War of the Worlds (2005) D.K. Holm WotW is a great film and entertainment that can be taken seriously; Shyamalan and Emmerich must be quietly shaking their fists, realizing he still does it better. EDIT

Posted Feb 8, 2005
0/4 A Guy Thing (2003) Michael Dequina I can't imagine this painfully unfunny and often boring movie being a 'thing' for guys or gals. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2005
3/4 Daredevil (2003) Michael Dequina A faithful translation of the character and one of his more memorable tales on the page; it satisfies as an adventure and as a more intimate story. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2005
0/4 Phantoms (1998) Michael Dequina Quickly degenerates from X-Files to Baywatch Nights once the culprit is ultimately revealed. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2005

Posted Nov 5, 2004
Garden State (2004) D.K. Holm Peter Saarsgard's role in Garden State is one of the main reasons to see the film. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2004

Posted Oct 29, 2004
The Day After Tomorrow (2004) D.K. Holm The Day After Tomorrow is enjoyable in its junky way. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2004
The Saddest Music in the World (2003) D.K. Holm If I were to recommend one work to someone who had never seen a Maddin movie it would be Saddest Music. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2004

Posted Apr 25, 2004
13 Going on 30 (2004) D.K. Holm The film is mildly diverting, with Garner doing a good pass at being a 13-year-old in an adult's body. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2004

Posted Mar 12, 2004
Twisted (2004) D.K. Holm Twisted's tale could have done with a little bit of Joe Eszterhas flamboyance. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2004

Posted Feb 19, 2004
Against the Ropes (2004) D.K. Holm The horror of Against the Ropes is that a screenwriter had a real person in front of her with an interesting, complicated story yet deemed her not "cinematic" enough. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2004
Eurotrip (2004) D.K. Holm You come out of Eurotrip feeling Euro trashed, wandering aimlessly in a haze that is a blend of awe and incredulity and profound depression EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2004
Monster (2003) D.K. Holm Monster takes the viewer into the white trash world of truck stops and biker bars and makes those people real. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2004

Posted Nov 5, 2003
