45 29% Iron Man 2 (2010) - Apr 28, 2010
"Entertainment-wise decent, but neither as charming nor as packed with memorable moments as the original. And what's worse is that it doesn't really bring something new, something different or fresh to the genre - or the franchise. Quite indifferent, really - which is a word that you should NEVER have to use when describing a movie with Downey jr., Rourke AND Johansson (!)"
75 77% Toy Story 3 (2010) - Aug 29, 2010
"The plot formula seems a little generic the third time around, but these characters are simply impossible not to love. Charming, partly moving and a more than decent swan song for the trilogy that propelled the magic kingdom of Pixar... and hey - Totoro!"
70 67% Easy A (2010) - Dec 05, 2010
"Stanley fucking Tucci, yet again I bow to your brilliance. And hey, the rest of the movie is close to equally sharp and hilarious - especially in the first half. Golden Globes, here's your comedy/musical category favourite."
35 19% A Beautiful Mind (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"How did this EVER win the Best Picture Oscar?! I mean, come on! It was up against the spectacular Moulin Rouge, the best part of the LOTR trilogy, the unforgettable drama of In The Bedroom and yet another great Altman ensemble piece, Gosford Park. Four splendid films - two of them masterful. But no, let's award the plain, sobby biopic by the dude from Happy Days and penned by the writer of Batman & Robin. This will forever be beyond me, AMPAS. "
100 99% Dancer in the Dark (2000) - Oct 04, 2008
"Never before or since has I been so deeply affected emotionally by a motion picture. I literally cried like a baby - on and off - for months, and my 15-year-old self was taught a lesson about how powerful movies can be. Dancer in the Dark made the seed for my neverending love for and interest in film as an artform blossom like no other. Hell, it changed my life. "
40 24% Les Misérables (2012) - Jan 12, 2013
"Deep respect for Hooper's guts and willingness to take risks but, sadly, his version of what in my opinion is the greatest of the great stage musicals feels like a strangely rushed and emotionally forced tv-series. The characters are blown up in your face spilling their hearts out before you even get to know them, and though the method of live singing brings an authentic feeling it also drains the melody from too many of the songs. Oh, and Hathaway? Crybaby of the year."
95 97% Atonement (2007) - Oct 04, 2008
"Epic yet intimate, 'Atonement' is a both timeless and haunting dissection of the hardship of passion, the many faces of truth and the quest for redemption. Though technically flawless - in particular the stunning cinematography, score and costumes could all be viewed as separate pieces of first class art - the shiniest gem is the truly spectacular Saoirse Ronan providing the breakthrough of the decade."
55 40% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) - Jul 08, 2011
"Finally. After ten years of foreplay the saga of Harry Potter reaches its cinematic climax - and it's pretty damn explosive. Part 2 is pure fights, chases and wizardry war - an avalanche of action. Sadly, the big row falls short compared to modern classic spectacles like Saving Private Ryan's Omaha Beach or The Two Towers' Helm's Deep, and - even worse - director Yates loses sight of his characters and with them the much praised heart and soul of the franchise. An epic letdown."
70 67% Brave (2012) - Sep 01, 2012
"Liked the Obviously Lesbian Princess part better than the Grizzly Mom half which felt like a 2.0 version of 'Brother Bear'. Anyway, a decent Pixar pic is still way preferable to most animated features. "
60 47% Moneyball (2011) - Dec 19, 2011
"Sorkin's tightly written script never dissects the main premise in a way that baseball novices - like myself - fully comprehend what the heck Pitt's tense coach Beane is changing about baseball. It's something important about numbers and statistics, and it's wrapped up in intellectual nuances without the typical cliched pathos of sports movies - thanks! - but it never really got to me. Thus, no home run."
