8/10 77% Cold Weather (2011) Well worth the trip. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 4, 2011
B- 32% Seed of Chucky (2004) No one rents or buys a movie like this for its Oscar moments. This is a fun romp of a flick that's going to be fun with a group of friends and a keg. ‐ Trades
Posted Jul 29, 2005
88% Shrek (2001) A solid second outing by DreamWorks/PDI, with truly biting entertaining moments scattered throughout the film. ‐ Trades
Posted Jun 12, 2004
C+ 14% Gothika (2003) Quote not available. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 23, 2003
C+ 92% School of Rock (2003) Instead of the freshness of About a Boy, it presents the tried-and-true of a watered down The Goonies. ‐ Trades
Posted Sep 28, 2003
A 83% Narc (2002) The opening tests the limits of an R-rating, as a drug fueled cop chases down a criminal that has no regard for civilians or human life... ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 7, 2002
C- 85% About Schmidt (2002) Alexander Payne's follow-up to his critically praised debut, Election, struggles throughout to convey a purpose and vision. While the humor is evident in the premise, it fails consistently to execute successfully. ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 7, 2002
A 79% Antwone Fisher (2002) This film is easily one of the year's best because it never hides its intentions, but still carries a heavy impact. Antwone Fisher's strength relies on simplicity, charm, and craftsmanship ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 7, 2002
A- 96% Bowling for Columbine (2002) Here lies the charm of Michael Moore's style, he uses guerilla style journalism to ask the questions no one seems to be asking, of the people no one seems to have the balls to ask. ‐ Trades
Posted Oct 1, 2002
B 87% Far From Heaven (2003) Haysbert's performance here shines as a perfect example of an African-American actor that is left behind in Hollywood, not because he can't act, but because there are too few roles written for him. ‐ Trades
Posted Sep 27, 2002
C 60% K-19: The Widowmaker (2002) It fails to create an emotional link to the true story it is based on because it allows empty dialogue and over-indulgent action to overwhelm the horror of the true sailor's reality. ‐ Trades
Posted Jun 28, 2002
A+ 81% Road to Perdition (2002) Mendes takes an extensive look at a cold-blooded man whose love for his family challenges his livelihood and his past, and delivers a film that seems unmired by the studio corruption that many young director's despise. ‐ Trades
Posted Jun 28, 2002
B- 22% Mr. Deeds (2002) Overall, 'Deeds' proves that Sandler's comedy is showing it's age. While not as horrid as 'Little Nicky,' 'Deeds' remains outside of Sandler's circle of great comedies. ‐ Trades
Posted Jun 14, 2002
B+ 65% Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) While the film is clearly a step up from Menace, it still has its weak points. ‐ Trades
Posted May 7, 2002
A 92% Insomnia (2002) An engrossing and inventive thriller. ‐ Trades
Posted May 2, 2002
A- 94% About a Boy (2002) To be completely honest, Grant may have the best performance of his career in Boy. ‐ Trades
Posted Apr 9, 2002
19% National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002) Spends too much time and effort on weak gross-out gags, and sprints past romantic moments between Van and Gwen. ‐ Trades
Posted Feb 4, 2002
32% Charlotte Gray (2002) A weak film that will disappear from the cinema radar in near record time. ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 18, 2001
75% A Beautiful Mind (2001) Crowe reaches within and recreates himself once again, as he did in The Insider. ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 11, 2001
80% The Business of Strangers (2001) Settles for a mockery of a discussion on rape. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 20, 2001
7/10 61% The Patriot (2000) honest depiction of warfare that focuses on characters and symbols. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
9/10 97% Chicken Run (2000) Chicken Run Movie Review ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
7/10 73% A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) A.I. Artificial Intelligence Movie Review ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
6/10 56% Hamlet (2000) A disappointment because it failed to peak my interest like Baz Luhrman's Romeo & Juliet did. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
5/10 11% Boys and Girls (2000) Sleepless in Seattle this ain't. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
9/10 81% X-Men (2000) Overall I was impressed by Singer's attention to detail. ‐ Trades
Posted Nov 3, 2001
51% Shallow Hal (2001) As long as the concept does not offend you, Shallow Hal should successfully entertain and charm you. ‐ Trades
Posted Oct 31, 2001
78% Tape (2001) Has Grade A moments stuck within a B- movie. ‐ Trades
Posted Oct 29, 2001
96% Monsters, Inc. (2001) Assuredly the funniest and most creative animated film this year. ‐ Trades
Posted Oct 17, 2001
80% Waking Life (2001) A tripped-out look at the life or dreams of a dreamer. ‐ Trades
Posted Oct 15, 2001
81% The Man Who Wasn't There (2001) The characters lack the spark that is required in a Noir. ‐ Trades
Posted Sep 24, 2001
72% Training Day (2001) With a cast of Washington and Hawke in such an interesting premise, this film had great potential. Too bad something went wrong. ‐ Trades
Posted Sep 7, 2001
44% Rat Race (2001) Fragmented and varying in quality. ‐ Trades
Posted Aug 15, 2001
64% O (2001) It took the mature teenagers of Dawson's Creek and added the intense tragedy and drama of Shakespeare -- and makes it an Oscar Worthy film. ‐ Trades
Posted Aug 15, 2001
71% Made (2001) It was an enjoyable experience, but one that will not reap instant rewards. ‐ Trades
Posted Jul 31, 2001
51% Lost and Delirious (2001) While I applaud the effort to get such an interesting story to the screen, it failed to convince me that this story was entertaining. ‐ Trades
Posted Jul 31, 2001
92% Ghost World (2001) It was just not as funny or as cynical as it could have been. ‐ Trades
Posted Jul 31, 2001
63% Session 9 (2001) This is the kind of film responsible for making adults cry. ‐ Trades
Posted Jul 31, 2001
55% Blow (2001) Depp does an amazing job of portraying such a complex man. ‐ Trades
Posted Apr 2, 2001
43% Someone Like You (2001) Succeeds because the chemistry is genuine. ‐ Trades
Posted Mar 21, 2001
74% Finding Forrester (2000) It takes the standard cliché of a mentor relationship, and makes it real. ‐ Trades
Posted Dec 19, 2000
43% The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000) All involved bring such potential and talent, that only a poorly chosen script can be blamed for this pathetic little film. ‐ Trades
