  1. This isn't a straight-on comedy by a long shot. It's a quirky character study that will make everyone in the audience laugh at different places.
  2. Ultimately comes off as so restrained as to be detached and almost as chilly as LaBute's darker films -- not exactly what one would want from a story about a love so strong that it echoes through the ages.
  3. This is a big, silly film. Is it full of explosions and one-liners? Of course. Is it entertaining? Of course.
  4. Anyone with a weak heart or a queasy stomach should stay away. In fact, most everyone everywhere should stay away. But if you still want to see Irreversible, be prepared to see images that will upset and disturb you for a long, long time. Be prepared to be shaken to the very core.
  5. What ultimately keeps The Weather Man from being a better film than it is that it doesn't no when to quit.

    An interesting idea, thoughtfully acted and visually intriguing. However, it is nearly undone by a lead character that fails to represent the general idea that the film is allegedly about.
  6. This is a timeless tale; the time period is irrelevant as the story is a profoundly personal one about trying to reject the strong internal drive for vengeance.

    It's a tough one to recommend to everyone. Just know now this isn't a horror film as they're making it out to be nor is it a true return to form for Friedkin. Even so, it's worth seeing but perhaps as a DVD rental further down the road.
  7. The mystery behind Jandek is still intact at the end of the eighty-eight minute-long film, but it’s diminished substantially because you feel like you know too much.
  8. Frida favors us with plenty of color, a feast of eye candy. As food for the soul, however...there are always her paintings.
  9. If you're hard up for raunchy college humor, this is your ticket right here.

    Brimming with sincere intentions and a few interesting thoughts. It brings a rare sort of realism to the movie world.
  10. A courageous film, especially from a first-time director, and deserves all the audience support it can attract. It’s a People Story, and it’s About Something. However, it’s also something of a heavy sit.

    It's rare to see Luke Wilson in such a serious role. He does an admirable job of ignoring his mostly comedic background but the real scene-stealer is Frank Whaley.
  11. Let's be honest; a great deal of the sh-- you find funny when you're high really isn't (as anyone who's smoked a few bowls and laughed like a hyena to "Assy McGee" can attest). So hopefully nobody will be too disappointed when I tell them that "Express" is largely hit and miss.
  12. Isn’t a bad film, simply an unspectacular one, which might be a more damaging statement.

    Kutcher gives a surprisingly proficient performance as does Heche who is the shining star of the film.
  13. A handful of nifty battle scenes and some decent performances aren't quite enough to make Kingdom memorable.
  14. How much you join in will depend on how big a fan you are of the collegiate comedy formula, how many times you've seen "Animal House" and "Caddyshack," and how much you hate Long in those smarmy Mac commercials.
  15. It's worth a look, even taking into consideration the lack of zombies.

    Rashid's love of cinema is obvious in every frame. He interweaves nostalgia with modern subject matter. Pace and comic timing are perfect.

    Despite the fact that we are watching Reynolds do the same schtick yet again, director Roger Kumble never lets him outlast a joke or take a gimmick too far. The plot is nothing short of formulaic but what comedy of this nature isn’t these days?

    If you can’t laugh at stuff like this, there are still a few days left in the theatrical run of “Santa Clause 2”. I hear the reindeer are horny as hell.
  16. It’s shocking how much Dark Blue hates cops.
  17. Intermittently amusing.
  18. It's technologically more advanced, far more thrilling and there's infinitely more dinos per minute.
  19. Hard-headed to the end, the three women in Face prove that if nothing else, stubborness and inflexibilty run in the family.
  20. A faithful translation of the character and one of his more memorable tales on the page; it satisfies as an adventure and as a more intimate story.
  21. At the end of the day, though, this is Charlie Kaufman's movie and I'm not sure he proves quite the visionary puppetmaster many in the media are making him out to be.
  22. Your enjoyment of Alpha Dog may very well depend on how put off you are by these facts, as well as how much you buy Timberlake in his role, and how in the mood you are to sit through "River’s Edge" set in the "Entourage" universe.
