43% Anger Management (2003) The film's not funny, but it is interesting. That's because this Sandler comedy is more like a Neil LaBute film than a frat boy dorm time waster.‐ DVDTalk.com

82% Stone Reader (2003) The mainstream nature of Moskowitz's taste in books undermines his proselytizing for Mossman, whose prose we barely meet in the movie. "I like subplots and twists in stories," he counsels us at one point.‐ DVDTalk.com

71% Phone Booth (2003) The film is also an unusual marriage of two utterly different cinematic sensibilities, that of Schumacher the director, and Larry Cohen, the writer.‐ DVDTalk.com

91% Adaptation (2002) There are many writers in this film and it is a movie about writing, about authenticity, about inspiration, about the fear of soul-lessness.‐ DVDTalk.com

3/5 43% The Recruit (2003) The inherent talkiness of this kind of story is mitigated in The Recruit by various exercises in which things get blown up and mock houses are invaded entertainingly.‐ DVDTalk.com

44% Daredevil (2003) it captures the milieu of the early Bill Everett-Joe Orlando comics, of smoky bars and rubbish-filled alleys where the dejecteds and degenerates of Hell's Kitchen ply their trades‐ DVDTalk.com

79% Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2003) Clooney impresses with his sure directorial hand.‐ DVDTalk.com

83% Narc (2002) Heavy, sweating, ill-shaved, and wearing cheap suits, Ray Liotta's Oak is in that middle range of movie characters whom we both dislike yet are fascinated by.‐ DVDTalk.com

9% Darkness Falls (2003) Two good elements of the film are the music score by Brian Tyler and the top notch sound design by John Schiefelbein‐ DVDTalk.com

88% Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002) It's really a Disney film, like The Incredible Journey, only with people instead of pets.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2003
4/5 96% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers may well be that true rarity, an almost perfect film.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2002
42% Two Weeks Notice (2002) The script seemed clever, or maybe it was just the way that Hugh Grant delivered his lines.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2002
75% Gangs of New York (2002) If Scorsese has been brooding on the subject this long, The Gangs of New York should be a transcendent work.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2002
3/5 37% Star Trek - Nemesis (2002) Not only is it talky, but the talk is repetitious, incoherent, and spoken in a soft whisper, as if the actors feared disturbing the audience in its restful slumbers.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2002
40% Maid in Manhattan (2002) Maid in Manhattan handles well one of the most difficult components of the romantic comedy, the contrived Trial Separation.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2002
66% Solaris (2002) Solaris is a technically accomplished film but with a focus so narrow and a story so seemingly slight that it will probably bore most audiences.‐ DVDTalk.com

21% Empire (2002) Unfortunately, we have been down these mean streets before, with better narrative twists and turns and greater empathy with characters who in earlier decades would be the villains.‐ DVDTalk.com

87% Far From Heaven (2003) With the location of a gay bar, Haynes has put together one of the great "going into a gay bar" scenes in all filmdom,‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2002
58% Die Another Day (2002) An often derivative, often clever, and all too often agonizingly boring spy story.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2002
48% Femme Fatale (2002) Vertigo at the heart of Femme Fatale. Only in this case the woman is remaking herself.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2002
76% Frida (2002) You can admire the energy and dedication that went into making Frida without really liking it. It's really just a TV movie level biopic that makes a mad dash through painter Frida Kahlo's life.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2002
1/5 15% I Spy (2002) I Spy's empty jokes fail to stick to you. It's the olestra of major motion pictures.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2002
79% Punch-Drunk Love (2002) Punch-Drunk Love comprises a fairly slight story. The force of the film derives from its interesting, unusual characters.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2002
14% Ghost Ship (2002) Ghost Ship is produced with a certain level of restraint by Joel Silver and Robert Zemeckis, with a script credited to Mark Hanlon and John Pogue that draws upon many familiar sources and suffers only mildly from Narrative Deficit Disorder.‐ DVDTalk.com

3/5 71% The Ring (2002) The Ring requires Naomi Watts to come up with about 45 different facial expressions and just as many moods, and she is up to the task.‐ DVDTalk.com

3/5 69% Red Dragon (2002) Red Dragon is top-notch American movie entertainment.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2002
97% Spirited Away (2002) At the almost-two-hour mark, the film, which seems poised to keep going with yet another bravura sequence of magic, suddenly wraps everything up really fast.‐ DVDTalk.com

22% Mr. Deeds (2002) Capra's Deeds wasn't all that good to begin with, and modernized casting here doesn't improve on it.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2002
90% Minority Report (2002) Cruise and Spielberg did the right thing—not just the commercial thing —in merging their talents. Minority Report is extraordinary.‐ DVDTalk.com

39% Men in Black II (2002) I can't say it was the worst 88 minutes I ever spent in a movie theater, but I could just as easily have slept.‐ DVDTalk.com

30% Scooby-Doo (2002) Scooby-Doo the movie completely undermines the rationalist, anti-ghost premise of Scooby-Doo the original TV series.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2002
32% Windtalkers (2002) It's vintage American Woo—hothouse theatrics with overdone violence that beats you over the head with its excess and implausibility‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2002
88% I Am Trying to Break Your Heart (2002) It's a very tasteful rock and roll movie. You could put it on a coffee table anywhere.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2002
41% The Four Feathers (2002) Like actors doing southern accents in a dinner theater version of Tennessee Williams, the cast here relies on the vague "British" accent of that region called Other Movies.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2002
47% The Banger Sisters (2002) This movie is almost as sex and drugs free as its progenitor, Almost Famous.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2002
48% City by the Sea (2002) Caton-Jones is one of those directors who seems to lose more personality with each new film he makes.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2002
81% Biggie and Tupac (2002) Broomfield has a rather unique approach to documentary. He thinks the film is just as much a document about him as it is about the subject.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2002
81% One Hour Photo (2002) It's a tightly organized film, and you can see why it was a hit at Sundance. In fact, it may be the ultimate "Sundance" movie.‐ DVDTalk.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2002
65% Possession (2002) This is a Neil LaBute film, and sexual fun as the average Joe might perceive it is not high on his list of priorities.‐ DVDTalk.com
