4/5 One Hour Photo (2002) BeatBoxBetty Staff While Robin 'Rubberface' Williams won't make you pee your pants from laughter -- he will manage to scare the smirk right off your face in this serious psychological thriller. EDIT

Posted Jul 25, 2002
1/5 Deuces Wild (2002) BeatBoxBetty Staff The overkill of slow motion shots made it look more like Michael Jackson's Beat It video than a feature film. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2002

Posted Apr 19, 2002

Posted Apr 19, 2002

Posted Apr 12, 2002

Posted Apr 12, 2002
1.5/5 Big Bad Love (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff If we had more of Debra then I'd be cool with it, but her husband/co-star /writer goes on and on and on. EDIT

Posted Mar 15, 2002
5/5 Monster's Ball (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff While Billy Bob transforms terrifically from a bigot to a noble man in a biracial relationship, Halle is just plain brilliant as a poor and exhausted woman who finally reaches her breaking point. EDIT

Posted Mar 7, 2002
1.5/5 The Time Machine (2002) BeatBoxBetty Staff After a very slow start, this long and drawn out flick with gobs of high speed photography depicting the cycle of life -- just gets old. EDIT

Posted Feb 19, 2002
3/5 Hart's War (2002) BeatBoxBetty Staff The bright spots in this film are Farell's performance and that of Vicellous Shannon who is just riveting as the camp's commanding German officer. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2002
2/5 Crossroads (2002) BeatBoxBetty Staff The good news for you Britney fans is that Crossroads isn't altogether horrific. But it's no classic by any stretch of the imagination either. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2002

Posted Feb 12, 2002

Posted Jan 25, 2002
Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff This mega dose of foley drama turns out to be nothing more than stinky cheese. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2002
Kate & Leopold (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff If I see one more movie with Meg Ryan as a disillusioned career woman who just doesn't believe in love anymore -- I'll blow chunks! EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2001
Charlotte Gray (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff Despite Blanchett's brilliance, Charlotte Gray is still drab. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2001
The Majestic (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff Despite the direction and Landau's performance, The Majestic ends up shooting itself in the foot with nostalgia overload. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff The special effects are stunning. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
Vanilla Sky (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff There's plenty of fluff and puff (and a soundtrack that's way overused) -- but little pay off. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2001
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff I couldn't find much humor in this supposed dark comedy. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2001

Posted Nov 15, 2001

Posted Nov 1, 2001

Posted Nov 1, 2001
The Last Castle (2001) BeatBoxBetty Staff Running at a stealthy 2 hours in length, you can't help but look for the EXIT signs in the theater for a quick getaway. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2001

Posted Oct 19, 2001
