74% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) " In the final analysis, the marquee names are all that really distinguish Eyes Wide Shut from, say, a really well-photographed installment in the Emmanuelle series. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 13, 2014
18% Trippin (1999) " The messages, in other words, are mixed -- which makes them pretty much consistent with the perspective of a hormone-driven 17-year-old boy. Viewed in that context, Trippin' doesn't fall quite so far. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 28, 2014
6% Son of the Pink Panther (1993) " Stay away at all costs. Do not be lulled by nostalgic memories of Inspector Clouseau's malapropisms; do not be fooled by slick print or TV ads; do not let your kids talk you into it. " ‐ New Times
Posted Jul 23, 2014
15% Dead Man on Campus (1998) " This Dead Man is a stiff. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 15, 2014
5% The Avengers (1998) " Thurman and Fiennes look great in the roles, but they don't generate a fraction of the kinky sexual chemistry that Macnee and Rigg exuded. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Posted Jun 6, 2014
3/4 90% In the Mood for Love (2001) " It bleeds color and passion like a Monet in an impressionistic, visually ravishing tale of unrequited love between two repressed souls. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 15, 2014
63% Kurt and Courtney (1998) " Simply put, the guerrilla filmmaker gives great dish. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Amélie (2001) " Jeunet hasn't lost his touch with fabulist imagery, but he employs it more selectively and effectively than ever before. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 9, 2014
89% Rushmore (1998) " The droll, anarchic prep school comedy Rushmore finds director Wes Anderson and screenwriter Owen Wilson affectionately chronicling the efforts of a precocious misfit to carve out a niche in a harsh, illogical world. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 17, 2014
94% Dark Days (2000) " Marc Singer's documentary Dark Days absolutely blew me away. It takes the viewer on a thoroughly engrossing journey to the heart of darkness. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 3, 2014
92% Shakespeare in Love (1998) " The film is literate without being pretentious, bawdy without being gross and grounded in historical fact without being constricted by it. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 11, 2014
79% 8 Women (8 Femmes) (2002) " The film weaves visual elegance, lesbian subtext, six hilariously inappropriate song-and-dance numbers and a flair for chiffon into a showcase for leading ladies of French cinema past and present. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 9, 2013

79% Office Space (1999) " Isn't it a shame that people expect certain conventions from their movies -- niggling little things like interesting plots with beginnings, middles and ends, and maybe a little character development thrown in for good measure? " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 4, 2013
87% The Blair Witch Project (1999) " It's a thrill to behold this supernaturally accomplished triumph of guerrilla filmmaking technique. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 5, 2013
97% Chicken Run (2000) " It's nothing less than a stop-motion tour de force, bursting with charm, humor, invention and eye-popping mise en scene. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 4, 2013
93% Saving Private Ryan (1998) " Its dramatic shortcomings may demote Private Ryan from the ranks of battlefield classics, but the film explodes romantic notions of World War II like an artillery shell bursting through the center of your rib cage. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 2, 2013
3/4 36% 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) " Superficial? You betcha. But eye candy, attitude and humor abound in what amounts to a glorified Miami Vice episode complete with an undercover lawman who lives aboard a boat. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Posted May 23, 2003
2.5/4 48% Bruce Almighty (2003) " The tale goes all sentimental and preachy, which might have worked had the director been Frank Capra. But it isn't; it's Tom Shadyac. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 23, 2003

Posted May 16, 2003
2.5/4 73% The Matrix Reloaded (2003) " More special effects. More fight sequences. More chases. More stunts. More neo-philosophical babble. But more, in this case, adds up to less. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 14, 2003

Posted May 9, 2003
1.5/4 28% Daddy Day Care (2003) " For those of us who fondly recall the risk-taker who gave us Raw and 48 HRS. and Trading Places, it's hard to stomach Daddy Day Care's vanilla pudding. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 9, 2003
2/4 87% X2: X-Men United (2003) " Suffers from acute sequelitis. The characters aren't as vibrant, the dialogue isn't as witty and the action isn't as fresh as they were the first time around. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Posted Mar 28, 2003
2/4 30% Dreamcatcher (2003) " Given all those prestigious pedigrees, Dreamcatcher should have been great, or at least bad in new and interesting ways. Instead, it shamelessly recycles plot points and themes from Alien, Independence Day even Outbreak. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 21, 2003
1.5/4 14% View from the Top (2003) " It takes a special 'talent' to make Mike Myers unfunny, and Barreto has it in abundance. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 21, 2003
1/4 29% The Hunted (2003) " No movie in recent memory made me laugh harder or longer than the numbingly incompetent First Blood rip-off The Hunted. Trouble is, I'm pretty sure it wasn't intended as a comedy. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 14, 2003

Posted Feb 22, 2003
1/4 19% The Life of David Gale (2003) " A manipulative melodrama so intent on ramming home its political message that it runs roughshod over logic, telegraphs its plot developments and browbeats its audience. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 21, 2003
3/4 45% Daredevil (2003) " Rather than lay on the expository detail, Daredevil focuses on character development. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 14, 2003

Posted Feb 7, 2003
1/4 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) " Having nearly suffocated amid the swirling mist of estrogen fumes that enveloped a recent screening of the insipid chick flick How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, I need an immediate infusion of guy stuff to detox. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 7, 2003

Posted Jan 31, 2003
2/4 81% The Hours (2002) " The filmmakers juggle and juxtapose three story lines but fail to come up with one cogent point, unless it's that life stinks, especially for sensitive married women who really love other women. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 17, 2003
2/4 11% National Security (2003) " Dugan 'directs' with all the subtlety and nuance he brought to 1999's Big Daddy. Which is to say, none. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 17, 2003

Posted Jan 10, 2003
2.5/4 77% Nicholas Nickleby (2002) " Armed with McGrath's apt Dickens distillation, the illustrious ensemble strain mightily and eventually salvage Nicholas Nickleby from the poor man's Heath Ledger at its center. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
