3.5/4
Proof that Hollywood can make a smart $150 million movie that doesn't insult the audience's intelligence.

Tupac: Resurrection gives us a little bit of both but, more than that, leaves us with the impression that Tupac Shakur had a lot more left to say.

2.5/4
This is a micro-budgeted tribute to Hollywood musicals of the '40s and '50s that's all the more endearing for its flaws.

2.5/4
A runaway train of pratfalls (for the kids) and in-jokes (for the adults), spiked with scores of cameos from Looney Tunes staples such as Marvin the Martian, Foghorn Leghorn, Tweety Bird, Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzalez.

2.5/4
Ultimately has a somewhat unfinished quality that complements the movie's themes -- and Hall's haunting performance.

My Architect (2004)
An immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them.

Balseros (2003)
Well-done documentary.

3.5/4
The powerfully understated charmer, The Station Agent, is nothing more - and nothing less -- than the quiet study of a gently unfurling friendship between three misfits.

As IMAX nature films go, this is one of the more absorbing ones.

Martin & Orloff might have worked as a 10-minute sketch, but Lawrence Blume's low-budget feature quickly wears thin.

A mediocre music documentary.

Needless to say, In My Skin isn't for everybody. It's recommended to viewers who, like Esther, want to feel something, no matter how distasteful.

Anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.

The fine cast, the elegant settings and the swoony title song somehow draw you in.

1.5/4
A dog's dinner of profiles, repetitive narration, safety tips and banal 'insights' into the joys and dangers of cresting waves that sometimes reach 70 feet.

Slick but uneven romantic comedy.

This is reality filmmaking -- a fascinating front-row seat for what could be history's shortest-lived coup.

What Gertrude Stein famously said about Oakland applies equally to Revolutions -- after all the secrets are revealed, there's no there, there.

2.5/4
Occasionally stagy and flat, Die is worth seeing for Busch's grand performance.

A compelling, sexy and often moving film.

Apart from the obvious problem that findings from this period are already dated, the scatter-shot approach of filmmakers Donovan Leitch and Rebecca Chaiklin gives too many issues too little time.

Girlhood (2003)

3.5/4
It's worth seeing Alien, which established Scott as an A-list director, in a theater because his brilliant and often expansive visuals have always worked better on a big screen than on video.

2.5/4
Beyond Borders makes an earnest stab at illustrating the hardships and sacrifices humanitarian workers contend with -- but in the end, all the suffering merely forms an amorphous backdrop for a Harlequin romance.

Mediocre spoof.

Radio (2003)
It's hard to say what's more offensive about the out-of-tune Radio -- Cuba Gooding Jr. trying to ingratiate himself by mugging up a storm as a mentally challenged man, or the mawkish narrative surrounding him like so much syrup.

Sister Helen (2002)
If she hadn't become a nun late in life -- after her husband and two of her three kids met tragic deaths -- Sister Helen would have made a great Army drill instructor.

It is worth catching The Singing Detective to see the brilliant Robert Downey Jr. in another extraordinary performance.

3/4
Elephant (2003)
The minimalist Elephant is not going to satisfy audiences who need everything spelled out for them, but others will find it a refreshing approach to social problems that defy facile explanations.

1.5/4
Brother Bear (2003)
An uninspired recycling of themes that were far more gripping in The Lion King and countless other earlier Mouse House classics.

Alas, good intentions do not always a good movie make.

In the Cut (2003)
In the Cut is what Hollywood calls a 'tweener,' attempting the difficult feat of being both an art film and a commercial thriller -- but failing at both.

Straight or gay, viewers will find 9 Dead Gay Guys offensive and unwatchable.

Hedges has crafted a warmhearted holiday film that stands as a small classic in its bittersweet illustration of the unbreakable bond of family.

2/4
Though it becomes almost laughably melodramatic and wields just about every rock-movie cliche in the book, Gershon's latest holds interest, thanks to her fiercely committed and sexy performance.

Returner (2002)
Returner was a huge hit in Japan, but this would- be sci-fi epic is soporific, shamelessly derivative and barely coherent by American standards.

Sylvia (2003)
Paltrow is clearly committed to plumbing the depths of Plath's suffering, but this frigid and inaccessible period piece wears its glumness like a shroud.

Shamelessly schmaltzy biopic.

Runaway Jury (2003)
May slip a cog or two in terms of plausibility but, thanks to robust performances, slick pacing and a smart script that opens up the typically restrictive genre, the verdict comes down in its favor.

A splatterfest remake that relentlessly assaults the senses and mind with no discernable redeeming social value.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a duller, more incompetent -- and less scary -- flick with cheesier effects in a remainder bin crammed with direct-to-video horrors.

It's a drawn-out look at politics that's largely devoid of the trademark humor that long ago got New Wave veteran Chabrol labeled the Gallic Hitchcock.
