"Probably the ultimate piece of eye-candy Hollywood has yet to offer. An exceptionally creative effort in homage to the genre, and nothing more."

"As prequels derived from vbideo games go, this one is not bad, well produced and answers many questions left by the original 'Alien'."

Vanity Fair (2004)

"Thackeray's classic tale for the ninth (?) time and with great production values although Reese Witherspoon is much too sweet in her interpretation of the calculating heroine."

Wicker Park (2004)

"Although the convoluted stracture of the film with endless flashbacks and a 'Rashomon'-like construction will exhaust you, this is a neat little thriller."

""A cinema rendering for the young..the franchise continues in a frenetic series of action/chase sequences cut like rock videos. A script..maybe? A 3rd sequel..definitely""

The Village (2004)

""Suffers from it's own hype as a horror flick,which it isn't. This psychological thriller is too slick and full of elements we've seen before to be anything but a B film.""

Man on Fire (2004)

"An overproduced remake. It's too artsy, but delivers jolts of raw Dirty Harry/Punisher type violence that seems to sell tickets nowadays. Kudos for Washington's performance."

"ELLA can't decide if it's 'Princess Bride' or 'Shrek' while it deviates considerably from novel. Yet, it is clean fare for the young in a market starving for family films."

"Tries really, really, really, really hard to be a Looney Tune and sometimes briefly hits the mark. Still, it's harmless family/kiddie fare in a market that needs such things."

Taking Lives (2004)

"Another thriller that needs a seasoned director and a rewrite. It stars off good and rolls downhill fast. Even Angelina's sex scene can't save it. Skip the theater - rent it!"

Secret Window (2004)

"Johnny Depp's talent is submerged in a "seen that done that" script that needs a Hitchcock rewrite to be viable. My wife guessed the whole thing in the first five minutes."

"Gibson's PASSION OF THE CHRISTdelivers as much religious inspiration as watching Klansmen beat the crap out of a 13 year old black kid for two hours. Rent THE ROBE on DVD!!"
