3.5/5 Starting Out in the Evening (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The more you watch this, the more interesting the characters become. EDIT

4/5 La vie en rose (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Edith Piaf has plenty of tragedy in her life, so the movie is dark and moody, but it's compelling and Marion Cotillard's performance is impossible to forget. EDIT

2.5/5 Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Love the play, but this film adaptation left a bad taste in my mouth. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2007
4.5/5 The Bucket List (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone One of the things on our 'list' for this year was seeing this movie. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2007
3.5/5 The Orphanage (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It creates a genuinely creepy mood and grabs you like a cold hand in the dark. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2007
3/5 There Will Be Blood (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The movie looks amazing, the oil business is interesting, and the period is brilliantly captured, but the story isn't as good as all that. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2007
3.5/5 The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone You can't go wrong with a family movie about a boy and his pet ... even if that pet goes from the size of a puppy to a full-blown sea monster in a matter of days. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2007
4/5 The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone There are some heartbreaking and gut-wrenching scenes, but they're balanced with beautiful moments and the fact that Jean-Do never loses his sense of humor. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
3.5/5 The Savages (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone In the end it's worth a look, but you might wish you had some of Wendy's happy pills that she ripped off from her father's dead girlfriend. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
3/5 Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone When they run out of clever ways to be funny, they fall back on their old standbys: crude, rude, nude, and lewd, which just shows that they didn't have enough material. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
4.5/5 P.S. I Love You (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone This is the kind of movie that was made for the female audience and we thank you. PS, take Kleenex. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
4/5 Charlie Wilson's War (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It's a smart political comedy that tackles a solemn situation, but doesn't forget that it's meant to entertain as well. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
3.5/5 The Valet (2006) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone There are a few extra plot threads that feel like parking spaces that don't quite fit, but the story is squeezed in anyway. I'd still check out the valet. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2007
3.5/5 Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone 'Should you stay or should you go' really is the ultimate question. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2007
3.5/5 Arranged (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone This is a beautiful little independent film with some really wonderful messages tucked into a tale of friendship, loyalty, duty, and tradition. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2007
3.5/5 The Kite Runner (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It may not pack the emotional punch that it could, but it's an interesting story that's worth a look. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2007
3.5/5 Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone I went into this movie with expectations that couldn't get much lower, but came out a fan of Alvin, Simon, and Theodore... and Dave, for making us care about them as much as he does. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2007
3.5/5 I Am Legend (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone If you like your science fiction with some popcorn-throwing moments, check out this post-apocalyptic story before someone spoils it for you. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2007
3/5 What Would Jesus Buy? (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone I really like the message the movie has to say... I just wish the whole package were good enough to recommend as a gift to give yourself instead of another hour and a half at the mall. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2007
3.5/5 Atonement (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone James McAvoy and Keira Knightley are intoxicating together. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2007
4.5/5 Juno (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Juno has smart teenagers, smart parents, and comedy all in the same movie. It doesn't happen often, so appreciate it while you've got the chance. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2007
2.5/5 The Golden Compass (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The Golden Compass can answer any question with the truth. (It's too bad they didn't ask it if this story would make a compelling movie.) EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2007
1/5 Margot at the Wedding (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone An endless parade of bickering and bitchiness that isn't at all enjoyable to watch. After suffering through this, I wished someone would have encouraged them to elope. EDIT
Posted Nov 28, 2007
3/5 Bella (2006) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It's more of a life story than a love story. It's also a story that would play just as well if you waited to see this on the small screen. EDIT
Posted Nov 28, 2007
4.5/5 My Best Friend (2006) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone This is a movie that sneaks up on you and grabs your heart before you know it. I would want to watch it with my best friend. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2007
3.5/5 Broken English (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone This isn't the best independent film we've seen starring Miss Posey, but she is the reason this one works. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3/5 Terror's Advocate (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone If you want to see a who's who in terror, just take a peek at this guy's client list. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
2.5/5 Dan in Real Life (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone In the movie world, these characters might have been interesting, but in real life, they were too one-dimensional to make you want them to find true love. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
4/5 Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone I went in with no expectations for this and found myself caught up in the wonder of the emporium and the magic people can create around them, just by believing they can. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3.5/5 The Mist (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It's not the next horror classic, but it is the next horror film that creates a scary tension that lasts for most of the movie. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3.5/5 Enchanted (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Charming. I wanted to sing all the way home and make some clothes out of my favorite curtains. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3.5/5 August Rush (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone I liked the movie, but I wanted to get caught up in it and swept away by the magic and it didn't quite make it over the rainbow. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3.5/5 Arranged Marriages (2006) Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2007
4.5/5 Lars and the Real Girl (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone What an original idea - and what a direction to take it. The movie captures the feeling of a small town while the story captures your heart. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2007
1.5/5 Redacted (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone There are enough real documentaries about Iraq without having to make one up. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2007
3.5/5 Beowulf (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It's a visual experience and maybe the best use of 3D-IMAX that we've seen. On a standard screen, it might not be as impressive. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2007
4.5/5 No Country for Old Men (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The tension of being around a psycho-killer like Anton keeps you on the edge of your seat, with the much-needed relief coming in the brand of humor that only the Coen brothers can deliver. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2007
4/5 My Kid Could Paint That (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Captivating story that just gets more intriguing as it goes along. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2007
1.5/5 P2 (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The movie never gets out of the basement either. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2007
3/5 Lions for Lambs (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone Not a lot of entertainment with this edification. It's thought-provoking, but so's CNN. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2007
3.5/5 ShowBusiness: The Road to Broadway (2005) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It whets your appetite for the stage; it certainly made me want to watch every one of these plays. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2007
3/5 Tears of the Black Tiger (2000) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone If the story were as captivating as the color palette, we'd all be crying tears for the Black Tiger. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2007
3.5/5 Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea (2004) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone The documentary is informative and entertaining and gives you both sides of the great debate. You may not want to take a vacation to the Salton Sea, but you'll enjoy the visit there. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2007
3.5/5 Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders (2006) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone When it comes to credit, it pays to be informed. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2007
4/5 The Italian (2005) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone It's a touching film about a little boy with the determination of a champ. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2007
2.5/5 Bee Movie (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone I got antsy in the bee movie. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2007
4/5 American Gangster (2007) Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone If a movie is going to be this long, it needs to really capture your attention and hold on... that isn't a problem here. EDIT
