1.5/5 16% Godzilla (1998) I'm not sure if the screenplay was actually written, or they simply ran a program which patched, Frankenstein's monster-like, a hodge-podge of moments from recent blockbusters together along with typical lines like "...I've got a bad feeling about this."‐ Film Threat

1.5/5 53% Josie and the Pussycats (2001) In the end, the plot is revealed and everything is wrapped up just like an episode of Scooby Doo. But not after the bumbling Tara Reid tortures us with her ditziness.‐ Film Threat

2.5/5 42% Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001) The script is lackluster and unambitious. Well, lame really. Eddie Murphy is truly the only reason to see DR2.‐ Film Threat

3/5 62% The Tigger Movie (2000) Perfect for the single-digit aged set, who will love it, and not terrible for adults since the film moves fast at a quick 75 minutes.‐ Film Threat

4/5 79% Fight Club (1999) Fight Club is not just a movie, but a wake up call to a disenfranchised generation sick of being told by advertising what to drive, wear, buy, smoke, drink and eat in order to be cool.‐ Film Threat
