Posted Dec 6, 2005
3.5/5 86% The Original Kings of Comedy (2000) " It is Bernie Mac who is the true King of Comedy here, following in the footsteps of Pryor and Murphy before him as he crosses from church-raised testifying, to furious black cultural theorizing, to barely controlled comedic genius." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 6, 2005
1.5/5 10% I Dreamed of Africa (2000) " Shockingly boring and stupifyingly umoving." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
2.5/5 73% Remember the Titans (2000) " Is perfecting the art of middle-of-the-road really what should be applauded in movie making today?" — Film Threat

Posted Dec 8, 2002
1/5 52% Bounce (2000) " Heavy-handed, unbelievable, predictable, and when without Gwenyth, a not very exciting film to find oneself bouncing ultimately boredly through." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002

Posted Dec 8, 2002
3/5 47% The Perfect Storm (2000) " The perfect example, of how the newest visual effects movies have the capacity to overwhelm everything -- from actors to plotlines -- except in the end, maybe, their audiences." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
1.5/5 63% Saving Grace (2000) " It's a feel good British movie ideal for gangs of middle-aged, middle-minded women on bored afternoons, and toxically saccharine to anyone else." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
5/5 82% X-Men (2000) " Somebody, at least, made sure that a movie based on a comic book wasn't a comic book on screen, but instead, thankfully, just a really good movie." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
2.5/5 76% Tigerland (2000) " At best, Tigerland is not much more than a low-rated, cable-channel movie-of-the-week that should be channel-surfed right on by." — Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
53% Save the Last Dance (2001) " A Teen Dance Movie you don't have to remove your brain or be obsessed with getting-down to actually like." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Jan 12, 2001
86% State and Main (2000) " Mamet has his work cut out for him by making egotistical stars and exploitative directors seem funnily new. But State and Main engages nonetheless." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Dec 22, 2000
53% The Family Man (2000) " [The] playfully woven combination of cool comedy and realistic romance provides audiences across the board with one of the few films this season that is likely to entertain almost everyone." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Dec 22, 2000
42% Miss Congeniality (2000) " Gracie isn't just unattractive outside, she's unattractive on the inside, and the whole point of Makeover Movies is you're supposed to want to identify with Cinderella." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Dec 22, 2000
54% What Women Want (2001) " It's as caught up in despising macho men as it is disgusted with modern women." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Dec 15, 2000
88% Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen (2000) " The Exorcist still packs a wallop of terror for those with the strength of stomach for it." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
49% Bedazzled (2000) " You can't help but feel a little, when watching Bedazzled, like Fraser and Hurley have sold their talents short in this episodically silly film." — TNT's Rough Cut
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
67% Small Time Crooks (2000) " A bit slow, a bit been-done, and the bottom line is that Allen in a pair of shorts these days is a little rough on the eyes." — TNT's Rough Cut
