Wallander: Series 1

For someone who admires Swedish culture and society, it's so odd to watch them tear it down themselves.

Shrek the Third

When the best joke in the entire film is how difficult it is to pronounce Worcestershire, it's my fond hope that they stop here and film no more.

Pineapple Express

"Danger, danger, trees, tree, tree, squirrel." Think that pretty much sums it up.

Star Trek: Season 1 (restored)

Melodrama is high, but oh, the plots and effects used in sci-fi shows since this show aired.

Kings: Season 1

Unnecessarily complicated towards the end, even as it continued to engage both the brain and soul.

Duh, much like the Hollywood version except a lot less of those spectacularly spooky Cinovation special effects.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Successful Attempt at Doing Something Different.

Reign Over Me

Perhaps the best part of the film is what they left out. Watch the special feature 2-minute jam session between Sandler and Cheadle.

Heavy-handed morality plays just simply stink. Even with Mark Ruffalo in them.

Rachel Getting Married

Raw and coherent and mercurial and multi-cultural and primal and hysterical and raw again. Most funnest dance party, too.

If this doesn't get Sam Rockwell more starring roles, maybe it's time to look into that plumbing career.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Increase: Sacha Baron Cohen. Increase: penguin madness. Decrease: eating other animals. Thank you.

Marley & Me

Do not watch this movie if you have recently had a pet put down. Repeat, do not.
