"The problem with all this sneaking around is that it is rarely ever all that suspenseful."

In Her Shoes (2005)

"A Hollywood movie that feels real; one that engages the tear ducts and the mind."

"It's got a 'Father Knows Best' sensibility about it that exalts character over profit margins. But in my opinion, the story's execution falls short of its potential."

Ikiru (1956)

"This may be the definitive portrait of a man who, examining his life, discovers that it may not be worth living."

I, Robot (2004)

"Smith's occasional sullenness suggests he is itching for another Ali-like chance to prove his acting chops even as he slums his way through another high-tech shoot-'em-up."

I Am David (2004)

"While some parents might wish the film had more emotional depth, they will probably appreciate the gentle humor. Then they can introduce their children to the book."

Hostage (2005)

"It revels in a sort of operatic vulgarity. And once the story exhausts its over-the-top cheesiness, there are still a few loose ends to tie up, and so the film drags on."

"A lot of fun and something different, poised to reach a broader audience with its silly and spirited tour of space -- which is vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big, by the way."

Hide and Seek (2005)

"This movie has more red herrings than an Agatha Christie novel combined with the aquarium downtown. The real question is, 'How did this stinker attract such a big name cast?'"

Hidalgo (2004)

"Cuarón has produced the most terrifying and darkly humorous movie adaptation of Rowling's stories to date, giving it a visual flair sorely missing in the previous installments."

The Grudge (2004)

"As a pure, light, PG-13 thrill machine, The Grudge is fairly successful. But it is not especially memorable."

"While the historical events depicted were unusual and cause for genuine celebration, the film that depicts these events is a dull, by-the-numbers set of war-movie clichés."

A Good Woman (2006)

Godsend (2003)

"You'll leave the theater somewhat emotionally spent -- feeling like you've been tackled by a 220-pound linebacker -- but it's worth the ride. One of the best sports movies ever."

Firewall (2006)

"There is an air of desperation about Firewall, a sense that Ford needed to make this movie just to keep his face in the public eye, lest we think he had fallen off the planet altogether."

"Not all comic-book films have to be as weighty and angst-filled as a graphic novel. Fantastic Four is neither fantastic nor incredible, but it's entertaining nonetheless."

"The movie feels a lot like slacker brother Ben: a little sloppy, mostly predictable, some flashes of poignancy and wisdom, but ultimately doesn't live up to its potential."
