1.5/4
Constantine (2005)
A construct of heaven and hell that makes no sense, and changes when the plot requires it, is the least of its problems.

It's heavy on metaphor and voiceover, and weak on passion...

'The Wedding Date' doesn't exactly resurrect romantic comedy, but it proves there's still life in the genre.

Hotel Rwanda (2004)
It's all the more successful ... when we realize the sad truth that even a film this powerful isn't likely to change policy.

... a deeply felt (but never feel-good) father-daughter love story - and one of the most emotionally shattering films ever made.

Sideways (2004)
Neither a bang nor a whimper, but a warm, engaging dialogue about things that matter, in words that must be said.

A big-name, shoot 'em up shocker that achieves moments of intrigue amid spans of dullness.

'Are We There Yet?' is an eerily appropriate title for cinema's first authentic endurance test of 2005.

A smart, funny and refreshingly honest portrait of life in transition.

An awkward, overstuffed and occasionally painful delusion of grandeur ...

Elektra (2005)
When we can get the Lifetime Network on basic cable, and watch 'Alias' every Wednesday night for free, is this really necessary?

Coach Carter (2005)
He's the Good Coach; he knows these young men will lead good lives as long as he doesn't relent. Odd then, that the end doesn't seem like the result of a lot of hard work.

Spanglish (2004)
It's not fair to call 'Spanglish' a romance comedy, because at its core it's not about romance.

Closer (2004)
The camera spends much time on the actors' faces, whose spouting fumaroles manage to keep us interested by pace if not by virtue.

2.5/4
It defies a minimum critical standard: providing a framework for the jokes that at least makes sense.

Alexander (2004)
Whipping a battery at the screen would have accomplished nothing -- but I haven't ruled out a drive to LA so I can whip a battery at Oliver Stone.

It's a paragon of irony. A film based on a novel by courtroom aficionado John Grisham could use nothing more than the cold judiciousness of an egotistical trial lawyer.

2.5/4
Every bit as easygoing as its tropical island setting, and every bit as uninspired and uninspiring. Its pleasantness is its undoing.

A cartoon sponge and starfish playing fisticuffs with a marauding biker on David Hasselhoff's live-action backside is the most asinine image I've ever seen at the movies.

If Bridget Jones - a character incapable of learning from her mistakes - is a feminist role model, the movement's in for a setback.

Alfie (2004)
If there is such a thing as the postmodern relationship ... then director Charles Shyer has come maddeningly close to objectifying it with 'Alfie.'

If you rent a film with this title, you deserve whatever you get. Utter crapola.

A searing voyeur's peek at two of cinema's most audacious talents -- and megalomaniacs.

The Enforcer (1976)
A grim, gutsy, perversely satisfying shot of machismo from an era when action heroes were action heroes -- not a little boy's idea of an action hero.

4/4
Wild, wondrous and utterly disarming ... sweet but never saccharine, freed from the shackles of postmodern irony and cleverness for its own sake.

The Grudge (2004)
A visually interesting but fatally underwhelming horror film, cynically devised to avoid taxing the intellect of anyone on a third-grade reading level.

Saw (2004)
Clumsy, but crudely effective; liberating in its horrific imagery, but undone by the very same.

Ray (2004)
Foxx is essentially critic-proof ... Yet he's embroiled in an editing nightmare.

All these characters exist only so Affleck can prance around being impish and silly, exacting more of the damage he inflicted in last year's 'Gigli.'

A warm, honestly observed study of middle-age awakening becomes a vehicle to pull J.Lo's caboose.

Trey Parker may not advance the cause of freedom, but he'll go to it laughing, and that's worth several times my buck-o-five.

When Homer Simpson takes a can of Duff beer and crushes it against his thick skull, it's curious how the resulting object has all the dimension of one of Hilary Duff's roles.

Ladder 49 (2004)
... draws us steadily into its warm core with a sense these are real people, who might be sleeping or carousing down at the neighborhood firehouse.
