Good Bye, Lenin! (2004)

"Wolfgang Becker's social satire has a knobby tone that somewhat mutes its crowd-pleasing ambitions and keeps it from becoming My Big, Fat Life Is Beautiful." ‐New York Times

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004)

"This reimagining of the recklessly melodramatic 1987 original is packed with flashy, taffeta silliness." ‐New York Times

Eurotrip (2003)

"Now that bad taste has become officially institutionalized, this sometimes funny comedy has all of the anarchic charge of getting a tattoo at Wal-Mart." ‐New York Times

Love Object (2003)

"Robert Parigi shows a kicky sense of humor in this brisk low-budget film, and ably creates a smirking menace." ‐New York Times
Posted Feb 13, 2004
3.5/5 72%

Robot Stories (2004)

"Greg Pak's fantasy anthology piece, which details the ways robots have complicated the lives of humans, has a dexterous sense of wonder that nonetheless leaves the film feeling a bit detached." ‐New York Times

Miracle (2004)

"This movie version of the 1980 United States Olympic hockey team's Cinderella season does a yeoman's job of recycling the day-old dough that passes for its story." ‐New York Times

Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004)

Posted Feb 5, 2004
4.5/5 94%

Blind Shaft (2003)

"It's the last thing you'd expect: a movie that is a commentary on socialism, a film noir and entirely compelling. But that is the case with Li Yang's Blind Shaft." ‐New York Times

Teacher's Pet (2004)

"Disney's marvelously quick-witted and gloriously goofy hand-drawn feature gets more laughs out of 74 minutes than many recent live-action comedies got out of much more time." ‐New York Times

Millennium Mambo (Qianxi Manbo) (2001)

Posted Dec 30, 2003
3.5/5 71%

The Company (2003)

"Robert Altman's new film, which follows a Chicago-based dance troupe through a few months of its regular season, is enjoyably lithe and droll." ‐New York Times

Stuck on You (2003)

"It's a much funnier movie than the trailer would lead you to believe; it would almost have to be. But it is just not as consistent as their previous trash wallows." ‐New York Times

The Last Samurai (2003)

21 Grams (2003)

"You won't come out unaffected, because the depths of intimacy that the Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu plumbs here are so rarely touched by filmmakers that 21 Grams is tantamount to the discovery of a new country." ‐New York Times
