Posted Dec 2, 2004
2.5/4 The Forgotten (2004) Judith Egerton The Forgotten is kinetic enough to keep you in your seat, but it slips from memory quickly. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2004
3/4 I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2003) Judith Egerton In the end, it is the complex aura surrounding Owen's character...that stay with the viewer long after the threads of the story have unraveled in one's mind. EDIT

3/4 Collateral (2004) Judith Egerton Nice guy Tom Cruise is bad - very bad - in Michael Mann's new movie, Collateral. And that's good. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2004
3.5/4 The Manchurian Candidate (2004) Judith Egerton With Meryl Streep in an updated version of the Angela Lansbury role, Denzel Washington in the Frank Sinatra part...the movie is a virtual master class of acting. EDIT

5/5 () Judith Egerton Better than the movie EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2004
3/4 De-Lovely (2004) Judith Egerton Kevin Kline's acting and musical talent combine to make Irwin Winkler's beautiful yet flawed De-Lovely a movie to see. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2004
2/4 Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) Judith Egerton I hoped for far more laughs, a sharper edge to the humor and a comedy that would attain the rank of other SNL alum works such as Caddyshack. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2004
3/4 Hilary and Jackie (1998) Judith Egerton No, it's not a movie about two first ladies married to adulterous husbands. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2004
3/4 Affliction (1997) Judith Egerton One wonders why Dafoe is even in the movie. But Nolte is, and that's what enriches Schrader's bleak drama. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2004
2/4 In Dreams (1999) Judith Egerton Someday, Annette Bening is going to star in a movie that's as interesting and powerful as she can be as an actress. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2004
3/4 The General (1998) Judith Egerton Neither Boorman's cinematic expertise nor Gleeson's canny performance is enough to make us care about Cahill's destruction. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2004
4/4 The English Patient (1996) Judith Egerton It's Casablanca set amid the swirling Sahara sands of North Africa and the voluptuous hills of Tuscany. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
3/4 Unhook the Stars (1996) Judith Egerton Cassavetes' film reveals that he has a sharp eye for human nature. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
3/4 Tin Cup (1996) Judith Egerton Like other Shelton movies, it's dappled with interesting characters. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
2.5/4 Career Girls (1997) Judith Egerton More modest and less involving than Secrets & Lies. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
2.5/4 State of Seige (1972) Judith Egerton A political thriller with a cautionary message, but it doesn't carry out its mission. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
3.5/4 A Civil Action (1998) Judith Egerton A legal drama that doesn't follow the usual Hollywood-John Grisham formula. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2004
2.5/4 eXistenZ (1999) Judith Egerton Brave moviegoers and fans of writer-director David Cronenberg will find funny dialogue and grotesquely engrossing scenes in his latest sci-fi horror tale. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2.5/4 Mysteries of Egypt (1998) Judith Egerton It's a visually appealing but basic introduction to ancient Egyptian culture. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2.5/4 The Red Violin (1998) Judith Egerton It is disconcerting to see {Jackson}...after watching his exceptional performances as crazy criminals in two Quentin Tarantino movies. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3/4 Wild Wild West (1999) Judith Egerton I recommend you suspend any whiff of disbelief and enjoy Sonnenfeld's hammy sci-fi Western, set in the late 1860s. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3.5/4 The Eel (1997) Judith Egerton Imamura composed The Eel with an artist's eye and takes his time, so don't expect a fast-paced American-style film. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3.5/4 Music of the Heart (1999) Judith Egerton Doesn't revolve around a self-centered main character or possess the schmaltz of Mr. Holland's Opus. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3.5/4 Anna and the King (1999) Judith Egerton The third major screen version of the story, has much to recommend it. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2/4 Where the Heart Is (2000) Judith Egerton The script, based on a novel by Billie Lett, is sprinkled with phrases meant to be poignant and funny, but sound like repackaged cliches. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2.5/4 Dinosaur (2000) Judith Egerton The movie follows a rather dull tale similar to the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3.5/4 Men of Honor (2000) Judith Egerton The decision to shift some of the attention to De Niro's character...dilutes the power of Brashear's fascinating life story. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
3/4 The Cat's Meow (2001) Judith Egerton Dunst gives us a bright, bubbly woman with comedic talent. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2004
2.5/4 Down in the Delta (1998) Judith Egerton Employs too many redundant, stagy flashbacks to tell the story of Loretta's ancestors. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 Cousin Bette (1998) Judith Egerton A revenge drama, with Lange's Bette pulling the strings. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2.5/4 Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) Judith Egerton The selfish pea brains who brought their bright-eyed infant to...this violent horror movie deserve a private, late-night visit from the uncompromising Michael Myers. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2/4 I Married a Strange Person (1997) Judith Egerton Newlyweds often discover that their mates have odd quirks once they begin living together, but in Plympton's movie, that truth is taken to cartoon extreme. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 Your Friends & Neighbors (1998) Judith Egerton It's both a daring composition and a repelling look at gender warfare. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2/4 54 (1998) Judith Egerton One can only hope "54" will hammer the final nail in disco's coffin. It's music that I don't want stayin' alive. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
4/4 The Sweet Hereafter (1997) Judith Egerton Based on Russell Banks' tragic novel about a town grieving for 14 children killed in a bus crash, easily makes my list of top 1997 films. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 The Crucible (1996) Judith Egerton Arthur Miller's story of hysteria, persecution and social injustice, is classy and powerful with some marvelous acting. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3.5/4 Michael Collins (1996) Judith Egerton A way to relate pivotal events to an audience who probably knows little about the Irish republic's creation. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 Multiplicity (1996) Judith Egerton It's a showcase for Keaton. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2/4 Inventing the Abbotts (1997) Judith Egerton In the end, it adds up to nothing more than a humorless, forgettable nostalgia piece with carefully re-created costumes and settings from the Eisenhower years. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
4/4 The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996) Judith Egerton The latest movie from the great director Milos Forman is a sensational, irreverent docudrama. And, as they say in the porno trade, it's adult entertainment. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 A Thousand Acres (1997) Judith Egerton Fans of Jane Smiley's enthralling Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Thousand Acres, will find the movie version disappointing. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 A Life Less Ordinary (1997) Judith Egerton Part fantasy-adventure, part musical, part nutty romance and part boy-girl crime spree. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2.5/4 Weed (1996) Judith Egerton A loopy visit to an extended pot party in Amsterdam where a bong is so large that it has to be lit with a blowtorch. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3.5/4 Kundun (1997) Judith Egerton Scorsese skillfully indulges his propensity for obsessive detail. Visually, the direction is varied and exhilarating EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2.5/4 The Matchmaker (1997) Judith Egerton There are two reasons to see "The Matchmaker" and neither involves the two characters at the center of this far-fetched romantic comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
2/4 Godzilla (1998) Judith Egerton If only one could fast-forward past the idiot characters to the parts where the creature nests in Madison Square Garden, crushes Fifth Avenue and chomps a taxicab. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
3/4 Space Cowboys (2000) Judith Egerton It's tempting to pin a derisive label like Geezers in Space on this comedy-drama, but its veteran stars...make Space Cowboys hard to dislike. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
4/4 Secrets & Lies (1996) Judith Egerton The characters are so painfully real it's more like watching a documentary than a made-up story. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2004
4/4 Breaking the Waves (1996) Judith Egerton Will introduce the experimental director to a wider American audience. EDIT
