The Tracker (2003)
An engrossing drama.

2/4
Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination.

An entertaining treat that proves there's plenty of life left in traditional 2-D animation.

Torque (2004)
A full-throttle video-game ride for the MTV set.

The finished product looks like it was thrown together during a lunch break -- by a drunk person.

2/4
A feather-light, doggedly formulaic romantic comedy that's almost instantly forgettable despite the sunny presence of teen queen Mandy Moore.

Monster (2004)
Jenkins doesn't stint on the sickening reality of Wuornos' abhorrent behavior -- it's Theron's complex, deeply felt depiction of a thoroughly messed-up soul that forces us to look beyond the monstrous nature of her acts.

3/4
The Company (2003)
Altman presents a fly-on-the-wall insight into the lives of a group of people whose public face is one of unadulterated grace and beauty - but whose private existence is as disorderly as anyone's.

A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.

1.5/4
All you need to know about the slapdash, bogus kiddie flick Cheaper by the Dozen can be summed up by the fact that Ashton Kutcher, making a glorified cameo as a narcissistic model-slash- actor, is the best thing in it.

Paycheck (2003)
Unlike Woo's Face/Off or Broken Arrow, there are no stunts, special effects or kinetic moments in Paycheck that really blow you away.

3.5/4
An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of Gone With the Wind with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.

Peter Pan (2003)

Despite its more tendentious moments and sometimes irritating slickness, Fog of War is every bit as fascinating and unnerving as its subject.

3/4
Calendar Girls may be boomer-baiting formula, but this ingratiating, big-hearted holiday treat is as British as plum pudding -- and the closest thing on the market to the famous Ealing comedies.
Posted Dec 19, 2003

2/4
Sanctimonious, relentlessly predictable and willfully ignorant of the period it's set in.

A grim, challenging movie that will amply reward audiences willing to go along with its ride into the dark depths of its characters' souls.

AKA (2002)
Watching three frames at once is disconcerting at first, but eventually the experience gives the film a high-tech boost.

2.5/4
It would be hard to overpraise Johansson -- who could hardly look more perfect for the part -- for her extraordinary ability to convey so much emotion with so few words.
Posted Dec 12, 2003

2/4
Overripe dialogue and a fevered score fail to inject any real tension, and the accentless English spoken throughout a film set entirely in France is ludicrous and jarring.

A sexed-up Afterschool Special pretty much guaranteed to render audiences comatose.

Unchallenging fluff.

Stuck on You (2003)
While the belly laughs are few, there are numerous chuckles and it's quite watchable, thanks to solid performances by Damon and Kinnear.

3/4
Power Trip (2003)
The entire dispute is bizarre, and Devlin taps into that. His approach is light-hearted but never flip, balancing the company's plight and the public's ire.

3.5/4
Big Fish (2003)
There are quirks aplenty in Big Fish, but spirited performances from a talented cast, led by a standout Finney as the slippery-fish raconteur, help domesticate the wall-to-wall weirdness.

3/4
Coming-of-age movies are usually pretty dismal, so it's refreshing to discover Monsieur Ibrahim, one that's worth recommending.

1/4
Honey (2003)
Its by-the- numbers plot is depressingly familiar, and each line of dialogue is so predictable that the script could have been generated by a computer.
Posted Dec 5, 2003

2.5/4
A rough-hewn, modest little road movie of sorts, elevated by a trio of compelling performances and a desire to take the narrative road less traveled.

Samir's presentation is uninspired and too long. It's outdated, too.

A pandering epic that's as phony as it is condescending.

Perry, a longtime filmmaker, should have given the doc more urgency and punch.

Some of the afflictions are so disturbing, you might have to turn your eyes from the children. Susan Tom doesn't have that option. And 11 children are all the better for it.

Absorbing documentary.

In America (2003)
It's a wistful yet penetrating film, shot through with magic realism and life-affirming humor, that gets you deep down where you live.

The Cooler (2003)
The best thing Baldwin has done in years, and a triumph of low-budget storytelling by a director to watch.

Director Trapero drives home his message -- the thin line between crooks and cops -- without hitting viewers over the head or seeming to point fingers.

The advertising slogan for The Haunted Mansion warns, 'Check your pulse at the door' -- pretty cheeky for a movie that flatlines for almost all of its 98 minutes.
