It's simply magical to watch as boys jumping on the bed suddenly take flight in Barrie's mind

too preposterous to be believed yet too concerned with historicity to work as an adventure tale.

the sequel gives us a heroine who acts like an idiot and then whines about the lack of men in her life.

has good intentions, but doesn't quite succeed because its animation style is a little too inadvertently creepy for a mainstream Christmas flick

Ray (2004)
features an outstanding performance by Jamie Foxx in the title role, luscious production design and of course, all of that great Ray Charles music.

I have no idea what writer/director David O. Russell was trying to accomplish with this messy but not-quite-a-disaster of a movie.

Saw (2004)
Sick as the story is, it's the visuals that give Saw it's visceral punch.

2/4
It sounds like a rather overt Christian message, but the film is actually more of a cautionary melodrama with religious sermons sprinkled in between the various scenes

The Grudge (2004)
even though the plot is a bit disjointed and the characters are underdrawn, the truly terrifying ghosts are more than worth the price of admission.

The whole outlandish situation is treated with typical English stoicism, leading to some wonderfully funny moments.

this is a thoroughly likable flick, one that will have even the most rhythmically challenged schlub leaving the theater with a bounce in his step and twinkle in his eye.

Taxi (2004)
Queen Latifah has charisma to burn, but not even she can rescue this silly little movie with its absurd plot and one-note characters

I'll stop short of calling it the greatest sports movie ever created, but it's certainly got to be up there in the top five.

Shark Tale (2004)
. . . more concerned with keeping the puns flowing than with actually telling a good story

3/4
Garden State (2004)
an auspicious film debut which features some quirky-yet-endearing performances, a killer soundtrack, and a screenplay far deeper than we should expect from a mere sitcom actor

2/4
it works as long as you don't have time to think about what's really going on. Unfortunately, the last act slows down to unravel the mystery and the whole film falls apart.

3/4
The film is beautiful to look at and fascinating to talk about, but the story is a bit stuck too much in the 1930s to really engage a modern audience.

Cellular (2004)
turns out to be an exciting thriller despite the fact that it's just a desperate woman talking on the phone to a random stranger

Wicker Park (2004)
a melancholy mess of a movie where attractive people act like idiots for a few hours, all the while performing as if they were in a murder mystery or a ghost story.

1/4
Paparazzi (2004)
a routine action thriller at best, one that hopes the audience will be so swept up by rage and revenge that they forget that the hero has become a criminal.

I don't know if I was laughing at [Napoleon] or with him, but I was certainly laughing during the movie.

1.5/4
I can appreciate a good B-movie as much as the next guy, but even by the very relaxed standards of B-moviedom, "Anacondas 2" is a rather sad affair.

Hero (2004)
that rarest of cinematic feats: a genre martial arts flick that also happens to be one of the most striking visual films I've ever seen

2/4
the special effects work on the film is so mediocre that the audience actually laughed at one moment that was intended to be terrifying. Demonic butterflies? Please.

Open Water (2004)
Kudos to writer/director Chris Kentis... He really doesn't utilize much shark footage, but he certainly knows how to space it out for maximum effect.

...much of the film is a rather pedestrian affair, but when the aliens and predators do finally show up and start fighting each other, it's pretty kick butt stuff.

There's no spark of life in the story; nothing that will charm kids and their parents.

Collateral (2004)
...a taut thrill ride that succeeds thanks to solid performances by Foxx and Cruise, and those ever-present Michael Mann visual touches.

The Village (2004)
Shyamalan is on the top of his game for the most part, it's just the inane ending that drops the film down into mediocrity.

Catwoman (2004)
Not even the sight of Halle Berry brandishing a whip while wearing a barely-there black leather catsuit is enough to excuse this campy exercise in bad filmmaking.

There are no original twists, no fun takes on the archetypal characters, no interesting visual style to make the movie pop.

I, Robot (2004)
'Lots of exciting action sequences, a charismatic hero, a few chuckles here and there and some top-drawer special effects work. The only thing it lacks is Isaac Asimov.

Two Brothers (2004)
Two Brothers features some amazing wildlife cinematography and those great, almost human performances by the thirty or so tigers that were used to make the film.

White Chicks (2004)
White Chicks isn't a bad film because the guys don't look convincing as women; it's a bad film because it's just not all that funny.

If Moore had narrowed his focus and spent time on his numerous assertions, this could have been a great film. As it stands now, Fahrenheit 9/11 is an unfocused mess.

Dodgeball works mainly because it's full of colorful characters who are a real hoot to watch as they stumble their way through the movie.

This latest film is a lot darker in tone, and thanks to the new director Alfonso Cuaron, it's also a great deal scarier.
