'Tears of the Sun is great PR for United States foreign policy and its military. Colin Powell and Donald Rumsfeld could not have crafted a more pro-United States script, nor could they have hoped for a more valorous portrayal of its soldiers.'

The Recruit (2003)
'What keeps The Recruit from being a waste is good chemistry between Al Pacino and Colin Farrell. It is by no means a great film but not a half bad way to sepnd a couple of hours.'

Dreamcatcher (2003)
'This is such B-movie material, I'm surprised Roger Corman didn't direct.'

'We witness a disjointed, unfocused, unwieldy monster with only limited appeal and whose themes have been handled much more succinctly and artistically in previous films.'

Equilibrium (2002)
Equilibrium is what George Orwell might have imagined had today's mood-altering drug therapy been envisioned by chemists in 1949.

Solaris (2002)
Solaris does not reduce the complex dilemma it creates for itself down to a simple set of conditions solved by a simple set of rules.

Beautifully staged with bright vibrant scenery. It's Kelly at his dancing best.

B.A.P.S. (1997)
Apallingly bad. Robert Townsend's attempt at satirizing black culture is far off the mark.

Fascinating look at the whole culture behind college basketball recruiting. Very well structured and edited.

Ya gotta love seeing the first glimpse of Don Corleone here. A fun screen adaptation if not musically sound.

Jim Carrey is at his annoying worst here. His manic, over-the-top style doesn't mesh well with lockerroom humor.

Funny in a south side of Chicago neighborhood kind of way, but not much more than his stand-up act.

Beautifully filmed and acted with a pleasant, wry sense of humor about it. Mirand Richardson shows why she is one of our greatest living actresses.
