THE CREEK (DVD)

2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 85 minutes

“The Creek” wants to have its film logic and eat it, too. And because it breaks its own rules, it keeps the audience guessing in all the wrong ways…

SACRILEGE

1 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 9 minutes

More a filmed actor’s workshop than a short film, “Sacrilege” goes nowhere…

THE LAST SUNRISE

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 11 minutes

The actors aren’t acting so much as chewing all the scenery they can get their hands on, and the abysmal dialogue gives them very little to work with in the first place…

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2006

Welcome to the Facebook generation’s response to Hurricane Katrina…

RANK

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: PG
Running Time: 90 minutes

The personal stories of these new-school cowboys are the most interesting aspect of this documentary, none more so than Mike Lee’s grandmother, an old-school cowgirl that certainly warrants a documentary of her own…

OUTING RILEY (DVD)

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 86 minutes

“Outing Riley” begins as your typical Ed Burns-style comedy: some good-natured ribbing here, some over-the-top pathos there…

DIRTY UNDIES VOL. 1: THE WORK OF JAIMZ ASMUNDSON (DVD)

“Dirty Undies” is a compendium of some of the short work of Winnipeg-based filmmaker Jaimz Asmundson and the quality of the package varies wildly…

LOST IN LOVE

1.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 91 minutes

This film is obviously a labor of love, but eventually collapses from lack of a solid story and poor character development, not to mention some abysmal performances and a syrupy score…

BROKE

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 20 minutes

“Broke” leaves a lot to be desired as far as storytelling goes, but shows some promise in the film craft department. I imagine the team will make another short in the near future, and they should, because it will only improve their game…

THE CHOSEN ONE

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 80 minutes

With a little more time spent on the script, I think this could have been a great animated film by any standard…

THE LAST FAIR DEAL (DVD)

2 Stars
Year Released: 1995
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 72 minutes

I’m pretty sure that the character doing the voice-over throughout this movie has more lines off-screen than he does on. This is not a good thing…

SLIPPERY SLOPE (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 81 minutes

A movie that looks this good, with good performances all around… it’s a shame they didn’t have better material to start with…

THE LODGE (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 83 minutes

If “The Lodge” is a sort of post-post feminist comment on the state of female characters in film, I must applaud its effort. If not, then it’s really just another nihilistic entry in the banal torture porn canon… but I guess that’s up to you to decide…

WIENER TAKES ALL: A DOGUMENTARY

3 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 79 minutes

Is it just me, or are two puns in the title of a movie two too many? I’m just wondering…

THE MAXWELL MULTIPLE CLIMAX (DVD)

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 30 minutes

Most importantly, though, if someone purchased this video to learn how to achieve multiple male orgasms, I think they’d have a pretty good shot at it…
