88% Nun va Goldoon (A Moment of Innocence) (Bread and Flower) (1999) " Too smug and too self-indulgent." — New York Post
Posted May 20, 2014
58% Blast from the Past (1999) " Thanks to a clever script, tight direction, a first-rate cast and the dynamite combination of Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone, Blast from the Past blows away the recent crop of romantic comedies." — New York Post
Posted Mar 21, 2014
89% Rushmore (1998) " A quirky, sometimes hilarious and often touching comic fable." — New York Post
Posted Mar 17, 2014
75% Wisconsin Death Trip (1999) " The main problem with Wisconsin Death Trip is the way the format distances you from the subject matter, so that stories may shock, but they never move you." — New York Post
Posted Mar 3, 2014
94% Dark Days (2000) " A fascinating, beautifully photographed portrait of a vanished community: a group of homeless people who built a shanty town in the train tunnels beneath Penn Station." — New York Post
Posted Mar 3, 2014
97% Chicken Run (2000) " It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years." — New York Post
Posted Aug 4, 2013
2.5/4 —— Two Brothers and Two Others (2002) New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2006
3.5/4 93% Riding Giants (2004) " Magnificent if overlong." — New York Post
Posted Jul 9, 2004
2/4 50% America's Heart and Soul (2004) " Watching this film from veteran commercial director and cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg is like being subjected to an endless ad for Coke or insurance." — New York Post
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2.5/4 7% Kaena - The Prophecy (Kaena: La prophétie) (2004) " The film's plot, themes and dialogue are markedly less inspired and original than its imagery." — New York Post
Posted Jun 25, 2004
2.5/4 78% Two Brothers (2004) " You don't have to be a cat-lover to fall in love with the cuddly young tigers who star in Two Brother." — New York Post
Posted Jun 25, 2004
3/4 61% The Terminal (2004) " A gentle alternative to noisy kid-oriented action flicks, raucous comedies and the agitprop of Fahrenheit 9/11." — New York Post
Posted Jun 18, 2004
1/4 21% Poco più di un anno fa (Adored: Diary of a Porn Star) (2003) " Not only is Adored amateurish and mawkish even by the standards of American 'gaysploitation' cinema, it's weirdly shy about showing nudity and sex." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2004
2/4 23% Raising Helen (2004) " Can't decide whether it's a romance, a fish-out- of-water flick, a teen-parent conflict story, or a tale of sibling rivalry and reconciliation, and therefore fails at each." — New York Post
Posted May 28, 2004
1/4 16% Twist (2004) " More tedious than affecting, the film feels like an excuse for reproducing more of the kind of kinky imagery notoriously employed by fashion photographer Steven Meisel in his creepy pedophile advertisements for Calvin Klein." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2004
1.5/4 44% Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d'enfants) (2004) " Slick but painfully precious, it strains to be darkly romantic but is bereft of genuine feeling." — New York Post
Posted May 21, 2004
1.5/4 54% Troy (2004) " The lackluster ensemble hired by the director is overwhelmed by the generally impressive sets and crowd scenes (aided by computer-generated images), by the task of playing epic heroes and by David Benioff's rambling, tone-deaf screenplay." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2004
2/4 31% Breakin' All the Rules (2004) " For the most part, Breakin' All the Rules feels like a Richard (Love Actually) Curtis film but without the inventiveness and wit." — New York Post
Posted May 14, 2004
2.5/4 61% Valentin (2004) " A sweet, often poignant little film." — New York Post
Posted May 7, 2004
1.5/4 7% Envy (2004) " An embarrassingly unfunny black comedy." — New York Post
Posted Apr 30, 2004
2.5/4 64% 13 Going on 30 (2004) " It's a surprisingly charming and fresh comedy that only becomes painfully saccharine in its last 20 minutes." — New York Post
Posted Apr 23, 2004
2/4 29% The Punisher (2004) " Travolta is terrific as a bad guy, making Saint almost sympathetic. His co-stars however, flounder in a sea of bad lines, with poor Romijn-Stamos getting stuck with the worst." — New York Post
Posted Apr 15, 2004
0.5/4 4% The Whole Ten Yards (2003) " A dumb, pointless sequel." — New York Post
Posted Apr 9, 2004
2.5/4 55% The Girl Next Door (2004) " Though shamelessly derivative and amoral, The Girl Next Door is nevertheless funnier and smarter than most of the pathetic dreck aimed at the nation's teens." — New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2004
