The Cooler (2003)

"The movie is a little underworld and a little romance, but neither story has a lot of impact. It could benefit from playing up the mysticism of Bernie's lack of luck." Fantastica Daily

Mona Lisa Smile (2003)

"A well written script can give a better slice of life depiction than a whole season of Rich Girls and The Simple Life. Interesting characters make it worthwhile." Fantastica Daily

Mystic River (2003)

"Eastwood's maturity is reflected in the story that doesn't back away from hard subjects and can admit that pain and remorse can mold a man's life." Fantastica Daily

Lost In Translation (2003)

"The film is poetically austere in dialogue but thoughtful. Like a walk on a spring day, Lost in Translation is not momentous but rather pleasantly freeing." Fantastica Daily

Chicago (2002)
