3/5 Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (1994) Alex Sandell It's a guy in a monster suit. Gotta love it! EDIT

8/10 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Alex Sandell David Fincher never lets his movie devolve into a petty revenge fantasy. The filmmaker clearly got the novel and, consequently, gets the most out of the novel. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is just what the fans were demanding. EDIT

9/10 The Artist (2011) Alex Sandell In a strange way, it's not unlike The Matrix -- only this time the red pill transports you into the futuristic world of sound, rather than a cynical world of two increasingly abysmal sequels. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2012
7/10 Drag Me to Hell (2009) Alex Sandell Drag Me to Hell's PG-13 rating holds [Raimi] back from the all-out, blood-spraying gonzo insanity he reached with Evil Dead, but he still gets away with a surprising amount of gross-out gags. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2012
2/10 Babel (2006) Alex Sandell Rubbish so pretentious it would make the folks behind Crash begin to blush. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2007
9/10 Pan's Labyrinth (2006) Alex Sandell A dark fairy tale that only Guillermo del Toro could bring to life. The screenwriter/director can do no wrong. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2007
7/10 The Queen (2006) Alex Sandell You can't help but be taken by Mirren's faultless performance. Entranced by her every nuance. In awe of her very artistry as an actress. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2007
5/10 Rocky Balboa (2006) Alex Sandell A nostalgic rush-job filmed for a quick buck. EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2007
4/10 Dreamgirls (2006) Alex Sandell A poorly written film with poorly written songs and almost no character development. EDIT
Posted Jan 24, 2007
10/10 Letters From Iwo Jima (2006) Alex Sandell Letters from Iwo Jima takes no sides, takes no prisoners and will hopefully take home a handful of Oscars. EDIT
Posted Jan 24, 2007
7/10 Saw III (2006) Alex Sandell Makes the first two look about as intimidating as a child's six piece jigsaw puzzle. This is for the hardcore horror fan and for the hardcore horror fan only. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2006
9/10 The Departed (2006) Alex Sandell Martin Scorsese must have missed the memo stating that Hollywood movies were being dumbed down for mass audiences. The director has created one of the best films of the year, guaranteed to keep audiences on their toes. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2006
7/10 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) Alex Sandell The most brutal Massacre since the 1974 original. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2006
4/10 World Trade Center (2006) Alex Sandell There's been talk of World Trade Center bringing people to tears. After seeing the film, it's hard to believe that they're not tears of boredom. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2006
8/10 The Descent (2005) Alex Sandell One of the scariest horror movies of the past 20 years. Would do Wes Craven, George A. Romero and James Whale proud. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2006
1/10 Miami Vice (2006) Alex Sandell Michael Mann must have mistaken neon lights, awkward sex scenes and bad pop songs for a good movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2006
3/10 The Ant Bully (2006) Alex Sandell With Monster House already being presented in 3-D at theaters worldwide, there isn't a single reason to recommend The Ant Bully. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2006
8/10 Scoop (2006) Alex Sandell The key to the film's success is the pairing of [Scarlett] Johansson and [Woody] Allen as ham-handed investigative journalists. Johansson brings out the funny in Allen like nobody since Diane Keaton. EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2006
9/10 Monster House (2006) Alex Sandell Don't let this one pass you by on the big-screen. It's movie magic. The kind many of us thought died many summers ago. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2006
3/10 My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) Alex Sandell About as far from 'super' as a comedy can get. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2006
6/10 Lady in the Water (2006) Alex Sandell The critic in me wants to boo and hiss and cry in disappointment. The 5-year-old in me wants to stand up and applaud. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2006
8/10 Silent Hill (2006) Alex Sandell No matter how you interpret the film, it's nearly impossible to deny what a beautiful work of art it is. EDIT
Posted May 5, 2006
8/10 Eight Below (2006) Alex Sandell It's lucky for human actors that canines can't win Academy Awards, because, if they could, the dogs in Eight Below would sweep next year's Oscars. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2006
8/10 Capote (2005) Alex Sandell Capote is the movie that will make Philip Seymour Hoffman a star, while posthumously turning the man it was named after into a monster. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2006
6/10 Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005) Alex Sandell The movie is a reminder of how important art -- more especially controversial art -- can be in a time of war. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2006
