Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
41% The Four Feathers (2002) Black Hawk Down by way of English imperialism, The Four Feathers delivers a compelling, if unsatisfactory, statement about the heroism of soldiering without condemning the diplomacy behind it. ‐ Ace Weekly (Lexington, KY)
Posted Oct 29, 2002
14% Ghost Ship (2002) Aside from its jarring opening sequence -- imagine The Love Boat crossed with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre -- Ghost Ship is a fairly rote ghoulish tale.‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 29, 2002
38% Sweet Home Alabama (2002) A romantic comedy, sans much of the comedy, this clunky Reese Witherspoon vehicle glows with the powerful allure of its shiny, irresistible young star but little else.‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
79% Punch-Drunk Love (2002) An unnerving and exhilarating romantic comedy that is neither romantic nor comic ... Punch Drunk Love is more revelatory than it is enjoyable.‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
90% Minority Report (2002) Making good on the best aspects of A.I., namely that stark and singular look of a future dominated but not quite overwhelmed by technology, Spielberg creates a stunning world where the past and present collide.‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
89% Spider-Man (2002) Sam Raimi is brilliant behind the camera and Spider-Man is a faithful and fun adaptation.‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 24, 2002
9% Stealing Harvard (2002) Seemingly a vehicle to showcase the Canadian's inane ramblings, Stealing Harvard is a smorgasbord of soliloquies about nothing delivered by the former Mr. Drew Barrymore. ‐ Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)
Posted Oct 23, 2002
3.5/5 66% Brown Sugar (2002) Manages to deliver the familiar boy-meets-girl story in a fresh way. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 11, 2002
3.5/5 81% Biggie and Tupac (2002) Broomfield seems to uncover a massive scoop here, revealing the multitude of people involved and the possible motivations behind the killings of his titular subjects. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2002
2/5 71% Virgil Bliss (2001) Shows moments of promise but ultimately succumbs to cliches and pat storytelling. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 14, 2002
3/5 86% Son of the Bride (2002) A somewhat disappointing and meandering saga. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 22, 2002
.5/5 0% State Property (2002) A dull, simple-minded and stereotypical tale of drugs, death and mind-numbing indifference on the inner-city streets. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 19, 2002
3/5 100% Yana's Friends (2001) Amusing with one unforgettable gag, Kaplun's film does a passable job of portraying the hardships endured by immigrants but is more notable for placing a light-hearted tale in a decidedly heavy time and place. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 23, 2001
20% History Lessons (2001) A one-note experience, more memorable for what it sets out to accomplish than what it actually does. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2001
59% Serendipity (2001) Like purchasing a CD of '80s super-hits off a late-night infomercial, watching Serendipity leaves you feeling somewhat violated but no less delighted at the trespass.‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 4, 2001
30% The Animal (2001) The one running joke in The Animal becomes familiar and predictable all too soon. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2001
10% What's the Worst That Could Happen? (2001) Answers its own eponymous question time and again by straddling the unamusing and the offensive. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2001
3.5/5 49% The Price of Milk (2001) The Price of Milk is a surprisingly winning fable of misguided love.‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Feb 14, 2001
3.5/5 76% Winter Sleepers (1997) Quote not available.‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/5 43% Center Stage (2000) Ultimately the story line here is as stupid as the final 'rock' ballet.‐ Filmcritic.com
