Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 71% The Cider House Rules (1999) " [It] is a fable that turns into a 1940s New England variation on Charles Dickens. It is also one dickens of an American movie." — San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Jan 18, 2002
2/4 62% Dark Blue World (2001) " The memorable stars ... are the Spitfires and Messerschmitts in its aerial battles -- a crackerjack combination of live action, special effects and recycled footage." — San Francisco Chronicle
