Posted Jul 23, 2008
56% George of the Jungle (1997) Not quite inspired lunacy, the film has a game, likable quality and strong sequel potential.‐ Variety
Posted Jul 23, 2008
28% Maximum Risk (1996) It's a visceral delight that refuses to be deterred by niceties of plot or character consistency and prefers sweat to emotion.‐ Variety
Posted Jul 8, 2008
91% Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998) The script by Susannah Grant, Rick Parks and director Andy Tennant successfully maintains the story's period trappings while introducing a heroine with modern resonance.‐ Variety
Posted Jul 1, 2008

Posted Jun 26, 2008
22% Wrongfully Accused (1998) The best gags pop up in the closing credits, which should tell you something about what precedes the finale.‐ Variety
Posted Jun 17, 2008

100% Toy Story (1995) The film sports a provocative and appealing story that's every bit the equal of this technical achievement.‐ Variety
Posted Jun 9, 2008
67% The Wedding Singer (1998) Supporting players are uniformly strong, and Coraci deserves much credit for exacting just the right degree of outrageousness without spinning into some wild orbit.‐ Variety
Posted Jun 1, 2008
8% Bulletproof (1996) The criminal activity onscreen in Bulletproof is penny ante compared with the felonious slaughter of story, character and logic exacted by the pic's filmmakers.‐ Variety
Posted Jun 1, 2008

Posted May 13, 2008
70% Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) A loving paean to Bond, Flint, Helm and their ilk (as well as a myriad of outlandish villains), the film knows its turf and only missteps when it ventures into more contemporary territory.‐ Variety
Posted Apr 1, 2008
67% Maverick (1994) There can be little doubt that a whole new generation is about to discover the charm, wit and fun of Maverick.‐ Variety
Posted Mar 25, 2008
42% BASEketball (1998) The vulgar, obvious humor of Zucker brother David and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone elicits easy, guilty laughs, yet the material has an underlying innocence that's just shy of good clean fun.‐ Variety
Posted Mar 25, 2008

26% Born Yesterday (1993) The verdict on the makeover is not all good news.‐ Variety
Posted Jan 11, 2008
75% The Santa Clause (1994) This is a hip, likable spin on the seasonal icon told with a deft mixture of comedy and sentimentality.‐ Variety
Posted Nov 27, 2007
94% Fargo (1996) Fargo is a strikingly mature, uniqueentertainment that plays on many levels ... all satisfying.‐ Variety
Posted Nov 6, 2007
39% Young People Fucking (Y.P.F.) (2007) There's too much talk and not enough action in the balance and eventually the straitjacket structure of the script is a schematic that grows tiresome.‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 6, 2007
94% My Winnipeg (2007) It is a bygone hallucinatory dream location steeped in melodrama, which reveals contemporary truths as it embraces a ferocious fictional construct.‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 6, 2007
79% Scream (1996) The pic's chills are top-notch, but its underlying mockish tone won't please die-hard fans.‐ Variety
Posted Sep 21, 2007

Posted Apr 23, 2007
82% Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm (1993) While the script and pedigree of actors are commendable, the craft level is too close to the small-screen offering to get audiences into theaters.‐ Variety
Posted Apr 16, 2007
75% Cool Runnings (1993) The offbeat, fact-based saga is enlivened by the perfect balance of humor, emotion and insight and should be one of the true sleepers among fall box office releases.‐ Variety
Posted Mar 21, 2007
6% Solo (1996) The best one can say for Norberto Barba is that he directs a slick piece of goods. But no amount of fast cutting or tempo can disguise the material's simplistic, thoughtless nature.‐ Variety
Posted Aug 5, 2006
2/5 79% Open Range (2003) I started a thinkin how cum Kevin Costner couldn't a made a better movie. I shor nuff liked his Dances with Wolves but he jes moseyed round a lot more in this piture. Why there twern't a lot o action.‐ Movie City News

3.5/5 77% Seabiscuit (2003) (Seabiscuit) is a mixed feedbag of hackneyed cliche and inspired drama. In a curious way it has a pace and momentum not unlike a racehorse. It is a slow starter with a pecular gait that rapidly builds up speed and finishes a winner by a nose at the wire.‐ Movie City News
Posted Jul 25, 2003
3.9/5 94% Dirty Pretty Things (2003) the amazing thing about Dirty Pretty Things is that the heart beating within this social commentary/thriller is that of a love story. The myriad reasons that prevent Odwe and Senay from even considering a romantic relationship are considerable, even daunt‐ Movie City News

1.5/5 23% Bad Boys II (2003) The film is perhaps the most cynical excuse to capitalize on past success as anything on offer this summer. It is a series of action set pieces loosely connected by the presence of its movie bad boys who bicker like an old couplr all the way to the bank.‐ Movie City News

61% Hulk (2003) Ang Lee and his creative associates are involved in an experiment of cinematic alchemy -- turning the equivalent of lead into gold.‐ Movie City Geek

77% L'Auberge Espagnole (2003) While there's considerable craft, artistry and entertainment in the film, the enterprise is a bit too chaotic and unfocused to wield much of a punch.‐ Movie City News

92% The Man on the Train (L'homme du train) (2003) A beautifully rendered character piece that's so precisely and complexly engineered to convey its simplicity.‐ Movie City News
