3/4
bears little resemblance to the "Horton" I imagined in my youth, but the kiddies that filled the theater around me seemed to eat it all up.

10,000 B.C. (2008)
Good special effects are expensive, so the filmmakers are forced to use unimpressive actors to fill in the spaces between the CGI creations.

3/4
The Bank Job (2008)
There's a charming retro vibe to "The Bank Job," a historical crime caper with more comic hues than violent flourishes.

Penelope (2006)
There's absolutely nothing wrong with the film, but it's just not strong enough to be a real winner either.

2/4
Semi-Pro (2008)
the sports section simply isn't very stirring, and without a supporting cast dedicated to the humor, the film isn't consistently funny either.

2.5/4
The more they replay the story, the more you realize that there really wasn't all that much to see in the first place.

"Ferris Bueller" for the new millennium. It's a bit more jaded, and the problems are a bit more serious, but Charlie is such a cheerful dude that it's hard not to get caught up in his adventure.

3.5/4
If you're looking for a movie that isn't just the same old, same old, "Definitely, Maybe" is definitely the movie for you.

2.5/4
works well-enough as a CGI adventure aimed at the kiddies, but grownups will probably be indifferent to this otherwise average story that features some pretty cool monster effects, but not much else.

2.5/4
a cast full of talented comedians and a director who obviously doesn't mind watching his cast go way over the top in search of raucous and randy laughs

Fool's Gold (2008)
It may glitter, but this certainly isn't gold.

The Eye (2008)
does deserve points for an atmospheric first hour, it's undone by bad acting and a pedestrian ending.

2/4
Untraceable (2008)
"Untraceable" certainly isn't unwatchable, but it is a bit unbelievable, rather predictable and more than a little bit gruesome (-able?)

I wonder if he'll remake "Rhinestone" or "Stop! Or my Mom Will Shoot" next?

27 Dresses (2008)
not a bad film by any means, but there's just not anything special going on here either.

Cloverfield (2008)
pure adrenaline-filled fun, and about a scary as you can get with a PG-13 rated monster flick.

Atonement (2007)
a superbly-made film that all but cries out for Oscar accolades

I hope that I get to see many more movies as enjoyable as The Bucket List before I kick my bucket and head for that great multiplex in the sky.

One Missed Call doesn't have much style or substance.

Juno (2007)
one of the strongest characters in cinema this year. Look for a bunch of Academy Award nominations

as good as this movie is, I get the sense that Charlie Wilson himself has some better stories to tell.

Despite the weak vocal work, the film does nevertheless border on brilliance, and seems to be a shoo in for an Academy Award nomination.

I Am Legend (2007)
pretty much a one-man show, and Smith proves to have the acting chops to keep us interested in the story

The story may be non-existent and the acting pedestrian at best, but the chipmunks are just so darn cute that the film will make you smile-you may even sing along at times.

Awake (2007)

August Rush (2007)
this crowd-pleasing fable does a lot of good things, but it also makes so many glaring missteps that it's hard to get truly caught up by the magic.

I would have preferred a bit more resolution, but it's hard to fault the filmmakers for sticking to their filmic style

Beowulf (2007)
a highly entertaining action flick, with the final dragon battle being particularly memorable.

Polemics can be very entertainment. Intellectual argument films are just boring.

Fred Claus (2007)
the film does score points for being big and shiny, featuring some very funny moments and a warm-and-fuzzy ending that will appeal to all but the biggest Scrooges out there.

a riveting crime drama, wisely populated with a top-shelf cast and based on a harrowing Dennis Lehane novel.

It's done in bad taste, but unlike their past few films, I must admit that I laughed this time out.

2.5/4
There's a fine line between pandering and giving an audience what it wants. The Game Plan walks this line, just barely staying on the tasteful side.

features some fine acting and a touchstone subject matter, but I wasn't nearly as impressed as I thought I would be by a film with this pedigree.

The Kingdom (2007)
one of those films that tries to be a little bit of everything, and for the most part succeeds, even if audiences may not be able to survive the cinematic whiplash.

The only thing that matters in a film like this is whether the main character looks cool (yes) and whether the action and gore are exciting (a qualified yes)

a lot of dirty-minded snickers, but not as many genuine laughs as you might have hoped for.

should have been a quickie revenge flick, but turns out to have a lot more meat on its bones thanks to Foster's strong performance and assured direction by Neil Jordan

Mr. Woodcock (2007)
a one-joke premise that will only appeal to those who snicker at the film's title.
