4.5/5 94% The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) " A staggering work." — Citysearch
Posted Dec 16, 2003
1/5 10% Dr. Seuss - The Cat in the Hat (2003) " Almost entirely unrecognizeable as something from the Seuss world." — Citysearch
Posted Nov 20, 2003
8/10 78% Tupac - Resurrection (2003) " Even if rap isn't your thing, Tupac's is an intriguing life story -- and nobody tells it better than him." — Citysearch
Posted Nov 13, 2003
8/10 85% Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) " You get a week in the Galapagos here, a week of storms there, and precious few battles in between. Diehard action buffs won't know what to do, but if you're the type who appreciates the scenery on a long drive, this is your film." — Citysearch
Posted Nov 13, 2003
4/10 62% Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) " The lesson? No matter what you think, you will never be happy without a hunk." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 25, 2003
8/10 71% The Rundown (Welcome to the Jungle) (2003) " With humor that runs the gamut from pee jokes to Heart of Darkness references, The Rundown is unrealistic, goofy, juvenile, absurdly violent and completely recommended." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 25, 2003
5/10 31% Underworld (2003) " A slick-looking but empty monster movie that not-so-subtly borrows from everything." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 18, 2003
5/10 72% Vampire Hunter D - Bloodlust (2001) " A stylish bit of modern anime despite a finale that muddles its momentum." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
6/10 84% Swiss Family Robinson (1960) " Should be called Swiss Army Robinson." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
9/10 95% Strictly Ballroom (1992) " Lots of laughs, lots of style: Strictly Ballroom is a wonderful prelude to Luhrmann's next two films." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
8/10 98% Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) " Songs like 'Heigh-Ho'and 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' are timeless; people who haven't seen this in years still recall every word." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
7/10 87% First Blood (Rambo: First Blood) (1982) " The first Rambo movie has more depth than many give it credit for." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
7/10 54% Midway (1976) " Charlton Heston at his restrained yet forceful best." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
9/10 55% Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade (1998) " Oshii's layered use of the Red Riding Hood story is both clever and chilling." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
10/10 98% The Hustler (1961) " Newman and Scott smolder through the moody black-and-white cinematography, delivering line after line of crackling dialogue." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
7/10 68% La Ley de Herodes (Herod's Law) (2000) " Juan arms himself with a rewritten town constitution and a pistol. Kinky sex and ill-gotten dinero shortly follow." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
6/10 71% Gangster No. 1 (2000) " A stylish, confused and insanely violent gangster drama from a first-time Brit director." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
8/10 98% The Evil Dead (1981) " Think "The Blair Witch Project," but with the witch holding the camera." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
5/10 72% The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984) " An endearing piece of trash with a devoted group of fans." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 16, 2003
1/10 38% Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973) " The bluntest, cheapest and worst of the 'Apes' movies." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 11, 2003
9/10 70% TRON (1982) " Anyone nostalgic for monochrome computer screens, BASIC or '80s video games should definitely check this out again." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 11, 2003
7/10 95% Lost In Translation (2003) " They'll always have Tokyo." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 11, 2003
8/10 82% Matchstick Men (2003) " Part family drama, part slick con picture, Matchstick Men works thanks to fantastic acting and a clever script with one giant twist." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 11, 2003
3/10 23% Dickie Roberts - Former Child Star (2003) " Replace the mullet-wearing redneck from Joe Dirt with a burnout child actor, and you've got Dickie Roberts." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 4, 2003
10/10 70% Army of Darkness (1993) " Die-hard horror buffs beware: 'Army' gives the genre a giant 'Three Stooges'-style slap to the face." — Citysearch
Posted Sep 3, 2003
6/10 23% Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) " If you ever wanted to see a monster eat the cast from Varsity Blues, this is your movie." — Citysearch
Posted Aug 28, 2003
1/10 18% The Medallion (2003) " None of the jokes are funny, none of the characters make sense and little of the action is even worthwhile. Stay as far away as possible." — Citysearch
Posted Aug 21, 2003
9/10 79% Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) " This weirdly wonderful little film looks good enough on paper, but it's even better than the sum of its parts." — Citysearch
Posted Aug 21, 2003
4/10 6% Gigli (2003) " J.Lo's infamous 'turkey time' line is pretty awful." — Citysearch
Posted Aug 4, 2003
8/10 55% American Wedding (2003) " If you liked the first two, you won't be disappointed." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 31, 2003
6/10 24% Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) " Calling it 'Tomb Raider of the Lost Ark' is too easy, but the similarities are striking." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 24, 2003
4/10 33% Johnny English (2003) " While Atkinson has physical comedy skills and a deadpan delivery equal to Sellers, his screenwriters take the easy, poo-joke route far too often." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 17, 2003
5/10 23% Bad Boys II (2003) " Expect the captain to get very angry with our heroes, expect a shootout to erupt every five minutes, expect some genuine laughs from Lawrence -- just don't expect anything original." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 17, 2003
8/10 79% Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) " This rollicking adventure is everything a pirate movie should be -- witty dialogue, double-crosses, swordfights, skeletons and gold coins aplenty." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 8, 2003
2/10 38% Legally Blonde 2 - Red, White & Blonde (2003) " This flick's lazy attempts at humor -- especially making Bob Newhart say 'fo shizzle my nizzle' -- fall way short of the original." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 2, 2003
4/10 70% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) " Maybe they should've sent a robot back in time to force Cameron and company to direct this film." — Citysearch
Posted Jul 2, 2003
5/10 44% Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle (2003) " Where the first film still managed to be fun and kooky, this one eventually grows tiresome." — Citysearch
Posted Jun 26, 2003
4/10 11% Alex & Emma (2003) " It's the cinematic equivalent of beach reading, but we'd like to see Wilson and Hudson aim higher." — Citysearch
Posted Jun 19, 2003
8/10 62% Hulk (2003) " Hulk might be the first comic book film worthy of the art house." — Citysearch
Posted Jun 19, 2003

9/10 99% Finding Nemo (2003) " As notable for its well-crafted story as it is for its breathtaking animation." — Citysearch
Posted May 30, 2003

Posted May 29, 2003
3/10 48% Bruce Almighty (2003) " Closer to Patch Adams than Ace Ventura." — Citysearch
Posted May 27, 2003
5/10 34% The In-Laws (2003) " Moments of madcap hilarity are strung together poorly, making the flick feel like a series of skits rather than a movie." — Citysearch
Posted May 22, 2003
7/10 73% The Matrix Reloaded (2003) " Eye-popping sci-fi." — Citysearch
Posted May 14, 2003
8/10 92% L' Homme du Train (The Man on the Train) (2003) " In the end, because he refuses to compromise their fates, director Patrice Leconte manages a kind of sweet tragedy rarely attempted in American films." — Citysearch
Posted May 9, 2003
7/10 87% X2: X-Men United (2003) " Stryker keeps X2 from exceeding the sum of its otherwise impressive parts." — Citysearch
Posted May 5, 2003
7/10 35% The Real Cancun (2003) " Though it does deliver naked breasts and binge drinking, "Cancun" also spins a surprisingly funny tale. Seriously." — Citysearch
Posted Apr 25, 2003
7/10 77% Holes (2003) " Think The Shawshank Redemption for The Bad News Bears crowd." — Citysearch
