Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 93% Saving Private Ryan (1998) Spielberg's latest masterwork, pairing America's director with '90s Everyman Tom Hanks, makes a natural companion piece to his similarly disturbing Schindler's List.‐ Orlando Weekly

4.5/5 94% The Truman Show (1998) Director Peter Weir has created a strikingly subversive piece of information-age paranoia as visionary as anything Hollywood might manufacture this summer, or this decade.‐ Orlando Weekly

17% Wild Wild West (1999) Wild Wild West might once have had aspirations of becoming a grand Hollywood entertainment. Along the way, though, it turned into something far more routine, a slick and predictable piece of moviemaking that's ultimately routine and humdrum.‐ Orlando Weekly

3/5 38% Armageddon (1998) Armageddon -- slick, overblown and formulaic to its core -- nevertheless amounts to this season's closest screen equivalent to an apocalyptic thrill ride.‐ Orlando Weekly

73% Iron Man 2 (2010) Frantic, place-holding sequel? Check. Third installment guaranteed? Check.‐ Las Vegas CityLife

60% The Cars That Ate Paris (1974) It's not frightening, funny or even very thoughtful, more an offbeat curiosity than a particular sign of Weir's career to come.‐ PopMatters

1/5 4% Serving Sara (2002) It's a glorified sitcom, and a long, unfunny one at that.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 29, 2002
2/5 3% Deuces Wild (2002) A rather tired exercise in nostalgia.‐ Orlando Weekly

3.5/5 84% La Stanza del Figlio (The Son's Room) (2002) Often melancholy in tone, but it ends on a hopeful note that makes the emotionally charged trip worth the ride.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 21, 2002
75% Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius (2001) Has its own boyish charms.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2001
14% Black Knight (2001) Junger has simply overestimated his star's ability to compensate for Black Knight's overall failings.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2001
52% The Last Castle (2001) Viewers willing to buy the righteousness of the convicts' struggle may be thoroughly entertained by The Last Castle, but others will find themselves bored and a little put off by Lurie's unsubtle manipulations.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 18, 2001
46% Greenfingers (2001) We've been here before, and on more than one occasion.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 9, 2001
72% Training Day (2001) The movie is headed for a long, brutal and bloody payoff, one that may be too over-the-top for public consumption right about now.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 5, 2001
74% Joy Ride (2001) Satisfyingly spooky, if not entirely original.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 5, 2001
93% Apocalypse Now Redux (2001) Works both as grand spectacle and affecting human drama.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 20, 2001
21% The Glass House (2001) A competently paced, reasonably engrossing suburban thriller.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 14, 2001
30% Bubble Boy (2001) It's easily the worst movie of the year, the longest 84 minutes I've spent in a theater since the ill-fated Town & Country.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 24, 2001
8% Summer Catch (2001) The film is about as appealing as a sexually transmitted disease.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2001
52% American Pie 2 (2001) Packed with juvenile gags that would barely pass muster in a fifth-grade boys bathroom.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 9, 2001
84% The Others (2001) Amenabar, a master of suspenseful pacing, takes his time allowing the layers of perception to be removed.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 9, 2001
47% The Princess Diaries (2001) As slick, professional and bland as anything else Garry Marshall has directed in recent years, including 1999's Runaway Bride and The Other Sister. He doesn't do edgy.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 9, 2001
52% Rush Hour 2 (2001) Rush Hour II is built on the flimsiest of premises for a sequel.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 9, 2001
45% Planet of the Apes (2001) The new Planet, while certainly unable to duplicate the exuberance related to the discovery of a fascinating new world for those who've seen the original, is every bit as much fun as its predecessor.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 26, 2001
50% Jurassic Park III (2001) Is little more than a glorified slasher movie, albeit with nonhuman villains.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 20, 2001
73% The Score (2001) The results are admirable and entertaining if a little underwhelming; the cumulative star power isn't as impressive as might have been expected.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 12, 2001
86% Sexy Beast (2000) The thing absolutely resonates.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 6, 2001
71% Baby Boy (2001) Fans of Singleton's early work may be disappointed by the shrill, pointless exchanges, directionless nature and tidy conclusions of Baby Boy.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 29, 2001
73% A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) While not quite fulfilling, the trip is more than a little intoxicating.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 29, 2001
49% Atlantis - The Lost Empire (2001) It's a thing of beauty, watching the purple-hulled craft, its portals glowing orange, descend into the deep blue sea.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 14, 2001
26% Swordfish (2001) [Travolta] is back on his game again as Gabriel, a dark angel of destruction.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 8, 2001
10% What's the Worst That Could Happen? (2001) Surprisingly routine given its gathered talent.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 1, 2001
76% Moulin Rouge! (2001) A gloriously excessive, lavishly decorated failure.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 1, 2001
25% Pearl Harbor (2001) Pearl Harbor may be the most buttery popcorn movie of the hot season.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted May 24, 2001
81% The House of Mirth (2000) An entrancing, entirely satisfying piece of work.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 17, 2001
33% Angel Eyes (2001) More engrossing than it ought to be, given its slim story line and subdued moodiness.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 17, 2001
47% The Mummy Returns (2001) Seems to be constructed strictly as a go-for-broke cinematic thrill ride, a sort of demo for the latest and most spectacular visual effects available from Hollywood. It feels like overkill.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 3, 2001
13% Town & Country (2000) Every bit as disappointing as the advance word suggested.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2001
14% Driven (2001) Packed with abysmal dialogue, ham-fisted acting and laughable dramatic sequences straight out of the daytime soaps.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2001
33% One Night at McCool's (2001) Isn't nearly as clever as it sounds.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2001
80% Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) A pleasant romantic comedy, one that's certainly smarter and funnier than other examples of the genre, but hardly more memorable.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 12, 2001
28% Kingdom Come (2001) A messy, largely disappointing comedy-drama that's hopelessly torn between sincerity and outrageousness.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 11, 2001
14% Tomcats (2001) The lamest waste of time at the movies since See Spot Run.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 29, 2001
93% Spy Kids (2001) Given the film's likable performances and surprising, funny plot turns, viewers over the age of 12 may even approach the prospect of a sequel without the usual feeling of paralytic dread.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 29, 2001
9% Say It Isn't So (2001) A forgettable, unsatisfying comedy.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 22, 2001
32% 15 Minutes (2001) Contrived, didactic and packed with mindless violence.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 9, 2001
91% High Fidelity (2000) Flawed but smart comedy that works more often than it doesn't.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 6, 2001
55% The Mexican (2001) A whimsical but oddly unsatisfying piece of work.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 1, 2001
23% See Spot Run (2001) To explain the extreme, lingering stench of See Spot Run, it might be helpful to think of the movie itself as a dog.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 1, 2001
19% Monkeybone (2001) A silly, creaky, pop-art contraption that short-changes its serious philosophical and psychological underpinnings in favor of juvenile gags and gimmicks.‐ Orlando Weekly
