J. Edgar (2011)
The Story of Lovers Rock (2011)
"You can add The Story of Lovers Rock to the short list of must-see, politically-tinged documentaries which shed light on the cultural roots of a lesser-known musical genre, ala Calypso Dreams and Buena Vista Social Club. "
Tower Heist (2011)
The Mighty Macs (2011)
Thunder Soul (2011)
Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2008)
Sarah Palin: You Betcha! (2011)
Real Steel (2011)
The Weird World of Blowfly (2011)
The Secret Life of Bees (2008)
The Express (2008)
"A fine addition to the recent genre of socially-conscious sports flicks highlighting individual feats for the collective meaning of those historic triumphs to the masses of black folks in search of civil rights."
Meet Dave (2008)
College Road Trip (2008)
Very Young Girls (2007)
American Masters (2008)
"An eye-opening documentary delineating how motion pictures have negatively impacted the Asian community, and how they are like to continue to effect impressionable young minds for generations to come."
Without the King (2007)
How She Move (2008)
"Accolades are in order for the inspired performances delivered by the two talented young leads, Juilliard-grad Rutina Wesley and dancer-turned-actress Tre Armstrong in this refreshingly-intelligent, inner-city melodrama."
First Sunday (2008)
She's Gotta Have It (1986)

American Gangster (2007)
Talk to Me (2007)
Why Did I Get Married? (2007)
D.L. Hughley: Unapologetic (2007)
"The basic question you need to ask yourself in approaching this comedy conceert comes down to whether you want to set yourself up to listen to mean-spirited and crude jokes you might be embarrassed to admit made you laugh in polite company."
Balls of Fury (2007)
"A breakout role for Dan Fogler, who comes across as a combination of Johns Belushi and Candy, exhibiting the former's unbounded enthusiasm, and the latter's ever-endearing charm. Just remember to check your brain at the box-office."
Resurrecting the Champ (2007)
"Pardon me for being offended when a flick revolving around the question of journalistic ethics takes so many liberties with the truth simply to spin a tall tale designed to tug on unsuspecting heartstrings."
The Simpsons Movie (2007)
"Brilliant, if belated, but be forewarned that The Simpsons, the movie, is merely The Simpsons, the television show, only on a much bigger screen and in an extended format. You want more, you got more."
Who's Your Caddy? (2007)
"Exposes the U.S. as a very dangerous place to be any combination of poor, sick and old and suggests that the AMA ought to consider changing its Hippocratic oath from 'First, do no harm,' to 'First, check the wallet.'"
"Is Barry Bonds the greatest home run hitter ever or a cheater helped by performance enhancing drugs? This balanced documentary doesn't endeavor to answer that question, leaving it to the viewer to draw the obvious conclusion that he just might be both."
"Though a bit melodramatic in spots by today's standards, holds up enough to remain heartily recommended as a valuable history lesson and as a juxtaposition to demeaning satires by shock comics such as Dave Chappelle."
Delta Farce (2007)
The Hip Hop Project (2006)
Perfect Stranger (2007)
"The F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic, The Great Gatsby, adapted as a modern-day morality play in blackface. This fairly-faithful version explores the same themes as its source material, only with a hip-hop spin."
I Think I Love My Wife (2007)
