  1. Dead Man Down 2013 That crack cast still keeps things involving, especially Rapace's emotionally and physically disfigured Beatrice. full review
  2. The Devil Inside 2012 Proves as scary and unsettling as a slab of devil's food cake - only considerably less satisfying. full review
  3. Good for Nothing 2012 Beauty and the Beast meets Sergio Leone in this amusing Western import. full review
  4. Welcome To Pine Hill 2012 A tender cinema verite take on one man's quest for spiritual redemption. full review
  5. Dirty Girl 2011 A sweet 'n' sassy period comedy with a Juno sensibility and the soul of a Little Miss Sunshine. full review
  6. Hatchet II 2010 More funhouse than grindhouse, this unrated horror-comedy has its D-grade charms thanks to its killer cast. full review
  7. Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel 2009 A revealing portrait of the freedom-fighting man beneath the silk pajamas.
  8. Ondine 2009 A lyrical, if slight, breeze of an Irish fable.
  9. The Secret of Kells 2009 A beguiling kaleidoscopic indulgence for the eyes and soul. full review
  10. Deal 2008 Success isn't in the cards for this plodding poker drama.
  11. Jackass: Number Two 2006 The screams of laughter come fast and furious in this frat boy's fever dream of a circus sideshow.
  12. Nacho Libre 2006
  13. Aeon Flux 2005 Simultaneously silly, ostentatious and terribly boring.
  14. Edison (Edison Force) 2005 A star-studded dud of a B-picture populated with corrupt politicians, rogue psycho cops, noble newspaper reporters and enough posturing to start up a chiropractic clinic.
  15. Stoned 2005 The film dishes oodles of sex and drugs but skimps on the rock 'n' roll.
  16. Stander 2003 Stander attempts to pass itself off as a fast-paced caper picture doubling as a socially conscious apartheid drama but ends up equally unconvincing in both departments.
  17. Dahmer 2002 Ambitious, unsettling psychodrama that takes full, chilling advantage of its rough-around-the-edges, low-budget constraints.
  18. The Master of Disguise 2002 An embarrassing mess for all involved, this so-called family comedy is about as unfunny as unfunny gets. Even its fart jokes are below the industry standard.
  19. The New Guy 2002 A loud, brash and mainly unfunny high school comedy.
  20. Super Troopers 2002 Compared to what tends to pass for comedies these days, this creation of the five-man sketch-comedy team billing itself as Broken Lizard actually induces chuckles at acceptable intervals, which puts it well ahead of the game.
  21. Get Over It 2001 Underneath all the fuss, there's a half-baked plot that fails to make much of a connection.
  22. The Wash 2001 A half-baked hack job that's woefully short on laughs, style, decent performances and discernible signs of technical proficiency.
  23. Merci Pour le Chocolat 2000 This masterfully calibrated psychological thriller thrives on its taut performances and creepy atmosphere even if the screenplay falls somewhat short.
  24. With A Friend Like Harry 2000 An artfully entertaining psychological thriller.
  25. The Yards 2000 More preoccupied with themes and moods than providing anything intriguing plot-wise or character-wise for the viewer to truly care about.
