Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007)

"The songs (written by a slew of artists, including Reilly, Apatow, and Kasdan) are genuine, ridiculous, and often very funny." ‐Austin Chronicle

Enchanted (2007)

Fred Claus (2007)

King of California (2007)

"The story is simple, sometimes to a fault, and ultimately Cahill doesn't quite pull off all of the majesty that he attempts. But, I'm excited to see what he'll come up with next." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Final Season (2007)

"Kind of Hoosiers: Part 2. But the storytelling is so backassward that it's impossible to care about any of the characters or really engage in the movie whatsoever." ‐Austin Chronicle

A fost sau n-a fost?, (12:08 East of Bucharest) (2007)

Silk (2007)

"While the locations are stunning and the cinematography (by Alain Dostie) frequently pulls off compositions of breathtaking beauty, the flimsy emotional journey left me bored and frustrated -- never a good combination." ‐Austin Chronicle

Sydney White (2007)

"From the contrived romance to the hazy lavender eye make-up that Sydney sports in every scene, there's nothing real about this film." ‐Austin Chronicle

War (Rogue Assassin) (2007)

"First-time feature director Atwell clearly displays skills he picked up directing videos for Eminem and 50 Cent." ‐Austin Chronicle

Rocket Science (2007)

"Writer/director Blitz demonstrates just how intimately he absorbed the quirky teens and preteens of his prior film." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Simpsons Movie (2007)

"Maybe the movie is just reaching out for something that saw its heyday five (or even 10) years ago. But oh, what a heyday." ‐Austin Chronicle

Talk to Me (2007)

"Despite its earnest attempts at power drama, the joy of Talk to Me lies in the comedy and the wild performances." ‐Austin Chronicle

La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007)

"Ultimately, the film rests on [Cotillard's] performance. And there's no better homage to a woman who lived for every time she stepped onto stage." ‐Austin Chronicle

I'm Reed Fish (2007)

"Perhaps in more experienced hands, this self-reflection could achieve insight, but as director Adler's first feature and Fish's first produced screenplay, this mess was better left inside the writer's head." ‐Austin Chronicle

Once (2007)

"Once transcends even its own ambitions, becoming a complex meditation on relationships, Irish culture, and music." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Valet (2007)

The TV Set (2007)

"Yes, it's funny because it's true. But it's also sad for just the same reason." ‐Austin Chronicle

Meet the Robinsons (2007)

"The animation strives for 1950s sci-fi retro, but the result is that everyone looks like a plastic animé doll." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Namesake (2006)

"The Namesake delivers such a tactile presence that it's difficult not to leave feeling as if you've just struggled through a New York winter, attended an Indian wedding, and returned from a Calcutta holiday." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Ultimate Gift (2006)

"The result is a deep desire for those Hollywood execs to remember that Christian doesn't have to equal brain-dead." ‐Austin Chronicle

Wild Hogs (2007)

"A note to screenwriters everywhere regarding characters over 50 whose inability to use the Internet results in being trapped on a porn site (see Wild Hogs and Because I Said So among others): It's not funny; please stop doing it." ‐Austin Chronicle

Music and Lyrics (2007)

"I mean, who doesn't want some love and romance, especially if it's indulgent and totally unbelievable?" ‐Austin Chronicle

Because I Said So (2007)

"The plot is about as revelatory as a bad Hallmark card, and the lowest common denominator humor results in a moviegoing experience that's almost as appealing as having a conversation with my mother about orgasms." ‐Austin Chronicle

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

The Nativity Story (2006)

The War Tapes (2006)

"As raw and disturbing as it is wry and satirical, the resulting portrait is a powerfully unique film that goes beyond commenting on Operation Iraqi Freedom to become a provocative meditation on war itself." ‐Austin Chronicle

School for Scoundrels (2006)

"While it's not uncommon for Hollywood to completely defy the laws of probability, sometimes the absurdity of a misfire is so poignant as to demand attention." ‐Austin Chronicle

Haven (2006)

"Lacking purpose or thoughtful complexity, Flowers' film is an overly ambitious mess." ‐Austin Chronicle

Trust the Man (2006)

"A relationship dramedy wields little power without an emotional punch. And when the theatrical (literally) climax attempts bold emotionality, one can't help but wince." ‐Austin Chronicle

Beerfest (2006)

"When the movie ended, I needed a drink, but not for the reasons that the movie intended." ‐Austin Chronicle
