Isle Of Dogs (2010)
Anonymous (2011)
There was too much slapstick for my personal taste, but the people are endearing, the mechanization of the action is soufflé light, and the color, cinematography and overall awe-factor are undeniably captivating.

Director Jan Kounen's complex, considered style brings to mind the '70s-era work of Bertolucci or Bergman; little is explained, but all is shown %u2014 this is definitely a coffee, pie and conversation-after type film.

Robin Hood (2010)
Who doesn't smile at the thought of the tale of rollicking Robin Hood, Maid Marion, and the Merry Men? I can name a couple: Director Ridley Scott and star Russell Crowe. This dour duo bring a heretofore unexplored gloom and doom to the age-old fable.

My eyes were like saucers at the sight of Jim Morrison in all his splendor in never-before-seen 35mm outtakes from the 1969 experimental short film HWY.

(Untitled) (2009)
With the use of Sahara dry satirical wit and subtle, whip-smart mockery, (Untitled) sends up the pretension of the art world with love.

Whip It (2009)
Actor Ellen Page can do no wrong. Unfortunately director Drew Barrymore, screenwriter Shauna Cross, and cinematographer Robert D. Yeoman can.
Posted Sep 19, 2009
Director Miguel Arteta can't quite keep all the balls in the air long enough to sustain the film's running time, but he does manage a bang-up ending that's worth the wait.

Bronson (2009)
While I can't say Bronson is - to lean on a running gag of the movie's - "my cuppa tea," I can't say it isn't art either.
Posted Sep 19, 2009
It's not only a super cute adventure, perfectly appropriate for kids of all ages, but the vocal talent is a bountiful buffet, to say the least.
Posted Sep 19, 2009
All the ins and outs of the conference-room falsehoods and the jet-setting subterfuge are fun to follow, but it's really the acting, characters, and cleverly interwoven backdrops which make the flick stick.
Posted Sep 19, 2009
It's all about the architecture of love.

I was wowed by the unprecedented access to these men and the unconventional take on them as musicians.

Gigantic (2009)
Sleep Dealer (2009)
It's a good story and is well-acted and nicely shot, but its pace is disappointingly plodding.
Posted Apr 3, 2009
Everything is perfected to the letter, but it lacks the oomph of homage movies like Pleasantville, or the fun irony of social satires like Fido.

Moon (2009)
Moon is definitely one of the better science fiction movies to come out since Children of Men and Sunshine.
Posted Apr 3, 2009
Can't get it up.
Posted Apr 3, 2009
Burn After Reading is a crime comedy-of-errors that's pretty much flawless.
Posted Sep 10, 2008
Choke (2008)
A humdrum conundrum.
Posted Aug 8, 2008
The documentary, narrated by Johnny Depp, keeps the action moving along, even when there are only audio recording or still photos available to illustrate points - it's visually arresting as well as attention-grabbing.

Viva (2007)
If you love the '70s, and especially if you're a fan of sexploitation comedies like The Happy Hooker or today's me-generation throwbacks like CBS's Swingtown, then you absolutely cannot miss seeing Viva.
Posted Jun 28, 2008
The tale is told from the point of view of the man, which is an intriguing tack, but sadly, the sordid story unravels slowly and surprisingly tediously, considering all the emotional interplay, intrigue, gore, and gratuitous sex - I was bored beyond belie

Quid Pro Quo (2008)
In a summertime sea of superheroes, Indy emerges once again the coolest crusader of them all.
Posted May 20, 2008
I wish someone had lost this script in the fire.

CJ7 (2008)
The tragic events and their oddly cavalier presentation make CJ7 one of the most emotionally-scarring kid flicks since 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Posted Feb 22, 2008
Never Back Down is a compulsory guilty pleasure. Think: Save the Last Dance meets Fight Club meets 8 Mile meets YouTube.
Posted Feb 22, 2008
The Bank Job (2008)
One of best in the heist genre I've seen in some time.
Posted Feb 22, 2008
Its saving grace is also its downfall: there is no sappy sentiment, but no emotional pull, either.
Posted Dec 5, 2007
All put together, [the awesome] elements do little to inspire awe. In spite of the fact that it's gorgeous, well-acted, and action-packed, The Golden Compass is emotionally inert.
Posted Dec 5, 2007
I'm Not There is very much there in every sense: visual, aural, emotional.

Enchanted (2007)
Works like a charm!
Posted Nov 15, 2007
Magorium is not your average character, to say the least... Unfortunately, the film feels very average indeed.
Posted Nov 15, 2007
Beowulf (2007)
Straddling an uneasy line between fantasy and reality, this animation technique is more irritating than impressive.
Posted Nov 15, 2007
Sleuth (2007)
If you can get in the mood for a talky tête-à-tête, then Sleuth will be right up your lover's lane.
Posted Sep 19, 2007
For fans who say they'd pay to watch Brad Pitt read the Yellow Pages -- well, your money might be better-spent on that.
Posted Sep 19, 2007
Intelligent, absorbing, and exceedingly well-acted.

Mr. Woodcock (2007)
Billy Bob Thornton: acerbic aces!
Posted Sep 9, 2007
Delirious (2007)
While Delirious doesn't have the sophistication of DiCillo's Living in Oblivion, nor the biting wit of The Real Blonde, it's still worth a look for those who enjoy the entertainment industry's POV.
Posted Aug 1, 2007
...a whip-smart rollercoaster ride of bullets and baddies.
Posted Aug 1, 2007
Live Free or Die Hard is everything a fan of the franchise can expect, and more.

Ratatouille (2007)
Catch this rat!
Posted Jun 26, 2007
Puts the fun in funeral.

Your Mommy Kills Animals will more than likely still draw you in with its unbiased approach -- and, no matter where you stand on the issue of animals, you will definitely learn a lot about people.
