3/4 84% King Kong (2005) " Jackson's King Kong is a throwback film, depending on you to approach it with a sort of wide-eyed innocence you might've forgotten you had. It's loud and unbelievable. It's supposed to be. There aren't any 25-foot-tall gorillas in this world" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jan 1, 2006
3/4 82% Monster (2004) " I didn't walk out of Monster with that "great" movie feeling, which is not to say it wasn't "great." Profound fits better." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jan 28, 2004
2.5/4 88% A Mighty Wind (2003) " If you're going for a textbook "good" movie, this isn't it. But... I sure laughed a lot. And these days, that's good enough for me." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted May 14, 2003
3/4 87% X2: X-Men United (2003) " X2 ...is what the first film should have been; it's not a comic adaptation, it's a sci-fi film that stands on its own merit." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted May 9, 2003
4/4 81% The Hours (2002) " The Hours makes you examine your own life in much the same way its characters do, and the experience is profound. The Hours is what movies are supposed to be..." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Feb 18, 2003
3/4 79% Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2003) " If for nothing else, go see Rockwell's performance. It's about time for him to bust out into bigger and better roles, and if it happens, this movie will be why." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Feb 18, 2003
2/4 66% Shanghai Knights (2003) " Skip this one if for no other reason than to tell all those bigwigs in Hollywood that you won't stand for them serving you reheated piles of steaming crap. Send the message that they at least have to stir in some salsa or something." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Feb 18, 2003
3/4 71% The Ring (2002) " It will... make you think twice about watching any of those video tapes with no labels on the bottom of your entertainment center." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Oct 23, 2002
3.5/4 74% Signs (2002) " Using the theorem that less is more, Shyamalan creates a psychologically frightening movie taut with emotional tension and ripe with fear." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Aug 8, 2002
2/4 48% Eight Legged Freaks (2002) " ...if you're just in the mood for a fun -- but bad -- movie, you might want to catch Freaks as a matinee." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jul 26, 2002
2/4 40% Reign of Fire (2002) " 'All in all, Reign of Fire will be a good (successful) rental.'" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jul 19, 2002
3.5/4 81% Road to Perdition (2002) " 'Trust me, when you walk out of the theater from this one, you'll know you've seen a great movie.'" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jul 19, 2002
2/4 39% Men in Black II (2002) " 'You'll laugh for not quite and hour and a half, but come out feeling strangely unsatisfied. You'll feel like you ate a Reeses without the peanut butter...'" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jul 11, 2002
1/4 22% Mr. Deeds (2002) " 'God help us, but Capra and Cooper are rolling over in their graves.'" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jul 8, 2002
2.5/4 58% The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) " "...something appears to have been lost in the translation this time. The Importance of Being Earnest movie seems to be missing a great deal of the acerbic repartee of the play."" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jun 27, 2002
3.5/4 91% Minority Report (2002) " It has more substance than most Spielberg films and definitely more of an edge. Looks like the director's kid gloves are off. This is a good thing." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jun 27, 2002
3/4 83% The Bourne Identity (2002) " It's a smart, solid, kinetically-charged spy flick worthy of a couple hours of summertime and a bucket of popcorn. Nothing overly original, mind you, but solidly entertaining." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jun 19, 2002
2.5/4 59% The Sum of All Fears (2002) " Advance buzz for The Sum of All Fears was it was better than Red October. Rest assured, it's not. In fact, for the first hour, Sum isn't better than much of anything, and then boom . . . it turns into a good movie." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/4 89% Spider-Man (2002) " "Spider-man is better than any summer blockbuster we had to endure last summer, and hopefully, sets the tone for a summer of good stuff. If you're a comic fan, you can't miss it. If you're not, you'll still have a good time."" — Urban Tulsa Weekly
Posted May 31, 2002
7/10 67% Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D (2002) " It's an ambitious film, and as with all ambitious films, it has some problems. But on the whole, you're gonna like this movie." — Urban Tulsa Weekly
