Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Planet of the Apes (2001)

"The most disappointing aspect of Planet of the Apes is that, despite its presentation, the film is so very ordinary, without urgency or revelation." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Jul 26, 2001

Made (2001)

"Despite the film's faults, Favreau puts a fresh spin on the mob movie genre, and that's something we can all admire." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Jul 20, 2001

What's the Worst That Could Happen? (2001)

"Answers its own question with botched gags, strained set-pieces, and a confused, upstaged star." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted May 31, 2001

The Mummy Returns (2001)

"The movie's a blast." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted May 3, 2001

Driven (2001)

"A slick, simplistic, and laughable effort that's reminiscent of a bad Jerry Bruckheimer film. A really bad Bruckheimer film." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Apr 26, 2001

Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001)

"There's not much here. Then again, there's not much here to object to, either." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Apr 19, 2001

Beautiful Creatures (2001)

"Both Simon Donald's script and Bill Eagles' direction lack humor and rhythm." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Apr 5, 2001

Tomcats (2001)

"This movie bites." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Mar 29, 2001

Too Much Sleep (2001)

"For a modest film, however, Too Much Sleep is a modest surprise." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Mar 22, 2001

Enemy at the Gates (2001)

"Marred by an unconvincing love triangle and an insincere dénouement, it's a story that nonetheless resonates as much as Saving Private Ryan does." ‐ Mr. Showbiz

15 Minutes (2001)

"Boasts a fine cast and makes enough cogent points that it rises above standard cop fare." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Mar 8, 2001
15/100 14%

3000 Miles to Graceland (2001)

"Nonsense from its first frame to its last, stupid beyond even the conventions of its genre, it begs the question of responsibility." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Feb 22, 2001
30/100 20%

Down to Earth (2001)

"Rock can't really be expected to pull off the love scenes, but for a man trying to reach the largest possible audience, his comedy is surprisingly uninspired." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Feb 16, 2001
75/100 78%

The Pledge (2001)

"Jack Nicholson passes on the ham, delivering a subtle, weighted performance that neatly complements Sean Penn's growing confidence as a director." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Jan 18, 2001

All the Pretty Horses (2000)

"It's as if Thornton and scripter Ted Tally are so concerned with big themes and Old West mythology that they forget they've got to present a real live cowboy in order for any of it to work." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 24, 2000
84/100 90%

Cast Away (2000)

"Hanks turns in an Oscar-worthy performance yet again." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 21, 2000

Vertical Limit (2000)

"The special effects look good, the stunts and cinematography are outstanding, and once the film gets moving, there are few extraneous moments." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 7, 2000

Whipped (1999)

"The best way to say this is succinctly and with a noble degree of restraint: Whipped is cinematic suicide, if not for actor, then certainly for audience." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Space Cowboys (2000)

"[Eastwood] made a mature film that bests nearly all of the summer's highly touted blockbusters for pure escapism." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Men of Honor (2000)

"Ultimately, Men of Honor is sunk by its own melodramatic falseness, and it stands as a well-meaning yet lacking tribute to a courageous man." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

The Legend of Drunken Master (Jui kuen II) (Drunken Fist II) (1994)

"Massively entertaining." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999
74/100 68%

Unbreakable (2000)

"During a conversation between an astonished doctor and a miraculously unscathed Dunne ... it's a measure of Shyamalan's restraint and his uncanny knack for storytelling." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999
35/100 31%

102 Dalmatians (2000)

"A film without mirth or magic." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Remember the Titans (2000)

"Titans may prove that Bruckheimer has a social conscience, but it can't hide his penchant for pandering." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Bait (2000)

"Fuqua draws from so many disparate genres to energize the film that fusion gives way to confusion." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Gone in 60 Seconds (Gone in Sixty Seconds) (2000)

"Discounting certain holiday-themed movies, there has rarely been a film so in touch with the season of its release as Gone in 60 Seconds." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

The Ladies Man (2000)

"80 minutes of comic mistiming and missed opportunities." ‐ Mr. Showbiz

70/100 41%

The 6th Day (2000)

"File this one somewhere in the upper echelon of Arnold films -- it won't make you forget The Terminator, but it's much more endurable than the likes of Eraser." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Play It to the Bone (1999)

"As empty as a Don King pay-per-view bout." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

The Art of War (2000)

"Two hours' worth of painful stupidity, overt racism, and mind-battering noise and movement." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Snow Falling on Cedars (1999)

"Hicks determinedly neglects almost every other narrative element for the sake of atmosphere, a decision that robs the film of almost everything that made Guterson's story compelling." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (1999)

"70 minutes of irritation." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Get Carter (2000)

"David McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen (2000)

"Catholic propaganda? Perhaps. But it's one hell of a movie." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
Posted Dec 31, 1999

The Replacements (2000)

"An agreeably and unapologetically lightweight late-summer blockbuster." ‐ Mr. Showbiz
