Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
w United 93 (in Film )
Be prepared for an emotional and realistic ride on United 93.
 
w Clean (in Film )
A worthwhile examination of the crash landing of a delusional junkie with an attitude who’s been behaving like a spoiled-rotten diva.
 
w Aeon Flux (in Film )
The film features a mind-bending, sci-fi plotline that is actually more engaging than that of your average futuristic adventure.
 
w Preaching to the Choir (in Film )
Preaching to the Choir features the same Prodigal Son plotline. Yet, this hastily-mounted, sloppily-edited production is so poorly executed that it fails to measure up to the original in terms of quality.
 
 
w Scary Movie 4 (in Film )
Zucker relies on the services of an expanded principal cast plus a boatload of celebrity cameos to keep his clever combination of slapstick, sight gags, and bodily-function humor unfolding at a rapid fire pace.
 
w Kinky Boots (in Film )
"Kinky Boots" is a heartwarming tale about the unlikely friendship forged between a black drag queen and the recently-engaged heir to a shoe factory fortune.
 
w Sisters in Law (in Film )
Sisters in Law packs a powerful punch by exposing the evils of a patriarchal culture inclined to look the other way whenever men oppress women.
 
w Irish Jam DVD (in Film )
This transparent romantic comedy unfolds fairly predictably, relying on lots of simplistically-drawn stereotypes at every turn, such as its portrayal of the Irish as hot-headed drunkards and blacks as superficial simpletons.
 
w Ellie Parker DVD (in Film )
The only flaw of this flick, which is admittedly amusing in spots, lies in its aforementioned poor quality cinematography which intermittently interferes with one’s ability to concentrate on an otherwise engaging story.
 
w Phat Girlz (in Film )
Phat Girlz fails to do a decent job of convincing the audience of its basic premise that being morbidly obese is a condition which deserves to be celebrated.
w 95 Miles To Go (in Film )
What makes 95 Miles to Go so appealing is how Ray Romano so effortlessly conveys the sense that he’s the same approachable guy offstage that you see on TV and onstage.
w ATL (in Film )
"ATL” does Atlanta by proud by taking a predictable story and adding music, humor, and romance in a simple tale of life in the hood. It’s an emotional, moving, and pleasure film for all to enjoy.
w BASIC INSTINCT 2 RISK ADDICTION (in Film )
An exciting start to what is sure to be a twisted, sexy thriller, the film badly disappoints. Sharon Stone’s reprisal of her role as Catherine Tramell is the only positive in this sequel.
w Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (in Film )
This film surpasses the original in every way.  It is much funnier and packed with clever double entendres that’ll whiz over the kids and hit their parents squarely in the funny bone. 
w Inside Man (in Film )
Inside Man” is his most commercial film to date and it’s his best film since “25th Hour”. Everything from the writing, the acting, the cinematography and the music works.
w Adventures of Brer Rabbit DVD (in Film )
A politically-correct adventure about a mischievous hare which can be safely shared with the kids, and ought to be enjoyed by young and old alike.
w Lonesome Jim (in Film )
Steve Buscemi steps behind the camera to direct a movie filled with folks every bit as quirky as the ones he’s personally portrayed onscreen.
w American Gun (in Film )
American Gun is far less gory than one might expect, given its subject-matter. It's a moving morality play indicting this nation for its ongoing love affair with the Second Amendment.
w Derailed DVD (in Film )
An amoral thriller strictly for those ready to see adultery as a cause celebre.
