Posted Jul 29, 2007
2.7/5 Goya's Ghosts (2006) Eric Lurio he acting is rather good, but only Ms. Portman and Mr. Quaid really shine. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007

Posted Jul 29, 2007
2.6/6 Arctic Tale (2007) Eric Lurio the footage is stunning, the narration, not so. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007
3/5 Live Free or Die Hard (2007) Eric Lurio Pure escapist fiction and has no relation to anything, which if you think about it, and you shouldn't, is perfectly fine. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007
4.3/5 Ratatouille (2007) Eric Lurio One of these days, Pixar is going to release a stinker. But that day isn't today. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007
2.6/5 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) Eric Lurio Except for Radcliff and Staunton, nobody gets more than an extended cameo. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007
2/5 I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007) Eric Lurio The laugh to wince factor is about five to two in favor of winces. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007
3.2/5 1408 (2007) Eric Lurio This presses all the right buttons, and is perfect accompaniment to the theater's air conditioning. A definite must for fans. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2007

Posted Jul 29, 2007
3/5 Mr. Brooks (2007) Eric Lurio If you're sick of sequels to a sequel of a sequel, then check this out. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2007
2.9/5 Bug (2006) Eric Lurio The final quarter of the film is actually rather bloody, almost living up to the promise of the trailer. It's actually rather subtle for a horror flick, but is really good just the same. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2007
2.6/5 Waitress (2007) Eric Lurio Whether or not one should take one's significant other to see it is questionable, because the character of Earl will put a damper on the romance to follow. Still%u2026 EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2007
4.2/5 Severance (2006) Eric Lurio For fans of the genre, this is the film of the year. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2007
2.5/5 Fracture (2007) Eric Lurio But the thing is pre-ordained and the viewer knows how it's going to end from the minute Ted is acquitted. However, if you're a L&O fan, it's worth a look. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.7/5 Spider-Man 3 (2007) Eric Lurio It's a huge budget Hollywood comic book blockbuster, you're going to see it anyway, and I'm not going to try to stop you. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.3/5 Lucky You (2007) Eric Lurio Hanson's usually sharp dialogue is rather blunted here, and the world of the film seems emotionless and remote. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
3.2/5 Away From Her (2006) Eric Lurio Julie Christie is as lovely as ever, and this may be a bit of a snag, as she doesn't really look old enough for the part. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.7/5 Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace (2006) Eric Lurio Cute is as cute does. Not much more. Eh. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
3.2/5 Snow Cake (2006) Eric Lurio scribe Angela Pell has crafted a really funny and touching script. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.3/5 Diggers (2006) Eric Lurio It's rather harmless, and it does have it's moments. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
3.1/5 Jindabyne (2006) Eric Lurio There's lots of talk about kharma without mentioning the word, and a major theological debate on transmigration of souls, which surprisingly, isn't boring at all. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.3/5 The Condemned (2007) Eric Lurio Attacking the intended audience is one of those things that a filmmaker just doesn't do. Jeez! EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
5/5 Paris, je t'aime (2006) Eric Lurio This is a film for people who love film... EDIT
Posted May 14, 2007
2.7/5 Perfect Stranger (2007) Eric Lurio I'm surprised that the red herring isn't extinct yet. It's almost as if the makers of this film fished them all out of the sea and put them in this film EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2007
1.4/5 Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (2007) Eric Lurio The makers of this film know who their audience is, and it probably isn't you. EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2007
3.2/5 Disturbia (2007) Eric Lurio D. J. Caruso and writers Christopher B. Landon and Carl Ellsworth have indeed ripped off Hitchcock to some extent, but it's also quite original, and some of the visuals are breathtaking. EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2007
2.3/5 The Reaping (2007) Eric Lurio Let's just hope Hillary Swank remains too big to do a #2. EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2007
3.8/5 The Hoax (2006) Eric Lurio Halstrum brings a light touch to the film which makes the proceedings a lot more fun then it might otherwise be. EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2007
2.8/5 After the Wedding (2006) Eric Lurio We have Rolf Lassgard chewing the scenery like nobody's business, and Ms. Babett managing to keep up with him. Mads Mikkelsen tries to keep up, but even though he can't, he's close enough behind to almost keep up with them. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2007
3.1/5 Meet the Robinsons (2007) Eric Lurio Well, don't worry. There's a plot twist, which explains everything, and once we get there, the whole thing suddenly becomes crystal clear. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2007
2.8/5 The Lookout (2007) Eric Lurio This is a taut, well-crafted film, with which even thought there's some gratuitous foreshadowing, keeps the views in suspense the entire time. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2007
2.3/5 First Snow (2006) Eric Lurio This is extremely uneven. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
3.6/5 Offside (2006) Eric Lurio This is thought provoking and lots and lots of fun. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
3/5 The Namesake (2006) Eric Lurio Kal Penn can actually ACT. Who knew? EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
2.8/5 The Last Mimzy (2007) Eric Lurio Better than expected orthodox, New Age (R) prosthetizing. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
2.5/5 Reign Over Me (2007) Eric Lurio Adam Sandler's best movie ever...but that's not saying much. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
2.3/5 Pride (2007) Eric Lurio Been there done that. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2007
2.3/5 Nomad (2007) Eric Lurio The use of "idiot plotting" to advance the story makes this laughable when it should be poetic. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2007
4.7/5 The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006) Eric Lurio This is one heck of a scary movie. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2007
1.8/5 I Think I Love My Wife (2007) Eric Lurio This is not a date film, nor is it a chick flick. I'm not sure who it's for,but it's probably not you. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2007
3.2/5 Zodiac (2007) Eric Lurio That was cool! EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2007
2.4/5 Wild Hogs (2007) Eric Lurio The entire cast aquits itself and none do anything so embarrassing that they can continue to have something to fall back on when they make bad investments. EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2007
4/5 300 (2006) Eric Lurio Zack Snyder has created one of the most stylish and intense comic book movies ever made-period. EDIT

Posted Mar 3, 2007
3/5 Starter for 10 (2006) Eric Lurio A genteel British version of "Animal House". EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2007
1.7/5 Wild Tigers I Have Known (2006) Eric Lurio If a film makes you root for the villain, and it's a "sesitive teen drama" then it fails. EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2007
3/5 The Astronaut Farmer (2007) Eric Lurio The Polish brothers, masters of the weird, have decided to make a family film. Everybody does that occasionally, and this time they succeed. EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2007
3/5 Amazing Grace (2006) Eric Lurio Think of this as "Pride and Prejudice" meets "Reds". EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2007
4/5 The Number 23 (2007) Eric Lurio I don't care what anybody else says. The acting was good and the script was complelling. So there! EDIT
