Brigham City (2001)
...takes some inappropriate religious liberties, but still manages to be downright creepy and suspenseful.

Signs (2002)
Aliens are simply the flashy Hollywood vehicle through which Shyamalan channels a more redeeming message.

Tadpole (2002)
Do we really need a 77-minute film to tell us exactly why a romantic relationship between a 15-year-old boy and a 40-year-old woman doesn't work?

Resurrection has the dubious distinction of being a really bad imitation of the really bad Blair Witch Project.

It's a dizzyingly entertaining thrill-ride, complete with a pleasantly surprising amount of humor and self-parody.

It's PG-13 rating forced directors to soft-peddle the carnage that giant spiders are capable of, and in the end it leaves you feeling less than satisfied.

One of the most snicker-worthy movies ever made. Great, great fun for the demented.

A childhood classic that any adult can thoroughly appreciate. Inspiring, hopeful, funny, and utterly charming. Possibly the best miniseries ever produced for television.

A disturbing and profound commentary on an age of supposed innocence and it's lack thereof.

Let me just put it this way: if you've ever had a baby, spent time with a baby, or been within 20 yards of a baby, you know why this is funny.

Something about this high-kickin,' ways-of-the-world broadway musical just doesn't translate well to the screen. And unless you're a Broadway actor or a wannabe Broadway actor, don't expect to enjoy it...or even understand it.

The Fugitive (1993)
Frenetically-paced, nail biting action. Rarely do an anti-hero (Tommy Lee Jones) and a hero (Ford) blend with such tense and charismatic perfection.

4/5
Few movies have reached this level of light comic perfection. It's the perfect blend of the novelty of the 1950's and the comic angst of adolescence.

Positively delightful family tale in the tradition of "Anne of Green Gables." Great, uplifting fun for everyone. .

Big (1988)
Hard to imagine Tom Hanks being anything less than Oscar Caliber, isn't it? But his performance as a young boy trapped in a man's body is endearingly funny.

Just exactly like every other Ernest movie you've ever seen. And yet, Varney's innocent playfulness is somehow oddly appealing.

A truly compelling portrait of a washed-up child star; even more compelling is the story of the peripheral people who suffer because of the misery of a washed-up child star.

Elicits a brand of fright that can only be experienced in childhood nightmares. It's the ultimate adult rendition of a child's worst fears.

Its title implies that it's something you might watch for its campy comic value. But it's flat-out nightmarish.

Bizarre and campy. And what's funnier than sight gags involving dead bodies waterskiing?

Classic Sellers. Hilarious from beginning to end; but only if you watch it drunk or at 3 AM

Harmless enough, but so condescendingly saccharine, you might gag on it.

Hopefully, this is the death-knell for Austin Powers, who went just a little too far this time.

It's bright, pristine style and bold colors make it as much fun as reading an oversized picture book before bedtime.

Some say this movie lacks character development...but I'd like to know exactly how you develop a character who doesn't know who he is.

Pitches itself as a female-empowering film, then reduces the gender to southern belle brawls and smashed alcohol bottles as a way to deal with problems.

Credit is to be given to Shakespeare for creating a plot so heavy that it gives weight even to a labored teen drama.

Human Nature (2002)
What Kaufman has here is a brilliant, funny, painfully human, and delightfully creative social statement.

Showtime (2002)
Showtime is one of the hapless victims of the arrogant "if we put together a wry white man and a chatty black man and give them guns, the movie will be funny" syndrome.

It doesn't take itself too seriously like some of its brooding, maudlin peers.

The film comes off uncannily like the book; the scenes are exactly as you would imagine them. This, however, probably says more about the writing abilities of Rowling as an author than Columbus as a director.
