Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 29% Hollywood Homicide (2003) Shelton's attempts to tweak the buddy-cop formula are admirable -- an anti-chase chase scene involving a duck pond is hilarious -- but all too often he ends up embracing the very tropes he should be mocking.‐
Posted Jun 13, 2003
2.5/4 40% Rugrats Go Wild (2003) What Rugrats Go Wild! lacks in visual splendor it makes up for in comedic spunk.‐
Posted Jun 12, 2003
2.5/4 36% 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) For PG-13 popcorn-munching, it ain't half-bad.‐
Posted Jun 5, 2003
2/4 73% The Italian Job (2003) The new Italian Job takes a rollicking caper comedy and turns it into another dull thriller.‐
Posted May 29, 2003
3.5/4 99% Finding Nemo (2003) There may be plenty of fish in the sea (for now, anyway), but few films can manipulate you like Finding Nemo and have you not mind.‐
Posted May 29, 2003
2.5/4 49% Bruce Almighty (2003) A mixed bag.‐
Posted May 22, 2003
2.5/4 34% The In-Laws (2003) While many of these gags are spoiled by the trailer, what isn't on display is Brooks' ability to bust viewers' guts.‐
Posted May 22, 2003
3/4 73% The Matrix Reloaded (2003) By itself, The Matrix Reloaded is deeply flawed, but ultimately entertaining.‐
Posted May 14, 2003
3/4 47% City of Ghosts (2003) For the most part, Dillon has skillfully captured the sojourn of a stranger in a strange land.‐
Posted May 9, 2003
2/4 27% Daddy Day Care (2003) Though not nearly as noxious as the trailers would have you believe, Daddy still uses the same tired formula employed by The Kid and Kindergarten Cop.‐
Posted May 8, 2003
3/4 85% X2: X-Men United (2003) For most of its runtime, X2 has the indescribable x-factor of rollicking entertainment.‐
Posted May 1, 2003
2.5/4 69% Confidence (2003) Confidence may be a rerun, but it's a rerun worth watching.‐
Posted Apr 24, 2003
2.5/4 62% Identity (2003) For the first two thirds, Identity is effective, with director James Mangold delivering the appropriate jolts at the right times.‐
Posted Apr 24, 2003
2.5/4 31% Malibu's Most Wanted (2003) Little more than an extended sitcom. But it's a mostly funny sitcom that delivers a few sharp jabs at stereotypes in between laughs.‐
Posted Apr 17, 2003
1.5/4 23% Bulletproof Monk (2003) Monk's hero may be bulletproof, but all the magic in Tibet couldn't make this fiasco idiotproof.‐
Posted Apr 15, 2003
2/4 43% Anger Management (2003) While a welcome respite from the obnoxiousness of The Waterboy and Big Daddy, this sedate, reasonable Sandler is likely to frustrate his fans as much as did his dramatic turn in Punch-Drunk Love.‐
Posted Apr 10, 2003
3/4 65% Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (Kaubôi Bibappu: Tengoku no Tobira) (2003) Japanimation lovers should definitely catch this jam.‐
Posted Apr 4, 2003
2/4 43% Dysfunktional Family (2003) I didn't know Richard Pryor. Richard Pryor wasn't a friend of mine. But it's safe to say Eddie Griffin is no Richard Pryor.‐
Posted Apr 4, 2003
1.5/4 11% A Man Apart (2003) There's a rumor going around Hollywood that Diesel is only starring in blockbusters to collect enough cash to self-finance respectable independent projects. He better hurry up -- a few more Man Aparts, and nobody will be able to take him seriously.‐
Posted Apr 4, 2003
2/4 30% Head of State (2003) It's Rock's defanged political commentary that sinks it.‐
Posted Mar 27, 2003
2.5/4 40% The Core (2003) In the realm of guilty pleasures, few are guiltier than The Core.‐
Posted Mar 27, 2003
1.5/4 71% Piglet's Big Movie (2003) A far cry from the grand Pooh-bahs of Milne's day.‐
Posted Mar 21, 2003
2.5/4 30% Dreamcatcher (2003) Playing like a Roger Corman movie with a $100 million budget, the film relies on abundant gore and BOO!-style scares.‐
Posted Mar 20, 2003
2/4 64% Willard (2003) The plot might've made a decent Tales from the Crypt episode, but it's too obvious for a feature, causing the story to drag.‐
Posted Mar 13, 2003
2/4 29% The Hunted (2003) The script feels like it was penned by committee.‐
Posted Mar 13, 2003
2.5/4 33% Tears of the Sun (2003) Tears of the Sun should be condemned for cheapening the tragedy of West Africa's civil wars with a cheesy plot.‐
