Mystic River (2003)

The Rundown (2003)

"A brisk, good- hearted but predictable and uninspired -- not to mention bone-crunchingly violent -- action comedy." ‐New York Post
Posted Sep 26, 2003

Emerald Cowboy (2003)

"Thanks to the amateurish, spectacularly talent-free quality of its cinematography, direction, writing and acting, Emerald Cowboy is simply impossible to sit through." ‐New York Post
Posted Sep 20, 2003

Underworld (2003)

"Sometimes talent and good looks just aren't enough -- [Beckinsale] lacks the movie star presence needed to give life to a supernatural hero in a B-genre film." ‐New York Post
Posted Sep 19, 2003
1.5/4 12%

Cold Creek Manor (2003)

The Order (2003)

"The movie would be perfect material for a resurrected version of the TV spoof Mystery Science Theater." ‐New York Post
Posted Sep 8, 2003
2.5/4 37%

Le Divorce (2003)

"Though not as witty or accomplished as you'd expect from its pedigree, Le Divorce provides welcome relief from the lame-brained trash Hollywood has foisted on the public this summer." ‐New York Post
Posted Aug 8, 2003
1/4 6%

Gigli (2003)

"An inept attempt to do Elmore Leonard by Martin Brest, a filmmaker whose coarse sensibility makes him catastrophically unqualified to the task." ‐New York Post

2.5/4 38%

Hotel (2003)

"There are clever, funny, erotic and visually beautiful moments scattered throughout the film." ‐New York Post

Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003)

How to Deal (2003)

"Teen soap opera." ‐New York Post
Posted Jul 17, 2003

Posted Jul 9, 2003
2/4 46%

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003)

"Bland music, marquee-friendly casting and crassly contemporary dialogue give this film the mechanical feel of a marketing exercise, not a movie." ‐New York Post

3/4 85%

Spider (2002)

"If you have the patience, its almost endless silences and extremely slow pacing eventually pay off." ‐New York Post

Spiders (2000)

Cradle 2 the Grave (2003)

"Would be a perfectly decent B-action movie if it weren't shipwrecked in the last act by laughably ridiculous plotting and a lazily executed climax." ‐New York Post
Posted Feb 28, 2003
1/4 8%

Gods and Generals (2003)

"It is so lacking in flesh-and-blood characters, so unclear in its depiction of battles like Bull Run, and so nauseating in its gruesome sentimentality that it is all but unwatchable." ‐New York Post
Posted Feb 20, 2003
2/4 61%

Gerry (2003)

"A series of images that have little meaning or emotional impact beyond their prettiness, and which become less compelling as time crawls slowly by." ‐New York Post
Posted Feb 14, 2003
1.5/4 42%

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)

"Clumsy, overlong." ‐New York Post
Posted Feb 7, 2003
1.5/4 48%

Final Destination 2 (2003)

"Though the complicated carnage is competently filmed and staged, the acting and the dialogue are often risible enough to make you wonder if the film isn't a spoof brought you by the folks from Scary Movie." ‐New York Post
Posted Jan 31, 2003
2/4 57%

The Guru (2002)

"If the film is true to the high spirits and vulgarity of Bollywood (and reasonably authentic in its depiction of Indian speech), it's also true to the crude plotting and characterization all too common in Bollywood." ‐New York Post
Posted Jan 31, 2003

Darkness Falls (2003)

"Could just as well have been titled Dumb Then Dumber for the way its plot makes decreasing sense even by the low standards of B horror flicks." ‐New York Post

National Security (2003)

"Lazy and uninspired." ‐New York Post
Posted Jan 17, 2003

Divine Intervention (2003)

"Veers uneasily and unsatisfyingly from kitschy, agitprop surrealism to a laconic spareness that is less profound than tedious." ‐New York Post

3.5/4 86%

Chicago (2002)

"Chicago improves upon the long-running Broadway show by Kander and Ebb in many ways." ‐New York Post

Nicholas Nickleby (2002)

"Nathan Lane as the flamboyant theatrical impresario Crummles has never been better or more restrained on film, and Alan Cumming and Timothy Spall are a pleasure, as always." ‐New York Post
Posted Dec 27, 2002
3/4 75%

Gangs of New York (2002)

"It vividly and energetically evokes a fascinating time and place that has never before been the subject of film, and presents a powerful if imperfectly coherent vision of urban politics at their most primal." ‐New York Post

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

"An amazing feat of imagination." ‐New York Post

2.5/4 64%

Evelyn (2002)

"Despite its treacly sentimentality, predictability and gutless evasiveness about the power of the church in 1950s Ireland, Evelyn manages to be an enjoyable piece of family entertainment." ‐New York Post
Posted Dec 13, 2002
2.5/4 37%

Star Trek - Nemesis (2002)

"It is far from the worst, thanks to the topical issues it raises, the performances of Stewart and Hardy, and that essential feature -- a decent full-on space battle." ‐New York Post
Posted Dec 12, 2002
3.5/4 91%

Adaptation (2002)

"Features what is surely the funniest and most accurate depiction of writer's block ever." ‐New York Post

Equilibrium (2002)

"Illiterate, often inert sci-fi action thriller." ‐New York Post
Posted Dec 6, 2002

Massoud, The Afghan (2002)

"An invaluable historical document thanks to the filmmaker's extraordinary access to Massoud, whose charm, cultivation and devotion to his people are readily apparent." ‐New York Post

Extreme Ops (2002)

"A pathetically inane and unimaginative cross between XXX and Vertical Limit." ‐New York Post
Posted Nov 29, 2002

Solaris (2002)

"So beautifully made (everything in it is understated except the gorgeous good looks of its stars) and turns out to have such real cumulative power that it is worth holding out to the end." ‐New York Post

The Quiet American (2003)

"Visually disappointing." ‐New York Post

Half Past Dead (2002)

"Has the cheesy, deadened feel of a straight-to-cable film." ‐New York Post
Posted Nov 15, 2002
3/4 76%

8 Mile (2002)

" What makes 8 Mile transcend the formulaic nature of its plot is the way it makes these rap competitions compelling even for those unfamiliar with rap music, and its scrupulous, loving rendition of a grim, wintry Detroit circa 1995." ‐New York Post
Posted Nov 8, 2002
2.5/4 79%

American Experience (2004)

"It isn't really to the credit of the makers of Daughter from Danang -- which understandably won the 2002 Sundance prize for best documentary -- that it turns out be so gripping." ‐New York Post
Posted Nov 1, 2002
2/4 55%

The Santa Clause 2 (2002)

"An intermittently amusing but soulless mechanism for the extraction of money from moviegoers." ‐New York Post

Frida (2002)

Ghost Ship (2002)

"A big, incoherent bore, interesting only as an example of assembly-line movie-making gone awry." ‐New York Post
