Latest Review Additions:
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King (in Film)
They did save the best for last. Return of the King does an excellent job of delivering the journey part of the story, probably more than any film ever made.
The Missing (in Film)
Cate Blanchett and Tommy Lee Jones prove once more why they are the best. Every time I see them on film, I know that I’m getting an excellent performance.

Reviewed by Julian Roman
The Haunted Mansion (in Film)
"Haunted Mansion" doesn't fall under the terms of hilarious, humorous or even amusing. It's full of jokes, but the biggest one is on us and perhaps Murphy himself.

Reviewed by Ron Henriques
In America (in Film)
In America accomplishes that rare feat of producing a haunting, dreaml ike narrative without sacrificing any of the elements that ground a film in realism.It’s one of the most emotionally engaging films I have ever seen.

Elf (in Film)
Elf is such a delight that if you don’t see it, you may wind up on the naughty list.

The Matrix Revolution (in Film)
What people want as a bubble-gum, cliché-filled happy ending is not the final bow to this masterpiece.

Girlhood (in Indie)
Girlhood is an amazing, sobering but must-see look at the way many young people are now coming-of-age and poses the question of how this country can work to give them back the childhoods they deserve..

Shattered Glass (in Indie)
Shattered Glass is a superbly written movie. It's very entertaining, intriguing, and smart.

Radio (in Film)
Cuba Gooding Jr.’s portrayal as James Robert Kennedy makes “Radio” an uplifting film where several lessons are learned.

Scary Movie (in Film)
Scary Movie 3 is definitely the better of the three films, and shockingly so, even though there is not one Wayans family member in this one.

Reviewed by Edgar Arce
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (in Film)
I am happy to report that this film lives up to the original and it delivers. It’s also sporting something horror films these days are seriously lacking, SCARES. It is a gift to the horror fan who is all “Scream-ed” out.

Reviewed by Bruno Soto
Pieces of April (in Film)
It’s a film that will you have laughing and crying and leaves you feeling good in the end.

Veronica Guerin (in Film)
Not only does Cate Blanchett looks like the murdered journalist, but she captures the essence of who she was and what she accomplished with a breathtaking performance.

Eastwood has put together a great murder mystery film without it having any clichéd moments from the genre.
