The action scenes might grab you, but there's a lot of talky downtime.

Coach Carter (2005)
The inspirational tale becomes just another by-the-numbers, cliché-ridden sports film.

You might say it's a case of too many ingredients spoiling the meal.

0/4
Aspires to be a highly stylized exploration of the mind of a serial killer, but it's nothing more than a gory, bloodsoaked snuff film, reveling in its own shock value as women are stabbed, strangled, raped and mutilated.

Amelio deals with the sensitive subject in a mature matter, refusing to descend into Hollywood-style schmaltz.

Fat Albert (2004)
A 10-minute cartoon expanded into an especially long and deadly after-school special.

The Woodsman (2004)
Given its genuinely disturbing subject matter, The Woodsman isn't what you would call a crowd pleaser, but it's definitely a work of art.

A sloppy and not-funny- enough sequel to Meet the Parents.

The falling chandelier, the signature moment of Phantom, has been moved from the end of the first act to the climax of the movie -- by which point non-devotees may need to be roused from their sleep by their companions.

3/4
Using Darger's own drawings (some of them animated by the filmmakers) and words, as well as interviews with the few people who came in contact with him, Yu presents a compelling, somewhat disturbing portrait of the artist.

The wonderful character actors in the original ... are succeeded by a fairly anonymous bunch.

The film is based on a true story, but that doesn't stop Amenabar from inventing certain characters and incidents to further his tearjerker agenda -- and court Oscar voters, who love this kind of high-toned schmaltz.

Follows the formula long ago established for movies of this ilk: the Big Crisis, followed by the Big Revelation, followed by the Big Showdown, followed by the Happy Ending.

The Aviator (2004)
The movie equivalent of a lavish coffee-table book, a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood from one of its foremost students.

1.5/4
Seems to be telling us a lot more about its star and director, Kevin Spacey, than its ostensible subject, Bobby Darin.

Spanglish (2004)
There is no shortage of zingers (mostly delivered by Evelyn), but the film lacks credibility.

An old-fashioned soaper that will please or not, depending on a viewer's tolerance for schmaltz.

Save your money and rent one of those old Hudson-Doris Day comedies instead.

The sweet script, crisp direction and a delightful performance by Leila Hatami, as the sad-eyed wife, should put Deserted Station on your must-see list.

While the subject of enforced priestly celibacy is important, here it is dealt with in a workman-like manner lacking vibrancy.

AmnesiA (2004)
While this twisty thriller sometimes borders on the pretentious, it's an auspicious debut by writer-director Martin Koolhoven.

Easy (2004)
There's much too much going on here, enough for an entire season of a TV sitcom, which Easy should have been in the first place.

The novelty of the setting and the Hollywood-style lavishness of the production go a long way toward justifying sitting through this very long movie.

[Jean-Luc Godard] may be nearly 74, but this three-part meditation, inspired by Dante's Inferno, is the work of someone with fresh, young ideas.
