Latest Review Additions:
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Review (in Film )
We may not all enjoy films on romance, or some young girls life’s journey, but what the film ultimately does is remind us of our basic human conditions, putting life into perspective yet again.

Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith Review (in Film )
Sith is the best of the prequels and a magnificent ending to cinema's most popular films.

Mad Hot Ballroom Review (in Film )
MHB is a film about adolescence against the backdrop of ballroom dancing. It's a heartwarming film, where there are no losers but winners across the board.

Crash Review (in Film )
Although some the stories in the film seem contrived, the actors portraying the roles are not only convincing but perhaps give their best performance to date.

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.
