Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
81% Road to Perdition (2002) " ...Mendes manages once again to use his overt direction to create a quietly powerful film." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Nov 8, 2002
76% 8 Mile (2002) " Book-ended by two pivotal and compelling sequences, 8 Mile, like its star, is best when it focuses on the music." — Ace Weekly (Lexington, KY)
Posted Nov 8, 2002
3/5 82% Derrida (2002) " It's incredibly enjoyable to watch Derrida pick apart, and fight against, the very process and premise of making a film about someone, particularly him." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 3, 2002
41% The Four Feathers (2002) " Black Hawk Down by way of English imperialism, The Four Feathers delivers a compelling, if unsatisfactory, statement about the heroism of soldiering without condemning the diplomacy behind it." — Ace Weekly (Lexington, KY)
Posted Oct 29, 2002
14% Ghost Ship (2002) " Aside from its jarring opening sequence -- imagine The Love Boat crossed with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre -- Ghost Ship is a fairly rote ghoulish tale." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 29, 2002
38% Sweet Home Alabama (2002) " A romantic comedy, sans much of the comedy, this clunky Reese Witherspoon vehicle glows with the powerful allure of its shiny, irresistible young star but little else." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
79% Punch-Drunk Love (2002) " An unnerving and exhilarating romantic comedy that is neither romantic nor comic ... Punch Drunk Love is more revelatory than it is enjoyable." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
90% Minority Report (2002) " Making good on the best aspects of A.I., namely that stark and singular look of a future dominated but not quite overwhelmed by technology, Spielberg creates a stunning world where the past and present collide." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
89% Spider-Man (2002) " Sam Raimi is brilliant behind the camera and Spider-Man is a faithful and fun adaptation." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
9% Stealing Harvard (2002) " Seemingly a vehicle to showcase the Canadian's inane ramblings, Stealing Harvard is a smorgasbord of soliloquies about nothing delivered by the former Mr. Drew Barrymore." — Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 23, 2002
3.5/5 66% Brown Sugar (2002) " Manages to deliver the familiar boy-meets-girl story in a fresh way." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 11, 2002
3.5/5 81% Biggie and Tupac (2002) " Broomfield seems to uncover a massive scoop here, revealing the multitude of people involved and the possible motivations behind the killings of his titular subjects." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2002
2/5 71% Virgil Bliss (2001) " Shows moments of promise but ultimately succumbs to cliches and pat storytelling." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 14, 2002
3/5 86% El Hijo de la novia (Son of the Bride) (2002) " A somewhat disappointing and meandering saga." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 22, 2002
.5/5 0% State Property (2002) " A dull, simple-minded and stereotypical tale of drugs, death and mind-numbing indifference on the inner-city streets." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 19, 2002
3/5 100% Yana's Friends (2001) " Amusing with one unforgettable gag, Kaplun's film does a passable job of portraying the hardships endured by immigrants but is more notable for placing a light-hearted tale in a decidedly heavy time and place." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2001
20% History Lessons (2001) " A one-note experience, more memorable for what it sets out to accomplish than what it actually does." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2001
58% Serendipity (2001) " Like purchasing a CD of '80s super-hits off a late-night infomercial, watching Serendipity leaves you feeling somewhat violated but no less delighted at the trespass." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 4, 2001
30% The Animal (2001) " The one running joke in The Animal becomes familiar and predictable all too soon." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2001
10% What's the Worst That Could Happen? (2001) " Answers its own eponymous question time and again by straddling the unamusing and the offensive." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2001
3.5/5 49% The Price of Milk (2001) " The Price of Milk is a surprisingly winning fable of misguided love." — Filmcritic.com
Posted Feb 14, 2001
3.5/5 76% Winter Sleepers (1997) Filmcritic.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/5 43% Center Stage (2000) " Ultimately the story line here is as stupid as the final 'rock' ballet." — Filmcritic.com