7/10 Hustle & Flow (2005) Alex Sandell Having a dream isn't easy ... EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2006
7/10 Cinderella Man (2005) Alex Sandell The feel good bomb of the year. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2006
10/10 The Constant Gardener (2005) Alex Sandell This multi-faceted masterpiece works successfully on more levels than any ten remakes or sequels pumped out of the habitual humdrum Hollywood hit machine. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2006
8/10 Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005) Alex Sandell An admirable piece of work that takes a bold stand -- not just against events of the past, but events of the present. Hopefully, in the process, it can save the future. EDIT
Posted Jan 12, 2006
8/10 Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) Alex Sandell Even though the novel is one of my favorites; the movie did not leave me disappointed. It left me wanting more, but I didn't walk out dissatisfied with what I was given. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2006
8/10 Brokeback Mountain (2005) Alex Sandell Brokeback Mountain is a beautifully filmed and superbly acted picture. It's a romance for the ages and it's ready, willing and able to break your heart. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2006
5/10 Munich (2005) Alex Sandell Steven Spielberg should stop worrying about winning shiny statues and start focusing on creating good films. Maybe then he'd deserve to take home another trophy or two. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2006
7/10 King Kong (2005) Alex Sandell The one remake to rule them all! EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2005
4/10 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) Alex Sandell A bloated, cumbersome, overlong misfire. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2005
8/10 Walk the Line (2005) Alex Sandell Witherspoon and Phoenix are brilliant. Their chemistry is undeniable. The way they play off of each other is masterful. They make Walk the Line unforgettable. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2005
5/10 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) Alex Sandell [Mike] Newell turns the spine-tingling and well-crafted world J.K. Rowling created for the novel into a lump of flat banality. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2005
7/10 Zathura (2005) Alex Sandell Its world of corporeal creatures and practical FX will allow kids to believe in the movie in a way that many have never believed in a film on the big screen before. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2005
9/10 The Weather Man (2005) Alex Sandell Where is it written that offbeat movies don't belong outside of art house theaters or Netflix rental queues? Pass this one up and it'll be you with egg McMuffin on your face. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2005
0/5 Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993) Alex Sandell Unwatchable. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2005
7/10 Saw II (2005) Alex Sandell Saw II is bound to give fans of the original a real buzz. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2005
Friday the 13th, Part 2 (1981) Alex Sandell The last Friday the 13th film that makes an effort to scare its audience, rather than just going through the motions. EDIT
Posted Oct 24, 2005
6/10 City of the Walking Dead (1980) Alex Sandell The movie is piled high with cheese, but makes for a tasty guilty pleasure. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2005
8/10 Doom (2005) Alex Sandell Doom fans, this is the movie that you've been fragging for! EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2005
10/10 Night of the Living Dead (1968) Alex Sandell One of the best films ever made, and possibly the most influential horror movie of all time. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2005
5/10 Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story (2005) Alex Sandell I wonder if the 'true story' Dreamer was 'inspired by' was the one where Seabiscuit made over 120 million dollars at the box-office in 2003? EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2005
2/10 Rats (1984) Alex Sandell It's there to watch once, laugh at and then use the DVD for a coaster. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2005
4/10 A History of Violence (2005) Alex Sandell Olson should have studied a history of screenwriting before attempting to adapt A History of Violence. One of the most aimless, derivative films to ever be overrated. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2005
1/10 The Fog (2005) Alex Sandell Hollywood is a remake junky and we're its enablers. How long before the studio system has a fatal overdose? The Fog could do it. Moviedom, you need help. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2005
6/10 Hell Night (1981) Alex Sandell Hell Night brought out the gimp at least a decade before Pulp Fiction was even a twinkle in Quentin Tarantino's eye. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2005
9/10 Evil Dead 2 (1987) Alex Sandell Best slapstick seen in a horror flick. If Charlie Chaplin were alive today and into terror, he'd be directing this movie. Okay, maybe not -- but at least he wouldn't be dead. EDIT
