All reviews by Grade

(C) Battle for Terra 3D

MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
The animation may be three-dimensional but the story is one-dimensional in this dull saga of humans invading an alien planet -- from the perspective of the aliens. I suppose it is actually the hum...

(C) Battle: Los Angeles

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School

Destined to be remembered primarily as yet another step toward closing the gap between games and movies, the essence of "Battle: Lost Angeles" is a lot of boom-boom and a bunch of "ooo-rah." An...

(C) Beerfest

MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The boys of Broken Lizard have no shame. That's what their fans like about them.

There’s something quant, cute and even endearing (stick with me here) about their more innocent jokes, the...

(C) Beyond Borders

MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
An important and affecting story about relief workers gets buried under a syrupy romance in "Beyond Borders," which has Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen gazing longingly at each other across starving ...

(C) The Big Year

MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
"The Big Year" would be a lot better if it didn't try so hard to be The Big Movie.   This over-Hollywood-ized take on the real-life story of passionate-to-obsessed birders (don't say "bird-watche...

(C) The Black Dahlia

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Director Brian de Palma is all about the look and the mood and paying tribute to the classic old movies he loves. He loves them so much he crawls inside them. He imitates them like an art student...

(C) Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius

MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
Bobby Jones was a great man and a great golfer. He deserves a better movie than this one, as clumsy as its title.

Jones may be the greatest golfer who ever lived. He's the only one to win...

(C) The Bounty Hunter

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Jennifer Aniston is a beautiful and talented woman, but this film had me thinking some very mean thoughts about her, thoughts like, "She is too old for this kind of movie" and "Probably not a good ...

(C) The Box

Genre: Fantasy
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
I loved "Donnie Darko" and was eager to listen to the DVD commentary by writer/director Richard Kelly. But I had to turn it off after the first ten minutes. Kelly explained too much, and his expl...

(C) Bride Wars

MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
Movies thrive on smackdowns. "Clash of the Titans." "Alien vs. Predator." "Freddy vs. Jason." "Kramer vs. Kramer." Rocky vs. Apollo Creed. And now, Bridezilla vs. Bridezilla. Kate Hudson (wh...

(C) Broken City

MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(C) Bruno

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
Sacha Baron Cohen is back, and once again he has created an outrageously offensive character from another country who crosses the ocean to interact with unsuspecting Americans so that we can laugh ...

(C) The Bucket List

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
It's The Shawshank Redemption...
