Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
90% Sleeping Beauty (1959) Despite being a gorgeously animated movie, the story is far too slight to amount to much substance.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 70% The Rundown (2003) With actors who were once the very definition of "action star" taking new directions almost out of necessity, it's time for a new champion of the genre to emerge.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 92% Millennium Actress (Sennen joyû) (2001) The truth and the fiction are seamlessly interwoven as one scene blends effortlessly into the next.‐ Box Office Prophets

B 23% Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003) Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star is a charming and humorous ode to those entertainers who dedicated their youth to making audiences smile.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 78% Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) Less slapsticky and punch-line driven than the John Hughes productions that also typify the '80s, it's an honest and genuine look at high school life in that period.‐ Box Office Prophets

B 20% Stitch! The Movie (2003) While it's primarily going to find its biggest audience amongst children who will enjoy the raucous and goofy action and quotable jokes, there are also plenty of sly references there for the die-hard fans of Lilo & Stitch.‐ Box Office Prophets

B+ 64% O (2001) Though "O" is decidedly not uplifting, the film does provide a singularly satisfying movie-going experience on many levels.‐ Box Office Prophets

A- 82% The Deep End (2001) This movie gives the viewer a light push as it slowly reveals its layers through character development and the genuine tension displayed through its stars' dynamic performances.‐ Box Office Prophets

F 46% Jeepers Creepers (2001) The story is abhorrently foul and the ending is contemptible.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B 49% Hearts in Atlantis (2001) Hearts in Atlantis succeeds by being an unobtrusive, thoughtful look at the importance of friendship and loyalty through the youthful eyes of a highly-appealing and thoroughly likeable young character.‐ Box Office Prophets

B 43% Two Can Play That Game (2001) The film moves along at a brisk, carefree pace, and though the plotline is rather predictable, going through the ten-day program with Shante is a blast.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B 64% Zoolander (2001) It's a fairly thin premise, to be certain, but Zoolander is still a lot of fun to watch, even though the film is ultimately forgettable.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B 21% Bones (2001) Bones is also infused with an indelible sense of style, partially thanks to director Ernest R. Dickerson's ability to deftly switch between the present and the past, but also because Snoop Dogg just oozes cool.‐ Box Office Prophets

B+ 69% Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) Though it is a G-rated children's film, Spirit is layered a bit more deeply and is, at times, brutally honest about some of the uglier days of North American history.‐ Box Office Prophets

A No Score Yet Ben Harper - Pleasure and Pain (2002) It's really the intimacy of the documentary that is most striking.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 95% Castle in the Sky (1989) It should come as no surprise that Miyazaki is an ardent fan of French writer/aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery, who used his own experiences as a pilot to craft memorable tales such as Night Flight and Flight to Arras.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 97% Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) It's truly impossible to watch this film without falling head over heels in love with both Kiki and Jiji.‐ Box Office Prophets

A+ 97% Spirited Away (2002) Spirited Away is as deep and layered as any film you're likely to see, yet it is also completely accessible to children and adults alike.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 97% Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) A landmark special effects film that revitalized the animated film industry, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an ingenious cartoon noir that is a delight for all ages.‐ Box Office Prophets

A- 82% Watership Down (1978) By today's standards, it's not a triumph of technical animation, but the story is unique, cerebral and serene, and a delight for animal-lovers.‐ Box Office Prophets
Posted Aug 23, 2003
B 69% Treasure Planet (2002) While the movie could have been a landmark in animation, it winds up being just a trifle, with spectators recalling that it's pretty but very little else.‐ Box Office Prophets

A+ 59% Down With Love (2003) Down with Love fulfills its true promise with a screenplay that sparkles with wit and joie de vivre.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A- 96% Ghost in the Shell (1996) Particularly breathtaking is a quick cut to a group of schoolchildren running across the screen, their yellow umbrellas adding a splash of brightness to a movie that would generally considered to be of noir derivation.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 86% 28 Days Later (2003) Like the Romero "Dead" films that came before it, 28 Days Later examines interpersonal relationships and the politics that occur when the species sees itself threatened by decimation.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A- 81% Better Luck Tomorrow (2002) Refreshing isn't quite the appropriate word, but Better Luck Tomorrow is certainly unique in its portrayal of an apathetic and disaffected ethnic American group.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 97% Chicken Run (2000) Both Aardman Animations and their creations are examples of how the unlikeliest heroes can accomplish big, big things.‐ Box Office Prophets

