Latest Review Additions:
XXX: State of the Union Review (in Film )
With the exception of a bullet train at infinite speed and the dialogue, which gave Speedman and Dafoe the worst lines of the film, the film is appealing because Cube and Jackson are worth watching.

Kingdom of Heaven Review (in Film )
The film revels in its desire to be the next great epic, but it merely falls to a solid somewhat banal period piece of excellent bloody sword and arrow play in numerous battles.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Review (in Film )
Hitchhiker's is a breath of fresh air.  It’s an inventive escape from the recent batch of uncreative, dispassionate science fiction films..

The Year of the Yao Review (in Film )
The Year of the Yao is a tremendously entertaining film. It’s easily the best basketball film I’ve seen in years.

Beauty Shop Review (in Film )
While some of the jokes take some time to get a chuckle, Latifah and the cast more than make up for it by bringing in their own comedic style and making the film enjoyable and worthy of being a spinoff.

Guess Who Review (in Film )
Times have definitely changed because Ashton Kutcher is no Sidney Poitier, but Bernie Mac pretty much holds the film and the politics together in this mildly entertaining film.

Miss Congeniality 2 Review (in Film )
With her next sequel, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, not only is it worse than "Speed 2", but it lacks the spark and charm that made the original cute and fun to enjoy.
