2.5/4 30% Hollywood Homicide (2003) " Shelton's attempts to tweak the buddy-cop formula are admirable -- an anti-chase chase scene involving a duck pond is hilarious -- but all too often he ends up embracing the very tropes he should be mocking." — Reel.com
Posted Jun 13, 2003
2.5/4 41% Rugrats Go Wild (2003) " What Rugrats Go Wild! lacks in visual splendor it makes up for in comedic spunk." — Reel.com
Posted Jun 12, 2003
2.5/4 36% 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) " For PG-13 popcorn-munching, it ain't half-bad." — Reel.com
Posted Jun 5, 2003
2/4 73% The Italian Job (2003) " The new Italian Job takes a rollicking caper comedy and turns it into another dull thriller." — Reel.com
Posted May 29, 2003
3.5/4 99% Finding Nemo (2003) " There may be plenty of fish in the sea (for now, anyway), but few films can manipulate you like Finding Nemo and have you not mind." — Reel.com
Posted May 29, 2003
2.5/4 48% Bruce Almighty (2003) " A mixed bag." — Reel.com
Posted May 22, 2003
2.5/4 34% The In-Laws (2003) " While many of these gags are spoiled by the trailer, what isn't on display is Brooks' ability to bust viewers' guts." — Reel.com
Posted May 22, 2003
3/4 73% The Matrix Reloaded (2003) " By itself, The Matrix Reloaded is deeply flawed, but ultimately entertaining." — Reel.com
Posted May 14, 2003
3/4 47% City of Ghosts (2003) " For the most part, Dillon has skillfully captured the sojourn of a stranger in a strange land." — Reel.com
Posted May 9, 2003
2/4 28% Daddy Day Care (2003) " Though not nearly as noxious as the trailers would have you believe, Daddy still uses the same tired formula employed by The Kid and Kindergarten Cop." — Reel.com
Posted May 8, 2003
3/4 87% X2: X-Men United (2003) " For most of its runtime, X2 has the indescribable x-factor of rollicking entertainment." — Reel.com
Posted May 1, 2003
2.5/4 70% Confidence (2003) " Confidence may be a rerun, but it's a rerun worth watching." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 24, 2003
2.5/4 62% Identity (2003) " For the first two thirds, Identity is effective, with director James Mangold delivering the appropriate jolts at the right times." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 24, 2003
2.5/4 31% Malibu's Most Wanted (2003) " Little more than an extended sitcom. But it's a mostly funny sitcom that delivers a few sharp jabs at stereotypes in between laughs." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 17, 2003
1.5/4 23% Bulletproof Monk (2003) " Monk's hero may be bulletproof, but all the magic in Tibet couldn't make this fiasco idiotproof." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 15, 2003
2/4 43% Anger Management (2003) " While a welcome respite from the obnoxiousness of The Waterboy and Big Daddy, this sedate, reasonable Sandler is likely to frustrate his fans as much as did his dramatic turn in Punch-Drunk Love." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 10, 2003
3/4 64% KaubĂ´i Bibappu: Tengoku no Tobira (Cowboy Bebop the Movie: Knockin' on Heaven's Door) (2003) " Japanimation lovers should definitely catch this jam." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 4, 2003
2/4 43% DysFunKtional Family (2003) " I didn't know Richard Pryor. Richard Pryor wasn't a friend of mine. But it's safe to say Eddie Griffin is no Richard Pryor." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 4, 2003
1.5/4 11% A Man Apart (2003) " There's a rumor going around Hollywood that Diesel is only starring in blockbusters to collect enough cash to self-finance respectable independent projects. He better hurry up -- a few more Man Aparts, and nobody will be able to take him seriously." — Reel.com
Posted Apr 4, 2003
2/4 31% Head of State (2003) " It's Rock's defanged political commentary that sinks it." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 27, 2003
2.5/4 41% The Core (2003) " In the realm of guilty pleasures, few are guiltier than The Core." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 27, 2003
1.5/4 71% Piglet's Big Movie (2003) " A far cry from the grand Pooh-bahs of Milne's day." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 21, 2003
2.5/4 30% Dreamcatcher (2003) " Playing like a Roger Corman movie with a $100 million budget, the film relies on abundant gore and BOO!-style scares." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 20, 2003
2/4 64% Willard (2003) " The plot might've made a decent Tales from the Crypt episode, but it's too obvious for a feature, causing the story to drag." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 13, 2003
2/4 29% The Hunted (2003) " The script feels like it was penned by committee." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 13, 2003
2.5/4 33% Tears of the Sun (2003) " Tears of the Sun should be condemned for cheapening the tragedy of West Africa's civil wars with a cheesy plot." — Reel.com
