Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 86% Chicago (2002) " I'm ready to say Chicago is the only movie of a Broadway musical I've seen that's better than the show it's based on. " ‐ Good Morning America
Posted Feb 25, 2015
A- 81% The Hours (2002) " The script, the score, the sets, the costumes, and the direction are all Oscar quality, and incredible performances from Kidman, Moore, Streep and Harris make The Hours seem like minutes. " ‐ Good Morning America
Posted Feb 25, 2015
91% The Departed (2006) " It's one of the year's best pictures. It's also one of Martin Scorsese's best. And when you think of some other films he's made, that's saying something. " ‐ Good Morning America
Posted Jan 23, 2015
A- 91% Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) " This is the best of the Harry Potter films. It's not that there's more magic, it's just more magical. " ‐ Good Morning America
Posted Sep 25, 2004
B 96% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) " The middle part of a trilogy is always the toughest to tell. And it's even tougher in this case, because of our expectations. This movie simply doesn't match up to the first. " ‐ Good Morning America
Posted Dec 17, 2002
77% Changing Lanes (2002) " You never know where Changing Lanes is going to take you but it's a heck of a ride. Samuel L. Jackson is one of the best actors there is. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Apr 12, 2002
26% The Sweetest Thing (2002) " Remember the movie critic Sony invented to give their films good reviews? Not even he would like this movie. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Apr 12, 2002
C- 29% The Time Machine (2002) " This version of H.G. Wells' Time Machine was directed by H.G. Wells' great-grandson. They should have found Orson Welles' great-grandson. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Mar 8, 2002
D 38% 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002) " What I learned from this movie: Absitenence can be a very good thing. Especially from box offices where this film is playing. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Mar 1, 2002
B 63% We Were Soldiers (2002) " The sentimental cliches mar an otherwise excellent film. A powerful performance from Mel Gibson and a brutal 90-minute battle sequence that does everything but issue you a dog-tag and an M-16. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Mar 1, 2002
C 19% Collateral Damage (2002) " Compared to Traffic and Spy Games, films that deal with similar themes, this is mediocre movie-making ... The studio should not have released this film. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Feb 11, 2002
C+ 42% Big Fat Liar (2002) " Home Alone goes Hollywood, a funny premise until the kids start pulling off stunts not even Steven Spielberg would know how to do. Besides, real movie producers aren't this nice. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Feb 11, 2002
34% I Am Sam (2001) " TV-movie territory with three great performances. But I started crying 20 seconds into the movie and didn't stop till it was over. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
85% Gosford Park (2001) " One of Robert Altman's best which is another way of saying 'one of film's best.' And at least eight reasons Oscar needs an ensemble acting category. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
32% Charlotte Gray (2002) " Cate Blanchet made more movies this year than MGM and she was excellent in all of them. Her best shots for an Oscar nomination? Supporting actress in Bandits and Best Actress in Charlotte Grey. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
85% Monster's Ball (2002) " Yes, Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Berry give Oscar caliber performances. But so do Peter Boyle and Puff Daddy. When all the performances are excellent, critics' understand it's the direction. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
76% Black Hawk Down (2001) " A war movie so unflinching and so real there are scenes here and effects here that would make George S. Patton wince. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
75% A Beautiful Mind (2001) " You can't believe Russell Crowe is the same actor who won an Oscar one year ago for Gladiator. The film has a reveal so startling I almost got whiplash, shaking my head in amazement. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
67% Ali (2001) " Will Smith's Muhammed Ali isn't an impersonation, it's a transformation. There is no narration to tell us the story, no treacly music cues to tell us when to cry. Some audiences might be disconcerted at being treated so intelligently. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 27, 2001
91% The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) " Maybe by his second year in Hogwarts, Harry Potter will learn the trick to making a movie this good but don't bet on it. It's one of the best films of the year. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 21, 2001
42% The Majestic (2001) " The Majestic, an unabashed homage to Frank Capra. There's a reason even in the 1930's they called his movies 'Capracorn,' but, even though I argued withthe ending, this one got to me. The most Christmassy of all the holiday. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
Posted Dec 21, 2001
41% Vanilla Sky (2001) " I have no idea why one of our most original film-makers would want to spend two years of his life translating someone else's movie from Spanish into English. And it wasn't such a good film in Spanish, either. " ‐ ABCNEWS.COM
