36% Spice World (1998) "Spice World is a smart vehicle for the Girls, a cheerful and occasionally witty self-parody that does for the Spices what Help! and A Hard Day's Night did for the Beatles. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jun 21, 2016
3/4 66% The Pillow Book (1997) "It is exciting that in an age of mass book signings and disrespect for literature, Greenaway is able to sexualize the author's signature as it sweeps up a woman's neck. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted May 2, 2016
3/4 79% Office Space (1999) "With a judiciously executed hip-hop soundtrack and the same anti-conformist spirit that informs Judge's TV cartoons, "Office Space" can expect to attract people who aren't even old enough to be stuck in dead-end jobs. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 19, 2016
3/4 72% Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1973) "Bowie knew how to play his audience, and the documentary shows him as a fiercely concentrated performance artist on and offstage, who micromanaged everything from his makeup palette to the length of his kimono sleeves. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Nov 2, 2015
3/4 57% Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) "Yeoh proves so much Bond's equal that they wind up sharing steering privileges on a death-defying motorcycle, her hand on the clutch and his on the brake, their other arms twined around each other. It's a pairing made in sequel heaven. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 1, 2015
2/4 79% Fight Club (1999) "Oh, for the time when men were men and were encouraged to beat the tar out of one another. That's the world "Fight Club" pines for. " ‐ New York Daily News

4/4 94% Pulp Fiction (1994) "It resurrects John Travolta from "Look Who's Talking" hell, it makes Bruce Willis into a serious actor and it honors the power and fancy of intelligent dialogue (written by the director himself). " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Sep 29, 2014
2/4 27% Lost in Space (1998) "The new robot is a disappointment. Instead of the endearingly low-tech fireplug of yore that warned Will Robinson of encroaching danger, the new machine is all bells and whistles and no fun at all. Kinda like the movie itself. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 17, 2014

Posted Aug 19, 2014
4/4 94% The Truman Show (1998) "The premise of Peter Weir's The Truman Show is both reasonable and ludicrous, its execution sublime. " ‐ New York Daily News

75% A Beautiful Mind (2001) "The result is one of the most successful attempts to make math look sexy, even if the movie strays - gallops, really - from the details of the actual life of Nobel Prize-winner John Forbes Nash Jr. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Feb 4, 2014
