Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 10% Woo (1998) As the film plods on, Woo's initial, slightly mysterious charm wilts from overexposure; the frantic antics fall flat and the whole contrived mess begins to feel increasingly obvious and boring. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 8, 2012
3/4 79% Office Space (1999) Even if it doesn't up live to its inspired beginning, Mike Judge scores something with all the marks of a workplace cult classic with his first big-screen, live-action outing. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Mar 12, 2010
3.5/4 76% Kundun (1997) Vigorously directed, sensual and hypnotic, Scorsese's film is a visually extraordinary meditation on ritual, nature and humanity. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 1, 2010
2.5/4 54% A Cool Dry Place (1998) Its heart is in the right place, but this sweet drama just doesn't build enough true drama from its slender premise. That said, it's not bad enough to merit the kind of stealth release its studio has imposed on it. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 4, 2009
1/4 7% Friends & Lovers (1999) This charmless ensemble comedy starts out amiably enough, but quickly succumbs to the triple handicap of poor direction, a badly written script and some alarmingly excessive performances. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 3, 2009
2.5/4 85% Wag the Dog (1997) Anyone who would be inherently interested in this kind of sendup is unlikely to be surprised by anything in this film -- overall it feels like a trifle, if an entertaining one. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Mar 30, 2009
2.5/4 86% As Good as It Gets (1997) The movie's too long, and the direction is sometimes slack -- but the script is crammed with withering ripostes, ably delivered by Nicholson and Hunt. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Sep 3, 2008
2.5/4 79% Without Limits (1998) Except for a few lapses, co-scriptwriters Kenny Moore and Towne allow Pre's aura to remain undisturbed by overdramatization and psychological speculation. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 5, 2008
1.5/4 22% Wrongfully Accused (1998) There's something tired and rotten about this Fugitive send-up right from the start. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 17, 2008
3/4 15% Dead Man on Campus (1998) Surpise, surprise! This college comedy is better than you'd expect. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 16, 2008
2/4 59% The Rugrats Movie (1998) Intermittently snappy and featuring slicker animation than its TV incarnation, this popular children's cartoon may satisfy its youngest fans, but it'll be a big snoozefest for the rest of the family. ‐ TV Guide
Posted May 20, 2008
1.5/4 47% Blues Brothers 2000 (1997) Endless scenes of pointless buffoonery and crashing cars. ‐ TV Guide
Posted May 18, 2008
1.5/4 11% A Night at the Roxbury (1998) It would take far better writing than Kattan, Ferrell and Steve Koren can muster to make it less than an ordeal. ‐ TV Guide
Posted May 18, 2008
3/4 72% Cop Land (1997) It sizzles toward an explosive and satisfying climax in which everything -- Stallone included -- fully bursts into life. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Apr 9, 2008
83% Waking Ned Devine (1998) Jones could have done worse than to fashion this slight entertainment, but it's also clear that he could do much better. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Mar 11, 2008
3.5/4 82% Late August, Early September (1999) Assayas avoids easy resolutions, and Ali Farka Toure's score reminds us that each year brings with it a possibility that one will change the cycle. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Mar 3, 2008
2/4 52% Two Girls and a Guy (1998) Built around a fearless performance by the protean Robert Downey Jr., this deliberately provocative story of deception and sexuality packs a punch that's undermined by the director's indulgence. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 12, 2008
2/4 75% Besieged (1999) Maddening on many fronts and strangely wordless, Bernardo Bertolucci's purported love story breaks no new ground. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 7, 2007
3/4 95% Eternity and a Day (1999) Thought poets were a dying species, did you? ‐ TV Guide
Posted Nov 15, 2007
2.5/4 78% Get Real (1999) Simon Shore's feature directing debut displays considerable confidence and aplomb. But his fairly hackneyed sense of storytelling seems to value accessibility above complexity, so don't expect any surprises. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 24, 2007
3.5/4 89% Rushmore (1998) Another quirky, hard-to-put-your-finger-on delight from the boys who brought us Bottle Rocket. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 18, 2007
3.5/5 92% Shakespeare in Love (1998) Henslowe may be onto something when he jokes that all audiences want is love and a bit with the dog, but this film delivers much more. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 5, 2007
1.5/4 4% The Mod Squad (1999) No one expects much from movie adaptations of TV shows but complete incoherence and boredom is a bit too much to bear. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 5, 2007
1.5/4 2% Baby Geniuses (1999) Formulaic and deeply unfunny. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 5, 2007
84% Pleasantville (1998) A glossy, high-concept Hollywood entertainment that uses special effects to awaken the senses rather than numb them!‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29% The Other Sister (1999) Warm-hearted but ultimately soft!‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22% Patch Adams (1998) Another assembly-line vehicle!‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40% Varsity Blues (1999) While there are some undeniable false notes, there's also quite a bit on screen that works.‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/5 92% A Bug's Life (1998) Technically astounding and unwaveringly bright film! ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/5 28% 200 Cigarettes (1999) Trifling to the max. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44% Stepmom (1998) The most impressive thing about it is that the actors manage to sound so earnest while mouthing the most shameless cliches imaginable!‐ TV Guide
