Badlands (1974)
A fantastic debut by Malick, who has never lived up to the promise since.

Taking Lives (2004)
It's beginning to seem as though large breasts and a willingness to flaunt them are the only attributes that separate Ms. Jolie from, say, Cuba Gooding Jr.

Moving, gripping, and powerful, suspenseful, stylish, and literate.

Those vehicles sure are big, they come right at you, and they're in one heck of a hurry. For about 40 minutes, that's all you really need.

Some judicious editing would make a huge improvement, however, because even at 90 minutes, it feels like Blamire's stretching the joke a bit thin.

Spartan (2004)
The problem with Spartan isn't so much that it's mediocre but that it could be a whole lot better.

Big Business (1988)
Fred Ward plays dumb hicks a lot, but never with quite this much comedic energy.

Melanie Griffith looks hot in that dark wig; too bad she ditches it so quickly.

Simon Magus (2001)
A little too proud of its own eccentricities, often at the expense of the story.

The worst in the series --s till an acceptable actioner, but more calculated than it's predecessors (and successor)

4/5
The movie is long, but doesn't feel that way, and despite a dearth of interesting visuals after the first 20 minutes, it makes for a welcome change of pace from Hollywood

Ridley Scott in rare form. Chick power!

Ringmaster (1998)
I think you have to applaud the absurdity of the concept, even if the execution ain't always all that.

Dirty Work (1998)
Okay starring vehicle for Norm MacDonald, but you'd think he could do better.

I liked it as a kid, and have liked it less and less every year since.

A really cool horror gem that may not be faithful but is certainly atmospheric

Eurotrip (2003)
The opening credits...are a high point, but if you're not a prude, the rest of the flick ain't bad either.
Posted Feb 27, 2004

Club Dread (2004)
[A] whole lot better than the comedy troupe's last feature Super Troopers. Unfortunately, measured by any other standard, it's simply a mediocre effort
Posted Feb 27, 2004

Better than a hundred current "thrillers."

It is a pleasure and a delight to welcome director Sara Sugarman and her fine inventiveness into the machine.

If you're going to mismatch director and material so thoroughly, try getting it even more drastically wrong, like hiring Gaspar Noe or Neil LaBute.

[I]t seems as though Adam Sandler is trying to compile a Greatest Hits film...it plays more like a collection of B-sides and outtakes

The Dreamers (2004)
Just the dose of relatable mainstream art the U.S. cinema desperately requires.

The Crow (1994)
Totally dated, totally terrific. "Darker-than-thou" types should stay to listen to Jane over the end credits

The Barbershop franchise is like Cheers for people who aren't boring.

[R]elative to My Baby's Daddy, the actors' recent projects, among them Kangaroo Jack and Double Take, look like comedy gold.

Frankly, those of us for whom the SAT is a distant memory may not find it in our hearts to be all that sympathetic to a bunch of whiny kids afraid to take a test.

Grandberry and Houston are two of the most enjoyable musicians to appear onscreen since Sting played a bellboy.

Misery (1990)
Pretty good for a James Caan movie.

An animated extravaganza of Gallic wit and soul that delivers more wild humanity than many of the year's live-action features. In a word: Go.
