G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

"Despite the brou-ha-ha that has been talked about for months and currently about the state of the film, 'G.I Joe: Rise of the Cobra' is a pure adrenaline fantasy and fun ride."

Fragments (2008)

"Despite its very impressive lineup, this film is full of inconsistencies and moves at a slow pace. So many performances are wasted."

Life Is Hot in Cracktown (2009)

"Aside from tremendous performances given by Washington and Rasuk, the bleakness in 'Cracktown' doesn't offer a solution that leaves a positive outlook on life."

Angels & Demons (2009)

"Like 'Code,' 'Angels' is filled with such far-fetched story lines that you'll be instantly drawn in or dismiss this as another convoluted film from Ron Howard."

Star Trek (2009)

"A splendid space saga so spellbinding, I won't complain about their resurrecting that infuriating, infinitive-splitting catchphrase, 'To boldly go where no one has gone before!'"

Star Trek (2009)

"With director J.J. Abrams on board, the newest movie in the series is not only action-packed but also filled with surprises."

The Soloist (2009)

"Although Jamie Foxx's performance in 'The Soloist' is worth the ticket price, the film fails to leave audiences with a satisfying ending."

Looking for Lincoln (2009)

Fast & Furious (2009)

"While it's good to see the original cast back, there isn't much of a story and even less action to keep you entertained."

Watchmen (2009)

"Visually, it's eye-popping and gorgeous, and the costumes are a sight to see; but with its heavy adult-themed plot, viewers will be mixed with this artistic approach."

Taken (2009)

Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans (2009)

"Michael Sheen certainly makes the most out of his role as Lucian. He's the center of attention and relishes in it. Fans of the monster-film genre will not be disappointed."

Notorious (2009)

"Although one may question how objective it is, considering it's produced by Wallace's mother and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, 'Notorious' is explosive, fun and entertaining."

Seven Pounds (2008)

"The pacing of the film is painfully slow that by the time one gets to the payoff at the end and understands what's going on, you may be fighting to remember what happened during the film if you stayed awake for it."

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)

"A crass, classic, take-the-money-and-run ripoff which squanders a golden opportunity to make a statement about racial profiling, the Patriot Act and the Geneva Conventions in favor of serving up a mindless teensploit laced with shockingly-graphic images."

Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is - The Complete Second Season (2008)

"An unblinking look inside the dysfunctional family of Keyshia Cole. There's a reason why this TV program is #1 with BET viewers, namely, it appeals to an even lower common denominator than I Love New York and The Flavor of Love combined."
