Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
11% A Man Apart (2003) " Yes, Vin Diesel still rocks. But you wouldn't know it from this dreary, predictable sub-Traffic action flick." — Salon.com
Posted Apr 4, 2003
37% Spun (2003) " This tale of Southern California speed freaks works too hard for its high." — Salon.com
Posted Mar 14, 2003
82% Amandla! A Revolution in Four Part Harmony (2003) " A beautiful movie about the power of music, about the power of being right." — Salon.com
Posted Feb 22, 2003
23% Biker Boyz (2003) " Biker Boyz is about fast motorcycles and the tough dudes -- and even tougher chicks -- who soup them up in illegal street races. Unfortunately, it's about more than that." — Salon.com
Posted Jan 30, 2003
83% Narc (2002) " About the best thing you could say about Narc is that it's a rock-solid little genre picture. Whether you like it or not is basically a matter of taste." — Salon.com
Posted Dec 20, 2002
78% 25th Hour (2003) " A clumsy, oh-well story about the moral quandary of a drug-dealing recidivist who more or less deserves to go to jail." — Salon.com
Posted Dec 20, 2002
69% Personal Velocity: Three Portraits (2002) " In a way, it plays like a dated feminist tract, one of those works that wants to show women making tough decisions and being emotionally resilient, but is at root about them being screwed over by men." — Salon.com
Posted Nov 27, 2002
88% Roger Dodger (2002) " There's a lot of tooth in Roger Dodger. But what's nice is that there's a casual intelligence that permeates the script." — Salon.com
Posted Oct 25, 2002
25% Formula 51 (The 51st State) (2002) " Director Yu seems far more interested in gross-out humor than in showing us well-thought stunts or a car chase that we haven't seen 10,000 times." — Salon.com
Posted Oct 23, 2002
86% 24 Hour Party People (2002) " The bad thing about 24 Hour Party People is that it's blindly ambitious, garishly self-indulgent and reckless with the truth. The good thing is it knows all these things. And the best thing is that it might be a great movie." — Salon.com
Posted Aug 9, 2002
39% Men in Black II (2002) " Instead of inhabiting the same world of his original, the delightful 1997 Men in Black, or inventing a new world, this update kitschifies it, rendering it into a silly joke." — Salon.com
Posted Jul 3, 2002
92% Dogtown and Z-Boys (2001) " The problem is that Peralta wants it all, and that it doesn't all add up." — Salon.com
Posted May 4, 2002
92% Nine Queens (Nueve reinas) (2002) " A people pleaser that makes use of dozens of great movie tricks and manages to sprinkle great lines throughout." — Salon.com
Posted Apr 26, 2002
73% The Piano Teacher (La Pianiste) (2001) " This is a smart movie that knows its classical music, knows its Freud and knows its Sade." — Salon.com
Posted Apr 19, 2002
86% El Hijo de la novia (Son of the Bride) (2002) " While it's not as fantastical as Amelie or as brutish as No Man's Land, it has something that neither of those movies have: a sort of measured everyday realism." — Salon.com
Posted Mar 21, 2002
3% Rollerball (2002) " John McTiernan's botched remake may be subtler than Norman Jewison's 1975 ultraviolent futuristic corporate-sports saga. It's also stupider." — Salon.com
Posted Feb 13, 2002
73% The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) " The classic book had a lot of complex, smart things to say about revenge. The movie doesn't." — Salon.com
Posted Jan 25, 2002
75% Grass (2000) Salon.com
Posted Aug 9, 2001
92% Startup.com (2001) " An engrossing documentary follows two friends as they soar and crash with the dot-com wave." — Salon.com
Posted May 10, 2001
60% The Minus Man (1999) Salon.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
54% The Legend of 1900 (La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano) (1999) Salon.com
