Reviews for January 2006


Underworld: Evolution (R) (2006) (Kate Beckinsale, Scott Speedman)
*Passes the trigger test!

The New World (PG-13) (2005) (Colin Farrell, Q’Orianka Kilcher)
*Passes the trigger test! By the way, Kudos to the director for not showing rape scenes in this movie.

The Matador (R) (2005) (Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear)
*Passes the trigger test! However,there is a brief scene in which a man lusts after an underage child. Scene is played for laughs.

Looking For Comedy in the Muslim World (PG-13) (2006) (Albert Brooks, Sheetal Sheth)
*Passes the trigger test!

END OF THE SPEAR (2006) (Chad Allen, Louie Leonardo) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test! However, a brief scene occurs in which a tribeswoman looks down the pants of a boy to make sure that he is a boy. No harm is intended by doing so.

Glory Road (PG) (2006) (Josh Lucas, Derek Luke)
*Passes the trigger test!

Hoodwinked (PG) (2005) (voices of Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close)
*Passes the trigger test!

Last Holiday (PG-13) (2006) (Queen Latifah, LL Cool J)
*Passes the trigger test!

Tristan & Isolde (PG-13) (2006) (James Franco, Sophia Myles)
*Passes the trigger test!

BloodRayne (R) (2006) (Kristanna Loken, Michelle Rodriguez)
*Fails the trigger test.

Grandma’s Boy (R) (2006) (Allen Covert, Linda Cardellini)
*Passes the trigger test!

Hostel (R) (2006) (Jay Hernandez, Derek Richardson)
*Passes the trigger test, but just barely. A drugged woman is brought into a room by a group of men, and one man speaks up and says that they can’t have sex with a drugged woman. There are dominatrix style sex scenes which are graphic. There is plenty of sadistic torture, but to my knowledge, nothing sexual happens in these scenes. There are plenty of abduction and bondage scenes. A man comes on to another man and he is very uncomfortable with it, but nothing else happens. All of these may be disturbing to some viewers who’ve been in similar situations.

Match Point (R) (2005) (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Scarlett Johansson)
*Passes the trigger test!

Breakfast on Pluto (R) (2005) (Cillian Murphy, Liam Neeson)
*Passes the trigger test! However, there is one scene in which a male prostitute dressed in drag gos to be with a john and he attemps to strangle him, but does not succeed. Some myay be disturbed by this quick shift from sexual expectation to violence.

Transamerica (R) (2005) (Felicity Huffman, Kevin Zegers)
*Fails the trigger test.

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (PG) (2005) (Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt)
*Passes the trigger test!

Fun with Dick & Jane (PG-13) (2005) (Jim Carrey, Téa Leoni)
*Passes the trigger test!

Munich (R) (2005) (Eric Bana, Geoffrey Rush)
*Usure… Someone will have to let me know! What I do know is that there are abduction scenes, that may bother some viewers. Also, a woman who is an assasin is about to be killed for murdering someone. She exposes her breasts in an attempt to stop them from killing her. I am unsure whether or not she does this of her own free will or if they are forcing her to do this. She is ultimately killed by them…

THE PRODUCERS (2005) (Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test!
