Couple the dialogue issues with a spoonfed voice-over and an unlikeable lead character, and you have a very disappointing cinematic endeavor…

Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated

THE LAST WINTER

2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 100 minutes

IN LIMITED RELEASE! It was just a matter of time before there was a Global Warming horror film. A movie that would make Al Gore proud, “The Last Winter” is an extremely ambitious film, populated with plot holes, bad acting and terrible CG monsters to boot…

ROCKET SCIENCE

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated

IN SELECT THEATRES NOW! This is one of those films that will either hit it big as an indie crossover like “Little Miss Sunshine,” or just make some money and become a film nerd favorite. Either way I recommend you don’t miss this awkwardly fun gem…
