Perfect 77 Points 2009

TFB, tremendously entertaining, provocatively insightful, plus it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it: TV gets no better than Glee. The pilot begs the same question from me as from every other critic: Can they keep this up? ‘Cause they’re cruising at a very high level right from the out…

Sing Street
Perfect 83 Points 2016

Sing Street is a perfect rock-n-roll movie, set around a band who defies authority, gets popular and wins The Girl. She’s played by Lucy Boynton, who makes an indelible first impression – ruby lips half-parted, cigarette hanging out one side. She turns out to have a tough situation herself, add…

Win Win
Really Great 88 Points 2011

Win Win has become such a cliche, yet is anything but in the entirely winning movie of that title. Cleverly mining today’s uneven economy, the uneasy equality of modern marriages, the unjust world of neglected kids, and not least, the under-appreciated sport of high school wrestling, Win Win

Really Great 66 Points 1986

Some hamminess and a novelty title slightly sully Francis Ford Coppola’s sexy-sweet Sixties comedy. Otherwise, it’s a lock for most likely to succeed – LOL, saucy, smart, sophisticated and star-powered.

A brilliant high school movie, told looking backwards, its conceit is to send Kathleen Tu…

More Than a Game
Really Great 83 Points 2008

Ain’t no better basketball movie than this boys-to-men documentary about LeBron James and his brothers-in-hoops. Even better, More Than a Game can be enjoyed equally well by non-basketball fans because it’s also a brilliant and touching portrait of half a dozen contemporary African-American mal…

Really Great 158 Points 2007

Fresh, funny, snarky, and quick as a whip, Juno is bound to become a cult classic, funnier the more times you watch it. Along with Superbad and Knocked Up, Juno defines a new era in youth comedies: movies that …

Superbad is still super funny, super filthy and super telling. That last is somewhat inadvertent, but the movie is more than just a lens into the fetid minds of unsupervised boys. The porn-powered self-absorption it observes among millennials dates it as Origin of the Snowflakes. "Just how I …

Poignance, glory, Denzel: three ingredients that make Titans a great football movie. Poignant as in funny and affecting, glorious as in achieving great and meaningful victories, Denzel as in pure movie star charisma.

When the Game Stands Tall pegs several meters: football movies – coach movies – Bay Area movies. Arguably the greatest Football Movie ever, it is surely the first great Bay Area Football Movie. It profiles an all-time great football coach: Coach Bob Ladouceur of Concord’s legendary De La Salle…
