Beyond the Sea (2004)

"Offers little psychological insight into the man beyond his mantra -- 'I want it all. ... I want to surpass Sinatra in everything he does.'" ‐Houston Chronicle

A Very Long Engagement (2004)

House of Flying Daggers (2004)

"We get a movie that's easy to look at but that leaves us emotionally cold." ‐Houston Chronicle

Spanglish (2004)

"Easy to enjoy, if you're at all susceptible to this sort of thing, but it leaves you with nothing to think about, except for all the opportunities Brooks missed to make something worthwhile out of the material." ‐Houston Chronicle

Ocean's Twelve (2004)

"Ocean's Twelve feels like a lark, a dashed-off confiture that isn't so much a movie as an excuse for a bunch of old friends to hang out in Europe with somebody else paying the bill." ‐Houston Chronicle

Closer (2004)

"In Closer, a searing drama that dares speak the truth about modern adult relationships, it's hard to distinguish between sincere emotion and manipulation, between true caring and heartless self-interest." ‐Houston Chronicle

I Am David (2004)

"The film is marred by too many coincidences, but there are a couple of twists at the end that tug at the heartstrings and leave you with a warm feeling." ‐Houston Chronicle

Kinsey (2004)

"The biopic succumbs to a paint-by-numbers feel as it dutifully touches the highs and lows of a life that can't easily fit within two hours." ‐Houston Chronicle

Alexander (2004)

"Stone's failures with this film are largely honorable, but occasionally he miscalculates and strikes so badly off-key that he seems tone deaf." ‐Houston Chronicle

Sideways (2004)

"This isn't the sort of road comedy we're used to seeing. Its humor is more likely to provoke smiles and light chuckles than guffaws." ‐Houston Chronicle

Enduring Love (2004)

"Does a fine job of slowly racheting up the psychological tension." ‐Houston Chronicle

Undertow (2004)

"From its opening lines and first enigmatic image, everything about Undertow is both dreamlike and real, artfully elusive and matter-of-fact." ‐Houston Chronicle

Alfie (2004)

"Alfie is a bore." ‐Houston Chronicle

Being Julia (2004)

"An intelligently witty comedy that boasts the sort of performance from Annette Bening that had wags predicting an Academy Award nomination months ago." ‐Houston Chronicle

Ray (2004)

"What can Ray tell us about such a familiar figure? A Lot." ‐Houston Chronicle

Birth (2004)

"The movie doesn't have the courage to fully embrace the material -- neither the scandalousness of it, nor the psychological and metaphysical implications." ‐Houston Chronicle

Vera Drake (2004)

"One of Leigh's better movies." ‐Houston Chronicle

Tarnation (2004)

Surviving Christmas (2004)

"Is it just me, or does anyone else think it odd Dreamworks is releasing a Christmas movie before Halloween?" ‐Houston Chronicle

I Heart Huckabees (2004)

"So willfully, smugly eccentric that it grows tiresome rather quickly." ‐Houston Chronicle

The Final Cut (2004)

"This first feature from writer-director Omar Naim is unusually accomplished." ‐Houston Chronicle

Shall We Dance (2004)

Friday Night Lights (2004)

"Friday Night Lights is the best [football movie] I've seen, and I'm hard-pressed to think of another film about sports -- any sport -- that surpasses it." ‐Houston Chronicle

When Will I Be Loved (2004)

"Weller has a bright future; he's compelling and funny as Ford. Campbell, with her little-girl voice and easy, guileless smile, is the perfect choice for the role of a woman everyone underestimates." ‐Houston Chronicle

The Forgotten (2004)

"It's amazing the acting talent assembled for this mess." ‐Houston Chronicle

Silver City (2004)

"Silver City has a detective plot, important themes, clever lines and a passel of intriguing characters, but they're not put together in a way that holds your interest." ‐Houston Chronicle

The Corporation (2004)

"The rare movie that sets out to alter the audience's consciousness -- and succeeds." ‐Houston Chronicle

Cellular (2004)

"Logic has nothing to do with Cellular, but it's so quick-moving and fun we don't care." ‐Houston Chronicle

Mean Creek (2004)

"Estes dives into this material as if it's never been done before, and his characters and situations are so realistic and the film's tone is so assured that he succeeds at making it feel fresh." ‐Houston Chronicle

Wicker Park (2004)

"The plot contains a few nice surprises, but the movie works most spectacularly as a compendium of idiotic movie behavior." ‐Houston Chronicle

Hero (2004)

"So self-consciously beautiful that it's distracting, but it elevates the material nevertheless." ‐Houston Chronicle

We Don't Live Here Anymore (2004)

"Dramatically slack, the story isn't driven by plot so much as by the slow revelation of character." ‐Houston Chronicle

James' Journey to Jerusalem (2004)

"A pointed and funny allegory about a clash of values." ‐Houston Chronicle

Bush's Brain (2004)

"It's a competent examination of an important subject, but in a year that has been filled with stunning political documentaries with high production values, it suffers from an overreliance on talking heads." ‐Houston Chronicle

King Arthur (2004)

"One of the reasons this film works is that we don't feel as if we're watching these people through the scrim of history and legend -- they feel immediate, even contemporary." ‐Houston Chronicle

America's Heart and Soul (2004)

Baadasssss! (2003)

"Mario lacks the finesse as a filmmaker to deliver the nuanced portrait his father deserves, but he largely succeeds: We see Melvin as a flawed man, but one who worked for something larger than himself." ‐Houston Chronicle