A 95% Hero (2004) Yimou skillfully combines the beauty of an impressionist painting with a story reminiscent of Shakespeare for a sweeping epic that never feels overblown or exaggerated.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A 94% Dirty Pretty Things (2003) From the amusingly misleading title to the idiosyncratic humor to the far from storybook romance, Dirty Pretty Things is a perfectly constructed and deliberately paced film that draws the viewer in and maintains the intrigue from start to finish.‐ Box Office Prophets

A+ 90% Bambi (1942) The movie is a perfect examination of wide-eyed innocents and the pains they experience as they mature.‐ Box Office Prophets

B 73% The Italian Job (2003) The movie adroitly alternates from action to suspense and over to pure comedy as it barrels along to its feel-good finish.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A 99% Finding Nemo (2003) It's a very subtle film about acceptance and loyalty - many of the characters in the film aren't quite "normal," and there's a lesson about embracing those who are different that is imparted not by hitting viewers over the head but by making the various c‐ Box Office Prophets

F 36% 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) The story is less complicated than a picture book.‐ Box Office Prophets

C- 100% Alice (Neco z Alenky) (1988) The end result is an incredibly outlandish and ultimately unsettling movie experience that really isn't for everyone.‐ Box Office Prophets

B 30% Hollywood Homicide (2003) The dialogue sparkles, and while much of that is due to the actual screenplay and direction, Hollywood Homicide really succeeds on the strength of its two stars, Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett.‐ Box Office Prophets

B+ 45% Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) The actual human characters are wonderfully animated, with extremely expressive faces that represent a wide range of cultures.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B- 43% Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle (2003) It's a celebration of the exercise in dottiness known as '70s television and a movie that pokes fun at sequels even as it is one itself.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A 85% The Emperor's New Groove (2000) There are lots of pratfalls and plenty of silliness, but the film shows an intelligence and wit that is on a par with near-perfect stuff like What's Opera, Doc?‐ Box Office Prophets

B- 70% Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines (2003) Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines marks a return to the simplicity that makes the first film in the series such a thing of glory.‐ Box Office Prophets

Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
C 40% Rugrats Go Wild (2003) Rugrats Go Wild! tries too hard to build unnecessary character development and loses the bulk of the charm that makes the series work.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
C- 37% Legally Blonde 2 - Red, White & Blonde (2003) In a summer of big, dumb, noisy sequels, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde emerges as simply dumb.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
D- 17% The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a movie so horrifically bad and offensive to the senses that even Joel and the 'bots would have a hard time finding any redeeming value in it.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A- 85% Bend It like Beckham (2003) The story isn't about 'football';" it's rather a coming-of-age tale that focuses on marching to one's own drummer despite convention and cultural ideals.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
A 91% Whale Rider (2003) By the time Whale Rider arrives at a fairly unorthodox and surprisingly suspenseful ending, the viewer will be so in love with the characters that the emotional impact is almost unsettling.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B+ 66% Shanghai Knights (2003) Shanghai Knights is a big movie with an idiosyncratic, small movie feel to it.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
D 23% Bad Boys II (2003) No fan of subtlety, Bay uses Bad Boys II as an exercise in excess and a thumb of the nose to anyone who believes that action films should be tight, gripping, and thrilling.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B- 25% Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) It's all about the hot action scenes (and they are certainly video game-inspired), the lush cinematography and Jolie's ability to believably step into the character.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B 88% Freaky Friday (2003) Curtis is responsible for the lion's share of the laughs, which are certainly plentiful.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
D 48% Final Destination 2 (2003) Instead, Final Destination 2 (pause for a moment to consider how ridiculous that title is) goes for all the glitz and none of the substance.‐ Box Office Prophets
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2003
B+ 64% Gin gwai (The Eye) (2002) From the film's earliest moments when she is just opening her eyes to the world to an end sequence that is shocking in its extravagance, Lee's ability to make the audience feel every emotion her character is experiencing is remarkable and quite frankly, a‐ Box Office Prophets
