Shades of Jacques Tati, but far, far less boring. (Original title: Hors de Prix)

The Fall

I see no harm in building a plot around filming (and thereby preserving) gorgeous sites from around the world. (I counted three I've seen myself, and feel damn lucky for that.)

24: Redemption

Interesting what popular opinion (and Senate discussions) can do to a TV series.

About two minutes into the film, I completely forgot that Sean Penn actually wasn't Harvey Milk.

Under the Same Moon

The song about Superman being an illegal alien says it all. (If you can ignore the crappy subtitles.) (Original title: La Misma Luna)

Tropic Thunder

Yes, Mr. Cruise, your best part was in Magnolia. Glad to see you figured that out again.

The Year of Living Dangerously

To me Billy Kwan's character seems a know-it-all. Pride goeth, and all that, or in this case maybe the veil has simply lifted.

The Spiderwick Chronicles

Five books squished into one movie? Never a good idea-- will always feel rushed.

Heroes: Season 2

Every time Sylar looks directly at the camera and utters some trite line, I curse the serial format that keeps me watching.
