TNT's Rough Cut
What Maisie Knew (2013)
X-Men: First Class (2011)
The Big Parade (1925)
Save the Last Dance (2001)
"A Teen Dance Movie you don't have to remove your brain or be obsessed with getting-down to actually like."
Double Take (2001)
"A huge amount of fun -- the Showgirls of cyberthrillers -- entertaining in ways its creators never intended."
Shadow of the Vampire (2000)
"The performances and the basic strength of the premise make Shadow of the Vampire a relatively diverting ninety minutes."
"It's two-thirds of a terrific movie."
An Everlasting Piece (2001)
"There is nothing worse than forced whimsy and this is forced whimsy at its worst."
State and Main (2000)
"There is enough funny stuff here to make State and Main passably entertaining, despite its complete predictability."
The Gift (2000)
"While not precisely the cinematic equivalent of a lump of coal in our collective stocking, this isn't precisely what we wanted."
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
"This is by no means one of the Coens' best, but it's a reasonably entertaining little exercise in a manner of screwball comedy that is sadly rare these days."
State and Main (2000)
"Mamet has his work cut out for him by making egotistical stars and exploitative directors seem funnily new. But State and Main engages nonetheless."
The Family Man (2000)
"[The] playfully woven combination of cool comedy and realistic romance provides audiences across the board with one of the few films this season that is likely to entertain almost everyone."
Cast Away (2000)
"Even those who perceived Gump as nothing but a smug affirmation of mealymouthed platitudes, and thus hated it, may well be surprised at the subtleties and emotional depth that Cast Away eventually reaches."
Miss Congeniality (2000)
"Gracie isn't just unattractive outside, she's unattractive on the inside, and the whole point of Makeover Movies is you're supposed to want to identify with Cinderella."
"Chocolat will go straight to your heart."
What Women Want (2001)
"It's as caught up in despising macho men as it is disgusted with modern women."
The Emperor's New Groove (2000)
"Really is pretty hysterical."
"A first-rate Chinese action film that can stand with the best."
Proof of Life (2000)
"It's an effective, often gripping film that is likely to satisfy a broad range of viewers."
Dungeons & Dragons (2000)
"Solomon brings absolutely nothing to the party, besides a level of directorial incompetence that one rarely sees in major studio films."
The Next Best Thing (2000)
"Dry dialogue, too many contrived situations and a frightfully wooden performance by Madonna."
"Star Wars remains a cinematic benchmark and a greater fantasy than its countless imitators of the past 20 years."
"Bowfinger is a smart and often hysterical film!"
Hollow Man (2000)
"The film becomes so much urgent nonsense, its killing spree [is] neither cheaply thrilling nor even more cheaply cathartic."
Center Stage (2000)
"It is so bad, it actually made me realize that life doesn't hold try-outs and I should use my time doing better things than watching Center Stage."
The Corruptor (1998)
"The Corruptor is as close as Hollywood's going to get to copying Hong Kong action style!"
"If all history lessons were this stylish, elementary school would have been a better place."
"Is it scary? Sad to say, no, not very often."
Rugrats in Paris - The Movie (2000)
"It was all so cute, I couldn't help but enjoy it."
The Best Man (1999)
"This film oversimplifies the concept of unrequited love, and over-romanticizes the notion of everlasting love."
Three Kings (1999)
"It's full of energy and drops an emotional bomb with its unexpected tale of reluctant heroes."
The Thin Red Line (1998)
"The greatest war movie ever made!"
Final Destination (2000)
"The intentions of this film are to be a clever, dark, horror picture, but it manages only to elevate itself to the level of sheer idiocy."
"Dinosaur does exactly what it should: Take the wee ones on a vicarious trip through an adventure both visually terrifying and emotionally thrilling at the same time."
Lucky Numbers (2000)
"The jokes simply aren't there; and, while some individual scenes work, the overall pacing is uneven."
"Whereas Do the Right Thing left audiences stimulated, at the end of Bamboozled we feel exhausted and confused."
Return to Me (2000)
"I could almost recommend Return to Me to the more saccharine of my acquaintances were it not for a sugary denouement."
28 Days (2000)
"The saddest part about 28 Days is it's more fun when it's drunk."
Godzilla 2000 (2000)
"Godzilla 2000 is the one movie this summer that every parent of a child under 30 must take their kid to go see as a living example of what the joy of movies is all about."
I Got The Hook-Up (1998)
"Personally, I found it in the same league as Clerks, and people call Kevin Smith a genius."
Requiem for a Dream (2000)
"Requiem wants to be about more than drug addiction ... Alas, Requiem is only about drug addiction."
The Replacements (2000)
"Mind-achingly mediocre in every regard."
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
"A silly no-brainer!"
Black and White (2002)
"A flagrant waste of an all-star cast."
Chicken Run (2000)
"What makes Chicken Run so successful is the filmmakers' obvious love for clay animation."