Posted Mar 6, 2003
2.5/4 26% Cradle 2 the Grave (2003) " If you think that Cradle's plot sounds stupid, that's because it is." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 28, 2003
2/4 19% The Life of David Gale (2003) " Teeters between compelling political commentary and sanctimonious claptrap like a drunk humanities professor chatting up a student at a faculty party." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 20, 2003
2/4 8% Gods and Generals (2003) " Slowly drags viewers through a morass of cardboard caricatures, tedious dialogue, and stultifying skirmishes for over four hours, if you count the previews and intermission." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 20, 2003
2/4 45% Daredevil (2003) " Cut so frantically you'd think the studio chiefs were holding a pistol to the editor's head, Daredevil's 96 minutes feel compressed, rushed, and jumbled." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 13, 2003
2/4 44% Deliver Us from Eva (2003) " Hardwick seems to lose focus once Ray and Eva start falling in love, rampantly pilfering from other films." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 7, 2003
1.5/4 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) " How to lose a Guy in 10 Days More like How to Lose an Audience in 10 Minutes." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 6, 2003
3/4 66% Shanghai Knights (2003) " Every bit as entertaining as the original." — Reel.com
Posted Feb 6, 2003
2/4 23% Biker Boyz (2003) " A turgid actioner which sticks a fine cast atop a series of tricked-out motorcycles and sends them speeding down the expressway to mediocrity." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 30, 2003
2.5/4 57% The Guru (2002) " It may not be orthodox Bollywood, but The Guru offers enough entertainment to earn the genre new fans, much like the hybrid Rush Hour turned the mainstream onto Hong Kong action." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 30, 2003
2.5/4 24% A Guy Thing (2003) " The collective charms of both Lee and his love interest, Julia Stiles, make the film an often-pleasant distraction." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 17, 2003
2/4 19% Just Married (2003) " Every time Murphy and Kutcher lift Married above the youth-comedy cesspit, Sam Harper's script inserts a gratuitous pratfall or gaseous gag, sending the whole thing spiralling downwards." — Reel.com
Posted Jan 10, 2003
0/4 0% Pinocchio (2002) " The only way this Pinocchio can have a fairy-tale ending is if you leave in time to get your money back; then you might live happily ever after." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 27, 2002

Posted Dec 25, 2002
3.5/4 75% Gangs of New York (2002) " It's a gruesome masterpiece, savage and majestic, unbearable and irresistible all at once." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 20, 2002
3.5/4 83% Narc (2002) " A riveting profile of law enforcement, and a visceral, nasty journey into an urban Hades." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 19, 2002
3/4 78% 25th Hour (2003) " A mature, thoughtful character study." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 19, 2002
4/4 96% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) " Visually breathtaking, viscerally exciting, and dramatically moving, it's the very definition of epic adventure." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 17, 2002
2/4 21% The Hot Chick (2002) " Despite this inconsistency and Schneider's one-note turn, the film does offer a few amusing moments. All too often, however, The Hot Chick feels like a cold fish." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 13, 2002
2.5/4 82% Drumline (2002) " Although it bangs a very cliched drum at times, this crowd-pleaser's fresh dialogue, energetic music, and good-natured spunk are often infectious." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 13, 2002
3/4 80% War Photographer (2001) " Both the film and Nachtwey's photos hammer home the grim reality of the world's gutters and battlefields, and will make you question what 'news' really is." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 5, 2002
2.5/4 21% Empire (2002) " While not a classic by any standard, writer/director Franc Reyes' debut does paint an engaging portrait of the rise and fall of Vic Rosa." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 5, 2002
1.5/4 37% Equilibrium (2002) " Wimmer's narrative sloppiness makes one think he's popped a few too many pills, since Equilibrium often feels like a sense offense itself." — Reel.com
Posted Dec 5, 2002
1/4 8% Extreme Ops (2002) " The only thing extreme about this operation is its abilty to irritate." — Reel.com
Posted Nov 27, 2002
0/4 12% Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002) " An unholy union between saccharine holiday sentiment, gross-out comedy, and fourth-rate animation." — Reel.com
