif to an unfamiliar world, and likely to inspire more than a few folks to make a beeline for the world music browser at the music store. ‐ Newsday
