All reviews by Grade

(C+) Field of Dreams

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner), who grew up in New York and went to college at Berkeley, stands in the middle of his first Iowa corn crop and hears a voice say, "If you build it, he will come." He be...

(C+) The Filth and the Fury

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
More than 20 years ago, the Sex Pistols made one album, were let go by two record companies, one after only one day, and had the number one song in the UK, though it was so controversial it could n...

(C+) First Daughter

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
This one is right off the conveyer belt. It's numbingly predictable due to a screenplay straight from the "how to write a script" formula book, which may be forgiveable, but it is also thuddingly ...

(C+) The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Preschool
First things first -- it is better than the original, famously troubled 1994 version that sank under the weight of too many screenwriters (reportedly over 30) and too many commercial tie-ins. This...

(C+) Flyboys

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Has this script been in a drawer somewhere since 1942?

It sure seems like it. It's "inspired" by the absorbing true story of Americans who enlisted with the French armed forces in World Wa...

(C+) The Forgotten

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
This year's most popular movie theme -- memory -- turns up once again, though this time what someone, um, forgot was the script.

Oh there are situations here, but I would not say that they ...

(C+) Four Brothers

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
We start out on the side of the four adopted brothers who reunite to find the people who murdered their mother, but they lose us in this over-violent and under-sincere story that strays from justic...

(C+) Freedomland

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
This movie’s inability to live up to its potential is nearly as epic as its misleading title. In other hands, "Freedomland" might have played a jazz-like riff of personal loss and moving vignett...

(C+) Friday After Next

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This third in Ice Cube’s “Friday” series has something to offend everyone, with highly politically incorrect jokes in just about every category. On the other hand, it is better than the last ...

(C+) Full Frontal

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Somewhere on the continuum between complexity and incoherence lies the latest film from Steven Soderbergh. After big-time Hollywood critical and box office success with the glossy, classy "Erin Br...
