Gun Shy (2000)

Whipped (1999)

"Manages to move along rather nicely, despite a paper-thin premise and the overriding swagger of its cliched twenty-something males who think that they are God's gift to women." Film Journal International

The 13th Warrior (1999)

"Amounts to little more than a jumble of fire, horses and gory battle scenes. Amidst the constant flow of blood and mud and rain, you kind of feel dirty having just sat through it." Film Journal International

Jack Frost (1998)

"The entire second half of this film is almost unbearable and the first half isn't all that much better." Film Journal International

The Iron Giant (1999)

"It is chock-full of late-'50s sci-fi and pop culture and manages to capture the instilled paranoia of the time." Film Scouts

Held Up (2000)

"While an attempt to satirize the conventions of the hostage drama may have seemed an interesting notion, Held Up falls down on almost every count." Film Journal International

Superstar (1999)

"Just picture an SNL skit that doesn't know when to end, with no musical guest or at least a few commercials to break up the monotony, and you begin to get the idea." Film Journal International

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000)

Wing Commander (1999)

"A completely vapid, special-effects reel that would make a pretty nice screensaver for a computer, but as far as a 90-minute movie, it can lean somewhat towards the tedious." Film Journal International

Galaxy Quest (1999)

"When the movie works, it works well. However, Galaxy Quest treads dangerously close to becoming a parody of itself." Film Journal International
