45% The Acid House (1998) " What the three stories do share are solid ideas all dressed up with nowhere to go." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 1, 2007

11% A Night at the Roxbury (1998) " The rest of the film is on autopilot, with comic material that's spread thinner than the lone brain cell the Butabis share." — Film Journal International
Posted Sep 9, 2002
38% No Looking Back (1998) " Despite its thinness, No Looking Back is a step forward for Burns. Let's hope he takes the title to heart." — Film Journal International
Posted Sep 9, 2002
—— Non-Stop (2000) " Non-Stop ends in a flurry of ill-defined thugs pointing guns at one another in flimsily established face-offs, and none of it supports the story the film wants to tell." — Film Journal International
Posted Sep 9, 2002

Posted Aug 15, 2001
51% Kiss of the Dragon (2001) " It's not often in an action flick as big and loud as this that the most intimate gesture between the male and female lead is a gracious offering of brightly colored shrimp chips." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 30, 2001
44% Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within (2001) " The characters in Final Fantasy are truly artificial in more ways than one." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 24, 2001
63% Simon Magus (2001) " Despite its fine cast, this first feature by British writer-director Ben Hopkins is more clumsily realized than many a misfire in recent memory." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 29, 2001
93% Spy Kids (2001) " Well before the 80 minutes are up, most parents will probably tune out, but the little kids will surely feel like they are inside one fantastic candy store." — Film Journal International

16% Sweet November (2001) " Emotional subtlety and narrative logic were never quite in the cards for this movie to begin with." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 5, 2001
48% An Everlasting Piece (2001) " It's unpretentious almost to the point of indifference, and thus never quite wrangles enough passion or conflict to fuel the story forward." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 7, 2001
67% One (2000) " Screenplay also telegraphs the fates of both characters from very early on, a decision that sucks out a great deal of potential suspense and drama." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 7, 2001
96% The Straight Story (1999) " There isn't a single visible seam in his remarkable work here." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000

44% Very Bad Things (1998) " It's the eternal question." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
63% SLC Punk (1998) " SLC Punk cannot quite reach the richer depths it grasps for, because it doesn't have the material to support the large dramatic distance Stevo has to travel." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
81% South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (1999) " It is abundantly clear that Parker and Stone desperately want to be, or at least appear to be, subversive, but for the most part, this is kiddie subversion." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
99% L.A. Confidential (1997) " This is the rare film that displays a perfect sense of star power, and how it plays to an audience." — Film Journal International

Posted Jan 1, 2000
31% Brokedown Palace (1999) " Far messier and more corrupt than the society it attempts to portray." — Film Journal International

Posted Jan 1, 2000
78% Space Cowboys (2000) " Eastwood, Jones, Sutherland and Garner have a nice rapport, and they are fun with one another." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
70% Beaumarchais the Scoundrel (Beaumarchais, l'insolent) (1996) " Little more than a series of innocuous adventures that just happen to be inhabited by the same character." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
92% A Bug's Life (1998) " The densely boisterous, richly colorful, organically amazing world created here is a relentless joy to behold." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23% Sour Grapes (1998) " There isn't really a big laugh in the bunch, but the comedy does manage to keep its balance, barely, thanks to an efficient pace and light disposition." — Film Journal International

22% The General's Daughter (1999) Nitrate Online
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48% Love & Sex (2000) " An insufferably dull retracing of romantic comedy's steps, with none of the relationship insight or genuine humanness that can make the formula such a joyful one to follow." — Film Journal International

94% Autumn Tale (Conte d'Automne) (1999) Nitrate Online

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
10% Soldier (1998) " From its barren junkyard landscapes to Kurt Russell's thimbleful of spoken lines to the title itself, Soldier is so sparse it barely exists." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40% Snake Eyes (1998) " The second half of the film plays out a weak-kneed chase yarn that's staged and structured so halfheartedly you wonder why the filmmakers bothered at all." — Film Journal International

44% Free Willy 3: The Rescue (1997) " A film that treats its human audience with as much respect as its less-evolved subjects." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
68% Shaft (2000) " Shaft 2000 wants to criticize a bad practice of the white establishment and then practices it at the same time, and there's no way it can get close to having that one both ways." — Film Journal International
