The 24th Day (2004)
Boasts one of the most ludicrous plots ever committed to digital video.

1.5/4
Troy (2004)
The lackluster ensemble hired by the director is overwhelmed by the generally impressive sets and crowd scenes (aided by computer-generated images), by the task of playing epic heroes and by David Benioff's rambling, tone-deaf screenplay.

For the most part, Breakin' All the Rules feels like a Richard (Love Actually) Curtis film but without the inventiveness and wit.

3/4
The Junction (2004)
Most telling, perhaps, is the junction itself. Once filled with houses and orange groves, it is now no more than dusty rubble.
Posted May 13, 2004

There are several admiring -- and often hilarious -- interviews with an astounding array of Curtis' surviving pals.

A short (48 minutes) and sweet tribute to the British folk singer.

3/4
An entertaining look at America's obesity epidemic and a lively exploration of personal versus corporate responsibility.

1.5/4
A premise that is equal parts silly and cynical is stretched over 90 uncomfortable minutes, hitting just about every relationship cliché imaginable with incongruous spurts of graphic sex talk spiking the mostly ho-hum dialogue.

Oasis (2003)
You'll have to look long and hard to find a performance as emotionally raw as that of Moon So-ri.

Hirsch ... gives a brave, affecting performance.

Van Helsing (2004)
Van Helsing is more amusing and exciting than frightening.

1.5/4
In trying to straddle both the grown-up and kiddie worlds with this inappropriately sexualized effort ... the Olsens have lost their footing.

All three actresses are wonderful, but the picture belongs to the commanding Gorintin.

There's no mistaking Saddest for anything but a Maddin production. An exceptional one, at that.

Envy (2004)
An embarrassingly unfunny black comedy.

Written by Masud and his wife, Catherine Masud, the script is intelligent and affecting.

As Daniel is drawn deeper into Kyril's web of shady business dealings, the film completely loses its way.

Godsend (2003)
Lame, leaden and unthrilling.

1.5/4
A sluggish meander through the life of the man considered by many to be a deity of golfing.

2/4
Pierce Brosnan is impossibly suave; Julianne Moore is faultlessly lovely. But the heat they generate together couldn't spark a Boy Scout's campfire.

2/4
Mean Girls (2004)
It's an improvement over the dire Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, but Mean Girls is nowhere near as satisfying as Freaky Friday.
Posted Apr 30, 2004

2.5/4
It's a surprisingly charming and fresh comedy that only becomes painfully saccharine in its last 20 minutes.

3/4
Stylish flick, which harkens back to the work of old masters like Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu.
Posted Apr 22, 2004

2/4
A thriller that shamelessly rummages through other movies in search of shocks.

MC5: A True Testimonial should please die-hard fans as well as viewers who have never heard the band and its anthem, 'Kick Out the Jams.'
Posted Apr 22, 2004

2.5/4
If you can overlook its TV-episode look, occasional lapses in logic and detours into lurid overkill, this old-school psychological thriller, which marries a tracking-the- serial-killer narrative with occult themes, is a creepy diversion.

Uses archival footage and music to tell a moving story that's all too common in the Third World.

3/4
Offers a rare, fly- on-the-wall view of three Hollywood bad boys -- Sean Penn, Nick Nolte and Woody Harrelson -- as they rehearse for a play in San Francisco in the fall of 2000.

2/4
Man on Fire (2004)
Man on Fire feels vaguely like something left over from the 1980s, when action heroes were one-note tough guys methodically picking off baddies.

A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance set in Mexico City.

Gypsy 83 (2001)
A depressingly predictable journey of self-discovery.

Young Adam (2004)
Besides terrific performances, it boasts terrific cinematography by Giles Nuttgens that contrasts stunningly beautiful and grimly ugly Scottish landscapes.

Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette unveil powerful pipes delivering this numbing battery of overly familiar songs, but the aural sledgehammer fails to fully divert attention from the paper-thin plotting.

The Punisher (2004)
Travolta is terrific as a bad guy, making Saint almost sympathetic. His co-stars however, flounder in a sea of bad lines, with poor Romijn-Stamos getting stuck with the worst.

The Alamo (2004)
Despite Thornton's yeoman efforts and a remarkable 52-acre set, you're more apt to forget The Alamo than to remember it.

A dumb, pointless sequel.

Though shamelessly derivative and amoral, The Girl Next Door is nevertheless funnier and smarter than most of the pathetic dreck aimed at the nation's teens.

Showboy (2002)
A no-budget vanity production that almost instantly wears out its welcome.

At turns sexy, ultra-violent and sweet, it will infiltrate your brain long after you've seen it.

An ugly-looking mismash of a fairytale.

This satisfying adaptation of a popular novel is mostly an artistic reflection on youthful loss of innocence.

Marathon (2002)
The real star ... is Michael Simmonds, whose manic black-and-white camerawork captures the unique vibrancy of New York City.

3/4
Hickenlooper is interested not just in chronicling the L.A. music scene, but in sympathetically presenting a man who has spent his life doing little but hanging out with celebrities.
