Wild Hogs (2007)
one of those lowest common denominator movies that aims only for easy laughs and a quick paycheck for its main actors

3/4
a quirky, feel-good flick that espouses the virtues of following your dreams, no matter how improbable.

Ghost Rider (2007)
There's nothing here that you haven't seen previously in much better comic book movies.

It's not often that a kiddie-flick will elicit genuine emotion in the audience

Norbit (2007)
the humor is mean-spirited and the jokes rather puerile.

2/4
each character in the film is so shallow and cold that there's nobody for the audience to cheer on.

Smokin' Aces (2007)
does little more than ape some vague Quentin Tarantino/Guy Ritchie cinematic style

1.5/4
The Hitcher (2007)
I don't get the rational behind remaking a mediocre piece of cinematic fluff that never really captured the public's attentions in the first place.

Dreamgirls (2006)
There's no faint-praise here. It's the best film of the year.

Rocky Balboa (2006)
an uplifting, very well made and fitting ending for the cinematic champ.

3.5/4
to borrow a line from the beloved spider, Charlotte, her new movie is simply "Terrific," "Radiant" and "Some Film!"

3/4
Apocalypto (2006)
As good as it is, the film is nevertheless tempered by an overwhelming streak of sadism.

3.5/4
great acting and the gorgeous African scenery combine to form what is easily one of the best films of the year.

2.5/4
may well be the greatest story ever told, but it leaves a lot to be desired on a purely cinematic level.

2/4
The Fountain (2006)
beautiful but overreaching piece of cinematic poetry.
Posted Dec 17, 2006

1.5/4
seems to have only been greenlit because producers know that families need PG-rated dreck to occupy the kiddies while mom is out shopping for Christmas presents.
Posted Dec 17, 2006

3/4
Déjà Vu (2006)
starts off with a high-octane opening and seldom slows down, which means that most viewers won't have time to think about the logical inconsistencies of the film's story.

3/4
Blond-haired or not, it's nice to know that James Bond hasn't lost a step as a new actor slips into the role.
Posted Nov 21, 2006

3/4
Happy Feet (2006)
Cute animated penguins plus a toe-tapping collection of classic R & B music and dance routines equals a smash hit
Posted Nov 21, 2006

Will Ferrell in a reserved, highbrow comedy? Now that is Stranger Than Fiction.

Saw III (2006)

3/4
Catch a Fire (2006)
Director Noyce has been behind some terrific political thrillers lately, but Catch a Fire never quite ignites.

1.5/4
The Grudge 2 (2006)
just a quick scare and then back to the nonsensical and diluted story.

3/4
Flicka (2006)
will surely appeal to young girls, and even the occasional grown male film critic.
Posted Oct 26, 2006

3.5/4
The Departed (2006)
Scorsese's best in years-strong praise considering that his last two movies were both up for the Best Picture Academy Award.
Posted Oct 12, 2006
33
2/4
The problem lies with the bland bombshell at the center and the overall sense that the filmmakers keep missing obvious comic opportunities.
Posted Oct 12, 2006

2.5/4
The deadly serious corporate malfeasance story doesn't mesh well with Williams' politically humorous antics.
Posted Oct 12, 2006

2/4
a powerful story in real life, but it just doesn't come across on film.
Posted Oct 3, 2006

features amazing production design and a fascinating story at first, the film does eventually fall apart at the end.

I can't recommend their methods, I will applaud their energy and commitment to this particular brand of stupidity.

The Guardian (2006)
...turns out to be a crowd-pleasing drama that Coast Guard fans will adore, even if it is only an average genre flick at best.

The Covenant (2006)
nothing more than a bunch of Abercrombie and Fitch models and some special effects.
Posted Sep 11, 2006

2/4
It's certainly a juicy, real-life mystery; one that's explored with surprising non-commitment
Posted Sep 8, 2006

3.5/4
one of the best films I've seen all year.
Posted Aug 22, 2006

2/4
a serviceable drama for the pre-teen set, but it doesn't have the acting or the cinematic polish to set it apart as something special.
Posted Aug 22, 2006

3/4
Accepted (2006)
a light-hearted and enjoyable slacker comedy-sort of an Animal House meets Revenge of the Nerds exercise in silliness.
Posted Aug 18, 2006
47
3/4
a cheesy, B-movie thrill ride with a lot of action, over-the-top special effects and a super cool leading man.

Zoom (2006)
derivative kiddie adventure falls flat on its face.

3.5/4
a nearly pitch-perfect film that celebrates the ordinary heroes of 9/11

Barnyard (2006)
never really amazing enough to separate it from the rest of the herd of great animation that we've seen this summer.
