The Bumblebee Flies Anyway Review


Weak
Is it a thriller disguised as a weepy drama or a weepy drama disguised as a thriller?

An amnesiac teen (Wood) struggles to regain his memory... or does he??? By the time the deep dark secret is revealed, you may not care any more. And Janeane Garofalo as an experimental medical researcher is just about as inexplicable as the film's title.

You Can Count On Me Review


Excellent
You Can Count on Me is a film that, in true Sundance form, mixes the familiar with the unexpected. The Best Dramatic Film winner from this year's festival has some actors we've seen before (including Matthew Broderick) and some traditional storylines (single Mom's troubles, loner returns to hometown), but first-time writer-director Ken Lonergan adds just enough unpredictable dialogue and creativity to make this movie the real deal.

Belly Review


Terrible
Rappers shouldn't act, and actors shouldn't rap. Belly has plenty of both, making this predictable, ultra-violent, insulting story of gangland drug dealers as bad as movies get. Avoid at all costs.

The 24 Hour Woman Review
