Latest Review Additions:
Hustle & Flow Review (in Film )
"Hustle and Flow" is a moving, entertaining, and gritty tale filled with explosion and laughter. Howard not only has a career making performance in the film, but the entire cast is phenomenal.

Happy Endings Review (in Film )
Happy Endings is an extraordinary film.  Director and writer Don Roos has delivered the best film about relationships that I’ve seen in some time.

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory Review (in Film )
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is quite simply, wonderful; a brilliantly imagined story that will win old fans and new fans.

The Fantastic Four Review (in Film )
Fantastic Four is terribly miscast.  It’s poorly written, visually uninteresting, and worst of all, boring.

Cronicas Review (in Film )
It’s wonderful to see the new guard of Spanish filmmakers and actors working together to show different stories from places ignored by Hollywood.

Miss Congeniality 2 DVD Review (in Film )
It’s wonderful to see the new guard of Spanish filmmakers and actors working together to show different stories from places ignored by Hollywood.

War of the Worlds Review (in Film )
War of the Worlds is essentially a popcorn flick with no substance.  It doesn’t have the great adventure feeling that Spielberg has accomplished so masterfully in his other films.

Batman Begins Review (in Film )
"Batman Begins" is one of the best transitions from the comic book to the big screen. Not only is it spectacular, but it is truly amazing and embodied by such a talented cast.

Casino DVD Review (in Film )
A chock full of deleted scenes and commentaries are added to this gem of a film.

Brother to Brother DVD Review (in Film )
Rodney Evans’ film is one small part of a long struggle to open the cellar door and let in the light.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith Review (in Film )
Together, Pitt and Jolie make the perfect on-screen couple because this film is the best action film for both sexes. It offers romance and comedy that should delight the fans of these stars.

The Honeymooners Review (in Film )
"The Honeymooners" is a dismal remake of a classic TV show that makes one go back to Blockbusters to rent the original show just for the laughs.

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.
