It's so gosh-darned darling it almost turns your stomach.

1/4
Terminator 2 wrapped things up so thoroughly and in such a satisfying way that all this witless, plodding rehash can do is tell the same story again, a lot less skillfully.

2/4
An excuse for a spectacular series of costume and hair changes, not-so-spectacular stunts and a parade of pointless celebrity cameos.

On_Line (2003)
It's really just about a bunch of pathetic losers whiling away the hours with their hands jammed down their pants.

Director Bret Wood -- no relation to Ed -- sketches the fascinating history of Wayman's highway safety films.

Bonhoeffer (2003)
The life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the pacifist theologian in Germany who spoke out openly and strongly against Hitler, would make one hell of a movie. Unfortunately, Martin Doblmeier's documentary Bonhoeffer isn't it.

Alex & Emma (2003)
[The film] fails despite Kate Hudson's tinkling laugh and Luke Wilson's likably laconic presence.

Hulk (2003)
This messy, disappointing, self-important and utterly humorless version of the Marvel comic book character may be the toughest flick with a green protagonist to sit through since The Grinch.

Suriyothai (2003)
An eye-popping if lumbering spectacle.

Friday Night (2003)
If you give yourself over to it, this romantic tale of a liberating one-night stand proves oddly seductive and generates a warm afterglow.

Before long, you lose track of who is who and who is doing what to whom.

Pistol Opera (2001)
There's style and panache to spare.

Jet Lag (2003)
An alarmingly unfunny French comedy where the two main characters are constantly yakking on a cell phone at an airport.
Posted Jun 13, 2003

A dull and creaky soap opera.

2.5/4
A raft of impressive performances -- and a dose of lunatic unpredictability -- float this verbose debut from writer-director Scott Roberts.

1/4
There's little action in this snail-paced bore, you'll need a high-powered magnifying glass to spot the comedy and the 'buddies' have about as much chemistry as a pair of wet socks.

Even dumberer than the original.

The amazing story of Edith Hahn Beer, an Austrian Jew who survived the Holocaust by passing herself off as Aryan.

2.5/4
Beyond the ill-conceived odorama gimmick, the new Rugrats movie ... is harmless, if slightly hyperactive, fun.

Manito (2003)
Eason has crafted a small, independent film that has an outsized impact.

A lark for anyone who's willing to check their brains at the concession stand for 100 minutes.

Wildly uneven romantic drama.

Whale Rider (2003)
A contemporary version of an aboriginal legend from New Zealand that should delight audiences of all ages.

Hong Kong brothers Oxide and Danny Pang manage to deliver real skin-prickling jolts.

Garmento (2002)

Plays like a bad daytime soap opera.

2/4
Filmmakers Sam Green and Bill Siegel tend to shy from tough questions, allowing their subjects to wax nostalgic about bomb-throwing as yet another youthful folly of the '70s.

The movie belongs to Bollywood sex symbol Urmila Matondkar, who is terrific as the possessed wife.

Finding Nemo (2003)

Shokrian, who was born in Tehran, is trying to say something about assimilation and xenophobia, but the predictable story and stereotypical characters do him in.

A remarkable and shattering documentary.

1/4
The intent was apparently a Sergio Leone-ish black comedy, but the leaden pacing, somnambulant performances and incessant symbolism in nearly every shot will soon have you thinking that The Three Marias is three too many.

3/4
A four-handkerchief heart-tugger about paternal love that's irresistible even if it's somewhat cliched.

2/4
Watching The Italian Job in a theater makes you long for a fast-forward button -- to skip past 90 eyeball-glazing minutes of generic caper plotting and cut to the chase, as it were.

Colette (1951)
I was especially impressed by Colette, in which the author of Claudine gets nostalgic about the houses where she's lived and worked.

Marker and Bellon pay fond tribute to Denise Bellon, a French photojournalist from the '30s and '40s who, by no coincidence, was co-director Bellon's mother.

Gigantic (2002)
It's hard to go wrong with documentary subjects as articulate and intriguing as childhood friends John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

The In-Laws (2003)
A strenuous attempt to recycle a vastly funnier minor classic.

Respiro (2003)
Respiro has a sexy cast and is gorgeous to watch -- but it takes more than that to make a movie worth seeking out.

The problem is that Bruce is an unlikable, self-centered character.
