Johnny English (2003)
Madame Satã (2002)
Swimming Pool (2003)
"A biopic that's as lively and vivid as its subject."
Used People (1992)
"Mastroianni and MacLaine are both fine, but the film is a little too cutesy for its own good."
Salaam Bombay! (1988)
"Mira Nair's feature debut is a moving and powerful look at people for whom survival itself is a major achievement."
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
"Imaginitive set pieces and a quick pace make this a wonderful debut for the series."
Breaking In (1989)
"A low-key and intriguing teaming of John Sayles and Billy Forsyth that features a terrific performance by Reynolds."
The Blues Brothers (1980)
"The story is thin, but there's a consistently wonderful over-the-top mentality."
From Justin To Kelly (2003)
Le Cercle Rouge (1970)
Gin gwai (The Eye) (2002)
Der Unhold (The Ogre) (1999)

The Hard Word (2003)
The Good Old Naughty Days (2003)
28 Days Later (2003)
Alex & Emma (2003)
Mona Lisa (1986)
"Hoskin's is engrossing in one of Neil Jordan's best movies."
"It's easy to view Dietrich Bonhoeffer as both a hero and a martyr, and Martin Doblmeier's new documentary does nothing to dispel that image. Thankfully, the director examines his subject in a thorough and clear-headed manner that's worthy of the subject. "
The Heart of Me (2003)
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
Whale Rider (2003)
Wrong Turn (2003)
Chariots of Fire (1981)
"A bit stiff, but a genuinely engaging look at athletes with more than medals on their minds."
The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
"A solid and moving adaptation of the Steinbeck novel."
The Prince of Tides (1991)
"Nolte's terrific performance isn't enough to save this sappy, painfully phony piece of psychobabble."
Hollywood Homicide (2003)
The Princess Blade (2002)
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
"An imaginitive and haunting post-Orwellian reimagining of 1984."
L'Auberge Espagnole (2003)
"French writer-director Cédric Klapisch's movies are fun to watch because he's got a gift for achieving a seemingly impossible balance. He can vividly capture the uniqueness of his locales (like Paris or Barcelona) but make his stories appealingly universa "
"Douglas struggles honorably with his stoke-impaired speech and a shoddy story."
"A highly disturbing but mesmerising look at the joys and dangers of life in the mob. One of Scorsese's best."
"Lavish and disturbing, if somewhat cold. Adjani is typically solid."
"This look at the making of "The Last Picture Show" and "Texasville" has some eye popping revalations. It's too bad the clips from the first film are reproduced in such a blurry manner."
Star Trek Generations (1994)
"So so attempt to combine two generations of Star Trek crews."
Force of Evil (1948)
"A gripping thriller with a terrific performance by Garfield. It seems only the good peformers and directors got blacklisted (in this case Garfield and Polonsky)."
