3/5 64% Bring It On (2000) Hollywood.com
Posted Nov 20, 2008
B 77% The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005) " By keeping their story threads separate, " — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 1, 2005
C+ 52% Ice Princess (2005) " We get that the heroine is geeky (laying groundwork for the duck-to-swan transformation), but must she babble physics formulas at parties?" — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 18, 2005
4/5 83% The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) " In a career-making performance, the saxophone-blowing, tantrum-throwing Law plays Dickie with such vigor and energy that when he exits, the light dims slightly from the film..." — Hollywood.com
Posted May 14, 2004
C 83% Mean Girls (2004) " Sadly, much like an SNL sketch, Mean Girls starts off sharp and juicy, then runs out of gas halfway through." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 29, 2004
B 64% 13 Going on 30 (2004) " Garner's performance is uplifting. She's been touted recently as yet another possible heir to Julia Roberts' throne, and her attainable girl-next-door quality makes it's plain to see why." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 22, 2004
C 13% Agent Cody Banks 2 - Destination London (2004) " Try as it might, this glossy action adventure isn't nearly as clever as the Spy Kids franchise." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 11, 2004
C+ 13% Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004) " Gives [Lohan] ample time to act starry-eyed and show off her dancing and singing, but little chance to prove she can hold her own among the Hilary Duffs of the world." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 19, 2004
C 17% The Perfect Score (2004) " Possesses little of the snap or charisma of the films that inspired it." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 29, 2004
C+ 16% You Got Served (2004) " Tries to be a story about triumph and teamwork. Instead it comes off like a group of high schoolers awkwardly auditioning for a play." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 29, 2004
3/4 25% Pearl Harbor (2001) " The filmmakers would like you to know that this isn't typical action fare yet they've still created the most spectacular action scene in recent memory." — Hollywood.com
Posted Jan 23, 2004
C 23% Torque (2004) " A Fast and the Furious on motorcycles that gets its juice from its road action but little else." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 16, 2004
B 23% Bad Boys II (2003) " Watching a Bruckheimer with natural comics like Smith and Lawrence makes it all go down easily. If you like this type of movie, that is." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jul 17, 2003
D+ 7% Boat Trip (2003) " Unabashedly dumb and pathetically offensive." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 20, 2003
C 14% View from the Top (2003) " It dances into Spoofville, then jerks back into straight romantic comedy." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 20, 2003
C 26% Cradle 2 the Grave (2003) " A formulaic picture that's entertaining enough, but makes you wonder if Li will ever duplicate his success in Asia in the States." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 27, 2003
A- 75% The Way Home (Jibeuro) (2002) " An uncluttered, resonant gem that relays its universal points without lectures or confrontations." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 5, 2002
B+ 55% The Santa Clause 2 - The Mrs. Clause (2002) " Allen is genuinely affable as Santa with wit." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 31, 2002
B- 17% Abandon (2002) " You've convinced yourself it's a drama just before the story twists, after which the throwaway 'filler' scenes become conversation points you'll decipher on the way home." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 18, 2002
5/5 100% Toy Story 2 (1999) " Parents should caution: After Toy Story 2, homes will likely be sprinkled with dust from attic boxes, as favorite playthings of yesteryear are brought out for a joyous reunion." — Hollywood.com
Posted Aug 2, 2002
2/5 14% Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (1999) " The film is baffling, amateur and somewhat contradictory about violence." — Hollywood.com
Posted Jun 28, 2002
3.5/5 97% The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg (2000) " Kempner puts Cole Porter standards to movie clips from Pride of the Yankees, Woman of the Year and others, providing the right amount of baseball nostalgia." — Hollywood.com
Posted Jun 21, 2002
B 31% Murder by Numbers (2002) " Doesn't bank on cheap plot twists or unrealistic betrayals, but rather the subtle, juicy roles bestowed on two young actors." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 18, 2002
C- 18% National Lampoon's Van Wilder (Party Liaison) (2002) " Had it not wandered into aforementioned eclair territory, it could have been better than a discount video rental." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 4, 2002
D 27% How High (2001) " You've seen it before." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 3, 2002
D 13% Sorority Boys (2002) " Sorority Boys, which is as bad at it is cruel, takes every potential laugh and stiletto-stomps the life out of it." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 21, 2002
C- 33% Resident Evil (2002) " Like many video games, Resident Evil has a drearily long setup, then a lot of blood and gore, then an overextended ending." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 14, 2002
C+ 30% All About the Benjamins (2002) " Its generic villains lack any intrigue (other than their funny accents) and the action scenes are poorly delivered." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 7, 2002
B- 38% 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002) " Mostly fun to watch, buoyed by some strong dialogue and performances by the supporting cast." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 28, 2002
B 35% Super Troopers (2002) " The cast, collectively a successful example of the lovable-loser protagonist, shows deft comic timing." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 14, 2002
D+ 14% Crossroads (2002) " A charmless road pic slathered in cheese." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 14, 2002
42% Big Fat Liar (2002) " The film gets snaps just by attempting the high road, and should be enjoyed by its target audience." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 7, 2002
B- 58% Birthday Girl (2002) " Birthday Girl conspicuously shifts between a semiromance, semicomedy and semicrime thriller, which dilutes the best of its parts and results in a confection only half-baked in entertainment." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 31, 2002
B- 27% A Walk to Remember (2002) " What saves the film is the chemistry between the two leads." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 25, 2002
C+ 53% The Mothman Prophecies (2002) " The Mothman Prophecies falters in part because it leaves too much, well, out there." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 24, 2002
D+ 28% Not Another Teen Movie (2001) " By the time a member of teen-movie royalty makes a cameo in the film's finale, Not Another Teen Movie has long exhausted any hope of succeeding. Instead it becomes, well, just another teen movie." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
