Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 55% Cellular (2004) 1/3 of a terrific thriller. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Sep 16, 2004
2/5 21% Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) [Witt's] journeyman effort totally lacks Anderson's smart-trash poetics and pulp-art visual sense. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Sep 16, 2004
1/5 18% Paparazzi (2004) The already indefensible vigilante genre gets degraded/updated to the Bush era. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 9, 2004
1/5 25% Wicker Park (2004) Being nonlinear means never having to make sense. Without its digressions and flash-forwards, Wicker Park's plot would barely fill two minutes of screen time. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 9, 2004
1/5 11% Exorcist: The Beginning (2004) Exorcist: The Beginning is less a fully formed franchise product than a bunch of naughty bits strung together. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Aug 26, 2004
5/5 95% Hero (2004) What we're seeing here is nothing less than literary ambition given a one-film-only visual syntax. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Aug 26, 2004
3.5/5 21% AVP - Alien Vs. Predator (2004) Anderson clearly relished making this wonderful, utterly silly film; his heart shows in every drip of slime. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Aug 19, 2004
1/5 95% Before Sunset (2004) As dull as drying paint -- little more than the sound of Linklater talking to himself in an echo chamber. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jul 30, 2004
2.5/5 81% The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions barbares) (2003) Sébastien, Nathalie and the film's other secondary characters are neat, shaded creations ably played. But unfortunately, this isn't their movie. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 9, 2004
1.5/5 71% The Company (2003) A numbingly nothing vanity project. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 19, 2004
2.5/5 72% Elephant (2003) Taking on the modern horror of the Columbine school shootings, the only answer writer/director Gus Van Sant comes up with is "beats me." ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 25, 2003
2/5 73% Buffalo Soldiers (2001) You realize that there's not much more at [Jordan's] film's heart than a self-satisfied, cynical smirk. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Nov 14, 2003
1.5/5 65% My Life Without Me (2003) Silly, dull and depressing. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 7, 2003
2.5/5 90% The Magdalene Sisters (2003) Quote not available. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Sep 11, 2003
4/5 96% Raising Victor Vargas (2003) Raising Victor Vargas is more than a terrific film -- it's a kind one. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 22, 2003
4.5/5 88% A Mighty Wind (2003) A hilarious film that boasts a world-class joke-per-minute ratio, yet also works as a deeply affecting tragedy. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 8, 2003
4/5 78% The Good Thief (2003) We have another -- no, the best -- of Jordan's valentines to outsider archetypes besmirched by eccentric dreams of beauty and transcendence from a glamorized but fatal low-life milieu. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 24, 2003
3/5 11% A Man Apart (2003) Grim business and more than a bit of a mess, but, aside from its hokey finales, honest in its despairing way. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Apr 10, 2003
1/5 19% The Life of David Gale (2003) Turns out to be not much more than a high-concept question padded out to feature length. ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Feb 27, 2003
5/5 92% Talk to Her (2002) A flawlessly realized ramble about love and death, wretchedness turned sublime and vice versa. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Feb 6, 2003
3/5 82% Drumline (2002) A sugar-coated Rocky whose valuable messages are forgotten 10 minutes after the last trombone honks. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Dec 13, 2002
2.5/5 54% The Transporter (2002) Because it dispenses with its plot specifics in about 15 minutes, The Transporter allows its audience ample time to ponder its multiple shortcomings and slight attractions. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Oct 10, 2002
2.5/5 86% 24 Hour Party People (2002) Though the filmmaker's attention to detail is unassailable, his relentless urge to prove his hipster bona-fides mangles his material. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Sep 19, 2002
4/5 69% Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) Easily trumping the Clones next door for sheer visual gosh-wow, Spirit's action is coherently kinetic, while the half hand-drawn, half CGI landmark vistas attain a magical, Wyeth-esque register. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted May 23, 2002
3/5 30% All About the Benjamins (2002) Often is ... an enjoyable if ethically threadbare caper flick. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Mar 14, 2002
77% Our Lady of the Assassins (2001) Although not without its plangently grim observations, Our Lady is pretty inert material. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Nov 8, 2001
24% Don't Say a Word (2001) Director Gary Fleder animates his contrivances with considerable pep, but the whole concept is a bit overtired. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Sep 27, 2001
68% Charlie's Angels (2000) Charlie's Angels is an utterly ridiculous movie, but one that, through sheer pluck, manages to make ridiculousness a redeeming quality. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jan 1, 2000
78% Requiem for a Dream (2000) It is one of the few possibly great films in this moribund year. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
