Larry Crowne (2011)
Could have been a solid, straightforward rom com coasting on likable leads; half-hearted additions trying to link the movie to economic crisis just detract.

I'm Not There may inspire great movies, but doesn't have the discipline to be one itself.

The wild, unstoppable commercial success of the Pirates franchise has freed Verbinski to spend a lot of time on flights of fancy and mythological asides.

A subpar A-Team episode with George Clooney as Face.

Knocked Up (2007)
Goodhearted and refreshingly messy.

Forget blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, wasting our time with License to Wed is the one unpardonable sin.

Slow-building but creepy story of biker pug uglies, radiation poisoning, and prissy Brit schoolkids.

Feebleminded slapdashery.

Secret Honor (1984)
Does anyone have a clue what Altman was driving at with this intense glob of lunacy?

Bewitched (2005)
I'll have some of what Nora Ephron's having, as long as I don't have to watch her movies.

Not only was Good Night, and Good Luck filmed in black-and-white, it was written and acted that way, too. This is Good versus Evil for Political Dummies.

Bad News Bears is a late summer hoot, and hopefully what your kids are really seeing when they tell you they're going to Sky High.

Belafonte is magic in his loneliness.

The class dynamics of Batman Begins are just insufferable. Thank heavens we have our incorruptable masked moneybags to keep the criminal poor in line.

15
Leap Year (1924)
Slow-moving silent comedy which didn't get screened for sixty years because of Arbuckle's scandal; mainly of historical interest.
Posted Jun 7, 2005
16
Primer (2004)
I didn't understand Primer; worse yet, I didn't care.

F for Fake (1974)

The Yes Men (2004)
19
Preposterous, slow, and unimaginative.

College (1927)
Madcap fun as the supremely athletic Keaton plays a bookworm who, for love of a jock-loving girl, tries but fails heroically at every possible sport in every possible way.
Posted Feb 19, 2005
21
Superb thriller scored to Eurotrash synth pop, La Femme Nikita sets out a whole world of espionage and violence, and engages with a wild yet sympathetic lead.
Posted Feb 4, 2005
22
A celebration of artistry, not as mere ornament, but as the very stuff of life.

Mystery of the Universe #237: the same Clint Eastwood who once co-starred with an orangutan is now America's finest director of tragedy.

Sexy and complicated as between its adult leads, Bad Education also marks the most insightful critique yet of the pedophile scandals in the Catholic Church.
Posted Feb 3, 2005
25
Ray (2004)
Yet another ho-hum man of genius biopic, showcasing a scenery-chewing lead-behaving-badly, shoddy Freudian psychoanalysis, and cliche bottom-of-the-ninth redemption.
Posted Feb 3, 2005
26
Sideways (2004)
A funny, heartfelt coming-of-middle-age story by, for, and about snobs.
Posted Feb 3, 2005
27
Carandiru (2004)
Humanity struggles out from under a maximally oppressive system, commenting by haunting metaphor on life outside the prison walls.

If Plan 10 From Outer Space, a.k.a. Mars Needs Women, doesn't tickle your funnybone, you really don't have one.
Posted Feb 3, 2005
29
Gacy (2003)
Gacy channels its horror through bicentennial suburban kitsch, clowns-in-the-closet visuals, and a heaving, foul, maggot-carpeted crawlspace deep with death and lies.
Posted Dec 31, 2004

Caligula (1979)
Caligula turns the Julian dynasty's most violent chapter into a sleazy snoozefest. Even the Penthouse Pets look pained to be decorating this historic bomb.
Posted Nov 25, 2004

Alfie (2004)
What at first seems a glossy ad for the swinging single life gradually reveals itself as an stinging indictment of the emotional impotent.

Taxi (2004)
License revoked.

Porn Star runs out of insight and surprises long before the closing credits roll.

5/5
Brilliant. Reno 911! makes up for all those horribly unfunny Police Academy movies.
Posted Sep 26, 2004

A must-see for perhaps the most scathing verbal pyrotechnics ever committed to film.
Posted Sep 26, 2004

5/5
The alpha and omega of shock filmmaking.
Posted Sep 26, 2004

A welcome return to a more innocent time in geopolitics. Also be sure to catch the mod! fab! DVD preview for Dr. Strangelove.

Self-important knuckleheads bloviate on club life. Though docs are reknown as tools to create empathy, Bounce merely confirms the worst prejudices of its audience.

Goldfinger (1964)
Goldfinger remains the gold standard for the Bond movies. Recent entries can't compare to this lustrous thriller, a throwback to when the term "thriller" had meaning.
Posted Sep 26, 2004

Unenlightening.

3/5
Arranged in short episodes, each composed entirely of awkward and embarassed conversation between midlevel celebs, Coffee and Cigarettes entertains fitfully.
Posted Sep 26, 2004

With wit as dry as the chapped lips of a constant mouth-breather, Napoleon Dynamite finds moments of painful reserve even in slapstick.
Posted Sep 4, 2004

Hero (2004)
Truly beautiful, but undeniably resigned to peace through tyranny.
Posted Sep 4, 2004

European Union navel-gazing plus braying youth worship equals L' Auberge Espagnol.
Posted Sep 1, 2004
46
Stoked gives a young woman's rape and murder almost no narrative weight -- it is merely the disappointing spoiler to a talented skateboarder's career.
Posted Sep 1, 2004
47
Westray (2001)
Westray explains in painful detail how communities will themselves into fatal ignorance.
Posted Aug 13, 2004

Bourne himself hovers above mere physical threats, draining this action movie of any urgency.

4/5
Super-charged, Amazonian feminism hijacks the caper, buddy, revenge, and road trip genres. One hell of a ride.

Bonhoeffer (2003)
Bonhoeffer follows the life of one prominent churchman as he develops an ethics to nourish the anti-Nazi resistence.