2.5/4 81% Hellboy (2004) " Surprisingly enjoyable." — New York Post
Posted Apr 2, 2004
2.5/4 25% Walking Tall (2004) " Exciting stuff in its primitive, predictable way." — New York Post
Posted Apr 2, 2004
2.5/4 91% Shattered Glass (2003) New York Post
Posted Mar 27, 2004
1.5/4 25% Never Die Alone (2004) " A violent, would-be film noir that strains with limited success for tragic resonance and gritty authenticity." — New York Post
Posted Mar 26, 2004
1.5/4 35% Games People Play (2004) " Its thrills are too cheap to be worth a $10 movie ticket." — New York Post
Posted Mar 18, 2004
2.5/4 63% Starsky & Hutch (2004) " Probably the most enjoyable Hollywood update of a decades-old TV series since the first Brady Bunch movie." — New York Post
Posted Mar 5, 2004
3/4 89% Risk/Reward (2004) " A quietly compelling documentary that is refreshing in both form and content." — New York Post
Posted Feb 27, 2004
1.5/4 22% Dirty Dancing - Havana Nights (2004) " Becomes laugh-out-loud awful, with dreadful, lame lines delivered painfully badly -- as if a different screenwriter and director had taken over for the movie's final act." — New York Post
Posted Feb 27, 2004
2/4 49% The Passion of the Christ (2004) " Mel Gibson's Passion, though well-acted, technically impressive and initially moving, is for the most part not beautiful and certainly not ennobling." — New York Post
Posted Feb 24, 2004
1.5/4 30% Teknolust (2002) " Fails as entertainment, being so ineptly directed and written it often has the feel of a high school production by kids with more money and ambition than talent." — New York Post
Posted Feb 20, 2004
1.5/4 46% Eurotrip (2003) " A lazy and uninspired knock-off of the hilarious 2002 movie Road Trip." — New York Post
Posted Feb 20, 2004
2.5/4 94% After the Life: Trilogy 3 (2002) " The fine performances by Blanc and Melki give Belvaux' whole clever undertaking some needed weight." — New York Post
Posted Feb 13, 2004
3/4 96% Osama (2004) " That it is such a powerful and indeed beautiful film is simply extraordinary." — New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2004
1/4 61% The Dreamers (2004) " A kind of art-house Showgirls -- which actually exceeds Showgirls in its self-indulgence, shallowness and sheer stupidity." — New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2004
2/4 62% An Amazing Couple (Un couple épatant) (2004) " For the most part it's either clunky (as when Alain speaks directly to the camera) or shrill." — New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2004
3/4 —— On The Run (1999) New York Post
Posted Jan 31, 2004
3/4 73% On the Run: Trilogy 1 (2002) " An enjoyably spare and fast- moving French thriller." — New York Post
Posted Jan 29, 2004
3.5/4 93% Touching the Void (2004) " One of the best climbing movies ever made, doing justice to a sport that has not been well served by the cinema." — New York Post
Posted Jan 22, 2004
3/4 86% Crimson Gold (2004) " It offers a rare glimpse into the lives of the Iranian wealthy. And it does so in the service of a surprisingly bleak, radically class-conscious vision of Iranian life." — New York Post
Posted Jan 16, 2004
2/4 26% Along Came Polly (2004) " Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination." — New York Post
Posted Jan 16, 2004
2/4 27% Paycheck (2003) " Unlike Woo's Face/Off or Broken Arrow, there are no stunts, special effects or kinetic moments in Paycheck that really blow you away." — New York Post
Posted Dec 25, 2003
3/4 98% The Fog of War - Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara (2003) " Despite its more tendentious moments and sometimes irritating slickness, Fog of War is every bit as fascinating and unnerving as its subject." — New York Post
Posted Dec 19, 2003
2/4 35% Mona Lisa Smile (2003) " Sanctimonious, relentlessly predictable and willfully ignorant of the period it's set in." — New York Post
Posted Dec 19, 2003
2.5/4 72% Girl With a Pearl Earring (2004) " It would be hard to overpraise Johansson -- who could hardly look more perfect for the part -- for her extraordinary ability to convey so much emotion with so few words." — New York Post
Posted Dec 12, 2003
1/4 21% Honey (2003) " Its by-the- numbers plot is depressingly familiar, and each line of dialogue is so predictable that the script could have been generated by a computer." — New York Post
Posted Dec 5, 2003
0.5/4 12% Timeline (2003) " This is not just a 'B-movie' -- it's a B-movie that fails to entertain on any level." — New York Post
