Posted Jan 20, 2005

Posted Jan 6, 2005
4/5 The Incredibles (2004) Anthony Del Valle [It] goes beyond the pretty visuals and the slam-bam action to get us under the skin of a family trying hard to be something they're not. EDIT

Posted Dec 27, 2004
2/5 Meet the Fockers (2004) Anthony Del Valle You'd think after an eight-year absence from the screen, [Streisand would] return with more self-respect. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2004
3/5 The Phantom of the Opera (2004) Anthony Del Valle Its lavish production numbers sometimes capture the broad wink of musical comedy in a manner we don't see much anymore. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2004

Posted Dec 22, 2004

Posted Dec 16, 2004
3/5 Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) Anthony Del Valle [It's] not successful, but you can't quite dismiss it. It's full of imagery that stays with you. EDIT

Posted Nov 17, 2004
2/5 What the Bleep Do We Know!? (2004) Anthony Del Valle Movies are a visual medium, and not even four dimensions of Ph.D.s are going to change that. Not in this lifetime, anyway. EDIT

3/5 Seed of Chucky (2004) Anthony Del Valle The gore -- severed limbs, heads, testicles; you know, the usual stuff -- is kept in humorous overabundance. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2004
3/5 National Treasure (2004) Anthony Del Valle While it may be blasphemous to recommend 'National Treasure', it's probably not far off the mark to say [it will] keep fanatical fans of high-tech hesit movies content. EDIT

3/5 Being Julia (2004) Anthony Del Valle Annette Bening is as complete a reason for going to a movie as Jane Fonda was, or Marlon Brando. EDIT