Posted Mar 6, 2003
2.5/4 25% Cradle 2 the Grave (2003) If you think that Cradle's plot sounds stupid, that's because it is.‐
Posted Feb 28, 2003
2/4 19% The Life of David Gale (2003) Teeters between compelling political commentary and sanctimonious claptrap like a drunk humanities professor chatting up a student at a faculty party.‐
Posted Feb 20, 2003
2/4 8% Gods and Generals (2003) Slowly drags viewers through a morass of cardboard caricatures, tedious dialogue, and stultifying skirmishes for over four hours, if you count the previews and intermission.‐
Posted Feb 20, 2003
2/4 44% Daredevil (2003) Cut so frantically you'd think the studio chiefs were holding a pistol to the editor's head, Daredevil's 96 minutes feel compressed, rushed, and jumbled.‐
Posted Feb 13, 2003
2/4 44% Deliver Us From Eva (2003) Hardwick seems to lose focus once Ray and Eva start falling in love, rampantly pilfering from other films.‐
Posted Feb 7, 2003
1.5/4 42% How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) How to lose a Guy in 10 Days More like How to Lose an Audience in 10 Minutes.‐
Posted Feb 6, 2003
3/4 66% Shanghai Knights (2003) Every bit as entertaining as the original.‐
Posted Feb 6, 2003
2/4 23% Biker Boyz (2003) A turgid actioner which sticks a fine cast atop a series of tricked-out motorcycles and sends them speeding down the expressway to mediocrity.‐
Posted Jan 30, 2003
2.5/4 57% The Guru (2002) It may not be orthodox Bollywood, but The Guru offers enough entertainment to earn the genre new fans, much like the hybrid Rush Hour turned the mainstream onto Hong Kong action.‐
Posted Jan 30, 2003
2.5/4 24% A Guy Thing (2003) The collective charms of both Lee and his love interest, Julia Stiles, make the film an often-pleasant distraction.‐
Posted Jan 17, 2003
2/4 20% Just Married (2003) Every time Murphy and Kutcher lift Married above the youth-comedy cesspit, Sam Harper's script inserts a gratuitous pratfall or gaseous gag, sending the whole thing spiralling downwards.‐
Posted Jan 10, 2003
0/4 0% Pinocchio (2002) The only way this Pinocchio can have a fairy-tale ending is if you leave in time to get your money back; then you might live happily ever after.‐
Posted Dec 27, 2002
3.5/4 96% Catch Me If You Can (2002) A true-blue delight.‐
Posted Dec 25, 2002
3.5/4 74% Gangs of New York (2002) It's a gruesome masterpiece, savage and majestic, unbearable and irresistible all at once.‐
Posted Dec 20, 2002
3.5/4 83% Narc (2002) A riveting profile of law enforcement, and a visceral, nasty journey into an urban Hades.‐
Posted Dec 19, 2002
3/4 78% 25th Hour (2003) A mature, thoughtful character study.‐
Posted Dec 19, 2002
4/4 95% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) Visually breathtaking, viscerally exciting, and dramatically moving, it's the very definition of epic adventure.‐
Posted Dec 17, 2002
2/4 22% The Hot Chick (2002) Despite this inconsistency and Schneider's one-note turn, the film does offer a few amusing moments. All too often, however, The Hot Chick feels like a cold fish.‐
Posted Dec 13, 2002
2.5/4 82% Drumline (2002) Although it bangs a very cliched drum at times, this crowd-pleaser's fresh dialogue, energetic music, and good-natured spunk are often infectious.‐
Posted Dec 13, 2002
3/4 80% War Photographer (2001) Both the film and Nachtwey's photos hammer home the grim reality of the world's gutters and battlefields, and will make you question what 'news' really is.‐
Posted Dec 5, 2002
2.5/4 21% Empire (2002) While not a classic by any standard, writer/director Franc Reyes' debut does paint an engaging portrait of the rise and fall of Vic Rosa.‐
Posted Dec 5, 2002
1.5/4 38% Equilibrium (2002) Wimmer's narrative sloppiness makes one think he's popped a few too many pills, since Equilibrium often feels like a sense offense itself.‐
Posted Dec 5, 2002
1/4 7% Extreme Ops (2002) The only thing extreme about this operation is its abilty to irritate.‐
Posted Nov 27, 2002
0/4 12% Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002) An unholy union between saccharine holiday sentiment, gross-out comedy, and fourth-rate animation.‐
