Rating Title/Year Author
School for Scoundrels (2006) Mark Kermode It's not funny; there were three laughs I counted over the entire course of the movie. EDIT

The Good Shepherd (2006) Mark Kermode It's well built but the Matt Damon character remains blank and too young to be convincing. It's solid, but like Damon himself it's a bit dull. EDIT

The Number 23 (2007) Mark Kermode A dopey numerical thriller that wants to be Se7en times three. EDIT

Letters From Iwo Jima (2006) Mark Kermode Does have a genuine emotional core and makes Flags of our Fathers look like a better film. But whether or not it's a great film; the jury is still out. EDIT

Them (2006) Mark Kermode A perfectly-fine stripped-down little horror movie and if you're not a hardcore horror fan you'll probably find some of it surprising. EDIT

Venus (2006) Mark Kermode Roger Michel knows how to do People-in-Rooms better than most directors do, but the joys of it really are the performances and it's worth seeing for O'Toole and Phillips together. EDIT

Bobby (2006) Mark Kermode Quite apart from the fact that it's spectacularly uninventive and uncontroversial, it's just such a luvvie-fest. EDIT

The Fountain (2006) Mark Kermode Bonkers, adventurous, silly, ambitious, charming, foolish; it's all those things and it'll be gone in a week. But it's not mainstream Bore-o fare, and for that it should be celebrated. EDIT

Blood Diamond (2006) Mark Kermode Issue-tainment. Puts the issue of conflict diamonds in the public eye. Whether or not that makes it a great drama is a slightly different question. EDIT
