3/5 32% Around the World in 80 Days (2004) It's not as classic as the novel. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 60% The Terminal (2004) Much like the fictional Krakozhia, real-life logic and believable people don't exist. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 24% Van Helsing (2004) Even the classics knew not to run beyond 90 minutes. Sommers goes well past two hours, which takes a bite out of the fun. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 54% Troy (2004) Peter O'Toole brings a real thespian touch to King Priam, adding blueblood appeal to an otherwise working-class Troy. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 22% Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) The filmmakers may have captured the flavor of the popular cartoon a little too closely. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3.5/5 76% The Lion King 1 1/2 (2004) This is clearly the best video sequel that the mouse house has produced to date. Hakuna matata! - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 78% Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) Bubba Ho-Tep sounds more like a hip Saturday Night Live skit. Unfortunately, it also plays like a standard SNL movie, all high concept with little story. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 81% Step Into Liquid (2003) ...the human subjects of Dana Brown's documentary don't have much to say. Everyone recites the same "Surfing's great" mantra. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 62% Cabin Fever (2002) For all its bloodletting, Cabin Fever is a vicious bore. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 41% Freddy vs. Jason (2003) With two unkillable foes, this battle feels superfluous. There are a few clever moves, but this fight is simple slice-and-dice. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

1/5 8% Marci X (2003) The title must have been transcribed wrong. This film should be called Marci. . . Yech! - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 6% Gigli (2003) This could have been a more intriguing and darker tale. Evil people can fall in love, too . . . but, gosh, this isn't that movie. Ben and Jen are just too cute for nasty roles like that. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

1/5 22% Bad Boys II (2003) In a painful way, these Boys are really 2 bad. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

5/5 100% Modern Times (1936) Charlie Chaplin is the Orson Welles of comedy. One of his funniest silent films is Modern Times, a brilliant spoof on technology that's more stinging today than back in its 1936 release year. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 17% The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) LXG isn't DOA, but it's sending an SOS. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2003
2.4/5 45% Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) Though touted as 'traditional' animation, a good chunk of the film is computer-crafted. It's jarring to see the distinctly different styles clash in the same scenes. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2003
4/5 95% Winged Migration (2003) The amazing imagery that fills the screen magically mixes a National Geographic special with the artistry of Fantasia and the awe of Koyaanisqatsi. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2003
3.5/5 69% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines overhauls the original straight-faced tone of the series and tries hard to deliver the granddaddy of popcorn films. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2/5 10% From Justin To Kelly (2003) It's more dumbfounding that so much time is wasted on a cast of unknowns, second-stringers granted solos long before Kelly or Justin take center stage. Why not support with other first-season alums? - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

2.5/5 57% Jet Lag (2003) Jet Lag lives up to its title by landing in the middle of a tired romantic comedy. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3/5 62% Hulk (2003) He's mean and he's green, but The Hulk isn't lean at a running time of about two hours and 20 minutes. As its shortened title reflects, this Hulk isn't incredible. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

3.5/5 86% 28 Days Later (2003) With its B-movie sensibility, 28 Days Later is a tidy horror opus. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT

4.5/5 97% Spellbound (2002) It's all sharply captured to the letter in a new, captivating documentary. To spell it out, Spellbound is G-R-E-A-T. - Your Movies (cleveland.com) EDIT
