Marvelously shot.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2
Wildly uneven!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3
Much of the humor is surprisingly sophisticated.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4
Breezily funny and entertaining!

5
Timecode (2000)
Some movies become milestones on the basis of quality, others, for being where they are when they are. Mike Figgis' Time Code is assured of qualifying in the second category.

6
Two hours' worth of painful stupidity, overt racism, and mind-battering noise and movement.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7
A crisp, suspenseful thriller!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8
The Watcher (2000)
The Watcher will have written itself in your head by your third handful of popcorn.

9
American Pie (1999)
10
Patch Adams (1998)
By the end of it, you may feel like tripping a stranger just to shake off the sticky-sweet residue.

38/100
Red Planet (2000)
A programmatic wash, suitable for the bottom half of a double bill, perhaps, if only we had such things anymore.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
12
In Too Deep (1999)
A gritty, well-acted urban drama with lots of humanity.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
13
Norton's first film is crisp, confident, and considerably more entertaining than it has any right to be.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
Superstar (1999)
Superstar is considerably less fun than a marathon of Star Search episodes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
15
October Sky (1999)
October Sky will go straight to the heart of any man who recalls looking up at the night sky as a boy and getting stars in his eyes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
I'd rather go on an all-Crisco diet than sit through Poor White Trash again.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
[Katzenberg] has plainly and wholly succumbed to the familiarity of his former employer's trademark formula.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
18
Despite its brazen politics, Mansfield Park never goes giddily amok as promised.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
Nurse Betty (2000)
[The actors'] nimble comic timing is hampered by truly ugly, amateurish production work.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

9/100
You've got a stinker that deserves to be locked away in the yuletide bomb shelter along with Scrooged and Santa Claus: The Movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

65/100
All these men ... have their mirthful moments.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Nothing in this movie makes much sense.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23
35/100
Not that I'm encouraging you to see the movie, you understand -- especially not when you could, for example, alternatively spend the evening tweezing your eyebrows with chopsticks.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
A ponderous stage adaptation that expends only the mildest effort to overcome its staginess.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
It demands to be seen, and though you might detest it, at least you'll exit the theater with the bruised sense of having seen something memorable.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
Romeo Must Die gets bogged down by looong stretches of substandard, preachy urban violence melodrama.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
Another hackneyed, high-concept action flick!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
The Bone Collector never comes close to the moral chill of Seven or even the step-by-step fascination generated by any number of HBO true-crime shows.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
Center Stage (2000)
Subpar Dawson's Creek in Danskins.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
30
Hicks determinedly neglects almost every other narrative element for the sake of atmosphere, a decision that robs the film of almost everything that made Guterson's story compelling.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
80/100
Bedazzled (2000)
A positively divine comedy.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
70 minutes of irritation.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33
Overheated, tedious!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Instinct (1999)
Hands-down worst movies of the season!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
Blade (1998)
Blade is one of those all-style, no-substance goth-mix adaptations that looks like The Crow, sounds like Spawn, and feels like Dark City.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
An endless barrage of action-packed fights sure to please all of Van Damme's diehard fans!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
A pale imitation of the original Winnie the Pooh Disney shorts of the '60s.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38
It might be the scariest movie ever made!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Bringing Out the Dead is stunning to look at; unfortunately, it's not terribly satisfying to watch.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
Get Carter (2000)
David McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
Hamlet (2000)
Almereyda never plays up the gimmickry at the expense of the performances.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
A vivid, emotional story.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
The Haunting (1999)
Shockingly lethargic!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
Music is a calculated but effective film.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
45
Already a prime candidate for 1999's worst!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
46
Woman on Top (2000)
Hopefully, somebody soon -- maybe Billy Bob Thornton with the upcoming All the Pretty Horses -- will give this girl a real movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
47
The Limey (1999)
Soderbergh might just be the best director of conversations in Hollywood.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48
85/100
Calle 54 (2001)
A must-see for avid fans and a welcome primer for nascent hip-shakers everywhere.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
49
Gladiator (2000)
The movie's production values are peerless.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
50
Tarzan (1999)
Tarzan is the cinematic equivalent of a Cajun McChicken sandwich - it's a little bit bold, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of McMovie.
