September 2005
Week of September 26th through Sept. 30th


Latest Additions:
Roll Bounce (in Film )
Far from perfect, as there are several clichés within the film, and some of the characters go undeveloped, but overall, the film offers enough wit and charm that should please all that come to see it.
Flightplan (in Film )
You know what you're getting with Jodie Foster and Peter Sarsgaard, and they don't disappoint.
The Constant Gardener Review (in Film )
The Constant Gardner is an intellectual film with a purpose.  It is thoughtful and provocative, but not nearly the suspenseful thriller it’s made out to be.

The Man Review (in Film )
"The Man" is another black and white buddy movie where the jokes are flat and the talent is wasted.

Carlito's Way: Rise To Power Review (in Film )
If you're looking for a action packed, gunslinging gangsta this is not the film.

The Baxter Review (in Film )
Summer romantic comedies are usually quite painful to sit through, but The Baxter is a breeze.

The Memory of a Killer Review (in Film )
Director Erik Van Looy, has put together such a well crafted film with an amazing performance by its lead actor,
Jan Decleir.

The 40 Year-Old Virgin Review (in Film )
“The 40 Year-Old Virgin” is insanely filled with enough jokes and uproarious scenes that you will need a box of tissues to wipe away the tears of laughter.

Red Eye Review (in Film )
Not only is the film shorter than 90 minutes, a rarity these days for a drama, but McAdams and Murphy are very combative and appealing in their roles.

Four Brothers Review (in Film )
With Mark Wahlberg leading the charge, “Four Brothers” is a high powered entertaining film filled with enough wit and emotion.

The Skeleton Key Review (in Film )
"The Skeleton Key"  presents a clever twist that you rarely see in Hollywood films these days, and that’s the essence of the film that will have you talking about the twists and turns of it until you figure it out.

The Great Raid Review (in Film )
The Great Raid is not a popcorn action film. It's a good film and is worth spending your money to see.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo Review (in Film )
This is the kind of movie where you leave all sophistication at the door and allow yourself to be inundated by stupidity.

Stealth Review (in Film )
Stealth goes in unexpected directions and turns out to be a tremendously entertaining film.

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.

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 Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Review (in Film )
The Year of the Yao Review (in Film )
Beauty Shop Review (in Film )
Guess Who Review (in Film )

Latest Additions:
Racing Against The Clock Review (in Film )
A heartwarming documentary of women empowerment.
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.

Imaginary Heroes Review (in Film )
Downfall Review (in Film )
