(3.5 Stars). Technically near perfect, but ‘Where’s the beef?’
(4.5 Stars) Interesting and Creative approach to some very abstract questions. Excellent film.
(4 Stars) A look at a troubled man and a tough time in Hollywood.
(5 Stars) A wonderful feminist approach that is perfect holiday entertainment. A well crafted movie.
(4.5 Stars) A sometimes difficult movie to watch, but with powerful moments. The boundaries between love and hate are thin.
(3.5 Stars) I suppose if you are a Star Wars buff, you will be disappointed. But for the rest of us, it is just plain fun.
(4 Stars) A technical masterpiece that overwhelms the story.
(4.5 Stars) Difficult to watch, especially right now. But perhaps necessary.
(2 Stars) Might be good for families, but most adults are going to ask ‘Who asked her to return?’
(4.5 Stars) A wonderful romance with terrific music. Another one of the better movies this year.
(3.5 Stars) With all the trademarks of Wes Anderson, this movie is fun to watch while it puzzles the mind.
(5 Stars) One of my favorite movies of the year, a black man joins the KKK. Although it sounds like a comedy, this is a Spike Lee movie full of important messages.
(4 Stars) A visually and aurally stunning action movie with a tightly constructed plot line that you can actually follow.
