2/5 86% Inside Man (2006) " Until Inside Man, it didn't seem possible Spike Lee could make a dull film." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 21, 2006
4/5 87% The Proposition (2005) " It's a savagely entertaining look at the nature of man." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 11, 2006
3/4 36% Guy X (2005) " A film which lingers and haunts, but never compels." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 22, 2005
3/5 44% Goal! The Dream Begins (Goal!: The Impossible Dream) (2005) " Hardly a winner, but far from a bore draw." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 6, 2005
2/5 81% Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) " Click with it and there are elements to enjoy, but the title suggests a universal significance the film can't supply." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 16, 2005
3/5 80% Cinderella Man (2005) " Crowe is at his best in the ring and while it's hardly surprising that he's a convincing bruiser, he also manages to make a rather one-note character compelling." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 16, 2005
3/5 40% The Island (2005) " [T]here's plenty to enjoy in the more intimate, character-based moments, if you can cope with the relentlessly overblown action that surrounds them." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 9, 2005
3/5 38% The Skeleton Key (2005) " Only die-hard Hudson fans or desperate horror junkies will find The Skeleton Key worth unlocking." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 1, 2005
3/5 53% The Devil's Rejects (2005) " A hardcore horror film that will appall as much as entertain, The Devil's Rejects is both impressive and repugnant." — BBC.com
Posted Jul 26, 2005
2/5 46% Dark Water (2005) " Dark Water is a failure as a horror movie." — BBC.com
Posted Jul 19, 2005
3/5 27% Fantastic Four (2005) " The result is hardly fantastic, but it is quite a lot of fun." — BBC.com
Posted Jul 19, 2005
3/5 100% In My Father's Den (2005) " The tale of a prodigal son, misunderstanding and tragedy, this Den is well worth exploring." — BBC.com
Posted Jun 14, 2005
5/5 85% Batman Begins (2005) " A bold and brilliant superhero movie, Batman Begins is the best outing ever for the Caped Crusader." — BBC.com
Posted Jun 7, 2005
2/5 39% Kingdom of Heaven (2005) " It feels spectacularly empty." — BBC.com
Posted May 10, 2005
3/5 56% The Interpreter (2005) " A polished and preposterous thriller, The Interpreter offers two excellent actors a chance to show off, but it's not half as important as it thinks it is." — BBC.com
Posted Apr 19, 2005
2/5 20% The Ring Two (2005) " Watts is a terrific actress, but there's little she can do to cover the cavernous gaps in logic in Ehren Kruger's script." — BBC.com
Posted Apr 9, 2005
2/5 74% Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004) " There's an audience that will appreciate this, but they may struggle to see it through the smoke." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 1, 2005

Posted Mar 1, 2005
4/5 41% Hål i mitt hjärta, Ett (A Hole In My Heart) (2004) " Sends your brain whirring as well as your stomach churning -- quite a feat." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 26, 2005
5/5 98% Mean Streets (1973) " The Godfather made the mob glamorous. Mean Streets made it real. Martin Scorsese's ferocious, grimy 1973 classic is just as good as Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece, but it shows us criminal life lower down the food chain." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 25, 2005
4/5 96% Sideways (2004) " Very funny and very sad, Sideways is smashing." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 25, 2005
4/5 87% The Aviator (2004) " This is conservative, well-crafted, Oscar-friendly fare; rarely bold, but extremely well-told." — BBC.com
Posted Dec 21, 2004
2/5 39% Milwaukee Minnesota (2003) " A self-consciously quirky American indie pic, Milwaukee, Minnesota could really get on your nerves if you're not in the mood." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 30, 2004
4/5 59% Enduring Love (2004) " An intelligent and gripping dramatic thriller, Enduring Love is a real rarity: a film better than the book it's adapted from." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 23, 2004
2/5 10% Taxi (2004) " This is a cynical, tired example of filmmaking. Plenty of noise. Little va-va-voom." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 16, 2004
3/5 81% The Manchurian Candidate (2004) " A polished remake of a 60s classic." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 16, 2004
3/5 27% Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason (2004) " It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 16, 2004
3/5 77% Bad Santa (2003) " It's a one-joke flick, really, but a rib-cracking one at that." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 30, 2004
2/5 11% Exorcist - The Beginning (2004) " A botch job of mistimed scare scenes, bland characters and computer-generated hyenas." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 30, 2004
3/5 81% Layer Cake (2005) " It's slickly shot and enjoyable." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 19, 2004
2/5 29% The Punisher (2004) " A comicbook action movie with an unpleasant edge." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
3/5 88% Fond Kiss..., Ae, (Just a Kiss) (2004) " This is believable, intelligent filmmaking. It's just that, considering the makers' pedigree, Ae Fond Kiss... is more of a peck than a smacker." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
1/5 21% Resident Evil - Apocalypse (2004) " A zombie movie as dead-eyed and soulless as its walking dead villains." — BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
3/5 76% The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004) BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
2/5 39% Man on Fire (2004) BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
3/5 55% Cellular (2004) " It's the classic Hitchcock 'wrong man' set-up, pulled off with wit, energy, and a healthy sense of the ridiculous." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 21, 2004
3/5 95% Hero (2004) " Visually spectacular but slight on story." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 21, 2004
3/5 60% Wimbledon (2004) " A join-the-dots romantic comedy, Wimbledon is worth watching for the magnetism of Paul Bettany." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 21, 2004
5/5 91% The Shawshank Redemption (1994) " Freeman, in particular, is exceptional. His performance is so unshowy it can easily go unnoticed, but it's the soul of Shawshank." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 14, 2004
4/5 86% Collateral (2004) " For Vincent's sharp-witted command of the cab and the echoes of The Third Man and Heat, Collateral is well worth targeting." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 14, 2004
4/5 76% Seom (The Isle) (2000) BBC.com
Posted Sep 14, 2004
4/5 51% Code 46 (2004) " Intelligent and original." — BBC.com

3/5 66% Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004) " This is ideal Friday night fodder if you're in the right mood." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 7, 2004
2/5 29% The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) " Diesel is an imposing screen presence even when growling risible dialogue." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 31, 2004
4/5 70% Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story (2004) " Crude, daft and hilarious, Dodgeball is the best mainstream American comedy in years." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 31, 2004
2/5 61% The Terminal (2004) " Hanks is a likeable actor but rarely a subtle one. Viktor is another cutesy emotional heart-tugger in the Forrest Gump mould, all galumphing slapstick." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 31, 2004
4/5 43% The Village (2004) " Go in with a snide attitude, desperate to see The Sixth Sense director fail, and you'll leave with your prejudices underpinned. Better to embrace the experience and allow Shyamalan to show off his sublime gift for suspense." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 19, 2004
2/5 9% Catwoman (2004) " For about 40 minutes Catwoman is campy, trashy and fun. Then it's just trash: dull and depressingly empty." — BBC.com
Posted Aug 17, 2004
3/5 64% 13 Going on 30 (2004) BBC.com
Posted Aug 10, 2004
4/5 58% I, Robot (2004) " Whether there's anything substantial under the sheen and CGI of Alex Proyas' glistening future vision is debatable, but this enjoyable, engrossing picture is at least intelligently artificial." — BBC.com
