Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
Lady In The Water (in Film )

With Lady in The Water, an adaptation of a bedtime story Shyamalan authored for his daughters, Shyamalan has succeeded

Little Man (in Film )

This critic couldn’t find anything about this creepy retread to recommend to my readers.

Time to Leave (in Film )

‘Time to Leave” is perhaps his most realistic film to date. It gives the audience reason to have compassion for the characters and reflect on their own lives.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest(in Film )

Despite all the eye-popping distractions, Pirates 2 remains, at heart, a Johnny Depp vehicle, where the ever-prancing pirate can be relied upon to steal every scene in his own inimitable fashion.

The Devil Wears Prada(in Film )

You fall in love with this cast as they embrace, flaunt, and mock the industry they live for, humanizing this highlighted world in the eyes of millions.

Superman Returns(in Film )

Not only is ?Superman Returns? the best of the series, but it serves as a companion to Superman II. Filled with emotion, fantasy and adventure, Singer incorporates the right flavor that will appeal to all ages.

WAIST DEEP (in Film )

What could have been a good urban action thriller has turned into a clichéd film with a weak script.

WASSUP ROCKERS (in Film )

“Wassup Rockers” is an interesting movie and solidly entertaining, but I hope he can move in a different direction and show some range in his themes.

CLICK (in Film )

A touching, and altogether charming notion, this films brings together a charming cast of individuals to relay a message about love, life, family, careers, and the order in which we prioritize them.

wSyriana DVD (in Film )

Politically-paranoid, if well-intentioned, this disjointed message movie doesn’t really do much more than indict the usual suspects.

 

wThe Lake House (in Film )

A little drawn out at times, this film might have been a full success if only met with a little tweaking. 

 

wONLY HUMAN (Seres Queridos) (in Film )

Laced with plenty of funny moments, Only Human is a rare, optimistic ray of hope about the prospects of Jewish-Muslim relations.A rare, optimistic ray of hope about the prospects of Jewish-Muslim relations.

 

wLowercity(CIDADE BAIXA) (in Film )

Lower City is as visually-captivating as "City of God", but this flick is actually a more engaging film, given its alternately steamy and sophisticated storyline, combined with the palpable chemistry generated among its three lead characters.
 

w Dave Chappelle's Block Party DVD (in Film )

This concert flick’s strength lies in its inspired musical performances by a host of hip-hop artists who are not at all shy about sharing their sharp-edged political perspective.
 

w The Heart of the Game (in Film )

The Heart of the Game might best be thought of as a female version Hoop
Dreams.
 

w Cars (in Film )

Pixar strikes gold once again with “Cars”. It is a wonderfully imaginative film and filled with just the right amount of nostalgia and sentimentality to win over audiences of all ages.
