Slumdog Millionaire   1/05/09
by Swedish Chef
I don't wanna reduce myself to just throwing around a bunch of critic buzz words here, but I'd say contrived, predictable, silly and ridiculous would all do the trick in accurately pinning down this one.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button   12/27/08
by Swedish Chef
...could've been a great mini series or something, but as a feature length movie it falls short. It's got some parts that work, some parts that fail outright and ultimately it didn't do a lot for me.

No Country for Old Men   6/18/08
by Swedish Chef
No Country For Old Men is such brutal piece of literature to translate to the big screen. It's definitely got its share of cinematic moments, but the bread and butter of the novel is Ed Tom Bell's musings on a world-gone-wrong that precede every chapter of the book.

by Swedish Chef
It tends to drag in spots and I get the feeling it thinks it's more perceptive than it really is. It's still a nice little film and if you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth checking out.

Ghost World   2/18/08
by Swedish Chef
[I]Ghost World[/I] is a timeless, painfully authentic representation of teenage existence that should be required viewing for any high schooler wary of the world before them.

by Swedish Chef

Teeth   2/02/08
by Swedish Chef
The film's concept alone should at least make it worthy of a rental whenever it hits the shelves. And flawed as it may be, [I]Teeth[/I] is easily one of the most unique, haunting and unabashedly strange film experiences I have ever had.

Lars and the Real Girl   1/23/08
by Swedish Chef
For all its whimsy, [I]Lars and the Real Girl[/I] is still a life-affirming, immensely positive, easily enjoyable and magnificently sweet movie that deserves to find an audience.
