Don't bother with this movie. If you're just itching for more Dukes, stick to the original series on DVD.

1.5/4
A satisfying end, but it takes a lot of work -- and a lot of suspended disbelief -- to get there.

Cellular (2004)

3.5/4
An excellent documentary with much to say about the Mountain Meadows Massacre, the most important being that the lives of the victims were not the only casualties.

3.5/4
A thorough examination (and debunking) of the claims that have blurred the term 'historical fiction,' stirred a cauldron of controversy, and spurred record-breaking sales.

I was amazed at how little actually happens for a movie with so much action.

2.5/4
Its message of costly sacrifice and hard-won reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel, and the fact that this story is drawn from actual events demands attention.

Red Eye (2005)
Fans of the thriller genre will probably be scared and entertained, but seeing Red Eye is more like watching a good television show than a good movie.

The Pacifier (2005)
It's almost as if the writers got carried away with brainstorming all the funny things they could do with Vin Diesel's character.

This edition of Yard has a lighter feel than the original -- well, considering it's a movie about prison inmates.

Lacks creativity. The first Benji was original, and each new sequel needs to be a new creation. Instead, we get the same Benji formula.

Syriana (2005)
Interesting and worth watching, despite the fact that complete comprehension of the film seems just beyond the reach of the viewer.

Suspect Zero (2004)
Essentially an X-files episode that wishes it were as disturbing and visually arresting as David Fincher's Seven (it's not).

3.5/4
Underscores the need for individuals to take responsibility for their own health, and it does so in a frequently humorous and self-deprecating way. Plenty of food for thought.

2.5/4
As comedies go, it's actually fairly funny, albeit in a light, superficial way which either hides or exposes the fact that the plot is a thick tangle of mutual contradictions.

Stealth (2005)
Neither entertaining nor exciting, the dumb and noisy Stealth will hopefully live up to its name by fading quietly from movie theaters.

Stay (2005)
Ultimately the film delivers such a weak payoff that it makes nearly everything that came before it seem rather pointless.

It's back to the drawing board for the TV show's creators, who have previously proven themselves capable of much better than this soggy and waterlogged miscalculation.

Spanglish (2004)
While the content isn't always pretty, the lessons are important. And, Brooks, thankfully, isn't afraid to face these themes, ugliness and all.

The film is full of rumbling sounds that will make your innards tremble (at least in some theaters). But that's about all it has going for it.

Sky High (2005)
Sky High is adolescent, in the best, age-appropriate sense of the word; it's like a John Hughes movie, but for tweens.

3.5/4
Director Kerry Conran hasn't just mimicked his favorite serials and comic books. He's written a love letter to the full scope of 1930s and '40s films by basically making one.

Pretty much what you would expect from the screenwriter of disappointing films such as Scream 3, Reindeer Games and Arlington Road.

Four friends on a quest to find something, only to realize that anything resembling an answer is to be found in the journey itself, in their friendships, and in themselves.

Sin City (2005)
The world Miller and Rodriguez have created is so bleak and nasty it's difficult to see what lasting value any sort of redemption could have here.

Sideways (2004)

Shopgirl (2005)
Claire Danes has a gravitas and grace to her that hearkens back to starlets of the 1930s and '40s.

The 1996 original is classier, deeper, more poignant. A Ginger Rogers to this Beyoncé.

This is, in short, a mystery story that has very little actual mystery.
