Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 55% Cellular (2004) It's the classic Hitchcock 'wrong man' set-up, pulled off with wit, energy, and a healthy sense of the ridiculous.‐ BBC.com

3/5 95% Hero (2004) Visually spectacular but slight on story.‐ BBC.com

3/5 60% Wimbledon (2004) A join-the-dots romantic comedy, Wimbledon is worth watching for the magnetism of Paul Bettany.‐ BBC.com

5/5 91% The Shawshank Redemption (1994) Freeman, in particular, is exceptional. His performance is so unshowy it can easily go unnoticed, but it's the soul of Shawshank.‐ BBC.com

4/5 86% Collateral (2004) For Vincent's sharp-witted command of the cab and the echoes of The Third Man and Heat, Collateral is well worth targeting.‐ BBC.com

2/5 29% The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) Diesel is an imposing screen presence even when growling risible dialogue.‐ BBC.com

4/5 70% Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story (2004) Crude, daft and hilarious, Dodgeball is the best mainstream American comedy in years.‐ BBC.com

2/5 61% The Terminal (2004) Hanks is a likeable actor but rarely a subtle one. Viktor is another cutesy emotional heart-tugger in the Forrest Gump mould, all galumphing slapstick.‐ BBC.com

4/5 43% The Village (2004) Go in with a snide attitude, desperate to see The Sixth Sense director fail, and you'll leave with your prejudices underpinned. Better to embrace the experience and allow Shyamalan to show off his sublime gift for suspense.‐ BBC.com

2/5 9% Catwoman (2004) For about 40 minutes Catwoman is campy, trashy and fun. Then it's just trash: dull and depressingly empty.‐ BBC.com

4/5 58% I, Robot (2004) Whether there's anything substantial under the sheen and CGI of Alex Proyas' glistening future vision is debatable, but this enjoyable, engrossing picture is at least intelligently artificial.‐ BBC.com

4/5 81% The Bourne Supremacy (2004) A brisk, engrossing and intelligent thriller.‐ BBC.com

3/5 81% Hellboy (2004) A richly imaginative comicbook world is unveiled in Hellboy. If only the story was as strong.‐ BBC.com

2/5 31% King Arthur (2004) Quote not available.‐ BBC.com
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2004
2/5 19% Thunderbirds (2004) The Thunderbirds vehicles are impressively realised (even the tarted up, purist-bothering motor of Lady P looks grand), but this live action adaptation of Gerry Anderson's iconic creations lacks any soul.‐ BBC.com

4/5 95% Before Sunset (2004) The sequel no one needed is a surprise pleasure: witty, heartfelt, and true.‐ BBC.com

3/5 88% Shrek 2 (2004) An enjoyable if not especially imaginative sequel.‐ BBC.com

3/5 55% The Ladykillers (2004) It is neither terrible nor terrific, just... unnecessary.‐ BBC.com

4/5 84% Mean Girls (2004) Far from perfect, but it has brains beneath its glossy, vacuum-packed beauty.‐ BBC.com

3/5 45% The Day After Tomorrow (2004) There are enough jaw-to-floor moments to merit a goggle. Just not enough soul to be worth a rewatch.‐ BBC.com

3/5 23% Van Helsing (2004) Sure, it's daft, but it's also funny and exciting and kids will likely love it.‐ BBC.com

2/5 46% Secret Window (2004) Even Johnny Depp in quirk-overdrive can't save it, his slyly insincere performance eventually irritating as much as the sincerely stupid movie he's stuck in.‐ BBC.com

2/5 13% Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004) A creative no man's land: nothing ventured, nothing gained, nothing worth watching.‐ BBC.com

2/5 47% Hidalgo (2004) The stereotypes and blatant propaganda wouldn't irritate so much if the action itself wasn't so relentlessly dreary -- a desert of imagination, parched of original ideas.‐ BBC.com

3/5 82% Monster (2004) Theron offers a tender performance of fractured humanity, while Ricci -- in the less showy role -- also impresses.‐ BBC.com

3/5 44% 50 First Dates (2004) The spark between the stars and a surprisingly thoughtful screenplay ensures that, despite the odd gross-out misstep, this is a sweet, warm and funny romantic comedy.‐ BBC.com

Posted Mar 30, 2004
3/5 49% The Passion of the Christ (2004) A high-gloss exploitation picture, obsessed with the Death Jesus conquered, rather than the Life he gave -- and gives.‐ BBC.com
