Posted Mar 16, 2004
2/5 14% It's All About Love (2004) Sadly, the movie's moral soon overwhelms the story, turning an initially intriguing thriller into a ponderous parable where the message is all too obvious and the medium is all too dull. ‐ BBC.com

Posted Sep 24, 2003

Posted Jul 4, 2003
2/5 61% Hulk (2003) A senseless story, jerk-along pace, and the gutless decision to stage two major set-pieces in the near-dark, which disguises deficiencies in the CGI because you can't see what the hell's going on. ‐ BBC.com
