The Gift (2000)
You can't escape the feeling that everyone involved deserved something better.

The Pledge (2001)
Yes, it's grim, but if you don't need your plots sugar-coated, this film about life-change, obsession and keeping your word is an existential winner.

Snatch (2001)
While watching Snatch, you'll sometimes wish the dialogue had subtitles and the movie came equipped with a plot synopsis. But you're bound to leave the theater with a smile.

In this age when dumb, broad, easy-to-market comedy continues to rule, Mr. Mamet's literary wit is always welcome.

Thirteen Days will make you shudder, but only in ways the filmmakers intended.
Posted Jan 11, 2001
6
Seems more concerned with pushing demographic style buttons than creating a story with any depth.

7
Double Take (2001)
The kind of movie you'll encounter in the wasteland of late-night cable -- and watch with a measure of awe.
Posted Jan 11, 2001
8
A giddy merriment blessed with the Coens' skewed signature wit and the year's best soundtrack.
Posted Jan 11, 2001
9
Antitrust (2001)
10
Traffic (2000)
A triumph from all perspectives.
Posted Jan 5, 2001
11
Warm and likable -- and, during the holidays, warm and likable is often what moviegoers want.
Posted Dec 24, 2000
12
Comes close to evoking the book's haunting power, its comedy, wisdom and pain about childhoods passing.

Dracula 2000 (2000)
It doesn't always work, but it does manage hold our interest.
Posted Dec 22, 2000
14
Once in a great while, a movie engages us so thoroughly that we slip the surly bonds of Earth and experience a rare moment of transcendence. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is such a movie.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
15
Cast Away (2000)
An exquisite film that gratifies our senses and our emotions.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
16
The screenplay lacks any sense of consistency, treating all the contestants derisively -- and then trying to convince us that, deep down, they're all really wonderful women.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
17
Once we get past the initial appearance, everything about The Family Man is recycled.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
18
Chocolat (2000)
Beautiful to look at and easy to digest.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
19
The majority of its gags fall woefully flat, and its brief, 83-minute running time often seems to drag for an eternity.
Posted Dec 18, 2000
20
Liberates [Gibson] from the confines of an action hero, and he takes full flight.
Posted Dec 14, 2000
21
Quills (2000)
The Gothic tale grabs the eyeballs and keeps them transfixed to the screen.
Posted Dec 14, 2000
22
An amusing but predictable knock-off of themes that have been done much better.
Posted Dec 14, 2000
23
The film is still paint-by-numbers.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
24
Richard Lester's tangential, effortlessly clever ode to the Fab Four, given the re-mastered print and soundtrack treatment, still feels fresh and alive.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
25
The story often thrills with its message about the sinister homogeneity of evil and how good can prevail only if diverse types join together to do what's right.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
26
Director Martin Campbell (The Mask of Zorro, Goldeneye) sets out to meld a heart-tugging tale of reconciliation with a high-altitude thriller. For the most part he succeeds.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
27
Mission to Mars is blandly directed by Brian De Palma.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
Beloved (1998)

Big Daddy (1999)

Road Trip (2000)

Chill Factor (1999)
Hard as the two actors strive for lovable eccentricity, they emerge as irritating oddities.

So tired and dated.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Three Kings (1999)
On any hip-o-meter, Three Kings rules.

Wickedly funny when it bares its fangs.

The initial feel of Cruel Intentions is so audacious that the comedown is truly a letdown.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
8MM (1999)
Eight Millimeter demonstrates the extent that non-challenging roles have stymied Mr. Cage's talent.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
Hollow Man (2000)
Too bad they couldn't figure out a way to make the whole movie invisible.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Good and old-fashioned.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
