2.5/5
Rollerball (2002)
Most probably the only people who would get a kick out of a movie of Rollerball's ilk are wrestling fans or those who are able to see it for free.

Unfortunately, when Yuri and Alexei are introduced, the movie sort of goes downhill a little bit.

Note to the filmmakers: if your goal was to get the audience to feel the characters' pain and suffering, congratulations. It worked.

4.5/5
Firth exudes a Ralph Fiennes-like smoldering charisma, taking a role that Fiennes himself would probably never stoop to accept.

It's a heroic movie about an unheroic moment in American history.

This is the type of movie best enjoyed by frat boys and college kids while sucking on the bong and downing one alcoholic beverage after another.

Ali (2001)
ALI is an impressive documentation of a man and an era.

The last time I felt this let down was when Bill Buckner let a certain ground ball roll between his legs during the 1986 World Series.

Lost Highway (1997)
The Man With No Eyebrows will go down in my books as the single greatest fictitious creation of all time.

Howard makes it much more bearable by keeping the tension to a maximum and the potential for nausea to a minimum.

Anyone with an extra pocket calculator may as well hand it over right now. Call me a freak, call me a geek, but I really enjoyed this movie.

Amélie (2001)
After witnessing firsthand the pleasures of Amelie Poulain's little world, I realized its oddball sense works greatly in the movie's favor.

NO MAN'S LAND is the best war movie since SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.

Ghost World (2001)
Thora Birch has the difficult and unenviable task of making this girl likeable, and she succeeds with flying colors.

3/5
Gosford Park (2001)
Even with some huge names of British stage and film topping the bill, and a sharp dissection of class distinctions, its scope is too encompassing to be completely enjoyable.

Vanilla Sky (2001)
Sort of like a second-rate Mulholland Drive, but that would be giving it too much credit.

As Frank, Dean, Sammy, Peter and Joey might have said, "Ocean's 11 ... it's a gas, man!"

Bandits (2001)
How can I say this without being a heartless bastard? BANDITS absolutely sucked.

3.5/5
The way (cinematographer Roger Deakins) plays with shadow and light hearkens back to a time when film noir was really something to behold.

Fat Girl (2001)
While I was able to appreciate what Breillat was trying to say regarding sisterhood, adolescence, and sexuality, FAT GIRL was a pain in the butt to sit through.

The Deep End (2001)
(Tilda Swinton gives) perhaps the best performance from any actor I've seen so far this year.

2.5/5
Sexy Beast (2000)
Thanks to Kingsley, the movie isn't entirely unwatchable, but I must warn you: don't be fooled by the short running time; Sexy Beast is a long movie.

Memento (2000)
MEMENTO is not just a movie, but a puzzle.

Startup.com (2001)
Acts as both a caution and a requiem for the enthusiasm and wasted energies of those caught in the middle of the dot.com revolution.

I am now officially a Harry Potter fan. And that, I think, is the highest compliment a movie can get.

Shallow Hal (2001)
The moral of the story, according to the Farrellys? Date a fat chick, and supermodels will flock to your door.

I hate to sound cliche, but Monsters, Inc. really is the feel-good movie of the year.

5/5
Drags you along on a cat-and-mouse game that's much like life itself; just when you think you have everything figured out, you realize you don't have a clue.

It's a powerful, affecting portrait of a young woman trying simultaneously to rebel and find her roots.

From Hell (2001)
I completely lost interest in the final 20 minutes.

Blade Runner (1982)
Blade Runner is a pretty good sci-fi thriller, and it's beyond me while Harrison Ford says it's his least favorite.

THE CENTER OF THE WORLD is a lot like its subject, strippers; it looks great, but leaves you oddly unfulfilled.

Hearts In Atlantis takes way too much time getting to the point ... and it never seems to figure out exactly what that point is.

Rock Star (2001)
Sex with Jennifer Aniston, or sex with hundreds of underage, wild, horny groupies? Hmmm ... now there's a tough decision I wouldn't mind making.

O (2001)
Instead of banning things like this, we should be showing them; a movie like O could teach us all a lesson in humanity.

"This is the first situation I've ever heard of where apparently one's ability to dance half naked on top of a bar is enough to gain them admittance to the bar."
