3/4 The Passion of the Christ (2004) Greg Dean Schmitz I can't bring myself to condemn this film... [Gibson] made the film he was inspired to make, which included writing, directing, producing, financing and marketing [it] himself EDIT

3.5/4 28 Days Later (2002) Greg Dean Schmitz I've never seen a vampire... but a gang of swarming, bloodthirsty people... now that's scary. And so is this movie. EDIT

3.5/4 Hulk (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz Ang Lee's treatment is deadly serious, but a lack of winking humor is appropriate in the case of this dark heroic tale, and the action sequences are riveting, thrilling and cathartic. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2003
A Decade Under the Influence (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz an entertaining introduction of the "auteur directors" that emerged from 1968 to 1978 EDIT

The Guys (2002) Greg Dean Schmitz Besides the fact that it's about 9/11, it's also an effective film because you learn something about the lives of the firemen who are willing to lay down their lives for our safety, which was true long before the year 2001 EDIT

Lost in La Mancha (2002) Greg Dean Schmitz If something about you causes you to root for Terry Gilliam too, you should definitely seek this film out EDIT

3/4 Song for a Raggy Boy (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz If this had been fictional, I probably would have been harsher on the story, but since it's a true story, what would have been a weakness can be perceived as a strength EDIT
Posted May 2, 2003
3/4 MC5: A True Testimonial (2002) Greg Dean Schmitz the story of the MC5 is one that is trapped between art and politics... just like they were EDIT
Posted May 2, 2003
3/4 Prey for Rock and Roll (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz an effective musical drama about the dream that female rockers out there are still pursuing, often for years... that particular story is not told that often, which makes this film worth seeking out EDIT
Posted May 2, 2003
1/5 The Punisher (1990) Greg Dean Schmitz The only positive spin I can put on this movie is that if bad comic adaptations like it hadn't been done in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Marvel never would have needed to have its current, high-quality big-screen resurgence. EDIT

4/4 X2 (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz Would this sequel not just live up to being a sequel of the first film, but even more closely live up to the expectations of fans, some of whom have been fans for over three decades? YES. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2003
3/4 The Real Cancun (2003) Greg Dean Schmitz Somewhere between Jackass with girls and an R-rated version of MTV's The Real World ... Better than The Bachelor, Joe Millionaire or American Idol. EDIT

3/4 Zu, Warriors From the Magic Mountain (1983) Greg Dean Schmitz This 1983 fantasy kung fu classic is pure visual flash and thrill, making up for in 'eye candy' what it lacks in a story EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2001
4/4 Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz a dense comedy (whereas Jay is just... dense), which is to say there are more jokes... than in any comedy I've seen in a long time EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2001
4/4 The Turandot Project (2000) Greg Dean Schmitz This is a classic 'East meets West' situation, and it's great fun to watch it all come together. EDIT

Posted Jun 12, 2001
3/4 Evolution (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz The part of me that grew up reading sci-fi novels was tickled just enough, and the comedy was just (barely) funny enough, for me to recommend this. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2001
3/4 The Animal (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz Considering that this is a movie about a man whose sex drive is controlled by animal urges, I was expecting a lot worse everytime a goat or cow appared on screen EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2001

2/4 Swordfish (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz Strictly style above content, to the point that even cracking is shown as being a bit like Tetris EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2001
2/4 Sexy Beast (2000) Greg Dean Schmitz Like a sandwich with great bread and distracting meat EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2001
3.5/4 Lost and Delirious (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz Piper Perabo is the real winner here, with a role that showcases her flamboyant acting style and personality we didn't see in 'Coyote Ugly.' EDIT

4/4 Children Underground (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz If you have a stomach for harrowing, depressing true tales of man's inhumanity to man, Children Underground is a fantastic document of a nation's priorities gone wild. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2001
4/4 Dogtown and Z-Boys (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz The rebellion, the rock music, and the frenetic introduction to skating culture all combine to make [this] one of the most entertaining and fun movies of the year. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2001
3/4 Otomo (2000) Greg Dean Schmitz I was impressed by the decision to make Otomo a bit of an anti-hero, seeming aware that in desperate times, good people may say or do things outside the norm. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2001
3/4 A Knight's Tale (2001) Greg Dean Schmitz What a great idea to plunder the history books (and Renaissance airs) and single out a now-defunct sport like jousting. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2001
