3/4 38% Brother Bear (2003) "The good news is that this is mostly good old-fashioned hand-drawn Disney animation. The bad news is that it relies too much on old-fashioned formula, hackneyed plot and cookie-cutter characters. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 31, 2003
1/4 14% Beyond Borders (2003) "Beyond Borders is a film with its heart in the right place. Unfortunately, its head is stuck so far in the clouds that it dissolves into preachy do-gooder mush. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted May 30, 2003

Posted May 9, 2003
1/4 50% Onmyoji (2001) "Certainly there are dueling wizards, torchlight swordfights and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon effects. But the moments of action are interspersed with lengthy plot developments that are hard to follow. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
