0.5/4 0% Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) " That's the thing about children when it comes to movies: They're not that discriminating. They can be perilously easy to please, which is why it's important that their parents protect them from films like Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 15, 2014
3/4 90% My Summer of Love (2004) " It's all very mesmerizing, for them and us." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 18, 2005
2.5/4 63% Lipstick & Dynamite - The First Ladies of Wrestling (2004) " Don't expect the inside scoop so much as an unsatisfying slice of life." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 11, 2005
2.5/4 72% Walk on Water (2005) " Even when Walk on Water doesn't quite have you by the heart, its little fingers fumble around in your brain." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 17, 2005
2/4 76% Brother to Brother (2004) " Ambitious but clumsy, it's a movie to appreciate rather than to be engaged by." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Dec 9, 2004
1/4 11% Thérèse (2004) " Unless you're stumped for a way to commemorate the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux Friday, there's little point in going to see the low-budget, one-star-worthy hagiography, Therese." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 30, 2004
2/4 26% Anacondas - The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004) " It's little better or worse than the original. But, to be honest, the original -- minus its nascent stars -- wasn't very good." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Aug 26, 2004
1.5/4 5% Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie (Yûgiô: Gekijô-ban) (2004) " Much of the movie is devoted to the boys dueling card-to-card. And so most the dialogue, forgive me fans, sounds something like this: "I'm going to thwart your Egyptian God cards with my Rare Metal Dragon card!"" — Chicago Tribune
Posted Aug 12, 2004
3.5/4 94% The Story of the Weeping Camel (2004) " Anyone who feels like they're drowning in their own polluted, godless, reality-TV-choked, errand-ridden consumerist life will find a momentary escape from modernity in The Story of the Weeping Camel." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 17, 2004
2/4 24% Red Trousers (2003) " Feels more like a 'making-of' piece or vanity project for actor and first-time director Robin Shou ... than a tight, thorough documentary." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Apr 1, 2004
3/4 94% Blind Shaft (2003) " Engrossing because of its amazingly well-documented milieu, which German-trained writer-director Li Yang filmed on location in the northern provinces." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 25, 2004
2/4 61% NASCAR: The IMAX Experience (2004) " True fans (i.e., the people who are most likely to buy tickets) probably know a lot of this stuff already, and they might be disappointed by the lack of drama and the brevity of 3-D racing action." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 11, 2004
1.5/4 12% Catch That Kid (2004) " It's a juicy premise, but the enactment is so dumbed-down that you couldn't possibly fault your jaded children for yawning and rolling their eyes." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Feb 5, 2004
2.5/4 47% Martin & Orloff (2002) " You'll chuckle at least once during the proceedings -- but probably not much more than that." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jan 15, 2004
2.5/4 86% Tibet - Cry of the Snow Lion (2003) " Such a measured primer of talking heads and footage -- a broad, slick Tibet 101 -- that it seems better suited to the classroom than the big screen, despite its Himalayan scenery and rustic colors." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Dec 11, 2003
2.5/4 37% Standard Time (Anything But Love) (2002) " The earnest, low-budget indie Anything But Love isn't quite the movie you'd like it to be, but it provides some kicks, nonetheless." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Nov 20, 2003
1/4 52% Suspended Animation (2003) " Feels a lot like two different Hancock jobs stitched together." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Oct 30, 2003
3/4 45% Good Boy! (2003) " A devastating work of pro-doggie propaganda." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Oct 9, 2003
2.5/4 51% Dopamine (2003) " It's more likable than it is good. Still, it might leave you feeling romantic (and romantic about your particular city) even if it doesn't nail its case for love in a psychopharmacological age." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Oct 9, 2003
2.5/4 44% Luther (2003) " The film short-hands a lot of stuff, but it's gripping for a while." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 25, 2003
2/4 20% No Good Deed (2003) " This undermarketed noir suffers because many of its characters don't seem to belong in the same universe." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 20, 2003
1/4 63% Cabin Fever (2002) " It's just a watery, undeservedly smug update of the low-budget, kids-stranded- in-the-sticks bloodfests of the 1970s and '80s." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 11, 2003
1.5/4 38% Sin noticias de Dios (Don't Tempt Me) (2003) " Manny is so uninteresting as a pivotal character that he's a black hole who sucks away our investment in the film." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 4, 2003
1.5/4 23% Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) " Horror movies don't have to make sense in the real world, but when you have to help their internal logic along this much, it's pretty much a cue for heckling -- or checking your watch." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Aug 28, 2003
2/4 29% O Fantasma (2001) " Despite a couple of memorable scenes, it's boring when it's not kinky." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 31, 2003
2/4 45% Lucia, Lucia (La Hija del caníbal) (2003) " A vivacious-looking, tartly-scored bore of a movie." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 24, 2003
2/4 53% Km. 0 (Kilometer Zero) (2001) " What's the point of watching if everyone feels like a pawn in a script?" — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 17, 2003
3/4 28% How to Deal (2003) " [A] more-thoughtful -than-average film." — Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 17, 2003
2/4 24% God Is Great, and I'm Not (Dieu est grand, je suis toute petite) (2002) " You could watch a heroine barrel into a messy romance all day, provided that she's a lot less dopey than this, but few of Michele's foibles make us sympathize with her." — Chicago Tribune
