3/5 53% Clifford's Really Big Movie (2004) "Despite the movie's rather unoriginal story -- that age-old plot about running off to the join the circus -- at least the filmmakers have created something which, though a little bland, is never crass or vulgar. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 23, 2004
2.5/5 67% Shade (2003) "Too much of a jumble. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 11, 2004
2.5/5 22% Taking Lives (2004) "A near miss of a thriller, but it's still a miss. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 18, 2004
4/5 96% Osama (2004) "It's not just a message that must be told; it's also a bold, beautiful and deeply moving piece of film art. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 1, 2004
4/5 45% The Young Black Stallion (2003) "Like the subject of the story, this film is swift and beautiful, knows where it's going and how to get there fast. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2003
3.5/5 38% Brother Bear (2003) "Disney has come up with a mythical tale, strong on both sentiment and humor and, of course, stuffed with suitable family values messages about being kind to animals and loving your brother as you would be loved. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 24, 2003
2.5/5 70% Dummy (2003) "It's a sweetly sad and sadly funny tale, conceived with quirky sensitivity, but, though its actors are adept, it only just hangs together, like a sitcom still in rehearsal stages. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 12, 2003
2.5/5 60% Madame Satã (2002) "It doesn't tell us enough about its subject and yet its in-your-face love affair with that very subject blocks its ability to speak more fully of the broader social and culture issues of its milieu. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 10, 2003
2/5 35% What a Girl Wants (2003) "What a girl wants is a much better script, especially if she's a girl with Amanda Bynes' talent. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 4, 2003
2.5/4 64% All My Loved Ones (2000) "There's a persistent theatrical sentiment and a woozy quality to the manner of the storytelling, which undercuts the devastatingly telling impact of utter loss personified in the film's simple title. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 31, 2003
4/5 99% Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time (2002) "A truly beautiful, insightful movie that captures the nature of this artist who forms art out of nature. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2003
2.5/5 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) "It goes on too long and is trapped by too many cliches. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 7, 2003
1.5/5 65% Beyond the Clouds (1995) "Musing on the power of inner thought and imagination, the film is far from deep, but instead feels superficial and one-dimensional. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 19, 2002
2.5/5 22% Manna From Heaven (2002) "Like a hand-knitted sweater, it's a little lumpy and ill-fitting, but it has a wonderful texture and attractive color and is just fine for making you feel warm and cozy. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 3, 2002
2.5/5 65% Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie (2002) "It's a format that probably works best for an audience that is faith-based or very young, but for others it's simply a pleasant opportunity for an occasional giggle at the folly of mankind and the underrated value of veggies. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 6, 2002
3.5/5 63% Moonlight Mile (2002) "Moonlight Mile feels authentic--in its grief, its hope, its eradicable sorrow and its outreach for happiness in the face of despair. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2002
0.5/5 1% The Master of Disguise (2002) "The film is so busy making reference to other films and trying to be other films that it fails to have a heart, mind or humor of its own. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 11, 2002
2.5/5 65% Tosca (The Metropolitan Opera) (2002) "Opera on film is never satisfactory. The art demands live viewing. The innate theatrics that provide its thrills and extreme emotions lose their luster when flattened onscreen. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 2, 2002
2.5/5 23% Who Is Cletis Tout? (2002) "There's skimpiness to the whole movie that undercuts its good effort at a modern-minded twist on high-style nostalgia. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 28, 2002
3.5/5 96% Promises (2002) "Even these tales of just seven children seem at times too many, although in reality they are not enough. Every child's story is what matters. This film can only point the way -- but thank goodness for this signpost. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2002
2.5/5 29% Hey Arnold! The Movie (2002) "Lacks depth. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 28, 2002
4/5 100% Krzysztof Kieslowski: I'm So-So... (1998) "This little movie, a soft pencil sketch of a life that should be etched in stone, is an intriguing glimpse through a doorway left slightly ajar. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 10, 2002
