Shrek 2 (2004)
Once or twice a decade, a moment comes along that's so through-the-roof, rupture-your-hernia funny that it reaffirms my faith in comedy. 'Shrek 2' has several of those.

Troy (2004)
Maybe they found the text by Homer of Simpson rather than Homer of Asia Minor. Mmm … breastplates.

Van Helsing (2004)
Like every other filmmaker obsessed by the possibilities of CGI, Stephen Sommers forgets the golden rule: Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Mean Girls (2004)
Not as consistently funny as 'Heathers' or corrosive as 'Election,' but usually hilarious and occasionally chilling in its observations of 'Girl World.'

Envy (2004)
To use the obvious metaphor and equate 'Envy' to what Jack Black's miracle product is designed to clean up would be an insult to the canine digestive system.

Man on Fire (2004)
With every caption dancing across the screen to overstate the obvious, it plays like a feature-length PSA for thetruth.com - only this time, the drug is kidnapping.

The Punisher (2004)
Whoever first had the big idea of revisiting this material should be hung up by his Buster Browns and forced to watch the result -- then he'll know what 'punishment' means.

The Alamo (2004)
Hancock keeps what could have been a leaden behemoth accessible and engaging by drawing a bead on the personalities of the men who've loomed over history books, warts and all.

Before the opening credits had ended, I was counting down the minutes until I could get back to scraping old tile adhesive off my kitchen floor.

4/4
... the true star of this film is Eduardo Serra, who should have had the Oscar. Sweeping fantasy vistas are easy; creating a sensual feast through the camera's lens is hard.

Walking Tall (2004)
Why keep the 'Walking Tall' brand name at all? The juke-joint mama doesn't even take a bullet beneath her beehive this time around.

A remake as soulless as the hordes of undead that attack with maddening persistence.

... a mean, nasty, mostly laughless 104 minutes spent in dogged pursuit of an ironic cause that's as subtle as a falling gargoyle's head.

I cried 'Please, Lord, make it stop' at about the 90-minute mark -- long after I was numbed into a vegetative state by reheated spy cliches and sub-sophomoric bathroom jokes.

Something we seldom expect (or get) in the creatively bankrupt trend of adapting moldy old TV shows for the big screen: funny.

Twisted (2004)
With Ashley Judd above the title, no cookie-cutter contrivance is unaccounted for, no performance betraying the hint of any effort beyond showing up on the set.

... Nothing if not fluffy -- but oddly, egregiously offensive in ways far more insidious and damaging than merely wasting our time.

As Barrymore reminds us: Nothing beats a first kiss. Who would have thought an Adam Sandler vehicle in February would be the first romantic comedy in years to mean it?

Yet another sleeper hit becomes a cynical franchise. I guess 'Nappy-Cutz' wins after all.

Monster (2004)
Theron doesn't 'play' Wuornos as much as inhabit her - with pity, volcanic anger, confusion, occasional euphoria and mostly, impenetrable sadness.

Mountain Dew is not a suggestion for your choice of movie-time beverage. It's a mandate.

Melodramatically one-sided, but compelling -- and indelible just the same. El Presidente could benefit from a look.

...if this film were independently produced and released only on the art-house circuit critics would be knifing each other for a chance to praise its 'haunting power.'

Not a SCANDALOUS waste of cinematic resources -- just another limp, uninspired romantic comedy that wastes the talents of its stellar cast.

Big Fish (2003)
Tim Burton constructs an eye-popping, kaleidoscopic landscape of sound, fury and fantasy -- and remembers to make a movie to go with it.

Jack gets away with playing Jack ... because who else does it better? But it's Keaton who keeps their chemistry firing on all cylinders.

Stuck on You (2003)
When we know someone and love them -- that's when we can laugh at them. If Peter and Bobby Farrelly get it, anybody can.
