The Lunchbox (2014)

"A romantic comedy based on the most trifling and sentimental of conceits, while deftly avoiding a descent into schmaltz." ‐Toronto Star
Posted Mar 20, 2014
0.5/4 23%

Need For Speed (2014)

"Need For Speed fails spectacularly on so many levels, it almost begs you to bring back the hyperactive, overacting Nicolas Cage for Drive Angry 2. Almost." ‐Toronto Star

Tabu (2012)

"The reward is a stunning photographic narrative - a love story told as sweeping parable. But to get there takes an investment by the viewer." ‐Toronto Star

The Haunting of Molly Hartley (2008)

"If you get past the retro Nancy Drew title, this is a worthwhile effort." ‐Toronto Star

Made in Jamaica (2006)

"A worthy look at a music born though turmoil with a vision that still resonates globally." ‐Toronto Star

Quarantine (2008)

"Quarantine is based on the 2007 Spanish thriller [REC]. Like any imitation, the quality's not as good, but this is about cheap thrills, of which there are not enough." ‐Toronto Star

Bangkok Dangerous (2008)

"Awatchable, but dull action flick with not enough body count to satisfy the average mixed martial arts fanboy." ‐Toronto Star

Greg and Gentillon (2006)

"The triumph of the largely improvised film is that the characters, with all their naive optimism, are surprisingly nuanced." ‐Toronto Star

Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)

"Bean seems to lament how some filmmakers have forgotten that film is foremost a medium of mass entertainment. The great sadness is that without uttering much of anything, is a few jokes short of making a very good point." ‐Toronto Star

Hot Rod (2007)

"Imagine a Stand by Me on wheels, with dialogue spoken by 20-something actors instead of 12-year-olds, and you have the essence of the script." ‐Toronto Star

Bratz: The Movie (2007)

"Bratz is a disappointment because the characters come off less as the girly superheroes they should be, and more as, well, brats." ‐Toronto Star

Captivity (2007)

"The real horror here is how anyone, especially a two-time Oscar nominated director, could be this hard up for work." ‐Toronto Star

The Motel (2005)

"Funny and real." ‐Toronto Star

Hoodwinked (2005)

"A warped, but mildly amusing twist on the childhood favourite." ‐Toronto Star

Hostel (2006)

"Roth doesn't know when to leave well enough alone. Piling the gore on without benefit of artful tension, the film ends up approaching parody." ‐Toronto Star

3.5/4 53%

Wolf Creek (2005)

"Australian writer and director McLean produces what is likely the most riveting horror movie you will see this year." ‐Toronto Star

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005)

"Sequels tend to be stupider by the dozen, and part two is perhaps overshadowed only by the banality and pointlessness of say, Leprechaun 6." ‐Toronto Star

In the Mix (2005)

"The failure is with a script as ungainly as it is and an oversimplified conception of American-Italian and black cultures." ‐Toronto Star

Cake (2003)

"Cake is under-baked and underwhelming." ‐Toronto Star

2/4 42%

Just Friends (2005)

"Just Friends is part Farrelly Brothers and part Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, all wrapped together to deliver gross-out gags in bizarrely random and rapid-fire fashion, with zero intent to develop sustainable plot or character." ‐Toronto Star

The Grace Lee Project (2005)

"A clever look at the weight of cultural expectations and the crisis of identity, told with poignant wit." ‐Toronto Star

Dodging the Clock (2005)

"Trogi's binding theme that males are cavemen at heart is woven throughout the movie. But it's a tired and unoriginal symbol." ‐Toronto Star
