Posted Aug 9, 2002
3/4 74% Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams (2002) "It's refreshing to see a kids' action movie in which the most crucial 'special effect' is a rubber band. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Aug 7, 2002
2.5/4 38% Full Frontal (2002) "The video work is so grainy and rough, so dependent on being 'naturalistic' rather than carefully lit and set up, that it's exhausting to watch. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Aug 2, 2002
2.5/4 74% Signs (2002) "The soul-searching deliberateness of the film, although leavened nicely with dry absurdist wit, eventually becomes too heavy for the plot. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Aug 2, 2002
0/4 1% The Master of Disguise (2002) "Neither [Carvey] nor semi-competent director Perry Andelin Blake have the ability to sustain a scene or idea. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Jul 26, 2002
2/4 54% Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) "With so many impersonations to keep track off, director Jay Roach winds up moving between Myers and Myers so often that the editing feels like a crude cut-and-paste job. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jul 26, 2002
1/4 30% The Country Bears (2002) "Trying to figure out the rules of the Country Bear universe -- when are bears bears and when are they like humans, only hairier -- would tax Einstein's brain. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jul 26, 2002

Posted Jul 19, 2002
2.5/4 62% The Salton Sea (2002) "For what it is, it's well-done -- a stylized-beyond-reality derivation of Natural Born Killers, perhaps. Or a more gonzo version of Go or Blow. But the heart has been stylized out of it. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jul 12, 2002
2.5/4 80% Sunshine State (2002) "Sunshine State is a fine example of a carefully written film. But you shouldn't be too aware that a movie is well-written. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jul 12, 2002

Posted Jul 3, 2002
3/4 77% The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002) "Recalls The Virgin Suicides, Ghost World and Waking Life. If it's not as good as those, it isn't for lack of heart or ambition. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Jun 21, 2002
3.5/4 90% Minority Report (2002) "Spielberg's realization of a near-future America is masterful. This makes Minority Report necessary viewing for sci-fi fans, as the film has some of the best special effects ever. " ‐ Denver Post

2.5/4 32% Windtalkers (2002) "I wish Windtalkers had had more faith in the dramatic potential of this true story. This would have been better than the fiction it has concocted, and there still could have been room for the war scenes. " ‐ Denver Post

3/4 58% The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) "In trying to make Earnest more of a visual romp than it needs to be, [Parker] almost stomps the Wildeness out of its literary wit. But he doesn't. The good humor and lively acting survive. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted May 17, 2002
2.5/4 65% Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) "By going forward into the past to create a 'prequel' trilogy, Lucas has trapped himself in a fundamentally anticlimactic venture. " ‐ Denver Post
