2.5/4
Bewitched (2005)
Bewitched has a lot of problems, but it also has enough hit-and-miss charm to please most summer movie audiences.

For a movie about a car that comes to life, this movie is surprisingly lifeless.

a meandering trip down memory lane punctuated with some really nice skateboarding sequences.

an hour and a half of bad child actors, non-stop cartoon special effects and another chance for kids to get excited about wearing those uncomfortable 3D glasses

Madagascar (2005)
this is an erratic and dull film-albeit one with a few really funny moments.

The Jedi faithful deserve far better than this.

2.5/4
a film that tries to be something special, but ultimately fails because of an over-padded script and too many poorly-cast actors.

one of the most uninspired and misconceived big-budget action flicks I've ever had to sit through.

House of Wax (2005)
The film does everything that teen horror flicks are supposed to do, but Hilton undermines it all by not even trying to act.

3/4
The film doesn't make much story sense at times, but it's a forgivable flaw as "Kung Fu Hustle" is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen in years

3/4
I'll go so far as to say that the new Amityville Horror is better than the original film -- a great example of just how effective genre filmmaking can be when it's done right.

a puff piece with the sole intention of glorifying Houston Rockets' center Yao Ming

Sahara (2005)
Has enough humor and adventure that I'm almost willing to overlook the preposterous plot

2/4
Beauty Shop (2005)
a nice enough story, just not funny or memorable enough to make it into a winner.

Fever Pitch (2005)
Hornby's tale of sports obsession has become yet another generic romantic comedy.

2/4
Bullock can still play the girl next door doing a pratfall with plenty of charm, but nowhere near enough grace to save this otherwise mediocre movie.

Ice Princess (2005)
Pity the poor father or the younger brother forced to tag along and watch this mediocre piece of marketing to the Cinderella set

3/4
The Ring Two (2005)
The film looses credibility at times, but there's no denying that some of the ghost scenes are truly frightening.

Robots (2005)

The Pacifier (2005)
Vin Diesel does the best he can, but even the most gifted comedian couldn't make this hackneyed screenplay work

3/4
Be Cool (2005)
doesn't capture much of what's really cool in Elmore Leonard's novel, but there's no denying that "Be Cool" provides some very funny, very entertaining moments.

2/4
Cursed (2005)
not quite edgy enough to be cool and it's certainly nowhere near scary enough for most horror fans

2/4
Constantine (2005)
While the tone stays faithful to Alan Moore's "Hellblazer" series, the film doesn't really work because Reeves is the wrong guy to play the title character.

Hitch (2005)
Will Smith and Kevin James keep the whole thing going thanks to the chemistry of their oddball pairing

1.5/4
Boogeyman (2005)
the entire cast seems to be on autopilot, and the behind-the-camera crew doesn't try any harder.

DeNiro's been in enough good films to recognize that this film is a steaming pile of garbage that no amount of great acting would ever be able to rescue.

4/4
Sideways (2004)
it succeeds thanks to a screenplay steeped in humanity and a director with a gift for making ordinary Joes into extraordinary movie heroes.

3.5/4
Hotel Rwanda (2004)
Solid acting, a shocking-because-it's-true screenplay and wisely simple direction make "Hotel Rwanda" into a movie that you won't soon forget.

4/4
a simple, unadorned story that just happens to touch on some big-issue themes usually left for Oscar-bait movies.

Coach Carter (2005)
a solid genre story, and Jackson makes all that much better by his mere presence.

When a movie's title is based on a crass pun, you shouldn't expect the bar to be too high

I've got to hand it to Wes Anderson. His films don't always work, but they are never boring.
Posted Dec 23, 2004

2.5/4
a rather pedestrian remake of a 1965 Jimmy Stewart movie-a movie that in all honesty wasn't really all that impressive to begin with
