Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 44% Love Me if You Dare (2004) The director's flights of cinematic fancy sometimes seem, like each of the lovers' antics, to be amusing primarily to himself. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 23, 2004
3/5 82% Prisoner of Paradise (2002) Excels is in its interviewees and the range of its historical images and information. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 16, 2004
3/5 63% Two Men Went to War (2004) The film -- although slight -- works wonderfully. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 3, 2004
2.5/5 13% Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London (2004) As is, for the preteen crowd, this sequel will have enough movement and comedy to satisfy. But there's probably too little of either to justify a Cody 3. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2004
2.5/5 22% Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004) In the 1987 Dirty Dancing and 2004's Havana-set remake, the settings of the stories are virtually the same except in their particulars. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 1, 2004
2/5 49% Secret Things (2003) Secret Things loses that narrative midway through. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 19, 2004
3/5 63% In My Skin (Dans ma peau) (2002) Even as Esther carves farther into her skin, devouring pieces, a moviegoer travels beyond such Hannibal Lecter territory and farther into the psyche and soul of a tortured woman. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 7, 2003
2.5/5 44% Good Boy! (2003) Though well distant from family-classic status, Good Boy! offers just enough to succeed in its mission, however ephemeral. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 10, 2003
3/5 62% Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) [The actors] strike most every note with a resonance that -- of course -- carries through to the heart. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 26, 2003
3.5/5 92% Millennium Actress (Sennen joyû) (2001) A striking achievement. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 21, 2003
3/5 81% Venus Boyz (2003) Venus Boyz is not a pro/con documentary in which each 'side' states its case; it's something more intimate, a succession of interior explorations by each performer. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 22, 2003
2.5/5 40% This Thing of Ours (2003) It looks fine, it plays fine, it sounds fine, but it has no consequence. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 3, 2003
3/5 49% And Now Ladies & Gentlemen (2003) Consider And Now... Ladies & Gentlemen as one small CAT scan of self, a bit of existentialism put to melody. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2003
3.5/5 6% Gigli (2003) Kudos to Brest, and to Affleck and Lopez, who deliver -- although that delivery is exactly the opposite of what their fans, and their disbelievers, expect to receive. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2003
3.5/5 80% I Capture the Castle (2003) Garai provides the film's heart; every key action or decision of her family or the fellows seems to seep through her and become imprinted on her soul. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 11, 2003
3.5/5 72% Bonhoeffer (2003) Provides both a viewpoint on and images of the period unlike those of other films on the Third Reich era. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 3, 2003
3/5 41% Rugrats Go Wild (2003) A pleasing enough one for adults and tots alike. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 20, 2003
2.5/5 67% Kira's Reason: A Love Story (2003) Had the film's center been the husband, it would have been more intriguing. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2003
3/5 39% Agent Cody Banks (2003) Muniz must carry this movie alone -- and he's equal to the task. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2003
2/5 14% The Young Unknown (2000) The young players here are already on their A game, but the script they were given was first draft. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 10, 2003
2.5/5 38% On_Line (2003) Any film with Hamilton is worth a watch, just for that. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 10, 2003
2.5/5 82% Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (2003) Certainly tells a tale of fine humanism, but it fails to capture in substantial depth the tragedies and triumphs that militant blacks encountered during the times. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 14, 2003
3/5 19% The Jungle Book 2 (2003) Director Steve Trenbirth and scripter Karl Geurs do a pleasant, if tots-targeted, job of updating the story's setting and its characterizations for the 21st century. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 14, 2003
3/5 96% Elsker Dig For Evigt (2002) Sans set lamps, Bier faces the responsibility of lighting her characters from the inside, so to speak, and she does a remarkable job doing so. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 19, 2003
3.5/5 77% Nicholas Nickleby (2002) Like Dickens with his passages, McGrath crafts quite moving scenes throughout his resolutely dramatic variation on the novel. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 5, 2003
3/5 40% The Lonely Affair of the Heart (2002) It's an intriguing effort.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 27, 2002
2.5/5 87% Hybrid (2001) Two-thirds in, this American biogothic collapses like stalks under hail. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 6, 2002
3.5/5 81% Stuart Little 2 (2002) An amusing, even joyful second take on E.B. White's beloved children's book. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 19, 2002
3/5 80% War Photographer (2001) Although commentary on Nachtwey is provided ... it's the image that really tells the tale. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2002
2.5/5 57% Like Mike (2002) However intoxicating young moviegoers might find Calvin's on-court success, what was needful onscreen was more of the simple humanity a story about orphans should not only have recognized but delivered. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2002
2/5 80% Last Dance (2002) What is captured during the conceptual process doesn't add up to a sufficient explanation of what the final dance work, The Selection, became in its final form.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 12, 2002
2.5/5 53% The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002) However ineptly made, Crocodile Hunter is a movie that diverse audiences will like -- but only because Steve Irwin is in it. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 12, 2002
4/4 79% Beautiful Girls (1996) With only a few lapses, Scott Rosenberg's script is so good it outshines his much-praised Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 25, 2002
3/5 No Score Yet Young Love (2001) Lehkamo's work with his young leads draws out sensitive and clear performances. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 16, 2002
2.5/5 7% All the Queen's Men (2001) A modestly comic, modestly action-oriented World War II adventure that, in terms of authenticity, is one of those films that requires the enemy to never shoot straight. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 16, 2002
3/5 41% The Next Big Thing (2002) [Eigeman's] driving insistence to reach some meaningful point with his Gus pushes The Next Big Thing into otherwise undeserved success. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 10, 2002
5% A Kid in King Arthur's Court (1995) For fantasy to work, two elements are required: an audience willing to suspend its disbelief, and a film able to create its own logically consistent world. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
81% In the Bleak Midwinter (A Midwinter's Tale) (1996) Although this is clearly a warmup for Branagh's full-length dramatic "Hamlet," at 100 minutes it's pleasant enough for whiling away a bleak midwinter night. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2.5/5 63% Kansas City (1996) The film moves with the slowness of an opium daze, and it transmits its plot information with the incremental dit-dot-dash of a wire message. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 60% The Edge (1997) The Edge, more of a drama than the action/thriller it's being billed as, exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2.5/5 77% Denise Calls Up (1996) Denise Calls Up is, if limited, a surprising success. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
5% The Avengers (1998) There's little of the fun complexity of many Macnee-Rigg scenes. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
4/5 87% Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) The question is not whether the movie will succeed, but whether its success will give TriStar a new film franchise. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2/5 60% The Gingerbread Man (1997) Little more than 120 minutes of nifty storm sounds. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
.5/5 19% Showgirls (1995) Perhaps the worst movie of the year. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 61% She's the One (1996) How well does Burns tread water? On the whole, acceptably. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
1/5 3% McHale's Navy (1997) This McHale's Navy would never have floated as programming ballast on a bad night of network TV. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
21% Magic in the Water (1995) A film likely to delight only the youngest moviegoers. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 24% White Man's Burden (1995) A look at color relations that's likely to be more compelling for nonurban audiences than the latest take on drug dealing and gang banging in the 'hood. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3/5 79% Scream (1996) Scream's most effective scenes are those involving the most dire peril. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
