3/4 El Mariachi (1992) Katherine Monk Not all of it works, but young Rodriguez understands the most important thing of all: keep people entertained, and you can get away with anything. EDIT

3.5/4 Go Fish (1994) Katherine Monk Troche's grainy and goofy picture explores a completely different perspective: that of a community. EDIT

1/4 Hard Promises (1991) Katherine Monk The movie is not incredibly bad, nor is it incredibly good. In fact, it is nothing much at all. EDIT

3/4 Lonely Hearts (1991) Katherine Monk While it's not brilliant, Lonely Hearts has a strange enough beat to keep it interesting. Roberts and D'Angelo pull silent truth from their characters using their bodies and facial expression. EDIT

3.5/4 Girlfight (2000) Katherine Monk Girlfight brings freshness and enthusiasm to a routine we've seen several times over. EDIT

3/5 Bhaji on the Beach (1993) Katherine Monk It's not always funny, its not always pretty it's not even consistently well-shot but thanks to a wonderful cast and sincere direction Bhaji an the Beach is a delightful film full of surprises that will stick in your heart like a deep-fried dumpling. EDIT

3.5/5 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Katherine Monk An elegant balance between light and dark, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo benefits from Fincher's ascetic treatment, and will silence any of the naysayers who felt the whole American version was little more than a money grab. EDIT

Rise of the Guardians (2012) Katherine Monk Lost in a dizzying sea of images that will no doubt dazzle the senses, the viewer will cling to the handful of scenes where we're treated to dramatic dialogue and character development -- because they're surprisingly solid. EDIT

Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) Katherine Monk Easily the worst outing in an already mediocre movie series. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2012
3/5 Collaborator (2011) Katherine Monk A solid, character-based drama that speaks to the disappointments of middle age and mortality in general, Collaborator doesn't let anyone off the hook -- not even the viewer. EDIT

The Dictator (2012) Katherine Monk Not all comedy can be redeemed with gooey sentiment or a man hug in the final frames, but The Dictator makes good on its promise of a raunchy comedy with a worthy message, and delivers lowbrow yuks with high-minded intellect. EDIT

4/5 The Muppets (2011) Katherine Monk An altogether charming, smart and strangely moving little movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2012
Like Crazy (2011) Katherine Monk This movie creates an emotional collage of those moments that eventually decide the fate of every couple. Sweet, subtle and perfectly acted, Like Crazy is easy to fall for. EDIT

3/5 Friends With Benefits (2011) Jay Stone There's some fun in this if you stick with it. EDIT

Bart Got a Room (2008) Katherine Monk Hecker's film finds a charm that eludes most movies dependent on misplaced prostitutes, bedroom sex noises and male insecurities. EDIT
