    As much as you'd like the characters to become better people and beat Jigsaw's game, there is also a strong desire simply to watch violent spectacle. And somehow, there just isn't enough of the latter.

    As a matter of fact, Initial D is an anti-car racing film. It's not about thrills; it's about how to perfect the art of drifting, philosophy, and how to transcend the human condition.

    Isn't a bad film per se--it’s just an empty film.

    Evening”has so much going for it. A great cast, amazing visuals, and solid directing throughout. So why did I leave the film saying aloud to the parking lot, "I didn't like it."

    An amusing and timely distraction.

    Coupled with decent acting but average cinematography and editing, Not Easily Broken hums more fittingly to the tune of a LifeTime television event.

    Absolutely--four out of five stars for being cuter, funnier, and, besides, the character design far exceeded my expectations.

    So think of it this way: Miracle at St. Anna is a Spike Lee joint that possesses a European texture in the vein of Guillermo Del Toro and Jean Pierre-Jeunet. Imaginative, thought-provoking, and intense.

    I'd like to recognize Russell Gewirtz for a screenplay that boasts humor, an impressive plot twist, and for setting up plenty of room for De Niro and Pacino to get their grooves back in order.

    When a film is more conducive to a scholarly dissection than a consumerist examination, the film is incredibly clever, pragmatic, or pretentious. In the case of Domino, it's all of the above.

    Packs a full plate of gasps and giggles.

    The major weakness in Jumper is the piling on of action and narrative in the last ten to twelve minutes. It's as though the editor was rushing to meet a deadline and did the best he could with too much footage.

    Whether you’re a casual or an ardent follower of M. Night Shyamalan's films, The Happening could alienate or dominate your thinking cap. Remember--it's perfectly acceptable to laugh one second and shriek the next.

    Peretz's film continuously subverts the audience's expectations of what should likely happen given genre conventions.
    • 30 Metascore

    Conveys a much louder political message and the implementation of violence reflects as much.

    The Collector’s destructive behavior enters the realm of the ridiculous before it ever touches the land of evil-badassness.

    Fails as a sequel because we’re not in the 90s anymore. Gone are the days when characters could answer questions with questions and hypothetical situations and still sound clever and cool.
    • 25 Metascore

    It’s mostly eighty-four minutes of puns, double entendres, and Freudian slips.

    I didn't hate this film. I didn't find it to be a waste of time or brain waves. Given the reasons I saw the film, I suppose I'm 50% disappointed.

    A chick flick in the purest sense--it's not about men or falling in love--and is quite funny.

    To be sure, The Love Guru is incredibly funny. Side-splitting laughter only stops when the movie does, so don't expect it to linger all the way to the parking lot.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 60 Stina Chyn
    The cast is genuine in their emotions, the film depicts them that way, and the camera doesn’t feel compelled to go hand-held crazy--which is refreshing.

    If you have nothing more stimulating to do on a Friday night, Underclassman could provide the entertainment--not enlightenment--you seek.

    Although it looks cool, appearances aren’t everything.
