Minority Report (2002)

Irreversible (2002)

"Noé's initially disconcerting stylistic choices and the extreme violence are justified when you look at the bigger picture."

Undercover Brother (2002)

"As hard as "Undercover Brother" tries to be a black "Austin Powers", it lacks the demented brilliance of a guy like Mike Myers."

The Salton Sea (2002)

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D (2002)

Unfaithful (2002)

Spider-Man (2002)

"Raimi's film is actually closer in spirit to a coming-of-age story like "Almost Famous" than to a flashy noisy mess like "Batman and Robin"."

The Scorpion King (2002)

"As hopelessly derivative as it is, this "Conan" knock-off should please not-too-demanding adventure fans."

Monster's Ball (2001)

"While I feel it falls short from brilliance in its underwhelming last act, it remains a film which is sure to get to you."
