Handsome but coldly uninvolving and pretentious.

Has a promising start but soon becomes preachy and melodramatic.

Magnificent if overlong.

3/4
Shot for practically nothing by first-time director David Barker, it delivers more bang for its minimal bucks than many a Hollywood blockbuster does for its multimillions.

An astonishingly intimate look at the disconnect between the hard-partying image that earned the band the nickname Alcohollica and the behind-the-scenes reality.

Swing (2004)
A slight, silly musical fantasy with two left feet.

Sleepover (2004)
If ever a movie could be charged with imperiling the morals of a minor, it's probably Sleepover.

2/4
Ferrell is funny spouting his weird stream-of-consciousness rants, but too often the plot leaves him hanging and he resorts to just Yelling Really Loud.

De-Lovely (2004)
De-Lovely twinkles and glows, but all the surface razzle-dazzle fails to mask the emptiness at its core.

3/4
Credit the disarming cast, especially Oshri Cohen as the boy and Arie Ellias as his eccentric grandfather. They help turn what could be a standard comedy into a life-affirming, enjoyable one.

The Clearing (2004)
It all adds up to an acute character study -- but as a thriller, it's too cerebral to quicken the pulse.

2/4
Watching this film from veteran commercial director and cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg is like being subjected to an endless ad for Coke or insurance.

4/4
It tells of a love affair so heady it generates goose bumps, yet the story unfolds with such unfailing honesty that its characters become people we know, their actions and words a reflection of our own experiences.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

2.5/4
The film's plot, themes and dialogue are markedly less inspired and original than its imagery.

Haneke's work is dark, visually and intellectually.

The Notebook (2004)
Well worth the risk of diabetic shock for the sake of superb acting that transcends its teary milieu.

Two Brothers (2004)
You don't have to be a cat-lover to fall in love with the cuddly young tigers who star in Two Brother.

Ghostlight (2004)
A bizarre and campily amusing 'tribute.'

White Chicks (2004)
A series of skits clumsily assembled into a sometimes unintelligible narrative.

3/4
A quietly persuasive and very timely documentary.

2/4
Contains little that is particularly new or compelling, save an emotional interview with Whitewater principal Susan McDougal.

2/4
A ho-hum, meandering road movie, albeit with an extremely cool soundtrack.
Posted Jun 18, 2004

An atmospheric but sluggish and needlessly confusing British contemporary film noir that may indeed leave some audience members struggling to stay awake.

The Terminal (2004)
A gentle alternative to noisy kid-oriented action flicks, raucous comedies and the agitprop of Fahrenheit 9/11.
Posted Jun 18, 2004

1.5/4
Reeks of desperation from the start, resorting way too often to the Funniest Home Videos-style spectacle of people getting hit in the crotch with red rubber balls.
Posted Jun 18, 2004

2/4
No more than a TV sitcom stretched to feature length. All that's missing is the laugh track.

This $110-million fiasco is the sort of movie that gives family entertainment a bad name.

A little movie with a lot of heart and a lot of laughs.

There's little that's particularly dramatic or funny for the outsider in this autobiographical vanity project.

Word Wars (2004)
Who knew Scrabble could be so exciting?
Posted Jun 11, 2004

3/4
A delightful 'That's Entertainment' for the theater, offering priceless interviews with a who's who of entertainers and behind-the-scenes talent, as well as tantalizing snippets of long-ago performances.

1/4
Writer-director David Twohy has a much bigger budget than he did for Pitch Black, but he makes the all-too-common mistake of believing money can substitute for imagination.
Posted Jun 11, 2004

2/4
Its tonal schizophrenia gets the best of it -- the material careens wildly between sly comedy and creeping suspense, with some ill-advised detours into Borscht-belt humor.

Morlang (2003)
Penning, who also co-wrote the script based on a real-life scandal from the Netherlands, tangles up his timeline so thoroughly that any suspense is strangled out of the story.

2.5/4
Enjoyable if only to hear KarKar perform his mournful and personal songs, including a tender tribute to his late wife.

FireDancer (2003)
While there are enough subtle directorial touches to make you wish Wassel could make a second feature, the low-budget flick Fire Dancer is essentially a more awkward Afghan version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

As a thorough examination of what made this boozing, brawling womanizer tick, Born Into This can't be beat.
