The Badger Herald
"Despite being nearly three hours long, the movie is among the finest to grace the silver screen in some time and should be able to work over any intelligent audience not bothered by a level of blood, gore and even nudity traditionally reserved for either "
Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
"...the sort of vitriolic exercise in paranoia that would ordinarily land its creator in therapy."
The Passion of the Christ (2004)
"Unrelentingly anti-Semitic, excessively grotesque and overly narrow in its scope"
"...a stellar work of poignant cinema."
Runaway Jury (2003)
"...Far-fetched, poorly crafted, but very entertaining."
Intolerable Cruelty (2003)
"...an uproariously quirky story about romance in the very unromantic field of matrimonial law."
School of Rock (2003)
"Jack Black... deftly guides the family film away from the genre's usual mawkishness and into a sort of Bad-Company-meets-Peter-Pan Rock 'n' Roll Never Never Land."
"...other than a few shining moments, 'Duplex' relies entirely upon juvenile sight gags to generate jokes that really aren't all that amusing."
Anything Else (2003)
"Allen creates one of his finer films, with a delicately intricate plot, phenomenal acting and delightfully cynical humor."
Matchstick Men (2003)
"...has so much sheer style and class that it more closely resembles an old Rat Pack project than a modern-day popcorn dud."
"...the sort of B-actor-driven comedic train wreck that David Spade used to dryly mock while doing his 'Hollywood Minute' on Saturday Night Live"
American Wedding (2003)
"...hopefully there will be more to come; it would be a shame if this really is 'Bye bye, Miss American Pie.'"
The Real Cancun (2003)
"More closely resembling a "Girls Gone Wild" video than a work of traditional cinema, "The Real Cancun" delivers a unique brand of glossy sex appeal, thanks to a fairly developed array of variously sordid characters."
Bulletproof Monk (2003)
"Bulletproof Monk has a snide confidence that its petty jokes of culture shock will actually elicit laughs while altogether failing to realize that the punch lines weren't that funny the first time, let alone this time."
Anger Management (2003)
"[Nicholson and Sandler] put forth fine efforts in this entirely performance-driven film, but save for a few memorable scenes, the oil and vinegar simply don't mix."
Phone Booth (2003)
"A riveting tale of morality in a city noted for its sinful characters, "Phone Booth" is that rare edge-of-your-seat movie that is as cerebral as it is thrilling."
Head of State (2003)
"Delightfully hilarious yet awkwardly toothless"
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
"It is exceedingly difficult to classify How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days as a romantic comedy given that the film is about as romantic as a punch to the face -- literally."
Gods and Generals (2003)
"A repulsive combination of dry textbook history and pandering melodrama."
