Posted Oct 25, 2012
3/5 74% Shaolin (2011) " Shaolin is simultaneously regal and stilted, stirring and sluggish." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2011
1.5/5 10% Aeon Flux (2005) " Breeds plenty of contempt." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 6, 2005
3/5 64% Roll Bounce (2005) " An airy, nostalgic celebration of roller disco." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 26, 2005
3.5/5 89% Paradise Now (2005) " One viewing will leave you with a clearer understanding about why these desperate men commit these desperate acts." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 26, 2005
1.5/5 13% Stealth (2005) " Stealth flails around with cheesy techno-babble, a lame attempt at an inter-office romance between Lucas and Biel, and a bizarre final act that reeks of desperation." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 31, 2005
1.5/5 25% House of Wax (2005) " A script that offers few thrills and a slapdash story." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 14, 2005
2.5/5 23% Fat Albert (2004) " An uneven effort." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2004
3/5 96% Born Into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids (2004) " Reminds us of the curative power of art in an ugly world." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 10, 2004
2/5 8% First Daughter (2004) " Holmes, who's clearly nearer to 30 than 20, never quite fits into the college milieu." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 26, 2004
1/5 5% The Cookout (2004) " [A] low-flame comedy." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 5, 2004
1.5/5 18% Paparazzi (2004) " This clunky revenge thriller seems to have a target audience of Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn and Arnold Schwarzenegger." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 5, 2004
1.5/5 15% White Chicks (2004) " An army of writers reheat gender-bending slapstick with middling results." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 3, 2004
2/5 11% New York Minute (2004) " After a brisk opening half-hour, New York Minute's promising start devolves into a parade of chase and slapstick bits you've seen a dozen times before." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 7, 2004
2.5/5 25% Walking Tall (2004) " The film promises vigilante payback, then delivers it without the kind of underlying moral outrage needed to put it across." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 3, 2004
2/5 16% The Big Bounce (2004) " With a running time clocking in at less than 90 minutes, the movie has a slimmed- down-in-the- editing-room feel; plots points often don't connect." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 3, 2004
2/5 19% Chasing Liberty (2004) " Moore's personality void keeps sucking air out of the picture." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 11, 2004
4/5 78% Tupac - Resurrection (2003) " Director Lauren Lazin masterfully stitches together bits and pieces of Shakur's interviews to underline the big, Shakespearean themes -- ambition, violence, redemption -- that seemed to define his life." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 14, 2003
2/5 4% House of the Dead (2003) " Without a joystick, audiences can't relish the cheap thrills the video game offers. It's about as much fun as looking over someone else's shoulder at the arcade." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 13, 2003
2.5/5 7% From Justin To Kelly (2003) " Fans of the television show may show up for this one, but given that an American Idol sequel has already ended its run, audiences are likely to find it stale." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 29, 2003
1.5/5 41% Wrong Turn (2003) " A tedious slasher picture with yet another Inbred Monster as its star villain." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 8, 2003
2.5/5 28% It Runs in the Family (2003) " Jesse Wigutow's mostly flaccid script provides a few memorable showdown scenes between father Kirk and son Michael." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 25, 2003
2/5 21% Basic (2003) " The dizzying plot twists of Basic muddle up a story which ultimately comes off as a shell game of a movie." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 7, 2003
2/5 7% Boat Trip (2003) " Stale slapstick and predictable, raunchy sight gags (usually involving a banana)." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 27, 2003
2.5/5 30% The Hunted (2003) " William Friedkin's skilled old hand pushes The Hunted along so briskly that you almost don't mind the howlers in the script or the expression-starved performance from Benicio Del Toro. Almost, but not quite." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2003
1.5/5 11% National Security (2003) " It's all right out of Beverly Hills Cop, without the originality the premise had 20 years ago or Eddie Murphy's grinning manic humor." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 19, 2003
1/5 21% The Hot Chick (2002) " Rob Schneider's infantile cross-dressing routines fill The Hot Chick, the latest gimmick from this unimaginative comedian." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 16, 2002
3/5 92% Standing In The Shadows of Motown (2002) " A worthy tribute documentary that digs up recognition for the musicians who backed up Marvin Gaye, the Temptations and other Motown legends." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 29, 2002
3/5 18% Trapped (2002) " Trapped won't score points for political correctness, but it may cause parents a few sleepless hours -- a sign of its effectiveness." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2002
3/5 72% Das Experiment (The Experiment) (2001) " An often gripping dramatization of a psychological research project about the prison dynamics between guards and convicts." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 20, 2002
1.5/5 14% Swimfan (2002) " Flat performances and a cumbersome plot keep the flame low on this crude teen potboiler." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 13, 2002
2.5/5 48% Undisputed (2002) " Walter Hill's pulpy, stylized boxing melodrama Undisputed nearly overcomes its questionable in-the-ring match-up with solid fight choreography and gritty prison authenticity." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 25, 2002
1.5/5 30% The Country Bears (2002) " Functions more as a product than a movie." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 11, 2002
2/5 60% K-19: The Widowmaker (2002) " Bigelow handles the nuclear crisis sequences evenly but milks drama when she should be building suspense, and drags out too many scenes toward the end that should move quickly." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 28, 2002
3/5 48% Eight Legged Freaks (2002) " B-type dialogue -- dirty jokes, overly emphatic declarations and other ripe lines -- make the movie camp fun." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 19, 2002
1.5/5 10% Juwanna Mann (2002) " Writer Bradley Allenstein peppers the script with a lot of lame locker-room jokes that appear on the horizon long before they hit the screen." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2002
3/5 91% Minority Report (2002) " Fairly similar to A.I. -- filled with provocative ideas and technically flawless, but somewhat disjointed." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 24, 2002
2/5 28% Sugar & Spice (2001) " A badly executed black comedy for the teen set." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
1.5/5 8% The New Guy (2002) " For a jaunt into teen exploitation, The New Guy is as aggressively unfunny as they come." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 12, 2002
2/5 49% Unfaithful (2002) " Adrian Lyne's remake of Chabrol's La Femme Infidele isn't as much an examination of an adulterous affair as it is a commercial for it." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 10, 2002
3.5/5 77% Changing Lanes (2002) " As a meditation on the way sadistic impulses can destroy men, Changing Lanes sails onto the open road and away from the traffic jams." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 12, 2002
3/5 52% American Chai (2002) " The movie is amateurish, but it's a minor treat." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 5, 2002
2/5 30% All About the Benjamins (2002) " Many of Benjamins' elements feel like they've been patched in from an episode of Miami Vice." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 8, 2002
2.5/5 23% John Q (2002) " The mushy finale turns John Q into a movie-of-the-week tearjerker." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 15, 2002
1/5 3% Rollerball (2002) " Another reminder that most remakes are accidents waiting to happen." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2002
42% Big Fat Liar (2002) " Giamatti's gift for neurotic mayhem lifts Big Fat Liar out of the realm of factory-produced children's pictures that preach various life lessons." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2002
2.5/5 79% Audition (Ă”dishon) (1999) " What it lacks in savage wit, Audition more than makes up for in psychological horror." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2001
21% Joe Somebody (2001) " The movie's choppy, erratic tone is as irritating as its unlikable characters." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2001
28% Not Another Teen Movie (2001) " Unlike Young Frankenstein, Airplane or the first Naked Gun, Not Another Teen Movie fails to stick to a story and carry it through to the end." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 18, 2001
14% Thirteen Ghosts (13 Ghosts) (2001) " Uses state-of-the-art visual effects as a substitute for any kind of a clear story." — Boxoffice Magazine
