Maybe the most undeserving Best Picture winner ever.

They were right when they said, "Nobody does it better."

Director/writer Robert Rodriguez spins a razzle-dazzle tale for the small fry, filled with gadgets and monsters.

Blood Work (2002)
Twenty-three movies into a mostly magnificent directorial career, Clint Eastwood's efficiently minimalist style finally has failed him. Big time.

... There are enough tacky product placements to open a convenience store.

The story feels more like a serious read, filled with heavy doses of always enticing Sayles dialogue.

Signs (2002)
A field of screams...Signs point to Shyamalan as this generation's Hitchcock.

Bartleby (2002)
It's surprisingly bland despite the heavy doses of weird performances and direction.

The message becomes the savior for "The Country Bears," an equal parts silly and sweet tale that wears its great big ol' heart on its grizzly-sized sleeve.

Any enjoyment will be hinge from a personal threshold of watching sad but endearing characters do extremely unconventional things.

K-19 has some rusty spots, though it maintains enough balance to stay on course with a suspenseful dive.

Very special effects, brilliantly bold colors and heightened reality can't hide the giant Achilles' heel in "Stuart Little 2": There's just no story, folks.

The Emperor's New Clothes is a great movie-going fit.

... it's the lyrical filmmaking - visually, musically and metaphorically - that will be recalled when all is said and done, perhaps as early as awards time.

3.5/5
Using an endearing cast, writer/director Dover Kosashvili takes a slightly dark look at relationships, both sexual and kindred.

Extra-terrestrials conquer the movie if not planet Earth in "Men in Black II," a film that proves how special effects and makeup master Rick Baker can overcome a lot of ills, particularly the lack of basic plot.

4/5
Resident Evil is a rabid zombie thriller that splatters on the screen with gruesome joy. Intense, loud and fast-paced, this is the best video game-turned-movie ever.

The Cat's Meow is a purr-fect return to form for director Peter Bogdanovich. It's rich in the same flavor of his earlier films.

The Scorpion King is more fun than Conan the Barbarian.

Jason X (2002)
Can there really be 10 movies in the "Friday the 13th" film series? That's at least nine (cough, 10) too many.

Unfaithful (2002)
Part drama, part thriller, "Unfaithful" is better than you might imagine. There are many subtle details and intriguing metaphors to Lyne's film that will engage the more faithful viewer.

Affleck's performance is so lightweight that he feels like a secondary character, barely involved with this struggle against a terrorist nuclear attack.

The strong subject matter continues to shock throughout the film. Not everyone will play the dark, challenging tune taught by The Piano Teacher.

Cherish (2002)
It's best to avoid imprisonment with the dull, nerdy folks that inhabit Cherish.

The Bourne Identity is much like a Jackie Chan movie, only with Mr. Matt Damon performing the superman stunts.

4/5
If "Lilo & Stitch" isn't the most edgy piece of Disney animation to hit the silver screen, then this first film to use a watercolor background since "Dumbo" certainly ranks as the most original in years.

1.5/5
Time literally stops on a dime in the tries-so-hard-to-be-cool "Clockstoppers," but that doesn't mean it still won't feel like the longest 90 minutes of your movie-going life.

3.5/5
Singer/composer Bryan Adams contributes a slew of songs - a few potential hits, a few more simply intrusive to the story - but the whole package certainly captures the intended, er, spirit of the piece.

Spider-Man (2002)
They don't make action-adventure movies better than the often spectacular "Spider-Man," the most exciting film re-creation of a superhero since Christopher Reeve donned a red cape and blue tights in "Superman."

Middle-earth is a real world from the first reel on, thanks to incredible special effects woven seamlessly with great storytelling.

Hamlet (2000)

It's a novel take, but sort of like reading Cliff's Notes.

Malena (2000)
It's no wonder [Bellucci's] Malena, as an adult Renato recalls, is the only woman he's never forgotten.
