4/5
Blade Runner (1982)
I still think the movie loses steam when it goes indoors -- but one cannot deny its influence

Modigliani (2004)
No one expected a documentary, but serious art-history students may feel let down.

UNDEAD (2005)
The plot keeps you guessing and is constantly throwing the characters off track; only the camp factor prohibits you from caring quite as much as you should.

Rebound (2005)
Martin Lawrence and Tom Arnold in the same movie together. If that sounds good to you, be aware that you will probably never agree with anything a film critic says ever again

One of the best ways to make a large catastrophe comprehensible to the average joe is by showing it through the eyes of one person
Posted Jun 27, 2005
6
An amiable, if not exactly novel, Spanish farce

7
As Sharkboy, a young oceanographer raised by talking sharks, Lautner is a rare standout -- a child actor with a dark side.

Rize (2005)
...you get the feeling LaChapelle either missed something or simply didn't want to see any possible influences from "white" pop culture. They're there.

...touches on some universal truths about paternal relationships.

5/5
Balls-to-the-wall swordplay flicks don't get much better than this
Posted May 28, 2005
11
...has a Hitchcockian sense of suspense to it
Posted May 28, 2005
12
Dolls (2002)
...this anthology of tragic tales is never dull and always a feast for the eyes.
Posted May 28, 2005
13
The plot may be a little hard to follow, but the film-making is skillful and any effort on the viewer's part is well worth it
Posted May 28, 2005
14
If retro ain't your thing, fear not; this doesn't feel dated in the least.
Posted May 28, 2005
15
Spin (2004)
Essentially a feature-length infomercial for white-Latino interracial relationships
Posted May 28, 2005

3/5
Misery (1990)
Not as good as the book, but Kathy Bates is perfect
Posted May 28, 2005
17
Were it not for the subtitles, it would be virtually guaranteed instant cult status
Posted May 28, 2005

5/5
A sort of Heart of Darkness in South America

Araki seems to have finally taken in a few Todd Solondz movies, then realized that abusing actor James Duval delivers nowhere near the shock value of abusing children.

4/5
One of Scorsese's very best

Unleashed (2005)
The premise is so absurd that one would have to play it slightly tongue-in-cheek for the film to be any fun at all, [but] director Louis Leterrier goes the opposite direction

...you may not get more than you thought, but it delivers exactly what you think it will.
Posted May 12, 2005
24
Mindhunters (2005)
It's not about the characters, or the dramatic tension, or any kind of believability. It's about how cool the death scenes are, and on that score, Harlin is a champ.
Posted May 12, 2005
25
Her Majesty (2001)
An enjoyable family viewing experience.
Posted May 11, 2005

Eddie Murphy's infamous objection to the original story still stands: Why don't these white people just leave the house when they figure out there's a ghost in the house?
Posted Apr 21, 2005
27
Madison (2005)
...unless your specific field of interest happens to be hydroplane boats in small towns, it's unlikely you'll be excited by Madison.
Posted Apr 21, 2005

...should be a major crowd-pleaser among those who realize there's more than one game called "football" in the world.
Posted Apr 21, 2005

...it's a shame about the R rating: Most of these fights are so cartoony that there's no reasonable danger of children copying them, and they're sure to enjoy the movie.

Germann is the whole show here, which might not be so bad if he played to his quirky strengths. Instead, he's stuck playing Tim Allen
Posted Apr 14, 2005
31
Double Dare (2005)
If you're a straight male and don't find [Zoe Bell] to be one of the most desirable women on earth after all this, check your pulse.
Posted Apr 14, 2005
32
Hostage (2005)
...harrowing and brutal, and, as a result, extremely tense.
Posted Apr 8, 2005
33
The Ring Two (2005)
Even if you buy the basic premise of a ghost on videotape, the tortuous logic demanded to create a sequel doesn't hold up to reasonable scrutiny
Posted Apr 8, 2005
34
Steamboy (2005)
...for a fun drinking game, take a sip every time steam loudly hisses out of something
Posted Apr 8, 2005

Alien Nation (1988)
Fun gimmick cop movie with aliens

3/5
Borstal Boy (2002)
Hatosy's Irish accent was way better than I expected.
Posted Apr 8, 2005
37
Ice Princess (2005)
Though Disney's incessant promotion of Hilary Duff has made casual moviegoers run from teen-girl flicks as fast as they can, Ice Princess may bring a few back.

5/5
Even as a cynical, anti-romantic teen, I loved this movie.
Posted Apr 8, 2005

Ethan Mao (2004)
For a low-budget indie with no special effects, Ethan Mao is a treat to look at.
Posted Apr 8, 2005

Off the Map (2003)
There's very scant plot here; rather, it feels like a sort of escapist fantasy for celebrities in the big city who get tired of all the people surrounding them.

3/5
Not as bad as you'd expect

It doesn't seem like we have any good answers for them. But we could start by paying attention to their stories.

The Jacket (2005)
the first great film of 2005

Wong has a reputation for slow-moving mood pieces in which very little happens, but that's not the case here.
Posted Mar 3, 2005
45
The humor is so cartoonish that it's impossible to take the "serious" content as being representative of anything remotely real.

Sabrina (1954)
A semi-classic for the semi-literate.

Von Sydow was better in Strange Brew, but still rather sweet.
