Rain (2001)

"Moody, heartbreaking, and filmed in a natural, unforced style that makes its characters seem entirely convincing even when its script is not."

Jason X (2002)

"Calling this movie brainless would be paying it a compliment: it's more like entertainment for trolls."

Deuces Wild (2002)

"Deuces Wild treads heavily into Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story territory, where it plainly has no business going."

The Cat's Meow (2001)

Lucky Break (2002)

Frailty (2002)

"After a rather unsavory start, Frailty develops into anything but that which its title suggests, opting instead to become a strong, good old-fashioned suspense/horror story with lots of creepiness along the way."

The Other Side Of Heaven (2001)

"Although based on a real-life person, John, in the movie, is a rather dull person to be stuck with for two hours."

Big Trouble (2002)

"...there's a lot of fun, idiotic stuff, plenty of action, one-liners, and bloated buffoonery. And some great goat stunt work."

Changing Lanes (2002)

"...passable enough for a shoot-out in the o.k. court house of life type of flick. Strictly middle of the road."

Y Tu Mamá También (2001)

"Its interest in the vagaries and shifting colors of truth make Y Tu Mama Tambien an unusual film."

Panic Room (2002)

"As beautiful and well used as all this space is, midway through the film, it starts to feel less foreboding than vacant, an occasion for Great Visuals, rather than a location where characters live and where anything might happen."

Rollerball (2002)

"I was wondering if there was any good reason or need to do a remake of the 1975 film, and, after having seen the remake, I'm still wondering."

Dragonfly (2002)

"The more Kevin Costner rests on his pretty-boy laurels, the public is, regrettably, going to have tepid films like Dragonfly tossed at them."
