Last Holiday (2006)
Queen Latifah has such an engaging on-screen persona that she's able to make gem out of what would have otherwise been a lump of coal of a movie.

Hoodwinked (2005)
It's a sad case of Red opening up her goodie basket and finding that there's nothing there.

Munich (2005)
The most controversial movie that Steven Spielberg has ever created. It's also one of his best

Wolf Creek (2005)
one of the more disturbing horror films I've seen in quite some time.

Memoirs of a Geisha may be culturally inaccurate and a bit pulpy, but so were some of the best movie-romances ever.

3/4
The dark humor is amusing enough to suck you into the film, and the melodramatic conclusion will send you out of the theater with a tear in your eye.

Syriana (2005)
If you enjoy complicated plots, you'll certainly get your money's worth at Syriana.

for those children old enough to endure the violence, this is a masterpiece of fantasy literature come to life

Aeon Flux (2005)
isn't as bad as I feared it might be, but it's certainly nothing more than a run-of-the-mill action flick that just happens to have some cool set designs

Rent (2005)
while I can admire the film for its efforts, Rent comes across as a somewhat lackluster performance when compared to the stage version that I so dearly love.

Walk the Line will send you out of the theater eager to download the entire Johnny Cash collection.

it's still a lot of fun, but you can sense all of the missing material which makes this Harry Potter not quite up to par with the other three installments.

1.5/4
The 50 Cent Fan Club will fill the seats hoping to get a glimpse into their hero, but Get Rich never offers any insights into what drives the man and his music.

Zathura (2005)
a perfect PG adventure where two brothers bond while dodging meteors and fighting off giant space lizards

Jarhead (2005)
given the director's pedigree, it has to be considered as a serious disappointment.

a nice story and enough energy to make Disney's latest film into a solid crowd-pleaser

3/4
Prime (2005)
feels a bit gimmicky at times, but it succeeds because it's filled with likeable characters, solid acting and some all too painfully funny moments of humanity

2/4
features a winning cast and is jam-packed with some pretty good action scenes, but it's also so defanged that the film doesn't engender any real tension.

while its message is undeniably important, it's also so obvious that the film doesn't have any real resonance.

a pretty good little thriller, but clocking in at only 95 minutes, it doesn't have enough meat to be a truly satisfying drama.

Serenity (2005)

2.5/4
Flightplan (2005)
presented with such enthusiastic abandon that it's easy to get caught up in the proceedings, no matter how far-fetched.

2.5/4
Lord of War (2005)
Cage blunts the film's message by his over-acting, turning it into a film that's not quite serious drama, not quite comedy, and not quite good.

...two lead actors who are strong enough to carry the movie despite a predictable and mediocre screenplay

I guess it's appropriate that the new movie about demonic possession should suffer from a split personality

Redford and co-star Morgan Freeman act circles around their much younger supporting cast.

there's no denying that Statham is once again so cool that bad plot, bad physics and bad acting by the supporting cast are very easily forgotten.

2.5/4
a film overflowing with cool sets and special effects, yet it's also rather emotionally unengaging, something that has plagued Gilliam all throughout his career.

3.5/4
awell-acted film with an impressive literary pedigree, but it's Meirelles and his directorial style who really makes the film into something special.

Valiant (2005)
modern kids won't get any of the World War II references, and to be honest, the rest of the adventure is mediocre at best.

Sky High (2005)
a winning combination of teen melodrama, quirky characters and superhero fantasy, almost tailor made for a long run as a Saturday morning TV show on the Disney Channel.

The Island (2005)
There's a good idea and an intriguing story hidden underneath all of Bay's boom-booms. Too bad the smoke doesn't clear long enough to see it.

3.5/4
While Depp's weird character dominates the film, it's actually director Tim Burton's visual design and memorable camerawork that makes the film into something special.

If you're a huge zombie fan, then by all means, go worship at the altar of Romero. But if you're just looking for a scary movie, you can do better on DVD
