78% Bad Santa (2003) John Ritter's final film is a sad reminder of how the double entendres of Three's Company have now been replaced by flagrant, in-your face fouls.‐ FilmStew.com

B- 64% The Shape Of Things (2002) Provocateur LaBute not only dramatically throws the 'c' word at us in this film, but he also goes to great lengths to show us one.‐ Big Picture

B 85% Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) More memorable for its performances than any facet of the plot, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World sometimes feels as long as its title.‐ FilmStew.com

A- 84% Gloomy Sunday (2003) A borderline classic, this is a movie that harkens back to such films as Casablanca, but still confidently asserts its own unique voice.‐ FilmStew.com

C+ 78% Tupac: Resurrection (2003) To say he was complicated doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of what Tupac was really about. Unfortunately, neither does this film.‐ FilmStew.com

C- 36% Returner (2002) Yamazaki has made himself into a cover band, content to play Van Halen classics for middle-aged boys looking for a trip down memory lane.‐ FilmStew.com

B- 51% Dopamine (2003) Director Mark Decena and his writing partner show a good deal of promise for their future efforts, but some bad decisions and simplistic characters keep Dopamine from being anything to fall in love with.‐ FilmStew.com

B+ 75% Intolerable Cruelty (2003) Even a lesser Coen brothers film is still better than most "good" movies, and Cruelty is well worth the price of admission.‐ FilmStew.com

65% Out of Time (2003) If you base your decision on the poster, you will miss a fairly inventive, atmospheric and endearing movie that is never anything less than adequately entertaining.‐ FilmStew.com

D+ 43% Camera Obscura (2003) Thanks to a lack of innovation and a tired script, writer/director Hamlet Sarkissian is about as cutting edge as the out-of-touch friend who keeps trying to tell you that Michael Jackson's latest albums are as good as his old stuff.‐ FilmStew.com

C 44% Luther (2003) Till's movie is most notable for achieving the impossible: making Martin Luther's story into a snooze fest.‐ FilmStew.com

F 28% It Runs in the Family (2003) Five years from now this will be remembered as the most expensive home movie ever made by a family. The DVD will look great on the Douglas family shelf - but God knows it won't be on anybody else's.‐ Countingdown.com

B- 35% The Real Cancun (2003) If you're a fan of reality shows you'll probably enjoy this movie. But do you really want to pay $10 to see something that you can watch on TV for free?‐ Countingdown.com

C 23% Bulletproof Monk (2003) The script seems to have been developed with a desire for the bare minimum, and that work ethic has been passed on to the editing, special effects and fight choreography departments as well.‐ Countingdown.com
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2003
B+ 87% Lilja 4-ever (2003) A bleak, blistering, beautiful treasure of a film that presents wasted life in all its horrific vividness.‐ Countingdown.com

C 11% A Man Apart (2003) This is a movie that should have starred one of the forgotten Baldwins and premiered at the bottom of a discount bin.‐ Countingdown.com
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2003
B- 21% Basic (2003) If you can give a movie credit for at least attempting to be intelligent, then you'll appreciate John McTiernan's writhing, raging, overly eager-to-please Basic.‐ Countingdown.com

Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2003
B- 30% Dreamcatcher (2003) Takes turns being charming, boring, suspenseful, silly, imaginative and cliched, and is ultimately brought down by its frustrating refusal to decide what tale it wants to tell.‐ Countingdown.com
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2003
B+ 64% Willard (2003) This new Willard is the rarest of films - a remake that completely eclipses the original - and the most significant reason is Glover's performance.‐ Countingdown.com
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2003
B+ 29% The Hunted (2003) Friedkin keeps a blissful tension from the first frame to the last, and that makes it a difficult movie to not get caught up in.‐ Countingdown.com
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2003
D+ 34% Bringing Down the House (2003) It relies on stolen gags for humor, forced relationships for empathy, and racist jokes for shock value.‐ Countingdown.com
