Deadline (2004)

"Not as dynamic as it should be, given the punch of the story it tells, but it makes its points." ‐New York Times

September Tapes (2004)

"Maybe Mr. Johnston ... intended this to be a guessing game. But the method robs the real encounters of their power and, even more important, trivializes the subject." ‐New York Times

Mind the Gap (2005)

"Eric Schaeffer takes a stab at the intertwined-lives ensemble-cast film." ‐New York Times

Cowboys & Angels (2003)

"The coming-of-age story about the corruptions of the big city has been done a few thousand times, but at least this one offers a fresh mix of open-minded intelligence and a heartfelt point of view." ‐New York Times
Posted Sep 20, 2004
3.5/5 54%

Mr. 3000 (2004)

"In creating the breathtakingly arrogant baseball player Stan Ross, Bernie Mac gives moviegoers a character they love to hate, then a newly humbled character they can root for." ‐New York Times

The Private Archives of Pablo Escobar (2004)

"This 2002 documentary about Pablo Escobar Gaviria has a pronounced point of view. At least it will probably seem that way to American audiences, who know Escobar as a ruthless drug lord." ‐New York Times

Hijacking Catastrophe (2004)

"This sobering documentary proposes that the real reason for the war with Iraq is a two-decade, three-administration, neo-conservative master plan to take over the world." ‐New York Times

Rockets Redglare! (2004)

"Maybe the world has just seen too many outrageous East Village characters at this point, but Morra comes off as nothing special." ‐New York Times
Posted Sep 2, 2004
1.5/5 47%

Everybody Says I'm Fine! (2001)

"Very little of consequence can be said of the film ... other than that it is quieter and more realistic than the Bollywood spectacles that are India's best-known movies." ‐New York Times

Chooch (2004)

"Chooch is really just an outline for a movie." ‐New York Times

Girls Will Be Girls (2003)

"The film is appropriately cynical, pleasantly camp and just fresh enough to be funny more often than not." ‐New York Times

Good Boy! (2003)

"As children's film premises go, this is a cute one, but the execution is a failure." ‐New York Times

Underworld (2003)

"Achieves only loudness, aggressive confusion and one of the silliest head-splittings in film history." ‐New York Times

Green Card Fever (2003)

"An amiable but highly didactic romantic drama." ‐New York Times

Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters (The Era of Vampires) (2002)

Bhoot (Ghost House) (2003)

Wrong Turn (2003)

"Lazy would-be horror film." ‐New York Times
Posted Jun 2, 2003

Decasia (2002)

"Decasia is what has happened already to so many silent movies, newsreels and the like. The unexpected thing is that its dying, in this shower of black-and-white psychedelia, is quite beautiful." ‐New York Times

Code Unknown (Code inconnu: Récit incomplet de divers voyages) (2000)

"Unfortunately, [Haneke's] often too cryptic, which leaves viewers still trying to make connections when they should already be reacting to the moral lessons implied by them." ‐New York Times

I Woke Up Early the Day I Died (1998)

"It's sad and misguided and boring. Pretending to make a pathetically amateurish movie isn't nearly as effective as accidentally making one because you don't know any better." ‐New York Times

Sound and Fury (2000)

Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (1999)

"A lot has been written about the admirable lessons that Pokemon teaches children about responsibility, teamwork and obedience. But some unfortunate messages are being sent as well." ‐New York Times

Foolish (1999)

"The film loses complete credibility when the audiences at the comedy clubs where Foolish works go wild with delight, way out of proportion to the hilarity of the material. And Foolish is just a little too smug about his artistic integrity." ‐New York Times

Dead Man on Campus (1998)

"All three would-be suicides are over the top and fun to watch. Too bad the film they're in seems to have been at least partly written and directed by Beavis and Butt-head." ‐New York Times

A Night at the Roxbury (1998)

"The director, John Fortenberry, whose background is in television, has probably done the best that can be done with characters who were never meant to speak." ‐New York Times

Almost Heroes (1998)

"The screenwriters just seem to be asking for it when they have Edwards demand of his scruffy team, ''Must you and the others reduce everything to its crudest terms?'' The answer is sadly obvious." ‐New York Times

Wing Commander (1999)

"Wing Commander is based on a video game and has roughly the same degree of character development. That is all most moviegoers will need to know." ‐New York Times

Gadjo Dilo (1998)

Operation Condor (Fei ying gai wak) (Armour of God II) (1991)

"The point of the movie is the fight scenes, and they're impressive, as is the car chase, one of the funniest, most inventive in recent memory." ‐New York Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/5 84%

Hands on a Hard Body (1998)

"These may not be people whom moviegoers think they want to spend time with, but this is accomplished documentary making, finding universal lessons in determination, struggle, planning, persistence and the relationship of mind and body." ‐New York Times
