""Assassination" is an epic in every way, from its wide sweeping atmospheric Alberta locations, to its meticulous and magisterial attention to period detail. Mind you, for a Western there isn't that much violence and blood, but the sense of foreboding is e"
In the Shadow of the Moon (2007)
The Nanny Diaries (2007)
El Cantante (2007)
The Invasion (2007)
"After three successful cinematic renditions of Jack Finney's 1955 sci-fi novel "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (the 1978 version with Donald Sutherland being my favourite), they've finally managed to mangle it up."

Crime Novel (2005)
"In his eighth directorial effort, Romanzo Criminale, Placido takes aim at terrorism in his country during the 1970s . Though the proceedings are fascinating and powerful, it's unable to maintain momentum throughout its over two hours running time."
You Kill Me (2007)
"Like his deliciously original Last Seduction, director John Dahl returns to the wild side in You Kill Me, an odd and somewhat puzzling crime drama that throws the viewer for a loop thanks to its deadpan humour and absurdist narrative."
Introducing the Dwights (2007)
"Slightly slapsticky with broad Aussie humour, Cherie Nowlan's Introducing the Dwights is an ordinary dramedy that features a fine performance by British star Blenda Blethyn, but falls short in charm and originality."
"Like previous Potter installments, the danger is ever present and palpable, but now Harry is in dire need of his friends and it is intellectually refreshing to see a group of troubled youth rally together against the forces of evil."
"What a delicious concoction of French sophistication coupled with a dollop of slapstick humour and a sprinkling of visual marvel. Pixar's "Ratatouille" is the perfect recipe for an adult/child offering."
Live Free or Die Hard (2007)
Evan Almighty (2007)
A Mighty Heart (2007)
"Tim Story seems on the verge of "getting" it by introducing two of the comic-book series' most involving characters, , but fails in creating a satisfying back story, or any story at all for that matter."
Surf's Up (2007)
La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007)

Rise: Blood Hunter (2007)
"I wasn't expecting much from director/writer Sebastian Gutierrez, considering his last writing effort was the dismal "Snakes on a Plane." But in "Rise: Blood Hunter" he offers absolutely nothing new in terms of vampire stories if not a lush noirish atmosp"
Mr. Brooks (2007)
"Despite a promising intro and some darkly cool atmospherics, the picture pushes plausibility to the limit with a story that is ultimately laughable, using every studio gimmick and characters that are poorly explored."
Fay Grim (2007)
"Ho, ho, ho and my bum is very sore! I kept humming that to myself following nearly three hours of visual abuse. Overwhelmed by its bloated script, confusing plot and never-ending battle sequences, I admittedly was nevertheless awed by the special effects"
Black Book (2007)
"Initially Black Book reminded me of the wonderfully engrossing war movies that have been coming out of Germany and Holland lately. Then I was reminded that it's Paul Verhoeven behind the camera, which explains the pulp melodrama and superhuman exploits of"
Shrek the Third (2007)
"In "Shrek the Third," our green ogre is not only full of aches and pains, but is insufferable and whiny, which reflects the script's regurgitation of classic stories and repetitive themes. That said, the grumpy fool is surrounded by charming and endearing"
Close to Home (2007)
"Throughout Jindabyne, I felt completely creeped out. From the disturbing opening to images of children killing animals, adults abusing each other, and a corpse, the viewing experience was unpleasant."
The Ex (2007)
"After watching "The Ex" I wondered whether actors are bothering to read scripts anymore before accepting a job. In the case of Jesse Peretz's film, the story is as mean-spirited as it is ridiculous."
28 Weeks Later... (2007)
"When it was released, Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later" developed a cult following thanks to its irreverent approach to the tired zombie genre. Its sequel, "28 Weeks Later," cashes in on the same approach with a more intelligent script and story."
Civic Duty (2006)
The Flying Scotsman (2006)
"A true-life inspirational tale of about a young man who defies all odds, "The Flying Scotsman" is disappointingly devoid of emotion with a script that never manages to fully convey the personal demons floating about."
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
"Sam Raimi tries really hard to tie up loose ends in "Spider-Man 3," overloading our poor threesome with danger from all sides in attempting to keep the franchise fresh. And though repetition seems to be inevitable, I found the new villainy to be effective"
In the Land of Women (2007)