1/5 43% Dr. Dolittle (1998) "This movie is not fair to either man or beast. It makes all creatures seem annoying, charmless, noisy, witless and unfunny--unless you are fond of toilet and arse jokes. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3.5/5 86% Mulan (1998) "Almost triumph(s) over the old-fashioned forces of Disney tradition. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 87% Donnie Brasco (1997) "It's hard to develop any sympathy for the film's nasty manipulative humans, despite the best efforts of all involved in this newest slant on the mean-streets crowd. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
1/5 13% B.A.P.S. (1997) "Bad, amateur, poor and silly. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
79% Brassed Off (1997) "Like the music it celebrates, "Brassed Off" is in-your-face yet sentimental, rousing yet sad, defiant but full of heart. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 31% Murder by Numbers (2002) "Sandra Bullock, despite downplaying her good looks, carries a little too much ain't- she-cute baggage into her lead role as a troubled and determined homicide cop to quite pull off the heavy stuff. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 19, 2002
2/5 27% A Walk to Remember (2002) "Plod, plod, plod. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 27, 2002

Posted Jan 4, 2002
2/5 89% The Human Body (2001) "The impression left is that of a series of slides with the lecturer flashing the clicker too quickly from one to another. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 29, 2001
21% The Glass House (2001) "All one leaves the theatre with is the urge to beg Hollywood to stop this endless cycle of mindless horror flicks. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2001
50% Kate & Leopold (2001) "This bland, taffy-pulled, over-long go-round, like something put together by market research, lacks most of the essentials of true love -- heart, passion, sexuality, excitement etc. etc. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2001
15% The Affair of the Necklace (2001) "Oddly cast and ploddingly executed. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 4, 2001
85% Monster's Ball (2002) "Well-told, sad and funny and ultimately uplifting. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 29, 2001
89% Trembling Before G-d (2001) "The stories told ... are very compelling, interesting and often moving, but they do not and cannot explain the religious belief that those persecuted still want comfort from even as they challenge its dictums. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2001
49% Riding in Cars With Boys (2001) "It's neither as much fun as it could be, nor as emotionally affecting. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2001
50% Shadow Glories (2001) "It ends up a broken, fractured version of what it might have been, rather than the intelligent, poetic drama it aspires to be. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 4, 2001
1.5/5 8% Summer Catch (2001) "It's almost any botched play analogy you can think of, though never exciting enough to be compared to a strike-out or even to a wild pitch. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 4, 2001
68% Legally Blonde (2001) "A glass of fizzy pop, it is a refreshing antidote to the world-weary yucks that abound in most youth-appeal movies. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 13, 2001
54% Everybody's Famous! (2001) "A wonderful down-to-earth cast does absurd things which ring entirely true. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 6, 2001
63% Crazy/Beautiful (2001) "The two talented stars both have enough inner light to almost convince us that what's going on matters, but they are stymied by the fact that their performances are geared to a tragedy the movie fails to fulfill. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 29, 2001
53% A Love Divided (1999) "It fails to arouse much more than deep annoyance. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 1, 2001
77% The Tailor of Panama (2001) "One big double entendre that's too jokey for its own good yet nevertheless is at times very amusing. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 2, 2001
2/5 54% Enemy at the Gates (2001) "The filmmakers of Enemy at the Gates haven't solved the "hearts and minds" problem -- not for the films' heroes and villains, and certainly not for themselves. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 27, 2001

Posted Mar 1, 2001
70% Series 7: The Contenders (2001) "An extremely clever and intelligent autopsy of a world that has long given up on the truth. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2001
84% Erin Brockovich (2000) "[Roberts] is well matched by Albert Finney ... And Aaron Eckhart also has the big screen presence to hold his own. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000
87% Liberty Heights (1999) "A charming film, infused and emotionally heightened by the imagination of memory. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
13% Whipped (1999) "Some of the unpleasant moments are funny, some not, but it isn't realistic enough to have an impact and not stylish enough to be seductive even at its most amusing. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
