3.5/4 87% The Matrix (1999) " Extremely violent, extremely preposterous, extremely entertaining, The Matrix succeeds at two extremely difficult tasks: as a vast, exciting virtual-reality movie and as a defibrillator for Keanu Reeves' big screen career." — Seattle Times
Posted Oct 21, 2013
2.5/4 91% Face/Off (1997) " Face/Off is a full-blooded, movie-going experience. It's 100 percent movie." — Seattle Times
Posted Aug 2, 2013
2/4 3% Speed 2 - Cruise Control (1997) " [A] truly horrid sequel." — Seattle Times
Posted May 28, 2013
63% Bitter Moon (1992) " You laugh, but you watch, and sometimes you watch without laughing at all. It's a cruise on the wild side with no Dramamine required." — Movieline
Posted Nov 12, 2001
12% The Crow: City of Angels (1996) " It verges on the misanthropic and necrophiliac; more in love with the absence of characters, their demise, than with flesh and blood." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
77% The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999) " Silly, sweet movie." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44% Multiplicity (1996) " Keaton does a dandy job by his four Dougs, but the problem is a script that assumes a physical comedian can do it all, including twisting characters to make them fit the plot line. It doesn't work." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
67% The Thomas Crown Affair (1999) " Top-notch!" — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
93% Dead Man Walking (1995) " Sarandon, who won the Oscar for Best Actress for this role, is superb, but Penn is extraordinary." — Film.com

80% The White Balloon (Badkonake sefid) (1995) " There are LONG stretches of... well, real time." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
96% Supercop (Police Story 3) (Ging chaat goo si 3: Chiu kap ging chaat) (1992) " Jackie Chan makes his second leap at the American movie audience, following up Rumble in the Bronx with a far sharper mix of stunts, martial arts and Chan's own brand of breathtaking slapstick comedy." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36% Blue Streak (1999) " Since the characters are pretty simple, and the plot wafer-thin, there's not a lot for Martin to do but fall back on wild histrionics and facial explosions." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
61% Return to Me (2000) " It's a genuine attempt at a genuine movie." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
79% Rumble in the Bronx (1995) " Chan, doing everything at once including all his own stunts, has an infectious energy that will help to remind you why you love movies." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38% The Substitute (1995) " An angry, white, mercenary movie out to spill blood and beat its manly chest." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28% Three to Tango (1999) " Three to Tango isn't a waste of time, it's just a middling affair, which would have been better as NBC's 'Romantic Comedy Movie of the Week'." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
61% Mission: Impossible (1996) " A fun and diverting summer movie, well worth the price of admission." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
94% Fargo (1996) " Uniquely fascinating." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8% Bulletproof (1996) " The movie has a smirking homophobic bent and never makes you care or believe in the characters as much as in the first fifteen minutes." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16% The Astronaut's Wife (1999) " All the leads need to be in a better production." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25% Double Jeopardy (1999) " Double Jeopardy principally works as a suspense film for an early autumn evening." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
97% Anne Frank Remembered (1995) " If this is not the best film about the Holocaust, it does strongly chronicle the sad fate of one of its most famous victims." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2% Battlefield Earth (2000) " The only people this film could recruit are members of the rock band Kiss, who, with their high-heeled boots and face paint, might figure they've got a spot if this alien thing ever really came down." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27% House on Haunted Hill (1999) " Instead of thrill and chills, it's kills and spills." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48% Harriet the Spy (1996) " There's dancing, and bubble blowing and bed bouncing that's entirely aimless and Harriet's neighborhood sleuthing becomes particularly pointless." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
88% Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys) (1995) " At one point Cole says that viewing the past is like watching a good movie, 'Every time you see it it's different, because you're different.' 12 Monkeys is a film that will do that, change as you change." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
80% Bowfinger (1999) " Pleasant, but not terribly original." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
73% My Dog Skip (2000) " My Dog Skip probes the concaves of memory to tell an honest tale and produce what is easily one of the best films for the entire family." — Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21% Inspector Gadget (1999) " If 700 monkeys typed for 700 years, one of them would come up with Hamlet. Give them a week, and six would come up with Inspector Gadget." — Seattle Times
