Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2004
2.5/4 47% And Now Ladies & Gentlemen (2003) A would-be ribald comic film that never gets very funny, mated with a love story that never ignites, mixed in with what seems to be a tale of magic and fantasy that never quite admits its presence. - Globe and Mail EDIT

2/4 79% I Capture the Castle (2003) Beautifully filmed silliness, and fetchingly acted tweeness. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 44% XX/XY (2003) Rarely does a fine movie like this have so awkward a title. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2003
2/4 45% Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) [Lacks] the sparkle and inventiveness of the stories that inspired it. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2003
2.5/4 73% Together (He ni zai yi qi) (2003) If you're in the mood for tears and triumph, with a dash of exoticism, Together may well be the film for you. - Globe and Mail EDIT

2.5/4 43% Julie Walking Home (2002) It doesn't work, but Otto performs heroically, sustaining the character of Julie to the movie's final moments. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2003
2.5/4 50% The Safety of Objects (2001) It's a movie located in an interesting place, but without quite enough self-confidence really to inhabit it. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2003
1.5/4 17% Leaving Metropolis (2002) A dreadful movie. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2003

Read More | Posted May 30, 2003
2/4 No Score Yet Saved by the Belles (2003) If you're not a member of this subculture, or already interested in it, you may have a hard time adjusting to Saved by the Belles. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2003
3/4 33% The In-Laws (2003) The In-Laws is successful on the level of light comic entertainment. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2003
3.5/4 83% Swing (2002) Virtually the whole cast is amateur, but Gatlif knows how to get them to play lovely little vignette scenes. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 16, 2003
2/4 No Score Yet The Book of Eve (Histoire d'Ève) (2001) The novel, which alone of Beresford-Howe's works still has many readers and admirers, is not done justice by this film. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 16, 2003
2.5/4 60% Down With Love (2003) The inventiveness doesn't work. It's dragged down by Zellweger and McGregor's self-consciousness, as they mug and overact their way through a film whose style relies on lightness of touch. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 16, 2003
1.5/4 41% The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) Altogether a wasted opportunity from a Disney organization which grows more sclerotic by the minute. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted May 2, 2003
3/4 88% The Matrix (1999) For those who have been waiting for movies to catch up with the graphic possibilities of comic books, wait no longer: The Matrix is among us. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2003
2.5/4 56% La Turbulence des fluides (Chaos and Desire) (2002) Briand's first film, 2 Seconds, was a success. With Chaos and Desire she has overreached herself, but she is an ambitious artist and is moving in an intriguing direction. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2003
3/4 No Score Yet deadend.com (2002) It puts the viewer inside the world of three children who are banal for a compelling reason: They have never learned, or been taught, how to create meaning in their lives. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2003
3/4 7% Boat Trip (2003) In a week when travesties like the Gwyneth Paltrow stewardess movie remind us that almost nobody in Hollywood remembers what the hell a comedy is, Boat Trip's skill and modest ambition inspire nostalgic reverence. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2003
2/4 70% Piglet's Big Movie (2003) I suggest you get out the books, which for once can truly be said to be more spectacular than the movie. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2003
2/4 64% Willard (2003) Not very stylish and not very scary. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2003
2.5/4 57% Ayurveda: the Art of Being (2002) If Ayurveda can help us return to a sane regimen of eating, sleeping and stress-reducing contemplation, it is clearly a good thing. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2003
2/4 29% Punch (2002) This is a good premise, but written and acted in a fashion that rings false. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2003
1/4 57% The Guru (2002) There is hardly a funny line in the whole script, and director Mayer has no idea of what comic timing and delivery are all about. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2003
1/4 48% Final Destination 2 (2003) Final Destination 2 doesn't pretend to be anything other than a robotic repeat of the first film. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2003
3.5/4 97% To Be and to Have (Etre et Avoir) (2003) A film that is a portrait of grace in an imperfect world. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2003
3/4 11% National Security (2003) Without losing its comic rhythm for a moment, it is also a withering spoof of black victimism and the corrupting effect of racial solidarity on the American legal system. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2003
2.5/4 20% Just Married (2003) In the end, a few genuinely funny moments aside, the script is simply too predictable and unvarying to earn the viewer's loyalty. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2003
1/4 64% Evelyn (2002) It's a blarney bath from the word go, with unbearably winsome characters spinning out Irishisms by the yard. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2002
3/4 57% Corpus Callosum (2002) This 90-minute postmodern voyage was more diverting and thought-provoking than I'd expected it to be. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2002
3/4 69% Treasure Planet (2002) This concoction, so bizarre to the adult mind, is actually a charming triumph where its intended under-12 audience is concerned. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2002
4/4 60% The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky (2002) Just the labour involved in creating the layered richness of the imagery in this chiaroscuro of madness and light is astonishing. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2002
2/4 3% Half Past Dead (2002) A shoot-'em-up for cynical times. Its only asset is Seagal himself, and frankly, he's is getting a bit past it. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2002
3/4 72% Das Experiment (The Experiment) (2001) Probably it's more action film than anything else, but has enough insight to be of interest to serious filmgoers. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2002
2.5/4 26% Formula 51 (2002) A formula flick. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2002

Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2002
2/4 66% My Wife Is an Actress (2002) I found it slow, predictable and not very amusing. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2002
2/4 50% Suddenly Naked (2001) An awkward romantic comedy at best. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2002
2.5/4 54% The Transporter (2002) This is a film where there isn't the slightest doubt about the dramatic outcome. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2002
1/4 21% The Tuxedo (2002) Donovan ... squanders his main asset, Jackie Chan, and fumbles the vital action sequences. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2002
3/4 82% Barbershop (2002) The characters are engaging and the story has a bustling richness. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2002
3/4 82% Secret Ballot (2002) A beguiling, slow-moving parable about the collision of past and present on a remote seacoast in Iran. - Globe and Mail EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2002
3.5/4 86% 24 Hour Party People (2002) So energized by the subject that it overflows with inventiveness. - Globe and Mail EDIT
