Rating History

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Riveting and beautiful, the second Planet of the Apes film ups its already good predecessor with intelligence and intimacy. This movie seems to have everything going for it: it is a technological achievement, gorgeous in every frame, smart, narratively complex (at least for a summer flick), and human. I can't believe I missed out on this franchise for so long, but I'm glad I've seen it now-and I won't soon forget it.

Munich
Munich (2005)
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

People have a hard time with this movie because they have a hard time understanding it as a Spielberg film-or maybe that's not it, maybe they have a hard time with it because it seems too on the nose. And as far as it top layer goes, that may be fair-it's pretty overt about its Shakespearean claim that blood begets blood. But as you might expect from one of the smartest directors working today (and of all time), Munich has more than that. Munich is a film about sympathy with visceral hatred and overwhelming passion-understanding how not everyone is wrong but rather, as Ebert points out, everyone is right.

Hoop Dreams
Hoop Dreams (1994)
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Following the lives of two Chicago boys with basketball promise, Hoop Dreams is one of the most intimate, eye-opening, and sobering documentaries I've seen.

Barton Fink
Barton Fink (1991)
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Complex and intriguing as all Coen films are, I am destined to come back to this film and continuing trying to pry open its mysteries and layers.

Dead Man Walking
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The politics of this crime drama are lackluster, but its performances and heart are not to be outdone.
