2/5 15% Sleepover (2004) Hollywood.com
Posted Nov 20, 2008

Posted Mar 7, 2003
4/4 87% The Quiet American (2003) " This story still seems timely and important. And there's an element of heartbreak to watching it now, with older and wiser eyes, because we know what will happen after Greene's story ends." — Denver Post
Posted Feb 7, 2003
4/4 96% Catch Me If You Can (2002) " This breezy caper movie becomes a soulful, incisive meditation on the way we were, and the way we are." — Denver Post
Posted Dec 25, 2002
3/4 91% Adaptation (2002) " Kaufman's carefully constructed screenplay emphasizes so many layers of duality, it's beyond gimmick. It's a world view." — Denver Post
Posted Dec 20, 2002

Posted Dec 20, 2002

Posted Dec 20, 2002

Posted Dec 18, 2002

Posted Dec 13, 2002
3.5/4 95% The Trials of Henry Kissinger (2002) " The film is insightful about Kissinger's background and history." — Denver Post
Posted Dec 13, 2002

Posted Nov 29, 2002
1.5/4 66% Solaris (2002) " A serious movie with serious ideas. But seriously, folks, it doesn't work." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 27, 2002
68% Treasure Planet (2002) " One wants good storytelling from animated films, and Treasure Planet is working with a good one. But, like pirates hoarding gold, it gets greedy trying to wow us with too much." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 27, 2002
3/4 92% Standing In The Shadows of Motown (2002) " The movie lets us realize this Sound, still so alive and vibrant today, was created by flesh-and-blood people, each of whom has a compelling story to tell." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 22, 2002

Posted Nov 22, 2002
4/4 87% Far From Heaven (2003) " It's a film that's loving toward all concerned, even when they cause each other pain. And it is overwhelmingly, refreshingly sincere even while being revisionist." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 15, 2002
3/4 83% All or Nothing (2002) " Leigh makes these lives count. And he allows a gawky actor like Spall -- who could too easily become comic relief in any other film -- to reveal his impressively delicate range." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 15, 2002
3.5/4 82% Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) " Not only are the special effects and narrative flow much improved, and Daniel Radcliffe more emotionally assertive this time around as Harry, but the film conjures the magic of author J.K. Rowling's books." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 15, 2002
2.5/4 76% Frida (2002) " [The screenplay's] flatness ultimately defeats a film that's always a treat to look at." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 8, 2002
3/4 76% 8 Mile (2002) " Making the city look grimy and lonely, dark and wasted but still alive with people who care, the film gets you rooting for the guys who want to make 'Mo' (short for Motown) a major player." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 8, 2002
4/4 92% Bloody Sunday (2002) " Bloody Sunday not only is a classic study in the way things can go devastatingly, violently wrong, but also a lesson in the importance of not letting that happen." — Denver Post
Posted Nov 1, 2002

Posted Oct 25, 2002
3.5/4 96% Bowling for Columbine (2002) " At its best, which occurs often, Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine rekindles the muckraking, soul-searching spirit of the 'Are we a sick society?' journalism of the 1960s." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 25, 2002
2.5/4 79% Punch-Drunk Love (2002) " Everything about Punch-Drunk Love works in a Being John Malkovich sort of way save one. Sandler. When your star doesn't work, it's hard to get us to buy into the rest of a movie as unusual as this." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 25, 2002
3.5/4 72% Auto Focus (2002) " Schrader, I think, has found an approach that suits the skewed cultural history of his material." — Denver Post

3.5/4 72% The Ring (2002) " It's far better than most gimmicky horror films." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 18, 2002
77% Quitting (2002) " It further declares its director, Zhang Yang of Shower, as a boldly experimental, contemporary stylist with a bright future." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 11, 2002
2/4 20% Knockaround Guys (2002) " Tiresomely derivative and hammily acted." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 11, 2002
2/4 70% White Oleander (2002) " Too many of [Astrid's] experiences with adults ring false." — Denver Post
Posted Oct 11, 2002
3/4 63% Moonlight Mile (2002) " Rewarding for what it attempts and often achieves." — Denver Post

Posted Oct 4, 2002

Posted Sep 27, 2002
2.5/4 59% Men with Brooms (2002) " It makes you believe the cast and crew thoroughly enjoyed themselves and believed in their small-budget film." — Denver Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
3.5/4 76% Igby Goes Down (2002) " This 'dark comedy' has an amazing amount of heart to go with its darkness." — Denver Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
3/4 47% The Banger Sisters (2002) " A shrewdly observed, relatively subtle and gentle satire that exudes genuine empathy and understanding for all its varied characters." — Denver Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
1.5/4 41% The Four Feathers (2002) " Weighted down with slow, uninvolving storytelling and flat acting." — Denver Post
