You could pass on both Scooby Doo films unless you really have nothing else to do one day. And I mean nothing.

3/4
A film with two opposite interpretations to its title -- figuratively sad, literally joyful.

Saved! (2004)
Saved! could have been a challenging but affirming movie about the evangelical subculture -- if handled with the same love, acceptance and tolerance it preaches.

Saint Ralph (2005)
For the jaded moviegoer, here's a little film that just might restore your faith -- in movies and a whole lot more.

Sahara (2005)
Vapid, lengthy, and mostly lifeless -- kind of like the desert it's named for.

Rumor Has It (2005)
The movie shines when allowing the characters to just exist in their world together, without the forced and tired romantic comedy plot weighing on them.

A technical mess. The final version looks like an unfinished cut.

Rock School (2005)
Watching the students band together to rock -- and the faces of the audience and participants when they realize what these kids are capable of -- is a joy.

Robots (2005)
A fun ride with plenty of laughs, excitement and touching moments about living out your dreams no matter your make, model or build.

1.5/4
Just because a film is about the undead, that doesn't mean the film itself has to feel like it was made by the undead or for the undead.

Rent (2005)
For all the big themes Rent deals with -- love, death, injustice, community -- it still seems a bit superficial

Ray (2004)
The directing is sure-handed, the script intelligent, and the acting strong, especially the amazing performance from Foxx.

Racing Stripes never pulls ahead of the pack, but it's good for a few laps around the track.

House of D (2004)
House of D is a delightful coming of age drama/comedy that deals with weighty matters of the soul.

Hitch (2005)
Fans of movies like The Wedding Planner and You've Got Mail looking for a charming date movie with lots of laughs will fall in love with Hitch.

This film will not do much to restore Disney's fortunes. Lohan does seem to want to grow up . . . but she pretty much sleepwalks through this film.

3/4
This new story starts off as just another adventure, more or less, but by the end, the situation faced by its protagonists has become much darker, and much more dire.

A treat for soccer fans who have yet to see their favorite game given its due on the big screen. This won't be a classic soccer movie, but it's a start.

A charming and dramatic tearjerker that's sweet without resorting to syrup.

The problem with Fahrenheit 9/11 is not that it is one-sided, per se; it is that Moore barely acknowledges there even is another side.

2/4
Apocalypse (2004)
The final chapter in The Bible Collection, a series of films that, stylistically, has been all over the map. With this, the series ends not with a bang, but a whimper.

Proof (2005)
As a story about personal and family dysfunction, and about coming to terms with life's uncertainties, Proof isn't bad.

The real reason to see this film is the addition of the musical numbers -- catchy and clever songs, written in the style of classic 1950s Broadway musicals.

This Prize Winner is a winner for its smart portrayal of a resourceful woman who loved her family, loved words, and loved life.

The larger message -- that you should marry for the right reasons only when you're ready -- is one everyone can applaud.

Prime (2005)
Ironically, this therapeutic romantic comedy ultimately suffers from too many unexplored issues.

Luminous visuals, subtle thematic statements, and fine acting. A lovely period piece that surely will stand the test of time.

Perhaps it's time to admit that The Pink Panther series is ready for permanent retirement.

The Perfect Man, starring Hilary Duff, isn't very good. The problem is how to critique it without taking the obvious cheap shots at its likable but over-exposed young star.

2.5/4
By giving us the feeling of experiencing Jesus' thoughts, and by making us privy to his prayers, The Passion draws us toward Christ's full humanity like no film before.

Paradise Now (2005)
Abu-Assad does a good job of building tension and showing some of the complexities within Palestinian culture. He has, as they say, put a human face on the Palestinians.

Osama (2004)
Great films like Osama, thoughtfully considered, give us the ability to withhold blanket judgments and come that much closer to the truth.

Open Water (2004)
Kentis and Lau have labored to make an almost documentary-style film. It's meant to make us feel like we are really there, and to a large extent it succeeds.

Oliver Twist (2005)
Polanski's film is not a bad adaptation, and it may be a fine way to introduce children to the classic story. But it is not exactly a definitive version of that story.

Modern anti-heroes. Criminals with heart. And these guys are stinkin' funny.

The Notebook (2004)
A thoughtful, emotionally rich film in which we see that great love, like deep faith, is forged on doubt, trials, and hardships. Only then does it deliver its deepest rewards.

Though tough and heavy-handed at times, North Country is engaging -- not one of those films about an important subject matter that you feel you should watch.

Nine Lives (2005)
Nine Lives had me tense, engaged, sometimes disgusted, sometimes moved, and always interested. Garcia is an ingenious and eloquent storyteller.
