Fair Game (2005)

"With colorful characters relying on exaggerated Ebonics, this sitcom unfolds like an extended episode of a modern-day, minstrel TV show except not as funny, especially since the stereotypes on display here are by and large woefully outdated."

Roll Bounce (2005)

"For some reason, teasing people about their skin color has become a big theme of brainless black comedies like this. Plus, it unfolds like one long Pepsi ad, with dialogue extolling the cola's virtues in virtually every scene."

Freedomland (2006)

"By frequently relying on dizzying, hand-held camera work, director Joe Roth manufactures a palpable sense of perhaps unearned urgency."

Who Made the Potatoe Salad? (2006)

"The ghetto goes Godzilla! The actors' lips are frequently not synchronized with their dialogue, producing an effect which makes the movie look like a badly-dubbed Japanese monster movie from the Fifties."

Crash (2004)

"This articulate and particularly poignant mood piece demands nothing of its audience, except for some brutally honest introspection about our unquestioned presumptions about the human condition. Easily, the best film of 2005."

When the Levees Broke (2006)

"Despite capturing many heartbreaking aspects of the disaster, this is essentially an overambitious mess which ultimately fails to convey effectively the scale or scope of the ongoing tragedy."

Are We There Yet? (2005)

"This lame excuse for a family flick stars Ice Cube and Nia Long, but features a Ford SUV, the Lincoln Navigator, in what really amounts to an over-extended automobile ad."
