Posted May 27, 2004
2.5/4 31% Breakin' All the Rules (2004) " A humorous, light-on-its-feet film that's vaguely similar to 2003's Down With Love, with a modern, urban twist." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 13, 2004
2/4 26% Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius (2004) " While the ensemble cast is often warm and engaging, Caviezel fails to bring his character to life." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 29, 2004
2.5/4 29% The Punisher (2004) " As an action film, The Punisher thrills with scenes of spectacular violence and death." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 15, 2004
3/4 25% Walking Tall (2004) " Entertaining." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 1, 2004
2.5/4 81% Hellboy (2004) " If you're a Hellboy fan, the film is a must-see. For others, don't bother." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 1, 2004
1/4 47% Hidalgo (2004) " One horse movie that's just lame. And that's straight from the horse's mouth." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 4, 2004
2.5/4 93% Touching the Void (2004) " Will be enjoyed most by climbing enthusiasts, those familiar with the incident or those who just appreciate a tale of survival against impossible odds." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 4, 2004
1.5/4 17% The Perfect Score (2004) " It delivers nothing more than paint-by-number, visually appealing drivel." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 29, 2004

2/4 57% Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003) " The suits who came up with this movie aren't even hiding the fact that if they put Looney Tunes in a movie, kids and parents will come see it, even if there is no plot." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 13, 2003
2.5/4 38% Brother Bear (2003) " A sentimental and enjoyable family film." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 31, 2003
1/4 31% Underworld (2003) " The story quickly bogs down into a super bloody, super loud mess that even the elegant Beckinsale can't save." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 19, 2003
3/4 59% Secondhand Lions (2003) " Everything about Secondhand Lions seems unlikely, outlandish and larger than life. But director Tim McCanlies ... makes it all work by throwing in charm and likability at just the right moments." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 18, 2003
3/4 82% Step Into Liquid (2003) " With goofy, offbeat charm and some incredible surfing footage shot at a host of exotic locales, Step Into Liquid goes beyond the average surf documentary." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 21, 2003
2/4 18% The Medallion (2003) " The Medallion is a fun film, but a hokey story and schlocky special effects make it a dull gem in Chan's crown." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 21, 2003
2.5/4 73% Buffalo Soldiers (2001) " A darkly funny, but critical view of military renegades and the system that coddled them." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Posted Jul 9, 2003
2.5/4 46% Sinbad - Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) " In many ways, Sinbad is good summer fun, if a bit too dark and moralistic for the littlest ones in the family." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 2, 2003
3/4 70% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) " Unlike the first two movies, this one doesn't bear the directorial mark of James Cameron, but it still manages to deliver heart-pounding suspense and dark science-fiction vision of a world destroyed." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 2, 2003

Posted Mar 28, 2003
3/4 91% Coral Reef Adventure (2004) " The large-frame IMAX camera lends itself beautifully to filming the teeming life on the reefs, making this gorgeous film a must for everyone from junior scientists to grown-up fish lovers." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 7, 2003
2.5/4 33% Tears of the Sun (2003) " Shortcomings are saved by fast-paced combat scenes." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 7, 2003
1.5/4 68% Treasure Planet (2002) " The plot's clearly mythic structure may owe more to Disney's strong sense of formula than to the original story. But while the highly predictable narrative falls short, Treasure Planet is truly gorgeous to behold." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 27, 2002
4/4 97% Spirited Away (2001) " This gorgeous epic is guaranteed to lift the spirits of the whole family." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 17, 2002
3/4 47% Mad Love (2002) " Interesting both as a historical study and as a tragic love story." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 27, 2002
2/4 61% Blue Crush (2002) " Blue Crush follows the formula, but throws in too many conflicts to keep the story compelling." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 16, 2002
2.5/4 86% Lilo & Stitch (2002) " A funny, offbeat tale of a broken family's search for love." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 21, 2002
2/4 92% Dogtown and Z-Boys (2001) " At times, however, Dogtown and Z-Boys lapses into an insider's lingo and mindset that the uninitiated may find hard to follow, or care about." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 31, 2002
3/4 77% Undercover Brother (2002) " The enjoyable Undercover Brother, a zany mix of Saturday Night Live-style parody, '70s Blaxploitation films and goofball action comedy gone wild, dishes out a ton of laughs that everyone can enjoy." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 31, 2002
3/4 93% Scratch (2002) " Time with this diverse group of record-spinners makes you appreciate them as the groundbreaking musicians they are." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 5, 2002

Posted Feb 14, 2002
14% Black Knight (2001) " Thanks to Lawrence, Black Knight manages to crank out a handful of laughable scenes." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 20, 2001
14% The One (2001) " Delivers a fun hyper-action romp." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 1, 2001
21% Ghosts of Mars (2001) " A muddled mix of wayward rock video, sci-fi schlock and blood-splattering horror." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 23, 2001
44% Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within (2001) " The result is a ground-breaking achievement that could be recommended for its eye-popping visual prowess alone. Fortunately, these computerized thespians also engage the heart and mind." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 10, 2001
51% Kiss of the Dragon (2001) " A noisy and bloody thrill ride best enjoyed by the young at heart." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
