Time Out

You are not your job,
Identity can be frail,
A modern conflict.


Secret Things

Tries to be too much,
A laughable harbinger,
At least there's cute chicks.

Clean

A lot like Yoko,
Drugs, more drugs, and rock and roll,
Redemption or show?

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Classic pulp fiction,
Narrative device that works,
Self-effacing script.

Syriana

A complex issue,
Script makes it accessible,
My job's so boring.

The Boys of Baraka

A concept program,
Help those who truly need it,
Now what will they do?

Running Scared

Hip script and young cast,
It so wants to be trendy,
Just derivative.

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

Modern cowboy tale,
About more than just friendship,
Something that defines.

5X2

Divorce can be tough,
Life occurs in the middle,
Why did they hook up?

Superman Returns

It's been 20 years,
but, thanks to Bryan Singer,
Superman is back.

Munich

It asks good questions,
A little heavy handed,
Typical Spielberg.

Along Came Polly

A silly movie,
Thank god for Alec Baldwin,
Generic ending.

The White Countess

Romantic movie,
The disabled are sexy,
The female is not.

Shopgirl

Wrote it for himself,
The other male is vapid,
No character depth.

The Passenger

Art house reissue,
Hear minimal dialogue,
Watch it try too hard.

Over the Hedge

Surprisingly good.
Great voice work, good story, and
Safe for the young 'uns.

Infernal Affairs 2

This prequel was great.
I still prefer the first film,
But this one's quite good.

X-Men 3: The Last Stand

X2 raised the bar.
This one missed the mark, for sure.
Just wait for Netflix.

Frida

Painful images,
Amazing use of color,
A real art movie.

Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic

I really like her,
Which makes this so difficult,
I'm disappointed.

The Boondock Saints

Those silly Irish,
Always drinking and fighting,
Mediocre flick.
