Finding Nemo (2003)

"Is this kid's stuff? That's a complicated question but the answer is a thing of beauty that will have children enchanted hook, line and sinker."

Darkness Falls (2003)

"You will find more frights in Finding Nemo. And you might just have more fun playing with your lollie wrappers, performing shadow puppets on the screen - or even picking your nose - than enduring this dimly lit horror movie."

A Guy Thing (2003)

"Julia Stiles provides the one shining light in an otherwise dull, unfunny, cringe-inducing comedy caper."

The In-Laws (2003)

"It's good to see Douglas, who's so good at those nasty Gordon Gekko types, take on a comic role but he has little chemistry with Brooks"

American Wedding (2003)

"It's not often sequels are better than the original but after a disappointing second instalment, writer Adam Herz has saved the best until last."

Down with Love (2003)

"Beneath the wingtips, pointy shoes and '50s sexual politics...Down with Love is light, airy and fun - almost to the level of cheap laughs. It's all surface spit and polish."

Cypher (2002)

"Natali has crafted a clever, futuristic mind-bender that's both beautiful to look at...and cerebrally challenging with its questions about reality and identity. Not bad for a film made for the cost of The Matrix's opening credits."

Tears of the Sun (2003)

"The issues it raises are both noble, topical and worth exploring, which makes this an interesting, if flawed, military exercise."

Wrong Turn (2003)

"Was Wrong Turn directed by the kind of in-bred mountain men depicted in the film? The opening credits is the only device that drive the plot -- the rest is simply a squeal-inducing hunt movie."

View from the Top (2003)

"It's a pity...that such a first-class cast is forced to fly economy in this aimless exercise that never knows its destination."

Identity (2003)

"Here is a movie that's so good - so juicy in the dark secrets it keeps - that all I really want to say is to see it right now knowing as little about it as possible."

Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003)

"It's a slick, smooth and indeed explosive instalment, but it has neither the spit and polish of T2 nor the grittiness of the cult hit T1."

Auto Focus (2002)

"..interesting for the way it reveals what the advent of the videotape in the '70s has done to all of us. Like the Internet in the '90s, it has helped make what's private public - for better or worse."

The Real Cancun (2003)

"Never has the word "real" been used in a more liberal way, because this reality movie seems to have a tighter script than American Pie - or at least one cloned from it."

I Capture the Castle (2003)
