Nothing particularly subtle or different here.

The Well (1998)
Obviously, this is a must see for fans of Welles, but any film buff would certainly dig this doc.

Shopgirl (2005)
A step backwards for Steve Martin's writing career, but a big step forward for Claire Danes.

Park is the most exciting filmmaker to burst into my conscience in the last few years.

I'd happily sit through separate films about any of Virgin's co-stars.

Red Eye (2005)
Damn entertaining and - even better - at just 85 minutes, it's refreshingly economical.

Asylum (2005)
Richardson is terrific, but not worth a trip to see this in the theatre.

Plays like Elmore Leonard-Lite (R).

The title contains two words most of its potential audience won't be able to spell.

Armed with an idiotic lead, a rambling unfocused story, and an ending transparent enough to make the audience laugh out loud at the screen.

A blend of U-Turn and pre-digital Kiarostami.

Consistently very, very funny stuff.

The Island (2005)
A typical run-and-chase Bay-a-thon before morphing into a Polyphonic Spree video at the very end.

Murderball (2005)
It's everything a doc should be: Informative, funny, touching and ending with Canada spanking the US.

I liked it a lot, aside from the ending, which made me want to burn down the theater.

It's hysterical that the people who saw this movie as kids are now bent out of shape from the film's content because it's exactly the same as it was 29 years ago.

If Tarantino's first film was an homage to '70s grindhouse horror films instead of Reservoir Dogs, he probably would have made this picture.

Overrated Southern version of 8 Mile.

Different enough to not make me shake my head and say, 'Why did they even bother?'

It is, in no way, an improvement over the unreleased Roger Corman version from 1994.

A franchise that should be put out of its misery.

Will Ferrell? Time to start reading your scripts again, pal.

There's a lot of PG-13 jiggling.

Batman never once seems to be in real jeopardy (though you can hardly tell from his voice, which makes it sound like he's undergoing a perpetual colonoscopy).

The best slasher flick I've seen in...wait...it might be the best I can remember.

Rock School (2005)
Dewey Finn never suggested his students embrace the ways of Satan in order to play Black Sabbath covers with more gusto, but doing doesn't seem at all out of place here.

If you've seen the award-winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and dug it, you'll probably really like this.

Entertaining and affecting, but an Oscar movie this is not.

Ever wonder why your pizza delivery person seems to be suffering from advanced hallucinatory schizophrenia with involuntary narcissistic rage?

I'm still not totally convinced that this is the result of good filmmaking, so much as it simply makes viewers nostalgic for the original trilogy.

Not only is Cube AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, he also our fattest (note: not "phatest") action hero. They should have named his character XXXL.

A slightly hallucinatory homage to The Wild Ones.

Even if you don't like dancing and think the world would be a better place without so many kids, there's a pretty good chance it will still click and put you in a good mood.

An embarrassment of a movie that shows how deliriously unfunny the former Saturday Night Live star can be with sub-par material.

One of the best non-comic book action films I've seen in a while.

Crash (2004)
The film isn't, by any means, unpleasant to watch, though it is a shamelessly derivative button-pusher.

Exceptionally Solondz-esque; incredibly impressive.

Human Touch (2004)

An exquisitely shot period piece with enough filthy dialogue to make A Dirty Shame seems rather pedestrian.

With few exceptions, one might get the impression that Penn and Kidman were never on the set at the same time.

Fever Pitch (2005)
A thin shell of Hornby's original work, with a typical threadbare rom-com shoehorned into it, like an eight-hundred pound monster trying to cram itself into a size 30 jacket.

Enjoyable for everyone except those who think Kenneth Starr investigation was actually fair or balanced.
