Duets (2000)

"There are ... a number of loose ends that are not wrapped up, ideas that are started but left unfinished, and far more karaoke singing than you ever need to see in your life, let alone in one movie."

The 6th Day (2000)

Boiler Room (2000)

"A curiously provocative look at the male psyche, ultimately turning inward to examine issues of ethics and morality -- all while still being as crass and vulgar as possible. Just like a guy."

Topsy-Turvy (1999)

Fight Club (1999)

Armageddon (1998)

"It is impossible to take a movie like this seriously. Unfortunately, the movie tries to force us to do just that a few times too many."

The Crew (2000)

The Cider House Rules (1999)

"The film resonates well, with some truly touching moments -- scenes that earn tears without jerking them. The end is perfectly satisfying, and the movie as a whole is a sweet, light-hearted, gently odd piece of fiction."

Bedazzled (2000)

"Even if you accept its age-old premise ... there's still too much other stupid stuff to get in the way of ever really enjoying the thing."
