Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 74% Les Miserables (1998) [An] attractive, solid rendering of this popular classic. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2008
1.5/5 50% The Dogwalker (2002) Trying hard to be cute, The Dogwalker is instead as muddled as can be, tripping up the film as if its ankles were entwined in its own leash.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 25, 2006
3/5 97% Autumn Spring (2003) A rare salute to the possibilities of life waiting to be lived. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 27, 2003
2/5 78% 25th Hour (2003) Just exactly what the point is to The 25th Hour remains unclear, despite being based on a well-received first novel, played-out by an assortment of seasoned performers and led by a director unafraid of risks. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 20, 2002
2.5/5 46% Food of Love (2003) Despite Juliet Stevenon's attempt to bring cohesion to Pamela's emotional roller coaster life, it is not enough to give the film the substance it so desperately needs. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 16, 2002
2.5/5 67% Interview with the Assassin (2002) An achingly enthralling premise, the film is hindered by uneven dialogue and plot lapses. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 8, 2002
3.5/5 62% Etoiles: Dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet (2002) Part of the draw of dance is the impossibility to define its particular joy. Tavernier's film conveys a large element of its appeal -- and more. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 8, 2002
2/5 5% Swept Away (2002) Shallow and inconsequential, despite some pretty scenery. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 13, 2002
2.5/5 38% She Gets What She Wants (2005) The script falls back on too many tried-and-true shenanigans that hardly distinguish it from the next teen comedy. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 4, 2002
2.5/5 50% What to Do in Case of Fire (Was tun, wenn's brennt?) (2001) With recent tensions rekindled by the Kathleen Soliah trial and the upcoming trial of SLA members Emily and William Harris, not to mention Sept. 11, its difficult these days to appreciate Fire's bright side. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 19, 2002
56% Hamlet (2000) Despite this Hamlet's faithfulness to the text, there's more mope than melancholy to star Ethan Hawke, and the film's aspirations toward the cutting edge grow wearying.‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jul 12, 2002
85% Crna macka, beli macor (Black Cat, White Cat) (1999) This latest from writer-director Emir Kusturica eventually grows on one not through its relentless laughs, but by its unexpected sentiment about romance and friendship. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2.5/5 52% Bounce (2000) Clearly wants to be a compelling, ambiguous work, but sacrifices its integrity for a more palatable date-movie tone. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jun 5, 2002
86% The Parent Trap (1998) A delightful remake hits the screen that is every bit as fun and entertaining as the Hayley Mills original ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2/5 3% Bless the Child (2000) A better script or stronger direction might have helped, but without either, this one goes to the Devil. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2.5/5 71% Return to Paradise (1998) Vaughn labors mightily under the obviousness of the script, while managing to reveal a fragile but profound fear of being an aging frat boy who longs to realize a finer, better self, only to be petrified that quality isn't within him. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3.5/5 78% Keep the River on Your Right (2000) An engaging testimony to the courage of one man's quest into the unknown. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
3.5/5 85% The Other Conquest (2007) An impressive, beautifully visual film. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
1.5/5 13% Hush (1998) Only Nina Foch, as the wheelchair bound granny hidden away among nuns, shows any flair for taking this into the campy domain in which it might have flourished. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2/5 39% Sex with Strangers (2002) An empty, purposeless exercise. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 3, 2002
2.5/5 76% Panic Room (2002) For a film that feels suspiciously like an early summer release, Panic Room pushes just enough of the right buttons. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2002
32% Charlotte Gray (2002) Compellingly depicts the hazards faced by ordinary people when hell breaks loose. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jan 31, 2002
52% The Mothman Prophecies (2002) Somewhat heavy-handed with stock 'boo!' tactics, Mothman's unnerving story nevertheless generates a legitimate creepy air that will have viewers peering over their shoulders apprehensively as they leave the theatre. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 24, 2002
74% Behind the Sun (2001) A tragedy shot through with moments of blinding brilliance. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2001
77% Burnt Money (2001) Smolders and sweats amidst some sensational violence and fiery sex. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 8, 2001
43% The Monkey's Mask (2001) Has very little mystery and barely a spark of eroticism. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 27, 2001
64% O (2001) Nelson and Kaaya's creativity and their smart young cast confirm the Bard's amazing ability to remain timelessly pertinent and refreshingly entertaining. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 15, 2001
11% Bride of the Wind (2001) Disappointingly flat and frustratingly circumscribed, despite a valiant lead performance and eye-catching period settings. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Jun 8, 2001
48% Russian Doll (2001) Fails to get beyond the been-there, seen-that, prompting not much more than a few empathetic smiles. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 7, 2001
15% The Trumpet of the Swan (2001) Shallowness of characterization and unmemorable songs. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 14, 2001
87% Calle 54 (2001) Anyone seeing this happily contagious film will just have to have a copy. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 11, 2001
92% Memento (2000) Pearce ... handles the demands of playing a frantic empty slate brilliantly. ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Apr 19, 2001
13% The Body (2001) Quote not available. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 16, 2001
88% Roozi ke zan shodam (The Day I Became a Woman) (2001) Both hypnotic in its imagery and frustrating in its limitations. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 6, 2001
49% The Price of Milk (2001) Enchants with its eccentric, wandering chronicle of a young couple's romantic struggles and the inexplicable magic and mysticism that enfolds them. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 2, 2001
2.5/5 88% The Thief (Vor) (Вор) (1997) The film falls short as a romance, however, never achieving the depths for which writer-director Chukhrai clearly strives. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
