"...the glorious, vast-yet-intimate, color-saturated cinematography by Robert D. Yeoman is more sublime than sweet lime."

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."

"While there are plenty of raunchy jokes, Bobby and Peter Farrelly are more mature [and] when it comes to characters worth caring about, The Heartbreak Kid is worth adding to the library."

Stardust (2007)

"Stardust is a sweet successor to fables like The Princess Bride and Willow, and it outshines its contemporaries like The Golden Compass and Beowulf."

Grace Is Gone (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."

Beowulf (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."

"The movie is very well-acted, sumptuously shot, and is certainly suspenseful up to a point -- so even though it does get shot full of holes at the end, Seraphim Falls is still well worth a look."

The Hoax (2007)

"It's been said that acting is simply a form of lying. If that's true, then actor Richard Gere has pulled off one hell of an Escher move in The Hoax, a biopic in which he plays shameless liar Clifford Irving."
